Post Thousands petition against the end of Potter

Waterstone's have launched a website with an online petition (saveharrypotter.co.uk) against the end of Harry Potter. The campaign is designed to encourage J.K.Rowling to write further novels.

Quote:
"Millions, perhaps billions of us, love reading his adventures and we never want them to end."
Quote:
"Sir Arthur Conan Doyle famously killed off Sherlock Holmes, yet brought him back after years of demand from his fans and publishers," said Waterstone's Wayne Winstone. "Couldn't the same happen for Harry Potter?"
I won't be signing it. As far as I'm concerned, decisions such as this are Jo's alone. I find this whole charade arrogant, disrespectful and rude.

I'd love to have a prequel, but every author is entitled to decide what to do with their pens, and not to get typecasted with only one storyline.
As many have said, that's Jo's decision to make.

My sentiments exactly. How selfish and greedy to demand that this one person keeping writing for purely their content. It's ridiculous. If Rowling wants to write more, she'll write more and it'll be of her own fruition, not based on some petition.

Although I don't want the Potter series to end, I don't think people should be acting like this. I mean, I don't think they should go on with their lives moping either because there will be that sad time when the final movie is done and we're all sad, but we really should respect what Jo decides, this is hers and we should respect that....

Goodness gracious people.

Though I don't doubt we all WANT Harry to end, how much fun is it going to be to read further books knowing we FORCED Jo to write more...

*sigh*

I partly agree w/ this. I don't want 2 see HP end but it has @ some point. No one will grow out of hp, but she might.

When I heard about this, I rolled my eyes. It's people like that that make HP fans sound like fanatics. Most of us respect Jo's decision, but the media don't pick up on that :/

que sera sera. as much as i love hp, i kind of want the series to end...that's how it's always supposed to have been, and i feel like if she didn't do that it would be like, selling out or something. also, it might be nice to have some closure. but whatever jk decides will be alright with me.

It's all normal knee-jerk reactions. Good to know the fans are really intensely devoted. But yes, Jo must be allowed her own artistic vision.

I agree, it's JK books not theirs, she's worked for years on them and deserves some time off from her work. She'll write more books, which we'll fall in love with and they'll stop complaining.

It is entirely up to her, no matter how sad we may be at the end of the series. We shouldn't be interfering with her personal decisions, and I will not sign that.

Gryffindor stupid people making up the petition

I really don't want it to end but the books have been written to end.
So let the books end. I loved them but the it all has to end soon.
Because you can't have too much of a good thing, yes they were good, excellent even. But if JK wants to end it, let her.
I won't ben signing that petition

I admit I hate that the books are endings, but it's Jo's decision to do so, and I respect that.

Bassoons galore!

What amuses me the most is that everyone's all upset for the people signing ... but did anyone else notice that it's a book company that started the petition? Anyone ever considered that they made the website in hopes that JK will cave in and they'll get to sell more of her novels, and make more money?

Quote:
"Sir Arthur Conan Doyle famously killed off Sherlock Holmes, yet brought him back after years of demand from his fans and publishers," said Waterstone's Wayne Winstone. "Couldn't the same happen for Harry Potter?"
Does he mention any love for Harry Potter? No.

I think, if your a fan that wants another novel, sign it. You're showing your love.

It may be disrespectful in a sense ... I'm not signing it, but if you do I won't chew you out.

As much as I love Harry Potter, I'm not signing it. It would be stupid to make Jo undertake something as big as another Harry Potter novel when she doesn't want to.

I think, after Deathly Hallows, the most we can hope for is a charity book, like Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them and Quidditch Through the Ages...

No matter how we encourage or discourage her, it won't work. Jo's mind is set on one thing: not make any more sequels. It's not our work, all we do is read them and enjoy them. Love them. We do not tell the beloved author to write more.
