    Ok, I have my next bit. I forgot to toss Ron and Harry in but I’ll get there soon enough. Please let me know anything I should change about writing the Wingfeathers!

    ~~~~~

    “Who are you?” Hermione demanded, brandishing her wand in the direction of the eldest boy. He looked down to his sword, which had just recently clattered to the floor.

    “I’m Janner Wingfeather,” He said slowly, looking up to her with bright blue eyes. “This is my brother Kalmar, and my sister, Leeli. Who are you? Are you from Anniera as well?”

    “I’m Hermione Granger, student at Hogwarts. This is Hagrid,” she said, gesturing to her friend. “And no, we’re not from… Anniera. Is that what this place is called?”

    “No. I have no idea where we are,” Janner replied. He was silent for a moment. “Do you mind pointing that away from me?” He asked, gesturing to her wand. Hermione eyed him suspiciously, and then lowered her arm to her side. Janner retrieved his sword and sheathed it. He moved back to his sister and brother, who had relaxed their weapons as well, and returned Hermione’s cool gaze.

    “So… you’re a student at Hogwarts, you said?” Kalmar suddenly asked, head tilted, and a smile quirking the side of his mouth. “A bit of a strange choice for a name.”

    Hermione gave Kalmar a withering look and lifted her chin primly. “I’ll have you know that the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is a highly renowned establishment in the wizarding world. Isn’t that right, Hagrid?”

    “That it is, Kalmar Wingfeather,” Hermione’s large friend agreed. “An’ ‘Ermione’s the smartest student in it.” At this Hermione blushed and looked to the floor.

    “…I’m not the same person that I was…”
    “Some folks only grow more beautiful.”

    Janner whacked Kalmar on the arm.

    “Don’t laugh at their school!” He scolded. Janner turned to the people– no, Hermione and Hagrid and smiled apologetically. “Sorry about this idiot,” he said. “For the High King of Anniera, he can be awfully dim-witted sometimes.”

    Hermione and Hagrid froze, and Janner realized his mistake.

    “High King of Anniera? W-w-what in the name of Merlin’s left sock!” (I think that’s one of their exclamations)

    All three siblings turned as red as a fireberry.

    “Ummm… How ’bout you ignore that statement?”

    Hermione looked at them. “But–” Crash.

    “Ouch!”

    Hermione looked at Hagrid with shock.

    “It’s Harry and Ron!”

    What did you think? And just in case you don’t remember, don’t forget Leeli’s crutch, as that could something that the Wizarding World might find strange, as they have potions that could fix that.

    The story is coming along nicely!

    Oh, yes, thank you for that reminder… (note to self, implement that into next post.) That little detail could be one way they determine that they are from different worlds.

    Yeah, I guess so. I forgot to describe some of the places in the Wingfeathers’ world, so here they are:

    Aerwiar: World of the Wingfeathers. Called such because on the morning of the first day in Aerwiar, Dwayne (the first man in Aerwiar) said to the first thing he saw, “Well, here we are.” The first thing he saw was a rock. Anyway, the first sentence was passed down until all speaking creatures referred to the world around them as Aerwiar.

    Anniera: Small island off the coast of Dang and the Green Hollows. The royal family, instead of the oldest being the high king or queen, the second born is, and the oldest protects the King/Queen and is called the Throne Warden. The third-born is the Song Maiden or Song Master, and all the children after are Lore Wains, which are weavers of tales, and travel Anniera’s shores keeping Anniera’s stories alive in the hearts of the people.

    Skree: One of the two main continents of Aerwiar. Some of the more well known towns are Glipwood (Igibys/Wingfeathers lived here for nine years), Torrboro, and Dugtown.

    There’s more but I’m gonna get off the computer. Bye!

    I’m back!

    Green Hollows: Country next to Dang. Very boisterous people who remind me of the Scots and the Irish. Culture involves a lot of fighting and fruit (no, I’m not kidding. They adore fruit and battle ridgerunners, which will most likely be described at some point, who want to steal it.). Durgans are from here. The Blackwood is also here.

    Dang: Country next to the Green Hollows. The Hollows and Dang are separated by the Killridge Mountains, where sits the Castle Throg, former home of the villain Gnag the Nameless. Fangs (they look like bats, lizards, and wolves that wear clothes and act like very mean humans) originated here, hence the name ‘Fangs of Dang’. Little more is known about this dangerous land.

    Jungles of Plonst: Trolls live here.

    Places Beyond the Maps: I really don’t know too much about this place, and what I do know involves spoilers. Hopefully I’ll learn more when the Wingfeather Tales come out.

    That’s most of the important places. Most of the (very strange) animals will be explained by the Wingfeathers to your characters.

    Wow! Thanks for writing this all out. It’ll be pretty interesting to see the characters learn about each other’s worlds.

    You’re welcome! And I totally agree! They all come from totally different worlds, so it will be very interesting to how they interact.

    Do you think you could write a bit of the story to get us rolling again?

    Yes, sorry, I had church and a Bible club today so haven’t had a ton of time to write. I’ll try to get something up.

    “Its Harry and Ron!”

    “Hermione? Hagrid? What’s going on? Not a second ago Ron and I were in the Gryffindor common room!” Harry said, adjusting his round glasses with agitation. He turned to the three Wingfeather kids standing on the other side of the room. “Oh. Hi there.” Leeli waved, and Harry gave her a lopsided grin.

    Ron leaned in Hermione’s direction and whispered, “Who are they?”

    “Harry and Ron, meet Janner, Kalmar, and Leeli Wingfeather,” Hermione said, pointing to each of the siblings. She paused and eyed them suspiciously. “They claim to be royalty.”

    Ron stared at the siblings, and then looked to Hermione.
    “I expected her to be taller,” He muttered. “And I didn’t think the muggle queen had a bad leg.” Harry frowned and jabbed Ron in the ribs with his elbow. Leeli blushed and lowered her head, moving her crippled limb behind her. At this Janner’s fists clenched, and Hermione caught his hand straying toward his sword.

    “She’s not the queen of England, Ron!” Hermione exclaimed in exasperation. “And don’t be so blunt!” She looked apologetically toward their three acquaintances. “I’m really sorry about him, he means nothing by it! Isn’t that right, Ron Weasley?”

    Ron shuffled his feet and studied the ground abashedly.

    “Right, right, ‘m real sorry, miss Leeli.”

    “…I’m not the same person that I was…”
    “Some folks only grow more beautiful.”

    Leeli sighed and smiled.

    “It’s all right. And Hermione’s right. I’m not the Queen of… What did you call it? England? My brother Kalmar–” Here she gestured to her brother. “Is the High King of Anniera. I’m just the Song Maiden. And my brother Janner is the Throne Warden.”

    The wizards and witch looked at them curiously.

    “Buttt…” Ron stammered. “Isn’t he–” He pointed to Janner. “Older?”

    The siblings looked at each other, and their lips twitched.

    Janner turned back towards the other group and started to explain.

    “Yes, I’m older, but in Anniera the second-born is the queen or king. The oldest protects the king or queen, and whatever siblings come after. The third-born is the Song Maiden or Song Master, and all that are born after are Lore Wains.” Janner gave them a confused look. “I guess you’re not from Aerwiar?”

    The other group looked at each other.

    “No,” said Hermione. “We’ve never heard of Aerwiar. Nor Anniera for that matter.”

    The two groups looked in silence at each other for a minute, then Harry spoke.

    “But, why isn’t your father king if you’re just kids?”

    At this all three Wingfeather children stiffened and looked at each other sadly.

    “He’s… dead.” said Kalmar.

    All the children looked to the ground. The wizards looked at each other, unsure what to say.

    “I lost my parents, too,” Harry finally said, breaking the tense silence.

    Leeli gave him a sympathetic look. “I’m sorry,” she said.

    “It’s all right. They… I never knew them. I was very young when it happened.”

    Hermione reached out and placed a comforting hand on Harry’s shoulder. Fang padded over to Harry and shoved his enormous, squarish, head under the boy wizard’s arm. Harry chuckled as his arm was lifted nearly up to his shoulder.

    “Good boy, Fang,” Harry smiled.

    “Fang’s his name?” Leeli asked, perking up at the sight of the big dog. The boarhound lifted his ears and looked at her. His tongue lolled out of the side of his mouth as he trotted over to Leeli.

    She giggled and reached down to stroke his thick black fur.

    “Fang likes yeh,” Hagrid said, looking fondly down to his pet. “Ye must be a good ‘un, Missy Wingfeather.”

    “…I’m not the same person that I was…”
    “Some folks only grow more beautiful.”
