Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 The Appointment

I am absolutely useless at thinking up titles for stories. That was the best I could do. As it indicates, this is the story of Cornelius Fudge's time as Minister. I originally just intended to write a one-shot about his reaction to seeing Voldemort and his being replaced as Minister, but it wouldn't work, so I decided to write about the whole of his time as Minister. Most of what happens in this story will be known to readers of Harry Potter, but will be written as Fudge sees it.

7 Careers

Sorry this chapter is quite disjointed, but I have to get through the next year or so in order to get to the events of The Chamber of Secrets. The next chapter should be better.

10 The search for Harry Potter

Cornelius is concerned to hear that Harry has run away from his guardians and sets out to find him before Sirius Black does. I apologise that it has taken longer me longer to post this chapter than I said it would.

11 No Success.

The search for Sirius Black continues without success. Some of the characters listed for this chapter are only mentioned and do not appear in person.

2,509 3
12 An Embarrassment for the Ministry.

This chapter describes Black's capture and escape as Cornelius sees it. It was quite difficult to write as the sequence of events as Fudge sees them is quite different from the order in which Harry sees them.

13 The World Cup

The Quidditch World Cup takes place in this chapter, creating a good deal of work for the Ministry.
