I woke up to a bucket of ice water poured on me.
"Where am I?" I said while recognizing that this was not how my bed felt.
Then the memories came flooding back.
I was in the Common room as I was looking at a device. I had taken it last year from a when a Dementor when Harry and Hermione had time traveled.
"Come on!" an exasperated Ron said, "You ARE going to have to try it out sooner or later."
"It could be dangerous, and Harry could get hurt. How many times do I have to tell you?!" Hermione replied.
"We have done many tests on it, and it showed no dark magic except for one ingredient used in time travel ONLY was in it. And this doesn't even look like a time travel machine." Ron said in one go, clearly nervous because Hermione looked angry.
Then she sighed and said, "Alright, but only if Harry says 1976 whenever he touches it."
"Why do I have to say 1976?" I asked, a little confused.
"Honestly! For head Aurour you are dumb." Hermione said, "If it has time-traveling ingredients in it, there is a chance that you could be transported back in time."
"I know that," I stated.
"1976 was your father's 6th year. By then, he would have become an Animagus, and I know you have always wanted to meet your parents. Plus, you are in your 7th year of Hogwarts, so the 6th year should be easy for you." Hermione said softly.
"Good Luck," Ron said. Hermione said the same.
"Should I wait?" I wondered.
"You have been on this all night. Get it over with," Hermione said
I got ready, said, "Thanks," and removed my gloves, touched them while saying "1976."
(end of flashback)
I woke up from the flashback with a new cold shiver and then realized it was another bucket of ice water. No, not bucket, I realized, spell. It was Aguamenti. Sirius had used it this summer when at his place during the Order of the Phoenix to wake us.
"Sirius?" I mumbled, stunned that he was alive and talking to me. My eyes were closed, still half sleepy, while my mind was in deep thought, realizing that it was a time turner, and I was in 1976, my dad's time. I put my hand up to the place where my scar should be to make sure that I was Harry. It wasn't. It was James Potter.
Then I heard a voice say, "Yes, James. Wake up! Aguamenti!"
That confirmed it. I am James, and that is Sirius. It is 1976, and that is a time turner. I realized that if I did not get up soon, Sirius would have no problem casting another aguamenti. I was too stunned to get up. That gave me another Aguamenti. But I also heard another voice say, "And this is Moony." I stunned beyond what was humanly possible. Hey! It wasn't my fault! If you were in my situation or anywhere similar, you would understand. If you haven't, then it's not your place to judge me.
I heard from off, "James! Get up! Aguamenti!"
Finally, I got up and yawned. I reached out for my glasses and put them on.
"James! That took five Aguamenti and half an hour!" Sirius yelled.
"Padfoot or Moony?" I asked. I was slightly confused but awake enough to pretend to be James and use the nicknames. That was probably because of the 5 Aguamenti.
"It's me, Sirius," Padfoot said.
I got up and wore my slippers only to find custard all over me, blue skin, and a laughing Sirius. There was also some laughing from Moony in the bathroom.
"Wormtail gets up unless you want an Aguamenti as well!" Sirius shouted.
He was up as fast as lightning, and we all had a new fresh batch of laughter.
I was mad at the traitor but realized he didn't do anything yet. He might change. Oh, and I would also get in trouble. I was least worried about getting in trouble, but the other reasons stopped me from harming him.
"Did you warn me about aguamenti?" I asked Padfoot
"Now, now prongs. If we were playing a prank on you, why would we warn you? And anyway, you were sound asleep and wouldn't have heard me anyway." Sirius replied as the blue skin slowly began to wear off.
"Scourify," I said while performing the spell, cleaning myself from the custard.
"Hey! We didn't even take a picture yet!" Sirius complained.
"Then take it while I still have slightly blue skin," I replied.
"I already took it. Sorry Prongs." Moony said while not sounding sorry at all.
Just then, an owl was trying to get in. I knew it to be Dumbledore's Owl.
"What's Dumbledore's owl doing here?" Peter asked.
I opened it and saw that it was tiny. The owl didn't expect a reply, so it left. I read the letter out loud:
You are all to report to my office at once.
P.S. Chocolate frogs taste amazing
"Well, we should go then. Not sure why Dumbledore called us. We haven't played any pranks recently. Have you done one without us prongs?" Moony said.
"No! But, he only called me. I don't want you to get in trouble too!" I said while thinking that it was in bold as he knew who I was.
"No, not unless you count yesterday morning's prank on the Slytherins, and btw, do you honestly think we are going to let you go alone?" Sirius agreed.
"We're friends and the marauders, and you know you can tell me, I won't tell you off," Moony said
"I didn't pull any prank, honest!" I replied.
"Look, we're coming whether you like it or not, understand?"
"We should go then, come on," I said, leading the way.
We walked up to the office, and Sirius said, "Chocolate frogs."
Moony knocked three times, and the door opened.
"Come in," replied Dumbledore.
We all filed in as I put the letter on the table and said, "You called us, sir?"
"Yes, have a seat," said Professor Dumbledore as he conjured up more seats to fit all of us.
"I would have talked with only you, Harry, but Sirius, Remus, and Wormtail would find out eventually. They are closer than brothers." Dumbledore said.
"This is James, not Harry, sir." Moony corrected.
"No, I am Harry," I said, and then, "Professor, how do you know? Tell me about what happened there, please?"
"As you remember, you were awake when you came, so when James arrived, because you were in his body, and yours was the only option left, he was awake. Hermione persuaded him to tell me, and a few minutes ago, they agreed. They had to persuade him for almost half an hour as he wanted to spend more time as his son. Hermionie and Ron filled him in about being Harry. My future-self informed me about the situation. You will be filled in about being James by Sirius, Moony, and Wormtail and will act like him. No buts. You may leave now." Dumbledore replied.
They all made their way to the Gryffindor Common room in dee thought.
