Watching Sorcerer's Stone again.

Food for thought: sitting here thinking about what I now know; would Harry’s wand have chosen him had he not been a horcrux? The Phoenix in question also leant a tail feather to Voldemort’s wand, so what’s to say that the wand didn’t feel that and choose Harry because of that. Being said, considering book canon and not the movie, do you think Harry’s wand was less effective after it was repaired given that the horcrux inside him had been destroyed? At that point, he had worked with the wand for 8 years, so it knew him and the effectiveness, if it did lower, would probably be only slight, but it is a possibility.

Things my friend said while he was watching Deathly Hallows part 1 for the first time

(So as I said earlier, I aaccidentaly lost half of it.. the first part. But I remembered some of it, hope it’s alright anyways) (Also, I should tell you that we were 4 people watching, he was the only one who saw it for the first time)

i gotta say, i don’t quite get why oikawa/iwaizumi shouldn’t carry elder/rowan? i haven’t read hp in quite a while and also never really got into the wandlore of it, so maybe thats why im in the dark heh

softsun hat auf deinen Eintrag geantwortet “so. to procrastinate writing, i’ve started looking up wands for (some…”

this is the nerdiest thing i have seen in a long time and i am LIVING

i’m taking this as a compliment :’D and also as an opportunity to geek out further about wand woods below :D

elder/rowan: i’m by no means an expert in wandlore either, but the thing with elder wands is that they’re, like, REALLY rare. And REALLY weird. Remember the whole thing with Harry & Voldemort & The Elder Wand in volume… 6? 7?

So elder wands are notorious. And that’s reason #1, that (in this universe) I’m reluctant to let Oikawa have a wand that marks him out to be ~special~ (because as much as he is special, that’s due to his own hard work and not some sort of Chosen Boy narrative).

Now, this is (parts of) what JKR has to say about elder as a wand wood:

The rarest wand wood of all, and reputed to be deeply unlucky, the elder wand is trickier to master than any other. It contains powerful magic, but scorns to remain with any owner who is not the superior of his or her company; it takes a remarkable wizard to keep the elder wand for any length of time. The old superstition, ‘wand of elder, never prosper,’ has its basis in this fear of the wand, but in fact, the superstition is baseless. The truth is that only a highly unusual person will find their perfect match in elder, and on the rare occasion when such a pairing occurs, I take it as certain that the witch or wizard in question is marked out for a special destiny. An additional fact that I have unearthed during my long years of study is that the owners of elder wands almost always feel a powerful affinity with those chosen by rowan. 

When I read over this yesterday night, I lit up on scorns to remain with any owner who is not the superior of his or her company, because hell yeah, what an amazing basis for the whole Ushijima/Kageyama debacle?? B U T then I remembered that I want this to be a happy and fluffy AU. And to expose Oikawa Tooru to a wand like this does not remotely point in the direction of happy. (It DOES point in the direction of angsty with lots of suffering, though, which might be great on its own, someday!)

I’m still debating whether or not to give Iwaizumi a rowan wand in the fluffy universe as well, though:

Rowan wood has always been much-favoured for wands, because it is reputed to be more protective than any other, and in my experience renders all manner of defensive charms especially strong and difficult to break. It is commonly stated that no dark witch or wizard ever owned a rowan wand, and I cannot recall a single instance where one of my own rowan wands has gone on to do evil in the world. Rowan is most happily placed with the clear-headed and the pure-hearted, but this reputation for virtue ought not to fool anyone - these wands are the equal of any, often the better, and frequently out-perform others in duels. 

Just because I think it fits him quite well overall, and also because of the hilarity of giving this lightest and ~purest~ of wands to a Slytherin (and also think about all the virgin jokes his horrible friends would make). ((You know what, I think I’m going to do this. Much better than ash.))
