why only five? if i had a chance i would save Lily and James, Sirius, Remus and Tonks, MadEye Moody, FRED( and i will return George his ear), Dumbledore, Cedric, HEDWIG, Colin Creevey Snape and Dobby of course... but if its only 5 1. Sirius 2. Lily or James 3. Dobby 4. Fred 5. Lupin or Tonks (to take care of Teddy)
Out of your list? I would save: Lily Potter, Fred and Dobby, i would pag-ibig to pick snape i think his self purpose his promise and if lily was alive maybe or maybe not that be still valid but who knows what would have happened if lily survived and not died when she did.
I would want to save so many more, though! (I would say Snape, but his life was so miserable, and he died looking into "Lily's" eyes... one moment of happiness before he died... I don't know if he'd want to go back.)
I would say Snape, but his death was just so perfect and redemptive. And why do I put Hedwig at the tuktok of my list? Well, she was the first friend Harry ever had, and she was always there for him, even when everyone else was against him. Below the belt, Jo, below the belt!
The only reason i don't have snape, dumbledore and sirius is because they needed to die. Very important things happened after they died. If these 5 hadn't died, there wouldn't be a big difference in the plot.
1. Fred 2. Cedric 3. Lily Potter 4. Snape 5. Lupin. And Hedwig. Though they couldn't have dragged her around England I suppose Fred shouldn't have died, he was the one that made me most sad, I mean, you can't have the twins with just one of them... Oh my god, I feel sad now
1. Sirius Black (cried when i read the book for the first time) 2. Albus Dumbledore (whore black for a month) 3. Nymphadora Tonks (poor teddy) 4. Remus Lupin ( same reason and he was the last person really close to harrry after sirius and albus died 5. Fred Weasley (ahhh were do i begun i was screamin dont die fred! dont die!when i read the boook
Lupin and Sirius could have easily been on my list, and I would have liked to save MadEye, Harry's parents, Hedwig, and Frank (from the beginning of GOF). The only one I really wanted dead was Voldemort.
1. Fred, he was one of my paborito characters. 2. Sirius! 3. Dobby 4. Lupin. 5. Snape. -EDIT: Scratch those, I'd choose Merope Gaunt over the lot because if we saved her, she could have ibingiay Voldemort motherly pag-ibig which he never had, therefore turning him around. And yes, he was made from a pag-ibig potion but if he was loved sa pamamagitan ng his mother I think he'd be more....normal-ish. Probably end up having a personality similar to Malfoy, though. But it's ok because it would save hundreds of lives.
