So what so all you potter-fans think is going to happen? I have been going back and forth. On one hand, it is a kids book, so I wouldn't think anything too sad would happen, especially after the bombshell in the half-blood prince. On the other hand, the series has become somewhat of an international phenomenom, which appeals to members of all audience, and the books have been getting more "adult" as each one comes out. I think a cool ending would be Harry being seduced by the dark arts, killing Voldemort, and taking his place as the dark lord. He could even take over the ministry, and enslave all good wizards or something like that. I don't think this will happen, though. I am guessing he is going to live, but Ron and Hermione will die, but they will die finally as a couple. Or.... Harry knocks up Ginny, and she has a young wizard who Voldemort tries to kill again. The baby lives, but Harry and Ginny die protecting him. 13 years later, the kid, with a start shaped scar on his cheek, swears revenge on the dark lord. Lather, rinse, repeat. 7 more books! JK Rowling becomes the richest person on earth! What do you guys think?
