Circus Calamitous Part 2

INTRO

CONSTANCE

{NAME}, there's a new surge in the Calamity and guess what? The Circus Arcanus has returned.


What is it about this particular, rather obscure circus from a hundred years ago, that is driving the Calamity?


BRILLIANT KAPPA

CONSTANCE

Is that a Kappa? They're rather unpleasant creatures that feed on blood and enjoy strangling unwary humans.


To be honest, in this case, returning it to captivity in the circus seems like the best option for everyone involved. Except for maybe the Kappa.


BRILLIANT NAGINI

CONSTANCE

Nagini... now that's curious. Didn't Voldemort have a snake by that name?


CANDYFLOSS STAND

CONSTANCE

Now this is more like it! Nothing morally ambiguous about returning fluffy, pink candy floss back where it belongs, is there?


Unless it was made by...


Nope, nope. It's just plain, old candy floss. Nothing tragic about it.


CLOWN

CONSTANCE

Guh, I hate clowns. They give me the collywobbles. That said, judging from the depressed look on this one's face, I feel a bit bad sending him back to that horrible circus.


FIREDRAKE

CONSTANCE

I don't know of a safe way to contain fiery, flying reptiles, but cramming them together in a cage just seems cruel. Not to mention a fire hazard.


ONI POSTER

CONSTANCE

As a little girl, I used to adore vintage circus posters. Now that I've finally seen an old-timey circus up close, I think I've lost my desire to go to one.


END

CONSTANCE

Reports of Circus Arcanus Foundables are becoming less frequent. I think we're in the clear with this Calamity surge.


I must say, I find it rather incredible that the Calamity seemed to almost be testing our moral fortitude. I wonder what caused that?


There has been a lot of discussion among members of the SOS Task Force, and even inside the Ministry. People are agonizing over some of the choices we have to make.


I don't think it's ever going to feel perfect to return Tom Riddle to Hogwarts right around the time he's learning about Horcruxes, for example... but we have to do it.


Any other choice would be irresponsible at best, and catastrophic at worst.
