Hey lovelies! So umm… I start my new job as the coordinator of youth and young adult ministry tomorrow. I’m super insanely nervous. I can’t concentrate. I’m also in a city and state that I’m unfamiliar with. Even with the gps I get lost because of all the one way streets. I also don’t do well with being alone. If I’m alone for too long I have panic attacks. I don’t really know anyone here and I’m already feeling anxious about it. It hasn’t even been 10 hours since I’ve been alone. Please keep me in your prayers. Thank you! Love you all!
Brandon is posting another prayer request? Yep. Why is Brandon speaking in third person? The world may never know.
I’m meeting with the director of campus ministry tomorrow at 1 PM to discuss the campus minister position. I know he had just met with his boss and HR to see if they could hire me because of my interesting situation, so please keep this in your prayers. It means so much to me. Thanks so much, fam! I love you all so much!
happy 20th birthday amanda!!!!! this is literally the first hinny (or golden trio era in general????) fic i’ve ever written so i hope i didn’t screw it up too badly! xox
It’s a Sunday.
Harry can’t remember the last time this mattered, the last time he had kept track of things like days or weeks or months, but now it does. It matters because Mrs Weasley is cooking a giant roast dinner and it smells delicious, and because Mr Weasley managed to get time off of work, despite the current chaotic state of the Ministry, and because tomorrow is Monday which means another week, slightly further away from all the destruction. It matters because last night was the first decent night’s sleep Harry has had since he can remember, even if it was riddled with images of the dead.
How's the nevmione going?? Can we have another sneak peek?
I am legitimately struggling not to start posting chapters. I only have ten written so far and I don’t think I’m at the halfway point yet. If I did start posting, it would only be probably one chapter a week.
Here’s a small sneak peak, however:
She met him outside of the Dragon’s Den, the fanciest new restaurant in Diagon Alley. He wore comfortable-looking dress robes, but nothing that looked either too casual, or overly fancy. She smiled at the sight of him. “How are you able to just … look like you’re so comfortable in your own skin?” she asked him.
Neville laughed nervously. “Do I? I don’t feel like I do,” he admitted. “One too many growth spurts in school had me a bit of a disadvantage when it came to adjusting to anything.”
“You’ve grown since school,” she commented.
He smiled. “So’ve you. But … you’re still just as beautiful as you ever were, Hermione.”
She blushed and smiled back at him. “Beautiful? Maybe fourth year. Two tons of Sleakeazy’s and a pretty dress.”
Neville shook his head and reached out, touching one of her wayward curls. “I’ve always preferred this,” he said. “It’s … wild.”
She licked her lips. “You like wild?” she asked and then widened her eyes when he swallowed hard. “Oh wow … I didn’t … that was a bit … forward,” she said and then laughed awkwardly. “I don’t know how to act around you. You’re my friend so do I … I don’t know, act normal? But then there’s our situation, so do I flirt or … act … insane?”
Neville laughed softly. “Please be yourself,” he requested. “Just … do whatever comes naturally.”
“None of this is natural,” she said with a frown. “We’re being forced by the Ministry to—”
“No one forces me to do anything,” Neville said firmly. “I’m here with you because you are a beautiful woman who … who I’ve fancied for quite a few years. If the Ministry put out a statement tomorrow saying they were retracting everything they’ve said about the potential marriage law, I would still be here, pleading with you to give me a chance, Hermione.”
Being an official NetSavior wasn’t only about having exciting battles and saving the world : it also included some formalities, such as the monthly health checkup at the ministry of Science. This mandatory procedure was meant to make sure that repetitive use of CrossFusion didn’t cause any damage to the operator’s body, and to the Navi’s to some extent.
Dingo didn’t really mind the testing, since they were only one more occasion to CrossFuse. The cases in which he had actually used that technique to get rid of the danger were so rare, that the testing sometimes happened to be the only time when he used CrossFusion in a month … The research teams were intending to turn the tests into a quarterly procedure, but Dingo had assured them that he didn’t mind coming once in a month !
He still wished he could use this occasion to show his skills off to someone … That’s when he had the idea of actually inviting someone to come along to see the testing. It made no sense to invite the friends that had performed CrossFusion already before, so Saito was the first person to come to the boy’s mind. He knew that the older boy wasn’t usually interested in anything that had to do with the Cyberworld, but maybe this would be an occasion to prove him how cool the Net really was ! Dingo prepared an email, grinning at the prospect of the monthly testing being even better than usual.
“Hey Saito !
I know you’re not a fan of Net-related stuff - and I still can’t believe you brought us to the NetArea last time, thank you so much - but would you like to come along to my testing at the ministry of Science tomorrow ? I guess Netto has already showed you CrossFusion, but you’ve never seen me do it, and you’ll have to admit it’s at least as cool as an epic battle from the Lord of the Rings !
The testing is next Friday, early in the afternoon. I hope to see you soon anyway !
