There's no better way to celebrate J.K. Rowling's proudest creation, Harry Potter, than by crying . . . right? Over the course of Rowling's magical series, fans of the books and films have been brought to tears more times than we can count. While the many character deaths are always devastating, there are also plenty of nondeath plot points that are heartbreakingly tragic.

We decided to round up a series of sad moments for a cathartic look back at the series. Pour yourself a butterbeer, say "Accio tissues," and embrace the flood of tears that is about to hit you.
