Ever since the attack, Dorjee had found himself increasingly confused on what he thought about werewolves. He trusted Julian and knew his Ravenclaw friend would never intentionally hurt him - at least not outside the confines and rules of a friendly duel. But did you ever really know for sure that nothing could happen? The whole basis of a werewolf’s existence seemed to be to force the inflicted into extreme violence against others once a month and that wasn’t the type of thing the Gryffindor could condone, even knowing it wasn’t on most werewolves’ free will that this was done.

 

So it was with earnest curiosity that Dorjee decided to enter the contest he heard Trudy Veritas announce on the radio. Sure, she was a gossip and fear monger at best, but maybe she had someone he could talk to who’d know more about this and could help him get some answers.

It wasn’t a secret that Behati practically worshipped the ground that Trudy Veritas walked on. The woman represented everything that Bee felt was needed at times like this: truth, justice, and a keen eye for dealing with unreasonable people who wanted to close their eyes and stuff their ears and pretend that bad people didn’t exist. Trudy’s imprisonment had been unfair, and Bee had expressed as much to her parents. They’d listened, even if they didn’t really know who Trudy was.

 

Now was her chance to meet the woman in question and actually have an adult conversation with someone who cared about the issues. So, it was no surprise when she put her name in the raffle.

 

Fingers crossed she thought.

Margot listened to the advertisement, and she definitely realized that it would be a way to get her name out there. Power grabs were everything, and this definitely felt like something that would get her out there to become the future Minister for Magic. Or well, the queen of the universe.

 

It was something that she wanted. Everyone else wanted it to, right? The only problem was Margot didn't know who was going to do the entry for her. Her first thought was Ralph, but how was she going to break it to him that she didn't know his actual name despite hearing it several times over the past three years.

 

She stared at the quill and paper on the desk and she groaned as she picked up the quill with her right hand and started writing her entry. 

 

"Where's my bloody intern to do this stuff for this for me? This is so below me."

Ellery had no idea who this Trudy person was or why anyone would want to meet her, but there was one thing that the young Slytherin did know: she liked to win stuff. Contests, sweepstakes, raffles…all of it. So when she heard on the radio that there was this competition to meet someone, all Ellery truly comprehended was the word competition.

 

The rest of the deets didn't really matter.

 

So she totally had this in the bag 😎; she could just ask Bones who this Trudy lady was...you know, later. After she won.

Ollie had a LOT of things she would like to say to Trudy Veritas. “I’d love to give her a piece of my mind,” she had said when her voice had ruined her breakfast that day, but then a realization struck. If she entered this tournament and won, she could actually tell the woman exactly what she thought of the condemnation of her friends and her role in stirring up the hatred against them.

The only reason he was entering this mess was so that he had it on camera and every other piece of surveillance equipment when he revealed Trudy Veritas was a manipulator of single father wizards, who used her less than impressive squish to cultivate trust and interest in others while trying to get them for everything they had! 🤬


Ahem. 
 

Not that he was going to start walking around spilling that story to anyone who wanted to listen. At least not untill he'd consumed a bathtub of vodka anyway.

Adrina didn’t want to meet the woman because she was a fan.  Hex no, she wanted to look the woman in the face, the one who’d turned the school into the chaotic insanity that it was and tell her exactly how horrible of a person she thought she was.  

 

Maybe it wouldn’t amount to much in the end, but at least she would have said something.  Or, at the very least she could test out the new log launching spell she’d learned by launching one at the hags face.

Atticus hadn't known about Trudy's broadcast until he had returned to school after it had aired. Because of that, he had questions. He hadn't been able to ask them at the time. So he might as well see what she was up to now. Maybe he could at least get information for the other werewolves at Hogwarts. He had heard that the woman hated them so maybe meeting one would change her mind. Be doubted it but he could try and see what happened.

"Oh my god, move!" shouted Bones, pushing through whatever was in her way when she heard the broadcast. "Trudy!" she hollered. "Trudy, it's me, it's Bones! I can't wait to meet you, Trudy Veritaaaaas!" Bones did not realize that this short little advert had been pre-recorded and Trudy was not actually there to hear her call.

[NOT an entry. Just reacting.]

 

As much as Paige wanted to burn all the copies of Trudy's book, she knew she couldn't do that. She would have to get a copy for the Hogwarts Library. Librarians took an oath against censorship so she couldn't let her own bias get in the way. With a sigh, she filled out a form and sent it off so that a copy of the book would arrive when it was released. At least she didn't have to read it.

Harmony was mostly curious as to what would happen if Trudy recognized exactly who she was, and what she would say to her if she actually won the contest. Her mind was telling her that this was not a good idea, that she could be worse off in the public eye if she won this. However, her instincts told her that if she did win, Trudy would be in for a very interesting meeting, that's for sure. 

 

Plus, the pages of her book would be useful to line Jean's cage. 

 

Harmony eagerly sent in her entry.

Davis didn't really have a desire to meet the infamous witch who exposed his teammates and yearmates, but he also didn't have any desire to allow someone who actually liked her to win either.  The way he figured it, if he entered and happened to win, it wouldn't give airtime to someone hurting victims of an atrocious act.

Phillip didn’t actually want to meet Trudy either.  However, a lie could get halfway around the world before the truth had gotten its boots on.  But….he figured there was a way to manipulate the situation in order to expose the aurors’ unjust treatment of … well, mainly werewolves but everybody, really.  Mainly werewolves  in particular though.

Poetic Justice. Meeting the monster who outed his daughter as a werewolf in person would bring Hugo closer to a sense of a justness. Why exactly had she done it – aside from the pretense of protecting the public? As a lead editor on the Quibbler, he could easily feign this as an interview for the publication – conflict of interest be damned.

Amelia fought against the rapid beating of her heart, as she entered the contest. The Slytherin 100% believed in what Trudy Veritas stood for, and the opportunity to speak with her about her unjustness was something that she just couldn't pass up. Amy didn't trust the werewolves and she felt a great deal of gratitude toward Trudy that she knew just who they were. It would be a dream come true if she won the contest.

 

Though, truthfully, her parents could just use their position to get her a meeting if she didn't.

Jack Dare had never actually heard Trudy Veritas on the wireless, but he'd heard of her. He knew that she was the terrible woman who outed all the Hogwarts werewolves and spread hatred and lies about what they were like. She was certainly no one who Jack admired or would normally wish to spend time with. However, since founding Pals and Allies of Werewolves. Jack was doing a lot of reading about advocacy and support groups and being an instrument for positive social change. One of the latest books was called How to Turn Your Enemies into Allies. If anyone was an enemy Jack figured it was people like Trudy.

 

According to this book, all Jack had to do was practice empathyfind common ground, and project positivity and love. Jack was certain he could do all of those things, plus he was extremely articulate and objectively adorable. As a Hogwarts student who was personally familiar with all the werewolves (at least a little) he could present himself as a friend of werewolves and explain to the world (or at least to Ms Veritas) how nice they all were. He might have to stretch the truth slightly about a few of them, but Jack had a way with words. He felt confident he could figure it out.

Unjust imprisonment? 

 

Something about this Trudy person's way of speaking immediately put Saroyan off, but he came back around at the mention of that. He could surely sweep aside his immediate bias to talk to someone who'd really been through the ringer like that—and, maybe, he'd finally get some answers about this ministry business that hired out cops and had intimidating women make them make promises to be nice. (Which, honestly, Saro supported but only on principle and not as a rule.) Whoever Trudy Veritas was, it seemed like she'd have some entertaining things to say.

It was no secret Trudy Veritas was high up on the list of people Jack would not hesitate of hurting if anything ever went wrong on a full moon so when the opportunity presented to drop her name into a contest to meet the hag, Jack didn't hesitate to do just that. If the witch wanted to talk about her imprisonment and justice then Jack was going to show her some. 

 

Sometimes revenge was justice.

Aster didn't agree with Trudy at all. In fact she hated the woman, but she wanted to meet her to give her a piece of her mind. The woman was a terrible person who hurt her friends and worst of all lied through her teeth. Aster wished nothing more than for to rot in jail. She couldn't believe that she was able to have a stupid contest too. Still, she was entering, and if she won she couldn't wait to tell Trudy what she really thought about her.

Edward wasn’t sure, but he had heard his older sister bang on about this Trudy lady and he figured that she must have been a fan. He never made the connection that it was because this witch had leaked the names of innocent children. Plus a book was good, his sister liked reading and, if he won, she could have that for her birthday.

The more Kay had read about Trudy and listened to her show, the more certain she'd become that the only way to change her mind would be to meet face-to-face. It was easy for someone to list names off a piece of paper, but maybe she'd reconsider some of the things she'd said if she could look one of them in the eyes and talk it out.

 

She didn't know if she thought Miss Veritas's imprisonment was 'unjust' or not, but she'd sure let her rant about it. Then maybe they could have a heart-to-heart about some of what it was like to be a werewolf, too. 'Truth, politics, and drama', right?

 

Even if Trudy didn't want to bond, Robin had brought up a good point in P.A.W.--maybe they could start their own radio show here at school. This could be the best chance she'd get at finding out how to put something like that together. Maybe Trudy didn't even have to know she was a werewolf! She could go by a pseudonym, like a superhero secret identity. Like... Rusty Reddington. Then, once they'd become friends, she could whip out her Registry Card and say, “Surprise! Your new BFF is a werewolf! See how it doesn't change anything? What a wild and eye-opening twist!”

 

--Or, if none of that worked, maybe she'd finally get the prize Miss Veritas owed her at least.

TV: And the luck winner is @Aster Darling! I can't wait to meet you! I will also be sending out free, signed copies of my book to 20 other lucky winners, who will receive it in the mail this week!

 

Thank you all for entering! Aster, please expect a PM with more details on claiming your prize. Everyone else who has posted would receive a signed copy of Trudy's book. If opened at Hogwarts, the book will record data on wherever they're taken. Observant readers may find this data buried in the appendix.

Even though she didn’t win the contest (she was super bummed about that) at least she now had a signed copy of Trudy’s book.
