Here is a major warning for those of you that haven’t finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:
There will be many spoilers included below, and I DO NOT suggest reading them unless you’d like to be pulling your hair out for the next week.
So, goodbye to all of you that haven’t read all of the books! Come back later and we shall discuss!
So, I was just minding my own business, I’m in my social studies class reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and this kid looks at me reading, and says, “Oh, I read those books. They’re good, but a lot of good characters die.”
And I’m like, “It’s a fantasy/drama book. I pretty much figured out that a lot of people were gonna die on my own.”
Then he asked me who my favorite character was, I said that my favorite characters were Fred and George Weasley.
He then cringed, and said, “Wait, which one do you like better?”
Back then, I really didn’t know the answer, so I just said Fred because I really love the name Fred in general.
He made a face at me and said, “Ooh, you’re gonna be so crushed by the time you finish the series.”
I knew that he meant that Fred was going to die, I just couldn’t believe that he told me.
About two weeks later, I saw that he was writing something down on a piece of paper. I took a little peek, and saw a bunch of Harry Potter characters listed on it. He was even conferring with another one of our classmates to see if he missed anyone.
Fred was on the list.
Then, in the middle of class, he put down his pencil, and handed the piece of paper to me.
I took the paper and read every single name on it, wondering what the list was for.
“What’s this for?” I remember asking. By then, I was on Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
He just smiled at me, and said, “It’s a list of everyone that dies in the last book.”
I just remember blinking at him.
“Are you serious?”
“Yep,” he grinned. “The list is pretty long, now that I’m looking at it.”
So here are a few words of advice: If you’re reading a book, or any popular book series with a bunch of movies attached to its name, just know that it’s too popular to not be spoiled at least a little bit.
I’m not telling you not to read good books, I’m just telling you to make sure that you don’t walk into a trap, in which you end up reading somewhere online, or hearing from someone the unfortunate fate of your favorite character.
And on that happy note, I have to say goodbye. I apologize for the huge time gap in between posts, I’ve been away all week. But I’m back now, so get ready! 😉
See you soon,
