Here Lies Dobby, A Free Elf

Location filming of the “Shell Cottage” scenes for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows are underway.

Above is a shot of Harry digging *********SPOILER READ THE BOOK ASSHOLE******** Dobby’s grave.

I actually teared up writing the title of this post. The section of the book that takes place at Shell Cottage, to me is among the most powerful in the series. While digging Dobby’s grave Harry makes a decision that will directly effect not only his life but the lives of all that he loves and cares about.

Horcruxes or Hallows? Harry, for the first time in the series, has no one to turn to, no Dumbledore, no Sirius, no Hagrid to help him with his choice. Horcruxes or Hallows.

I recently finished reading book 7, and this scene was more powerful this time than any time previous. I was never a fan of Dobby and actually found him a bit irritating. Until he sacrificed his free life, to save Harry and his friends.

A Free Elf Indeed.
