I've seen pictures that support Dobby's death and how it plays out. I know there's a death in the first chapter and who it is and who did it. I know the way the first chapter is presented. I'm glad that Harry doesn't die and that based on what I've read, he isn't a horcrux.
I am curious about who Snape says that to. Perhaps Voldemort for discovering his treachery?
Dobby does indeed die and although I don't know specifics, it involves some sort of mortal wound.
Not sure why Moody had to die, but meh.
I'm curious about how poor little Colin Creevey gets caught up in enough of a mess to get killed.
As for the sorting hat, I guess they would have to make a new one. That page sounds like it could be around the chapter of the book titled something like "The Battle of/for Hogwarts." I'm curious why Voldy would do such a thing.
Fred dying sounds sad because I absolutely love the twins.
Since I read the first chapter, I knew that the death of Tonks and Lupin came up. I will happily post specific details about the first chapter since that's what I read, if you wish, Neph.
Neville killing Nagini sounds cool, especially because Nagini seems to be written as a lot more of a worthy opponent (basically, she sounds very, VERY large).
I knew about Snape being good and Dumbledore plotting his own death, but I don't know what this Elder Wand nonsense is. I suppose we will find out soon. I don't understand the transfer to his victor. Was it something he won from Grindelwald? If so, why does Malfoy get it? If Malfoy does get it, it seems like he in fact has to fight Harry at some point, although Harry doesn't kill him obviously.
I'm VERY curious at how Voldy dies. I still really want him to be run through with Gryffindor's sword because it'd be all ironic and poetic and such (the basilisk died that way, Voldy wanted something of Gryffindor as a horcrux, etc). A theory of his death that I've heard of is that Harry defeats him with the power of love. If that is in fact true, I will be blaring that Huey Lewis song all over town, especially when I leave Wal-Mart after getting my book!
As for Harry's scar going away, I don't think this is true because it is mentioned in the epilogue. While it's not the last word of the book, it's in the last sentence. It mentions how it hasn't hurt in 19 years or something like that.
I knew about the Harry/Ginny ship and children because the epilogue is Harry/Ginny escorting them to the Hogwarts Express and meeting Ron/Hermione and Malfoy's family. I am pretty sure the photos are write because that's concrete proof in my mind (it would take a lot to fake them properly). If that is indeed true then it is very clear that Snape does something VERY VERY important to redeem himself in Harry's eyes (Harry has ALWAYS hated Snape).
I knew about Neville, although unconfirmed spoilers say that it is due to the NATURAL death of Sprout.
I think the Malfoy thing is pretty interesting just because I find it intriguing that he escapes death in the war. I don't know about HIS parents.
I'm sure the publishers are trying to do their darndest to get it all down, but once it got to the torrent sites, where I got mine, there's no stopping it now. It's even worse than was feared though because yesterday and the days before that, only chunks were available and now the whole thing is out.
I have a feeling we are going to be the only ones on here for a while, Neph:-D
