IC: Lupin Lupin nodded. "Apparition sounds fine, Harry. If you would prefer side-along with me, that is certainly viable as well, but as there as so many of us...it may be difficult to turn at once, and we could perhaps simply use a portkey." Lupin glanced left and right to make sure no one was watching, and picked up a fallen branch from the tree. It was about two feet long, and slender. Lupin pulled out his wand and muttered "Portus". The stick glowed softly for a moment, before returning to its previous state. Holding both it and the wand high, Lupin said, "Now, if everyone will come behind the tree, here, and take hold of this twig, we can be on our way." TAG: All others coming to Number 4, Grimmauld Place. [hr] IC: Umbridge Umbridge was on her third glass of mead, and starting to get over her shock, when with a crack, one of her aurors appeared. She realized with some relief that it was Daleric, the leader. He hastened over, and handed her the wand she had left behind at the Burrow. "Madame Umbridge," he said swiftly. "As per your instructions, the Potter boy has been watched. We believe he is about to depart. We also have evidence of an unauthorized portkey." Umbridge chuckled. "Excellent, Daleric, excellent!" TAG: None, for now... OOC: Sounds fine to me, D_GS.
