Apparently, my son has been hunting Horcruxes in his spare time. You think he would have learned from Dumbledore’s mistakes and left the Guant ring alone.
“The ring, Harry. Marvolo’s ring. And a terrible curse there was upon it too. Had it not been — forgive me the lack of seemly modesty — for my own prodigious skill, and for Professor Snape’s timely action when I returned to Hogwarts, desperately injured, I might not have lived to tell the tale. However, a withered hand does not seem an unreasonable exchange for a seventh of Voldemort’s soul. The ring is no longer a Horcrux.” —Albus Dumbledore (explaining the effects of the curse).
