I broke my rule of avoiding all Harry Potter related news. It seemed safe enough, and it turned out to be horribly amusing predictions from someone who doesn’t take the Harry Potter universe very seriously. Definitely worth the read.
The best quote from the whole article is this one, concerning killing off main characters at the end of a series:
Just imagine: At the end of Return of the Jedi, during the celebration on Endor, a young Ewok, drunk on victory and bourbon, carelessly throws a thermal detonator into a bonfire, wiping out the entire main cast. A grateful galaxy is thus spared the pleasures of eighteen-hundred “Expanded Universe” novels and countless slashfic stories where Luke shows a bound and gagged Han Solo what “The Force” is all about.
