The Pit and Other Nasty Places

Today was my attempt at catching up, and I think I did a pretty good job all things considered. My word count for the day was truly epic considering my great lack of words the last few days, and I’m pleased to say that I’ve written enough words to make up for just over two days of Camp NaNo this month. True, I’ll be the first to admit that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 definitely disrupted my usual writing schedule, but I think I’ll be able to handle it. If you had asked me this morning, I wouldn’t have been *nearly* as optimistic.

It’s just after 9:00 here and the day is winding down. Getting ready to start the new week and not exactly looking forward to work starting afresh. I’ve been enjoying the ability to be awash in one of my favorite fandoms all weekend, and it’s never fun going back to the real world. If I had my way, I’d be able to stay in my fantasy worlds more often.

Summary: The time is before the Prophecy, and a young Lucius Malfoy is sent to explore the disappearance of a Death Eater family. When he comes across their bodies, he calls on Severus to assist him. Together they have to figure out the mystery behind the murder, and deal with the revelation of the Prophecy – and how Lucius and Narcissa’s son might be involved.

The Order of the Phoenix working with two Death Eaters on a potential suicide mission. What could possibly go wrong? Lucius finds himself along with Dumbledore and Sirius on a task that’s quite a bit more disgusting than he expected, and then learns a horrible fact about this pit of dead bodies they stumbled upon. Hopefully they didn’t miscalculate the dangers that The Maligned Hand truly pose!

Coming Up: The Boss fight and dealing with The Hand once and for all.
