Lost Love Part 2
25 February 2020
You remember old Dougal McGregor? From the last Calamity surge? Well, I did some research and suspect that he and McGonagall were engaged!
Can you imagine Professor McGonagall head-over-heels in love? It's interesting, because it seems that the Calamity is fixated on the idea of lost love.
Severus Snape was famously in love with Lily Potter, and now we're seeing Foundables related to them. We need to work out what the connection is.
BRILLIANT MIRROR OF ERISED
Would you want to look into the Mirror of Erised? I'm not sure what my deepest desires are... or if I'd even want to know. I bet Snape saw himself with Lily.
BRILLIANT SEVERUS SNAPE
Snape is such a mysterious, brooding figure. Tall, dark, and a potions genius to boot. If you consider his life, it's rather tragically romantic, don't you think?
INFUSION OF WORMWOOD
Wormwood, wormwood... I'm trying to remember... ah! It's an ingredient in the Draught of Living Death. I wonder if it has any deeper meaning?
PHOTOGRAPH OF LILLY AND SEVERUS
Oh! Look at this photo of Lily and Snape together... she's a lot prettier than I'd imagined.
Do you think I'd look good with red hair?
VASE OF LILLIES
Well, I think the meaning of those flowers is plain enough. Maybe Snape used them as a way of keeping Lily nearby...
I wonder what innovative elixirs and potent potions Snape brewed in this cauldron? It's a piece of history!
Don't you think it's a bit odd that the Calamity is focused on love? The going theory is that Grim Fawley incorporated research from the Love Room into his spell -- perhaps the solution to turning the Calamity around is to look more closely at its key ingredient?
After all, love is what created the spell. Maybe it's what we need to stop it.
