Please help me remember - Is this from the movie or the book? Mafalda Hopkirk 05:18, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

Nonsense Spells

I don't think this spell should be categorized under nonsense spells. It did what the spell said, the object/person/animal was thrown into the air. Just because Gilderoy Lockheart used it in a useless way doesn't mean it's a nonsense spell, does it? This spell could be used by other witches and wizards to lift someone in the air when they can't reach something, to pass an obstacle, etc... --TheBook — (talk | contribs) 16:08, July 11, 2010 (UTC)

I agree. -Smonocco 16:36, July 11, 2010 (UTC)
Agreed and fixed. Just because Lockhart used it incorrectly doesn't make it nonsense. -JDRooDigger 12:51, August 8, 2011 (EST)

Image

Can someone upload a moving picture of Lockhart using this spell? This isn't actually seen. And possibly move the current image elsewhere on the page? --94.191.185.123 18:48, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

Subtitles

I understand that the movie subtitles are the only resource that we have for the correct spelling of spells' incantations, but I'm actually a bit baffled that this is what it produced. It seems clear, to me at least, that Lockhart says something to the effect of "Volate Ascendere" (I think at least the presence of a V can be agreed on here), which would make sense, considering its etymology; Volate means "hurry" and ascendere means "to ascend", and could also be thought to mean "upwards". If we take it to be "Vola Te Ascendere", then it could be translated as "You fly upwards". Can an overide of the subtitles be allowed here? 68.32.132.28 01:46, June 30, 2013 (UTC)

No. We have set precedence on the matter of what the subtitles say vs. what any given viewer claims to hear on at least two other occasions (Repello Inimicum rather than Repello Inimigotum and Vera Verto rather than Fera Verto). Using any other spelling than what the subtitles (or another official source) transcribes it as is original research. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 01:59, June 30, 2013 (UTC)
