“And Harry, with the unerring skill of the Seeker, caught the wand in his free hand as Voldemort fell backward, arms splayed, the slit pupils of the scarlet eyes rolling upward. Tom Riddle hit the floor with a mundane finality, his body feeble and shrunken, the white hands empty, the snakelike face vacant and unknowing. Voldemort was dead.”

You see, this is how it should have been. I wish that this wasn’t just a behind-the-scene photo. I wish that it had happened like this. Exactly like in the book. Voldemort died like anyone else. And it’s amazing how in the book, J.K. Rowling actually used his name. He was humanized in death. And I wish that they had shown that, instead of showing him do an imitation of the Corpse Bride:

Because it’s really important:

Tom Riddle was humanized in death.

In Clockwork Prince Jem told Tessa that the Parabatai ritual can be broken if one of them wishes to be a mundane. You never explained how a shadowhunter can wish to be a mundane?

cassandraclare:

Edmund, Will’s father, wanted to be a mundane and became one to marry his wife — Jem tells Tessa about it in Clockwork Angel, and it comes up again in both other books. If you want to read more about the exact process it’s in Vampires, Scones, and Edmund Herondale, in the Bane Chronicles. :) *
