Fluffy Imprints, a harry potter fanfic | FanFiction
Fluffy is an extremely large three-headed dog, apparently loyal to Hagrid. A couple of weeks later, Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Neville stumble into this hallway. 'Don't you think it's a bit odd,' said Harry, scrambling up the grassy slope, 'Well – yeah – how many three-headed dogs d'yeh meet, even around Hogwarts? Harry, Ron and Hermione didn't speak to each other at all until they came to a. Harry, Ron, and Hermione sat together next to a window. He pushed the door ajar and peered inside - and a horrible scene met his eyes. .. Scooping the fire off him into a little jar in her pocket, she scrambled back along the row "Fluffy?" "Yeah -- he's mine -- bought him off a Greek chappie I met in the pub las' year -- I .
The day before Harry's first Quidditch match the three of them were out in the freezing courtyard during break, and she had conjured them up a bright blue fire that could be carried around in a jam jar. They were standing with their backs to it, getting warm, when Snape crossed the yard. Harry noticed at once that Snape was limping. Harry, Ron, and Hermione moved closer together to block the fire from view; they were sure it wouldn't be allowed. Unfortunately, something about their guilty faces caught Snape's eye.
He hadn't seen the fire, but he seemed to be looking for a reason to tell them off anyway. Five points from Gryffindor. The Gryffindor common room was very noisy that evening. Harry, Ron, and Hermione sat together next to a window.
Hermione was checking Harry and Ron's Charms homework for them. She would never let them copy "How will you learn? He wanted Quidditch Through the Ages back, to take his mind off his nerves about tomorrow.
Why should he be afraid of Snape? Getting up, he told Ron and Hermione he was going to ask Snape if he could have it. He made his way down to the staffroom and knocked. There was no answer. Perhaps Snape had left the book in there?
It was worth a try. He pushed the door ajar and peered inside - and a horrible scene met his eyes. Snape and Filch were inside, alone. Snape was holding his robes above his knees. One of his legs was bloody and mangled.
Filch was handing Snape bandages.

He sprinted back upstairs. That's where he was going when we saw him -- he's after whatever it's guarding! And I'd bet my broomstick he let that troll in, to make a diversion! I wouldn't put anything past Snape. But what's he after? What's that dog guarding? Neville was snoring loudly, but Harry couldn't sleep. He tried to empty his mind -- he needed to sleep, he had to, he had his first Quidditch match in a few hours - but the expression on Snape's face when Harry had seen his leg wasn't easy to forget.
The next morning dawned very bright and cold. The Great Hall was full of the delicious smell of fried sausages and the cheerful chatter of everyone looking forward to a good Quidditch match. In an hour's time he'd be walking onto the field. By eleven o'clock the whole school seemed to be out in the stands around the Quidditch pitch. Many students had binoculars. The seats might be raised high in the air, but it was still difficult to see what was going on sometimes. As a surprise for Harry, they had painted a large banner on one of the sheets Scabbers had ruined.
It said Potter for President, and Dean, who was good at drawing, had done a large Gryffindor lion underneath. Then Hermione had performed a tricky little charm so that the paint flashed different colors. Meanwhile, in the locker room, Harry and the rest of the team were changing into their scarlet Quidditch robes Slytherin would be playing in green.
Wood cleared his throat for silence. We're going to win. Good luck, all of you. Madam Hooch was refereeing. She stood in the middle of the field waiting for the two teams, her broom in her hand. Harry noticed that she seemed to be speaking particularly to the Slytherin Captain, Marcus Flint, a sixth year.
Harry thought Flint looked as if he had some troll blood in him. Out of the corner of his eye he saw the fluttering banner high above, flashing Potter for President over the crowd.

Madam Hooch gave a loud blast on her silver whistle. Fifteen brooms rose up, high, high into the air. No sign of the Snitch yet, eh?
Way up above them, Harry was gliding over the game, squinting about for some sign of the Snitch. This was part of his and Wood's game plan. Now he was back to staring around for the Snitch. Once he caught sight of a flash of gold, but it was just a reflection from one of the Weasleys' wristwatches, and once a Bludger decided to come pelting his way, more like a cannonball than anything, but Harry dodged it and Fred Weasley came chasing after it.
In a great rush of excitement he dived downward after the streak of gold. Slytherin Seeker Terence Higgs had seen it, too. Neck and neck they hurtled toward the Snitch -- all the Chasers seemed to have forgotten what they were supposed to be doing as they hung in midair to watch. Harry was faster than Higgs -- he could see the little round ball, wings fluttering, darting up ahead -- he put on an extra spurt of speed -- WHAM!
A roar of rage echoed from the Gryffindors below -- Marcus Flint had blocked Harry on purpose, and Harry's broom spun off course, Harry holding on for dear life. Madam Hooch spoke angrily to Flint and then ordered a free shot at the goal posts for Gryffindor.
But in all the confusion, of course, the Golden Snitch had disappeared from sight again. Down in the stands, Dean Thomas was yelling, "Send him off, ref! Hagrid, however, was on Dean's side. Flint coulda knocked Harry outta the air. Flint nearly kills the Gryffindor Seeker, which could happen to anyone, I'm sure, so a penalty to Gryffindor, taken by Spinner, who puts it away, no trouble, and we continue play, Gryffindor still in possession.
His broom gave a sudden, frightening lurch. When they arrived at the Trophy Roomthe intended site of the duel, Malfoy was nowhere to be found. To avoid being caught by Argus Filchthey ran away and ended up in the forbidden area on the third floor, staring at a massive three-headed dog. Despite being furious about having broken countless school rules, Hermione had noticed that the dog was standing on a trap door, and clearly guarding something.
They later deduced, from hints about Nicolas Flamel dropped unintentionally by Hagrid, that this "something" was the Philosopher's Stone. Fluffy angry-looking after the trio disturbed them Later that year, Hagrid happily told the trio that he had a won a dragon egg in a card game at the Hog's Head. Thinking that it was too much of a coincidence that, as Hagrid had always dreamed of owning a dragonsomeone just happened to show up at the local pub with a dragon egg, the trio questioned Hagrid about the supposed dragon dealer.
Upon finding out that Hagrid had never even seen the man's face, as he wore a hood, yet Hagrid had drunkenly told him how to get past Fluffy, they came to the conclusion that the hooded man must have been Severus Snapewhen it was really Professor Quirrell.
Before Hagrid told Quirrell, though he didn't know it was Quirrell, Hagrid and Dumbledore were the only ones who knew how to get past Fluffy. As that meant the stone was no longer safe, they decided to go after Snape themselves, and Harry brought along the flute that Hagrid had given him for Christmas to use in lulling Fluffy to sleep.

Arriving at the room, they noticed an enchanted harp at a sleeping Fluffy's feet, and believed that Professor Snape was already on his way to retrieving the stone.
Fluffy soon awoke, as the enchantment on the harp wore off, and it stopped playing. As Harry played the flute, which almost immediately put Fluffy back to sleep, Ron crept over to the trap door and opened it, but was unable to see anything below. Hermione took over playing the flute, while Harry jumped in first, followed by Ron.
After they called up to Hermione that it was safe, she stopped playing and jumped down the trap door just in time, as Fluffy woke up as soon as the music stopped. After Fluffy's duties were done, and the Stone was destroyed, Hagrid set Fluffy free temporarily in the Forbidden Forest. One known way to calm Fluffy was to play music, which made him fall asleep.
