Order of the Phoenix, Chapter Thirty-Four

Rowling kind of has a thing for writing dramatic finishes to her books in underground/underworldly-type places, doesn’t she? Book 1 ended in a labyrinth “miles below” Hogwarts; book 2 in the Chamber of Secrets; book 3 the Shrieking Shack; book 4 a graveyard, and now here we are in the Department of Mysteries. They do make for some incredibly dramatic scenes, I have to say. SO MUCH SUSPENSE I CAN’T HANDLE IT!

We do have a new header image today, a wonderful drawing of the kids looking over the prophecy at the Death Eaters in the Department of Mysteries, courtesy of artist MartinTenbones. Hooray!
