Defense Against the Dark Arts
“And what good’s theory going to be in the real world?” said Harry loudly, his fist in the air again.
Professor Umbridge looked up.
“This is school, Mr. Potter, not the real world,” she said softly.
“So we’re not supposed to be prepared for what’s waiting out there?”
“There is nothing waiting out there, Mr. Potter.”
“Oh yeah?” said Harry. His temper, which seemed to have been bubbling just beneath the surface all day, was reaching boiling point.
“Who do you imagine wants to attack children like yourselves?” inquired Professor Umbridge in a horribly honeyed voice.
“Hmm, let’s think . . .” said Harry in a mock thoughtful voice, “maybe Lord Voldemort?”
Ron gasped; Lavender Brown uttered a little scream; Neville slipped sideways off his stool. Professor Umbridge, however, did not flinch. She was staring at Harry with a grimly satisfied expression on her face.
“Ten points from Gryffindor, Mr. Potter.”
The classroom was silent and still. Everyone was staring at either Umbridge or Harry.
“Now, let me make a few things quite plain.”
Professor Umbridge stood up and leaned toward them, her stubbyfingered hands splayed on her desk.
“You have been told that a certain Dark wizard has returned from the dead —”
“He wasn’t dead,” said Harry angrily, “but yeah, he’s returned!”
“Mr.-Potter-you-have-already-lost-your-House-ten-points-do-notmake-matters-worse-for-yourself,” said Professor Umbridge in one breath without looking at him. “As I was saying, you have been informed that a certain Dark wizard is at large once again. This is a lie.”
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Chapter 12
This time the quoted text from the book is a bit longer, but this part is very important, because it makes Umbridge’s — and so the Ministry’s — attitudes quite clear.
The official minifig representation of Umbridge got very expensive over the years, so I tried to kitbash an own version — what also wasn’t easy because of the few fitting minifig parts in shades of pink. But I hope she looks quite okay now ;)
If you haven’t seen the first four parts so far, please have a look at the albums of my predecessors.
