Not Harry Potter

A fanfiction in screenplay format. The Halliday family are a magical family living on Dartmoor. A mum, a dad, three children - a perfect magical tableau of domesticity. But the past cannot stay buried forever. What does a crime committed in Rome in 2001 have to do with the Halliday's? And do the scars from the Battle of Hogwarts ever really fade?

2. Scene 1

 

EXT - ENGLISH COUNTRYSIDE, AFTERNOON


Wide on - HOGWARTS EXPRESS chugging along through the countryside. It is sunny. Music overlays.


UNKOWN MALE (V.O)

Goodbye Hogwarts...one year down, six more to go.

(satisified sigh)

Oooh. I just love chocolate frogs. Look, I got my dad. Again.


UNKOWN MALE 2 (V.O)

Come on, James. This isn't your story, you know.
 

JAMES (V.O)

I'm only having a bit of fun. You should try it sometime, Teddy.
 

TEDDY (V.O)

(deep inhale)

Leave it, Potter. Let the Halliday's tell their own story in peace.

Please. For the sanity of everyone.
 

JAMES (V.O)

Urgh. All right. Drumroll please!


A faint drumroll noise sounds, like someone using their thighs as a drum.


FADE TO BLACK


BLACK SCREEN
SUPERIMPOSE - NOT HARRY POTTER
A pale hand appears, holding a wand.


UNKOWN FEMALE (V.O)

(whisper)

Carpe Retractum.


A rope appears from the end of the wand, creating a lasso which wraps around the title. The letters are squeezed together slightly. The hand jerks backwards, off screen, and the rope and title follow.
