Chapter 1

Ah, it's a quiet evening at Privet Drive. The Dursley's have some guests to impress, and you're told to remain silent and pretend that you don't exist (somehow a comparatively kind comment by them). Honestly, works fine for you; you've been meaning to get some reading done for next years Transfiguration. Professor McGonagall did not leave you without homework and you did sort of waited until the end of the summer to get to it. 

After about 15 minutes of reading, you lower your book slightly and jump up, clutching your hand to your chest as you notice two tennis ball sized eyes staring right at you from behind your book.

A curious, very loud, creature. He introduces himself as Dobby. Not wanting to attract any more attention to your room, you invite Dobby to sit down.


"'S-sit down!' he wailed.'Never... never ever ...'

Harry thought he heard the voices downstairs falter.

'I'm sorry,' he whispered, 'I didn't mean to offend you or anything.'

'Offend Dobby!' choked the elf. 'Dobby has never been asked to sit down by a wizard - like an equal - '

Dobby's startled by your kind demeanour and is causing quite a commotion what with his sobbing and stomping. He is asking you to not go back to Hogwarts! Obviously, you cannot do that, who in their right minds skip out on Hogwarts, especially when the alternative is this place? But you do need to get him to calm down or you'll be in deep trouble. What do you do? (Click one of the parchments below - clicking on the text will not work so aim at the paper^^)


Falsely promise

that you wont go back


Hogwarts so Dobby



Make no promises

and continue to try

to talk him out of it
