I'm an American college student trying to figure out my writing strengths & styles by playing around with J.K. Rowling's ideas. The Harry Potters books were a huge part of my childhood, and I hope my stories do them justice.

The Abyss Gazes by Calico
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 8]


“If you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.”

-Friedrich Nietzsche

Scorpius Malfoy has avoided Althea Burbage – and everyone else at Hogwarts – for five long years. Who, he thinks, would want to be friends with the son of a Death Eater? Certainly not a girl whose aunt was murdered before the eyes of his father and grandfather.

Unfortunately, Thea doesn't seem to agree.

The Discovery by Calico
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 4]

Summary: By their third week at Hogwarts, Fred and George already have a reputation for mischief and mayhem; the only thing standing in the way of perfect pranking is the complexity of the castle itself (not to mention a certain insufferable brother). But when the twins happen upon a piece of magical, mysterious, and ill-mannered parchment, they may end up in rather more trouble than they bargained for. How will those two wily Weasleys earn the trust and unlock the secrets of the Marauders Map?
