The Noble and Most Ancient House of Black

FIRST VOICE // Andromeda
Waiting lies heavy on my lids.  It lies like sleep,Like a big sea.  Far off, far off, I feel the first wave tugIts cargo of agony toward me, inescapable, tidal.And I, a shell, echoing on this white beachFace the voices that overwhelm, the terrible element.What did my fingers do before they held him?What did my heart do, with its love?I have never seen a thing so clear.
SECOND VOICE // Bellatrix
This is a disease I carry home, this is a death.Again, this is a death.  Is it the air,The particles of destruction I suck up?  Am I a pulseThat wanes and wanes, facing the cold angel?Is this my lover then?  This death, this death?Is this the one sin then, this old dead love of death?I am accused.  I dream of massacres.I am a garden of black and red agonies.  I drink them,Hating myself, hating and fearing.  And now the world conceivesIts end and runs toward it, arms held out in love.It is a love of death that sickens everything.A dead sun stains the newsprint.  It is red.I lose life after life.  The dark earth drinks them.
THIRD VOICE // Narcissa
The face in the pool was beautiful, but not mine—It had a consequential look, like everything else,And all I could see was dangers:  doves and words,Stars and showers of gold—conceptions, conceptions!I remember a white, cold wing.There is a snake in swans.He glided by; his eye had a black meaning.I saw the world in it—small, mean and black,Every little word hooked to every little word, and act to act.

FIRST VOICE // Andromeda

Waiting lies heavy on my lids.  It lies like sleep,
Like a big sea.  Far off, far off, I feel the first wave tug
Its cargo of agony toward me, inescapable, tidal.
And I, a shell, echoing on this white beach
Face the voices that overwhelm, the terrible element.

What did my fingers do before they held him?
What did my heart do, with its love?
I have never seen a thing so clear.

SECOND VOICE // Bellatrix

This is a disease I carry home, this is a death.
Again, this is a death.  Is it the air,
The particles of destruction I suck up?  Am I a pulse
That wanes and wanes, facing the cold angel?
Is this my lover then?  This death, this death?
Is this the one sin then, this old dead love of death?

I am accused.  I dream of massacres.
I am a garden of black and red agonies.  I drink them,
Hating myself, hating and fearing.  And now the world conceives
Its end and runs toward it, arms held out in love.
It is a love of death that sickens everything.
A dead sun stains the newsprint.  It is red.
I lose life after life.  The dark earth drinks them.

THIRD VOICE // Narcissa

The face in the pool was beautiful, but not mine—
It had a consequential look, like everything else,
And all I could see was dangers:  doves and words,
Stars and showers of gold—conceptions, conceptions!
I remember a white, cold wing.

There is a snake in swans.
He glided by; his eye had a black meaning.
I saw the world in it—small, mean and black,
Every little word hooked to every little word, and act to act.

What prompted people to start referring to Voldemort as You-Know-Who and He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named?

  • JKR:  It happens many times in history...Having a taboo on a name is quite common in certain civilizations. In Africa there are tribes where the name is never used. Your name is a sacred part of yourself and you are referred to as the son of so-and-so, the brother of so-and-so, and you're given these pseudonyms, because your name is something that can be used magically against you if it's known. It's like a part of your soul. That's a powerful taboo in many cultures and across many folklores. On a more prosaic note, in the 1950s in London, there were a pair of gangsters called the Kray Twins. The story goes that people didn't speak the name Kray. You just didn't mention it. You didn't talk about them, because retribution was so brutal and bloody. I think this is an impressive demonstration of strength - that you can convince someone not to use your name. Impressive in the sense that demonstrates how deep the level of fear is that you can inspire. It's not something to be admired.

Good Morning Voldemort [a parody of Hairspray’s Good Morning Baltimore]

Oh, you split your soul,
but I’ll make you whole
and find all the pieces and you will see
that I’ll be your Horcrux,
so stick your soul inside of me!

I would build a bridge to the other side
Just so I could spend a little time with you
There would be no ifs or compromise
Sirius, I’m seriously missing you
