Sirius' Potion Mistake

Harry’s Earlier Idea and Sara

Chapter 24: Harry's Earlier Idea and Sara

A/N: before I get started on the actual story, let me clarify something in the title. If you remember in chapter 22, Harry gets an idea after Hermione suggested he doubled the potion. Well, the idea is revealed in this chapter.

It was midnight on Christmas. John had spent the day getting to know Harry and Co. All of the adults involved with the Marauder/ettes were planning the Beginning of the Second Term Prank. They didn't tell the kids because this prank wasn't going to be just for Snape and the Slytherins. They were going to involve the WHOLE school. However, Harry, Ron, and Hermione had their own plans.

"Do you have the Dragon Blood, Ron?" Hermione asked.

"Right here." Ron said taking off the invisibility cloak holding a large vial of a thick red substance.

"How about you Harry? Do you have the measuring spoons?" Hermione asked her other friend.

"Yep. Dobby offered the entire kitchen. But I managed to convince him to just let me borrow the spoons." Harry answered.

"Hey Harry. I have an idea. When you get a place of your own, why don't you just hire Dobby?" Ron suggested.

Hermione scowled at him.

"What? He has the money to pay him." Ron defended himself when he noticed the look on Hermione's face.

"I suppose if he pays him." Hermione said. "Anyways, we better get back to work. It's the moment of truth."

"Harry. Why don't you do the honors?" Ron suggested.

"Alright. Ron, you keep lookout. If there's an explosion, someone's bound to wake up." Harry took charge.

"Yes Sir." Ron saluted and went to the door.

"Hermione. Would you poor the blood into the spoon?"

"Gladly." She said as she opened the vial

Ron watched his two friends as they prepared the potion. He was blocking the door, so with his height, if anyone was to come, the others would be able to hide.

"Harry? Are you sure you want this? I mean, now there is no competition for…" Ron started.

"I'm sure Ron. Besides, my crush on her is gone." Harry told him

Harry held the spoon as Hermione poured the blood into it. When she was finished, she took a few steps back. Then, Harry poured the last ingredient into the cauldron.


(A/N: This is a perfect stopping point. However, I won't put you through that torture)

The girl's bathroom filled with smoke and the potion overflowed onto the floor. Harry, and Hermione were coughing and Ron had his head stuck out into the fresh air using the excuse he was looking for intruders.

"Maybe we should have done this in the Chamber of…" Hermione said

"NO!" Both boys yelled.

With a wave of her wand, Hermione cleared the smoke to reveal two bodies. One was the body of a woman roughly the Marauders/Maraudette's age. She was thin and had long blond hair. If her eyes were open, then they would have seen piecing blue eyes. The other one was a boy about 18 years old and to most girls, was extraordinarily handsome. (HINT: He basically looked like Robert Pattinson)

"Is that her?" Harry asked looking at the woman. He already knew the boy was who he wanted to bring back.

"I suppose." Hermione said.

"Would you believe NOBODY'S coming?" Ron asked from the door.

Just then, Sara Montgomery stirred.

"W-What happened?" she asked as she opened her eyes and got a good look around the room. "And why in the world am I in Moaning Myrtle's bathroom?"

All of a sudden, she realized she wasn't alone.

"James? I thought you were… Wait. What in bloody hell are YOU doing in Myrtle's bathroom?" Sara asked Harry.

"I'm not James." Harry explained.

"Harry? The last time I saw you, you were only a baby learning how to walk and talk." Sara said standing up. "And I see you also have some friends."

"Yes. This is Hermione Granger and the redhead over by the door is Ron Weasley." Harry introduced his friends.

"Weasley? One of Arthur's and Molly's kids?" She asked when the boy started to stir.

"Yep." Ron answered.

"Ouch. What hit me?" The once dead boy asked.

"The killing curse." Harry told him.

"Harry?" the boy asked before looking around.

"Care to explain why we're in the girl's bathroom?" he asked.

"Would you have rather woken up in the Chamber of Secrets, Cedric?" Hermione asked him.

"Good point Hermione." Cedric Diggory said getting up.

"How would we have gotten to the Chamber of Secrets?" Sara asked.

"Oh. Well, Harry is a mmph." Ron said before Harry went over to cover his mouth.

"Well, I brought the cloak just in case we get caught. I'll explain everything later. For now, let's just get to the Gryffindor Common Room." Harry said.

"I should have known you'd inherit James' old cloak" Sara said


When they got up to the common room, the twins had decided to camp out there for the night so the gang decided to move someplace else.

Up in the boys' dorm, Harry, Ron, and Hermione were explaining everything to Sara and Cedric. Since they had "died" pretty recently, they already knew most of it. However,

"John's here?" She asked.

The three younger kids nodded.

"I haven't seen him since graduation." She said half to herself.

"Well, you'll see him tomorrow." Hermione said

"It's 2:00 A.M. We better get to bed." Harry said.

"Since it's just us, we'll sleep in here and charm the beds so no boys can disturb our beauty sleep." Hermione said.

"How long were you planning on sleeping? 10 years?" Ron asked

The reply was two pillows to the face.
