Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 Chudleigh

It is the end of the summer holidays for Greg Bennett, an 11-year-old boy in the quiet Devon village of Chudleigh. By the end of the day, however, his life will never be the same again.

3,092 14
2 Cannons

The magical world has become a reality for Greg Bennett, but as fourth-year Matthew Sawyer introduces his neighbour to the details of Hogwarts life, he discovers that some stories are not so easy to tell.

2,378 12
3 House Points

Magic is a reality for Greg and Matthew, but as the older boy begins to explain the history of the school, and the two children prepare for their journey on the Hogwarts Express, Matt finds himself sharing more than he had planned. Slytherin House is more than just a dormitory.

2,492 12
4 Day One

Greg sets foot on the Hogwarts Express, and into the Castle, for the first time - but what will the Sorting Hat have in store for him - and how will Matthew deal with the sorting of his neighbour?

A/N: Enough of you have read this... one review wouldn't go amiss...

4,761 9
5 History of Magic

Lessons start at Hogwarts for Greg and the other first-year Slytherins, as Professor Binns begins the term by finding a way to make the Battle of Hogwarts sound boring. Old wars, however, are far from the new pupils' thoughts after the lesson.

2,892 7
6 Flying Lessons

Isaac, Theo and Greg find themselves meeting the Quidditch coach as the muggle-born boys get onto their brooms for the first time.

3,022 5
7 Team News

It's the first Quidditch Practice of the season for the Slytherin boys: an opportunity to learn more about the game, and the positions... or to learn more about one another than they had expected.

3,447 5
8 Slughorn

The Quidditch team starts to take shape; meanwhile, the first-year Slytherins meet their Head of House in their first Potions lesson.

4,749 4
9 Detention

Isaac, Greg and Glyn pay the penalty for their hasty words the previous day: words, after all, can be dangerous weapons.

4,228 4
10 Tregeagle

With the first-years having met all of their new professors, they began to settle in to the routine of the new school year. As any teacher will tell you, however, lessons rarely go to plan.

5,454 4
11 October

The Christmas term ticks onwards as the castle begins to build up to the first games of the Quidditch season, as Slytherin take on Gryffindor.

4,251 5
12 Slytherin vs Gryffindor

It's the first game of the Quidditch season. Are Greg and the Slytherin team ready for the defending champions?

3,723 5
13 Blood and Water

The aftermath of the first Quidditch match of the season leads the Slytherin boys to learn more about themselves - and the wizarding world - than they really wanted to find out.

3,950 6
14 Names

Our history is full of the same lesson: a name can be the most powerful weapon of all.

2,674 5
15 The Huntsmen

The boys begin their Christmas holidays, and find that their research into their History of Magic project begins to lead them in an unexpected direction.

2,448 4
16 Ravenclaw

The Easter term starts at Hogwarts, and for the Slytherin boys there's more than one reason that Ravenclaw's on their mind.

4,787 3
17 Lessons Learnt

Classes continue as the Easter term moves onwards, but there is more to be learned than just what's on the lesson plans.
A/N: I've decided to change the title. Any thoughts on whether this is a good/bad/awful/indifferent idea are welcome, as are any other reviews from the 1,000+ reads there have been!

2,721 3
18 Family

Sometimes things are a little too close to home.

3,739 3
19 Veritaserum

Sometimes the truth needs to be told.

2,992 3
20 Total Quidditch

Two important matches take place, both in the British and Irish League and at Hogwarts, whilst the boys meet a former pupil who can sympathise with the Slytherins' struggles.

3,353 5
21 Broken Glass

As the dust settles on the end of the regular Quidditch season, thoughts in the Castle turn to the upcoming exam week. For the Slytherins, however, an old piece of homework starts to come in more useful than they could ever have imagined.

2,992 3
22 The Hunted

The History of Magic can be deathly dull sometimes. At others, however, everything can all seem rather too close to home.

A/N - All the legends of Tregeagle are "true" - or, at least, verified English/Cornish folk tales. The man definitively existed.

3,353 3
23 Loyalties

As Hogwarts looks ahead to the final weeks of term, the first-years find themselves being drawn deeper and deeper into the story of the Wild Hunt and the Tregeagles.

A/N: Strong language particularly present in this chapter. As Matt would have it, "sometimes there's nothing else you can say."

4,880 4
24 Elements

The first-years may have achieved a truce, but there is still much more to be done as Tregeagle's countdown ticks onwards

4,139 3
25 Sunset

It's a waiting game at Hogwarts - but no one knows quite how long they will be waiting, or indeed what they're ultimately waiting for...

3,659 3
26 Answers

The Hunt may have been defeated, but - for both teachers and students - there are still a great many questions left to be asked.

3,042 5
27 End of Term

The overhanging threat of the Wild Hunt has passed for now, but, as the year draws to a close, there are still the small questions of the end-of-year exams, and the Quidditch Cup playoff.
