Name is Do Re Me 123
Helen's Hero: Finished! Like with GD, some chapters were definitely better than others, but I will always have a soft spot for Helen's Hero, Anton/Aretha was such a flawed and hopeless character, I wish I hadn't rushed it, I wanted to develop her more, some things could have been added.
The Golden Devil: Finished, and like Helen's Hero it's uber depressing at the end, haha I'm a sucker for angst and bittersweet endings :D
This Doesn't Come With the Job: Totally on hiatus, comatose. I made my first 100 reviews EVER with this fic, though the hundredth review came nearly four full years after I stopped updating... I still celebrate it
Stand Still: I know this is a silly pun, but... its at a stand still.
Hogwarts Confidential: Harry Potter, NextGen fic. Madeline Devereux is from a family full of fabulous socialites, and she tries to break the mold by attending Hogwarts, not Beauxbatons, hoping that there she can just relax and be 'real', but Hogwarts isn't so easy. Every student is walking on egg shells because of the school gossip magazine, the Hogwarts Confidential. If you are having a bad hair day, they'll know and let everyone else know! But then something serious actually happens, forcing the NextGen to put shallow things aside for the sake of magic... yes, magic, magic itself is being threatened... On hiatus, sorry!
Somethings Are Regretable: Regulus Black enters his sixth year, a step closer to becoming a Death Eater, but he can't bring himself to celebrate. A friend is taken from him after she falls from grace in the pureblood society, it turns out that she is a half-blood. Regulus has to struggle between doing what is expected from him and doing what his heart desires. And there's his brother, who's always messing up his day... RB/oc/SB
Salazar's Salesmen: The Slytherin, Corvus Dante Blackstone runs a lucrative business smuggling in and selling contraband within Hogwarts. For him and his friends it's about making money and having fun. Then the Chamber of Secret is opened, and his group's on the verge of collapsing onto itself. But Slytherin's Heir is nothing compared to what Corvus has to deal with when the infamous Sirius Black escapes Azkaban... (Some Things Are Regrettable is the prequel to this story)
Salazar's Encore: Sequel to Salazar's Salesmen. After a turbulent fourth year of scandalous revelations, Corvus Black returns to Hogwarts. Running the infamous group Salazar's Salesmen and avoiding Potter like the plague, he hardly notices something very sinister developing around him... set in GoF-OotP.
Salazar's Saints (possible alt. title: The Good Slytherins): This will be the final story about Corvus and the Salesmen, set during the Deathly Hallows. I haven't mapped this story out enough to give you teasers, but I imagined it will be the darkest and perhaps the shortest in the series.
REWRITES TO SALAZAR'S ENCORE
Okay so, I went through rewriting chapters 14-20, because a.) I wanted to procrastinate, I have to complete a huge project this month, b.) something in those chapters bummed me out, I felt I didn't do well/they were shabby and c.) I really really wanted to procrastinate.
So here are the major (ish) changes I did in each chapter.
Impending Change: general tweaking of things... tightened up the scene between Daphne and Corvus about Max hating her.
Breises Stirling: I can't really remember what I changed… must not have been much... I made it so Corvus got a ton more birthday gifts... I went through Max's lines because of previous re-reads, I felt I had him say 'or what' way too much.
Belated Birthday: Reworked the scene where the Salesmen watch people submit their names to the Goblet of Fire it might be barely noticeable. But trust me it's better now haha... I changed quite a bit in the part where Lee and Sirius tell Corvus about Metis, etc. To make things clearer, information wise. Also how Corvus feels towards Sirius during that moment.
Potter Sucks: Rewrote a scene so Pretzel and Corvus speak briefly… Included more Slytherin reaction to Potter's name being chosen by the Goblet of Fire... Extended the part where Corvus speaks to Harry and Hermione at the owlry... Included a Pretzel Prank! Preformed by Daphne!... I had Max and Corvus discuss the possible return of Voldy in this chapter, rather than in the later chapters like I had before... Moody & Corv's conversation changes here n there
Dueling Man: possibly my favorite rewrite! It's a real Daphne chapter now
Stirling's Final Justice: Major rewrites. Made Ascanius's death a bigger deal... Corvus and Draco even discuss it a bit, slight family bonding there...I put everything First Task related in this chapter – consolidating!
Dance Fever: I combined two previous chapters into one monster chapter! There really wasn't any need for two chapters… I could probably cut this chapter down even more but I'm letting it go. So everything leading up to the Yule Ball is in this chappy
