you should put both first names and last names, as some of your answers vary ("snape" for severus snape then "charity" for charity burbage).

Snape wasn't killed in the Shack, he was killed in the boathouse....

He was killed in the Shrieking shack in the book, the boathouse in the film but I'll make this clearer

You have "Shrieking shack" spelled wrongly in the quiz.

Accept Bryce? I didn't think of typing Frank, as I was used to surnames being accepted...

Nice Quiz! I liked the flobberworms "to much lettuce" part

My first thought was the Fat Friar for the lettuce, just because I thought he might be there

The most common Spelling of Lily is with two 'L's i think Lilly Potter should be accepted as well as lily potter

Not trying to be weird or anything, but Lilly looks so odd to me because I've always seen it spelled Lily. Oh, and it's really funny how people refer to Lily still as Lily Evans even after she was married!!

Could be because Harry's daughter is Lily Potter?

Hermione and Ginny are only married to anyone during one chapter in all of the seven original books.

For the ones I missed, I kept thinking things like, "It was that guy, in that one chapter. Dear lord, what was his name?"

"Voldermort in his father's old house" confused me. It seemed like it could have been Tom Riddle Sr. or Morfin Gaunt because it was unclear about whose house.
+1

Aug 2, 2012
Agreed. The "his" in the clue is somewhat ambigous. "Voldemort in the Riddle house" might be clearer

Good idea for a quiz, but I was surprised that it seemed to move between the books and movies, which was odd. For instance, in the books it is falling through the veil, and Hedwig's death is the one from the movie. More continuity would be appreciated, but great quiz.

This is a really good quiz but I think that for Nearly Headless Nick you should also accept sir nicolas de mimsy popington. Thats what I was typing the whole time and it didn't accept it. Nearly headless nick is his nickname so I tyhink you should accept both answers

That should be accepted now, thanks

Can you add Gibbon to Crabbe? He was also a death eater and killed by friendly fire (idiotic word) at the end of the 6th book.

level 28
Jun 6, 2012
Fiend fire, not friend fire. Fiend fire is the enchanted flames that destroy horcruxes. Friendly fire is something completely different

It doesn't mess up any of the answers, but in the last clue on the left column, you spelled Voldemort incorrectly by adding an extra R before the M. Just thought you might want to know.

Moody was actually killed by Snape: During the flight from Privet Drive, Snape sent a curse flying, attempting to hit Moody's pursuer, because Snape was helping Harry's cause. It accidentally hit Moody, which caused him to fall from his broom and die.

I've noticed that you have to answer in a specific order. Is there a chance that could be changed. i might know the answers to some that would come later, but not able to answer them before i reach them, which i will never do, because i can't answer them in order

Sirius died a full book after Cedric. All of the others technically died off-screen, except possibly Frank Bryce. Certainly, Cedric was the first death that Harry actively witnessed in the narrative.

Draco Malfoy killed Dumbledore, not Snape!!

Aug 13, 2015
No, the whole point is that Draco is not bad enough to kill Dumbledore, so Snape does, because Dumbledore asked him to.
+1

Feb 3, 2018
Yeah, Draco defeated Dumbledore, which is why he (and later Harry) became the master of the Elder Wand, but Snape was the one who actually killed him.

In the books, Sirius wasn't hit by a Killing curse. he was knocked into the veil by an unnamed curse and died that way. Otherwise Harry wouldn't have thought he'd pop out the other side.

I do think it's safe to assume that Moody was hit by a killing curse. Although it the book didn't explicitly state that, I feel as though Moody was probably powerful enough to use magic to survive a fall.

"Voldemort in his father's old house after he was spotted by Nagini." This hint really suffers from vague pronoun use; does "his" refer to the subject of the clue, or to Voldemort? (From the answer, I guess it's the latter.)
