Text Transformation Harry Potter transformed into Gothic Literature. [Intro to Quirrel. pale nervous young man] Harry stepped into the last chamber and a shiver ran down his spine, he stood still for a moment surveying the chamber, the dark damp walls trickled with water, the ceiling towered above him, and the torches flickered from the other end, Harry couldn't make out to much so he took a few paces forwards the light. The light illuminated a figure and as Harry got closer the shadowy figure became clearer. The noticeable turban assured Harry it was Quirell; he was wearing long robes, which slightly floated, above the stone floor. He posture was strong and bold facing towards Harry his face was shadowed as the flames unsteadily flashed behind him they danced upon the edges of his robes. Harry stopped and stood still silently he was bewildered and astounded at this, he couldn't believe it was Quirell; this meant that it was Quirell that had been trying to kill him, not Snape. ...read more.


A flash of fear swept across Quirell's face and he shivered suddenly, Quirell turned back to the mirror engaged in it, he cursed under his breath. Harry tried to get closer to the mirror so he could get the stone before Quirell did; he leaned over slightly and fell over on the cold hard slabs of stone. Quirell didn't notice he was busy talking to himself. To Harry's horror a voice within Quirell said "use the boy... use the boy". Quirell riveted on the sport turned to look at Harry and clapped his slim hands together the ropes that were binding Harry fell off Harry rose to his feet.

Voldemort screamed and Quirell let go and hunched over in pain, where Quirell's hand had touched Harry they were now blistering, Quirell quickly lunged towards Harry again knocking him to the floor, Quirt ells hands grasped Harry's neck, Harry was in pain his scar burned, yet he could see that also Quirell was in pain. Quirell's hands were bright red ands blistered all over, He let go Harry was astonished, Quirell realised it was no use touching him so he raised his hand to perform a deadly curse, but Harry was impulsive he jumped up and grabbed Quirell's face, Quirell rolled off screaming in agony, then Harry knew for definite Quirell couldn't touch his bare skin, he tried to keep hold of Quirell to keep him in pain to stop him doing a deadly curse, Quirell tried to shake Harry off but Harry clung on tightly, the pain in his head grew and grew he could only hear Quirell's terrible shrieks and yells. He felt Quirell's arm wrenched form his grasp, he knew all was lost and fell down into blackness, down... down ... down ...read more.
