Dumbledore up and died, and nobody knows how or why or what was he was doing going after Grindelwald alone?
Tom Riddle was planning on playing a long game. He was going to bide his time and become the most magically powerful wizard that time had ever known, and then he was going to crush Dumbledore into dust and rule over the British Isles forever.
But then his biggest rival conveniently gets himself murdered, throwing WWII-era Wizarding Britain into chaos, and the stage is set for Tom Riddle and his friends to swoop in and save the day. Or something like that.
Tom Riddle isn't good, but goodness didn't really hold its own against the Dark Lord now did it?
Tom Riddle-centered "for want of a nail" story of political intrigue and a violent war. Filled with dark magic and old magic and hardly any familiar faces or places. What does a wizarding war look like when one side is trying to destroy the International Statute of Secrecy and the Muggle Second World War is just about to end?
