Dumbledore is dead. And so is Moody. I can’t help but think if I’d been able to get there…. /Then you might be dead too./ the sensible voice in the back of my head adds for me.
The Ministy is going through the process of officially identifying the bodies, but most of us are already pretty sure it’s them. I keep finding myself hoping we’ll get the reports back, and somehow it will all have been a mistake. One of Dumbledore’s quirky little jokes, or some elaborate plan he couldn’t let the rest of us in on, lest the whole thing fall apart. But I’m not betting on it.
Pieces from Tom’s robes were found at the scene, but no remains for him. Which means either his body was completely destroyed (something I consider highly unlikely, seeing as we have remains for the other two and even magical deaths leave something behind) or that he’s still alive and is….elsewhere. And if I were him in that case, I’d be sure to stay in that ‘elsewhere’ until I have a damn good explanation.
Arrangements are quickly being made for the trials against the deatheaters that were captured. We all know they’re guilty, but everything still has to be done officially. The last thing any of us want is to have someone like Malfoy go free on a regulation technicality. For the first time in all my time as an Auror, I’m finding myself wishing we could just throw all the rules and regulations out the window.
The interrogations, though the ministry is reluctant to call them that, of the captured deatheaters begin today. Due to the continued neutrality, the ministry is calling them ‘interviews’, which of course, is complete rubbish. None of the Aurors assigned to the task are particularly looking forward to spending time at Azkaban, but it’s a unanimous feeling that our reason for being their negates any reluctance. I must say, I’m looking very forward to interviewing
Malfoy myself. Current Mood: contemplative

|Private, warded entry
So many things going on, the Ministry, the Order. And I’m still not liking the fact that we have heard absolutely nothing from the deatheaters of late. I know that sounds utterly crazy, but I’d rather have them running amok where we can see them and take them out than wait for them to strike on us unexpected. Each thing by itself is a small point at best, but it’s like raindrops. A few are never noticeable, but put enough together and you can eventually get a flood.
There seems to be sufficient drama at the school to keep Tonks occupied, and Severus’ tenuous position with the deatheaters is no doubt keeping him busy. Hestia’s still in recovery, The Weasleys….have their own matters to attend to right now. Alastor sees conspiracies everywhere as it is. Dumbledore is acting strangely in his own way. Remus has his own causes to work on, and Sirius is about as cut off as any of us can get. Maybe I’m just being needlessly anxious. If that’s the case, Moody’s going to have company on the paranoia train. I think I need to get a fresh perspective on things. Perhaps someone who hasn’t been involved of late, but has been around to see things. Emmaline maybe. She’s one of the quieter members of the Order, not prone to stir things up. But as I fully know myself, silence by no means indicates obliviousness. Current Mood: curious

The prophet headline this morning. I don’t even know what to say. The news, though shocking, is disturbingly unsurprising. So that’s why Molly wasn’t at the Ministry fundraiser, and why the younger Weasleys seemed definitely preoccupied.
What’s the saying “With great power comes great responsibility?” We all have faith in Arthur, but perhaps the pressure of being Minister was too much for him. It is asking a lot of anyone to take on such a role. Maybe there’s more? Perhaps this is just scratching the surface of things that encompass far more than the Weasley’s current situation. Maybe it’s not. Maybe that’s all there is. Scratch the surface and get more surface? But there are so many other things to take into account as well. Little bits here and there. Once again, I’m getting the feeling that there’s some loop that I’m not privy to. I don’t like having to consider all this secrecy and subterfuge. It’s a waste of good energy, and not something our side should have to deal with. At least not amongst ourselves. When did we become so divided, fragmented? It’s definitely starting to seem that way to me. I’d much rather leave such things to the deatheaters. But I suppose you have to fight fire with fire…
This is all starting to remind me of movie my niece showed me the other day. People trying to figure out who did what, where and what they were using? Except there are no dead bodies. (at least not yet) And there’s no one named Mr. Boddy. Merlin, I have got to stop watching movies with that girl. Or at least ask her to stop picking the strange ones. Current Mood: contemplative

|Private RP between Kingsely and Sirus
Many things going on lately. I’m not sure if those involved think we don’t notice, or don’t care if we have. It would help a lot to have a look at the whole picture, which no one seems to have. I suppose all we can do for now is try and keep the Order and all its members functional and at the ready. I’m still a bit worried about Sirius, haven’t really heard much from him. We all know that he’s none too happy about being under house arrest. Add that to being under house arrest with your former Death Eater/formerly thought to be dead little brother and the portrait of your constantly screeching mother, I’m sure he could do with some visitors. Hope he doesn’t mind me dropping by unannounced.
After wrapping things up in the department for the day, I find one of the lesser used, out of the way floo ports. The wards on 12 Grimmauld are set up so that even if anyone tried to follow me or track the last place the port was used to get to, they’ll come up with nothing unless they’re an Order member. I brush the excess floo powder off my robes as I step out of the fireplace. “Sirius, are you around?” /Like wouldn’t be. But knowing his penchant for not staying inside, particularly when he’s under house arrest…../ Current Mood: mellow

|Self rp: Locked and warded to all
Things at the ministry have been abuzz the past few days. Mostly still murmurings about Arthur’s choice for his senior undersecretary. I’ve already voiced my opnions on the subject, so I won’t harp on it. I just hope Arthur knows what he’s getting into. And that Lucius realizes several people will keeping a close eye on him.
I’m still worried about Sirius a bit. He was in something of a state last I knew, with Remus and Regulus not getting along. And now the deatheaters knowing about the both of them…doesn’t exactly make for relaxing days.
I suppose all we can do now is wait and see how things unfold. Current Mood: contemplative

|This whole journal thing is…interesting
Looks like I’m a bit behind on current events, so I’ll take the time to interject my thoughts on a thing or two.
It seems that the Lestranges and assorted…others are running amok again. How nice.
And Arthur Weasley is the new Minister. It’s good to see
someone from the Order
a good friend in the position. I fully expect he’ll be cleaning house, so to speak, from some of Fudge’s damage. Must remember to send him a late note of congratulations. And Malfoy’s his senior undersecretary.
The better to manipulate him, I’m sure.
A Malfoy working for a Weasley, will wonders never cease. I believe I hear the ice in hell cracking this very moment. ( Warded against non Order membersCollapse )
