Summary: At age eleven, Dudley's daughter receives a letter he recognizes very well. As Sinead Dursley embarks on her journey of magical education at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, she strikes up a strange friendship with Lorcan Scamandar. Soon, Lorcan and Sinead rule over a reign of terror at Hogwarts as they subject their fellow students to cruel and dangerous pranks.
The title of this story comes from the poem "Child" by Sylvia Plath. Also, I would like to thank Royari for being an amazing beta.
I really love the story so far. I love how Dudley completely changed his perspective on magic because of his daughter. I love Lorcan, Freddie, and Cillian. It is very intriguing. I can't wait for the rest!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! It means a lot to me that you like the characters. :)
We are all influenced by the actions or inactions of our parents. The same is true of Scorpius Malfoy; he has been raised by an overly protective mother and a father who is still coming to grips with the mess that his own father made of his life. Scorpius knows that he will be judged at Hogwarts by what others know or think they know about his father and grandfather.
At Hogwarts Scorpius will meet:
Albus Potter the middle child of ‘The Great Harry Potter’ and Quidditch star Ginny Weasley Potter. A boy who not only has things to live up to but an older brother ready to remind him of who’s boss.
Rose Weasley, Albus’ surrogate sister/first cousin, struggling in her own way, not her mother’s way, to succeed.
Kaitlin Jones, daughter of Tornados player Owain Jones and favorite niece of Gwenog Jones, who is at home on a broom and lost almost everywhere else.
Jimber Dokes recent immigrant from the West Indies trying to fit his own magical heritage Vardoo with the Western style of magic taught at the school
Thad Vance, the Gryffindor Quidditch captain, his grandfather and all of his uncles and aunts were killed by Death Eaters, maybe Lucius Malfoy
Meanwhile in London, Draco and Astoria Malfoy try to build a new life and legacy by betting all they own on a Potions Shop in Diagon Alley.

This was an awesome story. I loved how after everything that happened in the past, Draco has changed into a kinder person.
WOW! I am loving the suspense. I cannot wait for more!
Summary: It's been two years since Fred Weasley's death, and George isn't doing so well. Actually, he's a total mess. Sitting on the same bench in the same park, he comes to hide in the Muggle world, in hope that his pain will eventually fade away.
An unusual encounter, a helping hand, sometimes that's all that it takes to put the past behind. Until the day three simple words are spoken: fight with me.
I very much liked the suspense. It was a good story, truth be told. I like ow George becomes a more serious person, and this Valerie person helps him overcome his loss.
Summary: Sirius loved her more than life itself but never spoke of her. This is why.
I love it. Beautiful! I love that Sirius is a sweet, loving who loved somebody. It is an amazing story!
Author's Response: Thank you! I like to think under all that arrogance and craziness, that heart that shown through at times was a large one!
