Harry stepped off of the cold and dark station that the Hogwarts Express had recently stopped at, behind him were Hermione and Neville who looked at the station in wonder and amazement as they were all shepherded together with the other first year students.
The three children were in their Hogwarts robes but Hermione and Neville were cold and freezing as Harry was not which they asked him about as they were all being lead to a set of rowing boats and being lead by a large man by the name of Hagrid who Harry remembered from his parents journal/diaries' about how Hagrid was a large but kind man who was Loyal to Dumbledore.
Harry replied to his new friends as he explained about the spells that he had added onto his robes which made Hermione and Neville complain about how they had not thought of asking about that to which Harry replied "I can place a temporary warming charm that can help you keep warm" the two of them nodded as Harry took out his wand and cast the charm "Temporaria calor" a lightly reddish glow smoothly layered itself on both children and friends of Harry.
They both gave a sigh of relief as they thanked Harry who nodded in return for their gratitude, the three of them got onto a boat with another student who Harry vaguely recognised as the girl he had seen at Diagon Alley.
The little boats soon set off with a shout of "FORWARD" from Hagrid which made the boats begin to somehow automatically move across the water's surface all by their selves, Harry turned to the girl beside him and said politely "Hi I'm Harry, what's your name?" the girl turned to Harry and said back smiling "Hi my names Lisa Turpin" Hermione introduced herself and so did Neville as they all talked about what they wished to see and what house they would like to be in.
They were halted from their conversation by Hagrid as he called out "Right then, Yeh'll get yer firs' sight o' Hogwarts in a sec, its jus' round the bend here". After a moment there was a chorus of Oooooh's as all of the first years saw the castle for the first time.
Harry thought that the description did not do it justice from the book, the same was thought by many of the children in the boats, Harry quickly caught Neville as he had nearly went over the side which the round faced boy had blushed a bit at and thanked Harry for the assist.
The castle was amazing though as the narrow path had opened suddenly onto the edge of a great black lake and perched atop a high mountain on the other side, its windows sparkling in the starry sky, was a vast castle with many turrets and towers – Hogwarts.
Harry watched as Neville's toad Trevor tried to make an escape into the lake but Harry quickly grabbed him and gave him back to Neville who berated the toad for his mischief which the toad responded with a long croak which made everyone in the boat chuckle at the scene as Harry said to Neville "About the tank for him, you might want to ask one of the teachers like Professor McGonagall, Professor Flitwick or both of them for help as I am sure that they would oblige if you asked them nicely."
Neville nodded as he kept a grip on Trevor so that he would not try and escape again, Harry would have done it for him but he did not want to reveal how much he could do with magic as he would slowly show his skills so that there would not be any suspicion and have many of the people think that he was simply a good student with a lot of talent.
Harry and the now group of four saw that they were nearly at the castle as they saw a low arch which Hagrid shouted about saying "Heid's doon, n dinnie try any funny stuff" Harry and the group followed the order as they ducked their heads down from the low arch on the lake which afterwards the boats seemed to lead through a small dark tunnel that lead towards a harbour at the bottom of the castle's cliff face.
They all got off of their boats when Hagrid told them too and soon followed the large man to a stair passageway that seemed to connect up to the castle, after a few moments they had reached the top of the stairway and were now passing through a large metal gateway that had a large H on the top and as they all went through it the gates door closed up behind them.
Harry saw that they were headed for the castles main pathway as they all entered the castle through the grounds, they all followed the stairs that lead to what looked to be Hogwarts Entrance Hall to Harry's knowledge of the castle from which Harry could see that they were on the ground floor of the castle.
Harry was snapped out of his thoughts by Hagrid knocking on the large oak door that looked to be very tall and wide, the door opened and out came a strict looking, dark haired elderly witch who wore emerald green robes and a stern face.
Harry immediately recognised the witch as Minerva McGonagall, Deputy Headmistress and head of Gryffindor house which from Harry's father's Journal's he knew was a very strict woman and not someone you would want to get on their bad side.
Hagrid spoke to the professor "The firs' years, Professor McGonagall", the slightly elderly witch nodded and replied to him "Thank you Hagrid, I will take them from here." Hagrid nodded and went through another set of doors which Harry knew was the Great hall entrance doors, The professor spoke to the first years after leading them into a small room which was just off of the Great Hall "Welcome to Hogwarts, the start of term banquet will begin shortly but before you take your seats in the Great Hall, you will be sorted into your houses. The Sorting is a very important ceremony because, while you are here, your house will be something like your family within Hogwarts. You will have classes with the rest of your house, sleep in your house dormitory rooms, and spend free time in your house common room."
She paused and continued speaking "The houses that you will/may be sorted into will be Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin. Each house has it's own noble history, each has produced outstanding witches and wizards. While you are at Hogwarts, your triumphs will earn your house points, while any rule breaking will lose house points. At the end of the year, the house with the most points is awarded the house cup, a great honour this is to your house. I hope that each of you will be a credit to whichever house becomes yours, The Sorting Ceremony will take place in a few minutes in front of the rest of the school. I suggest you all smarten yourselves up as much as you can while you are waiting".
Her eyes seemed to look over other students that had less than presentable looks like the red haired boy which Harry remembered to watch out for, and another boy with his cloak around his ears for some strange reason. The professor spoke after looking over the students once more "I shall return when we are ready for you, Please wait quietly until then".
She left the chamber after that, leaving the other students to talk to one another as Harry heard the red haired boy with a now noticeable brown smudge on his nose say loudly "My older brothers told me that we get sorted from dealing with a troll" the students were getting more nervous and scared after hearing this which caused Harry to roll his eyes thinking "How stupid do you have to be to believe that kind of joke, the idiot probably was being fooled around by the kids older brothers, anyway we have to get sorted by the magical hat created by the founders themselves but mainly Godric Gryffindor so that the student can be helped/assisted in making their choice of house or be immediately sorted to said houses from their most dominant feature or emotions which will correlate with their house's standards."
Harry was snapped out of his musings by a shout of surprise as they all turned and saw a whole group of ghosts which some of the children were frightened to see but Harry was not as he knew that the ghosts would not harm any student as is their rule not to, Harry listened in on their argument which seemed to be about the resident pranking Poltergeist Peeves who Harry knew from his father's Journal entries about the pranking spectral life-form.
Harry saw that the group of ghosts seemed to have noticed the first year students as one of them in monk styled robes spoke to them all smiling cheerfully "New students attending and about to be sorted then?" a few students nodded as he introduced himself "I am the Friar or Fat Friar as said by some students, hope to see some of you in Hufflepuff as it is my old house you know" Harry decided to be courteous as he stepped forward drawing some odd looks from others which Harry ignored as he spoke to the Friar bowing slightly at first "Honourable Friar, we thank you for your introduction and I know that your noble house will have many great Witches and Wizards in it's future and today".
The Friar nodded and bowed as he said "Your Gratitude is appreciated young Wizard and pupil of Hogwarts and I hope to see you while you attend this magnificent school" Harry stepped away nodding back and saw that Professor McGonagall had watched the whole conversation with a raised eyebrow as she shook her head and said "Move along now, form a line and follow me" Harry followed along with the other students who some of them still gave him odd looks.
The students arrived at a large golden crafted double door back in the entrance hall, the doors opened automatically to show a magnificent hall that Harry watched amazed as they all walked through it as it was lit by thousands and thousands of candles that were floating in midair over four long tables, where the rest of the students were sitting.
These tables were laid with glittering golden plates and goblets and at the top of the hall was another long table where the teachers were sitting as Professor McGonagall led the first years up there, so that they came to a halt in a line facing the other students, with the teachers behind them. The hundreds of faces staring at them looked like pale lanterns in the flickering candlelight and dotted here and there among the students, the ghosts of Hogwarts shone misty silver.
Harry looked upward towards the ceiling as he remembered something about it in his books, the sky seemed to open up and show a black sky like the outside was as there were many shining white stars twinkling below everyone which made it look spectacular.
Harry looked back down again as he heard Hermione comment about how the sky was enchanted to look like the outside sky and where she read it as Harry whispered "You may want to hold your comments until we are sorted as some people are looking annoyed at your interruption of them all looking around" Hermione blushed and muttered back an apology.
Harry looked ahead of the crowd of other first years and saw that Professor McGonagall had returned with a stool, a long parchment made list which Harry guessed was the student names and hat which Harry knew as the Sorting Hat which was looking rather ratty and worn out but he guessed that it was meant to show the age of the hat or the teachers forgot to repair the Hats already enchanted yet worn-out leather.
The hat bellowed out a song of it's own basically outlining each house's creed and what they meant and after that Harry heard the red haired boy speak in a slight whisper that Harry was able to pick up which sounded furious "We've just gotta try on a hat, I'll kill Fred for telling me that we had to fight a troll" Harry covered up a snort with a cough as he was amused at the prank placed on the red haired boy by the boy's older sibling as he would like to meet him.
Harry listened as Professor McGonagall spoke to the first years "When I call your name you will put on the hat and sit on the stool to be sorted". She paused as she shouted out the name of the first student on her list by saying their last name first "Abbott, Hannah!", a pink-faced girl with blonde pigtails stumbled out of the line of students and placed on the hat as she sat on the stool.
The hat was covering the girls eyes as the hat shouted after a moment "HUFFLEPUFF" as said house's table cheered for her as the Abbott girl took the hat off and handed it back to McGonagall, then she ran to her new house while her robes changed colour from the standard black tie and Hogwarts Crest to a double coloured tie of Black and Yellow with the crest of a black badger behind a background of Yellow in the shape of a kind of shield.
Harry knew from his parents records that it was just the parting magic of the Sorting Hat as it changed the uniform of the Hogwarts robe which will allow the rest of the school robes, to be magically changed, that belong to the sorted student as it uses the magic of the castle's wards and the surrounding ambient magic to gently alter them so that they do not need to be re-bought.
Professor McGonagall continued her list of each new first year as they were sorted into their school houses, Harry made sure to make a note of each student with his Occlumency powers and soon after it was Hermione's turn as she eagerly made her way up to the stool and took the hat, placing it excitedly onto her head which after a while the hat shouted "RAVENCLAW" the house cheered as Hermione made her way to the houses table while handing the hat back and Harry cheered for Hermione as the noise quietened down and McGonagall continued her list of students.
After another round of students it was Neville's turn as he walked up slightly nervous but determined as Harry had helped him with his choices and confidence a bit while they had talked on the train also telling him that he needed to show that he was not weak in front of others which might cause Neville to be bullied by those who wished to do so, Neville sat on the stool and had the hat placed on his head which after quite some time the hat shouted "RAVENCLAW."
Neville took the hat off seeming relieved and handed the hat back to the professor while making his way to the cheering house of Ravenclaw students as Hermione hugged him as he sat down next to her which made Neville blush as he was hugged, Harry turned back and listened to the sorting as he saw that the arrogant blonde haired boy from the robe shop whom is now known as Draco Malfoy, appeared to swagger up to the stool like some sort of snobbish prince of royalty and sit on the stool as even before the hat barely touched his head it shouted "SLYTHERIN" as the boy smirked and again swaggered to the Slytherin table to join his house-mates.
After some more people were sorted it was Harry's turn as McGonagall called out "Potter, Harry" Harry made his way up to the stool ignoring the whispers made by the students in the Hall but he subtly saw that the Headmaster Dumbledore stand up much straighter to closely watch Harry's sorting which made Harry want to roll his eyes at all of it but he concentrated as the hat was placed over his head and soon it seemed to speak with him in his mind but made a surprised noise as it said "This is a surprise Mr Potter, that you have such strong Occlumency abilities as I nearly could not speak to you with my own magic" Harry replied thinking to the Hat saying "Well I had to learn with how it was possible for others to read my mind and I know that you are bound by your makers to keep conversations and knowledge of students that you sort from others like the Headmaster unless they have passed on or are ordered by an heir of the founders which will be most unlikely to happen anytime soon" the Hat seemed to chuckle as he said back "I do know that the old man is a very sneaky and a little manipulative along with being ignorant of the smaller things such as facts about you" Harry could see what the hat meant as it seemed to have listened in and known about some of the things that the old man Dumbledore has done to Harry himself.
Harry replied "Well I think that you should sort me as I can guess that some people are getting impatient with the amount of time we both are taking but if you ever want to talk then I am more than happy to oblige", the hat seemed to mentally nod and spoke back to Harry saying "Yes thank you for the offer and I will accept it but let's get on with the sorting of you as I can clearly see that you would do well in all houses from your balanced personality but your thirst for knowledge and need to learn all that you can about this world far outweighs your other talents plus I can see that you wish to join your new friends that I had previously sorted but a word of advice, you may need to help the Longbottom heir as he is in serious need of help from you but that is all that I can say about it, so without further delay I choose your house of the intelligent and wit-fully wise," "RAVENCLAW."
Harry took the hat off and handed it back to a slightly shocked Professor McGonagall who quickly re-schooled her expression to blank as Harry made his way to the thunderous and wildly cheering house of Ravenclaw's but Harry saw that the Gryffindor house table was slightly shocked too as Harry could guess that a lot of people thought that Harry would end up in Gryffindor also from the Headmasters Goldfish impression the old man probably thought so too.
Harry sat down with his new friends Hermione and Neville as they both watched Lisa Turpin's sorting after which she was sorted into their house which they cheered too about, Harry smiled as Lisa came down and sat beside him and he watched the rest of the sorting thinking to himself "I am finally here and I'm loving it."
That is it for this chapter as the next one will involve Harry getting to know about his new house and his first day of classes along with a small section detailing the reactions and thoughts of a certain annoying Headmaster.
