Chapter: What's in the Third Floor Corridor!?

Hmmm. I can tell from this story that you belong in Ravenclaw(meaning that the story was very clever). Sadly, I did not get the anagram and suspected it was Draco Malfoy and that he had a secret passion for the Quibbler. Forgive my stupidity. I loved how crazy it was! The theories were amazingly far-fetched. This was a very accurate portrayal of Xenophilius Lovegood, in my eyes. I also thought that the made up creatures not mentioned in the books, seemed like they could have easily been made up by Xeno. Great job!

BB.
Oh My Prongs and Holy Zechad. That was BRILLIANT and HILARIOUS. I LOVED IT - even more than Henry's story. I laughed and I shook my head and I laughed some more and even gasped a few times. You have a real knack for both clever and biting humor. I love how smart and witty yet ridiculous it is, and yet it never feels contrived. It's just brilliant.

For exmaple:
It seems patently clear that Severus Snape is suffering from a dreadful infestation of these Magyckal and Moste Fearfulle Flimmers, as described in Annika “Mad as a Hatter” Antebellum's Anthology of Actual (I Swear They're Real, I Don't Need a Healer!) Animals.
That's better than JKR, I swear.

As is:
Quezacotl the Queer Doing Battle with Humely the Hungry Horntail.
It's like Rowling only without a filter, lol.

And then this beautiful sentence:
It rivalled even the fetor of a dozen Dabberblimps decomposing to their death, and we all know what a rank that rises.
Brilliant consonance and still hysterical!

I was reminded of Henry with this one:
A conscience that pricked him the way the memory of that one time you accidentally knocked over and killed a hippopotamus while skinny-flying on a broomstick through Ireland pricks you every now and then.
Skinny-flying? Please write more about that!

I can definitely hear Henry saying something like:
The next few months passed like poo—sometimes agonizingly slowly, sometimes speeding along like diarrhea.
That's one of those sentences where I cringed whilst laughing. Brilliant.

I loved the Secret Society of Scaly and Scary Stepdaughters, as well as Cholomondoley the Cheeky Chimpanzee and all the other creatures and characters you casually mention. It gives the story such depth and verisimilitude. And humor. How did you think of all this? And did you laugh to yourself while writing? Because have I mentioned it was hilarious?

But my favorite, favorite part had to be the descriptions of the professors. Oh Godric, that was brilliant. Too funny, too clever, too true. Loved it, especially the pairings. And Snape - great line about fruit flies. LOLOL!

At first I thought it was Dumbledore himself writing the letters, but the part about the professors seemed a bit mean for him to be writing. Then came the line about Prefect Percy and I sort of wondered, only I didn't give them much thought. So it was a grinning surprise to see who Filch brought up to Dumbledore, and Dumbledore's last line was perfect.

Fantastic job, BB. You have a wonderful style that I have enjoyed reading tremendously throughout this challenge. Good luck!

Very clever. Of course Xeno would run a story on the vault. I must admit that your anagrams didn't register, though I had a suspicion that it would have to be the twins to come up with something that clever. Your bogus letters were pure comedy with enough intelligence to be believable. Very good story!
