Hermione had stayed in Fandom because she wanted to research things from an outside perspective. If people were disappearing from home and they had no idea those people had ever existed, then it was smarter to stay here where she would remember and could get enough detail to maybe find out what was going on. So she wrote letters and tried to namedrop people to get a reaction. She checked books. She tried to find online evidence of people existing. She checked over the Prophet from day to day to look for changes. And the things she found terrified her, but she kept looking, because that was what she did. She got the information, and got it to he who fixed things.

She hadn't gotten much rest last night, going over some notes and fueling herself with coffee like that was a substitute for actual sleep. This morning she'd simply moved herself over to the sofa, going over information while idly stroking Crookshanks' fur. At least he seemed relaxed.


[For a call, but if you want to knock before that, now's your chance.]

It had taken him forever for him to find a telephone -- payphones were getting scarcer by the day, even in Muggle London. And then, with Ron nervously babbling in his ear about why he would even use a fellytone when he'd already sent a letter, Harry did his best to recall the number that would reach Hermione.

He hoped he got it right. He knew he had to get it right, because he could see from here that St. Paul's Cathedral wasn't sticking up into the skyline where it should, anymore.

"It's Harry," he said, with about as much preamble. "Hermione, where are you? Still in Fandom? Because you need to stay put -- something bad is happening. Like, dark magic bad. Things are disappearing. People are. Neville was sitting in the Leaky Cauldron with us one moment and then he was just gone, and he didn't Apparate, Hermione. He didn't control that at all."

"Have you found anything?" Because if there was anyone who could actually get answers out of a library at a time like this, it was the girl who'd figured out basilisks with a book at the age of twelve.

"Already tried that," Harry replied, shaking his head and ignoring a tightening in his stomach. "We're not even sure where Ginny went -- Apparition's working wonky on this end, and I even thought about finding us a portal but you said they're acting funny, right?"

"I can't just leave and get stuck somewhere else," Harry pointed out, pausing as Ron swatted at his arm to point towards what looked like a black cloud. And very suddenly, half their street was gone. "I have to go. Don't come. Stay there."

He knew she wouldn't, but he couldn't tell her to come into this, either.

"We have to find Ginny, and then we will," Harry promised, watching the cloud over his shoulder. "Hermione, it's getting bad, I have to -- "

And then there was a click, and Harry (http://www.payphone-directory.org/sounds/wav/bell/disconnected.wav) wasn't speaking anymore.

"We're sorry, you have reached a number that has been disconnected...."
