A very nerdy question coming up, for all the fan-girls....
So, today at work I was talking about the Harry Potter books with two other people who are also big fans. And this question came up...If no one can Apperate/Disapperate at Hogwarts, how did the final Portkey (the Cup) work in Book 4. Any opinions?
From what I understand of the Portkey, I think it had to do with the rules of the competetion. With apperation and disapperations, normally it is done without a physical trigger. The Portkey, as a solid object, was used like a telephone wire sending a call, the portkey just sends a person. Plus the competetion was done as a separate thing from the school, so maybe it had it's own laws of magic attached to it.
Can you tell I have given this a lot of thought LOL!
Supposedly the next 2 books are also almost finished.
