Re: the psychee--eecs network

Sirius would not have been able to transform in prison if that transformation required a wand, so I think you are right... once a person has become an Animagi they don't need a wand to transform into or revert back from their Animagus form. But making someone else transform would require the use of a wand.

The movie goofed, but like you said, what else is new? lol..

On the Voldemort wand thing, even JKR said that the idea of a rat carrying around a wand was far-fetched, but that was how she imagined it...

Re: the psychee--eecs network

Good question! Here’s what’s confusing though.. it has been what 13 years since the disappearance of Pettigrew and voldemort?

So let’s go back to the night at the potter’s . of course I assume people would turn up to see the commotion. IF voldemort left a body. They would’ve done something about it buried him and it would be logical for them to get his wand too.
I would’ve thought somebody like Dumbledore or someone from the order or the ministry confiscated the wands and took care of the bodies or something..

So how did Pettigrew know that the wand is still at the potters?


I wish harry entered the house. If voldemort’s wand was still in there , james and lilly’s wand should be in there too…

Re: the psychee--eecs network

That was the reason we believed that Scabbers got the wand right after the Potters were killed, before anyone else went into the room.

The Potters' wands were probably buried with them... I believe that was the custom.

No, he had the wand hidden somewhere, and just before he went to go find Voldemort, he retrieved it.

I think Psychee is taking a well deserved break, so I'll field this one.

Narcissa's maiden name was indeed Black. She and her sisters, Bellatrix and Andromeda were the children of Cygnus Black and Druella Rosier Black. Don't you love the name Druella-sounds like Cruella from 1001 Dalmatians.
