Scaring Muggles is More of a Hobby

Had quite a bit of fun with this run! Lucius and Snape get summoned to the Dark Lord and are told to take out a rival Reformist Wizarding group, known as The Maligned Hand. He wants them to do it themselves, and is using it as a type of test for Lucius’ guts and Severus’ skill. And yes, they have to make their own army. x)

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.

And I more than made up for my dearth of writing yesterday, so I’m back to being ahead of schedule for Camp NaNo! So pleased.

A busy Friday, and not enough writing done

Not too much written today, but enough I think considering it is Friday. I worked earlier, went to the gym afterwards, picked up supplies for my Dragon*Con costume, and even got to catch up on another episode of Game of Thrones.

Poor Severus’ life just gets more and more difficult. But he has new found respect for Lucius as he manipulates a power, unexpected guest to the party. And he also realizes just how good his friend is at putting on an act.

Still looking over steampunk clothing ideas for Dragon*Con, but honestly that feels like its quite a ways away for me right now with NaNo going. Oh! And my Blu-Ray Lord of the Rings trilogy came in today! Ooooh, sooooo bright! Sooooo beautiful! I did what any self-respecting LoTR fan did upon receiving it, and pulled out each set to view all the lovely discs inside! I’m looking forward to getting a chance to rewatch them all again, but with the final Harry Potter film coming up next week, I think I’ll be catching up on my films in the more recent future. I know I want to watch Prisoner of Azkaban, and Deathly Hallows Part 1. Hopefully I won’t need a box of kleenex to keep me going. I already know I’ll be bringing one come next week though.

Dude Looks Like a Lady

The three of them finally decide on a name for the boy, and then Severus gets a lesson in acting like a lady. Then the party begins, and Severus realizes just how uncomfortable it is to be Bellatrix’s sister.

Wow it was difficult getting through the middle point of this writing today. I got stuck in conversations, and had trouble figuring out when to end it. Once I got to the party itself though, I found it went much easier. Severus is having a tough time of it, but he’s holding out in his rather awkward situation. I’m sure the Malfoys will be grateful to him later, even if Draco never truly knows what all he did for them. 😉

Stealing a Kiss

Lucius and Narcissa experiment with charms, and Lucius and Severus exchange a heated kiss. Then Narcissa gets confronted with her own silly stubbornness, and Lucius expresses that he’s just a tad bit nervous about the famed Black temper. He’d really rather let Severus explain a sticky situation than be forced to himself. After all, he has to live with the woman!

It was pretty tough to get this word count out today, but once I let these three take over the plot, I found it much easier to work through. They’re a load of fun to write, and their banter keeps even the tamest of conversations quite entertaining. I guess that’s to be expected of a trio of Slytherins.
