Nowhere to Run

A crossover between, in my opinion, the best books ever: Skulduggery Pleasant and Harry Potter.

When Valkyrie gets trapped in another dimention, unable to return to her home, she enrolls at Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry. As her hope of rescue fades, theres another, bigger threat: Lord Voldemort has caught wind of her, and wants to use her as a weapon that could help them win the war - and he will stop at nothing to get her.

Extra Info:

Its set in their 6th year, and Valkyrie is the same age as Harry, Ron and Hermione. I'm not sure whether it'll make sense or not to those of you that havent read Skulduggery Pleasant (it is a lot less common than Harry Potter) but either way.... enjoy!! Give it a chance, the first chapter isnt exactly the most exciting or best written of them all, but by chapter two & three you will be hooked. Please like and comment!


11. Hospital Wing

Valkyrie opened her eyes and stared at the white ceiling. She didn’t move, or say anything. She just lay there. It felt as though she were swimming in a pool of guilt. She’d been too weak – Darquesse had come out, again. And she’d hurt her friends. She couldn’t remember all the details, but she knew she’d caused pain.

A tear slowly rolled down her cheek, but she didn’t move to wipe it away. Skulduggery looked up, saw, and knew she was awake. “Valkyrie,” he said softly. She turned her head slightly, and stared into his empty eye sockets. “Are you okay?” Another tear. She shook her head. She didn’t trust her voice, but tried it anyway – she had to know: “Is he okay?”



Skulduggery looked over at the unconscious boy, the sheets soaked in his blood. “Valkyrie, it wasn’t your fault.”

“You didn’t answer the question.”

Skulduggery sighed, and glanced at Harry again. “Well…” He was cut off by the doors being flung open by a worried Dumbledore, followed by Snape. He crouched down by Harry’s bed, shooing Hermione away. He started mumbling, in a singsong voice, but Valkyrie didn’t raise her head to look. She was scared of seeing the damage she caused. Hermione walked warily over to Valkyrie, and took the other seat by her bed as she sat up. “Are you okay?” She asked, her voice unnaturally high pitched.


“But Valkyrie, you’re covered in blood…”

Her voice broke as she replied, “But it’s not mine.”

There was a silence for a while, only broken by Snape’s chanting and Ron’s hisses in pain as Madam Pomfrey tried to heal his wounds, which apparently were proving to not be like any ordinary cuts.

“Why didn’t you tell us?”

“About what?”

“About… Darquesse.”

“Why didn’t I tell you about me being a killer of worlds, with power equal to that of a god? Gee, I wonder.” Valkyrie said bitterly.

“Is Ron and Harry okay?” Valkyrie continued.

“Ron will be fine. Harry… he’ll be fine too,” Hermione said it as though she were trying to convince and reassure herself rather than Valkyrie.

Suddenly, she realized – Valkyrie’s head snapped round, looking at Skulduggery. “You!”

“Me?” He said questionably.

“You’re here! In a different dimension! You found me!”

“That I did.” The skeleton sounded pleased with himself. That is, he did, until Valkyrie continued.

“Let me finish,” she hissed. “You found me, after weeks.”

“…Your welcome?”


“Well, it was hard! First I had to work out where you were, then I had to find something to use as an isthmus anchor, then I had to kidnap your sister after you got back from holiday, then-”

“WHAT!? Kidnap WHO!?”


Oddly, Valkyries face split into a smile. “What the hell. I can’t stay mad at you.” She leaped over and embraced him, whispering in his ear, “thank you for saving me. I missed you.”

Skulduggery cried out suddenly, and Valkyrie sprang away from him. “What’s wrong!?”


“Don’t give me that, ‘nothing.’ Are you hurt?”


“Stop lying. You are. What hurt you?”

“Valkyrie, it’s just a scratch.”

“Why are you lying to me!?” She raised her voice, but suddenly it all came rushing back. She remembered as she looked down at her best friend, and held his life in her hands. She remembered how she’d hurt him. The realization showed in her eyes.

“Valkyrie, its fine. I’m fine.”

She opened her mouth to speak, but no words came out. Instead, she turned away. Valkyrie looked over at Harry’s bed, and all her worries came crashing back down on her. He’d lost so much blood, that his bed may have been red. His eyes were closed, and his face was ghostly pale. Valkyrie walked over slowly, ignoring Snape as he stood up and looked down at the boy. “He’s alive, but I can’t bring him round.”

“I think I can,” Valkyrie pulled a herb Kenspeckle had given her out of her pocket, that she’d never had to use till now. She crushed the leaves in her hand, and put them underneath Harry’s nose, and as he inhaled, the smell caused him to become conscious. His eyelids flickered, and he let a soft groan escape his lips.

“Harry?” She said quietly. His eyes opened and he cried out from the pain from his wound. “Here,” Valkyrie said, her voice shaking, “chew on this.” She gave him one of the painkiller leaves she always carried in her pocket. “I’m sorry. I’m so, so sorry Harry. And thank you, by the way. For saving me and everyone else from Darquesse.” She walked away as Snape continued healing him, no longer being able to bear the sight of his blood-drenched self.

Valkyrie turned to the door, and froze, as she saw Ghastly walk in, followed by a blond haired woman Valkyrie recognized only too well. Tanith bounced over to her, and went to hug her, but met Valkyrie’s fist, sending her crashing to the floor. “What are you doing here!? You followed us into a different dimention!?” Valkyrie shook, a mixture of fear and sadness and anger showing in her eyes. “Val… its me.” Tanith said softly. Valkyrie heard Skulduggery come up behind her. “Tanith had the remnant removed. She’s back.” He said softly. Valkyrie lowered her guard, and sobbed. Skulduggery turned to Ghastly, hands in his pockets. “Well, I definitely didn’t expect her to react like that.”

Valkyrie hugged her (metaphorical) sister. “It’s good to have you back,” she whispered.
