Time for Prehistoric Magic School Year, I'm sorry for taking so long but with school and other fanfic ideas, I think it's time to get back into it.
Waking up Ash and Aelita sat at their table looking at their new schedules, "Wow Dumbles is trying too hard," Jake said, "Most of your classes involve a Gryffindor or two in your classes," Aelita said. "Are you going to enter the Tournament?" Cedric asked, "Please I like to live," Jake scoffed, "But what about the gold and the glory?" Lavender asked, "Please I'm already famous due to my original name and the gold well there are more important things in this world," Jake answered. Hearing wings flapping everyone looked up to see the messenger birds towards their owners, and seeing Shirubā fly towards him Jake raised his arm, "So what do you have for me today?" Jake wondered opening the letter and looking over the contents.
"So what does it say?" Cedric asked as everyone listened in, "Ozpin said that with his work on the International Council he's sending Glynda in his place and while at Hogwarts I can enter the Tournaments I'll be fighting under Beacon's flag," Jake replied causing those from Hogwarts were nervous.
In Charms class, Professor Flitwick taught his class the Summoning Charm, "Remember everyone the incantation is Accio (AK-key-oh)," the small professor explained walking around the class. Already knowing the spell, Jake already attracted different items to himself, "Excellent job Jake, 10 points to Hufflepuff," Flitwick declared, "Now if you don't mind can you help me teach the spells to the others?" he asked. Walking around Jake directed his fellow students in practicing the spells. Once the bell rang, Jake went to the training room to train a bit, "Thought you would be here," Andrei said, "I have a break period so I thought I might as well get some training in," Jake said shrugging.
With his free time over, Jake headed to his DADA class when he ducked under a spell and turning around summoned his sword to block some more spells. "Alright you two this is getting tiring," he said seeing Hermione and Ron behind him, "You do know that I outmatch you both even with a hand tied behind my back," he added. "If you learn in Hogwarts then you will compete for Hogwarts," Ron said as some of the students nodded in agreement, "Wow so original," Jake said eye-rolling, "Like I've said time and time again I may have been born in England my blade is for Japan," at this point Jake was getting tired of repeating his words. Seeing the pair ready their wands Jake was gearing up to block, but it seems the counter wasn't needed as two spells passed his head turning Hermione and Ron into Weasels and turning around everyone saw the newest DADA professor with his wand out.
"You alright?" he asked, "Yeah but I had this covered," Jake said. "Even then I don't like someone being tag-teamed," Moody growled out, "Professor Moody what are you doing?" McGonagall demanded walking over to them with books in her hands, "Once more what are you doing?" she asked, "Teaching," Moody bluntly stated holding the two weasels by their tails. "Are you telling me they're students?" she asked ignoring the crowd, "Yup they decided to try and fire a spell behind Potter's back," Moody grunted out, "That is not how we punish students," McGonagall abolished dropping her books to reverse the spell. With a crack, both Hermione and Ron returned to normal wincing as they got back up, "Moody hasn't Headmaster Dumbledore inform you that we never use Transfiguration as a form of punishment," McGonagall said getting her answer as Moody scratched his chin unconcerned, "He may have mentioned it but I thought this was a better form of punishment," he said as if he was talking about the weather. "Well to remind you we give detentions or talk to the offenders Head of House," McGonagall said, "And it happens to be that I am their Head of House," Moody nodded.
"Then let's head to your office for a nice long talk," he said gripping Hermione and Ron by the arm.
At the Great Hall, Jake's group all sat down at the Hufflepuff table, "So how was Moody?" Andrei asked, "He's better than the other professors in the past that's for sure," Catherine replied. "Think you can tell us what's in store?" Jake asked seeing as he was having DADA in three days along with Andrei, who was also curious, "Sorry boys but I think it would be better if you saw it for yourselves," Catherine said as the girls giggled at the pout the guys made.
The days between then and the DADA class nothing special happened; well if you count people trying to convince Jake to stay as nothing special, "Let's head to class I want front row seats," Andrei said receiving a nod from Jake. Entering the almost empty classroom the foreign and foreign-raised students picked the seats in the very front pulling out his phone Jake went to text Zoey about a couple things when he heard the door slam open and looking up everyone saw Moody looking as frightening as ever. "Put the books away you won't need them for the class," he said causing most to sigh in relief and Hermione to pout, "Finally a fucking professor who does it his own way," Andrei cried out high fiving Jake as Moody laughed, "I knew I was going to like you both," he said. Taking out the roll sheet he scanned it while his magic eye locked on to each and every student, "From Professor Lupin it seems you're thoroughly grounded on Dark Creatures correct?" he asked receiving nods, "However it seems you are unprepared for dealing with Dark Curses. By the end of the year each and every one of you should be prepared for what to expect," Moody stated.
"You're not staying?" Ron blurted out and jumped when Moody's eye spun towards him but for what seems like minutes passing by the professor smiled. "Tell me is Arthur Weasley your father?" he asked, "He got me out of a tight spot a couple of days ago but for your question I'm only doing this as a favor for Dumbledore and after the years up I'm going back to my retirement," Moody finished with a laugh.
"Now back to the subject at hand; Curses, they come in different strength, form, and effects. According to the Ministry of Magic I'm to teach you the counter curses and leave it at that, no showing you what it looks like until you're sixth year," he said looking around the room, "But screw them all to bloody hell how are you supposed to defend if you don't know what it looks like, so with the headmasters permission I'll be teaching you a few of them," pausing he pulled something out then threw it towards Lavender and Parvati's desks, "Please put that away while I'm talking Ms. Brown," he said like he didn't just throw a knife at a student. "Now tell me do any of you know the three most dangerous curses in Wizarding history?" Moody asked looking around the room. "My dad told me about one of them . . . it's the Imperius Curse . . . I think that's what it's called," Ron hesitantly said.
"Yes, your father would know that one given as it's the curse that's been giving the Ministry a lot of trouble," Moody said revealing a glass jar with three different spiders occupying it. Holding on in the palm of his hand Moody pointed his wand at it and muttered, "Imperio," Moody, like a puppeteer, controlled the spider to follow his wand doing all sort of tricks causing everyone, Andrei and Jake not included, to laugh. "So this is funny to you?" Moody snarled causing students to jump, "Tell me would it be funny if I used the spell on all of you? Total control, I can make it do whatever I desire from the littlest of things to having it crawl down someone's throat and poison you from the inside. At the end of the first war many people pleaded that they were controlled by the Imperius Curse; however, the Curse can be fought it takes someone with a true strength of character to fight it," Moody said digging into the jar for another spider, "Any more spells?" he asked.
To most of the class's surprise Neville raised his hand up along with Hermione, "Yes, tell the class what is another Curse of the deadly trio," Moody said. "T-The Cruciatus Curse," Neville said with hate in his voice, "Your name wouldn't happen to be Longbottom would it?" Moody asked curiously getting a nervous nod, "Needs to be a bit bigger for you to get the point across," he muttered before enlarging the spider. "Crucio," pointing his wand at the spider it started to shake and twitch trying to get away but it was no use, "Stop it," Hermione shouted turning her attention somewhere else, and turning to her direction Jake could see Neville shaking knuckles white and his eyes had the sense that he was familiar to it. "Pure Pain, forget about all the torture devices you heard about the Cruciatus Curse causing the victim to feel all kinds of pain," Moody said, "Now there's one last curse is there anyone brave enough to say the name?" he asked.
"The Avada Kedavra," Jake answered, "The Killing Curse," the monotone in his voice sent shivers down everyone's spin. Without saying anything Moody released the last spider and with a roar Moody fired the Curse and while there were no visible marks everyone could see that it was dead, "You would know that one wouldn't you Potter after all you're the only survivor. The three spells you saw are known as the Unforgivable Curses, use even one on a fellow human being and it's a life sentence to Azkaban. That is what you're facing in the world beyond the halls of Hogwarts the very definition of this class I'm here to better arm you and to teach you of constant vigilance," he said before telling the class to copy the notes on the board. Hearing the bell to end class everyone packed their things and left muttering about the lesson, "Jake you alright?" Andrei asked, "I'll be fine I just need to get my mind off of class," Jake said.
Getting into bed, Jake closed the blinds and put up a privacy ward, "Hey Jake I got your text," Zoey said before she saw the look in his eye, "What happened?" she asked. "I don't want to talk about it, Zoey, I just wanted to see you and the kids," Jake replied, "No I've seen that look in your eyes and I want to talk about it," she said getting a sigh, "It's about what happened in DADA class today," Jake relented. "And what does that have anything to do with class?" she asked, "It was the three Unforgivable Curses," he explained and reading some of Jakes books in her off time Zoey was starting to get what he was talking about, "Which three?" she asked, "Death," was the only thing he had to say.
"Oh Jake," Zoey said sadden that he had to see the spell that took the lives of his parents in front of him, "Can we please change the subject," Jake begged surprising Zoey, "It must be affecting him more than I thought," Zoey thought. "Besides that how's Hogwarts so far?" she asked, "Alright I already know most of the lessons so it's just easy sailing," Jake shrugged, "So when is Beacon arriving at Hogwarts?" his wife in everything but name asked, "Not for a couple of days I think," he answered, "Oh and I found out some info on the other two schools," Jake revealed. "And that is?" Zoey asked, "Durmstrang is a co-ed school somewhat mostly focusing on the Dark Arts," Jake said but was hesitant on the other school, "Jake what's the second school?" Zoey asked, "Well Beauxbaton is mostly an all-girls school with a couple of boys here and there," Jake explained, "Anything else I should know of?" she asked trying to calm herself, "The champions are supposed to start the ball off with a dance," Jake blurted out quickly placing a silencing charm on the wards and covering his ears, "WHAT? You better not get chosen for the tournament Jake Taylor," Zoey said.
"With Sheer still on the loose along with Voldy's Death Munchers I highly doubt that I would not be involved," Jake said making Zoey bite her lips, "I got to go I'll see you later," Jake said, "Fine goodnight," Zoey said, "Tell the others I said hi," Jake replied before cutting the connection. The next couple of weeks there wasn't anything too exciting happening, classes were normal even though Moody was more demanding than those in the past when it came to DADA, and it was in that same class that everyone was surprised, "According to Dumbledore he wants me to teach you what it's like to be under the Imperius Curse so everyone get in line," Moody barked and while most of the class surrendered to the curse, "Potter your turn," Moody said allowing Jake to step forward.
"Imperio," Moody voiced and in his mindscape, the dinosaurs and the warrior spirits easily overpowered the spell that almost caused Moody to be sent back. "That's what I'm talking about," Moody barked out laughing, "The key to resisting the Imperius Curse is a strong mental defense the more you get taken by it and repel the more of a resistance you get now I want a three page essay on each of the Unforgivable by their uses and how to either dodge or counter them," Moody said.
"I'm curious is Moody always like this," Keiko wondered, "Who knows the war affected people in different ways," Aelita said shrugging. The rest of the classes were just going as normal, "Hey is it weird that Dumbles hasn't called you to his office yet?" Anna asked Jake, "He has other things to worry about with the Tournament," Jake stated.
"Well what do you know the other schools are arriving this Friday," Andrei said, "Finally I wonder whose repping Beacon," Jake said. It seems that the arrival of the other schools have put the professors on edge as well and the morning of the day of the school's arrival the Great Hall was decorated, banners of each house hanging over their respective tables, "So any idea about who's entering the Tournament?" Jake asked and since this is an important even the group were forced to sit at their respective houses. "That reminds me," Cedric said speaking up, "Professor Sprout said that the students from Beacon are welcome to sit at the Hufflepuff table," Jake nodded in understanding, "I have to ask if you do enter the Tournament will you be fighting for Hogwarts?" Hannah asked, "No even if I do get called up I'm still a student for Beacon and will be flying under Beacon's flag just like if Catherine and Andrei are to compete they'll compete under their respective schools," Jake explained.
Standing outside the rain both student and professor watched the students wondering how the other schools were going to arrive. The first to arrive was in the form of a winged horse-drawn powder blue large sized carriage, and stepping back the doors opened to reveal a woman Hagrid's size, "Madame Maxime welcome to Hogwarts," Dumbledore said, "Dumbly-dort I 'ope I find you well?" she asked in a deep voice before turning to the carriage," My Pupils," she commanded and following Maxime a dozen girls and a couple of boys revealed themselves. But before Maxime could say anything there was a noise coming from above and to the surprise to most everyone there a giant ship, and as it descended Jake smiled.
Seeing the hatch open, everyone was greeted by a blonde haired woman, "And you are?" Dumbledore asked, "Glynda Goodwitch, due Headmaster Ozpin's time being preoccupied he sent me in his stead," Glynda explained. "Alright everyone please leave the ship," she ordered and a few people showed themselves, "Tell me Headmaster Dumbledore where are my students?" Glynda asked, "Yes I was 'bout to ask the same," Maxime said, "We're here milady," Catherine said as she and appeared in front of Maxime, "Glynda – sensei Jake and Keiko present and waiting," Jake said as he and Keiko appeared. "Now we're waiting on Durmstrang," Dumbledore said but on the inside, he was seething as his chance to keep Jake in Britain was getting farther and farther away from him. "The lake," a Hogwarts student said pointing to the waters a ship rose from the depths, "Dumbledore," a man said after the students disembarked, "How are you my dear fellow?" he asked, "Blooming Professor Karakaroff," Dumbledore replied.
"If you excuse me Dumbledore can we please go inside Viktor is feeling a bit light-headed," Karakaroff said, "Of course everyone come along now," Dumbledore said allowing everyone to enter the Great Hall and the students of Hogwarts had to do a double take as there were extra tables added to their main ones. "The school of Beacon is welcomed to sit at the Hufflepuff table," Cedric voiced as Durmstrang sat at the Slytherin table and Beauxbaton sat at the Ravenclaw table. "Nice of you to finally join us," Jake said towards Leon, "What and allow you to have all the fun no way," he said with a smirk. "Well it seems that the Beauxbatons are more of a rule follower," another Beacon student said seeing that they would only sit when Maxime sat down.
"Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, ghosts and - most particularly - guests," said Dumbledore, beaming around at the foreign students. "I have great pleasure in welcoming you all to Hogwarts. I hope and trust that your stay here will be both comfortable and enjoyable."
"Who the hell would put ghosts higher than the guests?" a black haired Beacon student questioned, "He's always like this Blake so don't put any thought into it," Jake said, "Finally some actual Japanese food," he said breaking his chopsticks then went for some sushi. "Excuse me, are you wanting ze bouillabaisse?" a female asked and turning around the Hufflepuff table saw it was the girl that laughed at Dumbledore's speech and without her scarf, everyone could see her silvery-blonde hair, blue eyes, and white teeth. "Sure you can take it spicy isn't really my thing," Jake answered shrugging not seeing the look of disbelief on the girl's face, "Tell moi 're you Harry Potter?" she asked, "Actually the names Jake Taylor why do you want to know?" Jake asked raising an eyebrow and unknown to him the female in front of him started to slowly go for the top of her top, "Because I show you the wonders of Paris if you follow my every command," she said.
"Look whatever it is you're doing please stop your turning most male, if not every male, here into bubbling idiots," Jake said, "What is going on?" Maxime demanded, "I think your student here is trying to seduce me considering that she has her allure up to the max," Jake said gesturing to the male students. "By any chance are you Harry Potter?" Maxime asked, "The names Jake Taylor but yes," Jake answered.
Back at the head table, Ludo Bagman and Mr. Crouch have finally arrived and began to eat the offered food but they only stuck to Britain food more than the other kinds. "Is that dango?" Jake asked pointing to a plate, "Here you go," a short black haired girl said pushing the plate towards Jake, who quickly snatched a stick and started to eat.
"For our late arrivals we have Mr. Bartemius Crouch, Head of the International Magical Cooperation Department and Mr. Ludo Bagman, Head of the Department of Magical Games and Sports," Dumbledore announced. "They have been working hard for the past few months to arrange this event and will be joining myself, Karakoff, Maxime, and Glynda on the panel of judges, and now if you will Mr. Filch," he said gesturing for Filch to step forward holding a jewel-encrusted wooden chest. "The instructions for the tasks the champions will face this year have already been examined by Mr. Crouch and Mr. Bagman," said Dumbledore as Filch placed the chest carefully on the table before him, "And they have made the necessary arrangements for each challenge. There will be three tasks, spaced throughout the school year, and they will test the champions in many different ways . . . their magical prowess - daring - powers of deduction - and, of course, their ability to cope with danger."
"Normally there would be three champions but with Beacon Academy here as well four champions are to be selected, one from each school. They will be marked on how well they perform each task and the champion with the highest total after the final task will win the Quadwizard Cup. And how we'll be choosing the champion is with an impartial selector: the Goblet of Fire," tapping his wand on the casket the lid slowly creaked open allowing Dumbledore to showcase a worn out wooden cup. "Anybody wishing to submit themselves as champion must write their name and school clearly upon a slip of parchment and drop it into the goblet," said Dumbledore. "Aspiring champions have twenty-four hours in which to put their names forward. Tomorrow night, Halloween, the goblet will return the names of the three it has judged most worthy to represent their schools. The goblet will be placed in the entrance hall tonight, where it will be freely accessible to all those wishing to compete."
Students of all years were getting excited only for half of them to frown when Dumbledore said the next part, "To ensure that no one under the appropriate age can enter I will be drawing an Age Line around the Goblet so that only those seventeen of age can cross. And for those that do plan on entering a word of warning once your name gets called up puts you in a magically binding contract meaning that you must see the tournament to the end so think before you truly decided to enter your name. I think this is a good time to end the feast so everyone please have a good night sleep."
"Hey, Victor are you feeling alright?" Andrei asked, "I am feeling a bit better cousin," he answered surprising the people of Hogwarts. "If you want I can get a healer over to check you out," Jake offered causing Karakaroff to spin around and stare directly towards Jake's almost invisible scar, "Is there something you need Headmaster?" Jake asked, "No I just wanted to see the Boy-Who-Lived with my own eyes," he bristly said walking away. "As for that healer wait until tomorrow," Victor said.
Sorry for not uploading until now I've been busy with school and setting the Christmas decorations, and I wish everyone the best of luck in school and have a happy holiday.
