Transfiguration Trivia - Answer!
I guess my Transfiguration Trivia question was a difficult question, as no one really guessed everything I was looking for.
But congratulations are in order for Emma who was the first and only person to answer the first question: What are the rules that govern transfiguration? The correct response is Gamp's Law of Elemental Transfiguration. And Emma was right about when they are mentioned in the Harry Potter series: Hermione tells Harry and Ron about them in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
As for my second question (What things cannot be created through transfiguration?) — more simply put: what are the five exceptions to Gamp's Law? Most of you guessed food, which was Hermione's point when talking about Gamp's Law with Harry and Ron. As for the other four, well, I guess I have to admit this is a bit of a trick question, as we don't know for sure. Most people agree that true love is probably one of these exceptions. And I've seen human life and money guessed time and time again. If those guesses are right, that gives us four exceptions, but there should be five.
That means technically, anyone who makes a guess is a winner! So, what do you think the fifth exception is?
