I'm Emma and I'm 18 from Hull in England!
This is my many fandom related blog, as well as a random ass posts blog.
Feel free to ask me anything I don't bite, not hard anyways
the funniest thing in twilight is when bella thinks that the guy she has a crush on might be a vampire so she goes home and just googles the word “vampire” it’s ridiculous but also exactly what I would do in that situation
I remember in primary school there was a girl who would sing to a tree every playtime
I wonder what she’s doing with her life now
When we was younger and used to go on long journeys in the car our favourite game was to beep the horn at random people we drove past and everyone in the car would wave with massive smiles on our faces. Some of the reactions still make me laugh now!!
That is actually a common misconception. The protection that was rendered useless once Harry left Privet Drive for good in Deathly Hallows was not Lily’s sacrifice. It was a charm put in place by Dumbledore, and it’s referred to as the Bond of Blood.
Dumbledore: “I put my trust, therefore, in your mother’s blood. I delivered you to her sister, her only remaining relative.”Harry: “She doesn’t love me. She doesn’t give a damn —”
Dumbledore: “But she took you. She may have taken you grudgingly, furiously, unwillingly, bitterly, yet still she took you, and in doing so, she sealed the charm I placed upon you. Your mother’s sacrifice made the bond of blood the strongest shield I could give you.”
Harry: “I still don’t —”
Dumbledore: “While you can still call home the place where your mother’s blood dwells, there you cannot be touched or harmed by Voldemort. He shed her blood, but it lives on in you and her sister. Her blood became your refuge. You need return there only once a year, but as long as you can still call it home, there he cannot hurt you. Your aunt knows this. I explained what I had done in the letter I left, with you, on her doorstep. She knows that allowing you houseroom may well have kept you alive for the past fifteen years.”
THAT protection, that charm, is what ran out when Harry chose to leave. Sacrificial protection (Lily’s), in the seeming context of canon, doesn’t have an expiration date. It can, however, be rendered somewhat useless, such as when Voldemort took Harry’s blood into himself to rebuild his body in Goblet of Fire. Voldemort was able to hurt Harry from that point on.
What saved Harry in the forest was a combination of a couple of things: 1.) Voldemort was not the master of the Elder Wand, Harry was. It did not recognize or respond to Voldemort properly because of this, and he only managed to kill the horcrux bit of Harry. 2.) Voldemort taking Harry’s blood in Goblet of Fire ultimately kept Harry alive while simultaneously becoming Voldemort’s downfall:
Dumbledore: “Remember what he did, in his ignorance, in his greed and cruelty…he took your blood and rebuilt his living body with it! Your blood in his veins, Harry. Lily’s protection inside both of you. He tethered you to life while he lives…He took your blood believing it would strengthen him. He took into his body a tiny part of the enchantment your mother laid upon you when she died for you. His body keeps her sacrifice alive, and while that enchantment survives, so do you, and so does Voldemort’s one last chance for himself…”
Which basically means since Voldemort did not die in the forest, and Lily’s protection still lived on in Voldemort, Harry would not die unless he made the choice to “let’s say…board a train”.
When you want to finish reading a books because it’s so good, but you also don’t want to finish it because it’s so good!!
