Mediwitch - Mar 11, 2007 6:39 pm (#2440 of 2932)

Here are the answers! I counted answers as correct if spelling was only off by one letter, but “remember the Wizard Barufio, who said “s” instead of “f” and ended up with a buffalo on his chest!”

1. The Tickling Charm: Rictusempra.

2. A charm to make the victim’s legs dance: Tarantallegra. Some of you were SO close on this one!

3. This one cuts the victim: Sectumsempra.

4. Used to restrain or tie up the victim: Incarcerous. Yes, Snape used it in the Shrieking Shack, and Umbridge tried to use it on the centaurs.

5. A jinx to glue the victim’s tongue to the roof of his/her mouth: Langlock.

6. The Leg-Locker Curse: Locomotor Mortis. So many of you guessed Petrificus Totalus, which is the Full-Body Bind.

7. A spell which enlarges the victim’s teeth significantly: Densaugeo. Poor Hermione!

8. A spell which fills the ears of people near the caster with a buzzing noise: Muffliato.

9. A curse to stop or slow an object: Impedimenta.

10. The Vanishing Spell: Evanesco.

And here are the results:

and the winner with 8 points is: Anna L. Black! Congratulations!

Columbine Fairy - Apr 17, 2007 4:19 pm (#2511 of 2932)

Ok guys, here they are **stops to listen to collective sigh of relief**. There are some hard ones, and some easy ones, I think - but I could be wrong! Either way I hope you all get as much of a giggle out of it as I did....

And the new topic is **insert drum roll here**...Luna Lovegood!

1. Name 2 items Luna is famous for wearing.

2. What subject does Professor Trelawney seem sincerely interested in at Slughorn's Christmas party?

3. What condition does Luna suggest Zacharias Smith may be suffering from?

4. What item should you carry if you are concerned about warding off Gulping Plympies?

5. What does Luna not seem to need to do as much as normal humans?

6. Help Luna out with the name she is looking for: "...but now that big Hufflepuff players got the quaffle from her, I can't remember his name, it's something like Bibble - no, Buggins - "

7. Name two of the things the Quibbler accused Cornelius Fudge of doing to goblins?

8. Who was Luna responding to when she said, "You can laugh, but people used to think there were no such things as the Blibbering Humdinger or the Crumple-Horned Snorkack!"

9. What is mistletoe often infested with?

10. What are Heliopaths?

You would think that would be hard, with only two books to work from, but I could have gone on quite easily for another ten questions! Enjoy!

* answers below *
Spoiler:
Columbine Fairy - Apr 23, 2007 8:11 pm (#2522 of 2932)

Results time! And here we go...

1.Name 2 items Luna is famous for wearing. Butterbeer cork necklace, radish earrings, spectrespecs, and I would also have accepted ‘her wand behind her left ear’.

2. What subject does Professor Trelawney seem sincerely interested in at Slughorn's Christmas party? The Rotfang Conspiracy - the theory that the Aurors are attempting to bring down the Ministry of Magic using a combination of Dark Magic and gum disease. (I'm not sure how you could be suffering from it though, Madam Pince - you might have to explain that one!)

3. What condition does Luna suggest Zacharias Smith may be suffering from? Loser’s Lurgy

4. What item should you carry if you are concerned about warding off Gulping Plympies? A Gurdyroot

5. What does Luna not seem to need to do as much as normal humans? Blink ñ everyone got this one!!

6. Help Luna out with the name she is looking for: "...but now that big Hufflepuff players got the quaffle from her, I can't remember his name, it's something like Bibble - no, Buggins - " “It’s Cadwallader!” Nobody got this one, but I was tempted to give a point for "Broboolooglee"!

7. Name two of the things the Quibbler accused Cornelius Fudge of doing to goblins? Apparently this question was harder than I thought, so I’ve modified it and given a full point for just one correct answer, which could have been: drowned, dropped off buildings, poisoned or cooked in pies (double check the menu next time you eat at the "Quibbler Cafe" !!!.

8. Who was Luna responding to when she said, "You can laugh, but people used to think there were no such things as the Blibbering Humdinger or the Crumple-Horned Snorkack!" She was responding to Lavender and Parvati, who were laughing at her appearance ñ although she assumed they were laughing at what she had said. Well done, azi, you were the only person who got this one!

9. What is mistletoe often infested with? Nargles!

10. What are Heliopaths? Great Spirits of Fire! (I’ll give half a point for “fire nymphs” and for people who remembered that Fudge (allegedly) has a personal army of them, but sorry, Ginny, I can't give you a point for "some Luna-invented creature! :-D)

Well, that was fun!

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed that as much as I did. I'll leave you to fight it out, azi and Good Evans!!

PatPat - Jun 29, 2007 2:58 pm (#2630 of 2932)

OK, here are the answers and the results. Great job, everyone!

1. What was the subject of the nasty essay Harry had to do for Snape over the summer? Shrinking potions or Shrinking solutions (But I like virginiaelizabeth's answer of "forgetfulness potion and their uses.")

2. What is the title of the book Harry sees in Flourish and Blotts that has a Grim on the cover? Death Omens: What to do when you know the worst is coming. (I gave half credit for "Death Omens" and half credit for "What to do when you know the worst is coming" but you had to have it exactly.)

3. What did Professor Lupin say to the Dementor on the train? (must have full quote.) None of us is hiding Sirius Black under our cloaks. Go. (I had to be really strict on this one. There were several variations, but I only took the exact and full quote.)

4. Why did Professor Kettleburn, the old Care of Magical Creatures teacher, retire? To spend more time with his remaining limbs. (Everyone got this one!)

5. What is the charm Lupin used to splint Ron's broken leg? Ferula (I didn't take off for spelling)

6. What day and time did Hermione have her Charms and Ancient Runes exams? Monday at 1:00PM (I gave half credit for the day and half credit for the time)

7. How many points behind Slytherin was Gryffindor prior to the Quidditch final? 200 points (Wood kept reminding Harry to catch the snitch "only if we're more than 50 points up!")

8. Give two colors of the hippogriffs in the first Care of Magical Creatures class. (Be specific.) Stormy gray, bronze, pinkish roan, gleaming chestnut, inky black (I was lenient here. I gave half point for each of the two, and I gave credit as long as you said the color, such as black instead of inky black.)

9. What is the name of Lavender's pet rabbit? Binky

10. What is the acceleration of the Firebolt that Harry sees advertised in Diagon Alley? 150 miles per hour in 10 seconds (Only Good Evans got this completely right! But I gave virginiaelizabeth half a point for "up to 150 miles per hour")

Way to go, Good Evans! See, you couldn't get out of it, after all. Your turn.

Madam Pince - Jul 10, 2007 11:59 am (#2651 of 2932)

I had a really cool idea for some questions, but it was taking too long to compile and I don't want to keep everyone waiting while I freeze-frame my DVDs. (I was going to do: Is this quote from: A) the books, B) the movies, C) both, or D) neither, and then try to be tricky by changing a word or two in the quotes -- I thought of this when thinking about movie contamination.) But alas... maybe I'll get that quiz ready in the extremely remote possibility that I should ever win again!

OK, here goes the real questions -- from The Order of the Phoenix since that's what I'm reading right now: Exact quotes for the "quote"-type questions earn a full point; "close enough" will get you half-a-point. Good luck!

1. How many owls constitute a "Peck of Owls" – i.e. : how many owls brought messages to 4 Privet Drive after the Dementor attacks?

2. What was Molly serving for dinner at 12 Grimmauld Place the night that Harry first arrived? (Four items - 1/4 point each)

3. What is Percy's middle name?

4. Professor Umbridge wrote the name of the class "Defense Against the Dark Arts" on the blackboard during the Trio's first class -- at the same time she also added a sub-title below that. What was the sub-title?

5. How much does the Hog's Head charge for a butterbeer?

6. What was written on the Christmas baubles with which Dobby decorated the Room of Requirement?

7. At St. Mungo's, there is a portrait of Urquhart Rackharrow. What did he invent?

8. When Dumbledore admits to Fudge that it was he who called the meeting of the DA, Fudge is delighted. What is the "monetary" remark Dumbledore then smilingly makes?

9. How long does Snape say it will take for him to brew a new batch of Veritaserum for Umbridge?

10. What is the spell Hermione used to mark the doors they'd already tried at the Dept. of Mysteries?

Extra Credit: What object did Dumbledore turn into a Portkey so that Harry could leave the Ministry and return to Hogwarts after the battle and the arrival of Fudge?

* answers below *

Madam Pince - Jul 16, 2007 12:02 pm (#2669 of 2932)

Well done, everyone! Sorry for the delay getting these scored, but here are the answers: (I had to be rather strict on spelling and exact quotes in order to distinguish between the top scorers, so misspellings lost you 1/2 point, and a word or two off on a quote would lose you 1/2 point, except for the Christmas baubles I made you be exact -- sorry for being so "Pince-ish"... )

1. There were five owls who came to 4 Privet Drive that night to constitute the chapter title of "A Peck of Owls" -- two from Mafalda Hopkirk, one from Arthur, one from Sirius, and Dumbledore's Howler.

2. Dinner was stew, bread, butterbeer, and rhubarb crumble with custard.

3. Percy Ignatius Weasley. (But I love the "Prat" answer...)

4. The subtitle was "A Return to Basic Principles."

5. Three butterbeers cost the trio six sickles, so the correct answer is two sickles.

6. The baubles said "Have a Very Harry Christmas!"

7. The invention was the Entrail-Expelling Curse.

8. Tried to give a hint here! The monetary quote was "It's like losing a knut and finding a galleon, isn't it?"

9. Snape said "a full moon cycle" and also "around a month" so I accepted either, and I also accepted "full lunar cycle" since it's the same thing.

10. The fiery "X" was produced with "Flagrate!"

Extra Credit: The portkey was created from the golden wizard's head from the statue in the Fountain of Magical Brethren.

Scoring was difficult -- now I know why I'm not a teacher. And the big winner in a very close race... Nathan Zimmerman!!! with 8 1/2 points!!! Congratulations!!!

Whew. Glad I don't have to do that often! Carry on, Nathan!

Columbine Fairy - Sep 9, 2007 3:09 pm (#2756 of 2932)

I'm still here guys! Sorry about the wait! I don't have illness as an excuse - does a new job count? Anyway here they are, I hope you find them worth the wait. The theme I've chosen is Harry's personal journey through the series - from a young boy filled with wide-eyed wonder to the wise young man at the end of book 7. I found it fascinating and thought Jo wrote it really well.

1. Who was the first friend Harry made upon re-entering the wizarding world?

2. How did Harry first prove that he was more than just a famous name?

3. What fear plagued Harry during his second year at Hogwarts that he never confided in Ron and Hermione?

4. What happened for the first time ever in the chapter titled "Owl Post"?

5. During their argument in their fourth year, what did Harry throw at Ron with the comment: "it might give you a scar - that's what you want isn't it?”

6. What mistake did Harry make that caused Cho to storm out on him during their disastrous-first date?

7. Who was the only person able to comfort Harry after the death of Sirius?

8. What reluctant promise did Harry make Ron on Harry's 17th birthday?

9. What event helped Harry to recognize and tame the main flaw in his personality, which had already been recognized by Hermione and Dumbledore?

10. What was Harry's last plea to his mother as he walked towards his death in the Forbidden Forest?

Columbine Fairy - Sep 18, 2007 7:12 am (#2769 of 2932)

Answers!! I must say I made it very difficult for myself by asking questions which were so subjective, but each question did have a particular answer of moment in mind so I've given marks for being close enough, or at least getting the right idea. Here goes!

1. Who was the first friend Harry made upon re-entering the wizarding world? Hagrid

2. How did Harry first prove that he was more than just a famous name? This was probably the hardest questions, but there was a moment after his second Quidditch match, when he caught the snitch in about 5 minutes, when Harry reflected: "He'd really done something to be proud of now - no one could say he was just a famous name anymore."

3. What fear plagued Harry during his second year at Hogwarts that he never confided in Ron and Hermione? That he should have been a Slytherin. I didn't give marks for being the heir of Slytherin, because he did actually discuss that with Ron and Hermione.

4. What happened for the first time ever in the chapter titled "Owl Post"? Harry received a birthday card. He had received presents before, from the Dursleys, just not "proper" ones! (note: this was the first chapter of PoA. The final chapter is called "Owl Post Again")

5. During their argument in their fourth year, what did Harry throw at Ron with the comment: "it might give you a scar - that's what you want isn't it?" A Potter Stinks/Support Cedric Diggory badge.

6. What mistake did Harry make that caused Cho to storm out on him during their disastrous first date? He arranged to meet Hermione at the Three Broomsticks and asked Cho to join them! Then, of course, laughed when he realised why she was upset - not very smooth, Harry!

7. Who was the only person able to comfort Harry after the death of Sirius? Luna

8. What reluctant promise did Harry make Ron on Harry's 17th birthday? That he would stay away from Ginny and not get her hopes up after they had broken up.

9. What event helped Harry to recognize and tame the main flaw in his personality, which had already been recognized by Hermione and Dumbledore? It was Dobby's death. Hermione had previously described this flaw as his "saving people thing" and DD confessed in "Kings Cross" that he was afraid his hothead would dominate his good heart, which it did, up until this point. While digging the grave, he is thinking about hallows and horcruxes, yet "he no longer burned with that weird, obsessive longing. Loss and fear had snuffed it out: he felt as though he had been slapped awake again."

10. What was Harry's last plea to his mother as he walked towards his death in the Forbidden Forest? "Stay close to me".

My that was exhausting! Now onto the results....

Congratulations Pat! I bequeath the next round to you!

PatPat - Sep 26, 2007 5:48 pm (#2794 of 2932)

OK, here are the answers and the results. I had to be kind of strict on a couple of them because there was such variation in the answers. A lot were close but not exact.

1) What Muggle sweet did Dumbledore offer McGonagall in the first chapter of PS? (They are standing outside the Dursleys' waiting to drop off Harry.) Sherbet lemon or lemon drop (I accepted either since it varied depending on the edition)

2) What was Dumbledore's comment after hearing that Lockhart had lost his memory from a backfired memory charm in CoS? "Impaled upon your own sword, Gilderoy!" (You had to get this exactly to get the point.)

3) What event in PoA prompted Lupin to say: "I don't think any of us have seen Professor Dumbledore that angry."? The Dementors coming onto the Quidditch pitch and causing Harry to fall from his broom

4) What did Dumbledore order (from his plate) at the Yule Ball in GoF? Pork chops

5) What two steps against Voldemort did Dumbledore recommend that Cornelius Fudge take at the end of GoF? Remove Azkaban from control of the Dementors and send envoys to the giants (Though I loved freshwater's answer of "two steps off a one step pier!" LOL!) I gave 1/2 point for each.

6) What type of chair did Dumbledore conjure out of thin air at Harry's hearing in OoP? Squashy, chintz armchair (I gave it to you as long as you got the armchair part)

7) What did Dumbledore use to shield Harry during his battle with Voldemort at the Ministry in OoP? The headless wizard from the Fountain of Magical Brethren. (you had to say that it was the wizard specifically in order to get the point.)

8) What did Dumbledore say his favorite flavor of jam was in HBP? raspberry! (My favorite too!)

9) In DH, Dumbledore stated in his will that he left Harry the snitch as a reminder of what? The rewards of perseverance and skill. (I gave 1/2 point for perseverance and 1/2 point for skill)

10) What color robe is Dumbledore wearing when he meets Harry in King's Cross in DH? Midnight blue (I gave it to you if you just said blue, but not if you gave another shade of blue.)

Congrats Phelim and Columbine! You two can fight over who gets to do the next one. Well done, everyone!

Anna L. Black - Oct 7, 2007 1:11 pm (#2822 of 2932)

My brother said to me today (he's now reading POA):

"Two more pages, and I'll be reading the chapter called "The Servant Of The Lord Voldemort". Ergh, just hearing the name 'Voldemort' makes me sick!"

So I've decided to make a list of some quotes where the name Voldemort is not mentioned. Can you recognize the speaker of each one?

1. 'My Lord, I have heard differently.'

2. 'But mostly, sir, life has improved for my kind since you triumphed over He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.'

3. 'That's probably why You-Know-Who wanted to kill him in the first place. Didn't want another Dark Lord competing with him. I wonder what other powers Potter's been hiding?'

4. '[...] forsaken by his friends, defeated at last by the Dark Lord he so unwisely challenged.'

5. 'The Dark Lord? He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named? My dear boy, that's hardly something to joke about.... Rise again, indeed --'

6. 'They'll be the first to go, now the Dark Lord's back!'

7. 'The Dark Lord's word is law.'

8. 'He's not going to like being called here for me and my old cat, is he, now?'

9. 'Never mind that, do you think he remembers what You-Know-Who looks like?'

10. 'Harry, everyone says Dumbledore's the only one You-Know-Who was ever afraid of.'

Anna L. Black - Oct 13, 2007 2:30 am (#2839 of 2932)

So, answers:

2. 'But mostly, sir, life has improved for my kind since you triumphed over He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.' Dobby

3. 'That's probably why You-Know-Who wanted to kill him in the first place. Didn't want another Dark Lord competing with him. I wonder what other powers Potter's been hiding?' Ernie MacMillan

4. '[...] forsaken by his friends, defeated at last by the Dark Lord he so unwisely challenged.' Tom Riddle (Lord Voldemort himself)

5. 'The Dark Lord? He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named? My dear boy, that's hardly something to joke about.... Rise again, indeed --' Sybill Trelawney

6. 'They'll be the first to go, now the Dark Lord's back!' Draco Malfoy

7. 'The Dark Lord's word is law.' Severus Snape

8. 'He's not going to like being called here for me and my old cat, is he, now?' Aberforth Dumbledore

9. 'Never mind that, do you think he remembers what You-Know-Who looks like?' Fred Weasley (I gave half a point to those who only remembered it was one of the twins, and didn't guess Fred)

10. 'Harry, everyone says Dumbledore's the only one You-Know-Who was ever afraid of.' Hermione Granger

Columbine Fairy - Oct 24, 2007 4:50 pm (#2860 of 2932)

Answers! Results to follow shortly...

1. What was the first death of the series, and what was the subsequent effect it had on Harry? There was a slight problem with this question, in that I didn't really phrase it correctly. Technically, James and Lily are actually already dead when the story begins, so that should be incorrect, however I am going to allow this answer as the question wasn't that specific. What I should have asked was for the first death that occurs within the time frame of the books, or after Harry returns to the wizarding world, which was the death of the unicorn in the forbidden forest, which caused Harry's nightmares to return with a hooded figure in it. So I will accept James, Lily, and the Unicorn, but not Quirrell.

2. How did Cedric get his Golden Egg from the dragon in the first Triwizard task? He transfigured a rock into a dog to distract it.

3. What was the Christmas song Sirius sang when he was in a particularly jovial mood? "God Rest Ye Merry Hippogriffs!"

4. What are the two non-magical pursuits Dumbledore enjoyed, as described on his chocolate frog card? Ten pin bowling and chamber music

5. Where did Hedwig's name come from? Harry found it in his History of Magic textbook

6. What was Mad-Eye Moody's trademark advice, and why shouldn't you stow your wand in your back pocket? "Constant Vigilance!" and because you may find your buttocks blasted off!

7. What were Dobby’s last words? "Harry... Potter..."

8. To whom did Fred Weasley address the words "permettez-moi to assister vous"? A couple of Fleur's veela cousins

9. What was the "certain ability" Tonks lacked that meant she wasn't chosen as a prefect in her Hogwarts days? The ability to behave herself

10. What was Lupin's alias on Potterwatch? Romulus

Results will be up soon. Hope you all enjoyed that round!

megfox* - Oct 27, 2007 7:36 am (#2868 of 2932)

This round of trivia is dedicated to the teachers on the Forum. It consists of questions that are related to the use and practice of magic. I tried to think of questions that could be answered in a class at Hogwarts, or by using knowledge gained during class. Yes, I love writing tests (I just hate grading them)!

1. What is the common name for the spell Evanesco?

2. What are the three D's of Apparation?

3. What is the 3rd defense of the Philosopher's Stone, what skill do you need to get past it, and where would you have learned this skill?

4. What are the effects of the Flagrante Curse?

5. When was the International Statute of Secrecy instituted?

6. Which of Jupiter' moons is covered in ice (not mice)?

7. What ingredients do you need to make the Draught of Living Death?

8. What is the favorite food of a bowtruckle?

9. Where are Red Caps found, and why are they dangerous?

10. What is bubotuber pus used for?

Bonus Question: Please answer the following essay question in complete sentences. The best answer will receive 1 bonus point. "Explain why Muggles need electricity."

I have placed an Anti-Cheating Charm on all of your keyboards. This is a closed-book and closed-Lexicon test. Please keep your eyes on your own computer screens, and make sure that you write your name on the top of your response. Your time begins... NOW! Good Luck!

megfox* - Nov 3, 2007 7:16 am (#2912 of 2932)

Okay, I have read and graded all of your answers. Since I had placed a Muffliato charm upon myself so I could do this in relative peace, I did not take any points off for all of the talking you have done while people were finishing their tests. However, had any of you been in my Muggle classroom, you all would have failed for talking!

Here are the correct answers:

1. What is the common name for the spell Evanesco? The Vanishing Spell

2. What are the three D's of Apparation? Destination, Determination, Deliberation

3. What is the 3rd defense of the Philosopher's Stone, what skill do you need to get past it, and where would you have learned this skill? The charmed Keys and broomstick, ability to fly, Flying Class with Madam Hooch (I also accepted Quidditch practice)

4. What are the effects of the Flagrante Curse? Anything you touch will burn you

5. When was the International Statute of Secrecy instituted? 1692

6. Which of Jupiter's moons is covered in ice (not mice)? Europa

7. What ingredients do you need to make the Draught of Living Death? Add powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood (I also accepted adding a sopophorus bean and valerian roots)

8. What is the favorite food of a bowtruckle? Wood lice

9. Where are Red Caps found, and why are they dangerous? Anywhere blood has been spilled (battlefields, dungeons) and they attack people who have stumbled across them

10. What is bubotuber pus used for? Cure acne

On some of the questions, I had to use my best teacher instincts and accepted some answers that were not exact. For questions that had 2 or 3 parts, you could get partial credit.

And the bonus point goes to virginiaelizabeth, for her very funny (and ever-so-truthful) essay! So her actual score is 7 1/2.

Congratulations to Phelim and PeskyPixie. You two may now arm wrestle to determine who will create the next trivia challenge!

PeskyPixie - Nov 4, 2007 8:31 am (#2926 of 2932)

Yes, I am aware that I am your favourite teacher, PatPat, and I recall your vote, Elanor. Very nice. I will not forget it.

I shouldn't be surprised at Potteraholic's decision as I also had Potteraholic's purple pet pygmy puff in my class and the two are extraordinarily alike.

Phelim, once again, I thank you for your tip about the Auror Department. (aside: How did they hear my last 'aside'? )

Now, I have permitted a few extra hours of study (aside: well, how was I supposed to know my meeting would run that long?) and advise you all to now close your books, clear your desks, and get out your quills (I have placed anti-cheating spells in the exam hall, so do not try to cheat; it will not be worth your while).

This test is not at all difficult for those well-versed and well-studied in the life of my greatly respected and sadly missed mentor who, I have noticed, is often ignored on these 'Trivia Challenges' (sheesh, what a silly Muggle term ). I have come to expect a high 'Outstanding' rate among my students and will be sorely disappointed if this batch - Miss Freshwater, what did I just say about closing your books?!

Without further ado (I have a meeting to get to afterwards), flip over your papers.

How Well Do You Know Severus Snape? ANSWER SHEET

GROUP 1

1. What is the first non-verbal spell we witness Snape perform and why does he use it? (2 marks)
=>Evanesco (1 mk), used to clean up the mess Neville makes (1 mk) by melting Seamus’ cauldron in their first potions class. Snape does look into Harry’s eyes during the first feast, but there’s no evidence that any Legilimency occurs at this time.

2. What is the final non-verbal spell we see Snape perform and why does he use it? (2 marks)
=>this question depends on each individual’s interpretation of wandless magic vs. non-verbal spells, so any spell Snape performs near the end of his battle with the other teachers, or his flooding out his memories earns a point; the second point is achieved with a good explanation of why Snape uses it.

3. Name five of Snape's friends from when he was a student at Hogwarts. (5 marks)
=>one point per name (total of 5 marks) for choosing from the following list of nine canon school friends: Lily Evans, Lucius Malfoy, (Evan?) Rosier, Avery, Mulciber, Wilkes, Bellatrix Black, Rodolphus Lestrange, Rabastan Lestrange

4. How does Snape manage to lie to the world's greatest Legilimens? (2 marks)
=> Occlumency (1 mk) and half-truths (1 mk); we have evidence of the latter in ëThe Dark Lord Ascending’ and hear from Dumbledore that Snape gives LV information while ëwithholding the essentials’ in ‘The Prince’s Tale’.

5. What is Severus Snape's preferred flavour of jam? (2 marks)
=>we’re not told/we don’t know about Severus’s jam preferences (2 mks), however 1 mark is given for sheer confusion, Ω mark for taking the time to write down a flavour of jam.

6. Sirius Black and Severus Snape hate one another from childhood to adulthood.
a) Who starts their rivalry during their first encounter aboard the Hogwarts Express in September 1971?
b) Who starts the squabble when Snape comes to 12 Grimmauld Place with news of Harry's Occlumency lessons in January 1996? (2 marks)
=> a) James Potter (1 mk) b) Sirius Black (1 mk)

7. Name three colours Snape dons as an adult. (3 marks)
=> i) black (1 mk); ii) grey (1 mk), as in his nightshirt from GoF; iii) green (1 mk), as his robes during a Quidditch match in PoA


GROUP 2

1. What is Miles Bletchley guilty of and what is Professor Snape's excuse for not punishing him? (2 marks)
=>before an important Quidditch match, Slytherin Keeper Miles Bletchley jinxes Alicia Spinnet, in front of fourteen witnesses, to make her eyebrows grow into her eyes and face (1 mk), Snape insists she must have tried a Hair-Thickening on herself (which backfires), and refuses to punish Bletchley (1 mk); marks were awarded for a general (i.e. less specific) description of this story.

2. Name four spells invented by the Half-Blood Prince. (4 marks)
=>one mark per spell (total of four marks) for choosing four of the following six spells: Sectumsempra, Levicorpus, Liberacorpus, Langlock, Muffliato and the one to make toetails grow(!)

3. Aconite is also known as, a) wolfsbane, or b) monkshood? (2 marks)
=>both (2 mks), a and b are different terms for the same plant which also goes by the name of aconite; 1 mark awarded for choosing either.

4. Which ingredient(s) is/are required to cure boils? (4 marks)
=>as this trivia is about Snape, the four components of a Boil-curing potion are required to earn all four marks; these ingredients are nettles, snake fangs, horned slugs, porcupine quills; 2 marks awarded for Murtlap which is also accurate.

5. What colour should a correctly brewed sample of the Draught of Living Death be? (1 mark)
=>'clear as water'; palest pink would also be acceptable as Harry’s perfect sample of this potion (in HBP) may be interpreted as such.

6. What must Ron do in his detention from Professor Snape, in his third year? (2 marks)
=>clean bedpans in the hospital wing (1 mk) without the use of magic (1 mk).

7. T/F: Snape does not attempt to rescue Charity Burbage as it is not part of his promise to Albus Dumbledore. (1 mark)
=>False (1 mk); Charity falls into Snape’s category of ‘those whom I could not save’, without giving away his identity as a spy.


GROUP 3

1. Which skill, taught by Professor Snape in Harry's sixth year, would have been of great use to Harry in the Battle of Hogwarts? (1 mark)
=>fighting a Dementor without the use of the Patronus Charm (1 mk); Ω point awarded for non-verbal spells although it is not the most accurate answer. Snape is not the only professor demanding the practice and use of these spells and Harry doesn’t have any trouble dueling during the Battle of Hogwarts, however, he does have trouble producing a Patronus when confronted by Dementors.

2. Name one trait in Snape which is supposedly not too common among wizards. (1 mark)
=> Logic (Occlumency, flying without a broom, etc., are good answers, but the question specifies 'trait' rather than 'skill'.)

3. What are three nicknames Snape has in his schooldays and who gives each one to him? (6 marks)
=> i) Snivellus (1 mk) by James/Sirius/Marauders (1 mk); ii) Sev (1 mk) by Lily (1 mk); iii) Half-Blood Prince (1 mk) by himself (1 mk)

4. What does Severus immediately do with the half of Lily's letter he keeps? (1 mark)
=>he tucks it into his robes (1 mk); Ω points for those who came close but were somewhat inaccurate.

5. Which House would Snape least likely be Sorted into and why? (2 marks)
=>one mark was awarded for having an opinion (my personal opinion is Hufflepuff), another mark for a logical argument.

6. What is Severus Snape's greatest regret in life? (1 mark)
=>repeating the prophecy to the Dark Lord (1 mk) as it leads to Lily’s murder; Ω mark awarded for answers relating to joining the Death Eaters and hurting/insulting Lily.

7. Match each Marauder with the insult he gives to Snape via the Map. (4 marks)
i) Wormtail ii) Prongs iii) Moony iv) Padfoot
a) idiot b) abnormally large nose c) slimeball d) ugly git

=>i) c (1 mk); “Mr Wormtail bids Professor Snape good day, and advises him to wash his hair, the slimeball.”
=>ii) d (1 mk); “Mr Prongs agrees with Mr Moony, and would like to add that Professor Snape is an ugly git.”
=>iii) b (1 mk); “Mr Moony presents his compliments to Professor Snape, and begs him to keep his abnormally large nose out of other people’s business.”
=>iv) a (1 mk); “Mr Padfoot would like to register his astonishment that an idiot like that ever became a Professor.”

BONUS: Name five of Severus Snape's secret Muggle pleasures. =>up to five (5) bonus marks can be earned for creativity here; however, to earn each mark the 'pleasure' listed must have a Muggle component to it (e.g. reading 'The Complete Works of William Shakespeare' earns a point, but 'reading' alone does not). Sorry about that.
