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!


12. Fawkes and a Ridiculously Open mind

                                                                       Emilys P.O.V.

Dear Lupin,

Much has happened since the last time I wrote to you. One of them being helping take down a full grown Mountain Troll. I’m in the Hospital Wing at the moment because of that. I managed to cut my head so it there is any bloods on this letter, don’t freak out it’s probably mine.

Harry knows I’m his twin sister now thanks to Professor Dumbledore. So that’s cool. Gained 10 points for Griffindor in Potions…. Blah blah blah. Want to Crucio Pansy Parkinson for calling Cat and Alex Mudbloods... Scared the living days out her on a broomstick. I’m just as good as Harry, who is now the new Griffindor Seeker.

Cool right? I’m much better than when I was well younger. Okay and now about the troll.

(Whole acutance written)

And now I’m in the Hospital Wing… And I’m fine… I’ll write to you soon since I probably will remember much more later on.


Emily Potter


A bit of blood had splattered on the paper….. Madam Pomfrey frowned and poured a vile of burning clear liquid on my wound. “OUCH!.” I shrieked and jumped of the bed. I wiped the blood off on a tissue and smiled seeing that the bleeding had completely stopped. “Thanks!” I called and raced out of the Hospital Wing and to the Owlery sending the letter off with Hedwig…. Who didn’t really give me much of a choice…. She kept hooting and flying in front of me. “Fine girl here’s the letter.” I said and handed Hedwig the letter… she seemed happy to fly off.

November came around and the leaves began to change color and the air became to get colder….

I was being a good student and studying. Which is what people should do in my opinion. Oh god I sound like Lupin. Jasmine is allusive these days… I can’t seem to see her at all let alone talk to her. Hermione is studying none stop, which is one of the reasons I am studying now.  Cat was hanging with Alex and seemed more jumpy than usual.

The Twins were probably causing some kind of chaos that I would hear about in the common room tonight. Jasmine hangs around them a lot….. Well when I see her she’s hanging with them. I’ve also befriended Vicky Rock. Who has got to be the most reckless carefree person next to The Weasley Twins.

She had short spiky hair, her hair was as short as Harry’s…. Weird. She and Jasmine were now best friends, which I didn’t mind me and Jasmine weren’t exactly the best of friends. We are close friends but not best friends, she’s to um well she’s just not my bestfriend.

I fit in well with the Ravenclaws….. Speaking of Ravenclaws The Sorting Hat was very close to putting me in Ravenclaw. It was like a split second. What did it say? Oh yes now I remember.

“Smart and quick witted you’d be a fantastic Ravenclaw….. Hmm your quite like you mother you know that?”

“No not really.”

“Your also amazingly brave and courageous…. You would be a great Griffindor.”

“Mr. Sorting Hat, could you please put me in Griffindor?”

“Rather Brave. GRIFFINDOR!”

I shook my head back to the present. I was determined to finish this Potion book within the next period. I leaned my head up against the tree I was well leaning against. I wasn’t all that far away from The Forbidden Forest. I could hear voices coming from the forest and I felt a need to go into it….. But I wouldn’t I was a good student who followed the rules. I followed the rules…. Oh but who was speaking! I wanted to know so bad…

Oh was it so wrong to want to find out who was speaking to you? I hissed and slammed my book shut. I was never going to study if I couldn’t concentrate. I pulled myself up and took a very deep breath; not because I was scared but because I was a little mad that I couldn’t study…. I liked studying. I walked into the forest and after a minute or so stopped.

The voices got louder and I actually could understand some of the voices.

“Who is she?”

“I don’t really know she’s strange is she not?”

“I think she can hear us.”

“Of course she can hear us.”

“Do you think she can sing?”


“You know-“

“Don’t bring up the Prophecy.”

“It’s amazing how open her mind is is it not?”

“Yes, she should learn Occlumency…. It’s dangerous.”

“Think she can howl?”

“No you idiot none of that has happened yet!”

Not really sure why the creatures thought I could howl, I’m not a werewolf. I couldn’t help myself. “What’s Occlumency?” I asked and the voices stopped and I felt kind of light headed. It was a strange feeling but only could be described as light headed. I put a hand to my head not being able to see straight for a second. As soon as my vision cleared up, I saw a large bright red and orange bird. Its beak was black and shiny, not to mention sharp. Its feathers were long and fiery. It had a feathery crest on the back of its head and beautiful black eyes.

“Hello there who are you?” I asked and the bird fluttered up to a higher branch in a tree and looked at me. It cocked its head to the left and then the right. Given by the bright color and feathery crest, I’m guessing it was a he. The creature sang happily and I felt my heart swell with courage and pride…. Okay that’s settles it this is a Phoenix.

The bird flew down to a branch that was eye level with me. I slowly reached a hand out to pet the birds head. And it shyed away. I smiled and began to sing. I don’t really know why I did so but it felt right so I didn’t stop.

“I went into the woods today to see what I could find
I saw an owl and he told me
That he was wise

I went into the woods today to see what I could find
I saw a fox and he told me
To run away and hide

He said take your chances
Run and hide


He said take your chances
Run and hide


I went into the woods today to see what I could see
I saw a deer and she told me
That she was free


She said stay a while
Dont be afraid

She said stay a while
Dont be afraid


I went into the woods today to see what I could find.” I sang and the bird cocked its head to the left (the way birds do) to get a better look at something. He squawked joyously. And I stroked his head. He closed his eyes and purred! Purred! Well it was more of a chirping purr but a purr all the same.

He spread his wings wide. “I like you.” He said and I smiled the voice was defiantly in my head… But I wasn’t making it up. Odd. “Same here.” I said

“Who are you though?”

“I’m Fawkes, a Phoenix.”

“I knew you were a Phoenix!”

“Well I’m not a parrot so I can’t really be any other bird.”

“So what do Phoenixs do?”

“Normal bird stuff.”

“I see. Um how exactly can I er understand you?”

“I simply came into your mind.”


“Your mind is ridiculously open. You should do something about this.”

“Thanks for the uh advice Fawkes.”

“You’re welcome.”

And then I couldn’t understand him any longer. He hopped onto my head and flapped his wings happily. I sighed, did all birds enjoy doing this? I heard something loud and startling and wiped around. I should get out of here shouldn’t I? I quickly raced out and Fawkes flew alongside me. I went back to my pile of books. And Fawkes sat in the tree I was leaning against for a bit before bursting into flight (and song). I smiled, mental note: research Phoenixes.

Professor Snape’s P.O.V.

I watched as Emily Potter came racing out of The Forbidden Forest. Forbidden as in not allowed to go into. I growled, she was just as stupid as every other Griffindor. Her mind was too open, this would pose as a problem soon, and it was we speak…. She had been in my mind without even realizing it. I don’t believe that she could understand what she was doing, or how to prevent it.

Once or twice I’ve felt her emotions, I am not sure how to prevent this because no matter how strong my Occlumency is, I still get them… It frightens me that a first year can do this without any practice or realization of it. I see no way to stop this, so for now I’ll allow it… Until I learn how to stop this. It could be useful of course but I doubt it.

She seemed to have befriended Albus’s Phoenix. Even that bird agreed that her mind was ridiculously open. It’s not that I like her, I don’t but I feel responsible for her safety. I don’t think it would be possible for her to look any more like Lily. This both brings back terrible and wonderful memories. She’s too nice for her own good. Sweet and Kind to everyone…. Including me.

I don’t think that she understands that she should dislike me. Then again as long as I don’t dislike her she’ll like me. Its rather strange really. I guess it would stop if I hated her, but I don’t and can’t hate her… I would if I could believe me but I don’t. I’ve tried and always I end up being “nice” to her. I wanted to be just as cruel to her as I was to her brother but something in me refused to allow me. I hated that something. I just hope that she stays safe, and doesn’t feel any really strong emotions…. I know that won’t end well.

She’s one of the few students that are studying… who’s not a Ravenclaw. She has a thirst for knowledge that’s for sure. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad, but I am sure that she is a kind, brave young girl who should stay out of my head!
