Gellert Grindelwald gets a lot more than he bargained for when he visits Great Aunt Bathilda.
Written for Crimson Quill's New Beginnings Challenge
Gellerd Grindelwald, the second darkest wizard of all time. How did he learn of the Deathly Hallows? How did he rise to power? How was Albus Dumbledore able to defeat him? And why, at the end of his life, did he try to protect the one who had locked him away?
A second later, the fire released him into light. In front of him, a village, and standing before it with wand raised, laughing as it burned, a man. The sky was streaked with orange and purple, the last remnants of day. The man turned slowly, and piercing blue eyes met for the first time since that night in Godric's Hollow. So many years had passed, but each recognised the other in an instant.

Albus finally confronts Gellert.
"It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends,” Albus Dumbledore once said. He, more than anyone, knew the truth of that.
Quote from page 221 of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by JK Rowling.
That summer was your fairytale, Albus, your flight from reality.
This is your story.
Yours, and sometimes his.

History is written by the victors, to their specifications. Not all of history fits within them.
These are those parts which do not.

He has to surrender, Dumbledore thought to himself. The last thing Dumbledore wanted to do was duel Grindelwald himself, but there were lives at stake and he was the only one with the power to stop him. For too long he had put off the inevitable, hoping constantly that someone else would step up and do what he had been too afraid to do. Now, however, he realised how foolish he had been to put old feelings first and allow them to cloud his judgement.
Based on 'Ten Duel Commandments' from the musical 'Hamilton'.

For the greater good, that's what they said. They say that I won't have to hide away from the world anymore, that I would be safe and accepted. They don't seem to understand that I'm dangerous, I will never be accepted by people. I need to be kept hidden to protect people, so that I don't hurt them - hurt them like I hurt mum.
