Hogwarts Hunt Day 5

The clue on the Hogwarts Hunt parchment today is quite odd. It is simply a blue rectangle with a series of numbers and letters on it: 0F52BA. What could that possibly mean? You check the back of the parchment for a name, location, or any kind of hint as to where you should start, but there is nothing else. Stumped, you decide that you might think more clearly once you’ve had some breakfast, so you head to the Great Hall. As you pass through the entrance hall, you take a quick look at the House Cup standings – the levels of the gems in the hourglasses on the wall are pretty close. Just a few points won or deducted could mean a lot at this time of year.

There aren’t many students in the Great Hall yet, but Luna Lovegood is sitting alone and waves you over.

“How are preparations for the Pride celebration coming?” she asks dreamily.

“Well, to be honest, I’m a little stuck right now,” you admit.

“Oh, that’s too bad,” Luna says. “But you never know when inspiration might strike.”

She gazes up at the ceiling, which shows a clear, cloudless blue sky. You look up as well, your eyes skimming the enchanted ceiling and the Ravenclaw banner overhead before coming back down to the parchment you’ve laid out on the table. Surely you need something blue, but what? You’re not going to steal the banner. Are there any blueberries at breakfast today? But that code must mean something, and it must point to an ingredient you can find somewhere within the castle or grounds…
