Both, please! =o) In very humiliating circumstances for her, too.

Personally, I hope that BOTH Harry and Ginny survive. After losing
almost everyone he cared about, and who cared about him, let poor Harry
have SOMEONE left! =o) ANd more than one someone. I want Ron and
Hermione to survive, also. I fear you're right and that one at least
will be for the chop in book seven. But I don't want it to happen.
I'm also worried about Lupin, and that he'll be killed by the
werewolves. Or even worse, by Pettigrew's silver hand. Ack!

No arguments from me, there. I'll wait and see whether you're right

Harry will have to get a bit better at Legilimency and Occlumency,
first for that to work. But if he's taught by someone he doesn't
absolutely hate, and who doesn't hate him in return, maybe he'll make
better progress at it.
Maybe he should spike LV's drink with one of Fred and George's love
potions. "Chocolate Cauldron, Your Evilness?"

Perhaps Harry's sympathy for and empathy for what Voldemort experienced
in childhood will be enough to drive LV out of his mind WITHOUT having
to "love" LV. I do think Harry's ability to love will be important in
the final matchup, as it has been before.
