Summary: Most wizards who know him would say twenty-eight-year-old Lorcan Scamander has it all. He is tall, handsome, brilliant, athletic, well spoken and charming. Lorcan followed the Scamander family tradition, becoming a highly respected naturalist.
Lorcan enjoys being in strange and exotic places searching for magical creatures and also previously undiscovered flora. His writing includes not only his scientific discoveries, but also his observations of the people and places he’s seen, which have made him a bestselling author not only in wizarding Britain but also the rest of the magical world.
There are a few people, mostly witches with whom he has had affairs, who say he is aloof, arrogant, and totally narcissistic. Lorcan is a bit of a rogue when it comes to women. He is called “love’ em and leave’ em Lorcan” by his brothers. Locan explains this by saying, “Why love one woman when you can make love to many?”
In a strange turn of events, Lorcan is about to reconnect with an old friend who will turn his well-ordered world and his perception of himself upside down.
Summary: Amid the desolation of Diagon Alley, a tiny ray of hope lay buried. Nothing more than a tidbit amid the sweeping despair of Deathly Hallows, yet it would not let go of my imagination. Had I found the casually inserted pivotal clue that would rise like Nicolas Flamel from the pages of the first book? Or had I stumbled upon another Mark Evans: nothing but filler detail in the opening pages of The Order of the Phoenix, JKR having overlooked that he bore the same last name as Harry’s mother?
So I waited for my little gem to bear fruit, to become one of those climactic surprises we should have seen coming, but somehow overlooked. Only it never came to pass. The death count mounted to a staggering high, the epic moments came and went, Snape’s back story was finally revealed, and still nothing.
So it has lain, bereft and unwanted, among the detritus of a Diagon Alley the Death Eaters had turned into a bully’s playground. But in the intervening years, this rough diamond has become the inspiration for this story, spreading its tentacles into new and intriguing territories.
Although Harry mentions Chocolate Frog as the title of Mad-Eye Moody’s autobiography at the end of my previous tale, The Dark Phoenix, this version of the story goes beyond that. Nonetheless, the sections representing Moody’s memoirs are clearly labeled.
This story begins with events recounted in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and continues beyond the end of the series. I have attempted to conform to canon as much as possible, elaborating only where the circumstances are vague or passed over. It is an interpretation of the events that happened behind the scenes, so to speak.
