2. Chapter Two

A/N: Just so you know, in the next few books I'm calling Lily Luna, Lilia, because it's easier than having two Lily's. 


After her makeover for going into the past, Lily walked into the living room behind Kingsley.

"Here she is." she heard Kingsley say to her parents. 

"What do you think?" She asked.

"Lily! You're beautiful!" Ginny gasped.

"Um, you're not aloud to call me Lily." Lily said. "I'm going to the past tomorrow morning, and until then you have to call me Lilia." 

Lily had used her new powers to make her hair fall down her back in a black, shimmering sheet. Her eyes were blue, but still their same shape. She was currently wearing a yellow summer dress that went down to about mid thighs, with a black belt around the middle, and a jean jacket over her shoulders. 

"What are you saying your last name is, Lilia?" Harry asked.

"Well, my full name will be Lilia Elizabeth Sage Grove, but mostly I just say Lilia Grove." Lily informed her family.

"Where did you find that name?" Asked James.

"I just thought it was pretty. Do you not like it?" Lily asked.

"No, it's very, as you said, pretty." James said the word pretty like it tasted bad in his mouth. "It's just not one I would have come up with."

"Okay, Lily. Get to sleep. You have a big day tomorrow." Harry said.

"Wait." Lily turned to Kingsley. "What about during the summer holidays? Where will I go then?" 

"You will be going with Lily Evans to her house. We've already made sure that'll happen." Kingsley explained.

"How did you do that?" Lily asked. 

"That's our little secret. All you need to know is that you'll have a place to go." Kingsley assured her. 

"Okay. Goodnight, everyone." Lily said.

"Goodnight, Lily." Harry replied.

"You're supposed to call me Lilia!" Lily said.

"Alright. Goodnight, Lilia."



The next morning when Lily woke up, she was very nervous. She was starting to wish she hadn't decided to do this. But she had to, so she got up and got dressed in the same dress as she was wearing the night before, but she decided to change her hair. Concentrating hard, she felt her hair grow longer and braid itself, so that the braid went down to her hips. She pulled it over her shoulder, and decided to make it white blonde. 

"Wow, Lily." Harry said. He was going to continue, but she interrupted.

"My name is Lilia." 

"You look beautiful, Lilia." Ginny said, appearing over Harry's shoulder. "Come on, you have to go now. I packed your trunk last night, and it's already in the living room."

Lily followed her parents into the living room, where her trunk was standing. On top of the trunk was a small white kitten with pale blue eyes, and silver on the end of it's tail. 

"Oh!" Lily gasped. "She's beautiful!"

"She's yours." Harry said.

"Thank you so much! I'll call her, Snow." Lily said.

"Now, Lily, you really have to go." Ginny said. She embraced her. "Be careful."

"I will. See you in a few years." Lily sighed. "Well, for you, a few seconds." She turned to Harry. "Bye, Dad." She said, hugging him, too. 

"Bye, Lily." Albus said. He stood there looking awkward, until Lily walked over and pulled him and James into a hug. 

"Bye James, Albus. I'll miss you." Lily whispered. Then she let go. "Okay. Bye you guys." Lily pulled out her Time-Turner, and spun it a few times. The last thing she saw was her family grouped in the living room, before she appeared just outside of Kings Cross station. 

"Excuse me, what's the date and time?" She asked a man passing by. 

"It's September first, 1971, and the time is 10:45 a.m." The man said. 

"Thank you." Lily said, and rushed into Kings Cross pushing a trolley she found next to her, laden with her trunk and cat. Once she found the correct barrier, she ran at it, and found herself on Platform 9 3/4. 

"Wow." She whispered to herself. As she looked around, she saw Lily Evans pulling on the arm of someone who could only be Petunia. Just as Petunia flounced away, Lilia walked over.

"Hi! My name is Lilia Grove. What's yours?" Lilia asked.

"My name is Lily Evans. Are you starting Hogwarts this year, too?" Lily asked. 

"Yes. I'm really excited. Who's that?" Lilia asked.

"That's my sister, Petunia." Lily explained.

"Your parents must like flowers to have named both their daughters after them." Lilia joked. Lily smiled.

"Yeah, I guess so. Petunia is really mad at me, though." Lily's smile wilted. 

"Why is she mad?" Lilia asked. 

"Because Sev and I saw a letter from her to Professor Dumbledore, the Hogwarts headmaster." Lily explained. "I accidentally told her, and she called me a freak!" Lily had fresh tears in her eyes, that started falling. 

"Oh, don't cry, Lily!" Lilia said, putting an arm around her shoulders. "What she thinks about you doesn't matter."

"Yes it does." Lily said. "She's my sister, and she hates me now!" 

"Well, that's not something you can control, is it?" Lilia asked. "Maybe you can talk to her over the holidays, after she's had time to cool down. Then, if she's still mad, then move on and have fun with your friends!"

"I don't have any friends." Lily said.

"Well, now you do!" Lilia said. "I'll be your best friend now!" 

"Okay." Lily dried her eyes. "Do you want to meet Sev?" 

"Sure! He sounds like a nice person." Lilia said, following Lily over to where a small, stringy, greasy-haired boy stood next to his sullen-faced mother. 

"Hey, Sev. This is Lilia Grove. Lilia, this is Severus Snape." Lily introduced them to each other. Severus looked her up and down with distaste on his face.

"What's your blood status?" He asked. 

Lilia hesitated.  "I'm Muggle-born."

"You're a Mud- Muggle-born?" Severus asked, looking at her with even more distaste. 

"Yeah." Lilia said. "So's Lily. What's wrong with it?" 

Lily was looking at Severus, too, waiting for his answer. 

"Nothing's wrong with it." Severus said.

"Sev, please try to be friends with her." Lily pleaded. 

"Oh, hang on, there are some other friends of mine over there. I'll be back in a few minutes." Lilia said. She had in fact seen James and Sirius, and she rushed over to talk to them.

"Hi!" Lilia said. 

"Hi!" James and Sirius said at the same time. "Who're you?"

"My name is Lilia Grove. What're your names?" Lilia asked.

"My name is James Potter." James said.

"I'm Sirius Black." Sirius added.

"Oh, cool! Do you guys know what House you want to be in at Hogwarts?" Lilia asked.

"Gryffindor, where dwell the brave at heart. Like my dad." James said. "Imagine being put in Slytherin. I think I'd leave, wouldn't you?"

Sirius didn't smile. "My whole family have been in Slytherin." he said.

"I thought you seemed all right!" James exclaimed. 

Now Sirius smiled. "Maybe I'll break the tradition. I want to go to Gryffindor. What about you, Lilia?" 

"I'd like to go to Gryffindor, but if that's not an option for me, then Hufflepuff seems like the best second option." Lilia decided.

"Hufflepuff? Why Hufflepuff?" James asked.

"Because.  Hufflepuff's are kind, loyal, patient, and hard-working. That seems like a house I'd fit in with." Lilia explained. 

"Oh. I guess Hufflepuff wouldn't be too bad." Sirius mused aloud. "Anyway, what do you two want to do once we get to Hogwarts?" 

"I thought it'd be fun to prank that kid over there." James said. With a sinking feeling, Lilia realized he was talking about Severus. 

"Please don't prank him! He's my friend!" Lilia pleaded. 

"But, come on! He's the perfect one to prank!" James said.

"James Fleamont Potter, if you prank that boy I will never speak to you again." Lilia said. 

"Fine, fine! I won't prank him! How did you know my middle name was Fleamont?" James asked.

"Does it matter?" Lilia said. At that moment, a whistle blew. "Come on, we have to get on the train." 

The trio boarded the train, and were off to Hogwarts.
