I’m still amazed at the progress I made in only an hour’s time over lunch. I was really gunning for it when I sat down to write, and already had lots of ideas popping up in my head. What was going to be filler until the final battle turned into a funny scene with Lucius scaring some muggle “kids” in a graveyard (if you consider folks 5 years his younger to truly be kids), followed by a sweet moment with him and Severus. Well it wasn’t really sweet, it was in a graveyard and there are lots of dead things around, but for them it was sweet.
Then we get some alluding to Severus’ secretive lineage and one pissed off Snape. Not a bad way to lead into a fight though. An angry Snape is not someone I would want to trifle with.
The time is before the Prophecy, and a young Lucius Malfoy is sent to explore the disappearance of a Death Eater family. When he comes across their bodies, he calls on Severus to assist him. Together they have to figure out the mystery behind the murder, and deal with the revelation of the Prophecy – and how Lucius and Narcissa’s son might be involved.

And depending on how I feel after I get back from dinner tonight, I may write some more. If I don’t get caught up watching Death Hallows Part 1 at least. I’m so looking forward to the film on Thursday night! I’ve got my midnight tickets all lined up, and I may even have a Narcissa Malfoy outfit in line. Just without that stark of black hair, cause that just irritates the hell out of me…
