What If: A Harry Potter Fanfiction

Most people never knew that Sirius Black had a daughter. Understandable, because Meadow Black was kept in an anti-aging spell for 36 years. Finally, she has awoken. Finally, she is off to Hogwarts. Finally, her life has begun. But will it end soon after beginning?


25. Luna

"Did you hear about the new professor?" Scorpius hissed to Meadow one cold early-March morning.

"No." Meadow replied. "What about it?"

"She's an old friend of the Potters and Weasleys. She's also the wife of the greatest Quidditch player of all time." scoffed Margo.

"Rafael Ramirez?" Meadow asked, remembering who her idol had been before the spell.

"No!" laughed Albus. "He's in his seventies! Luna's married to Viktor Krum!"

"Viktor . . . Krum?"

Meadow had never heard of Krum before. Her friends laughed for a little while until they realized she wasn't joking. "Viktor Krum's been working with pro Quidditch since he was sixteen." Scorpius explained, exasperated. 

"Sixteen? I thought seventeen was the legal age . . ."

"Without parental permission, maybe, but his folks were all for it." the glassy look in Albus's eyes told Meadow that he had idolized Viktor Krum most of his life.

"So the new professor is the wife of a Quidditch star? That's it?" 

Her friends stared at her, appalled. Meadow rolled her eyes. "I'm late, I better get going." she finally smirked, leaving her friends behind.

She walked through the hall, trying to figure out where Transfiguration was - she always forgot. Suddenly, she almost ran into a short woman with pale blonde hair.

"I'm sorry!" Meadow apologized, helping the woman up.

"Oh, it's quite all right." her voice had a dreamy quality. "What's your name?"

"Meadow Black."

"I'm Professor Krum . . . but I prefer Professor Lovegood." Professor Lovegood smiled and shook her hand warmly, then gasped and backed away.

"What's wrong?" Meadow asked, hurt.

"My dear child . . . you are a gloodelysplorch!" Professor Lovegood looked startled and fearful.

"A . . . a what?"

"A gloodelysplorch!" Lovegood could see that Meadow was confused and startled, so she calmed down quickly. "Not a malicious one, though, probably abandoned by your parents . . ."

"Professor, what are you talking about?!"

"Miss Black, how old are you? Adding on the years you were under the anti-aging spell?"

"Forty seven, almost forty eight . . ." Meadow's voice was close to fading.

"When were your parents born?"

"1960 . . . I think . . ."

"Just as I thought! You can't exist, your parents would have only been ten years old when you were born! You are a gloodelysplorch! A humanoid creature capable of taking the shape of anything, and capable of messing with memories without realizing it!"
