It was just over 55 years ago when Inuyasha received a letter informing him of his acceptance into Hogwarts School for witchcraft and wizardry. Naturally he didn't believe at first but upon learning that not only was it from another time but his mother had attended when she was a girl. It was this that then spurred him to accept but he had been puzzled of how he would get to the school if it was in a different time. The local miko had approached his mother and him telling of a passage between this time and that. A month later saw him on the train, a new and exciting experience for the young honyou, and off to Hogwarts. Upon his arrival at the school, he had been sorted into Gryffindor, and had become quick friends with; James Potter, Remus Lupin, Sirius Black, and Peter Pettigrew. Together they formed the Marauders, a group of pranksters.
Later in their years James, Peter, and Sirius had all became animagi to help him and Remus with their small 'disabilities', Remus being a werewolf and he himself being half demon. They soon became the worst thing to ever happen to the school. The pranks they pulled were the best, with Inuyasha's speed and agility, they never got caught. The years past and he watched as James started dating Lily Evans and then got married just out of school. The last time he saw his friend alive was when he and Lily went into hiding at Dumbledore's request.
Inuyasha was pulled out of his thoughts as he sensed Kagome approaching from his left.
"Inuyasha, your ramen's almost ready," She said softly.
"Good for," was Inuyasha's harsh reply as he headed toward the campfire. He didn't know what it was that had stirred up those memories but he had a bad feeling about the next couple of days.
Later that night as they were setting up camp four owls came swooping in. Each one had a letter tied to its leg. One, a silver snowy owl, came over to him and landed on his shoulder.
"Hello Gin" he greeted the owl as he untied the letter on its leg. The others copied him in confusion, wondering who was it that used owls of all things, to deliver mail and why did Inuyasha seem so at ease at their presence.
"What are these, and who writes second sleeping bag on the left on a letter?" Sango asked.
"Magic folk," he replied, "wizards and such from Kagome's time." He replied with a shrug.
"How is it that you know of magic users from Kagome's time. You've only been there a handful of times." Miroku asked. Inuyasha just ignored the monk and took a look at his letter, what surprised him was what it was asking him to do.
We would like to offer you the position of Assistant Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. You would be assisting Mr. R Lupin with his classes due to his 'fury' disposition.
Also due to the recent break out of mass murder, convicted of killing 13 muggles and Mr. P Pettigrew, Sirius Black; Hogwarts will be playing host to the dementors of Azkaban.
McGonagall, Deputy Head Mistress
Albus Dumbledore, Head Master
He stared at the letter a little longer than folded it and staking off to find somewhere to sleep that was close to the rest of the group but not very far away either. The others though stayed up a little longer and talked. "I wonder how Inuyasha knew all that." Kagome asked. "I think there is a little bit about that honyou then meets the eye." Sango answered, with that said they went to bed.
The next morning Inuyasha was up early and has time to ponder the letter. He was worried, not only about the mere presence of the letters but what his had to say. For some reason Sirius had murdered Peter and 13 muggles. This brought a lot of questions to mind like; how come James didn't stop Sirius? What happened to James and Lily's child? Why did Sirius escape Azkaban?
As these thoughts swirled through his head the others slowly began to rise. It was then Inuyasha realised that he would have to decide whether or not he was going to accept the position and whether he could convince the others to come of not. He didn't think that he would be able to just up and leave them to return to the magical world.
He turned to the others as they sleepily sat down around the remains of last night's campfire and discussed the strange letters that they had received the night before.
"The letters are from a School called Hogwarts; it's located in Scotland during Kagome's time. The headmaster of the school is a man called Albus Dumbledore. It is strange however for you to be accepted due to the fact all students start at 11 and graduate at 17, the legal age in the wizarding world." Inuyasha informed them. "It's up to you if you want to go, if you do than just write your reply and the back of the letter, keep the supply list and I'll send it back with Gin there."
The others shared silent looks before nodding and proceeding to write and reply. Inuyasha smiled faintly and took out a piece of parchment and a quill to write his response.
Dear Head Master,
I am pleased to accepted your invitation, and am looking forward to working alongside my old friend Remus.
Finishing he folded the letter and gave it to Gin before waiting for the others to finish theirs. Drawing out his wand, which he had not used in so long he cast a quick translation charm and the letters and the group so that they wouldn't look like complete fools in England.
"There's more than one way to get to Kagome's time than just the well and not all of them come out in Japan. About 4 days hike from here there's a 'gateway' of sorts that leads directly to Gringotts. That's the wizarding world's bank where every British wizard stores their money." Inuyasha explained as they packed up camp and prepared to head out.
I'm sorry my readers for never updating, I don't have much of an excuse other than I just don't know what to write next for most of my stories.
Also I am now in my senior year and have a part time job that claims a fair bit of my time. I will honestly try from now on to update but I apologize in advance of I don't.
