I'm not sure if my memory serves me correctly, but I recall that at the end of Deathly Hallows, before Voldemort and Harry fire their final spells at one another, the latter gives the former a last shot at redemption. My question is: What if Voldemort had accepted that?
His reasons could have been many, especially if he realised that the Elder Wand was not loyal to him. Even so, what would have the magical community done to him? I understand that Dementors are pretty much universally condemned following Voldemort's downfall, but perhaps Voldemort is the one person most deserving of a Dementor's Kiss. However, what's the point in redemption if you just get what remains of your soul sucked out of you?
I'm just curious as to how the world would have reacted to a Voldemort who, after all of the pain and suffering he had caused, surrendered at the final battle. After all, doesn't Voldemort fear death more than anything?
Your thoughts please gang.
