Disclaimer: I don't own Naruto or Harry Potter. Nope.
"Why are we even here, anyway?"
Everything was damp, dismal, and grey on the grounds of Hogwarts, except for Sakura's pink hair and Naruto's-well, all of Naruto.
Sakura gave Naruto a dirty look. "We need to protect Potter Harry from some crazy snake man. It's a mission."
"You don't by any chance mean Sasuke?" Naruto grumbled.
"Now, calm down. We've got to make a good impression on Dumbledore-sama." Said Kakashi.
Just then, a sallow, pale, greasy looking person with black robes strode out, presumably to greet Team 7.
"You are the Konoha…er, ninjas, correct?" the person sneered.
"Yes. And you are?" Kakashi said coolly.
Team 7 looked at each other in surprise, except for Sasuke, who showed no emotion whatsoever.
When had Kakashi-sensei learned to speak English that well?
"Professor Severus Snape, head of Slytherin and Potions master." Snape drawled.
"What's Slytherin?" Naruto blurted out.
"Ah, just like our Mr. Potter. Doesn't know a ghost from a ghoul." sneered Snape.
"Ghost? Ghoul?" Naruto asked.
"Baka." Sasuke said.
"Didn't you do the reading?" Sakura demanded.
Kakashi shook his head. "Please let us in, then." He said tiredly.
The five walked through the Grand Doors. When they stopped, they were in a chamber with a bunch of little kids all huddled together and staring at them with big eyes, most of them looking at Sakura.
"Severus," Professor McGonagall said, slightly surprised, "Who are these…people?"
"Potter's bodyguards. They are to be sorted in to the houses, in order to blend in with the students. However, their classes will all be with the Potter boy."
Professor McGonagall simply nodded and motioned for Team 7 to follow the huddled group of children.
"Err… are you the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher?" McGonagall asked Kakashi nervously.
"Yes. Hatake Kakashi is my name." Kakashi answered smoothly.
"Alright, Hatake-" McGonagall started.
"Ano, obaachan, in Japan last names go first." Naruto blurted out for the second time.
"Naruto!" Sakura hissed.
"Excuse me." McGonagall said, embarrassed. "Kakashi, can you go out in front of the school and let Albus introduce yourself to the school?"
Kakashi nodded and walked off quickly.
"Now, as for you three, I will see that you are put in the appropriate houses. Your names are?" McGonagall said, quickly adopting her strict tone.
"OK, Ha- er, Sakura, Sasuke, and Naruto, right?"
"Hai!" Team 7 said in unison.
A confused McGonagall led them through the towering doors into the Great Hall, where Professor Dumbledore was making his annual speech.
Sakura was sorted into Ravenclaw, Naruto into Gryffindor, and Sasuke into Slytherin. There were quiet rumors about them circulating through the houses and soon everyone knew about the three strange foreigners, and that one didn't even know what a ghost was!
Once the three were sorted, they all proceeded to sit at a table.
"Hold on!" a boy with red hair and freckles said, "You're supposed to sit with your houses!"
Naruto sat down. "I guess I sit here." he shrugged.
"Wait," Sakura hesitated, "shouldn't we find Potter-san?"
"You mean Harry Potter?" the boy with red freckles stood up.
"No, Potter Harry." Naruto stood up too.
"Hey Ron, what's up?" a boy with extremely messy dark hair and glasses asked, walking with another Gryffindor- a bushy brown haired girl.
"They want to know where you are." Ron said agitatedly.
"Excuse me, but are you Potter Harry?" Sakura asked politely.
"Er, yes." Harry said, a little freaked out that the foreigners knew who he was. They weren't all that bad, though, especially the girl with pink hair. At least they weren't like Malfoy.
"We're supposed to protect you," Sakura said, "From some crazy evil snake guy."
Ron laughed. "Voldemort?"
"Sure, whatever." Naruto said, picking up a piece of bread from the table.
"Hey, can you make ramen out of thin air, too?" he asked.
"Ramen?" Ron asked.
Hermione jumped in. "Ramen is a popular type of noodles in Japan, known as Nippon."
"O-K... I understood about 1/4 of that." Ron said.
"Gryffindors!" Professor Flitwick exclaimed, "Please-oh, Harry, Ron, Hermione! You are welcoming the foreigners! Would you please go to your individual common rooms, however, to do that?
"Wait, we're not sleeping together?" Naruto asked.
"No, not if you're in different houses." Harry replied.
Sasuke pulled them aside. "This house thing is just a disadvantage. Our movements are limited with this system!" he hissed.
Sakura shrugged. "I guess it'll help us fit in. After all, everyone already knows we're foreigners. Why let them guess we're actually here to protect Potter-san?"
Naruto snickered. "It's already too late for you, Sakura." he said, motioning toward her 'unusual' pink hair.
"Shut up, baka!"
"Naruto, you're responsible for Potter-san. We'll see you tomorrow." Sasuke said.
He started to walk away. Ron then saw that Sasuke was a Slytherin. He was suprised at first that the blond boy and the girl were friends with him, and then looked suspiciously toward Sasuke.
"Oy! Duck-head!" Ron exclaimed angrily, "Why didn't you tell us you're in Slytherin?!"
Sasuke slowly turned. His eyes were red with Sharingan. "I am not a 'duck-head'. And just because I am in your school does not mean I have to report to you. Got it?" he said slowly.
"Got it!" Ron squeaked as Sasuke strode off.
