AN:

This chapter isn't TRUELY a chapter..

Its a little blurb with a question at the end...

JUST enough story so that I won't get in trouble for posting only an AN.

I don't own HP:

During lunch Hermione went to the library while the boys went to stuff their faces. Hermione joined them in the Great Hall ten minutes into lunch saying, "There are no books in the library remotely pertaining to You-Know-Who's last rise, Dumbledore's history, or even any books on Phoenixes in general. McGollangal must have taken them out while we had that Quidditch practice."

"Why would she take out books on Phoenixes?" Harry asked aloud.

"Why would you even look up stuff about Phoenixes?" Ron added.

"Because, those books could give us clues to the nature of the order," Hermione answered both questions. She ladled some soup into her bowl and said, "We just as well piece together the few clues we have so that when we sneak into Hogsmeade we can get in and out as fast as we can."

"You're encouraging us to sneak to Hogsmeade?" Ron asked shaking his head. "We're too much of a bad influence on you. Anyway what clues? We only know the old coot is a member of the Order."

"We have a couple of clues," Hermione protested. "From the fact that Dumbledore sent Hagrid on that errand over the summer we can safely assume that some of the other members are teachers," Hermione said.

"Which ones do you think are members?" Harry asked.

"Professor McGollangal for one," Hermione replied. "She wouldn't be so testy about Dumbledore giving us hints otherwise."

"Hey!" Harry exclaimed. "Remember the night of Dobby's wedding? McGollangal and Figg nearly caught us. The halls were crawling with people who weren't supposed to be in Hogwarts, like Mad-eye Moody, and there were a couple of names I didn't recognize."

"Harry, I think you're onto something thereā€¦" Hermione said getting a glint in her eyes.

AN:

Blurb done. 292 words. Enough to say 'chapter' so I can post this.

*

QUESTION: Do you want me to end this story NOW? or do you want to wait several months while I try to write it the way I want to without copying other people's fics.

*

If I end the story within the next chapter or so, ignore all clues I've dropped in the previous chapters.

*

If I try to write it the way I want to you'll wait several months.

*

*

Either way, this blurb is probably going to be modified...

I appologize. I've been trying and trying to write this chapter but it WILL not work. At least not now. Please review and tell me which you would prefer.
