"Now and then, you need someone older..."

Riddle #10 was correctly guessed by prettyveela. You go girl!


The Shrieking Shack: site of Lupin’s adolescent werewolf misery (A bed for suff’ring and not for sleep), starting point for the Marauders’ escapades and their breaking of Dumbledore's trust, not to mention the place where Pettigrew's betrayal was revealed (Trust after trust carelessly broken), and haven in which MWPP's tight friendship was formed by what they did to help Lupin (But also a love deep and unspoken). As for the last line, You’re not as alone as you always believed—that is for Harry, who found out there the truth of his godfather’s innocence, and that he did in fact have a living "family" member who cared about him.


I was going to wait a little to post this next one, but LJ is slow today, so here is another ship riddle.


She chose bravery over brains,
Though she could've had either one;
And I think he's the same--
Noble heart, clever head in one.
If someone forgets his conscience,
One of these two can help him remember.
I'd like this pairing a lot more,
If it weren't so May-December.



I know of two different people the "he" could be and still have all the clues work, so I'll give ten points to whoever gets the answer that I originally thought of when I wrote this, and five to anyone who guesses the other possibility.

Now back to cleaning and catching up on paperwork. *heavy sigh*

think- not entirely clear then, so either bravery or brains is not readily visible. Neville and Snape, but I can't think of a she for Neville

forgets-Neville or Lupin here, though Snape forgetting his goodness is possible.

Snape/Hermione

and trying for the double I'll put

Lupin/Hermione

though Neville/Minerva does have its potential.

Remus/Hermione is the one I had in mind when I wrote it. But you're on the wrong track for the alternative answer. This riddle is actually fairly straightforward. No one has got it yet, though, so you still have a chance to get five more points for the Slyths.

The only other answer I've got in me with the same lady is Sirius/Hermione, so I'll go for that. (btw, why can't it be Snape/Hermione?)

Because in the first four lines, I was trying to describe two people who are Gryffindors (they ultimately choose bravery), but have the qualities (brains) to be Ravenclaws. Snape won't work 'cause he's not a Ravenclaw-ish Gryff. (Though you could say he's a Ravenclaw-ish Slyth. Or even a Gryffindor-ish Slyth).

oh- ok. Glad none of the points went to either of those houses then. *points and laughs* (hey, if I'm going to be Slytherin I should be in character)

Oh, yeah. It's not Sirius/Hermione either. I suppose Sirius can sometimes make someone remember his conscience, but I think he's more often the one to need reminding.

gosh, must watch punctuation- both my S/Hr guesses interpreted it as her helping him remember their conscience. Doh.

I'm actually guessing Dumbledore/McGonagall.

Good guess--I can see where you got that from. But I'm actually looking for a ship that's more noticably May-December than that. I mean, sure, AD's December, but MMcG is hardly May, right?

Bluemeanies already got the 10-point ship (Remus/Hermione), but the 5-pointer is still up for grabs!

Yeah, no idea. I don't do riddles, but I had a guess, so I figured it couldn't hurt.
