Archimedes Catigern

Archimedes Catigern I still believe Philosopher's Stone would be better option (none of the pesky side effects like missing nose, talk about unfortunate look, you just cannot blend in anywhere after that), but if I have to have a horcrux, hmm I would probably make 2. Then I would have had 3 pieces of soul, cause 3 is magical number, and because if Tom taught us anything, it is that 7 is way too many. Oh, and I am not telling you what would it be, cause then you would destroy them. ;)

Auriga Wolf

Auriga Wolf Herpo the Foul was, to borrow the words and paraphrase Ollivander, a great wizard – terrible, yes, but great! Just as Tom Riddle :) As for Horcruxes, hmmm, that is a hard one, probably a stick which can be buried somewhere deep in a forest AND the crown jewels (cause you always need a back up and they will never destroy those)

Cassian Laflamme

Cassian Laflamme That's a great rundown! I especially love reading about Herpo the Foul and all the stuff he invented, and I wonder HOW!
But anyway, I have three answers. 1- something personal like Voldy does. 2 - a random pebble and just throw it into the sea 3 - a nokia 3310
