Chapter 13

Gryffindor versus Ravenclaw

  • Ron and Hermione's friendship has effectively come to an end over the seeming murder of Scabbers.
  • Ron is furious and upset. Harry makes like Jimmy Carter and tries to play mediator, but unlike Jimmy Carter, Harry sucks at it.
  • Hermione is upset that Harry acts like he's taking Ron's side and refuses to talk to either of them.
  • Fred and George proceed to make fun of Ron for being so upset over his stupid rat.
  • Harry takes his Firebolt to a team practice and it really energizes everyone.
  • As they head in from an awesome practice, Harry spots a huge black dog again and gets super nervous.
  • It's the day of the match against Ravenclaw and everyone is really excited.
  • Harry notices that the Ravenclaw Seeker, Cho Chang, is pretty cute.
  • Since the weather is nice, we can hear the commentary of Lee Jordan during the match. Lee seems better suited for stand-up comedy than ESPN, though, and McGonagall keeps yelling at him for his inappropriate comments.
  • After doing a lengthy product placement for the Firebolt, Lee gets down to actually covering the match.
  • The match is going well, but then Harry spies some pesky Dementors.
  • But he whips out his wand, casts a Patronus, and then catches the snitch. Go, Harry!
  • After the match, Harry learns that the Dementors weren't actually Dementors – it was Malfoy, Crabbe, and Goyle.
  • McGonagall is furious and starts shouting at them.
  • Harry finds this hilarious and he heads back to the tower for a victory party.
  • Harry tries to talk to Hermione, who's doing homework in a corner during the party, but Ron makes a loud comment about Scabbers and Hermione runs off crying.
  • Harry tells Ron to lay off, but Ron stubbornly refuses to apologize to her.
  • That night, Ron wakes everyone up by screaming.
  • Turns out Sirius Black was hovering over Ron with a knife.
  • No one knows how to respond to that (other than "Aaaahhhh!") but McGonagall barges in and starts questioning Ron.
  • She doesn't believe him either, but then Sir Cadogan reveals that he let Black in since he had the password written down.
  • McGonagall is furious and Neville confesses that he was the one who wrote the password down initially.
