In honour of all these deaths, writer J. K. Rowling uploads a tweet on her personal Twitter every year as she issues an apology for any one death she had written during the infamous battle. Last year, she apologized for killing Snape (and fans started fighting again). Perhaps by killing off beloved characters, J.K. Rowling is teaching us something about valor, and through Voldemort, teaching us about the corruption that can come from clinging to that which seems infinitely good: life itself. Amanda is a Ravenclaw at Hogwarts, a Horned Serpent at Ilvermorny and has a white stallion for a Patronus.
Rowling's obituary is one not aimed at a casualty of the Battle of Hogwarts, but a character that died shortly before it: Dobby the House-Elf. Dobby was not killed in the Battle of Hogwarts but died earlier on.
"It's that anniversary again", she wrote. This year: "Remus Lupin".
For ardent fans of the widely-popular Harry Potter books and movies, May 2 is more than just an ordinary day. This year, Dobby the House Elf has earned the official tribute. On Wednesday, May 2, she turned her attention to Dobby.
In 2017, Rowling atoned for the death of Severus Snape, a controversial Hogwarts professor and (as it turned out) double agent who carried a torch for Harry's mother and had a vendetta against his father.
Now a hit show on Broadway and in the West End, fans are hopeful Rowling will one day allow it to be a movie too.
