Hanna, you bring up such a good point about Sirius and Harry. Even though Sirius is his godfather, he really is family to him. I think what Harry doesn't realize at the time is that he really has a lot of family, the Weasley's, his friends, Professor Mcgonagall, Hagrid. There are so many others, but I think to him, Sirius was the connection to his parents and that changed how he was family to Harry compared to the other "family" Harry had.
Gus, Oh Dobby! That is a very hard one as well. Yes, that quote so much! I almost teared up just reading it again. Dobby really did die in the best way possible, protecting his friends as a free elf. I think that is something very special.
Robin, I forgot about Colin. I feel so terrible now! You are right, he was so brave to stay behind and continue to fight, especially because it was even more dangerous for him during this time period as a muggle. He was devoted to Harry, and I believe he will certainly be remembered just as highly as the others who were killed during the battle of Hogwarts.
Rowan, I agree! I am so glad Luna survived! I think I would have lost it even worse if something had happened to her. She is definitely my all time favorite character because she reminds me so much of myself. I fell in love with Hermione early on because of her brains, but when Luna was introduced, she was socially awkward just like I was/am and she had her own little quirks, just like I do. It made me feel not so alone anymore. For her to have died, I can't imagine it.
Nina, when it comes to Remus and Tonks, I always think about their son growing up without his parents and only hearing tales of how brave they were and all they did for him to make sure he had a safe world to live in. While their deaths were difficult, I think the way they died, together and fighting for their child's future, was a beautiful way to go.
You all are bringing up so many feels right now! *wipes tears from her eyes*
