Chapter 1: Introductions
Summary: James, Sirius, Remus, Peter and Lily get their letters.
The Best Friends:
“James” Lily whispered, entering her best friends’ room. “James, wake up, it’s important”
Lily Evans was an eleven-year-old girl with fiery red hair and almond shaped eyes. She lived across the street from her best friend in Gordric Hollows.
“James, wake up right this moment,” Lily said putting her hands on her hips
James Potter was an eleven-year-old boy with messy jet-black hair and warm hazel eyes. He knew Lily since he was two.
James groaned as he rolled over, trying to block his best friend annoying voice from his restful sleep.
“James…” Lily said warningly as she shook James, “Don’t you dare ignore me”
James growled as Lily pulled his covers off him, “Gosh, woman, what is it?”
Lily smiled before she answered, “Someone grumpy I wonder why?”
James just shook his head and put on his glasses “Can I help you?”
Lily remembered why she was there, so going into her pocket, she pulled out a letter than she handed it to James and said, “Read it” before she started pacing
James raised an eyebrow before he began to read it aloud:
Dear Ms. Lily Evans,
We are proud to announce that you have been accepted to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. We remind you that you should not reveal to any muggles (non-magical people), excluding your parents, that you are a witch.
We expect your owl no later than August 1. The start of the term will begin on September 1.
James felt two emotions as he finished the letter. He was happy that Lily was a witch but he was envious of her because he did not receive his letter yet.
As he looked up at Lily, he saw that she was looking at him as if he had a second head. Than she shook her head and began to mutter, “Oh god…you’re a muggle and I told you…oh Merlin they are going to take my powers away. Oh Merlin, what am I going to do?” Lily finished as she began to panic
James just looked at her amused before he burst out laughing.
Lily glared at him before she said, angrily, “What is so funny, James Henry Potter,”
James immediately stopped laughing and clearing his throat he began, “Well, you see Lils—“he was interrupted, however, when there was a tap at the window.
James gave a startled yelp before he moved toward where an owl was waiting. Opening the window, the owl flew in and dropped a letter on James’ bed.
James went over to his bed and picked up the letter. After seeing his name and the Hogwarts crest he gave a whoop before he opened his bedroom door and headed downstairs all the while he was chanting, “I’m going to Hogwarts!”
Back in his room, Lily just stood there, blinking, dumbfounded.
“Sirius” Walburga Black yelled as she entered her son’s room.
Sirius Black was an eleven-year-old boy with midnight should-length hair and ocean blue eyes. He was the ‘white’ sheep of the Black family.
Sirius groaned as he heard his mother screeched his name ‘Can’t that woman leave me alone’ he thought as his sheets were pulled off.
“Get up this instance,” Walburga snapped as she began leaving the room
“Yes, mother,” Sirius, said with a little sarcasm
After getting dressed, he made his way down to the kitchen. He rolled his eyes as he saw his brother, Regulas Black, being pampered by his mother.
Sitting down he began eating. After a few minutes, an owl tapped on the window. Getting up, he made toward the window. Opening the window, the owl soared in and dropped the letter on Sirius plate.
Sirius wondered why his heart was pounding as he opened the letter. As he read it he smiled he leaving. He was leaving this hellhole.
Passing his mother, who was glaring at him, he said coolly, “I’m going to Hogwarts”
“Remus” Laura Lupin said, as she entered her son’s bedroom.
Remus Lupin was an eleven-year-old boy with sandy brown hair and amber eyes. He was also a werewolf.
“Yes, mum,” Remus, said looking up from his book, ‘The Lion, the Witch, and The wardrobe’, and looking at his mother.
“You have mail but it came with an owl,” Laura said as she sat next to her son before she handed the letter to him.
Looking at it curiously, Remus opened the letter and began to read it aloud:
Dear Mr. Remus Lupin,
We are proud to announce that you have been accepted to Hogwarts School of witchcraft and Wizardry. We are aware that you are a werewolf but precautions were taken and you now have a place for every full moon.
We expect you owl no later than August 1. The term begins on September 1.
Remus could not believe it, he was a wizard and even if he was a werewolf, he still could go. He felt an arm on his shoulder and looking up he saw his mother smiling than she whispered, “Well?”
Remus thought for a moment before he smiled and began, “I…I’m going to Hogwarts”
“Peter, you have mail,” Josie Pettigrew called to her son
Peter Pettigrew was eleven-years-old with thin blonde hair and watery pale blue eyes.
“Okay, mom,” He called back as he went downstairs
“Here you go” Josie said as she handed her son the letter
“Thanks” Peter said before he opened it, reading it quickly he smiled looking at his mother.
“Well? What does it say?” Josie asked curiously
Peter beamed as he said proudly, “I’m going to Hogwarts”
End of Chapter
A/n: I know, I know why I had to put peter in it. Because he was a Marauder after all. I believe that he was good but something happened and that is what I am going to put. I have my own philosophy on why Peter betrayed his friends and no, it is not because of fear no mines is a little darker and will be reveled in the seventh year.
This story may have a sequel if I notice it have more than 50 chapters. However, if it does not than it will go to first through seventh year of the Marauders years at Hogwarts. I will defiantly put up a sequel with how Lily and James got married until they die. This is my new series and I will be mostly be working on this so expect little updates on my other stories (Sorry!).
Next Update: I am currently working on Lily Potter + Pregnant + Marauders = Chaos which was suppose to be a little thing that I thought would not get a lot of reviews but it shocked me when I got 60 reviews and over 1,000 reads for it with only 2 chapters! Wow! I wonder how many I will get by the fifth chapter. Lol!
Anyway, Read and Review please. Tell me if you like it or hate it! Should I continue or abandon it?
