I guess the best solution to this limitation would be to have the Horcrux-People make their own Horcruxes, and so on.

Basically Voldemort turns Bellatrix into a Horcrux, she then turns Barty Crouch Jr. into her Horcrux.

With this setup, Harry would be forced to kill people in order to defeat Voldemort.
Could you form a loop of living Horcruxes?

I've thought about it but I'm not sure if it would be a bad or a good idea.

If Voldemort turns Bellatrix into a Horcrux and she then turns him into her Horcrux, then they're both invincible.

Then again, their bodies can be destroyed, so it doesn't really matter if they're both each other's horcruxes.

Bookjack

A gang of magical thieves come together to break the magical copy protections on the latest Hogwarts textbooks. But its a race against time, with start of term fast approaching.

I figure the main character is a muggle born student who dropped out of Hogwarts with a few O.W.Ls to his name. He's recruited because he has a muggle driving licence and the crew want to transport the test book to their hideout off the Ministry radar. And he gets sucked in further from there.

The test book is a dry run. They know it uses the same modern copy protection spells as the soon-to-be-released textbooks and they know if they can copy it, they're set.

The crew knows all the tricks of the bookjacking trade - curse breaking, the million monkeys game, the wandering comma, the illiterate scribe, the Mississippi back and forth.

All fail with the test book. The new copy protection spells aren't cast on the individual books - but on a single ideal copy, kept in a safe place.

Their only hope is an audacious scheme to break into the Ministry Central Book Vault and switch the master copies with fakes.

Why would the Ministry have the master? I like the idea, but I'm not sure why the Ministry would have it over somewhere else.

When you register a book for copyright in the real world, one of the steps is to send a copy to the legal deposit library of your country. In the UK, this means the British Library - which is a non-departmental public body.

I assume the Ministry of Magic operates a similar system. Of course, magic makes spell books a touch more dangerous than their muggle counterparts - hence a Book Vault rather than a library.

Since the deposit copy is, in a sense, the master against which the copyright exists, it is also the master used in the copy protection magic.

I was reading Taure's Alexandra Potter when I came up with this idea: hence (very) valuable books.

This also meant Taure's ideas about magic were bouncing around my head. One of those is Ideal casting (Ideal as in Platonic idealism), where you can magic things by magicing a symbol of them. This is a weird sort of magic, hinted at occasionally in canon, and used in a lot of Taure's fics.

For this type of magic, the stronger the symbol, the better the magic can work. The legal deposit copy of a book is a natural fit for the master copy protection magic.

Imagine if the population of magical creatures was way, way higher than in Canon.

To deal with the increasing chance of muggles finding out about them, Wizards invent a device that lets the user capture magical creatures into miniature spheres.

Before being captured however, said magical creature must be weakened as it may resist its new prison. After it is captured though, the creature is tied to its sphere and can be released and recalled at the owner's wish.

Thus, an entire new industry in the magical world is born overnight with many people capturing magical creatures, trading them, using them in fights or putting them to various tasks.

Go, Norbert!

“Well, I think this should put an end to the oaf’s[Hagrid's] teaching career,” said Malfoy, his eyes glinting. “Half-giant… and there was me thinking he’d just swallowed a bottle of Skele-Gro when he was young… None of the mummies and daddies are going to like this at all… They’ll be worried he’ll eat their kids, ha, ha…”
So this line has got me thinking. Prior to the half giant revelation, Draco thought Hagrid was the result of drinking too much of a bone growing potion as a child. Assuming for the sake of plot that such a scenario was possible, what weird wizards could result from other potions?

Ideas:

A witch who cannot lie due to her mother being accidentally given Veritaserum while pregnant.

A wizard with great strength after falling in a cauldron of strengthening solution as a baby (cough Obelix cough).

A witch who can no longer feel emotions after her nurse gave her one too many Calming Draughts as a baby due to her constant crying.

Anyone got any other possibilities?

A wizard that grows up to be an evil psychopath because his mother conceived him while drugging and raping his father with a love potion.

I think that has some potential.

That sounds vaguely canon.

How about George's wife is always having a craving for Ton-Tongue toffee while she's pregnant. Their first born son Monkey D. Weasley takes over the magical seas by storm.

An interesting idea but not canon in this case.

The idea comes from a misunderstanding of a 2007 interview given by JKR to Bloomsbury.com.

Quote:
Ravleen: How much does the fact that voldemort was conceived under a love potion have to do with his nonability to understand love is it more symbolic

J.K. Rowling: It was a symbolic way of showing that he came from a loveless union – but of course, everything would have changed if Merope had survived and raised him herself and loved him.
As you can see, in this case love potion = no love is out of universe symbolism, not in universe metaphysics.
