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.

My prediction: Voldemort, Ron, Ginny, Hagrid, Snape, Lupin, Draco Malfoy, Percy and Fred to .

I like the idea of the "silver bullet" hand. But what if instead of ing Lupin. Wormtail s Greybeck to protect Lupin. I'm not saying that he is good in anyway. But Voldemort said that he only came back to him out of fear. And it would somehow bring somewhat of a circle to the four childhood friends. Not a redemption, because he's done too much. But it would just be interesting if he turned out to save Lupin. I still would like to see wormtail . But he is such a "rat" in so many ways, whoever said that he'd Lupin is probably right. I just think it'd be nice if he saved him instead.

I think Voldemort because there's no other way J.K. Rowling can end the story unless Harry also s. I also think Percy , leaving the Weasley family devastated because they hadn't been on speaking terms with him. I also think Peter Pettigrew saving Harry and Snape for the same reason. I also have a feeling that one of the trio is going to . I think it's likely to be Ron. I think Lupin also while he spies on the werewolves. I don't think Hagrid , becuase the spells that hit him just rebound of him, as we saw in the 5th book, and he's really strong. Grawp probably if he returns to the giants. I also think Draco because he try to run away from Voldemort.

As we enter the final 2 week countdown, more and more so-called experts are entering the Harry Potter live or debate. Reading articles from these sites, the majority of these authors, teachers, and critics agree that Harry in the end.

I wish I could disagree with knowledgeable assurances, but even though I don't want Harry to , I've always thought the moment after reading HBP that there was no other way to finish the story convincingly. Hermione hit it on the nail in OotP when she pointed out to Harry that he has a "hero, saving personality". He tragically to save others, but he definitely defeat Voldemort as well.

I am intrigued by someone's comment about the Mirror of Erised being able to give Harry something he needs. The post also reminds us that the mirror showed Harry getting the stone in his pocket. I wonder if it possible that Harry could "see" himself finding the horcruxes?

I think that I want to agree with those saying Voldemort's fear of turn him into a ghost. It simply makes sense. A little too much. But then he would still continue to exist, and I don't think Jo would allow that. Nick does also say that only a wizard can come back. He says it at a time when he knows Harry is asking about a wizard. Why did he not just simply say "Sirius won't come back" like he did a moment later? If Voldemort s, but not as a wizard, then he won't come back. This goes back to a theory that I've seen a few places and have adopted: that Voldemort's powers be taken from him before he s.

The first to , and very justly be Draco Malfoy. I believe he meet his end at the hands of Ron. I say this due largely to the feelings he has towards Hermione, and just the flat hatred that has been built over the entire series.

My second guess would be Arthur Weasley. Granted, he is not some powerful wizard, but his love for his family is not questioned. I believe that he saving his son's life from Lucius Malfoy(obviously wanting revenge).

Third and Fourth to be Voldemort's snake (drawing a blank on the name right now), followed by Snape. Harry have a chance at the snake, and underestimating its power it get the upper hand on him. I believe Snape intervene here and give his own life trying to save Harry's. I further believe that this point explain the full hatred of Harry's Father, and his love for his mother. Being that they were both potion experts, I think things be revealed from the times before Lilly and James, and perhaps Lilly and Severus.

Next on the hitlist be Narcissa. She of course be accompanied by her sister Beatrix. I believe that the fight open between Narcissa and Tonks. Tonks get the upper hand, and finish her off. Beatrix seeing her sister fall, go after tonks. Lupin of course interfere, and be severely wounded. Tonks of course turn and finish Beatrix off, along with that immediate pure bloodline. Whether Lupin s or not, I am not sure.

The seventh to follow be Neville. Not sure who him, but he always believed he was a poor wizard until he was around his friends. And he do anything for them, including itself (at least in of a battle, he knows his grandmother would be very proud of him).

As for Ron and Hermione, I do not believe either . It has been been so long suspended of them being together, that though Rowling loves a good twist, I think she leave that one alone with everything else.

As for the final showdown, I do believe that Harry Voldemort at first. One Horcrux which Harry never recovered return Voldemort to life, and He mortally wound Harry. Voldemort being as arrogant as he is not pay attention to the Phoenix that has no master, but has answered to Harry in the past, Fawkes. Fawkes enter and shed his tears on Harry, thus giving him the strength to reland the ing curse on Voldemort.

With that being the outcome, I think Harry and Ginny both agree to live outside the magic world. I think here is where Rowling throw in her greatest twist. She s the greatest enemy in a book, and someone makes the hero normal. Its a bit far fetched, but it would make all the readers happy that Harry is in fact not , but it also ends the story of Harry Potter, The boy who lived, and became a great Wizard.

I think that both Snape and Lupin to save Harry. Voldemort definitely because in the entire series, they're trying to destroy Voldemort.

It's going to be a disappointment if Harry s. He may when he tries to save somebody, possibly Ron and Hermione from . He trying to save others.

The story is so complicated. There's going to a lot of unexpected events in the last book that change the story.

After all, the release date of ly Hallows is so close, and we find out what happens in the final book in two weeks.

Lot of people thinking Draco turn against Voldemort.

I guess this would be likely to happen if Vol ed Lucius, probably if Lucius attempted to stop him punishing Draco. ie. the love thing (shown by both Lucius and Malfoy) that Vol wouldn't see comming.

Just thinking this further, Draco has been the constant bad among the students, all the way through our journey together, so any defection from him is likely to be very significant towards the final outcome.

I think too that perhaps because Voldemort has split his soul so many times, that once the horcruxes are destroyed, there wouldn't be enough left for his to survive as even a ghost.

Well it could be possible that harry use the Mirror of Erised again, but didn't Dumbledore say that the mirror doesn't give knowlege? For example the knowlege of the hiding place of the Hocruxes?
