I cried when Sirius and Dumbledore died. I also cried when harry buried Dobby.

message 3: by [deleted user] (new)

I also cried when Tonks and Lupin died because I thought it was sad I mean they just had a baby and they don't get to be around to see him grow.

Shifa Lateef | 27 comments I guess I really started crying when Fred died, because its sort of like with no Fred where is George kind of thing. And Percy just came back to the family and all, so they were all together for a short amount of time. I cried when Sirius died b/c he was my favorite charecter. I sort of expected Lupin to die b/c all of the Maurders are gone, and well I sort of wanted to be with his friends, but its sad that he and Tonks left their child.

Ashley (samuraigurl91) | 106 comments Lol! i cried really really hard when Dobby died and i was like sitting in the living room and my nose was blocked and my tears just kept streaming out. xD but that part was really really sad i really couldn't believe he just went like that. and i cried too when Lupin and Tonks died because they just had a baby and now Baby Ted wouldn't ever have his real parents. and i actually closed the book and didn't read it for abt half and hour because i was too shocked that Hedwig just went like that. omg. and i totally cried when Fred died because he just went like that. no more identical twins. imagine the blow for George that both of them have always been the two of them. when you think of one you'll think of the other one too. it was just pure sadness. haih..

Ashley (readerandwriter) I didn't cry but I was heartbroken when Sirius and Hedwig died.

★Lalita ❤︎ (lalita) I was so upset when Dumbledore died, I didn't see that coming. Hedwigs death made me sad and I saw no point in killing him. Fred made me upset because I love the Weasley family and George would have to go on without his twin, they're too funny together.

message 8: by Peng (last edited Aug 25, 2016 01:44PM) (new)

Peng | 317 comments ditto, lalita. i can't get over dumbledore's death. i sort of thought he can't die. harry needs him! if you've read other posts (i think that was jk's many death) hedwig's death was explained and i appreciated jk for such logic in that. can anyone post here why jk let fred die?

Holly Thompson (rabbitt32) | 7 comments I have no idea Peng but I cried when dumbledore died, i also cried when hedwig died... but i really cried when fred died... that was the saddest i believe

message 10: by Emma (last edited Aug 25, 2016 01:45PM) (new)

Emma | 4 comments I cried when harry was in Dumvledore's office after Sirus death. Harry being so upset made me cry

message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

i don't like the choices of characters that were killed. being a mom it made me hate that tonks and lupin died but i understand that some people needed to die

message 12: by [deleted user] (new)

I cry every person killed in the all 7 book (not the bad guy, but the good guys) And the 3 last chapters of the book(7) I cry with no pause.

message 13: by Meghan (last edited Aug 25, 2016 01:45PM) (new)

Meghan | 686 comments I cryed on and off throughout the whole book. I cried when Ron left. I cried when Dobby died. I sobbed when Fred died. I cryed when Lupin and Tonks died. I cried when Harry yelled at Lupin. I cried when Hedwig died. I also cried through out the last three chapters, but I cried the hardest when I closed the book, looked upon it, and realized it was over.

message 14: by Peng (last edited Aug 25, 2016 01:45PM) (new)

Peng | 317 comments well, that just shows how good jk is in her writing because she gets us involved emotionally to the story. I don't think you should dislike death so much, krystyn. death is never the end.

message 15: by Meghan (last edited Aug 25, 2016 01:46PM) (new)

Meghan | 686 comments agreed peng

message 16: by Ashley (last edited Aug 25, 2016 01:46PM) (new)

Ashley (samuraigurl91) | 106 comments i agree too. oh and i cried seriously hard when Dumbledore died too. swear my nose was completely blocked i couldn't stop the tears at all. Lol. i really didn't expect that to happen. i thought he would have survived or something. silly me~

message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

I hate that the books are over. No matter how many times I read the books they are still wonderful but I still want more. I cried during the last 3 books more than anything though. Those were the most emotional ones when it came to the death thing...

message 18: by Peng (last edited Aug 25, 2016 01:47PM) (new)

Peng | 317 comments oh, i don't know samantha. jk got me emotionally involved with harry with him sleeping in the cupboard under the stairs. i was so saddened in book 2 when he felt so alone in his birthday. point is, i feel so affected with all the emotions he went through. that's how good jk is. in site of the not-so-good things that happened in harry's life he still did not turn to evil. he fought for goodness. that's probably why jk did not let harry kill voldemort. she was that consistent.

message 19: by April (last edited Aug 25, 2016 01:47PM) (new)

April (ks5857) I cried for Snape. How sad to have spent your life loving someone who could not, or would not be able to return their love, then protecting Lily's son even though every time he looked at him he would see her eyes in the face of James. Finally to die in such an awful way, in the place where he had almost been attacked as a teen, and then stunned by the trio in 3rd year. His body wasn't claimed, no funeral, no closure for a very brave man.

message 20: by Allie (last edited Aug 25, 2016 01:47PM) (new)

Allie I hated that fred died becausethier a pair, and i also hated when dobby died but i think he was so cute the was he saved harry, i hated whenever someonedied except for bellatrix she was evil but i even felt bad for wormtail because he did feel remorse and he was good at the end but i don't like what he did to the potters

RIP to all the people who died ( that we like)

....Minute of silence

message 21: by Rachel (last edited Aug 25, 2016 01:48PM) (new)

Rachel hahaha...yeah, when everyone died. cried when cedric died (actually, when harry comes out of the maze with his body), when sirius died, when dumledore died, when hedwig died, when harry "died" and when fred died. i did not cry for snape.

message 22: by Cathy (last edited Aug 25, 2016 01:48PM) (new)

Cathy | 50 comments cedric.
Then book 7 was so full of sad deaths.

I agree with April about crying for Snape. I was so happy that he was a good guy after all -- and I really wanted Draco to be good and to be accepted and loved, since he hated so much. Snape too. They hated because they were hated. But Harry was hated, and he didn't hate. . .

(The biggest problem with being overly trained in psychology is that everything is so damn analytical. You know, "is my cat's life MEANINGFUL???!!!")

But I disgree with Kristin's (??) post about the "overuse of death". -- the whole premise of the books was good vs. bad. The good side was up against an amazing foe and one that was bloodthirsty and calculating and horrifying. To make the battle real there would be death on both sides. Deaths like Cedric's or Hedwig's were incidental -- but there are ALWAYS incidental deaths (i.e., not soldiers') in real life wars and fictional wars. not pretty. but realistic. The books would not have been so compelling if the deaths were eliminated.

message 23: by Peng (last edited Aug 25, 2016 01:48PM) (new)

Peng | 317 comments so true you are, cathy. harry may be famous but a lot of people made his life miserable but he didn't turn out bad. in the 2nd book almost all of the students turned against him thinking he was the heir of slytherin just because he's parseltounge. and in the 4th book even ron turned against him believing he went for the triwizard tournament without telling him. but he did not hate anyone! he couldn't even kill wormtail knowing he caused his parents death. he couldn't kill voldemort himself to save everbody's life because it was not in him to hate. that's why i did not feel so much for snape and draco. for me draco and snape were hated because they didn't do good things. james & sirius hated snape because he was so into dark magic which they detest. sorry guys, even if sad things happened to snape i couldn't cry for him. it was not harry's fault his mother loved james so why did snape took it out on him?

message 24: by Meghan (last edited Aug 25, 2016 01:48PM) (new)

Meghan | 686 comments I feel rather the same as peng. I couldn't cry for Snape.
I think that Harry's heartaches make us feel more into the story. Resently I read a book and it was really good, but the charactors where so boring. One of them loses her whole family and the author only spent two paragraphs talking about it!!!! Harry's world is much more real. Sometimes I feel as though I am right beside him, watching what is going on. J.K. Rowling is a fabulous author and I have to say that I am jealous of her mind!!!!!

message 25: by Kenzie (last edited Aug 25, 2016 01:51PM) (new)

Kenzie I almost...like truly swelling eyes and all, almost cried when Harry took his walk to death.

message 26: by Lynn (new)

Lynn (dwell_ondreams) | 25 comments I cried when Fred died. I also cried when Professor Snape died. And when Dumbledore died. I almost cried when Hedwig died - it was just a shock, I guess. Dobby's death was sad, but I didn't cry. I was kind of shocked about Lupin & Tonks as well.

message 27: by Sanskriti (new)

Sanskriti just like lynn said..i almost cried when hedwig died..and that was shock.

and then fred..i cried like hell.......
its unfair for such an awesome person to die at such a young age (im not accusing rowling). imagine what fred would've done in his walk of life, done great things...it was tragic, i hated that moment....
the last line of the paragraph in which he died:
the ghost of his last laugh etched upon his face.
beautiful..and sad

message 28: by Maya (new)

Maya (numerounochewylover) | 270 comments I cried when Dumbledore died, when Snape died, when Fred died, and when I was afraid that Harry was going to die. I agree with Sanskriti; that was one of the saddest moments of the series.

message 29: by Padya (new)

Padya Paramita | 8 comments Fred!!!!!!!.......***sniff***

message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

I teared up a little when sirius died, then again when dumbledore kicked the bucket, but the 7th book...

I started crying when Dobby died (he was my favourite) then I practically bawled my way through the end of the book. (jk - there were some tears streaming down my cheeks, though)

My problem is that I get to attached to characters when I read a book. I fall in love every time I go to the library.

Frank - I totally agree with you. Rowling cut off voldemort's death waaaaaay to short. Even though harry is the main character, the whole plot really focused around both voldemort and harry. In fact, the whole thing seemed kinda rushed.

message 31: by Tracey (new)

Tracey i actually didn't cry when anyone died. unfortunately after i started reading the entire series i came across a couple of spoilers, so i knew that Sirius & Dumbledore would die, but the way they died still shocked me. i felt more of a hollow, frozen numbness when someone died.

Fred's death was the closest i came to crying. i think i had grown to depend on Fred & George's comic relief, and it really never crossed my mind that one of *them* would die -- i thought that if a Weasley had to die that it would be Percy (after making up with the family).

Dobby's death shocked and angered me the most; i remember screaming when i read that part! if anyone deserved the right to live on the peaceful side, it was Dobby! the part of Dobby's death that nearly made me cry was the way that Harry grieved for him.
*okay...i'm starting to tear up now...*

i was definitely shocked by how Snape died, but after reading "The Prince's Tale", i was completely frozen. even after i finished the entire book, i kept reading that chapter over & over. i kind of had a feeling that Snape had loved Lily, but i was totally blown away at the depth of his feelings, and the lengths he went through to atone for his mistakes.

message 32: by Morgan (new)

Morgan | 6 comments Surprisingly, I didn't cry when Dumbledore died. But I was a wreck when Sirius died (disappeared, vanished, whatever...)

message 33: by Ruth (new)

Ruth Barone I cried when Hedwig died and when Dobby died (and lost it when Harry was burying him). That's odd - I didn't cry for any of the "human" deaths. Dumbledore is my favorite character and I didn't even cry at his death. Maybe because I wasn't expecting Dobby and Hewig to die, but I thought the other deaths were very probable, so I was a little more prepared?

message 34: by Rainy (new)

Rainy i cried when harry was almost died it was so sad. and i cried when dumbledore died but i got so upset when snape was killed i stopped when i read that.

message 35: by Angie (new)

Angie I was real upset when Snape died. Didn't he tell Harry to look him in the eyes... it was so Snape could look into Lily's eyes one more time, he loved her so. Everyone always said Harry had his mother's eyes.

message 36: by Taylor S (last edited Feb 06, 2008 12:08PM) (new)

Taylor S | 118 comments I was actually very mad when Dumbledore died. To the point of throwing the book across the room. I got very teary about Dobby, Snape, and Hedwig. The only time that I ever really cried was for Lupin and Tonks and Sirius. I was also very upset when I thought that Harry was dead.
The seventh book was quite an emotional roller coaster ride for me. I was really heartbroken when Harry saw Voldemort's point of view of the night Lily and James died. That was the first time that we got the entire scene, and it really upset me. The entire series is very heartbreaking from the start because we know from the beginning that Harry is all alone in the world and then people start dying and we know that there is never going to be an end to it. The end is really worth it, though.

message 37: by Suzy (new)

Suzy | 3 comments I did! I cried with Sirius died and when I had read that Remus and Tonks had died too, I was bawling at that point because I had tears from when Harry "died"

message 38: by Suzy (new)

Suzy | 3 comments Oh yeah, I also cried when dobby and hedwig died, it was just so tragic.

message 39: by [deleted user] (new)

when fred died like i said- fred is my hubby

message 40: by Elnaz (new)

Elnaz | 20 comments Oh,yes.when Dumbledore and Fred died

message 41: by Ranata (new)

Ranata Clark (thatchicknata) I cried when Dumbledore died even though I knew it was coming because I was spoiled by someone online.

message 42: by Lynny (new)

Lynny (lynnyo4) | 78 comments Yah me too!!! i cried histarically at almost all the deaths in HP 6 and 7!!!:'(

message 43: by Tess (last edited Feb 14, 2008 07:32PM) (new)

Tess | 134 comments Dumbledore, Sirius, Hedwig, Snape, Voldemort, Fred, Dobby, Tonks, Lupin...
They say i'm too emotional.

message 44: by Josie (new)

Josie | 1 comments for me it was fred. i just had to close the book and bawl for a few moments. and then it was made worse by percy shielding fred's body from any further spells....ugh. i was a mess!

message 45: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth (greengirl) | 4 comments I cried every time a major character died. Actually, I didn't cry when Cedric died, but I bawled when Harry had to retell the story. It was awful. But seriously, I sobbed for Serious, Dumbledore, and Fred. I must have used a box of tissues during book 7 alone.

message 46: by Saybaar (new)

Saybaar | 6 comments Fred and Lupin...they were my two favorite characters!!! And with Lupin, especially, it was just kind of "oh, Lupin's dead, let's go finish the battle". I mean, they could have spent a little more time...but the effect created by that was good, so whatever.

message 47: by Kathy (new)

Kathy (bookgoddess1969) When didn't I cry! Hedwig.....who expected that! At one point I thought Hagrid was dead, too and that killed me! Lupin, Tonks....with Teddy, just a baby left behind. And Fred, who was just a kid still! Wow! So many old friends! Even after rereading already (not as many as some of you, I know), I cried all over again!

message 48: by Sella (new)

Sella Malin U Betcha!! I cried when Dumbledore died, and I was too shocked to cry when Sirius died. I also shed some tears for Dobby. And.. the second I read the sentence where Dumbledore died, I was listening to my sister sing I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houseton (how fitting, huh) and now whenever I hear that song I think of his death.

message 49: by Sella (new)

Sella Malin Oh and of course.. how could I forget Lupin and Tonks? or Fred? And I cried at the end, because.. there is NO MORE :(

message 50: by Sella (new)

Sella Malin Sorry, two more.. I was too shocked with Hedwig to cry, I thought she was going to come back any second, and I cried when I thought Harry was going to die. I actually closed the book and said, "No.. no! Please no!" It seems like my cries were answered.
