Weasley Twin Take Over
Chapter Two – Back To Hogwarts
There was shock throughout the wizarding world when the headlines the next morning read Weasley Twins Buy Hogwarts. Even those who didn’t know the Weasley twins had a feeling that things were going to be interesting at Hogwarts now.
Harry, Ron and Hermione bordered the Hogwarts express wondering what changes would be made. Harry and Ron were ecstatic, while Hermione was a little worried. Who on earth knew what they would do?
“I can’t wait to get back to school, it is going to be awesome this year,” Ron said excitedly.
“I don’t know, they don’t exactly know how to govern a school do they?” Hermione said anxiously biting her lip.
“It will be fine,” Harry said, “Fred and George will be able to liven the school up a bit.”
“If you say so,” but Hermione was not convinced.
“Welcome to Hogwarts,” Dumbledore said greeting Fred and George as they arrived before the students.
“Hello Dumbledore,” they chorused with big smiles.
“You have requested rooms here; they are right over here if you’d please follow me,” Dumbledore said turning to lead the way.
“Actually we were wondering if we could get straight to business…” George started.
“See we have a few changes we want to make,” Fred finished.
“Oh,” Dumbledore said, slightly worried.
“Come on Dumbledore…” George said eagerly
“You know you can trust us…” Fred insisted.
“Alright,” Dumbledore said, wondering what exactly these changes were.
The first thing you noticed upon entering the Great Hall was the annoyed looks on the teachers’ faces. Once and a while Professor McGonagall would shoot a glare at one of the twins, who were seated next to Dumbledore. If you looked for just a little longer, you would notice that Snape would glare at them too and Dumbledore looked a little paler then usual.
The second thing you notice is that there are two large boxes on either side of the doors; they have dark block letters reading ‘DROP BOX.’ Next to them are some pieces of parchment along with some ink and quills.
If you are very observant you would notice that the house banners are now animated and the Slytherin banner is just slightly small then all the rest.
The first years lined up looking anxiously at the small worn hat on the stool in front of them. Suddenly its mouth opened wide and it began to sing.
Jokesters now rule the school,
And you’re all thinking this is going to be cool.
Just watch and see,
And remember this warning from me.
It is not all fun and games,
Better watch out or it’ll end in flames.
Listen and take care,
Then you’ll see what has always been there…
The Weasley twins know what they’re doing,
They see the darkness looming.
It is unity that you now need,
So remember my warning and take heed.
The sorting began and the older students began to talk amongst themselves. Harry, Ron and Hermione turned toward each other.
“The teachers don’t seem too pleased,” Hermione pointed out immediately as they sat down. “Wait, is Snape wearing…” But she was cut off by Dumbledore’s booming voice, the sorting had ended.
“Welcome students,” he said and the whole hall went silent. “As you have probably heard over Christmas break the ownership of Hogwarts has traded hands. The new owners are Mr. Fred Weasley and Mr. George Weasley.
At this there was some clapping, whistling and booing, the booing coming from the Slytherins of course.
“There are to be a few changes this year,” Dumbledore said going even paler. “First I would like to announce that there are new Heads of Houses. For Hufflepuff there will be Professor Flitwick, for Ravenclaw it will be Professor Sprout, for Slytherin it will be Professor McGonagall and for Gryffindor it will be Professor Snape.”
At this talking erupted all over the hall. Everyone looked horror stricken and Slytherins and Gryffindors alike seemed ready to faint. It was a nightmare; it was horrible, it was just… wrong.
“You have to be joking me!” Ron shouted angrily, he glared at Hermione as she opened her mouth, most likely to say ‘I told you so.’
“Professor Snape?” groaned Harry. “I think I’ve lost my appetite.”
“As I was saying before Snape is wearing Gryffindor colors,” Hermione said looking up at Snape who looked livid. “McGonagall is wearing Slytherin colors too.”
“Bloody hell,” Ron swore, “I never thought I’d see the day.”
“Quidditch is now open to first years and there are no restrictions on what you can use in the hallways, magic and pranks included,” Dumbledore did not seem too pleased about this. “More rules will be added or changed at a later date, also please not the drop boxes on either side of the doors. They are there for student suggestions on how to improve the school, now please tuck in.”
Food magically appeared and everyone started to talk loudly, barely anyone ate. No Slytherins or Gryffindors touched their food at all. They had all lost their appetite considering that their switch in Head of House. It appeared that things were going to be very different from now on.
“I’m almost afraid to see our schedules tomorrow,” Hermione said as they made their way up the Gryffindor common room.
“It isn’t that bad,” Harry said, sticking up for the twins. “It could be worse.”
“They have no restrictions what so ever, there will be magic and havoc in the hallways! People will be jinxed and hurt left and right. The school will be a mad house!” Hermione countered.
Seeing that her words had no affect on the boys she said the password and marched up to the girl’s common room.
“Well done,” Fred said with a grin.
“I do have to say, their faces were priceless,” George grinned.
“I can’t wait until tomorrow.”
“This is going to be interesting.”
“Very interesting…” Dumbledore sighed as he pushed away the image of the two trouble makers from his all seeing mirror. “It will be very interesting indeed…” He whistled to himself smiling at the memory of Snape in Gryffindor colors and McGonagall in Slytherin colors. Only the Weasley twins would know what tomorrow would bring.
