The day is 31 Oct 1981 it late in the night. A man with a large hat and an apparent wand in his hand steps through doorway. The man is older in age and is only one in the residence. As he go from room to room he desperately looking for someone. The only sound he has heard since entering the house is the wailing of baby.
As Albus Dumbledore enters the room of one Harry Potter the infant son of James and Lily Potter. He notices a body in the corner of the room, it appears to be Lily. In front of the infant who is wailing in the crib, lies a robe and wand. Dumbledore moves closer to see the robes and the wand. These belonged to Voldermont the self-proclaimed Dark Lord of the wizarding world. Dumbledore mutters a word “Luminso” the light on his wand tip lights up. He looks at Harry and notices a small cut on the infant child. “My dear boy I do believe you have just made a name for yourself” Albus says as he picks up Harry. Others arrive at the house and come inside Albus then says “It is safe and the lad is safe”
After Harry is delivered to his extended family Dumbledore looks at the gathered crowd. “We will reopen the school tomorrow. Please send out the owls to our newest students. The parents will be pleased and our returning students would life to resume their lives.” Dumbledore says this and then waves his wand. The night time begins to light up as the death mark gets disturbed.
A set of Owls get sent out the following morning to the newest First Years.
An owl finds its way to Melody Smith and then to Jacob Firwik.
The letter reads
Dear(Your Character’s Name),
We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Please find enclosed a list of all necessary books and equipment.
Term begins on November 12. We await your owl by no later than November 6.
The reason in the delay of the term is due to He Who Must Not be Named. As you may know the Ministry has reported the death of He Who Must Not be Named so the term will be starting late.
It's early morning and all seems normal as if any other day but everything seems a bit more joyful on the Radio during breakfast the news reported many weird things one of which was a large number of owls spotted flying around during the day. Jacob hearing this went and checked to see if any mail arrived in case their was his letter from Hogworts which he was getting anxious about since no word had been sent back since he sent his application however he'd be glad to find the Quibbler or the Daily Prophet which would occasionally end up in the mail
Jacob reads the letter and says "Bloody Hell it's here, it's really here" his mother in the background "what's here? It better not be that bloody owl who keeps offering discounts on jokes and pranks from that Zonkos place!?
Yea I'm fine waiting as long as you and the new person are
Jacob "yes for the most part but not quite sure where I'm gonna get a cauldron and a wand. I should be able to get the books and clothes easy enough but the the last few things I'll have to ask the shopkeepers and see if they can point me in the right direction"
(Hey, sorry for the late reply. Went on holiday as soon as the chat started up. Basically had no internet the entire time.)
Melody, a girl with a wiry frame and thick locks of auburn hair, garbed in a long pink dress is wandering down the street with the parchment upon her shopping list is written. Her mother follows behind her. "Oh mother." She says in her best performing tone. "Won't I look splendid in a real witch's costume?" She smiles with glee as she contemplates the thought of being a real witch with spells and not just special effects people see in a play or on the television.
"Hmm let's see here mum keep a look out for something called the leaky cauldron" some time later the wall opens to Diagonal alley"oh ok thank you so let's see first on the list some clothing store and then the book store"
Melody will defer to her mother as to how to get there. As a muggle-born child, it is most likely a set of directions was given to the parents in order to get to the shops. Also, since this is in London, which is a very busy city, it is likely that Melody will be kept on a short leash for now.
