Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme hosted by Uncorked Thoughts.
This week’s topic is The Worst Harry Potter Death. This is such a hard one because there were so many deaths throughout the series. I’ll discuss the three that bothered me the most in chronological order of the series.
I was literally fighting mad when Bellatrix LeStrange killed Sirius Black. The fact that he just floated away through the archway didn’t help. Harry was finally starting to feel like he had some semblance of a family just to have it taken away in such an abrupt manner. And he couldn’t even have a proper goodbye because there was no body to bury and the whole wizarding world thought Sirius was a mass murderer.
When Hedwig got hit by that killing curse, I was so upset! She was helpless being in that cage and had no way to dodge it! I cried so hard over this one.
Fred Weasley’s death was so tragic. He was joking with Percy as he died which I think just made me cry more. Percy was trying to rekindle his relationship with his family just to witness the death of his brother. Now I don’t really like Percy or the way he acted but I’ll give him credit for finally coming to his senses. The fact that George no longer has his twin to pull pranks with and to be his constant companion was so heart breaking.
