'Good things don't last forever' pretty much sums up my feelings on the future of Harry Potter. It's had a good run, but I think the author understands the importance of ending something on a good note. It's much preferred to ending up like one of the authors that have fans screaming at them to finish it already because of how ridiculously long a story has gone on. Too many authors tarnish prior works because they seemingly do not know how to let go. Harry should go out with a big bang just like Calvin and Hobbes did, instead of living on in monotony.

Problem is, no matter what she writes someone will have written it before.

I've got a fiver on Harry ending Book 7 as the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher at Hogwarts, since the revolving DADA post was a recurring theme of the other books.... Surely after any fight against Valdemort, he'd be qualified...

If he lives, maybe ... but honestly, after all the crap he's been through and how little actual help he's gotten from the Ministry, I think I'd tell them all to go to hell and move somewhere remote ... like the Bahamas.

I think its a great idea! After all, he was having a good time teaching the DA!

That's the theory I've followed all this time...it almost seems too obvious though. I wonder about him surviving as well, because I've read that apparently british authors have a reputation for sad endings? One thing I am more certain of is that Voldemort will die.

Odds are this kid is going to get the piss knocked out of him more than a couple of times in the final book alone. He'll likely lose friends, loved ones; he might even die or at the very least come insanely close to it. From a realistic standpoint, I can't fathom him wanting anything to do with much of this magic stuff after all of this. The sheer misery it's going to bring him ... if I were him, I'd leave. I'd just up and leave and tell them not to look for me. Maybe take my friends with me, but I wouldn't stick around England, not with the Ministry filled with as many worthless people as it is. Those people would never let him find peace.

Voldemort dies in the last book.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

 :o

Can't be. As a general rule, Ralph Fiennes cannot die.
