'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

Harry Potter A-Z

A Saturday post I have been doing to spread the Harry Potter love and to take us all on a trip down memory lane :). I've been a little lazy in the last couple of weeks - been a bit busy and just haven't felt like spending any more time than was absolutely necessary on the computer meaning I'm a little behind on these posts!

U is for The Unbreakable Vow
'An Unbreakable Vow is a magical spell of unknown incantation, in which one witch or wizard makes an oath to another. If either of the two break their terms, they die. The Vow is cast by having two parties kneeling opposite each other and clasping right hands. A third must hold their wand, standing quite close to the pair holding hands, and place the tip of their wand onto the linked hands, as Bonder. Then, the first will ask a certain number of vows of the other, with the second accepting those terms; it is unknown what happens if he or she declines. Each time a term is accepted a thin stream of fire will be emitted from the Bonder's wand, weaving around the hands of the pair taking the vows.'

Snape: "You will need your wand, Bellatrix, and you will need to move a little closer."
Narcissa: "Will you, Severus, watch over my son, Draco, as he attempts to fulfill the Dark Lord's wishes?"
Snape: "I will."
Narcissa: "And will you, to the best of your ability, protect him from harm?"
Snape: "I will."
Narcissa: "And should it prove necessary... if it seems Draco will fail... will you carry out the deed that the Dark Lord has ordered Draco to perform?"
Snape: "I will."

  1. This is such a cool spell! So ingenious and so serious. I loved reading about it, how it was performed, how it's supposed to be carried out. It was really interesting. :)
