Harry Potter Trivia Thread

Recommended Posts

Guest Pól

Here are the rules:

1. You may only ask questions that you know the answers to. Questions should be factual rather than subjective.

Examples

Good Question: What color are Lily Potter's eyes?

Bad Question: Who is the bestest bestest best character ever?

Caveat: If you have an question about Harry Potter that you do not know the answer to, make it clear in the post that you are not asking the question as a trivia question.

2. Once your question has been answered correctly, confirm that that is the correct answer. The person who answered correctly then asks the next question.

3. Questions may be either about the books or the films, but when there is conflict between facts from the books and facts from the films, the books trump.

4. Spoilers are acceptable.

5. Questions involving page numbers or chapter numbers are unacceptable (because, well, ... really?).

6. Only the seven books are fair game. Questions from Quidditch Through the Ages, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, or any other non-series book are not.

7. No looking up the answer. Only you are going to know if you have used resources other than the one between your ears, but doing that defeats the whole point of the game. Keep yourself honest.

8. Let's keep things friendly, please.

I'll start off with an easy-ish one:

What kind of wood is James Potter's wand made of?

For the wand... only wood I can think of right now is willow, but I'm about 99% sure that's not it.

the two horcruxes were the locket and the ring. The ring was defeated with the basilisk fang and the locket with the sword of griffindor? I'm pretty sure those were the ways, not so sure about which horcruxes or which were done which

And I'm with Michael... prepare for epic re-reading.

Oh also since Lewis threw out a question unbidden, are we gonna ignore one of them or make someone get both?

I'll answer Lewis's even though we should wait for someone to answer mine after this. After this, let's stick to one question though, for simplicity's sake.

My answer to Lewis's question is this: The last two horcruxes destroyed before Voldemort is killed are the cup (stabbed with the basilisk fang by Hermione in the Chamber of Secrets) and Harry himself (Avada Kedavra by Voldemort).

James Potter's wand is not made out of willow, and I'm pretty sure the core is never specified, so I'm just looking for the wood.

Joe's right. James Potter's wand is made out of mahogany. So Joe asks the next question.

I'm not sure, but isn't his name Roberts? He's the one who needs an obliviator constantly to keep him happy, right?

No.

The second one has to be right... I can try again, right?

If so, I think it's actually 29 knuts. And the same 17 sickles

and if not... someone kindly delete this :blush:

      Hi, Although the basis of my meditation come from a book on Buddism the spiritual aspect of my life is based around being thankful for what I have and for the people I know and to participate with that which is around me the basis of which is understanding and practicing love. i like Buddism a lot but prefer if people use their own words when conveying something.  If I had the determination and attention span to read the Quoran and find a Master I would say I would align myself with Sufism but that's not going to happen so I have to be content being an Abrahamist with Big Book leanings. This is not my own words but sort of in fact. Love God (your version) and treat others with kindness and love:) The rest is commentary. Reading this made things easy for me. In light of the simplicity I feel that spirituality should not possess an inaccessible quality to it.  Why I like Sufism is the belief that "love is the highest station of the soul."

      Hi ,  thanks for the warm welcome  
    • ElissaMtF
      Hi Gwen, thanks for the warm welcome. I do have a balanced life but it’s especially because it helps me to get through the dysphoric days. I try to work a lot and do relaxing things to be confronted less with the dysphoria.   I love Godiva chocolate. Lindt chocolate from Switzerland is not bad either but I prefer my Belgian chocolates. We have a Leonidas on every corner here. Do you have Leonidas chocolate in the USA?  
    • ElissaMtF
      Thanks so much. Your message feels very welcoming  I don’t have a lot of  supportive people so thanks for offering me a place to share my feelings.

      AWW, I love that question, so sweet my dog is called “ Noisette “ which is French for “ walnut / nut “ . He is 4 years old, kinda small but very fat. His race is a mix of a mops and a bulldog.  I love him. He can be grumpy but he’s lovely

      The whole issue was not about the ability of trans to serve just like its not about the ability of immigrants to do good work. It is about Trump appeasing his base so that he can stay in power as long as possible so he can keep passing the things he really cares about and those are the things that make his money. It's a shame there are so many bigots in this country that is making it possible.

      Very well put. The journey for many is hard and long. Hopefully as time goes by it becomes easier for many.

      I would add Transgender Date to the list. While I am MTF the site does a good job of catering to everyone. They do a great job of breaking down the identities instead of just grouping everyone together. There is a vast community there so finding someone there is definitely a good chance of finding someone. There is also a lot of discussion on the site which is focused more on just dating. That may provide a good outlet for your friend as well.
