Lilith Pendragon looked up at the vast grounds of Hogwarts, the magic of its wards passing as a weak ministry of magic had been adament in the fact the school should continue. The past years were a race to get all masteries she could. She had once thought of teaching but had then diismissed it. She wasn't able to stay away for long. Camelot was what she always wanted. If she had to play headmistress to get her rightful throne , she would do it. And if she played her part correctly, she would be the once to bring about a pinnacle of changes. The wizarding world , she found out was stuck in the past not moving forward with the endless ripples produced in the non magical counter. A slow smile filled her as she thought about all the chaos that would come was hers and Hogwarts will cease to exist.

Towards the entrance to the castle stood Albus Dumbledore with a frown on his face and next to him a witch she assumed was the Deputy Headmistress.

Lilith POV

"Mr. Dumbledore. Its a surprise seeing you here."

"I thought I would offer my services to the school. I am aware that I am no longer the headmaster. But I would love to stay back to teach the students."

I asked him if the discussed could be moved to where the rest of the staffs are. He complied. I followed him through endless twists and turns, an disarry of direction and space and reached what he termed the headmaster's office.

I introduced myself as Lilith Pendragon. By this time I had embraced this new identity. Arthur and Merlin be damned. This life will be mine to do I as please. And anyone in my way will bw of which, I need to check the wards around this place

I took a look at the staffing and found it terribly dissapointing

The staffing management was terrible. I asked Madam McGonagall if she is able to juggle all three of her responsibilities equally to which she replied curtly that no one has ever complained before. Preposterous!This has to change to I am to be the headmistress.

"There will be a huge staffing change. All staff will meet me for a one to one interview in one also send out notices in the Daily Prophet that staff interviews are taking place." I informed them.

"Mr Dumbledore, if you would accompy me to the ward room."

"Of course. If you would follow me."

The walk to the ward room was long. More and more , I am hating the architecture of the place. Camelot was not magical. But when those four made it magical, the entire castle structure has changing. I was startled out my musings when Dumbledore started a conversation.

"Miss Pendragon, I have never seen you in Hogwarts before. Was your schooling done someplace else?"

"I was in a nunnery for a while and then I schooled myself when I learned about magic" I replied nostagically.

"Nunnery? Were you in the muggle world?"

"The non magical world"I corrected."And yes I was. My mother was a squib and my step father a non magical . And so we did live in the non magical world."

"Hmm.." Dumbledore nodded "

The ward was lit in a silvery glow. The magic tasted rotten and is a curse around this stone. I asked Dumbledore if he knew about this and he told me the tale of Tom Marvalo Riddle.

The story was intriguing even if the heir of Slytherin part was wrong.I wondered where the real heir was. The guants were disowned and stripped of the family name after all.

I looked back at the ward stone. The curse was not that complex. A bit ameturish and nothing a Runes mistress such as myself could not solve.

I spent almost 2 hours weaving magic and strengthing the wards. I added an intent based anti-bullying wards and a dark magic removal layer along with strong protection wards and removed wand functioning from hallways for anyone less than 18 years old, therby prohibiting students from hallyway fighting. As I finished adding the final layer, a scream echoed throughout the castle.
