Getting to the ‘Goblet of Fire’ – Difficult Indeed!

Published September 26, 2013 by A. Featherquill

In the fourth Harry Potter book, reaching the Goblet of Fire is not easy. The goblet is well-guarded and under-aged wizards cannot get near it. Waiting for the release of the ‘Goblet of Fire’ adventure makes me feel like I’m one of those under-aged wizards – I feel so close to the goblet, but can’t quite reach it yet.

I really cannot help but wonder when the ‘Goblet’ will be released!

The fun I had with exploring the moments in the first three books, especially in ‘Prisoner of Azkaban’, makes me very excited for the release of ‘Goblet’. That this Harry Potter installment features many important wizarding events like the Quidditch World Cup, the Triwizard Tournament, and the Yule Ball adds to the anticipation and sets my expectations high for the upcoming adventure.

Even now, I imagine seeing the students from Beauxbatons and Durmstrang arrive – the beautiful ladies of Beauxbatons gracefully gliding through the halls of Hogwarts and the men of Durmstrang performing a well-choreographed march. I can envision Harry summoning his Firebolt in order to deal with the Hungarian Horntail in the First Task. Maybe we will be made to click something to summon the broomstick and get past the dragon. Also, I can hear mermaids sing the clue for the Second Task. It’s likely that opening the golden egg will be one of the things we have to do in one of the moments. I can already see Cho Chang dancing with Cedric Diggory and Hermione Granger transforming into a fine young lady as she dances with Viktor Krum in the Yule Ball. Most of all, I am excited to finally see the maze for the Final Task.

What about you? Which moments do you wish to make a cut in the next Pottermore adventure and how do you imagine them to be?

Stay Magical,

P.S. In the meantime, keep on adding points to your respective house by brewing potions, dueling, and doing other activities in Pottermore.

    • Same here, Jeyna! Goblet of Fire is my favorite book! That’s why I’m so excited about its release in Pottermore. Btw, I checked your wordpress blog. You have a nice blog 🙂 So happy to have found it. Let’s follow each other?

  • This is so true.

    Getting to the Goblet of Fire is something every seems to want to do…but do they really understand what they are getting into…

    • Hi, Aspen!

      Great point!

      Most probably, they don’t know what they want to be getting into. Some just do it for the prestige or the adventure. But maybe the names chosen by the goblet do. Not sure if it applies to Harry Potter though because he was not the one who entered his name.

      • True, and very insightful. 🙂

        I think this is true of life as well. We all seem to want to go on “great adventures” but I don’t think we really realize what going through a “great adventure” experience is really like.

        There is a great quote from Lord of the Rings about this idea… “The brave things in the old tales and songs, Mr. Frodo: adventures, as I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull, a kind of a sport, as you might say. But that’s not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have been just landed in them, usually — their paths were laid that way, as you put it.”
