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
So are you telling me that Harry had more Voldemort than Voldemort had Voldemort?
Which is why it changed Ginny so much after the diary incident.
reblogging this because it has a shitload of notes and i really can’t understand how that happened BUT YEAH
HOLY FUCK THIS IS MY FAVORITE THING ON TUMBLR
IT’S FUCKING BACK! THIS THING! I’M ALL THE TIME TRYING TO SHOW THIS TO PEOPLE WHEN THAT DAMN SONG COMES ON. AND I CAN NEVER FIND IT. BECAUSE I TUMBL TOO MUCH.

my favourite part from book 3 has to be when hermionie is done with divination
its just so funny omg professor trelawney is like HERMIONIE YOURE REALLY SHITTY AT THIS and hermionie just stares at her for a moment before getting up and basically shouting “IM DONE IM 100% DONE IM GONE IM LEAVING” and she kicks open the door and just leaves the classroom and doesnt return ever again
OH MY GOSD
I’M FUCKING CRYING
Always read the books. This is why they are so much better than the films.
He was meant to have a human death
to show he was just human
a twisted human
Above all my biggest complaint with that film. If you don’t understand, filmmakers, why Harry Potter needs to see a body to know Voldemort is dead, then you don’t understand fucking Harry Potter.

oliver looks like me trying to do algebra
he looks like me trying to do any kind of maths
it looks like he turned his ear into a grape and is horrified
