Summery: What would happen if Harry Potter went
back in time? Not to be a student but to teach? This story is going to be about Harry, at 19, going
back in time to his parents 7th year and teaching Defense Against
the Dark Arts (DADA). What
secrets would be found out? Find out all this and more.
A/N: Ok this was an idea
that popped in my head last night. If it totally sucks blame it on my cold or
whatever it is I am sick with. I am begging you now to review. I don't care if
it is a flame or whatnot; I just want to know what you think. Thank you and now
on to my lovely (can you sense the sarcasm?) story that is in the point of view
of Harry for a little while…
By—Are They Really Gone?
Chapter 1: Information
Followed by Heavy Precipitation
don't know why Dumbledore called me to meet him today except it has something
to do with teaching. I think I will turn whatever it is down. Nineteen is too
young to teach, at least I think so, but I might be wrong. Plus I have had too
many experiences with the dark arts; I don't want to teach people about it. Not
now, not after I just defeated Voldemort. It amazes me that people still can't
say his name, even after he is gone. Oh the way to his office never changes.
I just passed a mirror. It still amazes
me that I am not that black haired, midget with glasses any more. I still have
black hair except it is cut short, real short, to make it look spiky. I don't
even have to put gel in it to make it look that way. As for how will I hide my
scar, I found a spell that can conceal certain, what's the word? —Ah yes,
facial disfigurations. Hence the use it on my scar and now people wonder who I
am. It certainly cuts down on publicity. I usually wear contacts (bless muggle
technology) now, but I have a pair of rimless, oval glasses that I wear at my
flat in London.
But I have defiantly changed on the
midget part. (Thank goodness) I am now only a few inches shorter then Ron, and
you know how tall he is. They tell me that I am the same height as my dad, and
that I look identical to him except for my eyes. I wish I could tell if that
were true. The weirdest thing is that girls are staring at me. It is getting
freaky. I am single right now and I plan to stay that way for a little bit
longer, but the girls don't seem to realize that. But being single isn't the
case for Ron. Ron and Hermione are getting married when they turn 21. With the
fights they have had about the wedding, I am wondering if they will just get
Harry reached the stone gargoyle and
realized that Dumbledore had not given him the password.
"Damn," he said hitting himself on the
head, "Er--Chocolate Frogs. Licorice Wand. You know, I am beginning to think
you don't like me. Er—Sugar Quill! Fizzing Whizbee!"
"Finally," he muttered.
Dumbledore was waiting for him with a
twinkle in his eye and a smile on his lips. "Hello Harry. How are you doing
this fine morning?"
"Hello Professor. Did you know that you
forgot to give me the password? Other than that I am fine. You?"
"I did?" He asked pretending to look
shocked, "Oh dear, I am sorry. I hope I will make it up to you with my news.
And Harry please call me Albus. It is my name."
Harry grinned and then looked at
Dumbledore closely. One might say that Harry had the same type of piercing gaze
as Dumbledore, which is why he doesn't feel uncomfortable with him. "Alright
then, Albus it is. Now what is that news? You have even got me wondering."
Dumbledore's face took on a serious edge
when he started talking, but he still had that twinkle in his eye. "Harry I
find you more than capable to teach Defense Against the Dark Arts, but alas, we
already have a teacher for it." Harry looked confused and was about to say
something when Dumbledore raised his hand, "Please let me continue. As I was
saying we already have a teacher for it now, but not in the year 1978--the year
that your mother and father were in their seventh year. Now I have been
thinking about this for a long time. What if you went back and taught the
class? There wouldn't be any publicity on your part and you could get to know
Harry was shocked. That wasn't the type
of job he had thought of when he said he would refuse. He looked at Dumbledore with a grin and said,
"When can I start?"
"We need to send you back as soon as
possible. Pretty much everyone including your friends will think you went into
hiding from the remaining Death Eaters. You will need to bring everything you
need with you. You will go tonight, if that is okay with you?" He paused for a
moment to let Harry answer.
"That is fine sir. But how am I going to
get there and back? Also what would I teach them?" Harry asked once he had
realized that it was happening that night.
"I am glad you asked that Harry. You will
be going by a special time turner called Point History. It enables you to a
certain point in this school's history. As for what you are going to teach why
don't you teach what you know? That is all I have to say for right now. Do you
have any questions before you go to get ready?"
Harry thought a minute, " Sir, if I look
like my dad how am I going to go back without people questioning me about why I
look like him? And what will I be called? I don't reckon that I can go back and
say, 'Hi. I am Lily Evan's and James Potter's son Harry Potter from 21 years in
the future and I would like to teach Defense Against the Dark Arts'."
"Those are good questions, Harry. I
don't have answers for all of those questions, but I have do have answers for
some. You will be called Harry Larson, you are 19 years old, and you went to
school in Ireland. Your parents are dead, and you don't have any pictures of
them nor do you know their names.
Voldemort burned down your school the year before and you lost your
records. Okay?" Harry nodded.
"That reminds me. You are not to change
history. You cannot tell them your real name or where you are from. Not even
who you are. Do you understand? This is
really important. You are not to change history. You need to promise me
that you will not slip up," Dumbledore said looking so serious and sad that
Harry couldn't say no.
"I understand and I promise you that I
will not change history. And If I do it was not on purpose. May I leave to pack
"Yes you may Harry. Thank you for
promising," and with that said Harry left.
Once Harry was outside the Hogwart's
gates he apparated to his flat. He shook himself off because it had been
raining so hard. He packed everything he thought he needed into his truck plus
the invisibility cloak and the Marauder's Map ("never know what I might run
into") and brought Hedwig, his owl. He didn't want to say goodbye to his
friends, but he didn't want them to worry. So he left a note saying that he was
going into hiding for a year and not to worry about him. He went to get some of
his money from the bank. It was now time to go.
"Last time here in this time for a while,"
Harry said to Hedwig, "Let's hope we have a good year."
They then apparated to the Hogwart's
gates, and with a glare at the stone gargoyle, they walked into Dumbledore's
office. No one was there so he sat down and Fawkes sat down on his lap.
"Hello Fawkes. I am worried about this,
what if I mess up and tell them something or I am a terrible teacher?" Harry
said with a sigh.
He hadn't noticed that Dumbledore had
walked in until he said, "Harry you will be a wonderful teacher. You have
enough knowledge in your head that it will become useless unless you teach it.
And you need to teach it. Ready to go?"
"Yes. Is there anything I need to know
before I go?" said Harry reassure by what Dumbledore had said.
"I had almost forgotten. This will deposit you by the lake, so be
careful. Remember to have fun and get to know your students," He said smiling.
"Now take the Point History and turn it 21
times toward you to go back in time. In order to go forward in time turn it
away from you 21 times. Do not lose it. It is the only one in existence.
Remember don't change history and have fun!" and with that said Harry
disappeared. And at the same time Harry disappeared a lightning bolt struck
outside Dumbledore's window.
boy! That was short. Please review and remember that I own nothing except what
is not in the books. The next part will be out shortly and will hopefully be
longer. Please review!
