The last Horcrux

The other day I came across this comic and it got me thinking.

Here’s the story of the last Horcrux:

In the last days before the battle of Hogwarts, Voldemort decided that he must survive. To this end he created a last Horcrux, one that no one could ever find. Unlike his others, he used and ordinary grain of sand.

This last Horcrux was tossed into the deepest ocean. Oneits way into the deepest parts of the ocean, a deep water fish mistook it for food and chased it down. It swallowed the grain of sand and proceeded to swim into a magical tear between worlds.

The tear led into a lake. Being a deep water fish, the poor fish was completely blinded by the light in this little lake. It was quickly caught by a fisherman, who gutted it and brought it home. The fish’s guts however were left on the beach to decompose.

There the grain stayed for a few years until a jewellers apprentice came looking for sand to temper jewellery. The sand on this beach was perfect. He collected a large sack of sand including the grain which was a Horcrux.

The sand was brought to a land called Erigion and was to be used in the forging of magical rings by the Lord of Gifts himself Annatar.

With Annatar’s help, the Elves of Erigion forged Seven rings for the Dwarf-Lords, and nine rings for the Mortal Men. The lord of Erigion, Celebrimbor, didn’t trust Annatar and under the guise of perfecting the art of ring forging, he created another three while Annatar watched.

Annatar was actually an evil lord called Sauron who had hopes to dominate all of Middle-earth. His corrupting touch had infused the first seven and nine with a little of his own power but since he hadn’t touched the three they had been spared.

As Annatar, Sauron, watched the forging of the three elven rings of power, his senses pulled him towards the sand. As he probed the sand with his power he realised that some poor human wizard had bound a piece of his soul to a grain of sand.

At first, this made the dark lord laugh, but then it gave him an idea. Having completed teaching Celebrimbor and the Elvin smiths how to create magical rings, he departed to Mordor, where he had made his home and empire.

Once there, he forged another ring with the sand in the fires of Orodruin, later to be called Mount Doom. There in his secret forge, Sammath Naur, he used the sand one last time. He followed the example of the human wizard and split his soul into the ring, and giving it the ability to control the others.

The gold was soft and when it was placed in the sand to temper it, a grain of sand was forced deep into its core. Trapping the last remnants of Voldemort’s soul, inside the ring.

We all know what happened to that ring and how the last Horcrux was destroyed.

Late in the night, Gollum, Bilbo, and Frodo could sometimes hear the cries of Voldemort’s soul from the ring. It’s probably better we don’t know what horrors Sauron inflicted on him.

Fawkes

We asked Fawkes the phoenix (from Harry Potter) to do almost the impossible – hold the TARDIS while holding the wing of her very heavy, incredible costume. If she did not win the masquerade, I would be VERY surprised.

Tom Felton

By far my most exciting, and yet disappointing pictures. I was SO ridiculously excited to meet Tom Felton, and I asked if I could get a picture of him holding my TARDIS. He said he couldn’t hold it, but I could put it in front of him and take a picture. And then he picked it up. “This is so cool” he said. “Isn’t this cool?” showing it to his PA. “You did a great job with this” he said to me. All the while I was frantically trying to get a good picture and stop freaking out. He even stopped to pose, and my camera wouldn’t cooperate! 🙁 He was so nice about it. I have a new-found love for Tom Felton. He is a super nice guy!

About Time Movie Review

MV5BMTA1ODUzMDA3NzFeQTJeQWpwZ15BbWU3MDgxMTYxNTk@__V1__SX640_SY1013_
Trailer

I was offered two free tickets to an advanced showing of About Time. It officially comes out on November first. It is a Romantic Comedy with a twist. The main character can travel back in time.

To truly enjoy the movie, you have to keep in mind that it is a Romantic Comedy and not a time travel movie. I kept expecting his jumps back to have disastrous and unfixable repercussions. They never happened. Yes there were a few “Oh Crap” moments but the main character seems to have the ability to reset the timeline without any problems.

At its core this movie isn’t about time, it’s about family and love. It beautifully sidesteps any moral questions by having the main character be completely sweet and upstanding. He doesn’t use his power to make the perfect date or to learn everything about the girl in order to seduce her. He meets her and they fall for each other without any use of time travel.

The strength of the movie is in its characters. They are all unique, memorable, lovable, and sweet. From the quirky father, the flower child sister, the grouchy playwright, all the way to the nutty uncle; each character is wonderfully played and written.

The movie is sappy and a little heavy handed in the end but that doesn’t take away from its constant laughs and good time.

Is this the greatest movie ever made? Probably not but it was a lot of fun and easily one of my favourite movies of the year. Possible of all time.

If you liked Love Actually, Notting Hill, Four Weddings and a Funeral, or enjoy funny love stories… Go see it.

4.5/5

Snow!

In honour of the snow that is falling (and hopefully staying) on the ground today, my picture is of the Gryffindor snowman made in Hogsmeade. I have to say, it felt incredibly weird to be SO hot in Florida, but to be surrounded by snow in Hogsmeade.

I also have an announcement to make! This Friday, I will be cutting my prices in my store www.etsy.com/shop/JenEricDesigns by 25%, in honour of Black Friday. I may keep the prices cut until Cyber Monday, but that depends on many factors.
Tell all your friends! Black Friday sale 25% off!!!
