Today I decided to have some fun and pulled out from my archives something that I wrote for a fanfic a long time ago))) So! I present to you a letter of outrage I'm sure Draco Malfoy would definitely write at some point, attacking Hermione Granger and her activity at the Ministry of Magic. I hope you'll enjoy it and tell me what you think!
THE DAILY PROPHET
WIZARDING WORLD IN DANGER OF EXPOSURE
WIZARDING WORLD IN DANGER OF EXPOSURE
An open letter to the wizarding community
By DRACO MALFOY
It has been of some concern to myself and my fellow witches and wizards from old pure-blood families to witness an alarming rise of pro-Muggle activity within the Ministry of Magic in recent years. While some might say and others might agree that it is, without a doubt, a worthy cause to maintain friendly ties between our communities and to graciously welcome and support Muggle-born witches and wizards into our fold, we find it rather disquieting to discover that certain members of the Ministry of Magic are over-zealous in their attempts to establish what we can only regard as a strictly Muggle-born society, governed by their new, untested laws; as well as promote (surely to some extent) Muggle awareness of our existence.
In any case, one can hardly argue that with so many Muggle-born witches and wizards occupying important positions within the Ministry of Magic nowadays, we have never been closer to the brink of exposure now than in recent decades. Therefore, I sincerely hope that this is someone’s idea of a bad joke. Otherwise, I am very much concerned for the well-being of the Wizarding World once it becomes exposed to Muggles and history repeats itself. I do not suppose that anyone, who is familiar with our history at least, must be reminded of the constant danger wizards faced while exposed to the Muggle eye before the institution of the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy of 1689.
|Noma Dumezweni as Hermione Granger|
Prominent among those who believe that Muggles can be trusted with the knowledge of our existence is one Hermione Granger – a Muggle-born witch of some talent who, it has been whispered, makes up in brains what she lacks in bloodlines. Having no ties to the wizarding community (or any knowledge of it) before she received her Hogwarts letter, she has, in the course of many years, often failed to grasp many of our long-standing customs and traditions. Indeed, ever since she arrived into our world, she has been trying to change and even undermine our ways that had been part of our heritage for centuries – heritage, that her Muggle descent does not allow her either to value or simply comprehend.
Her subversive activity started while she was still at Hogwarts. It was then when she launched her first attack at our traditions by aiming straight at the heart of every respectable wizarding household – house-elves, our faithful servants and dutiful companions – implanting dangerous ideas into their heads and going so far as to sabotage their work by trying to set them free against their knowledge, will and their very nature. Naturally, now that she is holding such an important position in the department of Magical Law Enforcement, it seems that there is no one who can stop her as she continues her devastating campaign, mindless of harm and distress that she is inflicting upon house-elves and their owners by her forceful actions that should not be tolerated or, indeed, permitted.
Should we let Ms Granger have her way and carry on the execution of her unfounded belief that she is doing right by house-elves setting them free against their wishes and our traditions, she will not stop there. Before we know it, she will demand the introduction of Magic Awareness subject in Muggle schools, the main aim of which will, naturally, be to learn how to recognize a witch or a wizard living in the neighbourhood, which will instantly put us in direct danger of Muggle detection. And from there it is not hard to predict what will happen next.
