February 18, 2007 -- HARRY Potter is not going to die.
But Professor Snape will.
Harry Potter will not hook up with Hermione. But his best friend will.
And Harry Potter will never see Dumbledore alive again. But Dumbledore will still manage to help him.
How do I know these things about the recently completed seventh and final book in the beloved Harry Potter series?
Like millions of other Potter-loving muggles, Im just guessing. Thats half the fun.

I don't think only Slytherins can go bad. That would be too obvious. We don't know (at least I don't) what House Mundungus or Umbridge or Fudge were in as students. And Percy is a bit of a question mark!
JKR has stated many times through Dumbledore that it's all about choices. The Sorting Hat wanted to put Harry into Slytherin, but he begged for Gryffindor.He's also a Parselmouth but that doesn't make him a bad guy.
I did some of my best shrieking in high school. :)
I'd grown into Snide Sneering by high school. I guess it's just an individual choice ...
Do you think Hagrid was a Gryffindor before he was expelled? He always cheers for Gryffindor but I think that's because of Harry. Hagrid impresses me as Hufflepuff material - Hard working, but not too bright.
We'll see in this movie. She shrieked once in "Goblet of Fire" at the World Cup and she was 14 then.
I think he was Gryffindor. Neville isn't too bright, either.
You wanna see a magic wand? I got a magic wand riiigght here!
Andy was Devine!
"And now kids its time for.....Classic Cartoons with Tugboat Willy!"
Boy did I just date myself!
Neville is brave and that is the quality Gryffindor valued most. He stood up to Harry, Hermione and Ron in Book 1 to keep them from sneaking out and getting into trouble. In Book 5, Neville fought Death Eaters while carrying the unconscious Hermione, despite his smashed face. In Book 6, Neville answered the call for help when Death Eaters invaded Hogwarts. He was one of only 2 DA members to do so.
Hagrid is brave and loyal, too, so I think he could easily be Gryffindor.
Sounds like a fun evening at the cinema!
Possessed? Not really. More like a willing host. He made a choice to host Voldemort, which doesn't seem like a "good" thing.
You know, I hadn't thought about that. He was Voldemort's roommate, wasn't he? A good friend, if nothing else. That would mean that Hagrid was Slytherin. I never saw Hagrid as the ambitious type, just as a lovable big lug with a badass motorcycle and trick umbrella. (Hmmmm, Hagrid would've fit in on the 1966 version of "Batman" on TV.)
Don't think he was Tom Riddle's roommate. Hagrid was expelled in his third year. In Book 2, Riddle was a sixth year when Hagrid got the boot.
Neville can watch my back anytime.
I can't link to the exact page, but if you click the site link, then click on A-Z Index, then H for Hagrid, then Hagrid at Hogwarts, you'll see where I got the info. :)
I think Neville is smarter and more capable than he usually seems to be ... except in time of extreme necessity. Then he shows what he can do.
And honestly, I think he has better instincts as a human being than Harry, Hermione, and the Weasley students. I'd sooner trust Neville with something of value than any of them.
I think Hermione is extremely trustworthy. She used the Time Turner responsibly and never told anyone about it until it was absolutely necessary.
Maybe not roommates, but in the same section of the school. Didn't the movie show them going downstairs to Hagrid's room. Slytherin has a dungeon, Gryffindor has a tower.
