  1. What is your age?
  2. What is your gender?
  1. The night before the newest chapter in my life. Hogwarts was just around the corner but right now all I could do was stay awake and remember the great week I had with my parents. My father, Mr Edard Rivers, took me to get all of my required stuff, including my wand, "rations pack" for the train filled with magical sweets and the best bit, my owl. My wand was interpreted by the wand maker, to match me. The wand chose me. His words as he described it, were still ringing in my ears. I had returned home that week, my wand in hand. "It suits you" my father was watching me run my things over the engraved symbols "How? I mean Ollivander said it's because I'm stubborn." he laughed as he placed the last box filled with food on the table. My wand was Ash wood, with a hair from the tail of a certain unicorn that stood seventeen hands high and when Ollivander was getting the hair he accidently grabbed two of different colours, one was glistening black, thick dark it was strong of the dark magic, mine while the other was thin, shining and pure white sold to a boy who was now in third year. The wood was pale near the handle but it faded to black at the end, as if it had been singed. The handle had a black snake wrapping itself round strangling the handle and its head reaching to bite at the top with its huge fangs seeming so sharp and its body engraved with its scales and certain symbols even my father didn't know about.

  3. "Ah I didn't hear you came home! I was upstairs putting your clothes into your trunk. How was Diagon Alley?" A woman appeared at the doorway to my room, my mother, Mrs Cassidy Rivers. Her blonde hair was thrown over her shoulders, her bright blue eyes had a sense of home as I looked into them. Her rose lips curved into a smile. "Mum it was AMAZING! I wish you weren't working when we left. Glad you're home, can I help pack?" "Definitely, you weren't going to get away with your mother doing it for you" My father nudged into my side, his eyes, chocolate brown, his mid-length hair to one side. His smile wide as he laughed alongside my mother. "Dad you taught me some stuff with your wand, could we practise in the garden?" "Of course, your mother will be making dinner so we can then, sound good?" "Sure" I placed my new Owl's cage on the dresser by my bed, and let her out. Aryana, a snowy owl. Her eyes beautiful yellow. As I snapped out of my little flashback I looked up at her eyes and saw that tonight her eyes and feathers were shining in the moonlight. I went back into my day dream of the beginning of the week. I placed my robes and clothes into my trunk. My rations pack was placed beside it so I could pick out some sweets for the journey. As I ran my hand down the bannister I peered over the side to see my mother dancing with my father. They looked so happy. As they stopped and just accepted each other's embrace. My father perked up and said "It's funny, it seems like we're still the teenagers we were, spilling potions, dancing in the court yard and joking around with people like James and Lily. Even if they were Gryffindors. Now our daughter, OUR DAUGHTER is leaving us to live a path like we did. She must NOT disappoint us this year" As my father prepared me for Hogwarts he had me train alongside Draco Malfoy on our brooms. I disappointed him because I let Draco beat me in a race. I fell off when I first started as well and that wasn't acceptable. My mother kissed him and held onto him. They split as I ran down the stairs, my father motioned to me to join him with my wand outside.
  4. Running towards my father outside, I pulled my wand out of my back pocket. "Okay first things first, we'll start with disarming opponents, got it? Remember it? Good, start on me" I flipped my hair out of the way "It's a disarming charm, Expelliarmus!" I motioned with my wand and with that my father's wand went flying "Well done" he started to clap. "While I get my wand, try the spell to light your wand" "The Lumos charm. Okay. Lumos" My wand lit up and I walked towards my father "Good, Good now, the jinx I taught you." "The knockback jinx?" He nodded his head as I seemed to question my own judgement. "Here Iris try on me, I'll stand where I can land okay" he moved back. "Okay, Flipendo" He flew far back and underestimated my jinx. "Whoa, guess having your own wand means your magic is stronger". Where did that come from? "Last one, I think dinner will be ready soon" I peered over my shoulder to see my mother placing the cutlery on the dining table. "We learnt three more didn't we?" I remembered three, two which went together and then Expecto patronum, he seemed to realise. "Ah yes I taught you more. Use the first one then we can try the counter then we can work on the last." With that I pointed the wand at my father "Levicorpus" I burst out laughing as my father was hoisted in the air by his ankles. "Okay now put me down with the counter" "Liberacorpus" My father fell flat on his face straight into the ground "Well, now you know some stuff which can help you in DADA. Try the Patronus charm. Go on I know you can do it. Maybe you can hold it longer with your new wand." I readied myself and took myself back to a happy moment. The day I was at the zoo and a snake had somehow got loose from his glass box. I heard it whisper to me and it was calling for directions to the exit, I crouched down to it and I asked it where it wished to go. He wished to go to Burma where he would belong. I told him where to go and I saw him set free. That for me was something that made me happy because when my father found out he said he needed to talk to someone. I felt the happiness of making my father finally proud of me so I cast it "Expecto Patronum!" A large wolf ran circles round me then in the air. My father watched the wolf come down and sat beside me. He disappeared as I pulled myself from the focus.
  5. . "Clear up you two, your turn, I cooked so you both can clean. No magic" My mother placed her bowl in the sink and left to the living room chuckling. "I'll just use magic so we can clean up and practise the last one" "Okay" I splashed my dish into the sink and after only a few moments were joined outside by my father. "As this is more of a dangerous curse, use the dummy we made quite a while ago. Go ahead" I turned towards the dummy, my father readying a bucket to tip over what I was about to do. "Confringo" The dummy burst into flames at a jet of fire came straight out of my wand. The bucket of water and a little help from my father's wand put the rest of the flames out "That's it""Dad, do you think I'll be in Slytherin, like you were?" I bit my lip as I thought about how my father may not be proud of me if I didn't follow in his footsteps. Mother wasn't as bothered. She too was in Slytherin but she may have been strict with me but not so that she would be disappointed in which house I was in. "I think you have no need to worry. The sorting hat will put you into the best house. Severus is in Slytherin, he's a good friend of mine. You'll be in Slytherin."
  6. Can i run away? 6. Finally I had fallen asleep. I woke in the morning to have the sun light bouncing off my mirror in to my eyes. "urgh..." My Origami birds which I charmed to fly were still flying round every now and then. The sun had only recently risen and I just wanted to go back to sleep but knew I couldn't. It was only 5:30 so I jumped in the shower, put on my dark jeans and a plain black t-shirt and my burgundy hoodie, zipped it half way and finished preparations for my new life. It had reached 6 when my parents woke up and made breakfast. Only my mother would be coming with me to platform 9 and 3/4, my father had to return to work. Just as we were about to leave, my mum grabbed my arm "Your father and I have one last surprise" A long box was pulled from the cupboard under the stairs. You opened it to find a Nimbus 2000 the newest and fastest make, we weren't really allowed our own broomsticks but mum and dad were letting me take one. "Whoa.... Thanks" I was lost for words and speechless after my little outburst. I planned on joining the quidditch team as a chaser. "Thought you'd like it" My father was in his black suit. "I have to go and so do you two. Just a tiny bit of advice now, Draco Malfoy will be the one to look out for. Remember him and his father? You two are... friends, just be right with him don't do anything stupid, he's a definite Slytherin. Hopefully you'll listen to me and join him." I didn't want to disappoint him so I nodded my head. He pointed to a few words engraved into the broom and left. "˜Fly with your eyes closed' I didn't know what they meant by flying with my eyes closed. Wouldn't that mean you'd get hurt? My father had already gone by the time I looked up to question him.
  7. As we walked around kings cross with my mother I saw that there wasn't a platform of 9 and 3/4 that the muggles at least couldn't see. As I looked behind me a family with owls and bags like mine on trolleys were coming behind me. The family were all red heads. Their mother seemed stressed and was getting them to hurry. My mother did the same and hurried me through the wall. "Go on, before it's their turn." I ran straight into it closing my eyes. My mother got in behind me. "See, good isn't it?" Then one of the older boys from the family joined me on the other side. As we walked closer to the train I saw loads of people my age hugging and saying goodbye to their families. My mother helped to check I had everything. "Okay, wand?" "Check" "Owl?" "Check" "Oh why do I bother it was all there and you have your wand on you." My mother had finished talking when a woman around her age came up to her to say hello. "Narcissa Malfoy, it's good to see you again, Draco will be in Iris' year is that correct?" The tall woman was mother to Draco and she was definitely nicer than his father. "That is yes, Iris don't miss the train, if you see my boy don't regret ruining the bond" I had no idea what she was talking about but I guess it had something to do with my father and his. I boarded waving good bye to my mother and Madame Narcissa. A small black haired boy got on behind me with his dark green eyes surrounded by theses circular glasses. The red head had also boarded and was further in front.
  8. I walked past cabin by cabin and none were free. I sighed and just kept walking along. Some boys about my age were in the corridor. "Erm, can I get passed?" A boy with bleach blonde hair just looked me up and down. His grey eyes staring at me. "Er how about no?" A voice from behind him called out. He was rather chubby but he seemed like he was going to be a problem. "Crabbe leave it out" "But sh" "Shut it Crabbe" He was facing the boy that's when I noticed it was Draco "Hey Iris, nice to see you, been a while" I turned to see he was standing as tall as he could, and just snickered to myself "I just wanted to pass" He was obviously trying to hide he knew me so I whispered to him "Hey Draco" The boy Crabbe nudged me into the wall as I tried to pass but I tried to ignore him. As I walked past, Crabbe turned to the blonde boy "She's got a temper we could use against her" I just ignored it, probably just being immature. Suddenly I passed a room with only three people in, a young ginger boy from earlier, the boy with the glasses and a girl with short frizzy hair. I thought that it was the closest to a not so crowded carriage and knocked. The ginger boy looked up as he was stuffing his face with sweets. "Hi, sorry I'm Iris I couldn't find an empty carriage, and really yours looks like the emptiest one. Do you mind if I join? I have sweets" I smiled and they just nodded "I'm Hermione Granger" She held out her hand and I shook it being as nice as I could. Her hair was quite short yet quite untamed. She smiled at me, maybe I was the only girl she had talked to so far? The ginger boy with blue eyes wiped his hands and stuck his hand out, "Ron Weasley, nice to meet you" and finally the boy in the corner you recognised. "Sorry, I'm Harry, Harry Potter" His forest green eyes hid behind his glasses, his black hair seemed to cover a small scar but it was like he didn't want people seeing it. "Wow really you huh? My parents knew yours. I'm sorry for what happened to them Harry." THIS is the boy who lived, the potter boy. The one with the lightening scar. The one my father loathed.
  9. We were laughing and joking when a chocolate frog had jumped out of the packet and landed on Ron's leg. "Bloody hell, how much food do you have?! Seriously the bag doesn't seem to end" I laughed at Ron's face as he picked up the chocolate frog. A boy our age suddenly knocked on the door "Hi, sorry I just need to ask if you've seen Trevor?" He said sheepishly. Hermione introduced Neville and everyone shook their heads as no one had seen his precious toad. "Sorry Neville, can't help you, but he will turn up soon, try not to worry" I flashed him a shy, reassuring smile. Hermione went off with Neville and told us to all change into our robes as we would be arriving soon. Finally the train began to come to a halt as a man called for all the first years. He seemed to know Harry and he took us over to the boats. The black lake was smothered in fog and the magnificent castle stood on the mountain side.
  10. "Feels weird being in these robes" I made the comment to Hermione who just laughed, "Well, it will be a change from blending in with muggles" We were greeted by McGonagall at the top of the stairs and she told us about all about how the houses were to be our families. Neville interrupted her when he spotted Trevor on the floor. Draco was trying to make Harry join his side but was turned down. All he did was ask for a handshake. He pulled me over and was whispering to me again "I'm sorry I have to whisper to you when the lads aren't looking, guess they think you'll be in Gryffindor" He was just whispering to me now "We're ready for you now, follow me" She led us away to the great hall. Albus Dumbledore gave an amazing welcoming speech. We were all lead to the front and it wasn't fun at all. Dumbledore was to stand and warn us about the corridor. The sorting began, Hermione Granger was called up first "Mental that one, I tell you" I hit Ron on his side so he would shut up. Gryffindor began to cheer as she was sorted into them. "Draco Malfoy" Straight away was placed into Slytherin. "Ronald Weasley" He was up next and he flashed Harry and me a look before he walked up. "HA ANOTHER Weasley, I know just what to do with yooou, Gryffindor!" Ron was holding his breath and let it all out as he could now relax. His brothers stood to welcome him to their table. "Harry Potter?" The cheering fell silent as we all looked round at each other. He looked back at me and I told him "The hat takes your choice into account, you'll be fine" He went up and sat in the chair. "Hmmmm Difficult, very difficult. Plenty of courage, not a bad mind either. There's talent oooh yes and a thirst to prove himself but where to put you?" Harry did as I told him and he started to repeat, not Slytherin. "Not Slytherin eeey? You could be great you know and Slytherin could help you, well if you're sure, better be GRYFFINDOR!" Many people began to cheer, I guess they knew the just gained an amazing wizard. "Iris Rivers?" Again everyone fell silent, why would they go silent, I'm only me. My turn. No just please. I didn't want to be in Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff, I wanted to make my father proud but my friends were in Gryffindor. "Ahh you will be a hard one. You have a temper, hmm? Well we need to control this. You're cunning and there's a lot of stubbornness in your mind. Hmmm either Slytherin or Gryffindor seem right for you. We need to put you somewhere, where you're great powers inside will flourish. I see you're Edard's daughter yes? Hmm... you need to belong in a house who won't use you're great powers for the worst. You have a sake's blood though, oh make my job so much harder. Hmmm GRYFFINDOR!" My legs went to Jelly as I joined the others and met the twins as well as Percy their older brother. The feast began and we all began to tuck in. Seamus Finnegan was a half born. His mother was a witch and his father a muggle. Harry was asking about Snape, as the house ghosts thought they'd intrude. Nearly headless Nick was talking to us and showed us his head.
  11. Percy showed us the most direct path to the dormitories "but be careful of the stairs, they do like to change" The stairs led up so high and many of them changed as we followed Percy. The pictures and the paintings were welcoming us as we walked along. The last one was a large woman sitting down and she asked for a password. I have no idea what Percy said but it allowed us into the common room. Percy was getting impatient with how long we took. We went up to our dormitories where our stuff had already been brought up. I couldn't sleep so I sat by the window for most of the night looking out. I left the corridor on the way to the first class something tightened round my waist and pulled me down to the floor, I got up to see...
  12. Urgh Draco and his little crew from the train. As I got up and brushed off the dirt another spell was thrown my way "Everte Statum" This time Draco burst out laughing as I was knocked backwards and hit my head on the wall "What is your problem? I have done nothing to you!" I screamed as his group just laughed. The laughing stopped and suddenly they started walking, speed walking then running towards me. In an instant I got up and started running. I tried to fight back "Flipendo" The group were thrown back but I had to disarm Draco before he could get me before I got away, "Expelliarmus" His wand hit the grass. I ran for as long as I could. I reached the classroom before they had time to bully me again, I took my seat next to Neville and he noticed my eyes were... leaking. He told me he'd listen and if it was Draco being mean I should try to ignore them and maybe even stand up to them. Neville and I were talking when Harry and Ron came sprinting in late "Lucky what if professor had seen us?" As Ron tried to catch his breath. The cat on the desk transfigured into no other then McGonagall herself. Well done to them.
  13. The first full day at Hogwarts and we have a lesson with Professor Snape. Harry complained yesterday at dinner that when he caught the stare from Snape, his scar from Voldemort began to hurt. It just stung. The lesson went.... greeeeat. It.Was.Terrible. He was talking to us about being amazing at potions and was telling how he could help us brew glory. As he was talking Harry was taking notes Snape didn't like him not paying attention. Every question he asked Hermione went to answer the questions. Snape wasn't quite right what so ever. At lunch Seamus was trying to turn water into rum when instead it just blew up in his face. As he did, the mail came in. Owls dropped the small packages off and we all grabbed one every now and then. "Hey look Neville got a remembrall" Dean was looking at him smiling, mainly at the ball. "Ive read about them" Here we go Hermione "When the smoke turns read you've forgotten something" Neville admitted that he was always forgetting things and I answered with "I never remember them afterwards either." Just then my mail fell down and it was a small box wrapped in brown packaging. Harry began to read the paper first so I just put in my pocket. "Someone broke into Gringotts bank. The goblins insist nothing was taken from the vault 713, that's odd. That was the vault Hagrid and I went to." We all were puzzled as to why they would go to that specific vault. I had my hand in my pocket tracing the tape and the string of the box but I was too busy talking to the others so I ignored it.
  14. A flying lesson was finally here. Madam Hooch came over and was walking between the two lines. I stood Hermione with Ron next to her and Harry next to him. "Good Afternoon class, and welcome to your first flying lesson. Now hurry along stand to the left side of your broom and place your right hand over your broom and say 'up' the broom should fly up to your hand. Got it? Good. Now. Go on" Everyone was standing by their brooms hand over and all at once everyone started to say 'up'. Harry's broom as well as Draco's shot up quite fast. Mine straight after. My father taught me how to mount and call my broom but he didn't have time to teach me so I learnt alongside Draco as private lessons at Malfoy Mannor. I knew the basics so when told to mount it, hold tight and kick off I knew what I had to do to fly as well. I turned to see how Ron and Hermione were doing. Ron's broom shot up and hit him on the face. Harry snickered and so did I but Ron just turned to Harry "Harry shut up" Then turned to me with a stern face slightly curving into a smile. "On my whistle I want you to grab tight of your broom, kick off HARD then lean forward slightly. Once completed you must come back down to the ground. Okay, on my whistle" She blew her whistle hard and before anyone else was able to even mount theirs, Neville's broom shot up and suddenly started to throw him around. "Mister Longbottom, control your broom and come down now" Madam Hooch ordered him but he couldn't seem to control it at all and just let out small whimpers as he was thrown around. The broom took Neville up and around the grounds. Through an archway then shot up. The broom slipped from Neville's grasp. He fell to get caught on a spike and a spear. When he realised what had happened, all of us just stared scared he would get hurt. The robes that were keeping Neville from falling tore. He got caught on the next bit down then fell to the floor. He let out a scream as the class gathered around him. "Out of the way!" Madam Hooch called as she pushed past all of the gawping students. "Okay let's get you up" Neville couldn't move and just whimpered as she took hold of him "Ah it's okay just a broken wrist. Let's get you to the infirmary.` No one leaves the ground, am I clear? They will be expelled before they can say Quidditch".
  15. Cheers for reading it will carry on till next time everyone! CHEERS FOR READING! I'll put another one up later as I have literally gone and wrote out EVERYTHING which also means I've wrote everything from book one and the last :3 Peace Out Pumpkin heads
