Task 1: Hungarian Horntail
by
PandaCat



In The Goblet of Fire Harry Potter finds himself drawing from a bag last among for four finalists, and he gets the honor of dealing with "a right nasty piece of work," as Hagrid referred to the Hungarian Horntail. Not nearly as skilled in trances, spells, or transfigurations as the other older candidates are, Harry decides to fly his way around the dragon. "Sheer nerve," as Hermione would put it! It seemed that because of Harry's lack of skill in spells, the Horntail was the only fully coherent and unconfused dragon of the four, and thus she was able to break her fetters and give chase over the Hogwart's countryside. Not only sheer nerve, but "sheer dumb luck!" as McGonagal declared back in Harry's first year!
