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.

If two main characters have to , I think they would be Neville and Lupin. Neville would saving Harry, and I don't really have a reason for Lupin. I just think he'll . Snape might also saving Harry, but I'm not really sure about him. And, of course, Voldy has to . This was a really hard choice to make, but this is my final decision.

No, no, Harry cannot be a horcrux, how could a horcrux be a living person?

i don't think that JKR could possibly off any of the 3 without facing extreme outrage, so i don't think its going to happen. here are my predictions.

voldemort- definitely should , it wouldn't be fair to write 7 books with harry potter in the title and then make him .
snape- probably, seeing as he needs to redeem himself.
hagrid- maybe, because most of harry's parent figures have been ed.
neville- i think he doing something heroic. his parents didn't , but they are permanently injured, and i think he end up like this.

i don't think it be anyone else, but maybe ginny or lupin.

Matthew from Arizona:

I just reread your post, and even though Dumbledore said Voldemort couldn't feel when his horcruxes where destroyed, I can't see how he wouldn't be aware when he actually ed someone and tore his remaining soul to create a horcrux. Sorry, as I've posted before and before, I can't see that any part of Voldemort could live in Harry. Magical transfer of power is one thing, but a piece of your soul, well, it would be more purposeful. Can you just imagine Voldemort accidentally putting his horcrux in Harry than when he reappears in GOF trying to put a piece in somewhere and realizing oops I already put that 6th piece somewhere else?

Anyway, the horcrux theory has been out there since book 6 came out. I can't see JKR doing something that obvious either.

I think Jk rowling has hinted that snape redeeming himself. they said Harry gets a new pet, maybe something happens to hedgwig, he's been attacked once already. I know hagrid be hard to but JK rowling has figures out someway to do it.

snape protecting harry. dumbledore is not . harry s voldy. harry sees himself only in mirror of erised.

i think that dumbledore come back because he didnt really get hit by the avada kedavra curse, he really got struck by lightning and thats why he got thrown off the tower, the chapter is called the ligtning struck tower...

I agree with sam from england. J.K rowling said that two major characters that she didnt expect to , so one of the trio . i be amazed if they all live.

True, it's unlikely. But, keep in mind that Voldemort has been knocked around alot since he came to power. He had a run, but we don't know for sure that he ever finished all 7. Also, there isn't a limit to how many he can make. 7 isn't the end. So, why wouldn't there be 8?

Posted by Matthew from Peoria, Arizona on July 10, 2007 10:18 PM

Harry Potter cannot be the final horcrux. Why would Voldemort turn Harry Potter into a horcrux if he went to the Potter's house with the intention of ing him. That would have been counter-productive because he would of created a horcrux to just destroy one. Also I don't think that Voldemort accidently made Harry into a horcrux, Slughorn had said something about it being a very advanced dark piece of magic, and from its description it does not sound like it would have been a simple spell that he said.

However it may be possible that somehow the curse binded the two of them and they are connected somehow, but I don't think that Harry is a horcrux.

People to Die:
Hagrid or Lupin (Fatherly figure tragedy)
A mess of Eaters/Minor Order of the Phoneix people
A Weasley
There probably be more but these are some of the definite I think.
