A Thousand Words (epilogue pt 2)

  • 23rd Dec, 2006 at 3:38 PM
Here's y'all's Christmas present: the last chapter of ATW ^_^ I just finished writing it in one sitting, and it's insanely short. (I wrote the first third or so wayyyy back when I first started the fic, so it didn't take too long.)

Title: A Thousand Words (epilogue pt 2) - Passing Bells and Sculpted Angels
Word Count: 933

*tear* This is the end of the road...Collapse )

Well... that's it! I started this fic on December 18, 2005, and now, a year and five days later, I'm finally finished with it.

I know everyone must be thinking, "Wow, what a freak, she can't write a story without killing someone off," but I swear (and I know I don't have any evidence to support this, but it's true!) that that's not true >.> Anyway, I'll save the excuses since I've probably said them about a million times already. Umm... yeah, I don't know what else I should say here. Thanks *SO* much to everyone who reviewed and encouraged me to keep writing. I appreciate all of your support more than I can express in words. Even if most of you don't follow me into the D/H world, I'll never forget your kindness ^_^

Oh yes, and Happy Holidays, of course! I'm going to be spending mine reading D/H fics, writing SKOM, and finishing college apps... *is muy excited, albeit not so much about the latter*

A Thousand Words (epilogue pt 1)

  • 16th Dec, 2006 at 7:59 PM
ZOMG, it's an ATW-related update. Yes, I spent the better half of this afternoon finishing this crappy little chapter because I can't stand having unfinished chapters sitting around, so here it is. I don't know if it's normal for epilogues to have two parts, but whatever. This is basically Hermione's part of the epilogue. Draco's is next. Thank goodness I'm nearly done with this fic... and that it was nice enough to end up the way I planned for it to end up...

Title: A Thousand Words (epilogue pt 1) - A World With No More Night
Word Count: 1344

I've had the title of this chapter decided ever since I started the fic, I thinkCollapse )

I hope it wasn't obvious that I was like, majorly rushing through this chapter. Hm. Well, now it probably is... Anyway, I don't *think* this story ended as depressingly as The Sweetest Sin did. I really regret what I did with SS, plus I don't want people to think that I'm some emo freak who doesn't know how to write a happy ending. It's just that none of the multi-chapter fics I've written so far work well with a happy ending. In the future my fics will be less discouraging. I promise.

But yeah, this fic isn't really over yet. One more chapter to go. (Mixed feelings about that and stuff.)

Edit: Garrett Hedlund (the guy who plays Murtagh in the Eragon movie) is crazy hot. Well, I haven't seen the movie yet because everyone who's seen it says it's absolute crap (I've read the book though, and I thought it was absolute crap too), but I just IMDb'd him. He's probably even hotter playing Murtagh. Maybe I'll go see the movie just for him. Just sayin'.

A Thousand Words (ch 33)

  • 2nd Dec, 2006 at 12:13 PM
Gah. Okay, sorry for the lack of updates. I was sick and having a REALLY hard time with college apps and school, but now I feel a little better. I'm still worried about apps, but I'm trying to put that aside. Our school had its first snow day in fourteen years yesterday, which was pretty exciting (we found out at 6:30 am and by 6:45 am, there was already a group and an event made about it on Facebook), but my internet wasn't working so I spent the day moping around and writing occasionally. Oh, but I've gotten into a new anime called Kyo Kara Maoh and I'm hopelessly obsessed with it. I actually quit anime for all of November, but I went into relapse >.> But it does sorta have ties to HP...I mean, the main slashable pairing, Yuuri/Wolfram, is basically the anime version of Harry/Draco xD

Well, enough chatter then. As the title indicates, I've finished chapter 33 FINALLY. Sorry it took so long...it just dragged on and on and never seemed to end. I definitely didn't do as good of a job as I had hoped I would originally for the last chapter, but whatever, it's finished. If I feel the need to, I'll go back and edit it when I'm in the mood to.

Title: A Thousand Words (ch 33) - One Final Question
Word Count: 5523

Le gasp...It's the last chapter!Collapse )

I know there's not much a resolve, so wait for the epilogue :) The story's not done yet!

Oh yeah, and I just received an e-mail from the MNFF mods saying that I received validation status and that I no longer need to wait for my chapters to be validated. Yay ^_^ This will make life a lot easier. But...I don't think it's working?

A Thousand Words (ch 32)

  • 12th Nov, 2006 at 6:15 PM
Ah, well, I've run into a spot of trouble with ATW. It's just that Ron is so dreadfully boring that I don't even know what to do with him. No need to fear, though; the chapter will be done soon enough, since there isn't much left in it to do (it's only going to be about 1500 words...it's actually something of a worthless chapter, so there's really no need to read it at all :P). So yes, before anyone starts freaking out over the possibility of me neglecting ATW, I'll have you know that I intend to finish it ASAP.

*five minutes later*

Okay, as it turns out, I just finished writing chapter 32, and I do believe it's the most pointless chapter I've ever written in my...life? Oh well, it's sort of a break for me, since I'm trying to save up all my dramatic inspiration for the big showdown...err, I mean, finale. *is giving away too much now*. I'm not entirely sure when that will be up, but it's the next chapter (aka the last chapter before the two-part epilogue). So yeah, it should be full of yummy angst.

Title: A Thousand Words (ch 32) - Breathing Lies
Word Count: 1565 (hey, I said it'd be short)

I believe this is what they call 'filler'...Collapse )

I think I might actually edit that chapter and add some things (if I'm not too lazy) before I post it on MNFF. Thankfully I have quite a bit of time before I reach chapter 32 there.

Next chapter: Hermione's injured, Draco's depressed, and Ron's angrier than an insulted hippogriff. What will happen when they all end up together in the same room? Faced with the daunting task of choosing between two (or is it three?) men, who will Hermione go with?

Oh, and one more thing. Here's a brief update on my Harry/Draco fic (which I'm going to call Miraculous until I decide on a better title): I got started on it right after I made that last post, and am now deeply immersed in it. I read a few more Drarry fics today and yesterday and feel very inspired now. At the risk of sounding conceited, I'm sorta excited about the plot of my fic, although I don't know if I'm going to be able to write it very well since I'm struggling already (writing depressed!Harry/depressed!Draco is a LOT harder than one might think). But basically, if anyone has watched A Walk to Remember, they'll recall the list of things Jamie said she wanted to do before she died. Well, in my fic, Draco also creates a list of things he wants to do before he dies after he is given seven months to return to Hogwarts and finish school. After those seven months are over, he has to go and receive the Dementor's Kiss (because he was a Death Eater during the war). And...okay, I'm not going to spoil it more, but I wrote two chapters while I was trying to figure out what to do with chapter 32 and I'll start posting them after I finish writing ATW (or maybe before that if I run into a bit of writer's block...but don't panic; hopefully that won't happen). Here's the summary, if anyone's interested:

The second war is over, and the wizarding world is slowly beginning to heal itself. Meanwhile, the wound in Harry Potter’s heart remains open – that is, until one day when he somehow manages to temporarily save a certain former Death Eater from a formidable death sentence. When the both of them are forced to return to school against their will, past feelings of hatred between them are restored – but how long will they last before fate begins to intervene? Harry/Draco

Yes, very allusive summary. As previous stated, I fail at writing summaries.

Oh, and one last thing (I'm sorry, I talk too much) - I've compiled a list of the fics I've read that I think are worth reading, so if anyone is interested, it can be found here.

A Thousand Words (ch 31)

  • 10th Nov, 2006 at 1:29 PM
Yay, chapter 31. I've basically become re-obsessed with this fic over the past few days...I seriously refused to minimize Microsoft Word all day yesterday because I wanted to keep writing. The only thing is I stole a lotta things from other stories in this chapter >.> Well, no, not a lot of things...but the palm-to-palm thing is from that H/D fic I mentioned in my last post, and the "Maybe it wouldn't be so bad being in love with Draco" thing is from the anime Peach Girl. But anyway, they're not huge things, so hopefully no one minds?

Also, before I get to the chapter, I just wanted to talk about my next Dramione fic. I'm REALLY excited to write it, but as I told Chungsol in the comments on the last post, I'm also a bit reluctant to write it. I love writing Dramione; honestly, I do; but I want to try something different. Even though I always find myself unable to continue writing other ships and returning to Dramione, I need to start expanding my horizons. I really want to write a Harry/Draco fic, but at the moment, I don't have any great plots in mind. If I do come up with one, I'm probably going to start an H/D fic before I get to my Dramione fic and see how it goes. Chances are I won't finish it, but you never know...

So yeah. Just a word in advance :D Now, onto the chapter. By the way, I just added the lyrics onto the beginning of the chapter because I discovered the song and realised it was PERFECT for Dramione (especially in this fic ^_^).

Title: A Thousand Words (ch 31) - Shape in the Shadows
Word Count: 3857

Dramaaaaa...Collapse )

By the way, chapter 23 is out on MNFF ^_^

Next chapter: This one's going to be a bit boring and extremely short. We leave Hermione and Draco in the forest and head on over to check up on Kay and Ron. What happens when a Ministry owl drops a letter addressed to Hermione into Ron's hands?

A Thousand Words (ch 30)

  • 8th Nov, 2006 at 8:04 PM
Mmkay, here's chapter 30. This one's a tad bit boring with lots of angsty Draco moments...there's almost no dialogue though, so I expect the people who tend to skip over narration and jump to dialogue instead while reading won't find this chapter too enjoyable :P Nevertheless, the ending is rather important, so if you decide to skip over anything, at least make sure to read that.

Title: A Thousand Words (ch 30) - Words Run Dry
Word Count: 3373

For some reason, I found the conversation between Daphne and her friend highly amusing.Collapse )

Next chapter: Hermione and Draco set off into the Wyrd Woods, hoping to find the answer to the mystery of Madam Malkin's murder. What they find lying in store for them, however, is more than anything either of them could ever have expected.

♥ Annie

P.S. - Excuse my language, but holy shit. I just discovered the most amazing Harry/Draco fic (actually, THE most amazing fic period). I'm half-way into it and crying and laughing at the same time. I highly encourage anyone who appreciates slash to read it. I finished it (yes, I did not budge from my seat until I finished the entire fic) and I have to revise my previous statement: I am now a bawling, incoherent mess, and ANYONE with a heart must read the fic right now. I don't care if you don't like slash...READ IT, GODDAMNIT! Beautiful World by Cinnamon.

A Thousand Words (ch 29)

  • 5th Nov, 2006 at 3:51 PM
I didn't mean to taunt anyone with that last post! I don't really mind either way; I was just wondering what you guys wanted. But since no one expressed any opposition to my posting it ASAP, I figured I'd go ahead and put it up :P I got started on chapter 30 today and so far it's going well...I have no idea how long it's gonna last, though...my writing streaks really do have a mind of their own...

Title: A Thousand Words (ch 29) - The Final Threshold
Word Count: 3300

I was in a really PotO mood...hence all the not-so-subtle use of lyrics from PotO songs >.>Collapse )

Next chapter: Draco comes to terms with his feelings while trying to deal with the sudden suspicions of the rest of the Ministry of Magic.

A Thousand Words (ch 28)

  • 2nd Nov, 2006 at 11:01 PM
YES! IT'S FINALLY HERE! Okay, so this stupid chapter better be worth it because I just wasted away two hours writing it (which equals a two-hour loss in homework time and consequently two hours less of sleep). Although to be honest, I really don't think it's worth it. I haven't had avada_k check over it yet so if anyone sees any errors/has any criticism to contribute, I would greatly appreciate it. But yes, I wanted to post it since I'm just happy that I finally finished a chapter :P

Title: A Thousand Words (ch 28) - Silent Tears
Word Count: 3426 (sorry, it's not as long as I promised...I decided to cut out the part where Hermione goes to visit the forest and the woman because after adding in the scene with Draco, I realised that the chapter was long enough)

Poor tortured Draco...Collapse )

Next chapter: Shadow and Starlight meet again. Will they be able to go through with their plan to finally reveal their identities? Only time will tell...

(I can't wait to write this chapter, so hopefully it'll be up soon.)

Okay, well, I sent this chapter to my beta, avada_k, this weekend but she hasn't yet replied, so I'm going to go ahead and post this. If any of y'all catch any errors, please let me know. Also, if you have any suggestions, I'm open to those too. This is, obviously, a pretty crucial chapter, and I want it to be as good as it can possibly be :P

Ooooh. How will Draco react to this revelation? Stay tuned! :P

A Thousand Words (ch 26)

  • 8th Sep, 2006 at 6:19 PM
So basically, I'm angry at life because 1) I haven't had the time to eat a proper meal over the past two days, 2) likewise, I haven't had much sleep either so I'm pretty much falling asleep as I type this, 3) college apps are killing me softly brutally, 4) school in general just sucks, and 5) YOUTUBE FREAKING DELETED WOLPHIEXXX'S ACCOUNT (and JUST when I decided to finally break the hiatus from watching Sailor Moon I decided to take due to lack of time). If I had just watched the next three episodes, I could have continued watching them on someone else's account, but nope, I just have to have the worst timing ever. For those who aren't aware of the details of my Sailor Moon obsession, wolphiexxx is like, the only person on YouTube who provided all 200 of the subbed Sailor Moon episodes. There are various dubbed versions floating around on the site, but the dubbed versions are awful...not only is Serena's voice painful to listen to, but they had to turn it into a children's show and cut a lot of the violence, sexual references, AND, worst of all, slash relationships. Which means Michiru and Haruka are COUSINS. Understand why I can't watch the dubs? Besides, those three episodes I didn't watch can't be found anywhere on YouTube, not even dubbed. So now I have to resort to killing my poor computer by downloading a 803284903284092gb zipped torrent of all of Sailor Moon S.

Okay, enough of that. Hopefully everyone just skipped past that paragraph because there's nothing of interest. Amy got back to me on chapter 27, so here it is. By the way, it killed me to write the stair scene too. (In case you're not aware, I expect everyone to lament over my awfulness for writing it, because Ron/Hermione is a terrible, terrible ship.)
