Challenge #773: "Snape and The Sacred Twenty-Eight"

Challenge 773: Snape and The Sacred Twenty-Eight

This list of the purest bloodline families has surely caused Snape some angst. One imagines he would want the Prince name included. Or perhaps not. However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and The Sacred Twenty-Eight.

“Cuthbert?” Severus asked at last.

“Good heavens.” Binns floated into a seating position behind what had been his desk. His face was a much paler gray than usual. “I haven't reacted that badly since the Abdication Crisis.”

“There's no need to apologize.” Severus drew up one of the side chairs and opened his girdle book. “Having the Snatchers infiltrate a harmless social club is not an everyday occurrence.”

“Unfortunately, there is nothing I can personally do, being tied to the school, and - “

Severus wrote down a series of equations. “Perhaps there's a solution.”

Binns closed his eyes, and it was something of a shock to realize that he was fighting back tears. Severus did not speak – he had never imagined that the ghost could feel so deeply about anything, let alone a group he professed to find ridiculous – but flipped to the end of Hogwarts: A History to refresh his memory of the incident when a Snatcher had nearly taken Penelope Clearwater's cousin.

“This cannot continue,” Binns said at last. “The Assembly might not be what it once was, but kidnappers of the young have no place in its revels.”

“And then go underground when their alleged services no longer are welcome.” Severus pointed at a man in elaborate Tudor-style robes with deep maroon sleeves slashed to show the snowy whiteness of his shirt sleeves. “I've seen him before, and not dressed like this. He came for one of the Ravenclaws during the year the Dark Lord controlled the school, and I risked my cover story to stop him.”

Binns aimed his spectral wand at the latest supplement to Hogwarts: A History, frowning. “I remember that foul incident. You believe these people are using the Assembly to hide?”

“Yes.”

Binns nodded as Severus explained how the Snatchers had been deputized to “apprehend undesirables to conserve Ministry resources,” the red ribbons on their sleeves, and how they had terrorized the Wizarding World for the better part of a year, with no oversight or right of redress. “No Muggleborn or Muggle was safe. It was not pleasant to watch.”

“I daresay,” said Binns. He thought for a moment. “Of course this was not the first time such a group wreaked havoc upon our world, of course. The Vehm, the Star Chamber – vigilantes spring eternal whether we will or no.”

“It may be worse than simple bad taste,.” Severus pointed to a flickering image of a woman in a tightly fitted dress. Her braided hair was worked with Everlasting Ivy, and long red streamers cascaded from the sleeves of her gown. “Were you familiar with the Snatchers?”

“Snatchers?” Binns peered at the woman through his spectacles. “Ah yes, young Mr. Riddle's vigilantes. I heard of them from a colleague. Why do you ask?”

Severus decided not to ask how a ghost could or did have “colleagues.” “Do you have a moment? This will take a while - “

Challenge 772: Snape and The Snatchers

This group came to prominence during Voldemort's second rise when they scoured England for Muggleborns and 'blood traitors'. Would Snape have anything to do with this bunch? However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and The Snatchers.

thus begins the long return

First post, just a:
- quick howdy to all who still follow me,
- a quick we're both doing fairly well but aren't anywhere near where we'd like to be in getting things sorted in our lives atm (but who is?)
and a quick note to say I'll be seeing you all here a bit more as Tumblr may boot me out and I need a soft place to land. *oof*

That said, I bring you some female-presenting nipples (Tumblr's ridiculous example of what they think is wrong about posts which means they either missed the alt-right Nazi posts starting to proliferate the last couple years or they like them but whatevs)

“Those robes are not accurate,” said Binns, watching the image of the Honored Chairs processing to the head of the banqueting table in regalia that seemed to have been stolen from a third-rate panto. “Neither is the food. The Founders did not eat spoiled meats, they used preservation charms.”

“The cooking was amateurish, to put it mildly.” said Severus. He winced as a candied violet pudding served itself. “Fortunately I brought a digestive potion .”

“They've deteriorated greatly.” Binns winced as a house elf played an untuned krumhorn. “This would not have been tolerated in my day.”

It was clever enough that Severus actually devoted a pleasant hour to researching which House Binns had belonged to (the Hat had spent five whole minutes debating between Ravenclaw or Slytherin before settling on the former). They discussed the issue again before Severus donned his finest robes and apparated to their headquarters in Easton-sub-Equus for a reception.

He did not go empty handed. In addition to his usual girdle book, he wore a pin of curious design that would record his every interaction so he would be able to report back to Binns. It would be a most entertaining evening.

Severus stared at Binns, who floated calmly by the fireplace. “You just said they were poseurs.”

“I have an ulterior motive” said Binns. He reached for a statuette on the mantel, then remembered that he could not touch material objects. “You see, I was a member of the revived Assembly for many years. They have denied my membership ever since I became – discorporate, even though I still have a mailing address and could host their gatherings here at the school. If you join and report back - ”

“You might be avenged for the slight?”

“Indeed.

“Ah, yes. The Assembly.” Binns actually chuckled. “Pretending to an antiquity they have not as yet attained.”

“How so?” One of the Princes had been a member of the Medieval Assembly, or so Severus' mother had claimed. “They've existed for centuries.”

“Barely a century and a half,” Binns rumbled. “The current version is a Victorian-era revival of an entity that had dissolved during the Muggle Age of Enlightenment. The founders adopted the trappings of an ancient foundation, nothing more.”

“So I should decline the invitation?” said Severus.

“To the contrary. You most definitely should accept.”

The owl was even more impressive than the one that had carried the invitation to the Extraordinary Potioneers' annual brawl. A huge, venerable eagle owl wearing a tiny surcoat of antique design, it waited gravely for Severus to unfasten its jesses and extract the hand-addressed envelope from a tooled morocco case before accepting its payment and flapping away.

Severus broke the seal depicting the Fawley arms and read the elegant script inviting him to the upcoming meeting of the Medieval Assembly of European Wizards. He considered it, carefully replaced the invitation in the envelope, and went directly to Professor Binns.
