Chapter 1: Better be......Ravenclaw!

The Girl and The Snake

“Here comes the train, mum.”

“Oh Rose, you be good now.”

“Goodbye Hugo. I’ll miss you.”

“I’ll miss you too Rose. I’ll owl you every week! I promise!”

“I’d love that Hugo. Goodbye dad, I’ll see you for Christmas Holiday.”

“Goodbye my Rossie. Owl your mum.”

“I will. I promise.”

“Make sure you make good friends. Tell Albus we miss him, and that has father must come for a visit. You’re mum “simply must catch up with Ginevra!” Ron leaned down and whispered, “I can’t wait to find out what house you’re in. You know, Gryffindor runs in the family.”

“Oh I sure hope so dad!”

“Alright, off you go. Have a nice time my Rossie.”

“Goodbye Mum! Goodbye dad! I love you Hugo!”

Rose ran off and boarded the train.

“Oh I hope she does well, Ronald.”

“Of course she will! With your brains, and my looks…”

Hermione smacked her husband playfully.

“Let’s go, dear, Hugo, before your dad gets too big for his britches.”




“Too late…” Hugo added playfully.


Rose boarded the train. Growing up in a wizarding family didn’t help the fact that she knew almost no one. Rose stumbled along, compartment after compartment, until she found one with her cousin, Albus, and his new friends.

“Hello Rose, this is Lorcan and Lysander Lovegood-Scamander. They’re first years just like us.

“Hello.” She replied. Rose would never understand how he always managed to make friends so fast.

“Actually we prefer just Scamander. Two last names thing is over rated.” Said Lorcan

“Yeah, besides he prefer our dad. Our mum’s a bit loony.” Added Lysander

The three boys laughed, and began to discuss quitich. Rose could tell when she wasn’t wanted, so she continued walking along the aisle looking for an empty compartment. She approached the last one, which contained only one boy. A first year by his looks, He had shimmery white blonde hair and pale skin. Piercing blue eyes, like the sky, glued to the muggle book about mysteries in front of him. He was thin, but had some muscle on him. Rose knocked and opened the door. She opened her mouth as to say hello when the boy said

“Get out.”

His voice was deep, husky.

“But…” Rose tried to argue but the boy spoke again.


Rose turned around and as she approached the door, she turned again.

“You may not tell me what to do, especially without an introduction.”

“You get your spite from your mum do you?”

“How do you know my mum?”

“Everyone knows your mum, she’s a war hero, remember.”

“Oh, yes.”

“And you get your looks from your dad.”

“How do you know...?” But she stopped, realizing he was just a war hero as well.

He looked up then. His eyes bore into hers. She tore away her gaze then, and looked down at her trunk.

“Are you going to tell me your name then?”

“Well, I figured you knew it, since you seem to know all my secretes.”

“I do. But I’d like to hear it from you.”

“Rose. Rose Weasley.”

“Mmmn. Rossie. I like it.”

“And you Mystery?

“That’s Mr. Mystery to you. I suppose you will find out soon enough.”

“Sit.” He commanded.

She sat. “Watcha’ reading?”

“Muggle book…you wouldn’t know it…”

“Wrong. Coming from a muggle-born offspring, my mum The Hermione Granger-Weasley has taught me her love of muggle books.”

“Sherlock Holmes.”




“A classic.”


“First yer’s this way!”

“C’mon Rose!” Rose and the Mystery boy had gone from a pleasant conversation, to quick friends. The two boarded the boat, along with Albus and Lorcan and Lysander. There was only four to a boat, so Lorcan hid on the floor while Hagrid, the gigantic gate keeper, walked by and sent them on their way.




Rose smiled as she walked in the doors of Hogwarts: School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She remembered her mum telling her countless stories about her days here, and it was weird being here herself. She turned and smiled at the Mystery boy. He was really quite handsome in the candle light….


Weasley, Rose!

Rose walked, cautiously up to the stool; and sat down.

Hmmmm. I’ve seen kind like you before…

Please be Gryffindor, please be Gryffindor!

Mum was the brightest witch in her year…

Please be Gryffindor, please be Gryffindor!

Father was loyal and brave……

Please be Gryffindor, please be Gryffindor!

Please be Gryffindor, please be Gryffindor!

And potential of even more…..

Please be Gryffindor, please be Gryffindor!

But you have your father’s heart and soul….

Please be Gryffindor, please be Gryffindor!

With the bravery of a true lion…..

Please be Gryffindor, please be Gryffindor!

So I weigh and I weigh…..


The boy looked up. What was taking so long!



Please be Gryffindor, please be Gryffindor!

And I weigh again, but I must go with the afore….

Please be Gryffindor, please be Gryffindor! Wait…wha….

Better be……Ravenclaw!


Rose opened her eyes to see many students cheering.

Better be Ravenclaw.




Rose reluctantly walked over to her new house.


Malfoy, Scorpius!

She recognized that name. Rose looked up to see him wink at her, the lanky silver haired boy she had just met.

Better be…….Ravenclaw!
