While Ron continues to fail miserably at Quidditch, Harry continues to fail miserably at Occlumency, maybe because his visions make him feel special…important? However, it’s not all doom and gloom this chapter. Believe it or not, Harry’s interview with Rita sends the Quibbler to reprint faster than any previous issue, even those about Crumple-Horned Snorkacks! And Trelawney’s sacking... Read more

7/23/2018
More
In one of the most suspenseful chapters of the series so far, Mr. Weasley’s life hangs in the balance as Harry struggles to convey just how serious the situation is (do they not realize how much a person bleeds when fangs that long pierce their side?).

7/2/2018
More
Memories of two jam-packed weeks of D.A. meetings are enough to buoy Harry’s spirits, but only for so long.

5.16 In the Hog’s Head

6/11/2018
More
Hermione gathers approximately 25 of her best friends for an informational meeting at the Hog’s Head, even though the Three Broomsticks probably would have been a safer bet (she’s got a LOT to learn). Fred and George order everyone butterbeers, and then weasel out of paying for them. And Harry finally has the opportunity to execute some of the... Read more

5.14 Percy and Padfoot

5/28/2018

5.12 Professor Umbridge

5/14/2018
More
Ooh, Crackpot’s feeling cranky! This chapter is a bigger downer than double potions with the Slytherins (and if that means we’re supposed to get to get matey with them, fat chance). Harry just can’t handle Ron and Hermione bickering anymore, he’s mortified when he puts his foot in his mouth with Cho, and he’s livid when Snape vanishes... Read more
