“Only one non-magical person has ever managed to get as far as the Hogwarts Sorting Hat before being exposed as a Squib.”

-Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Bloomsbury ed., 2014)

That Squib, bitter at the rejection of her magical kin, went on to pen a seven book expose that revealed the world of wizards to the non-magical folk they had historically feared.

This is a comic that explores Harry Potter without Harry Potter. The Boy Who Lived is a fictional creation of that Squib, but the world he discovered in his stories is real, and is panicking at the mass publication of their secrets.

This is an Alternate Universe fan comic based on the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling. We hold no claim over any part of the original series, and this work is strictly for the fun of further exploring the quirks of the world within those ever-popular books. If you ever wrestled with the idea of giving up internet access to learn how to turn teacups into mice, you’ll be right at home here.

This story will feature original characters only and will probably remain appropriate for young teen readers throughout, but will deal with complicated topics like totalitarian governments, terminal illness, and child abuse (just as the original series did). While we’ll poke fun at the books often, know that we do it out of love: this story was with us as we grew up, and remains an important part of our lives to this day, as it does with millions of others.
