Only The Good Die Young

Only The Good Die Young

Do you remember when you read Harry Potter and the Order of The Phoenix? That moment when you read the words:

But Sirius did not reappear (p711)

Did you cry? I did. And I waited. I kept thinking, no, this can’t be right. Sirius will find a way to cheat death, surely!

I waited some more, all through The Half-Blood Prince and right up to the bitter end (Harry and Ginny? Really?) of The Deathly Hallows, hope sprang. Until it withered and died.

How cruel was that? Poor Harry lost his parents, then finally found some family with Sirius and Dumbledore only to lose them both! Oops, spoiler alert, Dumbledore dies too. With all the magic and prophecy floating around, surely she could have found a way to save one of them?

Apparently not.


  1. Wifey cried and cried and cried and cried cried and cried cried and cried cried and cried when Dobby the elf died, and only slightly less when Tonks bit it. I only cried when I found out Dumbledore was gay.

      Pfft! Dobby went to the other side where he could have all the smelly socks he wanted. The only death that I took seriously was Sirius’s.
