"Fred, put me down!" you shrieked into the ear of the much taller red headed boy. He had thrown you over his shoulder and was running towards the lake with every intention of throwing you in. "Don't you dare! Fred!"
Fred only laughed and upon reaching the edge of the lake, tossed you into the water. You didn't go without a fight though, because before you were completely free of him, you managed to grab a hold of the front of his robes and bring him in with you.
You smiled at the memory, looking up at the sky as you rocked back and forth on your porch swing. Fred had always been a lot of fun, even when you were mad. But looking back on it, being dunked into the lake wasn't all that bad.
You stood on the tips of your toes

THE START OF UNITY
Scorpius sent a curious look towards the group of adults that his father had just nodded to, wondering who they were. There sure were a lot of them, and a lot of red-headed children. Scorpius sidled closer to his parents while they stood in the steam of the Hogwarts Express on Platform 9¾, waiting for the signal to board.
"Do I have to go?" Scorpius asked nervously.
Draco looked down at his son and withheld a sigh. "We've talked about this, Scorpius. You'll do fine at Hogwarts."
Scorpius chewed on his bottom lip and responded quietly. "It's just what if I get put in the wrong house? What if the other kids don't like me? What if "
"Darling," Astoria soothed, kneeling in front of her smaller than average son, placing her hands on his shoulders. "We don't care what house you're sorted into. We'll be proud no matter where you go, and the ot

I am but three,
My eyes are swollen
I cannot see,
I must be stupid
I must be bad,
What else could have made
My daddy so mad?
I wish I were better
I wish I weren't ugly,
Then maybe my mommy
Would still want to hug me.
I can't speak at all
I can't do a wrong
Or else I'm locked up
All the day long
When I awake I'm all alone
The house is dark
My folks aren't home.
When my mommy does come
I'll try and be nice,
So maybe I'll get just
One whipping tonight
Don't make a sound!
I just heard a car
My daddy is back
From Charlie's Bar.
I hear him curse
My name he calls
I press myself
Against the wall.
I try and hide
From his evil eyes
I'm so afraid now
I'm starting to cry.
He finds me weeping
He shouts ugly words,
He says its my fault
That he suffers at work.
He slaps me and hits me
And yells at me more,
I finally get free
And I run for the door.
He's already locked it
And I start to bawl,
He takes me and throws me
Against the hard wall.
I fall to the floor

Severus woke up with a groan.
His head was pounding. His whole body ached. He was sure he had some bruising along his ribs if they weren't broken, and he was almost sure they were and he couldn't fix it because of his lack of knowledge in healing.
The only way to know for sure is with a visit to Poppy and the witch hadn't wanted anything to do with him in months, going as far as to tell him not to come to the hospital wing unless he was bleeding to death. Or to not even come then.
He could not go to see her.
Sighing he pushed himself up slowly, only to be greeted with a wave of dizziness, and a jolt in his stomach that had him nearly tripping over his own feet to get to the lavatory.
Five minutes later he emerged pale and sweating, his thin white shirt was soaked through and his hair was in complete disarray, more so then normal.
It was settled he was sick.
Sitting on the edge of his bed he laid his head in his hands he was tempted to not leave his chambers at all

Lucius stood behind Draco, grasping his neck, talking to him. "Look closely, son," he said, turning to look at his son.

24 days of Ron and Hermione
Ron strongly believed that things like Angels didn't exist. Nor did miracles. When he first met Hermione Granger, she was nothing but a new Percy, except that less ginger, and of the opposite sex. During their first three years in Hogwarts, they become best friends, along with harry. It was great to have two friends. If you had a fight with one, you could always count on the other one. Ron could mostly count on Hermione. She would always lend him her homework, so he wouldn't fail, not to mention, she had her own, unique sense of humor, that kind of matched his own. And than, during the fourth year, something changed. During those years spent together, Ron felt so comfortable with Hermione, and normally he was awkward with other girls, that he forgot that she was a girl. Unfortunately, when he realized that, Hermione was mad at him for days. But when he saw her, with Victor, he felt something that he never felt before. He wanted to march

Lily was sitting in the common room on a couch in front of the fireplace. She was reading Hogwarts, A History for her next History of Magic lesson. She tried to concentrate on the legend of the Chamber of Secrets, but it wasn't that easy, as a loud applause and screaming started in the common room. Lily turned her head.
James Potter came down the stairs. There was a white little lily between his teeth. Lily rolled her eyes and returned to her book. After a few minutes, James stopped next to the couch. He stared at the girl without saying a word. Lily sighed angrily and glanced at him impatiently.
Lily's look changed from upset to shocked while James unbuttoned his shirt. He unfolded it, sticking his chest out. There was a writing on his skin with red ink under his tie, which read: 'WANNA DATE?'
James smiled with the flower in his mouth and looked questioningly at Lily.

Everyone remained silent as they waited anxiously for the announcement.

For that, the Ministry of Magic wants us to activate a barrier around the school campus and remain inside until he is captured again."

Fred & George: A Short Character Analysis
Right, so first off I'm a big fan of the twins: both twins, not just Fred. I've always appreciated both as separate characters and I've never really understood how so many people never picked up on their differences. So I decided to do what I do best - RANT (wayhey!). Keep in mind this is just my own opinion based on what I've read in books 1-7.
In the first place it's important to know and understand the twins' differences, especially if you're writing a story that puts particular focus on them. Yes, both twins are bonkers, fun-loving, flirtatious, stubborn and lest we forget both in the possession of a razor sharp wit. The books may describe them as identical right down to the last freckle, but this doesn't mean that they are one hundred percent identical in personality - no twins are. In fact, if Fred and George were the same they wouldn't make such a good team. Fred and George are a perfect double act and in any double act you
The Definition of Rose WeasleyRose was the exactly perfect combination of Weasley and Granger; she was tall for her age, but not too terribly gangly, with red hair that fell just past her shoulders in small rings. She'd had the unfortunate luck of inheriting Hermione's over-sized front teeth, but that hardly seemed to bother her - her happiness may have stemmed from the fact that, unlike her brother and several of her cousins, she'd been fortunate enough to miss out on the trademark Weasley freckles.The Definition of Rose Weasley2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Scorp always loved looking at her. He couldn't understand why their parents were enemies when he, Rose and Al all got along so smashingly. Still... There were always times when Scorpius could see Rose's Weasley blood boiling up. Like whenever she got into trouble, she'd insist it was the professor's fault, not hers. Detentions were wrongly assigned to her and if she didn't understand a spell (which was rare, but possible), it was entirely the fault of the spell itself and not Rose.
For all her intelligence, Rose lacked

She's not a happy smiling vision of beauty as one could suspect. She's angry, sometimes bitter and feels upset about nothing at times. Her heart has been broken by an all too sunny attitude to life and it rains on Sundays now. Positive rays of warmth and sunshine now glow with an aura of sadness. She lives for others, makes them happy instead. It's who she is, the sunday girl. But don't be fooled by how sad she looks. Once in a while, when the sun doesn't come out, she may go dancing in the rain.

The Tri-Wizard Tournament was a seen as a game of chance and wit but it was truly one for survival. This year, Hogwarts would play host to the exciting game. Selected students from Durmstrang Institute and Beaxbaton Academy of Magic would join Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry starting at the end of October, and would participate as well, giving a fresh air of competition among the occupants of the old Scottish castle. Participants were chosen through a special ritual involving the Goblet of Fire, a magnificently decorated chalice, and were required to be of age.
The event was announced the first night after dinner in Dumbledore's usual 'start of term' speech. Many of the first years had been frightened, their first night at Hogwarts already beginning with an unnatural rush of high adrenaline. It was quite the exciting matter for the older students, however, as it was a nice change from the other years of their schooling.

Portrait of Severus SnapeDeath had little impact on the one Severus Snape. His feelings never moved, his bitterness remained just, and his little remaining love was still quite the same. He knew that death was coming it was another part of life he'd prepared himself for when taking on the ante of protecting an almost un-protectable boy. If dying meant repaying his debt to not society, not to the people whose lives were lost when he became a death eater, and not to those he'd been harsh, cruel, and merciless to in those dark ages as a teenager but the one and only person who'd cared as much as doing her all to try and sway him from his wrong and sick infatuations of dark arts, then so be it.Portrait of Severus Snape3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

HP vs. Twilight EssayWHY HARRY POTTER IS BETTER THAN TWILIGHTHP vs. Twilight Essay3 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
The Harry Potter novels are one of the very few book series which have been deemed a classic by critics and readers right after being published. It was obvious for everyone from the start that Harry Potter would be remembered forever. The same cannot be said for the Twilight novels by Stephanie Meyer which are poorly written trash, surprisingly amusing to many teens nationwide. The movies came out as well, which were even worse than the books, which is saying something. Honestly, I could only watch the very first one; it was too painful to see the soap opera continue.
To summarize the books, Harry Potter is the story of an orphan boy who discovers he is a wizard, and his parents were killed by the evil Lord Voldemort. Each book records his epic adventures in the thrilling battle of Good vs. Evil. Twilight is the story of Bella Swan, an ordinary girl who moves to a small town, and there s
