Harry Potter and the Necromancer Moon
Chapter #5 “Introductions, and the Beginning”
Harry and Lord Death arrived at the Front gate of the Hall of Reconciliation, at around half past one in the morning, he was to tired to even stir, however when he saw the grounds and looked upon the land he was going to be living in he saw that it was like something out of a dream, he looked at the grounds before him and could see that there was a part of the woods that was frozen and that surrounding it was a forest that looked green with life.
He noticed the mausoleum like structure and as he was looking at it Lord Death said “That is what you could call the Necromancy classroom”
“So it is like a crypt where there are human bodies in there?” Harry asked apprehensively.
“Yes, and no, in five weeks you and I will be spending a lot of time there, but not until you have mastered the other schools of magic”
“That is a relieve” Harry confessed relaxing at the thought of not learning Necromancy until the end.
“In time Harry, you will learn that Necromancy is not something to be afraid of, but rather something to be interested in, like a hobby to you, if you will”
“I am just afraid to turn to the Dark Arts, like many others before me, they take them on as a hobby and next thing you know, you have Dark Lords and Death Eaters running around claiming that they are the most powerful”
“Always remember that magic, is only magic, it becomes light or Dark when the intent of the wizard comes into play” said Lord Death.
“For instance if your friends are being held hostage by a group of Death eaters, and your only choice is to kill them, in order to save them, wouldn’t you be choosing the lesser of tow evils by killing the person attempting to kill your friends?”
“I guess when you put it that way, it makes sense” admitted Harry thinking back to the Department of Mysteries “Will I be learning powerful Dark Magic?”
“Yes, but not until you rich your training with Lady Flame and Myself, a bit here and there with the rest, but until then it would be just very powerful Light Magic, and magic that borders between the tow of them, by the time you are finished you will know what true power is really all about”
“Do you think I am really the one you have been waiting for?”
“Yes, I really do, however if you have any doubt or you need any prove, you will have it when I introduce you to the rest of the Council.”
“I trust in your word Lord Death, if you say so, then I believe you, you have shown nothing for me to doubt you, therefore I will not.”
“Good Harry, very good, with you being like this I truly believe that you are the one to lead us in this second war”
As they talked they kept walking towards the entrance of the castle. Harry stopped for a moment and looked at the carvings in the door.
He was mesmerized by the magnificence of the castle and its detail; he looked up to the twelve towers and the twelve stories, and the gargoyles that looked over the entrance courtyard in all ways.
When they entered the castle, in the entrance hall that Harry estimated to be at least twice as big as the one at Hogwarts he saw a group of four people standing side by side all wearing black robes with different colors in the sleeves of the robes.
“Brothers and Sisters” Lord Death called the four persons, which walked closer to where they were standing “I present you the soon to be High Councilor Harry Potter”
They all vowed their heads and the one closest to Harry offered his hand; the man was wearing a black robe with a brown sleeve and said as he shook his hand with Harry’s “I am Lord Earth, but we will meet each other more fully in about three weeks” he said shaking hands with him.
Harry walked to the person to his side and took the hand offered to him, when he took the hand he saw that this person was a woman and he took the hand and kissed it before the women spoke “I am Lady Rain, I will be your second instructor, Harry, until then”
With that Harry walked to the next person in line, he shook hands with the man that had white sleeves and said “I am Lord Gust and I have the pleasure of being the one to train you first, do not worry, I will go and fetch you tomorrow to start our training, by the end of it you will see that apparition is no longer needed when you can use the wind to travel”
“I am honored Lord Gust” said Harry vowing his head “I look forward to your our training together”
Lord Gust smiled at him and then he walked to the last person in line. He noticed that this to was a woman and so when she offered her hand he kissed her and then vowed his head to her.
“I am Lady Flame” said the women with a very pleasant almost seductively accent.
“My very pleasure my lady” said Harry, not quite knowing where that came from he quickly added “I am sorry I don’t know where that came from”
“Do not trouble yourself Harry, I am half vela it is something natural” she said smiling under need the hood of her robes.
Harry turned beet read and looked to the floor, at that moment Lord Death took him from her presence and walked him down the stairs to a round table with a six chairs all around it, Lord Death graved hold of his shoulder after all the other Council members were sited, as each of them sat he noticed that fires the same color as the ones in their sleeves ignited behind them, then he asked Lord Death “What will happen to the basin behind the place I will be sitting in front off?”
“Well Harry sit and find out for your self” said Lord Death motioning for the place between Lord Gust and Lady Flame, and to Harry’s dismay, his expression must have been easy to read, because Lady Flame said “I wont bite you Harry, I promise” to which the other Councilors as well as her laughed, he nervously went to sit beside her.
As he was sitting down beside her there was a blinding flash of flames behind hi, to which he jumped and almost sat in her lap, when he looked up he saw that at the flames were of all the other colors and were at least six feet taller than any other flames of the Council members, he sat down without saying anything and waited for dinner to be served.
As dinner was served and small talk made among the Council members Lady Flame asked Harry to whom she had taken a liking “Do you like Quidditch Harry?”
“Oh yes my Lady” said Harry looking at her “I actually play seeker for my house team”
“Oh really” she said smiling at him “Well I myself played Quidditch for the Holyhead Harpies, seeker as well, until I retired to become a member of the Council”
The Quidditch talk took them all for the rest of the dinner by which Harry felt comfortable talking to Lady Flame as well as any other member of the Council.
When it was almost four in the morning, he looked very sleepy so Lord Death took it upon himself to show him the way to the place that were going to be his quarters for the next five weeks at least.
When they finished the Climb up the stirs to the sixth floor they walked towards the south corridor and when he arrived Lord Death said “This is you personal quarters, all of this corridor, the door to the far right is an indoor garden for you to practice meditation which Lord Gust will teach you tomorrow, the Door next to it is your personal Library, and this is your room and bathroom”
He opened the door to the room and Harry was astonished to see it, the room was at least the size of the common room of Griffindor house back at Hogwarts however on one end of the room was a comfortable looking king size four poster bed, in the wall opposite the was a very large and carved white marble hearth, which was lit and on along the walls on the opposite side of the door, bookcases filled with rear and ancient looking volumes all lined in perfect order from subject to year.
However in front of the wall there was a desk and next to the desk was a golden perch with a black phoenix.
The bird flew towards him and sat on his shoulder making an affectionate sound, Lord Death said “Ah, and this is Shadow, he will be your most trusted friend and allay, believe me I know”
“Hello Shadow” said Harry petting the beautiful black bird.
“Well, rest Harry Tomorrow will be a very Long day and you will need you strength” With that Lord Death walked back to the door where he stopped and said to Harry “that door over there” and he pointed to the door, “is your ward drove and bathroom, your clothes have been hanged and by our house elf staff” with that he left and closed the door behind him.
Harry walked towards his wardrobe, he took out his pajamas, changed and went to bed, and as soon as his head hit the pillow he was asleep.
He didn’t know how long he had been asleep, but when he woke up he saw that it was around noon, he got up and went to take a quick shower before Lord Gust came to him. After the shower he opened his wardrobe and saw to his amazement that at there were at least six set of black robes without any color stripes on the sleeves, he graved one of them and put it, he walked to his room and sat down on his bed, he grabbed parchment, ink and quill, and wrote a letter to his financial advisor and his solicitor.
To his financial advisor he wrote:
How are things in the bank? How is business doing?
I write to you because I am interested on being a Quidditch team, tow in fact, please arrange everything and have them discus legal maters with my solicitor Miss Chang.
I am mostly interested in two teams the Chudley Cannons and the Holyhead Harpies, however if these tow teams are not up to a change in management then see to other alternatives, please send word as soon as possible.
I am willing to pay up to Twenty five million galleons for them or a sum you consider well enough for them. When the purchase is done please note that I would like the press release of the purchase to be on tow different days, one on Monday and one on Tuesday.
Hope that you are well
Your business partner Harry James Potter
When he was done he gave the letter to shadow and the said “Please take this to Griphook as soon as possible, and don’t worry, I am not expecting a quick response”
With that the black phoenix disappeared in a ball of flames.
At that moment there was a knock on the door, and after a few moments Lord Gust came in “Well Harry today we will be using your indoor garden to train and I will teach you how to meditate and see if we can start some basic wand less magic”
With that they left his room and walked to the inner garden that was a few doors to his right. When he entered he was dumbstruck by the beauty of is, there was a small river, and a small few tall oaks, and there were rocks, grass and flowers everywhere.
“What you have to do Harry is sit down and relax” said Lord Gust sitting down on the floor in a lotus position and signaling for Harry to sit in front of him, when he was sitting he continued “Please what you have to do is to concentrate on your breading, it doesn’t matter if you there are thoughts entering your mind, just don’t pay them any attention, and concentrate on deep breaths, and relaxing”
He took a deep breath and with that they started his training to become the High Councilor.
In another part of Europe, the international Quidditch camp was starting at the same time that Harry was starting his training.
The Hogwarts team, integrated by Ron as Kipper, Cho as seeker, Ginny, Katie, and Zechariahs Smith as chasers and Vincent Crabe and Gregory Goyle as Beaters, where standing with at least another tow hundred different players form other wizarding schools across Europe, of course they were one of the favorite teams along with Beauxbatons and Durmstrang.
There was an air of excitement, since they were asked to draw which were going to be their first opponents to face the coming Sunday, they all wanted to face an easy school, since they really didn’t want to go packing the first week, and all of them were really looking forward to reach the final, where their was a rumor going on that team owners along with scouts would be watching the game.
At that moment, a door opened and in came seven people, some where retired and others current professional Quidditch players.
The youngest of them called for order and then began the Introductions, he said “Welcome to the first ever international Quidditch training Camp” he stopped as their was a roar form everyone present, when the crowd became quite he continued “I am Oliver Wood, kipper for Puddlemere United, I will be training the kippers form all the schools” there was a round of applause for him, then he went on “Then for our beaters, we are pleased to inform you that two of the best and ruthless beaters in Quidditch history have agreed to come and train, please give round of applause to both Mr. Kevin and Karl Broadmoor who played for the Falmouth Falcons from 1958 to 1969” there was a loud roar form everyone, but mostly beaters “Then for our chasers we have the honor to have hear Miss Catriona McCormack, from pride of Portree, Rudolf Brand from the Harriers and finally Daren O’Hare inventor of the Hawkshead Attacking Formation” there was an even louder roar form everyone in the hall, since most had at one point used the famous formation “and last but not least we have the seekers have the honor of this year being trained by non other than Josef Wronski, creator of the very hard to perform, very effective Wronski faint” there was an even grater uproar from the crowd and with that the introductions were given.
Back amongst the Hogwarts Quidditch team Cho said to Ron “I’m going to write to Harry the moment I get out of here, he won’t believe my luck”
“What is going between you and Harry?” asked Ron “I thought you broke it up last year?”
“No, I wrote him to tell him that I steel loved him, and he said the same, so we are back together” said Cho happily.
“That’s good” said Ron looking away from her.
After that was done, they turned around and left for their dormitories to settle in.
At the headquarters of the Order of the Phoenix, the Malfoys and the Parkinsons were sitting at the kitchen table; they had been waiting for almost tow hours, making small talk with Remus and Tonks, while Dumbledore arrived.
Finally, after two hours of waiting, Dumbledore came through the kitchen door, looking rather pleased with him self; nobody asked why he looked so pleased, so he decided to tell them.
“I have received word from Lord Death” he said happily looking around to the ones gathered in front of him “when Harry sat in the chair, at the Hall Reconciliation, the flames where almost three times what the flames of Voldemort where”
“What does that mean Albus?” asked Lupin in awe at the power that seemed to reside in Harry.
“Well, for starters, that he is indeed the one to become High Councilor, and the second, is that his raw magical power is at least a third of the power both myself and Voldemort hold together, making him the most powerful wizard ever to walk the earth”
“When will we be able to meet with him?” asked Narcisa Malfoy timidly from the corner where she sat next to Draco.
“That in itself is quite an issue” explained Dumbledore smiling at Narcisa “We cannot set foot on the Hall of Reconciliation until he sends for us, or the council put in a good word for us”
“So we are basically going to wait here until he decides that he will see us?” asked Anastasia Parkinson with apprehension.
“No, he will receive a notice from me explaining the situation and requesting an audience in your behalf” said Dumbledore “Then you will explain your case to him and the council will advise him on what to do, but ultimately it is his decision as High Councilor”
“And if he refuses to protect us?” asked Draco “Lets be real professor, we have hated each other since the first year, what makes you think that he would protect my mother, and my girlfriend, it would be the same as if he was going to go and join the Dark Lord after all he has done to him.” explained Draco looking at his feet, feeling all the hope living the room and him.
“A Mr. Malfoy, but you fail to notice that you have turned sides, you are his allies now, you must ask for forgiveness of the things you have done to him, and I promise that Remus, Tonks and I will put a good word for you to the High Councilor when we meet him”
“Will we be able to leave the house?” asked Pansy hopefully.
“Not until we talk to him, because with his blessing, we will try to take you to the Hall of Reconciliation, where you will stay with him, under his protection, but until then you can leave the house if you are guarded by me or by Remus, and I will suggest to quite with the discriminatory terms towards Miss Granger and people with Mix Blood, if you get my meaning”
“Will do Professor, we will wait for his answer and we will do as you ask, but please do not let us fall to the Dark Lord” pleaded Narcisa.
“Do not worry, Narcisa he will understand, he will receive you, I promise” assured Dumbledore, he got up from his chair and then added to Remus “Show them to their rooms they are our guests after all”
“Yes Headmaster” with that Dumbledore left number Twelve Grimauld Place, to right a letter to the most powerful wizard that ever lived.
