    He also might have gotten hurt if he hadn't known about the Order. Something could have happened with him that interfered with their plans, or he could have done something that got himself into trouble or got himself injured. This shows in Harry's creation of Dumbledore's Army. Due to Harry's choice of a name, Dumbledore has to flee Hogwarts to avoid being taken away because they're breaking the rules and the Ministry tried to crack down on them for doing that. Another example of people intentionally being kept in the dark with this motif is through the secret of magic. Witches and wizards are not allowed to do magic around muggles or really indicate that magic exists at all. This keeps the muggles in the dark, and that could really lead to…

    As I analyzed how Voldemort and his servants exemplified love and loyalty, I saw how they had strong love and loyalty but it was self-centered. Selfishness and fear were the main motivations of Voldemort for bringing about his plan of getting rid of Muggle-born wizards and taking control of the wizard government or destroying it if refused to comply with his vision. He was selfish because he was afraid of being defeated and losing his power. He did not care about who lived and who died in the…

    “A Very Potter Musical” was written and performed in 2009 by StarKid Productions in the University of Michigan campus. At first glance the musical seems like it would be rather interesting purely because it is every Harry Potter dorks dream come true. However, upon further look into the musical people begin to realize that the music isn’t really that great. For a person who does not have a musical background the play is rather enjoyable but when one turns a musical ear to it they want to run the…

    Persephone straightened her skirt. She was more nervous today than she'd ever been before. Interviewing the Malfoys was a huge task, and to make it easier, she'd decided to interview the youngest member of the family, Draco Malfoy. When Mr. Malfoy came into the room, she stood and shook his hand, and invited him to be seated. So far, he seemed withdrawn and quiet, not the evil mastermind so many seemed to view him as. She decided to just dive in. "Mr. Malfoy, would you mind just telling me a…

    Harry found himself enjoying the company that Ron brought; although they had only met a few hours before, he felt completely at ease. He wondered whether the red head would prove to be his first actual friend. As Ron pulled out his wand, determined to turn Scabbers yellow, the door their compartment was pulled open and a girl their age peered in. She had wild, frizzy hair and brown eyes, and her expression was slightly disdainful. "Have you happened to see a toad?" She asked," A boy called…

    ticking for the start of the war. Neither the Germans nor the Russians thought the other would go directly to war after they finished mobilizing. However, Germany would give Russia one more chance to back down before the war began. I believe that mobilization in World War One was the main cause of the war. The entry of the United States into World War One was not like mobilization for the other countries at the time. The United States, unlike the countries of Europe, did not have pressure to…
