Final Deathly Hallows Debates: Who Lives and Who Dies?

We know for sure that some characters are going to die in Deathly Hallows. Last year in an interview, J.K. Rowling said that two characters die who she had not originally thought would die in the end of the story. That means at least two characters die, but probably more. And that's probably not counting Harry and/or Voldemort. So who lives and who dies? Tell us who you think will die, and more importantly, why you think so.

Reader Comments:

I must say that I have a bad feeling that one of the two people who might be either Lupin or Hagrid. It might even be both of them:-(.

Whoever s I hope that the trio survives!

Ron or Hermoine , one of them has to. I think it is to much to ask that the trio make it out safely. I hate to see either one go, but I would bet that one does.

I think neville . After reading your article on him being the other chosen one, i am more convinced that he be one of them.

I think (i certainly hope not) Ron . I agree with Boosnake on that.
i also think Snape wont survive either.
And Voldemort surely too. He has such a phobia of .

hmm, well i'm guessing that malfoy, lupin, snape, percy, the new minister of magic, kingsley shacklebolt, and voldemort . I think voldemort be ed by either harry or neville, and if ed by harry, i believe that neville by saving harry from voldemort.

Ron is goig to . I've thought so ever since the chess scene in Chamber of secrets. If it happens, I probably cry.

I think Snape make the sacrifice that enables Harry to Voldemort. He has too many foils to surrvive in my opinion. We think he's evil, then something is revealed to redeem him. I believe this hold true in relation to ing Dumbledore. I've decided that Dumbledore really is and that it was on his own order that Snape did it to properly position himself to provide the final assistance Harry needs to finish Voldomort.

I'm torn between Hagrid and Lupin...they are the main two left that serve as the obligitory father figure that has to to satisfy J.K.'s need for tragidy.

Those are the once I'm fairly certain on. There is one more, but I can't find the support for it other than the fact that anytime Harry finds happiness, Voldomort somehow ruins it (direcly or indirectly). That being said, Ginny has a high probability of snuffing it. My theory is that Voldy or one of his goons (my guess is Belatrix) gets ahold of her to lure Harry in (nothing learned from Sirius' ).

I think that J.K. Rowling Hagrid or Lupin because of her need for Tragedy. Also i think only one member of trio live and i think that person be Hermione. Sadly I also think that Snape finally show his true colors and for his true purpose: saving Harry. I also think one of Harry's guides , possibly Regulus Black or Aberforth.

Well.. Severus is now in a position where he can ONLY convince Harry that he had a change of heart about Voldemort because of his love for Lilly Evans Potter. Not only do I think he saving Harry, but that his bed revelations finally convince the Chosen One and the aunce as well about his loyalties. Finally, we get to see what Dumbledore saw in Snape.

We are faced with several pronouncements here..1.Main characters are going to because JKR says that 'when you are dealing with pure evil' really bad things happen. Hence her statement that Major Characters are going to . I am staggered to think about the loss of one of the trio, especially as romance has begun to develop for them. This is a children's book (supposedly) after all... there have to be enough good guys left for something of a 'happy ending'.

Ginny Weasley, being the 7th child of a wizarding family, has significant additional power, but little training. She could perform spectacular feats and yet trying to follow Harry in his quest without his knowledge as love drives her to an heroic .

Someone who is not normally expected to do magic do so. (JKR about book 7) Is it Aunt Petunia? Is it Filch!? Or, more possibly, is it Neville? Neville has always been almost as tragic a figure as Harry. Those who have already suggested that a brave, and unexpectedly effective Neville Longbottom reach new heights only to be honored in more than in life are probably correct.

Voldemort means - 'Runs from '. Oddly, it is ONLY if Voldemort can make a speech from 'beyond the veil' that we can resolve his fear of and his realization that he has failed in his quest for Immortality. The US cover may indeed reflect Harry's luring Voldemort through the veil only to have Harry return somehow, but no one ing to save the Dark Lord. Isn't that enough to resolve this story and leave some of our favorites to live out a calm life without a 'scar'?

As sad as it may be I believe Harry Poteer may . He still has four horcruxes to collect, difficult for J.K. Rowling to fit into one book. He may not be able to Voldemort as he may still remain immortal. The initials R.A.B; do they stand for Sirius's brother? I cant remember if he is , only he was heavilly involved with Voldemort and they had a 'falling out'? Or could it be a new character?

i am very sorry to suggest this but i strongly feel that jk do away with ron and hermione. harry had many protectors the main ones were James, Lily, Ron, Hermoine, Sirius, Dumbledore. all are besides ron and hermy (and possibly Dumbledore). jk ron and hermione near the end of the book so that harry, blinded by rage attempt a one-on-one. i hope what i have written is utterly wrong.

Hagrid is the most loving adult Harry has still around - I am afraid he , protecting Harry, maybe along with his brother.
I am thinking Pettigrew needs to pay his to Harry and might end up sacrificing his life for him. Lupin, living as dangerously as he does, is also on the line.
The last two Marauders, Pettigrew and Lupin could actually be the two who .
Snape need to prove to Harry (and the readers) that he has been on the right side all along (redeemed at the time by his love for Lily Evans) and sacrificing his life by destroying a Horcrux or protecting Harry would be the way.
John Granger ("Unlocking Harry Potter") thinks that the Weasley twins a heroic but I don't think so - I sure hope not.

The individuals I think are:

1- Voldemort: Must happen
2- Ginny: Parallels between Voldemort and Harry are too many to ignore, and one such parallel is that neither know happiness with a significant other
3- Wormtail: He has a to pay to Harry
4- Grawp: His character has been developed beyond being a marginal personality. He for his borther
5- Slughorn: He atones for his role in the Horcrux by helping destroy them, and losing his life in the process
6- Dobby protecting Harry: Another love-based-magic that Voldemort knows not to counter
7- Percy would make amends for what he has done and in the process

I think that Slughorn and Percy are the two who where not going to initially, but then JKR changed her mind.

I believe the trio would survive.

I think Snape is the one getting the reprieve. There is no doubting Dumbledore, and Snape stands to play key role.

Lupin suffered too much to continue suffering. Sirius was special case, and I don't think that JKR would repeat the pattern of dooming the one who has suffered for long.

The clock is ticking, and we shall learn soon.
