Power hungry Slytherin

Those cunning folk use any

Excellent job Emma.

Um... I am confused... Are we supposed to translate this -into- Parseltongue, or... what?

I have posted the credits for the quotations on my blog... Am I missing something?

Elizabeth Spinner said...

My translation is now on my blog.

Apparently you have to have the font I used for the Parseltongue on your system. I don't think the International House Members received the statements in symbols at all. I was not aware of this until Emma D. emailed me. Sorry Ingrid, it looks like you did not get to play either.

Ah. I see. Perhaps overhearing the exchange student from Durmstrang muttering in her sleep all the time really did subconsciously force parseltongue into some of our brains. .. I wonder what else she planted in our minds while we slept!

(I see now what happened. That was a really neat idea!) =)
