I swear that a swear is nothing to swear on, or about. And still, they have so much power over people, even over me I’d say. Being called out of your name is one of the most uncomfortable experiences that I think can happen. I think that swears have so much of an impact because of the intent behind their words. With all the people that seem to be able to throw them out all willy nilly, detaching the swear, and so themselves, from their original meaning, it would seem that they statement couldn’t be further from the truth. Still, having thrown them out myself, I would say that, even jokingly, a swear is a swear, and hurts just as bad: each piece chipping away at the person that they’re flying at, splintering pride. In the world of Harry Potter it seems that even more than an insult like “Mudblood”, so vicious that it’s comparable to a swear, an “Avada Kedavra” has more control over the turn that your life can take, quite literally. In terms of the damage done, at least for me, the killing curse is nowhere near as unforgivable.
