"Believe me," croaked Black. "Believe me, Harry. I never betrayed James and Lily. I would have died before I betrayed them."
And at long last, Harry believed him. Throat too tight to speak, he nodded.
Happy Birthday to our Queen, JK Rowling!

Harry Potter 30 Day Challenge
Intend to start this once I submit my bachelor thesis and present it at my university’s thesis conference! So, in give or take a week. (Yikes)
Day 8: hmm, most underrated character is a tough one. Ordinarily I’d put Sirius or Remus here, but I’ve already mentioned both of them in previous days. Maybe Tonks? Our beloved bad-ass Order girl from Hufflepuff? Or maybe just Ron Weasley, the ever-overshadowed sidekick? Seriously, can’t decide… Although, actually just decided I’m going to go with Arthur Weasley! He doesn’t get enough credit for being one of the truly level-headed characters whenever this quality is most needed. And even though Harry can never view or accept him as such (which is sad, come to think of it), he does act like a father-figure towards Harry when he feels the need to prepare him for the knowledge that a serial killer is out to get him in PoA, and he is the one Harry goes to when he has done something wrong (sneaking away from supervision in HBP) and trusts to fix or do something about what he’s struggling with. He searches the Malfoy residence just because Harry believes there might be something there, is always honest with him and never condems him for breaking rules, and when he thinks it’s necessary, he calms Molly down and corrects her when he reckons she’s taking things too far and Harry needs a bit more distance. Altogether, a great guy! :)

Exclusive interview with illustrator Jonny Duddle - plus new covers revealed!
With just over a month to go before the new editions of the “Harry Potter” series go on sale in the UK, Bloomsbury has revealed the final four stunning covers. Ahead of this release, MuggleNet caught up with Jonny Duddle, the illustrator and children’s book author, to discuss his new covers in an exclusive interview.
Even though I love them all and seriously think I want an extra Harry Potter boxset with these editions once a boxset comes out, I must admit to being slightly disappointed in the choice of using the First Task scene as the cover of GoF. The dragon has been done all too many times for that cover, even though it serves no major plot point. People seem to always think the plot of GoF is all about the Triwizard Tournament as a fun competition, which it’s NOT. It’s about deception, basically the cleverest whodunit of all 7 books- I was hoping for a depiction of impostor Moody and his flask behind a depiction of the Goblet of Fire itself. Maybe even the shred of paper with Harry’s name on it and some of the judging faces- or Harry’s own scared face to contrast with the pokerface impostor Moody would have on in the background, subtly holding his flask… That’s honestly what I wanted quite desperately. Wish I was good at drawing so I could make that idea reality myself, but well, I suck :’) But I’m just a bit sad that Jonny Duddle didn’t do that… He seemed to stick to the stereotypes for GoF and HBP as well. HBP I find more understandable though- plus it’s relevant to the plot and does look awesome. But for GoF.. No :(
