I answered based on what I want to happen, not what I think will actually happen. I think it's possible that Harry might die, but I really don't want him to. I do believe, though, that if he dies, Voldemort will go down first or with him. But I always want a happy ending, neatly tied up with a bow. I'm very predictable that way. I want Voldemort gone and Draco dead, but only after screaming like a little girl and humiliated by his dumbassery.

My answers were a mix. I think Ron is going to die. In the end, the best friend always dies. :p I want a happy ending too, I'm just not sure it's going to happen. And having said that, I still think that both Harry and Voldemort have to die, but I guess we'll see. :)

It amazes me anyone thinks the big three will die.

Never, never gonna happen, my friends.

Why not? I mean, I don't want any of the three to die, but I'm not sure you can avoid it. People overly important to Harry are dropping like flies.

After posting the poll, I did start to wonder if one or both of the Weasley parents might not make it through the book.

The overriding fact is that these are children's books. The formula's very clear. You can kill adults, but you can never kill children who are also major characters. Harry, Ron, and Hermione all live happily ever after.

Also, Rowling has gone to a lot of bother to integrate everyone into the Weasley family; she's not going to destroy that by having either Ron or Hermione killed (or Ginny, since Harry is linked with her at this point). But I agree that one of the Weasley parents could die -- even a brother or two, since they're minor.

Also, her concept of "death" is rather fluid as pertains to Dumbledore. See also: Ben Kenobi.

Not too shabby.

Heh. I will say there was a point I was sure Harry was going to die.

My biggest issue was that both Lupin & Tonks died, I thought it was unnecessary.

It was.

Really, a lot of the book was.

Her decision to stretch it to an entire year created huge problems in the narrative; literally half of her story was about Harry, Ron and Hermione camping in a tent, accomplishing nothing, and bickering about how they were accomplishing nothing.

I honestly don't think anyone's going to die, to be perfectly honest. Maybe Hedwig.
