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: (Page 22)

Contrary to what most people are discussing, I believe Molly Weasley , probably trying to protect one of her children. And I think that Harry attempt to sacrifice himself, but not actually , because Wormtail take his place somehow. Harry find and destroy the horcruxes, leaving Voldemort with only his mortal self to do battle. Molly's love enter into it.

Taryn from Easton: i am glad to see that you agree that my theory is a good one.
i also think that your theory about Draco becoming teacher is a good one as i have already stated that their are a few similarities between him and snape.
however i do not believe, as so many others do, that Hagrid be ed, i have just got a feeling that he survive

About how old Dumbledore is: In the philosophers stone it says that Nicolas Flamel and Dumbledore were partners in alchemy so that means they discovered the stone together. We also found out that Nicolas Flamel was something like six hundred and sixty five, and that was because he was using the philosophers stone to survive, but if Nicolas Flamel was that age then thah means Dumbledore was around that age as well if he was Flamel's partner. But Dumbledore obviously wasn't using the philosophers stone to survive because as far as we know it was destroyed at the end of the philosphers stone which meant that Flamel d, so how did Dumbledore live that long without the stone?

Even though it breaks my heart to say this, im coming to realize that as much as we are all in the character Harry, i think he in the end. This is sad because for a children's book there should be a happy ending, but i dont believe so for Harry.

That would still leave one more important character; many people think that it would be assumed to off all the people from the Marauder's Map. Rowling ed James and Sirius, but now it has to be Lupin and/or Wormtail. Wormtail has a debet to Harry, so I wonder about this character in the 7th book. And Lupin, he's the closet adult friend and protector he has left. I can't choose between the two. But I'm sure one .

Who I think is Hagrid (like many others have said before me) because he is one of the only adults left that is special to Harry. The other person who is Harry because the night that Voldemort ed Harrys parents he left a horcrux in harry.

I believe that Harry and Voldemort both . my theory is this; in the book Harry potter and the half blood prince, harry is on his discovery to find the hrusafix to destroy the pieces of voldemort. well nobody can explain harry's scar or his powers. i belive that voldemort was trying to harry, but that he instilled a piece of his soul into harry explaining his powers, and his scar. i think harry have to , in order for voldemort to.

First, I want to clarify my earlier comment about the Harry Potter series being for children. I think everyone would agree that the books are not strictly for children; JKR has done an incredibly successful job of creating this story for ALL ages; that's the beauty of her writing. It is also true that she, along with the rest of the literary world, wants to see these books enjoyed for generations to come. That said, however she has chosen to end the series, there be many, many loose ends. But, then, life can be filled with many loose ends, can it not?

As she has stated in interviews, "We're dealing with pure evil here." With evil comes . It was this comment that got me to thinking about Draco in particular. I am one of the fans who believes in my heart that he finally witness the "pure evil" of Voldemort, most likely as that evil relates to the treatment of his parents. After all, there is still the love that exists there between father/mother/child. Perhaps Lucius and/or Narcissa be put in a position by Voldemort of choosing between their life or the life of their son. Draco witnesses one or both of his parents being tortured or ed by Voldemort; he is horrified. This be Draco's turning point.

I, too, see Draco coming back to teach at Hogwarts. Maybe he "fancy" the Defense Against the Dark Arts position but be the least likely to be assigned to it. Hmmmm, sound like anyone else we know?

Carl from Birmingham: Your question as to whether Voldemort comes back to Hogwarts as a resident ghost is quite intriguing. I can certainly see him wreaking WAY more havoc than Peeves! Good grief!

Maybe Potter be cursed to .
Like, live through the battle, but come out with a ly curse?

Taryn - That's right, no one would expect Draco to come back to teach, which makes him a prime candidate! He has many parallels with Severus, perhaps this is yet another. Perhaps Draco teach at Hogwarts for protection and/or spying purposes in preparation for the next time the "Dark powers" attempt to rise.

Christine and others - Don't forget that Harry does not have to Voldemort in order to defeat him. You are setting too much store by the prophesy, and there are other ways to destroy a man. Maybe he be ed by another, maybe he won't be ed at all, but made to live on without his powers. He does not have to .

Regarding "spinoff" Harry Potters - If we do see any, Jo have to have sold the rights, or given special permission. Otherwise, it's a copyright infringement. Copyrights, unless I am mistaken, last for fifty years and can be renewed by her or her family, making it pretty much illegal for anyone to use her story, her characters, or her world, at least blatantly, unless she says it's OK. This is why you don't see Lord of the Rings sequels/prequels; the Tolkein family has those rights and don't officially allow those stories to be continued by anyone else. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, though.

This is really a war between Dumbledore and Voldemort, it has been since way before Harry was born, and the fact that Harry has been caught up in the middle was only because, like Dumbledore himself told Harry, Voldemort made it so when he chose him because of the prophecy he only got knowledge of halfway, not necesarily because Harry is a great wizard that could Voldemort on his own. So far, he has shown no great powers, only normal powers for a wizard, and a lot of the things he has been able to perform, have been because he has gotten a lot of help from others. It is like he is the weapon that Voldemort chose for his battle agains Dumbledore, so he (Dumbledore) has to do everything he can to get him ready so that he can actually Voldemort in the end. If we look at it from a "realistic" point of view, Harry still does not posess the knowledge, the power or the ability to be able to Voldemort, that is why I don't think Dumbledore is , because Harry still needs a lot of help to achieve this. I don't think Harry in book 7 because if he does, then what was the purpose of the series? It would be kind of dumb, and all of us fans would feel like we've really been wasting our time during all these years of reading and re-reading the books and watching the movies several times until we get to the last one when we'll see our hero finally defeating the enemy. We would all be very dissapointed. Or not?

I think that Ginny Snape, but after she s Snape she be ed. Also Ron or Hermione be ed, and possibly hagrid. Harry Voldemort but only with the help of Draco.

Remember back in PoA how Harry saved Wormtail? Dumbledore said that when you do that, it creates a bond between you and the other person. Well Wormtail still hasn't done anything to help Harry yet. In fact he has made things harder for him. So my theroy is that Wormtail betray Voldemort in the final battle and that Voldmore and Haryy survives. As for the other person, I don't know but I hope that it isn't any of the trio or Ginny.
