"why do you want to take a picture of that store" - my mom
what do you mean one selfie is enough
1 + 2 are current me cause my flatmate did my hair fancy
3 + 4 are like a week old which i had in my drafts because i looked nice that day
i had a crush on this guy and i decided to pull a Pavlov on him by offering him whenever i saw him this brand of candy he seemed to really like and after a while whenever he saw me he got excited for a second then you could see his expression shift to wondering the why the hell was he so happy to see me and i swear it was the evilest thing but also the most hilarious i made a guy like me by conditioning him into associating me to a candy he liked
THIS MAKES ME VERY VER YVERY VERY VERY VERY VERY HAPPY
I live in a conservative/unfunny town, so this type of thing is almost unheard of
When I used to think about Voldemort’s horcruxes I imagined a soul divided in equal portions residing in the different horcruxes and Voldemort himself. I realised that this can’t be true in The Half-Blood Prince Slughorn describes making a horcrux as splitting ones soul in two. This means that when Riddle made his Diary into a horcrux he split his soul in half and physically removed one half from his body and placed it in the diary. This means that he only had half of his soul left when he made his next horcrux, Marvolo’s ring. This half would have been split in half leaving only a quarter in Voldemort’s body. This goes on and on the amount of soul remaining in Voldemort halving each time he makes a horcrux until he had only 1/128 or 0.78125% left in his body. As shown in the graph above. So next time you wonder why Voldemort could have done some of things he did, remember how little human he had left in him. I don’t know about you but I think that this is crazy.
Come on guys, I didn’t do maths for 14 notes
And that potency varies hugely depending on the Horcrux. The diary? It was basically a person. Tom was able to befriend and carefully manipulate Ginny; it was almost enough for him to return outright. The ring? We don’t know about its personality, since Dumbledore was the one to use it, but its curse was strong enough to ultimately kill him. The locket? Strong enough to hurt the trio, but possessing little consciousness of its own. But the cup and the diadem? Objects. No problem.
Harry had his own soul as well as that little fragment of Voldemort; presumably so did Nagini, although we don’t know how animal souls work in HP. So they’re still complete individuals - they just have a little something extra.
But Voldemort himself was basically soulless.
