Had this idea for a while now, hope you enjoy it :) (Note: During this story I will use modern slang and maybe some other mordern stuff as simply i don't know exactly what they said or used back then)
Introducing Lord Potter
Chapter I: I'm A What?!
"Remember Cedric. Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right, and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort. Remember Cedric Diggory."
Harry didn't think he deserved the praise that Dumbledore had given him at the start of the speech. He didn't want to be reminded of that night, the pain, physical and emotional. One thing he did agree on, was Dumbledore telling the truth of what had happened to Cedric, he didn't deserve lies about how he died, it wouldn't of given him justice.
He was too lost in his thoughts to notice as everyone left, it was only when Professor Dumbledore sat down next to him that he looked up.
"It's good," He coughed, "That they know, Cedric didn't deserve anything less."
"No, he didn't, he died far too young, but that's not what I'm here for." Dumbledore replied.
"What are you here for then?" Said Harry.
"To inform you of your coming into lordship-" He was cut off.
"Lordship? What? Me, a lord? Are you crazy?" Harry said incredulously.
"No, I'm not crazy and yes, on your 15th birthday you will be be Lord of the Most Ancient and Noble House of Potter!" Dumbledore with a dramatic ending.
"But I don't even know how to be a lord, or what it entails or anything!" Harry cried out.
"Harry it's all been sorted out, you will go to Sirius's house for the summer where he will teach you the how's and what's of being a lord, you won't be alone in this endeavor, Mr. Longbottom will also be becoming a lord," Said Dumbledore, "Along with that, I've also decided you will be given training by me in magic."
"You'll be training me in magic? Why?" Asked Harry.
"Harry, before you were born, a prophecy was made, it was recited thus: 'The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches ... born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh month dies ... and the Dark Lord will mark him as his equal, but he will have power the Dark Lord knows not ... and either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives ... the one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord will be born as the seventh month dies ..'. I have reason to believe that you are the one born as the seventh month dies Harry and I want you to live, not die in this confrontation."
"So I'm some sort of... chosen one?" Said Harry. "Well what about Neville? He's born as the seventh month dies."
"The dark lord will mark him as his equal, your scar Harry," Dumbledore replied.
"Well I guess that's fair enough but what about this power the dark lord knows not? As far as i'm aware I don't have any special powers," Countered Harry.
"Love Harry, though it appears from what you've told me Voldemort has gotten around your mother's wards, but I'm sure love will still be extremely useful in your endeavors against the dark lord." Dumbledore explained.
"So what? I'm supposed to grab some girl and shag her?" Said Harry, liking the idea.
"Not exactly Harry," Dumbledore said, his eye twinkling, "Your mother when she died for you, it created a special bond, that protected you and made Voldemort unable to touch you or enter your relatives house. Now after what you told me about how Tom Riddle was reborn, I believe the protection has been broken. But I think you'd be best to get to bed Harry, you need to think these things over." and with that Dumbledore got up and left.
Stomach growling, Harry took a slight detour on his way to the Gryffindor tower, stopping by the kitchens for some treacle tart.
Harry's trunk rattled as they passed a bend on the train. He'd been trying to think of a way to tell his friends what Dumbledore had told him the night before, but he didn't want Ron to get jealous and not believe him again. Maybe I should ask Neville for some help, he's in the same spot as me, he thought.
"I've gotta go talk to Neville about something, I'll catch up with you guys later." He said, brushing past them as he left the compartment.
He wondered what to ask Neville about, everything probably. He had no idea what he had to do as a lord, more importantly, the perks.
Soon enough he found Neville in a compartment with Susan Bones and Hannah Abbot.
Sliding the door open, he said, "Hey ladies man, I need to talk to you in private." with a smirk on his face.
Blushing Neville said, "Sure" before going out into the corridor with Harry, "So, what's up?"
"Lord Longbottom I request thine assistance in helping a new lord out." Harry said in his most posh accent.
Smirking Neville replied in an equally posh accent, "Oh it will be mine pleasure to assist the most ancient and noble house of Potter," Switching to his normal voice, "When did you find out?"
"Last night," Neville laughed, "Hey not my fault I didn't even know we had lords, so tell me man, what are the perks?"
"Always wanting the gold eh Harry?" Said Neville chuckling, "Well you get all the stuff your family owns for one, you should probably check out Gringotts for that, last time I checked your slightly richer than the House of Longbottom by a few hundred thousand galleons."
Harry's eyes widened, "But my vault has only 50,000 galleons in it."
"That's probably your trust vault, I didn't need one as my grandmother is matriarch until I turn 15." He replied "You also get your own wizengamot seat, not to mention the press will be all over us since we're the youngest lords since Jacibo Black in 1542."
"How old was he?" Harry said
"12, apparently after he wrecked havoc with his powers as lord, they raised the age to 15," Neville replied "Also we get emancipated so we can do our duties as lords-"
"AWESOME! FIREWHISKY!" Harry blurted out.
A few heads poked out of their compartments looking around for the noise, making Harry blush and whistle loudly.
Neville laughed, "Yes as with everything else it entails being an adult, applying for our apparation licenses, and etc, etc," stopping for a breath before he continued, "As I was saying before with our duties as lords, they are first and foremost being the heads of our 'most ancient and noble houses', we also have political power in the sense that we can along with our duties as members of the wizengamot, we can also, with the other heads of the most ancient and noble houses-"
"How many ancient and noble houses are there?" Harry said cutting him off.
"7 since it's the most magical number in existence, as I was saying," He stopped for a moment to give Harry a quick glare, "We can, along with the other heads of the most noble and ancient houses, in a majority vote of 4 or more veto any bill the wizengamot wishes to pass, even the chief warlock can't do anything about it."
"Isn't that, well, a bit injust, that because we're born into these families, we have control over the laws?" Harry asked.
"If you haven't noticed Harry, the wizarding world is a bit behind in the times," Neville said chuckling, "But don't worry the minster for magic presides over us and can cancel our veto if he so decides, and since he's voted in by the wizarding public of Britain, that is fair."
"That's good, though I don't really trust Fudge, when it comes to anything, the nutter doesn't even believe Voldemort is back," Harry said slightly pissed at Fudge's incompetence.
"Yeah, let's hope he gets voted out of office soon yeah?" Neville said, "But anyways I'm sure Dumbledore will find you a proper tutor in the ways of being a lord."
"He already has, my godfather," Harry said.
"You have a godfather?" Neville asked.
"Harry has a godfather?" Dean said as he walked up.
"Why so surprised?" Harry said grinning.
"Just never knew you had one, he hasn't been in the papers at least" Dean said.
"Oh I'm pretty sure he has" Harry muttered, quiet enough so they wouldn't hear.
"So anyways did you guys hear about Stephen?" Dean said, wincing slightly.
"Only that he was in the hospital wing for two weeks because he made a move on Greengrass." Harry said, shaking his head.
"Wasn't he in there because she hit him in the..." Neville trailed off pointing downwards.
"Yeah, the poor guy, then again only someone with a death wish tries something with Daphne Greengrass," Dean said, shaking his head, "She's a little minx, that's for sure."
"Damn she's fiesty!" Harry chuckled.
"What are you guys doing out here anyway, haven't you found a compartment?" Dean asked.
"Well I have but Harry was just talking to me about something, let's go back in yeah?" Neville said pointing to the door behind him where they could see two Hufflepuff girls talking.
"Well 'Mione and Ron probably are wondering where I've gone, so I'll get back to them." Harry said, turning.
"Come on Harry, live a little, you can't be that whipped from your best friends, hang out with us yeah?" Dean said taunting Harry.
Harry turned back instantly, "Harry Potter is not whipped." before striding into the compartment, leaving the two boys laughing as they went in after him.
"So what was that about?" Susan asked Harry once they had all sat down.
"Knowing Me and Nev, it'll probably be in Witch Weekly, hell even the Daily Prophet will publish it in about a month, right Nev?" Harry replied with a smirk that said you'll never get it out of me.
"Yeah, might even go global if it gets enough attention." Neville said, with the same smirk as Harry.
"Probably will, I have two good friends overseas that'll be able to help out with that if I asked, though one of them's coming to England soon."
"That doesn't help at all, you just made it ten times more intriguing than it already was with all that hype." Hannah said glaring at them.
"We know." They said grinning.
How'd it go? Mainly just an information filler with Dumbledore and Neville, we'll have more of that in the next chapter with Sirius but after that fun, jokes and crazy stuff will happen :D
Also for any of you wondering Stephen Cornfoot is an actual Ravenclaw, just not mentioned in the books.
EDIT: After a crushing blow to my pride and deciding to take advice from a reviewer, I have redone this chapter in the hopes you guys will understand and enjoy this story more as I don't want it to be a 'teen smut story' it's rated T for a reason, not M. Don't worry though, it will be based on alot of humour. I hope this new information pleases you and in the future chapters more information will be revealed.
