Horcruxes cause Harry Potter a whole world of trouble... but are they to blame for Harry's terrible childhood? Tumblr user Graphic Nerdity has a pretty interesting theory...
Yes, yes they do.
... not to mention diaries.
Also, they turn Ron into a kind of crap Frodo.
They chat up underage girls (bad Riddle!)
Their crimes against noses know no bounds.
I mean, the Dursleys are pretty horrible...
Maybe this horcrux-made-the-Dursleys-jerks theory holds water?
My fave comments from the Imgur thread so far include:
TheFriendlyGhostHunter's South Park reference:
The weasleys get affected so strongly because gingers don't have souls, so Voldemorts soul piece takes over until stopped.
TheKoalaBear's crossover thought:
Yooooo, doesn't that mean the One Ring is like Sauron's Horcrux??
... and the bold snark of youaresoverywrong:
So why isn't Harry a self involved little twat? OH WAIT
What do you think of the theory, Potter fans?
