Harry Potter Moment of the Week (1)

HPMOTW (2)

Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a weekly meme created by Uncorked Thoughts that was created to keep Harry Potter moments alive.

He everyone I just wanted to briefly introduce you to a new meme that I’m planning to participate every week. When I saw that Kaitlin from Next Page Please was doing weekly Harry Potter posts I knew I had to check it out! I’m so incredibly excited to participate and I hope you guys are too (:

This week’s topic: 

Which one of the 5 trials the trio faced in Philosopher’s Stone would have been your downfall?

If by some miracle I was able to get through the first trial, I just know that my downfall would be Snape’s riddle for the potions. I am terrible at riddles, especially long ones- so I have a feeling that I would drink poison thinking that I found the right potion.

Danger lies before you, while safety lies behind,

Two of us will help you, whichever you would find,

One among us seven will let you move ahead,

Another will transport the drinker back instead,

Two among our number hold only nettle wine,

Three of us are killers, waiting hidden in line.

Choose, unless you wish to stay here for evermore,

To help you in your choice, we give you these clues four:

First, however slyly the poison tries to hide

You will always find some on nettle wine’s left side;

Second, different are those who stand at either end,

But if you would move onwards neither is your friend;

Third, as you see clearly, all are different size,

Neither dwarf nor giant holds death in their insides;

Fourth, the second left and the second on the right

Are twins once you taste them, though different at first sight.

I mean seriously?! Riddles are the most confusing things I have ever encountered. This is one Harry Potter moment I won’t mind sitting out.

  1. Totally agree – Although I don’t know hot to play chess, pretty sure I would have been completely unco on the broom, would have panicked with the plant – basically I would have never got past Fluffy!
