PREVIEW: Harry Potter Week, including brand-new story "Children of the Night"

If you’ve ever read my work before, you know I’m a huge Harry Potter fan; last year, to celebrate the release of Deathly Hallows Part 1, I published a seven-part article over the course of one week detailing all my favorite Potter memories – and on the eighth day, published my review of the new film. 

For the final Harry Potter film, I’ve decided to do something different.  Last year’s “memories” article will actually reappear here on the blog very soon, but for now, I’m celebrating “Harry Potter Week,” July 11-15, with a brand new, 4-part story set in the Harry Potter universe (and another, far less cool universe), a story that is a celebration of everything I love about Harry Potter and hate about another popular series.  Some might call it fan-fiction.

I call it Harry Potter and the Children of the Night and the fun begins tomorrow morning, right here on

More details after the jump…

Children of the Night will be published in four parts, with one part going up every day this week, Monday through Thursday, all leading up to my review of Deathly Hallows Part 2 on Friday morning. 

What is Children of the Night, you may ask?  Well, I don’t want to spoil too much, but it stars all of your favorite characters, including Harry, Ron, Hermione, Fred, George, Hagrid, Buckbeak, Neville, Luna, and even Pigwidgeon.  It’s set five years after Harry vanquishes the Dark Lord Voldemort, when Harry and Ron are working as Aurors.  Hermione brings them a new mission…and this is where things get exciting.

Because it’s also a crossover with Twilight. 

Now, I don’t want to sound too harsh, but Twilight is an unholy plague on our society, and I think it’s about time Harry and his friends solve this problem once and for all.  So if you’re a fan of Twilight, you may not enjoy this story, because let me tell you…the conflict is rather heated.  Blood will be shed.  Spells shall be fired.  Sparkles shall be shattered. 

It all starts tomorrow morning, Monday July 11th, exclusively on  Let’s send out Harry Potter in style!  Remember, if you have any thoughts, criticisms, or comments on the story, use the comment feature at the bottom of the page – you can use it even without an account; nothing could be easier.

I’m going to go put the finishing touches on this story.  I’ll see you all tomorrow for the start of the festivities.  Let’s have a great Harry Potter Week everybody!
