Who will die in Book 7?

One of the most frequently asked questions in the HP Fandom. I must say, I've thought about this a lot since HBP came out last year and I've come to some conclusions.
I'm going to list some characters and say if I think they'll live or not, then state my reason for thinking that.

Harry Potter
-I think he's going to...die. Unfortunately. All my fellow fans will hate me for this, but I'm a big supporter of the "Harry is a horcrux" theory and will have to kill himself to save the world from Voldy. I'm not going to get into huge details about why I think that, though, because that will take forever. (If you want my reasoning, PM me on the Leaky Lounge, username BrettMac)

Ron Weasley
-I think he's gonna live. My reason for thinking so is that I just can't see why he would die, as it would be a very big stretch for Jo to use him as bait to lure Harry into cracking and attacking Voldemort. So yes, Ron will live.

Hermione Granger
-Live, no doubt about it.

Ginny Weasley
-I think she'll die, actually. What Harry said to her at the end of Book 6 made me feel that we are going to see Ginny used as bait for Harry again. As much as I hate the thought of it, I don't think Ginny will see the end of Book Seven.

Minerva McGonagall
-I'll bet she lives, although I'm not quite sure. I could see her as a potential victim as Headmistress of Hogwarts (If the school does reopen, that is), but it took years for Voldemort to get Dumbledore so maybe McGonagall has a chance.

Sybill Trelawney
-Ooh, tough one. I think she may die, because Voldemort might possibly try to get the prophecy out of her and fail miserably. But then, if she stays at Hogwarts, I think McGonagall will be able to protect her.

Horace Slughorn
-I don't think he'll play much of a role in Book Seven , if any. He's served his purpose in the series, and that was to get Snape in the DADA role.

Severus Snape
-Die, die, die, die, die. He's put himself in a place that, even if he is loyal to Dumbledore, he's dead anyways. If he's a Death Eater, then the good guys'll kill him; if not, then Voldemort will have his head for treason.

-Hm, that's a tough one as well. I think he'll probably die, but Harry will have to sacrifice himself for it to happen.

There we go. Also, look at my Book Seven cover that I made myself--amazing what a Google search and five minutes on Paint can do for you, huh?

Very interesting on how you think people will live or die. Hmmm, I never would have CONSIDERED Harry being a horcrux. Interesting indeed.

Severus I can totally see dying. No one likes him anyways. ^.^
