The Hogwarts Secret Saturday Morning Marxist Reading & Action Adventure Club - Sa13+
by the ever deplorable, always incorrigible, late as a date past its season ...
Ottery St. Catchpole

*Please withhold applause*

Disclaimer: All of the HP characters belong to J.K. Rowling, all the characters I create belong to me, as does the story but not the concepts created by J.K. Rowling who pwns, no infringement is implied. It's her world, I just live in it

Political Disclaimer: No political ideologies were killed in the making of this post ... much less mentioned, or discussed even. Go somewhere else for that, this is a fic.


It was Saturday morning, which meant the club was having it's meeting. Missing a meeting of the club was not an option much less anything any member would seriously consider doing. You'd have to be nuts not to go. It also didn't hurt if you actually read that month's selection. For a book club, The Hogwarts Secret Saturday Morning Marxist Reading & Action Adventure Club got a lot of action adventure in between their chapters of Pride and Prejudice or Gone with the Wind.

Neville woke up reluctantly. He stretched and yawned and slammed his hand down hard a split second before the tiny hammer started slamming into the side of the bells on either side of the alarm. Harry, and Ron hated that silver demon as they called it because they liked to sleep in late on the weekends. Seamus and Dean were always up before eight because they jogged around the grounds, played quidditch, and pretty much trained themselves to be ready for any contingency that might arise that would require them to save the wizarding world, again.

They'd been doing it since their first year when Professor Mandelbrot had first recruited them. He was the secret professor at Hogwarts, the real Defense Against the Dark Arts master, and Professor Snape's true rival for that coveted position the not secret Defense Against the Dark Arts post. Professor Dumbledore really could be a meany about dangling carrots before as erm donkeys.

Neville yawned again and stretched his arms. Ron's legs lay where his pillows were. At least he hadn't fallen out of his bed again. Harry lay face down and bum in the air like an ostrich, probably because the world was a mad ridiculous place that every week seemed to want to kill him. Neville didn't envy him that. He looked at the clock. Time for a quick shower, a skim through the new book they were reading, getting dressed and getting out of the dormitory and to the secret tower, which really wasn't so secret it stood in plain sight but what lay in it, no one but the members of the Saturday Morning Book Club knew.

"C'mon Trevor," Neville said to his toad. Trevor loved taking baths. "Time for a soak and then we're off to see if the world needs saving again."

Trevor thought to himself. "That Potter bloke sure has it easy, having to fight one arch-nemesis over and over again. Neville and the reading club have to save the wizarding world almost every other week from certain peril. Once a term really did seem like an unfair walk in the park. And they get to sleep in on the weekends." He croaked at them as Neville walked past.

Ron muttered, "Danish please, and sausage ... I love you Hermione," in his sleep as they walked past. Really, did that boy only dream of food?




What's that? You've never heard of The Hogwarts Secret Saturday Morning Marxist Reading & Action Adventure Club. I would suggest you carefully reread your HP 1-7 and then come back here ... because I made it all up. This is AU. Third year, with a focus on the not-trio characters. And a few of my old creations and ... maybe Godzilla and apes if you're nice. Hope you come back. Tell all your friends. The action starts here.

First time reading your pic, and the name sort of drew me into reading the fic. It is kinda weird having "Marxist" as part of the title and the usage sure is weird. A secret book club. Amusing.

Enjoyed reading your fanfic, and I look forward to reading more of your work, Ottery.

Cool The Action Adventure continues ...
Paris & Kellybear r luv :Read Otty 's fics:Gone With the Wind:I♥Rupert

REPLIES: Howdy y'all Hope you all have had a good Saturday Morning

SenoritaMaxie: 1st Reader. Hey Maxie, you read too much, I mean I see your name in so many people's fics and then you write your own and you Nano and you go to school how do you find the time? But please don't leave my fic *grabsyouandtiesyoudown*

LilyLunaGinnyPotter: Hey LilyLuna thank you for reading

harita: Thank you harita, I'll try to post often, but at the very least, on Saturday Mornings or afternoons

DracoMalfoygirl12: My works all over the place on SS if you want to read something I might have finished. My best piece is Love's Whimsical Melancholy but this story is going to be a lot lighter, and more filled with action. I'm leaving the romance strictly in the romance section ... okay maybe one kiss or two for Neville & Trevor but mostly action.


SeerCassandraTrelawney: Thank you. I saw how you had the whole section all nice and welcoming and spiffy and I just knew my next fic had to be here. Thank you for letting me feel so welcome.

Spork!: Hopefully, you'll find more humorous things *ahem* amidst all the action, of course.


princess of*hp*: All my fics are crazy princess, feel free to find them and see just how crazy I can get my craziest has to be Mars Attacks! I love writing ...




"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife." Professor Mandelbrot quoted Jane Austen, "Is that so, Mr. Longbottom?!" he exclaimed as he sent off a stunning curse.

Neville ducked, threw himself on the floor rolled and stood up firing off a Jelly legs jinx, "I have to disagree wholeheartedly, sir."

Next to him Seamus kept firing curses at Dean who deflected them but not swiftly enough as he attempted to put Seamus on the defensive. Ernie MacMillan hung upside down while Hannah Abbot smiled wand in hand. She had caught him in a snare trap.

Professor Mandelbrot smiled at Hannah, "Well done, Ms. Abbot but how do you respond to this?" He fired a rope binding spell which Hannah jumped out of the way off, which of course hit Ernie and bound him in another bunch of ropes. "Don't drop the thread of the argument Ms. Abbot? Do we agree with Mr. Longbottom or nay?"

Curses flew, as well as quotes about Pride and Prejudice, it would have to be Gone with the Wind next week. The Hogwarts Secret Saturday Morning Marxist Reading & Action Adventure Club was a weird little set. Every weekend, and sometimes for special sessions during the week, they would gather under Professor Mandelbrots tutelage and they would discuss that month's book selection while they practiced their Defense Against the Dark Arts skills. Under the leadership of Professor Dumbledore they were at a moment's notice available to save the world as needed.

"I think Professor, that ..." Hannah fired off a stunning spell. "I think that it is true."

"Defend your position," he replied.

"I am!" Hannah objected.

"I meant the argument," the professor said smiling.

"Impedimenta!" Hannah shouted, then ducking behind a barrel she thought for a second. Something smashed in the distance. "Well, it would stand to reason, sir, that a man in possession of a large fortune would want to ... well he'd want to, grow his assets and ... well, the way to go about that is to invest wisely. Money alone is not the only asset a man has, and to be financially profitable is fine, but what profits the soul, or the heart of a man if he has a lot of money and no one to ... to share it and enjoy it with?"

Hannah looked up and found Professor Mandelbrot with his hands up. Neville having got the drop on him. Hannah smiled at Neville and he blushed. The Professor began to applaud. "Very well done the both of you."

Luna walked over to Ernie and with a wave of her wand, had released him. Rolf Scarmander standing underneath, caught Ernie as he fell. The boy with the tousled grey hair smiled at Luna who looked past him. Rolf was perpetually smiling at her and she didn't know if the boy was daft or if he had a problem with his lips that they just wouldn't stop grinning.

As the students gathered around the Professor Neville could be heard muttering, "I don't think so. Sounds just like Gran, always trying to get me married off or somethin' ... what if I don't like the girl? What if I don't wanna get married?"

"Yes, well Mr. Longbottom," Professor Mandelbrot said, dressed in robes of darkest black, a complete and utter opposite of the light brown of his hair and the hazel of his eyes. The Professor was a short muscular man with a short brown mustache and a glint of happiness in his eyes, a twinkle of mischief not unlike Dumbledore's, a grin from which sarcasm and a quick wit hung ever ready to be dispensed. "I'll make sure not to let you fall in love while you're in this reading group. i wouldn't want you off and married against your wishes, now would I?"

"Tea time?" Ernie asked hopefully as he took off the ropes that bound him, he'd been tied up about ten times so he had a lot of rope to untangle himself from.

"Tea and cakes and biscuits and strawberry tarts and the like," the Professor said, as the students all hungry after the early morning work out ran for the table by the entrance.

Just then however, in the center of the room Professor Dumbledore and Dobby apparated in the center of the room.

"I thought you couldn't apparate inside of Hogwarts," Ginny said as she got a strawberry tart. Hannah, Rolf, and Luna all turned to look at her.

"Hermione's always going on about it," Neville explained. "It says so in Hogwarts a History."

"I hate to interrupt your tea, but it seems the wizarding world is in peril again my students. I must call upon you for another assignment," Professor Dumbledore said.

"Dobby apparated the Headmaster. It is true you can't apparate inside of Hogwarts. Elf magic is different though," the little elf explained. He snapped his fingers and just like that the cup of tea that Neville had tipped over Hannah Abbot disappeared before it could soil her robes.

"What's the problem Headmaster?" Professor Mandelbrot asked wand at the ready to face any danger. Behind him his students listened ready for anything, because it was usually something they had not faced before. From a corner of the room a white cat sat and yawned for all the world bored with the proceedings. Trevor gave him a wary look and hopped away.




NEXT: My Littlelest Pet Shop or Danger a g0-g0! That'll make more sense when I actually write it ... I hope

cuz that was weird. the reading club thing just kind of came to me. cuz I belong to a reading club at the library here


SeerCassandraTrelawney: I'm glad you're reading Cassandra, I like having readers Sadly, I've missed a couple of Saturday's but I hope to remedy that.

Connie: Conners, you're always here ... *glomps* *sniffles* now on to the action adventure.



The saxophone played down the wet brightly lit street wafting down with the scents on the wind of the barbecue place, the usual urban smells of car exhaust mixing with the trees in the parks and the smells from the factories and coffee shops and restaurants. Still, the song played, a girl sang with all her heart pouring out of every syllable every note heartfelt painting a picture of heartache and longing.

Not one caress and I am wanting to be filled with pleasure
not one caress and me dreaming with what could be
not one caress and me looking for your taste on my lips
not one caress and me waiting and me wanting you to make love :music
:
~translated from the song by Ana Gabriel


The sad song floated through the streets of London. Solemnity Fields walked out of the pub. She had a date with a werewolf. Vengeance was a dish best served cold with copious amounts of excessively unnecessary violence and mayhem. And Fields so wanted vengeance against Neville Longbottom.

The boy she was supposed to be meeting came highly recommended among dark circles. The boy was a werewolf, an assassin, a hired hand. Exactly how best to use that tool she did not know yet, but there would be time enough for that in the future. For now, she wanted to see what this boy was capable of and whether he would work out, then if he did she'd worry about whether or not his style of combat was compatible with the Hunter.

She turned one last time to look at the pub and smiled at the girl's song. She sang so beautifully, someone who'd obviously felt that heartache. Solemnity Fields knew about heartache but she didn't want to sing her pain as much as she wanted to share it, in the most physical, painful manifestation of her own emotional hurts. A broken heart hurt more than a few broken bones, and it would not heal as quickly.



Not much, but something for y'all to chew on until I return ... and I shall return. Sooner, I hope. LOL Holidays and all, my apologies, and loves ♥.

Hi Ottery! I have to say that I love this story idea, the whole book club study is very clever. And I love the name you have for the professor. "Mandlebrot" Did you think of that name, or you heard it before and gave it to your character? It rings of authority, power, wisdom, courage, and mischievousness.

What did Neville do to her? Or maybe he doesn't share her thoughts on things of the heart.

What ever it is he seriously needs to watch out for her.

Question While the cats away the wolf will play?
Paris & Kellybear r luv :Read Otty 's fics:Gone With the Wind:I♥Rupert

I begin with a joke then we continue our story, shall we?

Two little boys, ages 8 and 10, were excessively mischievous. They were always getting into trouble and their parents knew all about it. If any mischief occurred in their town, the two boys were probably involved. The boys' mother heard that a preacher in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys. The preacher agreed, but he asked to see them individually. So the mother sent the 8 year old first, in the morning, with the older boy to see the preacher in the afternoon. The preacher, a huge man with a booming voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly, "Do you know where God is, son ?"

The boy's mouth dropped open, but he made no response, sitting there wide-eyed with his mouth hanging open. So the preacher repeated the question in an even sterner tone, "Where is God?"

Again, the boy made no attempt to answer. The preacher raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy's face and bellowed, "Where is God?!"

The boy screamed and bolted from the room, ran directly home and dove into his closet, slamming the door behind him. When his older brother found him in the closet, he asked, "What happened?"

The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, "We are in BIG trouble this time, GOD is missing, and they think we did it!"




Connie: Conners, you're always reading which is so cool. Mandelbrot is a word I knew, I just had no clue what it meant. I looked it up, it has to do with math and my interest waned from there ... I'm an English major so sue me you can wiki it though, but don't ask me to explain it.

Solemnity Fields has a sister named Strawberry and she may or may not appear in this story. I just HATE sitting at the story trying to figure out a name for a character so I usually pick something that sounds really cool, hence Mandelbrot and Solemnity.


SeerCassandraTrelawney: Thank you Cassandra, and will do. I'm getting back on the writing horse and as always, my HP Fanfiction is leading the charge

harita: I was hoping it was something more artistic and just tween us harita that cat wasn't just sitting there ... *ahem* he's a character too *ahem*

But now, onto the story.



A cold winter's chill gripped the world that night, in an embrace that promised only to grow colder. Love is a fleeting thing, he thought to himself as he shoved his hands deeper into the pockets of his long black fuzzy coat. It was funny how he liked to wear fuzzy jumpers and shirts. If he 'wolfed out' as Tommy liked calling it, then he'd be covered in a long grey fur coat of his own, natural and a lot warmer too. Of course, the blood pumped more furiously, his heart beat a million times faster, and through his eyes he could mostly see red, that and he snuffled, drooled, loped, breathed heavily and howled at the moon. Mainly if he was angry but he mostly turned into a werewolf when he was angry. Being an assassin meant killing people, not 'wolfing out' and then killing people. Still, some people made a simple job difficult and well, it was not like anyone ever hired him to kill nice people anyways, right?

He stood under the lamplight and waited. His contact would be a girl, he hoped she'd be pretty but from what Booster had told him she was a tall, red haired girl with large gorgeous lips she painted a floozy red, and a mean kick. How Booster knew that, well, Alek knew better than to ask, Booster was not a ladies man.

He sighed, his hot breath turning into soft mist to join the foggy London night haze. Alek sighed again and started to walk off. He had waited for an hour already, and he wasn't getting paid for it.

"Are you Wolf Hunter?" a voice called out in the empty street.

The dark haired boy turned around. He could see no one anywhere within listening distance. But he knew better than to merely trust his sight. She stood by the lamppost he had just walked away from, under an invisibility cloak. He could smell the faint traces of butterbeer under the Chanel.

He growled.

"Are you or aren't you? I haven't got a lot of time to be wasting," she complained. He could smell the elder of her wand drawn and ready to fire at his heart. Alek wondered what kind of spell a made up, princess, snob would use on a boy from the wrong side of the ... oh blast the tracks, the wrong side of the wizarding world.

"You called me honeybunny, you're the one wasting my time. Come find me when you want to talk seriously and you're willing to stop laying these stupid little amateur's games."

Alek started to walk away, and stopped as a spell blast scorched the sidewalk a step ahead of him. The sound of a robe falling made him turn. He caught his breath.

"I know you," he said in a whisper that carried softly on the wind.


:O


AN: Not much again, but something ...

Default I'm glad you all liked the joke ... I wish I'd have written it ... LOL
Paris & Kellybear r luv :Read Otty 's fics:Gone With the Wind:I♥Rupert

While everyone went about their nightly business in the Gryffindor Common Room--whether that business be working on another of Professor Snape's overlong parchments on potions and their myriad uses, misuses, proper handling, making and smelling etc. ad nauseum; or playing a game of chess as Ron and Harry were doing in a corner quietly away from everyone, Hermione next to them, her nose buried in a book looking up every now and again to watch Ron in a funny way, but never so long that he caught her looking and never when she thought someone watched them--in another corner Neville, Trevor who sat on his shoulder, Ginny who was throwing a quaffle at Dean as he stood by them hung around gloomily silent buried deep in thoughts about what Professor Dumbledore had told them earlier that Saturday.

"This is just as serious a threat as Lord Voldemort. While perhaps not as ... headline grabbing as Harry's exploits, this does not diminish the danger of this group of individuals," the Headmaster's voice caught everyone's rapt attention.

Outside of the tower walls, Neville could see through the windows the sky becoming overcast and as the dark clouds crept through the early afternoon sky they swallowed the sun like a fanged beast out of Norse mythology, a ravenous wolf child of the gods eating the star and all its brightness.

"I've never heard of them, Headmaster," Professor Mandelbrot admitted. "I've been around the dark arts as an auror in my time but I can't say that they've ever registered on the Ministry's radar."

"Not surprisingly, Gregorius, they work clandestinely. It seems they're like an octopus with their tentacles in everything but the main body safely hidden away from the light." The Headmaster sighed, and Hannah shivered as if a cold wet finger had been run up her spine. Rolf looked at Luna but her expression seemed a thousand miles away. "They were called the hounds of hell in my day," the professor remarked. "They are an old alliance that has hidden itself for these many long years. They've gone by different aliases except their true one, the hellfire club, the armaggedon brigade, the guardians of night, the dark guard ... the list goes on. But only one name truly matters, the name they've kept hidden throughout the ages."

Everyone stood around expectantly for the professor to say, but he simply smiled and stared back at them politely, the twinkle in his eye as merry as the room was gloomy.

Finally, Ginny Weasley, grown tired of simply staring asked what everyone was thinking, "And what's their true name Professor Dumbledore? How are we supposed to know them?"

"Hmm. Oh, beats the devil out of me, Ms. Weasley, that's why I'm sending you all to find out." He replied smiling. Neville, Seamus and Dean all about wanted to fall down in shock at the unexpected reply.

Ernie asked, "How are we to do that Professor?"

"Obviously you'll have to go undercover, or go fact finding and clue searching all around the globe, the usual methods ... obviously you'll need the use of one of the apparition rings, which the professor will hand out once he's divided his squads. While they work, it's only outside of Hogwarts so please remember you need Dobby or another of the house elves to apparate you outside the castle grounds. I'll leave the details to Professor Mandelbrot."

Professor Dumbledore had handed their Defense Against the Dark Arts Professor a file containing within it information about The Hellfire Club as the group was dubbing itself now. What little was known was that they were a shadowy group that worked behind the scenes, and that with the rumors of the return of the Dark Lord they had been sending out agents to see if the former Death Eaters were interested in possibly allying themselves with them.

Nothing had been decided at the meeting, everything was on hold until Calliope and Storm's return to the castle.

"I wish Calliope was here already," Dean said dropping the quaffle.

Ginny shot him a look of shock.

"I dunno, things just seem so much easier when she's around," the boy replied to the unasked question.

Seamus came running down the steps from the boy's dormitory and at a glance picked them all up. It was late, but they could tell from the grandfather clock that they still had time to wander the castle before their curfew. He said nothing but touched Dean on the shoulder and walking past him led the way out of the common room along with the others.

"Take that Harry," Ron said triumphantly. "Check and mate."

"Oh, eat my rook, why don't you," Harry replied a bit put out. The thought of a madman out to kill him was really disconcerting and the odd behavior of Professor Lupin was trying too. It wasn't easy to concentrate, not that he would have won against Ron but at least he would not have lost so spectacularly.

"If I had been playing I would have used the Fisher gambit, you know," Harry's white bishop admonished him.

"Oh shut it," Harry said to the little Bishop knocking his hat off.

Hermione smiled at Ron, who smiled back at her before running off after Crookshanks again who was making his way to the dormitory stairs and likely up to Scabbers.

"Oh no you don't."

Ginny stopped watching them. She didn't belong to Harry's little group, she had her own but she would have liked very much to be there. To be able to talk to Harry to find out what bothered him what niggled at his miind. She walked outside of the portrait saddened that she could not rescue her white knight the way he had saved her.

"You all right, Ginny?" Neville asked her.

"I'm fine, Nevs," she said quietly, giving him the private nickname she had for him. They trailed behind the others as they walked out to the gardens where they could talk more freely and not be overheard.




AN: Hope you all liked that, I'm trying to throw in a little bit of mystery, yes the cat is important, no I haven't forgotten him, yes he was in the room the whole time Dumbledore was speaking ... perhaps I should write him into this ... in a minute if I don't forget. And most importantly, yes, what happened before in London is happening simultaneously with the events at Hogwarts or later that night actually ... and more importantly even than that NO! I have not forgotten my readers or their replies. Without you girls I wouldn't really feel as inspired to write, which I am, check out my Lj I write there too though not near as much because I don't have readers yes that's a pathetic attempt at an invitation. Please go, if you like to read original fiction.

Moving on ... to Replies!


Connie: You're always here or at any of my fics really Connie. Thank you. I'm glad you liked the joke, my aunt sent it to me ... she usually just sends but ... every now and then is a gem. As for why that girl thinks she's got a grudge against Neville ... uhm, did I say she had it out against Neville? There's probably a really flimsy, this is why I'm a villain reason so ... stay tuned to find out.

SeerCassandraTrelawney: That's usually what I call my Kellybear or my Bellapoo it slipped out I guess But he does know her ... question is does she know him?

harita: It's a white cat so you know it's not Professor McGonagall. I should use her sometime I should ... as for the cat being Harry ... did I say the cat was a metamorphmagus? No? Good cuz I still haven't, I mean he could as easily be an animagus or if I'm really inspired ... *cough* by Connie of course, it could be a werecat or maybe it's just Prince from my other fic. Not saying just yet ...

Obi-Wan K'Lari: Lari you're here You always read my stuffs I'm glad you liked my post and the joke. All I can say is, stay tuned for more action adventure and mystery. You know you love cliffies as much as I do.

Notes: What you should all be wondering while I think up the next post:

Why is that girl looking for vengeance after Neville?
Who is the cat?
Is God missing?


What you shouldn't be asking yourself or me for any reason at all:

Who is Calliope and Storm?
Why are they really meeting in the garden?
Where's Professor Lupin in all this?
And where's the steampunk?

Okay, fine. I won't ask who they are. But I will ask how to pronounce Calliope?

I can picture this in my mind as if it were in a HP move. Love it.

A scary bit of information.
