On chapter 9

Hi guys. We've been getting a lot of comments asking us about our next update lately. I know that we keep promising on and on that we are, indeed, writing and I also know that it's annoying to receive such replies only to find out that we're still not that close to posting something. I mean, I should know. I have also been subjected to that kind of wait but please be patient. :D

As what alcarcalime said, the last few months have been so hectic but luckily, the last few weeks were good to us so we were able to write a huge chunk of the last three chapters. Yes, it's really really coming. It only needs a few minor touch-ups and our fabulous beta will get it as soon as possible.

So please, please be patient. I know a lot of you are annoyed with us right about now and I really want to apologize for the delay. It's been a tough few months. Grad school is the Transfiguration to our Ginny.

Again, I'm really sorry and please have faith in us that we will be posting it soon. I don't want to make promises again but it's coming. And as proof that we're actually doing something about it, here's a few snippets of Chapter 9: May:




May 3

 

Gin,

Of course I’m clever. I remember this small village in Oslo and I ran into a group of witches and they sure think that my joke about the hag, the barkeep and the Irishman was such a hoot. 

            Have you heard of it?  Of course you’ve heard of it.  You’re a Weasley.


P.S. I had a great time, too, Gin. Too bad you had to get back early. When’s the next Hogsmeade weekend? I’ll come and visit.

Harry,

The hag joke was a hoot?!  Please tell me they saw your scar because there is no way that they would think that it was funny.  Ron’s Uranus joke was better.  It’s a disgrace to Norwegian humor.  It’s either you Confunded them or you showed them the Chosen One Badge on your forehead first. 

 

P.S.  The next Hogsmeade weekend will be on the 11th and as much as I want to get out of this castle, I can’t.  I have Quidditch practice that day.  I’m really sorry.  Perhaps next time?

Gin,

Fine, they saw the scar (or as what you lovingly put it, the Chosen One Badge) but it was only after they gushed about my sexy, unkempt hair and my dazzling smile.  What can I say, I’m a stud in Norway.

 

P.S.  Nah, it’s all right. I’ll survive. It’s just that I miss you already but Quidditch and your N.E.W.T.s are more important.

Harry,

Please take note that English is not their native tongue and ‘stud’ could mean ‘specky, scrawny gits’ in the Norwegian dictionary.

 

P.S.  Now I feel guilty.  But there’s still the Quidditch final in two weeks. We’ll see each other then, yeah?

Gin,

            Hey what do I know?  My specky, scrawny self might have been attractive to them.  Won you over a year ago, didn’t I?

 

P.S. Of course I’ll be there. I just hope Robards wouldn’t give me detail work that day but Auror work notwithstanding, nothing can stop me from seeing you kick Ravenclaw arse.  I miss you. (Have I mentioned it lately?  Ron thinks I’m being a prick.)

Harry,

Believe me, I ask myself that question everyday for the past twelve years.

 

P.S. Yes, you’ve mentioned it once or twice but the constant reminder makes it all the more wonderful to know. You know I miss you too, right?
