When the news breaks he drinks a calming draught and goes to the Ministry and is mildly distraught along with everyone else and gets his grandfather alone and explains, piece by piece, what must have happened. " - so we could declare ourselves at war with Elio's organization but we still don't know how the spell works and she'd probably deploy it again if things escalated to an open war, I'd much sooner just assassinate her and then explain ourselves after the fact."

His grandfather did not take a calming draught, and is openly weeping. He takes a minute to consider. "I want her in Azkaban."

"Instead of dead?"

"She might know - they might not be gone -"

"They might not be gone," Fredrick says with potion-aided mild hope. "But why would she tell us? For a lighter sentence? We can't offer her a lighter sentence, thousands of people are already dead."

"Who?"

"The Muggles who were in the way of the sudden tampering in France."

His grandfather makes a face at him as if to say 'you think the fate of French Muggles will move me when my favorite son and five of my grandsons and all of my great-grandchildren are dead?'

Fredrick sighs. "If it's feasible to take her alive we can question her and then figure out where to go from there."

"You mean to duel her?"

"No. I'd lose. I mean to track her down via Elio's organization while they're off-balance and on the run and I mean to kill her unless I have an opening to take her alive. Father agrees with me here."

 "Very well. What do you need?"

 

 

Felix is very emphatic about the invisibility cloak being well-secured and about the backup wand. Felix points him to Lisbon. He walks the streets and conveniently no one bumps into him and Felix thinks he should turn left here -

It is an Italian witch and a bottle of wine!

Felix thinks he should conjure two glasses and say hi. He can't really think of anything he feels less like doing at the moment, but -

 

- Timothy wouldn't find this difficult -

 

"Hi," he says, and makes the goblets pretty and shimmer-y and hands one to her and touches the rim of his to hers. "Do you know Elio?"

...she pours herself a glass and drinks it all, then fills both. "Do I ever," she mutters.

Permalink

"Mmmm."

Permalink

"He seems so nice! But it's all an act, he doesn't really like anybody - turned me down flat -"

Permalink

"All an act? What a jerk."

Permalink

"Mm-hm." She tops off her glass. "And now he's off to Brazil with some nobody of no family - sure, he says he's not seeing her -"

Permalink

"Well, she has him Imperiused."

Permalink

"What? That vile little - wait, how do you know -"

Permalink

"Tried to do it to someone else I know, and then I put it together - why would someone like him be with an ugly boring nobody like her - when there are women like you around -"

Permalink

"I knew something was up with that! I - have - no idea how to - somebody's got to save him -"

Permalink

"Yeah. Do you know where in Brazil they went?"

Permalink

"Oh, off to see the Queen about something, she's very close to the Queen."

Permalink

"And do you know much about how they protect themselves - so we can make sure Elio isn't forced to fight to protect her and then killed in the crossfire -"

Permalink

"She lets him alone when he's meeting new people - she's quick on the draw, I've seen her pull that fancy dueling wand of hers in a blink -"

Permalink

"How do they source their food, does she eat with the Queen, do you know where they sleep -"

Permalink

"She eats with the Queen, so does he, I think every meal. I don't know their lodging situation in Brazil but here they have separate rooms, she stays with that Turkish witch - went with them - might be Imperiused too -"

Permalink

Nod. "When I get Elio out I'll tell him that you knew something was up and were a tremendous help."

Permalink

"Thank you so much - I'm Erica -"

Permalink

"Fredrick."

Permalink

She swallows the last of the wine. "You're going to save him?"

Permalink

"Yep."

Permalink

Sniff. "Thank you."

Permalink

Pat pat. "Of course." 

 

Timothy would like her, Timothy would mean all of this, sincerely and intensely and -

 

 

He leaves. He arranges to visit Brazil.

Brazil is all the way over there. Wizards can get there faster.
