I ask because of the whole Petigrew issue. Sirius tells him he should have died rather than tell, but wouldn't that have had the same effect if the Fidelius charm was canceled by the secret keeper dying? Or do you think they can be set up to transfer?
Could the Fidelius charm actually work so that if the Secret Keeper dies those or that which is hidden simply remain hidden forever unless they choose to reveal themselves. I assume that the secret keeper is there to make sure someone on the outside does actually know where the person/object is so that it may be later found, otherwise why could a person not be their own secret keeper?
Anyone have any theories/canon evidence about this?
