Another thing I'm wondering.

Remember how she's spent 6 books telling us in almost every one how wizards can get hurt like Mugglesx1000 and not die--like falling out windows and bouncing, or falling from a broom umpteen feet off the ground, or regrowing all their bones or whatever? Or all those crazy freaks in the waiting room at St Mungo's and stuff?

How did Fred get killed by a wall? Does that even make sense?

I thought he got killed by a Death Eater? *needs sleep too*

He died when a giant pushed a wall on him, IIRC. But I thought wizards weren't supposed to die as easily as Muggles. I don't understand why someone who's supposed to be such a talented wizard had to die when hit by a rock. It just seemed silly.

Though I have much Percy love now which has nothing to do with my go!good!Percy prediction from OotP. lol.

Apparently, giants push much harder than human-sized bipeds--and he wasn't looking. ?? (That part didn't perplex me, so it's possible that I'm missing part of the problem.)

I thought he was killed by the wall being pushed over by the giant. Maybe it's the malice of intent that counts.

I had to re-read that passage, then put the book down for ten minutes to have a good cry. I cann't believe she killed Fred...

Yeah, it was weird. I just figured a wizard might get hurt badly, but probably not die. Clearly, I thought wrong.

I was hoping maybe he was just stunned...

Poor Fred. I sniveled.
