    I don't know that Kreacher was a "Hogwarts" house elf.

    Got my Apparition License (not much of a struggle); took three tries though, so maybe I AM just a muggle. Travelled all around Hogwarts and Hogsmeade (gee whiz!). Thanks, @bhenderson79 -- fun quiz!

    I splinched myself. Ouch.

    One of Dumbledore's middle names being the delightfully prosaic "Brian" is one of my favorite little jokes in the entire series :)

    @c3pojones: Oh yes, he was. Actually, he led the house-elves of Hogwarts himself during the Battle of Hogwarts.

    ^ think your problem may have been playing on Sporacle
  7. Sets of Three: Harry Potter

    @c3pojones: Harry sends him to Hogwarts when he inherits him, and he's there through most of book 6. After the debacle at the Ministry of Magic, when they can't return to #12 Grimmauld Place, it's assumed that Kreacher goes back to Hogwarts eventually, because he shows up there during the battle, leading the other Hogwarts house-elves in an onslaught from the kitchen.

    To me, this quiz was a struggle
    All these clues I had to juggle
    I guess that I choked
    My license revoked
    I've been demoted to muggle

    Couldn't be more idiot that I confused 'Black Sisters' with the actual band 'Weird Sisters'. Not a good day.
