Unnamed Harry Potter Fan Fiction

The minutes ticked away on the clock somewhere.  It couldn’t be located, but it was loud, as if it were right next to her ears.  It was belittling, no, not the clock, but it’s meaning.  The time faded behind her and she sat disgraced in the hall before two great doors awaiting acceptance.  She cursed her parents for sending her away.  Why?  Why not hire someone to finish her education at home where there wasn’t a stench of mud blood in the air.  The scent was nauseating. 

Nalley Brass ran a thin, pale hand through her charcoal colored mane.  What year would she be considered?  Fourth?  Fifth?  Who knew?  Technically she could have completed her seventh year alas her parents were persistent shoveling her into the hands of uncooperative teachers and a quack of a headmaster.

The doors opened and her thoughts ceased.  She walked gracefully through the doors, her black cloak flowing behind her.  Her strides were long, as her legs were.  Nalley neared five foot eight inches in height.  She was long and slender in the face with a nose that came to a curved point.  Her eyes were almond shaped, small, but behind the lids were eccentric green orbs that nearly glowed.  A fan of thick, black lashed curled at the end of her lids.  Her lips were full considering how small her mouth was.

He watched her carefully for a moment. She was trembling. "Hold still." He moved close enough to place a hand on the right side of her neck. The closer she moved the wider her eyes grew until she could feel his breath against her lips. Her chest rose and fell rapidly; he felt her heart beat. He leaned down and her eyes fluttered, closing slowly. Her lips puckered. When he didn't meet her lips and she felt his head on her shoulder, his hot breath on her neck, she blushed, feeling very immature. "You smell deletable..."

"I do?"

He drew in a long breath and sighed, "Yes, like everything I've been deprived of for decades." He moved his face from her neck, but left his hand on her neck, "Thank you."

She swallowed hard and narrowed her eyes curiously, "Decades?"

He ran his free hand through his hair, "Might be centuries...time goes too fast."

"Oh my. That's..." She trailed off and bit the inside of her lip, chewing gently enough not to break skin.

He stepped back. He circled her, a hawk stalking its prey. He stopped with her back to him.
"You're an interesting creature."

"I am?" She turned, but he turned her back around.

"Do I entice you?"

"Often." He placed his cheek on her shoulder and breathed hot and heavy.

"Do I frighten you?" His voice was low and rough as if he growled his words.

"Yes..." Her chest rose and fell with her rapid breathing. Her heart beat out of control.

A rumble of a laugh rose from deep within his chest and she stepped back, "You're so human!" He exclaimed.

Her eyes narrowed in both confusion and frustration. "What do you mean 'I'm so human'?" She stopped her foot and crossed her arms.

"You're so fragile." He cooed, as he caressed her cheek, his eyes watching his fingers.

"Humans are fragile?"

"You die so easy." He placed his hand back on her neck. "One flick of my wrist and you are dead."

Turn tried to step away again, but he gripped her neck tight enough to keep her from moving, but gentle enough not to choke her. "Let go of me!" She struggled under his grasp. Pulling his hand back, she fell into the dirt. A small cry escaped her lips. When she lifted her hand she noticed a piece of glass. He was beside her in a second. He cradled her hand like a baby bird. The fear in her eyes excited him. He raised her hand to his mouth, gripped the glass with his teeth and ripped it from her hand. Another cry came from her lips as the wound opened more. Her palm was at his mouth. The scent of her blood tingles his nostrils. He ran his tongue over the wound slowly. A tremor rolled through his body and he pushed her hand against his mouth drawing her essence from her.

Springboard

“Tell me something strange.”

“I don’t like artificial cherry.”

She giggled and laid her head on his shoulder. “That’s not strange.”

“The strange part is, I like cherries.” He put his arm around her and ran his fingers through her dark auburn hair.

“That’s not so strange either.”

Springboard

She opened her car down and heard another slam. Looking up she saw the white truck of her best friend with him standing next to it. His back was erect. His emotions were guarded behind hard eyes, but there was no doubt he’d been crying. His eyes were read. Her eyes were the same. Red, bloodshot. She’d cried herself to sleep and now had puffy, black circles too.

“You look like hell.” His words stung. He meant to hurt her. He was angry. She knew it.

She coughed to clear her throat and began to say something when we swiftly walked over to her and pulled her into a tight hug. One hand slid through her hair holding her head to his chest and another on the small of her back. His nose was in her hair as if trying to hold her scent in forever. She choked back tears and grasped his shirt at his chest holding on tightly.

“Don’t leave.” He mumbled in her hair. She felt tears on her scalp and knew he’d started crying again.

Review: I hadn't heard of this movie until I watched The Time Traveler's Wife, but now I am glad I did. This movie was outstanding. The story line was a little cliche and the way the characters acted (not the actors) was a little unrealistic, but the acting was phenominal, which made it all the better. I don't think they could have chosen better actors for this film.

Review: I watched three movies in the last 24 hours and this was the best of the three. This movie was cute and worth nearly paying a late fee to watch. It made me cry at some points. If you have kids, it's worth watching, though it's very predictible for older people.

Review
: I rated this movie a 3, but it should be a 3.5. It's really only this low because of two things. This beginning of the movie started out very dull. Movies have to be entertaining from the beginning to attract my attention. Secondly, this girl drives. She looks like she's no more than 14-years-old, but drive alone which I'm assuming means shes near 17-years-old. I'd be a little more into this movie if they said her age.

Review
: This may be biased of me, but I don't like this movie for two big things and several small things.  I'm not very big on pot and alcohol and the fact that it's littered throughout the movie is annoying.  I'm also not a very big fan of Kristin Stewart, though she plays a good pothead (she doesn't play a good anything else).  The plot of the movie is pretty dull and though it's suppose to be a Comedy I didn't find anything humorous about it.

Cookie Sheet Meat Pie

I muffed up in the kitchen and got pie crust when I didn't need it so I concocted a new recipe.

Cookie Sheet Meat Pie

1 pound ground meat (I used deer meat, but you can use hamburger)
Hot Sauce (to taste)
Lawry's Seasoning Salt
Onions or Dried Onion
Garlic or Garlic Salt
Hot Mustard (to taste)
Shredded Cheese
2 pie crust

Heat the oven to 325. Brown the meat. While browning the meat add hot sauce, seasoning salt, onions, garlic and hot mustard. Lay one pie crust on a cookie sheet. Put a thin layer of hot sauce on the pie crust and sprinkle cheese to your liking. Put the meat in the middle. Add another layer of cheese and hot sauce and place the other pie crust on top. Seal the edges with a fork and make slices in the top. Cook for 20 to 25 minutes.

Mine seemed a little dry when I got to eating it (approx. 4 hours later) so I dipped it in ketchup and it tasted great, but just out of the oven warm it's delicious.

Darkness: Part Two

Here’s another rough, rough draft from the Into the Darkness mini-series. This mini-series is going to be like the kind you read in newspapers or magazines where the publish the next chapter every week or something. I’m going to try and get mine posted about every other day or everyday, but 40 hours of work in 4 days and 12 hours of classes one other day kind of conflict with that and sleep. This is part two, please flame and criticize and while you do that I’m going to edit part one with the edits you guys sent in. Please and Thanks!

Thank you rephenfor helping me out with some updates.  Please read and review the updated version (which has only gone through the first revision).  I like flames and criticism. 

Darkness: Part One

It has come to my attention that I'm not writing as much as I should anymore, so here's the plan.  I'm going to write.  Woot.  Yeah, I guess that should have been the plan in the first place.  I'm going to write whatever comes to my mind, 500 words a day.  I need to get my creative juices flowing.  This scribe was originally suppose to be vampire oriented, but I got the idea to do a Mythological Scribe and I just couldn't let it go.  Beware: This is the very, very rough draft.  Please critique appropriately and I do take flames and criticism well.  I like flames and criticism.

A clip from my second novel

This scene has been stirring in my head for a while and I thought I would just go ahead and write it. I wrote it differently than it appeared in my head, which is what normally happens, but its here. I thought I would go ahead and post. This is about 1/4 of the way through my novel when this happens. Even though I'm still on chapter one, I've come to the conclusion that if I write scenes that come to me now that it will be easier to write the inbetweens later.

take a peak...Collapse )
