A/N: I had this idea before HBP, so I'm just going to make this my version of Harry's sixth year at Hogwarts. So don't worry, there are no spoilers, and the person that died in HBP is still alive. Enjoy!
Chapter 1: Calling All Titans
Rubeus Hagrid clumsily ran into Albus Dumbledore's chambers. "Headmaster!" he exclaimed, brandishing a large dead pig. "Headmaster, there's somethin' on the grounds! It's been eatin' pigs and chickens and…"
Dumbledore cut him short with a wave of his hand. "I know Rubeus. I have felt something amiss in the Forbidden Forest. I have examined this presence and found it to be a daemon."
"A daemon!" Hagrid yelled. "Why, a daemon hasn't dared come close to Hogwarts since, well…"
"1232," Dumbledore finished for his friend who had only been able to take three of the History of Magic classes that Hogwarts offered. "Yes, I know, Rubeus. It baffles me as well."
"Headmaster," Hagrid started, "you don't think it's because of you-know-who coming back to power?"
"I've no idea, Rubeus, and unfortunately, I know little of daemons. We'll need help for this."
"And right before the new term, too," Hagrid commented, shaking his head. Hagrid then exited Dumbledore's office with the dead pig slung over his shoulder.
"Azarath, Metrion, Zinthos. Azarath, Metrion, Zin…" Raven's meditation was cut short by a knock at her door. Raven, who had been levitating, came to sit upon her bed. Slowly, she made her way over to her door and slid it open.
Robin stood in front of her. "Um, you've got a letter."
"Thanks." Raven took her letter and slid her door shut. Raven returned to her bed and examined the envelope. There was no stamp and no return address. Turning the envelope over, she noticed it was sealed by a glob of red wax with a seal imprinted on it. The seal was odd. It was divided into four sections with an animal in each section. There was a lion, a snake, a bird of some sort, and a badger. In the center of the seal, there was a large letter H. Carefully breaking the seal, Raven opened the envelope. Inside was a letter written on funny yellow parchment. The letter read:
Dear Raven Roth,
I represent Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It is a delightful school for witches and wizards located in glorious Britain. We have currently been troubled by daemons, and I have been informed of you from a mutual friend. It seems you know much of daemons, and we certainly need your expertise. Meet me at the Leaky Cauldron in London at 10 in the morning of the31st of August. I have included a map along with this letter. Do not be alarmed if those around you cannot see the Leaky Cauldron, it is all natural!
Best of wishes,
Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
Raven stared at the letter. August 31stwas tomorrow. Usually Raven would have blown it off as a strange joke, but she was intrigued. Something about there being people like her who could use magic and do spells seemed like a dream come true.
At 9:59 Raven teleported to the Leaky Cauldron and left the map at home. It seemed odd that no one turned and stared as Raven appeared, but she soon reminded herself that this business dealt with witches and wizards; therefore, a girl suddenly appearing may seem like a common occurrence. To Raven, the Leaky Cauldron was a strange place with lots of bedraggled patrons eating mediocre food. An old man with a long white beard and clothed in a bright purple cloak waved to her. She walked toward him. "Raven, I presume?" She nodded and sat in opposite him on the table. The man sitting next to the senior citizen was huge. He seemed out of place, much like a high school student attempting to sit at a table meant for kindergarteners. His large shaggy beard was full of brambles and knots, and his hair was much the same.
The old man spoke again, "I am so glad you could make it, Raven. I see travel was not a problem."
"Why am I here?" Raven asked, slightly annoyed by the chitchat.
"Ah yes, the point to this rendezvous. First thing's first, though! I am Albus Dumbledore, headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Hogwarts is one of the most prestigious schools for young wizards in Britain. We have a bit of a problem, though. It seems a daemon has taken up residence in the forest next to our school."
"But for a bunch of wizards, taking care of a daemon should be a piece of cake. Right?"
"Actually, no. Daemonology is not taught at Hogwarts. For most of the past millennium old and extremely strong spells have kept daemons away from most wizard dwellings. They're not well liked, you see. Unfortunately, ever since Lord Voldemort has come back to power, the spells have all but dissolved."
"Voldemort," Raven said thoughtfully, ignoring the large man's cringes at the name. "I remember him. A mentor of mine from Azarath was often helping to fight him, I believe."
"Yes!" Dumbledore agreed eagerly. "the people of Azarath were great allies to us, and it was through them that I heard of you."
"What exactly do you want me to do?"
"I know nothing of daemons, so I need you to help us rid our forest of the daemon."
"Seems simple enough."
"There are some things you'll have to keep in mind though. You'll have to go under cover as a student, for if parents knew a daemon was on campus, they would not allow their children to attend. Will you still help, Raven?"
"-may come as well."
"Then I guess my answer is yes."
"Splendid!" announced Dumbledore standing and throwing his hands wide. "This is Rubeus Hagrid," he said indicating the large man seated next to him. "He will accompany you to explain the matter to your friends and help you prepare."
"Wait," Raven said as a concerned look crossed her face. "My friends don't have magic."
Dumbledore smiled widely. "There's a bit of magic in us all. We just need to find it and bring it to the surface." With that he left a large gold coin on the table and left the Leaky Cauldron.
"Well," said the large man as he too stood, "I guess we should be on our way."
Raven teleported herself and Hagrid to Titans Tower and left him to explain the complicated matter to her friends.
In her room she opened a tiny portal to a small dimension and started setting her belongings in the dimension. "Better than a trunk," she thought.
When she had finished, she closed the portal and went back to the Titan's living room. Robin immediately bombarded her. "You just signed us up for this without asking! What if we don't want to go! Did you even think about us?" Raven enclosed them in a ball of energy. A pleading look came into her eyes.
"Please," she said. Robin noticed longing in her voice. "For once I'd like to go someplace where I'm not the freak. These people are like me. They can do magic. They're different… like us." Raven stopped there and bowed her head.
"Okay," Robin said. "We'll go."
Raven allowed the energy around them to disperse. Robin turned to the Titans and said, everyone get packed."
"So we're really going to this place?" asked Beast Boy.
"Yes," Robin said and turned to Raven, "we're going."
"Wonderful," exclaimed Hagrid. The floor shook as he stepped forward. "Raven and I will pick up your school supplies while the rest of you pack."
"When does the school begin?" asked Starfire.
"You'll board the Hogwarts Express tomorrow."
"Oh, this is a most joyous occasion! I shall start the packing." Starfire flew through the doorway at an incredible speed.
Raven was about to teleport herself and Hagrid back to the Leaky Cauldron when Hagrid suddenly turned back to the group. "Another thing: you can't bring anything electronic. It won't work around Hogwarts."
"What no Gamestation!" exclaimed Beast Boy throwing himself on the floor.
"Hey," said Cyborg, "I'm electronic."
"Oh, Dumbledore's taken care of that. He also has a way to make you and Beast Boy look normal. You'll probably want to choose normal names, too."
"Wait," said Robin, his eyes narrowing, "are we going under cover."
"Yep," replied Hagrid as if it was obvious.
"Isn't it going to be a little suspicious having five people who just happen to know each other all transfer to Hogwarts," Robin enquired. Raven frowned, she hadn't thought of that.
"Well, Hogwarts gets some transfer students each year, don't it? And you'll just have to pretend like you don't know each other, won't ya?"
"What!" yelled Raven. The light above them exploded.
"Wait, wait, wait," said Hagrid getting stern, "you can't back out on us now."
"He's right, Raven." Robin stepped forward. "We made a commitment. Besides, Starfire will never allow us to cancel; she's too excited."
"Come on, Rae," said Robin putting his hand on her shoulder. "Don't you want to meet others who can do magic?"
Raven nodded. "Okay then! Off to Diagon Alley!"
