Battle of the Department of Mysteries
Part 2

INTRO

HERMIONE

As we knew it would, the surge has returned. And it remains incredibly specific - focused almost entirely on that night we fought Death Eaters in the Department of Mysteries.


CONSTANCE

Do you think Greengrass could be right? That there's more to it?


HERMIONE

Honestly? No. I think he's wrong. But, I've learned over the years that what one thinks and what is the truth do not always match up quite properly... Greengrass can be very sensitive about his department's privacy, but he's also quite smart...


CONSTANCE

So I guess we just what? Return everything and hope a reason for this surge presents itself in the process?


HERMIONE

Exactly. Many of these Foundables are top secret... No matter how they happened to get there, they cannot be left out in the world for any length of time. We must act quickly.

 

BRILLIANT HARRY POTTER

HARRY

Thank you {PLAYERNAME}. Whenever a piece of you is taken by the Calamity it is truly... uncomfortable. Awful, really. Returning it back to me has made me feel far more whole.


CONSTANCE

Harry? Do you have any ideas about this particular surge? It's so very very specific... Hermione thinks it revolves around the Battle of the Department of Mysteries.


HARRY

Well, Hermione is very, very smart, isn't she? And can I tell you a little secret Constance? I do have a few ideas about why this is happening. More than a few. But I am quite late for an appointment and I have to run. You'll have to wait.


CONSTANCE

Well, that's not fair! He drops a hint like that and then apparates off into the mist? Not fair at all!


 GINNY WEASLEY

HERMIONE

I always admired Ginny's courage. She really was, even as a young girl, incredibly brave. A perfect match for Harry I think.


HERMIONE GRANGER

HERMIONE

I'm wondering if maybe that piece of my memory being stolen from me was causing those dreams I was having? There are all kinds of theories about how events in your life shape who you are - perhaps when the Calamity steals something seminal to your growth, your body knows it's missing?


MASKED DEATH EATER

HERMIONE

Those hideous masks... They're a sign of weakness, aren't they? You know you are landing squarely on the wrong side of history when you have to wear a mask in public because the cause you support is that unpopular.


PROPHECY ORB

HERMIONE

I used to have strange dreams about those orbs after that night. All of those voices, lost to time... I always wondered - how did the Ministry manage to gather so many in the first place?


MYSTERIOUS NOTE

1ST PIECE

HERMIONE

Oh look - it's another fragment of a note... Perhaps - once we can assemble it - it might give us a clue about the nature of this particular surge.


2ND PIECE

HERMIONE

Odd. This looks like it might be Harry's handwriting. I can't make out the contents but... I think Harry may have written this.


3RD PIECE

HERMIONE

So we have a final note - in Harry's handwriting. And it says this: “I did this”. That's it. “I did this”. Did what exactly?


CONSTANCE

Could the note be old? Something from the past? Or can someone else be using a spell so it looks like Harry's handwriting?


HERMIONE

We could always ask him. Is he about?


CONSTANCE

No, he has been conspicuously absent lately.


HERMIONE

Well, when we find him, he can explain this... I think... Maybe. I don't know, Constance, this whole surge is so frustrating!


END

HARRY

Hermione! It worked. This surge - it was me. I caused it.


HERMIONE

You???


HARRY

I figured out how Grim manipulated the Calamity. It's not easy - it's rather hard, really - but it can be done for a short period of time. And in that time window you can use it to communicate - either through things like that note I left you or by implanting memories in the living Foundables you convince the Calamity to steal.


HERMIONE

Can you stop it?


HARRY

No. It's impossible to simply stop it. It's like an ocean. You cannot stop an ocean. You can ride it, and try to guide it... It's incredible and terrifying and like nothing I've ever seen before... And as I rode the wave of thought and passion and yearning driving the Calamity, I realized that if Grim and I can manipulate this...


Someone else could too. It's incredibly powerful, Hermione. So much more dangerous than we ever imagined.
