Re: Test Your Wits! The Riddle Thread V.13

Wohoo! Good work karate and sholeigh! You're getting closer.
I survey the school I love, and wish the central place above. Dumbledore
Aligned to oversee their clan, let the heads our table span. you got it with the evenly spaced and by order of the tables!
My right hand this cat may be, but last of all she値l take her tea. McGonagall
First to jet is her great rival, though his cheer may need revival.Snape
We値l ensure the prompt arrival, of one who値l see to his survival. Sprout linked with line above right? and with a hint in the line as to the identity

I壇 love to reach the stars each night, but all that痴 left is a hasty flight. Sinastra & Madam Hooch Is the left significant for the order? Who's speaking here? left is significant for the order, but so are other things...
Divine omens she値l nightly find, where dark and light do meet in kind. Trelawney & ? ...which subject (with a known teacher who eats) is missing?
Beside your place beneath the dome, should be the one who loves each tome. Madam Pince
Flanked by creatures he値l not sneeze, though he壇 do anything to please. Hagrid & ? "flanked"
One last place should stand unfilled, her number痴 three, she will be thrilled.Vector
Snape - Sinastra - Vector - Pince - Flitwick - Hooch - Dumbledore - ? - Sprout - ? - ? - ? - McGonagall

I'm looking at it from Dumbledore's point of view for "directions", sitting and looking out at the students

And the other two are tw oout of Pomfrey, Binns( does he eat though? ) and on of the DADA teachers, I think...

Re: Test Your Wits! The Riddle Thread V.13

OK, I think this line:

We’ll ensure the prompt arrival, of one who’ll see to his survival = DADA teacher

Because the position is cursed and Snape wanted it, so not getting it ensured he stayed in the Potions job. It could be Moody, because he arrived during the Sorting Ceremony that year.

This is starting to look like a game of Mastermind: right name, wrong position How many black pegs, kala_way?

yea it is. Only a few still out of order...

Your Snape logic is creative, but not the direction I went...I thought that "see to his survival" was pretty straightforward and if you combine it with the "prompt"...

Hey, who's over there "flanking" Hagrid??

Re: Test Your Wits! The Riddle Thread V.13

CPT here, did Lupin 'see to' his survival in the werewolf prank?
And *lightbulb* will Hagrid not sneeze because Madam Pomfrey is next to him?

Snape - Hooch - Vector - Pince - Flitwick - Sinastra- Dumbledore - ? - Sprout - ? - ? - ? - McGonagall

Lupin's the right prof (uh...though not with that clue...who/what/how is he?), so you've got everyone who needs a seat, still a bit mixed up on the order though.
I only used "sneeze" because it rhymes with please
Pomfrey has a specific role at the school, no? *hint* *hint*

Snape - Hooch - Vector - Pince - Flitwick - Sinastra- Dumbledore - ? - Sprout - ? - ? - ? - McGonagall

Re: Test Your Wits! The Riddle Thread V.13

Is there anyone at all still working on mine? I'll withdraw it if no one is.

Re: Test Your Wits! The Riddle Thread V.13

I was thinking of you at school eariler today Tiberius. See, my english teacher is pregnant, so she was telling us all how when people ask her what she's going to name her child, she gives them fake names, and one was Tiberius Nicodemus, and it reminded me of you. But anyway, on to the point, I've been trying for forever to figure out your scar riddle, and I can't think of anything. I have a feeling when we do finally get the answer, everyone will be smacking themselves on the heads.

I'm sure I will be. I just can't think of anything else. If you give a hint I'll try again, but I just don't know what other direction to go

Or maybe smacking me.

Tell your teacher I think Tiberius is a wonderful name.

Is it Merlin or one of the other Chocolate Frog Card characters? I started going through them and if I'm on the right track I'll keep going.

Re: Test Your Wits! The Riddle Thread V.13

I've got it! (I think)


Snape - Pomfrey - Vector - Pince - Flitwick - Sinistra - Dumbledore - Hooch - Sprout - (Binns) - Lupin - Hagrid - McGonagall

Lupin is 'where dark and light do meet in kind'. Hagrid is flanked by the cat and the wolf, which solves that end of the table. Pomfrey, who ensures Snape's survival, is next to him, leaving the final places for Hooch at Dumbledore's right hand, and Binns' place stands empty.

N... Neville?

Harry and Neville both lost their parents in a way. And maybe you mean the inner scars they have from this loss.

Nymphadora Tonks, because whatever scars she gets, they can magically go away?

You're almost there! Binns isn't at the table, but you've named the person beside Lupin before--from the same line!

Re: Test Your Wits! The Riddle Thread V.13

Well done sho! It isn't Binns, so it's Trelawney .
Snape - Pomfrey - Vector - Pince - Flitwick - Sinistra - Dumbledore - Hooch - Sprout - Trelawney - Lupin - Hagrid - McGonagall

Good riddle, kala! ( and I just noticed, completely off topic, but you have 500 posts for 500 days ).
