Great quiz. "Quirrell" has two l's in it.
Sep 6th, 2011 at 04:47 GMT
@AdmiralMaxtreme- I was so focused on the spelling of his first name that I forgot the second 'l'!

This reminds me so much of my own high school days:
Nearly died when that girl turned me down for the school dance.
Nearly died when my pants split at school.
Nearly died when I forgot the big trigonometry test was today.
Nearly died when that zit appeared on my forehead the day of grad photos.

I enjoyed this. You might want to change the clue about the patronus to something about drowning; right now it gives the impression that he was attacked while following it. The doe was gone by the time it happened.
Sep 7th, 2011 at 00:32 GMT
Maybe accept "killing curse" for "Avada Kedavra" because I think some people have trouble spelling out the actual incantation...though it does say "this spell" in the hint.

Should mention almost getting hit by the Knight Bus! That was a closer miss than the Dementor on the train.
Sep 7th, 2011 at 01:23 GMT
@Chocolatl- You hit on my least favorite clue, but last night when putting this quiz together, I just couldn't come up with any better wording. Your comment forced me to think about it again and I hope I've come up with something better. @MasterPenguin- added! @AK_WDB- I considered the Knight Bus, but really we know the bus magically avoids objects but we don't know just how far that dementor would have gone if not for Lupin.
Sep 7th, 2011 at 02:01 GMT
I agree I doubt the Knight Bus would have really hit him. If you wanted something instead of the silver doe question you could add the Xenophilius Lovegood incident, though I think he was closer to drowning than he was dying in the Lovegood's house. If anything you could say who saved him from drowning instead of the doe at all (btw Ron).

Good suggestion, Davidos. I've made that change.
Sep 8th, 2011 at 16:34 GMT
great quiz, but for the book 6 section, you should change the dueled this.. to dueled WITH this.....makes it sound better...
Sep 8th, 2011 at 16:35 GMT
i DO like how your hints start with the same thing in each year, though! 5 globes...
Sep 19th, 2011 at 19:58 GMT
@teddylupin_snape: The problem with adding 'with' is that it would make the row uneven.
Dec 3rd, 2011 at 03:18 GMT
Two of these involve dementors, which don't really kill people.
Feb 7th, 2012 at 15:28 GMT
this quiz makes Voldemort seem nicer :) twas fun!
Mar 11th, 2012 at 18:38 GMT
Very well done quiz in a subject which is already overpopulated. 5 globes and nominated!
Mar 26th, 2012 at 11:24 GMT
In the book 7 section, I think you should change the spelling of 'incenerated' to 'incinerated'.
