Harry and Dobby go to Diagon Alley together for pre-school shopping. At Gringotts, Haryr learns of the goblins' hatred for elves. Dobby is attacked and mortally wounded by an enraged goblin, but is taken to goblin healers in a goblin home under Gringotts. When he awakens, he falls in love with the goblin healer tending him.

Harry and the others run into Bill and Fleur and learn that Bill is being called back to Egypt because a site he had worked on has been tampered with. Harry tells him it was Voldemort. Bill tells them what he knows about the site. Harry runs into Draco Malfoy at Flourish and Blotts. Later, while Ginny is trying out her new Firebolt, Harry has a vision which shakes him up badly. To get over it, he takes them all to Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlor to see the goblin menu, with a variety of reactions.

Dobby has his date with the goblin Melony and brings her to the Gryffindor common room to meet with Harry and his friends. They discuss goblin life and wizard-goblin relations.
Harry has classes in Apparation, Occulemency and Defense Against the Dark Arts
Harry is apprehensive as the first DA meeting approaches. Attendance turns out higher than he had anticipated. He gives an introductory speech and they begin practicing. After the meeting, he makes plans with Cho Chang to talk out the distress both still feel over Cedric Diggory's death.
Harry has long talks with Cho Chang and Marietta Efdgecombe. Later, Harry, Ron, Hermione and Luna visit Hagrid and have a long talk about creatures. Harry gets Hagrid's help to test Patronuses by making students deal with a lethifold.
Hermione goes with Harry to the dorm to see how the communicating mirror works. While there she sees the gum wrappers Alice Longbottom had given Harry and they discuss possibilities. Dumbledore approves the plan to bring in a lethiform to practice the Patronus Charm. Later, in a DA session, Fred and George Weasley square off against Hermione. Afterward, Harry announces to the whole DA about the lethiform and that he will be demonstrating how to fight it on Halloween evening.
Harry demonstrates to the school the use of the Patronus Charm to fight the lethifold. However, things go awry.
Harry is taken to the Hospital Wing, where his treatment from the lethifold's injuries begins. He finds it quite embarrassing, as well as soothing, to have murtlap salve applied.
Harry is visited by a number of friends after the Halloween Feast. Among other things, they discuss the gumwrappers Alice Longbottom gave to Harry.
Harry is visited by Dobby, Melony and Flitwick in the Hospital Wing. Melony explains that the goblins are taling of war and rebellion because of the new proposed law which would leave all goblin homes vulnerable to attack and because of the recent death of a goblin from heliopathy.
Hermione and Harry do homework together during the Ravenclaw-Slytherin game. Their friends visit when the game is over and describe it all. Harry tells them about the anti-Apparation charm proposal and they decide to raise public sentiment against it.
Before leaving for Christmas Break, Hermione gives Harry and Ron parchment on which she has copied the pattern of dots she found on the gum wrappers Alice Longbottom had given to Harry. As they are looking at the parchment with Ginny, the Creeveys see it and give them a lead as to what the code might be.
Harry, Ginny and Ron make plans for the DA to conduct a large practice battle while they wait for Hermione to send them a Braille translation key. When the key arrives, they decipher the message of the gumwrappers, but it still makes no sense to them. Harry asks Dumbledore for help, and learns what he wants to know, but finds they are at a dead end.
After a very pleasant Christmas, Harry and friends get serious again about goblin politics and securing scarab charm from Voldemort.
The article Harry and friends wrote for The Quibbler about the Anti-Apparation bill is published. A hogsmeade weekend approaches and Harry tells Ron and Hermione he's not going. Staying behind, he runs into Marietta Edgecombe and their relationship becomes much more personal.
Harry and Marietta discuss their relationship, which Marietta wants to keep secret. Harry is allowed to tell Hermione who helps them get together. In quidditch, Slytherin beats Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw beats Gryffindor when Ron calls a poorly-timed play.
The DA holds its Spring Skirmish and everyone is pleased with what they learned - except for Marietta's team, which is held out of the battle by Ron. After the injured are removed to the Hospital Wing, Harry confronts Ron about it and they argue. Afterwards Marietta thanks Harry for standing up for her, but then she breaks up with him. Hermione comforts Harry, until Harry's scar tells him that Bill Weasley is being attacked.
Harry tells Professor Dumbledore about the attack on Bill as Hermione brings the Weasleys around. Harry feels that he has brought all the hardships on the Weasleys, but they reassure him. They all gather at Professor Weasley's office. Dumbledore tells them how the threat has been resolved and has a talk with Harry about the extent of his connection with Voldemort, particularly Voldemort's new tack to get at the secret of the Egyptian site.
The last two games of the season decide the Quidditch Cup. After he catches the snitch in a hard-fought game against Slytherin, Harry is caught up in a celebration different than others he has seen.
Harry attends the Quidditch Cup celebration in the Ravenclaw Common Room and must defeat a charmed object - the Snogging Hat.
The morning run is interrupted by Dobby and Melony, seeking help because Gringotts is under attack by an army commanded by Minster Fudge. The goblins are helpless because of the army is led by heliopaths. The aurors are occupied, so it is decided that Harry with go with Dobby and Melony to try to help inside Gringotts and the older DA members will go with Professor Weasley to Diagon Alley to try to mount a counterattack.
While the battle rages above them, Harry is held hostage by Shacklebolt to force Melony to open the vault with the key to the Egyptian shrine. Harry disrupts the plan, but in the melee, Melony is gravely injured. Harry holds her lifeless body until the battle is over and the goblins return. Hermione and Arthur Weasley are summoned to help Harry with his injuries, and Harry learns about the casualties of the DA in the street-level battle.
Dumbledore brings Harry, Hermione and several members of the Wizengamot into Gringotts for a parley with the goblins to sort out a new relationship. The goblins agree to participation on the Wizengamot, but insist on veto over any proposed MoM. Dumbledore declines, but they have a test for the next proposed candidate. After that is settled, Dobby is offered a reward and he proves who he truly is among the goblins. Then he asks for what matters most to him.
Harry and the rest of the school deal with the results of the Battle of Gringotts. Dumbledore arranges for Harry, Hermione and Dobby to accompany him to Egypt to use the scarab to open the shrine. At the shrine, the message is a promise of peace, but it requires a very difficult task of Harry.
