Bright Eyes

My dear Bagginses and Boffins...

It is time to bring this round of the HP Riddle Championship to a close.

As for the last riddle, it seems several of you came up with some creative answers. I got a kick out of reading the comments this morning. :) Knight Bus/Flying Ford Anglia? Brilliant. Would that it were the answer. But alas, it is not. I hope none of you will be writing me any angry letters because I am hopelessly obvious and straightforward, and not nearly as subtle and trixy as your answers. Or because I have a dreadful OBHWF bias.

And the Riddle Championship Cup goes (appropriately) to Slytherin, who beat out the other Houses with a grand total of 60 points. Professor Snape is very proud of his House, and of his star snake-ling bluemeanies4, I’m sure.

The final tallies for the other Houses are as follows:

Gryffindor (redwood, veela): 40
Ravenclaw (angua): 35
Hufflepuff (lilac, piper, Cedric): 25

And thank you to all the participants for responding, even those who did not manage to nab any points. I had fun, and I hope you did, too.

That brings this exercise to a close—until my muse visits again.
