Deathly Hallows - Which one would you choose?

Post by Hannah R Thomas » Sat Jun 02, 2018 8:54 pm

The Deathly Hallows have always been an interesting topic amongst the wizarding world. Some believe they never existed; however, others believe otherwise. We already know the answer, thanks to Harry Potter himself. The question is: which one would you choose? Any particular reason why you would choose this particular Hallow?

I would take the Invisibility cloak because of the many advantages it has. One would be acting like a Demiguise. If you wish to become Magizoologist, you can use the cloak to have a particular understanding of this creature and how it likes to get around invisibly. In a way, you can have your privacy and stay up late without someone noticing.

I am terrible, but I would probably choose the resurrection stone but only if it worked properly instead of bringing back someone the way it does in The Tale of Three Brothers. I would absolutely want to bring back my brother with it so I could see him again, even if it is a little selfish.

I would choose the cloak of invisibility because who doesn't want to be invisible? It's useful, and doesn't have any drawbacks. Plus it was the object of choice from the youngest brother (the smart brother) in the fairy tale.

While I would like to say the Invisibility Cloak, I think it would be more true to say the Elder Wand.

Why is this? It's because I think the Elder wand could act as a very good alert and responsive shield.

I wouldn't need to use it as a weapon. After all, I have my Oceanspray and Cherry wood wands. :)

edit: Yes, exactly! It would be the ultimate 'shield charm' source; program it so that all that yuck would just bounce right back at the caster. :D A quick google search for 'shield charm' gets this -
Shield Charm
Normally invisible. Spells bouncing off of the shield give off their own light.
Effect
Magically blocks spells & physical entities
"You wouldn't believe how many people, even people who work at the Ministry, can't do a decent Shield Charm."
—George Weasley regarding the charm[src]
The Shield Charm (Protego) is a term applied to several varieties of charms. They create a magical barrier to deflect physical entities and spells, in order to protect a certain person or area. Conjurations may sometimes rebound directly off it back towards the caster or in other cases, may ricochet off in other directions or dissipate as soon as they hit the shield.
History
It's unknown who the inventor of the spell was and when it was invented.
In 1484 in the town of Poppleton, the tyrannical Earl of Paunchley held a jousting match. He insisted that all the nobles for miles around must come to cheer him on at the tournament and "no excuse would be acceptable" for missing the event. But young Edmund Gaddlegate fell out of a tree that day and broke his leg, and his mother put him to bed. The Earl wouldn't hear of anyone staying home, so he dragged Edmund and his mother to the castle, and said the mother had to watch while her child was tied to a horse and forced to compete in the jousting.

The other knights left the tournament "in disgust" at the idea of jousting with a small injured boy, so the Earl vowed that he himself would attack Edmund. But a witch in the crowd named Hannah Cockleford had other ideas. Fed up with the evil Earl, she cast an extremely strong Shield Charm between Edmund and the Earl, who was "squashed flat in his armour" when the Shield Charm knocked him backwards and his horse landed on him. The Earl of Paunchley did not die, but when he came-to he was under the impression that he was a donkey named Hairy Cyril.

I'd go with the invisibility cloak. It's a great tool if you use it right. I would just be careful never to risk eavesdropping: Those that do never hear anything nice about themselves as I know from personal experience: I was once on a camp where people thought I was asleep and that the walls were more soundproof than they were and so they spoke freely about me while I was awake and couldn't help hearing them unless I came out of the room to let them know I was awake. And let's just say what I heard wasn't nice. But somehow I didn't have the courage either to tell them I wasn't asleep.

So, I would make sure not to use the cloak in any place where people might be talking about me. At least if they were people where I cared about their opinion of me even in the smallest bit.
But being able to move unseen could certainly have it's advantages. Or even just hiding from people who wanted to find me when I did not wish to be found.

Oh my goodness! *groans* Not this question! I would say the Elder Wand because I seek power (I’ll admit it) and wouldn’t want to lose a duel. Would anyone?
