Love and friendship Ministry of Magic and the Wizard's Council Nineteen years later

The Ministry announces that Voldemort had a daughter, whereabouts unknown

There is one truth we can't escape: that somewhere in our past a witch is trying to rewrite everything we ever knew - and all we can do is wait - wait for the moment she either succeeds or fails."
-- Hermione Granger (CC4.1)

Minister for Magic Hermione Granger, at a second Extraordinary General Meeting, announces to the wizarding world that Lord Voldemort had a daughter, whose whereabouts are currently unknown (CC4.1).

Hermione, Harry Potter, Draco Malfoy, Ginny Weasley and Ron Weasley stand together to take responsibility. However, there is nothing any of them can do until they know where Delphi is and what she is doing (CC4.1).

Timeline Notes

Likely to take place shortly after the previous event or possibly the next day

Commentary

Notes

This event takes place during the Voldemort Final timeline, as described in the essay "Albus Potter and the lesson in Quantum Mechanics" by Nick Moline.

The stage directions describe it as "almost a Spartacus moment" when Draco Malfoy says:

"Then it's a negligence I too should face…. Hermione and Harry have done nothing wrong but try and protect us all. If they're guilty, then I am too." (CC4.1)

In spite of them standing together in quite a humorous way, there is still real fear when it is realised that none of the people there are likely to be alive if Delphi achieves her goal (CC4.1).

Harry, Ginny and Draco don't know where their sons Albus and Scorpius are or what they are doing or whether they are safe - a nightmare scenario for any parent.
