The sad thing is that I'd read all those!!!
Well, you couldn't actually read one of those because Harry's going to court Luna, not Ginny... :LOL
When did JKR say that? I really thought that I'd read that she said they there *couldn't* be any more books after the end of the 7th, which made me think that either he dies, or something else catastrophic happens... Maybe I dreamed that. I've been a bit odd lately...
I do think it's odd that Bellatrix is the only deatheater who is female. Also, I thought it was interesting the way that her relationship with Voldy-thingy played out in OoTP. She was the only one that he saved, out of all the death eaters there in the Ministry. She seemed enamored with him, and fearful in a sort of way. She's married, which would make for an interesting conversation back at the ol' Voldy cave....
Here's what I think for HBP (these are not based in any sort of leakage reading or anything, just me and my little ol' brain):
--We find out that Petunia is really a wizard who chooses not to be a wizard because of some sort of self-hatred.
--Harry and Luna fall in love.
--Hermione and Ron finally get together.
--Neville comes into his own and plays a bigger part in this book. Perhaps he's the one sacrificed.
I cannot wait. We are going to the beach the next day and I fully expect to read it all while we're there.
