Chapter 8: Dragon Fire

Sunday, February 13th, 1994

Harry ran through the castle and upstairs passed the gargoyle guarding Dumbledore's office, not even stopping to notice that it let him by without a password. As soon as he made it to the door he heard Dumbledore say enter. Harry opened the door and walked in. When he saw who was inside he immediately drew his wand.

"What's going on here, Dumbledore!?" asked Harry.

"Harry, please calm down. Gellert isn't going to harm either of us. Have a seat, Harry. " said Dumbledore.

Harry lowered his wand, but kept it in his hand as he sat down.

"Now that we're all comfortable, Gellert tells me that you just had a visit from Bellatrix Lestrange. I do miss dear Bellatrix. She was such a fun student." said Dumbledore.

"Is that why you're here, Grindelwald, to spy on me? And you, Dumbledore, why are we having this calm conversation instead of having Aurors here to immediately arrest him?" asked Harry.

"All that would be accomplished from that is a bunch of dead Aurors in Albus' office." said Grindelwald.

"Now now, Gellert, we don't need the threats." said Dumbledore.

"Why I am here was to inform Dumbledore, that Bellatrix has chosen your side in the coming war, Harry. You need to realize that there are more sides in this war than the light and the dark. You have heard Albus referred to as, "The Leader of the Light.", so I'm sure it would surprise you to know that Albus is actually not a light wizard. More grey actually. Bellatrix fits into that category too. She was forced to do horrible things for Voldemort and in the coming war she'll do some almost equally bad things, but she's not a dark witch. Everyone chooses a side. Everyone except you, Harry." said Grindelwald.

"I chose my side. I fight for the light." said Harry.

"No, Harry. You fight for your belief in what's right. You believe in equality, love, hope and what you consider good. You are your side in this war. You might not be ready for it yet, but in the end you'll do things that will have you labeled a dark wizard. Right now the sides of this war are you, Harry, not because you wanted war, but Voldemort chose you. Voldemort's side is obvious, and if he wins what you want and what I want is over." said Grindelwald.

Harry got up and started pacing around the room.

"You have no idea what I want. I want to have never been a part of this. I want my parents to have not been killed by Voldemort. I want every family who has suffered under Dark Lord's like you and Voldemort to get justice. Most of all I want the adults to actually do something for once. The Ministry, the Aurors, the professors and you, Dumbledore. What have you done? I'm in my third year in the Wizarding World, not just at Hogwarts, in this world. First year I came up against Voldemort to save the Sorcerer's Stone, where were the professors, where were you, Dumbledore. The traps you laid were ridiculous not to mention that the damn stone shouldn't have been in a school full of children in the first place. Then when we went to Professor McGonagall, she outright dismissed what we said." said Harry.

"Harry you have to understand…" started Dumbledore.

"Last year, which was my second year in this world, after not being allowed to do magic for three months at my fucking relatives house, I find myself involved in another dangerous situation. Through the petrifications and the message on the wall did you ever consider closing the school? You don't have to answer I know you didn't. I know you didn't contact the Ministry for help either thinking you and the other professors would handle it, but you didn't. You were sacked, Dumbledore because of fucking Lucius Malfoy, the one who slipped the diary to Ginny in the first place causing her to be possessed. What happened to Lucius, oh yeah, nothing. After you were sacked Ron and I had to force the idiot, Lockhart to help us after uncovering that he was a fraud. In the end I have to face a version of Voldemort again along with a sixty foot Basilisk. This was my second year in school and in the magical world. This year has been a little better, but now I have to deal with Voldemort returning to power, Grindelwald here, who apparently you are friends with, Dumbledore. That's a whole other thing to think about. The year is almost over. No physical danger to me, but I proved Sirius was innocent and helped capture the real betrayer of my family and now I have to have a meeting with two Dark Lord's." said Harry as he walked up to Dumbledore's desk. "When are the adults, the ones who are supposed to protect children like me, going to do anything? When, Dumbledore!?"

Harry slammed his hands down on Dumbledore's desk. Grindelwald and Dumbledore were staring at Harry's hands. Harry looked down and saw that his hands had turned into scale covered claws. Harry turned and ran out of the office.

"That was very interesting, Albus. I wonder what else young Mr. Potter has up his sleeves."


Harry found Hermione and took her down to the chamber and showed her his hands.

"How did you do this, Harry?" asked Hermione.

Harry told her what happened in Dumbledore's office.

"I got really mad and when I slammed my hands down, this happened." said Harry.

"Can you change them back?" asked Hermione.

"I'll try." said Harry.

"Try concentrating on what your hands normally look like." said Hermione.

Harry closed his eyes and concentrated and felt a tingling in his hands and when he opened his eyes his hands were back to normal.

"You did it! Now do you think you can change them intentionally?" asked Hermione.

"I don't know. I was really angry and it just happened." said Harry.

"Start there. Concentrate on what your claws looked like and think of something that makes you really angry." said Hermione.

Harry closed his eyes and thought of what happened in Dumbledore's office. That led to him thinking about everything that happened to him at the Dursley's. All the bad memories and the anger built up inside him and he let out a roar. On the plus side, his hands did change into claws, but when he roared, a burst of flame came out of his mouth and caught Hermione's arm setting it on fire. It took a while to get the fire out and after it was extinguished, Hermione passed out.


"How in the hell did Miss Granger come into contact with Dragon fire?" asked Madam Pomfrey.

"I don't know. I found her like that and rushed her here." said Harry looking at Hermione.

Hermione was still unconscious and her arm was covered in several potions that were healing and regrowing her skin.

"Mr. Potter, I know you aren't telling me the truth and I'm sure you have your reasons, but if you're going to continue whatever it is you're doing, be careful." said Madam Pomfrey.

Dumbledore and Professor McGonagall came into the Hospital Wing.

"What happened, Poppy?" asked McGonagall.

"Mr. Potter found Miss Granger unconscious with her arm severely burnt. The burn was caused by Dragon's fire." said Madam Pomfrey.

Dumbledore looked at Harry, but didn't say anything.

"How did she get burned by Dragon's fire?" asked McGonagall.

"It's unknown at this time, but she's recovering well and should be able to be released tomorrow evening." said Madam Pomfrey.

"Excellent. Now, Harry, I'd like to see you in my office." said Dumbledore.

"I'd prefer to not be in your office after what happened in the last meeting." said Harry.

"Mr. Potter, you will accompany Professor Dumbledore immediately. Ten points from Gryffindor for your disrespect." said McGonagall.

"You think I give a damn about points. And disrespect? You'd rethink that if you knew what I know. I'm not going with Dumbledore or anywhere else. I am staying here until Hermione is healed completely and awake. Anyone who disturbs myself or her will regret it. Pass that along to your "friend", Albus." Said Harry dangerously before taking a seat next to Hermione's bed.

"Mr. Potter…" started McGonagall.

"It's ok, Minerva. I will speak to Harry at another time." said Dumbledore.

Dumbledore and McGonagall left the Hospital Wing and Madam Pomfrey made sure Hermione was ok before going to her office. Harry took Hermione's undamaged hand in his and said,

"I'm sorry."
