I am not afraid to keep on living,
I am not afraid to walk this world alone

Nothing you can say can stop me going home.

  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

Her long black hair with purple streaks was tied up as usual in an elegant bun with a few strands of her hair hanging down. She was heading towards number 12 Grimmauld place. She wore ripped jeans pants and a corset top hidden by a black hoodie. The countless chokers on her neck shined beneath the sun. She was holding nothing but her messenger bag as she knocked on the door.


“Who is it?” said a kind vice at the other end of the door.


“Ria Roth” She said while waiting patiently at the door.




“Winking Warts” She said while cringing at the stupidity of the password.


“Come on in,” said the kind voice, which was revealed to be Ms. Weasley as Ria entered the house.


“Looks like it hasn’t changed much since I’ve been here.”


“Ah but it has more guests and we cleaned it up to look more cozy.” Said Ms.Weasley as she went to hug her. “ How have you been my dear when you didn’t show up for the family reunion we got scared.”


“With everything that’s happened I don’t know how I showed up to any family reunion” Ria replied as she sat down at the kitchen table.


“I’m so sorry if there is anyway I can help you just ask” said Ms.Weasley.


“That goes for all of us” Said Remus Lupin as he joined in to the conversation.


“Remus” Ria exclaimed as she ran up to him and gave him a hug.


“It’s nice to see you to” he replied amused as he hugged back. “Now let me introduce you to everyone in the order.”




“So do you have any idea who our ‘surprise’ guest is?” Ron said as he moved his chess piece.


“Nope and stop asking I’m getting a headache” Replied Hermione as she tried to counter his move.


“Has Harry moved yet?” Ron asked.


“Nope” Hermione replied with sadness as she stared at the door leading to the bathroom.



He knew he should be out their playing with everyone else, but he couldn’t find the heart to. Sirius was gone and he couldn’t help but blame himself, for not only Sirius’s death but also everyone else’s death, like Cedric Diggory and his parents. The question ‘What If’ has been hanging in his head all day as he sat on the toilet reliving their deaths again and again. What if I go there in time? What if I did take occlumencylessons seriously? What if I didn’t tell Cedric to grab the cup too? It’s not that he didn’t blame himself for their deaths before; it’s just that Sirius’s death pushed his guilt for everyone even further.


Bang Bang


“Harry our guest has arrived get out of the washroom and get downstairs” he heard Hermione say through the door.

He got up and opened the door; his faces emotionless as he brushed pass Hermione and Ron to get downstairs.


Both Hermione and Ron were trailing after him as he came downstairs and came to a sudden halt.

There everyone in the order was chatting with a girl who looked about his age as if she was an adult as well, but as soon as he got into the room everything silenced. Harry sat down just a little ticked of by their sudden silence. Hermione sat down on one side of him, as Ron caught sight of the girl in black, his eyes lit up as he screamed her name and ran towards her.


“RIA” He screamed as he picked her up by her waist and span her around.


“RONNY I MISS YOU TOO BUT PUT ME DOWN!!” she said as he put her down and she swayed for a bit.

From there Harry could really see her face, she had beautiful hair that was hidden in a bun and gorgeous, but unusual purple eyes that showed happiness but still a hint of concealed sadness. Her outfit was strange with the ripped jeans, corset and black hoodie with black converse, defiantly not a style he has seen a lot in the wizard world. She wasn’t incredibly fat nor was she skinny. Her skin was pale almost as if she had never seen sun a day in her life; she had a couple of piercing on both ears but none on her face.


He had no more time to think about her looks as Ron lead her over to the couch to introduce her.


“Harry, Hermione this is Ria, she is my cousin, adopted cousin.” He said as she examined the two carefully.

From what she could see Hermione looked like a kind-hearted person with bushy brown hair. She looked like a stern type of person but always there to help a friend in need.

Then she looked at Harry, he was a black haired boy, not to muscular but he defiantly played some sort of sport. He had beautiful green eyes wasn’t too tall, they both seemed to be the same age as her.

“Pleasure to meet you” she said in a monotone voice that could rival Snape’s.


“Same” Hermione said politely as Harry grunted in response.

Ron choosing to ignore him turned to Ria and began asking questions.

“Why are you here? Did something happen? Are you all right? Why didn’t you tell me you were coming?” He rambled on.


“Woah Ron stop I think Dumbeldore will answer all of those questions,” Ria said with an amused look on her face.


“Indeed I will…everyone please sit down” Dumbeldore said with all amusement gone from his voice which told everyone this was important.


“Are we not going to wait for the other Weasley’s” Ria said while looking around for them.


“No Fred and George have gotten too busy with their shop, Bill and Charlie couldn’t make it and Ginny is over at a friend’s house… I will explain the situation to them later.” Dumbeldore said.


“Wait so we are actually allowed into a meeting.” Ron said excitedly.


“Since this one includes Harry, and because I know he will tell you afterwards if we didn’t invite you, yes you will be allowed to this meeting.” He said as he started his lecture.


Chapter 2: But Where's your Heart?
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

“Now....most of you know Ria, if you don’t she is an adopted cousin of the Weasley’s. Now I will not give too much information on her personal life but the main reason she is here and not in her home town is because we are in need of her assistant” Dumbeldore began.


“ As you may already know Voldemort’s side is getting stronger, even as we speak, but not only are they getting stronger, they have a secret weapon not known to mankind, or wizard kind, Alchemy.”


 “What is Alchemy?” Asked Ron.


“Alchemy is a form of chemistry and speculative philosophy that was practiced in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance and concerned principally with discovering methods for transmuting baser metals into gold and with finding a universal solvent and an elixir of life.”


“ Yes but if it was in the middle Ages doesn’t that mean that alchemy is just a sham?” Ron pointed out.


“ It was proven that Alchemy was just and “advanced” version of chemistry and that the transmutation part was just a figment of their imaginations.” Replied Hermione.


“Yes that might have been true in this world, but how about the other worlds that are out there?” Dumbeldore asked.


“ What are you talking about what other worlds?” Hermione asked.


“A world where equivalent exchange is the basis of life, where in order to receive, something of equal value must be lost, that is alchemy’s first law of equivalent exchange. That is the world of which I have cane from and can never go back.” Ria explained while her head was turned downward to the ground.


“I don’t believe it, alchemy is just something from the medieval times, fine prove it to me show me alchemy.” Hermione asked.


“I can’t” Ria replied.


“And why not?” Hermione countered back.


“Because for some strange reason alchemy doesn’t work in this world, all the magic you can do, it’s all not equivalent, you gain so much with little effort, just words that come from your lips, it’s hardly equivalent exchange. Where does all the powers come from, why can you do these things while other humans can’t? These are questions that have baffled me ever since I came here.” Ria replied while looking down at her hands as if an explanation could appear from them.


“ So if you can’t use alchemy in this world than there is no problem Voldemort doesn’t have extra power against us.” Harry said, speaking for the first time.


“That is true Harry but for some odd reason, he is able, and has already used alchemy in this realm. This is exactly why we brought Ria here with us today.” Dumbeldore replied

“ If he can do alchemy than there is a loophole to the equivalent exchange in this world and I am going to find it.” Ria said with a passion behind her voice.


“ And this is where you Harry, Ron, and Hermione come in Ria knows a lot about magic, but not all and we need people to help her with the magic side of her investigation, and help find out how they are using alchemy, and how we can reverse that, or use it to our advantage. We would usually do that, but with all the attacks happening most if the order members are too busy to help her. But this is all up to you three, are you willing to help?”


“ I am” Heroine replied, standing up.


“ I am” Ron nodded his head as well as he stood up.


“ I am going to bring him down if it’s the last thing I do” Harry pronounced standing up as well.


“Good then first you guys need to….”


The front door slammed open as two shadowy figures approached the door.
