"Sirius! Peter! I've got it!" James hissed excitedly, dropping a large book on the table where they had spread out their homework.
"I've figured out why Remus keeps disappearing!"
Peter looked confused. "His mum has some long-lasting illness, doesn't she?"
"Peter, don't you find it odd that Remus' mum gets deathly ill exactly once a month?"
"Yeah. And he disappears for two days and comes back looking like he was in a fight with one of Hagrid's monsters."
"More like all of them," Sirius said, now interested. "And keep your voice down, Madam Pince is dying to throw me out of here."
"Right, so I got this bizarre hunch, and I checked the lunar calendar against the days that he's missed. He's always gone on the full moon!"
It took a moment for that to sink in, and Sirius' eyes grew huge, filled with excitement . "No... there's no way "

"Merlin, no!" Lily said exasperatedly as he felt the frustration build in his shoulders.
Their first date was not going as he planned. He had wanted to sweep her off her feet and make her melt at how romantic he was. Though, after she said she didn't want to go to the Three Broomsticks, he had to come up with something new. Snow was beginning to fall around them as he waved at a few mates that were heading over to the Hog's Head.
Turning to look across at Lily, she was staring up at the snow as if she'd been waiting for it. Her deep emerald eyes seemed to sparkle as the snowflakes collected on her eyelashes and throughout her red hair. She looked gorgeous, slightly dusted with shimmering powder as she stuck out her tongue slowly to catch a stray flake. It gave him an idea.
"Stay here, will you? Don't leave, I promise I'll be right back," he put up his hands and grabbed her shoulders as if planting her into the ground. She ki

James' mind was racing at a hundred kilometers per hour, trying to reassure himself that it would all work out. After all, if he and Lily weren't meant for each other then why had her agreement to go out with him caused him such sheer elation that he performed a rather embarrassing victory dance (unfortunately witn

Hermione had read about the sorting process in «Hogwarts a History», and knew that whatever she thought about at the moment, the hat would "hear". Besides it had said in its song that «There's nothing hidden in your head, the sorting hat can't see».
"Hmm You would be a good Ravenclaw but there's more to you than just wit and cleverness I see bravery as well. Hmm You could fit in Gryffindor too "
The hat went quiet as though as it was thinking about it. Hermione waited patiently, waiting for the hat to decide.

Lily was down in the common room, pretending to read a book, while she waited for her friends Kyra and Cora. She had told them to pack the night before but as always, they waited until the very last possible moment to pack. Lily shook her head, when would they ever learn. Those two were the biggest procrastinators she had ever met. She thought six years of being friends would change them into some of her habits, but it seems old habits die-hard.
"When will they ever learn," Lily said to herself.
"You know, talking to yourself is the first sign of insanity," a voice said from behind her.
"Potter, my day was going great and you just have to go and ruin it don't you?" Lily said turning the page of her book, not looking up to him.

So this was it. Lily could hardly believe that this moment had come. Until recently, this day had seemed so far away, but here it was. The days had slipped by so quickly since she had received the letter with the Head Girl badge. Where had the summer gone? Seventh year. Where had the past seven years gone?
Lily took her violin case from her father and gave him a one armed embrace.
"I'll miss you," he whispered in her ear.
"You know it's only until Christmas."
"But still " Mr. Evans gazed at his daughter. "You've grown up so much. Remember the first time we brought you here?"

"Where are you taking me?" Lily asked as she stumbled along blindfolded. James had woken her up early that morning with only a few short sentences.
"Get dressed. Harry's at Padfoot's with Remus. And you need to put this on." He had handed her one of their old Gryffindor ties and had left the room to make some loud noises. Or finish whatever his plans were. Lily guessed at the former.
The wind blew cold air on them so Lily knew they were outside somewhere. Luckily they weren't moving too fast or else she would have fallen down on the uneven ground by now. "James?"
"Almost there, Lily," he answered in an excited voice.
They continued to walk for a few more minutes and then James pulled the tie off. They were standing in a clearing in the woods off of their house. She'd been here too many times to count. "James " she started to say but was cut off when the tall man hurried away from her and picked up

That she was nothing, when they all knew that she was one of the best in the class.

She hadn't gone to any of her other classes, she didn't even stay in the castle, despite the fact that snow was beginning to fall. She folded her arms over her chest, hands tucked in close to keep them warm as she walked, the freshly fallen snow crunching under her shoes as she walked to her favorite place to think and get away.
It was on the banks of the lake, a small part of land stuck out into the lake and it reminded her of

She had just aced a test in Transfiguration (which was far from her best subject), and Amos Diggory, her boyfriend, had promised that he would go for a walk with her around the lake. As she wandered around the room, humming softly and picking up a stray sock here and there, a folded note that sat in the center of her pillow caught her eye.

Lily reread the single sentence several times, trying to figure out who might have written it.

Eventually though, curiosity won over, and Lily left the room.

It was a magical place I could go and feel alive with friends. I could believe in everything, than anything was possible, even when there wasn't any light of hope left. I found comfort and security on Harry's side. I found loyalty and trust in Ron. I learned to be strong with Hermione. I learned to stand up against my enemies and my friends with Neville.

It was a cold Christmas Eve, so the fire in James' flat was brewing. The walls were thin, and there were holes around the windows and doors, making it ten times colder in the one bedroom flat.
"Engorgio," James muttered at the fire, and the fire magically went from a small kindling to a roaring, cheerful fire full of reds and oranges. He sat by the fire, in the floor, waiting for Lily. He hated to think of his girlfriend having to walk out in the intense, almost tundra-like cold alone on Christmas Eve, not with her own family. Even though she would probably look adorable with rosy red cheeks and nose. Laughing quietly at the vision, a light knock sounded at the door. James looked up from is memoir, and smiled.

Bellatrix turned, her heavy-lidded eyes widening at the sight of him. It pleased Sirius to see that Azkaban had taken its toll on Bellatrix as well. His cousin, who was once so glamorous and beautiful, was sickly pale with hollow cheeks, long tangled hair, sunken eyes and rotten teeth. There seemed to be an air of madness surrounding her.
"Long time no see," he continued, still grinning. "You look terrible."
Bellatrix's lip curled, and she bellowed, "Stupefy!"
Sirius blocked her spell and barked out a laugh.

Sirius swung his legs over the side of the couch and sat up. "No, James, I'm bloody brilliant. It can be our legacy or whatever.

"What would that be, Severus?" Dumbledore looked at him, the same quizzical look on his face that he had worn earlier.
"First, why bother with all of the enchantments if there is a back door to the chamber where the stone is hidden?"
"Ah." Dumbledore smiled knowingly. "That doorway can only be opened by the headmaster. I'm not really sure why. It is one of Hogwarts' many secrets, I suppose."

The Potions Master looked up from his gently simmering cauldron to see the Headmaster standing in the doorway of the dungeon.
Dumbledore held up a rather shabby package wrapped in brown paper. "It has arrived." He brought it over to the table where Snape stood, and placed it on the table. "Just in time, too, for I have received a letter that an attempt has already been made." He pulled a letter out of his pocket and set it next to the little package. It was addressed to Dumbledore from the Head Goblin of Gringotts.
"So, this is really it then?" Snape asked, barely brushing the package with the tips of his fingers. When the Headmaster didn't object, Snape gingerly picked it up and removed the wrappings. A small, somewhat unimpressive, blood-red red stone sat in his hand.
It was completely unremarkable except for the way it reflected the fire under Snape's cauldron. The flames seemed to dance across the surf
