    Not bad for a fiction writer - children's fiction at that. Did better than most physicists and engineers. :rolleyes:

    She has also probably motivated more children and adults to read than has anyone in history.

    People die. Fictional people should face that risk, it the stories are to be grasped by readers.

    Despite everything, I'd never ever ever ever forgive the author if Harry dies, he must survive, and make friends with lord voldemort and like Eve said, anything else would just be wrong.

    She can't make Harry Potter die...not unless there's a sequel where some magic brings him back to life. It would certainly be an unexpected ending, but she'd also be locking herself out from ever writing another book in the series again.

    I expect some authors think that's a good thing. (About their own creations, I mean)

    Obviously he'd be brought back to life, but that has been done TOO MANY TIMES. Let him defeat evil and retire, if she's run out of ideas. Don't kill him. :grumpy:

    They can't kill him! That would be horrible, but at the very least if it does happen he needs to defeat Voldemort before he dies haha. Does anyone know when the next book is supposed to come out?

    Harry Potter Dies!

    Is there a new film coming out, perchance?

    Or a new book?

    Or a new vibrating quidditch rod?

    :tongue: :wink: :biggrin:

    Ron Weasley dies, though. Along with Neville Longbottom.
