The Blond Haired Wizard
Disclaimer:I don't own anything.. My parents own it all! Mwahahahahaha!
This is a product of my illness and the resulting free time when I can't study.. at all.. This will be a single pairing, NarutoxHermione. Naruto will be born in HP world, with no chakra, but magic. Eventually powerful Naruto and Harry. This story is Naruto-centric, and no characters will be bashed for the hell of it. This can turn out to be somewhat angst-filled later.
So,prepare yourselves for The blond Wizard, chapter une!
"It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."-Albus Dumbledore
Chapter 1: The Invitation
31 July, 1991,
London was a beautiful city, with strengths in the arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, professional services, research and development, tourism and transport all contributing to its prominence. It was the financial center of Britain.
Life for people living in London was good.
Except for one boy.
Naruto Uzumaki. A scrawny 11 year old, with blond, spiky hair and blue eyes. Blessed with a strange name, and even stranger birthmarks adorning his cheeks, he was the major target for all the bullies. It was the norm that the unruly boys would target Naruto to vent out their frustrations.
The reason was very simple.
Out of all the kids in the orphanage, Naruto was the only one, who, if the beat up, no one would scold them. The matrons always gave him the cold shoulder.
Their reason you ask?
They saw him as a devil in human's skin. He was found in a wrecked house, with two more bodies inside, lying on a crib which had miraculously escaped harm, with his name printed on his blanket,. Blood tests proved that the deceased were the bond's parents.
After that he was taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries. On the same night, an oxygen cylinder leaked, leading to the deaths of all the children in that ward.
All except one. Naruto Uzumaki, who due to sheer, dumb luck, had slept with his face down.
These extraordinary survival feats were nothing compared to what came next.
When he was 5, Naruto was to be taken to the hospital for the regular examination. The van used was filled with 8 children of his age group. The van met with an accident, and was toppled over, killing all the others.
Naruto miraculously survived again, through horrible luck, when he was knocked in a cavity of the van.
That put the nail in the coffin for the orphanage matrons. They could not hold him accountable for the deaths, so they did subtle things to make his life a living hell.
One of them was letting the others bully him.
Today was another such day. Naruto had been quietly reading his school books when Charlie and his troupe came and snatched his book. They began mocking him for doing something so incredibly boring, and that was generally just a waste of time
"Give me back my book!" Naruto yelled, his features tightening in a snarl.
"Why? Stop being the pussycat you are and come and fight us for it!" Charlie taunted in the typical British accent.
Naruto, knowing that there was no way out without a fight, curled his hands and ran towards the teen. He tried to punch but Charlie ducked, letting the punch sail harmlessly above him. Naruto, having already predicted the counter, brought up his leg and kicked the older boy in the chest. Charlie's hit the ground, losing his hold on the book which Naruto deftly caught. The others were flabbergasted. They had never seen their leader be taken down so easily.
Furious over his defeat at the hands of the younger boy, Charlie pointed a finger at him and shouted "What are you fools waiting for! Get him!"
Hearing their leader's voice finally brought them out of their stupors and prompted them to give chase.
Naruto, who was running as fast he could with his smaller legs, dove through the bushes and came out of the other side of the orphanage fence.
Blowing a raspberry at his pursuers, he ran towards the main gate, and dashed straight through the corridors to the head matron of the orphanage.
While running, he had half a mind to use the jumping power he had discovered one day, while running from the kids. He had been running, wishing he would somehow het to his room, and as soon as the thought occurred, he felt a pulling sensation and then, suddenly the surroundings changed to that of his room. After an impromptu vomiting session, he pinched himself, and when it was confirmed that he was not having a dream, he experimented using that power different times. Finally, when he could do it with a 50% success rate, he called it a day.
But right now, there were too many watching eyes. He didn't want to let them know that he really was a freak like they said.
"Ms. Mary, Charlie tried to beat me again!"
"Oh? I don't see any blood or any bruises. Are you lying to me to get attention again?"
"No! I swear! He did hit me!"
"Don't lie Naruto," she said, frowning " we all know who would have started the fight. Do you want to be punished again?"
Just as she had uttered these words, a teary eyed Charlie came running through the door to the matron.
"Mother! I was trying to make friends with Naruto, and see what he did. He also chased me and my friends through the grounds. He said that we were not worth his time." Charlie pleaded in a innocent voice,then, continued " But please, don't punish him. I know he didn't mean those words." The matron looked towards Charlie, concerned etched in her eyes. Seeing his busted lip added even more credence to his story.
Matron, now looking very angry, stood up, and looked towards Naruto with her icy blue orbs.
"You have some nerve. Bullying other children and telling me false stories. You will get your punishment today. Today you will stay in the dark room."
"But-!" Naruto tried to plead, but the matron waved a hand, cutting him off.
"Even if it is your birthday... You will be punished."
Naruto sullenly nodded, wondering why he even tried anymore.
Shook Orphanage, London.
Professor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore was a patient man. But even his patience had limits.
He had just found out about an orphan child who had been using magic.
Imagine his surprise when he arrives to see a carbon copy of his one-time colleague, Minato, running around in the orphanage, occasionally apparating.
Apparating! without a wand!
What's more was that he was ignored and feared by those responsible for him. Shunned by his peers.
This situation was so like Tom Riddle's that he had almost had a heart attack when he saw the boy talking to snakes.
In parsel tongue.
He knew this had to be one of those Merlin's cruel jokes on him.
Then he had checked the boy's name.
He had checked the boy's blood and it was proved true. The boy was probably the last of the Uzumaki line.
So here he was, waiting since half an hour for the matron to bring the child to him, so that he could take him to Hogwarts.
The doors creaked open, and in came two figures.
The matron eyed Dumbledore warily, then nodded and swiftly left.
Dumbledore eyed the scrawny child in front of him. He had a long experience in dealing with emotionally stunted teenagers. So he decided to break the ice.
"Hello, Naruto. My name is Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore, the headmaster of Hogwarts School of witchcraft and wizardry."
Dumbledore noted Naruto's flinch and nodded.
"That's a really, really long name old man."
Either not listening or ignoring Naruto's blatant attempt of steering the conversation off-course, Albus continued,
"You are different from others at the orphanage, are you not? Hogwarts is a place for people like you. You will be able to make friends, among your own kind. You will not be a freak to them. I am giving you a clean slate to write your destiny on. .Will you take it? Will you join my school?"
Naruto scrunched up his face in thought. After a few seconds, he asked an easy yet difficult question.
"Are you sure that I will be able to make friends there?"
Albus knew that somehow, the fate of the world would depend on this question being answered correctly.
"Then I will join Hogwarts...
At this point Albus was sure of Naruto's lineage, for he saw two faces along with his, mouthing the same words, determination burning in their eyes.
Two of the most powerful wizards to grace the wizarding world,
Minato Namikaze and Kushina Uzumaki.
A/N-Basically I wanted to show that Voldemort and Naruto, right now have many similarities. Their are also similarities with Harry but not many. It will be now up to Naruto do decide his own path. Minato's and Kushina's fate will be shown in a later chapter. Sorry for the Naruto bullied cliche. It ends here.
I searched for a Naruto born in HP world fics but none of the results satisfied me. This will be the fic I wanted to read. This will be single pairing, which will be NarutoxHermione. Sorry Ron... In this fic, Naruto will make his own place, and not replace someone. Though he could kill someone else's kill. But he will definitely not take their glory. This is my secondary fic, so updates may be slow but will definitely be there. One more thing- I have seen the HP movies only. So I will not delve into dramatic details of events which were not shown in the movies.
Please review the story. Help make it better.
