In the summer of 1980, the war between the Death Eaters and the Order of the Phoenix has reached its peak. There have been heavy casualties on both sides, but as of yet, there is no end in sight. The beleaguered Order is becoming more and more desperate to end the fighting before it can spread beyond England and into the rest of the wizarding world. Failure could mean an irrevocable turn for the worse. Pureblood supremacists have been trying for years to pass anti-creature and anti-Muggleborn legislature. They have yet to succeed, but a shift in power to support them would be catastrophic for thousands of magical beings across the UK.
The fate of the world hangs in the balance during a war that some do not even acknowledge. Some prefer to be willfully ignorant because they are not endangered. Some simply don't believe that Voldemort and his Death Eaters exist. But for those who do believe, the past decade has been a time of violence, chaos, and upheaval. The Death Eaters revel in it and do everything in their power to make the wizarding world even more unstable. The Order of the Phoenix has done everything in their power to protect innocent people but many see them as no better than the terrorists they fight.
If the war ever ends, will there be anyone left to pick up the pieces?
It was a mild Halloween night. The skies were clear, and the moon shone brightly. A crisp Autumn breeze trembled through the trees. In a quiet house, on a quiet street, a decade-long war was coming to a close. A Death Eater raid meant to kill Neville Longbottom, the boy named in the prophecy, ended instead with the imprisonment of several key Death Eaters, the capture of Albus Dumbledore, and the death of the Dark Lord.
The war was over, and the Ministry of Magic declared the victory as their own. The next few years were spent pursuing and prosecuting both Death Eaters and Order of the Phoenix members alike. The Death Eaters were imprisoned for violently carrying out their archaic beliefs, and the Order members, for being vigilantes acting without oversight or Ministry authorization. Peace and stability would reign again, Minister Bagnold promised, no matter what the cost.
The Azkaban breakout, orchestrated by a secret faction of disaffected purebloods, was the first attack on the Ministry’s promise . Many believed that it would be the first attack of many, and that the war, in actuality, had never truly ended .
Some fear this new reality, already damaged beyond repair from the devastation they witnessed, or in some cases, the devastation they caused themselves. Some close their eyes to it, sinking deeper into the comforting words churned out by the Ministry and the Daily Prophet. Others, still, welcome it, seeing this as their second chance at victory. This time, a victory that would be won on their own terms.
