Characters: Lucius and Bellatrix mainly, but Avery and Crabbe welcome.
Inferi. Day by day, this was beginning to sound more like a plan. The difficulty I was having was more in the practicalities of this. Raising the dead didn't seem like a one man job. No doubt The Lord could have done it, but I was not him. I may have been many things, most admirable, but I was not him. This was undoubtedly a several wizard job. Or, Me, Bellatrix and Avery, perhaps her husband, who knew? Oh, and Crabbe to dig us up some bodies.
This was also the sort of thing which took a lot of diligent research. The sort of research that did make me wish they made house elves with brains. I thought we would have to practice, start small, so acquired myself some of the more simple creatures to resurrect; a hamster, a rat and a convienently dead house elf. Bellatrix better not complain, or I'd hex her. What was her problem? Oh, she was Bellatrix Lestrange. I couldn't deny she was a good witch, though, even if I wouldn't admit I wanted her help. I was just including everyone so the blame was spread, that's what. I waited for her to get here in the very, very empty study, wondering how we were going to go about this.
