what's your opinion about it? i was never surprised that SNAPE had turned out to be the traitor.. anyway, i was happy that harry liked ginny. i never liked cho chang anyway (peace to those who like her!).. hmm, no offense. but a thought occurred to me that maybe j.k. rowling was influenced by harry potter fanfics, because Book 6 was somehow different (can't point out what makes it different, it just is) compared to other harry potter books. so much twist in that book,eh? but it's still good.. it's just sad that dumbledore had to die. :(

J.K. had all these books planned out before even writing the first one. She had it all planned out, how book 7 would end who would die in all of them, etc. So I don't think the fans influenced her. I'm still unsure about Snape. I think that he and Dumbledore got together and Snape told Dumbledore what Draco had to do, and I think Dumbledore was pleading Snape to kill him because it had to be done and he didn't want Draco to become a murderer at such a young age. I think there's a lot of unfolding to go yet.

i also believe that snape is not a traitor. it feels more like what happened in the tower had been planned by dumbledore a long time ago. perhaps that the reason why dumbledore had to ask snape to kill him was to make sure that snape goes ahead with the rest of the plan. if snape did not kill dumbledore then his cover would be blown and he would not be able to continue working as a spy for the order. he would've been killed by voldemort when he returned to him if he let dumbledore go. snape's killing dumbledore also would make voldemort trust him more and perhaps this is the most crucial part of dumbledore's plan, to make snape the trusted servant of voldemort so they can fully penetrate his group. and this is the reason why i can't wait for the last book...i just can't wait to find out what dumbledore's real plan was...all i can say is that i trust dumbledore's instincts, snape will, in the end, turn out to be good afterall...
