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.

The Dark Arts // Chapter 2

I humbly come

…to beg your forgiveness.

Seriously, you need to forgive me.

I’ve slacked so very much on your hotness posts and I’m sorry. Although, in my defense, this has been a BUSY couple of weeks.

**Feel free to skip this to get to the actual ‘fanfic’ part of the post**
As many of you know, my oldest son has a condition (Prader-Willi Syndrome), so we’ve had 3-4 appointments for him in the last 3 weeks. My middle son has had his yearly physical and dentist visits. My daughter, thankfully hasn’t had any appointments, but now that I think about it, I’m sure I need to make her one. Can’t remember what for, but yeah.

Then there’s my appointments. Again, as many of you know since I’m not at all ashamed/afraid to talk abotu my issues, I’ve been struggling hard this past year with anxiety and depression. That’s why the huge dip in my writing. But I finally went to my doctor and started medication. That was back in October and I’m finally starting to feel better. So yay! Plus today I spent 6 hours and almost $3000 getting 6 crowns on my teeth. So yay for pretty teeth, but god damn dentists give me anxiety! (Bulimia and morning sickness have completely obliterated my enamel, don’t think I have like horrid oral hygiene!)

So that’s why I’ve been slacking.

**Fanfic part! You can read now!!**

I have also found a new ship to love, which is relevant, I promise. In all my years of reading and loving Harry Potter, I never delved into fanfic. Probably because I loved the books and had no desire to. Whatever. But someone back in January asked me about ‘Dramione’ and if I had any recs. Uh, no, since I hadn’t really ever heard of that ship.

Needless to say, that one little question has sent me (and MissRissa!!) down the rabbit hole into all things Dramione. Which is Draco and Hermione, for those who don’t know.

I’ll be happy to take any recs y’all have, by the way.

Which brings me to my next (and last, hopefully) point. I’ve started writing for Dramione. I can’t get them out of my head, so they may be front and center for a little while. Sorry to all my other fandoms!

This is the first attempt I’ve made at writing for them and I hope it’s not completely horrid. Feel free to tell me if it is.

Click the banner to go to the story homepage, of course. These chapters will be unbeta’d for now, since MistressJessica is super busy with her own life. Again, feel free to berate me about grammar or mistakes if you want. So, check it out, hopefully you like it and I’ll stop rambling now.

Enjoy lovelies!!
