And it's become kind of a tradition in recent years for J.K. Rowling to apologise, on the anniversary of their death, for killing off one of the characters who died during the battle. Twitter / Twitter: @jk_rowling Back in 2015, she apologised for killing Fred Weasley. And I think I can speak for all of us when I say: It's still not OK, Jo. Last year, she apologised for killing Remus Lupin. Also not OK, if you're wondering. Warner Bros. HE HAD SO MUCH MORE TO OFFER. 😭😭😭 J.K. Rowling @jk_rowling Arthur lived, so Lupin had to die. I'm sorry. I didn't enjoy doing it. The only time my editor ever saw me cry was over the fate of Teddy. 😢 07:37 AM - 02 May 2016 Reply Retweet Favorite And the tradition lives on, because J.K. just tweeted an apology for another death. And, oh my god, it's a big one. "WHO COULD IT BE?" I hear you cry. "IS IT COLIN CREEVEY, WHO SNUCK BACK INTO THE CASTLE AND DIED BEFORE HIS TIME BECAUSE HE WANTED TO FIGHT ALONGSIDE HIS HERO?"
