[Snape is collected and composed; jaw set, dark eyes flinty, and speaks as resolutely and commandingly as he ever has to a group of first years or OWL students alike. The image of stern task master is somewhat disrupted by Nill peeking around him with wide eyes and wings aflutter-- obviously, she says nothing, while Snape says everything: speech is careful, clipped, and precise, for maxmimum information.]
With the riots going strong, there are those who may not be able to return to the MAC, or other safe havens such as Dr. Solus' clinic. In the event that there are wounded or weary that need respite, we using Miss Nill's church as a current stronghold. We have a mediwitch for the wounded. If any of you can spare the time to bolster our defenses as the night goes on, with the glut sure to be at the hospitals and clinics, we need your help in maintaining a haven for others who need safety from human storm.
If you can make it to the clinic, make that your first priority! We are not undefended. But if you cannot reach the clinic, to defend or take advantage of it, we have space for you at the church.[He gives the address to Nill's church.]
Those who seek to take advantage of us or spread chaos to this church. will be met with unforgiving resistance.
You are warned
