A Question About the Seventh Harry Potter Book
Book Man From kosaran

So I've finally started to read the Deathly Hallows and before I get any further I need to know exactly who dies.

I've been reading it at work in my breaks, and I got a bit choked up when Hedwig left the mortal coil, but when I got to Dobby damn well teared up, and I had to finish my break early before I started full-out crying. (I now firmly believe that JK is just bringing characters back in the seventh book to kill them off. I really wasn't expecting that one. Which is why I think I got teary. Or it could be where I am in my 'cycle'.)

So, who else is going to die?? I need to be properly warned, so I can decide if I should just read the rest of the book in one big hit one day, or if it's safe to still read at work.

Okay. But I do this against my better judgement :) --- And this is the list of folk who *stays* dead.

Fred Weasley
Remus Lupin
Nymphadora Tonks
Colin Creevy
A bunch of others on both sides I can't come up with without the book in front of me - (for instance, I think Molly kills Bellatrix, etc.)

But those were the deaths that affected me, because these are the characters we got to know.

oh, and Voldemort (but that's a gimme)

Thank you. I know how hard it is to spoil someone, even when they ask to be. But, knowing about Tonks, Lupin and Fred helps me a lot. In other words, I'd best finish the book in the next three days, as I won't be able to read it in public.

Snape supposedly dies in the Shrieking Shack after being bitten by Nagini, but his body isn't among the dead after the final battle is over and done with, so one could make a case that he survived and crawled off to live the rest of his life in peaceful obscurity.

I like that idea.

Is it just me, or does book seven have a body count as high as a Stephen King novel?? 'Cause I gotta say it feels like it.

I finsihed the book last night, and I am going with that idea. In my mind, if Snape had died, he would have shown up with James, Lily and co when they were talking to Harry. After all Snape had done for Harry (and how Harry named one of his kids after him) it makes sense he would have been there for that.

Of course, that doesn't take into account JK. Rowling, but I"m ignoring that.

I think this is the whole list of the main ones (not counting various Death Eaters):

Ted Tonks
Peter Pettigrew
Fred Weasley
Remus Lupin
Nymphadora Tonks
Colin Creevey
Severus Snape

I think it may have been easier to ask who doesn't die. Although if Hagrid or Ron had passed away I would have had to throw away the book unfinished.

Thanks for the warnings.

I was admittedly heartbroken over Moody's departure - because if it wasn't bad enough having no happy endings for my two favourite pairings (Snape/Dumbledore and Snape/Filch) I had to lose my third (Moody/Shacklebolt) too.
