"Did you find out who was shouting?" Ron asked drowsily.
"Oh, yeah it was these new students that slept down there." Harry answered while pulling his robes over his head.
"Where are you going" asked Ron, yawning widely.
"The new students asked me to show them Dumbledore's office, and I said I would..." Harry said, now tying his shoelaces. "Do you want to come?" Harry asked.
"I might as well. I'm already awake."
Five minutes later, the two fourth years walked into the common room to find the Marauders sitting on the couches, all their things packed away.They abruptly stopped talking when they seen Harry and Ron.
"Guys, this is my friend Ron Weasley." Harry said. "Ron, this is Pierce Reid, Alex Hunter, Logan Griffen and Joe Beacon. There starting in sixth year." They all said hi to each other and shook hands.
"Should we go now?"Harry said. Everyone nodded and Harry and Ron lead from the common room.
"So, Harry, can you tell us anything about the school, any people to look out for?"asked Sirius.
"Oh, most of the teachers are okay, well McGonagall is a bit strict but she's fair to all the students. Who you should really look out for is Snape"said Harry.
Snape?! The marauders thought in surprise and outrage. What kind of nut job would let that freak teach?! Thought James.
"What does this Snape guy teach?" Asked James.
"He teaches potions, and he's head of Slytherin too. Everyone who's not in Slytherin hates him." Explained Harry.
"Why's he bad. What does he do?"
"He's always favouring his own house and he never misses a chance to take points off Gryffindor. Ron, remember the time he took points off Hermione for helping Neville?" asked Harry.
"Yeah, that was completely unfair." Ron replied.
"Wow, Snape does sound like someone to look out for. But who are Hermione and Neville?" Remus was trying to find out as much as possible so they wouldn't be too lost.
"Hermione Granger, she's our best friend, and Neville Longbottom is our room mate."
"Oh... is there anyone else we should look out for?"
"Well, just the Slytherins really... there all pretty bad." said Ron.
"Okay, so look out for the Slytherins, got it... so, what about quidditch? Who's good?"
"Well, Gryffindor won the cup last year , and should have won it for the past three years, because they had the best seeker in the history of forever." said Ron. Harry was bright red from embarrassment at this point.
"Who was the seeker?" asked James. He would have liked to join the Quidditch team in this time, but he wouldn't as they would be leaving soon.
"Harry, he's the youngest person on a Hogwarts Quidditch team in a century"
"Wow, you must be good, Harry. When did you join?" James was so happy his son played Quidditch well, like him.
"I joined in the first week of my first year."Harry answered, still red in the face from all the attention.
"Wow, you must be really good, first years never make the house team. You look like the right build for a seeker."
"Thanks, Alex" By this time they had made it to the stone gargoyle that guards the entrance to Dumbledore's office.
"Wait how are we supposed to get in, we don't know the password." Ron asked Harry.
"Well, Dumbledore's passwords are always sweet related , so start guessing?" Harry suggested.
"Right, okay, chocolate frogs? Droobles Best Blowing Gum? Bertie Bott's Every Flavoured Beans? Liquorice wands? ha ha I got it! The gargoyle jumped aside to reveal a spiral staircase very familiar to the Marauders. They climbed the stairs and knocked on the door, and they heard a voice telling them to enter. They opened the door and Albus Dumbledore stood before them, looking much the same as ever
"Ah, hello boys, I was wondering when I would see you."
The Marauders stood shocked, asking themselves if Dumbledore could possibly know that they were from the past.
"Mr. Potter, Mr. Weasley, thank you for bringing our new students here, you may go get ready for your first day of classes." Dumbledore said.
"Okay, professor. See you later guys" they left, closing the door behind them. There was an awkward silence in the room until it was eventually broken by James.
"Professor, we're from-"he started.
"The past, yes I know, James" Dumbledore interrupted, a twinkle in his eye.
"How do you know sir?" asked Sirius.
"Well, Mr. Black, I happen to posses a good memory. Then again, I think anyone would remember the day four students appeared out of no-where and knocked you to the ground."
"How could we have done that, Sirius read that time freezes when you use that spell?" Remus said, entering the conversation.
"I believe he misread that sentence. When you use that spell, time does freeze, but only for twenty-four hours. You four were gone for the whole school year." Dumledore explained.
"Wow, the whole year? Are you going to tell us to go back now?" asked Peter
"No, because if I did it would mess up the time-lines, so you will have to stay here until the time that you are supposed to return."Said Dumbledore. The marauders noticed the cold look Dumbedore seemed to be giving Peter, but shook it off.
"So, you lot will be joining the sixth year Gryffindores. Please see Professor McGonagall for your time tables, and I will have the house elves put four extra beds in the sixth year dormitory. You will be sharing that room with Fred and George Weasley and Lee Jordan."
"Is McGonagall still the our head of house?"
"Professor McGonagall, and yes she is. I also understand that in your time you weren't exactly friends with Severus Snape, but in this time he will be your teacher, so you will show him, and any other teachers, respect. Okay, off you go, down to the Great Hall." Dumbledore told them. When they were outside the gargoyle James said
"Well, he's still as crazy as ever."
