And then...

So... JKR has announced that two characters will die. (First she said three? But then said one got a reprieve...)

After reading entries from jem_endured_fit and heron_advocate, I've decided who I think will bite it and who I think got the reprieve.

Ron. I know, I know. You're all thinking I just want him to die to hurt Harry even more, because I love hurting the ones I love most, but that is not the case here. (Or is it?) I think Ron's going to die, because Harry, like any other high strung person, reacts violently when something traumatic happens to him. The closer he is a person when they're injured, the move violently he reacts. Harry said himself that the ones closest to him are in immediate danger. Who is closer then Ron is? I don't have any strategies for how he's going to die, but I think he's going to die nonetheless.

Fred or George. Because those twins have to be split up. How horrible would that be? It bothers me to even think about what the remaining twin would be like. They're entirely too close for her not to be tempted to ax one.

As for the reprieve... well, I'm totally biased as this character is my absolute favorite, but Harry. There is an up and down to this. The up is that if Harry lives, he'll prove that he was strong enough to meet evil head-on, suffer tremendous loses, and not crumble under pressure. On the other hand... it's bittersweet and dramatic to think that one person was born with to shoulder a huge burden and he never once faltered shouldering it, never doubted for a second that he could do it, and he died to save a world that had otherwise been cruel to him by taking his parents, forcing him to be an outcast, and then singling him out as their hero. (Yes, I love Harry!)



I'd love to hear what you guys think! ♥

I just don't know about the twins, she did say the deaths would be major characters.

I think Snape gets to live.

Voldie bites it.

And the other? It's either Ron or Ginny. I'd really love to believe Ginny will die--for numerous reasons. First of all? She smells of broom handles. Second. She's a character I that I just can't buy, especially after the last book. And finally? If she died trying to save Harry, it really would tie the story up in a neat little bow, wouldn't it? *Barfs*

Then again? I'm usually wrong with my guesses.


**PS*** Hi!!!! How are you?

I know. Sigh.

I hope Snape doesn't get to live! And yeah, I'm betting Voldemort bites it too, but... I don't know. Somewhere else I read that she said in book 7 all bets were off when it came to who was living and who was dying.

And, realistically, you don't make it through a war without a lot of casualities... yes, I like angsty and sad books. I do, I do!

Hahaha, it would be coldly ironic, wouldn't it? Harry = We have to break up because you're a slut because Voldemort will get you! Ginny = Ok! *dies anyway*

*giggles*

I just want Harry and Luna to survive. Draco, too, but I'm not as fond of him in canon as I am in fandom. :)

Eee! Heyyya! I'm fine, been out looking for a job! ♥ How are you?

I've had this horrible fear that Neville won't make it through the series since OotP came out. He and Harry have both had such miserable pasts, and JKR would be cruel enough to see that Harry gets a happy ending while Neville dies heroically. He's not a major character per se, but he's had a lot of face time in the series, so his death would have an impact.

Personally, I think he'll take out Bellatrix first, then die trying to save either Harry or Ginny. I definitely believe a Weasley will die. And either Snape or Draco will die...they won't both survive.

I think Lupin's the one who got the reprieve.

I doubt that she's going to kill the one person that could die as heroically or almost as heroically as Harry. I don't think she'd want to draw away from the attention she wants him to have, in that sense, because up until now she's made it really clear who she wants to have as the hero. But... I'm usually wrong. ;)

I think a Weasley, if not more, will die. And I'm totally in favor of Snape dying instead of Draco.

Lupin is her favorite and that is entirely unfair!

I think Draco was the one that got the reprieve. Or maybe Hagrid.

I think a Weasley. *sigh* If it's Ron, my heart will be broken into a million pieces. But I could see him sacrificing himself to save either Hermione or Harry or both.

I don't think Harry is going to die. She talks about it too much.

I don't think Snape.

Draco or Hagrid? Really? I never really considered them; my heart was too set on Harry. ;)

Ron... I'm not so sure. Hermione, though, I'm confident will bite it. There is no way that all three of them are going to survive.

Snape... well, I hope he dies. I absolutely loathe him. Always have. He needs to just... be pushed off a tall building or something.

Haha, and in this post, I voted for Ron! You can see how rapidly my opinion changes. ;)
