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 35)

A book can be read by children and include lots of s. For instance, "And Then There Were None" by Agatha Christie shows ten persons one after the other. It's still considered as a book teenagers can easily read. There could be several major s in DH.

But for Harry, we have to consider that:
- he has been a child or a teenager all along the series;
- Jo's way of writing drives the reader (especially the young reader) to identify with Harry.

For those reasons, Harry's would be overwhelming for lots of young people and I don't think Jo would go this way.

What it, what if. It would appear that many out there agree when they say that Snape is as evil as he appears. What if he and Dumbledore did plan some sort of scam to do the "unthinkable" if the eaters did, by some chance, invade Hogwarts. Dumbledore ed by Snipe as a last ditch plan attempt for Snape to infiltrate Voldemorts group. Yes, Snape is a double agent but an agent for the Order of the Phoenix. And what if the two that are Snape and of course Voldemort. Snape ing protecting Harry who of course thinks he's on the Dark Lords side. How Ironic.

And I still think Dumbledore come back from the ...he did have a phoenix friend, Fawkes, remember? Raising from his ashes would be a rather Dumbledore thing to do.

I think that voldemort s. Dumbledore said that the last horcrux was left in voldemort himself. I think that harry or whoever destroys the last horcrux voldemort just . kinda like Sauron in the Lord of the Rings.

Yes, I think Voldemort may not , at least not straight away.
I think he have his magical abilities stripped from him by Harry and then he live out his days as a muggle and of old age of disease.
He then realise what Dumbledore meant by things worse than .
In some cases, life can be much worse than .

I have been reading every single page of these comments. I have been a huge harry potter fan since the beginning of the series. I am 20 years old now, and I still can't wait till DH comes out!
I really hope I'm wrong, but I do believe that Harry is going to .. I don't know exactly why, It's just a feeling I have.
I also think that wormtail, ginny and dobby . Wormtail because he still has a dept to pay to Harry, Ginny because of her love for Harry and vice versa, Dobby because he serve Harry Potter until the end.

It's really great reading all of the comments, makes the waiting a little easier!

ok my guesses for s, of which i think we can expect quite a few.

voldemort. obviously.
lestrange. via a vengeful neville.
greyback. slain by lupin
lucius malfoy. somehow.
Snape. After proving his allegiance to the order with some last ditch heroics , i think, perish before he can be thanked.
hagrid. the big man'll go taking a few with him.

And finally, i think one of the trio has to bite the dust.. it could be any one of them but i can't say who.

i'm probably gonna cry

"Voldemort's name means "Runs From "."

Actually, if we're looking at the French translation:
to "voler" is "to fly"
de is "from"
"mort" is the past tense of "mourir", which is "to ".

"Voldemort", therefore, would mean to "Fly From ". Perhaps slightly more significant?

I think Harry in the 7th book!
I do not hope so but I can't help it...I think he is a horcrux.
I also think Percy is going to , protecting his family. Maybe Moody, Remus, Tonks, McGonagall or Hagrid too.
I hope Voldemort is going to of course!

Ron or Hermione

*most likely

I have been rereading OoTP. In the battle at the ministry of magic, Voldemort possesses Harry in order to get Dumbledore to Harry. Why would he do this if Harry was a horcrux as theorized on this site? Also, when Harry's heart filled with emotion, Voldemort couldn't stand being in Harry's body. Obviously, Voldemort wouldn't have his horcrux destroyed, and never would a piece of his soul survive in someone as good as Harry.

Unfortunately, I do believe that Harry . I think JK not off many, if any, OoTP members. As Lupin said before, they're ready for Voldemort this time. They were all younger before, all foolish. They didn't know how to take care of themselves. The Order we're seeing now is powerful, it incites fear amongst the enemy because they know they're equally matched. Voldemort may have numbers and some powerful wizards at his disposal, but all the members in the Order are renowned, there's something about each member that is powerful, something that gives them the edge. The only reason any Order member is because they'll lay down their lives to open doors for Harry.

Chances of Ginny are good, it's the easiest way for JK to dispose of a character that we've all just become attached to, she has a tendency (other than Dumbledore) to off people we're just getting attached to. People we've just started to like.

Now, back to Harry . So, we all know that Harry is going to hunt down the Horcruxes. His goal is, obviously, to Voldy. But! There's an unaccounted for Horcrux, I believe that it's Harry. Dumbledore said that he didn't believe that Voldemort could feel when his Horcruxes were destroyed, does that mean he can't feel when they're created? I believe that when he attacked Harry, he attached part of his soul to him. Hence: all the traits Harry has in common with Voldemort. So, if Harry is a Horcrux, he'll have to to finish Voldemort off.
