The Great Wizarding War – Chapter 2 – The Chess Master

Woman: Lumos. Who are you? Woman: An interested party. Are you with the Ministry? Woman: At the moment, that remains to be seen. Woman: But, this is a ministry building, And I mean you no harm. I just want to make sense of what happened. Nothing you say will leave this room. Right. Woman: I’d like to ask you a couple of questions regarding the events of last month. Please, start at the beginning. Our records show that you and three others arrived as St Mungos in the middle of the night? Yes. Remus, one of our friends… was badly hurt. So I disarmed the locks on the windows, and tracked down a healer who took everyone in. Woman: And how did you disarm the spells? I was training to be a healer, so I already knew the passcode and counter spells. Woman: What was your friend suffering from? Some sort of… dark magic curse. Woman: You don’t know what it is? No. Woman: The healers reports were baffled, as well. What happened after Remus was admitted? Sirius stayed at the hospital… My friend and I got into a fight, and we went our own ways for a while. Woman: Did you know where James went? No. We didn’t talk to each other for a while after that. Woman: At this point, had you seen anyone using magical artifacts? No. Woman: No one in St. Mungos using artifacts? They were practically out of potions! I doubt they would have any artifacts just floating around the grounds. Woman: Any summonings at all? Anything you would recognize from Hogwarts? No. Not that I saw. Not then. Woman: Do you know where the sword of Gryffindor is? Why? Justin: Broad Strokes Productions presents… The Great Wizarding War Written by Justin Zagri and Garrett Schweighauser, Directed by Justin Zagri, Produced by Mick Ignis Chapter Two: The Chess Master (Ministry officials walk through the ministry of magic halls. Floo powder flames are heard.) LUTHOR: Knight to D-5. (chess piece moves) ARTHUR: Hmm. LUTHOR: See where I’m going? ARTHUR: Not quite…but I have a feeling. ARTHUR: Bishop to E-4. LUTHOR: Keeping me at bay won’t work forever. ARTHUR: It’ll do for now until I figure out what you’re up to. LUTHOR: I read about that raid the other day. In surrey? ARTHUR: Yeah. Mess, that was. Death Eaters hexed an entire car repair shop. LUTHOR: Lucky you and your crew got to it when you did. Pawn to F-5. ARTHUR: Lucky. ARTHUR: Pawn to F-3. LUTHOR: I heard there was a bit of a perk to that one. ARTHUR: What do you mean? LUTHOR: The A.M.C. Javelin? ARTHUR: Oh, right! Brilliant find. Some daft chap tried to hex the transmission! They had no clue what they were doing. Got a good look at it. Brand new. LUTHOR: I heard it was bright- ARTHUR: Red! Beautiful coat. Don’t know how the Muggles do it. LUTHOR: Well I suppose they have a few advantages in the transport department. ARTHUR: If only a broom could, uh….what do they call it? LUTHOR: Rev? ARTHUR: Vroom! That was I was gonna say. LUTHOR: (chuckles) you ever think about taking one on for yourself? ARTHUR: Blimey! Molly would never let me. Bet the kids would love it, though. LUTHOR: How are they, by the way? Let’s see, you’ve got Bill, Charlie, Percy And a set of twins, now, I hear. ARTHUR: Oh. Yeah. Quite the load. LUTHOR: Think they’ll be Gryffindors? ARTHUR: I’d be quite proud if they were. LUTHOR: I’m sure you will. ARTHUR: I reckon you’ll keep an eye on them when they get sorted? LUTHOR: Knight takes pawn. (knight moves, unsheathes sword, destroys pawn) LUTHOR: I would love to, Arthur. but my contract for defense against the dark arts was a one time deal. afraid the school board and ministry takes up too much of my time. ARTHUR: I’m sure they do. Lots of talking, and conversing, and discussing… LUTHOR: I do envy how often you go into the field. but, I’m best with people. speaking of which, board meeting in five. Think we’ll have to finish this another time. ARTHUR: Right…suppose we won’t finish this game for a while. LUTHOR: I suppose not. but, I look forward to resuming. Please, give Molly my best. ARTHUR: Luthor? When this game is finished, I’d like to show you that Javelin. LUTHOR: When this game is over, I’ll take you up on that. PAPERBOY: Muggles and Wizards alike continue to disappear! Ministry two steps behind Death Eaters! Paper for you, Mr. Frumentar? LUTHOR: No. Thank you. LUTHOR’S ASSISTANT: Ah. Good morning, Mr. Frumentar. Here is your mail, your board meeting is in five. LUTHOR: Anything of note? LUTHOR’S ASSISTANT: Uh, yes, actually. A parchment with the mark on it, you mentioned was priority if you see it, it’s on your desk. LUTHOR: Where’s the Floo Powder? LUTHOR’S ASSISTANT: Here you are, sir. LUTHOR: Tell the boys at the meeting I’ll be late. WILTSHIRE! LUTHOR: Lucius Malfoy! I see more dawdling and less preparing from you and your group. We have a raid to discuss, do we not? SNAPE: Professor? LUTHOR: Ah, Severus. Not your professor anymore. But I dare say you were my top student. Won’t be surprised if you get the position yourself one day. Assuming things go our way. SNAPE: Thank you, sir. LUTHOR: Welcome to the Death Eaters. MRS. PETTIGREW: And then what happened? PETER: And then… I don’t know. I didn’t see much. MRS. PETTIGREW: Peter! You don’t know if they lived or died?! PETER: He was gonna kill me, mum! I didn’t know what else to do! MRS. PETTIGREW: Oh dear…well have you heard from them since? PETER: It’s only been half a day, mum. No, I haven’t. MRS. PETTIGREW: Oh well I do hope they’re alright. But I’m relieved you’re okay, sweetness. Oh, this war. This war, this war, this war. I thought it’d be up by now. You would think the Ministry would have the resources to deal with such rubbish. If the Ministry can’t protect us, then we might have to do something for ourselves! Well, I suppose you’re famished. Shall I get you some sweets? Turkish delight? Peter: No, no thanks, mum. MRS. PETTIGREW: But you’re shivvering. And you must be so hungry. PETER: I’m not hungry, mum. MRS. PETTIGREW: Nonsense! You stay right there, and I’ll fetch you something. PETER: I’m quite fine, mum. MRS. PETTIGREW: Not another word, sweetness! Would you get that, sweetness? PETER: James?! MRS. PETTIGREW: Who is it, sweetness? PETER: James! Prongs! JAMES: On your feet. PETER: James, I’m so sorry. You must- JAMES: You ran off. Like a coward. PETER: He was gonna kill me! JAMES: You could have fought him. PETER: I couldn’t! JAMES: He almost killed me! Sirius was tortured, Remus is still bleeding out! PETER: James! JAMES: YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN BRAVE! PETER: YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE STARTED IT! JAMES: What?! PETER: You were warned. Remus warned you, I warned you Even Padfoot warned you! JAMES: You don’t know what you’re saying. PETER: I was right there, James! It was a bad idea all around, even if we did beat him. JAMES: I was trying to keep Lily safe. PETER: He must wanted to talk to her. JAMES: How would you know that? PETER: I saw it. JAMES: You saw him nearly kill me, and how can you stand there and defend him?! You know where he’s going. Where he’s probably gone by now. PETER: I know! But… by all accounts, you know he would never hurt her. if, you would just let him- JAMES: I would NEVER let his slimy claws anywhere near her. He’s on the wrong side of this war. It’s my place to protect her. And I admit I didn’t see it coming. That Snape…was so strong. I should have. PETER: James… I’m sorry. JAMES: You’re not. You betrayed us. Think about that. MRS. PETTIGREW: Goodness! Where did you run off to?! RODOLPHUS: Heard things are going well, Goyle. Plans executed? GOYLE: Yup. Had our first raid. Was stopped last week by that Weasley pratt, but we got what we needed. ALECTO: Heard you tried to hex that muggle car. Blew up in your face, did it? GOYLE: No! Just some soapy stuff came out from under the window. ALECTO: Made you nice and squeaky clean, though. (crowd laughs) LUTHOR: And how are plans shaping up for the next one, Rodolphus? RODOLPHUS: Quite well. We got the Ministry thinking we’re gonna hit Hogsmeade next. They’ve increased security. Should have minimal fuss from Moody and company. LUTHOR: Good…and who will be leading it? LUCIUS: That would be me. LUTHOR: You, Lucius? LUCIUS: Hm. I volunteered. RODOLPHUS: Figured the boy needs to get his feet wet. He’ll be coming along with the Mrs, Alecto, myself and Amycus. AMYCUS: Happy to be of service by the way, Mr. Luthor. It’s a real honor. ALECTO: No need for brown nosing, Amycus. AMYCUS: I’ll brown it up all I like, good sister. LUTHOR: I wonder if you might take along Severus as well. SNAPE: Me? LUCIUS: Him? He just got here, don’t you think that he should- LUTHOR: He held his own against four trained wizards. I would know, I trained them. BELLATRIX: You shouldn’t have trained any of them. RODOLPHUS: That’ll do, Bella. LUTHOR: It’s alright, Rodolphus. And why not, Bellatrix? LUTHOR: If you had stuck to the Slytherins or kept your business out of that miserable school, we wouldn’t have as much opposition. You just added more skilled wands to their side. LUTHOR: As I did ours. And you and I both know it was the Dark Lor’d plan to keep tabs on where those students would be headed. Had I been biased, appearances would have been difficult to keep up. RODOLPHUS: You got a problem with the way the Dark Lord runs things? BELLATRIX: No… RODOLPHUS: Good. Well Luthor, if you think he’s ready, he’s welcome to join. Severus? SNAPE: Of course. It would be an honor. LUTHOR: Good. I know you will do well. SNAPE: Would you mind letting me in on the details? RODOLPHUS: I’ll fill you in on the way. But you’re gonna need something if you want to come along. SNAPE: What’s that? RODOLPHUS: One of these. AMYCUS: Ah, yes. Certified mask. Makes it official. LUTHOR: The brand makes it official. but it’s a good start. ALECTO: By the way, Severus, I heard you did a good one on young Remus in that fight. LUTHOR: What do you mean, Alecto? ALECTO: I mean with his pretty face! Cut it up good! He’s got a nice criss cross, now. Might be good to play knots and crosses on! (crowd laughs) LUTHOR: Where did you hear that from? ALECTO: Our man inside St. Mungos. He’s still bleeding out, too. Can’t stop it. You’ll have to teach me that one, Sevvy. Whatever you did. (murmuring in agreement) SIRIUS: Where’s the bloody healer? You. With the creepy cloak. You the dark magic specialist? Hey…what’s with the wand? YOU. SNAPE: Get out of the way. SIRIUS: I’ll kill you. SNAPE: Hand off your wand. And if you don’t keep your mouth shut, I’ll kill you. SIRIUS: I don’t care. What you did to Remus- SNAPE: Is power you can’t begin to contemplate. SIRIUS: What could you possibly do to him now, Snivvelus? SNAPE: Move away. Slowly. You aren’t going down without a fight, are you? SIRIUS: No. SNAPE: Fine. SNAPE: Petrificus Totalus! SNAPE: That must have hurt. But I’m sure it wasn’t as bad as last night. Sleep well. SNAPE: You were a fool. You’ve always been like me. Different. Misunderstood. You had your chance to tell them off. You knew the kind of pain they put me through. We even could have been friends. But you were just as dense as the rest of them. You side with the popular ones, think you’re safe with them. Well… Now you know. None of them deserve any mercy. Vulnera Sanentur…Vulnera Sanentur… REMUS: Severus?

  2. Woww.. The end! Gave me goosebumps even with the clinical depression I am battling ❤ #SnapeEffect Thank you Justin and team for the comfort 💖

  3. I like how you made sure that the healing spell sounded a bit like a song. Which is how it was described but never in anymore detail than that. Very well done!

  4. Oh my Gossip GIrl! This chapter was amazing. I can't believe that Severus would heal Remus! Makes me wonder what he's up to. Good work as always and can't wait for the next chapter!

  5. Is it strange I'm enjoying this more than the live action? 😀 The script is so well done! I love how you are building the character's story lines 🙂


  7. I am very curious about what will happen when Remus wakes up and they start asking questions… Will he say the truth?

  8. I hope that JK takes a long look at what ya'll are doing ,and makes a movie about it, with all of ya'll in it and help with making the movie too!

  9. I hate this idiotic Lily Potter and I hate the Marauders. The film is good play well, but these characters are disgusting.

  10. Extremely well done: I'm loving this. It was even better than the first episode. Keep it up, guys: I'm anxious for next month already!

  11. This is getting better and better. I'm getting the feeling how people felt waiting on each chapter of Dickens books. The wait is nerve racking!

  12. It was great and im a new sub ive seen ur other films as well this is the one that made me sub and ring the bell if u could just make a visual for it and please tell me what snape was doin at the end i mean its clear but so mysterious as well cant tell if he trys to kill remus or if he reverses the curse cant wait for the next one

  13. Woah Holy FRIGG this is so good!!!!!!! I really hope Remus is okay, Sirius you sweet bean for staying with Remus, and James Potter you idiot for dragging moony into that mess!!! PETER YOU ABSOLUTE COWARD!!!!

  14. Excellent…loved the story,voice of each and every character,…it's just wooooow…specially severus❤❤❤ waiting for more

  15. As always, an excellent and beautiful piece! I love how you guys keep up the quality and atmosphere, but, in my honest opinion, I think that in previous chapter drawings were more… Sophisticated, more charming, more wizard-like.

  16. James and Sirius are more powerful than Snape in the books. Furthermore, Snape is a wonderful character but a bad person, he would not have saved Remus and the idea of him beating Sirius in a duel with one spell is nothing short of obscene.

  17. Live-action Lily at the start was such a wonderfully clever way of doing a brief recap, as well as setting up future plot points!!! Love it 😀
    Also, was highly amused by Peter being offered Turkish Delight by his mum – the preferred treat for traitors ahaha

  18. Well! I've been begging for a film along these lines forever, so seeing as this is as close as imma get, I love it! It's almost like your bringing back the era before televison, when everyone listened to radio dramas! That bit where Snape (I should be nice and use first names, but im not…) showed up to heal Remus (he deserves a first name) broke my heart.

  19. NUUUUUUUUU NOT ANOTHER CLIFF HANGER!!!!😩😩😩🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯😍😍😍😍😍😍🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩

  20. Listening to Frumentar walking to his office and using the floo powder just made me automatically think of a one take camera shot straight to his fireplace. The mixing in this is genius!!!!!

  21. Astounding visual at the end. One quick thought- I always envisioned that it was Severus’s remorse regarding the outcome of his choices during this era that allowed him to sing shut the sectumsempra wounds in HBP. In this scene, he states that the Maurauders do not deserve mercy yet he grants it. What do you image he feels at this point in the story? What allows him to close the wounds of his past with Remus?

  22. James is being completely unfair. Peter may be a coward, but in this episode he made sense. That fight could've been avoided, but James went too far. He wasn't defending Lily, he was defending himself! HE'S the one who should be sorry.

  23. Why is the YouTube version longer than the podcast version? Specifically the interview with Lilly Evans at the beginning that was added

  24. OML I CAN‘T STOP WATCHING THIS SERIES, the idea ,Story, Charakters and the Voices are just PERFEKT and pretty much on Point !!!
    I just wanted to say you all deserve MUCH MORE likes and I feel like I should pay for this fantastic work!
    Anyway Keep it up with this Projekt and think you so much for making this 🙂

  25. This is so, so good! All the characters are just so perfectly executed. Extra kudos for Snape, I must say.
    I'm sitting on the edge of my seat now, on to the next chapter!

  26. So well written! I felt like I was there, I love the sound effects it adds so much depth to the story, very well done!

  27. this is amazing and really food for thought as well I was just wondering who does the voice of Lucius Malfoy?

  28. So If Snape Were To Completely Heal Remus He’d Need To Cast Vulnera Sanentur Three Times To Completely Heal Remus Since He Said It Twice He Cleared The Residue And Began To Heal The Wound But Better Than Nothing

  29. This Luthor (sp?) is what Fanfiction calls OC (Other Character ). He calls 'Wiltshire' which is an alias for Malfoy Manor which most stories use. It is likely Floo addresses have aliases something like occurs in computer science.
    I like the part where Severus Snape comes to St. Mungo's and heals Remus Lupin.

  30. Terrific episode. Luthor is a new Character apparently of your creation. He had been the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher and he's living a double life as a respected man in the ministry and a Death Eater. As he's never mentioned in the books I presume he will be killed before Lily and James die. I did notice a something that seemed off: When Luthor takes the Floo to Malfoy Manor he ends up on the grounds and walks into the manor. Floo travel as I understand it is from grate to grate so he should have come up inside.

  31. did anyone else cringe when he said "welcome to the death eaters" ???
    like my body spasmed and twisted i cringed so hard, were they about to have a little tea party or something ?
    who even welcomes someone like that to an organization full of people ready to kill?

  32. Ive watched a few of your non-Harry Potter movies and I swear I so love how amazing you all area. It truly shows how talented you all are when your able to do an audio story just as amazingly as a movie story.

  33. That was much better than the last one.
    I'm starting to think I may like this series.
    But why Is peter's mother a really creapy molly Weasley/Mrs. Dursley mix?
    I still don't Really know who's who.
    But this was better. I like this snape.
    But can I just point out,
    It's freaking Re-mis, not Ray-mis

  34. Did anyone else notice the occasional skull drawing with ‘2018’ written under it in these videos? Or is it just me?
