(Hogwarts on Fire)


Another blast was heard throughout the already damaged castle. Voldemort has gathered an enormous army, one filled with Giants, Dragons, Werewolves, and even Dementors, just to name a few. Three men cloaked in black robes with silver masks covering their faces blended into the darkness of the Astronomy Tower watching the chaos unfold below. Bodies littered the once green ground, now it was bleeding red, many were of the Light but a good portion was from the Dark side among the dead. Near the center of the battle field the men could see the Golden Trio fighting with their backs to each other, while a few feet away they saw Neville Longbottom and Luna Lovegood fighting fluently together in perfect harmony and finally they saw Dumbledore fighting with the few teachers left standing. All of a sudden it seemed like Hell had risen to the Earth as one by one people stopped fighting and a lone dark figure walked toward the center of the circle where those remaining on the Light side stood fighting.....The Dark Lord had decided to enter the battle.

"Ahhh hello Tom, I was wondering if you would show up," Dumbledore said. Voldemort pushed his hood back revealing an older version of his 16 year old self, many eyes of the Light and Dark widened seeing this...human face instead of the ugly snake he once was.


"Bella come to me my love and lend me your mark." Bellatrix smiled darkly while others (including myself) one both sides shuddered at the fact he had called her his love. Only someone crazier than her could love someone like that. She pulled her sleeve up while Voldemort pressed his wand to her mark and almost instantly 3 figures arrived in front of him.

"My most trusted, you have down well, I believe a reward is to be given, don't you think.....Malfoys, Snape? The three men pulled their hoods down revealing that they were in fact the men Voldemort had just mentioned. Though the responds from the Light was immediate.

"I knew the Malfoys were involved!"
"Dumbledore trusted you!"
"Kill them now!"

"SILENCE!!!" Dumbledore shouted. Harry stood watching intently at the men in front of him, he couldn't put his finger on it but something big was about to happen, he just didn't know what.

"Now, now, I will say to everyone that I trust these three men with my life," Dumbledore started saying with a slight twinkle in his eye and a warm smile upon his face. Looking directly at the man he thought of as a son. "Severus, you have made me so proud of you, you are like a son to me. But I believe I must say I will miss you."

Everybody around them except for the three men looked very confused, trying to figure out what he was saying and why. Harry watched the men and noticed Snape looking at Dumbledore with a hint of sadness in his eyes. Snape looked behind Dumbledore at the people whose lives would be greatly changed in the next few days, months, maybe even years to come. He noticed Harry looking at him with curiosity trying to figure out what was going on. When their eyes met he quickly sneered and turned his eyes back to Dumbledore, the man he saw as a father, as he started to speak again.

"Harry, Ron, Hermonie, Neville, have grown over the past seven years and have become strong and amazing young witches and wizards. I will deeply miss you all." After that was said, the people mentioned were now highly confused and so was everybody else. Voldemort grew angry and quickly raised his wand pointing it at Dumbledore.

"What are you going on about old man! Tell me or you will die along with your precious army!!" Dumbledore only smiled and looked at the three men with a sad twinkle in is eyes.

"It's time."

After those two words were spoken, Voldemort fired the Killing spell at Dumbledore who had raised a shield charm just in time to block it. Everybody around them seemed to freeze in time watching the pure raw magic of the Dark and Light Lords battle each other. Dumbledore started growing tired and knew it was now or never.

"Severus do it now! I can't hold out much longer!"

(Severus's POV)

I had a slight feeling of panic run through my body when Dumbledore and Voldemort started to duel. I kept telling myself that I had to wait for the signal in order succeed at what Dumbledore had asked of me and the Malfoys to do.

"....much longer! It's time Severus!"

There....that was the signal, it's time. I looked at the man who I had eventually came to see as a father figure and said a silent goodbye. Before anybody could react to the words just spoken, we moved quicker than lightening toward the five people standing in the middle of the circle. Draco grabbed onto Longbottom and Lovegood, Lucius grabbed onto Weasley and Granger while I grabbed onto Potter. I aparated to the spot where our journey would begin.
