the site plot
It's 1950. It's been several years since Gellert Grindelwald was defeated and World War Two came to an end. The Minister of Magic is Wilhelmina Tuft, a good decent sort of witch with a cheery disposition. She was elected into office in 1948, at the beginning stages of the infectious giddiness that swept the Western world. Her Advisor is her son, Ignatius Tuft, and a vast majority of her duties are passed along to him in great confidence. And while she is a kind woman, she is an oblivious one as well. She does not see the subtle changes happening within the Ministry, nor does she realize the culprit behind such movements. She, and the entirety of the wizarding community, has become subdued by hopefulness for peace and prosperity, making it easier for laws to be passed and announced as something good or wholesome.
The puppeteer is invisible, his name barely whispered by even those who follow him. But follow they do, positioning themselves within the Ministry of Magic strategically so that every move can be monitored and adjusted accordingly. He however, has not taken a role among the politicians and law makers. His personal project is closer to the heart and focused on gaining the youth, on taking over the only place he felt at home. Tom Riddle was granted the position of Defense Against the Dark Arts professor in 1950, after being declined in 1945. His persistence and bruised ego led him away for five long years, where he gained great power and many supporters. However, he did not reveal himself or his intentions to anyone untrustworthy. His known position in the world is that of an advocate for peace and a role-model for many students. He now resides within the castle walls, waiting patiently for his chance to take the school and the Ministry for his own gain and purpose. Each day he moves a pawn, closing the gap between himself and power.
