Blood is Thicker Than Water
Harry Potter group story with IHAVEANEGGBABY
Melanie and Madeline Parks are twin sisters currently in their fourth year at Hogwarts. They are both extremely smart, but choose to use their brains in different ways. Melanie was sorted into Slytherin despite her muggle parents and sociable demeanor. Madeline was sorted into Ravenclaw, although doesn't obsess over her school work and doesn't focus on her social status.
This story will include flashbacks that will be in italics.
Waving goodbye to Mel, I took a seat at the Ravenclaw table, within only a few moments, the first years arrived and they began to sort them. I still remember when we first placed the Sorting Hat on...
"Madeline Parks," Professor McGonagall called out. I hesitantly walked towards the stool. Having only learned of the magical world within the last month, you can imagine I was quite nervous. I was also quite frightened when the hat began to speak to me.
"No, much to loving to be a Slytherin, though you have the brains. But to manipulative to be a Hufflepuff, though you have the heart. Are you brave, Madeline?"
"You have Gryffindor potential, but you are a bit to sensitive. My mind is made up. RAVENCLAW." It announced.
I remember not knowing much about the houses, only a little of what each stood for. The Ravenclaw's orderly clapped as they welcomed me into their house. Melanie was sorted next, and I was devastated as she didn't enter the same house as me.
For the next year, many people questioned us. How can you be identical twins (the only difference being Mel has straight hair, and I have wavy,) and not be in the same house? But there was actually another case of it, in our year even. I had a fellow Ravenclaw named Padma, whose twin Parvati was in Gryffindor. At least I didn't end up in Gryffindor, it would have been very hard for me and Mel to hang out.
Though Ravenclaw made it pretty hard. Most of them don't talk to anyone who is not in our house. That's why I like Ginny's friend Luna. Like me, she doesn't really care that she's smart. She embraces it, but doesn't shove it in other people's faces.
That's who I chose to sit with, during this amazing feast. Even though she is a year below me, and can be quite strange, she is most likely my best friend in Ravenclaw. Honestly I have more friends in Gryffindor than anyone.
Staying with the Weasley's, me and Mel are both pretty close with Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and the twins. And then we both have separate friends too. I hang out with Luna, Neville, and sometimes Padma, when I have no other choice. I have also began tutoring a Gryffindor boy named Seamus Finnigan, who I have become close with. He recently introduced me to his friend Dean, who seems nice. They don't get on too well with Mel though, on account of her being a Slytherin and all.
As for Melanie, she has two very close friends. Blaise and Cedric. How she can like two totally different people, amazes me. I like Cedric okay, though Hufflepuffs tend to annoy me. Mel puts up with them much better than I ever could. Blaise, though - I cannot stand. I give her the freedom to hang out with whoever she chooses, after all, she thinks Luna is a freak- but Blaise?
He's everything a Slytherin embodies, arrogant, rude, cruel, and most of all, good-looking. And I don't want him to use that to get to Mel. She is completely oblivious to the way he talks about her. How confident he is that one day she'll like him back.
But she won't, because I know Mel, and she is smarter than that. Plus she knows I hate him, and I believe that means something to her.
As soon as the feast is over, I head to the Ravenclaw common room. Pausing to answer the Eagle's Riddle.
"It's between heaven and earth and is not on a tree.In this riddle I have told you but you can't tell me."
I thought for a minute. "A knot on a tree." I responded.
"Correct," The door opened.
"Nice one, Mattie." Luna smiled. I smiled back and headed into my dorm, which I shared with Cho Chang, Padma Patil, Helen Dawlish, and Marietta Edgecombe. All of which gave me condolences for the loss of my parents. Padma was my favorite of the four, so I chatted with her for a bit, and then settled down to bed.
