The Life of Albus Severus Potter *Harry Potter FanFiction*

All is well...or so it seems. The wizarding world is hiding something, and no one knows what. Albus Severus Potter is just an ordinary boy with extraordinary parents. He loves his new life at Hogwarts, but what will happen when his entire world is turned upside down and the school is permanantly bordered off due to a suspected murder? Will he choose to keep his sister as a friend, or keep her safe?

This is a story after what you read (or watch!) in the Deathly Hallows, the story of Harry's family.


3. Lily's Determination

The breeze ruffled through her pretty, free hair. The little girl let the world fly by as she sat in her favourite Willow tree. Nothing could stop her. She would go to Hogwarts. It was her destiny. No one would know, no one would ever find out. All little Lily wanted was a glimpse of the beautiful castle, the breath taking Great Hall with the floating candles. She wanted to truly experience being sorted, into Gryffindor, preferably.  There’s only so much that you can imagine, anyway. What about the common room, the dormitory, the classrooms? They may seem normal for Hogwarts students, but for Lily Luna Potter, it is something that seems very special. She might never visit Diagon Alley…Not even her brothers couldn’t imagine never visiting Flourish and Blotts to buy magic books…Never going to Eeylops Owl Emporium or Gringotts, never dropping in at the Leaky Cauldron. But worst of all, never purchasing his first wand at Ollivanders. It crushed poor Lily’s heart to know that maybe there was no chance of her ever learning magic, like her parents and brothers.  What about Hogsmeade? She had dreamed about visiting the place with her friends, laughing and buying bagful’s of succulent sweets from Honeydukes. Albus had brought her a bag of sweets from Honeydukes, once. They had been in his suitcase for at least a few weeks, but Lily didn’t mind. They tasted gorgeous, mouth-watering. She soon grew a bit addicted, so Ginny temporarily banned her daughter from the major source of sugar. Lily wished she was older. Then she could have gone to Hogwarts. At least her cousin Hugo would be in the same position. Knowing something like that made her feel slightly better – but only very slightly. Lily and Hugo would make it through this disaster, together.


Her mother and father, Harry and Ginny, strolled out into the lawn cautiously, holding hands. Nothing could be said about the dullness in their eyes. There was no soul, or spirit. Ginny and Harry were just as heartbroken as their children. After all, Hogwarts was their own home when they were younger, and they thought that James, Albus and Lily deserved to experience the thrill of Hogwarts for themselves – all the way until the very end. Harry, an auror himself, wanted his children to get decent wizarding jobs. James and Albus both desperately wanted to follow their father’s footsteps. Lily was not sure, but the little, cute girl deserved a chance to go to Wizarding School and decide a career that suited her perfectly.


Lily clambered down the branches and niftily jumped to the long, luscious grass to talk to her parents. James and Albus followed after, both looking gloomy.

“We need to talk, kids.” Harry said, gathering up his three children. Both Harry and Ginny were going to struggle saying what needed to be said.

“This might upset you, but you have a right to know.” Ginny followed on. All three children looked uneasy.

“It’s OK, dad, mum. We already know. I’m not going to Hogwarts next year.” Lily shyly whimpered, sounding as if she might break down and crumble into tears. Harry and Ginny looked a little bit bewildered.

“But…How did you know? We wanted to break this news to you gently, so you wouldn’t be so upset…” Harry slowed down his speech. Lily was about to blurt out the truth, but after she noticed Albus looking extremely guilty, she abruptly shut her mouth again. However James, always looking for an excuse to get his little brother in some kind of trouble, no matter what mood he was in.

“It was Albus! He was eavesdropping. What a naughty boy!” James laughed in an evil tone. Albus sighed with annoyance as his parents looked at him sternly.

“Why, Al? We taught you that it’s rude to listen in to other people’s private conversations…It can sometimes get you into serious trouble. But James, stop trying to blame your brother for everything. You could get him into serious trouble one day. It’s also rude to snitch.” Ginny tutted. Albus was smug and stuck his tongue out at his cunning older brother. James just mouthed ‘Shut up’ and started heading back inside.

“Yes,” Harry agreed. “I wonder how you survived so long at Hogwarts, James. Do you snitch on your friends at school?” He continued. James swung his head round. “Of course not! I save the snitching for Al, and Al only!” James sniggered, before running inside.

“But mum, dad…I really need to know. I only heard the bit about us not returning to school. So…what happened, what’s the story behind this preposterous precaution?” Albus asked, intrigued and slightly worried. Harry and Ginny exchanged unsure glances.

“Brace yourself.” Harry began, and went into the tale of Carlotta Daniels. Albus’ eyes were wide and his jaw dropped. Lily turned a strange shade of white and even James came outside to hear the story.
