Chapter 1 A Time of Crisis

The Gryffindor common room was dark and empty, except for a single redheaded 5th year girl, crouched over, concentrating extremely hard on her schoolwork. Lily Evans was a rather pretty girl, with long, sleek and wavy red hair and startling green, almond-shaped eyes. She was a Gryffindor prefect and at the top of her class, but it was always transfiguration that got her stumped and it wasn’t surprising that she had left her transfig homework till the last minute.

“How the heck am I supposed to know the answer to this?” she muttered under her breath as she crossed out another answer yet again.

Meanwhile, upstairs in the boys’ dormitory, James Potter had just awakened from a strange but pleasant dream and was smiling dreamily. He had just dreamt that Lily Evans had said yes to coming to the Christmas Ball with him and they were now kissing. Before he returned to resume his dream, he decided to get a snack and wandered into the common room.

“Evans, Evans, Evans. Not like you to leave homework till the last minute”.

“Not now Potter. I have no time to be distracted by you” she replied angrily.

James Potter was a tall, quite handsome 5th year Gryffindor, with messy black hair that looked like it had never been combed (which she suspected he did on purpose). He was very popular and highly known for being an excellent seeker on the Gryffindor House Quidditch team, which personally did not impress her, and for being the leader of his gang, the infamous Marauders, known for their pranks and troublemaking. What irritated Lily most about James was his arrogance and big headedness, especially how he never worked for his excellent marks and thought that he was better than all of the others. She never lost an opportunity to tell him off and they had never been able to have a civilized conversation.

“Aw. I see you’re doing transfiguration and you know how good I am at that. Fancy any help Evans?” he asked, grinning.

“You think I’d ever accept help from you. I’m better than that” she replied hotly, this time staring him straight into his eyes.

“Suit yourself than” he said, about to turn his back, when he suddenly noticed a silver, circular object, somewhat like a watch, but nothing like he’d ever seen before. “Hey, what’s this?”

James picked it up and only then did Lily realize what he’d seen. Suddenly, she panicked when she saw her secret time turner that only Professor McGonagall knew of so that she could take all of her extra classes, in his hands.

“Give me that back,” she shrieked as she tried to grab it from him.

“Why don’t you go out with me, huh? How about the Christmas Ball? I’ll gladly give it back then,” he said quickly. “It wouldn’t hurt, would it? To go out with me just once?” For as long as he could remember, James always had a thing for Lily. He could easily have had any girl, even more gorgeous than Lily anytime, but he only wanted Lily, and she was unfortunately the one girl who despised him.

“Don’t even start with me. I don’t date big inflated heads like you and besides, I already told you I’m going with someone else okay. Now give me that back!”

“Yeah! And whom are you going with, huh? If you’re not going with me then you won’t get this back!” he said backing away.

Lily couldn’t take this. She lunged at him just as he started turning the dial. She clutched onto it but it was too late. They were spinning and spinning and spinning into darkness until suddenly they dropped to the ground, on top of each other.

“Now you’ve done it. Oh this is bad” Lily shrieked as she tried her best to push James off of her.

“What have I done?” James asked, clearly puzzled as he stumbled, getting up.

“It was a time turner you oaf. You’ve taken us through time but I have no idea when” she said panicking, looking around frantically for an answer. Much sooner than she expected though, she spotted the notice board and quickly scanned it for a clue.

“Oh my God! I can’t believe this. We’ve gone into the future! Do you know what year it is?” she asked angrily and not waiting for an answer continued, “It’s 1997. 20 years into the future!”
