some kind of happiness is measured out in miles

Harry Potter fans, I need your opinion!

(non NP fans, sorry. I know you're sick of it.)

For the midnight showing tonight, I'm making a shirt that lists the names of everyone who died at the hand of Voldemort or his followers. I think the title is going to say something like "Gone But Not Forgotten: In memory of all those sacrificed in the struggle against Voldemort." Or something like that. (Let me know if you've got something better...)

But I'm having trouble finalizing the list. I've left off the Death Eaters (including Karkaroff, after some debate) but I'm still left with 44 names. A few of these weren't really involved in the fight at all, like the Riddle family. But if I limit it to people who actively fought against Voldemort in some way, I think I would have to leave a lot of others off, including Cedric, and I would kinda prefer for those people to be on there.

So, what do you think of this list? Is there anyone you would take off? And what should I do about the characters with either a last or first name unknown - just leave them as they are with "[last name unknown]"? Also, this list will go on the back, so what should I put on the front of the shirt? I might just put a deathly hallows symbol on there unless someone has a better idea.

AND, do you guys think it's okay for me to wear something listing everyone who dies in the last movie? I figure pretty much anyone at the midnight premiere will have read the book, but still, I would feel horrible if my shirt spoiled something for someone. Should I be worrying about this?
