The makeshift radio station operating from Remus Lupin’s old haunt in a creepy little village north of wizarding Manchester had become Lee Jordan’s home in the last months since the war had begun in earnest. He loved it, being a hub of information and light in a dark world, and was damn good at it.
Each night, he read his cast into the microphone, with Fred coordinating the guests and George standing at the switchboard shooting defense spells at the green lights occasionally when someone tired to intercept the program.
Tonight, though, when he signed off, telling his ever-growing body of Potterwatch listeners the password for next week (Orion) - George was grinning ear to …well, grinning anyway.
“Guess how many people listened tonight,” he said, looking at Fred with a glint in his eye before focusing back on Lee.
“Dunno. Are we back down to twelve hundred?” Lee asked, running his hand over the back of his neck, like he always did when preparing for news he didn’t want to hear.
“Two thousand,” George answered instead. “Two thousand listeners. Well done, Lee.”
