I’ve been trying to post Chapter 64, Narcissa’s Surprise, since yesterday, but FFnet is apparently having a sitewide, log in and uploading problem, and I’ve been unable to upload the chapter.

Be patient — I’ll get the chapter up as soon as FFnet allows me to do so.

How Should I End Hermione’s Choice? December 15, 2008

I’ve reached a point in the story where I need to make a decision and I’m seeking reader input about it.

Hermione’s Choice has been a longer and more successful story than I ever imagined when beginning to write it.  When I post this week’s chapter, it will go over one hundred thousand words, which will make it the longest story I’ve ever written.

For the future of this story, I have three choices:

  • End the story with the birth of Lucius’ and Hermione’s baby, and add an epilogue of a length I’ve yet to determine.
  • Keep on writing the story, with perhaps a jump at some point to several years in the future, which would most likely be their daughter’s first year at Hogwarts.
  • Write a sequel story, beginning with their daughter’s first year at Hogwarts

Keep in mind that I have a new Lucius story on the drawing board now, entitled The Only Daughter.  This story will not pair him with Hermione.  (I’ll leave the pairing a secret until I start posting).   If I choose to write a sequel to Hermione’s Choice,   I will write The Only Daughter first, before proceeding to writing the sequel.

Your result for The Are You A Muggle? Test…

Magical Apprentice

Whoosh! You scored a whopping ###%.

You’re in the second highest category. You’ve got a good imagination, you’re not afraid to take “flights of fancy” every now and again, and you probably believe that miracles can happen. There are times when you might be just a little too pragmatic for your own good, but that’s okay. You’re still above average in your “magicality.” Good for you!

Pictured below is the engagement ring Draco gave Luna.  I chose a heart shaped ruby because Luna seems dreamily romantic, and the unique setting fits Luna’s quirky personality.

They’ve not yet cast the character of Xeno Lovegood for the Deathly Hallows movies, but I’ve always pictured the actor Christopher Lloyd in this role.  Unfortunately, this will not happen, as Lloyd is, regrettably, not British.  However, for the purposes of my story, you can imagine him has looking like Christopher Lloyd, too.

Following are a couple of photos of Lloyd to help you visualize Xeno

A Song Filk September 1, 2008

Some of you may have read my collection of Patriot song parodies/filks, Tavington’s Christmas Revels. I’ve not really taken the time to do some Harry Potter filks, but I did post one on the Leaky Lounge forum a few months ago, which I thought I’d share with you today.  I hope to write more HP themed filks in the future.

Death Eaters
Sung to the tune of “Bad Company”, by Bad Company, 1974

Death Eaters
That’s how we are known
Destiny
As the Dark Lord’s own

Oh, I was born as a pureblood man
Behind a wand I’ll make my final stand
That’s why we follow
Lord Voldemort
And I can’t deny
Lord Voldemort
Till the day I die
Till the day I die
Till the day I die

Dark wizards
Death Eaters we are called
Chose the dark
And threw away the light

The Order
They all know our names
Dark magic is our claim to fame
I will follow him

Lord Voldemort
And I won’t deny
I’m Lord Voldemort’s
Till the day I die
Till the day I die

Here’s Lucius in the muggle clothes he wore to visit the Grangers. Kind of odd to see him dressed like a muggle, but no less sexy!

Malfoy Manor August 6, 2008

I’ve been searching the net for a good picture of what I imagine Malfoy Manor to look like. The picture I found, ironically, is of the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC, which is the largest private home in the United States. It was built in 1895 by the Vanderbilt family, who no longer inhabit the mansion and it has now been turned into a museum, with an attached winery.

I was privileged to tour the Biltmore House during the 1989 Christmas season — I live only two hours from it — and let me assure you that the interior is also quite fit for a Malfoy.
