Hermione was in the library looking for a good book, when she found a leather bound book on a shelf in the back of the library. ‘Odd,’ Hermione thought as she flipped through the book. ‘It’s hand written. I’ll show it to Harry and Ron at dinner tonight.’ Hermione then walked out of the library with the book.
“You found this in the library?” Ginny asked Hermione.
“Yeah, I did. Weird right?” Hermione said.
“Really weird.” Harry said taking the book from Ginny.
“Guess who’s coming this way,” Ron whispered.
“If it isn’t the Golden Trio and Weaselette.” Draco Malfoy said as he walked up.
“Go away Malfoy,” Hermione said through gritted teeth.
“What is this?” Draco asked taking the book from Harry, “Is it your diary Potter?” Draco said with a smirk. He opened the book and read, “April 10, 1912. So far the journey has been smooth.” As he said this, the book glowed and he, Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Ginny were sucked in. Literally.
Hermione looked around and saw that she was wearing an early 1900’s dress with beautiful jewelry. Ron was standing next to her in early 1900’s clothes too. They were both standing on a dock next to the biggest ship they had ever seen. The two of them also had memories that weren’t theirs.
“Hermione?” Ron asked, “Where are we and what are we doing here?”
“We are about to board the RMS Titanic, which means we are in Southampton, England. The time is 11:30 A.M. on Wednesday, April, 10, 1912.”
“How do you know all this Hermione?”
“I know because I’ve been studying the Titanic for years. Whomever the book belongs to must have been on the Titanic. Come on Ronald, before we don’t get on.”
The two of them hurried on board with the rest of the passengers. They had yet to find out that they were in first-class.
Ginny and Harry on the other hand were already on the ship. Harry had figured out that they were in middle-class from what he knew about the Titanic and what deck they were on.
“Harry do you think we’ll be able to find Hermione, Ron and Ferret Boy?” Ginny asked Harry.
“I don’t know. This is a pretty big ship.” Harry told her.
“We have to find them and soon.” Ginny said.
Draco looked around; he too was on the ship. He looked down at his clothes and saw that he was wearing loose britches and a loose cotton shirt.
“Where in the bloody world am I?” Draco mumbled to himself. “And what am I wearing? I really need to find Potter, Granger, and the two Weasleys.” He too had two sets of memories.
“Hey Mallory, can you believe that we are on the Titanic?” An unfamiliar, but at the same time familiar voice asked.
Draco thought for a minute before answering. ‘Mallory… Draco Mallory! That’s it I must be Mallory. We are on the Titanic, third-class passengers. He is Robert Brady. Okay I think I have it down,’ Draco thought.
“No, Brady I can’t believe we are on the Titanic, the world’s largest ship. She is said to practically unsinkable. I never dreamed I could be here!” Draco told Robert.
“Well Draco Mallory, my friend, here we are. We might be third-class, but we will be living in style on the Titanic!” Robert said.
“What time is it, Robert?” Draco asked his new companion.
“Almost noon.” Was the reply.
“We’ll be leaving soon,” and as if in reply to Draco’s statement the engines of the ship started.
They were now on their way from Southampton, England to Cherbourg, France to pick up nearly 300 more passengers. From Cherbourg they would go to Queenstown, Ireland. After Queenstown they would head for New York.
A/N: How do you like it? I’m trying to put a lot of fact into this fan fic about the RMS Titanic. So tell me what you think in a review! Thanks!
