"The locals? Yeah, but - doing it well will be a substantial difference."

It's nearly bloodless. 

 

They do a country at a time; they have planes fly in low and in formation and drop letters in the local language, explaining. 

In Portugal the planes go down. The locals shouldn't have had weapons that could do that. Greys who follow up on foot die; it's not apparent of what.

Anitam calls in an airstrike on the palace. It is neat and has no casualties outside it and there are no further problems.

(In Paris Elio feels suddenly unwell and leaves without explanation.)

Which is rather the last thing on his mind. He Portkeys home holding the French version of the explanatory note.

"You look like you've seen a ghost. Who had an explanation."

He sputters for a few seconds, gives up, hands her the note - "do you read French -"

"Someone else conquered France. An hour ago. They - they flew in with very fast high-precision metal things which I think were just to intimidate us and drop the notes, which say that -" takes the note back - "there's a new government, its agents have colored hair and will be installing infrastructure and landing fields for their devices and distributing payment to laborers who show up to assist with this and to advisors who show up to cooperate with the transfer of the work of governance to their control, they will execute people for acts of violence against their operatives, distinguishable with the colored hair, they have advanced medicine and technology and expect that they can greatly increase lifespans, decrease disease, and make our cities safe, stable and peaceful. Local laws should be understood to remain in force."

"...colored hair."

"No idea whether that's just so they'll be visually distinct or what. Didn't see any - seemed unwise to be hopping around, they've got to be wizards or have wizards assisting -"

"Who are they? Like - where are they from -"

"Says 'Anitam'. I've never heard of it. Perhaps there will be future clarifying notes falling from the sky."

Permalink

"I've never heard of it either. Is that all it says, not - where they're going to install things, or what's next, or why -"

"It has where they're adding things" he reads her sites in France. "Airport, railroads, medical clinics, spaceport, administrative center, temporary housing where the population of these specific neighborhoods of Paris can be relocated while they replace infrastructure - ...doesn't say why."

Permalink

"Replace it? - does temporary housing sound to you like something that might mean 'show up and get shot' -"

Permalink

"A little. - more than a little."

"Is it the same people causing the weird news from everywhere -"

Permalink

"- what other weird news have you been hearing -"

"Karen's family has a portrait who can travel to one in South Africa, Nnenne Flooed to say she was asked to send the children home from school early by the Ministry who'd heard from Canada - that's three continents -"

Permalink

 

"Well. Maybe we should expect raining letters pretty soon - how -"

Permalink

"I don't know!"

Permalink

"It doesn't make any sense to conquer the Muggle world and leave us out of it - most of their interference is going to be wizards -"

Permalink

"Both Canada and South Africa it was just the flying silver things and the dropped leaflets. No contact to the Ministries at all."

Permalink

" - could they not know - they can't be Muggles but -"

Permalink

"- why exactly can't they be -"
