Chapter 1: The New Prophecy
Professor Trelawney, the Divinations teacher sat in her office drinking her tea when she heard something. She looked around, but saw no one. Thinking that it had been her imagination she returned to her tea.
" Hello, Sybil," said a voice behind her.
Sybil turned to see the most horrible sight in the world. A tall woman dressed in black and red with huge bat-like wings. Her eyes glowed with something that she had never felt or seen before. She felt fear flooding her body, which only seem to please the creature.
" It\'s nice to see that you fear me, Sybil. I want that."
" What do you want?" Sybil asked her.
The creature laughed.
" I want to payback the Snape\'s for what they did to me and your going to be the perfect person to insure that happens."
She laughed again.
" I\'ll never help you out!" she stated.
The creature’s eyes danced with amusement.
" Oh I\'m afraid that you\'ll have no choice, unless you want to die a slow death."
She raised her hand up and suddenly the creatures nails, which Sybil hadn\'t noticed before became long claws. She shivered, but remained determined. This made the creature angry, not pleased.
" Oh why must you stinking Gryffindores act brave?" she asked her.
" Because that\'s what we do," she answered.
The creature roared with rage, but this pleased Sybil. It gave her the determination to face her. She looked at her like she was a student, not something to be feared. Finally the creature laughed and looked down at her.
" I\'ve got an idea," she told the professor.
" And what might that be?" she asked.
The creature gave her a look.
" I\'m not going to tell you!" she snapped.
" Well, then, I\'ve got to report this," she told her.
And with a snap of her finger Professor Trelawney disappeared, leaving a very angry creature behind.
Headmaster Snape was busy looking over pay raises when Professor Trelawney appeared looking upset. She at once sat down, which at one time would have annoyed him, but now he was use to.
" What\'s wrong, Sybil?" he asked, his eyes twinkling in amusement. " You flashed someone and they died."
She glared at him, but he laughed.
" I\'m sorry I couldn\'t resist."
" Oh ha ha," she snapped. " If you want to know the most horrible creature appeared in my office. I only managed to get away."
He grinned at her.
" Oh don\'t tell me, it was someone that wanted a refund on a bad prediction," he answered. " Oh wait you can\'t make a prediction."
Professor Trelawney jumped up, glaring at him.
" For you information this creature wants to kill you and your family."
And she left.
" What\'s wrong dear?" Hermione Snape, the Transfiguration teacher, Head of Slytherin house, and Queen of the Fairies, asked.
Severus looked up at her.
" It seems that something wants to hurt us," he told her. He didn\'t want to tell her that Sybil had said kill instead of hurt. " I don\'t know if she\'s right or has been breathing that fumes too long."
Hermione gave him a strange look. He knew that she really didn\'t care for Professor Trelawney and her predictions.
" And what does she want us to do?" she asked him.
" I don\'t know," Severus answered.
The next day Severus watched the students file into the Great Hall. He looked with pride as he watch Godric sit at the Slytherin table while the rest of his children went to the other tables. This year his next to final child was being sorted. Something that they were both pleased about.
He looked over at the Gryffindor table at the four: Raven, Will, Charlie, and April, waiting for the sorting to start, at the Hufflepuff table where their only adopted daughter, Michaeli, sat with Cornelia, and at the Ravenclaw table where Irma, John, and his twin son’s Robert and Tormund. Godric, Raven, and Cornelia were in their sixth year, Will, Irma, and Michaeli where in their fifth year, Charlie and April where in their fourth year, John was in his third year, and Robert and Tormund was in their second year.
“ So do you think that Albus will get into Slytherin?” asked his flying instructor, Harry.
Severus turned to him.
“ I don’t know,” he admitted. “ And I don’t care!”
Harry looked at his boss. He never thought he would see the day that Severus Snape didn’t care where his children went. He opened his mouth to speak when the doors opened and the first-years walked into the Great Hall.
“ Look at all those fools,” the creature told her servant. “ Looking all happy and everything. Makes me sick!”
Her servant grinned.
“ What is your plan, my mistress?” he asked her.
She laughed as Albus was placed into Ravenclaw.
“ I’m going to make the Queen of the Fairies rule the day that she fooled with me,” she told him. “ And that will be soon.”
The servant said nothing.
Later that night an owl arrived with a letter for Hermione. When she opened it she saw that it was from Professor Trelawney. She read it and looked at her husband in shock.
“ What’s wrong?” he asked.
Hermione bit her lip.
“ The Professor has left,” she informed him.
He rose up.
“ She said that she won’t return until the creature is caught,” she read. “ And she doesn’t care what the students think of her. Oh, Severus, what is Godric going to do about his Divination lesson.”
“ I don’t know!” he answered.
The next morning Hermione visited Fairyland, the only place that she felt like she could figure things out. She wanted to know more about the creature that caused her to lose her Divination teacher. She walked along the wonderful halls, wishing that the world were like this. When she entered she saw her advisor looking things over in one of the many books that lined the walls. He turned and bowed when she entered.
“ So what’s going on here?” she asked him.
“ I’ve been sensing something,” he told her, a look of concern on his face. “ And I’m afraid that it’s not pretty.”
Hermione frowned at him.
“ And what is it?” she asked him.
“ A dark creature, one that I believe was once a human person, as invaded your world,” he to her. “ I don’t understand how this is possible.”
Hermione thought this over. She knew that it was impossible for such a thing to happen, but she knew that her advisor would never lie to her. If this creature were the same one that Professor Trelawney saw, then it would explain why she believed that this creature wanted to hurt her and her family.
“ Any idea where this creature came from?” Hermione asked him.
“ I’ve got no idea!” he answered.
When Hermione returned to the castle, she was back in her human form and upset. She had tried to figure this all out, but came back with nothing. On Saturday Albus told his parents all about what his first week of classes were like.
“ Professor White is a great Herbology teacher!” he told them. “ We learned about the Devil Snare.”
Hermione grinned at that.
“ And what about my lessons?” Hermione asked.
Her son grinned at her.
“ You’re a great teacher too,” he told her.
The next morning an owl delivered the mail, dropping it on the table. He had no sooner left, that Godric walked in. He sneered when he saw that it was from Professor Trelawney. He hadn’t forgiven her for leaving like that. He picked up the mail and going over to his parent’s bedroom he shoved the letters under the door.
“ What in the world!” yelled his father a few minutes later.
Godric backed away as his father rushed to the fireplace. He put floo powder in and poked his head in.
“ Hermione, Ron’s done it again!” he told her.
“ What has he done?”
“ See for yourself,” he said, shoving a letter into the fireplace.
There was silence.
“ I’m on it,” she told him.
“ NEVER IN ALL MY WILDEST DREAMS WOULD I THINK THAT RON WOULD DO THIS,” Hermione yelled at Harry. “ HE IS GOING TO AZKABAN FOR THIS!”
Harry stared at her.
“ What did he do?” Harry asked her.
She showed him the letter, which caused Harry’s eyes to widen.
“ But, why would he do this?”
“ How the hell should I know!” she stated. “ But, I’m going to get him for this.”
And she turned and left.
For the next several weeks Hermione didn’t think about work, children, or anything. Just the idea of finally capturing Ron for the Aurors to take to Azkaban filled her thoughts. She wanted to make him pay for what he did to Luna. Luna hadn’t had anybody to be with her once she was divorced from Ron, which made her even madder then ever.
“ Ron is a jerk!” Hermione hissed during Transfiguration.
Remus’s son looked up at her. He had been sorted into Gryffindor, like his father. He had not been born with the gene that caused a person to become a werewolf, but Hermione knew how close it had been. Hermione looked at him, but didn’t say anymore. When the bell rang she told everyone to do the homework on the board, and they were allowed to leave. Ten minutes later Lee Jordan arrived. He looked upset about something and it didn’t take long for Hermione to find out.
“ Lavender Brown had a vision!” he told her.
Hermione looked at her old friend.
“ What are you talking about?” she asked him.
He took a deep breath and then said, “ Lavender told me that she saw six of your children defeating an evil creature. She said that it’s their destiny to defeat her and her evil forever.”
Hermione glared at him. She knew what six he was talking about. Six of her children were born like she looked when she changed. The six had power over something. She had never told anyone about this, and had kept their secret by using spells.
“ And why should I believe her?” Hermione asked him.
“ Because you know that she tells the truth!” Lee stated, and left.

Chapter 2: The Attack
Hermione thought hard about what Lee had told her. She didn’t like Divination or the people called themselves Seers, but then again, her son was a Seer, so she couldn’t write to Lavender and tells her what she thought of her and her prediction. She was still thinking over all this when Godric entered her office.
“ Mum,” he called out.
Hermione looked up.
“ What’s wrong?” she asked him.
“ I’m worried about you!” he told her. “ All of my brothers and sisters are worried about you!”
It was Hermione’s turn to sigh.
“ I know,” she told him, her eyes softening as they always did when Godric was around. “ I just have a lot of things on my mind, that’s all.”
Godric looked at his mother. He had never seen her like this, not in all the time that he had been around her.
“ Is it something that’s going to hurt us?” he asked.
Hermione stared at him, but he laughed.
“ Remember I’m a seer.”
Hermione at once wished that he wasn’t.
“ Something bothering you, my boy?” asked the ghost of Professor Dumbledore when Godric left his Head’s office.
He turned and glared at the ghost of the former Headmaster. He laughed.
“ Does anything not get by you?” he asked.
Dumbledore laughed again.
“ Not much,” he stated. “ So want to talk about it?”
“ My mum isn’t herself,” he told him. “ And I don’t know what to do.”
Dumbledore looked at him.
“ Hermione is a complicated witch, like your father is a complicated wizard,” he explained. “ I knew them both when they were at school and I must admit that with being the Head of your house, the Transfiguration teacher, and a Fairy Queen, she has a lot of things on her mind. So any idea what it might be?”
Godric shook his head.
“ I don’t know and that’s what I’m afraid of.”
And he turned and left.
Later that night Hermione was tucking in her children when she felt like she was being watched. She turned at once and saw that it was Remus’s son. She looked at him, but he just looked at his shoes.
“ I got detention from the Headmaster,” he informed her.
Hermione crossed her arms.
“ And what do you want me to do?” she asked him.
He shrugged his shoulders.
“ Follow me,” she said, sighing.
He followed her out of her quarters and down the hall to her husband’s old office. Professor Thompson was busy looking over essays when they entered. He frowned at Sirius, but said nothing.
“ Give him some cauldrons to clean,” she ordered. “ I want to go to bed.”
He nodded, but suddenly both Sirius and Professor Thompson gasped. Hermione turned around and she felt as though her whole world had ended. Standing there was a tall figure, which looked like something out of a horror film. She smiled at them, allowing her huge wings to fill the doorway.
“ How are things going, Mrs. Snape?” she asked, grinning.
Hermione looked at her.
“ What are you?”
The creature laughed.
“ And I though that the wife of Professor Severus Snape would have more of a comeback,” she told her. “ I thought that you would be asking my name and everything. I’m shocked that I’m not that important.”
Hermione glared at her.
“ Professor Trelawney thought I was quite a sight,” she confessed. “ And I must admit that she did disappoint me.”
“ You’re the-.”
“ I’m the what?” the creature asked. “ Don’t you even know who I am?”
Hermione shook her head.
“ You robbed me of a magical child,” she said. “ And now I’m going to take your children away. But, first, I’m going to take Severus wife away from him.”
“ I don’t think so!” Sirius said, putting himself between Hermione and the creature.
The creature laughed.
“ You think that you can stop me,” she told him. “ I would like to see a filthy werewolf son try and stop me.”
“ You leave him alone,” Hermione said, getting angry. “ Whatever is between you and me, will remain between you and me.”
The creature smiled at her.
“ I must admit that you’ve always been the one that has wanted to bring out the best in people,” she said. “ I mean; that’s why you saved your husband from a horrible life in Azkaban. But I must admit that while I was gone, your family as grown. Now I’m sure that no one around here wants that to continue.”
Hermione heard the Professor rise, and she raised her hand to stop him. She didn’t want him to get hurt or Sirius.
“ Why don’t we talk outside,” Hermione suggested.
The creature laughed, which gave Hermione a bad feeling that she knew that Hermione had something planned.
“ I don’t think so,” she said. “ I think that I’m going to kill you right here. The filthy creature can tell your dear Headmaster husband that his dearly departed wife is gone.”
Hermione at once sent out a mental message, which got the creatures attention. That’s when Hermione knew that there was a good chance that this thing could read people’s minds. She at once decided that she was going to put up a fight until someone came for her. She at once changed into her form, which shocked Sirius and the Professor. She decided that she would deal with that later. She raised her staff to defend herself.
“ Well it looks like the dear Queen wants a fight,” she said, her voice filled with mirth. “ And I’m not the one to deny a person what they want.”
Hermione at once knew she was ready. She focused her magic and right before the spell was complete all her children came in. Godric shot a blast of white light at her, which made her duck. However, most of the world went black for Hermione and those around her.

Chapter 1296791012: Hermione\'s SurpriseChapter 2: The Attack
Chapter 3: Hermione’s Surprise
“ What happened?” asked a voice as the darkness ended and reality started.
Hermione slowly looked around to see that they were exactly where they where at, except that there was no Professor Thompson standing behind his desk. Hermione noticed that there was hardly anything that told her that a Potions teacher even was here. Hermione at once counted heads. Godric, Raven, Will, April, John, and Tormund were all standing there, but so was Sirius. It seemed that he had been the one to ask the question.
“ What’s going on here, mum?” April asked.
“ I’ve got no idea,” Hermione answered. “ But I need to speak to your father.”
“ And what about me?” Sirius asked, looking a little hurt that she didn’t care for him.
Hermione looked at him.
“ Look, I care about all the students, doesn’t matter what house their in,” she told him. “ But he was the one that was told by Sybil that this creature was here. We all saw it and I’ve got to tell him, to let him know that this creature attacked us.”
“ And he’ll know what to do?” Raven asked her mother.
Hermione nodded, but she wasn’t really that sure.
All eight of them left the office and headed up the stairs. The sound of students at once surrounded them and Hermione knew that dinner was going on, which seemed strange to her. She knew that dinner had ended a long time ago. She had just reached the doors when she heard a voice, a voice that she had only heard from one person, and it wasn’t her husband.
“ As you all know after their search of the Hogwarts Express, our school is playing host to some of the dementors of Azkaban, who is here on Ministry of Magic business.”
“ Dementors!” April muttered. “ What’s going on here?”
“ I don’t know,” Hermione answered. “ But I’m going to find out.”
She slowly opened the door and looked in, which at once brought silence. Hermione, however, didn’t care. She was use to people not speaking or stopping when she entered a room. She walked between the Gryffindor and Slytherin table, not looking at the student, but the source of the voice. She reached the staff table and took one look at the Headmaster and fainted.
“ What did you do to our mum?” Godric asked, his eyes flashing in anger.
“ We didn’t do anything,” said one of the Professors. “ She just looked at Professor Dumbledore and fainted.”
“ Ya right!” he snapped, not caring if his brothers and sisters were staring at him. “ Everyone knows that-“
“ Will you be quiet,” Will snapped, losing his temper with his brother. “ She’s waking up.”
Hermione let out a little moan as she opened her eyes. She had heard Godric yelling at someone and Will demanding that he be quite. She felt like smirking at that. She slowly rose up, but a pair of hands forced her down. She knew at once that these belonged to Madam Pomfrey.
“ Your going up to the hospital wing,” she told her. “ And I don’t care who you say you are, that’s my final word.”
Hermione laughed, she couldn’t help it.
“ That’s all right,” she told her. “ I can heal myself.”
She slowly got up, being helped by Will and Godric. She muttered a few words and at once she looked like her old self. She gave them both a look that told them that she could now stand on her own. Sirius stared at her, shocked. He had heard that her magic was great, but he had never seen it before.
“ Professor, how do you do that?” he asked, not caring that people where staring at his Transfiguration teacher.
Hermione grinned at him. She liked him, like she had liked his father.
“ A lot of practice,” she answered.
“ I believe that!” Godric muttered.
She turned and looked at her son, then turned and looked at the Headmaster. It was strange seeing him alive, but that all disappeared when she suddenly remembered the creature that had tried to kill her, to take her away from her family. She suddenly felt like Lily Potter, except that she had survived the attack. She shivered slightly at the image the monster had given her. Raven at once noticed this.
“ Are you all right?” she asked her mother.
Hermione smiled at her.
“ I’ll be fine, dear,” she answered, and then she turned back to the Headmaster. “ We need to talk, Professor.”

Chapter 1296791026: Explaining Things
Chapter 4: Explaining Things.
Hermione knew that leaving her children and Sirius alone in the Great Hall with the rest of the students wasn’t exactly the best idea, but she didn’t want to worry them. She knew what panic could do to a person, since she had experience with being friends with Harry Potter. She followed Professor Dumbledore into a room that she knew would be used during Harry’s fourth year. Professor Dumbledore closed the door and turned to Hermione.
“ I’m hoping you can explain things, Mrs.-“
“ Snape,” Hermione finished.
That got Dumbledore’s attention. Hermione knew that she would have to explain things, but not too much.
“ Professor,” Hermione started, hoping that she could explain things to the best of her ability. “ I know that what I’m going to tell you is going to be hard to believe, but you’ve got to hear me out. Sometime ago, at least from where I come from a horrible creature came to terrorize Professor Trelawney. She escaped and informed my husband, who takes over as Headmaster. I thought it was a joke when he told me until I was told that this monster is very real. She attacked me!”
“ And why would she do that?”
“ I don’t know, but something she said makes me-“
She stopped, her face white.
“ What’s wrong?”
“ Oh dear gods, its Pansy.”
“ As in Parkinson.”
“ She blamed me and my husband for the fact that she didn’t have any magical children,” Hermione said. “ Oh god, Severus is in great danger!”
“ What do you mean?”
She gave him a hard look.
“ Professor, if me and my children are here, then Pansy is here,” Hermione said coldly. “ And I know that she’ll tell the Pansy here what me and my husband supposedly did to her and her husband. And even though me and you know that her claim is impossible, Pansy will believe it, and she’ll seek her revenge.”
Dumbledore at once understood.
“ Professor, I need to stay here and my children need to stay here,” she told him. “ And I know that the power that my children have will be enough to stop her.”
“ And what if it isn’t?” he asked her, worry in his voice.
Hermione said nothing.
Thanks Amanda for your wonderful review. Also, I looked to make sure that Sybil was alive, and I must have missed it. Anyway, where Hermione and her children are at, she’s still alive.

Chapter 1296791031: Albus Appears
Chapter 5: Albus Appears
“ What’s taking them so long?” Godric asked.
April looked at her brother.
“ They’ve got a lot to talk about,” she told him. “ I know I would.”
Godric gave her a strange look, which made her explain.
“ Our mother has just battled a dark creature. One that I’m sure isn’t even in the books. If I’m right about this, and I always am. I think that the reason why this creature is probably not in any books is because it was created. Voldemort wasn’t in any of the books because he had created that look himself. I think the witch that did this used the same exact spells that Voldemort used to become what she is.”
“ But where almost exactly like she is,” Raven suggested.
She looked at her sister.
“ There is a big difference between being born that way and doing something freaky to yourself!” April said. “ Now if you don’t mind I’m going to find out where our mother’s at.”
She turned in the direction of where her mother had gone when she slammed into something hard and solid. She fell down and at once Raven and Godric was next to her. She looked around, but saw no one.
“ What happened?” Raven asked her.
“ I don’t know,” April answered, looking confused.
She felt around until she felt the edge of a cloak. This made April smile. The only person that she knew that had an invisibility cloak was Albus. She pulled it off and sure enough Albus was under it. He smiled up at them, but April could tell that he was worried.
“ Albus what-.”
“ ALBUS ARTHUR SNAPE WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE YOU DOING HERE AND HOW DID YOU GET HERE?” came a booming voice that meant that Hermione had returned.
The Headmaster looked confused.
“ I’m sorry, mum,” Albus said, getting up. “ But I sensed that you were calling me and I became trapped. When I finally came around I saw that I was all alone. I looked for you everywhere, but-.”
He trailed off as tears welled up. Hermione’s eyes softened and she ran over and hugged him.
“ That’s all right,” she told him. “ As long as your safe.”
“ Mum, I saw that creature,” he told her. “ She was talking to someone, I don’t know who. She talked about killing us all.”
Hermione looked down at him.
“ And where is she?”
Albus shrugged his shoulders.
“ I don’t know,” he answered. “ Mum, what’s going on here?”
“ I’ve got no idea, son. I’ve got no idea.”
Several hours later Hermione crashed onto a bed that the Headmaster had provided for her. She had never had a more trying day in all her life. What hurt the most was the fact that once again the youngest of all was about to become a victim.
