Soulmate Potion

The Rules

The war had been over for a few months now, ironic that the day Lord Voldemort died was only minutes before the New Year, which many believed to be a good omen. Peter Pettigrew had betrayed his master and given Harry the last needed Horcrux before he, with the support of his friends and enemies defeated Voldemort once and for all. During the war, Harry discovered why it was Dumbledore had trusted Snape so, and also a side of Draco Malfoy that he never knew existed. Had he known how truly evil Lucious Malfoy was, he never would have been so bad to Draco all these years.

So the beginning of the New Year meant more than it ever had before. A life of peace, healing, finding new friendships where once there were bitter enemies and finally being able to live a normal life. Harry and the others were back in school, including Draco and Severus Snape, although Snape would have to leave every now and then to deal with the Ministry. Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff were battling it out for the House and Quidditch cups. Many Slytherins had transferred schools or gone missing when their Death Eater families went on the run, or were arrested. Pansy, Crabbe, and Goyle were transferred, and Blaise has been missing since before Christmas.

It was a beautiful spring day in early May, and everyone was excited about the upcoming event for the 7th years. Every year in spring, only a few weeks before the end of the year, but after N.E.W.T.S, those 7th years who wished to participate would head to the dungeons and brew the Soulmate Potion. A potion that would show the maker/drinker who their soulmate or mates were. The potion was simple to make, though some of the ingredients were very rare, so only those who were serious about taking it was allowed to make it. Usually only about half the 7th years would participate, and most of them were typically girls.

"So Hermione, you going to make your Soulmate potion?" Lavender Brown asked looking down at Hermione who was sitting in her favorite chair before the fire reading a book.

"I don't need a potion to pin point who I should spend the rest of my life with," Hermione said without looking up.

"Oh don't bother with her, she's so independent she's probably a Complete." Pravati said as the girls went to find a seat.

"What's a complete?" a familiar voice asked from behind her. She looked back and found Harry and Ron walking around to join her.

Just then, Professor McGonagall had come in, and asked the students to quiet down. It was only the 7th years, as the rest were in the Great Hall having their dinner. Each house of the same year was taking their dinners in tonight, to be told of the upcoming event.

"It is said, that Aristophanes states that humans originally consisted of four arms, four legs, and a single head made of two faces, but Zeus feared their power and split them all in half, condemning them to spend their lives searching for the other half to complete them. Later a Roman Witch, Caedicia Etruscilla created a potion that would help one identifies their soul mate. She believed that even if we don't think our soulmate fits perfectly into our lives, they fit perfectly within our hearts. Now there are three types of souls, the most common are the ones that are split into two, two halves of a soul or heart. The more uncommon is what we call a Complete Soul, these people don't need another to make them feel complete or whole, and if they do get into a relationship, it's best with another Complete Soul or with someone who has lost their soul mate early in life. The third is even more rare, but not unheard of. It's when the soul has been divided into three pieces,"

"A Love Triangle" Seamus said with a laugh.

"Yes, Mr. Finnigan, a Love Triangle, or more accurately a TriSoul. A person who shares their soul with two others. When two of the souls find each other they won't be totally complete until all three are united."

"Three?" Harry wondered out loud, "But wouldn't that mean that at least two of them are the same gender?" he asked.

"At least two," it was Ron who spoke up this time.

"Soulmates are not restricted to gender, color, class, bloodline or anything Mr. Potter"

"Yeah, even age. I heard that's how Madam Hooch and her young husband found each other, he's at least 17 years younger" Ron continued.

"He's only 10 years younger Mr. Weasley, don't exaggerate" Mrs. McGonagall corrected.

"But still, can you image waiting 10 years to find your soulmate?" Ron asked looking stricken with the thought.

"I heard as soon as you find your soulmate, you'll start making out and ..."

"Enough Miss Brown!" McGonagall loudly said. "You will simply know who your mate is by a faint glow. And yes, you may at first feel a compelling desire to be near them, but that doesn't mean you go off snogging into the sunset. Anyone with enough self control can refrain from molesting their soulmate at first sight. Especially if they happen to be underage." She gave the group a stern look.

"What if they're 10 years younger?" Dean asked.

"Then you will know, but the physical need won't come into effect unless they are 16 or older, AND law states you are not allowed to pursue them until they are of age, is that clear?"

Many nods, and 'yeses' went around the room.

"Will you fall in love with your soulmate as soon as you see them?" Parvati asked sneaking glances over at Seamus who was trying not to look in her direction.

"No, the first time you see them, you will be drawn to them, but it does not affect how you feel. You have to come to love them on your own." She could see the disappointed look on Parvati's face "But, knowing who your soulmate is, does help with getting it started."

Professor McGonagall finished up with questions from other students before informing them when classes would take place.

"So are you going to brew the potion Hermione?" Harry asked. This whole idea was making him a bit nervous and he wasn't sure if he was going to make one or not.

"I ... I don't know. I think I want to, but ... Oh I don't know!" she said tossing her hands up.

"What bout you Ron?" Harry said turning to his best mate.

"Eh, probably, I mean it worked for Mum and Dad right?" he said with a half smile, but Harry could see a hint of fear in his eyes.
