Chapter 89: Identifying and Killing Werewolves

Chapter 89: Identifying and Killing Werewolves

 

A few days after Halloween, the whole school was talking about Sirius Black.

 

Discussions were focused on how he managed to infiltrate into the castle. Evan heard people saying that Black is invisible and other things of that sort. Hufflepuff’s Hannah even wrote an article about it as a contribution to the Hogwarts Magical News. She swore to witness Black’s incarnation as a flowering bush.

 

This article was submitted while Evan was not there but it had been rejected by Hermione.

 

Thanks to a series of articles introducing the “Dementors”, since the beginning of the school year, sales of the Hogwarts Magic News had been good, and the “Patronus Charm” issue hit the highest record with a full print of more than two thousand copies.

 

In addition to the school’s wizards, many adult wizards learned about this defensive Charm through the Hogwarts Magic News. Evan had just discovered that so many people never knew about this spell before. He was worried about the overall level of power in the magic world.

 

In addition to the increasing esoteric rumors, there were many changes in the castle.

 

For example, the portrait of Fat Lady, which had been damaged, had been taken from the wall and replaced by a portrait of a fully armed Sir Cadogan and his obese gray pony.

 

No one was happy about this matter. Sir Cadogan spent half his time challenging people and asking them to fight him. The rest of the time was spent on pondering complex and ridiculous passwords. He actually changed his password twice a day

 

As another example, Harry was now under surveillance.

 

The professors walked with him in the corridor for various reasons and various excuses; Percy followed him everywhere, as if he was his guard dog.

 

Black invaded the castle. The most affected should be Peter Pettigrew.

 

Ron told Evan that the rat’s tonic he gave him had no effect. Now, besides drinking water, Scabbers did not eat anything. It stayed in the corner of his bed all day and did not move, as if it were dead.

 

A more accurate description should be that he was waiting for his death. Evan already tested it. The tracing potion was effective; he could feel the rat’s presence whenever he was less than a 100 meters away from him.

 

The next step was to look for opportunities to contact Sirius Black. This would be the end of the year’s event. But the first two failed contacts made Black wary of Evan. He became more cautious and Evan did not know where he was hiding.

 

According to the original story, Black should hide in the Shrieking Shack, but Evan checked after Halloween and he was not there.

 

On Halloween eve, Lupin also saw Black. He knew the Shrieking Shack. With Black’s caution, he could not stay there.

 

Just like Lupin did not trust Black, Black did not trust Lupin either.

 

Twelve years of life in Azkaban left little of his sanity. He didn’t trust Dumbledore. He had only revenge on his mind.

 

Black was now very likely to be hidden in the Forbidden Forest. Evan was not interested in finding a dog all over the woods. He decided to design a plan to bring him out.

 

At the lunch table, Evan saw Crookshanks running out of the auditorium with a big loaf of bread. It suddenly flashed in his mind; maybe he could use it…

 

Hermione’s cat was clever and incomprehensible, and sometimes Evan suspected that it was also an Animagus. It must have become a friend with Sirius Black. The bread he had just taken was for Black.

 

Just as Evan stared at Crookshanks, who had slipped past him, he saw Harry, Ron, and Hermione entering the auditorium with a look of frustration.

 

“You know what Snape told me to do! He actually asked me to wipe the pots in the school infirmary. And I wasn’t even allowed to use magic!” Ron gasped, his fists clenched tightly.

 

“Why can’t Black hide in Snape’s office, so he could take care of him for us!”

 

“How, Ron! Don’t the 3rd year students have the Defense Against the Dark Arts class this morning?” Colin asked. “How could you be punished by Snape?”

 

“Good question, Colin!” Ron yelled heavily. “I actually was punished by Snape in the Defense Against the Dark Arts class in the morning. Then I went to the Potions class in the afternoon and I had to endure him once again. .”

 

“But why?”

 

“Because Snape said Professor Lupin was ill and couldn’t attend classes, this session of Dark Arts defensive was his.” Harry sat down angrily. “Snape must have something to do with this. You guys remember when I said that he had given Professor Lupin a recipe of potion a few days ago? What did he put in that potion?!”

 

Harry’s words were approved by Ron. Evan knew that Snape’s potion was a scorpion venom agent. The potion needed to be taken one week before the full moon night.

 

Today should be the day of Lupin’s transformation. No wonder no one did see him.

 

“Don’t talk nonsense, Harry, why would Snape do this?” Hermione took out her Defense Against the Dark Arts textbook.

 

“He has always wanted to teach this course.” Ron shouted, “Look at what he did in class, he spent half the time criticizing Professor Lupin’s teaching methods and the rest half of class time asking us a strange question!”

 

“What did he ask?”

 

“It was about werewolves, Colin!” Ron turned and said, “Snape has been asking us the way we recognize the werewolf. Hermione knew the answer. But he didn’t let her talk. I asked him: if he didn’t want to hear the answer, why did he keep asking. And that’s why I’ve been punished!”

 

“But there must be a reason for this. Why does he want us to know how to identify werewolves?” said Hermione thoughtfully.

 

“Anything is possible; maybe he was bitten by a crazy werewolf, so he came out of his mind!” Ron said yelling, “I mean check this out. Snape left us with homework that discusses the identification and killing of werewolves. At least two parchment papers. He is absolutely crazy!”

 

“The difference between the werewolf and the real wolf, the symptoms of the werewolf in the human form…” Hermione looked through her Dark Arts defensive textbook.

 

“God, Hermione, you’re not really going to finish the assignment, on how to identify an evil werewolf and kill him?”

 

“The middle finger and the ring finger are the same length, weak, full moon, change of time, fear of…” Hermione ignored him. Her hands quickly crossed through the book. Then it seemed like she found something. She raised her head sharply, and her beautiful chestnut eyes were full of shock.

 

“A werewolf is not necessarily evil, Ron!” Seeing Hermione’s look, Evan knew she had discovered the truth and he sighed. “Wizards usually think that he has no reason and feelings, and that he only knows destruction and Killing, being full of bloodthirsty desires. In fact, this image is incorrect.”

 

“You must know that even a pure hearted person, a person who does not forget to pray at night, will inevitably be transformed into a wolf on a full moon night when exposed to the moonlight.” Evan calmly looked at Hermione, “but he is kind in nature. Just because he is a werewolf, that doesn’t mean we can’t trust him.”

 

“Isn’t it, Evan?!” Hermione asked this question, being troubled. But with his regard, she became less worried.

 

“Yes, I trust him!” Evan nodded.

 

Harry, Ron, and Colin looked at Evan and Hermione. They were confused and they couldn’t understand what the two were saying.

    Yay another chapter.
    Also, TL/Editor, are you aware the previous guy is releasing stuff right after you’ve posted? You should check that because it’s mighty suspicious they are releasing continuously after you’ve posted, leads me to believe foul play, like copied work. But then again that is just speculation, just mentioning it. Also full support on the work a Super Thanks for the chapters =DDDD

    • Translating_Wizard

      Hey, glad you’re enjoying the chaps.
      When releasing this on NU I found his chapters. He’s not copying our work, he’s using Google Translate and not even taking enough time so that the sentences make sense. It’s a shame really :/
      To see an example of this, check out the last paragraph in chapter 84, and compare the two translations.

  • Hello everyone this is Translatin_Otaku. First, I would like to thank you for your comments and support, and YES we’re picking up this great novel, our team specializes in translating Fanfiction novels and this one was on our list from the moment that you guys requested it. But what made us feel more responsible is seeing the nonsense thrown at you by the other one who took it. When I found out he asked you for money and then gave you nothing I really felt offended by this treatment and that’s why J-Otaku and Translating-Wizard who already translated 8 chaps earlier asked me for permission to release this, I immediately agreed. And how did this guy respond? He released the chaps 84 and 85, ones that we have already released and he was in so much hurry that he have you a poorly adjusted machine translation while mentioning again sponsored chaps!
    Here in Translatinotaku.net you will never have to pay to get chapters, we shall never treat this way. Your support keeps us rolling so your satisfaction is our goal! This is the chap 89 and more chaps are on the way. Next month we will open a new Patreon page for Translating_Wizard so make sure to support him like you always do!
    And always stay tuned. We have many more novels and new exciting things on the way (^o^)

      I was a little put off when he was constantly going on about asking for money to unlock chapters. I never much surf the pages on the stuff I read just go straight to the translation and leave, but for this novel I decided to support whomever was working on it since I was such a fan of this type of fanfic, so I started being active on the comment section and learned that on the first release of Library of Time’s chapters that someone had posted a link to somewhere that had all the chapters of this novel completely unlocked with no paywall. I was then a bit surprised when on the next release the TL mentioned again the donations so figuring maybe he like me doesn’t pay much attention to comments, decided to give a thanks and mention the link once more which from what I last checked was not noticed. So I was feeling a little bit less confident on them specially after they promised 1 or 2 chapters a day on their schedule release yet they went over a week with no notice right after that first update and when they came back they went over how they were busy with school, which I totally get but was it too difficult to leave a post about it right after they posted? Anyways I was feeling pretty bummed about this until you guys picked it up so for that I give thanks and promise encouragement every time you post, while I can’t support you financially due to my circumstances, I’m more than happy to give you a thumbs up for your effort and thanks for your work.

      Anyways hope you guys know I appreciate what you’re doing and honestly THANKS. =D

      ps: this was the link to free raws if you guys need it. https://www.piaotian.com/html/8/8361/index.html

      • Translating_Wizard

        Thank you so much for your support. Reading your comments is enough to make us really happy, and to give us the fuel to go on. As Translatin_Otaku have said, we’ll never make you have to pay to get chapters in this site. We will translate all we can, and we’ll keep on posting chapters here and in our respective Patreon accounts. The amount of financial support we get can only contribute to giving you more, never less.

  • Eisenheimnfritz

    Thanks for the chapters and the continuing this series

    • Translating_Wizard

      My pleasure!

  • Brandon Purvis

    I’m very happy to see this novel continued, but I’m extremely bothered, admittedly probably a lot more than I should be, by the fact that the tl keeps calling him Evan when his name is Ivan. Other than me complaining, thank you very much for continuing this novel as I have been keeping a close eye out for months with this.

    • Translating_Wizard

      My pleasure ^^ Glad you’re enjoying the novel.

      Actually, the Kanji used in the story for the protagonist’s name can be read as both. But Evan is of Welsh origins and Ivan is of Slavic origins. Since our protagonist is British, we went with Evan as it should be more accurate. I know you guys are used to him being named Ivan, but we felt that we should translate this story like we’re the 1st ones picking it up. Sorry if that bothered you and I hope you’ll find our work, as a whole, satisfying enough to get you to turn a blind eye to this. Thank you for your support!

      • FightReady2

        I feel like I should support you on the translation and say that we will get used to it and looking forward to more chapters, but it feels weird to support one translator over another so I’ll just let you guys settle it among yourselves if you feel like it.

        • You don’t have to support anyone over anyone. Just relax and enjoy the chapters that will be coming your way. Giving you a superior reading experience is in itself a source of joy for us.

  • AdemK
