pica_scribit: Pica Pica (Gryffindor - FW & GW - tPoT)
For those of you who don't know, I started writing this story over three years ago. I most sincerely apologise for how long it has taken me to get to the end of it. I am finishing it today as a birthday present to my betrothed, the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] chiv, who has been pestering me to get it done for almost as long as we have been together.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, [livejournal.com profile] chiv!

I've drawn threads from a lot of my other fics into the last few chapters, but I hope it all makes sense. The epilogue especially ended up having a lot more to do with Harry and Remus than the Weasley twins, but it's fanfic, and I go where it takes me. If it was an original story for publication, I might have been more vigilant about the focus. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the results.

I guess it's about time I had another look at my pre-Deathly Hallows theories, and found out how many I got right. Shall we see how I did?

Many DH SPOILERS follow.... )

Hmmm...looks like I got quite a lot wrong, but at the same time, did not do too badly either. Go me!

This story is AU, diverging from canon after OotP. You will find no horcruxes here. Feedback is my drug of choice. As usual, please report any errors or inconsistencies.


Excerpt:
"It doesn't look like much," he said skeptically.

"It isn't," said Fred with a grin. "That's the beauty of it, isn't it? They'll never see it coming. I can almost see the Prophet headline now. 'You-Know-Who Defeated by Joke-Shop Wand'."

Excerpt:
It was Snape himself who replied. "I would not say that he 'trusted' me as his Secret-Keeper, but he has given me that dubious honour."

"And you're here to share it with us, is that right?" Moody scoffed. "We're meant to believe you're not just sending us off to an ambush like dimwitted sheep?"

Snape looked Moody right in his magical eye. "You'll have your proof. My information is good."

"What proof can you offer?"

"My life," Snape spat bitterly.

The Weasley twins just walked off with my scene. And Remus and Sirius brought it back. I love it when the characters practically write themselves. If they can surprise *me* I must be doing something right!

Edit: Either I'm really tired or this is going really well. I should be asleep, but I want to finish this tonight.
pica_scribit: Pica Pica (Gryffindor - FW & GW - tPoT)
I was really expecting this chapter to be about Dumbledore's Army, but I can see that it's not quite time for that yet. Instead, we're off to the Little Hangleton graveyard (beware: original character!)....

([livejournal.com profile] chiv, do not read this yet!)

(Chapter 8: Eurydice)
pica_scribit: Pica Pica (Gryffindor - FW & GW - tPoT)
After re-reading GoF, I've added this section to Chapter Seven of The Power of Two, where the twins, the trio and Ginny are searching the Forbidden Forest for yew branches. This exchange goes at the end of that scene.

Edit: [livejournal.com profile] chiv, don't you dare read this until you are done listening to Goblet of Fire!

The Yew Tree )
pica_scribit: Pica Pica (Gryffindor - FW & GW - tPoT)
Right. I've got the first scene of chapter 7 written now. The twins go to meet with Ollivander about their proposed plan. Ollivander is as bloody difficult to write as Dumbledore! The pointing out of typos is appreciated. Anyway....


Wands )

EDIT: looks like I've finished chapter seven after all )
pica_scribit: Pica Pica (Gryffindor - FW & GW - tPoT)
Erm...is anyone even reading this? I've had no comments on the last two chapters I've posted. I feel like I'm talking to the wall. Please let me know if this is any good. Hell, let me know if it's bloody awful and people are just being too nice to say so. Anyway, here's chapter six, which is quite short, but may be longer later. I should be asleep now.

Chapter Six )
pica_scribit: Pica Pica (Gryffindor - FW & GW - tPoT)
Working a little more on my Weasley twin story. Weirdly and unintentionally, this story is mostly being told from the various perspectives of people around the twins, rather than the twins themselves. Today I am in Dumbledore's head.

The Power of Two: Chapter Five
pica_scribit: Pica Pica (Gryffindor - FW & GW - tPoT)
Working on "The Power of Two", my post-OotP Weasley Twin story, in the two hours I have left at work. Posting as I write, since I am bored and haven't had so much as an e-mail all day. This story has stopped being grim and started being kind of funny, but that's the Weasley twins for you....

A Date at the Leaky Cauldron )
pica_scribit: Pica Pica (Gryffindor - FW & GW - tPoT)
I've written not quite a chapter of my Weasley twin fic, "The Power of Two" (formerly "Half Dead") today, but I am too tired to go on, and I always post here when I've got something new, so here it is:

The Power of Two


I *think* I know what's going to happen....
pica_scribit: Pica Pica (Gryffindor - FW & GW - tPoT)
There's more, and it's a little cheerier now, so you can be less afraid.

Half Dead
pica_scribit: Pica Pica (Gryffindor - FW & GW - tPoT)
I've made a URL on my fanfic page for Half Dead, and I have posted everything I have written on that story so far, which now includes a scene involving my beloved muse, Remus. Also, I fixed a few typos.

Half Dead


I still feel like a terrible person for writing this at all....
pica_scribit: Pica Pica (Gryffindor - FW & GW - tPoT)
There's a special place in hell reserved for me, and I know it, thankyouverymuch. In penance, I shall say 16 "Hail Dumbledore's" and spend five sleepless nights writing fanfic in which good triumphs over evil.

And can I just say, feedback, please!, because I've posted the first bit in about eight places, and the lack of comments is deafening. I have to know that someone thinks or feels something about this piece.

A plot bunny chewed my head off, so I am sorry but this isn't the Survivor's Guilt update it should be. This is something new. It's post OotP, Weasley twin-centric, and there is character death, so be warned and please do not kill me. This is only the beginning....
