I know what happens, but all I'm saying is know one shoots a disarming charm when they're shot by a killing curse. I know harry wouldn't be killed, since the elder wand could not harm its master, but just shooting a disarming charm is a bit weird. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Hayden Presley" <hdpres...@hotmail.com>

Hi Muhammed,
Ok...I'd prefer taking this off list, so message me so I can explain why
that wasn't actually what happened.

Best Regards,
Hayden

I never liked the end of the seventh book. I reckon Harry should have taken
that wand before and when he killed Voldemort, bury it. I wouldn't want a
weapon like that for the rest of my life, but Harry and Voldemort should
have had a real battle. I mean, who defeats a dark wizard with an
expelliarmus charm? Kind of childish in my opinion.

Hi Jim.

I always got the idea that it would be rather like having any custom item
made for you, whether it's a sword, a baseball bat, a coat or whatever.

Others can use it relatively well, but because it is individually taylored

with your own personal weight, balance or build in mind, it is unlikely to

sute others as well as it sutes you.

indeed, at the end of the 7th book, when voldemort has the unbeatable
wand, it is not the case that it doesn't work at all, sinse we see him
doing lots of magic with it (including killing snape and setting Nevil on
fire), rather it is that the wand doesn't seem to be anything special.

voldemort can use it, but only in the hands of it's true owner, would it
actually be the legendary wand it appears.

As to the killing curse, well in the harry potter universe, it seems that
the more powerful spells such as the patronus chalm require not just
correct words and gestures, but the will and intention of the user.

When Harry attempts the cruciatus curse on belatrix lestrange after she
kills sirius black in Order of the Phenix, it fails to actually cause her
any serious pain sinse as she says, the wielder has to have a real desire
to hurt another person and something of an enjoyment.

harry's rage at his Godfathers' death, while justified, wouldn't actually
be enough for him to perform the curse, sinse he did not have the sadistic

streak necessary.

thus, I imagine the killing curse works in a very similar way, that the
person performing it has to have a real desire to end the life of another.

on this basis, it wouldn't be the wand, but the intention of the wizard
using it, ---- rather the way that to kill someone with a sword you
wouldn't need a specifically made sword that was right for you, but you
would need the intention to actually perform the killing thrust with it.

This is I presume why the unforgivable curses are deemed as so bad, not
just because they are dangerous weapons, but because of the kind of mind
that needs to be behind them.

equally this says how serious it is when the ministry authorize auras to
use the curses on suspected criminals.

Of course, all this is very much going off into the misty marshes of
speculation, though hopefully with at least some basis from the books.


Beware the grue!

Dark.

Hi Dark,

Oh yeah, thanks.  But strange that a wand picks the person, but others
can use it even for such serious spells as the avada kedavra spell.
