The cover art for my stories, Audacious Passion, The Insidious Love Seat, and May I Take Your Order? have been done by the amazing and talented Sakura Martinez! She's amazing and all credit goes to her :D
My Current Stories:
A Friendship Between a Kat and a Thief (Heist Society Books): I feel I might write one or two more chapters before wrapping this story up since my focus is on other writing.
Audacious Passion (Harry Potter): So Arianna Epiphany Knowlden does not belong to me. She belongs solely to Official Scroll Keeper who has so kindly let me borrow her. This story has been...well a whirlwind. I feel like a very different writer than I was many months ago, and I honestly don't want to finish the story anymore. I've gotten bored with the story line and frankly it's just become a bit too tedious. When I look at the story I'm not even particularly happy or proud of it. I've been seriously considering deleting this story because it's been so long since I've updated and there are other things that I want to pursue. But at the same time I really do want to finish the story. But I want to finish it so I can say that it's done. Plus there's quite a few people following the story and it seems terrible to axe it when so many are left hanging like that. That was never my intention and I apologize for those that are waiting on an update.
My Completed Stories:
The Insidious Love Seat (Harry Potter): This is my favorite story that I've ever published on FF. I just really loved the idea of the loveseat and I had so much fun writing all of the chapters with each of the couples.
Our Dangerous Demigod Story (Percy Jackson Series): So I've labeled this story 'complete' even though I never properly finished the story. It wasn't going anywhere anyways, and I didn't feel guilty about ending it quickly since practically no one was reading it.
May I Take Your Order (Harry Potter): Complete! I probably won't be doing any new FF stories, but if I do I'll probably publish another Rose and Scorpius story since I completely love them.
When a Kat Tried to Steal a Monet (Heist Society): My first story ever that was my take on the prompt of what happened the night Kat and Hale first met. It was just something to get me warmed up for my whole FF career I guess. Just something quick and easy. Now looking back on it, I really dislike it, but that's normal and it's nice to know the support I got from my first one-shots.
A Present for Kitty Kat (Heist Society): Just a quick little one-shot for one of my favorite fandoms. This was sort of the first start to the idea of A Friendship between a Kat and a Thief. Not to mention I was eagerly awaiting Christmas even though it was summer at the time I wrote the one-shot.
Test Marks (Harry Potter): A cute little one-shot of my OTP pairing, Rose and Scorpius coming back from potions class. I was experimenting with a different sort of writing style when I wrote this so I hope you like it!
Kerosene (Harry Potter): Another short little story about Rose and Scorpius. This is a little more angst-y than my other one-shot of the pair, but I still really like it. The story started with the steamy kiss scene and the rest followed after. Once again I was experimenting with a more descriptive style of writing, so I hope you like it!
Hopefully this will give you a bit more info about what I'm planning to do with all of my stories. :)
If it seems that I'm taking too long in between updates or even getting back to you through PM messages it's probably because my first priority is my Fiction Press account since I'm working on my newest story "Tug of War".
Tug of War excerpt:
Almost immediately I crashed into something hard.
And that's when I realized that the hard wall was actually sort of fleshy. Stepping back, I noticed that the person I had bumped into was wearing a simple white v-neck shirt and jeans.
My eyes traveled higher to see a strong jaw line, and soft lips. His nose was slightly crooked and a pair of beautiful brown eyes regarded me intensely. His dark brown hair fell into his eyes messily. He looked like he was around my age.
In Nikki's words: Day-um.
"Are you all right?" he asked while I practically swooned. Even his voice was a sexy, deep sort of rumble. I almost blushed at his words but I caught myself in time before I acted completely foolish.
Meanwhile he was giving me a thorough once over—his brown eyes lingering on my bare legs, torn shorts, and slightly damp hair (luckily the warm summer night had erased most of the evidence of my dip in the pool). And then his eyes met mine, and I instinctively straightened under his heavy gaze.
"Yeah, sorry about that," I replied stepping away from him. I examined the stranger once more, when I suddenly remembered the time.
I mean someone had to be awfully suspicious if they were hanging around a Laundromat at 1:30 in the morning. Seriously, who does laundry at this hour?
It was all very strange if you ask me.
For all I know he could be the axe wielding murderer I was talking about earlier except he uses his good looks and charm to kidnap poor defenseless girls.
Oh god...I was going to be his next victim.
"What are you doing here?" I blurted out, vaguely wondering if I could outrun this guy if I had too. I also gripped my phone tighter...just in case.
The murderer looked amused, if anything, "I could ask you the same thing. Who goes to the Laundromat without any laundry?"
I blushed and actually told him the truth, "I'm meeting some friends here..."
"Ah, I see," he replied, smiling now. God, it should be a crime for someone to look that cute. "Are you guys going to have a laundry party?"
"Oh yeah, it's going to great. You know: soap, dirty clothes, softener, washing machines... It's going to be the party of the century," I replied sarcastically.
The guy actually chuckled, "Too bad I couldn't be there."
I gave a wry smile before saying truthfully, "It might be better this way. For all I know you could be a murderer."
I vaguely wondered if being honest would help me if this mysterious guy really was a murderer, but I didn't really get a creepy vibe from him. As weird as it sounds I wasn't all that afraid of the guy.
The guy just looked amused, "I could be... You never know..."
He gave me a sexy little smirk before stepping around me, and gave me a two-fingered salute as he walked away from me. I was still standing at the entrance as I watched him walk towards the street and disappear around the corner.
And that's all :P. If you're curious you can read the rest at FictionPress under my username: AMessofPickles.
Thanks for reading!
