Disclaimer: I sadly do not own anything Harry Potter, -sigh-. J.K. Rowling owns it all.
Hi everyone! This is the first story that I've posted , so bare with me. I will tell you that I'm bad at updating but I will do my best, especially since I'm about to start my first year at college. Class of 2010!
Harry Potter/Teen Titans Crossover
The Titans were reclining in the common room watching Wicked Scary 8, the occasional screams echoing off of the walls of the "T" Tower. Robin and Starfire were cuddling on the left side, Cyborg beside Starfire with his feet placed on the table, Beastboy was leaning forward, squinting his eyes at the intense scene upon him, and at the other end sat Raven staring blankly at a girl getting her head ripped off, one eyebrow raised above her hair. A little after half of the movie, they were all gaping at the extremely disturbing terrors taking place when they heard a sudden tapping noise against their window, and screamed.
"AHHHH!" Beastboy screamed, running around everywhere, "it's coming to get us!" Suddenly he ran and jumped into Raven's arms, until she threw him down on the floor.
"If it were coming to get us, I don't think that it would waste its time tapping on the window." Raven grouched.
"Maybe that's how its mind works. First, he taps on your window. Then, you let him come in. You ask if he would like a drink. He says 'yes'. Next, we ask what he is here for. Finally, he will say 'I'M HERE TO EAT YOU!' He sticks his long, sharp tongue out, smelling his prey, and will eat you up in one gulp!" Beastboy exclaimed, Cyborg just shook his head.
"Someone's had WAY too much candy tonight." Raven mumbled.
"I wish that the tapping on the window would stop now, please!" Starfire anxiously shouted, wrapped in Robin's comforting arms.
"I'll go check," Raven finally answered, glaring at Beastboy on her way, to see a small owl patiently waiting outside. As soon as she opened the window, the owl immediately flew in, a letter tied to its leg.
Confused, Raven stared at the panting owl as it held its tiny leg out towards her. It was then she realized that the letter was addressed to her. Carefully picking up the letter, she studied the texture, wondering why such a random, old letter would be sent to her.
"Raven," She turned around, seeing Robin in the doorway.
"It's a letter...addressed to me." Raven stated carefully, not really sure if she should be telling him this.
"I don't know yet, if there is anything wrong I will let you know." With that she went to her room, leaving Robin completely befuddled.
I finally reached the quiet, sanctuary of my bedroom, huddling myself up against the bed post, and just staring at the letter.
'Where did this letter come from? It's definitely not from Azarath. But who else would want to send a letter to me? The Titans have communicators.' I test the texture carefully, 'Hmm, parchment. This must be from older times, definitely. Hmmm, well, I won't understand until open it.' Slowly, I made a tear in the fold and let the letter slip through, though I also noticed a second letter that fell to the floor.
Opening the first one, I read:
'HOGWARTS SCHOOL of WITCHCRAFT
Headmaster: Albus Dumbledore
(Order of Merlin, First Class, Grand Sorc., Chf. Warlock, Supreme Mugwump, International Confed. of Wizards)
Dear Miss Roth,
We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry." Please find enclosed a list of all necessary books and equipment.
Term begins on September 1. We await your owl by no later than July 31.
"What?" 'I still don't understand. An actual school here.' I looked over to the fallen letter, and found that it was the list mentioned beforehand. I read over the materials and books I need to buy. Then I looked down once more to find that I dropped third letter, a third that read:
'Dear Miss Roth,
I would also like to reassure you that it would be fine to bring along your friends to join our school as well. I didn't want to make you feel uncomfortable about leaving your friends behind at such short notice. Please answer this question when you send your owl for school acceptance.
I placed both letters on the desk beside me, and laid back, eyes closed thinking about what a great feeling it would be to go to a school full of people just like you. At least almost completely like me. At the last thought, I felt myself slowly drifting into a light sleep.
Normal POV-The Order
Albus Dumbledore waited in Number 12, Grimmauld Place as the Order of the Phoenix members quickly gathered around the crowded kitchen. He had some important decisions to make tonight, some that may change the fate of the entire world.
"Greetings, everyone! I have some crucially important matters to discuss with you this evening!" Dumbledore paused, letting the rest on the crowd quiet down before continuing, "it seems as if the threat of Lord Voldemort has alarmingly increased within a short time span since our last meet. I realize that Voldemort has recruited an extremely dark and extremely dangerous ally. One, I'm afraid, that may be stronger than Voldemort himself."
Everyone looked horrified at the frightening thought of a creature more powerful than You-Know-Who. Finally, Tonks struck up the courage enough to ask who this ally was.
"This ally is the reincarnation of evil, a full blown demon. He is after someone, who lives in Jump City, California, far west in the United States."
"And who is this ally of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named?" Professor McGonagall asked quietly, still looking faint.
"His name…is Trigon the Terrible from what I've heard; I can expect Trigon to become more powerful than Voldemort ever was." Dumbledore hung his head down and sighed.
"What!" Nearly everyone yelled; nobody was able to believe that there was somebody more dangerous than Voldemort. Honestly, how are they supposed to defeat somebody stronger than Voldemort, when they can barely defeat Voldemort himself?
"I'm afraid that the person that Trigon and Voldemort are looking together for is a 16 year old girl, who may be of an immense help to us, if we can manage to reach her. We could provide as much protection as we could possibly give to her. She would most likely want to bring her friends. One is an alien from a planet called Tamaran, one can change into animals, one is a cyborg, and one is a muggle with great skill in martial arts.
"Wait," called one of the older Order members from the back, "you are going to allow a muggle to come to Hogwarts?"
"Yes, yes I am. It wouldn't be a bad thing because he already knows about magic, and is smart enough to know not to go blabbing things that aren't meant to be said. Besides, I doubt he would want her to go to an unknown place all by herself, the friends are quite protective of each other."
And with that, Dumbledore covered some minor details and the meeting was adjured.
On the other hand, a boy with raven hair was trying to complete his summer homework, but annoyingly kept interrupted by his extremely paranoid guardians.
"Boy!" bellowed Uncle Vernon. Harry got up slowly from the floor, where he believes is the most relaxing place to work on his homework, and took his time leaving the room.
As soon as he reached the living room, he immediately caught the piercing glare of his uncle, a beefy man, who was angrily waddling over to the raven haired boy.
"Boy, fix dinner now! Dudley, Petunia, and I will be going to a short convention at Dudley's school. It is 4:30P.M., we will be back by seven thirty, and that is when I will expect dinner to be ready and on the table when we arrive! Duddy, 'Tunia, let's leave now."
Slowly, he made his way out of the door, staring left to right as he, Petunia and Dudley snuck to the van, as to not disturb the neighbors. Hearing the car engine start, Harry fell asleep on his cramped bed.
In his dream…
'I moaned as I opened my eyes to find myself in a dark place with only a rock path down the middle. This place really freaked me out, but for some strange reason I felt like I was supposed to be here. So, gaining the courage I needed, I cautiously made my way down the wide, rocky path, stopping in front of a rocky archway on which four birds rested.
"Hello stranger," one of the black birds spoke, "why do you come?"
"I dunno, really," I nervously mumbled, "I just sort of landed here actually."
"Oh, ok, well, you can just wait here a second and I will fetch someone for you. I can say that here is the safest spot to wait," the little bird answered calmly.
I sat down on the rock as I waited, and waited, and just as I was about to go in after the bird, it came out with a girl that looked about his age wearing a pink leotard and cloak bouncing along behind it. She looked a bit too excited, she had pale gray skin, and she seems a bit dark, but she also has this weird beauty about her that makes my stomach do weird flips and twist in tight circles. She came up to me with this mysteriously bright smile, once again making my stomach do weird flips and twist in tight circles, and said at almost a yell, "Hello!," almost knocking me over.
"Uhh, hi. I don't suppose you could tell me where I am?" I asked nervously, not exactly sure if she was an enemy. She sure didn't look it. 'And I sure wouldn't be asking her for help if she was."
"Oh, you're in Nevermore." Happy rocked back and forth on her feet, smiling an I-know-something-you-don't smile.
"Nevermore?" I was staring straight into her big, purple eyes to make sure she wasn't lying, but I could only spot truth in them.
"I can't explain it now, but don't worry, you'll know more about it soon. Right now, you need to WAKE UP!"
He jolted awake, panting with light beads of sweat on his forehead. Never in his life has he had a dream as strange, yet slightly fulfilling, as that one.
He turned to look out of the window and notice that there is an owl, not Hedwig mind you, coming straight towards his window. Hequickly opened it, and the owl bolted inside, sticking out its leg importantly. Harry immediately noticed the thin, squiggly handwriting known to be Dumbledore's as he rushed to open the letter as he thought 'Hmm, I wonder if he's going to come take me over to the Burrow.'
I am sure that you are wondering whether I am owling you for the purpose of getting you to the Burrow, but before I answer that question, I must discuss a more important matter with you at the present time. I need for you to be aware that Voldemort has gained an ally, a very dangerous ally. This puts not only you, but also a young girl your age in much more danger than anyone else. Her name is Raven Roth, and she is going to be in your year at Hogwarts. Voldemort targets her now as well because she has a connection to his ally and they together believe that they can use her just as much as you to gain the control that they want. What is the connection? I cannot tell you, only you can find out if you two can manage to put aside any differences and learn to trust each other enough. I've decided that it might be a good idea to have her and her friends stay at Number 4, Privet Drive, but for only four days, then I will take all of you over to the Burrow for the rest of the summer. Please write me back with your answer clearly stating that you understand the contents of this letter.
Harry was shocked at the letter, Dumbledore's having people staying at my house, how in the world was he supposed to get the Dursleys to even agree to it?
In Titans Tower...
Raven, slowly walking nervously into the living room, noticed that everybody was gathered around the couch staring at her.
"…What?" Raven's voice quivered as she spoke.
"What was the letter about? When you received it, you just sort of closed yourself off and lock yourself in your room. Is everything okay?" Robin asked, his eyebrows furrowing in concern.
"Um…everything is fine, sort of-," Raven started, but she was cut off by Robin, "Sort of! What's this all about?"
"Well, you might want to sit down first before I tell you."
Robin, becoming really worried, decided to give Raven some slack. Maybe she will be more willing to tell them, if we were a bit relaxed. So he and the rest of the team sat with no complaints.
"-Sigh- ok the letter that I received was an invitation to a school of magic. I don't know if they invited me for any specific reason, but I felt that it might be a good experience. And before you say anything, the headmaster said that you guys can come along too. We could get the Titans East to watch over the world for us." Raven finished feeling a weight coming off of her shoulders they didn't seem mad.
"Who sent the letter to you? If you do go, I want you to keep an eye out and make sure that this headmaster is not evil," Robin stated matter-of-factly, "don't worry Raven, we're not mad or anything like that. We are just worried. Aren't we, guys?"
"Yea, Rae, just worried." Beastboy chimed in.
"Of course, Raven." Starfire and Cyborg said as well.
"However, I feel that it might be best if you go alone because we do still need to watch everything here. I feel that this might benefit you in the end." Robin finished up finally.
"Thank you, guys. You don't know how much this means to me. I'm going to go give the headmaster my answer now, if that's ok." Raven turned to go to the door, she turned back once more to see her friends preparing to fix dinner, play video games, and eating zorkaberries, with that she took her leave back into the safe haven that was her room.
She took out a piece of notebook paper, and wrote:
I, Raven Roth, accept the invitation to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. I'll have to decline the invitation to my friends because their matters are way to important and time consuming for them to be able to take a break from it. I am sorry.
Raven folded up the letter, slipped it inside of an envelope, and sat on her bed. She realized one problem. 'How the heck am I supposed to send this to him.'
Just as she finished her thought, the same owl that sent her letter came swooping in through her window, landing softly on the bed beside her.
"Smart owl." She whispered to herself as she took a piece of random string and tied the letter to its leg, and as soon as she finished, it flew off into the night.
"RAE, FOOD IS READY!" Beastboy shouted. Raven stood up, and walked out, ready to spend the next two nights having the most fun she can with the people she loves while she has the time.
Finally! First chapter's done! Please review, it is highly appreciated!
