Gifts for mrs_helenesnape
When the last of the Lestranges dies in Azkaban, Hermione Granger and her colleagues in the Department of Mysteries have thirty-one days to assess and catalogue the entire contents of the family vault before it's passed on to Narcissa Malfoy. As if planning a wedding wasn't enough stress by itself. Artefact inspired by the work of Clive Barker. The word karakuri means a "mechanical device to tease, trick, or take a person by surprise". It implies hidden magic, or an element of mystery.
