As usual, Harry is spending his holiday in the Privet drive. The awkward thing about this holiday was his friends didn’t send him letters like they normally would. He was pissed off thinking that Ron and Hermione were together and they left him to rot in Little Whinging. With the thought, he was walking around when he saw Dudley and his friends bullying someone near the bush. Harry just sat in the swing and waited for them to go away. After Dudley’s friends left, Harry started to tease him with names his mother called him with. Dudley started to get irritated and mentioned about Harry pleading for Cedric’s life. This made Harry so mad that he drew his wands out and pointed it at Dudley’s heart. Suddenly, the night started to get weird and a cold feeling started to pass around.
A Dementor swiped in from the other side. Dudley was scared enough to push Harry away and run. Harry yelled Dudley to stop because he was running towards the Dementor. But, the dementor attacked Dudley and he was shivering flat on the floor. As the wand fell while being pushed, Harry used the spell Lumos to find it and screamed Expectro Patronum to push away the dementors. After the dementors where pushed away Harry tried to pull Dudley up but was unsuccessful. Mrs. Figg, one of Harry neighbor appeared and helped him to get back to the house where Uncle and Aunt were terrified with the scene that lay before them.
Moreover, Harry finds out that Dumbledore had him followed since the rise of Lord Voldemort. Like always Uncle Vernom and Harry are having their arguments when a letter from Ministry of Magic arrives saying that Harry will have to attend a hearing where he has to state why had he used magic outside of school. Hearing this Uncle Vernom shouts at Harry asking him to leave his house. Then, a howler flies into the room addressed to Aunt Petunia. “Remember our last, Petunia” it says, aunt Petunia looked terrified and tells Harry to go and sleep.
Harry is left alone at home when he heard some muffling sound in the kitchen. Few wizard and witches appear including Professor Moody, Professor Lupin, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Nymphadora Tonks and other. Lupin says that they were there to take him to the headquarters of the Order of Pheonix at number 12, Grimmauld Place, London. Harry is furious at Ron and Hermione for not telling him about what was going on. They explain about the conditions that Dumbledore applied and that calmed Harry a bit but not enough. The house belonged to Sirius and an elf Kreacher was taking care of the house in his absence.
Next day Harry attends his hearing and with the help of Dumbledore, he is spared of his punishment. The school starts and they have a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, Dolores Umbridge who happens to be the member of Ministry of Magic and also the person who voted against Harry in the trail. As they are in the fifth year, they have to appear OWL’s exam (Ordinary Wizardry Level) and it becomes more stressful as Professor Umbridge refuses to teach them practical use of spell as she believes there is no harm in the world. This makes the trio go against her and the step up a secret group named Dumbledore Army where Harry started to teach other 20 members on how and where to use spells. These people despite the lies that Daily Prophet kept telling believed in Harry and the rise of Lord Voldemort. Life started to suck at Hogwarts for Harry as he was under the close watch of Umbridge who believed that he is a big time liar. She started inspecting every owl that left the Hogwarts, banned Harry from Quidditch, and punished him every time he tried to explain about the rise of Voldemort. Until this moment, Harry first had a dream about a snake attacking Mr. Wealsey and he is more frightened that he is the snake in the dream. Dumbledore suggests Harry to take Occlumency classes from Snape so that he could close his mind to the nightmares. However, the classes made him mind even worst and the difference between Snape and him grew worst.
Umbridge with the help of Draco Malfoy, finds out about the D.A Army and when she confronts that to Dumbledore, he accepts and vanishes right in front of their eye. Harry dreams about the snake killing Sirius. Without Dumbledore to help and not trusting Snape with it he risks and goes to Umbridges’ office and tries to contact Sirius. But he finds Kreacher instead and he lies about his not being there.
So Harry rushes to the Ministry of Magic accompanied by his D.A friends.: Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Neville, and Luna. They get to the basement of the Department of Mysteries and find a room full of glass balls that Harry had seen in his dreams. He searches everywhere, but there is no sign of Sirius. Whatsoever that Dumbledore was scared of, it had actually happened. Voldemort had played with Harrys’ mind as the Occlumency class weaken his mind. Voldemort has lured Harry to the Department of Secrets so that Harry could pull out the prophecy as it was named under him. He finds it but then the Death Eaters attack them. Everyone is injured in the fight and Harry feels guilty about it. But when the Order of phoenix comes for the rescue, the fight goes out of hand and. Sirius slips through an apparently empty archway in the Department of Mysteries. He died. 🙁
Dumbledore and Voldemort have a row where Voldemort tries to posses Harry so that he would kill Dumbledore but as he is full of emotion Voldemort loses. Fudge, the Minister finally believes that Lord Voldemort has risen. Back in School, Dumbledore apologies for hiding the truth from Harry all this time and thinking that he is too small to understand. He then discloses about the prophecy that was made and how Voldemort took it the wrong way. The prophecy stated that a boy born at the end of July to parents who have rebelled Voldemort three times will arrive with power that Voldemort doesn’t have. Neville Longbottom was also born on the same day and his parents rebelled Voldemort too. But Voldemort only knew half of it so he without knowing the full prophecy attacked Harry and made him the chosen one. Harry must kill Voldemort or else he’ll kill him.
Harry then understood why Voldemort has been chasing him as he has been proven to be the danger to his rise to power. This cools down Harrys’ anger and he is all ready to raise a war.
Moral: Listening half and understanding quarter is the biggest mistakes that humans make. Most of the time, shutting oneself from things that harms us or might harm us is the best choice to be taken. The love for power makes people blind but the power to love never goes out of style. Knowledge is power however we should always know where and how to use it.
