Chapter 3: Trouble With Introductions
They all stood as though they had been hit by Hermoines Petrificus Totalus spell (ask Neville, it's no fun). Even the usually stoic Potions Professor stood, mouth agape and lost for words at the revelation. The silence was broken by James' stuttering question towards the headmaster.
"We-We're in the past?"
"That is what I was trying to tell you when we were in Mum's, or what was Mum's, office you nitwit, it is a time turner, gee what do time turners do? They couldn't take you BACK IN TIME." Rose seethed, trying to keep from blowing up and looking foolish in front of one of history's greatest wizards. Her mum had taught her that first impressions are the most important thing.
"Headmaster, you can't tell me that those children could possibly hail from the future, and last I checked there is currently only one left in the Potter line" Snape said indignantly. Only then did it hit the others the meaning of the old Professors words.
"Oh my god, could it be?" Fred asked.
"Excuse me, what year is this?" Teddy voiced aloud what everyone wondered, Dumbledore smiled with a twinkle in his eye 'Scary' thought all the children.
"It is the year 1994 my boy, and your parents 4th year" they all looked shocked but none so more than Severus Snape who looked horrified.
"Are you saying that Potter has SPAWNS, Merlin I hope I don't see that day" Al looked over to his deceased namesake. Is this really the man who his father trusted with his life? Someone who openly shows disgust towards the very thought of his future life having children?
"I do apologize for not letting you introduce yourselves, please do so, I assure you this will not leave my office" Albus told them.
"Ahem, I am Rosaline Weasley, daughter of Ronald Billius Weasley and Hermoine Jean Weasley nee Granger."
"My name is Hugo Weasley, Roses brother."
"I am Fredrick Weasley, son of George Weasley and Angelina Weasley nee Johnson"
"I am Theodore Remus Lupin, son to Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Lupin nee Tonks, godson to Harry James Potter"
"Hello, I'm James Sirius Potter, son of the one and only Harry James Potter and Ginevra Molly Potter nee Weasley." They all rolled their eyes at his display but none the less turned to Al who was worrying his lip between his teeth.
"Well" Severus spat "What name did the Potter brat stick you with, probably something completely inane." Hearing this Al silently seethed, forgetting his hesitance just so he could rub it in the dour mans face.
"My name is Albus SEVERUS Potter, James' brother, and according to my dad, names after the two BRAVEST men he knows and would lay his life on the line for them. Are you pleased with your answer, PROFESSOR?" he made sure that certain words were more stressed to prove his point that the man shouldn't be talking about his father in such a manner. Said man was looking at him, eyes wide and mouth agape once again at a lost for words.
"Well" Albus began "tonight seems to have been quite eventful, so we will now discuss your arrangements and decide from their where we shall go, can we agree to that?" everyone nodded. "Now, considering we have no way of returning you to your own time, you must remain here for the time being, we may as well enroll you in classes since we do not want you to lag on your studies, all you must tell me is what classes you were going to take and what year you are all in."
"Will we be sorted?" Al asked.
"Of course my dear boy, what is school life without some competition, we will introduce you to the school under alias' that you choose as transfer students during breakfast in two days, enough time to get everything in order." Dumbledore says, his eyes twinkling again, they all shuddered.
"What about the way we look, surely our parents will recognize themselves in us, lord knows everyone in our time will as well. Especially Al, he is practically the spitting image of harry when he was this age minus his brown eyes" Teddy reminded.
"We only need to put some minor glamour charms on you for subtle changes, hair and eye color, facial structure, simple things that one only blatantly sees."
"What do we do if they start asking questions like 'where do you come from' or 'why are you coming to Hogwarts now?'" Rose asked.
"You all seem like clever children, you will have enough time to make a background for yourselves, anything beyond basic knowledge and be deemed classified or too hard to talk about depending on what you plan to go about with your stories." They all agreed to this, they will have to go with the headmasters plan if they plan to stay here for too long. "But all that can wait until tomorrow, for now we all need a goodnights rest." With that Albus settled them in two rooms, one for the boys and a private room for Rose, and they slept awaiting what the next few days will bring.
I know these chapters are really short but bear with me, they may get longer in the future. Also the fact that this chapter is up so early is because I am currently sick, which I forgot to mention in the last chapter, so I really have little to do and I wait for the agonizing pain to go away. If you want to give me suggestions on what to do with the story please tell me so long as it is helpful and not mean or rude, i am very intolerant of that.
