Wands in Guarder Belts

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.

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. šŸ˜‰

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.

Boo yeah! Beat my 10k mark. =) This officially counts as a Lucius Roar now. Wrote a simple but sweet scene with Lucius and Narcissa as they try to figure out what to do about the Prophecy (especially with the dangerous additional information they now know about). Then the Malfoys came up with a most malicious idea indeed, and their plan is set into motion.

In other news last night we hung out with friends and family an played some Wii Resort Bowling. It was a lot of fun, and we were able to get the house cleaned up before everybody dropped by. *Whew!* Add my daily NaNo word count and the fact that I’m recovering from a nasty sinus infection, and I think it went pretty well.

It’s not precisely how I anticipated spending my 4th of July weekend, but it certainly isn’t bad. And I feel a lot better than I did Friday. Lets hope next week is nice and easy-going!

Almost through with the word count requirement, and I’m only about halfway through the story. Lucius and Snape get into a fight, though it doesn’t exactly start out that way. Severus is damn upset and Lucius gives him the only advice he can think of, regardless of how crazy it sounds. Oh and he realizes that it suddenly is a great idea to have their kid a bit premature. Poor guys.
