20. Do we see it in a Potions class? No.

Potty Game: 20 Questions, Set #2, Game #85

Post  Potteraholic on Sun Mar 27, 2011 5:52 pm

Elanor - Apr 12, 2009 8:34 pm (#294 of 2994)
Edited by Potteraholic Aug 25, 2009 9:17 am

1. Is it a person? No
2. Is it magical? No
3. Is it a thing? In itself, it is not. However it can become one.
4. Is it in the first three books? No
5. Is it/he/she in the last 3 books? Yes
6. Is it in all of the last three books? No
7. Is it alive? No
8. Is it in DH? Yes (but not only)
9. Is it some kind of entity-I am thinking about Ghosties and Ghouls and stuff like that? No
10. Is it also in HBP? No
11. Is it a concept ... like love? No (although this idea might put you on the right track)
12. Is it an object or part of an object? No. (I'm sorry, I can't explain more without giving the answer away. It is not an object yet somehow it can become part of an object.)
13. Is it the Soul-bit that goes into a Horcrux? No
14. Is it the anger Harry feels against Dumbledore? No
15. Does it go into or come out of the pensieve? No
16. Is it in GoF? No
17. Is it some kind of material? No
18. Is it thoughts of some kind? Well, it all depends on the definition of "thought". There is one meaning of the word that may be close enough to fit (not the first meaning of it though).
19. Is it visible for wizards? Let's say that in the scenes it appears it is visible. However, in itself, it is not something material.
20. Would it be the thoughts that attack Ron, both in the brain room and from the locket? No, it's not that kind of thoughts. However this is a brilliant idea for a future 20 questions game.
21. Is it what Harry sees when he is reading Voldemort's thoughts while inside Nagini? No
22. Is it the voice in the Ravenclaw Tower door that asks you a question? No
23. Is it the prophecy? No
24. Is this nonmaterial thing something that concerns (or affects, or interacts with) someone other than Harry? Yes (although he is the one seeing it in the scenes mentioned in question 19)
25. Does this non-thing become a thing as a result of a spell or incantation? I guess it could, and it probably did in the present case, but it doesn't have to. (like one doesn't need magic to wash the dishes but that doesn't mean it can't be done magically and, if it's at the Burrow, it is then probable it is done by magic)
26. Does it interact with an adult? Edit: (Or does an adult interact with it?) When we first see it, yes. But in itself it concerns more a group than one person.
27. Is it the scar on the back of Harry's hand that says "I must not tell lies"? No, but that track of thoughts could lead you to the answer...
28. Is it connected with Umbridge? No but this kind of question may help you a lot!
29. Is this topic some sort of action or activity? No (and it is not a verb that becomes a noun either)
30. Does it have something to do with the Battle of the DoM? No
31. Is it the Dark Mark? No
32. Is it the smoky apparition that appeared over DD's little silver instrument where he said, "Yes, but divided in essence?" No
33. Do we see this thing/non-thing in different locations in the two books? No. We see it at the same location (if not at the very same place at this location)
34. Do we see it at 12GP? Yes!!!
35. Is it the horcrux in the locket? No
36. Is it the image of Moody seen at 12GP? No
37. Is it connected to Sirius in some way? Yes!
38. Is it the fragment of mirror that Harry carries with him in his moleskin pouch? No
39 bis. Is it the image of the blue Dumbledore eyes Harry sees in that fragment of mirror? No
40. Is it the communication possible via this magical mirror Sirius gave to Harry? No
41. Is it the Patronus messages that come to 12GP--in OotP to notify Order members that the kids were at the Ministry and in DH to notify the kids that the Weasleys are okay? No. the "group" is not the trio or the order (and it is not something ghost-like either).
42. Is Kreacher involved with whatever it is somehow?
43. Is the "group" the Black family?
44. Is it the Black family tree?
45. Is it the Black family motto, Toujours Pur?

It is!!!! Congratulations Soli!

A motto is not something material, yet it can be when it is written down/painted/embroidered on a family tree or crest. We see it in the OotP on the Black family tree and in the DH in Regulus's bedroom.

Next game is yours Soli!

shepherdess - Apr 22, 2009 6:38 pm (#444 of 2994)

1. Is it a person? No
2. It is magical? No
3. Is it seen in more than one book? No
4. Is it an object? No
5. Is it a place? Yes
6. Is it in one of the first three books? Yes
7. Is this place a family residence? No
8. Do we see it in book 3? No
9. Do we see it in PS/SS? No
10. Is it located in London? No
11. Is it a special room? No; not a room
12. Is it in the Hogwarts area? Yes
13. Is it a shop? No
14. Is it a green house? No
15. Do we actually see a character in this place as opposed to only hearing someone tell about it? We don't actually see the character inside the place.
16. Do we see the character flying over the place then? No. By the way, I'm using the term "character" rather loosely here.
17. Is this place actually somewhere inside the Hogwarts grounds? Yes
18. Is the place out in the open air? No
19. Is (are?) the character(s) student(s)? The character is definitely not a student!
20. Is this place within or a part of the castle of Hogwarts? Yes
21. Is the character Fluffy? No, but you're headed in the right direction
22. Is it Professor Snape's dungeon/potions classroom? Umm...no, not exactly, but you're almost there.
23. Is it the forbidden corridor (the one where Fluffy is guarding the trap door)? No
24. Is the place smaller than a room? Yes
25. Is the 'character' human? No
26. Is it the room where Hagrid was raising the young Aragog?

Yes; Freshwater! It's the cupboard that Hagrid had Aragog in. We don't actually see the inside of the cupboard, or anyone or anything in it, but we see Aragog coming out of it. That made answering some questions a little tricky.

It's your turn!

4. Is it purple? No....at least, not all of it! I recall some of the bubbles or waters being different colors....

Solitaire - Apr 28, 2009 7:37 pm (#520 of 2994)
Edited Apr 28, 2009 8:39 pm

1. Is it a person? No.
2. Is it a creature? No.
3. Is it magical? No.
4. Is it a place? No.
5. Is it a spell? No.
6. Is it an object? Yes, it is.
7. Is it owned/used by a student, as opposed to an adult? It belongs to a student, yes.
8. Is it a Pigmypuff? Nope, sorry!
9. Is it a personal item, as opposed to something for school? Hm ... yes, it is personal, and it is not used for classes.
10. Is it the Invisibility Cloak? No, sorry. (see #3)
11. Is the student a Gryffindor? Yes!
12. Do we see it in PS/SS? No.
13. Is it multi-coloured? No.
14. Is it something likely to be banned by Filch if he knew about it? Under normal circumstances, I doubt it would even be noticed.
15. Is the student it belongs to a male? Yes. Sorry, Shepherdess. I was at school and began working on the post before you ever posted. Since I didn't have my "sticky" at school, I had to go into the "source" so as to not have to totally reformat things all over again. Once I submitted it, I don't think I checked again, as I was busy with kids by that time. Again, sorry!
16. Does it move on its own in any way? No. (see #3)
17. You said "under normal circumstances", does it mean we see it under "special/unusual" circumstances? Yes. Additional information: This mundane thing only becomes important because of something that is happening at the time.
18. Does more than one person have an object of that kind? Well, we do not hear about anyone else having such a thing, but it is certainly nothing special in itself.
19. Do we see it in more than one book? We do not see the thing itself again ... although it is "connected" to something that occurs in all of the books.
20. Does it belong to Harry? No.
21. Is it an item of clothing? No.
22. Is it bought in a shop? No.
23. Is it a pair of Uncle Vernon's socks? LOL Nope!
24. Does this object belong to Ron? No.
25. Do we see this thing in Harry's dormitory? Well, it does start there, although we do not see it; we hear about it plenty, though.
26. Is it the list of passwords that Neville loses in PoA? YES, it is!! Congratulations!

1. Is it magical? Yes.
2. Is it a witch or wizard? Yes.
3. Is it an object? No.
4. Is it related to the Dark Arts? Almost certainly "no".
5. Is this a male? No.
6. Is this magical person an adult? Yes.
7. Do we see him/her in more than one book? No, she is in only one book, I believe.
8. Is she a member of Hogwart's staff? No.
9. Is it Amelia Bones? No.
10. Does she work in Diagon Alley? Not work....no.
11. Do we see this witch actually perform any magic. No.
12. Do we see her shopping in Diagon Alley? She is not shopping, no.
13. Is this witch Doris Crockford, whom Harry meets in PS/SS? YES! I love her enthusiasm when meeting Harry....she keeps getting in line to shake his hand...3X!

Wow, Solitaire! Here I'd thought I'd found a truly obscure HP person and was worried that folks might get cranky about it taking so long to guess... ...guess I didn't have to worry about that!

Thanks for the tip, BTW. I don't have Mac (funny how teachers seem to buy whatever system their school district uses so as to be compatible when doing work at home!) so I don't know what a "sticky" is. But I don't retype the list each time...I've been copy/pasting from previous posts. However, the page breaks don't seem to copy so I have to add those at the end of each line....

Edited May 14, 2009 9:35 pm

1. Is it a person? No
2. Is it magical? No
3. Is it a place? Yes
4. Is it a thing? It is not an object but "a thing" might qualify in the way that it is quite a material place.
5. Is it located at Hogwarts? No

7. Is this "place" portable? No

9. Does this place have more than four walls? Yes
10. Is it a building? Yes
11. Is it a workplace for anyone? Yes

13. Has Harry ever entered this building? Yes
14. Does somebody live in this building? If you mean it is the usual residence of a character: no. If you mean it is a place suitable for living: yes.

17. Do we read about this place in more than one book? No
18. Is it mentioned in DH? No

Congratulations Julia! It was the Railview Hotel indeed! Next game is yours.

Julia H. - May 20, 2009 12:52 pm (#751 of 2994)
Edited by Potteraholic Aug 25, 2009 12:10 pm

1. Is it a person? No.
2. Is it an object? Yes.
3. Is it a magical object? I don't know about any magical properties but it belongs to the wizarding world.
4. Does it belong to a specific person as opposed to an institution? Good question ... I would say both.
5. Can you carry it around? Yes. [/color]
6. Do we see it in more than one book? Yes.
7. Do we see it in all 7 books? No, at least I don't recall.
8. Is it a household item? No.
9. Do we see it in the first three books? Yes.
10. Is it a book? No.
11. Is the "institution" (question 4) it belongs to Hogwarts? Yes.
12. Is it smaller than a grown up person? Yes.
13. Can it be considered a piece of jewelry? Yes, I think it can. At least by some.
14. Is it the jewels that are used to determine each house's points? No, they are not jewels in that sense.
15. Did they once belong to a founder of Hogwarts? No, I don't think they could own them as others could.
16. Is it one of Dumbledore's? Yes, Dumbledore had one.
17. Is it a wizarding watch that we saw on DD in PS/SS and like Ron received for his 17th birthday? No, it is not.
18. Your enigmatic answer to #13 leads me to ask....is this some sort of embellishment on the skin, such as a tatoo or scar? No.
Clarifying the enigmatic answer: It is not a piece of jewelry, but it is apparently considered to be some kind of jewelry (and treated as such) by one character at least ...
19. Is it spectacles, like DD's silver moon spectacles? No, not spectacles.
20. Is one of these things (it sounds as if there were more of them in the series) in the possession of a house elf? No, house elves don't have any of these objects (but you are right that there are several of them).
21. When DD had one, did we learn of it or see it in only one book? I think we learn of it implicitly in one book but I don't think we actually "see" it.
22. Is it the scar on Dumbledore's knee that is a map of the London Underground? No.

Hint: There are several of these items and it is worth finding out who have them.

23. Is it the Time-Turner that Hermione wore on a chain around her neck? No, sorry.
24. Does Dumbledore use his as jewelry? We never see Dumbledore use it.

Perhaps it would be a good idea to abandon the Dumbledore line: He has had so many things and this object is not what you would first associate with Dumbledore, even though it is very much in character for him to have it.

25. Does Harry ever use one? No, not Harry...
26. Do we ever see one of the Trio use one of these nonmagical items? Yes!
27. Is one of these items owned by an adult (vs. a Hogwarts student)? No, not an adult vs. a student...
28. Do we see Muggle-born Hermione use this non-magical item? Yes, we do.
29. You have said this item makes an appearance in books 1-3. Do we see it in books 4 or 5, as well? Yes. I think the object makes its most important appearance in book 5. As for book 4, I don't remember seeing the object itself, but it is possible that we catch a glimpse of it somewhere.
30. Did Hermione get this object as a gift (as opposed to buying it somewhere)? Yes, she got it as opposed to buying it, but I would not call it a gift.
31. Is it a fancy quill, like the fancy black and gold one Hermione bought in Scrivenshaft's Quill Shop in Hogsmeade ... in OotP? No.
It is worth discovering other owners as well... and the purpose of the object.
32. Is this object used for school work? I can say yes if "school work" is not restricted to studying.
33. Does this object mimic another thing in appearance, like let's say a chess figure mimics a horse or a tower? No, I don't think so.
34. Is this object a Prefect's badge ... as worn by Percy (who totally considers it jewelry), and later Ron, Hermione, and others?

Yes!!! Congratulations, Solitaire!

I'm glad you agree that Percy considers it jewelry. About Dumbledore: It is mentioned in DH that he was a prefect, too, so I suppose he must have had a badge, even if it is not shown.

I look forward to your next puzzle.

Solitaire - May 24, 2009 4:39 am (#779 of 2994)

1. Is it magical? Yes.
2. Is it an object? Yes.
3. Do we ever see it at the Burrow? I don't think we actually see it there.
4. Is this object presumably at the Burrow with his/her owner at some point (something we can assume must be in the trunk of someone staying there for some time for example)? Yes.
5. Would it fit into an average pocket? (Not Hagrid's. ) It might ... we aren't given exact dimensions.
6. Is this object unique? No, we see others.
7. Is this object owned by Fred & George? No.
8. Does it belong to Harry? Yes.
9. Is it the Marauders Map? No.
10. Is it something Harry uses for a class? No.
11. Did Harry get this object as a present? Yes, he did.
12. Does this object contain other objects? No.
13. Has it been given to him by Ron or Hermione? Yes.
14. Is this object used in the fight against Voldemort? This particular one, no.
15. Is it the Sneakoscope? Yes.

Remember that the kids always thought the original pocket Sneakoscope, given to Harry by Ron, was broken because it kept going off. It was probably fine ... just being triggered by the treacherous Scabbers. Congratulations, Orion! The next game is yours!

1. Is it a person? No.
2. Is it someone/somewhere/something magical? Yes.
3. Is it an object? Yes, in a broader sense.
4. Is this magical somewhere or something at Hogwarts? Yes it is indeed!
5. Is this magical object owned/used by a student? Hmm. Neither owned nor used by but definitely by a student.
6. Is this something a location within the castle, like a room or quarters of some kind? Sort of, yes.
7. Is it unique? In this particular manifestation, yes, but generally it’s quite common.
8. Is it seen/heard of in more than one book? No, I don’t think so, but maybe it pops up again… no, I really don’t think so.
9. This is a really wild guess at this point, but is it the vanishing cabinet? No.
10. Is it the room in which everyone stows items they don't want to have found, ie: empty sherry bottles, broken vanishing cabinets, highly notated potions texts, ancient diadems, etc....? The ROR, you mean? No, it isn’t.
11. Is the student of question 5 Harry? No.
12. Is it the list of passwords for Gryffindor Tower that Neville loses --and Sirius Black finds-- in PoA? No.
13. Do we see it in one of the first three books? No.
14. Has the student of question five had a bad experience related to this object? No, not at all. To clarify: He/she/they have had many bad experiences which lead to said object, but not directly with this object because it’s totally harmless.
15. Is it the room where Nearly Headless Nick's Deathday celebration takes place? No.
16. Do we see this magical object/location in DH? No.
17. Is the student of question five a Gryffindor? Yes!!!
18. Is the student a member of the Weasley family? Naturally, Dryleaves!
19. Is the object the swamp in OotP made by the twins?

Julia, you're correct, it is the swamp. Congratulations! I'm looking forward to your new 20 questions riddle. Hopefully it's totally obscure, not in the sense of "mentioned once in passing and then never again" but in the sense of "so weird that all the answers have to have extra answers attached to them" but I don't want to put pressure on you, it's just a hope.

38. Is it the shape-shifting of the Boggart? (It is covered in Lupin's DADA class, which would satisfy #s 5 and 14, and it appears to be good for nothing.) No.

47. Is the "busiest thread of the forum" (referred to in the answer to #46) the Snape thread? At the last count, the busiest thread was the chat thread not the Snape thread.

57. Does this creature have legs at all? No it hasn't.
58. Does the ability have anything to do with the basilisk? Yes, it does, but only indirectly.
59. Can the answer be considered a sort of message? We don't see it used as a message but it must be some sort of message because I can't see no other reason why they should do it. It is certainly a message if human beings do it, whether consciously or not.
60. Is this creature (with whom it is associated) bigger than a breadbox? A bit, but not much.
61. Is it connected with more than one class? Yes, with exactly two. Or three if you stretch the meaning of this last class very liberally.
62. Could this "third class" be the Duelling Club? No! Haha!!! They would have to throw them at each other!
63. Could the third class be herbology?
64. Is one of the classes involved Potions?
65. Is it the Mandrake's ability to kill with it's cry?

Congratulations, shepherdess, it's indeed the cry of the Mandrakes!

A plant is not a creature? Huh? Did I miss some important clue in the rules? Was that the problem why it wasn't solved for so long? In that case, sorry everybody. In everyday speech every living thing is a creature, aren't they? What else would a plant be? It eats, it breathes, it reproduces, it communicates.
