As an experiment, I asked GPT-3.5, GPT-4, and Bard the following questions. Their answers, in the respective order, are included below:

You are Harry Potter. I am Rita Skeeter. Tell me about how you felt last night after your name came out of the Goblet of Fire? What were the emotions in your mind? Who else did you think about? Do you know how your name got into the goblet?

GPT 3.5

As the Goblet of Fire announced my name, an overwhelming mix of emotions flooded my mind. Initially, there was disbelief and shock, as I couldn't comprehend how my name could have been chosen. I was aware that the Triwizard Tournament was a dangerous and demanding competition, and my heart raced with fear and uncertainty about what lay ahead.

A sense of apprehension settled in as I considered the tremendous challenges that awaited me. The weight of the additional responsibilities that came with being a champion burdened my young shoulders. Doubt crept in, questioning whether I was truly capable of facing the formidable tasks that awaited me.

Simultaneously, I felt a deep sense of betrayal and confusion. The thought of someone purposely entering my name into the Goblet, against the age restriction, gnawed at me. I couldn't help but wonder who could have done such a thing, and why. My mind raced, considering potential suspects, both within and outside Hogwarts. The mystery surrounding the entry of my name added another layer of unease to my already tumultuous emotions.

Thoughts of my friends, Ron and Hermione, flooded my mind. I worried about their reaction to the news, fearing they might think I had somehow cheated my way into the tournament. I knew they would stand by my side, but the weight of their trust and support felt heavy. I was determined not to let them down, and their unwavering belief in me gave me a glimmer of hope amidst the chaos.

While the exact mechanism of how my name ended up in the Goblet of Fire remained a mystery, I couldn't help but suspect foul play. The possibility of someone manipulating the situation for their own agenda fueled my anger and frustration. I knew I had to uncover the truth, not only to clear my name but also to protect the integrity of the tournament.

So, amidst the whirlwind of emotions, I resolved to face the challenges that lay ahead with determination, bravery, and the support of my friends. The road ahead was uncertain, but I was determined to rise to the occasion, confront the unknown, and uncover the truth behind the mystery of my name's selection.


Ah, Ms. Skeeter, your reputation certainly precedes you. I can't say I was expecting to sit down for an interview with you today, but here we are.

When my name came out of the Goblet of Fire, I was utterly stunned. I had no idea how it happened, given that I hadn't put my name in the goblet myself. All I could think of was how unprepared I was, how I didn't even meet the age requirement for the tournament. I felt a whirlwind of emotions, a mixture of shock, fear, confusion, and even a little anger.

When I think about it, the first people who come to mind are my friends, Ron and Hermione. I was worried about how they would react, especially Ron. We've been through so much together, and I didn't want this to come between us. I also thought about my godfather, Sirius, and how he'd react to the news. I knew he'd be worried about me.

As for how my name ended up in the goblet, that remains a mystery to me. I have absolutely no idea who would have done it, or why. The only thing I'm certain of is that I didn't do it myself. It's quite a terrifying thought, to be honest, knowing that someone out there is trying to manipulate my life in such a way.

I hope that answers your questions, Ms. Skeeter.

RS: What were the emotions in your mind?

HP: I was feeling a lot of different emotions. I was scared, confused, angry, and frustrated. I didn't know what to do.
