From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Draco's father is a Death Eater. As a result of the big battle in the Ministry of Magic in Book 5 and as a result of failing to steal the prophecy of Harry from the Ministry of Magic, he's spending his time in Azkaban Prison. Voldemort's not too happy about the fact that Lucius was unable to steal the prophecy.
