Bio:
My name is Geoff, and I'm too old-fashioned to have a Facebook page, so what you see here is what you get.

I came late enough to Harry Potter that I never had to wait for the next book to come out. Still, Harry isn't Bertie Wooster: he has but one real story to tell, and the day came when it had been told in full. It turns out, though, that hijacking the characters and settings, trying to recapture the elusive feel that made the originals so successful, is a lot more challenging and fun than I expected it to be.

I'm a complete amateur at this: my real job doesn't involve literature, publishing, or popular entertainment of any kind.
If you make it to the end of any of my stories, please consider leaving a review.

Stories by CanisMajor

Summary: FeatureWhat really happened the last time someone let the Basilisk out? Harry Potter got a brief and rather self-serving version of the story from Tom Riddle's memory, and a few more details from Myrtle. But there was someone else who could have told him a great deal more, had he known to ask her.

Out Of Reach by CanisMajor
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 13]

Summary: His mum's a witch and his dad's a wizard, but Phoenix isn't going to Hogwarts.
His parents have other plans, and they know their rights much better than
Vernon Dursley ever did. It all makes perfect sense to them -- but not to
their unhappy eleven-year-old son. The magical education authorities might
have an opinion, too, if anyone were asking them. Or is it just that no-one
is listening?
