“'…I have great pleasure in announcing that this year at Hogwarts - '
But at that moment, there was a deafening rumble of thunder and the doors of the Great Hall banged open.
A man stood in the doorway, leaning upon a long staff, shrouded in a black traveling cloak. Every head in the Great hall swiveled toward the stranger, suddenly brightly illuminated by a fork of lighting that flashed across the ceiling. He lowered his hood, shook out a long mane of grizzled, dark grey hair, then began to walk up to the teachers’ table…”

“'About time,' said Ron, seizing his knife and fork and looking expectantly at his golden plate.
Professor Dumbledore had gotten to his feet. He was smiling around at the students, his arms opened wide in welcome.
‘I have only two words to say to you,’ he told them, his deep voice echoing around the Hall. ‘Tuck in.’
‘Hear, hear!’ said Harry and Ron loudly as the empty dishes filled magically before their eyes.”

“'PEEVES!' yelled an angry voice. 'Peeves, come down here at ONCE!'
Professor McGonagall, deputy headmistress and Head of Gryffindor House, had come dashing out of the Great Hall; she skidded on the wet floor and grabbed Hermione around the neck to stop herself from falling.
‘Ouch - sorry, Miss Granger - ‘
‘That’s all right, Professor!’ Hermione gasped, massaging her throat.
‘Peeves, get down here NOW!’ barked Professor McGonagall, straightening her pointed hat and glaring upward through her square-rimmed spectacles.”

“A hundred horseless carriages stood waiting for them outside the station. Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Neville climbed gratefully into one of them, the door shut with a snap, and a few moments later, with a great lurch, the long procession of carriages was rumbling and splashing its way up the track toward Hogwarts Castle.”

“‘But I think Durmstrang must be somewhere in the far north,’ said Hermione thoughtfully. ‘Somewhere very cold, because they’ve got fur capes as part of their uniforms.’
‘Ah, think of the possibilities,’ said Ron dreamily. ‘It would’ve been so easy to push Malfoy off a glacier and make it look like an accident….Shame his mother likes him…’”

“‘What about the intruder?’
‘Arthur, you know Mad-Eye,’ said Mr. Diggory’s head, rolling its eyes again. ‘Someone creeping into his yard in the dead of night? More likely there’s a very shell-shocked cat wandering around somewhere, covered in potato peelings…’”

“‘What is *that* supposed to be?’
He was holding up something that looked to Harry like a long, maroon velvet dress. It had a moldy-looking lace frill at the collar and matching lace cuffs.
There was a knock on the door, and Mrs. Weasley entered, carrying an armful of freshly laundered Hogwarts robes.
‘There you are,’ she said, sorting them into two piles. ‘Now, mind you pack them properly so they don’t crase.’
‘Mum, you’ve given me Ginny’s new dress,’ said Ron, handing it out to her.
‘Of course I haven’t,’ said Mrs. Weasley. ‘That’s for you. Dress robes.’”

“‘Why are they all sending Howlers?’ asked Ginny, who was mending her copy of One Thousand Magical Herbs and Fungi with Spellotape on the rug in front of the living room fire.
‘Complaining about security at the World Cup,’ said Percy. ‘They want compensation for their ruined property. Mundungus Fletcher’s put in a claim for a twelve-bedroomed tent with en-suite Jacuzzi, but I’ve got his number. I know for a fact he was sleeping under a cloak propped on sticks.’”
