Harry Potter and the Pictogram Challenge Part V

What’s this? We’re having some issues getting started here.

High Inquisitor: As High Inquisitor, acting under authority granted by Educational Decree Number 29 [sic], I expressly forbid this extracurricular activity from commencing.

Ugh. I don’t care if you cancel quidditch, but this is important! If this about that rebus/pictogram discrepancy they keep bothering me about, I’ve already settled that with the Wizengamot of Wikipedia. 

Ron Weasley, can you help us out here?
image
All: Yayy!

That took care of Umbridge, but unfortunately, the pipe bomb also blew a bunch of our magical words to pieces! You must help Ron and pals reassemble — blah blah blah. Without further, love.

Discover the word represented by each clue, then Spell-O-Tape them together to form a magical term. The answer can be a creature, a person, a spell, etc.
image
Example: Patron + Ness = Patronus

Clues may contain fragments of one more magical words and sounds sometimes get splinched and warped into rather ghastly forms. Remember wizards and witches, as the wand chooses the wizard, let the image choose the word. Ready?

Like a Hogwarts fifth year. Get it on.

Okay, half-time! Hopefully you didn’t lose too many house points along the way. That was the easy half — let’s keep at it.

BONUS: The bonus puzzle is a phrase and doesn’t use the (+) sign leaving mild ambiguity as to the order of the clues. The solution never gets posted, so no spoilers!

And we’re done!

Enjoy these puzzles? You might check out Part 1, try Part 2, solve Part 3, or give Part 4 a go.  Thanks for playing!

Solve all these?  In case your name is not Hermione, the chamber of secret answers is after the jump.

Mischief managed!

I’ve shown great restraint today. I’ve aspired to take joy that loved ones are joyful. Today belongs to them. A thoughtful response tomorrow.

Peggy and Ted

Pray tell, what is the difference, effectively, between what Ted did regarding Peggy and a “hit it & quit it” procedure? I cannot think of a meaningful distinction. So he’s “in love” with her. So what? Office side pieces come and go, Mad Men has assured us of that. Love is an action, not a feeling, Ted and you followed through on zero things you said in the afterglow. Don was right about you.
