Chapter 34: The Department of Mysteries

Chapter 34: The Department of Mysteries




Harry, Neville, and Luna quickly mount their Thestrals, but Hermione, Ron, and Ginny have difficulty finding them; Luna dismounts and helps them. From his dreams, Harry recognizes the corridor and knows which door to enter. Within is a large circular chamber with twelve doors. Harry is unsure which one to go through, the more so as, as soon as a door closes behind them, the room's walls rotate. When the doors come to a standstill again, they open the first one; but the room does not match Harry's dream. Instead, it contains a large tank with floating brains. Retreating, Hermione marks the door with her wand so they know they have already looked there. The next room is a large stone amphitheater. On a raised dais at the center is an ancient stone archway, a tattered veil fluttering in the entrance. Harry investigates, and standing next to the veil, he has the strange sensation that someone is on the other side. Hermione, in particular, seems frightened, and calls Harry back to the circular room.

The next doorway refuses to open; Harry uses Sirius' knife that will "open any door", but the door remains shut and the knife's blade melts away. At the next door, Harry recognizes the sparkling, shimmering light from his dreams. Inside is a bell jar containing a beautiful hummingbird that hatches from an egg, flutters to the top, falls back down into the egg, then hatches again. Passing through this room, they reach the huge chamber containing the shelves loaded with glass orbs that Harry recognizes from his dream. Finding no trace of Sirius, Harry considers returning to Hogwarts when Ron spots an orb labeled "S.P.T. to A.P.W.B.D. Dark Lord and (?)Harry Potter".

As Harry reaches for it, Hermione warns him it might be dangerous, but nothing happens when he grasps it. Although the chamber is cold, the orb feels warm in Harry's hand.

A voice from behind breaks the silence: "Very good, Potter. Now turn around, nice and slowly, and give that to me."


Question:

Why do you think the Department of Mysteries was so easily accessible to Harry and the others?

I think it was part of the trap that Harry has to fall on to. They wanted to lure Harry right away so they made the Dept. of Mysteries easily accessible. It was after all, the venue where Harry saw his godfather being abducted.

Yep. Diba nga, Voldemort implanted on Harry's mind na he's torturing Sirius Black? They wanted Harry to come since Rookwood, a former Ministry worker (dept. of mysteries) told Voldy that the only one who can get the prophecy is the person whom the prophecy speaks of. And that is Harry.

-If you want someone to fall into your trap, you will clear his path way so he can easily fall into your trap. That's what Voldy did.
