In the final battle against He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Neville Longbottom, Bill Weasley and Draco Malfoy must, in some order, cast one of 5 spells. Additionally, they must cast their spells in sync with their girlfriends to increase the potency of the only tool against Dark Magic: Love. The boys are dating either Cho Chang, Fleur Delacour, Hermione Granger, Ginny Weasley or Luna Lovegood. They each cast one of the following spells: Expelliarmus (disarms opponent), Reparo (repairs an object that is broken), Impendimenta (freezes opponent), Silencio (silences opponent), or Scourgify (cleansing spell).

1. Neville doesn't know how to cast a Reparo spell.

2. The 5 girls are the one dating Ron, the one who cast first, the one who used the Impendimenta spell, the one dating Harry, and the one who cast third.

3. Ron first began to realize just how wonderful his girlfriend, Luna (who is superstitious and therefore won't be the last to cast a spell), was when she was a substitute commentator at a Quidditch game.

4. Draco and his girlfriend cast fourth.

5. Bill has always been fond of his girlfriend's ability to cast the Scourgify spell, and so chose to cast that spell.

6. The five boys are Draco, the one dating Cho, the one who cast second, the one using the Scourgify spell, and the one who cast fifth.

7. None of boys cast a spell with the same first initial as their name.

8. Hermione is known for her skill in casting an Impendimenta spell, so her date picked that spell to cast.

9. Ron thought it would be "bloody brilliant" if he could make someone else keep quiet, so he cast the Silencio spell.

10. Fleur refused to allow her boyfriend and herself to cast their spell in any place but third, her lucky number.

Logic thells us that Hermione and Draco would never date. If you are going to use such a popular premise for your puzzle at least stick to the facts..

I liked that teaser a lot. Even if it didn't stick to the facts from the book. It took me a few times going thru the clues to figure it out, but you don't want one that is easy enough to go thru them only once. Great job. I think you did awesome.

I am a ron/hermione fan too...but it wouldn't be very difficult for all the harry potter fans if i stuck to (all) the books' facts...

Awesome, very well done.

I don't think Harry would repair Voldemort's heart though

But you named He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, didn't you?!?

i thought some of the pairings were a little...strange......but i liked the little story thing at the end......great job!

Pretty Hard teaser...actually had to think this one through. Though I have to agree, Hermione & Draco would not date...ever.

pretty straightforward and easy clues, but I need that every once in a while. I disagree about using prior knowledge to solve this. I understand why you made it "not right" with the pairings. In a grid puzzle you should only need the clues. I thought it was fun!

Loved this puzzle! I agree that it would have been too easy had you stuck to the pairings in the books! Great job!

I liked this on alot!

I'm glad it didn't use the pairings in the book, made it so that you actually ad to read the clues

I agree with sissy. If it stuck to the book, it would have been to predictable

I like how it sticks to SOME facts but not all. Like Harry and Ginny and Bill and Fleur. That's a correct pair. Great teaser

this was an ok puzzle except for the fact it went totally against the nature against the harry potter books. i almost ruled out hermione and draco because i knew it would never happen in the books. other than that it was ok

I loved it. I'm glad you didn't stick to the story or else there wouldn't have been a whole lot to figure out. I love harry potter, so this was a crack-up for me. well done

Once again, isn't this copywrite violation?
sissy245Acz*
Nov 05, 2005

That would make all of the fanfics out there illegal, and a band, and a whole bunch of websites....

No, this is for personal gain, using somebody else's "stuff" under their name.

The couples were sometimes right but otherwise PRETTY weird. Send me an e-mail on this site for a website i made where you can be a hogwarts student online! (or just post here)

I got it! Yay! I had to think for this one. Great teaser.

I read the books so would'nt people know who was dating who?And since when has bill weasley or draco seen the dark lord?
carrathanatos*
Jan 12, 2006

pretty good--i liked how it didn't "stick to the facts" as SOME are saying... if it did, it would've been easier to solve. :\
daddyo_luvsus*
Jan 13, 2006

I liked that you put the couples together in a way that we know would never happen. It made it harder because we assumed we knew who was dating who.

Wow that was kinda hard. But it was cool...

I think it was especially interesting with some of the weird matchups. Those are what made it fun.

How can you post a teaser if you don't even have 250 points?

Otherwise...an okay teaser.

Very interesting...never thought I'd see the day when Hermione and Draco would be dating

Also, since when has Draco agreed to help defeat Voldemort?

I didn't mind the pairings but the defeat story was horrible.

As the point of a logic problem is logic, and not telling a story, you did a fantastic job!!!
