The Elder wand is supposed to be a wand that cannot lose in duels yet
Dumbledore beat Grindewald in a duel to win the elder wand off him.
How could this be?
It's probably because Dumbledore had the most powerful magic in the
world on his side, you know love. We're shown that love reaches even
beyond death so maybe even the Elder wand wasn't powerful enough
against this force.
I did not see the duel between the two wizards, I think I had a
doctors appointment or something good was on TV. However, I think that
Dumbledore wasn't aiming to kill and did not fear being killed. The
unique power of the wand doesn't work for everyone. We do know that
the cloak worked for Harry in ways that it would never have worked for
Dumbledore. The wand worked for Harry because he was the true master
of death, was not afraid of it, and did not use it to use it to
intentionally kill LV.
A strong message that I think that JK was trying to tell us was that
things like love, kind heart, and friendship are the things that
dominate power. Once again I think that it was the fact that he didn't
aim to kill or had fear of being killed. Although, I'm sure his skill
with a wand and the fact that he has got style didn't fault him at
The fans rightly adore me !
