Yes, out of a strange inspiration, I created this story. Okay my disclaimer is that I don't own any of the Harry Potter stuff except for this plot and the new kid. I also don't own Billy Talent. Enjoy!


It was the beginning of a new year for Harry, Ron and Hermione as they clambered into an empty compartment on the Hogwarts express.

"So what do you think will happen to us this year?" Ron asked grinning.

"Dunno." Harry answered smiling back. They sat in silence until a boy walked into their compartment.

"Can I sit with you?" he asked with a slight northern accent.

"Sure." Harry said. The boy sat down next to Hermione. He had blond hair and blue eyes and was wearing a Slytherin coat.

"Are you in Slytherin? I haven't seen you around before." Hermione asked.

"I'm a transfer student from the Newcastle school of witchcraft and wizardry. I was just put in a random house. I'm only here for one year."

"Oh, we're in our final year, too. A few words of advice, all Slytherins are seriously evil. They wouldn't normally put you in Slytherin, unless someone vouched for you…" Harry said.

"Well, I'm an orphan, so my parents could've come here and were put in Slytherin," The compartment went strangely quiet. Harry looked away, regretting ever saying anything to him.

"My name's David, by the way." The boy said, breaking the silence. The others nodded and kept quiet for the rest of the trip. When the train finally came to a halt, David got out first,

"It was nice meeting you all... err..."

"Ron." Ron said

"Harry" Harry said to him

"Hermione." Hermione said smiling at him. He smiled back and left. Harry gasped in pain.

"My scar was hurting the whole time he was here!" He told his friends.

"Weird." Ron said and Hermione nodded in agreement. They got off the train and went to the great hall. It was so different now that Dumbledore and Snape were gone. They sat down and Hermione spotted David across the room. He waved and she blushed and waved back. Professor McGonagall raised her voice,

"Silence, silence. Now I'll be taking over as headmistress because of our old headmaster's... passing." She went silent and then continued, "Please welcome our first years and a very special transfer student, Mr David Riddle. he comes to us from the highly aclaimed Newcastle School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He says he has prepared and presentation for us, so please make him feel welcome." David stood up and walked over to the middle of the raised platform.

"I swear I've seen him from somewhere..." Hermione heard a girl whisper from Ravenclaw. David took out his wand and muttered something inaudible. Out of nowhere, a drum kit, electric guitar and bass guitar appeared in front of everyone. A microphone appeared too.

"This song is called Devil in a Midnight Mass." he said (go on to youtube and type in Devil in a midnight mass, it'll come up with a song by Billy Talent). The instruments started playing automatically and David was playing the bass guitar and singing. At the end of the song, the instuments disappeared and immense clapping followed. David smiled at his audience and sat down at his table, being slapped on the back many times by different Slytherins. McGonagall called for silence and the food appeared on the tables.

"Enjoy!" She called out.

The next Day

"Hey, Harry!" Harry turned to find David running after him.

"Do you know where I can go to try out for the Slytherin Quidditch team?"

"Um, yeah. I'm captain of the Griffindor team and I'm going there right now." Harry said smiling. He looked down at David's broom. it was the Firebolt 7000.

"Wow! Where did you get that broom from? It hasn't even come out in stores yet!"

"I get lots of money from my music shows. Up in Newcastle, I'm a big star at music and Quidditch." Harry tried his best not to look amazed.

"How come you're not known down in London?"

"My fame and glory hasn't travelled that far yet. I am being considered for the Northern England International Quidditch Team, though." Harry breathed in sharply and opened the door onto the Qudditch Pitch. David walked over to where the Slytherin try-outs were. Crys went out through some of the Slytherins.

"No questions asked, he has to be our new seeker!" the captian said. "Mr Riddle, I am a huge fan of your sporting attributes and we're all hoping back home that you get on the international team! We could use someone like you on our side!" David smiled, a little embarassed,

"Thank you. I would love to be on the team." Harry had heard it all from where he was. Hell, all the other houses had heard it, too. Harry wasn't looking forward to the next season.
