New Story - Dear Mym

Hi everyone,

As promised the last time I posted, I'm finally starting a new story. It is a reimagining of the whole seven-book saga through the eyes of someone outside of the action and will be posted on AO3 and FanFiction.Net. It is generally suitable for anyone 13 and above although there is a bit of swearing if that sort of thing bothers you.

On 1 September 1991, Charlotte (Charlie) Fawley is about to take up her first position since leaving teacher training college, as the Muggle Studies professor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Follow her as she gets to grips with school life through a series of letters to her best friend, Mymosa (Mym) Tallisker, the ex-Holyhead Harpies goalkeeper. 

Thank you for taking the time to read. I hope you enjoy the story. Comments and kudos are always appreciated.

Have a good week.

New Story - A Debt Repaid

Well hello everyone.

It's been quite a while, hasn't it? 

I've been busy plugging away at writing (no I haven't really, to be honest, I've mainly been busy becoming overinvested in The Librarians (because I love Jenkins - I am absolutely gutted that it's been cancelled just after I discovered it), The Good Place (which is just crazy good) and Meteor Garden (because it's so darn cute) although there has been a little bit of writing going on too. 

Over the summer I've been working on a couple of Hermione/Arthur stories which have been quite heavy and serious in places, so I was getting a bit bogged down and needed to write something light and frothy to get me back on track. The result is the following short story, A Debt Repaid

It's quite lemony throughout so it's being posted on AFF.Org (sorry, no under-eighteens this time), as well as being added to my collection on AO3.

Hermione thinks Arthur owes her, but will he pay up?

I hope you enjoy the story and if you do I would really appreciate it if you would leave a review, comment or kudos as it always makes my day.

I'm heading back off into the wilderness to continue with my stories and prepare for NaNoWriMo, which is rushing towards us far faster than I would like. I think this years' challenge might have to be my annual Christmas story (I'm only going for one this year . . . at the moment, anyway). I have something in mind but need to see how far I can get with it as I've not really plotted it properly yet.

I have another new story, reimagining the HP series through the eyes of an OFC, which I should hopefully, be able to start posting in a few weeks if I manage to get my arse in gear and get it finished.

Until then, enjoy whatever you're reading (I'm currently reading Lethal White

Twenty Four Hours - Chapter Twelve

Good evening everyone,

I can't believe I finally go on holiday in three days time - I honestly can't wait to get away from everything and just enjoy the sun, the swimming pool and loads and loads of lovely free cocktails πŸΈ (hic!) 

But before I go running off to pack my case (no, of course I haven't started yet), it's time for the twelfth and final chapter of Twenty Four Hours.

Severus has secretly arranged for he and Hermione to have the day off work. But will they actually get the day off Severus was hoping for, or will Hermione's need to control every situation kick in and cause a big fight between them? 

Thank you for sticking with this story until the end. I hope you've enjoyed it, and if you've just found it, thank you for giving it a try. 

Any comments, kudos and reviews are always appreciated, especially if they say nice things, as it gives me a warm glow to know that people are enjoying my work. Valid and constructive criticism is also welcomed as I appreciate the chance to grow and improve. However, rude comments and flames are always deleted and reported as they do no one any favours and ruin what is supposed to be a bit of fun. 

So I'm off 😎 - see you when I get back. Hopefully, the break will leave me refreshed and inspired and ready to complete some of those stories I've currently got hanging around doing nothing.

Until next time.

Twenty Four Hours - Chapter Eleven

Happy Monday!

I know, I seem particularly happy, especially as it's Monday but it means there is only one more before I jet off for my wonderful week of sun and relaxation in beautiful Malta.

This also means that next week is the final part of Twenty Four Hours. Oh no, what will you do without it?

I'd like to say I've been busy writing and got a new story ready for posting on my return from holiday but I'd be mainly lying. While I have been doing a bit of writing and have quite a few stories part-finished, sadly I'm not close to getting any of them to my beta, the wonderful Mamacita, for editing. There may be a couple of one-shots coming up, but I'm not yet sure when my next full story will be ready for posting. Obviously, you'll hear about it here first.

So onto the penultimate chapter, and it's tissues at the ready as we've been invited to a wedding. Fingers crossed it all goes well. Ah, doesn't the bride look lovely, and those bridesmaids dresses . . . . 

As ever a comment, kudos or review is always welcome. 

And so, I head off into the night, blissfully counting down the days until next Monday and the final part of the story.

Oh yes, and finally,

Happy Gryffindor week! 
(According to Bloomsbury, anyway).

Twenty Four Hours - Chapter Ten

Evening all,

Here we are again, the end of a long weekend, another week closer to my holiday, and another chapter of Twenty Four Hours posted.

The end of the project has finally come, but what is Hermione going to do next? She still has choices to make, but will she get it right?

Thank you for sticking with the story. I hope you're enjoying it. If so, kudos, comments and reviews are always welcome.

I'll see you next week when we reach the penultimate chapter.

Twenty Four Hours - Chapter Nine

Happy Monday everyone.

I haven't got much to say as I'm feeling knackered and need to go to bed. So without further ado, let's move on to chapter nine of Twenty Four Hours.

Hermione's still trying to explain herself, poor love, and she's not making too many friends

As ever a comment, review or even just kudos is really appreciated, especially if you're enjoying the story. And feel to check out my old stories in the links in the sidebar. There might be something else you enjoy - or want to revisit if you're a regular reader.

See you next week.

Twenty Four Hours - Chapter Eight

Another Monday has arrived and my hayfever has kicked in big time so I can't stop sneezing and I can hardly see the computer to post. The heat has been and gone, and come back, and gone again. Tonight I'm feeling a bit chilly but I'm not sure why. Anyway. regardless of all that guff that you probably didn't want to know, it's time for chapter eight of Twenty Four Hours.

Hermione has people to talk to - but she really doesn't want to . . . and will she ever make a decision?

As always I'm doing a quick plug for comments, kudos and reviews. I always like to hear what people think of the story, especially if they're enjoying it. 

I was going to join the HP re-read on Good Reads as I haven't done my annual re-read of the books yet apart from skim reading plot points for a new story I'm working on, but having signed up and only seen a post a couple of days ago about how they were starting with the Fantastic Beasts script, suddenly they're about to start Chamber of Secrets. I haven't dug the books out yet, let alone started reading, so maybe I'll have to go at my own pace and not take part in the challenge.

What are you reading at the moment? Recommendations both for fan fiction and original stories are always welcome. 

See you next week,
