If you were a witch/wizard in the Harry Potter world, would you have believed Harry when he said Voldemort was back in book 4? Be honest.

I probably would have thought, "There's that annoying Potter kid again, making up stories. Someone give him some attention." As a reader, I was sometimes annoyed by Harry and could see why people didn't believe him.

I probably would have withheld judgement until I saw proof/it started affecting me directly.

I would legitimately not give a shit and go back to giving myself magical orgasms with my magic wand.

I would have been a little skeptical at first, but seeing the look on Harry's face (if I could even get a good look) and the obvious uneasy feeling streaming from the professors would have just verified that he was right.

Eugh, I can't stand Harry Potter as a character.
I'd tell him to STFU.

With the coming back with Cedric's dead body and flipping out, yeah, I would believed him. I'm always paranoid anyway, so I woulda been on like full-Voldy alert anyway.

But otherwise, Potter does seem like kind of a whiny snot. So not surprising people didn't believe him.

I think that I'd believe Harry's story because Dumbledore said it was the truth!

Given my mom's eccentric nature, I probably would have been a Luna Lovegood type and believed a whole lot of things.

i think somewhere in my head i would have kept the possibility that hes telling the truth open but i probably wouldnt have openly defended him on him until i knew for sure

Assuming I wasn't at Hogwarts or the Quidditch world cup, then no, I probably wouldn't have believed it.

I might have been skeptical of Harry, but I totally would have believed Dumbledore.

Nah, I would have believed him. Harry is annoying but legit and Dumbledore believed him, so.

I'd have been worried and not dismissed the possibility out of hand, but waited for more proof.

Harry pisses me off so bad. I'm just like, "Can't you LISTEN for once?? JFC. You got Sirius killed because you're an idiot, good job."

True. But if Dumbledore had just sat him down and given to him straight like he did at the end of OotP. Well then Harry wouldn't be falling for the 'go the department of mystery' speil would he.

Wasn't so much Harry didn't listen it was no one was telling him enough.

Hermione stayed on his case about it all that year! Harry was an ignorant slut for thinking he knew better than her!

OK. This comment makes no sense and even less.

'ignorant slut'?!

LOL I've always liked Harry as character. Poor kid had it rough so yeah.

I would at least be skeptical for sure. At that point there were enough instances surrounding Harry Potter that even though he could be annoying, it would be hard not to wonder what was going to happen next. Given the circumstances that Voldemort killed his parents it would make sense to me if Harry Potter were the first to know of his return. In any case, I tend to be a paranoid person, so even if I claimed to not believe him there would be a hidden panic in me most likely.

I'd probably believe him, because the alternative is believing that the school's idea of a game killed a kid. Plus I would believe anything Dumbledore said, so if Dumbledore believed him, then I would, too.

Depends if I knew Harry, I think. But Dumbledore believed him and I think I'd believe Dumbledore.

Depends on the house I was in [assuming I was a student]. Hufflepuff or Gryfindor then yes, I think I would have out right believed him having seen a dead body return and with what happened at the Quidditch world cup. Also, with Dumbledore saying it, I think I would have to believe.

However, I'm a big worry wart so I am likely to worry about most things. Seeing another student die would be good proof for me.

Now, if I didn't attend Hogwarts I would most likely be swayed by my school because they would be the ones constantly around me. If I wasn't in school at all I would probably believe what the prophet had said throughout unless I specifically saw something or had a first hand account from a friend/family member. THEN I would be all 'this is a conspiracy!'

I'd be living way over the pond, having gone to the Salem Witches' Institute in America, and I'd probably not be fully aware of what was going on.

Harry was pretty annoying, huh?

I dunno, though, I've always been a believer in the underdog and it was pretty suspicious.

I would have been dubious for sure. Harry gets into some sort of dramatic trouble every year that the majority of the students don't get to see, so you'd be thinking by now, "really?" And yes, Harry is so annoying sometimes - I'm rereading OOTP right now and I just want to shake him half the time.

Oh, and Hermione makes a good point in OOTP as well - the students were watching the last task, when all of a sudden Harry comes back with Cedric's body, claims Voldemort killed him and is now back, then they're suddenly home for summer and for two months they're reading what the Daily Prophet has to say about the rumors. Who would believe him, really?
