I've been thinking about this story since DH was published, and tonight I thought I would have a run at the prologue. It's a dark Ron/Hermione post-war fic involving secrets, infidelity and a number of complicated pairings, both past and present. In some ways, it is a continuation of my AU stories, The Power of Two and The Night Before, and in others it is rooted in the events of DH. I leave you to discover which for yourselves.

Excerpt:
His wife's eyes were bloodshot from weeping, but dry now, and her voice was steady when she spoke in tones of disbelief. "Grateful?! He took our child! Your son! How can you speak of gratitude when you know full well --"

"All I know," he cut her off, "is that if I serve well and faithfully, the boy need not fear for his life. As I have every intention of doing so, I do not see why you cannot let the matter rest."

This is also the first time I have written a completely different take on a scenario I had written before (in this case, Ron and Hermione's first time).

Excerpt:
"Hermione," he murmured, voice rough with a despair that wrenched at her heart.

She tried to say his name, but her throat was torn and swollen from screaming. Muscles trembling with effort, she she squeezed his fingers in response.

"I thought you were dead, Peter."

Peter. She was the only one who ever called him that anymore. The others all followed the Dark Lord's lead, rubbing his schoolboy nickname in his face, a constant reminder of the friends he had betrayed.

Excerpt:
They moved with a grace neither had suspected the other possessed. Truth be told, neither of them had ever given the other much thought before now. They were too different. Male and female, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw, blood-conscious and open-minded, but here and now they had at last found some common ground.

They circled one another, blades ringing together then sweeping apart again. Her movements made him think of a dancer. She was effortless -- instinctive -- and he found himself envying her. His own muscles ached from their long hours of practice, but if she felt any pain, she hid it well. Her face wore only its usual expression of detached serenity. She might have been dancing with her own shadow.

(You Can Still Get Married)
pica_scribit: Pica Pica (Gryffindor - JP/LE PP HP - Secret Keeper)
Tonight, I've been working on There is a War, my story about how James and Lily got together. I posted parts one and two on my webpage a while back, and tonight I've written seven pages of part three, which amount to three short scenes. There's still a lot to do, but I think I am done for tonight. I wouldn't normally do this, but I'm so pleased with how well it's going that I thought I would post the first little scene as a teaser for the section, so here it is. Incidentally, I named James's parents after my sister and her boyfriend.

I spent the last couple days re-working Lily's Tale for [livejournal.com profile] violet_quill's Voices and Vaginas of HP Women challenge (inspired by the Vagina Monologues). it was such a fabulous idea, and there were so many amazing fics submitted already, that I just had to participate. I don't really have time, though, to write something entirely new, especially when I have two long fics I really should finish first, so instead, I took my one female-perspective story, and re-worked it to make it first person and present tense, as well as fixing some of the wording. So, without further ado....

Secret Keeper )
pica_scribit: Pica Pica (Gryffindor - JP/LE PP HP - Secret Keeper)
Title: Secret Keepers: Wormtail's Tale
Rating: PG-13 for language and implied sex
Genre: Drama/Angst
Pairing: Peter/Bellatrix, James/Lily, Remus/Sirius (implied)
Summary: How Peter went over to the dark side, and how it all went wrong.
Related Fics: On my webpage.
Disclaimer: These guys aren't mine. But you knew that. Don't sue me.
A/N: I think I probably like this story the least of anything I've written. Probably because I have very little sympathy for Peter, and because I can't imagine ever doing what he did, so it's very hard for me to find the logic in his actions and write them in a way that they make sense. I do think it worked in the end, but I just feel like there's something flat about the story. I did enjoy writing Bellatrix and Voldemort, though.

Feedback, please! Let me know if you think this story works or doesn't, and why!

It's done! Go read it!

Title: Secret Keepers: Wormtail's Tale
Section Rating: PG-13 for language
Genre: Angst/Drama
Pairing: James/Lily, Remus/Sirius, Peter/Bellatrix (all implied)
Summary: The dinner party, the Fidelius Charm, a chat with Voldie.
Previous Section: On my webpage.
Disclaimer: These guys aren't mine. But you knew that. Don't sue me.
A/N: I think this story is about 2/3 done. Or maybe even 3/4. I guess Peter will let me know when his story has been told, and I think it's best to just let him have his say. This is probably the furthest from canon I have yet strayed. I know that, if this had actually happened, Peter would have mentioned it in his defense in the Shrieking Shack. I hope you enjoy it anyway.

Comments, praise and criticism are all ever so welcome!
