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.

Hmmm... I think Lupin fight Greyback as well, maybe saving Harry (thinking about Sirius fighting Lupin in book 3.) Lupin wil have wolfsbane, possibly given to him by Snape, and save Harry. Greyback take Lupin out (not him) which lead to Pettigrew ing Greyback with his silver hand (why silver? That's no accident.) However, Greyback inflict critical wounds on Pettigrew, and Pettigrew , saving Harry. (life ). Lupin be the only remaining Marauder.

I also think Hagrid . He is the father figure, and he would saving Harry. All this "who can Hagrid on account of his giant blood" is meaningless. Voldermort can him. Ministry officials can't stun him, but I think Voldermort could him with the Avada Kedarva.

I think the that made her cry is Ginny. I think that would be very hard for JKR to right, and very hard for most to read. She is powerful and has special abilities, I think Slughorn said that, but I think she'll bite off more than she can chew trying to aid Harry. Maybe Voldermort himself her. But I think she'll be the Weasley who s.

Bellatrix . I hope Neville does her in, and ends up as Herbology teacher, as someone said. Neville won't I don't think. I think Neville might try and take on Voldermort as well, and end up very injured, but not . Harry get there in time and Voldermort.

As for Horcruxes:
1) Mirror of Erised (Ravenclaw)
2) Hufflepuff's cup
3) Slytherin's locket
4) Nagini
5) Riddle's diary
6) Gaunt's ring
7) Voldermort himself

And maybe Harry s Voldermort with Gryffindor's sword (that Voldermort couldn't find to turn into a horcrux.)

I think Snape's good, but he's too cool to . Maybe he'll Nagini, but he won't . Maybe Nagini poisons him, but he's got an antidote. He is a potion master over all, maybe someone slips him a beazor!

I like theories that Voldermort s Lucius, he failed to get the prophecy, and his son failed to Dumbledore. Maybe he wants Lucius to Draco, maybe just to teach Draco, but it turns Draco "good." I think Draco is a good kid gone wrong. He gives it all the chat, but at the end of the day, he couldn't Dumbledore. He and Harry won't like each other, but they could co-exist.

I can also see Harry walking through the veil. Possibly in the epilogue. I haven't seen, but apparently there is some spoiler picture going round, and I think it could be Harry standing by/walking thru the veil. His destiny was to Voldermort, and that was his great adventure. is the next one, and it re-unites him with his parents, Sirius, Hagrid, Dumbledore and (the happy ending) Ginny. I like the "Harry starts a second life with out a scar." Or something written a bit better as the last line. That leaves her open to more books when she loses all her money, but I hope she doesn't!

I think Hagrid and Lucius may be the unplanned s, but I don't know, nor do I think it matters. I doubt all this is right, I'm not sure if any of it's right, but they're what I think might happen, and I think the ending would be a touch of class.

Well, I would hate for Ginny to as she is one of my favorite characters. But I think that one of the trio have to and sadly that probably be Ron. Lupin and Voldemort definitely and a bunch of eaters. But remember how love is Voldemorts weakness? The locked room in the Dept. of Mysteries Dumbledore says is filled with love. Maybe Harry open that door to victory?

Just a correction to the post indicating Harry and Voldemort's wands are both made of Yew. Harry's wand is 11 inches and made of Holly with a phoenix feather core (Fawkes).

I know JK said 2 people she didn't intend to be ed, but I think there be a few more than predictions on all, however I do believe Snape end up near the end...after he confesses the reason Dumbledore always had trust in him. Maybe wishful thinking that the trio remain alive, but they just have to, they have always been togther and remain so. I would just really love to know the answer to why Dumbledore trusted Snape so much. We shall soon know.

here is what I think happen

Ron and Hermoinie are NOT going to they are going to get married at the Burrow only a year after Bill because in fighting Voldemort and seeing people over all 7 years they were at Hogwarts, they learn that life is to short and you need to live it fast. They have 7 children and because Hermionie is not a pure blood, they be able to have 3 wonderfull girls which make Molly and Arthur VERY HAPPY!

Because the prophecy says that "one ust at the hands of another," Harry Voldemort, Get the girl (Ginny) and get married when Ginny and Harry (who goes back to school to finish his las year) finish their schooling. They got married young because Harry is going to become an aroror (how do you spell it?) and they dont know when he might fighting. Ginny become one to and they fight side by side. they live in Grimuald place and kreacher gladly serve them because the rest of his "rightfull owners" (e.g. bellatrix, The malfoys, etc.) all d either at the hands of Voldemort or the Order. Maybe even the DA. THey Have 5 beautiful,smart, and powerful Children. 3 are boys and 2 girls. Their father is the most powerful wizard in the world and he opens a school with ginny.

Neville become a teacher at Hogwarts After defeting Belatrix and Avenging his parents. WHen Bellatrix s through Neville's reveng, his parents no longer be insane. He realize that he does not like fighting he just wanted revenge and that is why he becomes a teacher.

Lupin and Tonks get married and they live right next to a potions master (not snape) who creates perfectly flawless Wolfsbane. They have 4 beautiful children who take after their mother in their love for colored hair and take after their father in a wanting of rawer meat.

Snape, after telling Harry why he ed Dumbledore (because Dumbledore told him to after he told dumbledore about Malfoy's job to do the ) be forgiven and then sacrifice himself along with Pettigrew to save harry.

Draco, like Sirius' brother and karcoff, because he tried to avoid the eaters. His dad s in a fight against the order and his mother s of a eart attack due to shock of both their s.

Everybody exept Voldemort and the eaters live happily ever after.

I think that Voldemort ; Jo can't leave the world in his fear!
Harry discover what is under a dementor's hood.
Maybe (in the cover art for the american edition) Voldemort is pushing away the rope for the boat in which Harry and Dumbledore had rowed to find Slytherin's locket and maybe harry is trying to get hold of it....

I don't think Voldy be ed by a gun shot wound or being in a noose. I mean he is a wizard after all. Surely he can just say an incantation and heal a wound or cut a rope. I think there's something more and I think it has to do with something in the department of mysteries.

Kelly- I know that Voldy was after the Potters for Harry after he heard the prophecy. Maybe I'm mistaken though wasn't he trying to get them on his side before that though? That's how they defied him three times right? That happened before the prophcey was made. All I'm saying is maybe Lily was a seer. I could be way off.

Well, maybe, maybe. I do remember when HP saw the genealogy of the Black family on the wall in OotP. He was shocked to see that Sirius was related to the Malfoys. And it was mentioned about the inbreeding. So there, I guess, can be a slight mingling--but it has to be like cousins many times removed.

You also mention the parselmouth trait. It's true, but it seemed in HBP that Dumbledore could understand it as well. And not to mention that Dumbledore understood mermish, but does that make him a relative of the merpeople? Maybe parselmouth can be a learned language, but other wizards avoid it because of its past context.


You are such a cowboy, but your idea has merit. I think it can occur like you mentioned. Voldemort has underestimated HP, and Snape is going to be there to keep everyone going in that direction. HP Voldemort with sort of the exact way you described Indy did it. Voldemort never see it coming because he think he is indestructible.

I Think That Harry Lives

Posted by Daniiyewl from Dalbeattie UK Scotland on July 19, 2007 10:27 AM

The two faced each other. Voldemort's eyes flashed red as a malevolent smirk spread across his face. Blood trickled down Harry's cheek from the open wound above his eye.

"Is this how you imagined , Harry?"

Harry stared back defiantly. His scar no longer burned. He had waited seven years for this moment, and would not ruin it by playing along.

"Do you think you can me? Know that with your , I create a new horcrux. And then I shall your friends, and create even more. The soul of Lord Voldemort be in every unturned pebble in Diagon Alley."

Harry's wand remained steady in his hand. His mouth set in a thin line.


"Avada Kedavra!"

Voldemort use Ron and Hermione's love to entrap Harry, but Harry's incalculable love for them both give him strength to protect them and take down Valdemort. Expect Neville's love for his Mum and Dad to help Harry near the end, along with Hagrid's love for Harry, Ron, and Hermione. The question is whether Neville and Hagrid survive. Harry .

I still contend that Dumbledore realized he'd been made a horcrux. It's not so much that Voldemort feared him - he simply didn't want him . During a trip into the pensive, harry watched as Tom came back to the Dumbledore's office to request a job. At the end of the exchange he wants to warn Dumbledore because he felt Tom reached for his wand. That has to be a clue of some sort. Then in GOF when harry is describing how Voldemort came back to life, he detected a gleam in Dumbledore's eye. And lastly, the means by which Dumbledore was able to find passage to the black lake - it was as though he was tuning into Voldemort's state of mind to harness the knowledge of how to get past the obstacles. On some other site, it was theorized that Harry's scar was the final horcrux and that somehow Peter Petigrew would provide Harry with the knowledge of how to extract the horcrux without destroying the object (the notion that two are not mutually exclusive). Then perhaps Voldemort ordered Malfoy to Dumbledore but in a way that would leave the horcrux in tact. Dumbledore realizing this asks Snape to finish the job in its entireity so as to completely destroy the horcrux within him. I'm reaching on this last part about extractions but I do think the gleam and Voldemort never wanting to fight him be something that comes up tomorrow night.

Michael from Pasadena - nice post.

Yes, I agree that how Voldemort s not be via a ing curse as that would mean condoning , not a JKR thing for children to do.

There was passing mention of the room that remains permanently locked in the Department of Mysteries - an unnamed room that we believe contains 'love' in some shape or form (perhaps 'someone' is hidden there? Remember Dumbledore's tower top words to Draco?).

This room and its contents could Voldemort more effectively than anything else. Harry would have to drive/tempt Voldemort down there and V would without Harry having to do something as evil as another.
