Looks like it's back up. So this is me breathing a sigh of relief. Just server issues, I guess. I'll get back to editing Padfoot's Tale now....
pica_scribit: (Gryffindor - RL/SB - Survivor's Guilt)
In honour of today, which would have been Remus Lupin's 50th birthday, I've just finished editing Moony's Tale, the very first R/S fic I wrote back in 2004. Among the changes made is a complete re-write of Chapter 10, which, oddly enough, is called "Happy Birthday, Moony". People seemed to enjoy this story last time, and hopefully it's even better now.

Title: Survivor's Guilt: Moony's Tale
Author: [livejournal.com profile] pica_scribit
Rating: PG-13 except Ch 10 for underage first time sex
Word Count: 70605
Genre: Romance, Drama, Slash
Main Characters: Remus Lupin, Sirius Black
Pairing: Remus/Sirius
Synopsis: The events of Prisoner of Azkaban from the point of view of Remus Lupin. His struggle to come to terms with the baffling actions of his former lover, culminating in a second chance he never thought possible. Plus lots of Marauders-era flash-backs.
Timeline: August 1993-June 1994
Disclaimer: I am not J. K. Rowling. I own nothing. Please don't sue me.
Author's Note: In this story, Remus's birthday is celebrated on September 10, the calendar opposite his actual birthday, since, according to my version of events, he was bitten by the wolf the day he turned six. Feedback is, as always, my drug of choice. As usual, please report any errors or inconsistencies.


Excerpt:
Light. Sunlight. Light falling across his eyes, waking him. He had dreamed -- No.

He opened his eyes wide enough to squint, putting up a hand to block the dawning daylight streaming into his room. He lay naked on the cold stone floor, comforter dragged over him, the room in disarray. He sat up.

A full moon last night -- yes, that was it. It was coming back to him, slowly. He remembered taking the potion. Harry had been there for that. It must have some narcotic compound in it that was making his brain so fuzzy. He remembered the feast somewhat less clearly. Things became even more confused after that. But he knew there was something important -- something he must remember.

Eyes. Pale eyes looking at him. No, that must have been a dream.

The image of the slashed portrait came floating to the surface of his mind. Sirius. Sirius had been in the castle last night, trying to get into Gryffindor tower. And he had been in this room. On Remus's own bed.

I want to thank [livejournal.com profile] hp_joss_isboss for the truly amazing fanmix she has created (including cover art) for my Survivor's Guilt stories. Wow. Stunning job! Do please go and take a look. She obviously put a lot of work into this. I am deeply flattered.
pica_scribit: (Gryffindor - RL/SB - Survivor's Guilt)
I had a hard time getting started on this chapter, but I think as I went on, the energy of it started to flow really well. This sequence of events made sense to me, and I hope they work for everyone else. I had fun sprinkling non-PoA canon references throughout this chapter.

I think there are only two chapters left to write, and then I will need a Grade-A, nit-picky beta to go over this whole damn thing with a fine-tooth comb. Any volunteers or recommendations? If more than one person wants to do it, great! I want this story to be as near to perfect as possible. That means canon-picking and Brit-picking, in addition to the standard spelling/grammar/punctuation all-over.

Looks like Padfoot's Tale is going to come in about 10,000 words behind Moony's Tale. However, that might change if I ever get around to doing the edit I want to do on chapters 19-22 of Moony's Tale. They drag more than a bit, and should be tightened up into just two -- or better yet, one -- chapters. They were a pain in the ass to write, and took me forever, but I don't care. They have to go.

Incidentally, I need someone to make me an animated icon. Nothing complicated, but I don't have the software or know-how to do the damn things myself. Any takers?

Y'all hate me, don't you? I wouldn't be surprised. I've been such a bad dealer. My poor little addicts! :p I don't think I even posted chapter 12 back when I wrote it, but here it is, along with some more crack fic, just for you. And now you love me again, right?

I am still websiteless, and I want to link to this story from my [livejournal.com profile] potterxcohen community, so I am re-posting it here. This is an edited version that some of you may not have seen before. I think the most noticable differences are the title change and the slurring of drunk!Remus's speech.

Disclaimer: As always, the Potterverse is owned by the lovely J.K. Rowling. Please don't sue me, Jo. The lyrics in this chapter are the property of Leonard Cohen, and come from his 1988 album, I'm Your Man, which I *highly* recommend.

I am sorry this chapter is so short. I tried, but it didn't want to be any longer. Hopefully there is enough in here to keep you happy! Well, some of you I *know* wanted to see the makeup scene following "Lessons in Lycanthropy". I am very sorry it's been so long since I updated.

Chapter 10: Absolution )

So I just finished a huge edit/HTMLing of Moony's Tale, and I have nowhere to post it. Fixed canon conflicts, contradictions, word choice, and myriad small details. Some different chapter titles as well, 'cos they were *boring*. I am contemplating posting it in my journal, but I don't want to flood anyone's flist. It's huge, after all, and would require many posts. It does look all pretty and polished now, though. It will be up somewhere as soon as I can manage.

For now, I just can't resist posting this segment of dialogue, which I really enjoyed writing.

Ooh! Look! I am posting! And I broke Sirius out of Azkaban, and all! As always, alert me to any typos. Please let me know you still love me, even though I haven't posted in a really long time.

Right, testing this Sunday evening update idea. This is still the rough draft of chapter eight. I'll edit and post on my website when I get home, and have a chance to check what I've written against my copy of PoA.
