Lethal Adversary

Intro

Hermione

That's your fifth cup of coffee in two hours. Rough night?


Harry

You could say that. This is going to sound unbelievable, but... Bellatrix's sadistic laughter kept waking me up. I knew it had to be imagining it, but it sounded so real, Hermione. For a moment, I even thought I saw her...


Hermione

It's quite possible you actually did. SOS Task Force members are reporting encounters with an Adversary resembling Bellatrix Lestrange.


Harry

I was afraid so. Well, that explains all the nightmares I've been having these past few days. If Constance really is responsible for these Adversary attacks, imprisonment certainly hasn't slowed her down.


Hermione

I'm going to talk to Constance and make her see reason. This has to be stopped before someone gets irrevocably hurt.


Outro

Hermione

I've tried to be patient and understanding with you, Constance, but enough is enough. You need to end these Adversary attacks now.


Constance

Why would I do that? I'm just giving the people what they want.


Hermione

Who could possibly want some of the wizarding world's greatest and most dangerous Dark wizards and witches running loose and hurting innocent people?


Constance

The SOS Task Force members, for starters. Haven't you ever wondered why they're so eager to throw themselves into the face of danger? It's not because they care about the Statue of Secrecy. At least, not really. It's because they want to be Harry Potter. They want to be the Chosen One.


Every witch and wizard who grew up hearing the story of the Boy Who Lived has dreamed of fighting Voldemort and the Death Eaters as he did. Adversaries allow them to do just that, and I won't stop until they've fulfilled that fantasy by duelling the Dark Lord himself.
