Things I Am No Longer
Allowed to Do at Hogwarts


 


---



Stolen blatantly from this
person's LiveJournal
, picked out my favorites, and edited for spelling,
grammar, and in a few cases, content.



Entries in green are ones I thought
up while compiling this list.




---


No matter how good a fake
Australian accent I can do, I will not imitate Steve Irwin during Care of
Magical Creatures class.


---


Growing marijuana or hallucinogenic
mushrooms is not "an extra credit project for Herbology."

"I've heard every possible joke about
Oliver Wood's name" is not a challenge.


---


The Giant Squid is not an appropriate
date to the Yule Ball.


---


I will not use Umbridge's quill to
write "I told you I was hardcore."


---


Polishing my wand in the common room
is acceptable. "Polishing my wand" in the common room is not.


---


If a classmate falls asleep, I will
not take advantage of that fact and draw a Dark Mark on their arm.

Starting a betting pool on the fate
of this year's Defense Against Dark Arts teacher is tasteless and tacky, not a
clever money-making concept.

Lucky Charms."

as "bookends."

Ravenwolf on the library shelves.

cat, or owl. I am not allowed to have a reticulated python, snow leopard,
Tasmanian devil, or piranha.

I will stop asking the Arithmancy
teacher what the square root of -1 is.

prefects' bath to "Makes getting clean almost as much fun as getting dirty."


---


There is no such thing as an
Invisibility Thong.


---


Asking "How do you keep a Gryffindor
in suspense?" and walking away is only funny the first time.


---


I will not offer to pose nude for
Colin Creevey.

I will not offer to pose nude for
Dean Thomas.

---


My name is not Captain Subtext.


---


Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab does not
sell potions ingredients, and I will not resell their products as "Veela
Pheromones."

council. Even if it did, they would not wear the rose seal. Therefore I will
cease going after the prefects with a sword.

Invisibility charm again.

While wand safety is an important
issue, I am no longer allowed to distribute any pamphlet which makes reference

It is generally accepted that Cats
and Dragons cannot interbreed and I should not attempt to disprove this theory,
no matter how wicked the result would be.

I will not give any girl a one half
of a set of two way mirrors as a Christmas present.

Professor Snape's desk to prove this last is unacceptable behavior.

professors' or prefects' orders.

May not mock Professor Umbridge in
front of the press.

American exchange students to Gryffindor or Slytherin House in Harry Potter's
Year are Lockhart's misbegotten heirs, even if it's true.


---


When someone accuses me of not
wearing any drawers, I should ignore them. Attempting to prove them wrong is
indecent.


---


-Especially if I can't.


---


If someone's House Badge is green and
mine is purple, it means they are in Slytherin House. It does not mean "The
Sorting Hat thinks they're dumber than me."

Using the Engorgio charm on certain
parts of the human anatomy is not permitted on the school grounds, not even for
entertainment purposes.


---


First years are not to be fed to
Fluffy.

Hagrid does not have sex with magical
creatures, I should stop implying that he does.


---


House Elf stew is not on the Hogwarts
menu, neither is Niffler Curry, so I should stop asking.

My wand does not vibrate.

There is no "open mic night" at

Peter Pettigrew should be paying Narcissa child support.


---


I will not tell the Muggle-born
first-years that the Forbidden Forest's real name is Mirkwood.


---


I am not to conjure the words "DRINK
ME" onto the vial of any potion in Snape's classroom.


---


I will not go to any fundamentalist
websites and argue that Voldemort is a direct contradiction of the concept of
"intelligent design."

feet, have it walk across a parchment, and sell the result as cheat sheets for
Ancient Runes, even though Crabbe and Goyle keep falling for it.

I will not refer to the accio charm
as "The Force."

A Muggle "vacuum cleaner" is not
acceptable Quidditch equipment, even if it has been enchanted to fly.

Hogsmeade village is not "a wretched
hive of scum and villainy."

Not allowed to lock Harry Potter and
Draco Malfoy in a closet to see if hot gay sex will occur.


---


-Not allowed to lock anyone in a
closet to see if any kind of sex will occur.


---


"Y'all check this-here shit out!" is
not an appropriate way to announce that you are about to perform an experimental
spell.


---


Neither is "Fire in
the hole!"


---


I will not refer to Professor
Umbridge as the Wicked Witch of the West.


---


He who should not be named is not the
artist formerly known as Prince and I will not tell first years such.


---


Lucius Malfoy is not my "sugar daddy"
and I will not claim he is.

edible.


---


-Not allowed to make any part of the
school uniform edible.


---


Never, ever, attempt to correct
Professor Moody about anything.


---


The following words and phrases may
not be used near any Slytherins or Gryffindors, as Madam Pomfrey has enough
work without adding an aneurysm epidemic to her workload: budding sexuality,
sexual lubrication, all Gryffindors are latent homosexuals, all Slytherins are
blatant homosexuals, slut puppy, or any references to the Giant Squid.


---


Will not offer to sell Hagrid new
creatures.

them.

giggle for longer than 15 seconds, I am to assume that I am not allowed to do

matter.

to Hogwarts, A History that explains about Bilbo Baggins.

forgivable."

The Whomping Willow is not an

inconsiderate bitch."

believe it.


---


I will not charm a potato to waltz up
and down a aisle with me.


---

have a magical creature for him to tame… in my pants.


---


I am no longer allowed to sing my
“own personal spy music” when I wander around the hallways.


---


Doing a strip-tease every time I
change in my dormitory is not only distracting but vile.

clothing in the presence of others.

Kicking people and then running away
is a good way to get yourself hexed.


---


Yelling “BOO!” at Professor Moody is
not wise.

Remarking “that’s what your mom said
last night” to anything anyone else says was only marginally funny the first
time.


---

Harry.


---


-Sirius, however, finds it funny.


---


There are no house cheerleaders and I
am not one of them.

Putting a Snitch in Malfoy's pants
really isn't all that funny.


---

a girl.
