Teddy finally emerged from the fireplace, and into the familiar home of Headmistress McGonagall's office. James, Fred, Lily, Albus, Rose, and Hugo slowly stepped out after him. However, they were not greeted by McGonagall's warm welcome, but rather someone they had never met before, but only heard of.
"Hello children. What brings you here to my office today?" questioned an old man, with a long, white silvery beard, and a twinkle in his peaceful eyes. Teddy immediately recognized this man as Albus Dumbledore, and felt a sigh of relief being in the presence of someone who wouldn't hurt him. The others, however, were looking rather confused.
"Hi. My name's Lily." Lily announced to the man she had never met.
"Hello Lily. Where are you from, little one?"
Suddenly, everything clicked in Teddy's mind. I've never met Albus Dumbledore. Why? No duh, cuz he's dead. ... .. . HOLD ON A SEC! If he's dead, then how can he be real? He can't be real! He's a ghost then. Teddy cautiously reached out and slowly approached Professor Dumbledore. He gently poked him, screamed and jumped back in shock when he was solid. AHH! WHAT! If I can touch him, does that mean I'm dead? But why am I dead at Hogwarts? That's an odd place for the afterlife. And why is everyone else here too? Hmm.. With the same look of fear, I gently poked myself, and screamed and jumped again, finding myself to be solid. I looked around, and every person in the room, including Lily, who can be rather crazy at times, were all staring at me like I was a madman. Nope, don't think so, I'm definitely not mad. I hope.
I hope I can trust him.. "Professor Dumbledore?" I prompted.
"Yes, Mr. ...?"
"You can call me Teddy, sir."
"What is today's date?"
That's an odd question, Professor Dumbledore thought. "It's September 1st, 1995." *Author's Note: This is Harry Potter's 5th year* Everyone gasped, and looked at Teddy for an explanation.
"Professor Dumbledore, we come from the future." Dumbledore was very confused, but his face showed no sign of this. Teddy continued, "We missed our Hogwarts train on September 1st, 2020, so our parents had us Floo here instead. I think something from James's bag," he pointed at James, "that wasn't meant to be used with Floo powder, caused us all to go 23 years in the past."
"Very well, then. I must ask some sort of proof you are from the future, though I doubt you mean any harm. Your full names, and parents will do."
"My name is Teddy Remus Lupin, and I'm 22 years old, son of Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks. This is James Sirius Potter, who is a fifth year, Albus Severus Potter, fourth year, and Lily Luna Potter, second year. They are the sons and daughter of Harry Potter and Ginerva Weasley." Professor Dumbledore's eyes twinkled brilliantly knowing both Harry and Ginny were together, and they had named their son after him. Teddy continued, "This is Rose and Hugo Weasley, who are fifth and third years respectively, and the children of Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger." Albus's couldn't suppress a grin from sliding across his face. "This is Fred Weasley the Second, son of George Weasley and Angelina Johnson, who will be a fifth year as well. We are all Gryffindors, except for Lily, who was supposed to be sorted this year."
"Welcome to Hogwarts 1995 then everyone. The other students have not arrived yet, and probably are still on the train. We will have all of you at the Hogwarts Platform, and come as if you were in your own time. However, we will need to create new names." Professor Dumbledore pointed at James, Lily, and Albus. "You may keep your first names, but your last name will be Patson," while Hugo, and Rose, "can be Rose, Fred, and Hugo Pruitt. You are transfer students from a small school in Murrieta, from the states. Teddy, would you horribly mind teaching Defense this year? I have yet to find a suitable candidate," Dumbledore asked.
"Of course, Professor, it would be an honor." Albus smiled appreciatively, and the other children were excited their almost-brother would be teaching them.
"You will be known as Professor Levine. This will all be announced during the Welcome Back Feast. Now off you go to the platform!" With that, Professor Dumbledore ushered them off to where the train was just pulling in, and students were emerging from the now open doors.
"FIRST YEARS! FIRST YEARS! RIGHT THIS WAY!" A familiar voice of a half-giant bellowed through the station, and Teddy gently nudged Lily in his direction, who loved to watch the boats sail across the lake.
"Look Teddy! Bye Lily, James, Rose, Hugo, Fred, Al!" She pointed excitingly from the boats, which were starting to move on their own. In her delight, she screamed and watched eagerly as the first years waited for their first glimpses of Hogwarts, from the outside at least.
*Hello Readers! Thanks again to yukikiralacus for an awesome review! I will be updating soon, probably before the end of today. Yeah I update fast on weekends lol! BTW I'm not a huge fan of Umbridge, and Teddy would be too old to be at Hogwarts, so I conveniently swapped their places! Hope you guys like this story, and please continue to update, as this is my first fanfic!*
*Also, Thanks Dimcairien for her review, correcting me on the time frame issues. There are some few minor fixes here and there, and I really appreciate Dimcairien for helping me sort that out! Thanks again!*
