With that being said, watching characters that had guided me through adolescence dropping like flies was nothing short of heartbreaking.

I decided to make this list as I still mourn, and have not yet managed to get a life.

Without further adieu, I will once again thrust my unwanted opinion upon the internet in the form of the Top 8 Most Heartbreaking Harry Potter Deaths.
