Yeah, so what do you think about the series? Are you satisfied with its ending?
If you ask me, I am not. I am not satisfied in a sense that many had to die. Yeah, it's needed in a story but I find that killing a lot of important or well-known characters like Lupin, Fred? , Mad-eye and the list could go on, are the best approach to end the story. I mean, Mad-eye? Seriously? I could accept it if Prof. Trelawney died though ( I just don't like her, sorry) since she didn't contribute much in the story aside from being the one that made the prophecy about Harry and Voldemort. But I like how Snape turns into a real bad a$$ to something more like an angel. The part where I was reading (can't remember the chapter title) his story (I mean, he's past), I was very touched especially that he really did love Harry. And that after all this pretentious-hatred towards our teenage protagonist, he really did care for him.

Anyway, what do you guys think?

The ending did the series justice, overall. I agree, so many people didn't need to die. However, ending the series would be the right point to do it, to add to the issues Harry had to deal with. Without the deaths, would Harry really have decided to go to Voldemort? I'm not so sure.

However, I am not pleased with the epilogue (I think that's the right term). I mean, what happens to Harry? Ron? Hermione? Ginny? It doesn't tell us enough, if you ask me. We got nipped. What job does Harry/Ron/Ginny/Hermione have? There were too many unanswered questions. A few are expected/wanted. The amount the J.K. Rowling left us? Too much so.

Then of course, there's the announcement that Dumbledore was actually gay. I saw that as digression for Rowling. The series was soo good and she kind of ruined it with that. It kind of detracted from the ending of the series, like she just wanted more publicity and more talk about her/her series.

yeah, that's the point of killing them, though, why Fred? I mean, I like him. He and George were awesome. Sad

I could not agree more. The only thing that Rowling left us was how Harry and Ginny, Hermione and Ron and etc. ended up together. I mean, come on. Did Harry become an Auror? What happened to Malfoy? Did he spend his few years in Azkaban for being a Death eater? *sigh* No

Yeah. I don't know why she said that. It would have been more understandable if she said that Dumbledore was just an old man that likes to spend his entire life alone than being gay. I mean, GAY? Why?

Totally agreed GG, Why kill F and G? they were the best, not in the movies tho.

I wish that she had given us more to go on with the future but she didn't.

I did not know about the other one though.

I think she was a bit of a quack after the end of the series. She kind of lost the fire at book 6 (Half-Blood Prince) IMO. She really messed up with some stuff.

I mean, alright. I can understand not giving us all the future stuff because she might want to release a book on it, but I doubt she will. She really should have gone more in-depth...but she didn't...*sigh*

I think it was a good idea, I was just a little annoyed that they killed off some of my favorite characters.

That's sort of how I felt. I didn't agree with killing certain people off, but some I think were needed. Like Fred? Totally unreasonable.

Exactly, it was such a pointless death. I mean, what purpose did it serve to the story? NONE!

I think they were sort of needed, but not really. They left Teddy to Harry, so it was sort of important...

Fixed. The Poll is back up.

Anyways, do you guys think that there were any characters who deserved to die?

Of course. Wait, this reminds me: Did Bellatrix Lestrange die? Sorry, I can't remember. Haven't read the series for almost a year now.

Yeah, Bellatrix got killed by Mrs. Weasley. Ginny nearly got hit by Bellatrix's Killing Curse and Harry was going to go help and Mrs. Weasley shoved him aside (without realizing it) and yelled "NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU BITCH!!" and they started dueling. The book says something like "both witches were dueling to kill" and that the ground around their feet soon became "cracked and hot" or something from the Duel. Then, and Harry foresees it a moment before it happens, Bella says something along the lines of who going to take care of the Weasley children when Molly is dead and she laughs and Mrs. Weasley's curse hits her (just like how Sirius died) and then Voldemort went nuts.

Honestly I stopped reading the book after Fred died =/...I decided too many people had died and it ruined the series for me...but from what I've heard the ending was...alright.

-from Rain: fixed typos and capitalization. Please capitalize the "I"'s...honestly....No
