‘Platform to Another World’ ~ Flash fiction

Were it not for the tell-tale modern phone wire across the skyline, the wizard thought he could still be in his past life.

He gazed at one of the tools of his trade, namely the magician’s time-piece on the windowsill.

What of that time-piece?

A good friend had gifted it to him; a fellow wizard. ย Oh, the wonderful journeys he had been on!

“So, where to next?” pondered Professor Severus Snape as he heard the familiar chug of the Hogwart’s Express in the distance…


A little bit about this piece of flash fiction:

Inspired partly by my current read ‘The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August’; the theme (so far) being time-travel.

Partly by the intriguing ‘time-piece’ that I saw on the windowsill in the photo.

Partly by one of my favourite characters in ‘Harry Potter’

And of course partly by my imagination…

I wanted to get the theme of Platform 9 3/4 into the title by a clever play on words… ๐Ÿ˜‰

I hope you enjoyed?

Please do feel free to comment but likewise, please do note that I would prefer not to

receive constructive criticism. ย 

(This time anywayโ€ฆ)

Thanks in advanceโ€ฆ

  1. Hooray, a happy ending (or beginning) for Snape! My son would be very happy to hear this. ๐Ÿ™‚ (by the way, Just noticed the badge on the bottom – if you were planning to link to #whatImWriting, it’s open now. xxx)

  2. (I shall whisper this very quietly) I’ve never read Harry Potter. But this was fun to read, even if it took me a few moments to get the reference. #whatimwriting

    • Ah yes, to be fair Kamsin, I totally wrote this assuming that the reader would ‘know’ Harry Potter. Thanks for reading though and glad you enjoyed it! p.s. I highly recommend the books over the films (mainly!) ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Hello again Maddy. I remembered to link in time ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have to admit that Harry has stalled because I got distracted, lost momentum and now an struggling. It was awesome but not for my flitful mind it seems… Sorry Claire North! But I doubt I’ll make much difference to her following, hey?! ๐Ÿ™‚
