Secrets Ride is a 122-page Harry Potter/Magnificent 7 crossover zine by The Neon Gang.

Summary from the Publisher

A Magnificent Seven gen novel by The Neon Gang, set in the Horsefeathers Academy AU. This is a Little Britches AU as well -- in this case all of the boys are kids. It is also a Harry Potter AU, but one that is set in the United States, and being the US, we don't do things exactly like they do in England; we have our own ways and our own names/words for things, but the basic ideas from the HP books hold true here as well. The story takes place just as Harry heads off to Hogwarts for his first year. However, we are opting to use the copyright date for the US book release, so it's 1998, which lines up oh so nicely for the airing of the original Mag Seven series. So, yes, we are taking a few liberties with the original, but if you've read the HP books there will be lots of things that you'll recognize, and lots that will be new. NOTE! This story was posted in sections to an on-line list.

Excerpt

Vin and JD's last class of the day was Broom Handling for Beginners, which was held on the Western Hoops Field. They had the class with Buffalos Gild, just like for Magical Creatures. The children all left their backpacks at the edge of the field and ran out to where several portable broom stalls with their brooms were positioned in the middle of the field, each grabbing their own broom and then forming a long line across the length of the field.


Professor Chanu walked along the line until he reached JD and Vin, who were at the far end. "Hi, Vin," he greeted the boy. "Glad you could join us today." [1]
