Cinders picked I believed he was dead and knew he wasn't coming back:
It's classic adventure story plotline. Star Wars, Lord of the Rings... The mentor ALWAYS has to die in order for the protege to come into his own.

Quoting Cinders:
"It's classic adventure story plotline. Star Wars, Lord of the Rings... The mentor ALWAYS has to die in order for the protege to come into his own."

Exactly!

Can u imagine how bad it would be if dumbledore were a mob boss.... or like a crime lord or something? he would have been unstoppable. He really is the puppet master. I liked him even more after finding out all that stuff about him. He really does rock my socks.

How CRAP would it have been if he was still alive. I mean, Dumbledores a cool charactor, but bringing him back to life would ruin everything in the series (hence not being able to bring the dead to life)

volleyblue13 picked I was aware that he was dead, but still didn't want to believe it:
Ok, as soon as I read the part where he died, like that paragraph, I just sat there 4 like 5 minutes, trying to take it all in!! Then, my eyes started tearing up, i cried 4 a few seconds, then I just kept reading in shock. I knew there was no possible way for him to "come back from the dead", but I was all like, "Its Dumbledore! He can do ANYTHING!" lol. (p.s. most of my crying was during the movie, not the book, because you could actually SEE it happening)

I cried. Then I cried again at everyones reaction when they found out he had died. Especially Hagrids when he thought Harry had just hit his head really hard I was like no Hagrid he's really dead lol I especially cried at his funeral and I HATED the fact Umbridge attended!! I wish the Centaurs dragged her back in the forest. Loved their tribute by the way and the merpeople :D

Lisseth picked I thought he'd come back somehow:
NO!!!!!!! I was totally stunned! It was strange, because the first HP book I read was the 7th one. So when I realized Dumbledore had died, it was like..."What! Terrible! Things are out of control now!"
So when it came, When I saw the sixth film I already knew that Dumbledore was gonna die so I was in calm. Although when the scene came,I remember my heart stopped beating! Even a couple of tears rolled down! I would have believed he was going to come back somehow but I knew he won't! But no! Then I breathe deep and started to accept the things:)

When Dumbledore died it was the only time when I started second guessing how the series would end. For the first time I thought "if Rowling is capable of this, maybe she'll kill off Harry". I would enjoy reading Jo's take on an alternate ending where Voldemort wins.
