fluffball,
I think this one was most important. That the three brothers were inventors is an interesting thought. One question, if these were invented, but not given by Death, how is it that the instructions for these were never found? The fact that all three survived all this time, leads me away from the man made objects, even if it was a Wizard. The stone I can understand but the other two are from materials that can deteriorate. I would think, especially the cloak, would be shared. But then again, not. The last question is because just who was following Ignotus, and who did he shed the cloak for? If not Death? Fascinating!

Author's Response: I think that the quest that the three brothers had, as inventors, when they made the Deathly Hallows, was a private one. They wouldn't have wanted people to find out how to make what they had, or, indeed, to replicate it themselves. In my opinion, they did away with the blueprints once they were successful. I don't think the inventions are completely impossible to destroy, but just incredibly powerfully magical. We've seen powerfully dark objects that are incredibly difficult to destroy (horcruxes), so I figure that light or even neutral magic could do the same, if strong enough. I view the deteriorating similarly.

It's up to your imagination as to who was following Ignotus. It could be someone near and dear to him, or someone he'd never met. I still think of it as shedding the cloak for death because, even though death was not a person, he still spent his life striving to defeat it. I saw the ending as him finally coming to terms with the idea of death.

Hope that helps!

I really appreciate all of your reviews :)
