Notes on Chapter III of HP


Phew! Ok, so I’m typing this in the dark. Oh well. I’ll live. I’m listening to Coldplay Radio on Pandora. It’s really relaxing. Ahhhhhhh….

So, obviously, Albus and Iris have another run-in. Exciting, right. Actually, it was quite the contrary. Iris was CRYING! And why? Because she feels she may be DISOWNED by her ALL-SLYTHERIN and ALL-PUREBLOOD family, which isn’t really all-pureblood if I may quote Professor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore from the book, The Tales of Beedle the Bard (which is a Wizarding bedtime story book) :

“So-called pure-blood families maintain their alleged purity by disowning, banishing, or lying about Muggles or Muggle-borns on their family trees…”

He wrote that to Mr. Lucius Malfoy, after Mr. Malfoy wrote our late Professor Dumbledore a letter saying:

“Any work of fiction or nonfiction that depicts interbreeding between wizards and Muggles sheould be banned from the bookshelves of Hogwarts…”

For instance, some of us know that Nymphadora Lupin nee Tonks, the late Auror and mother to Teddy Lupin and wife to werewolf Remus Lupin, was a half-blood. Her mother is a pure-blood but her late father Ted Tonks was a Muggle-born. Now, Mr. Malfoy’s wife, Narcissa Malfoy nee Black is Nymphadora’s aunt, and Nymphadora’s mother, Andromeda Tonks nee Black is, well, obviously sisters with Narcissa, which makes Mr. Malfoy Nymphadora’s uncle. Excuse me for confusing you. I tend to blab on and on about Harry Potter.

I will post a picture of a family tree of the Black family so that might help you all understand a little more.

But back to Dumbledore’s point: No family is completely pure-blooded.
