  1. Bellatrix is Voldemort’s most fervent follower and is a bit unhinged after spending years in the presence of Dementors at Azkaban. She is a threat to Snape because she simply doesn’t believe his well-rehearsed explanations and at times has Voldemort’s ear. Bellatrix is also an experienced Occlumens and Snape’s taunts anger her, giving him a small advantage when they interact. As Maxim said, Narcissa never became a Death Eater and is a loving and protective mother; now confronted with losing her son, she is desperate and visibly anguished. I don’t know if Snape already knew of Voldemort’s plan but in her current state, Snape could easily navigate Narcissa’s mind. Snape was also fond of Draco and as we learn later, the Unbreakable Vow proved to be a win-win for all concerned.
  2. After Voldemort’s rebirth, Wormtail was once again considered to be a low-ranking soldier for his cowardice and general lack of usefulness. So Voldemort probably assigned Wormtail to Snape to spy on him as it was something Wormtail had proven he was good at. And as Snape would have never requested an assistant, his treatment of Wormtail suggests he wants him to request a transfer.
  3. Oooooh, I agree with Arianna and Tarma! At that time, John Major, a political conservative, was Prime Minister and Bill Clinton, a liberal, was President, The long-standing "special relationship" between Britain and the US was unraveling because of the antipathy between the two men. In late August, Bill Clinton and Al Gore were re-nominated at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. It is not unreasonable for the PM to be expecting a call from the "wretched" President of a far distant country to discuss his re-nomination.
  4. I have to admit, I find it jarring when Harry is not providing the narration. But it’s a cool way of informing the reader of events that Harry is simply not privy to. In a single chapter we learned that the Muggle Prime Minister is aware of the wizarding world and is periodically briefed by the Minister of Magic, that Voldemort is gaining power and his followers (Death Eaters, giants, and Dementors) are wreaking havoc in both the wizarding and Muggle worlds, that Fudge has been replaced by Scrimgeour as MoM, and that the Ministry is providing Auror security for the Muggle PM. Imagine how long it would take Harry to sort that all out!
  5. I kind of like the idea of a squashy chintz armchair!
  6. From: Department of International Magical Cooperation To: Department of Magical Games and Sports Sorry for the short notice, but we were just informed that Bulgarian Minister for Magic Oblansk changed his arrival date in order to attend the Quidditch match on Saturday. We need three VIP tickets ASAP. Cheers. (This is a colorized Eagle Eye style memo from the internet.)
  7. More like an elevator music selector, Sky, but a jukebox works! 😄
  8. After dialing 6-8-7-4-2 (M-U-S-I-C) a cool female voice says “You can interrupt this message at any time. Press 1 for Blodwyn Bludd Press 2 for Celestina Warbeck Press 3 for Coldplay Press 4 for Gorillaz Press 5 for Lorcan d'Eath Press 6 for Madame Bletchley Press 7 for Spellbound Press 8 for The Bent-Wing Snitches Press 9 for The Hobgoblins Press 0 for Weird Sisters”
  9. This is Krystal Ball, Senior Consultant to the Minister for Magic. She is currently assigned to the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures and liaises directly with the Muggle Prime Minister through the Office of Misinformation whenever the need arises. She keeps the Order informed of all the worst magical-Muggle collisions and how they were explained away. She also informs the Order of how complaints about magical creatures were handled and whether new magical creatures were bred.
  10. I’ve always wanted to have lush eyelashes (without the trouble of extensions or mascara) so my spell is Ciliaugeo! The incantation is derived from the Latin cili, meaning eyelashes and augeo, meaning increase.
  11. "Don't count your owls before they are delivered" - don't plan anything that depends on a good thing you expect to happen in the future. (play on the Muggle phrase "don't count your chickens before they hatch")
  12. Oh Sky - I've been there! My one-month-old car hydroplaned into the base of an overpass and I watched the engine slowly crumple into bad origami. You captured that moment exactly!
