Hello all! This is my second, or first depending on which one you read first, HP fan fic! I've just posted another new story today no five minutes ago so please, if it sucks don't kill me!
Yes, this is another time travel fic, but I promise to make mine different!
I'm usally on the Danny Phantom site here on FF, I have done two HP/DP xovers but other than that this is my first HP fic!
I hope you enjoy this!
Lily and the Marauders were in Professor Slughorn's seventh year potions class. Lily had already finished her potion, The Polyjuice potion. She had been working on it for a month now and finally it was done. The professor couldn't stop going on about her and her potion.
"See class, this is what a perfect potion looks like!" he exclaimed walking over to her. "This even rivals myself! I do hope you consider a profession that requires potion making Miss Evans!" Lily blushed and muttered 'thanks'.
Professor Slughorn finished walking around the rest of the classroom. He also stopped Snape from adding in an ingredient that would cause an explosion the size of, well, the classroom they were in. The Marauders laughed when this happened, and at the look on Snape's face when he was told this.
"That's the funniest thing to happen this year," whispered James to his friends. (Only Sirius and Remus, Peter's grades weren't good enough to be in N.E.W.T potions.)
Slughorn walked over the cauldron that the three boys were making together, it was a month long project and you could have partners if you choose. "Well boys, you should get a move on, this is due tomorrow!" he warned. A moment later the bell rang telling them to go to their next class. Everyone grabbed their bags and walked out the door, James and the rest of the Marauders were doing the same until Slughorn stopped them.
"Just wait a moment, you too Lily," he said. Lily jerked her head up. She had just been stuffing her books in her bag. "Miss Evans I would like you to stay here with these boys, and you boys I want you to try and finish up this potion. I was planning to have a party tomorrow if everyone was finished with their potions, you three are the only ones not done."
"But what about our next class, professor?" asked Remus.
"I'll go and tell you next teachers all about it and get you out of the class, which classes do you have?" he asked.
"We all have McGonagall next," answered James.
Slughorn nodded and turned to Lily, "Now Miss Evans, I want you to stay and keep an eye on them. I know what can happen when you leave these three in an empty classroom. You can help them if you want, just don't do all the work!" he joked.
"But-" said Lily. The last thing she wanted was to stay in a classroom with James Potter. She may have agreed to a date, one date, but she didn't want this at all!
"I'll be back in about thirty minutes to check-up on you all, have fun!" he said walking to the door, he ignored Lily's protests. When he shut the door Lily crossed her arms over he chest and turned back to James, Sirius and Remus.
"What are you three waiting for? Get working!" she barked. The boys quickly moved back to their potion and started adding ingredients.
"So Evans, aren't you happy to be here with us?" asked James looking up to her.
Lily narrowed her eyes and walked over to him, she stopped in front of the cauldron. "Please, it's the last thing I want Potter," she snapped grabbing the open potions book. "Now no talking and get to work."
A few minutes later James spoke up again. "So Evans, what do you want to do for our date? I was think we should go to the Three Broomsticks first," suggested James.
"I told you Potter, if you mentioned it before the Hogsmeade trip I wouldn't go with you." said Lily through clenched teeth. "Now get to work!" Sirius and Remus chuckled at James' fallen face. There was no way he would want to ruin this chance.
They continued in silence for another five minutes, Lily was reading over the potion they were making. She looked up to tell them to add something when she saw Sirius about to add an unwanted ingredient.
"Sirius, no!" she yelled, but it was too late. He had already dropped it in the cauldron and was stirring the light blue potion.
"What is it?" he asked, suddenly the light blue liquid turned into a dark blue, then black. Sirius stopped stirring it. "W-what's happening? Is it suppose to do that?" he asked fearful for the first time Lily had every heard or seen him.
"No, it's not!" she exclaimed, but she almost couldn't be heard over a loud buzzing sound coming from the cauldron. Then there was a huge flash and the potion exploded in a ten feet radius covering Lily, James, Sirius and Remus in the black goop. Then they were pulled forward and into the cauldron screaming all the way.
James groaned and tried to sit up, he found he couldn't. He looked down and saw that Lily was lying on top of him; he blushed and poked her. She groaned as well then she saw the position they were in and quickly stood up, then fell right back down because of dizziness. (This time not on James.)
James sat up and looked around the room, it was very old by the look of it. It also reeked of wet wood and an unidentified smell. Sirius and Remus were laying a few feet away from him and were starting to stir; both sat up and put a hand up to their heads.
"What happened?" asked Remus sleepily. "Where are we?" he added as he looked around the small room.
"Not 'where', but 'when.'" said Lily opening the book that was still in her hands. "After Sirius added that wrong ingredient it was no longer the same potion you were originally making. It became a time travel potion."
"WHAT!" yelled the three boys.
Lily frowned sadly. "Yes, I'm afraid so," she said.
James looked down at his clothes; they no longer had the black goop on them. "What happened to the goop?" he asked.
Lily looked down at the potion book, "It says here that the goop disappears when you arrive at the desired time," she answered.
"But we never picked a time, so where - when - are we?" asked Remus.
Lily shrugged. "I don't know, it probably just dropped us in a random time and place," she said looking around. "Because this really doesn't look like Hogwarts."
Sirius stood up. He stumbled then regained his balance. "Wait a second," muttered Sirius, and then he gasped. "This is my house! Number twelve, Grimmauld Place!" he exclaimed.
Lily stood up as well. "That does make sense, you were the one that added the ingredient," she said. "It probably keyed into you mind to find a place to send us. The only thing we have to find out is when it sent us. Past or future and how far either way."
James and Remus stood up and started exploring the room. They both stopped at a cauldron full of a brown potion. "What's this?" asked James.
Lily walked over to them and looked at the potion, after a moment she said, "I don't know, I've never seen or heard of this potion before." she sniffed it. "But it sure is the reason why this room stinks."
The four continued to look around the room. "Hey look, a Pensive," said Remus, the others walked over to him and looked at the bowl like container that was full of a silver liquid swimming around.
"I've read about these, it holds memories," said Lily.
"I think we should go in, we can see who's room this is - maybe even what year it is." suggested James pulling out his wand.
"No! That's a invasion of privacy!" exclaimed Lily. "We can just as easily go down stairs and see what year it is."
Sirius, James and Remus laughed. "What's so funny?" asked Lily getting annoyed.
"Well, if this is the past and my mother lives here we are not going to get much help from her," answered Sirius. "If this is the future and my mother is here we aren't going to get any help from her. For one she hates me, ever since I ran away. And she'd hate you and Remus, doesn't like muggle-borns, half-bloods or half-breeds."
Lily crossed her arms across her chest. "I think we should still try," she said again.
"And I think we shouldn't," said James smiling. "So in you go!" he pushed Lily into the Pensive then him, Sirius and Remus jumped in.
They landed right in the middle of the Gryffindor common room. Sitting in front of them were James, Sirius, Remus and Peter.
"I can't believe we are leaving Hogwarts for good tomorrow!" said Remus.
"It's sad really, Hogwarts was more of a home to me than my own," said Sirius. "And all the fun times we've had." They all nodded in agreement.
James stood up and started walking toward the portrait hole. "I have to go-"
"Say goodbye to you girlfriend," cut off Sirius, Remus and Peter in unison.
James rolled his eyes. "Am I really that predictable?" he asked.
"You are when you're around her," answered Remus, "But really, go say a long and wet farewell to the girl of your dreams."
James sighed and walked out of the common room.
The memory started to fade into another one.
"Wow! I wonder who the lucky girl is," said Sirius punching James in the arm.
"Don't know, but it sounds really serious," said James.
"What?" asked Sirius.
"Not you!" exclaimed James.
"Shh! Another memory is starting," said Lily.
An older man opened a door and peeked his head inside. "How you doing James?" he asked.
The attention was then directed to a tall man with messy black hair and glasses. "The most nervous I've ever been, Moony," he answered.
"So this is either mine or Moony's Pensive!" exclaimed James, but the others told him to be quiet.
"Well I hear you're like that on your wedding day," laughed the older Remus.
"WEDDING DAY!" exclaimed all four time traveling teens.
"I hate you a lot, Moony," said James sitting down on a nearby chair.
Remus laughed again and sat down next to him. "Sorry, but it's true," he said. "Besides, you have nothing to worry about. You are in love with this woman, you two have been going out since the middle of seventh year."
"So this is the same girl you were going out with in the last memory!" said Sirius.
"Wow, that's a long time for you Potter," said Lily, smirking.
"I hope it's you Lily dearest," said James. Lily rolled her eyes and they turned back to the memory.
"Knock, knock," came a voice at the door as it opened. "Can the best man have a word with the groom?" he asked.
"Sure Padfoot, sit down," said James.
"That's me!" exclaimed Sirius, everyone told him to be quiet.
"I must say, the bride looks beautiful!" exclaimed Sirius, James gave him an evil look. "Hey, it might be bad luck for the groom to see the bride, but nothing is said of the best man," he joked.
"He has a point," said Remus.
James sighed and stood up. "I guess we better get going," he said and walked to the door. Sirius started humming a funeral march and Remus hit him in the head, still he was laughing when he did it.
The memories melted again, the four - sorry, three- teens were laughing their heads off.
"It's not funny!" exclaimed James, the only one not laughing. "I'm really nervous that day!"
This time the memory was of Remus and a boy that looked a lot like a young James standing on the bridge at Hogwarts.
"So this must be your memories Moony," said Sirius, Remus nodded.
"You know Harry, you're more like them than you know," said Remus, Harry just stared at the mountains. "You look exactly like your father, and rumor has it that you've inherited his trouble making talent." The boy named Harry laughed at this. "Some say you even give him a run for his money."
Suddenly the memory melted again.
"That sure was short," said Remus.
"But how cool is that!" exclaimed James. "That must be my son, and Moony said he's just like a Marauder!"
"Do I feel sorry for his mother then," said Lily.
The four watched as another memory flooded on the screen.
It was mass chaos. Witches and wizards were firing shoots right and left. In all the mess you could see Harry and some other boy with a nosebleed on the ground, you could see spun-glass ball drop and land on the ground breaking.
Then suddenly Dumbledore ran into the room and effortlessly takes out death eaters right and left.
Only one couple is still battling, unaware of the new arrival. Sirius ducked Bellatrix's jet of red light. He seemed to be laughing at her.
"Sirius, that's you," said James.
"Yeah, I look a lot different from the other memory though," said Sirius.
They saw Sirius' mouth move, but they couldn't hear what he was saying.
Then a second jet of light hit him squarely on the chest. He started to fall backward as the boy named Harry ran to him with his wand out. Then Sirius fell into a veil.
"SIRIUS!" the boy named Harry yelled, "SIRIUS!"
He stopped in front of the veil but Remus grabbed him around this chest.
"There's nothing you can do, Harry," he said.
"Get him, save, him, he's only just gone though!" exclaimed the boy.
"It's too late, Harry," said Remus again.
"We can still reach him-"
Harry struggled in the older Remus' arms.
"There's nothing you can do, Harry . . . nothing. He's gone."
They time travelers stared in shock.
"He hasn't gone!" Harry yelled.
"SIRIUS! SIRIUS!" he screamed.
"He can't come back, Harry," said Remus, "He can't come back, because he's d-"
"HE - IS- NOT-DEAD!" exclaimed Harry. "SIRIUS!"
Lily had tears coming down her face, the boy was so sad. The others had a few tears as well, but they tried to hide it. Sirius was just staring at the memory in shock. Suddenly a man, an older Remus just like in the memories put his hand on Sirius' shoulder.
"It's time to go," he said and pulled them out of the memory.
This is really sad! Sorry if it really brought you down, the next chapter isn't much better with that. But the third chapter, which I'll start writing soon, will probally be lighter!
Like I said, chapter 2 is already done so the faster you review the faster the next chapter gets posted!
Everyone let the force be with you, peace out, ta ta for now(TTFN) and good-bye!
