Name the three Black sisters, cousins to Sirius, one of them good, one of them bad, one of them could have gone either way. :)
Narcissa was married to Lucius Malfoy, Bellatrix was married to Rudolphos Lestrange, and Andromeda was married to Edward "Teddy" Tonks.
very good! Isn't it odd that we know a lot about Lucius and ted Tonks but not much about Rudy?
yes, i wonder whether he died or something before the books took place.
What vault was the philosopher's stone hidden in at Gringots?
Which one was good, bad, and which could have gone the other way?
Narcissa Bellatrix and Andromeda
In my opinion Narcissa could have gone either way. Bellatrix was clearly bad and Andromeda (Tonks' mom) seemed to be a good egg.
Whoops, I forgot I answered that! Okay new question:
When Harry first met Professor Quirrell, what reason did Quirrell give for visiting Diagon Alley that day?
What creatures infested Mrs. Wesley's garden? and how were they gotten rid of?
Gnomes infested the garden, which could be gotten rid of by throwing them out by their hair.
What happens when a boy tries to go into the girls dormitory in Gryffindor?
The stairs turn into a slide which deposits them back into the common room.
What was the subject of the essay Harry was writing for History Of Magic in the summer holidays prior to his third year at Hogwarts?
Witch Burning in the Fourteenth Century was Completely Pointless - discuss.
What was the Black family motto?
When discussing Harry's kissing Cho, what did Hermione liken Ron's emotional range to?
I can't list all of them off the top of my head, but I think there's Travels with Trolls, Magical Me, Break with a Banshee, Vacation with a Vampire (or maybe it's voyages?) ... somebody else fill in the rest!
All right -- which professional Quidditch team does Cho Chang root for?
Nope, not them either. Hint: she was wearing one of their badges in Order of the Phoenix, prompting Ron to ask if she'd always been a fan, or just jumped on the bandwagon since they started winning.
What was the first password harry learned to get into the griffindor comman room?
Also, if there's any John Green fans, Paper Towns is being made into a movie.
He's Padfoot to the marauders, or Snuffles when he's on the run and Harry, Ron, and Hermione have to use a code word to talk about him.
I have a good question in mind and I don't want to forget it, so I'm going to post it now:
The house-elves have another name for the Room of Requirement -- what is it?
The come and go room? If that's it someone else please go, I'm leaving today on vacation and won't have access for two weeks.
What disease did Ron fake in order to avoid returning to Hogwarts in Year 7?
Oh, for goodness' sake, I forgot to post a question!
In addition to the Acromantula venom, what other valuable item did Slughorn get on the night of Aragog's funeral?
Was it tentacula seeds? When Harry found him stealing (sorry, borrowing) them in the greenhouse?
That wasn't the answer I had in mind, but it's technically correct. Do you want to ask the next question, or does anyone want to take a crack at guessing the answer that I had in mind?
I'm leaving town, so Phil can have it, unless you want to hold out for a different answer.
I'm away for the weekend as well so if someone else gets your answer then they can carry on, if no-one's got it by Monday then I can set a question.
Since no takers, I'm back, so here's your question.
What was Cho Chang's mother's job?
*Hint* It was one of the reasons that prompted her tearful episode with Harry.
She works at the Ministry, right? But I can't remember exactly what her position was without looking it up. Or was it Marietta's mother who worked at the Ministry?
Which two Aurors did Fudge bring with him to confront Dumbledore in Order of the Phoenix?
What did it signify when a deatheater left the dark mark in the sky?
Not sure on the first word but it's something like 'Not my daughter, you bitch!'
OK easy one for you.
What number vault contained the Philosopher's (or Sorcerer's, if you're American) Stone?
Maybe not that easy! It was 713.
How about this one :
Which Hogwarts ghost was killed by the Basilisk?
A new mini-biography about a minor HP character has just been published by Rowling. Who is it and what was their vocation?
Oh, thanks for reviving the thread. I'll keep it going with an answer: Celestina Warbeck the singer?
Next question: What was the first thing Hermione ever said to Harry and Ron?
When Voldemort was seeking info on the elder wand, who was the foreign wand maker he visited and how many people did he kill during that visit, according to Harry's vision?
Gregorovich was the wand maker. Don't know off hand how many people he killed though.
Also, I have a note about one of the answers given a while ago. Harry whispers "I'm READY to die," not "I'm about to die," when he whispers to the snitch to get it to open. I could be wrong, but I'm fairly certain.
Oh, and I think I have an answer for the Gregorovitch question. Voldemort killed a German woman and her two children as well as Gregorovitch himself, so the answer should be 4 (including Gregorovitch), right?
Hint: there are 7, two of them were people, and one was an accident.
and then Harry's noggin
Very close. You have all of the objects correct, and technically both of the people as well, though there is a different person I was looking for that is discovered well before Quirrell. Also, you've got them in order of destruction. The order of discovery is slightly different. I don't mean when we discover them as a horcrux, just when we first see them in the series.
You don't have to look it up if you don't want to. Last hint: Harry is in the wrong place (he wasn't discovered last), and Quirrell isn't the second person. The rest are exactly right.
Does everyone give up? I'll give you all a bit more time, but then I'll have to give the answer so someone else can have a turn asking.
Ok here's the answer:
Nagini the Snake
Ok someone else is free to have a go now.
What notable creature located in the maze in Goblet of Fire was sadly missing from the movie version?
Is that the Sphinx? Can't remember if that was in the movie or not?
Who led the group of Snatchers that captured Harry, Ron and Hermione in Deathly Hallows?
(Note - the book and the film have different answers to this question - I want both names!)
I think in the book it was Fenrir Grayback and in the movie it was Scabior played by the very handsome Nick Moran.
What was Kreacher making for dinner the day that Harry, Ron and Hermione didn't make it back from the Ministry?
Oh tut tut! The ingredients make use of a certain type of organ meat. Something rarely seen stateside.
Perhaps I should have specified "in the books," because you would be right if the question were pertaining to the movie. Want to guess again?
After everyone was safe at home following the terrifying events of the Quidditch World Cup, what did Hermione give Mrs. Weasley to drink to calm her down?
*hint #3 - Miss Granger put a shot of something extra in this hot beverage.
*hint #4 - the shot was the wizarding version of an alcoholic drink famously distilled in Scotland.
*HINT - They initially turn up mid-way through the series, though they were certainly around the Ravenclaw common room.
What is the name of Percy's owl? (Not the family owl, the one belonging specifically to Percy.)
Sorry about the delay!
Who gave Katie Bell the cursed opal necklace in Book 6?
Not quite! Maybe I should have specified--who DIRECTLY gave Katie Bell the cursed opal necklace in Book 6?
Who were the last three masters of the Elder Wand? (I'm not talking about people who used it, i.e. Voldemort, but the actual masters...)
Correct! Apologies for the lateness... Looks like the next goes to meghanas!
Harry talked to a snake in the zoo in the first book--what country was the snake from?
It was bred in captivity, although the book doesn't specify where that was but the implication is that it was in the UK. The species was indigenous to Brazil though, if that's what you're after?
Yeah, that's what I meant! Just because the book talks about it being Brazilian a few times. Your turn now!
Hint - It involved the creation and quick destruction of a flock of birds.
Very close, I'll give it to you. It's actually Oppugno but it could certainly be heard as Repugno.
Oh come now, it gets mentioned more than a few times. Her middle name is the same as another major character.
*sigh* It is Ginevra Molly Weasley.
Somebody else come up with a question.
An easy one then, who used Harry's wand to make the dark mark at the quidditch world cup?
To conceal his identity, Buckbeak's name was later changed to what?
