Another thing that pisses me off about Dorkly. They find minor, inconsequential (and probably easy to explain in universe) plot-holes, they stretch'em out like a black man ******* an Asian woman, and then call themselves clever.

Any fantasy story with such a complex universe is. You just gotta accept them, and enjoy the story. Unless it is something that completely ruins the story, but I don't think this is. The Eagles solution from Lord of the Rings Despite that fact that it is explainable is a much bigger plot hole, yet it doesn't ruin the story.

Yes, but when a series simply brings up "bonuses" that are available only to the protagonists for some unexplained reason it becomes hard to enjoy. Not to mention the entire premise of the Harry Potter series is flawed in that Voldemort doesn't just kill him at the beginning. Sure he couldn't use magic to kill Harry, but why not stab him, shoot him, drown him or even just capture him and let him starve? It's not like he was protected at the time, and even during his life prior to Hogwarts. How do you explain that?

Voldermort tried to kill Harry, the spell rebounded and killed Voldemort. But because of his Horocruxes, Voldermort didn't actually die, and Harry became another Horocrux. Up until the end of the fourth book, Voldy was too weak to chase after Harry, and most of the followers dispatched and pretended to not be associated with him after his downfall, until he called them back after his revival. And since Harry was technically a Horocrux, he couldn't be killed by ordinary means. Plus, he was left with the Dursleys to be away from the magical world, so it wasn't common knowledge where he was. Plus, his neighbor was there to keep watch of him. And there were protective spells placed on the house that expired when he turned 17. And Voldemort was the only one who had a reason to kill Harry, so up until the fifth book that's a moot point.

Time travel magic is very dangerous and complex, it wasn't like any of the characters could do it by themselves. Plus, the time travel in that book is so that if you do something while time traveling, it means it's already happened and you didn't change anything. Stun spells were quite often used, though Harry did prefer disarming to stunning, but that was supposed to exemplify his mercy.
Dementors are creatures that feed off of misery, fear, and souls. They were confined to Azkaban by the ministry, which they were okay with because there was plenty to feed off of there. They brought them to Hogwarts to "protect" the students from Black in the 3rd book, but they are not exactly tamed beasts so they weren't exactly reluctant to attack students, they only refrained because the ministry was in charge of them. When Voldy took over the ministry, then the dementors were free to do as they pleased so that's why they were everywhere at the end.
It explains everything in the books, important stuff is left out of the movies but that's what movies based on books do. There's some flaws, it's not perfect, but most stuff is explained.

As for the last part, I have no idea. I've never read the books (I prefer high-fantasy, not alternate-world fantasy), so I can't really say...

As for the first part, I am assuming you're talking about the magic system, yes?

I only read the first book and I didn't like it at all, so must of my knowledge is based off the movies. Nonetheless I distictly remember a time-travel watch thing and a wide range of spells that were known (eg. stun spell) but never used. Also I never really got the whole dementors thing - why were they randomly sucking the life out of people?

I mean I could seriously go for hours on this topic, but within the entire magic system the whole series just doesn't make sense. The actions of characters within this fantasy world are illogical and therefore hard to appreciate. I'm not even talking about making optimum choices, but simply things any rational individual would be able to come up with.

Voldemort had no physical body after he attempted to kill harry as a body so he could not stab or drown or shoot or anything. As for the dementors they were gaurds of the azkaban prison and they became under the control of Lord Voldemort hence why they started sucking souls out of people again. The time turner was almost impossible for any wizard to get there hands on since they were locked away in the ministry of magic and they were all destroyed when Harry went into the Ministry for the Prophecy.

One of my favorite writers, Brandon Sanderson, wrote an essay about magic systems in fantasy. He talks about Hard magic (a system with a lot of rules) and soft magic (an unexplained system). One of the things he talks about is Harry Potter and how it's kinda a hybrid. He had no problem with it, but the way he explains it, I can see why people have problems with the HP magic system.

It's an interesting essay, if you're interested.

Thanks for the info and for understanding my argument. I've got to say that just by skim reading that link I found one of the most spot on explanations of the HP magic system:

"[J.K.Rowling] adds new rules as she adds books, expanding the system, sometimes running into contradictions and conveniently forgetting abilities the characters had in previous novels."

It actually is explainable, but I'm not going to tl;dr about it.

The counter argument to this, or at least one of several ones (this is the short one), is that using historically valuable artifacts will actually ensure a greater longevity. Make a random-ass tree or rock one, and it might get chopped down or blown up to make a new highway. Make the Mona Lisa one or something, though, and it's under glass in a museum with guards watching it for you.

Historically relevant objects aren't as likely to be destroyed, and more likely to survive.

Also, it wasn't obvious what they were. The whole point of Dumbledore and Harry using the pensive to look through memories in Half Blood Prince was to confirm that Voldemort used Horcruxes, and learn enough about his personality and psyche to make accurate guesses as to what he used. If it was "obvious" where he had put them, and that he'd made Horcruxes in the first place, then Dumbledore would have hunted them down long before then, and the whole subplot with Slughorn would have been completely pointless.

And Nagini wasn't a bad investment. He got a ******* monster out of the deal, and he's obviously not adverse to spending a piece of his soul if it might net him an advantage. He made the diary, remember? That was just an experiment to see if he COULD do it. There's no reason he wouldn't have been willing to put a piece in his pet snake. It made her an intelligent, powerful magical serpent monster that would obey him without question. To Voldemort, who has no use for his own soul beyond using it to secure his immortality, that's more than a worthwhile trade.

And the fanfiction community for Harry Potter beat Dorkley to the "drop it in the ocean" idea by about a decade. The counterargument for that would be, one, Voldemort would never willingly lose track of one in the name of security, and two, it's not safe for the long haul anyway. Tectonic activity would eventually destroy it.

big point, horcruxes are indestructible, only to the strongest of things like basilisk blood or feiry fire (the thing goyle killed himself with). the reason the sword killed nagini was because it was covered in the basilisks blood when harry shanked it like a ************ (sword absorbs that which makes it stronger, and basilisk blood is ******* OP)
Voldemort just had such an ego about himself only certain items could be worthy of having his soul within them, hence they had to be something important/regal. and he had to know where they are, they are part of him after all.

With nagini, they showed it in the grotto scene but more so in the books; but pretty much nagini is a ******* tank, spell after spell was shot at her and she did not give a ****, they ******* bounced off her

Another argument against why it would be a good idea, while I am not well versed in the Harry Potter universe (I've only seen the movies), if I were writing them, I'd make it so to be able to do something like that, the object would have to have some kind of meaning to you.

And that last part is another reason to add to my list of "Why Dorkly is ****". Those ******* thought they were so smart when they figured out the whole "Use the eagles to get to Mordor" concept that people figured out when it was still only a book. Plus it's wrong for many different reasons, but I won't get into that.

They even explained it in the book, because Harry asked it, Voldemort was to prideful to put his soul into just any common object. It would have to be something special.
Nagini became his pet after his downfall, and he used it's venom to make the potion that eventually healed him enough to be able to return.

I believe that the horcruxes had to have a value for you to be easier to make them. Diary stores part of your soul as you write you feeling. Naginy was his pet others was heirlooms of his ancestor (Slitherin) or he really wanted them what made them valuable for him. Hatred is also strong feeling he had for Harry. I don't think he would be able to make horcrux out of grain of sand even if he was the strongest wizard.

I think making a stone or a grain of sand would have no use, I mean he needs somebody to own the horcrux to influence him and gain power (like the diary and Ginny) so having a piece of soul stuck in the middle of a desert would not be of much use

I might be wrong, just my thoughts on that

You can't just kill a horcrux with magic. Didn't neville use Godric Gryffindor's sword with poisen from the basilisk on it? It's been some years since I read the books, but I'm pretty sure that's how it went down.

No, because the Horcrux has to be destroyed beyond repair. Had the venom killed Harry, the Horcrux would have been destroyed. But as he was cured with Phoenix Tears, Horcrux is saved.

If you watched the movie, Nagini deflected the magic hits with his fangs. (If I remember rightly.) The horcruxes must also be able to find and they must bear purpose to the person who is performing the spell on it.

Not really. It's made clear that Harry is a horcrux and that he needs to die in order for it to be destroyed. That would mean Harry is immortal to everything except things that destroy horcruxes, and he's not. He eventually gets killed (eh, sort of) by the Avada Kedavra spell, which isn't one of the things that is listed as being able to destroy horcruxes.

tl;dr: Rowling is great at writing books, but horrible at creating a logically consistent fantasy world.
