Captive - Chapter Three

Hi everyone,

Here we are again for another exciting Saturday night, and already we're almost at the end of October. 

I'm not feeling quite so loquacious this week so I'll move straight on to the story.

Chapter three, and Hermione has been picked, by dastardly Rodolphus Lestrange, to be part of the next bait group to be sent out to trap the Order of the Phoenix. Meanwhile, Lucius is busy serving the Dark Lord. Will he be able to save Hermione in time? 

I was excited to receive a review during the week and would be grateful for more.

Until next week, have fun reading.

Captive - Chapter Two

Happy weekend everybody!

I've had a really horrid week so I'm glad that it's finally the weekend at last and I can relax with a glass of wine.

As I'm sure you're aware a short featurette has just been released about Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, along with the news that there are going to be FIVE . . . yes, that's right . . . five films in the series.

Now, I'll be honest, I'm not entirely sure what I think about this news. Part of me is, obviously, extremely excited about a whole new and previously unknown part of the wizarding world opening up which will give me so much information that I can ruin everyone else I know's lives with for the next decade or so, and the news that the final battle between young Albus Dumbledore and his paramour, Gellert Grindelwald are going to feature eventually is of particular interest - although some of their early relationship has already been covered in the rather excellent fan-made video The Greater Good

My hope is that there will be enough of this new material to sustain the series because I would really hate them to end up being like so many of the film series these days - where they are stretched over several films when one would easily have done (although, fortunately, the Deathly Hallows didn't suffer from this). 

Having said that, I trust Jo, and I'm sure she has a whole wealth of material just waiting to be revealed - knowing her she probably had all this already written while she was releasing Harry Potter.

So what do you think about this news? Does it fill you with delight, with dread, or are you unmoved either way?

I know some people are taking great umbrage that Jo keeps on releasing information (especially when it doesn't tally with their fanon ideas) and they feel she should now leave well alone, but I disagree. At the end of the day she is the author of the stories, and in the same way that we fan-fiction writers can't leave them alone, neither can she - and each new piece of information is always interesting, even if breaks your heart (even I thought Wolfstar could be canon).

So onto my story, and in this second chapter we find that Lucius hasn't exactly fulfilled his bargain with Hermione - the utter cad.

I hope you are enjoying the story and would appreciate a few kind words, either as a review or as a comment on here.

While I remember, there's another video you should check out if you haven't already, called Severus Snape and the Marauders which is made by the same people who made The Greater Good. I was one of the people who backed it on Kickstarter and I think it's a fantastic film - and Mick Ignis as Severus Snape is absolutely spot on.
Have a good week (I hope mine's better than the last one) and I'll see you next weekend for the next chapter.

Stay safe, keep the faith!

New Story - Captive - Chapter One

Hi everyone,

Today I've started posting a new story called Captive. 

It's a Lucius/Hermione story and begins during the summer holiday just after the end of the sixth book. 

When Hermione is captured by Death Eaters, Lucius Malfoy agrees to help her escape — but at a price. Can she trust him to do as he says or will his true nature betray her?  

The story is posted on AFF.Org as it includes frequent graphically lemony content which I don't think would pass the FanFiction.Net filters, so over eighteens only, I'm afraid.

As always I would be interested to know what you think of the story, so reviews and comments are appreciated. 

I hope you enjoy!

Until next week, have fun :)

Worth the Wait - Chapter Nine

Good evening everybody,
Tonight marks the final chapter of my latest story, and a happy ending beckons - at least, hopefully it does!

In case you're interested, the ring that Percy bought for Hermione is below - isn't it beautiful? I'd be a very happy girl if someone bought that for me.

I will be taking a break for a couple of weeks as I've got a few things going on and I want to get some more writing done, but never fear I shall be back shortly with a new story.

If you have enjoyed Worth the Wait, or any of my other stories, I would love a review or comment.

Take care, and enjoy reading.

Until next time,

Worth the Wait - Chapter Eight

Hi everyone,

Just a quickie note as I'm not feeling great and need to go to bed but am aware I'm already late with posting.

We're onto the penultimate chapter of the story. I hope you've been enjoying it.

It's time for Percy to finally talk to Penny - will he actually do what he needs to do or is he going to wimp out?

See you next week for the final chapter. As always I would love a review or comment, especially if you've enjoyed the story.

Have a good week.

Worth the Wait - Chapter Seven

Happy Sunday night,

Sadly, this means work in the morning so once again it's just going to be a quick hello rather than anything more substantial.
I'm feeling quite excited because I've been writing a lot recently, so it shouldn't be too long after this story finishes that the next one gets going (yes, I know I always say that and then it's months before I post again but this time I'm fairly confident).

Anyway, back to the current story. Hermione is about to learn the truth, but will it help?

Worth the Wait - Chapter Seven

I hope you are enjoying the story. Comments and reviews are always welcomed.

Have a good week and I'll see you next weekend, although I'm at a festival for most of it so not sure when I'll get a chance to post.

Worth the Wait - Chapter Six

Hi everyone, 

Another quick posting as I don't have much to say (again).
In this week's chapter of Worth the Wait things are really going downhill fast for our love-struck couple - Percy's cowardice is coming back to bite him!

Thank you for reading. Comments and reviews are always welcomed.

Have a good week and I'll see you next weekend.
