The Almost Chosen Ones

Harry wasn't the only baby born as the seventh month died. One small choice in order decided the course of history. We all know the story of the Potter's. This is the story of The Almost Chosen Ones. Follow the story of the Longbottom twins through their crazy years at Hogwarts. Come on, give it a shot. What have you got to lose?

I've read a lot of fan fiction and decided to finally start one of my own. Comments and constructive criticism is much appreciated and I hope you like it :)

Disclaimer: Lots of the things in here are copied from the books or the movies, like the sorting hat song, and Dumbledore's speeches etc. Just wanted to say, I don't own any of that, or the idea of Hogwarts. But this is a fanfic so I feel like some copied stuff is to be expected. That all belongs to the one and only J.K. Rowling and I am obviously am not J.K. Rowling. However Callie, her role, and how she affects the story is mine.


1. Prologue


Summer 1980 

Pain. Utterly indescribable, unbearable pain was the only thing that he could comprehend. Where was he? Who was he? At the moment he didn’t know. All he knew was that white-hot knives were piercing every inch of his skin, that was practically on fire. His head was about to explode, or maybe implode, he wasn’t quite sure. There was this screeching noise that was piercing his ears, which he realized was coming from him when the excruciating pain suddenly stopped. 


“Severus,” he hissed as he walked across the room petting a giant snake that was draped over him. “Do I accept failure?”


“No, My Lord.” Though he did not dare look up, he could feel the piercing glare that the Dark Lord was shooting him through the snakelike slits that were his eyes. “Then why, do my Death Eaters return to tell me that they were not capable to complete the tasks that I assigned them?” Apparently he was not the only one to fail the Dark Lord today, which explained why the torture from the Cruciatus Curse was much more intense than usual. “All I wanted was for you to acquire a teaching position at Hogwarts to spy on that dumb old fool Dumbledore. Was that too much to ask?” He had to contain his shiver that crawled down his spine at the hiss of Nagini, who seemed to want to comfort her Master.


“No, My Lord, but I overheard crucial information, a prophecy, from the interview for the new Divination teaching position.” The air was now charged with a different kind of intensity. “A prophecy?” He felt a heavy presence trying to penetrate his mind. He thought of the memory he knew that the Dark Lord wanted to avoid further mental torture.


“The One with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches...Born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh month dies...”


“I cannot be defeated! Not by a measly prophecy. Not by an unborn child. Even if I have to kill every family with a child born at the end of July myself.” Severus’s lips thinned because he was sure that he would.
