This New Harry Potter Fan Theory Will Make You Say, "Langlock"
Do you know what happened in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows? Do you really?
We think not, because Reddit user WippitGuud has blown this story wide open. Things are not what they seem.
First things first: WippitGuud lays it all out there on the line to argue that Harry is dead. Kaput. You know, the whole avada kadavra.
The bit where he was in Kings Cross and he met Dumbledore and everything was trippy AF, then he returned to the real world? Nope. Incorrect.
Why? Well, it's elementary.
According to our friend WippitGuud:
Everyone goes by the explanation in Deathly Hallows given by Dumbledore as to why Harry didn't die at the end of the book. He says: because Voldemort took Harry's blood to recreate his body, Lily's protection kept Harry from dying. This statement does not work with the evidence of the event.
There are three (3) key reasons for this.
1. When Harry was hit by the killing curse as a baby, it rebounded and killed Voldemort, necessitating that he create a new body. This did not happen the second time.
2. When Harry was hit by the killing curse as a baby, it left a visible mark. This did not happen the second time.
3. To destroy a Horcrux, the container must be destroyed.
Alright, so if Harry didn't die, then the Horcrux wouldn't have been destroyed, so Voldemort wouldn't have been destroyed, so Harry must have died.
THAT is some TRUE DETECTIVE shit, WippitGuud. Wow.
So how did old Haz Pots come back to the realm of the living?
Harry had something of that level of power with him - master of the united Hallows: he had the stone and the cloak, and the curse was cast from the Elder Wand, which he was currently master of.
Because Harry chose to not defend himself, the Wand was not defeating Harry, so its allegiance did not change. Dumbledore even comments on it, "And that, I think, will have made all the difference." Had he tried to duel, he would've lost allegiance to the wand when he lost, and simply died.
That's right: Harry was the master of the Deathly Hallows, chose not to defend himself against the Elder Wand he was a master of, so maintained its allegiance and had the power to sacrifice himself and place the same power of the people of Hogwarts that his own mother placed over him.
We need to sit down for a bit.
