and shout: “…..!”

Finish the story!
Come up with a spell/incantation, describe what it does, and how you use it to defeat
Voldemort and his band of evil.

    Frango legous everto!

    Frango is Latin for “to break into pieces” and everto is “demolish.” So, by casting this spell Valdemort and his band of evil will be broken into pieces and demolished! Yay!

    Legotus Morsus!!

    Wands will shoot tiny Legos at the Dark Minion’s feet while simultaneously making their shoes disappear, thereby causing them to step on the Legos and be hobbled into submission…

    …The Dark Lord smiles slyly. Your grip tightens around your wand as you raise your arm and shout “Legodecedre!”
    You watch in excitement as tiny LEGO pieces fly out of the walls, floors, ceiling, break through windows and come to the rescue, covering He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named and his minions in tiny blocks. The Dark Lord thrashes and screams, uttering terrible incantations.
    The Death Eaters blast away at the ever growing casket of Legos that surround them, blowing holes in its construction.
    In a final attempt, you yell “Umbraico,” effectively rendering the tiny blocks impervious to destructive spells.
    The Dark Lord lets out one final curse and looks at you. You maintain eye contact for half a second before the Dark Lord is completely covered in plastic blocks.
    You sit down, unbelieving. You can still here the muffled sounds of the Death Eaters, suffocating in their plastic coffins, dying a terrible, yet well deserved, death.


    With the battle over, the damage became clear. Many paintings were destroyed beyond magical repair, walls crumbling under the ever-pounding curses from the battle. Statues lay littered on the floor, and pieces of glass cover everything in a fine dust.
    You breathe heavily as Professor Flitwick enters the room. He congratulates you on your charm work and assures you that he’ll put in a good remark to the judges during your NEWTs.

    ****alt. ending****

    Then the famous Harry Potter comes in and yells at you, exclaiming “Hey! That was supposed to be my kill! The prophecy- m-my destiny…?”
    He fades off in disbelief, and just as suddenly as Harry appeared on the scene, Dumbledore’s ghost fades into view, and he says “Harry you fool! I was tricking you when I told you that prophecies are always true- didn’t you realize it was April Fools!?! There’s no such thing as a destiny.”


    “decedre” is one of many Latin words that mean death. All other spells in the story are true, I had made a “complete spells, charms, hexes, jinxes and curses” Word doc when I was younger, and it has all of them ever used, mentioned, or described. So easy reference, huh?

    Reversicus Torsoicus!

    The torso sections of He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named and his follows instantly reverse. In all the confusion, I’m able to slip between one of the Death Eaters’ legs and run for help.

  7. Ooops! correction:

    “Letonious-Go,Letonious-Go!” POOW! POOF! The Dark Lord is turned int a LEGO kitten and his Death Eaters become toads. Harry Potter and the spell of LEGO, saves the world!

    leg godt bricksium!

    This spell opens up a portal full of legos! I grab huandfuls and handfuls of lego bricks and construct a giant catapult which I trick the death eaters and “he who must not be named” into walking onto. I pull the trigger and they go flying into the forbidden forest landing on a unicorn’s horn. The unicorn was coincidentily the secret eighth horcruxe, and is now destroyed, therefore, killing voldemort!

    I chose this spell because leg godt, which in danish means “play well”, is what the word lego comes from. Bricksium is just brick, as in lego brick. with a cool ending.

    Thanks for the great site and fun contests! Good luck everyone!

    chucks bricks at the deatheaters face therefor leaving them scared for life

    :”Legoder Rodus” (Legoder (Jack) means made of Legos and Rodus (Latin) broken pieces of stone).

    The Deatheaters and Voldemort become minifigs and burst into ten pieces each on the ground. (2 legs, 2 arms, 2 hands, 1 head, 1 torso, 1 belt piece, and hoods/capes.)

    I quickly mix up all the pieces so they can’t find whose head goes with what body, legs, etc. Giving me time to call my friends.

    My friends and I then break the wands and throw all the pieces into the pick-a-brick wall at the Lego store. Where a bunch of little girls would use their parts to make princess’ at their next Lego Birthday party.

    The End

    Wow, there’s already some very good story endings…but here’s my attempt. *ahem*

    Your grip tightens around your wand as you raise your arm
    and shout: “laterculus accido Legous!” Briefly you worry if you picked too much of a mouthful of a spell and if you got the pronouciation perfectly correct, but that thought ends as a large brick from the ceiling falls squarely on the Dark Lord and his minions. As the dust settles, only the broken tip of the Dark Lord’s wand is visible from beneath the brick.

    Supposedly laterculus means brick, and accido means fall in Latin. 🙂

    May 16, 2011 at 8:55 pm

  12. “pravus pilosus legous”

    Pravus means “Evil” in Latin and pilosus means “covered in hair”(I might have mixed the words’ definitions up).This is the effect: A lego hair piece appears on The Dark Lord and he decides that he’s a lot closer to plan B now than he is to plan A. Plan B is to form a dancing (and singing) group and become rich and famous (which he can now do because he’s not bald and ugly anymore). Plan A was to become the ultimate wizard or whatever. The Death Eaters also join the (successful) group.

    wingardian brickelda!=
    Melts and replaces peoples brains with lego bricks!

    I will yell this spell and watch as Voldemort and his band of evil will faint and when they wake up there brains will be replaced with one thing; legos, bricks, plastic!

    “L’eggo my lego”

    causes the evil guys to return to pieces!

    May 17, 2011 at 4:58 pm

  16. Propugnaculum horribilis! The death eaters stared in amazement as brick-by-brick a fortified wall materialized dividing them from their prey. In their frustration and rage they roared their blackest magic against the wall, but it held fast. The Dark Lord approached, flicking his wand to and fro menacingly and within seconds the bricks began to crack and a hole was made. Peering inside, the evil quartet found nothing but a lever that hadn’t previously been there and the mouth of a tunnel heading deep into the mysterious bowels of the castle. With the knowledge that their foes had powerful unknown magic and the aid of Hogwarts, they proceeded onwards warily.

  17. “Clownus Automobus”

    Pieces from set 3177 Small Car fly out of the wand and assemble themselves, shortly followed by a swarm of clowns from Minifigures Series 1 wielding pies and spray flowers rushing out of the car onto ol’ Voldie.

    May 18, 2011 at 2:26 am

  18. “Blow up stupid LEGO guy!” and Voldemort just stares and says “No, YOU BLOW UP STUDIP LEGO!”
    And this goes on for a few hours, until Voldemort realizes “IM LATE FOR SUPPER!” and he runs home to eat his dinner. So you become a hero at Hogwarts and live happily ever after.

    LEGOillarmus! (to the tune of Expelliarmus!, but instead of the wands flying out of Voldy’s hands and the other Death Eaters’ hands, all the LEGO guys just break apart into little LEGO pieces). And like that, the Battle of Hogwarts is over, and Harry has won. 🙂

    “Minument Figuro!”, but aside from a distant roll of thunder, nothing seems to occur. Voldemort crookedly grins as he takes another step in your direction, wand-tip nearly at your throat.
    “Goodbye, friend of Potter…” he begins.
    Suddenly, he pauses; a brief look of confusion flickers across his face before being yet again replaced with his previous snarl. In a small motion, he shakes as if to clear his head, and pulls back his wand in a large fluid motion. There is no mistaking this spell’s intention.
    As he brings the wand down, Voldemort screams “Avada Ke-“, but a sickening crunch cuts him off mid-swing.
    You raise your head from your arms, and observe Voldemort standing in horror, helplessly staring straight up in a feeble attempt to see the top of his own head. A large circular protrudance has risen from his skull. Suddenly, with a shout, Voldemort is thrown to the ground in violent convulsions! His body racks with an unseen force as his yells echo throughout the hall. As he thrashes from side to side, his cloak appears to enlarge and shroud everything but his face from view. It takes you a moment to realize that it isn’t his cloak growing, but that Voldemort himself is shrinking away underneath the folds of fabric. Screaming in agony and defeat, a flash of light bursts from the hood of his robe. Blinded, you turn away for a moment. When you look back, nothing remains of the Dark Lord except his shroud laying on the Great Hall’s stone floor.
    The Death Eaters quickly glance at each other before fleeing through the now burning giant oak doors. You are left alone, standing over the small pile of fabric. You reach down to pick up the last remnant of the once-feared wizard, when something clatters to the ground with an echo of plastic. You place the fallen object in your hand and bring it to eye-level. It’s a perfectly formed Mini-figure of the Dark Lord, noseless face frozen in a scream of agony. Quietly, you slip the figurine into your pocket and turn to walk out of the hall, wondering to yourself exactly how much such a rare figure would sell for on Ebay.

    clone murum!!! Suddenly, a wall of white lego bricks surrounds the dark lord and his death eaters. The wall around grows higher and higher, but then he-who-must-not-be-named shouts out “casurus!” and the wall around him disintegrates. After a second, the walls around the death eaters have fallen apart to reveal them transformed into jedi, each wielding a lightsaber, whom then proceed to rush at the dark lord who is restrained by the use of the force. I then scream out”Butterfly liquefáciet Brain.” Then, Voldemort slowly begins to melt until there is nothing but a pile of plastic. All of a sudden, the plastic begins to bubble, and then the jedi run away scared and cower behind the wall around a death eater who has not yet emerged. Then, out of the bubbling pool of plastic, a mouse emerges. As it scurries away, I silently say “Accipiter manducare” and the walls around the final death eater peel away, to reveal a huge hawk that swoops down and eats Lord Voldemouse. With a satisfied burp, the hawk swoops down and picks me up to take me back to Hogwarts to be the hero who killed he-who-must-not-be-named.

  22. Clonararus! As you shout that last curse, thousands upon thousands of LEGO clone troopers pile on the enemy…and in seconds, as the white lego guys slowly blink out, one by one, there is only a stray wand in the most powerful LEGO dark wizard’s place…and YOU are the hero of the LEGO Harry Potter Story.

    On behalf of my eight-year-old, Sam, who says:

    …My grip tightens around my wand as I raise my arm and shout “Legomo backinthebagyougo!” Then Voldemort and the Death Eaters instantly fall apart and go back into little plastic bags. Including instructions. Then I call Hagrid who delivers the bags to Azkaban. The End.

    May 18, 2011 at 8:45 pm

  24. legorandomacus! All the legos around you suddenly come apart and swirl randomly around and around until in their place stands: an Ice Cream shop. You stand horrified as you realize this is not what you wanted at all. But when you finally look up, you see that Voldemort and the death eaters are gone! Thinking they must have gone into the ice cream shop, you quickly go and find Hagrid, who in turn carries the villains of to Azkaban. After all this, you go to your bunk hoping to get some rest before the big celebration. You sigh, knowing you have just driven a perfectly good author (J.K. Rowling) out of business. Well to bad for her. (Though she might be saved by writing a book about you.)

    Your grip tightens around your wand as you raise your arm and shout: Legofrigidus! Nothing seems to happen. The dark lord grins, and begins to utter the terrible incantation Avada Ked- The dark lords arm seems to freeze as his hand turns to legos. You smile, Your charm has begun working. The dark lord becomes more immobile as His flesh becomes brick. His death eaters stare at him in terror as he becomes one big lego statue. The Death eaters look over at you snarling and raise their wands, but your ready for them. Legofrigidus! Legofrigidus!

    You look up as the sun begins to rise. The statues are illuminated in its first rays. You look at them for a while, then disassemble them. Just to be sure. (besides they had some rare pieces on them.)

    Frigidus is Freeze in latin.

    He points his wand and thinks of his favorite lego set. He has to really concentrate because there are so many that he loves. Then once it is fixed in his mind he yells: “Lego favorito!” and they all transform into his favorite set. He relaxes and starts builing it!

    As Voldemort and his Death Eaters advance, I spot a suit of armor stand behind them. It is my only chance. I point my wand and shout “Animatio!” Blast, my tongue slipped a little on the incantation, but fortunately the spell seems to work. As the statue jumps to life, raising its ax as it prepares to spilt the Dark Lord in two, a peal of high cold mirthless laughter emanates from Voldemort. “Is that really the best you can do?” he laughs, not even bothering to look over his shoulder as he blasts the suit of armor into oblivion. If he had looked, he would have seen the other results of my slightly botched incantation. The lego bricks from the walls are coming apart and being reconstructed into all sorts of machines and animals. As Voldemort raises his wand for the kill, a newly built lego car runs into one of his Death Eaters. The other to Death Eaters turn to blast the lego beasts that were about to attack them. The affects of my spell spread along the walls and the speed at which the lego animals are constructed accelerates quickly. Soon the Death Eaters are overwhelmed, but Voldemort glides into the air, still blasting the attacking lego creations, a dozen at a time. Watching the Dark Lord rise into the air, I notice the ceiling for the first time. Instead of collapsing on top of me and my enemy’s when the walls disappeared, the ceiling pieces had built themselves into bugs, birds, dragons, and hippogriphs. Now they attack Voldemort and tear him to pieces. As the final pieces of Voldemort fall to the floor, the walls and ceiling quickly rebuild themselves, leaving no evidence that anything had happened except the remains of Voldemort, his minions and a heavily damaged suit of armor. “I must have activated one of Hogwarts’ ancient defenses,” I say in amazement.

  28. Robert

    Your grip tightens around your wand as you raise your arm and shout: “Decreaseius Valueus!”

    The new Voldemort minifig is suddenly packaged in a cheap $12 Lego set so he can no longer be sold on Ebay for a whopping $20 or more. Ebay users everywhere are enraged at the decrease in Voldemort’s value. Just as Voldemort is about to kill Harry, the angry Lego collector grabs Voldemort and puts him in storage.

    Dominantibiofraglegous! Nothing seems to happen. Voldemort raises his wand, but suddenly, you are transformed into the most powerful wizard. You are now a master against the life of lego. (I used roots from English class.)You have 5 minutes and 37.568 seconds to beat Voldemort. You raise one of you wands. Voldemort doesn’t think that a mere child could defeat him. He takes another step forward. Suddenly, 3 jets of green light fly from the tip of the wand. Surprised, Voldemort ducks and those lights hit the death eaters and they melt. Frightened by you, Voldemort runs away to defeat another wizard. As he turns his back on you, you aim your wand and a bolt of green light shoots out once again. Voldemort melts like the others. You have won.

    Dominantibiofraglegous- It makes you a master against the life of lego.
    Domin means master.
    Anti means against.
    Bio means life.
    Frag means break.
    Lego means play well.

    Sorso Pyxis!

    [Latin for to sort & box, (possibly)]

    Instantly, Voldemort and his minions are broken into their component pieces which are then arranged in small see-thru boxes by type and color.

    Happiness reigns at Hogwarts.

    It blocks the person who’s trying to get you by building a wall of Legos around them, and it also blocks his companions, and you cannot Apparate or Disapparate from within it. If he tries to break the wall, he will come apart into his Lego pieces.

    May 20, 2011 at 7:27 pm

  33. “Adhevisous Aybeiesian!” The evildoers suddenly find their feet stuck to the studs on the ground, unable to walk. But that’s the least of their problems- their arms and hands are stuck in place as well, prohibiting them from casting any spells! With a gleeful grin, I run to alert my wizard friends of my skillful spell work.

    Adhevisous; that is adhesion, and Aybeiesian; pronounced like ABS –ian, ABS being the plastic Lego is made of. Therefore, the Lego parts stick to each other so strongly as to eliminate motion in the minifig’s arms.

    LEGO Explodius!

    You know how to contact me.

    May 21, 2011 at 8:12 pm

  36. “Toyus Leego Minfigus”

    Toyus Leego Minfigus turns the enemy into a little Toy Lego Minifigure.

    Then I take there little wands and snap them in half!
