Did nobody else find it bizarre, that despite being slain by schoolmate Herbert Longbottom during the First Task, Briony Prosser won the tournament after brutally abandoning Kasper Kats to the Dementor’s Kiss? Why was his very public relationship with Ms. Coture left uninvestigated for so long? Eyewitnesses and former friends of the notorious mass murderer claim a drastically different personality from the one we have all experienced at the Tri-Wizard Tournament.
Why? Tonight, the events of t
The controversy surrounding the nature of this year’s Triwizard Tournament has reached a fever pitch with its nail-biting conclusion. Listening in to live commentary straight from Durmstrang, fans across Europe sat on the edges of their seat in anticipation, oblivious to the reality of the Labyrinth of Doom.
The bait was set: the Triwizard Cup, luring the twelve into the heart of the ultimate trap. What should have been a race for glory was revealed as a ploy meant to lead the twelve champion
Although this third task is even more guarded than the shocking second task, we at the Daily Prophet have been told that this will be the toughest challenge they have faced yet. The champions sure have their work cut out for them and they must come into this task with their wits and strengths in check if they want to succeed in the end. It left this reporter wondering, who would come out at top overall? Did the Goblet choose the most worthy Hogwarts students for this tournament? Do any other sch
Following the interesting discovery that savage bully Herbert Longbottom and Hogwarts delegate Apple Capalet used to date, WW99 FM hosted a talk with the Hufflepuff student to reveal the truth about the son of legendary war hero Neville Longbottom. For those who missed it, an excerpt of the interview with the clearly traumatised delegate can be found below.
—— Interviewer: So, Apple, can you tell us exactly what was going through your mind when Herbert first asked you to be his girlfriend?
Your number one source for inside gasp, gruel, and gossip this Triwizard Tournament is back once again with groundbreaking news that could grind Durmstrang’s reputation to dust once and for all. The institution has already suffered significant budget cuts over the past few years, but recent events suggest the Headmaster will soon be dealing with highly probable substantial financial setbacks (and a plausible intervention by Ministry officials!).
Only yesterday, two students were caught red-ha
Wizards across Europe were left in shock this week after details of the second Triwizard task slowly came to light. Perhaps the most startling piece in the puzzle the literal fog that kept the precise circumstances of this task under wraps.
Readers will recall the appalling act of terrorism just this summer, when the End of Term feast at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry was infiltrated by nefarious sources. With details on how the castle, which many still claim to be the safest plac
Evidence suggests that the Yule Ball, occurring at Durmstrang School on the evening of December 31st, was put on hold as the champions were forced to complete one of the most mentally challenging tasks in Triwizard history.
And what’s more, one particular portion of this second task saw the twelve champions having to choose between two of their loved ones.
One had been petrified in the centre of a large chamber, while the other was being held hostage in the presence of a basilisk by inhuma
We all have embarrassing moments, even the Champions at the Yule Ball. Our awkward competitors didn’t ruin the night. However, there were some not so perfect moments at the dance. Irwin Cablamb is here to share all the goofs and blunders of the night! The blunders are rated from one * meaning blush-inducing, to ***** meaning totally awkward!
**Reports indicate that Beauxbatons champion Kasper Kats was easily impressed by the chairs. All the effort put into decoration could have been saved if
Yes, dear readers, the thought “too soon” might be running through your minds upon reading these words, but the truth must be told and our sources have plenty of it. New evidence suggests that when Hogwarts champion Briony Gretel Prosser was viciously masticated by the nundu of doom (still at large and whereabouts unknown, I might add) during the first task, it might have been more than just the hungry beast at work.
So what — or WHO — was to blame?
My sources have informed me that the dea
Lovely, loyal readers, we have failed you. Yes, we have brought you news of failure and triumph. Yes, we have brought you news of Miss Prosser’s downward spiral into death, also known as the pit of a nundu’s stomach. But we have not given you news of how these champions live, the tumultuous youth to whom you have given your pride in hopes they will bring back victory.
Fear not, I – Chara Abrams, guest writer - bring you the freshest news from the sharpest talons today into the lives of two: W
For days, rumors have been swirling surrounding the first task of this year’s Triwizard Tournament, hosted by the notoriously secretive Durmstrang Institute. The slow trickle of information from the school has been unreliable and often erroneous, which is why this reporter traveled to the school to view the task with his own eyes. This reporter was not, admittedly, permitted access to the premises due to a variety of… dubious legal difficulties… but this reporter must assure his readers that all
Early this morning, 12 champions from Durmstrang, Beauxbaton and Hogwarts set out for their first task of the Triwizard Tournament. With no clues to indicate what they would be facing, the champions set out with nothing but rumors and guesses guiding their movements before the task was revealed. This reporter is happy to let the loyal readers of the Daily Prophet finally know about what our champions faced and how the task ended up.
The first of three tasks started off with creatures! Their m
What champions have already been lucky enough to score a date to the exclusive Yule Ball? We have all the answers right here, exclusively given to Witch Weekly by an anonymous source stationed at frosty Durmstrang.
It is a surprise for us to see that Beauxbatons champion Eglantine Coture agreed to go to the ball with the infamous Gryffindor bully Herbert Longbottom! While Herbert does have redeemable qualities in his facial appearance, he is quite husky and bulky for the delicate champion. We
This is it! Christmas is just around the corner and with the TriWizard Tournament going on, we all know what that means! That’s right- the Yule Ball! Who’s going with who? What drama is likely to unfold? With just five male champions, and seven female champions, there’s sure to be some catfights over claiming the guys. Let’s not forget the delegates, which make the numbers eight males and twelve females. More to come in the next issue while we cover the latest trends, fashions and what the myste
Now that our twelve Tri-Wizard Champions have been chosen, the tournament itself is the new hot topic. As we count down the days until our Hogwarts Heroes have to face their potential demises, your restless Daily Prophet Reporter spends her time investigating the nature of the upcoming tasks.
Upon approaching those responsible for planning and organizing the tournament tasks with a radiant smile and a quick-notes quill hovering over our heads, your favorite reporter receives few answers, the
A recently published personality quiz, in which teenage females can find their ideal match in one of this year’s male Triwizard Tournament champions, has caused quite a stir amongst the young European wizarding population.
The quiz, published in a late November issue of ‘Witch Weekly,’ contained questions such as “Do you like muggles?” and “Are you a fan of Harry Potter?” for girls to answer to help them find their perfect match.
Research indicates that the viral quiz has been extremely su
The stage has been set: the Triwizard champions will soon face their first task against the backdrop of the unforgiving tundra. In a break from the tradition of past competitions, the champions will enter their task without a single clue, and blind to the challenges that await them. Without guidance, the champions must rely on themselves, armed only with their wands and their wits. Skill, tenacity, and perseverance will separate the true champions from the rest.
Our first impressions of the c
With speculation thick in the air as the date of the First Task of the highly anticipated Tri-Wizard Tournament looms closer, we consider less of fact and more of fan driven myth. Let us change this today by thoroughly analyzing the facts as they present themselves:
The Tri-Wizard Tournament is a thrilling spectator sport. We can expect some thrill.
It is likely that the champions from each school will be working in groups for the first task.
Giant cages were reportedly
Welcome back! In our previous issue we covered six of the twelve representatives Hogwarts has chosen, and in this piece we will discuss the six we have left.
Hufflepuff delegate Briony Prosser is the one you should be betting on, with a list of achievements that many will only ever crave to have. Despite her many duties as Head Girl, the girl is a regular of the duelling chamber and is a consistent top-ranker in Hogwarts’ duelling tournaments. Her bubbly personality is sure to garner her the
As the spotlight falls on the most outstanding of the British wizarding youth once again, you might find yourself wondering who exactly these twelve young whippersnappers are, shortly to be sent abroad as an example of Hogwarts’ educational prowess. Well wonder no longer! I was lucky enough to be granted short interviews with every member of the Hogwarts delegation earlier this week and let me tell you, Durmstrang is not going to know what hit it.
Those of you familiar with the professional d
Basking in the glory of their new-found fame, enter the freshly-selected Hogwarts delegates.
Your resident Daily Prophet reporter was left to observe the lucky twelve from afar, perched atop an old wobbly stool in Hogwarts’ Great Hall as the whole school attended a celebratory luncheon in their honour.
But it wasn’t all plain sailing, as events related in any way to the Triwizard Tournament are always guaranteed to be.
As expected, the three D’s – disruption, disagreement and disappoint
The Triwizard Tournament has been a beloved tradition for the trinity of schools – Hogwarts, Beauxbatons and Durmstrang – for nearly 700 years. This year, hosted by the elusive Durmstrang Institute, it has promise of danger and adventure, thrilling tests for our brilliant youth. Just last night, a reliable source, speaking in anonymity, has released the following list of students who will be traveling to the frosty lands as Hogwarts’s delegates:
Yesterday the Daily Prophet received word that there was an accidental fire in the Headmaster’s Office at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Arthur Weasley, current headmaster of the school who is known for his love of muggle artifacts, left some of these devices in the office and one of them exploded, causing flames to singe some portraits of former headmasters and headmistresses. Today, a restoration professional entered the school to fix the portraits of Basil Fronsac, Brian Gagwilde
The Quidditch World Cup is here in the United Kingdom at last! The opening ceremony featured The Sparkle Lord in massive amounts of frivolity and sparkles, though the crowd seemed to love him and I’m fairly sure he’s written everything on the WWN ever. This year, competing for that elusive cup, will be Kenya, Madagascar, Brazil, El Salvador, Jamaica, Peru, India, Japan, Thailand, Andorra, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Ireland, and finally, the country we know you’re all rooting for, ou
After the success of England’s domestic teams on both the British and international stage this year, it is no surprise that we at the Daily Prophet - and beyond! - predict greatness from our national team as they prepare for the pinnacle of wizarding sport: The Quidditch World Cup! The Daily Prophet has spoken with experts from every facet of the magical community to come up with solid proof that England’s path through the competition will be easier than cobbing a flobberworm.
