I think it’s time to learn about Harry Potter – in case you don’t know much about it. Today, the pensieve is taking you, the readers, into information about Dumbledore’s Army…
Dumbledore’s Army is a group of students from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry who have joined to create a Defence Against the Dark Arts group to prepare them from He Who Must Not Be Named, who had recently returned after several years. The group was led by Harry Potter, who had actually seen He Who Must Not Be Named return. The group was created in the middle of Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix. The DA first met in The Hog’s Head, an unpopular pub in Hogsmeade. Here, Hermione Granger (the co-leader of the group) asked the members of the group to sign a piece of parchment to permanently make them part of Dumbledore’s Army.

Shortly after the first meeting, while pondering where Dumbledore’s Army would meet for training, Harry Potter encounters his friend Dobby, a house-elf, who tells Harry about the Room of Requirement, a room that will provide the user with anything they need. The group trained every session in the Room of Requirement after Harry found out.

Cho Chang’s (a girl in Dumbledore’s Army) friend, Marietta (who was also in Dumbledore’s Army) told Dolores Umbridge (who, like He Who Must Not Be Named, Dumbledore’s Army was working against) and so therefore, the group couldn’t train anymore.

Two years later, in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Dumbledore’s Army is reformed by Neville Longbottom and Ginny Weasley, in the desperate resistance against Amycus and Alecto Carrow. Neville brings Harry, Ron and Hermione into the Room of Requirement, where Harry explains that he has to fight He Who Must Not Be Named. This results in everyone saying that they want to fight too. Harry accepts, and then regrets it, for many die in the attempt to stop He Who Must Not Be Named from ruling over the Wizarding and Muggle worlds.
So, that is all about Dumbledore’s Army! We’ll be writing more soon! By the way, I only wrote this out of my head. I did no research at all. The pictures came from the Dumbledore’s Army article on the Harry Potter wiki.
