Thanks, Lady Arabella!

Meant to do the job

For less than a year

Entertained the mob

Didn't work, oh dear.


Still, some help I got

As I was to fail

- Success on the spot?

On a larger scale.

Thanks, Choices, for starting the guessing, but Horace Slughorn is not the answer.

Keep guessing, please.

Another nice guess, Choices, but the answer is not Gilderoy Lockhart either.

Well let's get the rest of the DADA teachers out of the way. Is it Dolores Umbridge?

LOL, Verity, these DADA teachers all seem to fit to some extent, but the answer is not Dolores Umbridge.

OK, I'm moving on to lines 3 and 4 - is it the band playing the musical saws at Nearly Headless Nick's Deathday Party?

Great ideas, Lady Arabella and Verity. The answer is neither Hagrid trying to enlist the giants' support, nor the band playing the musical saws at Nearly Headless Nick's Deathday Party.

BB, you might be on to something there. Just to be a bit more specific, is it the charm Snape did on DD's cursed hand?

BB, Severus Snape is my favourite guess for any riddle, but not the answer this time.

Verity, the charm Snape did on DD's cursed hand is a great idea for a riddle, but unfortunately, it was not my idea. However, this guess is more in the direction of the answer than the earlier ones.

As a general warning, I'll let you know that the first two lines are somewhat ... tricky. Keep guessing, please.

Wow, so many great guesses!

Choices, the answer is not Hagrid looking after his half-brother Grawp though there is one component in this guess which can be found in the answer as well.

Lady Arabella, it is not Draco Malfoy or his task to kill Dumbledore, but one of these two characters has something to do with the answer.

Verity, the Unbreakable Vow is not the answer either...

You have definitely earned a hint - see below. Keep guessing, please.

OK, I'll bite. Is it the troll that Professor Quirrel let into the school at Halloween?

Thanks for the guess, Verity! The answer is not the troll that Professor Quirrel let into the school at Halloween, but the hint has been useful, I think.

The Halloween-related guesses are on the right track, and Choices' interpretation of "trick or treat" is probably in the right direction, too. The answer, however, is neither Sir Cadogan taking guard of the portrait hole after the Fat Lady takes flight, nor Professor Quirrell's failed attempt to steal the Sorcerer's Stone from Gringotts Bank.

Keep guessing, please.

I admit this is grasping at straws, and really has nothing to do with Halloween, but is it Crabbe and Goyle in their Polyjuiced disguises guarding the Room of Requirement?
