Chapter : Number Twelve Grimmauld Place
- George Weasley: “Hello, Harry. We thought we heard your dulcet tones.”
- Fred Weasley: “You don’t want to bottle up your anger like that, Harry, let it all out. There might be a couple of people fifty miles away who didn’t hear you.”
- The Weasley twins, about Harry’s anger.

As for Percy, the Weasley children sadly reveal he has deserted their family after he and Arthur had a fight over Percy’s recent promotion to Cornelius Fudge’s Junior Assistant. Having denied his father’s claims that Fudge is using him, with his unwavering loyalty to the Ministry, Percy has moved away, breaking off contact in the process, even after a depressed Molly Weasley tried to straighten things out. Harry also learns that the Ministry has been using the Daily Prophet to build on what Rita Skeeter started and is portraying Harry as some “attention-seeking liar”. Hermione also reveals there have been no articles on the Dementor attack or Harry’s hearing, since the Ministry is likely waiting until the hearing is over before reporting on the likelihood of Harry being expelled. After being called down for dinner, Tonks accidentally trips on an umbrella stand, which causes too much noise, and the portrait of a woman responds with strong cursing. While helping on closing the curtains, Sirius shows up and reveals the woman in the portrait is his mother.

- “That’s exactly what thinks you’re doing, or rather, that’s exactly what he’s afraid Dumbledore’s doing – forming his own private army, with which he will be able to take on the Ministry of Magic.”
- Sirius, about the Minister of Magic
On Saturday morning, despite Hermione’s warning, Harry decides to write a letter to Sirius. Harry writes about his detention and asks about Hagrid’s whereabouts, though he carefully codes the words and phrases in case the letter is intercepted. After sending Hedwig with the letter, Harry notices the same mysterious winged horses he saw before outside. Cho Chang arrives and praises Harry for standing up to Umbridge in her class, before Argus Filch arrives. He claims that he heard from a source that Harry was sending an order for Dungbombs, but Harry states that he already sent his letter, which Cho confirms. After Harry arrives at breakfast, Hermione reads through the Daily Prophet. She discovers that the Ministry has received a tip that Sirius Black is hiding in London. Harry worries that Lucius Malfoy may be the source, as he may have recognised Sirius in his Animagus form at King’s Cross Station.

While packing, Harry sees the two-way mirror that Sirius gave him, and tries to call his godfather, but he sees nothing. Then suddenly he has the idea to talk to Nearly Headless Nick, and ask him if Sirius could come back as a ghost. Nick says that Sirius is not the kind of wizard who would do that, which leaves Harry disappointed and sad. After boarding the Hogwarts Express, Malfoy, Crabbe, and Goyle attempted to ambush him, but had unwisely attempted to ambush Harry in front of a compartment full of D.A. members. By the time they were done using a wide variety of jinxes and hexes Harry had taught them, Malfoy, Crabbe and Goyle resembled nothing more than slugs forced into Hogwarts robes. Later, at King’s Cross Station, Harry is surprised to find that Mad-Eye Moody, Tonks and Lupin are there to greet him and to ask the Dursleys to treat him better this summer. Ron and Hermione say goodbye to Harry with the promise that they will meet very soon.

Chapter : The Order Of The Phoenix
Dinner is served at Order’s Headquarters
- ““The Order is comprised only of overage wizards. Wizards who have left school,” he added, as Fred and George opened their mouths. “There are dangers involved of which you can have no idea, any of you…””
- Remus Lupin
Harry learns that Voldemort is keeping a low profile and is building an army. Though Harry managed to escape during Voldemort’s rebirth, allowing Dumbledore to reactivate the Order of the Phoenix, it is difficult for them to convince as many people what has happened because of the Ministry and Fudge’s position, since Fudge believes that Dumbledore is after his job his fears make it easier for him to believe that, rather than admit Voldemort is back, which would end the last fourteen years of peace. Another reason the Order is having trouble with finding allies is the issue of their credibility. Sirius is a wanted murderer, Lupin is a werewolf, and the members that work for the Ministry would lose their jobs since Fudge is willing to sack anyone just for disagreeing with him. Fudge has also been trying to discredit Dumbledore’s reputation to prevent him from spreading the information, and is having the Daily Prophet cover up any news related to this. Sirius attempts to mention that Voldemort is trying to retrieve a “weapon…something he didn’t have last time”, before Molly and Lupin ask him to stop, and they then send the kids off to bed.
Chapter 1: Detention With Dolores
- “This is your punishment for spreading evil, nasty, attentionseeking stories, Mr Potter.”
- Umbridge about Harry’s detention
Word quickly spreads amongst the students about Harry’s behaviour in Umbridge’s class that night at dinner, creating more snide remarks. After they leave the Great Hall, Hermione explains to an irritated Harry that despite Dumbledore’s speech at the end of the last school term about Voldemort’s return, the Ministry’s interference over the last two months prevented the truth from sinking in. When they return to their common room, the trio talk about Umbridge and her class. Hermione points out Umbridge was obviously sent by Fudge as a spy. When the other students return from dinner, Hermione catches Fred and George once again testing their joke products on first year students. Though Fred and George mean no harm, as they tested their products on themselves first, Hermione threatens to write to their mother if they continue to test them on first years. Hermione then goes to bed and also mentions the woolly hats she brought are for the house-elves, confirming she is still doing her S.P.E.W. work.

Chapter : The Ministry Of Magic
- “If I’m not expelled from Hogwarts, I’ll put in ten Galleons”
- Harry, promising to put coins on the Fountain of Magical Brethren
The next day, Harry heads down to breakfast and learns that Amelia Bones will be in charge of his hearing, and Tonks assures him that she is fair. Sirius reminds Harry not to lose his temper during the hearing. Harry is nervous over the possibility of being expelled from Hogwarts, but Lupin assures Harry that underage wizards are allowed to use magic in life-threatening situations. Arthur Weasley then escorts Harry to the Ministry for his disciplinary hearing using the train in the London Underground to get there . After spending time on the lift getting to the Department of Magical Law Enforcement and then putting on an act with Kingsley about Sirius Black . Shortly after arriving in Mr Weasley’s office, Mr Weasley’s co-worker, Perkins, runs in announcing that the hearing’s time and location has been changed, and Harry is already late. The new location is in old Courtroom Ten in the Ministry’s basement. Since the lift does not descend that far, Harry and Mr Weasley race down the stairs the rest of the way after getting off. Just outside the courtroom, Mr Weasley stops, telling Harry that he must face the hearing alone.
Harry at his disciplinary hearing
Chapter : The Hearing
- “Oh, I don’t think any of us believe the Dementors were there by coincidence.”
- Dumbledore, at Harry’s hearing
Harry recognises the courtroom is the same one he saw in Dumbledore’s Pensieve during his last school year. Cornelius Fudge is acting as the head of the Wizengamot, and Harry is also surprised to see Percy Weasley acting as scribe, although Percy refuses to look at Harry. After Dumbledore arrives, Fudge starts the trial without giving Harry a chance to defend himself. Once Harry gets the chance to explain about the Dementors, Fudge labels his statement a convenient lie, but Dumbledore is able to produce a reliable witness: Mrs Figg, whom Percy brings in. Mrs Figg is able to describe the attack and confirms that the Dementors attacked Harry and Dudley.
When Fudge points out the unlikelihood of Dementors in Little Whinging, Dumbledore suggests that someone within the Ministry ordered them there. Fudge, however, refuses to accept any of this as evidence and while Dumbledore reminds him that magic can be used in these extraordinary circumstances. Fudge dismisses this, given Harry’s past issues, reminding them of the illegal use of a Hover Charm three years ago. While this was Dobby‘s fault, Fudge refuses Dumbledore’s suggestion to bring him in and also brings up the fact that Harry inflatedhis aunt a year later, even though no charges were pressed.
