    Oh My Gordic, Tim, I had read about your character but had never visited this thread. Now I've read all the posts (yes, all of them), and Dieter is such a great character that I want to slap him. Or exorcise him. Anyways, I couldn't resist stopping by to ask a few questions, because he is addicting, kind of like trying to convince strong conservatives to accept gay marriage, or Laura Mallory to read Harry Potter. It's basically the equivalent of beating your head against a brick wall, but you can't keep from trying!


    Guten Tag, Dieter! I am here to question you...

    Can a Slav or a Jew or any other Untermensch be a good person?

    Well, they're not even fully human, so no.
    In that case, could they be good sub humans? I mean, there are some pretty nice cats and dogs out there… (I feel so weird asking this.)

    So… you say that you can't prove the existence of a subhuman soul. I can accept that. But that means that you can't prove that you have a soul either. Which means it is impossible to compare a subhuman and Aryan soul, because you can't even prove souls exist. In which case you can only compare their physical traits. So what this means is that basically Aryans are better merely because they are blonder, have bluer eyes, and are apparently stronger… is that the case?

    You also say that Untermenschen have animal-like minds, and "lack the ability to feel or comprehend what it is to be fully human". In that case, wouldn't it be wrong to hate them for not being human, and for actions that, being animals, they aren't fully responsible for? It would be kind of like hitting a kitten because it instinctively scratched you…

    Here's a little sample of my background: I'm part Spanish, Italian, Basque, American Indian, and yes, part Aryan. Would you trust me?

    I've lived in Brazil, the US, and France. Does this change your answer at all, or does only my race matter?

    Does it bother you sometimes that you clearly have less knowledge of the Wizarding World than pure or half-blood wizards? I mean, you didn't know what a Boggart or Patronus was…

    Since the Jewish religion is obviously a race to you, what would you think of an Aryan who, for whatever reason, decided to renounce Christianity and join the Jewish religion?

    What was your favorite book when you were younger?


    That's all for now...I'll probably come back for more, you little Nazi - sorry, National Socialist.

    Dieter, my son! I wish to commune with you! Answer my questions, or suffer the consequences, you godless little Nazi man, you!
    Okay, fine! I'll answer your questions, Zoheb or Drubane or whatever your name is!

    A) Just how strong is your devotion to Hiler now that you've found Grindelwald? Which one do you respect more?

    My respect and loyalty lies with the Führer, obviously. Remember, I've only been at Durmstrang since September, whereas I've lived in the Muggle world all my life. And it is Adolf Hitler that delivered the Reich from its suffering, and made us feel proud again. I suppose wizards would say the same thing about Grindelwald, but I am first and foremost a Muggle-born wizard.

    B) Do you like buckets?

    What does this question have to do with ANYTHING?

    C) Did you ever read any fantasy books in the past? What is your opinion of the whole fantasy genre? Do you find it laughable, now that you know what the real magical world is like?

    I never really read fantasy at all - I preferred to read about things like tanks and fighter planes. There are huge inaccuracies in fantasy fiction now that I've been exposed to the magical world, but there are just as many errors in how wizards see Muggles. I don't think the fantasy genre is laughable because there are still lots of things about the magical world that I still know nothing about. However, I do find wizarding perceptions of the Muggle world ridiculous.

    D) What did you think of those cartoons, then?

    What cartoons? What are you talking about?

    E) Herr Goebbels is a silly little man, isn't he? Did you hear he was engaged to a Jewish girl?

    No he wasn't. Don't be ridiculous.

    There! Done with your questions! And what kind of Untermensch are you anyway?


    Hello Veronica. Now it's time for me to answer your questions.

    Can a Slav or a Jew or any other Untermensch be a good person?

    Well, they're not even fully human, so no.
    In that case, could they be good sub humans? I mean, there are some pretty nice cats and dogs out there… (I feel so weird asking this.)

    No matter how good a dog is, it is still a dog. Same goes for an Untermensch - they're still sub-human, no matter how well behaved they are. Sure, some of them could be good compared to the average sub-human, but that doesn't mean that they are Good (with a capital "G").

    And I'm curious - why do you feel weird asking this question?

    So… you say that you can't prove the existence of a subhuman soul. I can accept that. But that means that you can't prove that you have a soul either. Which means it is impossible to compare a subhuman and Aryan soul, because you can't even prove souls exist. In which case you can only compare their physical traits. So what this means is that basically Aryans are better merely because they are blonder, have bluer eyes, and are apparently stronger… is that the case?

    Not at all. What makes someone human is not only the physical aspect but the mental. Full human beings can not only think but reason, and feel emotions unique to humans like compassion, love, humility, duty, and have things like creativity. The reason why Untermenschen aren't fully human is that they cannot feel as we do.

    Call it a higher intellect or a soul or whatever you want, but it is what's inside the head that makes the Aryan supreme, and not just the physical body.

    You also say that Untermenschen have animal-like minds, and "lack the ability to feel or comprehend what it is to be fully human". In that case, wouldn't it be wrong to hate them for not being human, and for actions that, being animals, they aren't fully responsible for? It would be kind of like hitting a kitten because it instinctively scratched you…

    No it wouldn't. Remember that Untermenschen are sub-humans. Are there such things as sub-cats? Cats are expected to behave like cats, including scratching people. Untermenschen are sub-humans because they FAIL to act like full human beings.

    Here's a little sample of my background: I'm part Spanish, Italian, Basque, American Indian, and yes, part Aryan. Would you trust me?

    I can't say I can. Regardless of what race you are, I already can't trust you, because you only provided me a sample of your background. What else are you hiding?

    I've lived in Brazil, the US, and France. Does this change your answer at all, or does only my race matter?

    Moving to a different country doesn't change who you are. Nationality may change but the blood stays the same - your blood is what is important. Let's say some Untermenschen move to Germany (that can't happen, but for the purposes of this example, we'll ignore that) and reproduce. Their children won't be Aryans just because they were born in Germany - they are still Untermenschen because it is part of their genetic makeup.

    So no. My answer hasn't changed.

    Does it bother you sometimes that you clearly have less knowledge of the Wizarding World than pure or half-blood wizards? I mean, you didn't know what a Boggart or Patronus was…

    No, it doesn't bother me at all. Though I might not know many things about the magical world, most wizards know nothing at all about the Muggle world. It balances out.

    Since the Jewish religion is obviously a race to you, what would you think of an Aryan who, for whatever reason, decided to renounce Christianity and join the Jewish religion?

    The Jew is a race, or rather a vile sub-species of humanity - they are physically and mentally impure. An Aryan who decides to practice their disgusting rituals is a disgrace and cannot sink any lower, for he has rejected his fundamental humanity.

    What was your favorite book when you were younger?

    Probably one of my books on aeroplanes or one of the Sky Captain Otto von Von books.

    Well, I don't think slapping Dieter or exorcising him will do anything to change him - just like that brick wall, he is frustratingly immobile. And I think it is useless to try beating either of them, especially the wall! I assume using a flamethrower or something would be very effective against Dieter, but that won't do anything to change his opinions. I suggest just letting time take its course, and waiting to see what he feels once 1945 rolls around.

    And speaking of which, I better get back to writing the story, which is still in 1938! I've had so many questions on this thread that these interviews are a lot longer than the actual story! But I'm not complaining. I really do enjoy these interviews, and I appreciate everyone's input and questions that have helped me flesh out Dieter's character. So thank you!

    Now, I'm not feeling energetic enough to write about the next cartoon. Maybe I'll edit this post to include it later or just write in a a later response or something.

    Well, cheerio!

    Hello, Dieter!

    I have a few questions for you.

    What is your least favorite color?

    How do you like your eggs cooked?

    How would you feel if you found out that you had been adopted, and your real parents were Latins, or some other undesirable race?

    What is your worst memory? Nightmare?

    Favorite memory? Favorite dream?

    Do you have a favorite animal, and if so, what is it?

    Say you had never met me before. What would my first impression of you be?

    My father is Jewish, but my mother is very Aryan. I prefer not to categorize myself as a race, ethnicity, religion, or color, because I think of myself as a person first and foremost. What do you think of that? How would you feel about me, as a peer, as a teacher, and/or as a random person off the street?


    Tim, where did Dieter come from- did he pop up out of nowhere, or have you been carrying him around for aeons? I like him, he's very.... interesting. And I think it's totally cool that you have the "protagonist" an "enemy" of most normal protagonists. Although Dieter probably thinks we (as in, most people) are the enemy.

    Guten Tag, Maggie,

    I'm here to answer your questions!

    What is your least favorite color?

    Probably whatever colour vomit is - it's hard to describe.

    How do you like your eggs cooked?

    I like them scrambled.

    How would you feel if you found out that you had been adopted, and your real parents were Latins, or some other undesirable race?

    I have no idea - that's not something I think about, because I am who I am and there is nothing anyone can do to change your race. I was born Aryan and I will die Aryan, so I have no reason to think about what I would feel if I was born differently. It's kind of a silly question, really.

    What is your worst memory? Nightmare?

    My worst memory? I can't say I've ever been emotionally scarred, so I can't really think of any bad memories, save for when I was caned in front of class once or twice a few years ago. I'm not fond of that not because it was particularly painful (well, it was, actually), but because it was embarrassing more than anything else. But then again, everyone got their hands whacked from time to time, so I'm not alone.

    Concerning nightmares, I vaguely recall one that involved Jews and Josef Stalin somehow. Can't remember it much, but I think they ate me alive or something. Not pleasant!

    Favorite memory? Favorite dream?

    My favourite memory would have to be riding a broomstick for the first time - it was amazing! I couldn't fly it terribly well, but I've always wanted to get airborne somehow, and I never would have thought I would ride a broom before riding in an aeroplane. On a broomstick, I love how you feel weightless in dives (or when falling off) - it's just so... weird!

    I have trouble remember good dreams in detail, but I think I had a good one a few days ago that involved the Führer riding a dragon which lit communists on fire with its fiery breath.

    Do you have a favorite animal, and if so, what is it?

    Well, I like dragons, even though I've never even seen one - any creature that can shoot flames is automatically interesting! However, for normal animals, I like dogs. Never actually had one, though...

    Say you had never met me before. What would my first impression of you be?

    I have no idea what you'd think of me - I can't read minds, though some wizards apparently can! But I would hope that you would see me as a well-mannered, patriotic, and responsible German youth.

    My father is Jewish, but my mother is very Aryan. I prefer not to categorize myself as a race, ethnicity, religion, or color, because I think of myself as a person first and foremost. What do you think of that? How would you feel about me, as a peer, as a teacher, and/or as a random person off the street?

    WHAT? You're a Mischling? Eeuuuggghh!

    Well... nice talking to you...

    ~ Dieter Heydrich


    Salutations, herm_own_ninny13! If you were wondering, Mischling means "cross/half-breed," and is what the Nazis called people of partial Jewish ancestry.

    Tim, where did Dieter come from- did he pop up out of nowhere, or have you been carrying him around for aeons? I like him, he's very.... interesting. And I think it's totally cool that you have the "protagonist" an "enemy" of most normal protagonists. Although Dieter probably thinks we (as in, most people) are the enemy.
    -Maggie!
    I would say that Dieter popped out of nowhere. Ever since I read Deathly Hallows, I've thought about Grindelwald's Germany, but once I decided to write about it, I wanted from the start to write the story from the Germans' perspective to make things interesting. It all happened really quickly, and that's how Dieter was created. I wanted my protagonist to be a Muggle-born Nazi fanatic, so I could show the similarities and differences between the two totalitarian Germanies. Plus, I just thought the whole concept of his character was very appealing, though slightly disturbing!

    Well, thanks for the questions!

    Hi, Dieter! Please call me Ema. I have a few things I was wondering about you, but first I’d just like to apologise if they have been asked before. I have read this thread the whole way through, but if I try to commit it to memory my head will probably explode, which would be bad. So I’m not going to try.

    Okay, here are the questions:

    Are you particularly religious? I think you mentioned that you don’t really pay attention to religion before, buy I’m not sure. What about your parents? How does magic affect both your and their opinions of God etc?

    Aren’t all humans descended from Adam and Eve? Because if that’s what you believe, then I don’t understand how anybody could be ‘sub-human’ (sorry, I can’t pronounce the German word for it). After all, wasn’t Adam created by God, and then Eve, and the entire human race from them?

    Some slightly nicer, uncomplicated questions:

    Aww, you believe in true love! Do you know how rare that makes you in the population of eleven and twelve year old boys? What about the rest of your family, do they? And what’s the main opinion in Durmstrang?

    Do you like fruit salad? (This is a very important question, please don’t ignore it )

    What’s your favourite genre of music?

    At my school, if you hit a girl you would be called a girl-basher. If you become one of those, then you are ignored by most people for about a week. Do you have any social offences like that in your old Muggle school, at Durmstrang, or just in Germany in general?

    I have blue eyes, and I used to have blonde hair, but as I got older it changed to a mix of blonde, gold, brown and ginger. So would I be considered a perfect Aryan? (Say if I was German and believed all of that rubbish). What I mean, is would I be considered one of the best candidates to producing offspring of a perfect human being?

    *Is rather hyper and tired at the same time so is probably not making much sense*

    Also, I know what will happen in the future of Germany for you, and I hope you and your family survive.

    One last thing, what happens if you eat lots of sugar? Do you go hyper?

    -Ema

    Hi, Dieter! It's me again, and I have more questions for you (and no Nate)!

    Are you good at Transfiguration? Do think you would ever want to try and become an Animagus?

    Do you even know what an Animagus is? Do know if any of your teachers are any other adults are Animagi?

    You said your wand core is made of? Does the wandmaker in your country only use a certain group of specific cores, or just whatever works?

    What is your favorite species of owl? What would you name it?

    Could you hit a girl if she hit you first? What about using magic? Is magic any different from physical force in your eyes?

    What is the worst you have ever been physically hurt? At the hands of another person?

    Are you good at dealing with pain?

    What other Magic schools do you know about besides Hogwarts in England and Beauxbatons in France?


    Wow, I think we've hit the seven year itch, Dieter. I'm running out of thing to talk to you about.

    Brand New Story!

    Banner by lullaby_BANG. Completely awesome avi came from here!

    My brand new trailer for Snape Didn't Die by thegirllikeme to serve as a constant source of inspiration whilst I write!

    Hello Ema. Don't apologise for asking questions that have already been asked before - I've answered so many that I've lost track!

    Are you particularly religious? I think you mentioned that you don’t really pay attention to religion before, buy I’m not sure. What about your parents? How does magic affect both your and their opinions of God etc?

    I'm not really religious. I suppose I believe in God, but religion is something that never crosses my mind - I don't think about it, and to be quite frank, it's BORING. I've also never gotten into the habit of praying, except when I'm in trouble or I want the Almighty to help me on some difficult test.

    Neither of my parents are particularly religious either - Vati more so than Mutti. He describes himself as an atheist, but that didn't stop him from marrying Mutti in a church. I don't know if he's always been an atheist or if he only became so during the war - I've never asked.

    My mother, in contrast, is more religious, but not by much. I remember she used to take us to the church on Sundays until 1933, when I was five - I hated going to church. It was really boring and a waste of time.

    I think Mutti stopped taking us to church not because she realised we were bored (she already knew that), but probably because she found more contentment through National Socialism. After all, was it God who saved Germany and made jobs and restored our pride, or the Führer?

    Aren’t all humans descended from Adam and Eve? Because if that’s what you believe, then I don’t understand how anybody could be ‘sub-human’ (sorry, I can’t pronounce the German word for it). After all, wasn’t Adam created by God, and then Eve, and the entire human race from them?

    I believe in Darwin and Evolution. Even if Adam and Eve actually were the first humans, remember that they were only the starting point. Over thousands of generations, certain branches of the human family tree were corrupted and became their own categories of sub-humanity, and separate from the fully human branch.

    And "Untermenschen" is pronounced the way it's spelled: Un-ter-mensch-en

    Some slightly nicer, uncomplicated questions:

    Aww, you believe in true love! Do you know how rare that makes you in the population of eleven and twelve year old boys? What about the rest of your family, do they? And what’s the main opinion in Durmstrang?


    What? I don't really think about love, or ask other people about it. Love is love. Why do I need to elaborate?

    And why do you think it's so cute all of a sudden? What are you saying about other boys my age and their thoughts on love? I'm confused!

    Do you like fruit salad? (This is a very important question, please don’t ignore it )

    No. I can't stand fruit salad, or any kind of salad.

    What’s your favourite genre of music?

    I don't know - I don't really know what genres are which anyway. But I like things with a lot of percussion and brass instruments.

    At my school, if you hit a girl you would be called a girl-basher. If you become one of those, then you are ignored by most people for about a week. Do you have any social offences like that in your old Muggle school, at Durmstrang, or just in Germany in general?

    Well, obviously it's not very good for Aryans to fraternise with Untermenschen - it's not just disgusting, but it's against the law too. People of different species shouldn't mingle in any way, shape, or form.

    But then again, you don't find many sub-humans in Germany, so this isn't much of a problem!

    At Durmstrang, there are some people who look down on Muggleborns like me, but they're very old-fashioned and usually obnoxious. I don't like those kinds of people, and I'm not alone in this thinking. Even Grindelwald himself is committed to eliminating these ridiculous old prejudices - he wants us wizards to be united and strong, and put aside our internal differences. He's a lot like Hitler in this respect.

    I have blue eyes, and I used to have blonde hair, but as I got older it changed to a mix of blonde, gold, brown and ginger. So would I be considered a perfect Aryan? (Say if I was German and believed all of that rubbish). What I mean, is would I be considered one of the best candidates to producing offspring of a perfect human being?

    Well, were your parents Aryans? Just having blonde hair doesn't make you Aryan.

    *Is rather hyper and tired at the same time so is probably not making much sense*

    Also, I know what will happen in the future of Germany for you, and I hope you and your family survive.


    Wait, what? What are you talking about? What's going to happen?

    One last thing, what happens if you eat lots of sugar? Do you go hyper?

    Well, I feel a bit more energetic, but nothing like when all common sense goes out the window.


    Now, on to Molly's questions!

    Are you good at Transfiguration? Do think you would ever want to try and become an Animagus?

    I'm decent enough at Transfiguration. I'm not stellar at it, but I do well enough - I find Charms much more interesting, not to mention more useful.

    And what's an Animagus?

    Do you even know what an Animagus is? Do know if any of your teachers are any other adults are Animagi?

    Again, what is an Animagus? What are you talking about?

    You said your wand core is made of? Does the wandmaker in your country only use a certain group of specific cores, or just whatever works?

    My wand's core is a dragon heartstring from a Norwegian Ridgeback. Concerning the wood, it is rigid, dark ebony, and 33 centimetres long.

    And I don't know much about wands in general, and I don't know what Gregorovich's personal policy on wand cores is.

    What is your favorite species of owl? What would you name it?

    I like Eagle Owls - they have these feathers on their heads that look like ears. And I don't know what I'd name an owl. I'll have to think about that.

    Could you hit a girl if she hit you first? What about using magic? Is magic any different from physical force in your eyes?

    If a girl hit me, I'll hit her back!

    Well, it depends on whether she was just playing or if she was deliberately trying to hurt me. But if a girl tried to hurt me, I won't hesitate to defend myself.

    And I think magic is just a different kind of force - physical is another. Depending on the situation, one can be more useful than the other.

    What is the worst you have ever been physically hurt? At the hands of another person?

    A Bludger knocked me off my broom during Quidditch class, and I broke both of my wrists when I hit the ground. I wasn't that high up, but it hurt quite a lot.

    At the hands of another person... I haven't broken anything, and haven't suffered anything serious enough to make me stay in the hospital wing overnight.

    Are you good at dealing with pain?

    All right, I suppose. I don't like pain, though. It's... painful.

    What other Magic schools do you know about besides Hogwarts in England and Beauxbatons in France?

    I know a little about that other school in Germany in the west, but I've forgotten it's name. Besides, that school isn't important, because it's been closed and all students are sent to Durmstrang instead.

    Well, thanks for the questions, Ema and Molly! Oh, and by the way, did you see Bine's announcement that you can get house points if you wright character reviews/critiques instead of just listing questions?

    ~ Dieter Heydrich


    Sorry it took me so long to respond to these questions, but I've been busy writing the actual story for once! Thanks again for agreeing to beta the story, Molly. Please PM me back the edited chapter as soon as you are done with it so I can submit it. Thanks!

    Wowza, I've been reading this thread for the better part of two days (not continuously, of course; I've been doing things in between, such as sleeping), and I just keep getting more and more intrigued. Dieter is such an interesting character, because his views and values are the total opposite of what is considered morally and politically correct today. I'm somewhat disgusted by his ideals (and by 'somewhat disgusted,' I mean 'ridiculously disturbed'), but I also really pity him. As I continue reading about him, I keep realizing the extent to which the Nazis brainwashed the German youth. I can't help but think that it's not his fault for believing all this Aryan nonsense, even though I want to shake him most of the time. *sighs* I completely disagree with his opinions, but at the same time I feel I have an understanding of his personality and the way he views the world: Aryan supremacy, to him, is a fact, not something that can be discussed or changed depending on the whims of politicians. I've begun to have a soft spot for this misguided kid, even though I know he'll grow up to be a monster; I can see, through his answers to these questions, that it's just how he was brought up and what was forced down his throat since early childhood. You've done a fabulous job with this character, and I'm most definitely going to check out your story when I have more time.

    Anyway, now for some questions for Dieter:

    1. How do you pronounce your name? I'm sorry, but I don't speak German and I'm afraid I've been pronouncing it wrong this whole time.

    2. Do you feel that Grindelwald's ideals conflict with Hitler's? Doesn't Grindelwald's vision of Wizard supremacy mean that, to him at least, non-magical Aryans - even Hitler! - are of a lower class? In keeping with that, what would you do if you had to choose between the two? Would you be willing to give up magic in order to be loyal to your country?

    3. Would you support the murder/death of all Untermenschen (I don't know if I spelled that right)? You've said that they're a different species, but you wouldn't want to kill, let's say, all dogs, would you?

    Those are all my questions for now. I find you very interesting, Dieter, and I'll definitely be waiting to see what you have to say.

    ~Sammie

    Bine: 3 points for your character analysis.

    Well, hello Sammie. It's nice to meet you.

    1. How do you pronounce your name? I'm sorry, but I don't speak German and I'm afraid I've been pronouncing it wrong this whole time.

    It's pronounced the way it's spelled: Die-ter Hey-drich

    Helpful, isn't he? Anyway, his first name is pronounced "Dee-ter," with a long E sound for the first syllable. The first syllable of his last name has a long I sound (like in "aye" or "hi"), so it would sound like "Hi-drich" However, I like to pronounce it like "Hey-drich," which I think sounds a little better, even though it isn't accurate to the language.

    2. Do you feel that Grindelwald's ideals conflict with Hitler's? Doesn't Grindelwald's vision of Wizard supremacy mean that, to him at least, non-magical Aryans - even Hitler! - are of a lower class? In keeping with that, what would you do if you had to choose between the two? Would you be willing to give up magic in order to be loyal to your country?

    Don't be silly. Grindelwald doesn't say Aryan wizards are any better than Aryan Muggles. We're just... unique. When wizards come out from hiding, we shall live together with Muggles and support each other, and life will be better for all. I would never need to choose between the two, because there will be a time when the world of wizards and Muggles will be one.

    Evidently, Dieter has a very vague understanding of Grindelwald's ideology...

    3. Would you support the murder/death of all Untermenschen (I don't know if I spelled that right)? You've said that they're a different species, but you wouldn't want to kill, let's say, all dogs, would you?

    Why would you suggest such a thing? Aryans are not senseless murderers - that's what Bolsheviks and Jews do! We're better than that. Besides, it would be very difficult to kill every Untermensch on the planet - making them work and be useful for once would be much more practical.

    Well, it was nice talking to you.

    ~ Dieter Heydrich


    Thank you for the questions and extensive comments on Dieter, MissSammiekins! Concerning Für Das Größere Wohl, the fourth chapter is in the queue, so it should be updated quite soon. But it doesn't end there! I just finished Chapter Five and am currently working on number Six! I seem to be writing very quickly these days!

    Hm, we can get points for critiquing characters. Then I shall do exactly that!


    What I find most hilarious about this thread is that people keep trying to ask Dieter questions to confuse him out of his Nazi beliefs and turn him into a sweet little angel. As though Dieter is a real person who is really anwering these questions while Tim types them out. Do they think Dieter just has no hands and can't type out the thread himself? But, in a way, it also speaks a lot to how well this character has been developed. The best characters are the ones that can be seen as real people. These are also the ones that interest people the most. And Dieter is just the right balance of outstanding and ordinary to make an excellent story.

    And you really must have an outstanding amount of patience to put up with all of it. Not only that, but must also be extremely well-researched and have no fear of delving into the dark. A lot of people I know would be too afraid of even the concept of Nazi ideaolgy to delve to deep into it, but you clearly exibit no fear of such a task.

    I'm simply excited to see how Dieter's political beliefs will mix in with his emersion into the wizarding world.

    Brand New Story!
