1 Prologue

The man swore under his breath as his face contorted.  His round face was elongating and his black hair lightened to a brownish shade.  He stumbled around and kicked off his shoes as his feet grew too large for them.

"I do have some interesting news about the Hogwarts staff."

    "What is it?"  John asked eagerly,  "Is Slughorn finally retiring for good?"

    "No,"  Albus laughed,  "I don't think that will ever happen."
   
    "Then what is it?"  Matt asked.

3 Microwaved Eggs

When the kitchen came into view, Albus saw John and Kaden rummaging around in the refrigerator.

    "We could combine this with that,"  Kaden was saying.

    "That is disgusting,"  John commented,  "But brilliant."

    John and Kaden emerged from the refrigerator carrying various containers.  They set them down on the counter and then turned around.

4 Tipping the Boats

The entire Entrance Hall was covered in water by the time Albus and his friends entered the castle.  Albus was sure Filch would have a hippogriff when he saw it.  Albus led his friends to the familiar Gryffindor table and sat down, eager for the feast to start.

5 Linda Morales

"Quiet down,"  Kendrick said,  "There was a reason why I enacted that last year.  More than just school unity, that is.  I wanted the school to become more united because of an event that is taking place this year.  An event that will put us into competition with other magical schools-"

6 Flobberworms and Boggarts

"I wish your dad was still teaching,"  Matt sighed.

    "Yeah,"  John agreed,  "The new teacher looks like the kind of bloke who gives a lot of homework."

    "You really ought to just keep an open mind,"  Rose commented as they left the Great Hall.

    "Easy for you to say,"  John muttered,  "You're freakishly smart."

7 Nightmare

"You should do that Divination homework,"  Amanda said,  "You know, the one where we predict what happens to us next Wednesday."

    "Already did it,"  John announced.

    Albus, Matt, and Amanda all stared in shock at John.  John never ever did homework early.  He was always the one finishing the last lines of an essay as the teacher took attendance.

8 The Incident With the Giant Squid

   "I take it you've heard about John and Kaden's incident with the squid?"  Albus asked.

    "Bits and pieces,"  Rose muttered without looking up.

    Albus and Matt launched into the entire story and Amanda was in stitches by the time they finished. 

    "Those two are going to be expelled if they're not careful,"  Rose said as she frantically scribbled something onto a roll of parchment.

9 The Hogwarts Quidditch Team

Albus stared at Rose.  He had never seen her like this.  Usually Rose was rational.  "Rose, I'm serious.  Take a break."

    "No,"  Rose said adamantly.

3244 13
10 Threats

"And,"  John continued,  "Costumes are encouraged."

    "Costumes?"  Albus asked, finally looking up.

    "Yeah, costumes,"  John grinned,  "We get to dress up!  This is going to be brilliant!"

11 Halloween Costumes

    "The players from Puddlemere United?"  John suggested after a few minutes.  "You know, if Rose, Amanda, and Linda joined us, we'd have enough people to be the entire team."

    "Why not the Cannons?"  Matt asked.

    "Because they're awful,"  John groaned.

12 Dueling and Fighting

"What do you think Balladanis did before he taught here?"  Kaden mused late the next day.
   
    "Dunno,"  Albus shrugged.

    "I think he was an Auror,"  John said,  "I mean, he obviously hates the dark arts."

    "No,"  Albus shook his head,  "My dad would have mentioned that."

4253 13
13 Silence

"Well, I can't blame Matt for not wanting her in there,"  John lowered his voice even more,  "He always sleeps there before the you know what.  He's not going to want her to know about it."

    "I can't blame him either,"  Albus agreed.

    "You do know what this means, right?"  John asked.

    "What?"

    "We're going to have to take our own notes in class now,"  John groaned.

14 Hogsmeade

Albus grinned.  That was one part about the Hogsmeade trip that Albus was still thoroughly excited about.  He had the new map in his cloak pocket, all ready to go. 

    "We can see who likes to go to the Hog's Head,"  John grinned mischievously.

    "Hey, Amy used to go there,"  Matt said.

"We're surrounded by your dad,"  John laughed as another miniature Harry Potter walked by.

    "This is just weird,"  Albus muttered, shaking his head.

    "It's kind of funny,"  John laughed even harder.

16 The First Match

"Dementors don't even guard Azkaban anymore, so I don't see why they would get sent here,"  John said as he stopped his firecrab from escaping.

    "I wonder where they went,"  Albus pondered,  "I've never seen one."

    "Me neither,"  John shook his head,  "But that's a good point.  What did happen to them all?"

3253 14
17 The Anamatek

"Just talk to them, Rose,"  Amanda said,  "To be honest, I'm sick of you ignoring them."

    Rose looked a bit taken aback.  "All right, fine."  She shoved her books into her bag a bit harder than necessary and stood up.

"Potter, Malfoy!"  Balldanis shouted,  "Please see me before you leave."

    "Looks like you're getting extra help, too,"  John laughed,  "Welcome to the club."

    "Somehow I doubt that,"  Matt replied,  "Albus was the only one to cause that anamatek to fly halfway across the room today.  Well, besides Malfoy."

4101 11
19 The Unbeatable Seeker

"That's enough for tonight,"  Balladanis said as he eyed Albus.  Albus had a feeling that he looked absolutely exhausted.

    "Looks like I'm the better dueler,"  Malfoy said once they were out of the room.

    "That's not what it meant,"  Albus muttered,  "We didn't even duel each other.  I could beat you in a real duel."

4140 12
20 The Investigation

“What are the Australian and American kids doing for Christmas?”  Kaden asked.

    “Dunno,”  Albus shrugged.

    “Some of them are going home, but most are just staying at Hogwarts.  Linda's staying,”  Rose told them.

3528 15
21 A Christmas Blizzard

“Yes!”  Xenophilius Lovegood shouted back.  Arthur stood aside as the man walked in and then shut the door behind him.  “Quite the storm we're having!  Just thought I'd stop by and see if this place was still standing.”

    “Quite the storm, yes,”  Arthur agreed,  “I heard the Muggles lost electricity. Fascinating.  I wonder what they do without it.  But yes, the house is still standing.”

2943 11
22 The Party

“Looks like it's going to be a fun night,”  Albus said sarcastically.

    “Oh, it will be,”  Matt grinned,  “When I was really little, we went to parties like this a few times a month.  You make your own fun.”

    “Like what?”  Albus asked.

3821 9
23 All in Good Time

“I didn't think it would be this bad,”  John groaned,  “There is no way anyone could see anything in a crystal ball.”

    “Palmistry was better,”  Amanda said,  “And Trelawney makes the whole thing worse.”

    “Trelawney could make Defense bad,”  Albus replied.

3365 11
24 Darker Times

“All three of you are so cheery today,”  Kaden said,  “So many complaints.”

    “Can you blame us?”  Albus muttered.

    “No, not really,”  Kaden shrugged.

3805 13
25 The Memory

“Quite difficult, I'd expect,”  Balladanis replied,  “Come with me, all of you.”

    Albus groaned inwardly as he followed Balladanis down the street.  They had gone all year without Kaden getting them into trouble, but Albus should have known better than to think they could go the whole year.

3107 18
26 The Presuler

“Balladanis told us what he did before he started teaching at Hogwarts,” Albus said quietly.

    “And you neglected to tell us until now?”  John gaped,  “I've been wanting to know for the entire year!”

    “I know, John,”  Albus snapped,  “But it's not anything what you'd think.”

3428 15
27 The Werewolf Lesson

“I still don't particularly want to go to class tomorrow,”  Matt said,  “Whether I've finished the essay or not.”

    “You're going to finish it,”  Rose told him,  “You've got two inches left.”

    “Finished,”  Albus announced.

    “Excellent,”  John said as he grabbed Albus's essay,  “I'll copy bits of yours.”

3722 12
28 Old Acquaintances

“Kendrick wants to see you,”  Albus said,  “He's got Malfoy up in his study. He wants to talk to all of us.  Me, John, Rose, Amanda, and Kaden.”

    “I don't want to go up there,”  Matt said,  “I never want to see Malfoy again.  I just want to stay here.  Merlin, my head is killing me.”

3282 14
29 Increasing Tension


    “I wish he'd just let us become Animagi,”  John muttered.

    “John, I honestly don't think you could become an Animagus,”  Rose replied, “You'd wind up with a permanent tail affixed to your arse.”

    “That wouldn't be that bad,”  John grinned,  “Always thought it would be cool to have a tail.”

3149 16
30 Placing Bets

“Georgia, James, Albus!”  Fred greeted them,  “Care to place a bet?”

    “What are you taking bets about?”  Georgia asked tiredly,  “And if you keep betting on stuff, your mum is bound to find out.”

    “She won't care,”  Fred shrugged.  He was probably right.  Albus's Aunt Alicia was the least strict out of all of his aunts.  She'd probably place a bet with Fred.

3273 15
31 Balladanis's Fate

“He's going to be sacked,”  Matt said adamantly and then turned to John, “You're not going to his extra help session tonight, are you?”

    “Not if I was paid twenty Galleons,”  John replied,  “Well, ok, maybe if I was paid twenty Galleons, but not for less than ten.  What about you, Albus?  Going to go to your dueling lesson?”

3280 17
32 The Breakout

“That's the reason for you waking me up?”  Albus groaned,  “Why can't Rose help you?”

    “She's a bit sore with me right now,”  John muttered.

    “What did you do?”  Albus asked.

    “I may or may not have accidentally set fire to her Potions notes last night,”  John said.

3287 14
33 In Dervish and Banges

“Albus,”  John said as they got up from the table,  “I've got a few pairs of omnioculars in my trunk.  I want to see it up close when Linda catches that Snitch.”

    “Let's go get them, then,”  Albus replied.

    Rose rolled her eyes.  “Meet us down at the pitch.”  She and Amanda turned towards the door as the boys ran up the grand staircase.

    “Why didn't you just bring them to breakfast?”  Matt asked.

3534 23
34 Arguing

“The boys have just been to see me at the Ministry,”  Walter said as soon as he'd stopped.

    “Wait, what?”  Harry asked,  “You mean Albus and Matt?”

    “Yes, and the other two as well,”  Walter said quickly,  “You've heard of Ralph Lubar, the Head of the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures in Australia?”

3232 14
35 Patronuses and Stones

A cold wind blew over them and Albus shivered.  It was the kind of cold that chilled him to the bone.  Hoping that it wasn't going to rain, or snow (wasn't it winter in Australia?), he looked to the sky.  There were no clouds, but what Albus saw was much worse than clouds.

3751 15
36 The Return

“Better they hex each other than us, right?”  John muttered.

    “Good point,”  Albus replied.

    “Can we please just get back to bringing back Voldemort?”  Washburn drawled loudly,  “I was under the impression that that's what we were here for, not to insult each other's mothers.”

3387 18
37 The Outcome of the Match

Albus had never seen anyone glare at anyone else with such hatred and loathing as Matt's dad glared at Lubar.  And that included when his Uncle Ron talked about the Malfoys, or his mum when somebody mentioned Vernon and Petunia Dursley.

3382 22
38 Silver Lining

“We've got the World Cup to look forward to, though,”  Albus smiled.

    “Oh, yeah!”  John grinned,  “Owl me as soon as you find out when we're leaving for it.”

    “Definitely,”  Albus said,  “Your sister's going, too.  Lily told me she'd invited her.  Hugo's not really happy about that.”
