Chapter 4-36 The Parting of the Ways
- Barty Crouch is tied up.
Dumbledore takes Harry upstairs.
McGonagall is asked to guard
Barty Crouch and Snape is sent
to get Fudge who likely wants
to question Barty Crouch.
- Sirius is waiting upstairs for
him. Dumbledore tells Sirius everyting that has happened. Fawkes, the Phoenix, flies over to heal Harry's leg. Harry
has to explain in detail about his encounter with Voldemort. According to Dumbledore the connecting
Wands was the effect of a Priori Incantatem, the reverse spell
effect. It's because both wands contain a feather of Fawkes and they
will not work properly against each other. One will force the other
to regurgitate spells, the last murders the wand performed.
- Harry will stay at the Hospital wing
at night and take a Sleeping Potion.
- Next morning he hears Professor McGonagall, Snape and Fudge arguing.
Apparently Fudge took a Dementor with him for protection. The moment
it entered it performed the Dementors' Kiss on Barty Crouch. Fudge
refuses to believe Voldemort is back. Dumbledore tells Fudge he should
remove the Dementors from control of Azkaban and to send envoys to the
Giants to extend a hand of friendship, but Fudge
remains stubborn and still refuses to believe Voldemort's return. Snape
shows him the Dark Mark on his arm. Still, he is not convinced.
Before leaving he gives Harry the thousand Galleons prize money.
- Dumbledore makes arrangements to put everybody on alert, asking Mrs.
Weasley and Bill to inform Mr. Weasley. Hagrid and Madame Maxime are sent for.
- Sirius is asked to take his human shape. Dumbledore tells Snape and
Sirius to lay aside old differences. Sirius is asked to contact Lupin,
Arabella Figg, Mundungus Fletcher, the old crowd.
Snape is asked to do 'what he knows he must do'.
- Harry feels guilty about Cedric's death.
