Lucius: A Pregnant Wife Means a Lack of Sleep

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.

This story’s coming along quite nicely! I’ve been pretty sick all day though, and it’ll probably be another week before I’m back to my regular non-sick self again. I’m taking plenty of antibiotics, but it’s amazing how I just get thoroughly wiped during the day sometimes. Too bad it has to happen around Camp NaNo though… I’m just glad it’s the weekend!

Lucius and Severus finish up their investigation, Lucius learns what it’s like to deal with a pregnant wife, and falls asleep on a chair with a glass of wine. (Pretty typical Lucius, if I do say!) Then Severus comes in with – OMG WTF BBQ news. Like he does. šŸ˜‰

That was a hot little scene right there! Lucius and Severus are examining the corpses, and of course, it turns into a fight/make-out session. Needless to say, Severus loses the argument, and ends up making not just one agreement, but two. I’m coming along nicely on the story, though I’m not even out of the first chapter yet! *grin* I guess my story’s going to be a long one at this rate.

Oh and this is one of the fics I’m working on for Camp NaNoWriMo this summer, and you can check out my progress over here. The site’s still a little rough around the edges, but I don’t care. Writing motivation is still there, regardless of the details.

And Rapunzel’s Daughters came out today! *cheer* You definitely should take a peek inside at the Amazon link and take a look at some of the tales & beautiful pictures. If you’re interested in purchasing one, I recommend getting it from the publisher. That way more of your cash goes to the actual publishers, artists, and writers instead of a percentage going to the corporation.
