Harry Potter’s Secret Dark Magic Powers Were The Horcrux - Theory Explained

Harry Potter used magic accidentally several times as a child, but what if the dark magic he accidentally channeled was because of the horcux in him?

Throughout the early Harry Potter movies and books, the Boy Who Lived is shown accidentally performing dark magic, but what if those events were the work of the horcrux within him? Harry's magic is shown to be volatile, which is partly why the Dursleys are so terrified of the very idea of him being "different", but there's definitely an element of him not being in control. That may be called magical instinct persevering, but there could also be a darker reason behind it.

Harry's first major magical moment comes at the zoo when he unwittingly removes the glass of the snake's enclosure, miraculously without a wand, but there are other examples throughout of his magic seemingly acting of its own free will. Before , the books confirm Harry once turned a Muggle teacher's wig blue, for instance. And more tellingly, when Harry is being chased by Dudley's gang of bullies, he finds himself up on a roof, without evidence or real possibility of him having apparated. These things are presented as Harry's magical self-preservation or vengeful defense mechanisms in some cases because they fit the idea of his true identity being suppressed.

The telling thing about the moment when Harry mysteriously leaps to a rooftop - and indeed his unwitting use of parseltongue at the zoo - is that both suggest Dark Magic use. The latter is obvious, but the former is confirmed in the later revelation that only the most highly advanced dark wizards are able to fly unaided. And one compelling theory suggests that the magic used is the expression of the piece of Voldemort's soul within him, defending its vessel the same way the horcrux in the locket fights back against Harry and Ron in The Deathly Hallows.

In several of the early cases of Harry doing magic, it is in response to his being - or at least feeling - attacked. Combining the Parseltongue with vanishing the glass at the zoo is a means to punish Dudley, while flying away is in the name of self-preservation. There's even probably a case to suggest that the horcrux might identify the hatred of magic in the Dursleys that makes them ostracize and flat-out abuse Harry and automatically see Dudley as the enemy. Harry's temperament to his extended family would certainly fit with the added poison of that sort of influence.

Going further than the theory, there's also the possibility that Harry's horcrux wanted to be found by its original master. Acts of magic willfully ignoring the rules against underage magic usage led to punishment, but that sort of dark magic usage would presumably alert anyone in Voldemort's remaining circle. Like the One Ring calling out to Sauron, Harry's fate was always tied to Voldemort because of the dark compulsion he had towards him. Ironically, of course, while the horcrux might have protected him throughout the Harry Potter series, its ultimate destruction was also what saved Harry when Voldemort attempted to kill him in the forest.

Southern Charm: Thomas Exposes Patricia in Scathing Mothers Day Post

Southern Charm's Thomas Ravanel decided to expose Patricia Altschul in a scathing Mother's Day post by calling out her "racist" home decor.

Thomas Ravanel of Southern Charm decided to expose Patricia Altschul in a scathing Mother's Day post by calling out her "racist" home decor. The former South Carolina treasurer used to be pals with the socialite, but the tables have turned, and he is no longer holding back. 

Back in March, it was brought to viewers’ attention that the matriarch of Southern Charm was being called out for how she decorated her Christmas tree, specifically used two Confederate flags, and many were waiting on Bravo to comment. The silence was deafening, and now Ravenel is speaking his mind. The wealthy socialite relocated to Charleston from New York in 2008. She has also claimed she owns the bed where Robert E. Lee was born and even has a lock of hair from the Civil War Confederate general. These accusations have not shocked fans since Altschul often posts about her southern heritage on social media. To fans, it seems like she just doesn’t give a damn.

Like many Bravo fans, Ravenel is questioning why Bravo isn’t outing and firing Altschul for her love of everything confederate. The father of two took to his Twitter on Mother’s Day to blast the show's matriarch for her tasteless home decor. He asked why Bravo thinks it is a good idea to employ a “racist.” And frankly, fans also would like to know why the network has not addressed the issue, especially since we watched this last season as Leva Bonaparte openly talked about the Black Lives Matter movement.

Ravenel was shady, and instead of wishing his old friend a happy Mother’s Day, he blasted her all over social media, not to mention theorizing that Bravo actually is covering for the 80-year-old writing, “Typical ornaments one will see at Pat Altschul’s home. I wonder why Bravo never captures them on the show?” Fans asked why this was the first time Ravenel was speaking out on the subject. The politician answers honestly, tweeting, guess I was a little stunned. I’ve not much experience around true racists. There was zero tolerance in my home.  But they do exist, and then I started reviewing old pictures and seeing all the evidence pile up, and the disgust started to sink in, and it needs to be exposed.”

Ravenel ended his revelation by asking for Bravo to do better and end their relationship with her. But in a tongue-in-cheek statement, he made it clear Bravo uses the queen of the show for monetary reasons. The network has yet to respond, and neither has Altschul. There is no telling what the next season of Southern Charm will look like.
