“And Harry, with the unerring skill of the Seeker, caught the wand in his free hand as Voldemort fell backward, arms splayed, the slit pupils of the scarlet eyes rolling upward. Tom Riddle hit the floor with a mundane finality, his body feeble and shrunken, the white hands empty, the snakelike face vacant and unknowing. Voldemort was dead.”
You see, this is how it should have been. I wish that this wasn’t just a behind-the-scene photo. I wish that it had happened like this. Exactly like in the book. Voldemort died like anyone else. And it’s amazing how in the book, J.K. Rowling actually used his name. He was humanized in death. And I wish that they had shown that, instead of showing him do an imitation of the Corpse Bride:
Because it’s really important:
Tom Riddle was humanized in death.
Beyond the fact that Voldemort fucking DISAPPEARED making NO FUCKING SENSE, the big thing that always has and continues to get me is this:
In the movie, no one saw Harry and Voldemort’s final duel.
Voldemort’s corpse scattered on the wind.
THERE IS NO HABEAS CORPUS
WHY DOES EVERYONE JUST ACCEPT THAT HARRY KILLED VOLDEMORT
HARRY AND VOLDEMORT GO OFF BY THEMSELVES TO HAVE AN INTIMATE WIZARD LIGHTNING DUEL IN WHICH HARRY DOESN’T TELL VOLDY TO TRY FOR SOME REMORSE IE ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT MOMENTS IN HARRY’S CHARACTER IN THE ENTIRE SERIES BUT ANYWAY
THEN EVERYONE SHOWS UP TO FIND HARRY HOLDING VOLDEMORTS WAND AND SAYING HE KILLED VOLDEMORT
WHILE A CORPSE IS FUCKING NOWHERE TO BE SEEN
HOW IS EVERYONE’S IMMEDIATE REACTION FUCKING NOT TO TIE HARRY UP AND MAKE SURE HE ISN’T VOLDEMORT POLYJUICED OR SOMETHING
OR HELL JUST SOME RANDOM MOOK VOLDEMORT BROUGHT WITH HIM AGAIN NO ONE SAW THE DUEL NO ONE KNOWS HOW IT WENT DOWN HE COULD HAVE EASILY DOUBLE TEAMED HARRY HAD HIS MINION POLYJUICE INTO HARRY THEN INCINERATE THE CORPSE AND WHILE FAKE HARRY DISTRACTS EVERYONE HE FLIES AROUND, HIDES SOMEWHERE AND WAITS FOR THE CELEBRATIONS TO START, BURSTS IN AND MURDERS EVERYONE
