    Responding to telemarketers

    I always just say "I'm not interested, sorry, bye" and they always take that ok. If its a lotto type thing, I say I'm under 18 and my parents aren't home, that way they're not allowed to talk to me.

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - 21 July 2007 (NO SPOILERS)

    Re: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Hasn't JKR said many times that she never intended for Harry to survive school and go out into the world? So it is possible he dies. As for the other 2, I think they have to be people that truly care about Harry...maybe not Ron/Hermione...but possibly...
