It's the 16th anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts. I'm having a moment's silence over my keyboard. I hated killing some of those people.

Early this morning, J.K. Rowling sent out a tweet (embedded above) to honor the 16th anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts.
Rowling confessed that she “hated killing some of those people.” As of this writing, the Harry Potter author’s message has been re-tweeted more than 83,000 times. Which of the characters do you love most?
SPOILER ALERT: If you don’t want to know more about the book, you should stop reading now.
Scholastic released the final novel in the Harry Potter series in July 2007. That dramatic fight between Dumbledore’s Army and the Death Eaters inspired several Facebook fan groups including “Neville Longbottom is a BAMF,” “Fred Weasley — We Salute You,” and the “NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU BITCH!” : Mrs. Weasley Appreciation Group.” Do you remember your experience reading Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows?
