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!

13. Party Time!

Harry and Ron crept carefully, constantly on the alert for adults, up to the one eyed witch statue. “Are you sure they’re coming?” Harry asked, checking his watch. “Certain! They wouldn’t miss something like this!” Just as he said it, the statue slowly moved, and a boy with flaming red hair peeked round the witch’s stone dress, checking to see if the coast was clear. He spied Ron and Harry, and his face split into a grin. “All clear!’ He said to his identical twin, before they both climbed out of the secret passageway and pushed the witch back into place. “Guys! You came!” Harry said gratefully. “Course,’” they said in unison. “Come on, this way. Ginny’s got Valkyrie helping her find her ‘lost’ necklace while everyone sets up.” Harry told them, leading the boys through the corridors they knew so well. “Oh, and we won, by the way.” Ron added. “Valkyrie’s an outstandingly epic flyer.”

“Even better than Harry here?” Fred asked cheekily.

“Umm… well… How do I answer that without Harry getting mad at me!?”

“So she is better!” George chuckled.

“Yes. No. That’s not fair! Shut up.”

A few minutes later, they arrived. Gryffindor common room was chock-a-block full of busy people. Tables had been set up, heaving and sinking slightly in the middle from the amount of food on them. Someone had set up unpoppable bubbles, which were drifting around the room, bouncing off the walls. The music was set up, but wasn’t yet playing – all in good time. All that was missing was Valkyrie.

“Man, it’s good to be back,” George looked around the room, sighing with reminiscence.

“Everyone ready!!?” Harry shouted.

A roomful of yesses replied.

“Give Ginny the signal,” he told Ron, but to the crowd he yelled, “Everyone! Places!” Harry didn’t quite know how, but the entire Gryffindor house managed to hide themselves. Barely more than a minute later, the two girls entered the common room. Valkyrie stopped talking, and looked around, frowning. “Where is everyone??” she asked, a hint of worry in her voice. Harry peered out at her from underneath the tablecloth – her eyebrows were drawn in to a slight, curious frown.

“SURPRISE!!” Everyone jumped out, grins plastered onto their faces, and Valkyrie shrieked, laughing. “Ohmygod you almost gave me a heart attack, NEVER do that again!!” She said, still laughing.

“We know you’re leaving tomorrow,” Harry stepped forward and told her, “So we thought we’d throw a leaving party.”

“Oh no.” Skulduggery stepped into the Gryffindor common room. “Have you gone insane!? Valkyrie goes mental at parties. Last time she went, she ended up having her shoes on her hands and her tongue dyed green.”

“I’ll pre-order the ambulance,” Ghastly said, sighing.

“Lighten up, Skul!” Ron said to him.

Music started throbbing around the room, as everyone raided the food table. Fred and George started a lolly scramble, laughing as those who were ‘lucky’ enough to score a lolly had their faces turn from purple, to green, to blue, to orange. “Boys, that’s not funny.” Hermione fixed them with a steely glare. “Hermione! Have some fun for once!”

“Here, have some punch.” Fred passed her a glass and she eyed them suspiciously before walking off. They looked eachother and chuckled knowingly before heading over to Valkyrie.

“Val,” they whispered quietly, “don’t tell anyone, but we spiked the punch.” Her eyes widened as she choked on the fruity liquid shed just been drinking. “What?” She grinned. “This should be fun.”

“What should?” Tanith overheard as she walked towards them. “Don’t tell anyone.” Valkyrie said, lowering her voice. “These two spiked the punch,” she grinned mischievously.

Realization dawned on Taniths face. “Oh no.” She whispered.

“What?”

“So did I.”

The group burst into a fit of manic laughter. 

***

A few hours later, almost everyone was slightly drunk. Hermione was giggling in the corner, Lavender Brown was hiccupping bubbles, and Valkyrie was dancing with Harry in the center of the room. But she was sad. “I don’t want this to end,” she said quietly, a sad smile on her face. “I know. But nothing can last forever.”

“But I want it to.”

The song ended, and Harry jumped up onto the table. “Hey everyone! I just want to remind everyone of the reason we’re all here. Valkyrie. She arrived in style, and we’ve won every single quiddich game because of her. But that’s not all. She’s fun to be around, she’s funny, she’s daring and unique, and will go down in Hogwarts history for being damn awesome. I think I can speak for everyone when I say – this place will feel very dull without you, Val. We’re all going to miss you, and you’ve impacted my-our lives more than I can say. So, thanks. We know you can’t come back, just… don’t forget us, kay?”

Valkyrie had tears in her eyes as she jumped up and planted a kiss firmly on his mouth, in full view. Because she really didn’t care what people thought any more.
