If you had to use one, which Unforgivable Curse would you use?
Oh gosh. All of the Unforgivable Curses are simply too, well, unforgivable to use. I don't want to torture anyone but taking away their free will sounds just as bad. I can see though how, in certain situations, like when Harry used Imperius to break into Gringotts, or when he used Crucio against Bella and Amycus Carrow, that they were a bit more...forgivable. I'd never ever use Avada Kedavra though, that's for sure. I guess, when push comes to shove, I'd pick the Imperious Curse, but I'd ONLY use it to like, distract someone, or something bland like that. Never to control them to do my bidding or anything of the sort!
More on the Imperius Curse:
The Imperius Curse (Imperio) is a tool of the Dark Arts and one of the three Unforgivable Curses. It is one of the most powerful and sinister spells known to wizardkind. When cast successfully, the curse places the victim completely under the caster's control, though a person with exceptional strength of will is capable of resisting it.The fact that the curse can be defended against makes it unique amongst the Unforgivable Curses. -Source
