Darkest of Times Part 1

INTRO

HARRY

Hello, {FIRST_NAME}. I'm glad I found you -- I'm afraid we've got a situation on our hands. The Calamity has become more active. It seems to centre around Dumbledore... and maybe Voldemort.


Now, most of the new Foundables can be tied directly to Dumbledore, but... depending on how you look at them, they're connected to Voldemort, too. We need to be vigilant.


BRILLIANT DUMBLEDORE

HARRY

Seeing Dumbledore struggle against an Inferius reminds me of that moment in the cave, trying to recover one of Voldemort's Horcruxes. I don't think it's a great sign that the Calamity is manifesting Inferius Confoundables.


BRILLIANT FAWKES

HARRY

Fawkes was a loyal companion to Dumbledore, everybody knows that. It's less commonly known that one of his feathers was used to make my wand... and also Voldemort's.


PROFESSOR TRELAWNEY

HARRY

Trelawney was Professor of Divination while Dumbledore was Headmaster, but she also made prophecies about Voldemort... I have no idea what to make of this.


GLASS JUG OF PUMPKIN JUICE

HARRY

I don't even want to theorize why Pumpkin Juice is a Foundable. If it turns out there's something sinister about Pumpkin Juice, I'd be gutted.


POST OWL

HARRY

You recover an owl, and I'm here wondering if there's a deeper meaning. It's just an owl... right?


PROFESSOR BURBAGE

HARRY

If you remember, Professor Burbage was brutally murdered by Voldemort for being an advocate of Muggle rights. Why would the Calamity make her a Foundable? Is it her connection to Voldemort, or Dumbledore?


END

HARRY

Here's what we know so far: the Calamity is producing Foundables related to Dumbledore. Or Voldemort. Or both of them. I don't quite know what to make of that.
