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.

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!

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.

As always, banner takes you to story home page and the link will take your directly to the chapter.
