I'll be back with my thoughts later today, but meanwhile, discuss away!
1) hasn't anyone ever thought of trying that before in 400 years, and
2) didn't Dumbledore notice it on the slip of paper?
They don't have security cameras, or the equivalent, in the wizarding world? They couldn't hang a portrait up next to the Goblet or something?
How is it a binding contract if they KNOW it was cheating?
Regardless, great big red alarum bells should have been ringing when an obviously bogus name came out, especially as it was Harry Potter, and they should have called off the tournament, or at least suspended the decision until they could do some investigations. They're putting young people's lives on the line here. More of Snape criticism of DD here--he's so willing to let Harry be bait.
Whatever, I know it's a suspension of disbelief thing, but it really isn't explained well and that is sloppy and it bugs me.
Happy Monday, y'all!
Just my two cents.
What I wondered, during this read-through, is who comes up with the tasks? It seems like, if they were trying for a "safer" contest, dragons would not be the way to go. The second and third tasks seem more reasonable to me, but one of those dragons could have killed a champion long before anyone could have done anything about it.
