Chamber of secrets and Dobby

Chamber of Secrets

After Sorcerer’s Stone, he spends summer with Dursleys, feeling lonely as none of his friends have written him any letter or not reached him and we know why. He finds Dobby the house-elf in his room on his bed. Harry learns that he is a house-elf and was the reason he did not get any letter as Dobby has taken all the letters that were sent by Harry’s friends to stop Harry from going back to Hogwarts. As Dobby thought that Harry would not go back to his home Hogwarts just because he would think that his friends didn’t write him a letter. Like he would not go to Hogwarts, after all, Hogwarts is his home.

Dobby doesn’t stop there; he wants to save Harry Potter from the incidents that are going to happen at Hogwarts. Dobby drops cake on Masons or in the case of a book, in the kitchen splattering cream all over. So, his uncle locked him, but Ron, Fred, and George save him through a flying car. In fact, Arthur Weasley made the flying car magically, it also invisible itself by pressing a button. The car was Ford Anglia. I loved it when Molly yelled at the Weasley brothers but was nice to Harry.

Harry and the Weasley family go to buy school supplies and met Hermione Granger and Rubeus Hagrid. New defence against the dark arts teacher Gilderoy Lockhart is also there and Harry gets to the front page of the news with him. They together meet Draco Malfoy and his father Lucius Malfoy, who mixes Voldemort’s diary with Ginny’s.

It’s time to go to the King’s Cross station, platform 93/4 to open the chamber of secrets. So, all of the others go first leaving Ron and Harry behind. Here’s the thing; what if Harry and Ron tried to go first or in the middle of the line, what would happen? Dobby won’t be able to block it, right? A completely different scene would take place. Anyway, back to the point, Harry and Ron can’t go to the platform missing the train. So, they take the flying car.

Chamber of secrets and Whomping willow

They landed crashing into the Whomping willow standing there for years. It breaks Ron’s wand and the car throws them out along with their trunks. Wow! The car has artificial intelligence, ha-ha. They get detention by Professor McGonagall. Harry gets detention with Gilderoy Lockhart. Damn, going into the forbidden forest is more adventurous than writing fan mails. I would like to know much about the forbidden forest, do you like to know more? Yes? well, I don’t know myself. I guess I’m gonna make some polls about it too.

Back to the point, after detention Harry hears some strange sounds and he tries to listen to them carefully. He can understand Parseltongue you know. Here’s one more fact. JK Rowling revealed that Dumbledore learned Parseltongue. From whom? I don’t know, but it’s cool. Along the way, Harry finds Argus Filch’s cat Mrs. Norris petrified and a warning message written on the wall.

History of the chamber of secrets

McGonagall (in the movie) or Cuthbert Binns (in the book) tells them that the founder of Slytherin Salazar Slytherin constructed a chamber known as the chamber of secrets, and before departure, he sealed it and only a true heir can open it again. It is said to be the home of a monster and only the heir of the Slytherin can control it. It will get the school free from muggle-born.

As Draco Malfoy is a Slytherin, Harry and Ron suspect that he is the heir of the Slytherin. So, Hermione Granger suggests questioning Draco in disguised. She suggests making Polyjuice Potion turn into a different person and asking Draco directly about it. The potion takes a long time to complete. The potion is a powerful one and requires great skills to make. A small mistake can cause more damage than good. It would take a long time to complete, so isn’t it better to just hide with an invisibility cloak and follow them? I mean there’s a chance they may talk about it. Anyway, that’s just a thought. Have you thought of any other ideas?

When Harry tries to stop the snake in duel practice, he speaks parseltongue unknowingly. So, students believe that he is the heir of Slytherin. They find that Draco Malfoy was not the heir, but a girl who died 50 years ago when the chamber of secrets was last opened. Harry finds an enchanted diary of a former student named Tom Marvolo Riddle. The book shows Harry what happened 50 years ago.

Meanwhile, Hermione is also petrified while she was searching the snake as she found out what was the monster. Leaves Harry and Ron to solve the problem? What about Dumbledore and other teachers? Well, the heroes are the trio, so they are supposed to solve it, right? Harry and Ron find a note in the hand of Petrified Hermione showing it was Basilisk, a giant snake and it was moving through pipes.

They find that Gilderoy Lockhart was a fraud and trying to flee. So, Harry and Ron take him with them in the chamber of secrets. Why? Well, there are many discussions you will enjoy. It is the duty of defence against the dark arts teacher to protect the school from dark magic. So, they take Lockhart and he tried to wipe their memories with Ron’s broken wand, the wand which backfired Ron’s eat slug spell. It also backfired on Lockhart and lost his memory.

The ceiling of the chamber of secrets falls and the hero, Harry keeps moving as rocks of the fallen ceiling were in the middle for Ron and lost person Lockhart to move on. Harry uses his snake language to open the door of the chamber of secrets and there’s Ginny with Diary and Tom Riddle aka Voldemort in his Handsome young form. The true heir of Slytherin, who controls the Basilisk to kill Harry Potter, its eyes alone can kill you if you look into it. Harry is saved by Phoenix which damages the eyes of Basilisk. Then harry kills the basilisk with the sword of Godric Gryffindor which he found from the Sorting Hat, which was brought by Phoenix.

Well, there are also, classes of Lockhart, Aragog the spider, Moaning Myrtle the girl who died, and much more. Watch the movie or read the book to refresh your memories.
