In Perpetuum: Continuari [Harry Potter]

COMPLETED: Hermione Granger/Sirius Black. Sequel to 'In Perpetuum'. Make sure you read the first story, in order for this one to make sense. A series of one-shots based on the original story, mostly what happened between the end of the story and the epilogue.


4. Mors Comedentis


Upon seeing the destruction of her beloved master, Bellatrix's anger was felt most keenly by those who were positioned closest to her. She belted out a few Crucio curses to those who were standing nearest, not caring whether they were the enemy or otherwise.

Fortunately, she was not able to cause too much destruction as a few members of the Order of the Phoenix were able to incapacitate her enough to be able to control her.

Thick metal chains appeared around her struggling body as she fell to the ground with a heavy thud. Another wizard was able to wrestle the blackthorn wand from her grasp.

A few of the Death Eaters, seeing what had happened to prolific supporters of the Dark Lord, began to disapparate. A few of them even managed to splinch themselves in their haste, and chunks of flesh, with vivid red blood lay amongst the rubble.

A cloud of aurors had now descended upon the writhing Bellatrix, and with a pop, they too disapparated with her, no doubt straight to Azkaban to await trial for her crimes.

A few other aurors ran around, attempting to round up the remaining Death Eaters, or else shouting instructions at the witches and wizards who were trying to help.

Hermione lay, still unconscious on the ground, surrounded by her family and friends who tended to her, despite their own injuries. She was completely oblivious to the actions of those around her.

Sirius had eyes only for Hermione, and he too remained unaware of those who had spent the best part of an evening trying to kill him. He tried to make her as comfortable and stable as possible until he was given permission from the healers, to try and apparated her to St Mungo's.

It would be a full year before Hermione was able to sleep easily in her bed, because it would take a full year to capture all of the Death Eaters. It was really only the smart ones that lasted that long, which was not too bad considering that the majority of Death Eaters was rather dim, and were not able to avoid capture for too long.

There were still nights that Hermione lay awake, wondering if the Dementors would revolt as they had in her time. She wondered if any of the prisoners were animagi and would be able to escape as Sirius had. As the years passed, Hermione became less worried because surely, by now, the dementors would have rendered the prisoners almost soulless. They would have already paid for their crimes.
