-The Harry Potter series is NOT mine. It belongs to J. K. Rowling. Anything that you recognize belongs to J. K. Rowling. OC's (original characters) will pop up in here. Some of those OC's will eventually become married to a known character of J. K. Rowling, and I guess that character will become J. K. Rowling's, as they are mentioned in the books.
-Some plants mentioned in here are real, such as the betel nut, and Ratsbane. No one can legally claim the plants except for Mother Nature. However, I must credit a book called WICKED PLANTS: THE WEED THAT KILLED LINCOLN'S MOTHER & OTHER BOTANICAL ATROCITIES for all the information that I got about them. The book is written by Amy Stewart, and I claim no rights.
-I also don't own the movie The Sound of Music, produced by Robert Wise.
A/N: Hi! I am finally up-to-date!
IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE COMPLETELY RE-DONE CHAPTERS AHEAD OF THIS CHAPTER, GO BACK AND READ THEM RIGHT NOW. I HAVE CHANGED A LOT AND A LOT OF NEW CHARACTERS ARE IN HERE!
School's out, and I already have summertime sadness. Luckily, my friends and I are having a get-together pool party! Here is another chapter. Disclaimer above; read it. I need a little help coming up with some really cool prank ideas; if you have one you want to include in this story (it has to be doable, so nothing including the Underground), please tell me via PM or review. I love prank ideas! Enjoy the chapter. (Includes a mild and stupid prank. I got this idea from a skit that some kids in my school performed.)
Saturday September 10, 1977 (Hermione's 9th day in the Past)
I jolt upright, my wand in my hand and ready to duel. Luckily (or unluckily, take your pick), it's only Mondita.
"It's Hogsmeade Weekend!" she screams, jumping up and down and clapping her hands. She grabs Julie's hands and they dance around.
Kalante raises his head in confusion, but seeing that it's only these two cuckoo-birds, puts it back down. He's not the only one who is annoyed.
The bundle of blankets on Merida's bed groans and turns over, hands snaking out and pulling a pillow under the covers, undoubtedly to block out all the chaos the two are creating.
Eventually, the two girls have roused everyone with their singing and dancing.
"Will you two put a cork in it, or will I have to jam my sneakers into your mouths?" Amber bellows, her eyes blazing.
Julie and Mondita's eyes widen and they stop singing, standing up straight just like soldiers. Well, they know who is boss.
"Sit down," Amber barks.
The two do as commanded.
"Great," Sam mutters, "you not only have woken everybody up, but you started Amber off on a bad foot."
Amber glares at her before turning back to a paling Mondita and Julie. She takes a few deep breaths.
Well, at least she is cooling down.
"MONDITA SHIRLEY GLASS AND JULIE LAUREN FAYRE! YOU SHOULD KNOW BETTER THAN TO DO THAT IN THE MORNING. NEVER IN MY LIFE HAVE I EVER MET SOMEONE SO RUDE AS TO WAKE PEOPLE UP IN THE MORNING BY SINGING LIKE SWINE AND DANCING LIKE HIPPOS. FURTHERMORE, IT'S A WEEKEND, AND SOME PEOPLE LIKE TO SLEEP!"
Ouch. I think that my hearing just went out the window.
Amber stands in front of us, glaring daggers at us. Suddenly, a smile takes the place of the angry expression on her face.
"So," she says, seating herself, "what's the plan for Hogsmeade Weekends?"
Merida interrupts us all, taking my place tapping on the doorframe.
"Let's go to grab some breakfast; then we can plan out our stops and stuff.
Everyone agrees and we exit the room and the common room in search of food.
"Hey Jamsie-Boy," I call with a grin, "you've been neglecting your besties!"
James laughs and gives me a noogie.
However, his fun is short-lived, especially when one super-werewolf comes over and slaps him on the back.
Remus just laughs and we push and shove each other down the hall. Peter is already down at the hall, according to what Ned and Jake told us.
"So," James says, his voice dropping to a mere whisper, "wait for the cue when we get there."
"Gottcha Sarge," Remus says with a mock salute. What does Sarge mean?
We enter the hall and have a seat. Breakfast crawls by way too slow.
Finally, James stands up. Remus and I crouch down so that our feet are on the bench.
"ACTIVATE!" James roars, silencing the hall.
Remus and I jump off of the bench and stand still like soldiers.
"Go, Mission 353!"
Remus and I grin and jump up on the Hufflepuff table and tapdance. The hall roars with laughter. Peter gets ready to join us.
"Go, Mission 245!"
I launch myself at the Gryffindor table, push up, landing on the ground. Remus lands a few seconds later and we both are joined by Peter. We hop up on the Ravenclaw table and do the worm until the end of the table, where we do summersaults off; from what I can see, Peter's was a little sloppy.
"Go, Mission 190!"
With that command, we all walk over to the Slytherin table and climb up the steps that James has provided us with. But this time, instead of doing anything crazy, we just stand there.
"I said, Mission 190!" James calls, faking to be worried.
Remus, Peter and I stay still.
"I SAID, MISSION 190!"
Remus, Peter and I bend over and start to snore, much to the teachers' amusement.
James stomps over, muttering loudly about maintenance. He climbs up the stairs and pretends to wind us up with a huge key.
Once we are all wound up, we all do the robot down the stairs and take a bow. As we stand back up from our bow, the huge fan hanging from nowhere starts to spin, throwing the confetti piled on it everywhere.
As the confetti rains down, we make our way back to our seats.
The whole Gryffindor table grins as we take our confetti covered seats. The show is not quite done however, and a huge banner appears, little fireworks going off around it, inking it to say 'Happy Hogsmeade Weekend!'
After the boys' little skit, we all make our way down to our dorms.
"We should make our Hogsmeade plans," Livi says.
"No duh!" Mondita and Julie exclaim.
When we get back to the room, we sit down in a circle.
"You want to lead, Lily," I ask.
"Nah," Lily says, "I want to be an Outsider for once. How about you?"
I shrug; fine with me.
"So," I say, pulling out a piece of parchment, "who is going with a partner?"
Mindy and Amber raise their hands.
"Are you planning to be with them the whole time? We're going from 12:50-7:30."
By the end of our little meet, this is what my parchment looks like.
12:50-1:00 = CARRIAGE RIDE
1:00 = Mindy&Amber/Sirius&Jake, REST-free
2:00 = Mindy&Amber/Sirius&Jake, REST-free
3:00 = Mindy&Amber/Sirius&Jake, REST-free
4:00 = Allyssa's Hairdressing Salon, Gladrags Wizardwear, Spintwitches, The Little Things in Life, The Bookshop on the Corner, Update
5:00 = Accessorize, Honeydukes, Zonkos, Make a Statement, Dominic's Maestron, Scrivenshaft's Quill Shop, Tomes and Scrolls
7:00 = Boys and Girls - The Hog's Head, The Three Broomsticks Inn
7:00-7:30 = RETURN TO CARRIAGES
Before we know it, Hogsmeade hour approaches us.
"Alright," I call, "get anything you need and let's head down to the hall for lunch; we'll go straight to the carriages afterwards."
Sam grabs her violin and Liesel grabs her trunk.
"No need for that," Mondita says, "we'll be getting you a new one."
Liesel protests all the way down to the Great Hall, but Mondita and Julie just talk louder over her voice. Eventually, Liesel gets the point and stops complaining.
When the food appears, I survey the options before taking a little bit of this and that. When I feel like it is a perfectly balanced meal, I start eating. See? I do have some concepts of health.
Finally, after much wait and much hassle, it is time to get to the carriages. When we learn that at the most, there are four to a carriage, we split up. Mondita, Julie, Jenny, and Livi get into the first carriage; Sam, Liesel, and Amber into the next; Lily, Alice, Mindy, and I go in the last.
It only takes two minutes for everyone other than us to get seated; we're off.
A/N: Alright; this is last call for answering my question of who Hermione should go with. I need to know this for the next chapter to be posted! I am currently having Hermione go with no one, but she can go join either Remus or Charlie. Take your pick, or we will just stick to the plan up above. Sound good? Hope so.
I am not special; just a limited edition.
