Together In Life And Death.

It is the last year at Hogwarts for Harry, Ron and Hermione. With Dumbledore gone, no one really knows what this year is going to be like. One thing they know for sure is that like every year, something is bound to happen. Especially now that Voldemort is back and more powerful then before.
I hope you'll enjoy reading this fan fiction and any kind of feedback/constructive critisism will be taken on board :) don't be shy to let me know what you think.


7. Transformation

Harry, Ron and Hermione reached the Transfiguration class just a few minutes before the class was supposed to start. They sat down, opened their books and found professor McGonnagal missing.

"It's not like the professor to be late" said Hermione eyeing her wristwatch.

"I agree. The class has been on for 5 minutes already and she's still not here" Harry's voice sounded concerned.

"Wait. But now we can be late too" Ron smiled "if she doesn't have to be here on time, why should we."

"Oh, Ronald you're so immature!"

All of a sudden the door opened and a a tabby cat with square markings around its eyes came in, followed by a large white wolf. The whole class started to whisper.

"That's enough class" said the well-known sharp voice. McGonnagal had taken her normal form and stood in front of the class "I'm terrbily sorry, I'm late, but we had a little dicussion on what to teach you today and we thought we'd cover Animagi."

With those words the white wolf disappeared and Kelly walked next to McGonnagal.

"I believe you all know who an Animagus is and how hard it is to become one." Kelly sounded tired and nervous, but Harry could have probably just imagined it.

"Now, you must face the fact that many of you-"

"And probably most of you" Kelly cut McGonnagal off "can't do it. Not now, not ever. It's very skilled magic and is not to be fooled around with. It is a power not to be taken lightly and it's consequences will be severe if anything goes wrong. I advise you all to think twice if you really want to try it." she glanced her eyes over the class. Noone said a word and as she looked at Draco, he turned his eyes away and stared at his desk. Hermione was the first to raise her hand.

"Yes, miss Granger?"

"Are we allowed to learn it in the classroom? I mean, what happens if something goes wrong with any of us?" she sounded really scared.

"Actually it's not approved by the Ministry, but we know how to handle everything" McGonnagal tried to force herself confident.

"Now, who wants to learn it?"

A few hands rose. Harry's, Ron's, Seamuse's, Draco's, Blaise's, Lavender's and Hermione's too eventually.

"Well then, let's get started. First we'll learn the basics. All of you. Knowledge is always good, it's the practical part that only those 7 students will attempt. Open your notes and start writing." McGonnagal gave Kelly a conserned look and turned to the students. She started to explain everything starting with the dangers and all the time pointed out how important is focusing.

Meanwhile, Kelly thought back on the conversation they had in Dumbledore's office.

[i]"Has power already struck you? Think a little! Their just children! You can't expect them to achieve what you have! It's outrageous!" McGonnagal had really lost her nerve.

"You sound just like that one time, when Matt brought that baby dragon home. Remember?" Kelly couldn't help laughing.

"Yes, but then Dumbledore was here to make sure everything was safe! You're not that skilled yet!"

"But I learned everything from him. Are you saying he wasn't skilled?"

"I'm not sayin that! I'm saying that you don't have his experience! Kelly, listen to me" McGonnagal had sat down "you can't put the students lives at risk just because you want to."

"That's why I'm letting them choose. Those who want to learn, will be taught. Those who don't want to risk, will be able to watch" Kelly stood up "we 'ought to be going now, class has already started."

"I just hope you know what you're doing" McGonnagal said right before they left the office.[/i]

"- that's why consentration is so important." was all Kelly heard about the lecture.

"Now, remember to clearly focus on the animal you want to be."

"Wait! I didn't hear if the professor told you that or not, but you can choose the animal only once! You can't change it later, so you'll have to choose wisely."

Everyone were turning to their notes to find the most suitable animal. After five long minutes they were looking back up.

"Are you absolutely sure you have the right animals?" was Kelly curious.

"Yes!" the answers were clear.

"Well then, miss Granger, you go first" McGonnagal smiled softly.

Hermione took one step forward, closed her eyes and pictured it in her head. "Anilus Mila" she whispered. Nothing happened.

"It's okay, miss Granger, you can open your eyes, there's nothing wrong with you."

She opened her eyes and saw a mirror in front of her. She was perfectly normal just her hair was orange and red.

"A fox, I presume." guessed Kelly.

Hermione nodded.

"Good choice. You'll manage it eventually. Now it's your turn." Kelly pointed to the next person.

He walked in front of the class, looked at Kelly and in less than a minute, there was a black eagle at his place.

"Very good" said Kelly disgustedly "you've been taught well."
