I had a plan. Return to the Dursleys while Thomas and my legal team worked the probate and family court angles. Keep the Dursley situation out of the papers. Simple. Easy. Then Cornelius Fudge spied an opportunity to publicly humiliate Dumbledore. My plan fell apart.
Now, I’m caught between my cousin, an occassional ally, and the enemy who altered my mind on such a fundamental level I may never completely recover. I need time to heal--the ministry labeled acromantulas known wizard killers for a good reason--put my head back together, and rediscover the boy Dumbledore tried to replace with the boy-who-lived, but time is running out. Neutrality may no longer be an option.
On Hiatus: Beginning April 28, this story will be on a 3-4 month hiatus. I love working on it and interacting with everyone here and pinky swear I'll return (with bells on). I'm self-employed and recently took on several major projects that will be consuming all of my work time, my free time, my walking the dog time, basically any spare minute I would've once devoted to things I enjoy but don't get paid to do. I hope ya'll have a wonderful summer. See you on the other side.
