Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince comes out in DVD a week from today, and we are giving away three of them to only the most devoted Potter fans.

We've asked a local expert to work up a 20-question quiz. Now, we've read all the books and seen all the movies, so we expected to do somewhat all right on this thing. We knew we'd get stumped if it was to go so obscure as to ask the names of Ron Weasley's twin brothers (Fred and....Durst?), but we thought we might have a fighting chance.

Then we took a look at it. This is for the True Followers only.

We're posting the full quiz at 6 p.m. Friday; the first three fans who get all 20 questions correct in an e-mail to hairballscontest@houstonpress.com, with "Harry Potter Contest" in the header, get the DVDs.

But believe us, you'll need help. So here's one of the questions, giving you plenty of Googling time.

After Sirius dies, what command does Harry use to verify that Kreacher belongs to him now?

Our guesses:

a) Hey, Kreacher!! Here, boy!!!
b) The Verifius Kreacherus command
c)  Press L1, L2, R1, R2(2), R1, L2, Triangle (For PS2 Kreachers only).
d) The "Who's Your Daddy" command

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
