Hello there! i have never done this before so i thought i would have a go. Please leave me some feedback so i know how you like the story so far. Please leave your suggestions aswell!
"What is it, Wormtail?" Asked Voldermort as he saw the silver hand of Peter Pettigrew enter the room.
"It is an owl from Snape, he has sent news on the Malfoy boys mission, he failed to kill Dumbledore."
"Don't worry my lord, there is other news. Snape did it! HE murdered Albus Dumbledore!!"
"Snape? Why did he do this? I know cannot shame Lucius for his mistake, i cannot murder the Malfoy boy. But then again i shall have to reward Snape. He has done the task many would die for. In my new world ruled by me, he will be my right hand man!"
"But my Lord, cannot i have a reward i am still the only one who came back to you and helped you back to strength" Wormtail muttered. Straight away he wished he hadn't. Voldemort turned to him and eyed him with the red cat like pupils.
"How many times do i have to tell you this? You came back to me out of fear not loyalty. I have had enough of your wimpering. I am going to do what i should have done a long time ago." He pulled out a thin wand and shouted "Avada Kedavra" A jet of green light sped from his wand, there was a rushing sound. And then it stopped, Wormtail was lying on the ground eyes wide, clearly dead.
Voldemort turned and walked over to his chair by the fire. He settled himself comfortably in it and then started talkin in parseltongue to his snake which at his words slid over to the body on the floor and started to devour it like a human would eat beef. Voldemort watched this for a while then turned to the letter which lay on the floor at which used to be Wormtail's feet. He picked it up and read;
I have news on the murder of Dumbledore. Draco failed to kill him even though he had him cornered on the ramparts of the castle. I helped all of your Death Eaters escape except one. The Werewolf, Lupin killed him. I also have news of Dumbledore. He is dead. I killed him personally and do not regret it, there was thirteen years of hate in one curse. You should have heard him pleading for his life, it was absolutely brilliant. I know you didn't want him killed by me so i am sorry for that, master please forgive me. I will return to you as soon as i have hidden the boy from you. I am sorry i had to do this but i had no choice i did an unbreakable vow with his mother which included not letting you murder him.
Your most faithful,
Voldemort read this with interest. Snape had hidden the boy but he didn't see why he hadn't planned to kill the boy. He had other plans for the boy. Ones that were very important. In a instance he decided what to do.
"Bellatrix!" He screamed. A loud pop occured and in front of him stood Bellatrix Lestrange. "Find Snape, I want him here alive"
"Yes, my lord!" And with another loud pop she disapparated and left Voldemort alone, with nothing to do except read Snapes letter. This he did, over and over trying to see some hidden message in the between the lines to suggest where he had hidden the boy. He needed him desperately. It might lead to his death but it would make Voldemort one step closer to catching the so called 'Chosen One'. The boy named Harry Potter.
Well that is the first chapter hoped you enjoyed it. Leave some feedback. I love to know what you guys are thinking. Please excuse my awful grammar. I am not brilliant with it. Click here (http://www.cosforums.com/showthread.php?t=89286) for feedback.

Here is the second chapter of my version of the next book. Please send more feedback. I need ideas.
Harry Potter woke over 400 miles away from the scene where Voldemort had murdered Wormtail. It would soon be his birthday it was nearing midnight now. As soon as it turned his birthday he had to leave the house of Number Four, Privet Drive because the protection the house offered would end on his seventeenth birthday. He packed his trunk full of all his possesions he had ever owned and he bolted it shut. He pulled out his wand with only twenty seconds of his protection left. 5...4....3.....2......1....... He had to leave now or never.
He strode out of his bedroom dragging his trunk and went down the stairs with a clunk on every step. He walked across the hall then exited through the front door. He walked to the pavement then concentrated with all his might. With a loud pop he disappear. He felt the fimiliar sensation of being pulled through a rubber tube then it all stopped. He was standin in front of a ricketty run-down old house. He loved the burrow so much that he was glad to be back at it.
He took one step just to know something was wrong he turned around just in time to see someone send a stunner at him. He shouted "PROTEGO" and sheilded himself from the stunner. Then he wordlessly sent a stunner back at the assailant. It caught him in the stomach and he toppeled over clearly knocked out by the force of Harry's spell. Harry had just begun to take a step towards the person when he heard a voice from behind him.
"HARRY, DON'T MOVE!" Harry saw Mr.Weasley's red hair rush past and stand over the motionless body. Harry saw him pull a mask away and then make a big gasping sound. Harry hurried over and saw the face of an motionless Percy Weasley looking back at him. "Enervate" Whispered Mr.Weasley and watched as Percy came round. The moment he was properly awake Harry knew that he was under the imperius curse. Mr.Weasley made no movement and just watched his son sitting there not realising anything was wrong.
"MR.WE-" Harry started but too late.
"AVADA KEDAVRA!" Shouted Percy. A jet of green light came from Percy's wand and there was a rushing sound as Mr.Weasley lay crumpled on the ground, Percy standing over him. Harry could not think of anything to do except think LEVICORPUS and flick his wand. Percy was dangling by his ankle in midair.
"Expelliamus" Harry said and he caught Percy's wand. He heard screaming behind him but did not notice it. He was trying to save Mr.Weasley. If only he could. He turned round and saw Mrs.Weasley, Ginny and Hermione running towards him crying. They had seen Mr.Weasley dead on the floor. Percy hanging in midair and Harry crouched low over Mr.Weasley trying to revive him. Tears were rolling down his face but he did not care. Why had he come here?
Ron and Bill helped Harry back into the house while the girls were mourning over Mr.Weasley. "It wasn't your fault, Harry!" they kept telling him but he new it really was.
This was his worst birthday ever.
April 30th, 2006, 3:33 pm
I'm sorry the last two posts have been so short but this one should be longer! Its Bill and Fleurs wedding!
It was the morning after Harry's arrival and Mr.Weasley's death. There was a sullen mood in the kitchen when Harry walked. He looked around and saw the Weasley's, Fleur Delacour and Hermione Granger all sat at the table eating breakfast. Mrs.Weasley's eyes looked red and swollen like she had been crying all night. Harry could not blame her how could she not after watchin her husband being murdered on her doorstep by one of her own sons.
Since then Percy had been arrested and taken into the ministry of magic for questioning by the aurors there. They had done the counter-curse for the imperius curse but not been able to get any straight answer out of him. He seemed struck speechless. They had sent him to St.Mungo's but they still hadn't found a way to help as of yet.
Bill, who had finally recocered from his ordeal with Frenrir Greyback, smiled at Harry as he entered. His face was now badly scarred and bore a strange resemblance to Mad-Eye Moody, the notoriusly paranoid ex-auror. It was only two days till his and Fleur's wedding. They planned to celebrate it at the burrow instead of risking having a wedding out in the open as it would be a perfect attack for Voldemort to launch. He had no love in him. None at all. He would deystroy something as emotional as a funeral or wedding just to get his way in the plans that were laid out in front of him already in motion.. There had been quite a few violent murders and mass muggle killings in the news but none of them was as horrible as what happened to Tiberus Odgen and his family.
They were tortured until insanity and then killed right infront of the ministry of magic officials as they arrived at the house. Then a violent duel developed outside the residence until everyone of the ministry response group was dead. There was a definate gloom about this as they knew who was behind it. One woman by the name of Bellatrix Lestrange and two men by the names of Antonin Dolohov and no other than the hated werewolf Fenrir Greyback. He hadn't even bothered using his wand. He had attacked without mercy and now alll of them people were dead.
While Harry was thinking about this grusome act of horror he didn't notice all of the people around him starting to move. "Where are you going?" he shouted quite suddenly.
"We've got to get dress robes for the wedding, are you coming along?" answered Ron.
"Nah, i'm going to stay here, my dress robes still fit me, i do not need new ones."
"I don't really either!" Stated Ron turning to his mother. "Mum?? Do I have to come?" He smiled at his mother as she shook her head.
"I'll keep you company too!" Hermione told them. "I don't need to go to diagon alley. I would love to go but i have better things to do with my time." Harry, Ron and Hermione watched as the crowd of people standing by the fire one-by-one stepped into the emerald green flames and disappeared. Soon they were left on there own and they looked at each other.
"Right" Said Harry. "Lets get down to business. Did you research the fidelus charm like i asked you to, Hermione?" Turning to look at the bushy-haired girl. She smiled mischeiviosly.
"Course i did! Apparently only the secret keeper can tell people where the thing that is being guarded is. There is only two other ways you can get the information. Firstly if you see the name of the place or object written down by the secret keeper, OR, the secret keeper dies."
"Well we know Wormtail is alive so that leaves the first option but who would know where the house is?" Harry said. This confused the three of them and they sat in silence for quite some time in the small lounge. "Well we will figure that out later but there is one thing i want to say."
"Spit it out then!" Said Ron speaking for the first time since the conversation had begun.
"You do realise we have to leave the minute the wedding is over?"
"Yes, but why?"
"Voldemort-" Ron fliched as Harry said the name "-will murder us all there if he sees a small chance of me being there. So no one knows I am here except your family. I told the ministry that i was going to sussex to do some shopping!"
"And they believed you?" Quizzed Hermione. "They actually think that?"
"Of course not, but what else was i supposed to say? Yeah, I'm going to search for Voldemort?" Ron took another deep intake of breath. "Oh, for heavens sake grow up, Ron! It's just a stupid name, nothing to be scared of!"
Twenty-four hours later it was Bill's stag-night. All of the lads sat at home drinking fire-whisky and telling tales of all the great adventures they had been on. By the end of the night it was gettin quite rediculose and every once in a while one of them would shout a random thing like "I flew to the moon and back on a comet 360!" or "I'm about to become the youngest minister of magic, I am!"
Harry woke with a start the next morning to see the clock said 10:34. It was only an hour and a half till the wedding! "GUYS GET UP!" He shouted across the room. They all jumped and rather sluggishly started to get ready for the wedding. Soon they were all dressed in dress robes and clearing up the mess from the night before.
Charlie, who had arrived for the wedding late last night, went outside to get the setting for the wedding ready while Bill straightened his tie. "You ready for this?" Harry asked him.
He answered with a smile "I always have been and always will be!" He erupted into a contegeus laughter that everyone joined in with. Soon Bill was stood by the altar and ready to be married. Harry turned just in time to see Fleur walking up the aisle to the wedding march. She was followed by Ginny and Fleur's sister, Gabrielle. Harry noticed that she was eyeing him hopefully. He smiled to himself.
The wedding went very smoothly with the best bit being Ron's speech which he had to make as best man. It was hilarious, Harry thought personally. When the wedding was nearing its end, Harry foound himself at the edge of the party. There he met Ron and Hermione, who both looked rather sheepish. "Where have you been?" He asked them.
"Err-" Ron looked lost for words.
"Saying goodbye. Ready to go?" Hermione said. Harry knew this wasn't the real reason but he didn't make any futher attempt to find out what they had been up to. He had a shrewd idea though, one he didn't plan to tell anyone.
"Yeah" He turned and looked at the crowd there, waved to Ginny and Gabrielle who waved back, then with a swish of a cloak, him, Ron and Hermione disapparated with a loud pop.

Harry arrived in the middle of a square that clearly hadn't been looked after very well. Ahead of him he could see a row of houses but the odd thing about these houses was the fact there was a number missing. It went Number 10, 11, 13. Strange as it was, Harry wasn't bothered by it. He thought of the peice of paper that Mad-Eye Moody had shown him almost two years ago to the day.
Then all of a sudden in between Numbers 11 and 13 another house appeared. First a battered door, then some dirty walls and a couple of broken windows. He walked up to the door and tapped it with his wand. There was a number of mettalic clicks and then the door creaked open. He stepped inside and sealed the door from the inside. The first thing he saw when he stepped inside was a definate change in decour. Two years earlier there had been decapitated house-elf heads on the wall and grimey walls. There had been a need to whisper every time you were in the hall as there was a pair of moth-eaten velvet curtains covered the portrait of his godfather's mother. Now there was none of these things to see and the walls had been painted a bright orange. It felt good to finally be in this house when it was cleaned up. Especially as it was his house. It was brilliant to be back at Number 12 Grimmauld Place.
"Harry! Where have you been. Me and Ron have been worried sick about you. Lupin wouldn't let us come find you. We got here about an hour ago where have you been?" Harry looked up to see Hermione rushing down the stairs followed slowly by Ron. "Well, are you going to say anything?" Hermione continued.
"It doesn't matter right now." Harry told them as he watched Remus Lupin emerge from below in the kitchen.
"Harry, how are you?" Lupin asked. He was still quite young but looked more ill and tired than Harry had ever seen him. He had quite grey hair but with a hint of brown in it.
"I'm fine thank-you. But what are you doin here? Weren't you with the Werewolves?" Harry asked, staring into Lupins grey eyes. When Harry asked this he looked sad and turned away from them.
"They found out I was in league with Dumbledore. They found out when i helped defend the castle. Of course Greyback naturally told all of the Werewolves and now they all want me dead. It means I have to hide out like Sirius did. I've begun to realise how difficult it was for him to stay here for very long." He started to walk away from them. "I'm now the Death-Eaters main target. They want to get rid of the last maruader!" And with that he walked of up the stairs. Harry gestured to the other two to follow him down into the kictchen. They walked down in silence and the moment they were there Ron and Hermione continued to bombard Harry with questions about where he had been.
"Okay, okay, I'll tell you. I was thinking about what you said about the Fidelius charm and I went to someone who defiantly knows where Godric's Hollow is." Harry told them how he had been to visit Hagrid and got a small slip of parchment from them he now showed it to them. It was in the scruffiest handwriting ever but it said this;
'The Potter's can be found at Godric's Hollow in Little Hangleton. This information has been given to you by their secret keeper.'
They stared at this for a while until Hermione said "Little Hangleton? I've heard of it before. If only I could think where!" She looked really upset. "I'll just go look-" She started to get up but Harry stopped her.
"You don't need to look anywhere! I know exactly where Little Hangleton is! I went to it in the pensieve with Dumbledore. Its where Voldemorts parents live. And his grandparents too!" He smiled nervously as Ron jumped at the name. He then stood up and said "We should probably get some sleep, its a long day ahead of us tomorrow!" And he walked off up the stairs. As he passed where the portrait used to be, he thought of how his parents and his godfather would feel if they could see him now. Going off to fight Voldemort and deystroy him once and for all.
He went up to Sirius' room and layed down on the bed. Tomorrow, he thought, I will see where i was born. He smiled and sleep rolled over him.
May 1st, 2006, 6:03 pm
Well i have finally decided how many chapters i will post and how often. I will try post 5 chapters every weekend. I won't manage it every weekend as i have other stuff to do. So here is the last chapter for this weekend.
Harry woke up the next morning totally refreshed. He looked around Sirius' room. It had obviously been redecorated since Sirius' was here as everything looked so new. He was serching around the desk when he noticed the cabinet on the other side of the bed. He was so suprised he hadn't seen it before as there was a massive lock on it. Harry wondered what his godfather wanted to keep so secret and locked up. He drew out his wand and thought Alohomora. It didn't work. He swore out loud. There was only one thing he could do. He pointed his wand at the cabinet and shouted "REDUCTO!"
There was a loud bang as the cabinet dissolved into nothing. Harry searched around the rubble on the floor and he found several things. He was shocked at what he found. There was a wand, cloak, a death eater mask and, the one thing Harry had been longing to find ever since the night Dumbledore died, Slytherin's locket.
Then in that second the whole note that he had found inside the fake Horcrux made sense. Harry also knew who was responsible for taking the real locket. It was so obvious now. It had to be Regulus, Sirius' brother. Harry didn't know why he had been killed but he was sure it had something to do with the Horcrux. That meant Sirius' looked after this. He could have just given it to Dumbledore. Why hadn't he?
Harry rushed into the kitchen ten minutes later and found,to his delight, Ron and Hermione sitting waiting for him. "Harry! Good mor-"
"I found one!" Harry shouted as he sat down and chucked the Horcrux across the table. "It was in this house all along!"
"And I thought they were going to be hard to find!" Said Ron as he punched the air.
"The rest will. This was just luck. I rekon we will find it hard finding the rest." Said Hermione glumly.
"Stop being such a spoil-sport!" This erupted into a full scale argument that Harry could not be bothered to stop. He was thinking about the Horcruxes and all of the other things he had to think about. He sat in thought for a while until Ron and Hermione had finally stopped arguing. "Shall we go then?" asked Ron looking hopefull.
"Yeah but if any point you want to back out feel free to." Harry told them.
"We're with you till the end!" They said in unison.
"Right, this is our rendevous point if any of us get lost. Just come back here and stay here. Don't go looking for others." Harry started to walk to the door. "Coming?"
Harry got his invisibility cloak out of the bag that Mrs.Weasley had sent to him. Soon he was standing inside the door with Hermione and Ron. He tapped the door with his wand which opened it. They scrambled outside into the sleet. It was good for them as they were less likely to be spotted apparating in this kind of weather.
He looked at the other two and nodded. "We're going to have to use side-along apparation as you two don't know where you are going. Grab one of my arms and hold on very tightly."
He turned on the spot and dissapeared with a loud pop. He then arrived in the middle of a road next to a signpost. There was high hedges on either side. The signpost read 'Great Hangleton-5miles' and pointing the other way 'Little Hangleton-1 mile'. Harry set off on a brisk walk towards Little Hangleton. Soon he was entering the village and he was looking all around for a sign of the house he had lived in 17 years ago.
"Harry!" Shouted Hermione, pointed at a derelict house to their left. Its roof had caved in, the walls were half crushed and all the windows were smashed. Harry looked at his home with the greatest happiness he had ever. He stared for over 5 minutes at the house and he was just lost for words. He started to wander towards it. He opened the gate and suddenly his scar hurt terribly and he collapsed on the floor. He could feel the Horcrux in his pocket. It was burning at a white-hot temperature. As suddenly as it had started it stopped then he heard a voice from behind him.
"Give up, Potter!" He heard the sneer of Lucius Malfoy as he turned round to face at least 10 Death-Eaters, all of their wands pointing at him. "Give up and come see the Dark Lord and no-one gets hurt."
Well thats all for now. I'll post the next chapter soon.
May 5th, 2006, 9:26 pm
Well here goes the next chapter of my story!
Harry looked at all of the Death-Eaters standing there pointing their wands at him, Ron and Hermione. "Don't try fight your way out, you have no chance! You will die along with your friends if you do!" Said the voice of Lucius Malfoy from underneath the nearest mask. Harry knew he was right. He put his hand in his pocket and clutched the old mirror in there. He drew his wand.
"Well we will have to die then!" Harry shouted and sent a stunner towards the Death-Eaters. He ducked behind the fence and spoke into the mirror that had been in his pocket. "Moony send some of the Order to Godrics Hollow. Death-Eaters are attacking us!"
Harry then sent a full-body bind at a Death-Eater that had been running directly at him. The Death-Eater fell over. He was now rigid like a board. "Harry, there is too many!" He heard Hermione's voice scream of the sound of spells rushing around. Then all of a sudden there was a series of loud pops behind Harry. He spun round to see Tonks, Mad-Eye and Kingsley there already raining spells on the Death-Eaters.
"Retreat, I say, retreat. The Dark Lord will not be happy if we get ourselves captured by the enemy!" Malfoy shouted over the din. There was a number of loud pops and they were all gone. Harry turned round to face the members of the order who had come to help them.
"Thanks guys! I had no idea that they would know where i was going. I'll try to be more carefull in the future." He watched them nod and one by one they dissaparated. He now felt lonely; he had no idea why. After all he still had Ron and Hermione with him. Harry turned and walked towards the door of Godrics Hollow. He pushed the door, which was half off its hinges, open and smiled as he saw the place where his life had started. There was not much stuff left except a few pictures left on the walls. He walked over to the nearest wall and saw his own face, but seventeen years younger, looking back at him. He grinned again. He had never felt so at peace in his entire life.
"Harry...its wonderful!" Said Hermione, her face in a wide smile. She walked over to the bookcase and started to look at all the magic books there was there. "Its a suprise the ministry didn't come clean this up," she continued frowning.
"Well, they wouldn't be able to find it because of the Fidelus charm, they would only be able to find it if Pettigrew told them which he was unlikely to do." Said Harry. who was now looking at something he had seen on the floor. He bent down and picked up a wand. He felt pride as he knew that this wand had been used to try protect him by his father. He pocketed it and started rummaging round in the draws. Meanwhile, Ron was walking round the room looking at all the possesions the Potters had ever owned.
"How come your parents were so rich then, Harry?" Ron asked turning to face Harry for the first time since they had entered the house. He started rummaging inside the draws that Harry had just searched. But Harry had found what he had wanted. He turned and placed on the wall a cracked foe-glass. He turned to the other two and gave a small cough.
"Check this often. This our base of operation 'Find the Horcruxes'. We are staying here for a while, then we will start our search. Make yourself comfy!" He turned and walked up the stairs to find somewhere to sleep.
I know this isn't very long. I am having a slight writers block. I'll be back on track soon.
May 8th, 2006, 6:58 pm
I have still got serious writers block so haven't managed to write 5 chapters this weekend. I'll try make up for it though. Heres chapter seven.
Harry woke next morning feeling quite as cheerful as he had the previous night. It took him a while to realise why he was cheerful and where he was. Then he remembered that he was in his parents house, where he had been born. The evening before he had had a good look around the house. He had found nothing apart from the things he had found in the bit he had searched first.
He had found his father's wand and a cracked foe-glass. These things he felt were very important to him and he needed them for his fight against Voldemort. He also wanted to find one other thing before he left this house again. He wanted to find his mother's wand, something he had never seen before. After all he had already seen his father's wand in the pensieve when he had looked at Snape's worst memory. Just thinking about Snape made him boil up with hatred.
He wandered slowly down the half broken stairs to find that the smell of bacon reached his nostrils. He walked into the kitchen, expecting to see Hermione cooking, but, to his suprise he found Ron looking extremely uncomfortable. "What are you doing?" Harry asked, trying not to laugh.
"Err....I....erm.....I was hungry!" Ron said, his ears now turning red. Harry noticed that there wasn't only bacon being cooked by Ron, but there was what looked like a full English breakfast.
"So, how come you know how to cook?"Harry asked, now a massive grin spread over his face. Harry was so suprised by this latest suprise that was all he could say.
"My mum taught me as soon as i could talk. It's a Weasley family tradition. Even Fred and George know how to, even though they wouldn't admit they do." He said this very quickly without looking at Harry.
Soon, as Harry had guessed there was a full english breakfast on the table. Hermione joined Ron and Harry, some ten minutes later and they talked about stuff totally unrelated to Harry's task. Harry suddenly got the feeling that he usually got when he walked in the front doors of Hogwarts. He had got the feeling of finally being home. Soon however that feeling dissappeared as their topic for discussion moved onto Harry's task of finding the Horcruxes and deystroying them.
"The problem will be more a task of deystroying them than findng them, I mean i cannot find a passage in the book anywhere about Horcruxes or deystroying them. It might be near impossible," Hermione said, looking at Harry, "Have you had any ideas?"
"Well i thought we would start our search in the places where Voldemort has a special connection to. At the moment, I have no idea where these places might be but i'll continue thinking about that. As for deystroying them i have absolutely no idea how to do it. Theres only one person who i would think would know how to deystroy them and that person died at the hands of death-eaters, or one death-eater, Snape!" Then Harry launched into a rant about their ex-potions teacher. He continued for quite a while until there was a scream next to him.
"What?" Harry asked anxiously.
"Harry, I just thought......Well what if there was a way to still contact him, what if we used the-" Hermione started.
"-potrait of him in the headmasters office at Hogwarts," Finished Ron. The other two stared at him, "What? I've been thinking about that since Harry told us about it after his meeting with McGonagall." He laughed at the look on Hermione's face as it looked stunned that Ron had actually fully thought about something.
"Well what i think is that we should have a couple of days lying low here, then, we search for the Horcruxes. After we have found them all except the snake we go to see the portrait and then deystroy them. Then we go see the snake and the 'dark-lord'" Harry smiled.
They spent the next couple of days relaxing and waiting for Harry to tell them to leave. Harry sometimes snuck out of the house in his invisibility cloak to try get a paper or two so they could see what was going on in the war between the ministry and Voldemort.
When Harry came back from one of these invisible strolls about four nights after their conversation about the Horcruxes, he found Hermione waiting for him by the door. As he entered she started to talk.
"Harry, we have to leave right now and start our journey. While we relax here, innocent people are being killed. Its all about stopping Voldemort. Come on, we have to make a plan."
"Okay, okay. Right," He went and sat on the sofa that was partly falling apart. Ron and Hermione sat opposite on the other sofa. Harry continued, "We firstly need to go back to Grimauld place and find out from Lupin where Voldemort would find special, then we go to any where he tells us and we search thoughroughly everywhere we go for the Horcruxes. We leave tomorrow!" And with that Harry walked off to the room he had made his. As he walked in he suddenly felt like giving up. He fell on his bed and started to weep. But stopped almost straight away, Hermione was right it was all about stopping Voldemort. He had to do it for all the people in both the wizarding world and the muggle one. It was his quest!
May 11th, 2006, 9:38 pm
Next chapter hear. Hope you like it.
Harry woke the next morning refreshed and ready to leave for Grimauld place. As he walked down thebroken stairs the first thing he noticed was that there was a couple of trunks and a familiar red-headed girl standing in the middle of the sitting room.
"Ginny? What do you think you are doing here?" Harry asked angrilly.
"I came to help you, if you don't mind!" Ginny answered brightly.
"Well I do mind! Didn't you listen to what I told you at the end of last term. I told you that you couldn't help me. Your underage and not ready for anything of this grand scale!" Harry found himself shouting.
"Wazzgionon?" Asked Ron as he stumbled down the stairs, closely followed by Hermione. He stopped in his tracks when he saw Ginny standing there.
"Errr- Hi Ron, Hermione," She smiled at them. Ron's ears had begun to glow red, always a danger sign.
"What do you think you are doing here?" Ron asked in a stangley pleasant voice. He looked like he was about to explode at any moment. He drew his wand and walked over to the fire place. "How did you get here?" He continued.
"The Knight Bus!" She answered simply, like it would be quite obvious. "Why are you lighting a fire?" She then asked Ron as he was indeed lighting a fire.
"To send you back to the burrow by floo powder. HAVE YOU NOT THOUGHT WHAT MUM WILL BE DOING AT THIS VERY MOMENT? SHE WILL BE WORRIED SICK JUST BECAUSE FOR ONCE YOU COULDN'T JUST FOLLOW WHAT EVERYONE HAS TOLD YOU FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY! WE HAVE ALL BEEN SAD ABOUT LEAVING YOU BEHIND BUT HARRY WAS RIGHT! YOU ARE UNDERAGE AND THIS IS A GRAND TASK WITH HIGH DANGER LEVEL. I AM NOT LETTING YOU DIE FOR THAT REASON. ITS JUST NOT SANE!" Ron was now breathing rather heavily and seemed to be struggling for breath. "Wait was is your full name?"
"What does that matter?" Ginny asked, looking confused and startled.
"Just answer the question!" Ron said rather calmly now. He drew his wand.
"Errr-Ginny Valerie Weasley?" Ginny said slowly. The moment she had said this Ron wordlessly sent a stunner at Ginny.
"RON-" Harry and Hermione said at the same time.
"Don't worry this ain't Ginny!" Ron cut across them.
"What? Thats just stupid, of course it is!" Said Hermione, frowning at the way Ron had just stunned his own sister.
"Polyjuice potion!" Said Harry as he turned to look at the now motionless 'Ginny'. Then her apperance started to change, until it stopped. He looked at the person layed there and said "I thought so."

Heres the next chapter. hope you like it. Leave some feedback (www.cosforums.com/showthread.php?t=89286). I want to know what you should think happens next.
Harry stared in disgust at the person who he hated most in the world. The person who ten minutes ago he had thought was the person he loved the most. He drew his wand and edged round to get a better look at the limp body on the floor. Bellatrix Lestranges eyes were closed and her wand was on the floor by her side. Harry moved forwards and picked it up. Then he snapped it in half and threw the pieces at his feet. Then he held his wawnd out, pointed it at Lestrange and shouted "Enervate!" Lestrange slowly reawoke and then looked around to see where she was. As her eyes fell on Harry who was pointing his wand at her she reached to her belt expecting to find her wand but finding nothing.
"Wheres my-" She started but at that moment her eyes fell on the snapped remains of her wand on the floor in the dust, "What have you done to my wand, filthy half-blood?" She spat at Harry's feet, who stepped back out of the way of the spit. He looked at disgust at her.
"You should have realised after you killed Sirius that i wasn't going to let you live. But I'm not only going to kill you but I'm actually going to give you a slow painful death. Hermione cast that anti-appiration jinx!" Harry said as Hermione stumbled forward mumbling an incantation under her breath.
"I've done it, Harry." She said as she retreated out of harms way. She watched on tenterhooks as Harry gathered himself.
Harry retreated across the room and turned. He screamed "CRUCIO!" Bellatrix rolled on the floor in agony as her arm bent behind her back at a angle that was impossible without being forced. Harry flicked his wand and the curse lifted. He looked the writhing body on the floor then slashed his wand and cried "SECTUMSEMPRA!" A big slash appeared on Bellatrix's front and it bled openly. Harry turned and walked towards the door out into the village. "Goodbye, Bellatrix Lestrange." He said over his shoulder and walked out of the door.
"HARRY! We can't just kill her off like that! We could get information from her about the Horcruxes!" Hermione shouted at Harry. Harry turned dumb-struck. He raced back to the house and renched the door open. He went over to Lestrange and started to mutter a strange laguage under his breath which would heal the wounds. He had studied all about this type of thing while stuck in Privet drive for six weeks. As he knelt there healing the wounds Bellatrix finally realised what was happening.
"Why are you saving me, Potter?" She asked with an incredulous look on her face. "Why, I want to know!"
Harry turned having finished the healing and looked into Bellatrix's eyes. "I want to know where the Horcruxes are. Tell me and we wil not harm you in anyway. Don't comply and....well.....you could just wait and find out." He pushed his wand into her throat. "Speak!" He helped her onto a sofa and she began to speak.
"Well, the Dark Lord has figured out that you and Dumbledore have found out about these Horcruxes and are attempting to deystroy them. He knows the fate of three of them but the other three he doesn't know where they are. He is missing a dairy which was deystroyed by you in your second year at Hogwarts. He is missing the ring which he knows that Dumbledore went and found at a certain 'Gaunt' house. The Dark Lord believes that Dumbledore deystroyed it and that got rid of another Horcrux. There is the locket which has dissapeared totally. The Dark Lord doesn't know where this is-" Harry fumbled the locket in his pocket nervously."-but he is determined to find it! Then there is the three he knows where they are. His snake, Nagini, is always with him. Theres Huffelpuffs cup. And there is a item of Ravenclaws."
Harry dug his wand in deeper as he said "What is it? And where are those items?"
"Ravenclaws is a certain book, called Fevavertas statux, and this is in a house in Kent. Voldemort murdered Catchil Kollins there. He made a Horcrux with the book. The Cup is in Albania where the Dark Lord lived for so long when he was no longer in power." She smiled thankfully then death passed over her and she moved away beyond all that is spiritual and physical....
Harry buried Bellatrix in the graveyard next to his parents. She had finally become good and helped Harry in his task of finding the Horcruxes. He now had a good idea where to start his search. But he also know knew another thing. Voldemort was now on the move and collecting his Horcruxes, Harry would have to be quick to beat Voldemort to each one.
Twenty-four hours later after Bellatrix's death, Harry was back at Grimauld place for an Order meeting. Kingsley had just given a report on how the ministry were combatting the threat of Voldemort and getting ready for full out war with the Death-Eaters and all of the rest of Voldemorts followers. It was Harry's turn to speak yet about what he thought Voldemort was planning to do next. As he stood up he realised his legs were shaking violently.
He started to speak "I believe Voldemort is going to be quite quiet for the next few months. He will continue to build his army and find any weapons that could be of use to him. I believe he will then find a place to hide these weapons as at the moment they are not well enough hidden. He will need somewhere really sa-" But Harry had stopped talking. He stood there, mouth agape thinking, where was the safiest place ever?
"'Arr, yo' 'kay?" Asked Hagrid concernely.
"He's going to attack Hogwarts!" Harry told them.

Next chapter here!
Harry stood in the middle of the room trying to understand what he had just said. Voldemort was indeed going to attack Hogwarts because Harry had remembered something that Hagrid had said over six years ago; 'Theres no safer place than Gringotts except perhaps Hogwarts'. Voldemort would take over Hogwarts because it was a secuirity safehold and also it was one of the places that Voldemort found special. Harry knew he had the same kind of connection to that place and if it came to it then he would defend it even if it cost his life. But Voldemorts plan might change if Harry deystroyed all the Horcruxes. They had to make a plan.
"Right, move the army to Hogwarts. Wait, Minerva has it re-opened?" Harry turned to face his ex-teacher.
"Yes we have an extra ministry task force there on the inside as-well as a auror force on the outside." Answered the transfiguration teacher.
"Well, we need to put the whole of our force and the ministry forces in the grounds and hide them. Do this secretly as we do not want Voldemort allerted to what we are doing. Go now, inform the minister to what is happening," Professor McGonagall was gone in a swish of tartan, and Harry continued, "I believe Voldemorts attack will comence in the next week of term. I need to be in and out of the school. I will help defend it while i am there and will have to leave every once in a while to do stuff that will help in the defeat of Voldemort. I want all of the pupils in the school to be heavily defended even if it has to be that each one has a personnel bodyguard. It is now full out war! Meeting dismissed, and remember, CONSTANT VIGILANCE!" He roared in a such a good mimic of Moody.

Here is the rest of Chapter 10 hope you enjoy it leave FEEDBACK (http://www.cosforums.com/showthread.php?t=89286) please i need to know how to continue the story!
Harry felt strange as he walked through the entrance of the entrance hall. He was stood at the front of the order of the Pheonix leading them to thier quaters for the next few months while the war was fought over the enchantments and walls of Hogwarts. Harry tried not to look at the pupils as he entered but saw a few of his friends and others who gaped at him. He was dressed in the sheild cloaks, from Fred and George's shop, which had been given to every member of the army.
Harry heard one little first year squeak "Why is there an army here?" He looked terrified but almost at once he smiled as Harry walked up to him and answered.
"Don't worry this is just for extra security!" he said. He then contiued towards the Divination tower which had kindly been provided for the forces. There was a brilliant veiw over the grounds so they could see anything that would suggest Voldemort was coming. After Harry had breifed the forces he went to have a look around the school which he had missed so much over the time he had spent away from it. He looked at all of the things he had missed so much; the Fat Lady, Griffindor Common Room, The Great Hall, The Prefects Bathroom, all his favourite passages and of course the quidditch pitch. First day after they had arrived he had taken his broom out for a good fly over the pitch. He had enjoyed this emensly because when he flew all his worries seemed to melt away.
One thing that he seemed to have lost was Ginny. He hadn't seen her since he had arrived at Hogwarts but kept looking for her everywhere. He would have looked on the mauraders map but he had given it to her on the eve of Bill and Fleur's wedding saying that she would need it more than he did.
Another pair of people he hadn't seen much of was Ron and Hermione. He had spent so much time planning tactics and war that he couldn't go and talk to them at all. He started feeling lonely and no longer wanted to be involved in the war.
He had been thinking about what Bellatrix had told him the night of her death about where the Horcruxes were. It was the Sunday evening after he had pulled the army into Hogwarts and had decided thathe would leave in the evening and go find this house.
He had asked Hermione to find this house and she had produced the results by the next time he had seen her. They had found the exact place and date of the murder.
Harry was just about to leave the school through the one-eyed witch passage that led to Hogsmeade when a voice behind him said "And where do you think you are going without us." Harry turned around to find himself alone in the corridor.
"Errr......hello?" Harry asked the invisble voice. Then he laughed as Ron pulled Harry's invisibilty cloak off himself and Hermione. Ron threw the cloak to Harry andthen talked.
"You might need this aswell. Well lets go find us a Horcrux." Said Ron walking into the passage grinning. Hermione followed and then eventually Harry followed still with the invisibilty cloak in his hand. He would not have to do this alone and he felt a great weight lift from his heart.
"Launch the first assualt!" whispered Voldemort turning to the primary force. The group of a hundred Dementors and a couple of death-eaters nodded and moved away towards the castle and its outer walls.
Theres the end of the chapter. As i said write some feedback.

Remus Lupin woke at eleven o'clock. It was his turn to be a guard with a couple of the aurors. He pulled on his sheild cloak and got up off the cold sotne floor. He looked around and saw several others there who were going to be on duty with him. He walked to them and said "Okay, Dawlish you patrol the castle with Vakery and Florles. Report back every hour. Hackely, you and Deron guard the doors. I'll watch the grounds from here with Greosn. Go now and let the others get some sleep."
Lupin and the auror that was staying with him moved off towards the window so they could see out into the grounds. Lupin looked around the grounds twice saw nothing and turned to Greosn. "You see anything? I doubt they can get in through the walls, Dumbledore's enchantments will still be on them. But they might find a clever way in like last year."
The auror frowned and turned to Lupin "I don't see anything. Do you reckon that Potter was right about You-Know-Who attacking Hogwarts? Well he defiantly wasn't right about when it would happen. We haven't seen anything this week and i doubt we will. I mean what are the chances of Potter getting the correct time." The auror turned to scan the grounds.
Lupin also turned to the grounds with a rather hurt look on his face "Well I think that Harry is right that Voldemort will attack Hogwarts. Apparently its one of the places Voldemort liked the most and I am guessing that he would like it for his trophy collection," He laughed at his own joke then turned and faced the lake. He started thinking to himself, What if Harry was wrong and while the entire Ministry and Order's armies were protecting Hogwarts, he was doing other terrible stuff elsewhere. It might have been a trick by Voldemort, to plant this thing in Harry's brain and attack other places while they guarded Hogwarts. He turned back to the other side of the grounds.
They must have been there for 2 hours. Twice reports had come in from the other guards patrolling around the school and now Lupin was doubting whether anything was going to happen tonight. He was just about to turn and retire for the night when he heard a sound from beside him.
He turned to see the auror looking down into the ground. "What is it, Greosn?"
"Oh....no!" He pointed down into the grounds. Lupin looked around to see a rolling mist entering the grounds. Lupin didn't need telling but Greosn said anyway "Dementors!" He sighed, drew his wand and turned to wake the Patronus specialist aurors.
Lupin pulled out his wand and sent a patronus down the stairs so the other guards would know what was happening. Then he turned to see about eight aurors hurrying to him. "What is it?" Asked the most senior looking.
"Dementors," He told them, "And lots of them by the looks of it. Our plan. We send down lots of patronus' on them. If they get into the grounds which i don't see how they can then we go down to meet them. Lupin plus all of the aurors each said "Expecto Patronum twice and sent the patronus' down into the grounds to wait for the dementors. Lupin watched apprehensively as he saw shapes emerge from the mist and move towards the walls. Maybe a hundred towering, hooded creatures were advancing unstopped by anything. They reached the walls and, even from the distance Lupin was, he could here a sucking sound and watched helplessly as there was a flight of colours coming from the walls and then the shouts of "REDUCTO!" The wall crumbled like it wasn't as strong as it looked and the hundreds of dementors moved into the castle grounds and met the patronus'. A few dementors were deystroyed but most survived and continued towards the castle.
"Follow me!" Lupin shouted, then turned towards the door, "Greosn, stay here and send another patronus if anything more comes." Lupin hurried out of the room on the tail of the aurors. This couldn't be happening how could dementors penetrate Dumbledore's enchantments on the walls.
Soon they had made it to the front doors to see Hackley and Deron already battling against the dementors and death-eaters.
"Finally, how long do you take to get here?" Asked Hackley, now battling four dementors and a death-eater. He swore as the death-eater sent a killing curse at him then continued his battles.
Three hours later, Lupin finished repairing the wall and started to use some of the most advanced magic he knew on it. They had defeated the dementors eventually. The death-eaters had retreated and escaped unscathed. One of the aurors had died, the auror who had been patrolling. Vakery's family had been informed of his death and how he died valiantly in battle.
I don't think this will end peacefully thought Remus Lupin as he settled down to sleep. Please hurry up Harry
Well, thier defence is pretty solid thought Voldemort, lets see how the handle something a bit BIGGER. He laughed to himself.

Here comes the next chapter. Leave feedback by clicking on the link at the end of the last chapter.
Harry climbled out of the trapdoor that led into Honeydukes from the passage out of Hogwarts. He sneaked after Ron and Hermione who were already at the door of the shop trying to unlock the door. He got in range of hearring distance of the pair to hear Ron saying "It just won't budge!"
"Move over! Alohomora!" Said Hermione pointing her wand at the door. She then lent against the door. She stood for a moment then gave up. "It must have extra protection against it so Voldemort doesn't get in this way."
Harry frowned then pulling out his wand pointed it at the stairway and muttered "Muffliato!" He then moved to the door told Ron and Hermione to get out of the way and said "Sectumsempra!" A large crack appeared in the glass and then the whole sheet of glass fell away. They all clambered through and then on the other side Hermione repaired the glass without saying anything.
"I still don't know how you can do any spell non-verbally. I mean its almost impossible for me. Harry can only do defense-against-the-dark-arts spells non-verbally, why can you do any?" Asked Ron, giving Hermione an accusoroty stare like it was her fault he couldn't do non-verbal spells.
"You lack the brain capacity. You just have to be able to think of the spell in a really strong way. Harry can do DADA spells really well because its what his life is about. And I-"
"Have a really big brain!" Finished Ron, laughing at the look on Hermione's face.
When they had finished this conversation they found themselves at the edge of the village. Harry then turned to them "I'll go ahead and see if there is any danger, if I don't come back withen ten minutes go tell someone i am missing." He turned on the spot and dissapeared with a loud pop.
Ron turned to Hermione and said "I don't really think you have a big brain." Hermione blushed. Ron smiled and leaned in for the kiss.
"My lord, I have found Potter!" Said a voice from in the shadows of the room.
"Oh yes? Report what you have Draco!" Said Voldemort as he turned to face the shadows. "But first come out of the shadows."
A boy that even Harry wouldn't have recognised moved out of the shadows. Draco Malfoys usually sleek blond hair was matted and longer than it had ever been. It was know grey in colour. His face was more paler than it usually was and Draco looked more thinner than ever. He looked truly terrified at just seeing Voldemort.
"Well spit it out and your parents may not have to die!" Said Voldemort cruelly.
"He was in Hogsmeade with Weasley and Granger, Potter disapparated and ten minutes later came back. He spoke with the other two then all three of them disapparated." Malfoy told Voldemort now looking truly terrified like Voldmort would torture him for telling him that.
"Thank-you for telling me this. Would you go find Severus and send him to me. I should think that he will be on the front line. Go!" Voldemort watched as the boy disapparated. So, Potter is going to find the Horcruxes is he? Well he will wish that he never left his bed when I send Severus to capture him and bring him and the Horcrux back to me. I shall soon have got rid of the famous 'Chosen One'.
A death-eater apparated in front of him, and said without invataion "My lord the next part of the army are ready to attack." He flinched as Voldemort grabbed him by the front of his robes.
"Send in the trolls and this time do not fail me!" Voldemort let go of the death-eater, who disapparated back to the front line.
They better not fail it or there will be a lot of deaths tonight thought Voldemort, grinning in spite of himself.

Here is the next chapter of the fanfic. As usual please leave some feedback (look for the links in a few of the chapters).
Harry moved through the undergrowth towards a large house which now looked uninhabited as half of the side was collapsed. As he traipsed through this tall grass and several rather large plants and trees, he looked up and swore he saw someone move by the half smashed window. He rubbed his eyes and looked back up. There was no-one there. It must have been a fragment of my imagination, thought Harry as he continued towards the house, but he couldn’t help but feel a little bit more scared.
He reached a tall metal fence and looked all around for a way in or under it. Hermione raced up behind him, followed closely by Ron.
She pulled out her wand and said “Incarneous!” Fire sprouted from her wand and started to melt the metal, or at least to attempt to. She removed the fire but it had had no affect on the metal.
“Voldemort wouldn’t have just let you get in just like that. There will be a special magic on it. Look for traces of magic after all,” He turned with a gleam in his eyes like Dumbledore used to have, “Magic always leaves a trace!” He then turned and started searching for anything that may have known magic. Hermione and Ron had both taken off in different directions to see if they could find any. Harry then saw something that made his heart jump into his throat. Walking towards him out of the darkness was a man. Not just any man though. It was none other than his ex-potions teacher, Snape. Harry struggled as he pulled out his wand and cast a stunner in the greasy-haired, pale-faced and all round mean potions master. The spell however just bounced off the fence.
“Well, well if it isn’t Mr.Potter, the ‘Chosen One’. It will be a shame that-” But Snape didn’t get his sentence out, as a stunner flew from each end of the garden that Harry knew Snape was in. Both connected but didn’t make any impact. Harry stood there, shaken by what had happened. He had fallen straight into a trap set perfectly by Voldemort.
That’s all for know but there will be more that isn’t the end of the chapter.
