Chapter 3-15 The Quidditch Final
- Hermione got the letter, stating Buckbeak will be executed, from Hagrid. Ron
and Hermione make up.
- Harry, Ron and Hermione have Charms class
where they practice Cheering Charms.
Hermione somehow vanished and did not attend the class. After classes,
Harry and Ron go back to Gryffindor tower. They pass the security Trolls,
give the Fat Lady the password "Flibbertigibbet" and enter through
the portrait hole. Hermione is sitting at a table, asleep. She had forgotten
to go to Charms class.
- The three of them have Divination together
and they go to Professor Trelawney's room. They have moved
up to the crystal ball lessons. They all look into their Orbs. After a while they get bored and Ron makes
a funny comment. Professor Trewlawney looks into Harry's orb and she
sees the Grim again. Hermione decides she has
enough of it and leaves classes.
- Easter holiday has started, but the third-years have a lot of homework.
Hermione looks very tired. Ron has taken over the responsibility for
Buckbeak's appeal, now consulting books like The
Handbook of Hippogriff Psychology and Fowl or Foul?
A Study of Hippogriff Brutality.
- The Quidditch final between Gryffindor and Slytherin is near. Gryffindor hasn't won
the Cup since Charlie Weasley had been
Seeker. The night before the game Harry sleeps
badly, waking up after having strange dreams. Looking out of the window,
he sees Crookshanks and a huge Black Dog.
- The day of the Quidditch match has arrived. Harry and the team get
ready to enter the field. Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff are supporting Gryffindor;
not wanting Slytherin to win. The game starts, with Lee
Jordan doing the commentary. There is a lot of action from Gryffindor's Chaser, Alicia Spinnet, Slytherin's Chasers
Warrington, Montague and Flint. Flint smashes into Angelina Johnson and Fred takes revenge by beating him on
the head with his club. Alicia scores a penalty they got for Flint's
behavior and Oliver Wood stops the
penalty that Slytherin gets for Fred's foul. More actions follow, also
by Katie Bell. Harry sees the Snitch
but imediately starts to distract Draco
Malfoy's attention because Gryffindor needs to be fifty points
ahead when catching the snitch in order to win the Cup. While flying
in a different direction, Malfoy tailing him, he is attacked by the
Bludgers which the Slytherin Beaters
Derrick and Bole are aiming at him. The game turns very
dirty but Gryffindor manages to get sixty points ahead. Harry sees the
Snitch and goes after it, but Malfoy holds on to Harry's broom so Harry
misses it by a short distance. He finally manages to catch the Snitch
right in front of Malfoy's nose and the stadium explodes with cheers.
