This is my first fanfic so please review. Tell me if I should continue.
I've updated the first chapter because there was a few errors.
Albus Dumbledore stood at the foot of a very large, oak table, which took
its place in the centre of a dark dungeon. Around the table were over 70
men and women, all bearing grave expressions on their faces. "It is
settled" Dumbledore announced "The slayer and her friends will come to
Hogwarts to work in the school and protect the students from Voldemort.
Hundreds of miles away, in Sunnydale California, aka. The Hellmouth, the
Scooby Gang Sat at the table in the Magic Box. Willow's recent attack on
the world had made all the big demons out of Sunnydale and everything was
quiet. To tell the truth, everyone was bored out of his or her minds. They
couldn't get their minds off what Willow had revealed to them the day
before. "Me and Tara-we weren't in love. We just needed each other for
comfort. She was more of a friend and I depended on her. When she, she was
s-shot, I lost it. I let the power and the darkness control me and I didn't
think. God, I'm so sorry." She had cried until she ran out of tears and
then she just sat there for hours and days, her expression blank. She was
lost in her own guilty thoughts. At times, she felt an icy cold washing
over her. It was at that time she couldn't touch or look at anything. She
had gone cold turkey on magic and she had so much magic in her system that
sometimes she couldn't stop it from coming out. Thing were known to turn
invisible when she touched them. She waited anxiously for the magic to
become controlled in her body.
Spike had returned with a soul and was now doing an Angel-brooding in his
crypt. And, on top of that, Buffy still didn't love him. Anya had gone back
to England with Giles, to provide vengeance to the English female
population. Dawn and Buffy were just doing their best to help everyone.
Xander opened a book and stared at it, not actually reading it. Most demons
had fled Sunnydale before the apocalypse and were cautious in returning.
Suddenly, a tawny owl swooped in and dropped a letter on the book. Xander
jumped a foot in the air and let out a girlish scream. Everyone was silent
for a minute, until the whole room burst into laughter at Xander, who was
turning a colour that would match willows hair. Buffy was laughing
hysterically and Dawn had her face buried in Buffys shoulder, clutching her
sides. It was a whole minute until they noticed the letter again and the
apparently pissed off owl. Buff picked up the letter. It was quite heavy
and the envelope was made of a yellowish parchment. The address was written
The Scooby Gang,
The magic box
Buffy opened the letter. The words were written in green ink on the same
parchment. She began reading aloud.
Dear Ms. B Summers, Ms. W Rosenburg and Mr. A Harris.
I am the Headmaster at Hogwarts School of witchcraft and wizardry. We, In
the wizarding world are approaching a time of great danger. Voldemort has
risen to almost full strength and we believe he will strike sometime soon.
Therefore, we are in desperate need of your services. One of our students
has already died and we believe Harry potter is in great need of
protection, along with all the other students. We are would be pleased to
give you teaching jobs in the castle, along with an old acquaintance of
yours who has already accepted our offer. We are also delighted to inform
you that, although she is not a witch, Dawn has been accepted into the
school. If you choose to come there is a list of all the things that she
will need. Also Rubeus Hagrid will meet you in London on the 26th of July
to help you purchase the necessary items. Please reply as soon as possible.
"The other piece of parchment contains a list of all the things that
Dawn'll need at Hogwarts." Buffy informed them. There was a silence, which
Xander broke. "So, let me get this straight. A complete stranger- who
happens to be a wizard-is offering us a job teaching magic in his castle.
In England? Cool!" "So we can go then?" Dawn asked hopefully. "I don't know
if its safe, or a trick" Buffy said, confused. "Will, whaddya think?"
Willow looked up. She looked worried. "Voldemort's rising" she whispered to
herself. She looked up at Buffy. "We have to go" she told her urgently.
Buffy was confused. "Huh? Will, who's his voldie guy. What's Hogwarts. What
are you talking about? Willow retreated to the bookshelf and pulled out 2
books. ""Hogwarts: A History" and "the Rise and fall of the Dark Arts."
They should explain it all. If Voldemort is really back then we're all in
A month later, they were at Kings cross-station. They had met Hagrid just
days before and Dawn had taken an immediate shine to him. He thought she
was great. Dawn had the thing in her that made her everyone's pet-Angel;
Cordelia, Oz, Spike and Tara had all loved her. Hagrid had showed them
around Diagon Alley. Gringotts, Ollivanders, and many other shops had been
visited. Xander had bought Dawn a Tawny owl for her birthday and willow had
bought her some wonderful magic books focusing on quidditch, which Hagrid
had told her she must read about. She was entranced by the people and
things she saw, and so was everyone else. Buffy found a store with
beautiful weapons in it and Willow found rare books on demons and sent them
to Giles. She still wasn't her old self but she was recovering well.
They had stayed in the Leaky Cauldron until now-Sept. 1st. Hagrid had told
them how to get onto platform 9 and ¾ but they were still nervous. Dawn
thought she was going to be sick with anticipation. Buffy volunteered to go
first and they watched in wonder as she ran straight through the wall. Dawn
went next. She ran towards the wall and closed her eyes. She half-expected
to run into the wall but it never happened. She opened her eyes and saw
that she was standing on a platform. A red train stood before her, smoke
billowing from it. Students milled around everywhere. Xander and Willow had
come through now and their expressions were the same as Buffy's, who were
standing beside her-amazement. "Whoa, this is SO cool" Xander muttered.
They made their way to the train and a young boy with a prefect badge
stopped them. "Are you the new professors" he asked meekly. Willow nodded.
"Your compartment is near the front of the train." He eyed dawn "But the
girl will have to stay with the other students." Dawn felt sick. she was
gonna have to spend the whole journey away from the guys with a whole bunch
of strangers. Willow put her hand on Dawn's shoulder.
"Are you ok with that, Dawnie" she asked concerned. Dawn managed a small
"Sure, I'll be fine".
She grabbed her trunk and headed into the Hogwarts Express. There was only
one compartment free. There was a girl and 2 boys in there. They were
conversing in low voices, very seriously. She cleared her throat. They
looked up, startled. "Sorry, is there anyone sitting here. Everywhere else
is full." They shook their heads. She sighed in relief and collapsed onto
"I'm Dawn," she said to them. "I um, transferred from California."
"I'm Harry," said a boy with dark hair and glasses.
"And this is hermione and Ron."
"Harry potter?!" she exclaimed. He looked a bit annoyed.
"Cool! Can I see your scar?" He pulled up his fringe to reveal a lightning-
" That rocks. My sister has a scar on her neck from a vampire bite but it
doesn't look half as cool as that." They stared at her. Ron looked deeply
impressed. "You mean your sister was bitten by a vampire and survived."
"Whoa". She giggled.
Hermione spoke up. "You must be awfully good at magic to transfer here.
What school were you in"
"Oh, I'm not a witch! I'm a muggle-is that the word? - My sister and her
friends are teaching here this year so I'll be attending the school. They
aren't magic either. Well, except Willow but she doesn't really use it
anymore and now I'm rambling and I'm gonna shut up now." Hermione gasped
and then grinned.
Ron smiled "Imagine what Malfoy's gonna be like! A muggle student, muggle
professors." Harry and Hermione laughed. Hermione frowned "I wonder, How
many new professors is there gonna be this year. Dawn?"
"Well there's my sister- Professor Summers, Will- professor Rosenberg,
Professor Harris and some old friend of ours but we don't know who that is"
Soon they were chatting like old friends. Harry & Ron told Dawn all about
the wizarding world and Hogwarts. When they had finished, Hermione had a
thoughtful look on her face. "Dawn, can I ask you a question?"
"How come you and your sister are here. I mean you're muggles and this is
a wizarding school?"
Dawn frowned slightly. How could she explain this? She didn't know if she
was secret identity girl or not. Oh well.
"Experience" she said with a shrug.
Over the next hour, Dawn met Fred, George and Ginny.
Willow visited her at about one o clock to tell them that there would be a
delay. They were going to be very late and should probably get some rest.
Dawn was worried about Willow. She was still very weak, emotionally and
physically and Dawn doubted that going back to magic, even basic magic was
wise. Ron looked out the window. "If hope there's no more bloody dementors
this year." Harry and Hermione nodded. Dawn frowned and shrugged. She
settled back onto her chair. They had only been in England for two days and
she was still a bit jet lagged. Hermione looked at her, worried. "Are you
"Mmmm. Jet lag" she replied sleepily. With that, she fell asleep.
Dawn met up with the gang and they travelled by boat to get to the castle.
The castle was breathtaking. Ivy hung over their heads and the full moon
cast a glow over the lake. Willow looked up. "Full moon" she muttered.
Buffy, Xander & Dawn cast looks at each other. A stern-looking teacher met
them at the steps of the castle.
She brought them to a small room near a big hall, which they saw the
students enter into. The teacher left them and they waited in the room in
A few minutes later, a man entered the room who could only be Albus
Dumbledore. He was so old that he seemed to be withering before their very
eyes. He had long hair and a long beard that reached down to his feet. He
wore robes of deep purple and had a kind face. His blue eyes twinkled from
behind his moon-rimmed glasses. He gave the impression of having great
power. He smiled at them. "The sorting will begin momentarily. Dawn, you
will be placed in one of four houses. Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Slytherin and
Ravenclaw." Dawn nodded. She had read about the houses. Dumbledore
continued "you will participate in most classes, and in the ones that you
cannot, such as Transfiguration and Charms, you can watch." He looked at
the three adults, "As I said, we will need you three to patrol the
corridors at night and to watch over all the students, especially Harry
Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasely. You should also beware of Fred
and George Weasley. They're famous for their pranks. Now, Ms. Summers-"
"Please call me Buffy"
"Alright buffy, you will be teaching DADA with the other Professor and help
with Willow, do you think you think you could teach "other magical studies"
classes. They are new." Willow nodded. "Xander, you will be teaching
"Muggle studies" and helping in "Potions" and "Care of magical creatures"
with Hagrid and the new Professor l." Xander nodded. "Buffy spoke up,
"Professor Dumbledore, who is the new professor. they weren't on the train,
and you said we knew him or her"
"Please, call me Albus. He will be coming to the school tomorrow. He has to
take certain precautions. Now, if you'll follow me, we better get going. I
believe the sorting has already started" The followed him into the Great
Hall. The room was the size of their whole house. The ceiling showed the
dark sky, the stars and the bright moon. The sorting had already started.
An old hat was placed on the students' heads and they would be told what
house to go to. Everyone stared at them as they entered and Dawn felt her
cheeks turning red. Dumbledore brought them all up to sit at the head table
until the sorting finished. When it was over he stood up and addressed the
students. "As you see, we have a new student transferring from America.
Dawn is not a witch, she is a muggle" The students whispered urgently to
each other. Dumbledore ignored this " She does though, have great
experience in magic and demons." He motioned to Dawn to sit on the stool.
She did so and put the hat on her head. She almost jumped when a voice
spoke in her ear. "Hmm well you are an unusual girl. You are not even pure
human. But you are real now and you possess real traits. You are quite
sneaky but your strength lies in your courage and bravery. Therefore, I
think you should be in GRYFFINDOR!" She breathed a sigh of relief. She did
not want to be in Slytherin. Besides Harry, Ron and hermione were in
Gryffindor. The room was deathly silent as she walked down to the table.
Then the Gryffindors burst into applause, followed by the Ravenclaws and
Hufflepuffs. The Slytherins stayed sitting, stony-faced.
Dumbledore spoke up again.
"Now, I'm sure you're all wondering about the year ahead. Dawn is here
because her sister, Professor Summers and Professors Harris and Rosenberg
and another professor are the new teachers in this school this year. As I
already told you, Dawn is a muggle. So are Professor Harris and Professor
Summers. But please don't doubt them. I know that you must be quite alarmed
and your parents may not be all that supportive, but in light of recent
events, we must bring in the best, and these people are the best in the
entire world. They are here to protect all of you and they will be
patrolling the corridors each and every night. I warn you not to cross
them. They are very powerful and dangerous, I believe. Now, its time to
The plates on the tables immediately filled with food. Dawn was amazed but
she hid it because she was aware of hundreds of pairs on her. Harry nudged
her "Told you, malfoy would freak." She followed his gaze until it rested
on a pale boy with slick blond hair. He was looking at her with distaste
and his fists were shaking in anger. Dawn sniggered. After a while, the
students went back to talking to themselves. Hermione leaned over to her.
"Don't worry," she said with a sympathetic smile, "most of us are muggle-
born or have muggle relatives. I'm muggle-born and Harry grew up with
muggles. And, if anyone like malfoy calls you something like a mudblood,
then stuff him. He's a total jerk." Dawn smiled. "Thanks. Anyway, on to
more important issues." They shared a look and she grinned mischievously.
"I wonder how much malfoy spends per day on hair gel?" they all laughed.
Well what do ya think? In the next chapter you'll find out about the new
professor (I've already given a hint!) Tell me who you think it is, please.
It will also show the first day of class
