Sirius' Potion Mistake



The defeat of Voldemort was the highlight of the year. The only big thing after it happened was James, Lily, and Sara actually coming out in public. All of the teachers were happy to see them again. (Except Snape, but he's in Azkaban (A/N: Sorry readers who like Snape)).

After school ended, the Potters, Weasleys, Grangers, and the rest of the Marauders/Maraudettes met up and traveled to Potter Manor for the summer. Remus and Sirius had been right. There was enough room for everyone with room to spare. Hermione spent a good deal of time in the three story library with Remus and Melissa (who, I might add, were not reading). Ron, Harry, Fred, George, Spica, John, Sara, Ginny, James, Sirius, Charlie, and Bill were more interested in the Quidditch field in the backyard. Lily and Molly spent most of their time fixing up a nursery for the baby.

If you want to know the OWL's scores, read Half-Blood Prince. By the end of the summer, John and Sara had gotten married and Sirius and Remus got themselves engaged to Spica and Melissa.

"We can't be left in the dust." Sirius had said to James when the engagements were announced.

As for the Dursleys, they lived a fairly normal life after Harry left. Occasionally, something in their house would be different (walls changing colors). The only clue to the culprits were notes signed, Moony, Mistoffolees, Padfoot, Prongs, Adolpha, Easter, Bushtail, Vixy, Archimedes, Nat, Tiria, Red, Flattail, and Bucktooth.

It was the middle of October during the next school year. Ron and Hermione had a prefect meeting the night of the full moon. So 16 year old Harry Potter and 15 year old Ginny Weasley accompanied Remus on that night. Sara had prepared the Wolfsbane for Remus for the past week. When everyone prepared for the transformation, nothing happened.

The next day,

"Ok Sara? What did you do?" Remus asked her.

"What on Earth could you possibly mean Remus Lupin?" Sara asked innocently.

"Why didn't I transform last night?"

"Oh that. Well, I didn't tell you because I didn't want to get your hopes up, but I think I had discovered a cure for you "condition", so…"

"For once, I'm glad you used the Marauders as guinea pigs." Remus interrupted.

"No problem Moony."

All of a sudden, a head popped into the fireplace.


"Can you two come to my office immediately?" Dumbledore asked the two professors.

"Of course."

After the headmaster's head disappeared, Sara turned to Remus.

"You don't think he knows do you?"

"With Dumbledore, who knows?" Remus answered.

When they flooed to the office, they saw Harry looking extremely anxious.

"What's going on?" Sara asked.

Harry shrugged.

"I had gotten a fire call from James about 15 minutes ago. He wanted you three to go to St. Mungos as soon as possible." Dumbledore informed them.

"Is Mum having the baby?" Harry asked.

Dumbledore nodded.

"What are we waiting for?" Remus asked.

Five minutes later,

James was pacing in the waiting room. Lily had been threatening him with his life in the delivery room, so he felt it was probably safer outside with the others.

"Don't you just love déjà vu?" Sirius teased.

"Shut up." James replied.

"Is everything ok?" Remus asked as the two professors and student entered.

"Yes." John answered. "James' life was just threatened again."

"I missed the kick-out?" Sara asked.

James gave her a look.

"I'm going to go check on Lily." She announced noticing the look.

After she left, Harry and Remus made themselves comfortable. Remus sat next to John and Harry sat next to Sirius.

About two hours later,

"Mr. Potter?" a healer came out.

"Is she alright?" James asked.

"Yes. Mother and daughter are fine."

James finally sat down. (He had been pacing the whole time).

"Can we see them?" Harry asked.

"Of course." The healer said.

As they went in, the healer whispered to Harry, "Thank you. You've made the world safer for all of us. Including your sister."

Harry felt himself blush.

"Are you alright Dear?" Lily asked her son as she held the baby.

"Yeah Mum. I'm fine." Harry answered. "Is that her?"

Lily nodded.

"She looks like a Megan." James said.

"Just as long as she doesn't look like a Petunia." Lily joked.

Everyone laughed.

As everyone laughed, Harry looked down on Megan and realized that the laughter had wakened her up. He noticed her hazel eyes that she inherited from her father and the red hair that she received from her mother. Harry reached down and caressed her face. That was when Megan grabbed his finger.

It wasn't too long before the Marauders/Maraudettes realized what was going on and watched the two siblings bond.

"I think this will be good for Harry." Melissa whispered to Remus.

Just then, Harry started laughing.

"What's so funny?" James asked.

"I just realized something. With everyone getting married, and then in eleven-twelve years…."

"I feel so sorry for the teachers at the time." Lily laughed.

Harry quickly stopped laughing. He had lately been reconsidering his plan to become an Auror. He had been talking to some teachers and his friends lately, and figured it would probably be better to become a teacher. As long as it wasn't Devinations. That way, if another Dark Lord was to arise, the future generation would be ready. Besides, with the recent downfall of Voldemort, the Auror department was getting a little crowded. However, he had yet to announce his change in occupation.

While the adults were laughing at the new joke, Harry looked down to his sister.

"Don't you dare give me trouble in school Megan Lily Potter." He whispered.
