The Diggory Papers is an alternate universe novel by Machiavelli Jr in which Cedric Diggory survived the confrontation in Little Hangleton.

The story is ostensibly written by Diggory, edited by Miranda C. Weasley, and published by Lovegood & Boot in 2074. The box containing the original manuscript was marked "To be opened after the deaths of: Cedric Diggory, Harry Potter, Chang Cho Li, Fleur Delacour, Viktor Krum, Professor Albus Dumbledore, Professor Pomona Sprout, and you’d better be damn sure Lord Voldemort really IS dead." The instruction was supported by an extremely unusual lock which no key could or known charm could unlock; the fabric of the box itself, however, was not quite so well protected.


Cedric Diggory tells the story of his last year at Hogwarts, the Triwizard Tournament and an unlikely survival. Because Cedric Diggory did not die in Little Hangleton. Nor was he anyone's hero. Coward, lecher and cheat, but never hero.
