* Take a sip every time there's a ShoutOut to something geeky. Make it a shot if it's an anime reference. Two shots if it's a sci-fi novel.
** Three shots if it makes no sense. EG, Slytherins referencing Death Note.
* Take a shot every time a scientific study is cited in the narration. Make it two if it's cited in actual dialogue, or is EY's own. Take three if both.
* Take a shot every time Harry snaps his fingers. If a character other than Harry snaps their fingers, make it two.
* Take a shot every time Harry acts bratty or condescending.
* Take a shot every time someone doesn't understand Harry.
* Take a shot every time Harry thinks about/comments on the wizarding world being stupid. Make it two if Quidditch is mentioned in this context.

* Take a shot every time Quirrell does (or is mentioned to have done) something absurdly awesome.
* Take a shot every time Hermione is jealous of Harry.
* Take a shot every time a female character acts according to Elizer's understanding of women, not according to their characters.
* Someone thinking in story terms:
** One shot if it's Dumbledore.

** Three shots if it's a female character who ThinksLikeARomanceNovel.
** Four shots if it's none of the above.
* Two shots if a DiabolusExMachina happens
* Two shots every time someone is mean to Hermione for a stupid reason.
