I Might Be Bellatrix Lestrange

Bellatrix Lestrange

Someone called me “unyielding” recently and the first thing that popped into my head was the scene in Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows where Ollivander holds Bellatrix Lestrange’s wand in his hand and describes it as “unyielding”. ย Obviously, I’m concerned about this. What if I am, in fact, Bellatrix Lestrange?

On the one hand, she’s a really bad person who takes pleasure in causing pain and suffering. On the other hand, she is a witch and totally got to go to Hogwarts so………..it’s really hard for me to decide how I feel about this new development in my life. ย I’m just going to let you, my internet consciouses, decide for me. Please give it the serious consideration it’s due.

  1. Bellatrix is awesome! She is not only evil, but a very talented evildoer. Something of an evil genius, if I may use that term. I think individuality and crazy-awesomeness are traits you both share.
    It’s funny, my friends and I actually have Harry Potter nicknames for each other, due to one of my closest friends being completely fascinated by the series. I ended up with… Bellatrix :L

  2. I actually love Bellatrix, she’s one of my favorite characters. She’s sort of – crazed and delightful. Being like her (in some ways) might not be SO bad!

  3. She just got mixed in with the wrong crowd! you’d be more like Bellatrix with your heart in the right place. That doesn’t sound too bad!

  4. I fail to understand why a person writing such witty articles and sharing so much joy and laughter can be anything like Bellatrix. Of course, I do not know you personally but I believe that we reflect our personalities through our writing. And your posts always make me laugh so am quite sure you’re a very nice person. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Hmmm…in the book, Bellatrix was kind of obsessed with Voldemort and she was a bad, bad girl. She was certainly off balance. As portrayed by the perfect-in-the-role Ms. Carter, Bellatrix was certifiably insane. What a delicious role that must have been for her. I never cared for Helena Bonham Carter one way or the other until I saw her in that role. Now I know she’s awesome. As are you. So no, I do not think you are Bellatrix. Perhaps you dabble in the role from time to time, I don’t know. But we all must have our fun, right?

    1. Agreed on the fact that Helena Bonham Carter is awesome. I also like the idea that I play the role of Bellatrix from time to time because then it lets people know I’m not all bad. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. I think you could do a lot worse than be compared to Bellatrix. Yes she was evil, but she was really good at doing evil. If you look at every sycophant to follow Voldemort, Bellatrix was the only one who could actually get something done. If you had to be compared to a female character from Harry Potter, the first choice has to be Hermione and then Bellatrix would be the second most flattering.

    1. I wish every one could be as great as you Greatsby. (Oh, I get it, you put “great” in your name. You are so clever.) Although, I have to disagree with Hermione Granger being the first choice because she couldn’t even defeat Bellatrix with two other people fighting with her. So really the order of best female characters should be Molly Weasley then Bellatrix Lestrange.

  7. I would call it being fierce and independent! Somewhere in there I am sure is also sexy, smart, goodness and caring too. Try and not take it too personal and look at it from the positive side. You Go Girl:)

  8. Well, maybe Bellatrix does alot of charity work that we don’t know about, I’m sure she has some hidden qualities of goodness. She does have killer clothes and enviable eye makeup…..

  9. Ha! I know I had the advantage of seeing your post title first, but that’s exactly what I thought of upon reading the word ‘unyielding.’ Awesome.

    I understand your dilemma, but Just Say No to Bellatrix. Those teeth. Gah! Unacceptable.

  10. Hmmm…. “Unyielding” can be a positive or negative trait, depending upon the context. You don’t strike me as someone who is easily swayed off course, which can definitely be a good thing. You also don’t give off an air of being obdurate, so I don’t think that flavor of unyielding would apply.

    At the surface, I’d take it as a compliment. Maybe you could provide some context for the comment?

    Or, if the quip was intended as an insult, I could just punch the offender in the ‘nads for you ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I think in this case they meant it somewhere between a compliment and an insult. Too be honest, I kind of stopped listening after “unyielding” because I was thinking about Harry Potter. ๐Ÿ˜‰
