Calling All (Fan)Artists

Hola my darlings! I do have a new chapter of The Dark Arts for you, as promised. However, there’s something I need to do before I get to all of that.

As I mentioned before MissRissa and I are working on a couple pretty involved stories. Well, I actually started one over the last week. We thought it might be fun to do something different for a change, so that’s where you come in.

We’re looking for a fanartist willing to illustrate our new fic. :) There are logistics to be worked out, but I’m hoping that by starting the search early, we won’t have to rush whoever we find.

So reblog, pass the message, shout it from the metaphorical rooftops-if you (or anyone) is interested and wants more info, just shoot me an email to kelpieskorner@gmail.com.

Whew! Okay, that’s done. And now onto the new chapter for you!

Fair warning, there’s no visuals. I know it actually doesn’t bother many, if any, of you but I am weirdly OCD and love visuals in my stories. (Uh, hello?!? The beginning of this post??) So I figured I’d warn you.

And another fair warning, chapter 5 is NOT done yet. That’s an extremely trying chapter to write and it’s taking longer than I would like. But I’m plugging away. But I also can’t really give you a definite time that I’ll post. Sorry. I’m working on some other small stuff, one shots and such, as well as our new epic. But Dark Arts is still up high on my priority list.

So, without further ado, here is the newest chapter of The Dark Arts. As always the banner will take you to the story home page and the link will take you directly to the new stuff.

The Dark Arts // Chapter 4

Enjoy lovelies! And spread the word!!!

Baaaaaaad Kelpie…

So I may have had this chapter ready for a couple weeks…

No! No, don’t leeeeeeeave!!!

Oh good! You stayed!

So yeah, I had this done for awhile, though in my defense I did believe I’d already posted it. I have no idea why. Probably because I also have chapter 4 done as well….

…also in my defense, MissRissa and I fleshed out this story to the end so as long as I have *time* to write, it shouldn’t be quite so long between chapters. Plus we also have 2 brand new stories in the works which are already ridiculously fleshed out to the point where I have half the damn things written in my head.

Yeah. We’re cool like that. ;)

So, here is the next chapter of Dark Arts. Before I let you go, remember this is unbeta’d and dealing with a dark subject matter. So it can be trigger-y. Consider yourself warned. And now…

Banner goes to the home page and link goes to the chapter. Like I really need to tell y’all anymore. :)

The Dark Arts // Chapter 3

I’ll have chapter 4 up sometime late this week or early next week. Hope you enjoy lovelies!

Little Red Envelope

Yup. Here is the first of the drabbles for Obvious Denial. Can you tell what it’s about??

;)

Anyhoo, currently there are three more docs sitting in my drive that are going to turn into drabbles at some point. You can thank MissRissa for encouraging this.

You can also thank her for the idea for this drabble. I spit it out in about 20 minutes one night while we were chatting. I’ve read through it, but it’s not beta’d so forgive any glaring mistakes.

As always, banner to the story home page and link to go to the chapter…er, drabble. :)

Obvious Denial // The Howler

So, happy Tuesday (almost Wednesday, sorry!) and hope you enjoy!

Not a Fail

So I actually managed to deliver! I have the promised, and apparently much anticipated, Chapter 2 of Obvious Denial.

It’s amazing, I know.

Plus, this chapter has smut.

Now, fair warning. I haven’t written smut in…forever. Like yeah I really don’t remember the last time I tried and good fucking god was it uncomfortable!

So hopefully it doesn’t suck. And I would’ve had this out to y’all yesterday, but Fred and Hermione threw me a curve ball and I had to add it. They blindsided me, though it was perfectly fine once I got it written.

Y’all also should thank MissRissa81 because she got my wheels churning and there are now a few drabbles that are going to be coming your way. So, technically this story is complete, but know there could be a few more snippets here and there. (Like, maybe I dunno, Tuesdayish??)

So, I’ll quit yapping and just send this your way. Banner goes to story homepage, link takes you to the new chapter.

Obvious Denial // Chapter 2

Enjoy lovelies!

Fail

Yeah, that’s me. Total fail.

I promise I’ll try to do better. And besides, my phone is running out of space from all the hotness I’ve hoarded.

I’m not even gonna try to excuse it. I’ll just have to get a bigger phone. Or start up the hotness posts. :D

So that’ll be on my agenda to do. It may be patchy, but I’ll work on it. But, for now, I’ve got a new two shot for you. It’s a Fremione pairing (or Fred Weasley/Hermione Granger, for those of you who don’t know) because, let’s face it. Jo could’ve taken ANY OTHER WEASLEY and it would’ve been better than Fred. Well, except George of course, but you get my point.

I have the first chapter up and as soon as I finish the second (and end) it’ll go up. I’m still chugging away at Dark Arts, but this was a nice little break from the…darkness. So yeah.

And without further ado, I give you…

Obvious Denial!

Obvious Denial // Chapter 1

We go dark

Hola lovelies!

For all my Captain Swan and Trubies….sorry. This ain’t for you. I do however have a new chapter of my first attempt at an HP Dramione fic. :)

Now-there’s a reason the title is Dark Arts. This chapters reeeeeeeeally gets dark. So trigger warnings abound. As MissRissa says, it’s heartbreaking. But also completely necessary.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Big blocks of italics are flashbacks. I refuse to do pop culture research for the 90’s to get references correct, so either ignore the discrepancy or pretend it’s a modern fic.

Uh, there was more I was gonna tell you…

The pictures of her tattoos, aren’t correct placement wise usually, but hopefully I’ve describe it enough so you can picture it in your head.

Um…I think that’s everything. …..Maybe. Ah hell I dunno. If I have more to say I’ll do it later. For now, here ya go.

The Dark Arts // Chapter 2

What the hell

Yeah, what the hell. Here’s another chapter for you guys.

And before I say anything else, I need to rectify a mistake in my last post. It was so late and I’ve been so tired that it completely slipped my mind.

A huge thank you to the two most awesome people in the world! MistressJessica and MissRissa! Without MistressJessica, you’d have a much harder time reading my drivel. And without MissRissa, well…this story might never have been continued. She contributes just as much to this story as I do, probably more. I just have the pleasure of taking what she tells me and putting it into some semblance of readable ish.

And now, onto the new shit. This chapter is one of MissRissa’s favorites and you’ll see why.

First of all, the thing that’s being freaked out over is something that happened in my house. Indeed, the picture accompanying it is an actual picture of mine. So, think of that and yuk it up while you read.

Oh and Zoe’s…interpretation…is direct from my middle kidlet’s mouth. I kid you not.

Again, Claudette is a fictionalized version of me. Snark and sarcasm and all.

Uh, let’s see…what else was I going to say? (Like y’all can really answer *rolls eyes*)

The thing about the fireworks is me as well. The story will eventually come out in an outtake. Just in case you’re left wondering.

I just love Thomas. He might be one of my favorite characters to write. He’s just….goofy and endearing.

And I think maybe that’s all I wanted to say. There’s a few outtakes coming your way soon, so hopefully this will hold you over until then.

Oh one more thing (sorry!). I’m really getting into a new ship – Dramione (Draco/Hermione from Harry Potter) – and I’ve been steadily devouring all the fics I can find. If y’all have any recs, let me know. But anyways, I’m attempting to write a Dramione fic. *wrinkles nose* I’ll post it when it’s done if y’all are interested. :)

And now I’ll stop rambling.

As always, the banner takes you to the story homepage and the link will take you to the chapter.
