PAST GRANGER: Dawlish, how did Carrow come to be chained like this?
Dawlish is crawling out from under Harry. Ze looks irritated.
DAWLISH: Before Potter attacked, she was acting mental. She tr–
PAST GRANGER: And you chained her here?
DAWLISH: Yes, she–
PAST GRANGER: You are aware of the protocol for short-term restraint?
DAWLISH: Yes, but–
PAST GRANGER: Thank you, Dawlish.
DAWLISH: She tried to stab me with a muggle pen!
The narrative frame of Granger describing the events of Harry's capture closes. We are back in the present DMLE meeting. In addition to the people we've seen before, Cornelius Fudge is present; ze sits at the opposite end of the table from Amelia Bones.
GRANGER: I saw no Muggle pen in the residence, but perhaps he mistook something else for a pen; his ignorance of Muggle culture is quite plain. What is not uncertain is the extent of the injury to Carrow's wrist; the evidence I have gathered suggests that she was left in that position for nearly two hours while Dawlish stood guard. The threat of Luna Lovegood is the primary subject I will bring before this meeting, but we must reserve some time to discuss the conduct of John Dawli–
CROUCH: "Conduct"? He was injured in battle with Harry Potter! He deserves the Order of Merlin, First Class, no question!
GRANGER: And before that happened, he broke protocol to injure an innocent person.
THICKNESSE: You're worried about a little protocol from someone who just caught Harry Potter?
GRANGER: There is no higher duty of this office than to ensure the safety of those we serve!
CROUCH: You have no right to lecture us about duty!
BONES: I do not see eye to eye with Granger on this matter, but I am curious, Mr Crouch, why the Head of the Auror Office would not have the authority to speak on Auror Office principles!
FUDGE: I hardly think Barty Crouch is the one in the wrong here! Granger is– she's only–
THICKNESSE: Ah, Minister, careful–
The argument rages on, but no more of the dialogue is legible to the reader; instead, strings of non-word symbols, colored like the characters' normal dialogue, spiral around the table. At the center of the spiral, Shacklebolt says "If we could all calm down for a–", but it seems that everyone ignores zem. The next thing the reader sees is Granger coming out a door, where ze is greeted by Tonks.
TONKS: Wotcher, Granger, the Aurors are waitin– wow, you look mad knackered!
Indeed, Granger looks very tired.
GRANGER: I always look like this after department meetings.
TONKS: Well, we're all waiting in the Strategy Room for you to speak. I think some of us are impatient– you said you'd be quick.
This page was an exercise in deciding which information was the most important. There's a huge amount of backstory – I know the details of the injury, I know the attitudes of all people in the room, I know the defenses Granger would make to a variety of counterarguments, I even know exactly what happened between Alecto and Dawlish (though Granger doesn't) – but my sense of the narrative flow says I shouldn't spend too much time in this argument, so I have to cut a lot of that out.
Feel free to ask about anything in the comments, though!
