  • In the middle of the room, you will find the Mirror of Erised, which you can click for some new writing from J. K. Rowling about the mirror.
  • If you hover the mouse over the table at the right side of Harry, a little spider will come and crawl on it.


The sound in this moment is all very faint creaking and wind.
