It was nearly midnight on the night before his 16th birthday, and Harry Potter was still awake. He wasn't sure why he was awake, but he had a bad feeling about it. Harry had been having headaches all day, and getting weird thoughts in his head. He didn't know it, but this was going to turn out to be one of the most interesting birthdays that he has had ever. He was sitting there reading the latest letter from his girlfriend when the clock struck midnight. "Happy Birthday Harry, Yay, you have made it through another year." At that time there was a knock on the front door of the house, and Harry looked out his window to see two people that were dressed in leather uniforms with an X stitched in front of them. The man had on what would look like sunglasses, which made Harry think that he was weird, because he was wearing them at night. The lady looked a bit like his mother from this distance, but he knew that it wasn't.
When no one came down the lady sent a message up to Harry saying, "don't worry Harry, we are friends. Will you please come down and let us in so we can talk to you." Harry thought that this was weird, because he was hearing this in his head. He went downstairs quickly, because he didn't want them to wake up his relatives, and he was also curious about what was going on. When he got down there and opened the door, he saw that the two of them were tall, a few years older than him.
"Hello, may I help you? Do you know that it is midnight?" Harry wasn't sure about these two, and unbeknownst to them, had his wand out and pointed at them. He was remembering his teaching from both Barty Crouch Jr who was imitating Mad Eyed Moody in his 4th year, and Mad Eyed Moody's teachings himself when he was teaching last year of Constant Vigilance.
"You can put your wand away, we won't hurt you. Yes we know what the time is, and our teacher sent us here to England to pick you and a few others up from around here that we have discovered to be having awakening Mutant Powers. Yes that mean that you are a Mutant Harry. We figured that your abilities are Telekinesis, Telepathy, and Shape shifting. My name is Scott Summers, also known as Cyclops and this is my wife Jean Grey-Summers and we are part of the X-Men. I know that you probably never have heard of us, but we are big in America as a team of super heroes. You might have heard of our counterparts here in England, called Excalibur." Cyclops had an easy grin that Harry instantly liked. His wife was a beautiful lady that had hair like his mothers, and Mrs. Weasley, and she also was easily liked.
"Well ok, I think I understand. But I still don't know why you're here. Are you here just to tell me about my powers? If you are, why at midnight? Or are you here to take me to train with you guys? If this is so, what about my schooling and friends here?"
"Very good questions Harry. We are here to take you with us back to the Xavier Institute for the Gifted, or in other words, other mutants. About your schooling here, you will be joining your other Mutants that we are picking up along with Scott, myself, and another couple of friends of ours that you will be meeting shortly at the school. You will be coming back to our school each summer to train and to learn to use your powers. We have to go, we have five more to pick up tonight before we get back to America. Do you have everything ready to be packed quickly?" Jean asked this, she also said that her code name was Phoenix.
"I just need to shoot off some letters, and pack up. Is it ok if I send some letters to friends and my Headmaster telling them about what I'm going to be doing?"
"I'm afraid that you can't send letters to them Harry. Your headmaster already knows that we're here, and your friends, if your talking about your girlfriend and her brother, Ginny and Ron Weasley, and Ron's girlfriend Hermoine Granger, we will be picking them up also. The other two we are picking up are Neville Longbottom and his girlfriend Luna Lovegood. So if you can quickly get packed up, we will be on our way." Scott had a firm but caring tone to his voice. He liked Harry already, and could tell that he was going to be a great leader once he was trained and took care of Voldemort.
Harry quickly packed up, and after leaving a note for his relatives saying that he wasn't going to be coming back here, followed the other two out to there big black plane and took off to another part of London to pick up his friends.

The three of them landed the Blackbird in the back yard of the Burrow, and went to the back door. Harry knocked on the door and it was answered by Ron immediately. It seems that he Ginny, and Hermoine weren't able to sleep either. When Ron let the trio in, Harry introduced his two new friends too the three who were awake. "Ron can you go get your parents up, there is something that we need to talk about right now. It involves Scott and Jean, and the four of us, plus two others from our school." Ron went up to get his parents immediately knowing that for some reason Harry was there, and he had friends that needed to talk to them.
Five minutes later, Molly and Arthur Weasley were downstairs in the kitchen, and Molly offered the guests some tea. They thanked them and started telling them all about what was going on and that they were here to bring the children to America to train there newly acquired powers. They had asked that Molly pick up the school supplies for the six students that were going to be going with them, explaining that Neville Longbottom and Luna Lovegood were also going to be picked up. Molly said that it wouldn't be a problem for her to pick the stuff up and have it ready for them when they got back at the end of August to start school.
As the students went up to pack there stuff, the adults sat talking about the different things that had been going on around the world and with Voldemort. "Will you be training Harry and them to be better able to take him out?" Arthur had asked this, because it was worrying him that this wouldn't be happening.
"Don't worry Arthur, they will be training to take on far worse than your Lord Voldemort, so he shouldn't be a problem for Harry once he is done training with us. Will you please let Ms. Grangers parents know what is going on, because we don't have time to go back over to her house to talk to them?"
"Of course, I'm sure that they will be pleased to know that there little girl will be with her friends, and training in her new found powers. One thing, how did you know that this was happening to the kids?"
"We have a machine called Cerebro, that is used through the mind of Charles Xavier to locate new mutants, and where they are. We use it to pinpoint them and to be able to go and talk to them about joining our school for training." Scott wrote down the address and telephone number of the school where they would be able to get a hold of the students. "If you want to get a hold of them, this is where you can find them. We will be there at about 2 am est which I'm not sure what it is your time, I think it's 6 am your time. It only takes us an hour to get there crossing the Atlantic. We are in New York, and they will be able to visit the local Wizadring communities on the weekends. Don't worry about them, they are in good hands where there going."
Just then they heard the clunk clunk clunk of three sets of trunks and the various cages for the various animals coming down the stairs towards the kitchen. The four teenagers said there good byes to Mr and Mrs. Weasley and Harry was given his birthday gifts from them. They headed out the back door, where the Blackbird was waiting for them. Mr. Weasley was awe struck when he saw the big plane take off without a sound. They waved to the teenagers as they took off towards Lunas house. "Don't worry Molly, we will see them again at the end of the summer. Let's get back to bed, we have a long day ahead of us tomorrow, in that we have to tell the rest of the Weasley's what is happening, and we need to talk to Hermoine's parents letting them know where she has gone." Arthur led his wife back upstairs to bed and they slept all night.
DATE: July 31, 1996

TIME: 12:30 am
SUBJECT: Luna Lovegood
POWERS: Shape Shifter, Empathy
FIRST CONTACT: Scott and Jean Summers, Ronald and Ginny Weasley, Hermoine Granger, and Harry Potter
STATUS: Newly Awakening Powers
What they found when they landed at the Lovegood household was a battle going on. There were death eaters all over, and Luna and her father were battling them off left and right, but you could tell that they were fighting a losing battle. The death eaters looked up surprised when they saw a plane landing just behind them, and four stunners taking out a few, along with the optic blasts, and the telekinetic powers that were stopping them and putting them to sleep. When they were finally able to apparate out of there, the 6 that had come there to talk to the Lovegoods walked up to the stunned pair and Harry introduced them to there new friends. "Luna Mr. Lovegood, this is Scott and Jean Summers, they are from the Xavier Institute for the gifted in America. They are here to talk to you about Luna and the gifts that she has, well that all of us have. We are here to take Luna with us back to America to study and to learn how to use her new powers that if I'm correct, have just started to show. Am I correct Luna?" Harry looked at his friend in the eye, and could tell that they have. Luna was a Empathy, and a Shape Shifter. She was going to be a powerful one at that from what Harry could tell.
"So they are real then. I have been hearing rumors about mutants and what they have been doing around the world. It is a pleasure to meet you Mr and Mrs. Summers, I hope that you take care of my daughter well. Go pack your things Luna, you will be going with them for the rest of the summer." Mr. Lovegood smiled as his daughter skipped up the stairs into the house to get her stuff ready. 10 minutes later she was ready to go, and they were heading off to another part of London to pick up there 6th and final person before they took off to America to start there new lives.
"So who is this last person we are picking up? I hope that it's Neville, I would surely miss him this summer if it wasn't." Luna started crying thinking that it wouldn't be, but when she was told that it was, she started showing off what she had deemed her special gifts that had been given her as part of her witchcraft, but found out that they were her Shape Shifting abilities. She first turned into each of the other five, then into an owl, puppy dog, kitty cat, blast ended skrewt, and finally into a flobberworm before turning back into her self.
Everyone was flabbergasted that someone that supposedly was just coming into her powers, was able to use them so well. Maybe she was also a metamorphagus along with being a mutant. They would have to explore that possibility further within her training. "Next stop, Longbottom Household." Scott said this as he lowered the plane to in front of a stately mansion in lower London. When they stepped out, they were greeted by a elderly gentleman that had a butlers suit on and asked them, "how may I help you ladies and gentlemen?"
"We are here to see Neville Longbottom and his Grandmother about some schooling business. If you would please inform them that we are here, and we need to talk to them immediately for we are needed in America within the next two hours. Thank you for your prompt appliance sir." Jean said this with giving a slight mind push to the butler to get him to see things there way.
"Very well ma'am, if you would please follow me, I will get the lady and gentleman of the house. It will take a few minutes for them to get downstairs, but I think that master Longbottom is already up, it seems that he has been up all night." The butler led them into a spacious study where they found Neville sitting there reading a book, and wondering why he was up so late. The most obvious thing that was wrong was the wings sticking out of his back, and the tail that stuck out his behind. When he saw his friends and there two companions come in, he jumped up and ran to them.
DATE: July 31, 1996
TIME: 1:00 AM
PLACE: London England
SUBJECT: Neville Longbottom
POWERS: Flight, Prehensile Tail, Teleportation
FIRST CONTACT: Scott and Jean Summers, Harry Potter, Ron and Ginny Weasley, Hermoine Granger, and Luna Lovegood.
STATUS: Newly Awakening Mutant Powers
"Hey Neville, I guess we don't need to ask what your powers are. We can tell that you have flight, and a tail, is there anything else that you know of?" Luna asked her boyfriend with a loving look.
"Well not that I know of, but there might be one other thing, but I thought it was just un adulterated apparating. I seem to be able to go anywhere with just a thought. Also this is just no ordinary tail, I have been practicing with it since I found it this morning, watch." Neville took and used his tail to go get a quill off the desk that he was near, and started writing with it.
"Wow Neville, a prehensile tail, that is so cool. My powers are Telepathy, Telekinesis, and Shape Shifting. Ron's are exceptional strength and flight. Ginny's are Empathy and Neural Shock, while Hermoine's are Flight and the power over the Elements. Luna's are quite exceptional also, in that she is a Shape Shifter and a Empathy. This is going to be one interesting summer guys. Why we are here, is to tell you that we have come to take you with us to America to train with your mutant abilities at the Xavier School for the Gifted. We will be coming back at the end of August, for school, and go back there each summer to train some more. When we get done with our schooling, we will be able to go back there full time as X-Men or stay here for our own goals, whatever they may be. Do you think your Grandmother will have any problems with this?"
"No she shouldn't. She has seen what has been happening to me this day, and had a inkling that was what was happening to me. We have discussed this all day, and said that I should go and get all the training I can. We were going to go look around for a proper school for it tomorrow, and I guess that we don't have to now." Neville gave one of his grins, and was happy that he could be with his friends for once, instead of on the sidelines during something that was happening. Mrs. Longbottom came downstairs at that time, hearing what they were talking about, and agreed to let Neville go with them for his training.
"Now be good Neville, and don't be a menace to your trainers." She also thanked Scott and Jean for coming to pick him up, because she didn't really know what she was going to do if they had to find a place for him to go by themselves.
The eight of them left shortly thereafter with a wave and a thank you too Mrs. Longbottom for her friendliness and willingness to let her boy go. As they were crossing the Atlantic, the six teenagers were dead tired finally, and stretched there seats back to sleep for the hour that they were in the air. When they landed in Westchester county, they were amazed at the size of the school that they were going to be attending this summer, and the summers for the next few years. They were even more astounded at what happened as they landed, when they thought they were going to be landing on a Basketball Court, it opened to reveal a large cavern that the jet landed in. When they looked up, they saw that the court went back into being, and they were in a large hanger bay. They followed Scott and Jean into the Mansion proper, at least the lower halves to where they would be staying for the night. They were told that there were two rooms, one for the boys, and one for the girls. These two rooms were for the newly arrived Mutants for when they first arrived at the institute. They would be shown to there regular rooms in the morning after breakfast, and told that they should get some sleep. The six teenagers were fast asleep before there heads hit there pillows.
A/N: Hey all this is my newest fiction, and I hope you like it. It is my first shot at a X-Men/Harry Potter crossover. It also marks the longest chapter I have ever wrote for any story. Woo-Hoo for me. Love you all. —Donald
