AN - This is the sequel to Scribblings of a Red Head and a Quidditch Captain. If you haven't already read it, it's probably a good idea so that you get to know the OCs and also the backstory.
Sorry it's been such a long wait - ENJOY :D
Harry sat in the cellar of his parent's desecrated home in Godric's Hollow, ready to start reading about the next chapter in his parents' lives. It had been sheer luck that he had found all their diaries in the first place - he could hardly believe that all their stuff was still there, given the publicity that their deaths had received and the preservation works that had obviously gone into the house.
He was incredibly grateful for the opportunity to hear about what happened while they had been at Hogwarts, even though some of it had been quite confronting - like the personalised letters from Voldemort. However, he wasn't sure if he was ready to read about what happened next. After all, he already knew how the story would end - with a traitor, a godfather in jail and dead parents. It was a sort of morbid fascination that urged him on. He had to know what had happened in the years and weeks and days leading up to the day that had changed the course of history for the wizarding world forever.
Harry was just thankful that his friends were there to give him support. Ginny's presence was particularly important to him, more so now that he'd learned about how devoted his parents had been (by all accounts) to one another.
He had probably learnt just as much about Sirius and Remus as he had about Lily and James through their written records and photos. He would never have guessed that Remus had had such trouble with girls or that Sirius, the seemingly nonchalant, perpetual bachelor-turned-hideaway, had come inches from marrying his high school sweetheart. With feelings of slight trepidation as to what he would read next, Harry selected the first piece of paper from the pile - it was another excerpt from his mother's diary. He took a steadying breath then began to read.
AN - Okay, so this prologue isn't much and doesn't explain much about the characters in the story. There won't be much going over what happened in Scribblings1 in the next chapter because I sort of just want to get on with what's happening to the characters now. So if you haven't read Scribblings1 it would probably help to go and do that now so that you get a better idea of the characters and what's already happened to them.
If you are a faithful follow-on-erer, then thank you for caring enough about the characters and my plot to read this hopefully just-as-good-as-the-original sequel! I hope you won't be disappointed.
A challenge - this story needs a name. At the moment it is posted as Scribblings: Part 2 because I can't think of anything better. Suggestions??
As always, thank you so much for reading, please review and HAPPY FANFICCING!
