I really hope it’s okay. thank you to L and B for all their help, and to delphi for great forbearance. Title from "If They Come In The Night" by Marge Piercy.

I used a mix of book, film and Pottermore canon for this fic, most especially for certain revelations re: Professor McGonagall. Also, I admit this (NSFW!) bit of art might have inspired me just a tad for one scene.... Happy Beholding, shadowycat!

Together they attempt to solve the case that has haunted Moody for a decade. Together they face immense dangers as they land on the Unplottable Isle of Drear.

I declare writer's privilege to hereby create a new character whom you shall meet anon. Happy Beholding, shadowycat!
