1. New Beginnings

“And so begins another year at Hogwarts”, Albus Dumbledore greeted the students and staff of the school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The freshly sorted first years looked up expectantly at the headmaster as he addressed the school, the returning students thinking of the great feast which was to come after the headmaster's greeting. They sat under the magical night sky of the Great Hall's ceiling. The hall had four long tables for each of the houses, all decorated with glittering gold plates and jeweled goblets that would soon be full of the mouthwatering food and heartwarming drink. 

"But now is not the time for long strenuous speeches so for now I say; nitwit blubber oddment tweak!" Professor Dumbledore said with a smile.

A laugh filled the air as the students dug into their feast. Soon the groans of full bellies and a lull of conversation fell over the crowd. Dumbledore then stood for a second time and addressed the school again. He went over some of the school rules including no admittance into the Forbidden Forest, the banning of Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes, where to sign up for the house Quidditch teams, and the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, Professor Snape. At this point many of the returning students started to rustle in their seats as they knew the headmaster's speech would soon be coming to the end. Instead of sending them to their dormitories, Dumbledore hesitated, looking towards the doors to the Great Hall while stroking his long white beard.

"And so, this concludes our first feast of the school ye-" Professor Dumbledore was cut off as the doors of the Great Hall suddenly opened, a shadow of a bulky figure was cast on the floor of the hall. "Finally" Dumbledore whispered to himself. 

The figure started walking towards the front of the hall and as it moved into the light, a large hooded figure was revealed. They wore wearing a black traveling coat that was obviously weathered by the elements. Covered in dirt and hand sewn patches it was no more than a rag. As the stranger walked past, the students cringed away as there was a horrendous smell coming from it. A mixture of old blue cheese, rotten fish, and manure followed the dark figure like a black cloud. When the figure reached Professor Dumbledore, the headmaster cleared his throat and addressed the students and staff once again. 

"Here at Hogwarts this year we will be hosts to a very special guest. This guest has lived in North America and has been taught the magical arts by a dear friend of mine. Now the time has come to finish their education and reunite with a relative who also attends Hogwarts."

"Hehem" Dumbledore stopped speaking and turned towards the guest's sudden noise. 

"Right, right," Professor Dumbledore started, "You will find no safer place than Hogwarts, you may remove your disguise now."

The hooded guest's shoulders then relaxed, like they had let out a sigh of relief. A hand appeared from the tattered traveling coat grasping a wand. The students watched as the hand waved the wand above the hood of the coat and a few indistinguishable words were muttered. Two beams of light shot out of the tip of the wand, winding their way around the figure's body. A flash of light obstructed the view of the guest and when the light left, there was a completely different person standing where the shady figure stood. Where there was dirt and patches there was now clean lines and colours. The hooded traveler with a limp was replaced with a thin young woman around sixteen. The girl wore knee-high black boots, dark wash jeans and a burgundy long-sleeve shirt. Her medium blonde hair was pulled back halfway and fastened by a clip at the back of her head. Her dark blue eyes crinkled in a small smile in response to the awed faces of the students in front of her. An applause filled the Great Hall as the staff and students acknowledged the young woman's advanced spell. Her smile grew wider and she raised a hand in thanks. 

Dumbledore too raised his hand and at once the hall fell silent again. "And now I would like to introduce you all to a Ms. Holly Jane Peters. Daughter of Katrina and Johnathan Peters and twin sister to our very own Harry James Potter."
