Harry Potter [Jul. 26th, 2007|02:27 pm]
Listen in, listen Ian!
I finished it at about one o'clock this morning.



In the bit in the Forbidden Forest at the end, what actually happened the
first time Voldemort tried to kill Harry with the Elder Wand? Not all that
King's X station guff, but why was Harry apparently not a Horcrux any more?
Why could Voldemort suddenly die even though he was alive? Was it something
to do with that baby? In fact, what was that baby? Explain the finer plot
details of this children's book to me please.

I'm going to have to go back and re-read all the earlier ones now so that I
can pick up on the bits that didn't appear to be significant at the time.

what she said. i think during the first encounter, Voldemort killed the bit of his soul that was inside Harry. Harry lived either a) because the Elder Wand didn't want to kill him or b) because Voldemort had Harry's blood in him (not sure exactly how that works, but clearly it's important for some reason, because Dumbledore goes on about it).

The shriveled baby was some bit of V.

When Neville killed the snake, that meant the last bit of V's soul outside his body was gone, so that the final killing curse (that he cast) killed the last bit of his own soul.

Pretty much. Harry lived, I think, because the wand Voldemort had was the Elder Wand, but he wasn't the master of it. Harry was the master of it because he'd defeated Draco, and Draco was its master because he'd disarmed Dumbledore. So when V tried to use it against its true master it rebounded back at him. I think.

Vollers had Harry's blood in him after the big scene in Book 4 when he used his blood in his resurrection ceremony. I think.

Nothing. They're both fictional characters innit, and there's no such thing as an Elder Wand.

Not all that King's X station guff, but why was Harry apparently not a Horcrux any more?

He'd decided to finally come out of the closet, the Horcruxes don't like gays.

Why could Voldemort suddenly die even though he was alive?

Inconsistent plot. Not surprising, since the entire Potter concept is GAY.

Was it something to do with that baby? In fact, what was that baby?

That depends. Was the baby gay?

Explain the finer plot details of this children's book to me please.

A load of crap characters do crap stuff that people really shouldn't care about, but for some reason, millions of fules do care. GAY GAY GAY.

Sorry to piss on your parade, but I find the whole HP concept laughable.

Every time I read "Middlemarch is the first book written for truly grown-up people" it makes me want to burn it on a big bonfire made of Archers scripts and dance around eating fizzy cola bottles and drinking chocolate milk.

You will delight many fans by telling them that the characters are gay.

It was to do with the fact that Harry was prepared to die. Lily's love protected Harry and destroyed Voldemort and J. Ro copped out by getting Dumbledore to say the guff about 'This is magic no one understands and secretly a lady just made this all up' Oh well done then.

Harrys Mum sacrificing herself infront of Voldemorts killing curse that was meant for Harry created a protection of some description that lives in Harrys blood. So even though Voldemort killed Harry, as he had Harrys blood he kept the sacrafice protection thing alive, so he couldn't *really* kill Harry. He could only kill the part of his soul that was attached to Harrys (the child), enabling Harry to have a brief dream chat with Dumbledore and then return to the real world. I think.

In the final battle, Harry was using Malfoys wand, wasn't he, stolen from the scene in their house? So the Elder Wand recognised it's own masters other wand and made the killing curse fire back on Voldemort (defeating him, meaning that Harry had won the Elder Wand in a duel and become it's master, presumably)? Or am I just over complicating matters, there?

this is mongrel, btw.
