27 23.5: WWO (Upgrades, People! Upgrades!)

AN: Changed one username from the last WWO interlude. So now, BoningBones (Susan Bones)=SherlockBones. Credit to @Sainen on QQ for the name.

"What is this about? I'm very busy. I have a trial to get to," Percy Weasley said.

He was more than a bit snippy after being summoned to Hogwarts so early in the morning. The twins said they had something important to tell him. 'Family business', they'd said. That was something Percy couldn't easily ignore. Why, it might even affect his new position within the Ministry!

Across from him, a pair of clones smirked. Probably sharing a single brain cell as always, Percy thought. It seemed as if he was the only reasonable child of his siblings. Well, Bill had his head on straight, even if he had no interest in making sure their society continued to run smoothly. Ginny was a devil on a broom and would probably make waves in the Quidditch scene. Charlie had his Dragons. The twins wouldn't know how to apply themselves to anything productive if it hexed them in the face. And the less Percy thought about his youngest brother Ron, the better off he was…

"Don't worry, Percykins-…"

"We won't keep you long."

"Just wanted to tell you about what Dad did the other day-…"

"Just about stormed the Castle."

"Made a big scene of things."

"We thought you might want to know."

Percy tapped his foot in growing irritation, "Stop talking in circles and get to the point!"

"Right, of course, Percykins-…"

"It's about Ron."

"Of course it is…" Percy huffed.

"Ickle Ronald has just about managed to get the whole family in trouble."

"No doubt he would have if we didn't tell Dad about his actions."

Suddenly, the mood grew serious and Percy began to truly worry. Serious twins were an anomaly in Percy's experience. One to be avoided at all costs.

"Young Ronald seems to be going down a dark path."

"We have reason to believe he's already crossed the line of redemption."

"That's why we told Dad about what we found."

"See, Heather Potter was poisoned a couple of days ago."

"Amortentia brewed so poorly that it was toxic. Nasty stuff."

"Dumbledore ruled it as an attempt at murder and Line Theft."

"And what does that have to do with the family?" Percy asked warily, already suspecting the answer.

"Well, we searched Ron's trunk afterward-…"

"And found an incomplete Voodoo doll that might as well have had Heather's name on it."

"Shite…" Percy paled. "If this is discovered, murder would be the least of our worries! Line Theft?! The whole Weasley line would be driven extinct by Ron's idiocy!"

"Relax," Fred reassured.

"That's why we brought in the big spells," George added in twin-speak.

"Dad'll take care of it."

"He knows how serious this could become."

"Never seen him like that before."

"There's a reason he hasn't abdicated the Lordship to Bill yet-…"

"And he certainly showed it when he stormed into the Great Hall."

Despite the situation, Percy couldn't quell the flame of pride for his father, "Thank Merlin for that."

"Anyway, Percykins-…"

"Just thought you should know in case Heather or her scary teacher guardian declares a Blood Feud on our family."

"Yes, I suppose this was worth the trip," Percy said, nodding his thanks. "But I really should get going now. I have a trial to catch and I want to be there at least three hours early so I'm prepared for everything."

The twins grinned, "We won't keep you."

"Have fun, Percykins~"

Percy Weasley left Hogwarts quite a bit more stressed than he arrived. To think that his youngest brother would try his best to drive their whole House into such chaos and ruin… Thankfully, the situation was taken care of. Percy could trust his father to lay down the law. Arthur Weasley may not have been the most textbook example of a Pure-Blood, but let it never be said that he wasn't a good and sensible Lord.

Percy Flooed back to the Ministry and made his way to the designated courtroom to set everything up. He was hoping that he would earn extra points with those who matter with his demonstration of initiative and enthusiasm for the Wizarding justice process.

Hours passed and eventually, the trial was set to begin. Everyone had arrived. Minister Fudge ordered the proceedings into motion. And unnoticed by all there, a sneaky spell attached to Percy Weasley's robes began to broadcast information to a Castle in the Scottish Highlands.

Alright, Hoggy Hoggy Hogwarts (and guests). The day we've been waiting for has finally come. Today, one of our own — a former student and current professor — goes to the Ministry to fight allegations of murder and probably more!

This thread is entirely dedicated to the discussion of that topic. Have at it, people!

Does anyone want to explain why there are Wizarding photos on our parchments now?

►Heather'sMinder (Gryffindor) (Brilliant But Scary)

Replied On Nov 30th 1994:

*Sigh* I guess that's my job...

I suspect the magic is too complicated to fully explain and I don't even want to get into electricity, radio waves, and television.

But the basics are as follows. The 'Wizarding photos' are a real-time recreation of what is happening somewhere else. I suspect the twins have created a spell that broadcasts the events surrounding it from one place to another.

This is the end result of what has to be countless hours of work. We are now able to watch Professor Atlas' trial as it happens.

What I really want to know is how they got the subtitles to work…

Replied On Nov 30th 1994:

Hermione, you should be more careful how you word things. Not only is a duel useful as a defense in this situation, but it's also a long-standing Wizarding tradition.

If deemed appropriate, this duel would mean that Professor Atlas was completely justified in killing the Pure-Blood Lords. The Wizengamot couldn't possibly convict him, even just for the poor precedent it would set.

►Shiva'sBride (Gryffindor) (Indian Goddess) (Love)

To answer Ginny's question (and save Hermione from embarrassment), Gage has to state the obvious to establish continuity for the court. It's a whole thing about procedure. If he doesn't do that, the court can't reasonably 'know' the facts, even if the judges and jury already know them.

Sirius and Bellatrix?! The Wildcard Witch of Slytherin and Hogwarts' most infamous playboy of the last quarter century?! Professor Atlas is practically Gryffindor and Slytherin royalty just based on his parents' Hogwarts careers!

And his solicitor just confirmed they were both unfairly convicted! That's huge! I think I speak for most Pure-Blood girls when I say my mother told me horror stories about Bellatrix Black's situation. Everyone suspected something terrible happened after she was married off but the contract was kept private so no one had any proof. But to have confirmation!? Morgana! The Pure-Blood Ladies are going to riot!

She should have known her place and done her duty to her husbands. They gave her a place at the Dark Lord's side. Bellatrix Lestrange should be grateful for everything that ancient contract did for her.

Good job, Nott, you wanker. You've single-handedly managed to get yourself sanctioned by the entire female population of three separate schools. You better pray they don't take things even further.

*Scoff* Even I'm not that stupidly prejudiced. Also, that's my aunt you're talking about, Knobhead! Watch your opinions before you earn yourself a sudden, surprise trip down the stairs.

Draco? Good luck with that.

He is just little stupid. Like all boys. I will fix. Little Dragon, you will take me to Yule Ball.

Replied On Nov 30th 1994:

Hopefully, the fact that he just got a date will distract Draco from Professor Atlas admitting he killed his father...

Ha! Take that, Potter! I've got an actual date now!

Are you sure you want to try and fix him?

Is kind of cute. Like a little dragon. I will fix.

So the anonymous foreign Witch Professor Atlas saved was Gabrielle, right? That's the only way she could have bonded to him.

*Swoon* Yes~ So romantic. Like a dark avenging angel, he swooped in and slaughtered the men who threatened my purity.

Last question. But it seems Professor Atlas has managed to sway the Wizengamot.

What a brain-dead question at that...

It seems Granger has found a good figurehead for her revolution. A Muggle-raised Pure-Blood with a grudge against the Ministry for people to rally around.

Like the Titan of myth, Professor Atlas will hold up a new Wizarding world on his metaphorical shoulders...

Merlin, five Houses? Add in the fact that he's now one of the most potentially powerful Pure-Blood Lords in society.

After the reveal of his heritage, was there ever any doubt about the eventual ruling? The Wizengamot wouldn't convict a Pure-Blood Heir just because Fudge said to.

Of course, now they're going to be arguing over him for the rest of the day.

Well, that seems to be a wrap, folks. Thank you all for coming and being the first to try our invention. We'll leave this thread up for you all to discuss but the main event seems to be done and dealt with.
