Harry Potter & The Book 7 Deadpool
Rowling admits that two characters in Book 7 will die. Great. I now have to spend a year and 11 days (yep, my money's on 7/7/07) waiting for the fate of Ron. Boo.
She also says that
She would be willing to kill Harry in order to prevent future authors from writing sequels
She was in denial of her fame for the first three books, shocked when the press made slight reference to Potter
Jo mentioned she is indeed wealthy, but many stats are falsely reported
Jessica, her daughter, is often pestered at school for upcoming book titles, plot details, etc.
Jo has written half of another children's book in her spare time
Her boggart would be that of Mrs. Weasley's: her children dead
She made up the rules for quidditch in 30 minutes after a fight with her ex-boyfriend
So, who is it? Who dies?
My money is, as always on Charlie Weasley, Flitwick and Hagrid, with Hedwig also dying--but I don't think Hedwig counts as a 'person', seeing as she's an owl and all.
Although this interview makes it clear that there were two deaths she didn't plan, with one reprieve. So, swimming down to the deep end of the deadpool, I'm betting on:
Aberforth Dumbledore dying, McGonagall dying and Snape getting the reprieve.
I cannot, even in my imagination, conceive of death for Ron, Hermione, the Twins, Harry, Ginny, Neville, Luna, Remus or Tonks.
