Title: Horrible Acts

Rating: M

Summary: Athena Snape watched as her parents were taken to Azkaban because another child hadn't been born. So did her best friends, but what if there was a chance to change the future by visiting the past. They take a visit to a strange shop and meet its strange owner. Now Yuuko, the space-time witch, joins Athena, the most powerful sorcerer in the world, and her friends to find a way to stop such horrible acts. Harry Potter/xxxHolic/Cardcaptor Sakura crossover.

To Celebwen Telcontar: Thanks for the review and I appericate what you said. Of course Yuuko was only telling Dumbledore what would happen, he's dead long before his daughter is even born so it isn't gross for the daughter. Also this is Fudge were talking about. I don't think he cared about age when he forced Dumbledore to get married.


Chapter 3

            We all found ourselves in the Headmaster's office. Well except Yue who was busy trying to figure out why we had to leave and when we would come back. I decided to send him a mental message, a skill that I had just learned.

   "I'll be sorted and then I'll summon you," I mentally told him.

   "Very well, Master," Yue said.

I groaned. I really hated it when he called me 'Master.'

            Janet Lupin was first under the hat and when it touched her head it screamed out 'GRYFFINDOR!" I clapped for her. She had ended up in Gryffindor, just like her parents. Morgana Malfoy surprised even me when she was placed in Gryffindor, Alice Dumbledore was sorted into Gryffindor as well, and when it was my turn I joined them as well in Gryffindor. When the hat was removed from my head I felt pleased but also worried.

            I knew that Harry and Ron hated my father but I hoped that by showing that I wasn't anything like my father that I would be able to make other friends. I needed them or there would be no way that I could save my parents from the fate that Fudge had in-store for everyone.

   "So what happens next?" Alice asked her father.

   "I'll get Professor McGonagall to take you all to Gryffindor tower," he told her. "I can magic the room to be larger."

I was instantly excited and then Professor McGonagall appeared.

            I forgot to mention about how we look. I've got very long black hair and brown eyes, Alice looks very much like her father when he was young, Janet looked very tired, most of the time, with brown eyes and a mostly happy smile, and Morgana looked like her father with long blond hair, cold eyes, and a smirk that, if you didn't know her, you hated her. Now that we were heading to Gryffindor tower I felt more and more excited. My parents were here and that was all that mattered.


            Severus Snape officially hated his life. It had started when that blasted Space-time witch had shown up and had told not only him, but also everyone else in Dumbledore's office, that he was going to spend the rest of his life in Azkaban. He would, of course, blame Hermione Granger but he figured that Fudge was the one that was really responsible. He hated the man!

            Fudge thought it was funny to play with other people's lives. Well hell, he was up to playing around with Fudge's life. Of course the next day would be trying. He pitied anyone that was related to him. Especially with Potter, Weasley, and a world full of fools that hated children because of who their parents were.


   "Come forth," I mentally commanded.

There was a blasted of energy and Yue appeared, in his true form.

   "Master, I'm here to serve you," Yue said, bowing. "What do you wish of me?"

   "I need you to watch certain people," I told him. "Especially the Slytherins. They think their so high and mighty. I know that they'll try and attack me and my friends."

   "As you wish," Yue said and I dismissed him.

   "I think that tomorrow will be interesting," I told myself and went to bed.

            The next morning Professor McGonagall took us to Diagon Alley to get our things for the coming term. I was surprised how well she was able to guide four people from one place to another. When we returned from Diagon Alley she handed us our timetable. Morgan and me had taken lessons before being admitted to Hogwarts. This meant that both Morgan and me were supposed to be in our second year. Alice and Janet were both starting their first year like everyone else.

   "Well it seems that we're late for Herbology," Morgan told me and then looked around. "Do you think you could get us there quicker."

I knew what she was talking about and I nodded, taking out the key.

   "By the power of darkness, the sun, and moon, I command you to show your true form. By the Covenant I, Athena, command you to release."

            There was a flash of light and the key changed into the staff that I had created. I then took out one of my Clow Cards. It was the Fly Card and it would change my staff into a flying broom.

   "Fly," I commanded, slamming my staff against the card.

Instantly the end of the staff sprouted wings. We got on and flew right for the greenhouses.

   "So what do you think is going on with Professor Lupin?" Morgan asked me.

   "I don't know, but isn't Lockhart suppose to be teaching this year?"

   "I would think so," Morgan answered. "But I think nothing is what it seems."

I figured that she was right.

            When we had landed I returned the card back to my book and my staff shrunk back to a key, which I put back under my uniform.

   "So any idea which greenhouse were supposed to be in?" Morgan asked.

   "Well my mum said that she worked out of greenhouse three during her second year so I think that's were we're suppose to be."

   "Any idea what she worked on?"

I shook my head.

            So that meant that I had to use another card. I decided on the Through Card. I also decided to use the Silent Card so that I could peak in without being affected by whatever it was that the students might be working on. When I poked my head in I was suddenly glad that I had used the Silent Card. They were working on Mandrakes and thankfully not even Professor Sprout noticed me. I pulled myself out.

   "So what are they working on?" Morgan asked.

   "Mandrakes," I answered.

   "Oh great that means that none of them will hear us if we knock on the door," Morgan complained.

   "I know but at least we'll know what we missed," I pointed out.

            Ten minutes later the door opened and the Gryffindors and Hufflepuffs came out, covered in dirt. They all looked at us but headed back to the castle. We both entered Professor Sprout's greenhouse.

   "Ha, Miss Snape and Malfoy," Professor Sprout said, putting the earmuffs away. "You missed the lesson."

   "We understand, Professor," Morgan said. "But we went shopping with Professor McGonagall."

   "Very well," said Professor Sprout. "I want an essay on Mandrakes. To be turned in on Thursday."

   "Yes, Professor," we both said at the same time and then hurried back to the castle.

            Due to the fact that we didn't need to clean up we were the first ones outside Transfiguration when the rest of the Gryffindors arrived. They didn't ask our names, which I was glad about, and when Professor McGonagall opened the door to let us enter we all filed in.

   "You two, come to the front," Professor McGonagall said.

Feeling a little nervous we walked up to the front.

   "I would like all my students attention," Professor McGonagall told them. "We have two new students to grace our presence. Miss Athena Snape and Miss Morgan Malfoy. I want all of you to make them feel at home. Miss Snape, hand out the beetles to the class and we'll attempt to see if the class can attempt to change them into buttons."

Several students groaned but I handed them out to each one, getting a dirty look every time.

            The lesson turned out to be very hard, even for Morgan. Morgan stared at her beetle for so long that I feared that she was trying to gain a connection with it. I just whipped out my wand and changed it into a button. Hermione Granger also had no trouble with it much to the annoyance of her friends.

   "Want to give you a hand?" I asked Morgan.

Morgan rolled her eyes.

   "If it will help me understand how to do it," she said.

I grinned at her and then showed her how it was done.

   "How are things so easy with you?" Morgan complained as they left Transfiguration for lunch. "I mean you can just wave your wand and things happen."

I felt for her.

   "I'm not trying to show off but things just come to me."

Morgan snorted and ran off, leaving me behind.

   "What's wrong with you?" Janet asked when I had sat down at the Gryffindor table.

   "Morgan," I answered. "She got mad at me after Transfiguration."

Janet winced, and then asked "But why did she get mad?"

   "Because she was having trouble with the beetle and I asked if I could help."

Janet and Alice shook their heads.

   "I think that you shouldn't have done that," Alice advised.

I turned and looked at her.

   "Why not?" I asked her. "What did I do that was so wrong?"

Alice seemed to think about that for a moment.

   "Hay, Alice, why are you hanging around with Snape?" asked a red hair boy. "She'll give you snake germs."

Several Gryffindors laughed at that.


She turned back to Athena.

   "Jerk," she muttered.

   "I've been getting that a lot," Janet said. "During Defense Against the Dark Arts Ginny Weasley asked me why I even talk to you. Apparently she heard that we had all gone shopping together."

   "And Colin asked me why I'm hanging out with you, Athena," Alice said. "He said that all the students said that no self-respecting Dumbledore would hang out with both Malfoy and Snape. I thought he was talking about your father and Morgan's grandfather, because I said that I don't hang out with adults. He seemed to find that funny."

   "What did you tell him?" I asked.

   "I told him to shove off," Alice answered. "No one tells me who can be my mates or not."

   "To right," Janet said. "So what are you going to do about Morgana?"

I sighed.

   "I don't know," I muttered. "I mean; she has never acted like that."

Janet patted her on the shoulder.

   "Don't worry, just let her have sometime to herself," she advised. "I'm sure that everything will be fine in no time."

   "Thanks," I said and went back to my lunch.
