Disclaimer: I own nothing, which might be a good thing....
A.N. I hope you enjoy this chapter. As of now the story will have spoilers for HP books 1-6 and all Buffy seasons. I would do HP book 7 but I know some still have not read it and I don't want to mess it up for them ^_^.
Buffy and Dawn will not meet up for a while, it all really depends on the length of the chapters. The shorter they are the longer the wait. Hopefully this will be a long chapter, it all depends on my muse.
Oh, when I went back to writing on this story I realized I did not fully think through ages. So I may go back through and fix that on earlier chapters. If I do, I will tell you. I want to just rewrite the entire story....Hmmm....
Annnnd updates are few and far between. I lead a very busy life now =) It's fuuuun. =P
Oh, better bring this up before I get reviews complaining about it. I know they don't sound English, I know they don't sound in character. But we don't really know how the HP world of Harry's parents sound. So no complaining! Complaints are met with a pointy spork and a marshmallow.
"So who is this?" asked James curious. He had seen them carrying her through the castle and had asked around but no one knew anything.
"She is an exchange student. Now, she will be introduced tomorrow when she feels better so please return to your common room," said Dumbledore.
"But we came to see Pomfrey," pouted Sirius always wanting to get his way and the new girl was pretty. He winked at her over Dumbledore's shoulder. She glared at him.
"What did you get into now?" asked Pomfrey with a frown.
"Tripped," said James unconvincingly.
"Actually Madam they were playing around with spells and shot Peter with a bruising one," said Lily rolling her eyes at their childish behavior.
Dumbledore smiled and waved his wand at Peter "Finite!" Peter's body grew less bruised and he stood happily.
"Thank you Headmaster," he said smiling.
"Now off with you. You'll get to meet the new student tomorrow, Mr. Black please quit winking at her," said Dumbledore winking at Sirius himself.
They slowly left the hospital wing, wanting to stay they tried to think of an excuse to talk to the new girl.
After they got outside and the doors shut Dawn grew troubled. What year was it? Those students were dresses in older styled clothing.
"What year is it?" she asked out loud starting to shake.
"1976, what year do you think it is?"
"I...it was 2005."
Dawn grew quiet and would not answer anymore questions. Her brain was on overload. To much had happened in to short of a time. She just wanted to go home.
Hours passed before she fell asleep and even then she was tossing and turning. Waking to a noise she saw a greasy haired boy trying not to stare at her seriously. Looking at the window she saw it was bright outside.
Raising an eye at the boy she spoke "Don't you know it's rude to stare?"
"Of course a mudblood would say something like that," he snarled back at her.
"And that made no sense what so ever grouchy pants," she snipped back at him.
"And calling someone Grouchy Pants does?" he asked with a smirk.
"Yes," she answered with a grin. "What time is it?"
Thrown off track by her smile and her question it took him a minute to answer.
"It's 7 am. Breakfast is going on. Who are you?" he finally asked.
"I'm Dawn....the old guy with a beard said I was to be an exchange student."
"The old guy with a beard?" asked the boy with a grin but it quickly grew into a smirk.
"Do you never smile? Laugh? Wash your hair?" asked Dawn.
"Do you ever not ask questions?" asked the boy.
"Sometimes. What's your name?"
"Severus Snape," he said puffing up his chest."Slytherin. What house are you in?"
"I haven't been put in a house yet," she answered.
Before they could talk more Dumbledore and Pomfrey entered and looked shocked but grew somber.
"Mr. Snape could you please go to class."
When he left Dumbledore turned to Dawn. "You will be a student here until we can get you home. I don't know anything about time travel and I warn you now, I have no idea if we can get you home."
She straightened but didn't cry. She had to be strong and she could do research with her blood. He didn't know about that so maybe, just maybe it would work.
Nodding she smiled at him," I understand," she said.
And thus began the life of Dawn Summers in the year 1977. Her life was changed and she was lost in time.
Sorry short, yeah.....not really XD Hope you enjoy it!!
