She's killed Sirius, she CAN'T KILL SNAPE! Him and Lupin are all I have left, and Dumbledore, though I think he will die. Just imagine the portrait of dumbledore being put up the the headmasters office to aid the next headmaster/headmistress of Hogwarts. Sad, but Comfort that he will be there to give advise.

Shame Sirius never had a portrait done....

And yes, Ron is getting all he wants. And the weasel comments are coming up waaaaay too often for my liking.

I don't know, that just seems too simple to me, for him to be the example of the benefits of turning from evil to good. I do agree that there has to be some sort of reconciliation, but I think it will come shortly before Snape's death, which will be far more noble than Sirius' was, in my mind.

The one person I don't think will die is Harry. unless there's some loophole in the prophecy, either him or Voldemort will snuff it, and I think it will be very disappointing and unsatisfying if Voldemort lives.

Dumbledore might die, but not until the 7th book, methinks. It will mark the end of an era.

I doubt the trio will remain intact, so I think Ron will die. Hermione I think is too strong a character.

There are too many Weasleys at the moment, so at least one of them will die. I've already said Ron - maybe Mrs. Weasley will die, or Arthur. Possibly Bill or Charlie will die in battle like Sirius. I think Ginny will survive as we need more strong female characters.

I don't see Snape dying or becoming close to Harry. They may be able to work together grudingly but they will neve be close

Sometimes simple is beauty...
Anyway at this moment I just can't cope with the idea the old Snap'ster will die... Right from the beginning (even before I knew AR would play Snape in the movies) he's one of my most favourite characters... I do agree with you that if he must die he will die a very noble dead.. then again to work things out with Harry will take much longer than the books will allow in time.. .

I think Dumbledore will die at the end of Book 6 it will signial new era for book 7, I think some of the OOTP will die maybe Moody and several others, I think Lupin and Snape and probably Hagrid will make it to book 7. As for the trio they will make it to 7, IMO. I think a weasley will die, right now I will bet on Mrs. Weasley. Man I am worried how many deaths we will have. I have a feeling now that the wizarding world knows that Voldemort is back that he won't hold back any punches plus he is very mad and I have a feeling will be seeking his revenge by going after the order. I also think Lucius will try to get some revenge too, he will either go after the Weasleys or Hermoine's parents not sure which yet.

There is a bit of the love thing in here so bear with. I think that Ron and Hermione will start going out in the next book, but in the end Ron will die. The loss felt by both Harry and Hermione will push them closer together....but that's no longer dealing with this thread. So yeah, I think Ron will die at the end of the next book(with the likely suspect being Draco Malfoy).

Ron will not be the only character to die though. I'm betting that Grawp will die saving Hagrid...not really sure why though. I also have a sinking suspicion that Tonks will bite the big one saving Harry(possibly while disguised as a student at Hogwarts). I know there will be others...the second war has begun.

JKR has said in interviews that Ron, Harry and Hermoine all make it to Book 7 it is then that all bets are off.

I think, that in book 6, that Uncle Vernon will die, and that that event will bring Harry & Petunia closer together....

Also, I think, I don't know why, that Lee Jordan - Gred & Forge's friend....will get it...

We shall wait (impatiently!) and see!

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good!

It seems to me that the most likely to die in book 6 will be one of the Weasley parents, probably Molly. Arthur already had his run-in with Voldemort/Voldemort's cronies in book 5, so it's Molly's turn and I really can't see her coming out of it alive - the foreshadowing with the Boggart was just too much. If she does snuff it, it'll be while saving one of her children, or Harry. Then again, that would be a bit obvious.

So I think my *real* opinion is that, as far as deaths are concerned, all bets are off.

However, I think Dumbledore is safe until the end, McGonagall is safe and will become the headmistress after Dumbledore, Neville will become even more heroic, and I think that in the 7th, Ron's going to bite it. If he DID die, the romantic pairings could be Harry and Hermione, and Neville and Ginny. Although it seems far more likely that Ron and Hermione are a sure thing - notice they reminded Harry of Ron's parents. :grouphug:

sorry about this! </rambling>

Reconciling doesn't necessarily mean becoming the best of friends or even becoming close in any way. It just means coming to some sort of mutual understanding, even if it's grudging.

A general death topic has already been started and is stuck to the top of this forum (for a shortcut, click here).

I'll merge this into the existing thread.


Lunch was six dollars and thirty-one cents at the Lamplighter Inn, that's on Highway Two near Lewis Fork.
That was a tuna fish sandwich on whole wheat, slice of cherry pie, and a cup of coffee.
Damn good food. Diane, if you ever get up this way that cherry pie is worth a stop.

Ok, Harry is not going to die. The reason for this being is that JKR isn't one for ultimate tragedy. She peppers her books with death and difficulty, but there is always some sense of closure in her books. It would be an ultimate tragedy if she killed off her main character. Nah, that's not how she writes.
About the book six and seven deaths...I am not the only one who was surprised by Sirius's death in book five. That's the thing with JKR. She likes to surprise us...that lawsuit says that. Therefore, whoever will die, I'm guessing is someone we don't expect. Except I don't think Harry will die, for the reason stated above. After that, ANYONE is fair game.

I think Book 6's biggest surprise will be the destruction of Harry's Aunt's home, the Dursley's. This is to expose Harry and remove his "home", or at least that is what Voldemort will think. This will leave harry exposed and vunerable to death in book 7, unless you consider Hogwarts could become his new home!

I think it's pretty likely that Dumbledore will die in this book, although it makes me feel like crying just thinking about it. It's been said many times that Harry's safe as long as Dumbledore's around, everything's okay as long as Dumbledore's here, etc. and I think this is foreshadowing that at some point Dumbledore won't be there to make everything okay. I think he would die in the sixth, not the seventh, because there should be another year after he dies to show how much Hogwarts, or basically the entire wizarding world, falls apart without him.

I was surprised that only one person died in OotP, since 5 died in GoF. I think that the next two books will have more than just one death though, especially now that Voldemort's back in power. I'm not sure who would die in addition to Dumbledore, but I doubt it would be another big character, as Dumbledore's death would be absolutely horrible.

I also think it would be awesome if Harry and Neville teamed up to kill Bellatrix Lestrange, since she tortured Neville's parents and killed Sirius.

I have a slight feeling that none of the top three will kick it. Except for possibly Harry. If Harry doesn't there isn't an ending in the world that we won't wonder about. Who can honestly say they want to hear about Harry getting married and having lots of little Harrys. It is too messy we would have questions, it is not likely that is how J.K. Rowling plans to finish the series.
Another curious little factor, from an interview, she said had finished the last chapter of the last book. Now she must link it all up! I wonder what some of us would do to get our hands on that chapter.
As for book 6 I think another member or two of the Order will drop. I hope Fudge will, the little :censored:.
I hope it is not Tonks though, she was very cool.

Die, Percy!

Seriously, let him apologize to his parents and then redeem him by having him give up his life to save...well... as few as one and as many as 5 of his siblings.

I think that a Weasley will die at some point. Maybe Percy or Mr. Weasley since they are in the ministry.

Remember what has been said about the previous reign of voldemort? Entire families would be killed. Wizzards/witches would be scared to come home and see the sign floating above their house, knowing what was inside. I think that since the last chapter in book 5 was titled "the second war" it must be just that: the start of the second war. After voldemort gets his followers in line, I think we can expect entire families of people (not necessarily main characters, but nonetheless) be killed by voldemort and his whores.

yay fer harry potter.

I think you are on to something I think Voldy is going to be very angry and will seek revenge. The death eaters will start killing again and leaving the mark, we might see several members of the OOTP go in book 6 and I also think most of the older members of the order will die passing the torch so to speak.
