John Irving and Stephen King just visited her the other day to talk this over with her. Seems they are not so happy that she will kill Harry... and mostly because she doesn't want to continue.

Well see what they told her. Maybe a horror ending... or a final end without a big bloody mess. Que sera, sera  ;)

I find that hard to beleive, and besides, who are they to tell her what she should and shouldn't write?

First of all, if everyone knows she's going to kill Harry, she's not going to.

Secondly, she wouldn't be continuing anyway; Book 7 was always meant to be the final one.

There would be a tremendous pressure from her publisher/ fans to make more books if she didn't kill him off. She could refuse, yeah. But the pressure would still be there, and be very annoying.

To resolve this problem, I have taken the liberty of writing book 8:
"On the way out of Hogwarts, a newly graduated wizard, Harry took a sigh of relief because he knew that Voldemort was defeated, with the aid of Professor Snape. He must not have noticed an angry Draco standing a good distance away from him. It wouldn't have mattered if he did see him, though, because Harry tripped on the stairs and died."

LOL!

There was a girl I had to work with for a play competition who was convinced that (Possible spoiler alert) Harry is a Horcrux, so therefore, he has to die and that would kill Voldemort. To me, it makes no sense, because the prophecy says that only Harry can kill Voldemort, so if he dies, then Voldemort will still be alive and can become the next Hitler person. But she was a total bitch. Everyone in highschool who wasn't retarded hated her, and she hated the retarded kids that tried to get with her. So don't lister to anything she says.
And with this post, I've opened yet another can of worms.

She said she doesn't want some hack picking up the story and ruining it after she goes off to trip the light fantastic. I hope she ends this series in the only decent way possible. Voldermont wins, everyone else dies.

Imagine the outrage. That would be worse than "ZOMG Snape Killz Dumbledore!!!"

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Funny story: I refused to watch the fourth movie last thanksgiving, so my parents went with me to see RENT while my sister and her friends went to see Goblet of Fire I watched the trailers idly, and when we get to the opening credits, I spot two familiar names, 1492 Productions and Chris Columbus. I nearly burst out laughing at the irony of forsaking one 1492 film for another.

I do not regret disturbing the people around me to this day.

hey, i liked rent!

I did too. I was laughing at the Irony of it all.
