Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 Owls

Albus laughed as he picked up his letter. James’s was beneath his, with an official stamp from the Ministry Department of Education on it.

“Is that…?” Mum asked, her voice trailing off.

“I think so,” Albus said as he opened his letter. He scanned it briefly. Just like Lily’s, it contained nothing unusual.

2 The Protest

“How many classes are you planning to skive off?” Amanda asked John, who’d placed five Skiving Snackboxes into his basket.

John shrugged. “No idea, but I like to have options.”

“Options being selling them to first and second years,” Kaden pointed out.

“What?” Amanda asked.

“Thought of it this summer,” John said. “First and second years can’t get to Hogsmeade and buying them right in the common room is easier than owl order.”

3 The Test

“You’re going to psych yourself out, Al,” Rose said as they waited by the fire in Grimmauld Place for the time to arrive for them to floo to the Ministry.

“That’s impossible, since I’m going to fail again anyway,” Albus said. “You have to be able to Apparate to psych yourself out and I can’t-“

“Oh, shut it,” Rose interrupted, rolling her eyes. “You’re better than you think.”

4 Head Girl

“Why were you late?” Rose asked.

“I wasn’t late. I was right on time,” Albus corrected.

“You were not,” Rose said, opening the door.

Albus charmed his trunk once more and directed it out into the corridor. “I was on the train at eleven. Mum kept trying to assure me there’s no pressure about the Auror Academy. And then she was crying about this being my last year. Did your mum do that?”

5 Aconite

“Well,” Professor Longbottom said as he clapped his hands. He was grinning quite widely for someone about to deal with violent plant life. “This year we’ll be spending most of our time in here dealing with my more challenging plants.”

“That’s one way to put it,” John muttered. “Challenging.”

“Follow me,” Professor Longbottom said as he unlocked the door with his wand. “And mind your fingers.”

Albus obediently shoved his hands into his pockets as he walked in with the rest of the class. Missing fingers wouldn’t help him in his quest to become an auror.

6 Felix Felicis

“Things are changing,” Amanda said quietly. “Did you see the Prophet this morning? People are still protesting.”

“Dad said all the attention is good for Boone’s case,” Matt said. “He said the more media attention it gets, the better.”

“Trial by media, I suppose,” Rose replied. “Just like before. Weird how the public’s view can change so much.”

“I don’t think it has. It’s just different people speaking out,” Albus said.

7 Careers

“What would you want to do, I mean, if you could do anything?” Albus asked.

“You mean if I wasn’t a werewolf?” Matt whispered.

“Yeah,” Albus said.

Matt nodded, but didn’t say anything for a few minutes. “I haven’t thought about that, either, because I’ve been a werewolf since I was five. When I was five I wanted to be a dragon tamer.”

8 International Relations

“You know, it’s called the Forbidden Forest for a reason,” Madam Pomfrey said as she plastered a bandage onto one of the twins’ arms.

“Our great granddad says they’re not usually violent,” one of the twins said.

“And who is your great granddad?” Madam Pomfrey asked.

“Newt Scamander,” the other twin answered.

9 The Werewolf Registry

“So, you were quiet during that,” John said to Matt as they walked back to the castle. “You’ve always liked Care of Magical Creatures.”

“I do,” Matt said. “It’s not the creatures. It’s just…Newt Scamander used to work for the Ministry. He created the Werewolf Registry.”

Albus stopped walking, suddenly unable to feel the sleet hitting his face. “Wait, he did?”

10 Malfoy's Secret

“Swear to me, Albus,” Malfoy said.

That snapped Albus out of his thoughts. Malfoy never called him anything other than ‘Potter.’

“Swear to me you won’t tell,” Malfoy whispered, not making eye contact. “I’ve kept Eckerton’s secret for years. You owe me.”

11 Emily Rhodes

“I was just going to ask how James is doing,” Emily said. “I was pretty good friends with Meg Johnson.”

“Was?” Albus asked.

Emily sighed. “She’s gone a bit weird since James. Although I think it has more to do with her dad being in such trouble with the Ministry. They never got on, Meg and her dad. I think half the reason she dated James was to spite her dad. We haven’t really spoken since she left Hogwarts. I sent her an owl in the beginning of summer, but she never replied.”

12 Scouts

“I just don’t understand why they didn’t send this months ago!” John exclaimed as he read the letter for what must’ve been the tenth time.

“Would you have done anything different?” Albus asked, not looking up from his revised Auror Academy essay. The application was due in a week and Professor Longbottom wanted it sent off the next day. “Rose, could you look this over again?”

Rose sighed, setting down the book she was reading. “Did you actually change anything since I last read it?”

“I…I think so,” Albus muttered. “Could you just read it?”

13 A Different Perspective

“Can’t say that was your best match,” James said, smirking.

“I was distracted,” Albus muttered, offering James a hand up.

James took it, wincing slightly. “By that letter you read on Dad’s desk?”

“No,” Albus muttered. “You ok?”

“You’re a terrible liar. And I’m fine. My leg’s been bothering me a bit. Healers think I ought to go back to using the cane,” James said.
