Mr. Voldemort in the dining room with a wand...

I'm not one of those folks that pores over the Leaky Cauldron or mugglenet boards trying to piece together clues about who's going to die (and who would be mortified if anyone actually told them) but I do have my theory. And I should warn you that the two characters I said were most likely to get it in Serenity were the ones that got it, so take that for what it's worth.

I'm betting that Rubeus Hagrid and Neville Longbottom don't survive the Deathly Hallows. I'm guessing that Neville manages to off Bellatrixie (if any of the kids can muster up enough hate to utter an Unforgivable Curse, he can) and then goes down to He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named before Harry finally morts Voldie. As for Hagrid, every other father figure Harry has had has died so I'm guessing Hagrid will bite it too. But I'm still not convinced that we won't see Dumbledore again before we're done.

So there - not spoilers because I have absolutely no way of knowing any of this but I figured it was only fair to throw my predictions out there to be scoffed at or wondered over a few days from now.

We're debating on whether to go ahead and buy two copies or just one. We didn't preorder any but we've never had any trouble picking up a Potter within 24 hours of release, so hopefully that will hold true again. Until we're both through, this will be a Potter-free zone...

I'm on the Harry-lives side because I buy the hypothesis that the last Horcrux is Harry's scar.

And I think we'll see Dumbledore as well, though I have no idea how.

The character I'm most puzzled about is Snape. Ann thinks he's a good guy. I think not. Neither has a good argument.

Ann also thinks Luna Lovegood will become Neville's love interest. Possible, methinks. I also predict (along with the rest of the world) that Ron and Hermione will finally get together.

Snape is a hero - whether or not he's GOOD is another matter.

Harry = Horcrux Possibly a useful battle advantage, having a spare bit of soul at one's disposal- even if it isn't your own. Useful for throwing at Dementors, for example.

Ron/Hermione, definitely

One Weasley will most definitely be lost - mebbe two. (Red-Headed Sidekicks, BEWARE!)

I'm also guessing Hagrid doesn't make it out alive.

That's as far as I'm willing to predict!

I'm not a harry potter book fan, but I did read the last paragraph of the book when I was in B&N, I had to know the answer to the will Harry live question. I be bad.
