That would be canon correctness wouldn’t it? We’re not into artillery here!

Sounds like a good contest, I look forward to reading the eventual winners.

@moglet, good catch! I always have a laugh when people substitute ‘cannon’ for ‘canon.’ We all know that wizards and witches don’t need gunpowder to create loud noises, smokes and explosions.

You are correct…no artillery, please. (we’re sorry that mistake slipped by all of us) We also ask that you not send any cursed items with your entry, such as hats, necklaces, etc.
Thank you,

Guess That Book

"Are you threatening me, sir?" he said, so loudly that passersby actually turned to stare.[br]"Yes, I am," said Mad-Eye, who seemed rather pleased that Uncle Vernon had grasped this fact so quickly.
