The time has come when the delicate balance between character and nature will be tested. When those with faith will find the will to follow their path, or turn back and run. When men of noble means will be brought to their knees, and sanity will evade the grasp of even the most tried and true. When darkness falls into the hearts of men. When love fades, and trust shatters. Destruction lies ahead. The world searches for salvation.
The time is nigh, the night has fallen.
The nightmare has begun.
Welcome to your worst fear. The world is plagued by uncertainty. Death, murder, suicide, all lurk around the next corner, waiting with bated breath for their next victim. Hope has left the world behind, and flees in light of the despair that roams freely. Only the strongest have a chance of surviving, if they dare to stand up to the madness.
The year is 1999. The Chosen One has faded from public view, attending Erudio: Institute of Magic, located in Northern Ireland, in order to further his education. He is not known to bat an eye at the mayhem of the world surrounding him, and has refused the pleas of the populace, preferring to secrete himself in classrooms and books, enchantments and homework, while in the real world, no one is safe from the horror that roams.
The Minister sits in his office at night, unable to sleep, unable to live with himself. His power over society is fading. After two years of war and the inability to produce a single Death Eater for the cells of Azkaban, Rufus Scrimgeour resorts to desperate measures. The Aurors are given absolute power, and the right to kill any suspected Death Eater on sight. He waits, hoping for the slightest hint of deliverance. And where is Harry Potter? And why does he not end the madness?
In the past year, the world has lost so many important figures, so many names that meant so much to the people. No one is safe if Gawain Robards, Head of the Auror Office is found murdered inside the Ministry. No one is secure if Ministry Officials can be dragged off in the line of duty, and remain unheard of for months. No one knows what waits for them around the corner. Smiles have faded, laughter has died.
And still Harry Potter hides, in his school, studying for a position in a future that may not come. His friends surround him, and unknown to the world, he prepares, he waits, he prepares, his revenge is near. His dreams are haunted, but he will fight. Harry Potter waits for his chance to prove himself. But without his presence in the community, faith in him has dwindled. Without his guidance, the world searches for answers on their own, but all they can find is death.
Yet the nightmare continues, unchallenged, unchanged.
A never-ending cycle of hopelessness and loss. The faint echo of salvation coursing through it's core, yet unable to disrupt the darkness.
The darkest night.
The sweetest nightmare.
