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.

Pleased to see most of people still think Snape is good and for saving Harry. So do I. I think Sanpe is bearing great sadness deep inside his mind. by ing Dumbledore himself, and by the misunderstanding from the right side. He still needs to do what he has to do - to pretend being a eater. But in the end, he for saving Harry. Be ed by Voldemort.
The other character is going to in ly Hallows might be Wormtail,Peter Pettigrew. He betrayed James & Lily. He might still has some good inside him to pay his life to Harry in the end.
As to Hagrid, with giant skin & blood, I don't think he be ed in book 7. Hope Ginny, Ron, Hermoine survive. Harry needs them to keep going on after the biggest battle fighting with voldemort.

i think that Harry protecting someone in a noble attempt. (but to avenge his family and friends) Neville Voldemort and i'm not sure but snape s. i think because of the prophecy, the one with the power to vanquish the dark lord approaches...born to those who have thrice defied him (Harry and Neville), born as the seventh month s... and the dark lord mark him (Trick) as his equal, but he have power the dark lord knows not... and either must at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives... the one with the power to vanquish the dark lord be born as th seventh month s...end.

That means the one who shall the dark lord be born on the end of July with parents who have not listened to Voldemorts three warnings. Voldemort thinks Harry is the person who him because since he could not harry it had to be him only (neville and harry). Harry or Neville vs Voldemort, 1 person .

(since Neville and Harry were born at the same time and date they each have half the prophecy in them.)

i think neville does it because the prophecy says the one the dark lord knows not as a threat.

I doubt Harry is a Horcrux. It is a complex spell, it wouldn't have occurred on accident. But then again...
The ring had a crack in it, sort of similar to Harry's scar, no? But the diary had nothing of the sort, so maybe not.
One of the trio probably , it is too hopeful to assume they'll all escape safely. I think it could be Ron, as I can't see all of the Weasleys making it either. It would two birds with one stone for J.K.
Not all of the Order make it either in my opinion, but I see a possibility. Two members have presumably d already, so that might have been the last. But if Dumbledore is alive, another member probably , and if Sirius comes back as a dog or ghost than a member almost definitely . Lupin or Tonks seems likely to me, but that would throw off the whole marraige idea, so perhaps Snape is the most likely bet.

listen some of the theories go directly against Rowlings press confrences
#1 she said Dumbledore is and not be brought back though he appear in the next book, my guess is through the portrait in the head masters office
#2 she did say someone would have someone go up to teach but keep in mind potions is also an open position (even if Snape is good they'd never let him back in the castle)
#3 the prophecy said niether can live while the other survives. how do we know that they're refering to harry and voldemort the other could mean neville and nieter could mean both harry and voldemort .

I think that the people who say that Harrys scar is a horcrux have got it wrong, because it would contradict a lot of the things that made HP such a compelling story. Also people who say that neville is going to be the boy who lived should look at the prophecy again.

My List of People who Die are:
Mr. Weasley
Petunia-More to her than meets the eye
Just Wanted to Add.
The "gleam of triumph" in albus's eyes has got to mean something, or else why put it in.

And Also

When lily d to save harry, it gave harry a protection in his very blood, and dumbledore said that this was an ancient magic.Voldemort got this protection when he was reinstated into a body, when he used harry's blood

This might mean that if someone else s to save harry, then he have protection that the dark lord doesn't have, and this combined with the power the dark lord knows not, could be significant...

In GOF, Harry was able to fight the Imperius Curse. Also, in POA, his Patronus was said to only have been done by a really powerful wizard.

And really why would the prophecy be if Voldemort was just going to Harry. He ed so many people why bother mentioning it.

I think Harry has been through out the books showing that he become a very powerful wizard. Yes Love is important. But even more than that. If he has the power to resist one of the unforgivable curses why not as he grows stronger he is able to learn to resist all of the Unforgivable curses.

Harry is without a doubt a thorn in Voldemorts side, but Voldemort doesn't think of him as his equal or anything close to that yet. What if Harry ends up being the most powerful wizard of all time. He has the making of a really powerful wizard and it isn't all just luck.

I think Harry (maybe not in the books) at a ripe old age of natural causes. And after his defeat of Voldemort, no one else try to him. I don't think he'll use an unforgivable curse.

Ron s.
Lupin s.
Percy s.
Voldemort s.
Snape s.
Harry lives.

Snape�s loyalty? I found this to be the saddest part of the book. As many people guessed, all was not what it seemed with Dumbledore, and the two did indeed have a plan that would eventually result in Snape ing him. But, Snape was only in on things for personal gain, and when Voldemort learns of this, he is obviously furious with Snape. Snape tries to make up for things by luring Harry to him, but Harry manages to escape, and Voldemort s Snape before the final conflict.

I don�t know what all these rumours are about Voldemort kidnapping Ron, it�s a complete lie. Ron is ed by Bellatrix Lestrange in The Battle of Hogwarts, but Neville manages to finish off Bellatrix after Ron weakens her before his .

Harry is not a horcrux.

Voldemort is ed in the Department Of Mysteries. He baits Harry about his parents, Sirius, Dumbledore and Ron. which turns out to be the worst thing Voldemort could have done. As Voldemort steps out into the circular bit with many doors, Harry opens the locked door, and Voldemort is destroyed by the blinding light, which heals Harry, who seems close to (he does not ).

I think it is unlikely but I hope that Harry s and Voldemort lives. 2 Simple Reasons:

1: I'm way too sick of the good guys always winning and the bad guys always , even if there's a serieswhere the bad guys win in one book/movie in the end the good guys always triumph. I hate it! Way too predictable!

2: The message would be even though you cannot completly destroy evil doesn't mean you should join it. It's a battle that never ends but it's the right thing (Not to mention its way more interesting and you can make more books/movies)

One more thought.

I love the Weasley family so this is a bit of emotions. But so many think that Weasley's . And I have to agree that there seems to be too many for them all to make it out alive.

But if seven is the most powerful number, and if all seven children stood together, couldn't they maybe be too powerful to take down.

Not that, that necessarily protects Arthur and Molly, but the kids at least.

I believe that Snape saving Harry.
Hagrid and/or Lupin considering JK always s Harry's fatherly figures.
Hermione or Ron have to fall for eachother.
Ginny and Harry might get back together but possibly not because Harry is to busy saving save the world from pure evil...
The 2 way mirrors serve a HUGE purpose.

Harry and Voldemort might . Voldemort i am sure of it. but maybe harry ing Voldy because the spell is to powerful for him .

Even after I say that I believe that maybe harry won't ... maybe Snape saving harry from the Avada Kedavra curse sent by Voldy. Then Voldy and Harry are in complete shock from that Harry find courage and Voldy.... then ing Voldy.

I hope the Mirror of Erised comes back, and harry do something incredibly powerful with it.

Ok, so I say that Voldemort and Harry both in the end. Other people who be Ginny, Hagrid, Lupin, Greyback, Draco, Wormtail, Bellatrix. But Hermione and Ron survive and in the epilogue they have a son named Harry in his honor.

David (age 12) from Kitchener:

You are very mature in your thinking. And you are right in so many ways. Evil can not be completely destroyed. That is the ying & yang of the series. Dumbledore defeated the dark wizard Grindelwald about 50 years before. Even though he beat him, evil was obviously not totally destroyed. That may be the real lesson. As JKR said..."it's the choices we make." The choices define who they are. Although Snape is not a pleasant sort of person, ultimately he is good because he made the choice to defeat evil (even though it appears that he didn't by ing Dumbledore).
