Harry Potter: 7 Best Fan Ideas to Hide a Horcrux Voldemort Should Learn From
Everyone and their pet Hippogriff can come up with a better Horcrux idea than Lord Voldemort, but these seven ideas are something he really should have considered.
Ever since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, fans haven’t been able to stop producing ideas on hiding a Horcrux. The most popular ideas involve launching a Horcrux into open space or drowning it in the Mariana Trench, etc. Unfortunately, those prevent you from getting revived after you die, so they are quite delusional.
These seven fan ideas, on the other hand, are rather brilliant!
7. Hiding a Horcrux in the Chamber of Secrets
This one specifically applies to Lord Voldemort. Imagine having a hidden place only you know of, protected by the most dangerous magical beast that obeys you, and not using it to hide your Horcrux? It would have taken forever for another Heir of Slytherin to pop up (if ever), and even then, they wouldn’t be searching for it!
6. Using a Mundane Object and Shutting Up
It doesn’t even have to be a small stone or a piece of sand as many fans suggest — just not a legendary magical artifact, for crying out loud! Use your favorite mug for a Horcrux and shut up about “being closer to immortality than any living human” and all that stuff. Just shut up, sip your soul-stimulating coffee, and enjoy being immortal.
5. Hiding a Horcrux Among Random Stuff
To be frank, the Ravenclaw’s Diadem was Voldemort’s best idea for hiding a Horcrux. Apart from the Room of Hidden Things, a junk shop would have done nicely: the Horcrux would have been hidden among random stuff and often passed around, allowing quick and easy access to living humans at all times to revive you.
4. Making the Most Capitalistic Horcrux
Building upon the previous idea, how about using…money? Unlike the junk shop idea, you could even use the wizarding money, too, to ensure not ever leaving the Wizarding World and making your resurrection easier. Sickles and Knuts circulate like crazy, so no one would suspect a thing, and the Horcrux would stay safe forever.
3. Setting Up Fidelius Charm Respawn Points
Picture this: you hide your Horcrux in a hidden location, protect it with the Fidelius Charm, become the Secret Keeper, and never tell anyone about it. Bingo! No one will ever find your Horcrux. And if you’re monstrous enough to create several, you can even set up an entire system of respawn points all around the world for fun.
2. Using the Mirror of Erised’s Magic
Albus Dumbledore used the Mirror of Erised to ensure that only someone who wanted to save the Sorcerer’s Stone, not use it, could access it. The same thing could be done with a Horcrux: few people have access to the Mirror in the first place, and even if your enemies found it, they wouldn’t be able to grab the Horcrux. Sike!
1. Lavishly Hiding in Plain Sight
This last idea is perhaps the most brilliant as it solves two major issues. By turning a high-security masterpiece from the Muggle world into your Horcrux — think, Mona Lisa — you will never need to protect it yourself, and no one would suspect it. Magic leaves traces, after all, but you don’t need magic to ensure Mona Lisa’s security. Also, this method would rub your ego the right way if you’re anything like Voldemort.
