    @Sesc, to your strong analysis I would add that, with the exception of Grindelwald, wizarding conflicts take place within the consensus that the Statute of Secrecy must be maintained, and so there will be limits to what both sides can do.

    To pre-empt a likely reply: yes, Voldemort attacked Muggles but never in a way that put the Statute of Secrecy at risk. It was always within the ability of the Ministry to contain... which is presumably the strategic point. Keep the Ministry focusing their resources on maintaining secrecy, keep them working overtime and under pressure from the ICW... don't give them the time or energy to focus their efforts on catching Voldemort.

    Because Harry's a pussy who names his kids after a manipulative headmaster, and the greasy wanker who had spent the entire life jerking off at the memory of his mum and had tormented him all the years at Hogwarts of all people. Refuses power of the hallows. What I liked was Remus telling Harry to cut it out with Expelliarmus and to do something else. Granted the kid doesn't listen but I found it funny that even Remus thought he was a shitty wizard. I think it was the best when Remus blasted Harry across the room.
