10 things that will definitely happen in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

My other post is what I want to happen. Here are things I'm pretty sure will happen:

10. Harry will take his Apparition test and pass.

9. Harry, Ron and Hermione will attend Bill's wedding.

8. Malfoy will die, or at least come to a bad end.

7. Ron and Hermione will kiss.

6. Harry will go to Godric's Hollow.

5. Harry will go to a Wizarding Cemetery.

4. Harry will find all of the remaining Horcruxes, though he'll have help doing it.

3. We will learn more about what Dumbledore has been doing all along.

2. We will learn more about Harry's parents.

1. Voldemort will die.

10 things I want to happen in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Here's a list of 10 things I'm hoping will be part of the next Harry Potter book. It's the last book, it's now or never. I'm starting to despair that all my questions will be answered (especially since quite a few of them are about Dumbledore) but here's my top 10 of things I hope will be in there:

10. We learn what Harry's parents did for a living after leaving Hogwarts, and what brought them together since Lily was so obviously not interested in James in their 5th year.

9. Neville finally comes into his own, and his memory gets better.

8. Malfoy gets what he deserves.

7. We learn more about Snape's background and childhood.

6. Ron and Hermione kiss.

5. We learn what took place at Godric's Hollow and where Harry was between then and being dropped off at the Dursley's.

4. Harry gets to read the letter Dumbledore left on the doorstep with Harry (and, of course, we get to read over his shoulder).

3. We find out a bit about how Dumbledore knows some of the things he knows -- how he knew so quickly after the attack on the Potters that Voldemort was indeed "gone", how he knew to move the Stone out of Gringott's, what started him thinking Voldemort had made a Horcrux and then what made him believe there was more than one.

2. We find out where Snape's true loyalties lie.

1. Harry beats Voldemort without having to resort to using one of the illegal curses, and without any of the following having to die: Harry, Hermione, Ron, Fred, George, Molly, Arthur, Hagrid, Neville, Luna or Ginny.

I'd love to see comments on my list so feel free to post some.
