Friendly reminder that the Death Eaters had a seating chart.
Like, they all had specific spots in the circle and when some of them were missing they left spaces for those people because they knew exactly where their spots were.
Just imagine Voldemort pouring over that thing like “Dammit. I can’t put Alecto next to Crabbe or she’ll spend the whole time staring at his biceps… And speaking of Crabbe, he and Goyle really should be next to each other, so that they can help each other follow everything. And maybe I’ll put Nott next to them just in case. Nott’s patient enough with them… And Black is dead so I can just put Avery’s boy in that spot. Should I give away traitors’ spots? That seems like bad luck. Maybe I should just close the ranks there and open up a new spot… Hm… Rodolphus and Bella have been next to each other in the circle for years, but they’re getting married. Should I separate married Death Eaters? No, Rod and Bella will be fine. But if I keep them together, does that mean I have to keep all married couples together? No. I never said that I’d be fair with them. But Rabastan! I can’t put Rabastan next to Barty or they’ll never stop talking…”
Imagine Voldy keeping a paper-copy of the circle in his pocket and studying it before meetings because everyone’s going to be wearing a mask and he can’t risk forgetting someone’s name or mixing two people up.
I just… Death Eater seating chart.
I only had a little bit of class today, but we did a tour of the sets and all the control rooms we’d be using over the course of the year and I am just, wow.
It’s amazing how excited I am for this year.
