Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 Ministry Mayhem

"It was a dark and blustery evening, and Privet Drive was so quiet you could hear a pin drop in the sleepy silence if one was awake to do so. As it were, the residents in Little Winging were all tucked up in bed fast asleep… All that is, except for one.Harry Potter was sitting at his desk in his darkened bedroom, and the only light visible came from his wand tip."

2 Back with the wizarding world

"He soon drifted into a deep sleep, but had strange dreams all-night long. All he could see was Sirius before he died, and his voice echoing constantly, “Harry, Harry, Harry…” He woke up in a cold sweat, sat bolt upright and stared around the room as if thinking that Sirius was actually there. He thought he saw a silver wisp of smoke, could it be Sirius’s Patronus? Was he trying to contact Harry in some way?  As Harry wondered this, sleep washed over him and his emerald eyes closed".

3 Turning 17

"There was a claw like tapping at the kitchen window. “Ah, the post!” said Mrs. Weasley, and she opened the window. Three owls flew in to the kitchen and landed straight in front of Harry just as he was helping himself to some marmalade on toast. The owls ruffled their feathers as he put his toast aside and removed the post from them."

4 Destination, Determination & Deliberation


"At these words, he relaxed, and thought: “Destination, Determination and Deliberation”. Then he stepped forward and revolved on the spot like a spinning top.
He felt like he was slowly being forced through a solid rubber tube; he could not draw for breath. But no sooner had it begun, the unpleasant sensation ended. He opened his eyes and found that he had arrived at the point Twycross had asked for. He’d done it!"

5 Surprises beyond belief

It was pitch black. Trying to get his eyes to adjust to the light he thought that maybe Fred and George had left some Instant Darkness Powder behind and that someone must have spilled it… “Hello, is anyone there?” he called out loud, but there was no reply. Fumbling in his pocket, he drew out his wand and whispered, “Lumos”.
A burst of light filtered out of his wand and all the darkness disappeared. He blinked, and when he opened his eyes heard loud cries, “Happy birthday Harry!”

6 Hogwarts or Horcruxes?

" As he ate he felt a sense of happiness erupt from with in him, feeling like the time when he had taken Felix Felicis during his sixth year at Hogwarts. He was glad he had chosen to follow the mission that Professor Dumbledore had left him.  Thirty seconds later, Harry’s eyes met Ron and Hermione’s over the jug of cream; they had both finished their dessert. Hermione stood up and excused her self, and Ron and Harry followed her at once, as they knew the time had come to go."

7 The Wizard and the House Elf


"Harry did as he was told, and they stepped outside the tent to see their patroness’s glinting brightly as ever. Then their eyes adjusted to the dim light, and something moving caught their eye. As they watched with bated breath, a young Tom Riddle entered the cave with a golden locket placed around his neck. Thirty minutes later he reappeared and looked right at the place Harry, Ron and Hermione were standing in, as if  he was trying to penitrate their magical protection"

8 Hephzibah’s Treasure


"Harry, Ron and Hermione then saw something dreadful through the transparent curtains. Hokey was giving Hephzibah her evening cocoa and the old lady took a sip and started to turn blue until she was as pale as a ghost; she was dead! Hokey had poisoned her mistress under Tom Riddles Orders! Hermione had tears in her eyes as they heard the door open, and Hokey ran out and gave Tom the black box that encased the cup."

9 The Emerald Serpent


"Three hours later, around the stroke of midnight, Harry, Ron and Hermione were standing inside the tent entrance.
“I’m sure I just heard a noise outside,” Harry was saying to Ron and Hermione.
“Yeah, what did it sound like Harry?” asked Ron curiously.
“I – I suppose it was like something landing onto the forest floor out of the air,” said Harry. “Like a whooshing sort of sound,” he added hastily.
“Ssh,” Hermione said. “I think I hear something.”

10 Wit Beyond Measure Is Man's Greatest Treasure


"Voldemort entered the study as Dumbledore held the door open for him in welcome. He stepped into the room and Harry, Ron and Hermione slipped quickly in after him. Harry met Dumbledore’s twinkling blue eyes, and had an uneasy feeling that the Headmaster was x – raying them on spot where they stood under the cloak. 
“So Tom,” said Dumbledore with a smile. “What can I do for you this cold evening?”

11 The Trip to Diagon Alley


"As they reached Olivanders, they met Narcissa and Draco Malfoy coming out of the shop. It looked as if Malfoy had bought a new wand as he was holding a box wrapped in brown paper. “Potter, Weasley and Mudblood Granger,” commented Malfoy. “What a pleasant surprise.” Narcissa stared at Hermione rudely as if she were an animal to goggle at in a zoo. Harry and Ron immediately whipped out their wands and pointed them straight at Malfoy. “I’m warning you Malfoy,” said Harry, breathing slow and heavy."

12 The 1st of September

"Mrs. Weasley then ushered them all towards the barrier between platforms nine and ten. Unknown to the Muggles, there was something very special about this barrier. It was the entrance to platform 9 ¾, and the tricky thing was not getting through it, but that you had to enter without any Muggles noticing your disappearance, which is why Mrs. Weasley told Harry, Hermione, Ron and Ginny to go through one by one.  Harry went first; he ran as fast as he could towards the barrier, and as soon as he touched the solid bricks, he left the Muggle World behind!

13 Draco’s Warning


Harry saw Hagrid go round the back of his cabin, he disappeared for ten minutes during which Harry could hear Malfoy whispering to his gang. Harry had a very strong suspicion that they where talking about him behind his back. Sure enough, a few words floated in the air of what they were saying,  “Yes that potter…and he defended that Mudblood Granger in Diagon Alley! Call himself a wizard ha; real wizards wouldn’t befriend a Mudblood like that.”

14 Meeting the New Professor


"Harry was looking at the roaring fire in the grate when he felt someone’s eyes upon him. He had no doubt that it would be Professor McGonagall; when he would look round at her, she would probably snap and say, “Potter, pay attention”.  However, when he eventually turned his head to look at the two Professors, he discovered that it was not McGonagall after all. It was Professor Fortescue. "

15 Night Time Wanderings


" The Staff Area was suddenly flooded with bright white moonlight, revealing an ancient looking painting that covered the far wall.  Harry, Ron and Hermione rushed over to it. This painting was unlike any other portrait that the three friends had ever seen before at Hogwarts. It was a moving painting, but was different from the usual ones that decorated the corridors. The painting showed four people, two wizards, two witches."

16 Tricky Transfiguration


“As Miss Granger stated before, an Animagus is a Witch or Wizard who has the ability to transform into an animal. Observe.”  Professor Fortescue seemed to relax her grip on her wand, and then tightened it again. Instantly there came a change over the Transfiguration Professor; her slender figure was rapidly changing shape and size.
Then Harry saw something large and white flutter gracefully onto Fortescue’s desk. Hedwig… no, surely not!"

17 The Art of Undetectable Magic

After having an interesting transfiguration lesson, the trio make their way to Defence Against the Dark Arts.  Who should they come across but Professor Severus Snape!  Want to know what tedious lesson Snape has planned?  You'll have to read on to find out!

“Right, this term we will be studying the practical element of non-verbal spell usage and the power of invisibility.”

18 A Kiss On The Lakeside Bench

"Soon enough they reached the waters edge.  They both stared out onto the surface of the lake, a large bright moon was reflected within the water and every so often, a ripple would form and distort the moons reflection.  Over the other side of the lake was a grand tomb made of white marble, the tomb of Albus Dumbledore."

A/N: Please review I'd love to know what you all think of this Chapter!

19 An Explosive Shock For Malfoy

"When all the students had filed into the room and sat behind a desk, he began to speak in his squeaky voice. “Protection Charms, also known as Shield Charms, are standard for second and third years to learn. However, Professor McGonagall has asked me to teach you a stronger substitute for basic shield charms… yes Expulso Protego aught to do it,” he finished.  Harry and Ron looked at Hermione for an answer. “A much more powerful version of the Shield Charm - you might even say explosive,” she said smugly."

20 What The Hell Are Snidgets When They Are At Home?

"As Hagrid set the Snidget down gently on the leafy ground, Hermione assumed that it would fly away again into the surrounding pine trees. However, it did not move from its spot on the ground, and instead sat there quite contentedly, preening its delicate feathers and observing its audience through tiny, scarlet bright eyes."
