I'm going to be offline the rest of today and won't be back on until either Saturday night or Sunday. If I guessed correctly, I'm passing along my turn so I don't hold up the rest of the game. Jeanine can pick who "came in second". If I didn't guess correctly, then ignore this post.

UGH, and to clarify my previous answer; while I wouldn't consider it an object (although maybe someone else would), it is tangible. I hope that didn't further confuse.

Okay, I'm taking it back, let's say YES to the object question. In literal, dictionary definition.

To re-cap:

It is not a place.

It is not alive, nor has it ever been.

It is a magical object.

It is not a patronus.

It can be difficult to know how to answer some questions due to the whole magic thing!

Is it at Hogwarts?

kathirynne: Is it mentioned in all of the books?

Yes.

Kirsten: Is it at Hogwarts?

Yes, you could find it there (see hint).

Cate: Is it a potion?

No.

I have to give a hint because I think it's needed...

It's not singular, there are multiples.

LOL, I knew that would be the next guess.

No.


Here's another hint...

It's found in wizarding homes, but you'd also find it in Hermione Granger's muggle home.
