Harry and the Forgotten Teachers' Diaries
Harry motioned Hermione and Ron to follow him up onto the seventh floor. After the Pensieve incident with Professor Snape and another detention with Professor Umbridge he wanted to have some fun. Motioning his friends to wait, he paced in front of the spot where the door was supposed to appear, thinking, 'I want a place, in which all our teachers would hide their private diaries.'
A door appeared, and the three friends eagerly entered the room. "What did you wish for?" Hermione asked curiously, worriedly eyeing her friend, who wasn't acting himself since he had returned from his Occlumency lesson with Professor Snape that evening.
Harry only smirked and stepped over to the nearest shelf, pulling a few books out off the shelf. He chuckled when he looked at the titles.
'My sixth year by Minerva McGonagall' was the first book and 'Minnie's, Rolanda's and my fifth year by Poppy Pomfrey' the next.
"That's exactly what I wanted," Harry said contentedly, showing the books to his friends, causing them to gasp simultaneously.
"You wished for a room to show us our teachers' diaries?" Hermione asked unbelievingly.
"Exactly," Harry nodded. "Look around and see what other ones are here, and we'll shrink them and take them with us in case we can't get this room to appear for us again."
Together they searched the whole evening and finally returned to Gryffindor with twenty shrunken diaries in their robe pockets, on which Harry had placed a Charm, so that nobody except for the three of them would recognise them for what they truly were.
"All right; let's go into our dormitory and read the first one. We can take turns reading," Harry suggested.
"Um, Harry," Ron hesitantly spoke up. "Do you think we could invite the twins to join us? I'm sure they'd absolutely love these books."
"All right," Harry agreed and motioned for Fred and George to unobtrusively follow them.
Once in the dormitory they divided the books among the five of them, Harry changed the Charms so that the twins would be able to read the diaries as well, and everyone was instructed to select one chapter to read to the others every evening.
"All right; let me begin tonight," Harry said and opened the first book on his small pile.
I know this is extremely short, but this is kind of a prologue to the story.
Thanks to Mushcorn for her brilliant beta-ing!
