Welcome to the Wizard Challenge, the Hogwarts Express Harry Potter Trivia Thread!
Here's how it works: I'll start us off with a Harry Potter trivia question. Someone will answer it. I'll confirm if they got it correct (or tell everyone to keep guessing if not) and the person with the correct answer will ask the next question. The questions can be as hard or as easy as you like, but keep in mind that there are some die-hard fans around here, just looking for a good challenge! :-) You're on your honor not to use aids like the HP Lexicon, though if a question stands for more than 24 hours, feel free to search the books for an answer.
Without further ado . . . let the Wizard Challenge begin!
List 12 (yes, 12) people who were at the organizational meeting of Dumbledore's Army at the Hog's Head Pub.
Oh my goodness, well lets see
8 colin creev ey
9 dennis creevey
10 dean thomas
11 seamus finnegan
12 terry boot
Wait, now I'm second-guessing myself. Let me double-check.
Ooh, glad I checked. One of the people on Polly's list was not at that meeting.
I know there were more than 12 so let's see if I can remember some of them.
1. Harry Potter
2. Hermione Granger
3. Ron Weasley
4. Neville Longbottom
5. Luna Lovegood
6. Lavender Brown
7. Parvati Patil
8. Dean Thomas
9. Cho Chang (+ one of her friends)
10. Padma Patil
11. Angelina Johnson
12. Katie Bell
13. Alicia Spinnet
14. Hannah Abbott (+1)
15. Colin & Dennis Creevey
16. Ernie Macmillan
17. Justin Finch-Fletchley
18. Anthony Goldstein
19. Terry Boot
20. Michael Corner
21. Ginny Weasley (+1)
22. Fred & George Weasley
23. Lee Jordan
I think Polly has all but one correct. I don't remember Seamus Finnigan being there. I think he joined in later on.
I think this round goes to Alishamb08, for the most complete list, and for correctly identifying Seamus as the one from Polly's list that wasn't at that meeting (he was still miffed at Harry because of their argument on the first day back at Hogwarts, I think).
Oh wow thanks guys!
Question: Name at least 5 of the characters (good or bad) that died in the epic battle at Hogwarts?
Tom Marvolo Riddle
(I had to throw that last, extra one in!)
While we're listing, list three spells that Harry learned from the Half-Blood Prince's textbook.
and not a spell, but how to use a bezoar
What gifts did Harry get for his 17th birthday and which one is traditionally given to a young wizard when he comes of age?
ooo...I miss read the question...*think, think, think*
do I/we need to list them all?
For Harry's 17th birthday he got:
the immediate use of magic summoning his glasses to him.
Ron - a copy of Twelve Fail-Safe Ways to charm witches
Molly - a watch belonging to her late brother
Hermione - a new sneakoscope
Bill & Fleur - enchanted razor
The Delacours - chocolates
Fred & George - enormous box of merchandise from their joke shop
Ginny - a kiss for Harry to remember her by
and a birthday dinner.
Did I get it all?
Wow, I can't believe I remembered all of that.
Question: Name the wood and their cores for Harry, Hermione and Ron's wands?
Harry's is holly and phoenix feather
Ron's first wand was ash and unicorn hair and the new one was willow and unicorn hair
Hermione's was vine wood and dragon heartstring
Very nice Varielle! You got it. Just one wand would have sufficed for Ron (I forgot about the second one)
What two things did Harry finally realize could keep Valdemort out of his thoughts?
Ok, I'm gonna guess...His love for others and concentrated effort (as in he made a great effort to concentrait on the events happening around him.)
You are both partly right. Grief and love. Discuss among yourselves who's the next questioner.
Sorry for the delay!
Not got the books with me so having to work from memory... Who fell in the lake on his first day at Hogwarts?
What did Harry Potter say when he was going to get his school supplies with the Weasley's while traveling by Floo powder? And where did he end up?
In the movie they made it funny by having him say diagonally but In the books I think he just choked on the ash and the flames sent him to B&B
okay, thanks.........I can think of two talking mirrors in the books. Which books and what did they (the mirrors) say
There was one in the Weasley's house that basically told him that trying to flatten his hair was a lost cause (can't remember exact words) and one in his room at the Leaky Cauldron that told him to "tuck in your shirt, scruffy"
those are the two but you have them backwards. The Weasleys one told him to tuck in his shirt and the one in his room at the leaky cauldron said "You're fighting a losing battle there,dear" When harry was trying to fix his hair. However
As it's been a while since I read the books, I"m VERY suprised I remembered at all! :)
Hagrid had many pets, but I can only recall 5 of them that actually had a name. List the five animals and their names.
give it to foggi, but they are in order, a dog, a three headed dog, a giant spider,a dragon,and a hippogriff
Oh, sorry, I missed that half of the question. What Polly said. :-)
Or, more specifically, a wolfhound, a three-headed dog, an acromantula, a Norwegian Ridgeback dragon, and a hippogriff.
List the different types of dragon from the first Triwizard challenge, and which player faced each.
Hungarian Horntail - Harry
Chinese Fireballl - Victor
Welsh Green- Fleur
Norwegian Short snout - Cedric
After the young Snape insulted Lily by calling her a mudblood, what did he threaten to do if she wouldn't speak to him?
*HINT* Harry found this out from the memory Snape gave him after Nagini had a few bites out of him.
Okay I was gonna give someone else a chance but....he said he would stay all night at the griffindor doorway until she came out to talk to him
Harry is not the neatest packer in the world and it got smashed in his trunk?
Harry tried to use it to contact Sirius after Sirius fell thru the veil. When the attempt failed, Harry threw the mirror into his trunk.
I think pollysmith is right. I believe it was already broken and Sirius was dead when he tried to use it to contact Sirius.
I must disagree Varielle, I was only joking I believe LaRay has it right!
I really wish I could come up with some good questions! I guess it's time to re-read...
How many owls visited the Durleys on the night Harry defeated the dementors on Privit Drive?
There was one more from Dumbledore to Petunia so that makes five
Were there two from the MoM?
Pollysmith is correct there were five
1. From the MOM Expelling Harry for doing Magic
2. From Arthur telling Harry Dumbledore was working on it
3. From the MOM informing Harry that he wasn't expelled, but there would be a hearing
4. From Sirius telling Harry to stay put and be good
5. From Dumbledore telling Petunia to "Remember my last"
I think LaRay has it, I think that's right, though I don't remember the last one to Petunia, maybe I need to go re-read.
Yes I checked I'm most right. I love ya all! Okay!
what was the most significant change in Bill after being bitten?
His scaring was severe, he supposedly resembled Mad-eye Moody.
He also had a new liking for rare steak.
yes the liking for rare steak was the answer I was looking for! Go for it CD!
Name the 9 members of the Order of the Phoenix who escort Harry from the Dursley's to Grimmauld Place.
Nope, not quite, 4 of those are right and 7 are wrong.
We're talking the Advance Guard in book 5, right? I don't think any Weasleys came on that mission.
Oh Duh! I didn't read the question right!
I can't think of anymore!
Spelling might be screwy.
#97 ~~ Yes, hence the note "Spelling might be screwy."
I knew some of those didn't look right, but have you ever had one of those days when things just don't look right, no matter how you type them?
Yeah that is true, sorry I couldn't help it I had to fix it, for some reason it was bothering me, though not sure why :) (I mean no harm)
No problem. I'm trying to do this while covering the front desk during main registration, so it didn't dawn on me until just now to simply edit the darn thing. DUH!
Will fix it now. :-)
Yes, 104 is right. I wonder why that one didn't show up on my screen yesterday, but shows up today? Oh well. :-)
Go ahead CaputDraconis.
Or do you mean chocolate, to combat the effects of being around dementors?
Piggybacking on that question: two people administer chocolate for Dementor confrontations of book 3 -- who are they?
oh my, lets see.........What things did Harry want to buy on the Hogwarts express until he found out there were none
I remember that he wanted to get some Mars chocolate bars but i can't remember if he wanted other kinds of muggle candies
yes "he was ready to buy as many Mars bars as he could carry" your turn Renald!
What two creatures did Harry face when he was in the 2nd Tri-wizard Tournament Task? (Spelling counts on this one)
A burning piece of wood,
some sort of metal helmet/armour,
some sort of head,
some sort of flower?
I am not sure
Well they did take a branch of everlasting fire, and I think some sort of headgear armor or something
I'll give it to CaputDraconis. The everlasting fire was Gubraithian fire and it was a goblin made helmet.
What is the password to Dumbledore's office when Harry goes there for the first time? (hint: he goes there in book 2)
#129 ~~ are you looking for the US answer (Lemon Drop), or the UK answer (Sherbet Lemon)?
Sorry I wasn't specific. I was looking for the UK answer. Sherbet Lemon.
I forgot that there was a difference.
So I guess Pollysmith got it right.
oh all right thanks! Lets see....................what did Dumbledore do to impress Tom Riddle at the orphanage
He made the toys he stole from other kids in the cabinet make noise then he set the cabinet on fire.
Is that right?
basically, I think it was the other way around but that's ok! take away,Allie!
Oh okay thanks!
At the end of the second book, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, we find out that Ginny saw Percy kissing his girlfriend. He had told her to keep it secret, but Ginny eventually tells Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron, Fred, and George Weasley. What is the name of Percy's girlfriend?
oh yeah...the spats!
okay now, Where was the python from in the first book, where in the movie?
The python comes from...
(in the book) Brazil
(in the movie) Burma
Okay, so you guys need a question....
How many dementors showed up when Harry was running home with Dudley, and who showed up after Harry did his patronus?
#152 - Yes but how many dementors were there before she showed up, that's part of the answer too.
#154 - you got it. I was looking for Mrs. Figg, but since you said her first name it counts..lol (I personally forget her first name, had to look it up again). Your turn.
Which ones of our characters were awarded an Order of Merlin (any class) and which one was frustrated in getting it early on?
Hmmm, a number of our notable warlocks had received this honor for various reasons. I don't recall any witches mentioned as having won it. One of our favorite warlocks almost got it in the Prisoner of Azkaban.
I know Dumbledore had an Order of Merlin, First Class -- and I believe Gilderoy Lockheart had one, maybe third class? I'm betting there were others, but can't think of them right off.
And are you thinking of Snape as the "frustrated" recipient, who almost got one for capturing Sirius in the third book?
Right on those two and poor Snape. Bet he got one posthumously though. There were two more major characters who also got it and several minor ones, but just looking for the big ones.
Thanks -- I wondered about Fudge, but probably wouldn't have come up with Pettigrew without a lot of pondering.
Speaking of awards, we know of at least one that Voldemort received. What was it, and why did he get it?
special services to the school since everyone thought that Hagrids pet, Aragog, had killed Moaning Myrtle
Her mother Andromeda was sister to Belletrix & Narcissa. Their maiden name was Black. Poor Sirius was the last of the male line. So, Belletrix & Narcissa were her aunts and Sirius was her second cousin (or is it first cousin once removed, I can't ever keep that straight).
He seemed kind, and had a nice voice? Also, Vernon had never seen him with is earing!
Hope you guys don't mind if I jump in... Maybe because he was protecting the minister, so Mr. Dursley figured he was important...
read_books is correct, he saw him on the television with the minister,
also he had learned to dress like a muggle, which meant losing the earring. Have a go.
What positions and/or shapes were the two bottles that Harry and Hermione drank out of in the Sorcerer's Stone (Snape's puzzle?
small round and located at either end of the line...
well I remember they were small and one was at the end of the line...
Close enough for me- One was small and one one was round. The round one was at the right end of the line.
Your go, LaRay!
Harry left or lost his invisiblity cloak more than once.
1. Name two places he lost/left the cloak
2. Why did he leave it
3. and how did he get it back.
he left it once at the top of the astromony tower after he and Hermione snuck Norbert up there and we are led to believe that dumbledore found and returned it to his bed.
Then he left it at the base of the whomping willow when he tried to save Ron from what he believed was the Grim but was actually Sirius. I believe Snape brought it in with him and I assume that Harry picked it up
What item was Ginny looking for when she unexpectedly came upon on Harry sitting in her kitchen, having breakfast.
Pollysmith is correct though I believe one of his friends told an impressionable girl that it was really a hippogriph.
Well didn't Romilda Vane ask Ginny if it was a hippogriff and she said it was a horntail?
"I told her Ron had a pigmy puff, but I didn't say where"
LOL I know that didn't help.
Ginny W is correct Romilda asked if it was a hippogriff and Ginny said it was a Horntail "much more macho"
What does Mrs. Weasley like Mr. Weasley to call her when they're alone?
Dang I'm almost out of questions.
Snape's love for Lily transformed his patronus. He mocked someone else that this happened to. Who was it and what did their patronus become?
It was tonks. I think it was taking the shape of the object of her affection. Have a go suge.
If you mean what did he will to people, he gave Harry the snitch he caught in is first quidditch match and the sword of Griffendor (not his to give according to Scrimgeour), he gave Ron his own invention of the light puter outer and to Hermione his own copy of the Tales of Beadle the Bard. All of his instruments and other effects were left to the school.
When they were children, what did Severus do to a spying Petunia that upset Lily?
I had to go drag out my copy of Sorcerer's stone. It is "Erised straeh ruoy tub ecaf ruoy ton wohs i" or I show not your face but your heart's desire.
When Hermione, Ron & Harry disapparated from Bill and Fleur's wedding where did they end up, who picked the place and why?
They ended up in the forest of dean because hermione remembered camping there with her parents once
Nooo, that came later. Think about where they were when they got in a tussle in the coffee shop.
They ended up on Tottenham Court Rd., I believe. Hermione picked it, basically because it was the first place that came to mind, and because she thought they would be safer hiding among a lot of people.
Yes, but also because her parents used to take her to the theatre near there. Have a go foggi.
Goodness!, not a game question here, but how much would Harry's Triwizard prize have translated to in terms of pounds or dollars?
233 i don't think we can translate it because we can't compare it!
What charm did Hermione use to make the galleons Dumbledore's Army used?
That's good enough for me. He was also there to investigate the Peverall family in his search for the hollows.
What was Aunt Marge's dog's name and what memory did Snape pull from Harry about the dog?
Well technically yes, but more specific? There's more to it that that.
well Harry's name was on the roll since birth (I don't remember if they all go down at birth) is that what you mean?
yes I remember reading that all children born with magical ability are recorded, but I think the parents can decide to send them or not. I know Draco talked about his mother wanting to send him to durmstrung and wasn't it Enie MacMillian who said he'd been down for Eton?
Well I meant what happens after the train ride and where they go on the boats.
Is it after the first year's get off the Hogwarts Express, they ride in the magical boats so they can see the castle at night before going to be sorted into their houses in the Great Hall.
or prehaps its that they were ushered into a chamber off the great hall to wait and all the ghosts came thru
Well I meant through the wall of ivy and into and underground lake but let's just say pollysmith got it, cause she was technically correct.
oh okay, thanks lets see.....
what dream did Harry have the day they went to the zoo? (the night before, to clarify)
since I know I am correct I will post another question
What were the deathly hallows?
Erm... not sure if you want us to list them or say what they were so;
An invisibility cloak (the one Harry's dad left him)
A stone set into a ring which could bring back a version of someone's dead loved ones.
The elder wand, the most powerful magic wand ever made. possesed by various people including Dumbledore and then later Harry.
The three Hallows were, according to legend, given to three wizard brothers by Death himself.
What is the Knight Bus fare from Magnolia Crescent to the Leaky Cauldron in London.
I want the basic fare and I also want the three extras Harry is offered and how much they cost :)
11 sickles to get to the Leaky Cauldron, 2 for hot chocolate and 2 for a hot water bottle & a toothbrush.
I believe I got that one unless somebody tells me otherwise. So...
First a non-game question that I can't remember - Did Snape ever go to see Harry at Privet Drive and if so which book and why?
Now the real question. Who escorted Harry to the train station at the beginning of each of the books?
Yes, sorry Varielle, you did get it : )
P.S. I don't remember Snape every going to Privet Drive, but I could be wrong
#270 -- Re: Snape -- The only time I remember Snape going to see Harry outside of school was at Grimauld Place in book 5.
As to your actual question, I will have to think about it and see if I can remember!
1: Dursleys in the book, Hagrid in the movie
3: Weasleys and Hermione in the Ministry of Magic cars
5: Order of the Pheonix members along with Hermione and Weasleys
6: Weasleys with Hermione
7: he didn't go on the train
Okay on that assumption I will post:
what was the name of the shop where Ron got the rat tonic for Scabbers?
Name the various bad things that Ginny did while she was possessed by Tom Riddle.
Write on the walls, kill the chickens, and petrify Mrs. Norris, Hermione. Penelope Clearwater, Nearly Headless Nick, Justin Flinch-Flechley, and Colin Creevy... Oh and couldn't she not tell anyone?
She didn't petrify them, although she enabled the Basilisk to escape to do so.
Varielle - Was the most important thing she did was enable Tom Riddle to come back as the Heir of Slytherin? Because Tom Riddle sapped her energy, he was able to confont Harry and he wanted to kill him.
Ding, Ding, Ding! Since, GinnyW had most of it I'll pass it to her if you don't mind.
The first one SS
The fifth one OoTP
and know I didn't mind
It was in Bullfinch's Mythology. I read the chapter on basilisks first...
What is Dumbledore's vault number at Gringotts?
Because he thought he had put his name in the goblet of fire without telling him.
Fleur's mom was a "beautiful, blonde woman," who looks like her daughter, and Fleur's dad was "nowhere near as attractive as his wife," as he was a head shorter and very plump, with a little pointed black beard. He is, however, very good natured.
Hmmmmmmm. I will try to make it as tough as possible (which means that it will be easy):
What was the last thing that Dumbledore ever said to Kingsley?
Oops! I forgot! I have no idea where 'George' came from.
Frank. Frank Bryce.
When Neville was a baby, how did his uncle determine he was a wizard and not a squib?
he dangled him out the window and dropped him when Auntie Enid offered him a merangue. He bounced down the walk and into the street. I think he was eight years old
Lets see,hmm a real stumper.......okay
name as many spells as you can that happened at the dursleys or in Little Whinging. You don't have to get all of them but whoever comes up with the most will get the next question
Dudley getting a pig's tail
Levitating charm by Dobby
Harry smashing a glass in Marge's hand
Harry blowing Marge up
Mundungus Fletcher apparating
The Order of the Phoenix appararating to Little Whinging
Brooms to fly Harry to Sirius's place
Howler to Petunia
Dumbledore conjuring chair
Dumledore conjuring glasses of sherry
Order of the Phoenix apparating to Little Whinging again
Polyjuice potion to make a bunch of Harry's
Brooms to fly Harry to the Burrow
That's pretty conclusive, I think!
Didn't Dudley's pig's tail happen at the shack on the rock in the middle of the sea though?
Well, it happened to a dursley so Its acceptable but I can still think of a couple more. Be sure not to repeat!
McGonogall turning into a cat
Dumbledore apparating to Little Whinging
Dumbledore using the deluminator
Hagrid showing up on Siriu's flying bike
Harry releasing the snake from the zoo, which scared the crap out of Dudley and his friend
The letter's that keep on coming to the Dursley house
The letters popping through the staircase
I can think of a few -- Arthur Weasley making the fireplace explode to connect it to the Floo network, cleaning up that mess, and dealing with the results of Dudley eating a Ton-Tongue Toffee. But I think Eris has more answers than the rest of us will be able to come up with all together!
Oops - where did my brain go? I meant the fireplace! My brain likes to rhyme things. :/ Letsee, what else? (I'm going by memory here - you gotta give me credit!).
Welllll, can you count Lily opening and closing a flower in front of Petunia when they were kids? Or Lily jumping off the swings?
The Weasley's popping through the Dursley fireplace
Harry's hair growing when Petunia tried to cut it
That's all I can think of, off the top of my head.
Eris Ok you got it. Theres only one more that I can think of and thats Sirius appering as a dog
Oh, yeah! That's right. Dang memory!
Okay, next question:
On what page number did Severus Snape reveal his patronus to Dumbledore and say the following word - "Always."
isn't that a bit of an awkward question because of all the different editions that are around?
Darn. Didn't think of that. Okay... Different question!
Please recite the Hogwarts school song, and in what style did Fred and George sing it?
They sang it like a funeral march; really slow.
Hogwarts Hogwarts Hoggy Woggy Hogwarts teach us something please
whether we be old and bald oor young with scabby knees
dead flies and bits of fluff
Partial credit to Ginny!
-By the way, if you don't remember the whole song, I don't care if you Google it. It's what I would do. ;)
Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts,
Teach us something please,
Whether we be old and bald,
Or young with scabby knees
Our heads could do with filling,
With some interesting stuff,
For now they're bare and full of air,
Dead flies and bits of fluff,
So teach us things worth knowing,
Bring back what we've forgot,
Just do your best, we'll do the rest,
And learn until our brains all rot.
yay! Now lets see....what was the name of the lady who ran the orphanage
*HINT* They kept having to modify his memory because he kept noticing too much.
I know I remember that but I can't think of the name.....I got it ! Roberts!
What was the form the Boggart assumend for Dean Thomas in Lupin's first Defense Against the Dark Arts lesson?
Ginny's first quidditch match was against which house?
(the first one she played in)
Hufflepuff (I am, likewise, guessing, as I don't have the books in front of me)
Yes! Thanks Ginny, for letting us all take random guesses. :)
Okay, lemme think. Hmmmmm. What were the names of Severus Snape's parents?
I would like to have known what they were fighting about. Maybe another book...
OK, What were the names of the players on the Bulgarian and Irish Quidditch teams at the World Cup?
*hint* Well at least one of them was Krum. Fill freee to look it up.
Ireland: Troy, Mullet, Moran, Ryan, Quigley, Connolly and Lynch.
Bulgaria: Dimitrov, Ivanova, Levski, Zograf, Volkov, Vulchanov and Viktor Krum.
(I confess I looked it up on wikipedia...)
With whom was Sir Cadogan sitting in his picture on Christmas Eve in Harry's third year at Hogwarts?
yes the drunken monks are a good trace, but there was someone else (allas, I don't have my copy at hand, so I hope I am telling nothing wrong...)
Finnaly I could lay hands on my copy again and have loked it up: pollysmith was on a very good way. There is at least one other party to be mentioned ;) I don't mind if you look it up.
KayEluned: I think Violet was with the Fat Lady in year one or two wasn't it?
*sigh* okay if this question is too hard I will just solve it shall I?
It would probably be good to move on . . . or give Polly partial credit, maybe?
Aha! I've got it! Several previous headmasters and his fat pony! (along with the monks previously mentioned)
and so I know I'm correct having taken that directly from the book I shall post.....
What was the major incidence of dissent between Ron and Hermione in their third year? Everyone will know this one
All right! Thanks Polly!
What Harry Potter book was the Cheering Charm shown in?
Whose tent did Harry, the Weasleys, etc. use at the Quidditch world cup?
What is the password to the Gryfindor common room the night that Harry arrives at Hogwarts? (In the first book.)
I think you are right, Eric. I believe it was Caput Draconis. (Latin for Dragon's Head)
1. At the zoo on his cousin Dudley's birthday (vanishing class with snake)
2. With the snake in dueling club (conjured by Draco)
3. To open the Chamber of Secrets passage (Girls Lavatory)
4. To open the main door to Chamber of Secrets (Circle door with snakes)
5. To open Salazar Slytherin's locket (when it was a Horcrux)
There's the bartender who turns out to be Albus' brother, I can't think of his name off the top of my head.
"You couldn't find two people who are less like us. And they've got this son - I saw him kicking his mother all the way up the street, screaming for sweets. Harry Potter come and live here?"
Question: Who said this quote?
Prof. McGonagall to Prof. Dumbledore outside Privet drive waiting for Hagrid.
Whats the name of the knight bus passenger who was so sick on Harry's first journey
Name a Bellatrix family member whose name is derived from Greek mythology.
uh sorry it took me so long to find a new question!
In Christmas evening in Harry's third year Dumbledore and Snape where pulling a cracker. What appeared out of it and what where they doing with it?
I believe it was a flowered bonnet which dumbledore immeadiately donned?
a hat is a good way but it was not flowery :) hint: think of the boggart and Neville
yes I looked it up again just yesterday to be absolutely sure. It is in the chapter "Firebolt". :) but it's your turn however
okay lets see....... who was the first person
harry ever saw from his own world even tho he didnt know it
His parents. He was a baby at the time, so he didn't know it.
I don't know - is that the answer you're looking for? :(
No that was not the answer I was looking for altho that is truely the correct one but I meant in Book one
Hagrid, I think. Because Hagrid was the one to pick him up from Godric's Hollow.
clarifying more: A person that Harry remembered seeing in the course of a day
Who bowed to Harry!
All right, my question is: who is the first Weasley to be spotted and described in the first book?
In Chamber of secrets what order did the weasleys and Harry go thru the barrier to gate 9 &3/4
I think one was Percy, Mr. Weasley, the twins, Ginny and Mrs. Weasley, and technically Harry and Ron never really went through. Then in the movie was it Percy, the twins, Ginny and her parents, then Harry and Ron crashed?
Sorry for the delay!!
What color was Tonk's hair the first time Harry saw her?
ErisofDiscord has it.
When Tonks first arrived at the Dursley's, her hair was purple, but she decided it made here look "Peaky" and changed it to bubble gum pink while she was helping Harry pack.
Thank you, LaRay! My question is:
What is the first of Adalbert Waffling's Fundamental Laws of Magic?
Something like that. Here is the law:
"Tamper with the deepest mysteries – the source of life, the essence of self – only if prepared for consequences of the most extreme and dangerous kind"
I think I'll hand it over to you, read_books, as your answer is close. :)
Thanks! Okay... how about
What is Newt Scamander's (the author of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) full name?
Professor Newton Artemis Fido "Newt" Scamander, because obviously I will name my future son Fido. :)
Yup! You're turn!
I hope you're future son likes the Harry Potter books! :)
Of course he will! Who wouldn't? :D
The next question is: In "A Very Potter Musical" how did Harry Potter defend himself against the Hungarian Horntail?
(It's a Harry Potter related question - I can ask it, even if it wasn't J.K. Rowling created :P )
*flips through the rules and regulations book* hmmm... guess you are right its a valid question.
It was a YouTube sensation of a bunch of a college putting on a musical based on Harry Potter. It paid homage and also lovingly made fun of the series. It's over two hours long and I thought it had its moments of funniness. It's on YouTube. I do know that Darren Criss, one of the Glee actors (I don't watch the TV show, so I'm not sure who he plays) starred as Harry Potter.
Hey, here's a Wikipedia page on it! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Very_Potter_Musical
He played a guitar and sang a song about himself and his life. In the end, the dragon slept. (I just watched parts of the musical on YouTube. It's very funny, but I have difficulties understanding the actors, especially while they are not singing, because they speak so low.)
