Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme hosted by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts and Me @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote, object from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself! How to join up & upcoming topics here.
Which one of the 6 trials the trio faced in Philosopher's Stone would have been your downfall? (Quirrel's Troll, Flitwick's Flying Keys, Sprout's Plants, Snape's Potion Riddle, McGonagall's Chess Game or Dumbledore's Mirror/Stone trick)
I love this question^^ Ok, so I think I might have been able to manage Flitwick's Charmed Flying Keys. I've got a keen eye and great reflexes - plus I've always thought I'd play Seeker in Quidditch if I ever played, so there's that ;) Sprout's Plants might be tricky, but I also imagine myself like Hermione, gobbling up all of the Hogwarts textbooks like air, so the odds are in my favor that I'd have had a spell to save myself there too. Hopefully Quirrel's Troll would have been somewhat easy at this point, if we're thinking I'd have read all the books Hermione did, I like to think there'd have been a spell in there for Trolls. And well Dumbledore usage of the Mirror of Erised to only give the stone to someone who wanted to find the stone but not use it would be no problem if my motives were pure...and well they would have been so that's settled.
No, I'd definitely be screwed with Snape's Potion Riddle AND McGonagall's Chess Game. As much as I enjoy both riddles and chess, I'm not especially gifted at either. Read: I suck at both. Without Hermione or Ron to help me out, I'd be done for...
