She was just starting to close up her books and put away her homework in preparation for sleep, Padma and Mandy stacking up their own books across the table from her, when Harry Potter walked into the Ravenclaw common room; and it was only then that she realized, she hadn’t seen him at all since breakfast. That realization was rapidly stomped-on by a much more startling one. There was a golden-red winged creature on Harry’s shoulder, a bright bird of fire. And Harry looked sad and worn and really tired like the phoenix was the only thing keeping him on his feet, but there was still a warmth about him, if you crossed your eyes you might have thought you were looking at the Headmaster somehow, that was the impression that went through Hermione’s mind even though it didn’t make any sense. Harry Potter trudged across the Ravenclaw common room, past sofas full of staring girls, past cardgame-circles of staring boys, heading for her. In theory she wasn’t talking to Harry Potter yet, his week wasn’t up until tomorrow, but whatever was going on was clearly a whole lot more important than that – “Fawkes,” Harry said, just as she was opening her mouth, “that girl over there is Hermione Granger, she’s not talking to me right now because I’m an idiot, but if you want to be on a good person’s shoulder she’s better than me. Hermione stared at it, feeling like she was facing a question on a test she’d forgotten to study for, the one most important question and she’d gone her whole life without studying for it, she couldn’t find anything to say.

The Un-Champion Harry was really peeved as he waited for Mr. Weasley to come get him so he could go join the Weasleys for the rest of the summer. That choice of words caused a smile to come to him. He wondered if the reason the poltergeist at school was the way he was, was because he had been peeved so many times that he had finally gone over the edge.

Harry could not remember any time Peeves had been serious about anything; he was always quite “mad”. He heaved a big sigh. Just a few more minutes and then he should be able to leave this forsaken house and his so-called relatives.

Jun 21,  · Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix has 2,, ratings and 33, reviews. Diane ϟ [ Lestrange ] said: Interview with JK Rowling Stephen Fry.

At the age of one, Harry’s parents are killed by Lord Voldemort , who then attempts to kill him with the Killing Curse. Due to The Power of Love from his mother’s self-sacrifice, however, he survives and rebounds the curse upon Voldemort, getting a lightning bolt-shaped scar as a souvenir. The series’ resident Eccentric Mentor , Dumbledore, then arranges to have his Muggle aunt and uncle take him in For ten long years, they grudgingly comply, forcing Harry to live in the cupboard under the stairs and being both cruel and neglectful of him.

Harry’s bullying cousin, Dudley, doesn’t make things any easier. Then, shortly before his eleventh birthday, everything changes. Letters from “no one” begin arriving in Harry’s “home” , growing by the number each day. Harry’s aunt and uncle, acting suspiciously, refuse to allow him to read even one, and after several days, leave the house and go to a tiny house in a cliff in the middle of a storm. Unfortunately for the Dursleys , the ones who sent the letters are not deterred by such means, and Harry is eventually told of his past, and the wizarding world.

Thus, Harry’s adventures at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry begin, starting off as lighthearted, and growing darker in nature each year, as he makes friends, learns of his destiny, and matures. Nineteen years after he defeats Voldemort for good, he’s married to Ginny Weasley and is the father of three children: However, in other areas of magic he tends to be anywhere from poor to a bit above average.

The lightning-shaped scar created by Voldemort starts aching whenever Harry is close to him, and in the later books, whenever Voldemort is feeling a particularly strong emotion. The “I must not tell lies” scars on his hand that he received from detentions with a Sadist Teacher in his fifth year tingle when he thinks of her.

Sirius Black was in his box, looking every inch the Earl of Blackmoor.

High Witch Emerta Réamonn didn’t like her and Hermione wasn’t sure why. The woman had been polite but standoffish since their introduction and she could tell .

She stated that the idea of “this scrawny, black-haired, bespectacled boy who didn’t know he was a wizard became more and more real to me”. She explained in a interview with The Guardian: Hogwarts has to be a boarding school—half the important stuff happens at night! Then there’s the security. Having a child of my own reinforces my belief that children above all want security, and that’s what Hogwarts offers Harry.

However, she maintained that Harry was not directly based on any real-life person: He attempted to kill Harry too, but was unsuccessful and only left a lightning bolt shaped scar on Harry’s forehead. Voldemort’s body was destroyed, but his soul was not. Harry later learns that the reason why he survived was because his mother sacrificed herself for him, and her love was something that Voldemort could not destroy. According to Rowling, fleshing out this back story was a matter of reverse planning: When he was one year old, the most evil wizard for hundreds and hundreds of years attempted to kill him.

Harry and Lord Voldemort are family Unpleasant, yet inevitable in the small, slightly incestuous wizarding world. The key to this is Harry’s Invisibility Cloak, which was left to him by his father, James, a direct descendant of Ignotus Peverell — one of the three brothers who possessed one hallow a means to achieve immortality apiece and became the stuff of wizarding legend. Much as Harry and Voldemort share a prophesy and a phoenix feather in their wands, they also share the Peverells, hence why the Dark Lord was in possession of another hallow: Savvy readers would have sussed this out from careful reading of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but JK Rowling confirmed that the pair are “distantly related” through the Peverells, saying: Professor Dumbledore is gay One of Rowling’s best-received revelations, and yet also one she continues to explain and defend.
