I recently referenced a story I am currently writing that takes place within the world of Harry Potter. You can now read the beginning of it for free here or here. (I recommend the first one since the second didn’t let me keep my formatting.) It’s still a WIP (work in progress) so I’ll be adding to it as I go along.
Secrets Internalized is a short story about a smart and ambitious girl in a war-torn country who gets an internship with a major news organization and immediately begins suffering abuse at the hands of her evil supervisor. She discovers that an old friend from school is hanging around some shady folks and decides to follow the lead, stumbling upon a terrorist plot and putting herself in increasingly more dangerous situations as she gets more and more deeply involved in her determination to rise above her evil boss.
It’s also fan-fiction. So if that’s your thing, maybe you’ll dig it.
My “original” main character is pretty much Spencer Hastings from Pretty Little Liars, set in the 1981 Wizarding world (months before the Potter murders). Here, I have this cool fan art my friend made me to prove it:
I’ll give you one paragraph here so you can see the writing style, but you can see everything that’s currently available by following the links above. Please enjoy:
1 August, 1965.
Beneath a thin crescent moon on the coast of Fylde, all was still but for the gentle waves lapping against the shore and a breeze that whispered of rain. Great clouds loomed over the sea, shrouding even the stubbornest of stars. It might have been impossible to see clearly on such a night on another beach, but this beach happened to be home to a very popular amusement park. Dazzling lights from the roller coasters and Ferris wheel blazed and stretched their way down the coastline for nearly two miles. It was precisely here, where the lights from the park met the edge of darkness, that a short, porcine man by the name of Mr. Niles Smudgeworth stood waiting.
