Narcissa & Draco Malfoy
Story Released at Event Start
Face the relentless members of the Malfoy family!
Judging by the way you're attacking that scone, I take it your follow-up with Millicent Bagnold didn't go well.
No, it was a complete waste of time. While she could vaguely recall the trial from your dreams, she couldn't identify the defendant. According to her, the numerous high-profile cases she presided over have largely eclipsed the lesser offenders in her memory.
I briefly considered that Millicent's memory of that day may have been tampered with or Obliviated. But, honestly, it seems more likely that her age has caught up with her. I hope you had better luck searching court records.
Admittedly, I haven't had a chance to take a look. Between caring for Ron and preparing agents for this latest surge of Narcissa and Draco Malfoy Adversaries, I've barely had a moment to breathe, let alone do any research. But I promise I'll get on it as soon as I can.
No, you keep focusing on Ron. I'll search the records. Reading decades of court transcripts may be just what I need right now to calm my nerves. Plus, if I'm being honest, it's difficult to be around Ron right now. I know he can't help it, but when he looks at me like a stranger... it's almost more than I can stand.
I read through the transcripts of every trial Millicent Bagnold presided over. None of them seemed to match the one you described.
Ministry recordkeeping is usually quite thorough. I doubt a major incident like the one in your dream would have been omitted. Which means the memory was either modified or records of the trial have conveniently gone missing.
If last night's dream is to be believed, those records aren't the only thing our suspect made disappear. They snuck into Penelope Fawley's office and stole a few of her case files and journals too, presumably after she went missing.
My theory that The Unforgivable have a mole within the Ministry is looking more and more likely, isn't it?
We can't rule out that an outsider may have infiltrated the Ministry. After all, we did, and we were just kids. But I agree that it's certainly a possibility we have to consider... even if I'd rather not.
