OT, kind of a spoiler for Pan's Labyrinth but related to the discussion....







If anyone wants to know what it feels like to watch a main kid character get kill off in a fantasy film, go see Pan's Labyrinth.

HP isn't really childrens books anymore, with GOF it's really turning into adult books (the same class SW novels are in). Of course kids read them anyway, Lucas killed off Obi-Wan, Yoda & the ever-so popular(kids & adults alike) Boba(not really but kids don't know that unless they read the bigger books) & Jango Fett, why shouldn't J.K. kill Harry. I agree with Jaye he would be the happiest he's ever been. I also think she shouldn't kill off Ron or Hermione. They should have a happy ending.

I'm glad Jaye is leading this discussion. :) It's what giving us a long discussion about HP.

Um...okay...if by your standards, Star Wars novels are "adult" reading, then I guess Harry Potter is, too.  And so are the Ramona Quimby books, Stuart Little, R.L. Stine's "Goosebumps" series, and Superfudge.

Color me convinced...especially considering that E.B. White killed of Charlotte in "Charlotte's Web."
I sorta meant dark-ish books, HP has become dark & all the new SW books are dark (Legacy, Yuuzhan Vong, etc...). Plus Chewbacca was squished by a frickin' planet, Charlotte died of old age.

Gah, it'd be as hacky as killing off Chewbacca to boost sales.  Typical these days.

Like Harry Potter needs a boost in sales! ::) If the books weren't selling and there would be a new series afterwards, then it could be a possible motive for killing him off, but that's nowhere near the reason!

Anyhow a nice lil article titled, Who will kill Harry Potter? can be read! I think they are in Harry's going to die camp as well!! And they acknoledge that he could be a Horcrux as well!

So the gamblers are getting in on the act, huh?  Nice to know that something for kids and the youthful like Harry Potter is now fodder for the degenerate gamblers of the UK.  Oh, and LJ, you really need to lay off the exclamation points.  Seriously.  It's just a step short of writing everything in caps.  ;D

I thought that for Voldemort to be fully destroyed, Harry had to die as well.

Yep, that's it.  In order for one to die the other has to as well.  Why?  I'm guessing he has part of Voldemor's soul in him (just like the diary did)...

**AHEM**

Unless this is further explained in THBP (which I am only a 1/4 through) The Prophecy says...Either must die at the hand of the other and neither can live while the other survives. 

Harry then asks Dumbledore:

"so does that mean that...that one of us has got to kill the other one...in the end?"

Dumbledore says:

"Yes"

So...again if there is something in Half Blood Prince that I'm forgetting, either Harry or Voldemort has to die and I don't think its going to be Harry.  Although...I have been known to make mistakes, from time to time

That would suck if Voldermort survives with no one to stop him.

Alright I just finished Half Blood Prince there is no mention of there being any other interpretation of the prophecy I wrote down above...

Harry or Voldemort will kill the other one...you really think she's going to have Voldemort kill Harry?

Here's my take

Harry kills Voldemort...then he kisses Ginny and then...the end

I do agree Snape will help Harry in the end, he had to kill Dumbledore because of the Unbrakeable Vow, Dumbledore was at the end of his rope anyway after his two run ins with the real and fake Horcrux

Here's what I think...

Voldemort will kill Harry.

Longbottom will kill Voldemort.

Then...

Draco will kill Longbottom.

Hermione will kill Draco.

Lucius will kill Hermione.

Snape will kill Lucius.

Ron will say "Bloody Hell".

The End.

Longbottom's gonna face Bellatrix and take her down for what she did to his parents.
Harry will defeat Voldemort and being a Horcrux, Snape will figure out how to rid a Horcrux from a person and somehow let Harry know (maybe Snape does this himself). Snape also might feel he owes Harry as he was in love with Lily and feels responsible for her and Harry's dads death.
Draco is probably dead, unless Harry saves him. He failed in his mission and being that Voldemort isn't kind to failure would probably kill him to send a message to the Malfoys... which could turn those Death Eaters to the good side.
