"The Thief 's Downfall!" said Griphook, clambering to his feet and looking back at the deluge onto the tracks, which, Harry knew now, had been more than water. "It washes away all enchantment, all magical concealment! They know there are impostors in Gringotts, they have set off defenses against us!"
-Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows


Now, imagine it would have been you trying to sneak into Gringotts. What would you do to overcome the obstacles?


T A S K

This is a writing contest. In 250-500 words, describe how you surpass the following obstacles in Gringotts:
- Probity Probes at the entrance of Gringotts
- the ever-vigilant Goblins at the counters
- the Thief's Downfall
- the Dragon
- the vault door

However, as you might have guessed, there is a catch. Obviously you go into this adventure unprepared, so you may not use the following words in your entry:
- Probity Probe
- Goblin
- Thief's Downfall
- Dragon
- Lock
- Vault
