I am a huge Harry Potter fan and find it quite depressing the series is over. However, I think that a couple good run off stories about other characters could be made if J.K Rowling or a good author decided to write them.The next four paragraphs I write will be foucused on different run offs that I think would be excellent stories.
1. The Mauraders- In the third book of the Harry Potter series we will first learn of the Mauraders who were James Potter, Sirus Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Petigrew. This would not be just a simple book it would be a series about their adventures at Hogwarts. Main points would be them going on adventures while their transfromed, their rivarly with Snape, their other relationships, and their creation of the Mauraders Map. Minor points would include classes, quittich, and their lives away from Hogwarts. This series of books would be much like the Harry Potter books and with the right author great books.
2. The Life of Albus Dumbledore- In the seventh book we learn more about Dumbledore's life but still very little. His life includes a dark childhood, teaching at Hogwarts, how Voldemort feared him, and how he was possible the greatest wizard of all time. His dark childhood involves what we learned in the seventh book about his relationship with Grindewald. Then there is evidence in the books that he taught at Hogwarts for 50 years including being headmaster for a long time. His experiences include dealing with the Mauraders, Tom Riddle, Harry Potter, and many other interesting things. As for his life as a wizard his numerous accomplishments are consistently mentioned in the book. This book would not be filled with action and might not be that exciting but a good author would make it a good read.
3.Servus Snape: Undercover Lover- I came up with that title because this story would be centered on him going undercover for Dumbledore because of his love for Lily. This would tell about his stuggles with his undercover duties, how he was able to convinve Voldemort he was on his side, and flashbacks to his childhood. This would be a very exciting book like books about spies are and wouldn't need a great author.
4.Fred and George- This would be a trilogy of 200-450 page novels focused on Fred and George after the Haryy Potter series assuming Fred hadn't died. It would talk about their running of the joke shop and expansion of buisness. Basically these books would be more like comedies than adventure books andmost authors could make it work.
