Summary:
The war is over. The Golden Trio remains intact and they, along with their friends, return to Hogwarts to continue the studies they left behind. Inter-house unity is a priority, but not everyone thinks it's a good idea. Hermione Granger, however, does. And so does a certain Slytherin boy.
This is the story of how these two join forces for a good cause, and how this affects their personal lives - as well as the lives of those closest to them.

First fanfic that I'm writing! Please read and review. :)


Chapter 1: Prologue: Debut
[View Online]

Dear Harry,

It's great to hear that things between you and Ginny have finally happened! I've always said you two belong together, and I hope this time around it's the real thing. I'm so happy for you, Harry. If there's anyone who deserves this kind of happiness, it's you.

So sorry I had to leave the Burrow for the rest of the summer vacation. After forcing my parents to forget about me for a whole year, it only felt right to spend the last month before school traveling with them. I'm also sorry that I had to leave you to fend for yourself against what I'm sure is Ron's inability to suppress his negativity about your relationship with Gin. I know how hard it must be to go against that alone. I promise I'll write to him and beg him to give you two a break.

Anyway, hope you lot are having fun! I miss you all already. Say hello to Mr and Mrs Weasley, Fred, George, and Percy (if you happen to catch him at home) for me. Give my love to Ginny, and tell her I still expect an owl from her as well telling me about you two! And Harry, do me a favor please. Look after Ron for me. It's just, you know his temper; it worries me when I'm not around.

P.S. See you all at the station on September 1!

Lots of love,
Hermione

Hermione,

I miss you loads already. Constantly being around Harry and my sister makes me miss you even more. I'm happy for them too, I honestly am. But she is my sister, and he is my best friend. Knowing they do things couples do.. It still makes me queasy. But since you asked, I won't be so negative. Or at least not so obvious about it.

I understand if you can only write once or twice a week. I know you want to spend this time catching up with your parents, and England's owl service is loads better than anywhere else.

I can't wait to see you at the start of term.

I love you,
Ron

------------------------------------------------
Dear Hermione,

You've obviously heard about me and Harry. I was going to owl you about it, of course, but Harry beat me to it. I was only just starting to wrap my finger around the whole thing when Harry told me you were expecting an owl!

I'm not quite sure what to tell you, to be honest. I just can't seem to describe it; all I know is that I'm happier than I've ever been in my life. It feels like everything has fallen in it's right place, like it's finally going right. Everything is there - the sparks, the fireworks, the butterflies, the involuntary smiling. I know it all sounds cliche and gushy and not like me at all. But Harry is unlike anyone I've ever met, and I'm a different, better me with him. He and I belong together Hermione, I can feel it all the way down to my core. All I know is this is the best I've ever felt.

I do hope you're having a great time with your parents. We all understand why you can't write often; Fleur says owl service in France isn't quite so efficient. About the bunch of letters Ron has been getting lately, turns out they're not his. They were all fan mail to the twins; it just so happens that Ron is always there to get them. My mistake, sorry.

Anyway, I can't wait to see you! Being around all the boys is driving me crazy. Two more weeks!

Love,
Gin

------------------------------------------------
Dear Ms Granger,

We are very pleased to inform you that you have been selected to be Head Girl for this academic year. We are aware that you were previously a prefect, however, being Head Girl has much heavier duties and responsibilities as you, along with the Head Boy, will be in charge of the entire student body.

Your duties start officially as soon as the Hogwarts Express signals it's departure. You and the Head Boy (the identity of whom we have decided to keep a secret from you, to add some mystery and excitement to the start of term; likewise, your identity has been kept a secret to him) are to be the last to board the train as you must first usher all the students inside. The Heads compartment is at the front of the train; your next duties will be detailed there.

Attached to this letter is your seventh year list of books and materials.

We look forward to having you back with us this year. Should you have any questions, send them back with this owl.

Signed,
Minerva McGonagall, Deputy Headmistress
and
Albus Dumbledore, Headmaster
