Whom would you have saved who died?
If any of you are on Goodreads and subscribed to the Harry Potter group, you may have seen and even answered this question. To some it may seem senseless – whoever is dead is dead, and there is no point in trying to change the facts. But I believe fandom is about asking questions of the stories we love, not just reading and accepting. Fandom is about digging deep, tearing stories apart to find their core, and then learning from them as we rebuild them in our minds.
Borrowing this question from Goodreads, I would like to rearrange it and pose it to all of the members of the Harry Potter fandom in a way that I think will help us in this “tearing apart and rebuilding.” My question to all of you (and myself) is this:
What single character who died or appeared dead in the Harry Potter series would you save if you could, AND why do you think their death was necessary to the story and what we learn through the story?
All right, it is all you! Looking forward to your responses. I will be posting my own as well.
