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.

I believe that Harry is going to have to against Voldemort but is it possible for him to create a horcrux for himself is a debatable question. Also Wormtail and Lupin are going to have do . Snape is truly evil and not aide Harry. Just look at how scared Dumbledore was when he discovered the truth before his . Malfoy come through and play a large role against voldemort like dumbledore said. Lastly Hagrid must so that the story remains a tragedy in that Harry have no father figure and have no one to speak about memories of his parents etc. The story is a tragedy.

Carl from Birmingham: that is a good theory... one that i never thought to consider... what if being a ghost is what Dumbledore thinks is worst than . i mean they can't really do any magic, they don't eat, and people aren't really threatened by them.

Nick from The Wick: isn't it possile that the spell to make a horcrux is a non-verbal spell and it may have been on voldemorts mind since he was gonna make one from Harry's . i think it is possible that he used the AK on Harry but was also thinking about the horcrux he was about to make... and he accidentaly made Harry into one.

BUT i do think there is a way to get rid of the horcrux without ing Harry.

I think that when it is all said and done the trio live. Hagrid might . Snape be a good guy, and everyone know because he saving Harry. I think that neville may . Bellatix I think that she and neville each other. i was thinking that Sirius may be the one to get the reprieve... but he have to be a dog forever. if one of the Weasleys i hope it is Percy. As for the "ships" i'm gonna have to say Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione, Luna/Neville (if he lives).

Oh yeah and the one to return as a teacher... I don't think anyone would expect this one....DRACO! i think Voldemort may his parents as punishment for several reasons. his dad failed in retrieving the prophecy at the MOM, because his mom went to Snape after she was told to tell no-one,. and he failed to his task to Dumbledore (Snape had to do it). I think he is gonna turn and be on the good side because he has no-one left. then after all is said and done he be the unexpected person to return as a teacher.

I think harry ing voldemort because of the prophcey...

I think the 2 main charactors who are Ginny and Snape.

I think we're missing a point here. Has it not occurred to anyone that up till now, Harry is unable to perform the ing curse?

If he manages to destroy all of Voldemort's horcruxes (what spells would he use I wonder?), how is he going to Voldemort?

I believe Snape in attempting to Voldemort. After all, he is capable of doing the Avada Kedavra. Voldemort too - no one likes a bad or sad ending.

Not so sure about the other characters though.. we know soon!

Thoughts are:
Snape definately s to save Harry.. thus paying off an accumulated Life Debt to James. This is also a "main character" and justifies Dumbledore's faith in him.

Neville s. It may be that he is the prophecy boy and that he sacrifices him in order that Ron, Hermione and ultimately Harry can Voldemort. Only the trio is on the book cover, and it would still involve Harry as being a powerful influence in the demise of Voldemort. Not sure if he is "main character" enough for the .

Also, could one of the "main character" s be Voldemort. Hence only one other main character may be sacrificed.

Ginny gets ed by Voldy after Harry has only one more hocrux to destroy. Now he has nothing to live for. He then lure voldemort through the veil jump after him and by that defeat Voldy, because harry himself was the last hocrux.

I really don't understand why so many people think that JK is worried someone else is going to try to write HP books. First of all no one else, not even those on this site who are faithful readers know these characters like she does. And second that's like someone else picking up on any other "most beloved" series we've ever had. Harry Potter (genuine Harry Potter) can only be seen through the eyes of his creator. The book endings that people have written are proof to that. Although some of them are joking obviously others are people really thinking, but not one can come close. And anyone who is actually a "writter" at heart (not just after someone else's money) would not pick up and try to write their own continuation to someone else's story.

are going to (in my opinion)
harry - how can someone with such an adventure keep on living a normal life? in every book he suffers because of the loss of his parents, with now also dumbledore and sirius gone, he's devastated.
snape - he's playing a weird game (I think he's still on the 'good' side, voldemort probably him.
neville - he's someone who constantly wants to prove himself, he'll make a mistake (somethings also wrong with the prophecy)

At first, I was convinced Harry couldn't . It would defeat the purpose of the other books. In the early books, good has triumphed over evil.

However, after thinking more about it, could be a reward for Harry. As time passes, Harry has less and less to live for being alive. First his parents d, and then Sirius. Finally, Dumbledore, the only person who might care for Harry more than anyone else, d, too. Give JK another 700 pages, and we might see Ron, Hermione, Lupin, Hagrid, Ginny, etc. as well. By the end of it, most of Harry's friends be . Why not Harry and let him be with the people he loves?

Taryn from Easton: Voldemort is argueably the greatest wizard of all time and you are going to tell me he confused a ing curse and a horcrux spell? Even though he isn't, lets assume Harry is a horcrux. If he doesn't know that he is a horcrux, and Voldemort doesn't since he tried to him numerous times, and Dumbledore is , who is going to know that he is the last horcrux?
