The Hogwarts Years- First Year

This follows the POVs of Catarneigh Salucci and Louisa Finnigan. It shows them as they go through their first year at Hogwarts. The struggles they face and the people they meet.




It was a week before Christmas. All lessons had stopped. I was happy about this as I needed a proper break. I was sitting alone in the Great Hall when I saw Tilly walk down with her trunk.

'I didn't know you were going away for Christmas.' I said when I Tilly was next to me.

'Yeah. I'm going to America.' said Tilly. 'Thought you were going.'

'My family have gone to visit my cousins in France. Can't stand Zelda so I didn't go with them.' I explained.

'Sorry I'm leaving you. But I've got something that might just cheer you up.'


'Natalia's going away too. Not so much can be said about Portia, though.' said Tilly, sadly.

'Good. One more comment from Natalia about my fear of heights and I think I might killer her.'

'At least let her get through her first year.' Tilly laughed. 'Well- Merry Christmas.' she walked out of the Great Hall to join the other students.


Before long, it was Christmas. I had woken up to find a big pile of Christmas presents on the end of my bed. Portia woke up shortly after me. Once Portia had opened all her pretents, she walked out of the room. I got up and walked over to the door and shut it. It was only me and Portia left since Tilly, Natalia and the Prince twins; Penelope and Priscilla had gone home. After I shut the door, I went to the window. This was the first time it had ever snowed exactly on Christmas. I loved the snow. I could spend hours in it and I'd never get cold.

I opened the window and stuck my hand out. The snowflakes floated onto my hand. I stared at them, then looked down at the ground.

At around seven it was time for our Christmas dinner. As I walked out of the dorm, I dumped into a boy- Josh- the boy I had met on my first day.

Nobody's out here. I thought. I might as well...

Without even thinking, snow started to shoot out of my hand. I watched it as it lightly floated to the floor.

I'd never actually compared real snow to my snow. My snow seemed to shine in the light. I heard people coming outside and pulled my hand back inside.

At around seven it was time for our Christmas dinner. As I walked out of the dorm, I dumped into a boy- Josh- the boy I had met on my first day.

'Sorry!' apologised Josh.

'It's okay. It was my own fault. Are you the only boy?' I asked.

'Yeah. Everyone else has gone home.'

'My friend's gone home. Do you want to sit with me?'

'I can't. I promised Lucy I'd sit with her and Grace and Leah.'


I had no idea who Lucy, Grace or Leah were so I didn't invite myself to join them.

I made my way to the Great Hall. Once I was there, I sat alone on the Ravenclaw Table. It didn't bother me. Nobody paid any attention to me anyway. I saw Portia was also on her own. The poor kid spent that much time with Natalia that she didn't even have time to make other friends. I looked over at the Hufflepuff Table. Josh was sitting with three girls. One of them I recognised as Finnigan.

Lucy? I thought her name was Louisa.

It's funny the things you believe when you haven't properly met someone.
