the world is weary.
our battle is lost.
and we have never known peace.
we can no longer count our
(endless numbered days)
the year is 1977
and nothing is as it seems.
"what do you mean he's dead?"
"that's exactly what i mean. he lost, he's gone. he's dead."
"he's moved on sofia. they say he'll take the city in three days."
"three days? he'll take the city? the ministry too?"
"then we're all deadmen."
The day Albus Dumbledore arrived in Bulgaria was supposed to be the day he saved the world. The Dark Wizard Grindlewald had been terrorizing Wizarding Europe for years, and no one knew why it had taken Dumbledore so long to address the situation. But Dumbledore knew, and so did Grindlewald. When the great Wizard finally went, he knew that he must win, for no one knew the dark heart of Gellert Grindlewald as he did. He had to win or else the future he had imagined, the one he now dreaded, would engulf the world. But Dumbledore didn't win, and his death was the killing blow to Wizarding society as Grindlewald seized power and left a trail of the dead in his wake; Albus Dumbledore included.
"i don't care what the minister says. why would grindlewald kill us?"
"because he wants no opposition, you know that."
"but we're purebloods. he needs us."
"only if we follow him, and some of the old families just won't."
"well, i will, and so will my family."
"then he'll spare you."
"how did he conquer france so quickly? in one year?"
"i told you it would be swift, he is unstoppable."
"well, i don't know if that's such a bad thing. the muggles are getting a bit tiresome."
"in a few years, muggles will be a thing of the past."
No one had ever seen such a swift and terrifying rise to power. But in two years Grindlewald had conquered all of continental Europe and in the Spring of 1947 he reached the shores of England. Those who were foolish enough to stand against him had been warned; they would die quickly. But some still did. Some brave souls who could see the terror that came with the Dark Wizard. The Ministry welcomed him with open arms, and soon began doing his bidding. The Statute Of Secrecy was repealed and an all out war was waged on the Muggle world. They didn't stand a chance. Marriage laws were enacted, social castes implemented and the highest spots in society given to the families who followed Grindlewald and to the purest blood. muggle would no longer be tolerated. Creatures of tainted blood would no longer be tolerated. Blood mingling would no longer be tolerated. Muggleborns and squibs would be enslaved or murdered, and all lower castes would waste away in ghettos where they belonged. This is how the world would mend itself, how the powerful would survive.
"where are they taking us?"
"i don't know, i can't see anything!"
"it's the memento mori, i swear. they'll kill us all."
"but we're not muggles! we're witches and wizards!"
"not to them we're not. to them we're creatures."
"they killed my husband."
"they killed my children."
"they burned my home."
"they took my money."
"i can never see my son again."
"my daughter tried to fight them, and she disappeared."
"he's taken over the ministry, no one can help us now."
"how many of us are there? can we resist?"
the horror stories would continue, for twenty years.
But not everyone suffered. The Purebloods, the 3/4 bloods and even the Halfbloods found new places in this new society. They fell into their ranks and did not question. That is how they survived. Out of this new society came a young, promising Wizard by the name of Tom Riddle. The world, now that all the dirt had been cleansed, was at his feet. Surely Grindlewald would take him into the fold? Surely he would rise in the ranks and become his heir? Tom Riddle had no doubts about this. But the Ministry did. He was a halfblood, filled with muggle blood in his dirty veins. No, the most he could do was file papers in some obscure department. They had no use for him. For Tom Riddle, this was the ultimate humiliation. In the years following he swore revenge on those who had shamed him and by 1960 he had developed his own personal army against Grindlewald. He named The Death Eaters, and decided that he, not Grindlewald, was the best fit to control the Wizarding World. He would not allow Muggleborns the leniency the old man had. He would kill everyone and recreate his own empire, a perfect world. He could crush the Grindlewaldian rule quickly and he would have all the power he needed. There was only one problem: Aberforth Dumbledore.
"you got a grudge against him don't ya?"
"yes alastor, i do. he killed my sister, and now he's killed my brother."
"that was ten odd years ago. shouldn't you-"
"do you see what he has done? the pain he has caused?"
"course i do! why else would i have come here, and risked my own neck?"
"because mr. moody, you are a good man and you are an honorable man."
"yes, you are. do i have your allegiance?"
"what am i allegiancein to?"
"the order. the order of the phoenix."
Named for his brother, Aberforth Dumbledore created the Order as a fortress of hope for the world. Since their creation in 1955, they have grown to become a threat to the Death Eaters and even to the Memento Mori; Grindlewald’s own private army. They must live a secret life, and always fear for their lives. Many will die, many have died. Aberforth Dumbledore is one of the many. But even as tragedy comes and 1977 nears and end, they have a resolve to fight and to win. At Hogwarts this same fire has been flamed among some of the students, and they hope for a day of peace and freedom and equality. But the battle will not be won easily, the fight is deadly and the future looks bleak. Even so, the battle rages on and all we are left with is ENDLESS NUMBERED DAYS
