(no subject)

Updated with the 4th chapter. In this episode we turn our attention back to the Death Eaters to find out what life is like on the other side. Macnair makes Draco a tempting offer, but a growing rift between the Dark Lord's forces causes some trouble. So where does Draco see his future career? For the rebels, life doesn't seem peaceful either; a new rescue mission awaits them. And another row with Hermione makes Ron suspect that she and Harry are keeping a secret from him...

A quick note to the Macnair fans: Yep, he's back for this chapter and the next ones *g*

Hi folks,
I’ve put the translation of the second chapter of my WIP on LJ. I'm sorry to say that Macnair is not in this chapter, but he'll return in chapter 4. :-)

Summary (Chapter 2) He could feel his temper rising as he desperately forced himself to keep a clear head. Voldemort and his followers had such a simple view of the world, such clear categories about who deserved to live and who didn’t. The method behind the madness made it all the more cruel. This was not about children learning curses; this was about children being desensitized at a young age, being taught to hurt and kill without mercy. Did Voldemort hate Muggles so much because he had been treated badly by them as a child? Or was it because the pure-blooded Slytherins had taunted him during his time in Hogwarts? How on earth could anybody become such a psychotic madman?
Once again Harry wondered how much the Death Eaters knew of their Dark Lord’s past.

Freaking out the Muggles

A while back I got a Dark Mark tattoo on my inner left forearm. The other day I was in the elevator in my apartment building and these two teeny boppers (about 15 yrs old) were in the elevator with me. One of them had the entire Harry Potter collection.

Anyway, one of the girls sees the Dark Mark and I notice she seems to think its cool. Now mind you, I'm 6' tall and rather "strapping". I also have short cropped dark blond hair (no, not black) and a well trimmed military style mustache. Just about this time we're almost to my floor and I say to her in my best Scottish accent, "'ello...my name is Walden Macnair."

The eyes get bigger, the teenybopper squealing starts just as the elevator door opens and I step out and I swear I heard the squealing as the elevator continued to their destination.

Ah, its so fun freaking out the Muggles :)
