Earth to J.K. Rowling...

So, I'm sure we've all seen or heard this rumor that JK Rowling is going to kill Harry in the end of the 7th book. Many fan-folk believe destroying both Voldie and Harry is the only way to bring good and evil into a state of equilibrium. Honestly, I don't know what she'll do. It kind of stopped being a "children's book" series awhile ago, so the series doesn't have to end with rainbows, peppermint snapdragons, and happy bunnies frolicking through a green valley of freedom. Besides, in the words of Mitch Hedberg - may he rest in peace, "any book is a children's book if the kid can read."

The thing that caught my attention, was when aaskie posted this little snippet:

But Harry's creator is sure that Harry must die."After I am dead, they will not be able to bring Harry back," is her justification.

Now, I never knew J.K. gave a name of who she was going to kill off. I heard two people are going to die, and I thought - well, duh. First Cedric, then Dumbledore...we have to up the ante, don't we?


"After I am dead, they will not be able to bring Harry back."

Jigga what?! Lady, you have no idea what they can do to Harry, and they definitely don't need to wait for you to be dead in order to do it. Liek duh, zomg. Some fic writers have already turned him into a seahorse*, for cryin' out loud. For one thing, J, you've made Voldemort almost impossible to kill. Even when he's melted off the back of Quirrell's head he doesn't die. Even if he had been dead, he could've came back through that damn diary. He's got horcruxes... and the realm you've created is filled with endless possibilities and magic, which means you don't even have to explain said possibilities. If Voldie can slip through death's clutches time and time again, of course writers can bring Harry back. We may not know what else they'll do to him... but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
