The Slytherin Scandal: Year Two

Sirius Black, a world renounced murderer, is an animagus. He is on the loose and for some reason is going to Hogwarts. But after Lea meets Sirius, she's not sure if all those things are true.

Things begin to get odd when Lea finds out that the new DADA professor is an old friend of Sirius'. On the first day back, she also learns her teacher's worst and most hated secret. What happens when those two meet and an old friend comes back from the dead?


5. First Day Back and a Bogart's Here

Lea woke up to find that someone had decided to turn her hair purple. She wasn't sure how they did it, how to reverse it or how to prevent it from happening again. Not that she was exactly upset, purple was her favorite color after all.

Everyone looked at her when she entered the Great Hall. Lupin had to hide a smile behind his hand as he saw  her walk in, hair braided as if nothing was amiss.

Lupin looked at Severus to see him eye Lea.

Lea sat down at the Slytherin table, away from everyone. Draco came up behind her.

"You seem to be having a very good morning. Did you like my present," he asked her.

Lea turned to look him in the eye. "You mean my hair color? I actually like it, thanks Draco. Purple is my favorite color after all," she replied turning to eat.

When her back was to Draco once again, she felt a sharp poke of a wand being gabbed on her back. She turned as Draco left.

Her first class was DADA, Charms, then Transfiguration, Care of Magical Creatures, Muggle Studies and Potions. She decided that she wanted to see how wizards defined and what they thought about muggle devices. Plus, it was an easy class for her.

All of her classes, save for Charms, with Ravenclaw, and Muggle Studies, which was with Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff (she was the only Slytherin),was with Gryffindor. She really wanted to get to Care of Magical Creatures. Sure that it would be interesting.

The first class of the day was probably the most nerve racking for everyone. Professor Lupin decided to take them on a little field trip. They were in an abandoned class room just off of the Great Hall with a large cupboard in the center of the far wall.

Peeves had to be shooed out of the room. The only reason he did leave was because Lupin had used the gum that Peeves had put in the key hole, to soot up his nose.

"Right, now gather around me, if you will. Good, today we are going to be practicing against what's called a bogart. Does anyone know what they do," Lupin asked scanning the room for a hand. Hermione's was up first.

"Yes, Ms. Granger."

"Bogarts are shape shifters, they transform into what frightens you the most," Hermione said rather fast.

"Correct, ten points to Gryffindor. Now a bogart can not physically harm you, though it can immobilize through fear.

"The easiest way to render one defenseless is more difficult than it sounds. You must laugh. The best way to do this is to turn your worst fear into something funny and be sure to have someone else with. Can anyone tell me why," Lupin asked. Again Hermione's hand was the first up.

"Because with more than one person around, it won't know what to turn into," she said briskly.

"Correct. I once saw a bogart try to scare two people at once. One person was scared of mummies, the other of slugs. It turned into a half slug half mummy thing. Which, as you can imagine, was not close to being terrifying.

"Now, to make your worst fear into something funny, you must think of something and use a simple spell. Lets practice, without wand for the moment. Say 'Ridiculous'."

Everyone said it together for another two minutes. "Good, I think we're ready to try. May I have a volunteer? Neville, what about you," Lupin asked.

Neville tried very hard to disappear with no luck. "Come on, there's nothing to fear," Lupin said encouragingly as he pulled Neville forward.

"Now, Neville, what scares you the most," Lupin asked him.

Neville whispered something that even Lupin couldn't hear. "I'm sorry what was that," he asked Neville.

"Professor Snape," Neville said in a terrified voice. Everyone laughed, except Lea and Lupin. Lupin seemed to be thinking about something, not bothered by what scares Neville the most.

Lea thought that Neville had a good point. Severus could be the most frightening person on the planet if he wanted to be. She ha seen it happen many times when she started Legilimency training with him.

"You live with your grandmother correct," Lupin asked. Neville nodded. "Okay, here's what I want you to do," and he whispered something into his ear. Neville smiled nervously at him.

"Now, everyone gather in a circle around Neville," Lupin told them. Everyone formed a large half circle around Neville. "Now when I count to three, Professor Snape will walk out of the cupboard. Neville remember what I told you. One..... Two...... Three!" The cupboard door opened with a squeak.

Out of the door came Severus, walking towards Neville. Neville raised up his wand and stuttered though the spell. As soon as Neville said it, Severus was no longer in his usual black robes but in and old lady's type of clothes. He wore a full outfit made out of fur with a stuffed vulture hat on his head. Lea giggled while everyone else laughed.

The laughter pushed the bogart back into the cupboard. Enlightened by Neville's success, everyone wanted to try. Lea held back letting everyone else go in front.

"Good job Neville, ten points to Gryffindor. Now, take a few minutes to think of what scares you the most," Lupin told them.

What did scare me the most, Lea asked herself. She thought of everything that had ever creeped her out, the dark, no one believing her, and even creepy people. After a while she thought of the dementor.

It didn't matter though because she was just after Harry, who was stopped by Lupin from facing the bogart. Lupin stepped I don't of him and the bogart turned into a full moon. He quickly dealt with it and dismissed the class. Lea pitied Lupin and his huge secret.
