Somebody who really, really ought to be doing something else but just can't stop writing.
As of late, someone who's been too busy doing something else, but it's almost over now. Look here for the latest word: http://friendsofvisarts.org/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=chitchat
Announcement: HP and the Heirs of Slytherin: I've also been making drawings for the first page of each chapter, which are on display in the MNFF Forum, here.
Announcement: "Fair Exchanges:"
This fanfic has exceeded all boundaries of taste (as you should have noticed by Chapter 5). My intended Chapter 22 could not be posted on this site. Unfortunately, unlike other chapters that were pushing the limit, that one could not be either left out or tweaked back in line, as it keeps coming back to haunt our favorite dour Potions professor.
This is no one's fault; please, no mod-bashing. I've been letting my creativity run wild on this fic and it's gone in some very strange places, not the least of which was the Real Chapter 22. Unfortunately this time, it was in violation of MNFF's posted content restrictions. I never imagined the story would go this way when I began posting, but it has evolved into its own sort of evil life form and now it needs a new habitat.
Soooo...here's the deal. Here at MNFF, I've posted the very end of the story just to wrap it up for local readers. If you want to find out how it all ends, just read the posted Ch. 22, 23, and epilogue.
If you'd like to read the whole thing, I'm archiving it at The Petulant Poetess. TPP has the entire story up-to-date, though it is not yet complete. It also includes The Real Chapter 8, another Missing Bit that was too squicky for MNFF. Titled "What Goes Around," this chapter recounts the time Lucius Malfoy dropped by to have a word with Professor Snape regarding the Umbridge Incident... ;)
All of my HP fanfics can be found at my livejournal (Fawkes_07.livejournal.com) but all adult entries are friendlocked. If you don't have a Livejournal account, just create one (it's free) and then either friend me or email me. I'll add you to my Friends list and voila, all will be readable.
Finally, if you really like my writing, you might want to check out my book (turondo.com is its website). It's the true story about an unlikely adventure I had in another fandom a few years ago ("unlikely" being the most garish understatement of all time). Let me put it this way: If you crave that Fawkesey snark, well, Teh Book has it in spades.
Okay! Enjoy your reading!
Summary: Who was Lucius Malfoy's first love? Someone who stole his heart caused him more trouble than ever he expected and introduced him to romance in winter.
This story has been nominated in the hurt/comfort category in owl.tauri.org's awards for 2006 fanfics. It has also recieved a Runner-Up award for Best Romance in the Mod Quicksilver Quills.
Author's Response: Thanks! *passes tissues*
I shouldn't double-post, but you know what I like best about this chapter? The fact that if he wasn't so greedy he could probably keep her. But he's too concerned about making sure his own Daddy Dearest won't write him out of the Malfoy fortune to take charge of his life. Oooh, divine justice or something like that. Karmic smackdown.
Author's Response: Well, maybe -- but then he wouldn\'t be Lucius, either. There needed to be a sort of mismatch of priorities here, and besides, how would Lucius himself react to a miniature Arthur in his nest? Not well, I\'m thinking. Thanks for reviewing some more!
Summary: Oh how can I lure you to Read and Review?
When this was first penned all its clichés were new.
There’s angst laced with humour and tender enchantment,
The grammar and lexicon serve as enhancement.
And who could object to Snape’s wholesale redemption,
Or thoughts about sex – sufficient temptation?
PRACTICALLY THE OLDEST SNAPE-HERMIONE ON THE NET.
I read this at ff.net and still think it's one of the best SS/HG fics out there. Glad to see it here with a new chapter...!
Summary: On the night before her wedding, Lily has second thoughts.
*melts into puddle*
Can I just say how much I adore every word you write??
*wonders where Harry's going to come from now...Petunia??*
Author's Response: By the way -- I like your bio. So very, very, true for so many of us! Thanks for reviewing, and melting, and making me giggle at the idea of HarryReplacement!Dudley out saving the Wizarding world.
Summary: At some point there had to have been a choice.
The logical place to begin a story is at the point of the first decision. But what if there were no decisions? What if, at every point, there was only one possible act? What if the story simply cannot be told?
Completed (though not posted) entirely pre-DH.
Very nice chapter.
Yikes! Okay, on edge of seat now...
