I really wanted to put my story banner up here, it's really amazing, but I couldn't figure out how, so until I do, I just have to wait to put it here I suppose.. it's in my siggy on the forums though.
I've decided to put my chaptered fic, Forbidden Forest? Who Said Forbidden? on hold, seeing that it's been extremely long since the last update and the chapters are few and far between. Real life is taking practically all my time now, so I doubt I would've finished the seventh chapter anyway, even though I've written like half of it. I'm extremely sad that I'm putting this on hold, since it was my first fic and I actually liked writing the plot and the characters. I may continue writing it someday, which is why I'm only putting it on hold, but if I haven't written anything on it in six months, I probably won't continue writing it. I will, however, still write one-shots.
I'm currently writing a one-shot L/J, in which a very peculiar race takes place, Sirius decides to combine the best with the best, and Lily decides there may be a better way than yelling at James to show him that he's not the almighty god he thinks he is. The speed is going to pick up in this story, so stay tuned!!
so for now, that's all I have to say..
this is Rikku, signing off!

*Quote from The Epilogue*
Suddenly Harry was kissing her as if he couldn’t resist the temptation. There was a kind of frenzy to the kiss at first, a kind of desperate need, but it melted into something soft and sweet and gentle, a promise of a future when kisses would never be limited. When they broke apart he rested his forehead on hers, sprinkling a few affectionate butterfly kisses across her face. “I love you,” he murmured.
‘Thou shalt not sin’ – Bible
Sirius knows what he wants and he’s not afraid to chase it. She makes him feel more than he’s ever felt before, but getting what he wants may cause him more heartache than he ever imagined. Thus begins a thrilling game, a game of vice and virtue, of betrayal and affection, of sin and atonement.
The forbidden fruit tastes the sweetest.

“I’ll always protect you.”
Summary: I'm not really sure how or when it happened. I'd say somewhere between when he saved my life (and didn't even mention it!) and our late-night conversation. Or maybe in third year, but I just repressed it. No matter when it happened, something clicked with James Potter, and I felt like a fool. Especially when I learned that he had a girlfriend. Hopefully with stories of a nude Petunia and my charm, he'll see the light.
This will be six chapters.
