Harry gets up the next morning. Hermione believes him, but she seems to be the only one. She thinks Ron is jealous of Harry, who always gets more attention. She also persuades Harry to write to Sirius.

It's an uncomfortable few days. Harry again finds himself a HeroWithBadPublicity. Not for [[Recap/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStoneC15TheForbiddenForest the first]] or [[Recap/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecretsC12ThePolyjuicePotion the second]] time, but this time he doesn't even have Ron to go to. The Hufflepuffs are furious that their house's day in the sun has been overshadowed, and Malfoy and the Slytherins are as derisive as ever. In a Potions lesson, Malfoy shows a range of "Potter Stinks" badges he has been distributing around the school. That leads to an argument in which they fire spells at each other. In one of his nastiest moments ever, Snape punishes Harry and Ron for causing the scene and shouting at him, while letting Malfoy off scot-free. The torturous lesson is interrupted by Colin Creevey, who sends a message that Harry is to go to a champions event.

It's the "Weighing of the Wands" ceremony, in which the champions have their wands examined. Harry is taken aside by the eccentric ''Daily Prophet'' reporter Rita Skeeter. Skeeter interviews him using a "Quick Quotes Quill". It seems to write the text on its own accord, filling it with PurpleProse and invented facts. Harry is grateful when Dumbledore interrupts them and takes Harry to the wand-weighing ceremony. [[Recap/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStoneC5DiagonAlley Ollivander meets with Harry again]] and is here to examine the wands. Fleur's wand is revealed to have a Veela hair from her grandmother, revealing that she is part-Veela. Krum's wand was made by [[ChekhovsGun Gregorovitch]], a former rival of Ollivander. Then he examines Cedric's and Harry's. Harry is reminded of the last time he met with Ollivander and learned he was buying a wand which [[ChekhovsGun contained a feather from the same phoenix that supplied a feather for Voldemort's wand]].

Later that day, Harry gets his reply from Sirius. Sirius arranges for them to have a conversation in which he will use Floo Powder to access the fireplace in Gryffindor Tower, two days before the day of the Third Task.
