Hello, this is my 3rd fanfic and I really hope you like it.
There are just a few things to clear up first-
Voldemort isn't involved in this.
Fred and George didn't leave school or die etc.
The twins are in there last year at Hogwarts meaning they are 17.
Hermione is in her fifth year and is 16 (she's older than Harry) and she can do magic outside of school.
I think that's about it, so please review and let me know what you think
These muggles really are magical aren't they, Hermione?
"FREDERICK GIDEON WEASLEY! GEORGE FABIAN WEASLEY! GET DOWN HERE THIS INSTANT!"
Molly Weasley's voice boomed through the Burrow, making several inhabitants leave the comfort of their bedrooms in curiosity. One of said inhabitants was Hermione Granger, Hogwarts bookworm and best friend to famous Harry 'Boy-Who-Lived' Potter. Hermione had been staying with the Weasley's for a few days now, as Hogwarts had started the Christmas holiday 2 weeks early, meaning Hermione and Harry were allowed to stay with Ron and his family for a whole month.
Hermione loved the burrow dearly. It was always loud and bursting with excitement, the complete opposite from her parent's home. She loved her mum and dad with all her heart but staying with the Weasley's was the best part of the holidays.
Hermione had just reached the kitchen where Mrs. Weasley was glaring at two letters on the table. Ginny, Harry and Ron looked to each other curiously and several eyebrows rose in confusion at the look on molly's face. Her eyes hadn't left the parchment and her cheeks were flushed with anger.
"Mum? What's wrong?" Ginny asked slowly, as she was expecting an outburst.
"Those bloody brother of yours! Look at these! Look at them! Oh those twins! Just wait until I get my hands on them!" Mrs. Weasley growled as she thrust the letters into Ginny's and Hermione's waiting hands.
Hermione slowly reopened the letter and read threw it slowly.
Dear Mr. and Mrs. A Weasley,
We are sorry to inform you that your son, Frederick Weasley is failing his Muggle Studies course. As it is Fred's last year at Hogwarts, we believe that the failure of this course could severely affect his future. Most jobs in the wizarding world require 5 N.E.W.T.S at level 'exceeds expectations' or above and without his muggle studies course Fred will only have 4 N.E.W.T options.
After talking to several teachers, we believe that Fred should use his vacation time away from Hogwarts to venture into the muggle world and learn about their customs. Fred would benefit greatly from the chance to see the real muggle world and if it is possible to stay there for the holiday. We sincerely hope that you could arrange for Fred to live there for the month.
We have decided that, if Fred so wishes, he can use the extended Christmas Holiday to study and he can then repeat his final test on the first week back at Hogwarts.
We hope you understand the importance of this letter and we hope you can sort out an arrangement of some sort for Fred.
Headmistress of Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Hermione's mouth gaped open as she read through the letter. This was serious. If Fred wanted any chance of getting a job after school, them he needed to pass Muggle Studies. The thought of Fred let loose in the muggle world literally made Hermione shudder. It wasn't that Fred was stupid or careless, he was just so mischievous. And any mischievous wizard in the muggle world was a recipe for disaster, 'especially if your mischievous wizard is Fred Weasley- king of pranks.' Hermione thought.
She was snapped out of her thoughts as two loud CRACKS sounding from behind. She turned and saw two identical red heads grinning widely. There grins soon disappeared when they noticed the anger in their mothers eyes though.
"Yes mum, you bellowed?" George replied cheekily.
"HOW DARE YOU BE SO CHEEKY? YOU TWO ARE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE!"
Mrs. Weasley snatched the letters from Ginny and Hermione and thrust them once again into Fred and George's hands. They quickly skimmed the letters, processing all of the information. Fred was the first to recover from his shock.
"WHAT? We can't go live in the muggle world for a month! We'd die! We would get set on fire by that elkercikty stuff of we'd be attacked by their crazed futbool fans!" Fred exclaimed as he flung his arms in the air.
Hermione was trying her hardest not to laugh. It was incredibly clear that Fred and George hadn't been listening in Muggle studies because if they did, they would know that drunken football fans were the least of their worries.
"You are staying in the muggle world and that is final. If you don't get this N.E.W.T. there is no way you would ever be let into the Ministry of Magic or any job for that matter! I will not have two sons disappoint me." Mrs. Weasley had calmed slightly but the irritation was still clear in her voice.
"We don't want a poxy job at the ministry! We are opening up our own joke shop and you know that we won't need stupid N.E.W.T.S to do it! George and I are not staying in the muggle world."
Fred was now at boiling point. He didn't really care about staying with muggles or how many N.E. he got, but he did care about his mother's disappointment towards his dreams. She loved him dearly but she didn't understand the need to create jokes and cause havoc for a few laughs but Fred did. She wanted him to be like Percy or Bill and have a proper job.
"You and George are staying in the muggle world and that is final. If you disobey me you will not be allowed to open your joke shop and I will personal make sure it doesn't happen."
Fred deflated at this comment and decided to quit while he was well… behind. He nodded solemnly as his mother continued.
"I have already asked a nice squib family that live in the local village if they would take you in for the month. But now that they think about it, I don't think that you should stay together. I will have to split you up. George you can go to the Montague's and they will teach you about muggles and we will have to find another squib or magical family that live in the muggle world to take you Fred."
Fred just looked wide eyed at his mother while George started shouting. He didn't catch all of what George said but it sounded like "not going" or "not leaving Fred" and near the end he was pretty sure he heard "flipping muggles and there bloody studies, who gives a shit?" Fred laughed slightly at the last comment as his mum hit George upside the head for his "appalling language".
"Well that's just great for George. He gets a nice family who live 5 minutes away and I get some random family we don't even know! The Montague's have been family friend for years and not to mention they have one hot daughter!" Fred sighed.
Mrs. Weasley scowled again at his comment but kept her calm none the less. She gave a stern look to both of the twins and began to speak again.
"We have settled it with the Montague's but we still need to find a place for you Fred. We could see if there is a hotel in London, but then you would need a teacher. We don't know any other families in the muggle world. You could always stay with… no they moved. Or you could stay at… no that won't work. What about…"
Mrs. Weasley was interrupted by Hermione's quiet voice. She had obviously forgotten that Hermione, Ron, Harry and Ginny were still in the room and she jumped slightly at Hermione's words.
"Mrs. Weasley, I was just thinking that well you do know another muggle family and they have someone who would be happy to help be Fred's tutor. I would have to check with them first but I'm sure they would say yes."
Hermione smiled at Fred who was looking at her curiously. He seemed to realise that his expression was worrying her and he smiled sweetly instead.
"Oh Hermione that's brilliant! Who are they?" Mrs. Weasley asked excitedly.
"Well…umm. I'm sure my mum and dad wouldn't mind if Fred stayed at mine for the month. I could teach him all about muggles as I am muggleborn after all. And it would be my way of finally being able to repay you for all of your hospitality over the years. That's only if you want to Fred, I know we haven't exactly been close but it could be fun."
Hermione was blushing slightly and Fred had started to softly laugh at her embarrassment. He smiled at his beaming mother and turned back to Hermione.
"Thanks Hermione. That would be great, at least I know you and I'm sure you mum and dad are just as lovely as you." Fred winked and watched as the blush deepened.
"Hermione, that is absolutely brilliant. Thankyou ever so much dear. I asked Mrs. Montague if Fred and George could go over tomorrow with all of there things but I guess I need to tell her off the change in plans. Hermione love, is your house connected to the Floo network?"
Hermione smiled and nodded politely.
"Would it be alright if you two went tomorrow morning? Then you could all go at the same time. You will have to owl your mother now if you want a reply soon. Thankyou ever so much, you really are a lovely girl." Mrs. Weasley engulfed Hermione in a bone crushing hug as the other sniggered behind her.
"Thankyou Mrs. Weasley. I will owl them now to let them know, tomorrow sounds perfect. I better go and pack now." She said as she walked away from the hug and up to her and Ginny's room.
Harry and Ron had turned left on the first floor landing and had said good night to the girls before heading to bed. Both of them were a little disappointed that Hermione was leaving them but they would see her at Hogwarts anyway so they had given there blessing and told her to have fun but not too much without them.
She had written a letter to her parents explaining the situation and they had replied almost instantly saying that it would be lovely to finally meet one of Hermione's wizard friends. 'Thank Merlin I have such organised parents, now I can officially start packing.'
Although she had only been at the burrow for a few days she had unpacked her truck completely, meaning she now had to repack everything. This was one of the times Hermione was glad she was a witch who could finally do magic outside of school. She flicked her wand and all of her stuff packed itself neatly into her trunk. She smiled and closed the lid to find Ginny smirking at her.
"For someone so smart you are very stupid Hermione."
Hermione frowned and looked at Ginny.
"And why is that exactly?"
"Poor, poor Mione. You just invited one half of Hogwarts biggest pranksters to live with you for a month. Just you, Fred and your parents. And from what you've told me over the years, your parents aren't really home most of the time. That means just a whole month of you and Fred. I wish you all the luck in the world Mione. Hopefully you don't go insane before the next time I see you." Ginny chuckled lightly.
Realization finally hit Hermione like a Bat Bogey Hex. She had practically just made herself Fred's personal prank victim for a whole month.
