A/N: Well, here's my entry for the DBZAHQ April-May contest. The challenge was to write a Dragonball Z crossover fic and I decided to write a Harry Potter/Dragonball Z fic, since I love both series so much. I really hope you enjoy it and I know I'm going to have fun writing it.
Disclaimer: I do not own Dragonball Z or Harry Potter.
I admit, a lot of strange things have happened to me in my life. I found out my Dad's an alien, I lived in the wilderness by myself for almost a year, I've met evil overlords of the universe on exploding planets, and even helped saved the world a few times. Mind you, most of that all happened when I was younger than ten.
I got used to it after a while, I suppose. It's all just part of being a Son: you have to expect the unexpected; otherwise you're screwed, as quoted from my little brother. But I truly wasn't expecting the next level of strange in my life and for once it was a good kind of strange.
In the summer following the Cell Games, a visitor appeared at my house and gave me a letter. An acceptance letter, as I found out soon after, to become a student at special school in Europe. No, it wasn't the highly prestigious boarding school that my Mom always wanted me to go to. In fact, she had never heard of this school until that visitor appeared.
Of course, I accepted his invitation eagerly, and my Mom (while finding it somewhat difficult to part with me) let me go to that school for seven years. And promptly after my schooling there was done, she sent me back to an ordinary school in Satan City, but that's another story I'm sure you all know.
Anyway, my years at that school were probably some of the best years of my life. I was around kids with even weirder families than mine, I had loads of adventures within its walls (some including running away from rabid fan clubs), I learned loads of information that had previously been unknown to me (a surprise, considering my mother's study laws), and I met my best friend who was my own age for once.
At Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, I learned a lot more about myself than any other years of my life. Besides learning that I was an actual wizard and could do magic, I found out what a true friend was; that there were people in the world who's lives are as rough as mine; that evil exists everywhere, not just in Japan; and that people who really care about you, it doesn't matter who you are, where you come from, and even if you're half-alien or not.
I had the time of my life at Hogwarts and I reflect on it now, more than ever. It may have something to do with the facts that Trunks and Goten started Hogwarts a few years back (Professor McGonagall recently owled my mother to tell her the news that both boys now have an entire two drawers to themselves in Filch's filing cabinet) and now that my own daughter has begun to show signs of magic. She's only two for goodness' sake!
Like I said in the beginning, many strange things have occurred during the course of my life: I met my wife during a bank robbery, my sensei is a seven foot tall green alien, I rode a cloud to school rather than drive a car, and I attended a school of magic for seven years of my life. Some, like those I listed now, are the ones I'd rather share with others than all the battles I've been in.
It's just your luck that my Hogwarts experiences are the first ones I want to share.
Oh…um…about all those strange things I mentioned before hand? They never happened and just to make sure you forget…
