J.K. Rowling | Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows | 2007

My Dearest Dobby,

In spite of your death, I feel compelled to write you this letter in the hopes that it will reach you in Heaven. I say Heaven because everyone knows that all heroic House Elves end up there. And you are a hero. You protected Harry Potter with all that you had, including your life. From the very moment you met him to the moment of your death, you consistently sacrificed yourself so that others might live. Some may find your unconditional devotion to and interference in Harry Potter's life to be a bit over the top. But I know better. You are everything a free Elf ought to be.

Affectionately grateful,
Kathryn Leigh
