Who: Severus & Harry
When: 6 May
Where: Headmaster's Office, then who knows?
What: A discussion about the aftermath
Severus leaned back in his chair and pushed away the paperwork he'd been going through. The records from the staff prior to the school closing down were surprisingly meticulous but not terribly edifying. Probably not much of a surprise but frustrating nonetheless. He tapped the cover of his journal and considered opening it to see what sort of debacle had occurred now but after the last couple of days, he probably didn't want to know.
He looked up at the portraits instead. The frame that apparently held his portrait had been empty ever since he'd stepped into the room. He didn't know whether his portrait self had somewhere else to go or whether he'd disappeared with his appearance. The latter didn't seem likely since Albus still wandered into his portrait. Not that any of the former Headmasters and Headmistresses had been able to offer any information about the virus, whether because they didn't know or because the castle was preventing them was up for debate.
He got up from behind the Headmaster's desk and began to pace the room, his thoughts turning back to the previous days' ructions. In all honesty, Potter's sudden abdication hadn't surprised him. Potter was about as well suited to being Minister as Severus himself had been to being a teacher. Between Nott's need to poke at people without considering the potential consequences and Potter's temper, that exchange between them went about as well as he'd expected. Nor was he surprised that where Potter lead, Weasley and Granger followed. It did leave something of a power vacuum at the top though. A concern given some of the people here.
He shook his head and decided he needed a walk and perhaps some tea. He swept out of the room and down the stairs, not even pausing as the gargoyle leapt aside for him with alacrity.
