So here's a happy topic for everyone. (Merry Christmas!) Can you imagine any ways that Voldemort would kill an insubordinate Death Eater that would not be instant? We have seen him (and heard him threaten to) use Nagini, but besides that, is there anything else that is plausible?
This would be very useful and would create a pretty poignant moment if I could incorporate it into a story, but I'm beginning to think it's just out of character. Voldy is a huge fan of Avada Kedavra after all. It's also not the be all and end all of my story; I have planned and can definitely write an alternate to this--I just thought it was worth a shot to see if any of you thought it was plausible.
