    This year we return to the ditloid quiz. You complete the sentences using the parts provided.

    Example question: H S of W and W

    Example answer: Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

    Questions can be places, people, items, lines from the books, collections or descriptions of the above... anything HP, really.

    Reading these has made one thing abundantly clear to me: it's been way too long since I've read the books, because I got exactly none of these at a glance.

    Thanks for doing this again, Taure. Traditions are cool.

    Some clues as people are struggling:

    6. This is a type of wizarding regulation.

    7. This is the Crimes of Grindelwald one.

    8. This relates to a potion.

    9. This quote appears in Philosopher's Stone.

    15. This is "two sets" but close enough.
