You just read the latest book? The Half-Blood Prince?

Oh. I know Potter isn't killed in that one. I was hoping the new one came out and I hadn't noticed. I hold out hope for his death in the next one.

Rarely has a fictional character so richly deserved a tragic end.

(Someday I may read the books to find out if I'm right to so thoroughly abhor the character of Harry Potter.)

You haven't read the books yet want him dead? Man, I'm glad I don't listen to everyone else that much...

Well, I have seen all of the movies so it is more based on that portrayal. Which, since book fans generally approve of the movies I'm going to assume is somewhat consistent.

Not that I take it so seriously, but this pretty well captures what I think of the character. I like other characters, but the Potter one is just a leech.

You've based an outspoken and venomous opinion of a literary character based on the movies made based on the novels. Neat.

Fear not. I sense a strategy.

It was really good, though. Aside from the sad part. And, while i think the sad part is going to STAY sad, I am hoping parts of it aren't as sad as they seem!

Yeah, that's not so new anymore. But I don't really think he's dead anyway, so don't be sad.

I agree, I think *you know who* is only mostly dead. Too much foreshadowing going on.
