do you think a person who isn't usually able to answer riddles is 'less of a ravenclaw'? because im academically brilliant (in the way that i read a page and I can't recite it perfectly) but I cannot solve those and it kinda makes me insecure ???
(the eagle doesn’t actually ask you riddles. jkr has always said QUESTION rather than riddle because it’s a philosophical question designed to make you think rather than a riddle based on word play. it’s not about getting the right answer it’s about the thought process behind it)
