Universe: Harry Potter (wha? Fanfiction?!)
OC: Lacrimosa Rose Donovan – Goes by Lacria by her friends and Ria by a very select few. Story takes place end of year 1 of Hogwarts.
Lacria tried not to let the rocking of the train lull her to sleep but it was almost impossible. She’d never imagined that her first year at Hogwarts would have been filled with so much work. Granted, she’d enjoyed everything she’d learned…well, History of Magic she could do without, but most of it was rather enjoyable. She’d even managed to find Professor Mcgonagall’s dry humor to be quite amusing by the time the year was over.
By the time exams rolled around, Lacria was filled with excitement for the summer and fear for the tests. The letters announcing their grades would be sent their homes during the summer, but Lacria figured that she wouldn’t read the letter until closer to the end of summer. Especially since she wasn’t even going to be in England for most of the summer.
It had been strange, receiving a letter from the set of grandparents who lived in India. The letter she’d received just before Christmas had been very vague and had risen more questions than had answered. Lacria had a thousand questions to ask about the mother she never knew, but hoped that they would all be answered during her stay in India.
She smiled, thinking back to the argument that had ensued with her father and her stepmother during the Christmas holiday. She’d made her case quite well, that she was more of an outcast than an actual member of the family. Had made a list of reasons why she should be allowed to travel to India, despite the fervent (yet very strange) pleas of her stepmother to stay.
But Lacria had said that she would go to India and there was no changing her mind. For almost two months she’d be with her family. Maybe she might actually find a place to belong. Who knew what they’d teach her?
