  • If it hadn’t been for him, nobody would even have known Voldemort was back!
  • Had they deserted Azkaban and joined Voldemort, as Dumbledore had predicted they would?
  • ’Lord Voldemort,’ said Harry.
  • All he knew was that he was not the only person in the room who had an inkling of what Lord Voldemort being back might mean.
  • Voldemort!’ said Harry furiously, and both Ron and Hermione winced.
  • ’But Percy must know Voldemort’s back,’ said Harry slowly.
  • If they were going to report anything about Voldemort it would be headline news, wouldn’t it?
  • I didn’t ask — I didn’t want — Voldemort killed my parents!
  • I thought the first thing you’d do when you got here would be to start asking questions about Voldemort.’
  • A frisson had gone around the table at the mention of Voldemort’s name.
  • ’Where’s Voldemort?’ he said, ignoring the renewed shudders and winces at the name.
  • He knew Voldemort had murdered more than once in the last year alone.
  • Thanks to you, Dumbledore was able to recall the Order of the Phoenix about an hour after Voldemort returned,’ said Sirius.
  • ’Working as hard as we can to make sure Voldemort can’t carry out his plans,’ said Sirius.
  • ’But if Voldemort’s trying to recruit more Death Eaters it’s bound to get out that he’s come back, isn’t it?’ asked Harry desperately.
  • Voldemort doesn’t march up to people’s houses and bang on their front doors, Harry,’ said Sirius.
  • No, he was murdered by Voldemort.
  • Or on Voldemort’s orders, more likely; I doubt Regulus was ever important enough to be killed by Voldemort in person.
  • Or on Voldemort’s orders, more likely; I doubt Regulus was ever important enough to be killed by Voldemort in person.
  • Well, you don’t just hand in your resignation to Voldemort.

  • Voldemort killed him and you know it.
  • Voldemort is back, you know he is; Professor Dumbledore knows he is —’
  • ’For heaven’s sake, Potter!’ said Professor McGonagall, straightening her glasses angrily (she had winced horribly when he had used Voldemort’s name).
  • ’Because accepting that Voldemort’s back would mean trouble like the Ministry hasn’t had to cope with for nearly fourteen years,’ said Sirius bitterly.
  • ’But as he was the one who saw Voldemort come back’ (again, there was a collective shudder around the table at the name) ’he has more right than most to —’
  • They weren’t in that graveyard with me, the night Voldemort returned… And the same feeling of ill-usage that had overwhelmed him on the night he had arrived rose again.
  • He had last seen those cold grey eyes through slits in a Death Eaters hood, and last heard that man’s voice jeering in a dark graveyard while Lord Voldemort tortured him.
  • He had last seen those cold grey eyes through slits in a Death Eaters hood, and last heard that man’s voice jeering in a dark graveyard while Lord Voldemort tortured him.
  • ’Because the Ministry of Magic’s still after me, and Voldemort will know all about me being an Animagus by now, Wormtail will have told him, so my big disguise is useless.
  • The fact was that living at the Headquarters of the anti-Voldemort movement was not nearly as interesting or exciting as Harry would have expected before he’d experienced it.
  • ’While the Ministry insists there is nothing to fear from Voldemort it’s hard to convince people he’s back, especially as they really don’t want to believe it in the first place.
  • Harry merely glanced at the front page before throwing it aside these days; when the idiots who ran the paper finally realised that Voldemort was back it would be headline news, and that was the only kind Harry cared about.
  • No, no, but believe me, they thought Voldemort had the right idea, they were all for the purification of the wizarding race, getting rid of Muggle-borns and having pure-bloods in charge.
  • How much longer was he supposed to endure Sirius telling him to sit tight and be a good boy; or resist the temptation to write to the stupid Daily Prophet and point out that Voldemort had returned?
  • It felt very strange to be standing here in Aunt Petunia’s surgically clean kitchen, beside the top-of-the-range fridge and the wide-screen television, talking calmly of Lord Voldemort to Uncle Vernon.
  • Of course everyone was staring at him; he had emerged from the Triwizard maze two months previously clutching the dead body of a fellow student and claiming to have seen Lord Voldemort return to power.
  • Percy had committed the fairly large oversight of failing to notice that his boss was being controlled by Lord Voldemort (not that the Ministry had believed it — they all thought Mr Crouch had gone mad).
  • Tonks and Arthur would lose their jobs at the Ministry if they started shooting their mouths off,’ said Sirius, ’and it’s very important for us to have spies inside the Ministry, because you can bet Voldemort will have them.
  • In fact, Harry thought his behavior had been very good considering how frustrated and angry he felt at being stuck in Privet Drive so long, reduced to hiding in flowerbeds in the hope of hearing something that might point to what Lord Voldemort was doing.
  • That’s Dumbledore’s brother Aberforth, only time I ever met him, strange bloke… that’s Dorcas Meadowes, Voldemort killed her personally… Sirius, when he still had short hair… and… there you go, thought that would interest you!’
  • They weren’t alone, either, there were quite a few people, before Voldemort showed his true colours, who thought he had the right idea about things… they got cold feet when they saw what he was prepared to do to get power, though.
  • His mother and father were beaming up at him, sitting on either side of a small, watery-eyed man whom Harry recognised at once as Wormtail, the one who had betrayed his parents’ whereabouts to Voldemort and so helped to bring about their deaths.
  • ’Yeah, and Dumbledore said it happened whenever Voldemort was feeling a powerful emotion,’ said Harry, ignoring, as usual, Ron and Hermione’s winces.
  • It was the first time she had ever said Voldemort’s name and it was this, more than anything else, that calmed Harry.
  • ’If you’ve come to hear exactly what it looks like when Voldemort murders someone I can’t help you,’ Harry said.
  • He did not know how he knew it, but he did; Voldemort, wherever he was, whatever he was doing, was in a towering temper.
  • He said that when Voldemort was near me, or when he was feeling hatred, I could tell.
  • What was it that Voldemort wanted done that was not happening quickly enough?
  • Voldemort touches one of them, and all their scars burn, and they know they’ve got to join him.’
  • But if Voldemort really wants to kill you, you don’t stand a chance.’
  • She hiccoughed at the sound of Voldemort’s name, but stared at Harry without flinching.
  • You had flashes of what Voldemort was up to last year.
  • It was like I was the snake… what if Voldemort somehow transported me to London — ?
  • Even Voldemort couldn’t just make you fly out of your dormitory, Harry.’
  • ’Dumbledore wants to stop you having those dreams about Voldemort,’ said Hermione at once.
  • How come I saw through the snakes eyes if it’s Voldemort’s thoughts I’m sharing?
  • Harry had not found it an easy experience to talk about the night when Voldemort had returned.
  • You have Lord Voldemort’s gratitude, Rookwood…’
  • Did he expect to see Voldemort staring out of them, afraid, perhaps, that their vivid green might turn suddenly to scarlet, with catlike slits for pupils?
  • ’Yeah, Quirrell was a great teacher,’ said Harry loudly, ’there was just that minor drawback of him having Lord Voldemort sticking out of the back of his head.’
  • There they all were, talking about homework and Quidditch and who knew what other rubbish, when outside these walls ten more Death Eaters had swollen Voldemort’s ranks.
  • Nearly everyone in the wizarding world thought Sirius a dangerous murderer and a great Voldemort supporter and he had had to live with that knowledge for fourteen years… Harry blinked.
  • And then, with a terrible stab of panic, he thought, but this is insane — if Voldemort’s possessing me, I’m giving him a dear view into the Headquarters of the Order of the Phoenix right now!
  • In the past, his scar hurting had warned that Voldemort was getting stronger again, but now that Voldemort was back they would probably remind him that its regular irritation was only to be expected… nothing to worry about… old news… The injustice of it all welled up inside him so that he wanted to yell with fury.

  • ’He can hardly say, "Sorry, everyone, Dumbledore warned me this might happen, the Azkaban guards have joined Lord Voldemort" — stop whimpering, Ron — "and now Voldemort’s worst supporters have broken out, too."
  • ’He can hardly say, "Sorry, everyone, Dumbledore warned me this might happen, the Azkaban guards have joined Lord Voldemort" — stop whimpering, Ron — "and now Voldemort’s worst supporters have broken out, too."
  • ’I’m sure we can find a night that suits everyone,’ said Hermione, slightly impatiently, ’but you know, this is rather important, we’re talking about learning to defend ourselves against V-Voldemort’s Death Eaters —’
  • Before he had started studying Occlumency, his scar had prickled occasionally, usually during the night, or else following one of those strange flashes of Voldemort’s thoughts or mood that he experienced every now and then.
  • Those who came from wizarding families had grown up hearing the names of these Death Eaters spoken with almost as much fear as Voldemorts; the crimes they had committed during the days of Voldemort’s reign of terror were legendary.
  • Voldemort made me do it and he could be inside me, listening to my thoughts right now — ’Are you all right, Harry, dear?’ whispered Mrs Weasley leaning across Ginny to speak to him as the train rattled along through its dark tunnel.
  • Harry remembered how the snakelike face of Voldemort had once forced itself out of the back of Professor Quirrell’s head and ran his hand over the back of his own, wondering what it would feel like if Voldemort burst out of his skull.

  • And now Rookwood’s told Voldemort how to get the weapon?
  • Rookwood used to work there… maybe Voldemort’ll send Rookwood to do it?
  • Why do you call Voldemort the Dark Lord?
  • Lord Voldemort is waiting Very slowly, his arms trembling, the man on the ground raised his shoulders a few inches and lifted his head.
  • Harry,’ said Hermione in a rather frightened voice, ’er… how… how did Voldemort get into the Ministry of Magic without anybody realising he was there?
  • I dunno, Voldemort used an Invisibility Cloak or something!
  • Harry, how on earth could Voldemort have got hold of Sirius when he’s been in Grimmauld Place all the time?
  • ’But why,’ Hermione persisted, ’why on earth would Voldemort want to use Sirius to get the weapon, or whatever the thing is?
  • ’Maybe Sirius is just someone Voldemort doesn’t care about seeing hurt —’
  • ’I’m trying to say — Voldemort knows you, Harry!
  • But if this is a trick of Voldemort’s, Harry, we’ve got to check, we’ve got to.
  • Voldemort’s got Sirius in the Department of Mysteries, he thought desperately.
  • Voldemort’s got Sirius — ’You are on probation!’ shrieked Professor Umbridge, and Snape looked back at her, his eyebrows slightly raised.
  • His scar was throbbing in the soft evening air but it had not yet burned white-hot, as he knew it would if Voldemort had moved in for the kill.
  • How much longer would Sinus be able to resist Voldemort?
  • How come Voldemort wants it?
  • ’Your dear old mate Voldemort knows it’s gone!
  • What do you think Voldemort’ll say about that, then?’
  • ’So, you smashed my prophecy?’ said Voldemort softly, staring at Harry with those pitiless red eyes.
  • ’Master, you should know = ’Be quiet, Bella,’ said Voldemort dangerously.
  • ’What —?’ cried Voldemort, staring around.
  • Voldemort raised his wand and another jet of green light streaked at Dumbledore, who turned and was gone in a whirling of his cloak.
  • Next second, he had reappeared behind Voldemort and waved his wand towards the remnants of the fountain.
  • The headless statue thrust Harry backwards, away from the fight, as Dumbledore advanced on Voldemort and the golden centaur cantered around them both.
  • ’The Aurors are on their way = ’By which time I shall be gone, and you will be dead!’ spat Voldemort.
  • ’You do not seek to kill me, Dumbledore?’ called Voldemort, his scarlet eyes narrowed over the top of the shield.
  • ’Merely taking your life would not satisfy me, I admit = ’There is nothing worse than death, Dumbledore!’ snarled Voldemort.
  • ’You are quite wrong,’ said Dumbledore, still closing in upon Voldemort and speaking as lightly as though they were discussing the matter over drinks.
  • A long thin flame flew from the tip; it wrapped itself around Voldemort, shield and all.
  • Lord Voldemort has returned, you have been chasing the wrong man for twelve months, and it is time —you listened to sense!
  • I guessed that it might be the sign of a connection forged between you and Voldemort.
  • ’More recently’ said Dumbledore, ’I became concerned that Voldemort might realise that this connection between you exists.
  • Harry, I believe I was right to think that Voldemort would have made use of you in such a way.
  • Voldemort’s aim in possessing you, as he demonstrated tonight, would not have been my destruction.
  • I knew at once that my worst fears were correct: Voldemort had realised he could use you.
  • In an attempt to arm you against Voldemort’s assaults on your mind, I arranged Occlumency lessons with Professor Snape.’
  • Did I believe that Voldemort was gone for ever?
  • ’I knew that Voldemort’s knowledge of magic is perhaps more extensive than any wizard alive.
  • ’But I knew, too, where Voldemort was weak.
  • ’I still don’t = ’While you can still call home the place where your mother’s blood dwells, there you cannot be touched or harmed by Voldemort.
  • And here was my first test, as you lay in the hospital wing, weak from your struggle with Voldemort.
  • ’Don’t you remember asking me, as you lay in the hospital wing, why Voldemort had tried to kill you when you were a baby?’
  • You did not ask me again, however, why Voldemort had left that marl; on you.
  • In other words, I acted exactly as Voldemort expects we fools who love to act.
  • Voldemort tried to kill you when you were a child because of a prophecy made shortly before your birth.
  • This boy would be born to parents who had already defied Voldemort three times.
  • ’The official record was re-labelled after Voldemort’s attack on you as a child,’ said Dumbledore.
  • ’So he only heard —?T ’He heard only the beginning, the part foretelling the birth of a boy in July to parents who had thrice defied Voldemort.
  • So Voldemort never knew that there might be danger in attacking you, that it might be wise to wait, to learn more.
  • It is the power held within that room that you possess in such quantities and which Voldemort has not at all.
  • That power also saved you from possession by Voldemort, because he could not bear to reside in a body so full of the force he detests.
  • You rose magnificently to the challenge that faced you and sooner — much sooner — than I had anticipated, you found yourself face to face with Voldemort.
  • ’Someone made a prophecy about Voldemort and me?’ he said quietly, gazing at Lucius Malfoy, his fingers tightening over the warm glass sphere in his hand.
  • Do you think I have entered the Ministry of Magic to hear your snivelling apologies?T ’But Master — he is here — he is below = Voldemort paid no attention.
  • Voldemort’s got Sirius.
  • Sure it was over, sure Voldemort had decided to flee, Harry made to run out from behind his statue guard, but Dumbledore bellowed: ’Stay where you are, Harry!
  • ’Look, I’m sorry,’ cried Hermione, ’but neither of you is making sense, and we’ve got no proof for any of this, no proof Voldemort and Sirius are even there —’
  • Voldemort’s got him, and no one else knows, and that means we’re the only ones who can save him, and if you don’t want to do it, fine, but I’m going, understand?
  • ’Well… Avery isn’t… he’s in trouble… he gave him the wrong information… Voldemort’s really angry Harry groaned and sank, shaking, on to his bed, rubbing his scar.
  • Voldemort had been vanquished hours before, but his supporters — and many of them are almost as terrible as he — were still at large, angry, desperate and violent.
  • But the headless golden statue of the wizard in the fountain had sprung alive, leaping from its plinth to land with a crash on the floor between Harry and Voldemort.
  • He could not help feeling that his first foray into Occlumency had weakened his mind’s resistance rather than strengthening it, and he wondered, with a feeling of great trepidation, what had happened to make Lord Voldemort the happiest he had been in fourteen years.
  • Fudge wheeled around and stared at Harry, who was still standing against the wall beside the fallen statue that had guarded him during Dumbledore and Voldemort’s duel.
  • ’It seemed plain to the keeper of the Hall of Prophecy that Voldemort could only have tried to kill you because he knew you to be the one to whom Sybill was referring.
  • But he gave Narcissa information of the sort that is very valuable to Voldemort, yet must have seemed much too trivial for Sirius to think of banning him from repeating it.
  • ’I’s’pose Lord Voldemort’s just a warm-up act compared to you three — what’s the matter?’ he added, for Malfoy Crabbe and Goyle had all looked stricken at the sound of the name.
  • Meanwhile, the goblin and the house-elf scuttled towards the fireplaces set along the wall and the one-armed centaur galloped at Voldemort, who vanished and reappeared beside the pool.
  • For a moment, it seemed Dumbledore had won, but then the fiery rope became a serpent, which relinquished its hold on Voldemort at once and turned, hissing furiously, to face Dumbledore.
  • ’When, however, you did not return from your trip into the Forest with Dolores Umbridge, Professor Snape grew worried that you still believed Sirius to be a captive of Lord Voldemort’s.
  • He had seen Bellatrix Lestrange inside Dumbledore’s Pensieve, the strange device in which thoughts and memories could be stored: a tall dark woman with heavy-lidded eyes, who had stood at her trial and proclaimed her continuing allegiance to Lord Voldemort, her pride that she had tried to find him after his downfall and her conviction that she would one day be rewarded for her loyalty.
  • Voldemort?
  • For it became apparent, shortly after you rejoined the magical world, that I was correct, and that your scar was giving you warnings when Voldemort was close to you, or else feeling powerful emotion.
  • Voldemort, of course, had been obsessed with the possibility of hearing the prophecy ever since he regained his body; and as he dwelled on the door, so did you, though you did not know what it meant.
  • It … did that mean … what did that mean?T ’It meant,’ said Dumbledore, ’that the person who has the only chance of conquering Lord Voldemort for good was born at the end of July, nearly sixteen years ago.
  • ’And then you saw Rockwood, who worked in the Department of Mysteries before his arrest, telling Voldemort what we had known all along —that the prophecies held in the Ministry of Magic are heavily protected.
  • The trouble is,’ she said to Harry, ’until V-Voldemort — oh, for heaven’s sake, Ron — comes out into the open, Sirius is going to have to stay hidden, isn’t he? I mean, the stupid Ministry isn’t going to realise Sirius is innocent until they accept that Dumbledore’s been telling the truth about him all along.
  • Sybill’s prophecy could have applied to two wizard boys, both born at the end of July that year, both of whom had parents in the Order of the Phoenix, both sets of parents having narrowly escaped Voldemort three times.
  • ’But… Harry, think about this,’ said Hermione, taking a step towards him, ’it’s five o’clock in the afternoon… the Ministry of Magic must be full of workers… how would Voldemort and Sirius have got in without being seen?
  • ’You see,’ Dumbledore continued, ’I believed it could not be long before Voldemort attempted to force his way into your mind, to manipulate and misdirect your thoughts, and I was not eager to give him more incentives to do so.
  • Voldemort knew already, of course, that Sirius was in the Order, and that you knew where he was — but Kreacher’s information made him realise that the one person for whom you would go to any lengths to rescue was Sirius Black.’
  • If I had been open with you, Harry, as I should have been, you would have known a long time ago that Voldemort might try and lure you to the Department of Mysteries, and you would never have been tricked into going there tonight.
  • Tall, thin and black-hooded, his terrible snakelike face white and gaunt, his scarlet, slit-pupilled eyes staring… Lord Voldemort had appeared in the middle of the hall, his wand pointing at Harry who stood frozen, quite unable to move.
  • ’So… when I asked Kreacher if Sirius was there last night…’ ’The Malfoys — undoubtedly on Voldemort’s instructions — had told him he must find a way of keeping Sirius out of the way once you had seen the vision of Sirius being tortured.
  • ’We both know that there are other ways of destroying a man, Tom,’ Dumbledore said calmly, continuing to walk towards Voldemort as though he had not a fear in the world, as though nothing had happened to interrupt his stroll up the hall.
  • I knew the time must come soon … ’But you came out of the maze last year, having watched Cedric Diggory die, having escaped death so narrowly yourself … and I did not tell you, though I knew, now Voldemort had returned, I must do it soon.
  • Voldemort vanished; the snake reared from the floor, ready to strike There was a burst of flame in midair above Dumbledore just as Voldemort reappeared, standing on the plinth in the middle of the pool where so recently the five statues had stood.
  • Voldemort vanished; the snake reared from the floor, ready to strike There was a burst of flame in midair above Dumbledore just as Voldemort reappeared, standing on the plinth in the middle of the pool where so recently the five statues had stood.
  • ’But you said — Neville was born at the end of July, too — and his mum and dad = ’You are forgetting the next part of the prophecy, the final identifying feature of the boy who could vanquish Voldemort … Voldemort himself would mark him as his equal.
  • ’But you said — Neville was born at the end of July, too — and his mum and dad = ’You are forgetting the next part of the prophecy, the final identifying feature of the boy who could vanquish Voldemort … Voldemort himself would mark him as his equal.
  • Now, seeing the memory again, he knew that all along he had been dreaming about the corridor down which he had run with Mr Weasley on the twelfth of August as they hurried to the courtrooms in the Ministry; it was the corridor leading to the Department of Mysteries and Mr Weasley had been there the night that he had been attacked by Voldemort’s snake.
  • Only the people to whom they refer can lift them from the shelves without suffering madness: in this case, either Voldemort himself would have to enter the Ministry of Magic, and risk revealing himself at last — or else you would have to take it for him.
  • He’ll give you all the details, he’ll tell you the names of the undiscovered Death Eaters he saw there, he’ll tell you what Voldemort looks like now — oh, get a grip on yourself,’ she added contemptuously, throwing a napkin across the table, for, at the sound of Voldemort’s name, Rita had jumped so badly she had slopped half her glass of Firewhisky down herself.
  • He’ll give you all the details, he’ll tell you the names of the undiscovered Death Eaters he saw there, he’ll tell you what Voldemort looks like now — oh, get a grip on yourself,’ she added contemptuously, throwing a napkin across the table, for, at the sound of Voldemort’s name, Rita had jumped so badly she had slopped half her glass of Firewhisky down herself.
  • Harry had not thought about those words in weeks; he had been too absorbed in what was going on at Hogwarts, too busy dwelling on the ongoing battles with Umbridge, the injustice of all the Ministry interference… but now they came back to him and made him wonder… Voldemort’s anger would make sense if he was no nearer to laying hands on the weapon, whatever it was.
  • He was sure to mention Voldemort’s return; he had talked to them about it last year, after all… Harry pulled some crumpled robes out of the very bottom of his trunk to make way for folded ones and, as he did so, noticed a badly wrapped package lying in a corner of it.
  • ’Yeah, I’m — where’s Voldemort, where — who are all these — what’s — The Atrium was full of people; the floor was reflecting the emerald green flames that had burst into life in all the fireplaces along one wall; and streams of witches and wizards were emerging from them.
  • Dumbledore flicked his own wand: the force of the spell that emanated from it was such that Harry, though shielded by his golden guard, felt his hair stand on end as it passed and this time Voldemort was forced to conjure a shining silver shield out of thin air to deflect it.
  • ’I know,’ said Harry wearily ’And this ability of yours — to detect Voldemort’s presence, even when he is disguised, and to know what he is feeling when his emotions are roused — has become more and more pronounced since Voldemort returned to his own body and his full powers.’
  • ’I know,’ said Harry wearily ’And this ability of yours — to detect Voldemort’s presence, even when he is disguised, and to know what he is feeling when his emotions are roused — has become more and more pronounced since Voldemort returned to his own body and his full powers.’
  • He should have waited to see whether Neville or I looked more dangerous when we were older and tried to kill whoever it was then = ’That might, indeed, have been the more practical course,’ said Dumbledore, ’except that Voldemort’s information about the prophecy was incomplete.
  • If they were too late… He’s still alive, he’s still fighting, I can feel it… If Voldemort decided Sirius was not going to crack… I’d know… Harrys stomach gave a jolt; the Thestrals head was suddenly pointing towards the ground and he actually slid forwards a few inches along its neck.
  • Harry received two more ’D’s in Potions; he was still on tenterhooks that Hagrid might get the sack; and he couldn’t stop himself dwelling on the dream in which he had been Voldemort — though he didn’t bring it up with Ron and Hermione again; he didn’t want another telling-off from Hermione.
  • But even as he shouted, another jet of green light flew at Dumbledore from Voldemort’s wand and the snake struck Fawkes swooped down in front of Dumbledore, opened his beak wide and swallowed the jet of green light whole: he burst into flame and fell to the floor, small, wrinkled and flightless.
  • At the same moment, Dumbledore brandished his wand in one long, fluid movement — the snake, which had been an instant from sinking its fangs into him, flew high into the air and vanished in a wisp of dark smoke; and the water in the pool rose up and covered Voldemort like a cocoon of molten glass.
  • He would have been so interested to know all this a few months ago, but now it was meaningless compared to the gaping chasm inside him that was the loss of Sirius; none of it mattered … ’Sirius told me you felt Voldemort awake inside you the very night that you had the vision of Arthur Weasley’s attack.
  • All Harry knew for sure was that his godfather had neither done as Voldemort wanted, nor died, for he was convinced that either outcome would have caused him to feel Voldemort’s jubilation or fury course through his own body, making his scar sear as painfully as it had on the night Mr Weasley was attacked.
  • All Harry knew for sure was that his godfather had neither done as Voldemort wanted, nor died, for he was convinced that either outcome would have caused him to feel Voldemort’s jubilation or fury course through his own body, making his scar sear as painfully as it had on the night Mr Weasley was attacked.
  • When I told him Voldemort had Sirius he just sneered at me as usual — ’Harry, you know Professor Snape had no choice but to pretend not to take you seriously in front of Dolores Umbridge,’ said Dumbledore steadily, ’but as I have explained, he informed the Order as soon as possible about what you had said.
  • For a few seconds Voldemort was visible only as a dark, rippling, faceless figure, shimmering and indistinct upon the plinth, clearly struggling to throw off the suffocating mass Then he was gone and the water fell with a crash back into its pool, slopping wildly over the sides, drenching the polished floor.
  • Think again… we have hours ahead of us and nobody to hear you scream…’ But somebody screamed as Voldemort lowered his wand again; somebody yelled and fell sideways off a hot desk on to the cold stone floor; Harry awoke as he hit the ground, still yelling, his scar on fire, as the Great Hall erupted all around him.
  • It was now full of articles about how to repel Dementors, attempts by the Ministry to track down Death Eaters and hysterical letters claiming that the writer had seen Lord Voldemort walking past their house that very morning… ’It hasn’t really started yet,’ sighed Hermione gloomily, folding up the newspaper again.
  • In truth, his scar was aching, but not so badly that he thought Voldemort had yet dealt Sirius a fatal blow; it had hurt much worse than this when Voldemort had been punishing Avery… ’Here,’ he said; he threw the Invisibility Cloak over both of them and they stood listening carefully over the Latin mumblings of the bust in front of them.
  • In truth, his scar was aching, but not so badly that he thought Voldemort had yet dealt Sirius a fatal blow; it had hurt much worse than this when Voldemort had been punishing Avery… ’Here,’ he said; he threw the Invisibility Cloak over both of them and they stood listening carefully over the Latin mumblings of the bust in front of them.
  • ’No, Bella, he is not lying… I see the truth looking at me from within his worthless mind… months of preparation, months of effort… and my Death Eaters have let Harry Potter thwart me again …I ’Master, I am sorry I knew not, I was fighting the Animagus Black!’ sobbed Bellatrix, flinging herself down at Voldemort’s feet as he paced slowly nearer.
  • He felt dirty, contaminated, as though he were carrying some deadly germ, unworthy to sit on the Underground train back from the hospital with innocent, clean people whose minds and bodies were free of the taint of Voldemort… he had not merely seen the snake, he had been the snake, he knew it now… A truly terrible thought then occurred to him, a memory bobbing to the surface of his mind, one that made his insides writhe and squirm like serpents.
