I wonder who is going to replace Jenna Coleman since she’s not returning to Doctor Who after this series.
A slim white female in her 20s whose casting is based mostly on how attractive Steven Moffat finds her. Next question.
Anonymous said: If Lily's protection stopped when Harry left Privet Drive, how come it saved him again when Voldemort tried to kill him in the forest?
That is actually a common misconception. The protection that was rendered useless once Harry left Privet Drive for good in Deathly Hallows was not Lily’s sacrifice. It was a charm placed on the Dursleys house by Dumbledore, and it’s referred to as the Bond of Blood.
Dumbledore: “I put my trust, therefore, in your mother’s blood. I delivered you to her sister, her only remaining relative.”Harry: “She doesn’t love me. She doesn’t give a damn —”
Dumbledore: “But she took you. She may have taken you grudgingly, furiously, unwillingly, bitterly, yet still she took you, and in doing so, she sealed the charm I placed upon you. Your mother’s sacrifice made the bond of blood the strongest shield I could give you.”
Harry: “I still don’t —”
Dumbledore: “While you can still call home the place where your mother’s blood dwells, there you cannot be touched or harmed by Voldemort. He shed her blood, but it lives on in you and her sister. Her blood became your refuge. You need return there only once a year, but as long as you can still call it home, there he cannot hurt you. Your aunt knows this. I explained what I had done in the letter I left, with you, on her doorstep. She knows that allowing you houseroom may well have kept you alive for the past fifteen years.”
THAT protection, that charm, is what ran out when Harry chose to leave. Sacrificial protection (Lily’s), in the seeming context of canon, doesn’t have an expiration date. It can, however, be rendered somewhat useless, such as when Voldemort took Harry’s blood into himself to rebuild his body in Goblet of Fire. Voldemort was able to hurt Harry from that point on.
As far as why Harry didn’t die in the forest, it was a combination of a couple of things: 1.) Voldemort was not the master of the Elder Wand, Harry was. It did not recognize or respond to Voldemort properly because of this, and he only managed to kill the horcrux bit of Harry. 2.) Voldemort taking Harry’s blood in Goblet of Fire ultimately kept Harry alive while simultaneously becoming Voldemort’s downfall:
Dumbledore: “Remember what he did, in his ignorance, in his greed and cruelty…he took your blood and rebuilt his living body with it! Your blood in his veins, Harry. Lily’s protection inside both of you. He tethered you to life while he lives…He took your blood believing it would strengthen him. He took into his body a tiny part of the enchantment your mother laid upon you when she died for you. His body keeps her sacrifice alive, and while that enchantment survives, so do you, and so does Voldemort’s one last chance for himself…”
Which basically means since Voldemort did not die in the forest, and Lily’s protection still lived on in Voldemort, Harry would not die unless he made the choice to “let’s say…board a train”.
