CTaFA Chapter 28
Madam Pomphrey was surprised to see Harry up and about within the first twentyfour hours. "Are you sure you are alright Mr. Potter?" She asked unsurely. She was sure he should have at least been in bed for another day or so.
"I'm fine." He said shortly as he pulled his own clothes on opposed to the hospital pajamas he was wearing when he woke up. "Where is Sirius?"
She seemed to agree that he was fine. He looked as healthy as ever. "He and Remus went to breakfast and said they would be back right after." She walked over to the empty bed where Snape had been staying to change the bedding. The potions master had left as soon as he woke up at six. The only people left in the hospital wing who were still sick were Ginny, Rose and Draco. She had moved the red head next to Rose so it would be easier to keep an eye on all of them, just in case.
As soon as she looked towards the bed next to Harrys she gasped a little. Draco was putting on his clothes as well. "Well it seems that you boys like

The Mediwitches worked throughout the day and couldn't figure out what mysterious curse the five sleeping individuals were under. It was a complete anomally. "I don't know what it could be." One of the witches said frustrated.
"Rose..." They heard a whisper come from Harry's bed and he began to stir. He sat up without opening his eyes and reached over to his night stand to find his glasses. He finally found them and brought them to his face. When they were in their rightful place he opened his emerald eyes and looked around the room tiredly.
"How are you?" Lupin asked and Harry's head whipped around to look at him. "Sorry I didn't mean to startle you."
"It's fine." He said trying to calm his rapidly beating heart. "Actually, I don't feel so hot." He said turning back to Rose. "In fact, it's freezing in here. What's the deal?" He coughed a few times and held his head as it throbbed in pain.
"We aren't really sure why, but you, Rose, Draco, Ginny, and Snape all have some sort of cold clo

She woke up wrapped in someones arms. She didn't really want to wake up because of the giant headache she had so she snuggled into the warm body which made her head hurt worse. "Rose?" She heard Sirius's voice faintly in her ear. It felt like she was in a dream. "Rose, are you alright?" She was growing irritated. She tried to open her eyes but found that they were too heavy.
"They need their rest Mr. Black." Madam Pomphreys voice was just as faint. She decided that Pomphrey was probably right and went back to sleep.
"Do you know when they will wake?" Sirius asked her.
"At least a day or two." She explained. "They drained a lot of energy with that stunt of theirs." She sighed as she walked toward a window to pull the shade shut. "I wish Minerva would come back and rest some more, but i suppose she is doing the right thing."
"Yes, she is a stubborn one." Lupin was sitting next to Harry's bed watching, and waiting for any sign of movement besides his slow steady breathing. "I'm glad she i
CTaFA Chapter 25
Needless to say the battle had become one sided. Dumbledore was gone, there was no way to attack Voldemort with Rose in the way, and they were all becoming exhausted. All they were accomplishing at the moment was not dying.
Many bodies littered the ground inside and outside of the giant hole created by the Spiders, who had all gone back to the Forbidden Forest with plenty more bodies to feed their young.
'Dont worry Rose I'm coming.' Ginny thought as she crept towards her dark haired friend carefully so she wouldn't be caught herself. She was almost their when something wrapped around her ankles making her fall backwards onto her butt. Whatever had ahold of her began dragging her in the same direction she was heading, she panicked and tried to free herself. When she brought her hands down to remove the vice grip she found that it had scales and saw a big snake dragging her across the ground.
"Good Nagini." She heard the high voice of the Dark Lord. When the snake stopped dragging her t

Even though nobody got more then three hours of sleep everyone seemed wide awake. They had no idea when the attack was going to take place, but they were going to be ready. The staff decided that they should not trap themselves inside the castle, so they planned on the battle occuring outside. The backup students would stay in the castle, or in other words the students Dumbledore didn't want to see the battle would be confined to the castle.
The wards around the school were strengthened to slow down rather than stop the inevitable battle. The statues inside the school were enchanted to move and fight, the adults paired up with students, and Hagrid was sent to the Forbidden Forest to try and persuade Aragog, his giant spider friend, to help out if he could.
A few of the students practiced the spells they had learned in their last Defense Against the Dark Arts classes. Some of them were a little off, but they would work none-the-less.
"I hope this works." Harry said while handing Rose th
