QUIZ: How Well Do You Know Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows?
HULLO, and welcome to the long-awaited, much-anticipated finale to our Harry Potter quiz series!
You should know that I expected exactly 0% of you to make it this far.
But if, against all odds, you DID make it this far, then CONGRATULATIONS ARE IN ORDER! You've got an uncanny ability to navigate death traps and impossible quizzes, and I'd wager a goodly portion of Draco Malfoy's pocket money that you just might be the Chosen One.
You outlived Cedric Diggory, Albus Dumbledore, Sirius Black, and all those chickens that Ginny killed in Chamber of Secrets. You survived the Triwizard Tournament, you got the Weasleys to adopt you (basically), you earned a heckload of points for Gryffindor by breaking all sorts of school rules/endangering the lives of your friends and fellow students, you only barfed twice while asking Cho Chang to the Yule Ball, and you outfoxed Voldemort at nearly every turn, except for when he tricked you into going to the Department of Mysteries and then killed your godfather, and that one time when he took your blood in a graveyard so that he could regain human form and become nearly indestructible.
Suffice it to say, you should be very proud of yourself, and also gutted by sadness and loss and regret, feelings which will only be amplified throughout this book until you're yearning for the sweet release of death. But before that happens, let's take a minute to review the most excellent bits of Deathly Hallows!
-There's McGonagall owning everybody's shit, and Bill and Fleur's wedding, and everything Dobby did, and Ron's adorable and moronic attempts to apologize for bailing, and Kreacher, who started off as the meanest Smeagol in Mordor, transforming into an adorable Top Chef contestant with a penchant for hitting criminals and Death Eaters on the shins (see here). There's also this scene, which doesn't appear in the book, but which I LOVE, even though it's quite polarizing in the Potterhead community (WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT IT I'M DESPERATE TO KNOW).
One final thing before you begin: This quiz is Voldemort's seventh Horcrux. Conquer it, and you'll save the wizarding world, marry a dreamy redhead, and produce offspring to whom you will give inexplicably terrible names. Fail, and you bring on the end-times. But remember, even if you DO fail, Hogwarts will always be here to welcome you home.
JK. Don't even think about coming back if you get less than a 15.
(PS. If you're not caught up on quizzes, you can take 'em all below and then Apparate back over here for the FINAL SHOWDOWN.
