The Phoenix and the Serpent: a Harry Potter RP

WHO: 'Toby', Samantha, catatonic Tonks, random innkeeper
WHAT: Getting a room and tucking in Tonks and explaining to Samantha
WHEN: After screwing Sirius over in Iceland
WHERE: London. Leaky Cauldron.

'Toby' and his bundle touched down pretty late at night. Just outside the Diagon side of the Leaky Cauldron. Putting an invisibility charm on his bundles, 'Toby' strode inside. The man at the bar wasn't anyone he recognized. He reached into his pocket and found his last bit of coin. Two Galleons, seven Sickles, and a pair of knuts.

"How much for a room, then?" 'Toby' asked the man.

"Five sickles," came the reply, drowsily. 'Toby' slapped all seven sickles on the bar.

"I'll take a room and a bowl of broth to be sent up as soon as possible," he replied, taking the keys offered. "If a woman follows me in, do send her to the same room."

"Number five, sir."

'Toby' ran up the stairs. He had to get his bundle warm.

Tonks was as limp as a, well, limp doll. After she was tucked into her bed, given broth, perhaps a kiss or two on the forehead..... nothing happened.

'Toby' sighed. Of course nothing would happen. He sighed, seating himself in the adjacent chair. Placing his elbows on his knees, he lowered his fake face into his hands and began to cry. He'd screwed over his best friend. And the love of his life was probably braindead anyway. And Sirius would never ever forgive him.

Oh, but he had to get Tonks out of there. And now she was. And unconscious. Goody. He broke down, sobbing (in quite a mannish way, thank you!).

Fake-eyes red-rimmed, 'Toby' looked up and stood. Clearing his throat, he nodded.

"Greyback got the Death Eaters out of Azkaban. I expect he got himself a free pass there. Go to him. He doesn't want you dead. Promise him anything you can think of to get S-Sirius out. I'll take care of the rest. Whatever you promise, provided you won't do it beforehand, I will promise you won't have to do."

He kept his (fake) eyes level, and kept his chest from heaving.

"Whatever he wants you to do," 'Toby' managed through his fake teeth. "I assume he will need to be alive to enjoy. I'm going to kill him."

"Perhaps because you've never seen me do so?" he muttered. "I can kill. I killed for him, and I can fucking kill him. I'd kill myself right now if I thought it'd do any good."

"Please don't," said a thin and weak voice. Sure enough, there was Tonks- barely awake, barely alive.

"...don't..... no more..." She said, in a slightly more raspy voice. "stop... no..."

"Shh..." 'Toby' soothed. He reached over to rub her shoulder. "It's all right."

Tonks was only calm because it was not Remus she saw-- rather, the unknown Toby.

She calmed, and fell back asleep.

"I know I can," 'Toby' replied. Abruptly, 'Toby' realized that with the Tonks distraction, he had forgotten his hourly sip. His actual Remus face started to emerge from 'Toby'. In no time at all, 'Toby' was completely gone. "I've noticed his weak spots, and Severus has been making me an appropriate knife."

And on cue, Tonks screamed, covering and scratching her eyes once more. Where there had been scars and scabs, now bled.

At first, Remus attempted to calm her. When nothing he could say would work, he covered his face, and fled from the room, to find outside aid.

Severus Snape, known criminal, swept into the room. Remus followed, looking guilty. Casting his hawkish gaze hither and to, he fixed Samantha with an icy glare. Remus silently pointed to the unconscious Tonks, and Severus nodded.

He swept to the adjacent chair, and silently cast Legilimancy! finding himself in the dense and smoky fog of her mind. ((another thread))

"Professor Snape is a Legilimens," Remus explained. "He's all I could think of. I have to help."

"I can't poke around in her mind," Remus explained quietly. "I do, however, know someone who can. Whatever is wrong with her is mental. Severus can find it and suss it out."

"I've screwed up enough today. Just let me know when you guys go. I'll follow." He glanced at her. Merlin, he had had about enough of subterfuge.

"No," Remus replied. "That's just where Sirius ran into Savage. Follow the sewers aboveground West of London. You'll find the den if you... use your nose. Bring wine. He likes red."

You and me both, Remus thought. Out loud, he said, "It will all be fine. I'll have Tonks, you'll have Sirius." Sirius will hate me. "And the French ponce will be dead. Here, look." He pulled a blade from his pocket.

The handle was pewter, but the blade was pure silver. It was what had cost twelve galleons on Knockturn Alley.

"Silver," he whispered. "Careful. It'll kill that French bastard." Plotting to kill someone, though rather out of character, was nonetheless fun.
