2. Year One-Chapter Two
"Gryffindors,please follow me.Please,keep up.Thank you."Percy said walking ahead of the Gryffindor house.We followed closely behind."This is the most direct path to the dormitories.Oh,and keep an eye on the staircases,they like to change.Keep up,please,and follow me.Quickly,now."He said ushering us as kids got distracted by the moving portraits.We came to a portrait of a fat lady and she looked at us all."Password?"Some kids jumped back as she spoke."Caput Draconis."She swung open and the Irish kid lit out a very loud "Wow" into my ear,getting a very big glare.We all walked in and waited for Percy to tell us what to do."Welcome to the Gryffindor Common Room.Boys' dormitories are upstairs and down to your left.Girls,the same on the right.You'll find that all of your belongs have already been brought up."We all nodded and scattered.I followed Hermione up to find my things."Look we're dorm mates."I smiled at Hermione and sat on my bed.I stood up and opened Shatter's cage.She slowly stepped out and walked around the room taking in her new space.Hermione squealed."What's her name!?"I smiled."Shatter."I say and pick Shatter up.She jumped into my bed as I grabbed one of my trunks and opened it pulling out pajamas.I slid into the washroom and changed,walking out and placing my slippers by my bed and robe hanging on the end of my bed.I slid off my locket and laid it on the shared dresser between Hermione and I then turned over and closed my eyes mumbling goodnight to Hermione and allowing Shatter to snuggle into my chest.
I awake to Hermione shaking me."Get ready,then we're going to breakfast.I've taken the responsibility of laying out your uniform and books also took a look at schedule we have every class but Transfiguration together.You have that with Harry and Ron,I do believe."I nodded and sat up moving my legs to the edge.I slid my slippers and robe on and grabbed my uniform.I noticed Hermione and I were the only ones up.I looked at her."It's merely six in the morning.If you wanted time to get ready and eat and still be at Transfiguration by eight fifteen you needed up early considering I've been trying to wake you up for the pass thirty minutes."I nodded and walked in taking a quick shower then sliding on my uniform.I walked out and she smiled."Forty minutes to spare."I grabbed my books and followed Hermione out to the great hall."Good Morning Ms.Granger,Ms.Potter."We were greeted by Dumbledore."Good morning."We add back in unison and sit down flattening our robes and skirts under our butts to keep anyone from sitting on them.I sat pancakes,sausages,and eggs on my plate and grabbed pumpkin juice.We started eating as students fled in.Harry greeted me with a hug and grabbed himself some food.
I walked into Transfiguration and took a seat by Lavender Brown."The cat's Professor McGonagall,is'nt it?"I asked her and she nodded."How'd you know?"I shrugged."I just did."A few moments later Harry and Ron ran in."Whew!We made it!Can you imagine the look on Ol' McGonagall's face If we were late."Right as Ron said that Professor McGonagall jumped off and changed back to herself."Bloody brilliant!"Ron let out."Oh,thank you for that assessment,Mr.Weasley.Perhaps it would be much useful if I transfigured Mr.Potter and yourself into a pocket watch?That way you might be on time."She said."We got Lost."Harry let out."Then perhaps a map?I trust you don't need one to find your seats."She said pointing her wand at the two empty desk in front of Susan Bone and another Hufflepuff.I rolled my eyes and listened to Professor McGonagall talk about the origin and history of Transfiguration.
I took a seat next to Hermione in Potions and sighed.Snape just stared at me then shook his head."There will be no foolish wand-waving or silly incantations in this class.As such,I don't expect many of you to appreciate the subtle science and exact art that is potion making.However,those select few who posses the predisposition.... I can teach you how to bewitch the mind and ensnare the senses. I can tell you how to bottle fame, brew glory, and even put a stopper in death. Then again, maybe some of you have come to Hogwarts in possession of abilities so formidable that you feel confident enough to not pay attention. Mr. Potter... our new celebrity. Tell me, what would I get if I added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood?"Harry shrugged" You don't know? Well, let's try again. Where, Mr. Potter, would you look if I asked you to find me a bezoar?"Harry just stared at him before stuttering."I-I don't know sir."Hermione's hand shot in the air once he said that."And what is the difference between monkshood and wolfsbane?"He shrugged."I Don't know,sir."He said clearly this time."Pity.Clearly,fame is not everything ,is it,Mr.Potter?"I rolled my eyes."And Ms.Potter."I raised my eyebrows."I will not tolerate eye rolling in my class."I shrugged."I don't tolerate monotone,grease balls,but that doesn't stop one from standing in front of me,now does it?"A few other Gryffindors chuckled while Hermione hit my ribs."Very well Ms.Potter."He turned around and begun writing on the board.
I groaned as Fred and George pulled me between them."Did you really talk back to Snape and he didn't take any points away?"I nodded."Yeah."This caught a few peoples attention."How?"Dean asked pulling Seamus and Neville into the conversation."I rolled my eyes when he expected Harry to know about magic even though we just learnt about this world two weeks ago.He told me he didn't tolerate eye rolling in his class room and all I said was I didn't tolerate monotone,grease balls,but that doesn't stop one from standing in front of me."I say and everyone looks at me."He said very well and turned around."I add grabbing a cookie from Fred's plate and inspecting it before nibbling it.Soon mail came."Look Neville's got a remembrall!"We all look at Neville."I've read about those!When the smoke turns red it means you've forgotten something!"Hermione spoke as the smoke turned red."Thing is,I can't remember what I've forgotten."I laughed."You're robe perhaps."I pointed out.(A/N:This is true.Neville did forget his robe.No one pointed it out though)He looked down and looked back up."It seems I have."I laughed and finished eating and began to talk with George and Fred.
