to tell you the truth, i didn't really get upset at the deaths while reading. i don't know why, really, and i'm amazed that i wasn't pulling out the tissues. the only reason i can think of for this is that i went into reading this book expecting loads of people to die, and so when someone did, it wasn't a surprise. i never approached any of the previous like this because i always either assumed or hoped everyone would be safe. maybe my recent break up put me in a bit of a bad mood? oh well. i'm sure reading all of the books over again before this one would have helped. Snapes however was not a pleasant one for me, as i have relised i have a lot in common with his charachter. almost like watching yourself die.

The characters that I was most upset about dying were Snape, Dobby, Lupin, Tonks, and Fred. I can't believe that J.K. killed Lupin. And I agree with what KOK said, about how it's a bit upsetting how all four Marauders died.

Ooooh, I was thinking about starting a RIP thread myself. The death which had the most affect on me was Lupin's. I can't believe it. Last time I was low was when Sirius died, but that wasn't this deep. But as I said before, I'm too old to develop another post-HP depression. When I read that sentence, I had to read it over and over again. I thought I was delusional. I don't know if this is normal, but since the, I can't go to sleep, 'cause I always cryin the night.
I know it's stupid, and he was only a character, just ink on a paper, but he was my favourite character and a part of my life.

You've summed up the exact same way I felt about Lupin's death, we don't see him die but when she mentions hes dead. I'm almost exactly alike to him, the same personality with the same failings (self doubt, put my friends before me and look for their appreciation too much. Heck I'm already greying as well (at 20)) so to see him dead it was like a mirror of me. You really summed up how I felt there Vapor, only with Lupin not Snape.

I'm surpised at the fact that in the epilogue, assuming Harry found the Ressurection Stone, that it doesn't show him using it. He can live with his parents and Sirius and Lupin, I don't understand why he wouldn't.
