It is Harry Potter, without Harry Potter and is based on my love for the Weasley Twins. It takes plase around the time of the first Harry Potter book where Emily (the main character) is starting her 3rd yead at Hogwarts and her sister (Molly) is getting ready for her first. Hope you enjoy. Please Read and Review.

Chapter 1: A Rude Awakening
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

“It’s today! It is today! It’s today!” Molly screamed in my ear and shoved me out of bed.

“What?” I asked groggily as I got up off the floor to stand.

It was 8:30 a.m. 22 Aug. Since when does an eleven-year-old girl want to get up at 8:30 a.m. in the middle of summer when she was up late the night before?

“Today’s the day we go to Diagon Ally!” As she said this, Fred and George walked into my room. I was wearing an old nightgown that was way to short for when two hot guys walk into your room and you have a big crush on them.

Fred quickly looked me up and down then looked away maybe a little slower than he should have. At least he was a lot faster than George was. George just stared and said, “Nice Pyjamas, I really like the fairy,” wile elbowing Fred in the ribs.

“Now’s not the greatest time! We’ll come back later,” Fred mumbled, turning to leave and pulling George with him into the hallway.

“YOU,” I yelled at my sister. “You knew they were here! You knew and you still pushed me out of bed! You knew!”

She started laughing and could not stop! I could just hear laughter in the hall over her, and I knew it was not Fred.

I thrust Molly into the hallway and slammed the door shut. After I was dressed I went downstairs to where everyone was bustling about, quickly eating breakfast and making sure they had there list of school supplies for Hogwarts. We had gotten our owls weeks ago but both families had not had a free day yet, or at least not the parents. I grabbed a piece of toast off Fred’s plate and the bag of money with my name on it off the table.

“Everyone here?” my mom asked to the room at large. “Good!” she answered herself before anyone else could respond. “Okay. Emily got your list of school supplies?” my mom asked me because I almost forgot it last year.

“Don’t need it,” I answered, still not quite awake even through all the excitement. “I took all the same classes as Fred and George. I can just copy there lists. Oh, and mom, do we have to stay with you the whole time? This is our third year already. I know that place like Hogwarts.”

This was a very useful statement seeing as I knew most of
Hogwarts better than the back of my hand and my own bedroom. Now, no one knows quite all of Hogwarts secrets, not even Professor Dumbledore who has been there for who knows how many years, but I know it just as good if not better than most teachers, seventh years, and even Filch. Now the three of us (me, Fred & George) would be nowhere near as knowledgeable of the castle without the Marauder’s Map presented by none other than: Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs more commonly known as Remus Lupin (our Defence against the Dark Arts Teacher), Peter Pettigrew, Sirius Black (The supposed mass murderer), and James Potter. These all, to Molly and mine likes, were also our Godfathers. Yes, we both had four godfathers, even though most normal people only have one (who said we were normal?). The thing is you cannot know one without knowing the others. It is just like Fred and George, you know one, and you know the other.

“I’m not worried about the three of you getting lost,” she said, turning to look me in the eye. “I’m worried about trusting you.”

“We won’t go down Knockturn Ally,” we said in harmony. “No crossed fingers,” Fred added this just to be sure she believed us.

“Come on Mom. You can trust us,” I stated honestly, with a ‘hurt’ look on my face.

“Well,” she said looking to the other parents for help. “Okay. I guess you guys don’t have to stay with us the whole time,” she said this with a sweet but frantic look on her face. There also was a little worry in it if you looked long enough.

Chapter 2: The Floo Network
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

“Now, Arthur, why don’t you go first, then Molly Weasley, Ronald, Molly Tazen, Fred, George or George, Fred it doesn’t matter and I can’t tell the difference any ways. Then Emily, Percy, Dad and me, Sound good?” as my mom rattled off the names, we got in a single file line facing the fireplace in the order she had said.

“Mom, how can you not tell the difference between Fred and George? George is most defiantly the uglier one.” I said, pointing to Fred, then quickly switching as if I did not know.

Even though they were ‘identical’ twins, they were not identical. It was easy for me to tell them apart. Fred had an extra freckle on his nose.

My mom just shook her head laughing. “Okay. Let’s go,” as she said this, Mr. Weasley stepped up to the fireplace, took some floo powder, threw it into the fire, stepped into the flame after it and said, “Diagon Ally,” then he disappeared in a burst of flame.

I watched slowly until it was my turn to go. Then I, took some floo powder, threw it into the fire, stepped in after it and said, nice and clearly, “Diagon Ally.” I quickly closed my eyes to stop from dizzying and so no soot and ash could get in them. I squinted through my eyelashes until I saw Fred and George’s faces. I slowly opened my eyes as I stopped turning and stepped out into the blazing sunlight. This was Diagon ally, just as I remembered it.

Once everyone got through the fireplace, we chose our meeting place, Flourish and Blots (the bookstore), and the time.

“Come on Mom, we can’t get all our supplies in only two hours. Give us till 2 p.m. and we’ll meet you then,” George was arguing with his mother how long it will take us.

“Fine 2 o’clock sharp. Any later and you both will be grounded. That means NO seeing Emily!”

“But Mom…”

“No buts… you already stretched my two hours to four hours. You do not need four hours to buy school supplies.”

“Yes we do!”

“We need at least one hour for all the walking up and down the street,”

“At least one hour to eat,”

“Because it’s almost lunch time,”

“And two hours to actually pick and buy our supplies in the stores.” Fred and George were very good manipulators, and very good at wasting time as well.

“Okay. You can have four hours but no more. As I said before 2 o’clock sharp or you’ll be grounded for the rest of the summer!” Mrs. Weasley said sternly.

We started off. As we got closer to Gringotts, the wizard bank, Fred, George, and I snuck up behind Ron and my sister, Molly, and said, in our most ‘goblin’ like voices,
“Enter, strangers, but take heed
Of what awaits the sin of greed,
For those who take, but do not earn,
Must pay most dearly in their turn,
So if you seek beneath our floors
A treasure that was never yours,
Thief, you have been warned, beware
Of finding more than treasure there”

It scared both of them so much; they almost hugged each other in fright. Now this may not seem too bad to you, but Molly despised Ron so much.

“Okay guys,” I said stopping Fred and George, grabbing an arm on each side, “Where shall we start? I know I need new robes from Madam Malkin’s, and probably some nice dress robes wile we’re there, more potions ingredients from the Apothecary, and of coarse our new book list from Flourish and Blots, but that’s where we’re meeting so we can buy them then. I could use a new hat and gloves, and my winter cloak is excessively short. I need some parchment, quills, and ink. Then there is the quidditch equipment, owl care products, and the second hand store. We also need to eat sometime between now and two. So where do you want to start?” As I tallied off the supplies, Fred and George looked around for the places I was mentioning.

“Well, the Apothecary, Madame Malkin’s, and Flourish and Blots are all that way, so I think we should do those after lunch, closer to 2,” Fred said, pointing west.

“The Leaky Cauldron, Quality Quidditch Supplies, the Owl Emporium, and the ‘Quill’ shop is that way along with where you buy your gloves and hats,” George said, pointing east, opposite Fred. “But do we really want to eat at the Leaky Cauldron?” George added with a disgusted look on his face.

“Well let’s start this way,” I said, pointing east myself. “Let’s go!”

Chapter 3: Shopping
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

We started off, walking towards the ‘Quill’ shop. We walked in the front door and saw none other than, our friend, Lee Jordan.

“Hey Lee, what have you been up to lately?” George asked, slapping Lee on the shoulder.

“Not much… Who are you with today? I don’t see your mom or dad,” Lee asked, looking past us into the crowd behind.

“There with Molly and Ron. They are both starting first year this year. NO, we cannot go down Knockturn Ally, Lee. We promised we would not and if we do now, they will never leave us alone again. Plus we only have until 2 p.m. and we just started shopping.” I told Lee sternly.

“I’ve never known you three to stick to the schedule and be there on time.” Lee remarked.

“We have to, or else we’ll be grounded for the rest of the summer.” Fred stated.

“What does that have to do with anything? Who cares if you get grounded?” Lee asked. “You didn’t care about that the last, who knows how many times.”

“That’s because Fred here doesn’t want to not see his beloved Emily,” George joked.

“No, it’s that I won’t let them because, I don’t want to be stuck at home, only being able to talk to Molly. Ewe,” I said, with a small shiver at the thought.

They all laughed. “That wouldn’t be too bad,” George mumbled, once he caught his breath.

“That’s because you have a crush on her,” Fred and I mussed.

“I-I d-do not!” George stammered, trying to sound believable.

Fred, Lee, and I laughed. Once we all caught our breath, I asked Lee, “Who are you with and do you think they’ll let you come with us, or how far are you into your shopping?”

“Well, I’m with my Dad,” Lee said, pointing behind him towards the counter, “And we just started shopping as well. I’ll go ask him if I can go with you, Okay.” Then he turned and left.

When he came back, he had a huge smile on his face. “I can go with you guys,” he said, “Where are you meeting your parents?”

“Flourish and Blots, at two,” I supplied.

“Good, that’s where I thought and told my dad. Let’s disappear!”

We quickly bought some quills, ink and parchment, and left the store. Then we headed toward the clothing shop. After we bought about half our supplies, we figured we should have something to eat. After all, it was 11:30 and I only had a piece of toast for breakfast off Fred’s plate.

“We can always just have ice-cream?” George suggested, pointing to Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour.

“I need more than ice-cream. I need sustenance,” I told George. “Let’s just eat at the Leaky Cauldron,” I added and started walking toward it.

“Fine,” the other three decided and followed.

After we ate, we headed back down the street toward the Apothecary. We bought our potions ingredients and got some new robes fitted. By the time all that was finished it was 1:55, so we just walked across the street to where we were meeting everyone, Flourish and Blots. We walked in the door and found Mr. and Mrs. Weasley as well as my Mom and Dad, Ron, Molly, Percy, and Mr. Jordan.

“All we need now is our book list and some ice-cream,” I said to the group. “We’re even a couple minutes early.”

“Yes, but you don’t have your books, like you mentioned.” Mrs. Weasley said sternly, looking me in the eye.

“We didn’t have the time,” I stated honestly.

“Why is that? Did you go down Knockturn Ally or why did you not have the time? We obviously did, and we had to buy wands,” Mrs. Weasley questioned.

“We did all just get new robes fitted. That’s four of us, three sets of work robes, and a winter cloak each, plus Emily got a set of nice dress robes,” Fred declared a little hurt from the accusation. “And there were only two fitters, so both witches had to fit eight different robes; one even had to fit nine. They can only fit robes so fast.”

“We also ate an okay lunch,” George added defensively as Ron’s stomach growled loudly.

“Let’s just get our books and stop all the fuss. If you truly don’t believe us, go across the street and ask yourself,” I alleged and stepped past Mrs. Weasley to talk to the sales clerk. “Fred, where is our book list? This man needs it.”

“Okay so that’s three copies of Unfogging the Future, by Cassandra Vablatsky, wait Lee, are you taking Divinations this year? Make those four copies. Intermediate Transfiguration and Standard Book of Spells, Grade Three, that is four copies again. Lee are you also taking Care of Magical Creatures? Then we need four copies of The Monster Book of Monsters. Sorry,” Fred added the sorry because of the look the sales clerk had on his face when he said it.

Once we all got our books and straightened out the money, we all headed out the door and down the street towards Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour where we all ordered ice cream. After we were done, we headed back toward the fireplace, where we could use the Floo Network.

Chapter 4: Embarrassment
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

“So you guys didn’t get grounded, for once, and I finally have a wand that won’t turn into a chicken,” Molly said once we got back to our house.

“Yeah, but you can’t use it out of school. You also do not know any spells yet. You still cannot have vengeance. Mwaa ha,” I laughed my evil laugh at her.

We had played many mean tricks on Molly, and teased her about not being a witch until you have a wand. I was glad that I did not have to be around her 24/7 once we got to school. “Hopefully you’re in a different house,” I thought aloud. Molly kicked me in the shin and Fred and George laughed.

“You’d be perfect for...Hufflepuff. Don’t you agree?” Fred asked George and me.

“Oh yeah, well… uh…” Molly stammered, trying to come up with a comeback. “All you do for Gryffindor is… uh… loose house points! So there!”

“We may loose a few points here and there, yeah. Everyone dose. We also gained a bunch of house points, did we not? Actually, I think last year, if not for us gaining twenty-five points each, including Lee, we would not have won the house cup. We only won by fifty points,” George said, defeating Molly like swatting a fly.

“How did you each earn twenty-five points?” Molly asked us, ‘innocently’.

“Why would we tell you? That’s our little secret,” I said. “Now go away wile we plan our next private experiment, seeing as we’re going to be officially allowed in Hogsmead this year. So we can go to Zonko’s and not have to sneak around.”

We walked into my room and closed the door in her face.

“What should we get to make these?” I asked George, holding up what looked like an ordinary everyday quill.

“Is that the Self-Checking, Self-Inking, or Quick-Answer quill?” Fred asked, absentmindedly going through another box.

“I don’t know. Why don’t we find out?” I asked and grabbed a bit of parchment. “Well, it’s not Self-Inking,” I assumed after scratching the paper a couple of times and reaching for an inkbottle. “What question should we ask it?”

“Does Emily have a crush on Fred?” George said to the quill.

Yes. I wrote on the paper after waiting a second to see if it was a Quick-Answer.

“I guess it’s just a normal quill. It didn’t check my answer.” I said as Fred and George glanced at the paper, one over each shoulder.

“Or, your answer is actually correct and you just don’t want to admit it,” George said, nudging me closer to Fred.

“There is no way!” I said, moving away from Fred again and biting my lip.

“Let’s see… Does George have a crush on Molly?” Fred said, directing the question at the quill.

Yes. I wrote again. “I guess it is a normal quill.” George said when nothing happened.

“Let me see that!” Fred said grabbing the quill out of my hand and dipping it in the ink again wile thinking. “Hmm… Do I have a crush on Molly?” Fred asked and wrote Yes, for a third time. The quill quickly went back, crossed it out and wrote No.

“See, it is a Self-Checking!” He said, turning to face me, and then going red.

“W-well, it m-must be flawed,” George stammered.

“Yeah,” Fred and I both agreed and put the quill and parchment in a box beside the desk.

After that incident, we checked quills with more sensible questions.

Knock, Knock, Knock. Creeeeak! Molly opened my door and poked her head in. “Emily, Supper.”

“Already, it seems like we just got home. Time sure flies when you’re having fun!”

“What time is it?” Fred asked Molly.

“Around six o’clock. Why?” Molly questioned, opening the door wider so she could stand in the doorway. She was already wearing her school robes and hat.

“Um… because our mom wanted us home around six o'clock, or at least to call. And uh… why exactly are you wearing your school stuff?” George requested.

“Let me guess. You already have all your school stuff sorted and packed?” I asked her, knowing the answer.

After we ate supper and Fred and George went home, I wrote to my godfathers.

Dear Sirius, James, Peter & Remus (if your there)

We went to Diagon Ally today. It is too bad we will not see you before school’s start. Maybe you can sneak over to Hogsmead, seeing as I can go, legally this year. On the other hand, knowing Dumbledore, you might be able to come and ‘visit Moony’, hopefully! I really miss you. All of you …well, maybe some a little more than I do others. Cannot wait to see you, Christmas at the latest (Professor Lupin not included).

Lots of Love, Truly missing you,
Emily Tazen

Once Hedwig was out of site with my letter, I cleaned off my bed, got into my pyjamas and went to sleep.

One week later, 29 Aug I was busy packing everything I ‘needed’ for school when I herd a bark downstairs. I quickly stood up from trying to get a quill that fell behind my desk, whacking my head in the process, and ran, so fast I practically fell, downstairs.

Chapter 5: Surprise Visit
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

            I reached the bottom of the stairs just as a big hairy thing that started licking my face bowled me over. “Sirius, get off!” I yelled, laughing and pushing him off me.

            I got up. The hairy thing that attacked me was actually one of my godfathers. He was an animagus. He could transform from a person to a dog and back again. He transformed back into himself and said, “I read your letter and you sounded so sad not to see us so we had to get a time all three of us could come. Lupin is at school getting ready but you’ll see him everyday, so he didn’t have to come.”

            I gave them all huge hugs, Sirius the biggest of all. “It’s always nice to see you guys. I really did miss you. The last time we saw each other was… was it Christmas?”

            “I think so! So if we didn’t come now, we wouldn’t have seen you for an entire year!” James said giving me another hug.

            “I can’t believe you all are actually here! And you brought Hedwig!” I ran and got her off Peter’s shoulder.

            “She doesn’t like Sirius much,” Peter said with a chuckle.

            “I don’t blame her. Who would like him?” I joked. That earned me a headlock from Sirius that I had to fight out of, laughing the entire time.

            “So where’s that sister of yours?” James asked as Molly ambled down the stairs.

            Even though it was twelve o’clock, she was still in her pyjamas. They were purple footy Pyjamas with green polka dots.

            “Hey, nice Pyjamas, They match mine,” Sirius exclaimed.

            “I know,” answered Molly, giving them all hugs. “I gave them to you! Don’t you remember the card?”

            “Oh, I remember the card, and I don’t think I’ll ever forget it. I was in the basement and it still woke up my mom.” Sirius reminisced, wile we all laughed.

            “So what have you been up to lately? Hopefully not up to trouble now,” I questioned Sirius seriously, just as they always ask us.

            He chuckled and shook his head. “No, Dumbledore has been keeping a very close eye on me!” he said, winking. “He’s also keeping everyone around busy including me. It was hard enough for me to sneak out to come here to see my favourite goddaughters.

            “That’s why he gave me another job,” he added gravely, looking at my mother. “I was sent to tell you that they’ve been spotted. We did not know weather our owls were safe, so Dumbledore sent me…. Well. Actually …I somewhat … uh … I kind of bagged him.”

            “Kind of?” James asked, elbowing him in the ribs. “You basically got down on your hands and knees. He still didn’t want you to come but you said we’d all go and that Emily really wanted to see us.”

            “That last part is true. Sirius cannot lie to Dumbledore. I’ve seen him try!” I said with a smile on my face. “I don’t care what it took you to get here, I’m just glad you’re here!” I added as an after thought.

            “Who have been spotted?” my sister asked James, looking up from her hug she was still giving.

            “No one that concerns you, so why don’t you go pack, school's in three days!” James answered.

            “You know I’m already finished, you just want to get rid of me.” Molly said, crossing her arms and stamping her feet in a way that said ‘I’m not going any where’.

            “Does it concern me?” I asked, leaning on the living room doorframe. “I know you like to talk about that sort of thing behind my back, but it concerns me, and I’m old enough to understand. Do you not think I need to know what or who is out there looking for ME? I know more than you think. You are not as good at hiding what you are talking about as you think you are. I’ll find out whether you tell me or not… even if I have to go out there and find out for myself.” My last comment was cruel; I knew it was before I said it, but if that is what it was going to take to get them to talk to me, I would say that I would risk my life to know.

Chapter 6: Knowledge is Power
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

     “If we tell you, you won’t tell anyone else?” Sirius and James asked together, as soon as I finished my final sentence.

     “You won’t tell her anything!” my mom yelled at them, “She’s too young. It’s for Order Members only!”

     “You’d rather she goes out there and walks right into deaths waiting arms because she doesn’t know!” Sirius yelled right back. “I won’t let that happen to such a young, intelligent, witch such as herself. She has to much potential for that!”

     “You know I don’t want her to die. You also know that she is too young! Even if she did know what was out there, she couldn’t do anything, she doesn’t know enough magic. She’s not of age!” my mom said.

     “Why do you talk about me as if I’m not even here? Maybe you are right mom, maybe I should live my live in a bubble, where I know no magic a have someone by my side 24/7 to protect me. I guess I am too young to understand. To understand how you do not even know or want to protect your own daughter. Come on Molly let us go upstairs. You can help me pack and I will tell you some stories about Hogwarts. Maybe next year you can tell me some because I won’t be seeing it at all this year.” I said, grabbing my sister’s arm and starting up the stairs.

     “What do you mean you won’t be seeing it?” my sister asked, walking with me, “You aren’t going this year?”

     “That’s what it sounds like mom wants.” I mumbled.

     “She’s as good a witch, if not better than you were when you joined the Order. I know she is better than I was; she has had great teachers, especially for Defence against the Dark Arts. You know he’ll teach her everything she needs to know.” James said. Then reached across and grabbed my arm before I could make it any further up the stairs. “If your mom thinks you need a body guard, I can always suggest us to Dumbledore; no one would mess with your guard dog. Plus, I’m pretty sure we know our way around Hogwarts.” He smiled at me, trying to make me feel at least a little better.

     “It would be great if you were at school, but I wouldn’t want you around me 24/7. I need some alone time.”

     “Well we can’t go up in the girls’ dormitory.” Sirius said smiling.

     “You tried to get past that spell when you were in school didn’t you?” I asked, starting to smile again.

     “Many times, many times…” James said a huge smile on his face.

     “We almost got to the first floor to.” Sirius said an even bigger smile on his face.

     “You do know the stairs only change if you step on them right?”

     “What do you mean?” Sirius and James asked together.

     “You mean, what Fred, George, and I found out second year, you didn’t figure out in your seven years. Wow, I thought you were smarter than that. If you don’t touch the staircase, there’s no spell. You can just fly up.” I said, really smiling now.

     “You mean I could have used my broom and flew up to sneak in on the girls instead of trying to run up a slippery slope! Why couldn’t you have told me this when I was in seventh year,” James asked, hitting himself on the forehead. “Seriously Sirius, why couldn’t we think of that?”

      “You wanted to pantie raid the girls’ dormitory, didn’t you?” I asked, putting my hands on my hips and looking ‘very disappointed’ in them.

     “No, of course not!” James said, acting offended wile trying to hold back a laugh. “How could you assume such a thing?”

     “You do know Sirius just totally gave you away, right? Also, that is exactly what Fred and George did once we figured out how they could get up.” I said with a disgusted look on my face. “They raided everyone’s drawers except mine so everyone thought that it was my fault. It was a good thing they did not go through my drawers though. I would have really hurt them if they did… wait a minute; I believe I hurt them anyways if I am not mistaken.” I added and smiled.

     “Why did you help them figure out how to get to the girls dormitories in the first place?” Molly asked, still partway up the stairs behind me.

     “That… is a very good question. Why did you help them Emily?” James asked me, a smile playing on his face.

     “Because… umm, well, even if I didn’t help they probably would have figured it out… umm, so I figured that… umm, why not help and then the wont… I don’t know; get mad at me or what ever… yeah,” I mumble, more to myself then anyone else, not making any sense.
