Re: 'two died that i didnt intend to, one character got a reprieve'

Lupin and Tonks died, leaving a baby, and so did Ted Tonks. Really tragic for Mrs Tonks, whose name I should know but I do not off of the top of my head, and tragic for the baby.

Lupin was a must. He lived a life of misery. But he died after marrying Tonks and baby's birth. That was a bit tragic.

I think the character that got a reprieve, was Percy. I think JKR meant Percy to die originally, and not Fred.
Wish it had been Percy rather than Fred. Don't think I'll ever get over Fred's death. The saddest part of the book for me, kept thinking of George who had to live on without his other half.

Tonks' Mum, was she called Andromeda?

Saw on Leaky that JKR has said who got the reprieve. It's with the Today Show stuff from later this week. I won't say in case some don't want to know for themselves, but I'm glad this person didn't die. Of course, I didn't interpret her statements all along as being what she said so . . . . there you go.

I think Dobby was probably intended - as it was a big part in the goblin helping them.

Tonks and Lupin, too - the paralles possible with teddy to Harry/Harry to Sirius are too neat. Also, it shows the real way to defeat death is birth.

Re: 'two died that i didnt intend to, one character got a reprieve'

My guesses were that Percy got the repreive and Fred was the replacement, either would have given Molly the fury to fight Belatrix, but I think Percy getting the chance to really fight and come back to the family made sense, the other added death . . . maybe madeye, nothing like grabbing people early in the book and setting the tone. Mad-Eye was easy, a known and liked character, but not so major that we had fallen in love with him.

Re: 'two died that i didnt intend to, one character got a reprieve'

I saw who got the reprieve somewhere or other, some news site.

It wasn't any of the people mentioned so far!

He was to have died in OotP; I'm so glad he didn't, poor Harry had enough stress that year without a death on his conscience (though of course it wouldn't really have been Harry's fault).
