Chapter 4-16 The Goblet of Fire
- There is a welcome dinner for the Durmstrang and Beauxbatons school delegations. During
dinner a pretty Beauxbatons girl interrupts to ask for the bouillabaisse.
- Ludo Bagman and Mr. Crouch also enter a while later.
- At the end of dinner, Dumbledore stands up and announces
the start of the Triwizard Tournament. Bagman and
Crouch helped organize it and they will join himself, Karkaroff and Madame Maxime in the judging.
- A casket is brought in and Dumbledore takes out the Goblet of Fire which will select the
champions. Students have twenty-four hours to put their name and school
on a piece of paper and put it into the Goblet. To ensure that underage
students will not enter their name, Dumbledore will draw an Age
Line around the Goblet, excluding students under the age of seventeen.
All chosen champions will be obliged to see the Tournament through to
- Fred and George, who are under age, think about
using an Aging Potion to trick the Age
- The Durmstrang students will go back to the ship. Karkaroff offers
Krum some wine but he declines.
Another student, Poliakoff would like some but is snapped
at by Karkaroff. While reaching the door, Krum notices Harry's Scar
and stops. The other Durmstrang students and Karkaroff notice it too.
- At that moment Moody comes in.
- Fred, George and Lee Jordan tell
they have taken an Aging Potion. Fred tries to put his name into the
Goblet first, stepping over the Age Line. George instantly goes after
him. The both are hurled out of the circle and suddenly sprout identical
long beards. Dumbledore, coming in, tells them he warned them. He sends
them to madam Pomfrey who is already tending Miss Fawcett
of Ravenclaw and Mr Summers of Hufflepuff.
- Dean and Seamus are discussing who had already
entered their name. Rumour is that Warrington from Slytherin entered his name
and Cedric Diggory from Hufflepuff.
Angelina Johnson walks in and
tells them that she has just put in her name.
- Next, all the Beaubatons students put in their names.
- Harry, Ron and Hermione visit Hagrid. He is all dressed up. He tells
them the Skrewts are nearly three
feet long and that they have started killing each other.
- Hermione tries to make Hagrid
join S.P.E.W. but Hagrid does not agree, saying
that the House-elves' nature is to look
after humans. Hagrid seems to have a crush on Madam Maxime.
- The Halloween feast starts. The goblet shoots out the paper with the
names of the champions. It selects Krum for Durmstrang, the pretty girl
Fleur Delacour for Beauxbatons
and Cedric Diggory for Hogwarts. As Dumbledore is getting ready to congratulate
those who were chosen, the goblet shoots out another name...Harry Potter.
