Wedding Announcement

Wedding Announcement

Daily Prophet, dated June of 2006: “Miss Penelope Padgett and Mr. Grim Fawley were wed this past Sunday in West Bromwich. Both Padgett and Fawley work within the Deparment of Magical Law Enforcement at the Ministry of Magic.” Attached is a picture of Penelope and Grim - Penelope enthusiastically kissing Grim's cheek while he blushes and looks away from the camera.

Grim was pleasant, but painfully quiet, and Penelope was... well, ambition's always been a priority amongst Slytherins, hasn't it?
And then, suddenly they had two children! I love that photo in the Prophet. They look so happy.

Silver Locket

Silver Locket

A small silver locket, slightly tarnished from wear, on the inside of the locket is an inscription:“My strength. My heart. My life. G & P.”

I remember the two of them were very private about their relationship, at first.
It was a bit scandalous, actually. A workplace romance... Penelope was older than Grim. Several years, if I recall.
But it turns out that they were both more compatible than any of us gave them credit for.

Note from Grim

Note from Grim

A hand written note in Grim's writing, addressed to Penelope: “I've always been the one on the side, looking in on everyone else's adventures. But you're right… I have a lot to offer. So I'm going to do it… I'm going to apply to be an Unspeakable. You've got me convinced. I am bloody qualified! It's time to get in the game, right? It's time I had an adventure of my own.”

I knew Penelope well and when she mentioned it I thought she was daft... But then, I thought about it...

Grim Fawley has more magical talent in his little finger than most of us do in our whole bodies. He was a fit.

Grim's Suitcase

Grim's Suitcase

An old, tattered suitcase, the leather on the edges scuffed down to reveal the stretched canvas underneath. The worn nameplate on the top of the case reads “G. M. Fawley”. The case is empty inside.

Grim never talked much about his childhood.
I can't imagine what that must have been like, living in orphanages.
Seems like a horrible way to grow up, but he never seemed affected by anything... Until he lost Penelope.

Grim’s School Record

Grim's School Record

A listing of Grim Fawley's achievements as a student at Hogwarts, probably once attached to his CV. It details Fawley's excellent work as a student, receiving five Outstandings and one Exceeds Expectations on his N.E.W.T.s.

Grim Fawley was an outstanding student. A Hufflepuff through and through.
He applied to the Ministry's research wing. If I recall correctly, I wrote him a glowing recommendation.
We were very happy to welcome him into the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.
He had qualified to be an Auror if he wanted, but I think he preferred more academic problem solving.

Fawley Urn

Fawley Urn

A porcelain urn, covered in a thin layer of dust. The lid is slightly chipped, with an inscription: “Lucretia and Marshall Fawley. Loving mother and father.”

Mr. Fawley's parents were killed during the Second Wizarding War, while he was a student at Hogwarts. He was in my Transfiguration class.
He was a second year when we were forced to defend the school against Lord Voldemort. He was too young and was sent away.
I have always feared he had a very personal lesson in the horrors of war.
