I unfortunately do not own the world of Harry Potter.

This is my second fan-fic. Hope you like it! (And if you haven't figured out by now, reviews are appreciated!)

My first (which I am also currently writing) is called The Malfoy's Servant.

Chapter 1:

Breaking Family Traditions

Professor McGonagall called the next name.

"Draco Malfoy." A boy with blond-white hair strode up confidently to the stool, took a seat, and with in seconds of the Sorting Hat touching his head, it yelled

"SLYTHERIN!" Draco smirked as he headed off to the Slytherin table. He then turned his head in attention as Professor McGonagall called the next name on the list.

"Lyra M."A girl with long, black hair with blond-white streaks in it stepped up to the stool. The Sorting Hat was placed on her head, and sat there for a bit of time.

"Hmm. Very interesting. You have a good heart, and are willing to put your friends and family first. But your whole family has been in Slytherin for generations. I think you will do will though in a different house, soo...

"GRYFFINDOR!" The hat yelled. Draco's eyes widened, but the look on Lyra's face was pure happiness. How's that for ruining family traditions? And then the sorting continued.

That night, as Lyra lay in bed, only then did thoughts of worry cross her mind. What would her father think? And her mum? She groaned. Ugg! Oh, well. Hope fully they wouldn't send a Howler, but that was the worst that could happen, right? These were Lyra's thoughts as she drifted to sleep in the Gryffindor first year girls dormitory.

Thanks to all who are reading, and liking it. If you have any suggestions, questions, or comments, please feel free to review/private message me. Also, if you have any ideas at all, or would like to see something happen, let me know, and I'll consider putting them into a chapter. Thanks! ~ Leanora
