[ooc: A visit from an old friend.]

[This thread is still open for visits; feel free to tag in if your character can get to St. Mungo's, or we can work out a thing where 'Dora brings them in another thread too.]

OOM: Tom goes to Ollivander's

Let's say this happened over the weekend.

OOM, Millitimed to earlier this week: Tom receives much needed visits from a member of the family, a friend, and a mentor.

He's feeling much better now.

Night begins to fall as Hogwarts castle prepares for war. The ground forces amass before the great doors, now barred against the onslaught. The Ministry Air Corps takes to the skies. Bernard and his bombing crew move into position. In the Room of Requirement, preparations are made for a long, hopefully uneventful, wait. And in the passageway between Honeydukes and Hogwarts, something wicked this way comes.

The battle in full swing, the ground defenders are forced to take the fighting inside the castle. The air battle rages, and there are great losses. The defenders of the Room of Requirement take action.

In the passageway, a badly wounded Albus directs Harry, Hermione, and Ron to the Chamber of Secrets, where Voldemort has set up a base camp of sorts. From the House of Arch, a rescue party departs. After some difficulties, they find the Chamber as well.

A contract is broken. There is an explosion, the likes of which Hogwarts has never seen.

And, finally, a prophecy is fulfilled.

Tom and Door are sitting at an out of the way table. Their mood is slightly somber - Tom's still shaken from the events of Sunday in the world in which he grew up.

But life goes on, and there are friends here to see. Tom hails a waitrat, and a scotch and a bourbon on the rocks are forthcoming, along with an order of fish and chips. It's a night for comfort food.

OOC: Plot-locked tonight, please

[OOM: Not knowing is hard. Bill and Fleur try to find some answers.]

[OOC: Penelope gets some bad news. Call it incontrovertible proof of the interconnectedness of mankind.]

The door opens to reveal a relieved-looking young lady with a very large bag and a small brown owl perched on her arm.

If you watch closely, you'll see that she's not so relieved; there are not-quite-dried tear stains on her cheeks, and she's walking more carefully than she needs to.

Penelope quickly finds a chair, curls up in it, prays that Telemachus doesn't decide to eat one of the waitrats-- and thinks that maybe Milliways wasn't such a brilliant idea tonight.

It may be safer than home; but you can't cry.
