Maybe this should be moved to something like "Curse on the D.A.D.A. job" - Nick O'Demus 01:42, September 2, 2009 (UTC)

I agree Nick --Profiteor 01:46, September 2, 2009 (UTC)

Nah, otherwise we would have Hermione Granger's jinx into something like "SNEAK jinx". Yatanogarasu 18:46, September 2, 2009 (UTC)

That's not a bad idea, either. Voldemort could have had (and likely did have) more than one curse, and Hermione may have created more than one jinx. We should try to be specific. - Nick O'Demus 01:57, September 2, 2009 (UTC)

I agree again it's best to specify --Profiteor 02:01, September 2, 2009 (UTC)


Is this article fanon? I never remember it being mentioned that Tom Riddle put a curse on the position of D.A.D.A, is there a source for this that I can look at? Patr0nus ( Expecto Patronum! ) 15:35, September 14, 2009 (UTC)

JKR confirmed it in an interview, didn´t she? --Rodolphus 15:37, September 14, 2009 (UTC)

The sourced interview link in the article doesn't work, so I'm not sure. Patr0nus ( Expecto Patronum! ) 15:40, September 14, 2009 (UTC)

  1. Half-Blood Prince, Scholastic ed., ch.8, p.167 (referred to as a jinx)
  2. Half-Blood Prince, Scholastic ed., ch.20, p.446 (mentioned, but not specified)
  3. J.K. Rowling and the Live Chat,, July 30, 2007 (referred to as a jinx)
  4. Vieira, Meredith. "JK Rowling One-On-One: Part One." Today Show (NBC) , 26 July 2007 (referred to as a jinx)
It seems to be specified as a jinx rather than a curse, so I'll move it. - Nick O'Demus 17:49, September 14, 2009 (UTC)

New Name

Isn't this new name ridiculously nonspecific? --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 23:17, July 1, 2010 (UTC)

Moved it back. - Nick O'Demus 23:25, July 1, 2010 (UTC)

Um..."defense" is spelled with an "s", not a "c!" 17:00, February 23, 2011 (UTC)MirrorMirrorOnTheWall´

It isn´t in British English.--Rodolphus 17:02, February 23, 2011 (UTC)


This page looks unprofessional with the full stop, I reckon it needs to be renamed.
