Lost In Your Arms - COMPLETE

Title: Lost In Your Arms (Tales of the Special Branch series, book 1 of 3)
Author: Femmequixotic
Final Word Count: 257,686
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: Oh so fucking NC-17, babes. Like 60K of his has to be sex. I mean it.
Characters: Draco Malfoy, Pansy Parkinson, Harry Potter, Blaise Zabini
Summary:  Three months after their brief encounter, Draco has almost forgotten about Potter–or so he tells himself. Then a Dark wizard shows up on the Auror radar and all hell breaks loose. Draco will have to choose between everything he holds dear–everything he’s worked so hard for–and a few stolen moments of passion with a certain green-eyed Inspector, once his sworn enemy and now something rather different entirely. He’ll make the right choice, won’t he? Who is he kidding? He’ll ruin everything, as per usual. Bad choices and the name Malfoy go hand in hand. (Prequel is here, ~15K.)


Well, folks, here it is. I’ve just posted the very last chapter of Lost In Your Arms, all 44K of it, and the novel’s now marked complete. You can read chapter ten here or (for those of you who I know were waiting until it was no longer a WIP) start from chapter one.

At 257,686 words, this story is officially longer than Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix which clocks in at 257,045 words and is the longest book in the HP series. (So you can’t say this fic’s too long to read–you’ve all read that book, I know, LOL. *side eyes everyone*) I really can’t believe it turned out this long; when I first planned it, I thought it might be 120K at most. Shows you how much I know. GOD HELP ME I STILL HAVE TWO MORE BOOKS TO WRITE IN THIS SERIES. WTF.  I HAVE OUT JKR’ED JKR WHEN IT COMES TO WORD COUNT. IN 10 WEEKS. I CAN’T EVEN. *breathes into paper bag*

ANYHOO.

This has been a wild ride for the past ten weeks. There were times I wasn’t certain I’d make my weekly deadline, but I did, and I have to give huge thank yous to @noeeon and sassy_cissa for being there with me on this journey and providing advice, sympathy, prodding, plotting, and editing along the way. They are my rocks, and this story wouldn’t have been finished without them.

I also want to say thank you to those of you who’ve been reading along with me. Your love of this story and your wonderful, beautiful, amazing comments have sustained and supported me along the way, and I can’t tell you how incredibly happy each one of you has made me. Your thoughtfulness and insight kept me going during difficult writing moments and influenced this story more than you might think. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for coming along on this ride with me. I hope you’ll join me on the next one. I’m throwing myself into starting chapter one of book two tomorrow. \0/ After I go drink a lot of wine tonight. Because DAMN GIRL that’s a lot of words for 10 weeks.

Which reminds me. LIYA is only book one of three planned for this series. I know. I’ve obviously gone round the twist. But I love these boys and I love Pansy and I love Blaise, and it’s making me wicked happy to write their stories. This is the team of my heart. More than I can even articulate. I fell back in love with them all writing this story, and I plan to be here with them for a little wihle longer.

The next installment will start posting on Saturday, June 3. You can follow me here on Tumblr for updates or subscribe to the series on AO3Let’s face it. It’ll probably be long too, lolz.

The dragon troll (open rp)

Galina huffed, puff of fire leaving her mouth as she did, looking over at the horizon as many dragons flew all around her. The mutant grew hungry after all the meat she ate in one day. She whistled as dragonmom quickly flew down, Galina jumping and landing on top of her lusus. She flew all around, looking down at the ground to see any animals to hunt.

She couldn’t see a single one until finally spotting a herd of buffalo. “Alright, mom. Blaze them up!” Her lusus flew down and quickly breathed out a blaze of fire onto the ground, burning all the buffalo in sight.

Galina let her lusus fly down low as she jumped off and pulled out her weapon. She began cutting up all the animals, gathering all the meat she could while looking around to make sure there was no other troll that might be ready to steal some. “Mom, be my lookout.” Her lusus lead out a roar that breathed out fire and flew around in a circle formation, looking down at the ground every once and a while.

Fic: One Step at a Time

Characters: Harry & Draco

Rating: G

Word Count: 2,521

Summary: Harry and Draco meet properly for the first time after the events of Godrics Hollow.  Cursed Child compliant. Love to @torestoreamends for betaing.


They’d no sooner spotted each other, than the boys started running. They met, paused for a moment, then leapt into each other’s arms, laughing and trying not to lose their balance and topple over as they hugged.

Draco glanced at Potter–who ran a hand through his hair, looking bemused–then watched the boys stumble away over the cobblestones toward Flourish and Blotts. Scorpius vibrated with excitement, bouncing on his feet. No attempt at decorum, posture, or manners, just pure, unfettered enthusiasm. The Lucius in Draco’s head reminded him that this was yet another parenting failure, while Astoria… Well, there she was, shining through Scorpius in his unselfconscious joy at the things he loved. Reining Scorpius in would have meant erasing her from his movements, from his expressions, from his being.

Draco might not have a refined son, but he did have an increasingly happy son. A son who kept Astoria present in their lives.

The Potter boy smiled as Scorpius chattered. He grinned then said something to Scorpius that made him laugh. The way they looked at each other; Draco couldn’t get over it. They couldn’t seem to stop speaking, seemed drawn together like magnets.

I don’t think I was much of a hoarder. Since Dracor live in Family-Clans that would get pretty crowded. Sure we had our own little collections of things we treasured, but sometimes I wonder if it’s just because I was younger and not yet making my own Family-Clan that I didn’t “hoard” I don’t remember if my sire and dame had collections that you could call a hoard.

None the less this time around I do hoard things. Clocks, socks, blankets, books, and pipecleaners also random things that sparkle when I can get them. Every time I see certain shiney rocks/gems on my dash (which is becoming more frequent) however I’m struck with how much I want/need them. It made me realize I’ve always sorta scooped up attractive rocks and slip them into my pockets to later hide in my many small item storing spaces in my room. I’ve even swiped rocks from my brothers collection he never continued.
Bugger that, these sterotypes even fit hybrids like me…

One Dracor

“It’s called a Dracor.” the hand stilled, pencil graphite hovering just over the paper, beneath it the swooping, dancing lines that created a strange gamboling creature. Around it’s clever looking eyes scales ringed, hair curling below its ears in gentle tousles, which made it look as though it were flying into wind. Though the creatures wings were yet done being drawn. 
Dracor.” The single word repeated with an upward lilt. Drah-core.
Artists eyes raised from their downcast, away from the penciled life springing beneath hands. Something about how the speaker had said it…Eyes darting back down as the pencil started moving again. Allowing the creature’s wings to flourish and billow out against the imagined wing. 
“Yeah.” That’s all that was given in reply. What more could there be said when no question was asked? Instead the artist was joined at their table and a similar piece of paper was brought out and held up. The artist took it. On it was something so similar and yet different. The pencil work clumsy, yet seeming to know what it wanted. Scales, fur, a necklace at it’s throat it was jumping into the air. The thing on the paper was smaller than what the artist is drawing but the species is unmistakably the same. So few have heard of Dracor, and this was a perfect stranger. “How…”

“How did you hear about Dracor?” This was the one who joined the artist, her expression leaning on edge like her body. Elbows on the table, leaned forward. Eye fixed on the artist who again stills the pencil to look at her. She seems so expectant, hopeful but disappointed too. Preemptively disappointed. Can the truth be told? 
“I have always kinda known about them.” An easy out answer, a simple one. How can the artist tell this person I am one. But the speaker, her red tinted curling hair falling a bit into her face takes back the picture she had drawn. 
“What if I told you that I knew about them almost always too. I just did not know the name until later. What if I knew one.”

What does she mean by that? The artist is unsure and feels uncomfortable with this conversation. Is this girl poking fun? Then again she’s wearing fox ears and a collar. What does that mean. She speaks again, hesitant, her voice gone quiet with a sort of concern. “Have you heard of Otherkin?" 

Is she…
The artist gives her full attention now, fingers brushing over the picture beneath their fingers, spreading some of dust from eraser and crumbling gray graphite. "I have. I am." 
The girl across from the artist smiles softly. That let down expression of her-my-face, diminishes replaced with this barely concealed elation eyes glassy with tears she will not yet -and probably would not- shed. "You’re a Dracor?” There is that lilt in how she says it, a second time. Though not too strange. 

“I am a Dracor. Yes.” Was this for real, the artist is skeptical. So many others have impersonated ‘Kin that it’s hard to feel safe and that’s a shame. The artist does not participate much in the community, content in being who they are regardless. 
She touches the picture she’d taken out fondly, a loving look crosses her face, and she pulls out a pendant identical to that of the Dracor in the picture.  "This is me.“ She had barely said the words. Believing. "I’ve never met another one." 

"Now you have.” came the reply, and a matching small smile. How good does it feel to stop being alone, to know you’re not the only one anymore…

Pile of Characters!

Sourdough’s minions (at least, I think that’s who they are. Hard to tell from just their butts), Clipper, Something the So and So, General Outrage, Cashmere, Mandrake, Ryder, The Potted Plant (what’s he doing there? Eh, maybe the Watchdogs don’t like him so they put him in there), Lil’ Bits, Sourdough the Evil Sandwich, Dracor, General McGuffin, the Black Cube of Darkness, Kragthaaar, Demurra and of course, Hater

So I decided to make a post (NOT a follow forever) with some Arsenal blogs on it that are, in my opinion, worth following.

This is a mix of blogs I follow and popular blogs.

I hope you enjoy it and maybe find some new blogs to follow :)

Love, Elisabeth

Ps: if you find any mistakes in it (like urls I’ve written wrong or wrong links, just let me know! I’m sure I made a few mistakes :p)

Frustrating Answers to Well-Thought-Out Questions!

Reposting instead of reblogging…

Most Asked Questions about WoY S2
fanfic-inator795:

(at least for me, but I’m pretty sure most of the fandom is thinking/asking these as well. But yeah, guess who’s thinking about S2 again? Gahhhhh. Really hope it premieres in June or July. But anyways-)

10. Are any S1 characters (Brad, Westley, Doomstone guys, Dracor and Demurra and/or their babies, etc.) going to return in S2?

9. (Since it was confirmed in a tweet) How often will we see Emperor Awesome in S2? Will he only be in a couple episodes like S1, or will he become a sort of fifth member of the main cast?

8. What new planets/places will we see this season?

7. Will we get any character backstories or character history revealed?

6. (Also confirmed in a tweet) If we’re seeing more Zbornaks this season, does that mean we’re seeing Sylvia’s home planet? Will we see her family?

5. Will Wander and Hater ever have to team up in an episode (or perhaps several episodes) in order to defeat Lord Dominator? And will it simply be an reluctant alliance of convenience, or will Hater actually want to work together with the ‘good guys’? (I do remember somewhere one of the writer’s referring to them as ‘frenemies’ instead of just plain enemies, so does that mean something changes in this season?)

4. Because of working together, will this cause Wander and Hater to become closer and take a small step towards possibly and eventually becoming friends? Or will they just go back to their status quo relationship once they no longer need to work together? (I certainly hope that isn’t the case)

3. WHO IS DR. SCREWBALL JONES?! If he’s Wander’s ‘nemesis’, does that mean Wander actually hates someone, or is it onesided? Is Wander afraid of Screwball? How long have they been fighting/been nemeses? How dangerous is he? Is he magic or science based (since he is a doctor, after all)? So many questionsssssss!

2. Is Dominator possibly related to Hater, or is he just some guy? Also, does he have the same powers as Hater? And what is he like? Is he a very serious villain to sorta contrast with Hater and Peepers’ comically evil, or is he a different type of villain all together? Related to that-

1. WHAT DOES DOMINATOR LOOK LIKE?! WE’VE ONLY EVER SEEN HIS SHADOW AND HIS BACK! I’m starting to wonder if they’re just going to keep him in the shadows the entire season and wait until the finale to actually reveal him. But is he a skeleton like Hater, or do they just both have lightning bolt horns and that’s their only physical similarity?

Bonus Question: When is the musical episode because I for one can’t wait to see that episode (I love musical episodes ^v^ My guess is that it’ll be whatever episode is the Screwball episode. I mean, it was confirmed in a post on Craig’s blog that Weird Al’s singing a song in that epi, so if it turns out to be the musical episode, it wouldn’t surprise me)

———————————————————————————

10) Yes.  Wander, Sylvia, Hater, and Peepers will definitely be returning.  

9) More often than some people would like.

8) A lot!  Plus a couple of returns to places we’ve been before (Grop Save Cluckon).

7) Like “What factory was Destructor’s sock made in?”  You guys really wanna see that? Ok, I guess.

6) There’s a reason Sylvia hasn’t run into many Zbornaks so far on their adventures.  I’ll leave it at that.

5) Yes and no.  I’ll let you decide which answer goes with which.  

4) Wander will not rest until he befriends Hater.  That being said, Hater’s definitely a “Two steps forward, one step back” kinda guy. CONFLICT! COMEDY! EXCLAMATION POINTS!!!!

3) Weird Al Yankovic.

2) Can’t say…

1) …but you’ll know soon.

BONUS QUESTION: Dude, like half our episodes are musical episodes.

It’s going to be awesome, you guys.  Get ready.
