Hogwarts Reunion

Disclaimer: This will be the only one that you find while reading my story, so I hope that you enjoy this! I'm sure that everyone here knows that I am not the wonderfully talented J K Rowling, if I was there would be no chance that you would find me here because I would actually be trying to make money off of this!! OK?? I think that everyone understands! Oh, the plot such as it is, is mine, though I am sure that someone has already written it somewhere before, and if you are reading this, then sorry :) I am trying my best to be original though!

Authors Note: Hello to all of you wonderful people reading my FanFic! I hope that you enjoy this little story, I suggest that if you don't like Draco and Hermione stories then this isn't for you! I'm not sure how long this story is going to be and I'm not sure how long it will be before Hermione and Draco fall in love so bear with me! This isn't going to be a traditional romance either, so with that in mind I hope that you enjoy my little story! Well enough of me prattling on, so on with the story.

Hogwarts Reunion

Chapter 1 - How it Started with Hermione

At the far end of a country lane, there was a large house surrounded by lovely flower gardens and beautifully manicured lawns and children's play equipment. The house had a large plaque over the double front door bearing the name 'Granger House'. The house was in fact not just a house it was an orphanage for young witches and wizards who had lost their parents in the war against Voldemort and his Deatheaters. The war had been over for four years and currently there were twelve young children living with Hermione Granger who ran the orphanage. There were many causalities from the war, which had been dubbed the second war by the media, not only did the war leave these young children without families but many young great wizards and witches had lost their lives, they gave up their lives in order for others to have a better life, one free of danger from evil people only interested in power. While Hermione had gained so much by taking in the young children she had also lost someone dear to her, Ron Weasley had been killed by Voldemort while he was trying to protect Harry. Hermione and Ron had been dating since their sixth year at Hogwarts and he had been killed the year after they had graduated from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Though it had happened four years ago Hermione still felt his death deeply and while she was happy with her life looking after her young charges there was an empty space in her heart that Ron had once filled.

Looking at her calendar Hermione realised that it was five years since she had graduated from Hogwarts, though it seemed like much longer. Hermione didn't see many of her old school friends anymore, Harry who was happily married to Ginny Weasley spent as much of their spare time together, they realised the importance of their love after they lost Ron and the two had been inseparable since the end of the war. With them both working for the Ministry of Magic, Harry in the Magical Games and Sports Department and Ginny in the International Magic Co-operation department they were never far from one another. Though they sent many owls back and forth, Hermione and Harry had not gotten together in over six months and because the couple were so busy it didn't seem that they would be able to get together anytime soon. Fred and George still ran Weasleys Wizarding Wheezes and they donated many toys and joke things for the children but Hermione hadn't seen them in over a year.

Hermione did not have many close friends from her Hogwarts days though the army that had stood against Voldemort and his followers shared a special bond, the strangest bond that had been formed during the war had been between Hermione and Draco. Draco joined 'Dumbledore's Army' as they had been nicknamed because of the defense against the dark arts club that had been formed in their fifth year, after being severely beaten by his father for refusing to obtain the dark mark, fighting to stay alive Draco had traveled to Hermione in the flat where she lived after graduating from Hogwarts and she had saved his life. Hermione had begun to train as a medi- wizard and with the skills that she had learnt she was able to save Draco's life and helped to guide him to the light side. In the war Draco had fought with his father, a battle that would result with the death of one Malfoy, Draco prevailed and killed his father though the battle left him with many scars, both visible and invisible. Draco and Hermione had continuously sent letters to one another, back and forth since the end of the war, though neither had seen each other since the death of Voldemort. Draco was working for the ministry now, trying to find ways of making a protecting spell against the fatal Avada Kedava curse. So far they had not had any luck with creating a block for it though they had made some headway in deflecting it.

While Draco and Hermione kept in contact quite frequently, her most frequent correspondent was Neville Longbottom. Neville had been named the Minister of Magic after the death of Fudge. This was probably the most surprising even to occur after the war, though Neville was backed by Professor Dumbledore and no one was going to argue with Dumbledore, after what had happened the last time that they had chosen to ignore what he had to say. Neville wasn't doing to bad a job as Minister, his only problem was a lack of confidence in himself and as a result Hermione was drowning in owls from him, asking advice, Hermione also had a suspicion that he sent as many if not more owls to Professor Dumbledore as well.

The little children that Hermione looked after were each beautiful and unique, and with each of them being a witch or wizard Hermione had her hands full with the youngsters producing magic unintentionally. The children that Hermione were looking after were, Imogen Rose, Jake Hamilton, Tate Raymond, Riley Fraser, Robert Paul, William Luke, Daphne Jane, Lilly Grace, Isobella Indiana, Taylah Jade, Kayla Marie and Travis Joel. Taylah Jade and Kayla Marie were identical twins. They all managed to make mischief with little trouble ands thankfully all of the children got along and there were never many fights, they had each become brothers and sisters and they got along like a family, with Hermione as their mother. If Hermione could have adopted them all she would have but the Ministry would not allow her to adopt unless she were married and Hermione knew that that was not going to happen in the foreseeable future.

Life for Hermione had been running along smoothly as could be expected with twelve children, Hermione mad them all breakfast before giving them lessons in normal muggle studies as well as special classes so that they understood magic better. They were to far out in the country to go to a normal muggle school so Hermione taught them as well as she could, she didn't graduate the top of her class for nothing. Hermione got a special warm feeling inside when she taught the children, she was happy that she was able to pass on her knowledge to children who wanted to learn from her.

Yes, life had been running smoothly for Hermione Granger and she was happy, well as happy as someone with a broken heart can be, but a small tawny coloured owl bearing a letter threw her life into disarray. The letter itself was quite innocent, it was in fact an invitation but it was the events that followed the letter that brought chaos into her otherwise ordered life.

Dear Ms Granger,

You as well as Imogen Rose, Jake Hamilton, Tate Raymond, Riley Fraser, Robert Paul, William Luke, Daphne Jane, Lilly Grace, Isobella Indiana, Taylah Jade, Kayla Marie and Travis Joel are cordially invited to attend the five-year anniversary of your graduation from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The celebrations will be a culmination of events lasting a week, where you will be able to catch up with old friends and make some new ones.

I have discussed with him and the Minister of magic, Mr. Neville Longbottom, has approved your taking your charges from Granger House for a week. As a result there will be no excuses for your nonattendance. The Hogwarts Express will take you to Hogwarts School on Sunday the 26th July, the train will depart at 11:00 am sharp. Please send you acceptance by return owl.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday week.

Warmest Regards,

Professor Albus Dumbledore Headmaster

And

Professor Minerva McGonagall Deputy Headmistress

It was this little letter and it's contents that changed Hermione Grangers life forever, though it seemed innocent enough, and in fact was an innocent letter, the Professors decided that after the war the people that participated should have a little fun and happiness and to forget all the bad things that had happened. Neither could predict the chain of events that followed their little reunion and while not everything was good, there were definitely more great things than negative and Professor Dumbledore was quite proud of the results even if he didn't have a direct hand in all of the happenings.
