Lyra Black Book One

What if Sirius Black had a twin sister?
Lyra Black is the twin sister of Sirius Black. She has jet black, curly hair and vividly green eyes. She's a proud Marauder, but she's also friends with Lily and Severus, as she defends them both from attacks by James and Sirius. When she's present, that is. Lyra begins the struggle of navigating Hogwarts with her twin brother and his friends. Can she cope?


1. Chapter One

"Sirius! Lyra!" Walburga Black's screeching voice echoed up from below. "Get down here!" 

Lyra stepped out of her bedroom, followed by Sirius, and the two of them hurried down the stairs. 

"The train's going to leave soon." Walburga snapped. 

"Are you taking us?" Lyra asked hopefully. 

"No." Walburga sneered. "I have much better things to do. I've arranged for another pure-blood family, the Potter's, to come pick you up. You'd better be ready by the time they get here. Hurry up!" 

Lyra sighed, and followed her brother to collect their things. As they were entering the kitchen again, a pair of grey eyes shone from behind a door. Lyra glanced at Sirius, who nodded, and the pair entered the closet. 

"Regulus, what are you doing in here?" Lyra asked. 

"Do you have to go?" Regulus asked quietly. "I don't want to be here alone!" 

"Reg, don't be silly, Mum dotes on you." Sirius said. "You've got nothing to worry about. It's Ly and me who have to watch out, really..." 

"I know." Regulus sighed. "But I'll miss you." 

Lyra stepped forward and hugged him, followed by Sirius. 

"We'll be back in June." Lyra said. "Don't worry. It'll go by quicker than you could ever imagine." 

A sharp knock on the front door caused Lyra and Sirius to step back and open the door. 

"Bye, Reg." Lyra said. Regulus nodded, and closed the door again. 

Sirius went over and opened the door. Standing there was a man with messy black hair and hazel eyes, a woman with light brown hair and blue eyes, and a boy who looked to be around Sirius and Lyra's age, also with messy black hair and hazel eyes. 

"Hello." Sirius said. 

"Hi!" the other boy exclaimed. "I'm James Potter. We're supposed to be taking you guys to King's Cross." 

"Um, yeah, I guess." Lyra said. "We'll just get our trunks." 

"Are your parents here?" the man asked. "I would love to meet them." 

Sirius shrugged. "They might be. They might not. It's hard to tell, there's never really a difference." 

The man's brown furrowed, but he followed the twins down to the kitchen to collect their trunks. 

As soon as Sirius's and Lyra's things had been packed into the car, the three children settled into the back seat, with the man driving and the woman in the passenger side. 

"I'm Fleamont Potter." the man said. "And this is my wife, Euphemia." 

"Thank you for taking us." Lyra said politely. "It's doing our parents a great favor." 

"Oh, it's no trouble!" Euphemia said airily. "James was ever so excited when he heard you two were his age, he's never had many friends." 

"No, I prank everyone too much." James said casually. 

"You like pranking?" Sirius asked. 

"I love it!" James exclaimed. "It's what I do best!" 

"So do we!" Lyra said excitedly. "Pranking is so much fun!" 

"Well!" Fleamont said, glancing at them in the mirror. "It looks like you'll all get along nicely then!" 

James, Sirius, and Lyra looked at each other, and beamed. It seemed that all three children, who had never had a friend in their lives, had just found the two best friends they could ever hope for. 


Well, what do you think of this idea? Is it good? Please let me know what you think!

I've got some pretty fun ideas for this, so hopefully I'll keep updating, and not lose my motivation for it like I have with so many others!
