No rest for the wicked CF generally likes to be proved right and - owing to his bitter cynicism and mistrust - almost invariably is. However, in the case of yesterday's post ' Gordon is Safe Now ', CF very much wishes he had been competely, utterly fucking wrong. But no, the post was tragically, bang on the money: Why rebel, why resign dramatically, why go on TV to condemn McDoom when all that'll do is hasten my own personal trip to the wilderness?
He supposed there was no one else who McGonagall would trust to share the Heads tower. Her fall from grace over the summer after the War was shockingly swift; her messy breakup from the Ginger was plastered all over the Daily Prophet, and Draco was fairly sure that Rita Skeeter had a personal grudge against the girl because every issue had an article shaming the War Heroine.
His mother had whispered conspiratorially to him about Granger being 'unstable', but as Draco stared at her, Granger just stared blankly back. To him, she just seemed sad.
Nothing in her face resembled the woman he had known a few months ago. The last time he had seen Granger was at his trial, where she had defended him so viciously that Narcissa herself had sent an anonymous thank you note tucked into an original copy of Hogwarts, A No rest for the wicked essay.
The trial had taken place mere days after the Battle of Hogwarts, and Draco hadn't believed his advocate when the man said he had found someone willing to speak on Draco's behalf. He'd still thought the man was trying to pull some sick joke the morning of his trial.
When Draco had walked into the courtroom and seen that familiar mane of bushy hair standing next to the chair, he had nearly cried out loud. He had sat, with those blasted chains wound around him, in utter shock as Granger berated a room full of respected Wizenmagot members.
She had been wearing a short-sleeved blouse and muggle jeans, and the scarred word on her left forearm was prominent on her pale skin under the harsh light of the courtroom.
He remembered wondering if that was deliberate, because the minister could not stop glancing at it. Draco had no idea as to how Granger had known so much about his life to spin it into a tale of innocence and fear.
He had suspected his mother, and when he asked her afterwards, Narcissa merely sipped at her tea and told him to check to see if the post had come yet. That was a solid yes as far as answers from his mother went, and Granger became an even larger enigma.
She was a glorious speaker, and when she turned towards him in the middle of her defense, her eyes were as wild and angry as they had been on the battlefield.
They were out of place on a face that was gaunt and tired. Draco was so shocked that Granger had freed him that he sat in the chair a good minute after the bonds had released him.
It had taken the minister glaring at him at finally get Draco to move. Granger had waited for him outside the door, offered quick congratulations and made to leave. Draco desperately wanted to thank her, but all he said was "Didn't peg you for a liar, Granger.
But not for you. Looking over his shoulder now, Granger's eyes were dead. It seemed that shock had finally caught up to her. This girl following him to the prefect's compartment was not the same woman who had defied the Minister of Magic to keep Draco out of Azkaban.
Granger wasn't in the common room the next morning, nor was she at breakfast, in the Great Hall, and she didn't show up for first period Charms.
Flitwick paused when he reached her name on the roster but there was no answer. Draco glanced around the half empty classroom. There wasn't many seventh years to begin with, but Granger's absence was the most noticeable.
When Draco entered Defense Against the Dark Arts, and she wasn't there either, he resolved to look for her during lunch.

The lesson was wasted on Professor Comwell's ego. He spent the first forty minutes lecturing them about the Battle of Hogwarts, and how he, had tackled a Death Eater just as he was about to kill so-and-so, and how he was there when Harry Potter vanquished the Dark Lord.
Draco stood up suddenly, and Professor Comwell broke off.
The entire class was now looking at Draco, who had no idea why he was suddenly so angry. As he passed the big, arching windows, he looked out towards the grounds.
