    Number Twelve, Grimmauld Place - Task 2

    This is Krystal Ball, Senior Consultant to the Minister for Magic. She is currently assigned to the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures and liaises directly with the Muggle Prime Minister through the Office of Misinformation whenever the need arises. She keeps the Order informed of all the worst magical-Muggle collisions and how they were explained away. She also informs the Order of how complaints about magical creatures were handled and whether new magical creatures were bred.

    I just love these golden snake bookends - I added the books!

    The Advance Guard - Task 1

    I’ve always wanted to have lush eyelashes (without the trouble of extensions or mascara) so my spell is Ciliaugeo! The incantation is derived from the Latin cili, meaning eyelashes and augeo, meaning increase.

    A Peck of Owls - Task 2

    "Don't count your owls before they are delivered" - don't plan anything that depends on a good thing you expect to happen in the future. (play on the Muggle phrase "don't count your chickens before they hatch")

    Dudley Demented - Task 2

    Oh Sky - I've been there! My one-month-old car hydroplaned into the base of an overpass and I watched the engine slowly crumple into bad origami. You captured that moment exactly!

    Dudley Demented - Task 2

    Dudley was a bully, and just like all bullies, he was only as brave as the gang members who were with him. When faced with a Dementor, Dudley was totally on his own. The last thing that Dudley would remember was Harry reproaching him for picking on younger children and he tormenting Harry about his nightmares. The Dementor’s hunger for happiness would make Dudley feel really alone, miserable and vulnerable. My eye-opening moments were not as dire as this but significant nevertheless.

    Priori Incantatem - Task 1

    Tom Riddle Sr., Voldemort's father, was a wealthy, snobbish and rude Muggle raised in Little Hangleton. He was extremely handsome so a local witch, Merope Gaunt, bewitched him into falling in love and marrying her. When the enchantment wore off, Merope was pregnant and Tom Riddle Sr. abandoned her. Merope died shortly after her son was born and the child who would become Voldemort was brought up in a Muggle orphanage. When he was 16, Voldemort returned to Little Hangleton, killed his father (and grandparents), and used the death to make Marvolo Gaunt's ring into a Horcrux. He framed his uncle Morphin, Merope's brother, for the crime.

    Priori Incantatem - Task 2

    I started listening to the Harry Potter series when Goblet of Fire first came out and it took a few months before I started listening to the fourth book. But something was different - I read much faster than I can listen and the story was unfolding too slowly for me. So I wound up buying a hard copy at my local bookstore, which apparently still had first editions. I noticed the mistake when Dumbledore was explaining Priori Incantatem and we discussed it at length in book club. In retrospect, some explanatory theories were quite comical! And in their editing haste, there was one consistency error: I am currently reading a revised version in paperback and all instances of error have been corrected, except one:

    The Death Eaters - Task 1

    I was standing with the rest of the Durmstrang contingent, waiting for Krum to emerge from the maze when I felt the burn. I knew I was doomed - I gave up the names of so many comrades, there was just no forgiveness for me. As I made my way to the Forbidden Forest to begin my flight in earnest, I wondered how this could be happening; it just wasn't possible. And yet. . .
