The Seven Things We Hate About You (Know Who)
Those of us with a passion for all things Potter can most certainly agree that Lord Voldemort is as sinister as they come. Here are some reasons we love to hate him:
1. He’s a bully.
Muggle-born? Make decisions based on some sort of moral or ethic? You can forget the cool kids’ table.
2. He’s just plain scary-looking.
Nothing a quick Episkey can’t fi…Oh. Nevermind.
3. His hate does not discriminate.
Men, women, children, wizards, witches, and Muggles alike – Voldemort hates us all.
4. Even as a child, Tom Riddle was creepy.
“I can make bad things happen to people who are mean to me. I can make them hurt if I want to…”
5. He’s nosy (no pun intended).
Voldemort uses Legilimency to invade the layers of Harry’s brain, gaining access to his deepest, darkest thoughts. Rude.
6. Voldemort is a liar.
“Give me Harry Potter. Do this, and none shall be harmed. Give me Harry Potter, and I shall leave Hogwarts untouched. Give me Harry Potter, and you will be rewarded.”
7. And finally…
Voldemort symbolizes evil in its purest form. Maybe if he’d been just a bit more focused on keeping his nose and hair, he’d be a little less miserable – but then we’d never know one of the world’s greatest villains of all time.
