Put it this way. Voldemort takes over the U.K, which is treated as taking over the entire world, which implies that Britain's international standing in the Wizarding World is much greater than its standing in the Muggle one. Secondly, Grindelwald was "never powerful here", so presumably his reign of terror did not affect the UK too badly. Also, the Muggle British Empire fell due to two main reasons: Political awakening (both in terms of nationalism amongst the colonies and liberalism amongst the British) and WorldWarTwo causing economic harship. World War Two was not fought in the wizarding world, and political ideologies (especially with regard to human rights etc) as we understand them seem to be very different for wizards. So, as British muggles expanded across the globe, carving out their vast empire, wizards went with them, and, given the ascendancy of British muggles in the colonies, it was natural British wizards should rise to prominence. Ultimately, while the Muggles of India etc are no longer citizens of the Empire, the Wizards of these nations still are. Thus, Britain is the Wizarding World's superpower, and that is why Voldemort's takeover is treated as an act of world-conquering importance, rather than the oppression of a rainy island off Europe's coast.

One day, the Marauders were in trouble for some reason (as usual). This time, they quickly passed themselves off as a music band and came up with the name "Hob Goblins", which was also a Line Of Sight Name, probably a stand in for the Beatles. Naturally, [[Main/SpringtimeForHitler they proved a hit]], and so they carried on the deception for several years, à la ''[[Main/HannahMontana Hannah Montana]]''. It ended only when... you know, three-fourths of them were dead, in Azkaban, or living as someone's pet rat.

[[WMG: The reason why the Horcruxes are the way they are is because you need a personal connection to it.]]
[[spoiler:Asides from Harry Potter of course]]. If any object could be made a Horcrux Voldemort would've used something innocuous that people wouldn't be able to identify. His diary and Marvolo Gaunt's ring are pretty obvious examples, and Salazar Slytherin's locket is due to his close affinity towards Slytherin and him being his heir. Helga Hufflepuff's Cup and Rowena Ravenclaw's Diadem is a less obvious example; he considers Hogwarts his true home, and anything important to the founders he'd have attachment to. He could've picked Godric Gryffindor's Sword, but given his personal hang-ups the connection would've failed. Finally there's Nagini, who's attachment is his strong affinity with snakes and that her venom sustained him in his rudimentary body.

** It's a combination of the two. Harry was the true Master of Death. He didn't try and avoid death like Voldemort, but accepted it willingly, realizing it was inevitable and natural. When struck by the avada kedavra, Death recognized his Master and knew it was not truly his time. Thus Harry lived.

** And this is different from being a regular animagus... how? Other than being something one is born with instead of learning.

\n* But Dobby's considered to be an incredibly weird house-elf for being happy about being freed. Kreacher is so into being a servant that his goal is to have his head mounted on the wall in Grimmauld Place. It wouldn't make sense for him to be happy about being freed, just to be happy that this new master (who he previously hated and treated like crap as much as possible) gave him something that had belonged to dear old Regulus.

** The problem with this theory is that the recordings of the prophecies in the Department of Mysteries were designed to cause severe brain damage to anyone who tried to pick one of them up, unless the person who tried to pick up a recording of a certain prophecy was mentioned in that prophecy. Harry picked up the recording labeled "SPT to APWBD: Dark Lord and ?Harry Potter" and did not suffer any brain damage; thus that prophecy had to be about Harry. Unless you're suggesting that Harry DID suffer brain damage from picking it up, and everything that happened after that was a figment of an addled mind...



[[WMG: The prophecy drove Harry insane.]]

As a corollary to WMG entry about Harry not being the Chosen One: the prophecy wasn't about Harry, and thus when he picked up the recording of it near the end of book 5, it did the same damage to Harry's brain that it had done to Broderick Bode's; and everything that happened after that was a figment of Harry's imagination.
