181. I'd sooner see Dumbledore
perform the cruciatus or avada kedavra.

forming a horcrux is the darkest of dark magic. we'd see that right around the time we'd see him kill off a beloved character and run throught the hogwarts gates cackling and insulting harry while dragging draco behind.

Speaking of whom, who do you think is going to win the quidditch cup in 7 now that slytherin doesn't have a seeker?
