Has anyone ever learned what exactly Tom Marvolo Riddle did in the Horcrux Cave as a youngster that traumatized Amy Benson and Dennis Bishop into silence? I have always been rather curious about that particular topic and did not know if anyone else has heard any mention made about it by Rowling. Anyone got any idea?

I don't remember ever to be mentionet about him doing it in the cave, but only that he used his magic to levitate himself and the kids to where the cave was, that itself was what could have traumatize them. --Bluelantern 18:55, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

I thought he actually took them into the Cave, Dumbledore just mentioned that he thought the trip alone would have scared the children enough. I think Dumbledore said he actually visited the Cave with them, using magic to get them all down there, and then he did something inside the Cave that really traumatized them into silence. That's what I was curious about is what he possibly could have done inside the Cave itself that those children into never speaking of it. TomMarvoloRiddle1926 19:50, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
