    I mean Dumbledore doesn't even need one of these things.. why go to the trouble of making something that can slowly turn out lights??

      I think it does more than that honestly. Maybe it’s a way to teleport to people they are thinking about. You can apparate if you know where but not who. Maybe the deluminator does that.

    I’m surprised you didn’t mention the connection between the taboo against saying Voldemort’s name and the fact that it’s exactly saying Ron’s name that summoned him. Turns it ISN’T just a name... there’s actually at least one artifact that literally summons the person when you say their name! On another note, the parallels between the deluminator and the Mirror are interesting... if it really was made by the wise brother like you believe, that might be drawing a parallel between him and Dumbledore as both being wise.

    that's very sad theory but to answer your question why would Dumbledore want to have a conversation with McGonagall if he was invisible makes more sense to turn out the lights but you might be right about the rest of this now is Ariana the deluminator or is it Credence interesting questions interesting questions pretty sure Ariana's obscurial is destroyed though maybe he use newts

  • Женя Шохова

    I'm concerned that he used a delluminator to watch Harry. That's why he brought it with him on the Privet Drive. He somehow sets it to listen to the keywords from Dursley family. He also has included to the list words as "letter", "hogwarts", "wizardy" and so on and maybe even "crazy". Dudley asked sadly at the day of Harry's eleven birthday if Vernon became crazy when he got them to that old house in the middle of nowhere. Then the toothless old man borrowed them a boat. Wouldn't it be nice joke from Albus to do this? And wouldn't it be really tragic that Albus Dumbldore has borrowed a boat to the Vernon Dursley just before Harry finds out he's a wizard AND that Albus has found the Voldemort's boat and has taken Harry with him to the horcrux?

    Post crimes of grindelwald theory about the deluminator. I don't think it took Dumbledore 18 years to figure out how to destroy a blood pact, Newt knew about it, so it's clearly not unique, or even particularly rare magic. What could have taken a substantial period of time was to figure out a way to find Grindelwald remotely and while catching him off guard, and creating a magical artifact to do so, insert the mirror of Erised and the deluminator.

    How interesting you can hear a part of the conversation before being transported to the people in question. What if Dumbledore created the delumimator in order for close friends and family to call to him in need. But also was
    in a circumstance where this happened and he accidentally killed Ariana when he was given false or incomplete information about the situation he was called to. I feel like he must have developed this tool in order to prevent something that happened from happening again.

    It should be called reluminator. Because it relights Rons path back to Harry and Hermione ;)

  • YukiSilverFox72

    So, I know this is a silly thing to correct since it's one of the first things you mention, but oh well. 🤷‍♀️ I thought they established in HBP that Apparating directly into a person's home was rude. Well, maybe not established but definitely explain why Apparating a distance away from someone's house was polite so the wizards inside had time to prepare for the visit. I feel like those rules would a apply for Muggles, too, and since he was waiting for Hagrid anyways just Apparating on the Dursleys' doorstep wouldn't have been prudent or useful anyways. I'm quite sure they do mention it somewhere and that there is a reason for it. 😅

    Spoiler alert for fantastic beasts crimes of Grindelwald,

    Credence is actually a Dumbeldor, and sense he has to die in this series, I would not be surprised if Dumbeldor preserves the last surviving bit of Credence's obsqurial ( sorry for the spelling) in his deluminator.

  • Tera Edwards
    Tera Edwards 4 months ago

    My theory has always been the following, since it also answers the question as to why Dumbledore is always in the right place at the right time:
    I believe that the current owner of the deluminator gains the ability to hear when ANYONE speak his name in the briefest of context. Notice, if you re-read the series, every time Dumbledore's name has been spoken urgently, he either appears or gives aid almost immediately. The one example I can bear right now is in the Chamber of Secrets. There's absolutely no way for Dumbledore to have known Harry needed help. He says Dumbledore's name and Dumbledore sends Faux to him almost immediately. Dumbledore himself can't have apparated because you can't in Hogwarts so he sends the next best thing. The obscural is an interesting theory, but I'm not sure. Right now, I think Dumbledore keeps it with him to serve as a beacon signal when those need him most.
    I will also add that perhaps you're right in saying that it is only those that the owner treasures most that can be heard, because with my theory, I've always wondered why Ron didn't hear his family talking about him.

    So does that mean the delimitator is how Dumbledore knew Harry was standing up against Voldemort in the chamber of secrets? That’s why Dumbledore knew to send Fox to the rescue, because Harry says his name while confronting Voldemort then heard their conversation.

  • Rebequitalindaybella
    Rebequitalindaybella 5 months ago

    Rewatching this after Crimes of Grindenwald makes me think about the theory of the dark twin you have... What if Dumbledore had in fact preserved Ariadnas obscurus and tried to resurrect her? But Credence was the result? In that way Credence can be really Dumbledores brother.

    That was a very Dumbledore-esk moment. It was also a sweet moment

  • Leia Amos
    Leia Amos 5 months ago

    Madeye may have wanted the deluminator because it magically takes out lights, but may not set off any Taboo, remember, in the 5th book they also bring up magic being used in the area Harry was in even if they couldn't confirm or deny it was Harry at his trial. It may have been the best way to set that in motion without setting off the alarm further.

  • Rafi Goldstein

    But an abscurial is a very dark form of magic so I think credence going past the light and turning them off might just be dark energy, energy so dark that it takes over other energies such as electricity.

    They dont leave the stone ANYWHERE, they leave it in the Forbidden Forest, a place where _obviously_ no one could ever go, because it is forbidden. Pretty smart. Certainly better than a Gringotts vault or a locket in a potion in a basin in a pond in a cave on the edge of a cliff in the middle of the ocean, or a lake in a not-forbidden forest
