Leaky’s Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 35 Days


Oct 16, 2010

Posted by EdwardTLC

There are now only 35 days left until “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I” hits theaters! We are posting a quote from the first half of the book every day in celebration and to give us a chance to discuss and ponder the final book as it goes to film. Here is today’s quote!

Umbridge laughed a soft girlish laugh that made Harry want to attack her. She leaned forward over the barrier, the better to observe her victim, and something gold swung forward too, and dangled over the void: the locket.

Here's a civil servant who doesn't care whose in charge, never becomes an official Deatheater, but feels comfy wearing a Horcrux! The evil she does is totally outside the Voldemort mission, she just wants order, and is bigoted and self promoting with no moral compass what so ever, but if you asked her, she would say anyone is defies her order is bad.

I couldn't believe she was back in DH! I was like I wish she's been sent to St Mungos forever!
