If you follow JK Rowling on twitter, you will have recently seen this:
Ok, for one, I honestly 100% believe that Rowling needs to STOP. Yes, we all love the HP series and everything that has come out of it however I do believe that it’s at the point where she is drawing it out. But that is not my point I am making today. The point I am making is…
WHAT ABOUT HEDWIG?!?!?!
Like, seriously!! If there is one death that had me sobbing, it was poor little Hedwig. That loyal beautiful owl stepped in front of the killing curse to save Harry, and HE DIDN’T EVEN CARE! He had a “pang” of sadness. WHAT IS THAT? Even if it is the end of the world as we know it, I would have more than just a “pang”. I would be really freakin upset! I would cry and if I didn’t have time to mourn at that point I would do it later, after the world-saving. But Harry didn’t even do that!
In the final HP book, I remember reading it and then waiting for anything to be mentioned about Hedwig. But nope, there was like, one tiny, miniscule moment when Harry was like “oh that happened” and then that was it. NOT COOL HARRY!
I am sad about all of the deaths that happened in the HP series, and I understand that Rowling obviously put a lot of thought into who needed to die. But…poor Hedwig! To die and not even get an honourable mention! Hedwig did SO MUCH for Harry…SO MUCH!!!
So Rowling, thank you for being sad about Snape (I still have mixed feelings about him still), but I really think you should have said Hedwig instead.
Does anyone else agree with me about Hedwig? And please just note, I am not saying that the others deserved to die instead of Hedwig, I am just saying I have an issue that no one seemed to care.
I’m going to go and scream into my pillow now.
