Summary: When a strange letter arrive for Alfred and Matthew it opens their eyes to a world they never knew existed. One were they belong. Human-verse. Crossover with Harry Potter.
Since the moment Matthew and Alfred were born strange things orbited around them. There were times when Alfred was stronger than any other child, or adult really, had any right to be. There were times when Matthew seemed to disappear completely into thin air.
Objects either reached their destinations too early, jumping down from the top of the stairs and going slower than Newton could ever believe unless he saw it for himself.
Their parents ignored it all. They ignored the obvious signs that something wasn’t right with their kids. Something not normal. If they thought anything of it they immediately forced themselves to forget it.
So they successfully were voluntarily oblivious to it all.
Until the one day in the summer before the twins eleventh birthday when they each got a letter.
It was a normal summer morning at the Jones-Williams household. The family was eating breakfast and were panning their activities for the day.
Their mother glanced at the clock.
“Alfred go get the mail.”
Huffing he stood from his seat, leaving his breakfast unprotected, and left the kitchen.
“Don’t even think about touching my pancakes Matt.” he warned.
Alfred left his house and walked to the mail box. Gathering the letters he started back home as he shifted through the letters.
“Mom. Mom. Dad. Dad. Mom. Matt? Me?” he said peering at the letters addressed to him and his brother.
The envelope and the letter inside felt thick. Instead of a stamp there was a crest of an ‘H’ and a lion, s snake, a badge, and an eagle surrounding it.
He walked into the kitchen and absentmindly dropped the other letters, pushed Matt’s towards him, and sat down still turning over the letter in his hands.
“You boys got letters?” their father asked as Matt took his.
“Yeah.” Alfred said nodding.
He slid a finger under the flap and opened it. He pulled the letter out.
‘Dear Mr. Jones,’ it began.
‘We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted to Hogwarts School of witchcraft and wizardry.’
“What is this, a joke?” his father asked reading over Alfreds shoulder.
Alfred shrugged rereading the letter.
His mom took the letter from Matthews’s hands gently and read it over frowning.
She sighed. “Well whoever did this certainly went to the extremes to make you fall for it.” she said taking the letter from Alfred as well. She ripped them in half before throwing them out.
The family forgot about the letters until the afternoon came and the doorbell rang. Matthew went to answer the door.
“Mom? Dad?” came Matt’s voice.
Then he came into the living room with the guest. Alfred blinked in surprise. The man had blonde shirt hair, bluish eyes, and a curl floating by his head. He was also wearing long, flowing blue robes.
“Mr. Alfred Jones? Mr. Matthew Williams?” he asked looking at the children.
They nodded slowly.
“My name is Professor Nikolai Oxenstierna.” he said. “I teach at Hogwarts School of witchcraft and wizardry. I am here to introduce you to our world.”
Their parents shared a look.
“This is a joke right?” their father asked.
Nikolai shook his head. “I assure you Mr. Jones or Williams. This is no joke. That is a common belief with muggleborn parents.”
“What born parents?”
“Muggles. Non-magic folk ma‘m.”
“And you think our sons aren’t…muggles?”
“I don’t think so sir, I know. Their names have been put down for the school since they were born.”
“Um, sir?” Matthew asked hesitantly.
“Yes Mr. Williams?”
“I think your wrong sir.” he shared an uncertain glance with Alfred. “We can’t be…like that.”
“Really?” Nikolai asked. “Answer me this then. Did you ever make anything happen? Anything strange or you can’t explain?”
“Well…” Alfred trailed off.
“Yes Mr. Jones?”
“There was this one time.” Alfred said hesitantly. “When I was climbing a tree and fell. I sort of floated to the ground.”
“And once I was being chased by some boys.” Matthew said. “And all of a sudden I was invisible. They walked right by me and didn’t see me.”
Nikolai nodded. “That’s a bit advanced for children but there you go. The proof that you need.”
“Wait a second! Wait a second!” their father yelled.
“We will not send our children to some school to learn some magic tricks!” their mother yelled.
“Ma‘m. the Wizarding world is one that is equal or even greater than your own.”
“I don’t care!” she almost screamed. “They will go to a proper school and earn a normal living!”
Nikolai’s eyes were calm. “Alright.”
Surprised at the lack of fight she said “Alright?”
Nikolai nodded. “Alright. Let then stay here. Let their magic go untamed. Let it grow within them with no outlet. Let when they reach puberty for it to explode inside of them. Let it twist their minds into insanity as the magic explodes at random and at anyone.”
He observed the four suddenly pale faces in front of him for a moment.
“Or you could simply allow them to attend Hogwarts. The choice is really up to you.”
