Not Your Fault by C2ii Not Your Fault by C2ii
From Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality Time Pressure Part 2

If you did not cringe reading this part then you are a liar
If you didn't read HPMOR you should stop what you're doing and proceed to google it
If this is your first time hearing about HPMOR then you live under a rock...that and you've just been massively spoiled ^_^
(or you can go to fanfiction! Or hell you can watch the first 40 some chapters on youtube! Actually I suggest reading it and then watching it! its double the fun )

"One of my classmates gets bitten by a horrible monster, and as I scrabble frantically in my mokeskin pouch for something that could help her, she looks at me sadly and with her last breath says, 'Why weren't you prepared?' And then she dies, and I know as her eyes close that she won't ever forgive me -"

Ah, why the Emergency Healing Pack Plus haven't Universal blood transfusion pack?!

Great picture!


Now Hermione is a Sparkling Unicorn Princess/Troll with a Horcrux, so everything is fine.

*Remembers the conversation Harry had with his "selves" about how if they keep eating meat in spite of not knowing if animals have had sentience sneezed into them....then it was fair for monsters who didn't know any better to eat humans*

*looks at picture again*

THIS is fair?  Context, huh?

(although to be honest: I also kind of thought about that when Harry killed the troll.  It was totally it or Harry in that situation, but I was worried that Harry's soul "cracked" and he was about to avada kedavra before he instead levitated his ring.)

Snakes are Sentient!!!
are plants sentient!!!??? 

I don't if Harry's soul can crack. Do they really have souls in HPMOR verse? The definition of soul is very vague.
Because it seems like Hermoine can be physically patched up but Dumbledore insists her soul left and it would be pointless.
I was reading the P Zombie page from Less Wrong >3<  its good to talk to another fan
TechZeroPyro Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2013
Well, this is referring to "Soul" as Madeye Moody used the term, talking about what has to happen to allow a person to use the Killing Curse.

You have to decide that you hate the person so much that you want them gone, not because you have to kill them to protect something else, but rather because you don't want to live in a universe you have to share with this person for even a second longer than you have to.

No compromises.  No tolerance.  No treaties.  No excuses or rationalizations.  No apologies, ever.


You have to hate them so much that you would kill them for no good reason at all (hypothetically speaking.  Lily HAD a good reason to try and kill Voldy.  To save Harry.  But she couldn't do it.  Not faster than her opponent could do it in that fraction-of-a-second.)

And that hurts a person's Psyche to have that much hatred.  It actually made me wonder if Harry could still do the True Patronus Charm if he Avada Kedvra'd somebody.  As if there were diametrically opposed to each other.

"Death should not exist"  =/= "Oh boy oh boy I think I might be getting off on the thought of destroying this person"
C2ii Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
oh my gosh did you read that joke theory on the wiki (the one about the bee armor)

spoilers (to anyone not up to date)
I'm never too worried about Harry cracking. Its hard to see how there's any time to break his motto completely and put him back together in time. All this build up only showed his determination to eliminate death. If HJPEV killed the troll I expect more than one more arc. I guess the issue with keeping up with the Author's Notes is knowing how much longer til this journey ends.

I totally agree with you
TechZeroPyro Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2013
Bees?  My god.

er...actually, no.  I haven't seen that one.

Also, you totally agree with me...where?  Over the Killing Curse and human patronuses being mutually exclusive?
C2ii Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm agreeing with 2.0 cannot co exist with ability to AV.
haha someone on the less wrong wiki forums joked about the AV hitting any living being with 'soul'
since Moody demonstrated on animals, in this sense animals do have souls that can be AVed.

So someone said harry should just wear an armor made of bees or at least some form of transmuted armor. 
This way he can never get AVed!
Velox415 Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2013
Hm, well I guess the animal in question would have to be sufficiently complex (contain a brain, perhaps?) since your skin is covered in tiny microbes. 
C2ii Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
canon wise a spider suffice :>
TechZeroPyro Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2013
That's....mostly true.

But I seem to recall in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry ducked behind a tombstone for cover from an Avada, and it send a little bit of the tomb stone flying (that was the actual book, not the awful movie series.  "lol, lets send all the Slytherins to the DUNGEONS for the final battle, its not like they LIVE there or anything! LOLOLOLOLOLOL!" ugh.).  There's no telling if every life form in the blast radius gets Life-drained or just suffer normal explosive trauma (or if that's just a result of the spell hitting a rigid object and the explosion itself is less impressive.)

Of course, it was Voldemort's Avada Kedavra, so perhaps he gets to be special.

The other thing is that AV might have a bounce effect with a limited range, ala Chain lightning, so all Harry's Bee armor does is get a bunch of unsuspecting insects killed alongside him, still with only one Avada Kevadra.

HPMOR!AV =/= canon!AV
I think this was established but I can't seem to remember where. 
I wish I could be more productive. All I seem to recall is HPMOR!AV tracks until it reaches a target and goes through objects while I'm not sure canon!AV follows that. HPMOR!AV doesn't stop until it hits anything with a soul or something like that. I thought it was a novel idea and made me laugh for some time. 

Nothing too serious here : P

so, George R R Martin, Joss Whedon and Eliezer Yudkowsky walk into a bar, and everyone you love dies.

Also, I WANT to favorite it, but I CAN'T, since it's a HUGE SPOILER so then I couldn't direct people to my deviant art page.

Much like 1337w0n, I cringed... at your piece. I mean, I literally went "yeeggghhhh" out loud when this image evoked my memories of that scene. So damn powerful.
1337w0n Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I didn't cringe; I screamed.
C2ii Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
