Going back to what I was saying earlier, she could have causally mentioned that Dumbledore was gay (perhaps in Rita Skeeter's article). I think she kept it out so as not to offend anyone, or, possibly decrease book sales. It was clever of her to annouce it now.
Okay, now I could use some help.
About a week before the Dumbledore/Gellert ship was annouced (unrequuited as it may be), I had decided to ressurcut this ancient plot bunny of mine.
It takes place in the Marauder era, but a lot of it is set around the time of the great defeat of Grinewald. I had Dumbledore married with a small daughter, but I have him tell them to go (start an new life) to make sure they are safe from Grinewald and his followers.
(Assuming this now AU) Is this to OOC for Dumbledore? Would it be right to think he would send away the ones if he loves if he thought they were in danger? Or would he be protection enough?
