Moody was cool, vigilant, and inspiring, which made his death a disappointment. It was also chilling to see such a powerful man get taken down by the dark forces.
When Harry exited the maze holding Cedric's body, and Cedric's dad cried out, I definitely teared up. You have to admit that the scene was pretty depressing, whether you loved Cedric or not.
The saddest scene to me was actually in the first book, when Harry sat in front of the Mirror of Erised staring at his family. Of everything in the world he could've desired, the only thing Potter wanted was to have his parents.
Even in the series most darkest moments, Fred and George always managed to lighten things up. Offing one of them, just as Fred was making up with prodigal brother, promised there would be no happy endings here.
Lupin was by far the best professor Harry and friends ever had, while Tonks brought some much-needed spunk to the Order of the Phoenix. So, regardless of circumstances, it was going to be sad watching them bite the dust.
Hedwig's death marked the death of innocence, and the beginning of the end. She was a close companion to Harry, and as anyone who has a pet knows, they're truly part of your family. When she was killed, we all felt the darkness of the last book edging in.
Just as Sirius started to develop a fatherly bond with Harry, his life was cut short by none other than Bellatrix. WHY!
By the last book, everything Albus did made sense. But his funeral was heartbreaking and Hogwarts didn't seem the same without him.
Most of us spent the whole series hating him, only to find out his entire story just as he left us. And he gave everything up for Lily in the end. That's worth a few tears in my book.
Dobby's love for Harry Potter was beautiful and sweet. When Harry dug his grave by hand, trying to give him respect that most house-elves never saw, I dabbed my eyes once or twice.
