  • Would you be afraid of entering the forbidden forest?

  8. A

    I’d sneak into the broom closet, grab my broom and go flying after dark
    I would ask if I could hold it
    either winning at chess or figuring out the riddle
    I’d be thinking of how I would beat him

  9. eaglewings360

    1. I would sneak into the kitchens.
    2. I would not be afriad if I went with fang.
    3. I would name Fluffy ‘Earnesto’
    4. I would do enchantments like ‘muggletum repelio, salvia hexia, etc’, to prevent muggles, and sight, and hearing.
    5.Catching the key.
    6. I would want to try and insult him because anything I would do would be the last thing I do, I wouldn’t defend myself becuase that’s how you die to save everyone.

  10. eaglewings360

    1. Go to the kitchens.
    2. No!
    3. Merlin
    4. ‘I’ll put enchantments on it for protection!’
    5. Catching a winged key.
    6, ‘Die to save everyone, because you’d die either way.”

  11. wizardcat438

    If I saw Voldemort I would be terrified when he tries to stun me and my wand then acts on it’s own and saves me like Harry’s did in The Deathly Hallows the chapter of the Seven Potters.

  12. Grace

    1. I would go to the kitchens for food, and maybe even just sneak around the castle and try to find secret passages.
    2. YES!! If someone (Filch) told me that there was worse things in the forest than werewolves, I have right to be frightened!
    3. I would name it Bob. Simplicity is key. The name also might mislead people to think that Bob is not a man eating dog.
    4. I would ask them to see the dragon, and would not turn them in. Dragons aren’t THAT bad!
    5.Solving the riddle by far. Not to brag, but I highly value my brains.
    6.Probably “I can beat him! Just because he is the most evil, most powerful, most twisted, err never mind. I’m done.”

  13. Iris The Potato

    YOU KNOW I WOULD BE THINKIN IF I SAW VOLDEMORT? I’d get all up in his face and say “Hey bruh! Are you jealous of my nose? Huh? I bet you wish ya had a real nose! HAHAHAHAHAHA” Then I would proceed to laugh like a crazed waffle and run away while stroking my pet unicorn. Ive got a nose

    1. Uh, I’ll sneak into the kitchen and get extra food!
    2. NOPE!
    3. Floofy
    4. I’d say: “Why, just why? Why?” When they try to answer I’ll say “No… just no…no…” Then when they try and answer AGAIN I’d say: “No, no it’s too late now. You’ve already proved your incompetence!”
    5. Solving a riddle.
    6.I’d be like: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! And then I’d say in between my screams I’ll shoot a spell!

  15. Catgymnastics173

    2. Uh, yeah! It’s called the Forbidden Forest for a REASON!
    3. I would name the head on the right Bob, the head in the middle Joe, and the head on the left Leroy.
    4. I would probably freak out. I mean, come on! It’s a dragon! How long can a person possibly think they’ll be able to keep it hidden?

  23. catgymnastics173

    I LOVE Harry Potter, so here are my answers!
    1. If I had an Invisibility Cloak, I would sneak around and buy presents for my friends and for myself! I would also skip class.
    2. I wouldn’t feel nervous if I entered the Forbidden Forest! I’ll just have some friends and a preparation and I can go!
    3. I’d call a three-headed dog Fang- like Hagrid’s boarhound!
    4. If I found out about my friend raising a dragon, I’d jump up and down and get all exited and yell, “Can I help care for it?! THIS IS SO COOL!”
    5. I’d be best at solving a riddle and drinking the correct potion. I like to be practical and smart, but also adventurous.
    6. I’d have a silent laugh inside, and think, ‘You?! You have no powers! I’ll just call Harry, and everything will be fine.’
    I hope you like Harry Potter too! I’m in Gryffindor. -catgymnastics173
