A/N: I know! There are a million who did this before me but I really hope that you give me a chance. This is my first fan fic so go easy on me. I'm begging you.
So…you know what to do. Read, and review. Hopefully you like it.
Disclaimer: You know the drill. Don't own Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Anything you recognize are all J.K. Rowling's.
"Lily, what is wrong with you exactly?" asked a petite round faced girl. "You said that if Potter becomes more mature, you would at least consider giving him a chance. Anyone could see that he matured over the summer. He had a real job deflating his head. And he's head boy!"
"Alice," said the red-haired girl with bright green almond-shaped eyes. "I said that I would consider giving him a chance. I'm not fully convinced with his maturity and I'm sure that it's just an act. And as I said, I considered giving him a chance and my decision is no."
"Sure, sure," muttered their friend Marlene sarcastically.
Around two months had passed and James Potter was now officially the coolest head boy ever. Due to head duties, Lily had become a bit closer to him in the past few months. It was obvious to everyone that Lily was starting to like James but she was just too stubborn to admit it. It was only a matter of time.
Lily Evans was sitting in the Gryffindor common room doing her homework when she was interrupted by none other than James Potter himself.
"Mind if we sit with you Evans?" he asked casually.
Lily just glared.
"Oh, come on Evans," moaned Sirius Black and he sat down not waiting for a reply.
The other two marauders just rolled their eyes but sat down anyways.
"Where's Peter?" asked Lily suspiciously because of the absent of their friend.
"Hospital Wing," Remus shrugged.
Lily narrowed her eyes but didn't comment. She didn't like the seating arrangements at all. It was hard to concentrate when Black and Potter kept making witty comments especially with Potter still hoping that Lily would give him a chance. Which was very likely. Not.
About half an hour later an owl came in and swooped through the open window and landed on the table Lily was using, knocking out all her parchments on the floor. Annoyed, Lily took the letter from the owl which flew towards the window.
"There's no address," she said opening the letter curiously.
Dear Mr. Potter,
James looked up. "It's my letter. Don't read it!"
"I know it's yours Potter," said Lily rolling her eyes. "But there are other names on this letter and I want to be sure that you're not up to trouble."
"I'm never up to trouble!" he said indignantly but Lily had already started reading again.
Remus looked up from his book.
"Wonder who it was from," Sirius wondered aloud.
and Miss Evans,
Lily raised her eyebrows.
Please come to my office as soon as possible together. I have something that might interest you.
"A.P.W.B.D.?" asked Sirius.
"Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore," replied Remus.
"Why would he want us in his office?" asked Sirius.
"What does he mean 'I have something that might interest you'?" asked James.
"I think that we should go now," said Lily.
They all agreed and cleared up their things before they went to the headmaster's office. Once outside the ugly stone gargoyle in front guarding the headmaster's office, James shouted "Jelly Slugs!" and the stone gargoyle sprang to life and moved aside.
They stood outside the door of Dumbledore's office. Lily knocked and they waited to hear Dumbledore's voice say "Come in," before stepping inside.
"Ah, yes," he said his bright blue eyes twinkling. "You received my owl, I presume?"
They all nodded.
"Well, you see, I called you here today because I came by a muggle book this morning entitled Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling.
"Potter?" asked James. "Hmm…I don't think I know any Harry Potter."
"I believe that that is so because this book is from the future."
"From the future –" Lily started but was cut off by Remus.
"How can it be from the future?"
"It was published in 1997."
"1997?" Sirius said.
"Yes, it was. It was sent to me by some friends from 2022 with the initials J.S.P, A.S.P., R.H.W., L.L.P., and H.R.W. Seeing as it is the last day of term before winter break today and that classes are over I thought that you could read it. Unless of course, if you'd rather not to, you would not be forced."
"Read about the future?" Sirius asked. "I'm in."
The others nodded their agreement eagerly.
"I was just wondering Professor," Lily said tentatively. "Why us?"
"I believe that you are all connected here in one way or another," Dumbledore answered. "The note also told me to invite Mr. Frank Longbottom and Ms. Alice Prewett. Minerva should be back with them any minute now."
And as if on cue, there was a knock on the door.
"Come in," bellowed Dumbledore.
Professor McGonagall entered with a round faced girl of about seventeen named Alice and her boyfriend with dark brown hair and dark eyes of about eighteen named Frank.
"Ah, Professor McGonagall you're here at last. I was just about to say where we are going to be reading."
"Where are they going to read?" asked McGonagall.
"In the Room of Requirement," he answered simply.
"But I thought that was just a myth!" said Lily.
"Well, according to the note, these young gentlemen would be able to lead the way," he said gesturing to the three marauders.
Professor McGonagall and Lily just raised their eyebrows.
Ten minutes later they found themselves in the seventh floor corridor staring at the wall opposite the tapestry of Barnabas the Barmy.
"Why are we stopping?" asked Frank.
"You'll see," grinned James and Sirius. Remus merely started pacing.
By the third time Remus passed the wall a door appeared.
"Well, this is where we leave you," said Dumbledore. "Enjoy reading. Come, Minerva, I have a nice advanced transfiguration book I'd like to show you."
Professor McGonagall gave a curt nod to the students before walking away with Dumbledore.
"Well," said James. "Let's go."
And he opened the door.
