DH14

HRH apparated to the old Quidditch World Cup campgrounds, Ron having been splinched in the process. Hermione treats Ron’s injuries and they set up camp, whereupon Harry has a vision of Voldemort interrogating Gregorovitch. He realizes that Voldemort is searching for something Gregorovitch once had, but which was stolen by a young man long ago.

Calendar and Dates

Continues directly from the previous chapter and on into the night of the same day until well past ten o'clock, so it either ends on that same day or in the small hours of the next morning.

Interesting facts and notes

Why did the young thief look familiar?
Because Harry saw a photograph of him in The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore the previous day (DH13).

it was the merry-faced thief who was in danger now
And Harry is quite right, of course, although not until Harry's subsequent vision of DH23 will we see the result.

Exceptional character moments

The image of Gellert Grindelwald as a young trickster in the Weasley style.

Memorable lines

"I didn't get the feeling Reg Cattermole was all that quick-witted, though, the way everyone was talking to me when I was him."

"'What did we just go through all that for? The locket! Where's the locket?' 'You got it?' shouted Ron, raising himself a little higher on his pillows. 'No one tells me anything! Blimey, you could have mentioned it!' 'Well, we were running for our lives from Death Eaters, weren't we?' said Hermione."

"Harry could still see the blond-haired youth's face, it was merry, wild; there was a Fred and George-ish air of triumphant trickery about him."
