    What do you think? Is the Blood Pact a form of Dark Magic?

    • Lisa Kazmier

      This theory is intriguing. But I'm in doubt how it solidifies Aberforth's resentment of Albus if Albus intervened when Aberforth or Arianna was being tortured. Maybe if he blamed Albus for the origins. I think it should be fleshed out and matched up with what Aberforth says to Harry.

      SuperCarlinBrothers I don’t think so. I think it’s forged by love

      Yes and it was Grindelwald’s idea I think he probably saw a vision that Dumbledore would come after him so he tricked Dumbledore into it and that is why he had it and not Dumbledore

    Here's a question for the brothers...since we know that there were wizards during the WWII time period, had any wizards fought in this war? If not, because of,say, the secrecy act, how did they get away with it and if they did fight, wouldn't they have used magic, which other, muggles would have seen. I mean I doubt if they would just allow themselves to be killed without trying to save themselves by using magic.

    But what if the blood pact DOES happen AFTER Arianas death...??? I could also see JKR writing a VERY sad underlying story where Grindelwald and Aberforth battle, Albus tries to break it up, Ariana dies. And after.... Grindelwald tries to win back Albus ( just like he does with Credence in FB 1&2 ) . Grindelwald initiates the blood pact , maybe promising that he would never leave Albus (obviously playing on his biggest fear and manipulating him WITH LOVE in his time of need- as grindelwald does with EVERY character we've seen) . And after all that ( and once grindelwald has everything he needs) Grindelwald BETRAYS Albus .... Leaving Albus entirely heartbroken, familyless, manipulated, and now in a position where he won't and CAN'T go up against the man who he THOUGHT loved him.

    Great video. I am a new harry potter youtuber and I made a video about the origin of the blood pact, why and when it was created and I just realized, Ariana's death is included in both our theories by accident. The video will possibly enlighten harry potter fans and I encourage people to watch this. Love the theory

    The blood pact is definitely dark magic. Any magic used or conjured conjured with the spill of blood is considered dark. You can conjured white or neutral to effect blood, but it's not considered dark.

  • Emma Brennan

    I have a theory
    P.S. you have to watch Harry potter and the deathly Hallows to understand this
    Here goes, so Albus Dumbledore sent his sister Ariana on a mission and died during that mission.Well that mission was on that ship her son was credence. Credence was swapped with another baby boy who died. Which means Ariana died with the wrong baby and her real son Credence is alive and is Albus' nephew.
    Thank you if you took the liberty of reading all that!

    first for Dumbledore second you're actually kind of wrong about part of it because I before it doesn't know but it's not his felt he says that it could be any of them any of the three of them so again all three of them must have been fighting when Ariana died but I do agree that maybe the blood pact did cause it to bounce back although I don't know why I didn't come up in the books you think Dumbledore at least would mention it or at least that Harry would figure it out somehow

    I think that Albus served as a kind of shield between Grindelwald and Aberforth, Albus wanted to protect the both of them from each other. I think, because of that, the spell that Grinderwald or Aberforth cast repelled to Ariana. Due to the blood pact, i think Credence is the result of it.

    I think as follow.
    I see the blood pact as the opposite of the unbreakable vow. If you break your unbreakable vow, you die.
    If you break the blood pact, (what Dumbledore and Grindelwald did in 1899) Some dark energy (an obscurialish energy) is going to be born. I also think, that the same dark energy is in 1904 strong enough to shape itself as a baby we know later on as Credence, who magically survived because of Leta Lestrange.
    That will explain why Grindelwald know who Credence is and why the phoenix appears at the end of the movie. Because Credence is the result of the blood pact of Grindelwald and Albus A.K.A a Dumbledore

    WAIT. HOLD WITH ME HERE. WHAT IF the Blood Pact only affects duels? Like, what if the reason Dumbledore and Grindy and Aberforth's fight was allowed by the blood pact only because there were THREE people fighting? I remember in an earlier vid you guys said that Newt's Beasts would probably play a part in Dumbledore's defeat of Grindy. SOOOOOOO what if the beasts officially make it NOT a duel and SOMEHOW the beasts help him be able to not only overcome the Blood Pact, but the Elder Wand as well??? I also really like this theory tho............ AGH idk guess I'll just have to wAiT aNd SeE.

    Just now realizing that if Voldemort hadn't officially marked Harry as his equal then when he took Harry's blood for his resurrection then he 100% did.
    He pretty much reupped the marking of Harry as his equal. Sealing the prophecy.

  • T.J. Armendariz

    Voldemort wanted to use Harry’s blood to break the love protection that kept Voldemort from touching (or I presume harming) Harry and failed to realize it would act like a horcrux 2.0 keeping Harry alive (now with auto-embodiment). It’s also possible that the blood pact kills someone important such as the creator or someone they care about if one violates it.

  • maisey 2000

    Grindelwald always seems to be a few steps ahead so what if he knew that the blood pact was going to be stolen and he let it happen because it's a fake which is why he was walking around with it so openly, I mean with him being as powerful as he is would it really be such a stretch to assume that he could make a replica of it because he needs newt and or Dumbledore to think that they have the advantage of having it as part of a bigger plan

    I think the reasons that Voldemort had to use Harry’s blood is because there was a part of him inside Harry so it was half Voldemort’s blood and half Harry’s blood.

    Speaking about Voldemort taking Harry's blood, maybe Voldemort has that second reason to find out the Elder Wand, to go around Harry's bllod protection, because ou know, the Elder Wand is unbeatable aka OP. After the Elder Wand can repair Harry's wand which was damaged beyound magical repair by Hermione's blasting spell...

    Love your theory! Though i always wonder, If that's a pact between both of them... Why does only Grindelwald hold it... Isn't it suppose to work both ways? Instead it's more like a talisman protecting him against Dumbledore act on him

  • toanzhou

    What if he is saying don’t hurt them TO the blood pact. If he shot a curse or deflected a curse towards grindy, maybe the pact would punish him the best way possible, and it would know because it is made with dumbles blood that the siblings would be the real weakness here for our boy.

  • Dawn Robbins
    Dawn Robbins 6 months ago +1

    Just want to point out that Aberforth specifically says in Deathly Hallows that it was a "three-way duel" between himself, Albus and Grindelwald and that he doesn't know which of the three of them cast the curse that killed Ariana so I don't think that Aberforth was laying helpless at any point except the beginning as he says Grindelwald using Cruciatus against him was what sparked the fight. Although he could easily have misinterpreted Albus playing defence for both sides as active offense in the heat of the moment.

    Even before I listen to the video I will say, duh. Yes of course it did. They got in a fight, and because of the Blood Pact, the spell bounced off each other and hit Ariana.

    Grindle attacks Aber, Dumble goes infront to block the Avada, Blood Pact reflects to Ariana. Or Dumb attacks Grind and reflects. Either way, fun thought train.

    Voldemort used Harry's blood to revive himself so he'd be able to touch him, since he'd have the Love Barrier in his veins as well. He even shows off after he does it to prove his point.

    Rolling has Blood magic as Dark. But not all blood magic is Dark, some cases threw out history of Blood magic use involves a sacrifice to put an end to some great suffering usually one during that he or she may save other's.
