Okay, I had this major realization reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows last night. Harry, Voldemort and Snape represent the Three Brothers from The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

[ I ] Voldemort being the one who wanted the wand to defeat anyone that could bring death to him. [ I ]

[ O ] Snape being the one who wanted to rejoin his long lost love. [ O ]

 [ ∆ ] And Harry being the one who greeted death as his friend. [ ∆ ]

So I’ve only read Deathly Hallows like three or four times now, but it’s been awhile. So my mind promptly exploded. There are of course numerous things that the three have in common as well.

Don’t we love literature? And don’t we love Harry Potter? And J. K. Rowling?
