A/N- this is my first fanfiction. I hope you like it!

Chapter 1: Platform 9¾ and the Hogwarts Express

Albus-Severus was waiting for the 'ok' to go through the platform between 9 and 10, which was the where the Hogwarts express waited for the students to enter. It was Albus-Severus' first year going to Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. James, Albus's brother was already off, talking to his friends. Albus was standing closely to his parents, Harry Potter and Ginny 'Weasley' Potter. Harry's daughter Lily was upset that she was still to young to go to Hogwarts, and that she would be alone while her brothers were at Hogwarts. "Mom, why can't I go to Hogwarts? I am a witch. I should be able to go." Lily complained to her mom. Ginny just smiled and chuckled the slightest bit.

"You are not old enough, sweetheart. Soon you will be able to join your brothers at school. But, it is Albus's turn to join Hogwarts." She told Lily this is a calm soothing tone. "We will have fun too, I promise." Lily looked calmer after this. She smiled and laid her head against her mother. "Come Albus, we need to get you a seat on the train, before it leaves." Ginny yelled out.

Albus-Severus went to Harry and asked, "What I'm in Slytherin?" Harry crouched down so that Albus's face was slightly above his own. Alone of Harry's three children, Albus had inherited his grandmothers eyes.

"Albus Severus," Harry said quietly, so that nobody but Ginny could hear and she was tactful enough to pretend to be waving to Rose, who now was on the train, "you were named for two headmasters of Hogwarts. One of them was a Slytherin and he was probably the bravest man I ever knew." Albus was just looking now at his father confused but with a slight smile on his face.

Albus then spoke, "But just say-"

"—Then Slytherin house, will have gained an excellent student, won't it? It doesn't matter to us, Al. But if it matters to you, you'll be able to choose Gryffindor over Slytherin. The sorting hat takes your choice into account."


"It did for me," said Harry. Albus now was in awe over his father now. His father always impressed him, but today may have changed his life. "Now lets get you onto the train, Albus Severus Potter. Being late is probably not a good thing to happen your first year." They both nodded and went to join the rest of the family. Albus said goodbye to his family and went to get a seat on the train. The whistle blew and they were off on a journey to Hogwarts.

Albus sat next to his brother James and across from Lobert. Lobert was of course a family friend since he was Neville and Luna Longbottom's son. Lobert has been friends with James and Albus since he was young. Lobert was only going to be a first year as ell as Albus.

Albus was very nervous about his first year. He wasn't sure he would do any good for his house. Albus was thinking about what his father had said and the sorting hat. He hoped that the sorting hat did what it did for his father. When the snack trolley came along on it usual route through the trains hallway, Albus bought a package of Bertie Bott's Every Flavor beans and Chocolate Frogs. Albus ate a jellybean and stuck out his tongue, "Ew! I got an Earwax flavored one," he pulled out another one, "Lets try this one," he then placed it in his mouth and gagged, "Yuck! That was gross! I believe it was a booger- flavored one. Nasty!" he exclaimed very loudly. James snickered. "You try one then!" and handed one to James, "Eat it!" Then he laughed. James tossed it into the air and caught in his mouth. "Show-off!" Albus exclaimed. James chewed on it and swallowed it.

"Haha! I got a peppermint flavor one! Haha!" James said. After he said that, Lobert bursted into a fit of laughter. Albus just gave a rude glare to James and Lobert. "We better get into our robes. I expect we will be arriving soon." James told Albus and Lobert. Lobert groaned, as Albus sat there getting more nervous then before. "Chill out Al, its not that bad. You will listen to the rules of the castle, then start of year announcements, listen to the sorting hats song, then get sorted into your house, and then eat at the feast with your fellow classmates." James got up to retrieve his robes in his trunk. Lobert followed, not knowing what to do. Albus just sat there.

"I can do this!" Albus mumbled trying to encourage himself. "I am not a scardy wizard! I am Albus Severus Potter, son or Harry Potter and Ginny 'Weasley' Potter. I am a wizard going to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, this year!" he told himself. He then got us to change into his new robes, with a grin on his face.

A/N- what did you think of it? I had written it like months before actually typing it. I haven't had the time though to actually get it typed or edited so that I could add it. But a few days ago I was just in dire need to add it, so I had my friend over who used fanfiction (felineofoz) and asked her to edit and she said okay and edited it so then this weekend I was able to type it and add it! YAY!

And Kate haha I actually got rid of using Teddy and decided to use a whole new made up character. Now it is Lobert. Did you see who the parents were? I knew you would love who they were.

Hopefully I can update soon!

Please read and review!
