Harry Potter MotW #40

Harry Potter Moment of the Week 

Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme hosted over at Uncorked Thoughts. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote, object from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself! Upcoming topics & how to join here.

  Most Anger Inducing Scene


Oh gosh, there are so many ways this topic could go...basically every single scene Umbridge is in qualifies.  Every time Malfoy acts like a total arse or Snape is unfair...any and all of the deaths of my favorite characters left me feeling sad of course but also angry that they had to die.  Then there's the Lestranges and their torturing habits. *rages*  but looking back, I think the most anger inducing scene for me was:

Voldemort remembering that night in Godric's Hollow

We all knew the story of course but until this point it had been simply equal parts tragic & heartbreaking.  Sure like Harry, we was felt some degree of anger that Voldemort killed Harry's parents, but that was nothing compared to the rage I felt in Deathly Hallows when Voldemort himself remembers how that night went down...We get to witness firsthand (along with Harry) Voldemort's cold determination, cruel inner dialogue, not to mention his complete and utter heartlessness as he walks up to the Potter's House, even considering killing some random kid on the street for staring at him!  Once he gets up to their house it only gets worse as his thoughts turn to taunts at James and Lily, complete detachment towards them as people and honest enjoyment at taking innocent lives and destroying a  family. Gah! I seriously can not explain my hatred for Voldemort as a character here, more than all the vile things he did befor!.  I mean it was riveting to read of course, and in some way we needed to know exactly what had gone down...but man it was brutal. Yes it breaks my heart into a million pieces, but it also makes my blood boil. 

PS - I was going to add quotes to go along with the scene but I started tearing up and raging so that idea was scrapped >.<  lol

  1. I'm not looking forward to that scene! I'm actually in the middle of re-watching all the movies and we just finished the fourth, and the darker stuff is going to be starting soon. I haven't actually read the last book, but at some point soon I'm going to be reading them all.

  2. Oh good, the feeling he was right, and the enjoyment of the moment were absolutely the worst! I shuddered about this so much, I didn't even want to read on, find out more. Absolutely terrible!

  3. You can tell that you picked a good moment when it makes you too mad to even post the quotes from it. I have to agree that it was sooo tough to read that and see the complete evil that he encompasses. Great choice! Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

  4. That did make such a tough read :( can't believe I didn't even think about it. Cuddles for the tears though! Everything to do with Voldemort was frustrating. Rowling created the perfect villain though! xxx

  5. Voldemort's complete lack of . . . humanity is just repulsive. That it didn't phase him in the least to set out to kill a whole family, including a baby, always makes me shiver.

  6. With so many evil characters I can remember getting quite mad often throughout the series!!

  7. I'm always so impressed with your answers, Micheline! My mind always goes to the obvious answer to these question (Umbridge immediately comes to mind at "most anger-inducing moment"), but I like how you clearly think about it more in depth and then are able to come up with the ultimate best answer: YES, that scene was definitely the most rage-inducing!!
