Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows features one of the more soul-destroying death orgies in Fantasy-lit history, with a whole cavalcade of Potter supporting players winding up as casualties in the climactic wizard battle. The series never shrank from death — Books 4 through 6 each end with a major character dying, and the whole saga begins with Harry as a newly orphaned baby. But in a new special feature on the Deathly Hallows 2 DVD, author J. K. Rowling notes that she’d planned one fatality that would have probably scarred a generation of young readers.

Are you a responsible pet-lover suffering from 'Harry Potter' withdrawal? Padfoot is now up for adoption!
Over the past few weeks, beta testers for J.K. Rowling’s Pottermore experiment have expressed a range of opinions about the interactive site. Many have complained about the slow admittance process, but the fortunate few who have seen the site have praised both its artwork and the completely immersive experience it has to offer. Keith Staskiewicz, EW’s lucky Potter-tester, said the site will “let you experience some of the fun of living in the world of Harry Potter.”
The fun of living in the world of Harry Potter, eh? Isn’t this ‘fun’ what we’ve all been chasing since our first visit to Hogwarts in 1997? Isn’t it the reason behind the valuable time I’ve spent taking Sorting Hat quizzes (Hufflepuff? I think not), and debating whether to buy a plane ticket to Orlando to sample Universal Studios’ interpretation of Butterbeer? My verdict is a definitive yes. Anyone who has read this series without experiencing the serious side effect of Hogwarts-envy is probably a Death Eater.
Well, now Potter fans (or really just responsible dog lovers) can join in on the fun by making a beloved member of the Potter family a member of their own family! READ FULL STORY
