Let’s Talk… Spells and Death

Over the past few years, J.K. Rowling has made statements that are TERF, or against the trans community (especially towards male-to-female). These statements are completely against the thoughts and ideas of the creator of this blog. I have been and always will be an ally for any member of the LGBTQIA+ community. You exist, and you are valid. If you are struggling and need to talk to a counselor, there are many resources available at thetrevorproject.org.

When we first see spells after death, we are introduced to Sirius’ family. His mother, and I believe other ancestors as well, used a permanent binding spell that attaches a picture frame to a wall so that you can never remove it. Maybe this spell is different considering there is a “permanent” aspect, but shouldn’t the spell have not been binding following her death?

One of the reasons I ask is because at the end of the Half-Blood Prince, Harry knows that Dumbledore is dead by the fact that the spell he was under breaks. So is it just because it was a temporary spell or is it because it is against a living human? Does that mean any Imperius or Confund curses would break upon the spellcaster’s death? These are late night thoughts with Elizabeth, I hope you enjoyed.

If you guys have any thoughts or ideas, feel free to leave a comment, find me on the social medias at @elizabooksblog, or email me at elizabethslick@elizabethsbookstore.blog. And as always, I’ll see you all in the next book!
