Author’s notes: I put a lot of literature references in this fiction. While it is not required to understand the plot, I love all these books so I think you should read them anyway!
The works involved are:
Hunchback of Notre-Dame by Victor Hugo 3/4th of the text Wiki page with summary
Billy-Budd by Herman Melville full text Wiki page with summary
Myth of Sisyphus by Albert Camus full text
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley full text Wiki page with summary
Tragical History of Doctor Faustus and Goethe's Faust You can read all about Faust's legend here.
Disclaimer: I do not own Harry Potter and I never will. I wrote this purely to practice my English skills and I will never make a cent off of it. Warner Brothers and JK Rowling own all rights to Harry Potter. The title comes from Camus's work on Sisyphus.
All characters depicted in sexual situations in this story are of legal age to engage in such acts.
This work is intended for adults only and if you are under aged in your location or forbidden from reading, please do not read.
Notes: I could not have done this without the help of many amazing people. I have had way too many helpers to name all of them, but an especially big thanks to tasha18, Rai, isilel, Jessica, Jon, Angia, and Georgia who really picked apart this story and pointed out where it needed extra help. And thank you very, very much to all the readers and reviewers who helped teach me how to write.
P.S. If you are like me and sometimes like to read the sex scenes first to see if the story is worth reading, I put the word "cock" in every sexual scene of decent length. Just Ctrl+F to find them.
