my bed. now

Well shit.

I just decided to have a look at my remixed drarry soulmate au (I’m stockpiling options to choose from for when I post something at Christmas as a gift, having options makes it less scary) and my brain just did a dumb. A big, shoot myself in the foot, dumb.

So the original version that was on ffnet (and was my 2nd story tied with Restraint (was writing them at the same time, but finished the soulmate au first, does that make it 2nd? eh whatevs)) was 50k long, Draco’s pov, and went year by year in order, following canon until the battle in 7th year, and then split from canon for an 8th year and a post-hogwarts scene..

Then after I deleted everything off my ffnet account (I wasn’t about to post this on AO3 so it was still available like everything else, because I got a lot of really fucking nasty reviews on it and fuck that) I decided to remix it. For funsies. And cos I always wanted to do something non-linear and my writing style makes doing that from scratch impossible (unable to plan and write to a plan), I could just cut and paste and shift stuff around instead =)

So, after doing it once and making it completely non-linear, time jumping all over the place, I scrapped it, cos it was shit (altho…I think I kept the file, now that I think about it…might revisit that with fresh eyes…anywaaaay), and did it again, and it ended up being 40k long and I was happy with it (only shaved off 10k though *facepalm (actually… less than that because I wrote several new scenes too…)) 

I did that remix year by year, in chronological order, except, I interspaced scenes from the ‘current’ year with jumbled out of order scenes from 8th year (that had some minor relevance or linked theme to what was happening in the ‘current’ year), to give it a semi non-linear format. Cos why not? So it was like, [(scene from year 1) -> (scene from year 8) -> (scene from year 1)] repeat [] for each year until a post-Hogwarts scene. (oh, and a really really small bit from the post-hogwarts scene was also at the beginning of each chapter until it all came together at the end and the full scene was shown….fuck it sounds so overly complicated doesn’t it? whatever, I love it, and it’s a self-indulgent fic so whatevs)

BUT NOW

How cool would it be to reverse that, and do the entirety of 8th year as the bulk of the story (instead of non-linear fragmented scenes (I only used parts of scenes from the original version in the remixed version, rather than full scenes)) and interspace that with fragmented scenes from the previous 7 years? So [(Scene from 8th year) -> (scene from an earlier year, not chronologically) -> (scene from 8th year)] and repeat [] until the post-Hogwarts scene, which is uninterrupted.

Am I creating a fuck tonne of overly complicated work for myself that I don’t need? Yeah…

But I’ve been in a weird editing/re-writing/ mood lately and I don’t wanna waste it because it’s better than feeling down

But damn, it’ll be fun to play around with this fic again, but also, it’s gonna take forever, and need tonnes of new scenes, because in the original version, each year had it’s own chapter, and 8th year only had 2 chapters (even if they were a bit longer), so it’s massively unbalanced…and the first remix took so long…and this one will definitely take longer…

Fuck it!! I love this fic!!

IMMA DO IT ANYWAY!

(but seriously, this new remix first, but then one day I REALLY need to write the spin off alternate 8th year where they touched in the fire and they go into 8th year with Harry knowing Draco is his soulmate and dealing with that, and finding out Draco has known since 1st year and never said anything, and was a total ass to him, while Draco is also dealing with being called a hero for what he did in the battle, and hating it, and having his life amongst the Death Eaters exposed and poked at, and being elevated further because of it, and YES YES YES ALL THE ANGST)

(Alsooooooo 8th year of the original version but from Harry’s pov…how cool would that be? Him still wondering who and where his soulmate is, knowing they are still alive, and wondering why they have never come for him when his soul-mark is splashed periodically across the papers and they couldn’t possible not know it was him, and why they don’t want him, while also slowly falling in love with Draco, but feeling so guilty about it, and also not knowing if Draco’s soulmate is alive, if he knows them, is waiting for them, or what and just FUCK ME UP I WANT THAT ANGST, like damn, it was already so angsty from Draco’s pov, but Harry’s has a different brand of angst that I wanna play with)

(…also still need to actually properly re-write the original version to my current standard too…cos I still love it to absolute bits no matter how many people were complete fucking assholes about it, and I wanna make it shinier)

(…..I think I’ll be writing different versions of this story for the rest of my life)

(…and at some stage I should probably post at least 1 version of it, but I am absolutely still petulant and stubborn after all the asshole comments the first time)

(…I shouldn’t be allowed in my fanfic folder after midnight…)

(…sorry for anyone who actually read this mess of a post…)

(…I should probably actually go to bed before even opening a new file to start this new remix…or I might not sleep at all tonight…this should be tomorrow’s project…)

Lucky 💫

“Um, Malfoy,” Harry muttered. “What are you doing?” Baffled, he looked at the Slytherin, who didn’t seem to be concerned at all.

“I’m resting. I’m so tired,” Malfoy mumbled, eyelids fluttering shut. He did sound pretty sleepy. Harry blinked as Malfoy’s lips stretched into a soft, contented smile.

“Okay,” Harry said slowly. “But why are you resting on my lap?”

“Why not?” Malfoy replied. “Seems like a good place to me.”

Harry stiffened as Malfoy turned his head and snuggled into him. What was he playing at?

“Oi, Harry!” Harry looked up. Seamus had just entered the eighth year common room and was grinning at him. “Don’t you two look cosy,” he said with a wink. Harry blushed and tried to move his legs but Malfoy was just too heavy.

“I have no idea what’s going on,” Harry murmured. What had gotten into Malfoy?

“And then we have to get started on Transfiguration but first we have to- Oh!” Hermione stopped dead behind Seamus. Her eyes widened as she took in the sight before her, her studying schedule obviously forgotten. If only momentarily. Ron, who had seemed rather displeased with his girlfriend’s evening plans a second ago, suddenly had a weird glint in his eyes.

Harry watched his friends and was shocked when Hermione clutched her chest and put her other hand on Ron’s arm. He smiled at her and nodded.

“I thought something like this might happen,” he snickered.

“What?” Harry spluttered. When Pansy came into sight, a knowing grin on her face,  Harry felt like they were all in on a joke he didn’t get. “Can somebody please tell me what is going on?”

“Shhhhh,” came from Harry’s lap. “Trying to sleep here, remember?”

Harry eyed Malfoy suspiciously. He had to admit, he might have reacted a little differently if they had been alone. It was a bit sudden, but he wasn’t all that opposed to Malfoy lying on his lap.

Harry’s eyes darted to his friends again when Hermione leaned over to Pansy and whispered something to her. Looking exasperated, Pansy nodded. Harry still wasn’t used to the fact that they were all getting along so well now. Pansy could be fun but, still, Harry was a bit wary around her.

He kept his eyes on her as Hermione strode over to him.

“Don’t be mad,” she told him. Harry frowned.

“What did you do?”

“Well…” She looked at him sheepishly. “It’s more what I didn’t do.”

Harry looked at her, puzzled. She leaned closer to him and dropped her voice to a whisper.

“I didn’t stop Pansy, when she stole something from Slughorn’s personal stores and put it into Malfoy’s tea this morning.”

Harry’s frown deepened.

“What did she put in his tea?”

Hermione bit her lip and put a hand on his shoulder.

“We just felt like he deserved a good day for once. He’s been through so much.” She gazed at Malfoy thoughtfully. “That’s not to say you haven’t been having a hard time, either,” she added hastily. “But Pansy thought you might… benefit from it as well. Seems like she was right.”

Harry looked between Malfoy and Hermione, not understanding what she was telling him. It must have shown on his face. Hermione sighed and shook her head.

“Felix Felicis, that’s what Pansy put in his drink.”

Harry’s mouth dropped open.

“That’s why he’s being so weird?”

“You were weird, too, when you took it in sixth year,” Hermione reminded him.

Yeah, Harry mused, it had been a strange experience. He had felt so happy and cheerful, like nothing could go wrong. And, somehow, he had known exactly what he had to do to get… to get what he wanted.

Oh!

Harry’s eyes darted back to Malfoy, who was still smiling contentedly with his eyes closed. Harry wondered what would have happened if his friends had given him the potion, instead of Malfoy. He doubted things would have been this forward but, maybe, it would have had a similar outcome.  

Ignoring the fact that everyone in the room was watching him, he slowly raised his hand and ran his fingers through Malfoy’s hair. The Slytherin let out a long sigh that made the corners of Harry’s mouth twitch.

As he sat there, stroking Malfoy’s hair and marvelling at the fluttery feeling in his stomach, Harry thought it was lucky he and Malfoy apparently wanted the same thing.

and now, finally,,  shiro in a nice!! skirt!
