Summary: Scent is one of the strongest senses tied to memory.

The flashback hit him hard, like running into a wall. And like a wall, it was solid and unyielding. The only thing he could do was ride it out.

The smell was what brought him back. The charred, twisted metal. The scorched stone. The wood, fabric, man-made polymers, all burnt beyond recognition. He was in London and the bombs were falling. A powerful wizard, yes, but he was still helpless to save those around him.

Blinking, he came back to the present, and surveyed the smoldering remains of the village. Again, there was that smell, and again he was helpless.
