All Harry Potter fans have favorite characters whose deaths permanently affected them, and author J.K. Rowling is no exception.


*SPOILER ALERT*

The heartbreaking deaths in the Harry Potter series are seemingly endless. From Sirius to Dobby, Hedwig to Dumbledore, and Fred to Snape, fans of the magical series shed thousands of tears throughout the seven books.

J.K. Rowling took to the fan site Pottermore to tell fans which character she most regrets killing. Contrary to what many might have expected, Rowling's biggest regret was none other than Florean Fortescue, the owner of the ice cream parlor in Diagon Alley.

According to Rowling:

"I originally planned Florean to be the conduit for clues that I needed to give Harry during his quest for the Hallows, which is why I established an acquaintance fairly early on."

The author later realized he was not the best character for the task.

"The problem was that when I came to write the key parts of Deathly Hallows, I decided that Phineas Nigellus Black was a much more satisfactory means of conveying clues. I seemed to have him kidnapped and killed for no good reason. He is not the first wizard whom Voldemort murdered because he knew too much (or too little), but he is the only one I feel guilty about, because it was all my fault."

Some fans are upset that Rowling doesn't most regret killing their beloved characters.



In fact, people are still overwhelmed with sadness over losing their favorite characters.







This is oddly specific...

I would definitely read a version with Rowling's original Florean-centric plot! What do you think?

The key to any successful relationship is communication.

The ability to be open and receptive to what a significant other has to say, as well as the ability to be able to convey something weighing on one's mind, can be healing.

But depending on the circumstance, some things are better left unsaid.

Every family has a black sheep or every family in its entirety are black sheep.

What is a "black sheep" anyway?

It used to mean a person who brought shame or embarrassment to a family, but it's more often used now to mean the member who is just very different from everyone else—sometimes in a good way.

People need to stop throwing out unwanted advice.

And when it is requested, think before you speak.

People with mental disorders don't need everyone telling them they have a fix like "exercise" or "herbal supplements."
