Chloe is content with her quiet life amid her Muggle parents' fear of magic.  But after suffering a brutal attack at the hands of would-be Death Eaters, Chloe is thrust into a world both exhilarating and terrifying.  Marlene McKinnon and her friends, the Marauders, are rule-breakers.  They leave laughter and chaos in their wake.  They are everything that Chloe thought she never wanted, least of all Sirius Black: cavalier, reckless and so strangely alluring.  As the years pass, Chloe's infatuation with Marlene and Sirius forces her to question where her loyalties lie in the shadow of a rising war.

When Finlay Blishwick returns to Hogwarts for his sixth year, he expects his entitled life alongside Tom Riddle to continue as it always has. They are even tasked with finding Henry Potter's illegitimate child for Grindelwald. What Finn doesn't expect, however, is how short the fall from grace really is, and that it leads straight into the arms of dynamic Hufflepuff Brindley McCroy.

“I don’t think he got the memo that ‘Puffs are supposed to be friendly,” James had said once to a reporter, who had promptly printed the quote followed by a description of Albus’ friends: “The most hostile badgers I’ve had the misfortune to meet.”

 

 

NOW AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER!!

 

As the recent scandal surrounding the Boy-Who-Lived’s middle child sparks unprecedented interest from the public, Rita Skeeter has named Albus Potter as the star of the latest instalment in her ‘Life and Lies’ series, set to be released on 31st March, 2022. The Daily Prophet Press are expecting the most sensational bestseller of the century, as Skeeter digs into the secrets of the anti-social Potter and his best friends: a juvenile delinquent, a Quidditch star, a heartbreaker, and a genius.

 

Prepare for an exposé that will answer the questions on everyone’s lips: How did a boy like Albus end up in Hufflepuff? Why do the Potters work so hard to keep him out of the limelight? And who is the mysterious stranger he was seen kissing on New Year’s Eve?

Then the King flew into a passion, and ordered a dark tower to be built, into which no ray of sunlight or moonlight should enter. When it was finished, he said, “Therein shalt thou be imprisoned for seven years, and then I will come and see if thy perverse spirit is broken.” Meat and drink for the seven years were carried into the tower, and then she and her waiting-woman were led into it and walled up, and thus cut off from the sky and from the earth...

 

A story of love on the American prairie.

 

Inspired by 'Maid Maleen,' as collected and recorded by the Brothers Grimm, for nott theodore's Fairy Tale Challenge.
