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!


3. The Idea

Skulduggery Pleasant was angry. Valkyrie was gone, in another dimension, and they had no way of getting her back. There was no Isthmus Anchor* to hold the gateway between the two worlds open, no way of finding her, or getting her back. She was gone.

But he wouldn’t give up. He would find a way to get her home, whatever the cost. Valkyrie meant everything to him – and she’d done the same for him.

Ghastly Bespoke’s scarred head peered into the room in which Skulduggery was slumped in a chair, head in his hands. After a moment, he spoke. “How are you?” He asked, in a gentle voice. “She’s not gone,” Skulduggery stated simply, his voice uncharacteristically hollow. “Skulduggery…   we’re doing everything in our power to bring her back, we have almost every scientist in the facility thinking of ways to track her, and breach the walls between our reality and the one she’s in, but she doesn’t exactly have spare skulls lying about like you did. There’s nothing that’s a part of her that is still here. I’m sorry.” The skeleton jumped up, crossed the room in less than a second and pressed Ghastly up against the wall. “SHE ISNT GONE!” He roared. After a moment, he stepped back, sitting down again. “Sorry…” he muttered. Ghastly sighed. “Its fine,” he said, then left.

Later that night, in the early hours of the morning, Skulduggery sat in his armchair, watching the flame dancing on his fingertips, thinking. There must be something, something that was linking their world and the one Valkyrie was trapped in… and then he had it. It was so simple, so obvious, he was furious with himself for not have thinking of it until now! He stood up, grabbing his coat and walking towards his Bentley, already on the phone to Ghastly. A tired sounding voice spoke through his phone, “hello? Skulduggery?”

“Get to the sanctuary. I know how we’re getting Valkyrie back.”


Skulduggery paced up and down the room, talking to Ghastly. “It’s so obvious! You said before there was nothing that was a part of Valkyrie still in this world – wrong. Her blood! Her blood is a part of her, and is also a part of her family, more specifically, in her sister. Her sister and she have the same blood! It should work! All we need to do is get Alice, then Fletcher, and we can open the portal to get her back!”

“Skulduggery, that…   that might actually work,” Ghastly said slowly, thinking. “But how are we going to get Alice?”

Skulduggery stopped in his tracks. “Erm…  kidnap her? We’d give her back!” Ghastly stared at his friend. “Skulduggery, are you serious? Its Valkyrie’s little sister, she’ll be furious when she gets back! And her parents… they’ll call the police and everything. Its mad, Skulduggery. You can’t do it.”

“Well, what else do you think we could do? Two strangers randomly wandering up to their front door and saying, ‘hi! Can we borrow your baby for a bit?’ Yeah, her parents would definitely co-operate with that! We can just sneak in, grab Alice, then get out! It would be worth it, Ghastly.” He sighed. “Fine. Do what you need to do. We’ll open the gateway tomorrow. Tomorrow, we’ll get Valkyrie back.”

*Isthmus Anchor: An Isthmus Anchor is an object used to open a portal to another dimension. It must be from one reality, but reside in another. For example, Skulduggery's skull was used to open a portal to the dimension he was in himself. To open up a portal, however, you would also need a teleporter.
