As far as I got it from the papers, it will be at least two positive main characters that will not survive, nothing said about bystanders or the evil ones.

All I heard was two major characters, but then it was the local news I heard it on, and they are not good when it come to out of state stories.

Has that been confirmed by Scolastic and/or Bloomsbury? As I've been hearing that rumer since Book 6 came out.


I read that on mugglenet and the kid that runs the site, Emerson Spartz, usually has accurate info. But no, I don't think that it has been confirmed by Scholastic.

I also watched that interview with Jo from the UK and she said that two major characters will die, but did not specify evil vs. good. She said that one character that she originally killed off has now been given a reprieve. As Grey pointed out earlier, she also said during this interview that these major characters have to die because she does not want someone down the road to write sequels.

Harries also die?
Took a moment.
I do expect a major killing off not just because of sequel prevention.
While I expect that evil will not triumph in the end here, the defeat will be costly or it will run against anything built up in the saga.

Evil wins all the time Qwerty. Live long enough and you'll find that it is true more often than naught. I like to see happy endings, there are so few of those in real life.

This is perhaps the best parody of the PoA Movie. And you can read it in 15 minutes. :o

question, what are the DRACO/HARRY SHIPPERS? or two ther characters 'shippers'? I would look it up, except it's probably slang for fans who want those to characters together, like in slasher fic.

She wrote a book with parodies, you can get it from Amazon UK. For some reason she hasn't been able to print it in the US :?
