Point of View
Albus Dumbledore sat at his desk as he pondered his newest professor. Willow Rosenberg was currently in the company of two of her closest friends, her family. When they had first arrived at Hogwarts Albus had been surprised. To see William the Bloody looking after a young girl was something that he never expected to witness in his long life. But he had directed them to Willow's rooms and then to her classroom.
"Albus, they're here" came a voice and Dumbledore looked up at Minerva who stood in front of his desk just as the three people in question walked out of the staircase, all looking a little tired.
"Headmaster" Willow greeted and then turned to Spike and Dawn, "I guess you've already met" she summarised and so she sat down as Dumbledore motioned for them to sit.
Dawn sat down in-between Willow and Spike and she was slightly nervous but Willow smiled assuredly at the girl.
"I am well aware of the situation that you are all in and by no means are you unwelcome here. In fact I believe that Miss Summers may be able to attend Hogwarts"
Willow only looked slightly surprised but Dawn herself was quite shocked, "Me?" she squeaked and her eyes darted from Dumbledore to Willow and Spike. "But I'm not magical, I'm just the research girl, that's what I'm good for" she began, slightly rambling,
"On the contrary, I believe that you have the capacity to be quite powerful when it comes to magic. It might be best if Ms Rosenberg explains it too you"
Willow smiled slightly and turned to Dawn, "Dawnie, I think what Albus is trying to say is, that because you were created from magical energy their could be a chance that you have the ability to channel that power."
"With the assistance of a wand which would act as a focusing tool it is quite possible that you can perform magic" Dumbledore continued and Dawn sat there in shock.
"This would mean that you would have to be sorted' Minerva spoke up, as she had been silent most of the time. "But of course it would be up to you"
Dawn sat there for a moment before looking at Dumbledore, "I want to do it," she announced "I mean I'm guessing that we're going to be staying here with Willow anyway, and it would be cool, me working the magic mojo" Dawn smiled to herself as she imagined all the cool things she would be able to do.
"Professor, I'm guessing that this was not the only reason you called us here" Willow questioned.
"Quite right Ms Rosenberg, as usual." Dumbledore's eyes were twinkling and he smiled, "I believe that you are entering the Demonology section of your course in Defence against the dark arts. I think that William would be quite helpful in this section so he is quite welcome to stay as well." Dumbledore took in the relief in Willow, Spike and Dawn's eyes.
"Thank you" was the only words from Spike's mouth and he sat there in silence.
"Well then, perhaps we can get Miss Summers sorted..." Dumbledore trailed off and Minerva went to get the sorting hat.
Dawn watched as an old brown hat was taken down from one of the shelves in Dumbledore's office. "This is the Sorting Hat" Minerva explained and promptly placed the hat on Dawns head.
Dawn jumped and was surprised when the hat began speaking to her,
"Ahh, what do we have here? A newcomer it seems. What is that?" The hat paused, as it looked deep inside Dawn's head, "You're a human now!" The hat was shocked but soon recovered, "You are very brave and would fit in with Gryffindor. But also smart, you were the one who researched, Ravenclaw I also see in you. Hufflepuff is the house, which all others fall into though I do not believe that is where you will shine. And at last we come to Slytherin..."
The hat paused and Dawn frowned slightly, "You are cunning and you have what it takes to become a great witch in Slytherin. Yes... and you have also seen the darkness which many Slytherins have come to accept as a normal life, but I do not see you falling into the darkness which has consumed many Slytherins throughout the many years I have sorted students."
While the sorting hat was talking to Dawn, the rest of the occupants in the room waited. That hat was certainly taking its time and was obviously deliberating what house to sort her into carefully.
"Yes, you would fit in everywhere, as that is the type of magical energy you possess. But I believe you are best suited to.... SLYTHERIN!!!" the hat called out and everyone was too shocked to speak.
"Well" Dumbledore finally spoke, "I guess someone should inform Severus of his new student."
