Another good guess, but it is not Hedwig. BTW, thanks to all who have offered a guess. Potty Games - Riddles Only (Vol. II) - Page 17 2752390508

Now that I'm leaving, what do you say?
Up, up and away, you'll see me no more today.
Once again, what do you say?


Hint: The answer is actually what you would say to whatever is leaving.


Guesses: Something to do with Dumbledore, Buckbeak, Hedwig

Wow, some very thoughtful answers, but alas, it is not Wingardium Leviosa or Snape flying out the window. Mona does have the right idea with her answer "Coward!" That is what you might yell at Snape as he leaves.

Now that I'm leaving, what do you say?
Up, up and away, you'll see me no more today.
Once again, what do you say?


Hint #1: The answer is actually what you would say to whatever is leaving.
Hint #2: Remember hint #1.

More good guesses.....however it is not Aunt Marge or Expelliarmus. Thanks for those guesses though.


Now that I'm leaving, what do you say?
Up, up and away, you'll see me no more today.
Once again, what do you say?


Hint #1: The answer is actually what you would say to whatever is leaving.
Hint #2: Remember hint #1.
Hint #3: The first and last lines simply ask the question - What would you say to whatever is leaving? The line in the middle holds two important clues - up, up and away and you'll SEE me no more today.

Guesses: Something to do with Dumbledore, Buckbeak, Hedwig, Wingardium Leviosa, Snape flying out the window, Aunt Marge, Expelliarmus


I'll keep the riddle up one more day and if no one guesses it, I'll put up the answer tomorrow afternoon. :-)

Since there have been no more guesses, I am going to reveal the answer.......

Now that I'm leaving, what do you say?
Up, up and away, you'll see me no more today.
Once again, what do you say?


* answers below *
Spoiler:
OK, the answer is..... "Goodbye Norberta" (Note: first thought to be a boy, Norbert became Norberta). That is the answer to the first and third lines question, "what do you say?". The "up, up and away" refers to Norberta being carried UP to the top of the tower and taken AWAY to a new home. The crate was covered with the invisibility cloak, thus "you will SEE me no more today'.

Now, I pass the riddle wand to someone else. Take it away. Potty Games - Riddles Only (Vol. II) - Page 17 2752390508

Choices, I don't think it's a matter of you stopping the game... I think it's just a case of: most of the people who used to play this particular Potty Game don't really frequent this forum much anymore. And some who do check in on the Games threads all the time may feel that constructing riddles is not their strong suit. At least, that's what my reason is. Potty Games - Riddles Only (Vol. II) - Page 17 1437562208 But to try and revive this thread, here's a quick riddle I came up with, while taking a shower. I'm sure the answer will be guessed quickly, if folks actually look in on this thread and venture a guess. Potty Games - Riddles Only (Vol. II) - Page 17 2398211921

Beware!
I'm charming.
I'm sweet.
I'll knock you off your feet!


Hopefully, there'll be a guess or two. Potty Games - Riddles Only (Vol. II) - Page 17 2752390508

Choices, yes I'd have to agree with PAH. We have gone through periods before where this thread has died for a little while, only to be revived by one of our riddlers, as PAH has now done. You definitely shouldn't take it personally! Potty Games - Riddles Only (Vol. II) - Page 17 1003735042

Now for a guess. How about ... Fainting Fancies?

Verity, thanks for the guess. Potty Games - Riddles Only (Vol. II) - Page 17 2222139670 You're on the right track, but that's not the answer I was thinking of.

Beware!

Sure thing, Julia! Potty Games - Riddles Only (Vol. II) - Page 17 2222139670 I may not be a great creator of riddles, but I do like Archiving them! Potty Games - Riddles Only (Vol. II) - Page 17 464751818

Thanks for the guess, and after 3, I think it's time for a hint.


Beware!
I'm charming.
I'm sweet.
I'll knock you off your feet!

Hint 1: The first guess is the closest.

Verity, you're definitely on the right track, so I've added another verse as a 2nd hint. It'll probably give the answer away, but I do not have the patience of Job Potty Games - Riddles Only (Vol. II) - Page 17 1437562208, and don't want to wait around indefinitely for this riddle to be solved. Potty Games - Riddles Only (Vol. II) - Page 17 2752390508

Beware!
I'm charming.
I'm sweet.
I'll knock you off your feet!

Wait!
Don't say I didn't warn you.
Or you shan't be able
to say anything at all!


Hint 1: The first guess is the closest.
Hint 2: The 2nd verse.

Verity, I wasn't sure if Skiving Snackboxes was part of your guess or not, so included them, just to be on the safe side! Potty Games - Riddles Only (Vol. II) - Page 17 2222139670

I thought for sure the second verse would reveal all... it's so funny how, when you know the answer, everything seems so clear. Potty Games - Riddles Only (Vol. II) - Page 17 266347159

Potty Games - Riddles Only (Vol. II) - Page 17 2942856553 Julia, you have guessed the right answer! bounce

Beware!
I'm charming.
I'm sweet.
I'll knock you off your feet!

Wait!
Don't say I didn't warn you.
Or you shan't be able
to say anything at all!


Hint 1: The first guess is the closest.
Hint 2: The 2nd verse.

* answers below *
Spoiler:
The answer is indeed Ton-Tongue Toffee! I'm not sure an explanation is needed, but here it goes:

Beware!
I'm charming.
I'm sweet.
I'll knock you off your feet!

Ton-Tongue Toffees are charmed sweets that make one's tongue "swell up to ten times its normal size". I figured that would knock someone off their feet! Potty Games - Riddles Only (Vol. II) - Page 17 464751818

Wait!
Don't say I didn't warn you.
Or you shan't be able
to say anything at all!

If your tongue is that swollen, it's going to be hard to talk. Exhibit A: Dudley Dursley. Potty Games - Riddles Only (Vol. II) - Page 17 2775603007

Hint 1: The first guess is the closest. Verity guessed Fainting Fancies, a similarly charmed WWW sweet

Hint 2: The 2nd verse. - explained above

Guessed: Fainting Fancies, U-No-Poo, Madam Rosmerta's oak-matured mead, Puking Pastilles, Skiving Snackboxes, Nosebleed Nougat

The riddle baton now goes to you, Julia. Potty Games - Riddles Only (Vol. II) - Page 17 266347159
