  • Dobby's death was very sad. Fred's death was very shocking and horrible. The one that hit me the hardest was when Snape died. I didn't hit me until I read the chapter with his memory in it.
  • Strangely for me, It was Fred Weasley. In fact, since I finished it two days ago I can't stop thinking about it, and I literally cry each time I do. I suppose it's because the Weasley twins were such light hearted amazing brave and bright characters not to mention the empathy I feel (although I'm aware they don't truly exist) for all of the Weasleys, SPECIFICALLY George. I think it may also have to do with the fact that I lost a sibling of mine, once, and recently came very close to losing my eldest brother to gun shot wounds that he recieved as a consequence to nothing. I guess I just wanted to know if anyone else can't get his death off of their minds. I'm trying not to get to caught up in a book, its just really getting to me. Any help? And any answers will obviously be appreciated :]
  • I was devastated beyond comprehension when Sirius Black died. He was - and still is - my favourite character - any mention of his name in future books was like a stab to the heart. In Deathly Hallows, when Harry uses the Resurrection Stone to bring Sirius, James, Lily and Remus back, I was a complete and utter mess of snot and tears. I was very sad when Dobby died, likewise with Remus and Fred Weasley.
  • ***Spoiler****........................... First off Hedwig, that was sad enough, (poor faithful bird), then Mad Eye, (great guy, really liked him), but Dobby? Omg! That was sad. Then Fred...I couldn't go on...but I did, only to find out about poor Prof Lupin and Tonks,(just had a baby too!) "Where's her heart"? I asked! Well, I loved it, as ALL the Potter books and movies, I'm still a huge Potter fan! :)
  • They all did... Big breath. In the other books the only notable deaths were Cedric, Sirius, and Dumbledore. I think I can claim that all three were unexpected and devestating beyond words. Cedric was the first main death in the series, Sirius was a beloved character when he died and is still loved by all, and Dumbledore... in the words of someone else when asked "What is your favorite quote" she said: "Practically everything that came out of Dumbledore's mouth." From the 7th book alone though I wrote up this little descript and will add it here: Hedwig- HOW did she kill off Hedwig! I was like... not the owl... anything but the owl. Moody- The most expected death in the book in my opinion. Although still ridiculously sad. Especially not being able to properly bury him and the whole eye thing. Dobby - Mugglenet.com said out of all the main characters he was least likely to die. Them and I were both massively wrong. Burial of Dobby one of the more amazing scenes. Fred- I screamed. Like Hedwig I thought he was off-limits. At least he died with a smile on his face. Lupin and Tonks - Pre-deathly Hallows I thought it wouldn't be too bad if Lupin died because I mean... his best friends are either dead or the reason his friends died. All he's living for is the Order and Harry, and half the time he's miserable because of the whole once-a-month thing. After the first chapter my opinion changed dramatically of course. I had to stop reading for a minute after I read this. At least they died together and Harry is left as Godfather... Harry will be an amazing Godfather. Snape - Yes, he needs to be included. I thought in the very end his death was kind of pointless. Needed for the plot but if Voldie hadn't made the wand mistake Voldie wouldn't have killed him... but if he hadn't made the mistake he would have been dead for other reasons. The albus severus thing was beautiful. Colin Creevey - I'm not "sad" about but I think if I were to go back and read the previous books when he was an overtly excited first year I would be sad then, knowing his future. (Am I missing anyone?) The only part I actually cried was when Harry was walkign to what he thought was his death... He was so brave and he was talking to everyone and I just... lost it.
  • Wow! The death that upset me the most after finishing the book and reading the whole series was: Professor Snape! I think it was because I never really liked him through the whole series. Then to find out that he killed Dumbledore was not completely shocking. I semi doubted whos side he was truly on... but when hearing dumbledore pleading to Snape in the 6th book... It just didn't fit. I despised him very much through the 7th book... Especially in the very beginning when he was giving Voldemort the exact date and time when Harry was to depart from his Uncle and Aunts home. But what made me regret my feelings toward the awful Snape was the chapter called "The Princes Tale"... Once seeing that he was in love with Lily... Broke my heart! And throughout the several memories... finding out that he had been risking his life to save Lily's son was utterly depressing! And when he told Harry " Look... at... me!" Ripped my heart into pieces! At least he got to see Lily's eyes as he was dying... I feel awful not really trusting the character. Then in the 6th when Dumbledore died was dreadful! That was the 2nd worst death in my opinion... He was no longer able to help Harry track down Voldemorts souls... He was the great leader who I felt died at one of the most important times (although that also means Harry might not have stepped up to his duty)! Some of the things that made me terribly upset were the awful things people were writing about him... and "Kings Cross"! Where he was finally able to explain some of the things... Truly touching!! The 3rd worst was of course his precious Godfather! And I think most of you explained the way I felt towards him... I think some of my feeling have def. recovered from the death of Mr. Black. But for a while after reading the 5th book I was a wreck! Awful, awful, awful.... Then they go in this order... Dobby(he respected harry above all others), Lupin(harry never really apologized for blowing up at lupin... although lupin did deserve it), Fred(He was always soo funny and happy), Tonks, Hedwig!
  • The death that affected me by far was Dumbledore's. I have never felt such sadness before, give or take a few instances in real life. I stared in shock at the page when he died, unable to believe what had just happened. But during the burial I literally just broke down and cried throughout the entire chapter...
  • Sirius Black, He was one of my favorites and was killed off too soon.
  • Oh, I cant pick. Probably Dobby. Or maybe Hedwig. No, it was Lupin and Tonks. Mad Eye. I cant pick, but I can tell you that by the end of the final book I was sobbing like a child
  • For me the worst death was Fred's!! it was horrible I couldn't stop crying!! it was horrible! the second one was mad-eye's!!! I was so sad!! I thought he was gonna die in the battle or never die!
  • Dobby was really, really sad. So were Lupin and Tonks. But I had to put the book away for a little while when Voldy killed Snape. *sniffle*
  • Dumbledore (cool man), Hedwig, Dobby, Lupin and Tonks and George. I wished they hadn't happened :(
  • The worst death of all the series for me was that of Dumbledore. I really thought he would remain alive until the very end, and that he and Harry would be the ones that killed Voldemort together. Second was the one of Lupin and Tonks, they had just got married, and they had a baby, it´s just too sad.
  • i would have to say Fred and Hedwig. Hedwig because she was Harry's only companion thick and thin when he was at the Dursley's ... and Fred especially. Although i have to say there was some honor the way JK Rowling killed Fred. He died the way he lived, laughing. Yeah i totally fell apart emotionally during that time when harry could talk to his mother, father and sirius. The part where i had to actually just totally cry, was when Harry asked "Does it hurt to die?" i totally fell apart. Yeah like 1/2 of my favorite characters got killed off in the 7th Book.
  • For me, it's between Dumbledore and Severus. Dumbledore's definietly 'shocked' me the most. I literally had to stop for a moment, go back, and reread it in order to confirm that it'd actually happened. Even though there were plenty of people that predicted that he would die eventually, I was thoroughly convinced that he was practically immortal. The fact that Severus was the one to do it probably added to the full affect. Severus, on the other hand, was my favorite character, so of course his death hurt. Even though I'd managed to convince myself that nothing would happen to him, I believe that somewhere, deep down, I knew there was a possibility. The way in which his death occurred utterly appauled me, though. I was expecting him to go down fighting if anything, and yet he didn't have a snowball's chance. He was killed by Nagini, for goodness sake! He deserved far better.
  • id have to say lupin and tonks cause their son teddy would have to grow up without parents just like harry did but he has harry, ron and hermione for support!!! dobby- his burial was really well done...for a creature that is usually shunned to be praised higher than anything and in the way they did it was beautiful snape- wow can we say that we were expecting something nice from him but didnt expect THAT!!!! amazing work J.K!!! fred- imagine losing a twin!! -someone you have shared every second of your life with.
  • id have to say dumbledore, until i knew why. but lupin,tonks, and all the others did too.
  • Dobby and Hedwig because they were so unnecessary. Their deaths did not advance the story, I felt they were written just because J. K. Rowling wanted to shock. I mean of course one of the twins would die, that was pat and expected. She felt she had to kill of at least one Weasley and one of the twins was the easiest choice. Sad but expected. Tonks and Lupin had to die, or else why have them fall in love in the first place. This was a pat and common book set up. Sad, but expected. Snape had to die, it did not matter if he was doing what Dumbledore wanted or not, he was a bad guy. He only did good things for selfish reasons. If he truly cared about Harry's mother he would have cared about the son she left behind. Again, expected.
  • I'd have to say none of them, really. The 7th book seemed too rushed and contrived, and none of the deaths in it came as any surprise. If I absolutely had to choose something that surprised me, it would have to be Ron and Hermione ending up together. I really thought she'd end up with Harry...
  • I know this will deffinatelly sound wierd, but: Bellatrix's. She's been my favourite character ever since OOTP.
  • It was bad enough when Sirius Black died, but when Hedwig, Dobby, Remus, Dumbeldore died...omg, I don't think I've ever read a book series where sooo many beloved characters are killed. yet we all still love the books. J K Rowling is a genius!
  • The thing that upsets me the most about Dobby's death is that it probably won't be in the movie. It would be even worse though if it does get in the movie. The people who watch the movies but don't read the books don't have that connection with Dobby. He was cut out of the 4th movie when he didn't get Harry the gillyweed. (Did the movie have any of the SPEW stuff?) He didn't reveal the Room of Requirement and we missed all those scenes where he's just so confused at Winky's crying. Dobby just disappears and anyone who doesn't read the books will see him die and just ask "Was that the little guy from the second movie?" and never really know who Dobby was. Fred's death was awful as well. I thought that George's ear kind of gave the twins invulnerability. You know, like she already got them and, Jo'll leave them alone. I just hate to imagine George just standing there... with this kind of blank stare. Even the deaths of all those little characters hurt. Before I read book seven, I just finished reading in POA about Harry's stay in Diagon Alley and how Fortescue gave him those ice creams. And then, I read about Fortescue died. Harry remembers the ice creams and I'm just thinking, how can this guy die? We see him one time and... now he's gone.
  • Dobby!! Although he was totally wrong in the films in my head he was really cute and i was sobbing at his death. Poor Dobby!!!
  • I get tears in my eyes each and every time I read that part about Dobby rescuing Harry and friends at the cost of his life.Even his last words are Harry Potter.
  • For me, Cedric was just awful... it made me cry every time I read it and in the film... I think Fred's was a close 2nd.
  • Well, I expected Dumbledoor to die so was not too shocked at him, but I did not expect Mad Eye to die so early in book 7 so he hit me a bit bad, but the death of George (or was it Fred?) was the worst for me. Just thinking about being the alive twin makes me feel horrible.
  • I cried for 4 days when Sirius died...right after my dad died so i think that's why it hit me the hardest
  • lupin. i bawled for an hr, mainly bc he was my favorite character. it was so depressing bc now his child is just like harry without parents.
  • Fred Weasley...it seemed the most 'senseless' of all the deaths as he was so young.
  • lupin and tonks
  • Ithink I cried for most of book 7... It was horrible! When poor Hedwig died I dropped my book imediately and called my boyfriend, sobbing. X3 But yeah, each death was devistating in it's own right, because you love these people lol It's hard not to get attatched.
  • Hedwig's. I was also sad when others died, but I expected their deaths because they were engaging in risky activities and they knew it. Hedwig was an innocent animal, and her death was so unexpected.
  • Sirius, easily. He was one of my favourite characters, and he never had the chance to be fully happy again, after Azkaban and being cooped up and all that... Then, of course, Dumbledore... and Lupin and Tonks! I thought Tonks was awesome. :( And Fred, I thought he would be off limits. I also had the sad thought, after Lupin died, that now the whole group -- Sirius, Harry's dad, Lupin, and Pettigrew -- have all died. Well, I didn't care for Pettigrew much, but still...
  • Dobby's death was the saddest
  • Fred, or was it George
  • Sirius Black. I think it was the shock, I never saw it coming. And the fact that his name was never cleared before he died. He was such a tragic character. Of course all the other deaths upset me, but when Sirius died I was crying on and off for months!
  • I would have to say a tie between Dobby and Fred. Dobby was sad because he gave his life for Harry, right after saving him. Fred was sad just because Fred and George were two of my favorite characters, and how sad it was for George to lose his twin brother/business partner/best friend. I did like how Percy snapped out of his funk and went into a killing frenzy after he died though!
  • i thought lupin's and tonk's death was so sad they're finally both happy and then they had to die, i was a wreck after reading the 7th book, why does everyone close to harry have to die? :(
