Lily smiled as she passed by James at the Gryffindor table, she was well aware of the eyes resting on her, totally used to it by now, after all, it was her family that destroyed the greatest evil ever. The sorting, honestly she knew she'd be in Gryffindor, it was somewhat of a family tradition, for everyone but Melanie and Draco's kids, after all, Draco was the Slytherin Prince.
Finally before her appeared Hermione, both the Transfiguration teacher and the Deputy Head, she carried a stool, and started to call out a list of names, Lily looked at the other teachers while she waited, Severus was sitting in the centre, he was now the Headmaster, Ethan was next to him, he was the Head of Gryffindor, and muggle studies teacher, Draco was near him, he taught Potions and was head of Slytherin, Melanie was beside Draco, she taught Charms, And Emma who was the school nurse.
You may think it odd that so many of the family worked at Hogwarts, but when the Potter family rebuilt Hogwarts to its full glory, they had to fill the different positions quickly, as most of the old teachers were dead. And so they took the places themselves, in the subjects they were best at, Hermione was given place as deputy Head after proving herself by working for Sirius. Melanie had the best Charms marks the school had ever seen. Ethan had lived as a muggle, with a muggle wife. Draco had already filled a potion creator’s position for over three years. As for Emma, she was a fully trained Healer, and had James Potter (Sr) as a brother; she was used to all sorts of things.
“Potter, Lily,” Hermione called, smiling down at her niece.
Lily stepped up and sat on the stool, and had the hat placed on her head. It took a total of three seconds before the hat bellowed Gryffindor. Beaming Lily ran down to the place next to her brother reserved for her.
They waited while everyone else got sorted until the Weasleys.
“Weasley, Luke.” Hermione called. Luke smiled at Hermione as he walked up to the stool and sat down, seeming not that bothered by the talking hat.
“Gryffindor!” The hat yelled and Luke came down and sat next to Lily, grinning.
“Weasley, Scarlett.” Hermione called, there were a few wolf whistles, and one boy from Hufflepuff shouted 'Scarlett woman!' but he was silenced by a glare from Hermione.
“Hmm.” The hat didn't seem so sure of where to place Scarlett, and it was a few minutes before it came to a decision. “Ravenclaw!” At the Ravenclaw table Narcissa and Quinton cheered loudly, their older brother Theo Malfoy was there too, he was a third year, with the same facial features as his younger siblings, the same silvery eyes, however instead of shocking blonde hair, Theo had the darkest black hair.
As the dinner appeared, a fourth year Hufflepuff girl got up and walked over to where Lily, James and Luke were sitting. She sat down beside Lily and wound her arms over the younger girl’s shoulders.
“I am so happy you made it to Gryffindor!” The girl said happily, her sapphire blue eyes shone brightly in the golden light produced by the candles hovering above them, and her pale skin made it seem as if she were glowing. Of course this was Marilyn Weasley, one of the most stunning girls in the school.
“Thanks Mari,” Lily replied beaming at her cousin.
“Keep your eye on this one Luke, all the boys will want a piece of her,” Marilyn said with a wink and laugh at Luke Weasley, a direct relative of hers. The boy pretended to throw up. Girls still had cooties.
Marilyn sat with them through out dinner, chatting away happily, Marilyn was lovely like that, she was the most beautiful thing to have graced the earth and yet it never got to her head.
When it came time for the leftovers to go away Severus stood up and looked around at the students.
“Would Mr Potter, and Miss Davies, the Head Boy and Girl please meet me at my office. Thank you. Goodnight everyone,” And then he allowed everyone to file from the room.
Yasmin Vane caught up with Lily and smiled.
“I think we’re sharing a dorm,” She said, and it was true, they were sharing a dorm. When they reached the dorm it was to find two other girls were there already.
“HI, I’m Effie Davidson,” The blonde haired girl said beaming at Lily and Yasmin. The other girl smiled weakly but didn’t say anything. “That’s Chloe Fitzroy,” Effie said pointing towards the quiet brunette.
“I’m Lily Potter, this is Yasmin Vane,” Lily said in introduction, they would have probably talked more if it weren’t for how exhausted they were.
“Morning sweetie,” Marilyn said as Lily sat beside her looking bleary eyed. “Three slices of bacon, two sausages, an egg, two slices of toast, and pumpkin juice,” Marilyn said as she loaded food on to her cousin’s plate. As soon as the food was before Lily she devoured it, making Marilyn laugh hysterically.
“I was so hungry,” Lily informed Marilyn as she downed her pumpkin juice.
“I could tell,” Marilyn said. As she did another girl came and sat with them it was Blaine, she smiled at her friends, she after all wasn’t at all related to any of them.
“I feared for the damn plate,” Blaine said with a laugh as she looked pointedly at Lily, who smiled innocently. As students started to walk into the great hall Lily found that there were more and more people joining them, Lorie Belby, Scarlett Weasley, Teddy Weasley, Cole Zeller, and James Potter, even Marie Davis joined them this morning.
And that is what Severus wanted. In all his years working at the school he had seen Gryffindors and Slytherins shun each other, Ravenclaws and Hufflepuffs belittle and tease each other. Now as he sat at his place all he saw was people sitting at random tables. During the Start of year feast the students sit at the correct tables, but then after that, they just sit wherever their friends are, there is no Slytherin Table, no Gryffindor Table, no Ravenclaw Table, no Hufflepuff Table, just groups of friends.
