When I used to think about Voldemort’s horcruxes I imagined a soul divided in equal portions residing in the different horcruxes and Voldemort himself. I realised that this can’t be true in The Half-Blood Prince Slughorn describes making a horcrux as splitting ones soul in two. This means that when Riddle made his Diary into a horcrux he split his soul in half and physically removed one half from his body and placed it in the diary. This means that he only had half of his soul left when he made his next horcrux, Marvolo’s ring. This half would have been split in half leaving only a quarter in Voldemort’s body. This goes on and on the amount of soul remaining in Voldemort halving each time he makes a horcrux until he had only 1/128 or 0.78125% left in his body. As shown in the graph above. So next time you wonder why Voldemort could have done some of things he did, remember how little human he had left in him. I don’t know about you but I think that this is crazy.
Come on guys, I didn’t do maths for 14 notes
So are you telling me that Harry had more Voldemort than Voldemort had Voldemort?
Whatever your reason for wanting, or needing, a creepy detached set of lips to accompany you to bed at night, it’s comforting to know that the product for you is ready and waiting as a new pillow with a built-in mouth is unveiled.
The Make-Out Practice Pillow is the brainchild of Emily King, a Florida-based designer who created the quirky furnishing to offer a solution to the inexperienced kisser.

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:
Gemini: This week is going to be about talking, about the golden sound of your own voice, about making noise, about sharing noise with other people. Tell jokes, tell stories, tell secrets. Let words build up inside of you and let them spill back out, let words build houses, let them build ladders, let them build rafts you can float right away on. Spend your days with people good at listening to you, spend your evenings reading books by people who will show you their entire soul.
Today’s image was made specially for Madame Clairevoyant by Jen May.
As a Gemini, I think I can do this.
