We know in the Harry Potter Canon that both Harry and Ron take to randomly picking books when they’re trying to research something while Hermione is methodological.
Well I had this thought a while back about how funny it would be if Harry actually managed to represent himself well in his trial in OotP because of knowledge he picked up from books he’d read while researching ways to help Hagrid with Buckbeak’s trial.
Like, I understand that the Kangeroo Court Harry had would be very different to the trial of a Hippogriff but Harry’s own narration frames it as Ron doing all the work for it and Harry just being mostly there.
But the way divination works in the books has a roundabout way to it that would make this work: since a different methodology I’ve seen before had someone picking a book at random, then a page, when trying to find information that would be useful to the diviner. In the books, it starts with Harry and Ron looking for magical law but rather then Harry picking up creature law he picks up things relevant to him later down the line. Being from an abusive household he’d see wizarding law more important than helping Buckbeak as awful as that sounds and just start reading.
Perhaps going more into it later on when he finds out about Sirius but probably not by much.
Just… I want to laugh everytime I think about Harry telling the Minister or Umbridge or some other stuffed up Ministry Official that he learnt almost the entirety of wizarding law on a whim because a Hippogriff was unfairly accused of a crime it didn’t commit in his third year and he had a couple of weekends free.

This one is going to be a hippogriff used for Harry Potter themed events by an event company called Steam Pop Creations.
Head blank is a dream vision creations piece. Unlike my earlier puppet, Sarabi the gryphon, this will be operated by two puppeteers. This will allow longer use, an easier time for the puppeteers, a sturdier puppet, and I can make it larger.
