Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 The Happening That Happened Before the Happenings Began: Part I

"You know I'm old in some ways-in others-well, I'm just a little girl. I like sunshine and pretty things and cheerfulness-and I dread responsibility."
-F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise


“I didn’t forget,” I said dryly. “I didn’t tell her, because I knew that she would bring a negative aura.” I motioned around me as I tried to explain an aura, but I probably just looked like I was swimming or swatting flies or something equally awkward.

“You’re not a hippie, dear, normal people don’t have an “aura.” My mother sighed...

2 The Happening That Happened Before the Happenings Began Part II

"I hated being careful, too-or wanted to, at least."
- John Green, Looking For Alaska

People began casting glances in our direction as Ben ranted.

“I mean come on! Snowflakes in New Orleans! Who honestly doesn’t know that that means cocaine!”

Okay now everyone was staring at us.

3 The Happening that Happened on the Hogwarts Express + One Malfoy-Sized Secret

"...it was from an intense desire to be herself, and she felt that this man...was preoccupied with his own defiance."

-F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Offshore Pirate


“Um is this the part in those spy movies where you ask me if I know something that I think I don’t know, but then it turns out I kind of do and I get sucked into a dangerous web of lies and scandal?”

I looked at her with an expression that can only be described as the ‘Are-You-An-Idiot?’, “What in Godric’s golden boxers are you blithering on about?”

4 The Other Happening That Happened on the Hogwarts Express + The Woes of a Queen

"When one is in love, one always begins by deceiving one's self, and one always ends by deceiving others. This is what the world calls a romance."
-Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

“You’re just in denial because you don’t want anyone else touching your boyfriend,” I teased.
“You’re just mad because I’ve never gone for you,” Troy shot me a smirk that mirrored my own.
“Whatever helps you sleep at night Clearwater,” I threw my hair off my shoulder in fake nonchalance.

5 The Happening That Happened at the Sorting Ceremony + A Retrospective McCartney: Part I

"The gods have sent medicines for the venom of serpents, but there is no medicine for a bad woman. She is more noxious than the viper, or than fire itself." -Euripides


Dom was talking feverishly fast. “Do you people understand what this could mean?”

Ben, Vincent, and I exchanged glances. Abbott had her nose buried in a book, but looked up over the binding, mildly intrigued.

“Uh no,” Vincent mumbled.

“It means that the Triwizard Tournament is happening again!”

6 The Happening That Happened with the Sorting Ceremony + a Vengeful McCartney: Part II

"Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go."
-Oscar Wilde, The Duchess of Padua

“I’ve always wanted to come to Hogwarts since I’ve heard such wonderful things…”

Gag me with a spoon. Gouge out my eyes with rusty scissors. Let a Bludger smack me in the head. Just make it end for the sake of my sanity! I unceremoniously banged my head on the table and moaned pitifully.

“Alright, it’s official. I really am swan-diving off the Astronomy Tower.”

“Dude, Mick you didn’t tell me your sister was that hot!"

7 The Happening That Happened at Quidditch Practice + Some Scandalous Scandals Involving a Potter & a Malfoy

"Everybody's youth is a dream, a form of chemical madness."
-F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Diamond as Big as the Ritz


I pulled away. “Scorpius, your team.” I reminded him.

“They sent me to find the balls.”

“The balls are outside.”

“Shut-up and kiss me, you twit.”

I conceded only because I liked kissing Scorpius a lot.

8 The Happening That Happened with the ‘Back 2 Skool’ Party + A Queen Gets Kissed

"Anyone who ever gave you confidence, you owe them a lot."
-Truman Capote, Breakfast at Tiffany's


I grabbed my phone and flicked through it. I had some texts as always, but one from a number I didn’t know.

It read: Hey Maxima, it’s Troy. See you tonight. Wear something sexy for me. ;)

I smirked, but didn’t respond. Alright Clearwater, let’s tango.

9 The Other Happening That Happened at the ‘Back 2 Skool' Party + the Answer to a Melancholy Miserable McCartney

"Maybe ever'body in the whole damn world is scared of each other."
-John Steinbeck, Of Mice and Men


He grinned down at her and wrapped his arm around her shoulders.

Merlin, I’m going to vomit.

“Shots!” I called and raced to the bar to escape it.

10 The Happening That Happened When Gryffindor’s JV Played Ravenclaw’s JV + More Bones Are Snapped

"Just be patient. Let the game come to you. Don't rush. Be quick, but don't hurry."
-Earl Monroe


I didn’t listen at all to Teddy’s inspirational/motivational locker-room speech and didn’t listen when Coach Jarvis Appleby (the Flight Instructor/Quidditch Referee) did the whole captains thing. The only time I listened was when they blew the whistle to start the game...

"Louis Weasley’s got the Quaffle and he’s streaking toward the goals!”

11 The Happening That Happened in the Common Room + the Queen and Her Fool Go Shopping

"Money's a horrid thing to follow, but a charming thing to meet."
-Henry James, The Portrait of a Lady


I rolled my eyes at him and pushed past him, “If you want to date me then I expect a very expensive dinner and a very creative way of asking,” I called over my shoulder.

“You’re insufferable!” He yelled back.

12 The Happening that Happened with the Handle of Firewhisky + McCartney, Troy, and Some Secret Seeking

"There is nothing like puking with somebody to make you into old friends."
-Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

“Don’t you dare say it.” I guzzled down a gulp. “I told you, no.”

“But it sounded like one of those where you actually want me to talk you out of saying no and basically force you to do it, so then reach further enlightenment and happiness like that wonky Buddha dude you told me about.”

I gave him an exasperated look, but Troy was right unfortunately. I really wanted him to talk me into it.

13 The Happening that Happened Before Professor Longbottom Found Out About Isadora’s...Well Never Mind + the New Seeker Struggles

"Man is not what he thinks he is, he is what he hides."
-André Malraux

“Alright, who’s going to offer to play Seeker for me?” Wood asked. “Roxanne?” Fred looked like he didn’t like that idea any more than Roxanne did.
“Wood, you know I’m a Chaser, not a Seeker. I won’t last against Aleksander Krum, he’s a beast. A scary, Bulgarian beast. He’s like…”
“The Terminator of Seeking. The Goliath of Seeking. The Big Brother of Seeking. The Pennywise the clown of Seeking.”
“Thank you, McCartney, for those motivational allusions.”

14 The Happening That Happened When the Queen Was Vulnerable + A Don Meeting & The Trojan War

There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.
-Friedrich Nietzsche, "On Reading and Writing"


“Come in.” My voice cracked miserably and I hoped it wasn’t Troy who walked in.

I heard the door open and shut softly. “Max?” Albus’ gentle voice asked.

“Hi.” I looked over my shoulder at him. I was too exhausted to put on a façade this time.

15 The Happening That Happened When McCartney Played Seeker (In a Real Live Quidditch Match) + James Meets the Lucks

"Everything is funny, as long as it's happening to somebody else."
-Will Rogers


“Look Carty, just do your best and what will be, will be.” Zära motioned with her hands. “No one is going to hate you if we lose.”

“That’s a lie,” Darcy piped up. “I’ll hate you.”

16 The Happening That Happened After the Quidditch After Party + LP Takes a Trip to the Dungeons (Not Isadora’s Sex Dungeon)

“With a secret like that, at some point the secret itself becomes irrelevant. The fact that you kept it does not.”
― Sara Gruen, Water for Elephants


I blushed, but smiled back before looking away. We played that game all night. He’d look at me and we’d exchange smiles before looking away. Then I’d look at him and we’d exchange smiles before looking away again. It was like a game of tag that we were both losing.

17 The Happening That Happened When the Queen Got Drunk + A Food Fight That Ends in War

"It sounds plausible enough tonight, but wait until tomorrow. Wait for the common sense of the morning."
-H. G. Wells, The Time Machine


He paused before whispering, “Could you just pretend to love me? Just for this one time, pretend that I’m the one you really want?” His voice was so sad. It made me want to cry.

“Okay,” I told him. “I love you, Albus.”

18 The Happening that Happened at the Monster Bash with Two AC Woods + A First Year Gets Squished

"Why can't people have what they want? The things were all there to content everybody; yet everybody has the wrong thing."
-Ford Made Ford, The Good Soldier

I felt numb as I tapped James on the shoulder. He turned and looked up. “Hey buddy,” I began. “What are you doing?” I asked. Humor was always my default reaction to anything painful.

James’ eyes widened. “McCartney?” He looked back at the other girl. “But I thought you were—! What in Merlin’s name?” He ruffled his hair in nervousness and rubbed his eyes.

19 The Happening That Happened After Monster Bash + LP Destroys Important Metaphorical Things

"No man, for any considerable period, can wear one face to himself and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which may be the true."
-Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter

“What are you two doing?” Teddy stood in front of us with his hands on his hips. We remained silent, looking at the floor.
Scorpius and I immediately looked at the floor hoping he wouldn't see our faces under the make-up.

20 The Happening That Happened Before Albus Came for a Charger and Left with a Broken Nose + Maxima’s Cat Gets Out of the Bag

"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you."
― Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

“I’m going to take Al to the hospital wing.” James appeared behind me.

“I’ll help you.” James and I were silent as we walked, toting an unconscious Albus between us. I was at a loss. Whoever had made that video was going to pay.

21 The Happening that Happened When McCartney Made a Deal with the Devil + Rose Weasley Says Multiple Curse Words

“Giving someone the benefit of the doubt is not so simple as it sounds. What it means, in fact, is being charitable--which, as the vicar is fond of pointing out, is the most difficult of the graces to master. Faith and hope are a piece of cake but charity is a Pandora's box: the monster in the cistern which, when the lid is opened, comes swarming out to seize you by the throat.”
― Alan Bradley, Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew'd

I think I just made a deal with the Devil and sold my soul to ruin my sister’s life. Wow, I should win a Nobel Peace Prize...

22 The Happening that Happened When the Potter Parents Visit + Scorpius Drops a Truth Bomb

"There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm."
– Willa Cather from The Song of the Lark


He gave a small laugh. “You act like this place has become a warzone.”

I just shook my head and muttered to myself, “Oh, you have no idea.”

23 The Happening That Happened When Maxima Got Real + Albus Gets Realer

"Terror made me cruel." -Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights


“Wait! Albus,” I called and raced after him. I grabbed his hand and pulled him to a stop.

“What is it?” He asked and I wondered myself. What was it about Albus Potter that I couldn’t get him out of my head? Couldn’t bear for him to walk away from me?

“I just…” I drifted off and looked up at him. I threw my arms around him and kissed him.
