[gkymwnwl] Goblet of Fire mashup

Barty Crouch, Jr. does too good a job mimicking Mad-Eye Moody, too good a job at being a good Defence Against the Dark Arts professor.

This can easily be explained in real life by hypothesizing that in an early draft, it was the real Mad-Eye Moody the whole time, then in later drafts the plot required someone to have infiltrated Hogwarts, so the Polyjuice mimicry was added much later, but the original character was not modified much (because it was so good), even though it should have been: the plot would have been much stronger if there were more persistent and consistent hints that Moody was not who he said he was, and he was not fully committed to teaching students Defence Against Dark Arts.

Tell a better story of the DADA instructor being a double agent.
