Emily Potter, Year 1

I’m Emily Lily Potter. If you haven’t already guessed by the last name, I’m Harry Potter's sister. We’re both the same age, we’re twins. I look like our mother and he looks like our father, Weird huh? I don’t live with the all terrible Dursley’s and I sure as heck don’t live under the stairs! I have been living with my godfather (Remus Lupin) since I was about 5. My mother (Lily Potter) dropped me off at the home of some Muggles less than a day before she died. But the first 5 years of my life were worse than Harry’s, since I was painfully skinny and usually ended cut by broken glass (I had magical issues with the windows). But Lupin managed to locate me when I was 5 and it was a heck of a lot better after that. Anyway, I’m going to go to Hogwarts soon and that should be real fun, maybe I’ll even make some friends!


16. Christmas Break

Emily's P.O.V.

I drug my trunk out like everyone else and slunk out of the train. I wonder why Alex didn’t wish to go home for Christmas. I’ll ask her sometime. I looked about in the loud crowd and soon enough found Lupin back by the solid brick wall looking about (probably hoping to spot my bright red hair). I smiled happily (his face had at least 3 more scars on it, poor him). I quickly drug my trunk in his general direction and he seemed almost startled to see me.

He smiled warmly though and walked over to me and gave me a very tight hug. I smiled even bigger (if that was possible) “I’ve missed you.” I murmured and he smiled “I’ve missed you too. And the house is far too quiet without you.” He said I looked over to see Cat chatting with her parents. Well at least now I know where she gets her height. Her dad must have been like 6’5!

I waved at her and she waved back. “I’m guessing that’s a friend of yours.” Lupin asked “Yeah. Her name’s Cat, she’s in Griffindor too.” I chirped and he smiled

“Come on let’s get home Emmy. I know your just dying to tell me everything.” He said and I looked at him almost queerly he hadn’t called me Emmy in years. I had no objection to it of course... I didn’t mind my nick name.  He was still smiling and gently placed a hand on my shoulder.

I grasped his arm with one hand and my trunk in the other. We were swept home and I felt my head spin. And it took me a second to focus my vision. Lupin found this mildly amusing because he laughed lightly. Panther jumped off my Trunk and scampered about like a cat of a much younger age.

Both I am Lupin went inside and I well… talked his ear off. He listened as always and I really don’t remember what happened after that because I fell asleep…

Lupin’s P.O.V.

I woke up with a start. I was still on the couch where I had fallen asleep shortly after Emily did so. In about a second I was wide awake and almost frantic seeing that Emily wasn’t beside me. I took a deep breath and reluctantly got up and went up to her bedroom where she wasn’t found.

I felt a fresh wave of panic wash over me and I struggled to stay calm. I searched about the house in a frantic fashion. I looked at the front door; she couldn’t possibly be that stupid. There was snow on the ground and it was the middle of the night! Like she’d- I went outside.

She was standing outside staring at the night sky. There was still a great amount of snow on the ground and I shivered in the cold night air. I came and stood beside her. I looked up and naturally the first thing that I saw was the almost full moon. I had at least 3 days until the full moon.

That and all the constellations, Emily’s mismatched eyes glittered with the bright stars. Emily had a fascination with constellations. Not stars, constellations. She had a good memory for them too. I could see that she was staring at Lupus, it’s shaped like a wolf. Padfoot used to always joke- I shouldn’t think about him.

She gave a small shiver and I placed a hand on her shoulder. That was the first time she made eye contact with me all night. I would never be able to understand how people had been so cruel to her.

She gave another shiver and I ran my eyes over her checking for any kind of injury or bruise and such. To my pleasure I found none.  She had on a long sleeve shirt but it wasn’t appropriate for such cold night weather.

“May I ask why you nearly gave me a heart attack?” I asked and she frowned “Sorry Lupin… I forgot to check what stage the moon was at and I couldn’t help myself from coming out. It’s just so beautiful at night. And I’m sorry I scared you but I didn’t realize you would wake up after I left. You’re usually a deep sleeper.” She murmured and I gently hugged her.

“No harm done just look on a calendar or something next time okay?” I asked and she nodded shivering again. We both walked back inside. I didn’t actually think she cared to check out the moon…. Just goes to show you I should keep a closer eye on her.

I noticed that she walked with her head held higher. I hadn’t noticed this, when had that started? Was this just something I could just now have noticed? Oh well like it mattered, it was good to see her head held high like that…. It reminded me of the way James would do so.

She was much like the both of them, James and Lily of course. She looked almost exactly like Lily. But her personality was like the both of them. She was quick to defend me and most likely her friends. Never herself though which could oppose a problem later….

“Remus. Remus.” Emily was snapping her fingers in front of my face she usually just called me by my last name. I must have zoned out… “Yes.” I asked “I just wanted to apologize again. And just wanted to say I love you.” She murmured and gave me hug. “Quit apologizing, it’s getting annoying. And I love you too. Now get to bed.” I said and she smiled walking off to her room, I smiled at least she’s not screwed up. I sighed I should probably sleep… Or she would get mad at me….. And with that thought I went to bed.

… Next day…

Emily was out playing with a baby rabbit. I never will understand why she loves baby animals so much. I had managed to get her to where a sweater and scarf… Though I could not convince her to put on some gloves, she would regret that.

I still am curious why animals like her so much. I swear to Merlin she’s got some telepathic connection with that cat. I wouldn’t be surprised if she could understand animals. Half the time she’s dragging in some hurt fox or badger and nursing back to good health, I think it’s in a female’s nature to mother things.

I smiled I haven’t bitten her, that’s a good thing. I once chased her halfway to London but I haven’t actually bitten her. I would like it to stay that way too.

Emily’s P.O.V.

I happily petted the top of the baby bunnies head. It was so soft. It’s nose was twitching and it was adorable. I think my heart melted. Blackberry was overjoyed to see me back and had managed to cover herself in snow on her joyous bound over here. She looked a little unhappy and shook herself ridding her pelt of most the snow.

Blackberry was a young fox, she was a red fox but had a lot of black accents. Her legs were black, same as her muzzle and she had a black ring on her tail right before the white tip. She also had strange eye markings that I drew when I got bored, her eyes were a brown and she was a very friendly fox.

I smiled at her and happily stroked her muzzle. She yipped happily and jumped about in a joyful way. The baby bunny jumped about. Panther looked at me and then pounced on a plant. He yanked it out of the ground with his teeth and gave it to me. “Clover?” I asked and looked at the baby bunny who was jumping back to his burrow. “Good-bye Clover!” I chirped figuring it out rather fast.

I smiled. I loved animals. Panther glared at Blackberry who began to pant contently. After jumping about like an idiot. I smiled and patted her head. I am okay with cold weather, in a way it brings back horrible memories but not unless I think about it. My room with the Thorn’s was always freezing cold, I swear to Merlin that they were hoping I would die of hypothermia or something.

I fell back in the snow. No cold weather is much more peaceful and calming than that. I sighed looking up at the sky, why was I so strange? Most people didn’t think so much, not even Lupin did as much as I. All I did was think and wonder and conclude, I’m getting far too logical. I should just go on what seems right instead of thinking things through so thoroughly.

Great now I’m thinking about why I’m thinking. I’m so weird. I have an essay I need to do for Potions. One roll of parchment, in which will be painfully simple. And one for DADA and as usual Transfiguration, honestly all that put together should take only an hour or so.

“Merlin I’m weird. Isn’t that right Panther?” I asked and ran a hand through my wet hair.  He gave a roll of his eyes. Blackberry had gotten bored with sitting about and pounced on my scarf. “Don’t do that.” I said and she stopped looking very bored and leaving and I swore she muttered something about how I was no fun. Panther gave her a glare.

I gently stroked his head and he smiled bounding into the forest. I rolled my eyes and followed, not to far though I don’t want to be out here much longer. I won’t deny that the forest was absolutely beautiful during the winter. Everything was beautiful during winter.


“Yes mother?”

“Make breakfast you bitch. Do I look like a cook?”

“yes ma ’me.”

I shook my head again. Stop thinking about those years… Merlin I can’t forget about it if I keep thinking about it. I took a deep breath. I doubt Harry got beaten up like I did. Honestly I don’t see why he’s complaining. I mean he didn’t have nails jammed in his stomach. Panther let out a long hiss. “Your right, I shouldn’t think about that…. Yeah… Yeah…. Still I should talk about it right?” I asked and Panther hissed again

“Okay I won’t bring it up again.”

Thank you.

“You’re in my head too?”

Duh, your mind is ridiculously open. Why wouldn’t I be?

“Why am I not surprised?”

Because you aren’t.

“Shut up you.” I said and threw a snow ball in his face. Much to his… displeasure.

Skipping through most of everything……

I jumped onto the Train and with a great amount of effort I managed to drag my trunk onto the train. I was rather proud of this considering I couldn’t do it a few months ago. I met up with Hermione and Cat. Cat seemed mildly annoyed by something and had to leave twice because her cat wouldn’t stop running about the train.

I waved to Lupin and my eyes caught Cat’s younger sisters. Who were jumping up and down like idiots. Then one of them chased the other around her parents. Lupin looked over mildly amused by this. Cat threw a hand to her head beside me. “I can’t believe I’m related to them.” She muttered and I laughed

The train you know began to move blah blah blah. Me Hermione and Cat chatted about what we did blah blah blah. Like an hour later we hit Hogwarts!
