Trope that doesn't exist.
Where else would Death get the [[IncrediblyLamePun styx]] to carve into the most lethal wand in all of existence? But puns aside, a wand from a tree beyond the veil would probably be ''much'' more potent, and definitely more resistant to "dying" from violence or old age ([[DoubleJeopardy again]]), than would a wand carved from a normal (albeit very, very old) tree.

** Moody has his magic eye that can see through literally everything. Crouch borrowed it as part of his disguise (Polyjuice couldn't replicate it). Mrs Norris is a ''cat'', and did not see through the cloak - she ''smelled'' Harry because the cloak does not stop detection by the other senses. Similarly, Harry is not made inaudible by the cloak. When did Dumbledore ever see through it, exactly?

***** Maybe during one of her transformations, she got in a fight with another animal and was wounded in the leg, hence the cane?

Come on, Dumbledore even says in his commentary that one of the reasons the Fountain of Fair Fortune play turned out so badly was because of a LoveTriangle with the actors, and pretty much the entire point of the SchoolPlay fanfic is to force the author's favorite ship together by making them play characters who fall in love.

Immediately after the Ashwinder exploded, the two girls attacked one another with spells and the whole thing just went downhill from there.

* {{Jossed}}. [[JKRowling JK Rowling]] said on her website that it was a Thestral hair, though if the below theory is correct, then this theory lives on to another day!

[[WMG: Beatrix Bloxam's uncle Nobby is the local equivalent to {{Discworld}}'s Corporal Cecil Wormsborough St. John Nobbs, aka Nobby.]] Nobby himself is already unpleasant to look at when fully clothed, but having to imagine him naked with an old crone and ComicSutra implements? Little wonder she was traumtized by the "ghastly details of the dreadfully unsavory affair of my uncle Nobby, the local hag and a sack of Bouncing Bulbs".

* Um... The book very clearly explained how the Elder Wand changes masters. At least, it was pretty clear to me. In case it wasn't, here it is: In order for the Elder Wand to recognize a new master, its current master must be defeated, but "defeated" does ''not'' mean "killed". It could mean something as simple as Disarming, as [[spoiler: Harry]] did to the real master of the Elder Wand as of the end of HalfBloodPrince, [[spoiler: Draco Malfoy]] (also: the master doesn't have to be using the Elder Wand for it to be defeated). So there's the first link in the progression broken: Snape was never the master of the Elder Wand, because [[spoiler: he killed Dumbledore as per a prior agreement; Dumbledore more or less forfeited his mastery of the wand to Draco]]. The second link in the chain has a very low probability of being able to mutter an incantation (she'd have to hold the wand in her mouth, and proper word choice and pronunciation is kind of a big deal in the Potterverse), and she never defeated any of the wand's true masters. Neville, while [[TookALevelInBadass taking a level in badass]], ''also'' never defeated any of the wand's masters, but hey, come on. He ended up being master of a big fucking sword that can only be mastered by a true Gryffindor; he's no less {{badass}} for not being a master of the Elder Wand (which, as [[spoiler: Harry]] pointed out later, is a lot more hassle than most people want to deal with).
