It was finally time! It was September first and we were going to get to Hogwarts. Hermione was acting just like Molly did when we were in a hurry (at least that's what Ron said) to get to Hogwarts Express. As I was leaving through Floo Powder I looked around my house-I wouldn't be here for a while.
As we step out of the fire place of platform 93/4 (they put it there for this reason) I looked at the express for the first time. As I was saying my good byes the horn sounded. I hurried to my seat so I could wave to my family.
After the train turned around the corner I went and found a compartment with Albus Potter,Lorcan, and Lysander Scamandor.
It was a little weird because I don't really know Lorcan and Lysander very well. Albus seemed to know them though so I mostly stared out of the window. When the food cart came we all jumped up and bought different things to share.
I grabbed a chocolate frog and opened it. It was Ron! I knew he helped Harry out but I didn't think he was on chocolate frog cards!
"Did you know?" I asked holding up the cards.
They all shook their heads.
"I wonder-" I mutter to myself.
I know that Ron is an Auror and all but just because you become an auror doesn't mean you get to be on chocolate frog cards does it?
I turn the card over and it says...
Ron Weasly is an auror in the ministry of magic.
He is famous for helping and being Harry Potter's friend in the second wizarding war
Ron saved Harry's life when Harry was searching for the horxruxes
Ron discovered a new species-a hybrid dragon owl which he named Lownul. They look mainly like an owl but are the color of the dragon, have scales on the tummy but the scales are the color of the owl.
These owls are now being sold in the owlery in diagon alley.
I had to look at the card again. Did he really discover a new species? I guess he did if it says it on the card.
We had gotten off the train, had ridden the boats, got into the great hall (after seeing the ghosts in the room before we go in) and were all waiting for the sorting.
It seemed like forever before I got called but it happened "Weasly, Rose" I slowly walked to the stool and put on the sorting hat.
I had decided to look into my history so I know my genes mostly at the granger side of course. I found out that Hermione's mom was the smart one and her dad was brave. All my life I have felt that I'm not really brave and mostly smart but truly I don't-so back to the sorting.
Hmmm. You are a tricky one. I know that your family is all griffindor but you think your more up to the ravenclaw standards. I see where you are coming from but I also know you want to have your family close. Hmmm tricky tricky.
I don't know what I want!
I know you don't but maybe keeping your family close is a good idea?
Ok family I think that's good.
"Ravenclaw!" the hat yelled.
Wait, what just happened? I though
"Sorry, I mean Griffindor!" the hat yelled. That was a first and it started whispers because everyone was just as confused as me and went and sat with Gryffindor hoping that is really what the sorting hat meant.
After the babble died down professor flitwick(I made up the fact he is headmaster "let the feast begin!"
Suddenly all the golden plates were filled with wonderful foods. It looked like a thanksgiving feast. I looked over at my fellow gryffindors they had already started stuffing their faces with steaming roast and potatoes and gravy I serve a great portion of potatoes and other delicious things and eat.
After we finished eating the gryffindor prefects (I think their names were Daniel melsh and Melina brown) when we came up to a portrait of a fat lady Daniel said "this is the gryffindor common room. The password to get in is dragonsbane and it changes every year."
The portrait swings open and we all climb through.
Congratulations! I'm Prefect Melina Brown, and I'm delighted to welcome you to GRYFFINDOR HOUSE. Our emblem is the lion, the bravest of all creatures; our house colours are scarlet and gold, and our common room lies up in Gryffindor Tower.
This is, quite simply, the best house at Hogwarts. It's where the bravest and boldest end up - for instance: Harry potter! Yes, Potter himself, the greatest wizard of our time, was a Gryffindor! If that's not enough for you, I don't know what is.
I won't keep you long, as all you need to do is two simple things; one try to earn house points and two;know where your dormitories. Boys this way the door is marked first year girls this other way door also marked first year. Enjoy your time at Hogwarts - but how could you fail to? You've become part of the most courageous house in the school.
(I got that off potter more but edited it to fit my needs)
I followed the other girls up the stairs. There are three of us me a girl named Alex Marcus, and another girl named Janessa Alavi. I'm pretty sure Alex is a muggleborn-not that I have anything against that or anything.
