Due South

(no subject)

Kindly explain to me why it is that, as soon as I start NaNoWriMo, I get bombarded by fic ideas? Three in the last week.

Tonight, I thought of Petunia, Hallowe'en, Lily and Dia de los Muertos.

Earlier, it was Lily, James, Sirius, Baby!Harry and Dr. Suess.

Before that, Lily telling James she was pregnant.

And an idea I've had for awhile has started to float up to the top of my head again: Lily and Sirius after they'd made Peter the Secret Keeper.

Or the story of Jack finding the compass. Sort of. Except not.

But of course, I have even less time than normal to write all these ideas. Oh well. With any luck, these ideas will solidify so I can write them in December.

Right. Ha.

Drabble: Modern Witches

This was written for someone or another's first line meme. I printed out a list of a bunch of them awhile ago and am slowly working on it. I suspect it's the_dala but am not sure--and obviously, she wouldn't be writing for HP, which is what I changed it to. When I figure out who, exactly, the first line belongs to (which will probably be on the weekend) I'll tell you. 100 words exactly.

Modern Witches


She can manage this, she thinks, and she will.

Lily Potter is a modern women, after all. Rather, a modern witch. She can have it all. A career. A family. A loving husband. A baby.

And a war.

There is no need to sacrifice one for the others. Not anymore. They tell her she can have it all.

And she believes them.

Still, Lily places her hand over her belly, hesitantly, experimentally — she’s wants to see what it feels like — and Lily looks at the potion in front of her, just turned blue, telling her she’s pregnant.

And Lily wonders.
