I blame Snape actually. As much as I cared for him before, when he was a welcome respite from the daily round of my father's rants, he is obviously either not competent in his duties or more shackled than we should have liked to have thought - but the question of what might be doing the shackling is not one I am foolish enough to ask here. Suffice it to say that it was undoubtedly Dumbledore, and that I believe that Harry did the right thing for my interests by killing him.
I suppose it's possible that common cause can be made with someone, but the question is who?
Perhaps the one I see at the pubs.
And perhaps I have no wish to ally myself with a drunken fool.
But he might make an adequate tool for a time.
I have never questioned myself, only those around me. And now is not the time to start questioning myself, but I find that I must ask even harder questions now. Why is the Dark not doing anything other than dying? Does our Lord deserve our support?
Or is he merely a figurehead, of no value or interest other than how far he can take us all on his rise, and when he reaches that peak we'll turn on him like squabbling jackals?
Questions to be answered.
Before Bulstrode is leading us all. I hardly think that a woman's hands are the appropriate place for the tasks we face.
