Hermione Granger and the Philosopher's stone

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's stone written from the perspective of Hermione Granger.

Hermione Granger is an extraordinary little girl. Ever since she was a toddler she's been making things happen that would cause the other boys and girls in the playground turn their heads, not to mention the looks of horror from their parents. Not only is there something strange about Hermione, but she also happens to be the cleverest little girl her primary school has ever had.

A week into the summer holidays, Hermione receives a letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
She's always known she was different, but now Hermione has found a place where she truly belongs.

Follow her along her journey, making new friends, learning new things and exceeding tremendously in her school work, but what will happen when she learns the secrets of the Wizarding world?


14. Dorms

We all scramble through the hole, another Prefect bringing up the rear (and giving Neville a leg-up). We enter into Gryffindor common room - a welcoming, circular room, with arm chairs dotted about the place, a round red-and-yellow rug in front of a crackling fireplace.

I follow the rest of our group to the centre of the room until we're all stood on the worn rug.

"The boys' dormitories are through the door on the left," Percy says, pointing to a doorway on one side of the room. "and up the stairs; the girls' on the right."

We turn to look where he points, and are then informed that it's lights-out at 10.30.

"Your belongings have already been taken to your rooms - so you should find everything is in order. Good night," he nods. "Oh, and remember to be up early tomorrow morning - you've a big day ahead."

As Percy walks away, presumably to his own dormitory, it occurs to me for the first time that I'll be sharing a room with the four other first-year girls stood on the rug beside me.

I smile awkwardly at a girl with long, curly blonde hair and remember that she was the first new Gryffindor - Lavender Brown.

"Hi, I'm Hermione Granger," I say, widening my smile. "How do you like it at Hogwarts so far?"

"Ugh," She groans. "I really don't want to mingle right now. I'm toooooo tired!" She flicks her hair and stomps away.

What a pleasant girl.

I start to make my way towards the doorway Percy directed us to, when I spot Parvati.

"Hello, Parvati," I smile. "Is it at all possible if I could sleep in the bed next to you? I'm not at all fussed on that Lavender girl."

Parvati's smile falters.

"Um, sure Hermione, it's just, well, I really like Lavender," her brow furrows. "So, I've already agreed we'll sleep next to each other. But you can sleep on my other side?"

"Oh, that's fine, I really don't mind - I didn't mean to sound horrible. I'm sure she's a lovely person when she's not so tired."

Parvati's eyebrows raise, but then she smiles.

"I guess so. We all get a bit cranky when we haven't had enough sleep!"

Parvati and I walk up the twirling staircase, to a door marked 'first years'. We enter, and find that someone has already taken the bed nearest the door.

"Sally!" I smile. I'm suddenly glad that I made the effort to find new friends on the train.

"Hi Hermione," she yawns, jumping into her four-poster bed. "Take the bed next to me!" She suggests, so I do.

Before I fall asleep, I decide I'm going to read up on charms and history of magic - although I've already read my books dozens of times, I need to go over what I've learnt for my first lessons tomorrow.

I'm too tired to fully take it all in, but I eventually finish chapters 1-5 in each book, and decide to turn out my light.

As I reach over to switch it off, I notice the chair next to my bed is stacked with red-and-yellow striped garments. I smile and reach out for a scarf, rubbing the soft wool between my fingers.

Sally is already snoring beside me, and Parvati's curtains are drawn, so I push my blankets away from me and step over to the window. Thankfully the ledge is just big enough to sit on, and, looking out over Hogwarts grounds, I fall asleep gazing into the darkness.
