Re: What did Umbridge have against Harry in the first place???

She definitely wanted to discredit Harry, but maybe there was a little bit more to it.

There are often instances where someone appears to be working for the higher authority - and in this case I mean Fudge NOT Voldemort but really they're just doing it so that they can take over themselves.

Maybe she was hoping that if she could discredit Harry enough, get enough backing behind her then ultimately she would get a promotion or if her ultimate gain was to get to be Minister for Magic, then that.

I can see why people think she might have been working with/for Voldemort but he's quite a subtle man, she wasn't subtle at all.

I personally think she's like Percy, likes to be seen as the one with the power, or as the one working with the person who has the power (Fudge). Picks the biggest bully in the playground to work with.

Mrs Weasley set the potion down on the bedside cabinet, bent down, and put her arms around Harry. He had no memory of ever being hugged like this, as though by a mother. The full weight of everything he had seen that night seemed to fall in upon him as Mrs Weasley held him to her. His mother's face, his father's voice, the sight of Cedric, dead on the ground, all started spinning in his head until he could hardly bear it, until he was screwing up his face against the howl of misery fighting to get out of him
