And on the seventh day...

Oh, no, Tash isn't going to take the mickey for that subject line! Why would she?

So yesterday, I took my thumb out of my butt, and wrote more of the prologue of "Unbreakable Bond." Nice scene with Hermione and her parents, who owe a lot to both alloy_ and Amidala69, beginning of a scene that's going nowhere very quickly with Ron and his Dad. That last, I need to think about to give them an interesting enough dynamic to carry through a page or so of something they'd decided on with no room for a credible argument about two sentences in.

alloy_'s also infecting me with a desire to give Neville a bigger part in "NIS: Hogwarts," so that's something I'm thinking on, too. I think we're all going to be pretty proud of our Gryffindor crowd at the end of this one.

So I may be rolling back into gear again. I'm keeping my fingers crossed -- and boy, does that make typing difficult!

But, in Honor of your Icon, a preview of a scene from "Harry Potter and the Unbreakable Bond":

    Ron looked up from the small, official scroll in his hand. "So, Dad, I guess I should just go into work with you in the morning, Yeah?"

    Arthur Weasley nodded to his son. "Yes, I think that would be best."

    Ron stepped over to his father, looked down at the project he was working on on the small living-room coffee table. Spread out over the surface were parts of a muggle flashlight. Arthur glanced over at his son and smiled. "Extraordinary gadget, that." He pointed to a small glass ball with a metal threaded base. "Apparently, that actually lights up because a tiny wire inside it gets so hot it glows. And it doesn't burn up because there's no air in there. And those--" he pointed to two cylindrical objects about as long as Ron's thumb, but much thicker "--are supposed to store Eckletricity, just as if it were jam in the cupboard!"

    Ron was intrigued in spite of himself. "Have you ever opened one up? To see the Eckletricity?"

    Arthur blushed. "Don't tell your mother."

    Ron nodded understandingly. "Yeah. I guess it must be pretty dangerous. I mean, if two of those have enough Eckletricity to make a wire so hot it glows...."

    "Exactly." Arthur looked seriously at Ron, his gaze slipping down to the runnled scars on his arms. "So, I, er... I guess you come by it honestly enough."

    Ron stood a little straighter. "Is this where you give me a talking-to about taking foolish risks?"

    Arthur held his son's gaze for a moment. "No," he finally said. "I'll brave the wrath of Mollywobbles."

    "Oh, Merlin, Dad! I did eat today, you know!"

    Arthur chuckled at his son, then clasped a hand to his shoulder. "You stood by your friends, Ron. I can only ever be proud of that."

    Ron held his gaze for a moment, then hurrumphed and look back at the table. "So, what did it look like, then?"

    "I'm sorry?"

    "The Eckletricity. What did it look like?"

    "Well, that's the funny thing, Ron," said Arthur, rubbing the back of his head. "There wasn't any in there. Just some nasty wet slimy smelly dirty stuff, and a metal peg. Odd, that."

    Ron nodded, regarding the disassembled muggle device. "Yeah... Odd."

Thanks. Poor arthur's going to have a lot to deal with in this one.

Now why would I do that? *widens eyes innocently* Besides you're doing it wrong - its supposed to be 6:1 in a work:rest ratio, not the other way round...we have a rather lazy god among us here!

The 'Unbreakable Bond' excerpt is fantastic, though - ooh, can't wait! :D Especially for a scene with the Granger's - I'm always curious as to how people see them. Well, you've cheered me up now, thanks for that! Anticipation works wonders...

I may have the prologue ready to post today or tonight. I just have to do the "Harry" scene.
