Here are the quotes from JKR:

“The final chapter is hidden away, although it’s now changed very slightly. One character got a reprieve. But I have to say two die that I didn’t intend to die,” she said. “A price has to be paid. We are dealing with pure evil here. They don’t target extras do they? They go for the main characters. Well, I do.”

Oh and I summarize that her husband "gasped" when she told him ONE of the characters that is going to die.

So this is looking like we are not counting the Baddies.

ETA: And this is what is really scary: "two die that I didn’t intend to die" So that meant that there maybe more that she DID intend to kill off from the start!!!!!

*weeps big tears*

I am much and much afeared!

Here are my demands:

Harry must Live.
Ron must Live.
Hermione must Live.
Ginny must Live.
Fred and George must Live.
Luna must Live.
And I thought that we had already decided that Neville is going to be the Herbology professor Right? So he can't die either.

Everybody else I can stand to lose when the chips are down and the books are done.

I will be devastated if any of the trio dies, but I'd be willing to sacrifice anyone if she lets us keep Harry.

Not RON!!!

See, I look at your icon and I think about what would be left of the survivors if any of the trio dies. It just doesn't bare thinking about.
Jun. 26th, 2006 10:31 pm (UTC)
You know I agree 100% with your list.
But if she HAS to kill one of the blessed 8 well I would have to go for Hermione I am afraid.
I am NOT saying I want her to die, but from our list she is the one I canre the least about

Ohh I don't particularly want to lose Susan Longbottom Bones either
Jun. 26th, 2006 10:38 pm (UTC)
I've become attached to Susan too, but with family history *cries*
Jun. 26th, 2006 11:27 pm (UTC)
Yeah I know, that is what makes me all the more convinces that she will be safe
please please please please please

I refuse to believe it, and that is all I'm saying.

*hugs remus and dora*

*screams* I agree. The DoM 6 have to live! I almost wonder if she is going to kill Harry so there are no more books...Although Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had to bring Sherlock Holmes back to life due to public demand when he tried that.

I remember reading an interview a few years ago in which JK Rowling said the only way she would write another HP book after no. 7 is if in 10 years she really felt like his story needed to continue.
I have been clinging to that for 2 years, and I will continue to do so
*sticks her fingers in her ears*
Harry must live, Harry Must love, Harry must live, Harry must live
Jun. 26th, 2006 11:38 pm (UTC)
hmm did you mean to switch to Harry must love the second time? Because either way I totally agree with you
Jun. 26th, 2006 11:53 pm (UTC)
umm...no, but is does work wonderfully doesn't it? lol
-the queen of the typos
Jun. 27th, 2006 03:23 pm (UTC)
That does sound promising. I was not aware of that interview. Thanks!

*clings to that hope as well*

My 2 knuts:

Dead!Harry and Dead!Ginny are not an option. I think it might be Hagrid and (gulp, gasp!) Lupin. I love Remus, but I can see him throwing himself in front of a curse to save Lily and James' son...

Jun. 26th, 2006 11:22 pm (UTC)
La, la, la, la, la, la......
Jun. 26th, 2006 11:46 pm (UTC)
NO NO NO! I don't accept it! I don't want to! My eyes got all watery. If one of the trio or the twin's die I'll be weeping like a baby. And Neville! My poor Neville! I think I'm actually afraid to read this book. *sobs*
Jun. 26th, 2006 11:48 pm (UTC)
That article completely ruined my day. I have the feeling that none of the Marauders will make it through to the end so Lupin will be gone. As for the other, I hate to say it, but the Weasleys are an awfully large family...
Jun. 26th, 2006 11:52 pm (UTC)
Word on who MUST live. (Well... I don't really like Ginny, and I wouldn't mind if she died, but I don't want to think about the effect on Harry.) If any of the trio die, I think I will cry for a year. Srsly.

I am so damn scared to read Book 7.
Jun. 27th, 2006 12:11 am (UTC)
So . . . . 2 deaths that she didn't intend when she began? Hmmmm. I'm afraid it sounds like some serious tears are on the horizon.
I would cry intensely if Neville died.
Sounds suspiciously like one of the Trio will be dying, despite her original intentions for the big happily-ever-after. (**hiding now**)
Jun. 27th, 2006 12:43 am (UTC)
Oh noes. So that's exactly what she said -- two MORE characters will die. And here I thought only TWO major characters will die.

I agree with your demands, except that I hope Molly and Arthur won't die. :)
Jun. 27th, 2006 03:52 am (UTC)
What about the character that will get a reprieve? Obviously someone she intended to kill off originally, but has since changed her mind. I've heard (well, read) some fans speculating that because of the wording, this is a bad (or at least assumed-to-be-bad) character. I don't necessarily agree, but if that's true, I hope it's Snape that gets to live. Cause I always thought she'd kill him off before things were all said and done and I really like him. Oh, not in any sort of 'take me now, Sevvy' kind of way (though I wouldn't kick Alan Rickman out of my bed for eating crackers, or water biscuits/cream crackers/whatever) but there's just something intriguing about a character that has managed to survive this long as a double agent. And either Voldemort is extremely confident of Snape's loyalty (unlikely) or Snape is an extremely powerful/skilled Occlumens to be able to withstand Voldemort's Legilimency--and do so in a way that doesn't rouse any suspicions.

Okay--returning your LJ entry to you and backing away slowly.

Pro-Snape statements made in anti-Snape territory are best made in comfortable running shoes and a supportive sports bra! ;)

i'm such a hardass. i'm cool with *anyone* on your list kicking the bucket. in fact, if the trio *doesnt* get cut down to a twosome, i will be filled with dismay. it doesnt make any *sense* to have all of those on your live list stay breathing, story-wise. i think it pays more honor to the character and to the story that we haev all grown to love that the ending isnt diluted or diminished for the sake of happy endings. if harry potter is anything, it is cyclical. it began with death, it will end with death. if it doesnt, JKR will have been lying everytime she talks about it as an adult novel that happens to feature the lives of children.
Jun. 27th, 2006 05:29 am (UTC)
PS: dont get me wrong. i dont EVERYONE to die! and i'll probably cry a bit when ron kicks the bucket (oooh, i said it! noooes!)
Jun. 27th, 2006 05:56 am (UTC)
Lots to ponder now
"two die that I didn’t intend to die"

I'm going for Tonks and Lupin. It will be upsetting but I won't be as shocked as if it is any of the trio.
Other deaths, I will handle with only one box of tissues being destroyed - Charlie, Bill, Fleur, Percy, Hagrid, any of the professors at Hogwarts...Colin, the Giant Squid (he's seen death in many a fan-fic. Hedwig might get plucked....

The trio and Ginny will have to stay intact. If they don't you will hear me screaming NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Jun. 27th, 2006 10:07 am (UTC)
No!!!!!!! No!!!!!!!!

Not my darling Ronniekins!!!!!!!!!
I can't handle it, I will be inconsolable. Not Harry, Not Hermione, Not Luna, Ginny, Neville or the twins, and NOT Lupin and NOT Tonks!


Not Ronnie, plse plse plse plse plse!

Is it wrong to pray for fictional characters?? Even if it is, I'm now going to pray like I've never prayed before.
Jun. 27th, 2006 06:11 pm (UTC)
*is very afraid*

I still don't know what to say on this. The word "NOOOOOOOOOOOO" is the only thing I can think of.

I mean.... Nooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

See, I can't think of anything else.

Oh wait. I can. HARRY MUST LIVE, HARRY MUST LIVE, HARRY MUST LIVE, HARRY MUST... *voice fades as the lights dim*
Jun. 27th, 2006 11:09 pm (UTC)
