Chapter 5-25 The Beetle at Bay

  • They find out why Voldemort was so happy. The next morning Daily Prophet has an article about ten Death Eaters who escaped from Azkaban. It shows the names and crimes they had been convicted for. Among them Antonin Dolohov who was convicted for the murder of Gideon and Fabian Prewett, Augustus Rookwood who was convicted for leaking Ministry secrets to Voldemort and Bellatrix Lestrange who was convicted for the torture and permanent incapitation of Frank and Allice Longbottom. The Ministry had announced the breakout last night, Cornelius Fudge the Minister said he thinks it's related to Sirius Black's escape last year, presuming Sirius was their outside help.
  • The newspaper also contains an article about Broderick Bode who was found dead in his bed at St Mungo's, strangled by a pot plant. Healer Miriam Strout who was in charge of the ward has been suspended. The article also stated the pot plant was a cutting of Devil's Snare. Hermione thinks Bode was murdered intentionally. She suddenly has some insight and leaves to send a letter to someone.
  • Hagrid is on probation.
  • Word spreads around about the Death Eaters escape. Susan Bones, whose uncle, aunt and cousins all had died at the hands of some of them, tells Harry during Herbology while they work on Screechsnap seedlings that she now had a good idea what it felt like to be him. It seems the whole school now starts to think differently about Harry.
  • Umbridge announces another decree which states teachers can not give students non-subject related. Lee Jordan 'uses' it to argue with Umbridge she can't tell Fred and George off for playing Exploding Snap in the back of the class. He gets the same punishment Harry got and Harry recommends him essence of Murtlap.
  • All Divination and Care of Magical Creatures classes are now inspected by Umbridge, either Hagrid or Trelawney likely will get sacked. Trelawney increasingly hysterical talks get regularly interrupted with questions about Ornithomancy and Heptomology. Hagrid is also not doing well in teaching his classes when Umbridge is inspecting.
  • In DA everybody is improving, Neville made more progress then anybody, working relentlessly on every new jinx and counter-curse that Harry thought them. He was improving so fast that he was the second one after Hermione to master the Shield Charm that Harry teaches them at some point.
  • Harry's scar is irritating almost nonstop and dreaming of the corridor every day.
  • On Valentine's Day Harry after Hermione receives a letter, she asks him to meet her in the Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade at three. He meets with Cho. They talk about Quidditch, and Oliver Wood. Cho thought he got taken by Pride of Portree but Harry says it was Puddlemere United.
  • At Dervish and Banges they see a poster announcing rewards to tips leading to recapture of escaped Death Eaters. They both think it's strange that there are no Dementors all around, like the time that Sirius escaped.
  • Next they go to Madam Puddifoot's which is full of couples. Madam Puddifoot brings them drinks. Harry asks Cho to come with him in the afternoon to meet Hermione and Cho suddenly turns more distant. Cho starts to talk about Cedric but Harry does not want to talk about him. Cho becomes all upset and leaves.
  • Harry goes to the Three Broomsticks. He sees Hagrid who start to talk some hardly understandable stuff about family and all. He meets early with Hermione who is sitting at a table with Luna and Rita Skeeter. Hermione thinks it's a good idea for Harry to now publicly tell his story about Voldemort's return, the Death Eaters he saw and everything. The Prophet will certainly not print it but Luna's father (Mr Lovegood) is the editor of the Quibbler and he'll publish it. Harry tells his story
