GO AWAY IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE SPOILED!!!
Okay. I figured it would be Dumbledore. She set us up for that all book with the "teaching Harry everything he knows" bits. Thought it could be Malfoy, but I know she hates Malfoy and Snape (as their creator) and would want more of an emotional impact. Well... It worked. Cried. Not Obi-Wan screaming at burning Nugget-kin, but you know - sorow filled.
AND I FUCKING KNEW IT ABOUT SNAPE!! Greasy bastard. Thought she would go for the obvious with Fleur, glad she didn't. Harry/Ginny!!! I love that. Okay: JK Rowling TOTALLY knows about fanfiction and our likes in the ships. Remus/Tonks? Come on. Hints of Neville/Luna? She knows, dude. But why did she make my Ron slurp with that horrible girl??? *pets Hermione, knows it will work its way out*
I didn't see the not going to school in his 7th year coming. Am I thick? I thought maybe the Ministry would suggest to have Harry run the show in a way, alongside McGonagall or something.
*Dumbledore DRANK the horcruxes. Which is why it weakened him. Which is why he begged for Snape to kill him. Which means (dammit) that Snape is a double agent, but not how the Death Eaters imagine.
*One of the horcruxes is in HARRY. Which is why his head hurts. Which is why he wasn't killed. Which is why he is so important to Voldemort. Which is why they have a connection.
WHICH IS WHY ONLY ONE WILL SURVIVE.
Okay. I'm SO, SO sad by the funeral. Ron holding Hermione... Grawp patting Hagrid on his head... The centaurs and merpeople... UMBRIDGE.
She better write fast.
