Hints for Riddle #4

Well, we’re still on Riddle #4, as no one has been able to guess it yet. Here it is again:


Without a word this damsel ran
Into the arms of her “Handyman.”
Like Orion he was treated.
In the end, he was defeated.
About this ship there’s no debate;
It may be canon, but it isn’t fate.



Here are some hints that may help:
1) bluemeanies4 was right in thinking: "Handyman"- the quotation marks indicate that the answer is non-conventional, and not a carpenter or builder.
2) This ship really is canon. Like Cedric/Cho. Only not them.
3) Incorrect guesses so far: Filch/Mrs. Norris, Cedric/Cho, Wormtail/Bertha Jorkins, Tom/Ginny, Lockhart/someone, and Trelawney/someone.
4) Only some versions of the Orion story have this in it. It has to do with who was mad at Orion and why.

The hint of Artemis and Apollo gave me a new idea. The guy used to date a certain sister and her brother was none to pleased. When they broke up he was 'defeated'. And a certain leaky hosepipe hooked up with the guy at hand and available, "Handyman". Micheal Corner/Cho??

I'm sure if this were a crossword I'd have erased a hole in it by now.

Oh, I'll also go Ginny/Micheal Corner cause we never heard them talking to eachother (though the same is true for Cho, but Micheal/Cho was the defeat and Ginny/Micheal was the Orion treating)

Ah, you beat me to it. I think it is Ginny/Michae because...

Without a word this damsel ran
We never heard about it until Hermione told us...

Into the arms of her “Handyman.”

The only thing I can think of is this line... "Zacharias Smith!' said Ron at once, punching a fist into his hand. 'Or - I thought that Michael Corner had a really shifty look, too -"

Like Orion he was treated.
Michael (as we see above) drew the ire of Ginny's brother Ron. Bluemeanies explained this well already.

In the end, he was defeated.
I took this as Michael was defeated when Gryffindor (and Ginny) beat Ravenclaw in the final match.

About this ship there’s no debate;
Because dear St. Hermione informed us it was true...

It may be canon, but it isn’t fate.
It isn't fate because Ginny's fate lies elsewhere, and obviously, they already broke up.

I don't know, this was my thinking at least. Good job Bluemeanies! I think you're right, at least.

H. Baggins, you're TOUGH. You could out-riddle Gollum any day!

Yes, you and bluemeanies are correct--and you did an excellent job explaining the riddle, too. The only thing you missed was the Handyman reference. I'll give an explanation for that in my next entry--along with a new riddle. :)

Hey, I've got to bring back the house cup for Professor Sna... er Flitwick. Yeah, Flitwick, he's really into logic puzzles.
