Unforgivable Truth was the name given to an event of the Calamity.[1]

Adversaries Event: Dragons and Beasts

Part I (31 May–7 June 2021)

Brilliant Event Unforgivable Truth Part I.webp

Harry and Hermione work together to create a surge based around the events of their first year at Hogwarts. Will their experiment to use the Calamity to restore Ron's memories prove sucessful?[1]

Brilliant Hogwarts Corridor

"I've just heard from Constance. Considering the sorts of Foundables she and the rest of the SOS Task Force are seeing, I'd say our first experiment was a success. We were able to combine our memories of our first year at Hogwarts to create one unified surge."
Hermione Granger[src]
"You really think creating surges based on our adventures with Ron will restore his missing memories?"
Harry Potter[src]
"Yes, and I'm confident our second experiment will prove it. You saw it yourself during the last surge, Harry. Every time we returned a Foundable, Ron was suddenly able to recall a related memory. That can't be a coincidence. The Calamity must be the key to restoring Ron's memories."
Hermione Granger[src]
"Well, we've exhausted all our other options, so I sincerely hope you're right..."
Harry Potter[src]
"Don't worry, Harry. If everything goes as predicted, more than one question will be answered by this surge's end."
Hermione Granger[src]

"I know this troll... We fought it on Hallowe'en as first years, didn't we? That night's suddenly coming back to me... Tailing Snape... Rushing in to save Hermione... Finally making the Levitation Charm work...
Hermione... That's you, isn't it?
"
Ronald Weasley[src]
"Yes! Yes, that's absolutely right, Ron! Can you remember anything else?"
Hermione Granger[src]
"I remember that you took the blame for the whole thing, even though it was my fault you were hiding out in the toilets to begin with. And that it was the first time I saw you as a friend. I can't believe I forgot..."
Ronald Weasley[src]
"It's all right, Ron. What's important is that we've proven your memories can be restored. Now that we have, we won't stop until everyone is back."

"Harry, tell me the truth. Have you been feeding information to The Unforgivable, either willingly or via the Imperius Curse?"
Hermione Granger[src]
"Is this a joke? Of course not! Though I have been feeding on your lunches...
Why did I just admit that? Hold on... you put Veritaserum in my coffee, didn't you? Is that how you plan to expose The Unforgivable's mole? To make everyone drink Truth Potion without their knowledge?
"
Harry Potter[src]
"I'm sorry to subject you to this, Harry, but I had to be certain. I'm honestly loath to use Veritaserum without proper authorisation, but I didn't see any alternative. We don't know who in the Ministry we can trust and our culprit would surely sabotage any by-the-books attempt to sleuth out their identity.
We have to find this informant if we want to get the better of The Unforgivable. Given our circumstances, using Veritaserum on everyone and then replacing their memories of being questioned with something more innocuous is the only quick, viable option. It pains me to break the rules... but I have no choice.

"A Chocolate Frog, remember? You actually introduced me to them. Started me down the path of collecting all the Famous Witches and Wizards Cards too."
Harry Potter[src]
"Now I remember! We were on the Hogwarts Express. You pulled a Dumbledore on your first go. The look on your face when you saw his picture move was bloody brilliant... Though not nearly as good as the one you're making now."
Ronald Weasley[src]
"Sorry, can't help it. It wasn't a fluke or a coincidence, you really do remember! This calls for a celebration. What do you say we grab a real Chocolate Frog, for old time's sake?"
Harry Potter[src]
"I say, what are we waiting for? I can't remember the last time I had chocolate, literally."

"Constance, what I'm about to ask is a bit awkward, so I'm just going to come out with it. Are you working with The Unforgivable? Have you been sharing classified information with them?"
Hermione Granger[src]
"What? No, absolutely not! Why do you ask? Is it because you suspect I'm the mole? Is it because I sometimes sneak into your office, sit in your chair, and pretend I'm a Senior Minister? Because I promise I'm not spying on you! I just really admire you and want to be like you, is all...
You probably think I'm a fraud now. Or worse, a total stalker. I'm so sorry, Hermione! I have no idea what's come over me. It's like I'm under a Babbling Curse...
"
Constance Pickering[src]
"No, Constance, I'm sorry. I did suspect you might be the mole. That's why I put Veritaserum in your tea when you weren't looking. I'm not proud of it, but I had to be certain. After all, you had access to all the leaked intelligence and some of your comments did raise red flags... I hope you understand."
Hermione Granger[src]
"I wish I could lie and say I do and that I'm not upset. But seeing as that's physically impossible for me now, I'll just say that I'm hurt that you'd think I was capable of such betrayal. I thought we were better friends than that..."

"Mathilda, I was hoping I could talk to you about the incident in Cape Town. As I'm sure you've heard, when we arrived at the location of the black market auction, it was completely deserted. The numerous poachers that had been spotted there just hours prior were nowhere to be found.
Someone must have warned them we were coming. You wouldn't happen to have any idea who that might have been, would you?
"
Hermione Granger[src]
"No, but I wish I did so I could give them a good wallop! Bloody poachers create nothing but headaches and paperwork for us at the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures. And there's nothing I hate more than paperwork. Except, perhaps, my partner's mother.
Did I just say that out loud? Please don't tell anyone! Aisha wants nothing more than for the two of us to get along, and if she found out I can't stand her mother, she'd be devastated.
"
Mathilda Grimblehawk[src]
"Don't worry, Mathilda. In just a few minutes, it'll be as if this conversation never even happened..."
Hermione Granger[src]
"You were right, Hermione! Bits and pieces of Ron's memories really do come back to him when we return related Foundables. I'm not sure how that's possible, but I'm not complaining."
Harry Potter[src]
"My theory is that the Calamity is functioning like a Pensieve. Rather than Obliviating Ron, Kit Gerrard, and Flavius Flint's memories, I believe The Unforgivable used the Calamity to snatch and lock them away. Surges provide a channel for some of the trapped memories to "escape"."
Hermione Granger[src]
"So as long as we continue to use our shared memories to manipulate the Calamity, we should be able to return all of Ron's memories?"
Harry Potter[src]
"Theoretically, yes. Though it will take time before he's completely back to himself. I wish we could simply force The Unforgivable to release them, but, well... I haven't even been able to uncover the identity of their mole yet.
I haven't exhausted my list of possible suspects yet, so I still have hope this will work. But we may want to start considering our next course of action should it not.
"
Hermione Granger[src]

Part II (21–28 June 2021)

Brilliant Event Unforgivable Truth Part II.webp

Hermione's secret mission to uncover the identity of The Unforgivable's mole continues. Will she root out the corruption? Or will The Unforgivable be one step ahead again?[1]

Brilliant Trapdoor Chamber

"I don't know why I didn't think of creating a surge together sooner. With our combined efforts, it was much easier to fend off The Unforgivable's attempt to steal control of the surge between waves."
Hermione Granger[src]
"The Unforgivable must have realised that we know how to use the Calamity to restore Ron's memories. Should we be worried about that?"
Harry Potter[src]
"Perhaps, though I'm more concerned that they've realised I'm using Veritaserum to attempt to expose their informant. I've heard plenty of confessions - including a few that I wish I hadn't - but no one's implicated themself so far."
Hermione Granger[src]
"Perhaps there is no mole in the Ministry after all? We have plenty of circumstantial evidence, yes, but no definitive proof..."
Harry Potter[src]
"No, someone close to us has definitely been leaking our plans to The Unforgivable. The only question is - have I yet to 'interview' the culprit? Or have they managed to resist the Veritaserum's effects? Well, I suppose we'll find out which is true soon enough, won't we?"
Hermione Granger[src]

"Thank you for the Butterbeer, Hermione. Tastes a wee bit off, but I'm not so daft as to turn my nose up at a free drink on a warm summer's day."
Sage Bragnam[src]
"The weather has been rather unseasonably pleasant lately, hasn't it?"
Hermione Granger[src]
"Aye, but do you mind if we skip the pleasantries and get to the point of this meeting? I'd like to study a Philosopher's Stone Foundable before the surge is out. The Calamity may be an International Statute of Secrecy nightmare, but it's been quite a boon for my magical artefact studies."
Sage Bragnam[src]
"Unfortunately not everyone has such scholarly intentions. The Unforgivable have made it abundantly clear that they intend to use the Calamity for their Dark purposes. You wouldn't happen to know anything about them, would you?"
Hermione Granger[src]
"Only that they're all you and Harry talk about any more. Even outside of work, it's "The Unforgivable this" or "The Unforgivable that". I admire your devotion to your work, but you two need to seriously consider finding yourselves a hobby."

"Ron, have you been able to recall any additional memories of our first year since the second surge began?"
Harry Potter[src]
"Enough to question how we made it through the year in one piece. Battling a mountain troll? Sneaking past a giant three-headed dog? Making an enemy of Voldemort, who I'm told is one of the most dangerous Dark wizards of all time? I'm gobsmacked."
Ronald Weasley[src]
"The fact that we were by each other's sides through most of it probably has something to do with it. Me, you, and Hermione have always made a great team."
Harry Potter[src]
"Yeah, I'm starting to remember that."

"No, but they have noticed you acting oddly around them. Current theories as to why include Polyjuice Potion, a rotten Cauldron Cake, a strange case of Dragon Pox, and that you've "finally snapped under the stress.""
Harry Potter[src]
"A rotten Cauldron Cake? Honestly, so much codswallop gets circulated around here, you'd think we were The Quibbler."
Hermione Granger[src]
"They've also noted a general willingness to share their secrets with you. If you're not careful, they'll realise what you've really been up to."

You're clearly a better conversationalist and listener than I gave you credit for! Want to take a quick lunch? I had a dream last night involving a giant Niffler that I'd love to get your thoughts on...

Ronald Weasley[src]
"Don't be so modest. Your sacrifice was - and continues to be - one of the bravest acts I'd ever seen."
Hermione Granger[src]
"You might not think so highly of me if you knew what my first thought after I woke up was. I recall wondering if my injury could get me out of class for the rest of the term."
Ronald Weasley[src]
"Oh, Ron. Only you could manage to put your foot in it, even with most of your memories still missing."

Mysterious Note

Name Remarks
1st piece
"Hermione, one of our agents found this piece of a note attached to the wing of a Broken-Winged Key Foundable. Thought you'd want to take a look at it."
Constance Pickering[src]
"I do, but first I want to apologise to you again. I was so frustrated with The Unforgivable always being one step ahead and so engrossed in rooting out the mole that I started looking at you as a suspect rather than a friend.
I don't regret doing what's necessary to expose The Unforgivable, but I do regret hurting you in the process. You've always devoted yourself to combatting the Calamity and The Unforgivable. I shouldn't have distrusted you.
"
Hermione Granger[src]
"I'm sorry too. I took your suspicion personally, rather than recognising that you were just being diligent. There's just one thing I don't understand. Why didn't you modify my memories like you did the others'? Aren't I a liability that way?"
Constance Pickering[src]
"No, Constance, you're an ally. One I trust and want by my side. I'm just sorry I didn't recognise that earlier."
Hermione Granger[src]
5nd piece
"We don't have enough pieces yet to make out the entire note, but take a look at this. It certainly looks like it says "memories", doesn't it?"
Constance Pickering[src]
"Yes, and this part is definitely talking about Ron."
Hermione Granger[src]
"You don't think The Unforgivable might try to take Ron's recovered memories back, do you?"
Constance Pickering[src]
"Not if I have anything to do with it."
Hermione Granger[src]
Final piece
"This note is all over the place. It jumps from philosophical musings on memory and identity, to haughty declarations that their mission is noble, to threats against us should we get in their way."
Constance Pickering[src]
"The author certainly fashions themself an intellectual, don't they? But underneath the doublespeak, their brutish message is clear: stop interfering or end up like Ron."
Hermione Granger[src]
"They've followed through on all their other threats so far, so we can't afford to simply ignore it. But we also can't simply let them continue to endanger the world. Blast it, they love putting us in these no-win situations, don't they?"
Constance Pickering[src]
"Yes, they certainly do. Almost as much as they love to rig these twisted games of theirs so that the moment we sit down to play, we've already lost. This time, however, will be different. This time, I'll be setting the rules."
Hermione Granger[src]
"That might just be the single most brilliant thing I've heard in my life."
Constance Pickering[src]
"Miss Granger, what a surprise. Can whatever you've come to discuss wait? I'm rather busy..."
Gareth Greengrass[src]
"No, I'm afraid it can't. In fact, I'd say this talk is long overdue. Gareth, you're the mole who's been leaking our plans to The Unforgivable, aren't you?"
Hermione Granger[src]
"Don't be ridiculous, I'm no mole. I'm one of The Unforgivable's most respected members.
What am I saying...? You...! You put Truth Potion in my tea, didn't you? But how? I never took my eyes off my cup!
"
Gareth Greengrass[src]
"I assumed a guarded wizard like you wouldn't. That's why I put it in your milk instead. Now it's my turn to get some answers..."
Hermione Granger[src]
