Madam Bones appeared at exactly the time she specified. She was accompanied by an auror, Harry did not recognise. Harry and his group consisting of Max, Liz and Adam greeted Madam Bones.
"This is Auror Hammer. She will be assisting me this afternoon and act as a witness to the questioning of Harry." Madam Bones said.
"Nice to you." They replied.
"Here is your emancipation letter, Mr Potter." Madam Bones said as she handed Harry an official looking letter.
"Thank you, Madam Bones." Harry said before passing it to Adam to verify the authenticity of the certificate. Adam nodded his head to indicate it was genuine.
"Could you remove the trace from my wand?" Harry asked. Madam Bones nodded before casting a spell to remove the trace.
"Let us begin. What will happen today will be we will view a memory together then I will give you truth serum and ask you a few questions about the memories. Do you understand, Mr Potter?" Madam Bone asked.
"Yes." Harry replied. Harry, Madam Bones, Auror Hammer and Adam viewed the first batch of memories. This batch of memories were all about the abuse and neglect, Harry had suffered at the hands of the Dursleys. Once they came out, Madam Bones gave Harry the truth serum.
"Were the memories we have just witness true and unaltered?" Madam Bones asked.
"Yes. They were completely true." Harry replied.
"Why did you not go to the authorities earlier?"
"I have tried in the past but they did not believe me." Harry said even though he wanted to cry. Madam Bones then turned to Auror Hammer and said.
"Have a healer do a scan of Mr Potter to confirm his story. There is no urgency for it to be done so make it a time that is convenient for Mr Potter."
"Yes, Madam." Auror Hammer replied.
"Let us look at the things that happened in your first year at Hogwarts, Mr Potter." Madam Bones said after giving some time for Harry to recover from having to relive the worse memories of his time at the Dursleys.
This batch of memories was smaller than the previous batch so it was over fairly quickly. Madam Bones told Auror Hammer as soon as they finished the viewing.
"Please check to see whether a report was filed on the deaths of the unicorns. Also an application for two dangerous creatures."
She turned to Harry and ordered another dose of truth serum to be administered.
"Did you inform any of the professors of your suspicion that your broom was tampered with?" Madam Bones asked.
"No. Since I thought a professor was involved." Harry replied promptly.
"Who told you that your detention was to be in the Forbidden Forest?" Madam Bones asked as she wanted to know who endangered children under their care.
"Caretaker Argus Filch." Harry replied after some thought. Madam Bones told Hammer to note to question Filch about that request at some later stage.
"What were you thinking when your burnt Professor Quirrell?"
"All I was trying to do was get away from the Professor who was possessed by Voldemort." Harry replied.
"Do you mind providing me more memories of your potion classes? I heard from Susan that her class were bad but she was not hated like you." Harry was very eager to fulfil Madam Bones request which troubled her. After seeing what he had to put up with in potion class, she was surprised that another student had not complained on Harry's behalf. Madam Bones took a few notes and requested memories from second year.
"Why did not lodge a complaint against the warning of underage magic usage?" Madam Bones asked at the conclusion of the viewing of the memories.
"I did not know my rights." Harry replied.
"Were you questioned by the Aurors who investigated the incident?" Madam Bones asked.
"There was no investigation. Just a letter from Mafalda Hopkirk." Harry replied. Auror Hammer anticipating the Director's request had already made a note to speak to Hopkirk.
"In regards to the incident where the barrier at Platform nine and three quarters closed. Did you try to find an Auror or an adult witch or wizard before you decided to use the flying car?"
"Ron was the one who decided to use the flying car. I was just dragged along."
"Why did you not use the emergency knight bus to get to school?"
"I did not know about the knight bus at that time."
"Was there an investigation as to why a budger tried to kill you?" Director of MLE asked.
"Not that I was aware of." Harry replied.
"Did you tell anyone that you suspected Mister Malfoy's elf was response for the murder attempt?"
"Don't remember." Harry replied honestly.
"Does not matter I will find out myself." Madam Bones said, "Did you report Lockhart to any outside authority figure besides Dumbledore?"
"No." Harry said.
"What punishment did Draco Malfoy get for using the deadly spell during your duel?"
"Nothing to my knowledge." Harry replied.
"So he was not suspended or expelled." Madam Bones asked.
"That is correct." Harry replied.
"Lets move on to third year." Madam Bones suggests which Harry eager complies with. At the end of the viewing, Madam Bones made a lot of notes and everyone could tell that she was furious at Snape, Fudge and Dumbledore. She hate clearing up other people's messes and those three had created a massive one. Once she had calmed down, Harry asked.
"It is possible to reversal the kill on sight order for Buckbeak?"
"Sorry but even though from what I have seen. Buckbeak did nothing wrong. The Wizemgamot would not bother to reverse such a decision even if you could overcome the political influence that the Malfoys have." Madam Bones replied honestly. Harry looked disappointed by the response.
"Do you know how Buckbeak and Mr Black escape their respective executions?" Madam Bones asked suspiciously. Adam quickly interceded before Harry could answer.
"Does it matter since Mr Black was innocent."
"Not really." Madam Bones conceded.
"Do you have any other questions about Harry's third year or should we move onto Fourth year?" Adam asked.
"Let's move on." Madam Bones said.
As soon as they finished viewing the memories, Auror Hammer and Madam Bones were both furiously writing down names of people they saw in the graveyard.
"May we view the last memory again?' Madam Bones asked. Harry used his hands to indicate to her to proceed.
"Thank you." Madam Bones said before she drive back into the pensieve accompanied by Auror Hammer. When Madam Bones and Auror Hammer came back out, they were fanatically writing down more names. They compared lists and added names that were missing from each other lists.
"Let us see the Dementor attack and I will try to get the charges dropped." Madam Bones said.
"Maybe you should not get the charges dropped instead use it to our advantage." Adam said.
"What do you mean?" Madam Bones said in confusion.
"This is a copy of the Potters' Will from Gringotts." Adam said as he handed over the document. Madam Bones accepted but did not understand its relevance until she started reading it then she became pissed.
"Let us call it a day. You gave me a lot of work to do. Not that I blame you. Why don't we meet in a few days?" Madam Bones said.
"That sounds like a plan." Adam replied on behalf of Harry.
"I will floo you." Madam Bones said as she and Auror Hammer left.
As soon as the meeting was over, Liz immediately went back to the book she was reading. The book was about magical theory. She was currently fascinated by magic. It did not take her long to work out that most of the magic Harry used was drawn from his surroundings. His magical core was really the mental muscle used to draw the energy from their surroundings.
The aliens powers worked differently. They generated the energy internally. That was why Max felt so bad after healing someone because he did not know how to release the negative energy he had taken from the sick person. Liz was focused on finding a way to release that energy in a non harmful way. She suspects that crystals would be the key since she already knew it could hold energy.
So far she was experiencing trouble getting information about crystals. British Magical Society was focused on stones for things like wards rather than crystals. Harry had brought her a lot more books to help her which she felt guilty about. The only success she had so far was making pendants that creates a notice me not ward around them. These pendants would have very useful when they went back to avoiding the authorities. This success lead to Isabelle assisting Liz in her research.
For the next 2 days, Harry taught the pod squad minus Liz and Isabelle what he knew about magic focusing on defensive spells. He would illustrate the wand movements and how he drew the magic to get the job done. Max was the fastest to learn these spells and as he had seen them when he healed Harry. Adam would look up from his work and be amazed at the wandless magic that the group displayed.
On Monday morning Madam Bones flooed Adam requesting a meeting that afternoon. Adam agreed after consulting Harry and Max. A little before the meeting, Harry and Max decided to check on the staffs. They found a closed sign on the door of Olivanders. Harry noticed movement in the room so he knocked. Mr Ollivander look through one of the windows to check who was knocking as soon as he saw Harry and Max. He unlocked the door and dragged them into the store looking suspiciously outside once they were in the store.
The store looked as though it was being packed away and moved as all the unsold wands were been placed in cardboard boxes.
"Sorry for being so rude." Mr Ollivander said.
"Its okay." Harry said. "Do you mind telling us why you are so afraid?"
"After you told me that the golden cage. I knew you were telling the truth since I doubt anyone else would know about what happens when spells from brother wands collide. Since I do not want a personal interview with you know who. I thought it would be better for me to leave town. Your staffs are the last that I will be making in Britain and I won't tell you where I will be going for security reasons." Mr Ollivander replied.
"So what should I do to overcome the brother wands problem?" Harry asked.
"Since I am going away. I could make you staff as well which no one would know about." Mr Ollivander offered.
"Thank you. How much will it cost me for the staff?" Harry asked.
"The same as the others." Mr Ollivander replied. Harry gave Mr Ollivander 1000 galleons since he knew he could afford it since the law suits were many times that amount.
"Keep the change to help you with your relocation." Harry said.
"Thank you, Mr Potter. I might forget to lodge the forms for your friends' staffs." Mr Ollivander said.
"Speaking of Staffs. Do you think you can finish two of the staffs by the end of the week?" Harry asked.
"I believe I can have two ready by tomorrow and another two ready by the end of the week. The rest should be done by end of next week." Mr Ollivander replied.
"I thought it would take longer." Harry said.
"I have more time to work on the staffs since I have closed my shop." Mr Ollivander replied as he began identifying out the materials for Harry's staff. Once he was done, Mr Ollivander lead them to the back door.
"Tomorrow come to this door and knock on it twice. Bring Mrs Evan with you so we can test the staffs." Mr Ollivander said.
"See you tomorrow, Mr Ollivander." Harry said. Max just inclined his head.
They made it back to Adam's office with 5 minutes to spare. Madam Bones arrived in a less kept state then what was normal for her. Auror Hammer was in a worse condition. It was obvious that the two of them had put in a lot of hours dealing with the various issues that Harry had identified. Greetings were exchanged but were low key.
"I have verified what you told me. But I severely doubt anything will come of it. The Wizemgamot will never convict all those well connected people." Madam Bones admitted. "If you select a few issues I can try to push something through?"
"Do not be so quick to give up." Adam interceded. "You should be arresting all those people who claimed to be under imperio curse especially the Wizemgamot members."
"If I arrest all those members, then their won't be enough members left to reach a quorum on anything. Nothing will happen as the Wizemgamot will not be able to decide anything." Madam Bones explained.
"Not if you enforce the 17th century French asylum legislation." Adam said with a cheeky grin.
"I am not familiar with that piece of legislation." Madam Bones admitted.
"In the sixteen hundreds, French nobles were being slaughtered by the general population. This included many of the magical nobles. Some of the ones that did survive flee to here illegally. The Wizemgamot at that time, wanted to kick them out to avoid a similar problem occurring here. No other country were willing to take them due to their arrogance so they pleaded with the Minister of Magic to let them stay.
After much discussion it was decided that they would be allowed to stay and would be protected from French revolutionaries in return they swore a magical oath that their families would not get involved in British politics for 500 years. This oath was swore on their magic and their fortune." Adam explained.
"So how does that help us?" Madam Bones asked impatiently.
"One of the sections of the legislation was in case of a revolution lead by the French nobles. The section allows a 10 member session of the Wizemgamot to enforce the oath and to replace members who aligned with the French." Adam said.
"Do you have a copy of the legislation and are you sure it is still active?" Madam Bones asked.
"Here a copy of the legislation and I have checked the charter which lists all active laws. It was their on Friday when I found the legislation." Adam said as he handed over the requested document. Madam Bones read it about 5 times before she smiled.
"You should double whatever you paying him. He is a genius." Madam Bones said as she handed the document over to Auror Hammer.
"What about the members of the Wizarding public that just happens to have French blood and do not support you know who?" Auror Hammer asked.
"They will not get effected. Only the immediate families that the 10 member panel believes is involved with the revolution will have their fortune seized and their magic removed." Adam replied. "For example, Lucius Malfoy has breached his ancestor's oath and would be found guilty of breaching his family's vows. His family magic will leave him, his son and his wife due to her marriage bonds. On top of that, he loses everything to the ministry. The legislation says that the money is suppose to be used to replace the damage they caused but it could be used to help finance the aurors."
Everyone started grinning. Harry imagined Draco Malfoy sitting in his family mansion then all of a sudden getting kicked out of the house by the wards butt naked with no magic. Quickly followed by his mother.
"We need to keep our plans a secret because if they find out then the legislation would be immediately scrapped." Madam Bones said.
"My thought was that your department would arrest Wizengamot members who had been previously cleared of supporting You know who as they arrived for Harry's trial." Adam said.
"I like it. We might be able to catch a few extra people since some of the spectators could be supporters of the Dark Lord who want to witness Mr Potter's downfall." Madam Bones said.
"I think you should get all the aurors to reaffirm their oath to you." Auror Hammer suggested.
"That is a good idea. I can tell Minister Fudge that I want to gather all the Aurors in case there is a backlash due to Mr Potter's trial. We can do the affirmation then." Madam Bones said.
"Do you want our help?" Max offered.
"Do you mind?" Madam Bones asked. "I can deputise you for the duration of the emergency. The only reason why I am taking this drastic step is that the fewer people in the know the better."
Auror Hammer went back to the Ministry to gather floor plans. When she got back, they started planning the revolution.
A/N Thank you for your reviews. Sorry for the delay, I only work on this story when I get stuck on my main story. If you do not like it then don't read it. I hate flames and it will stop my writing in its tracks.
