aura890 asked: Hello! I have just read that one shot you did. Awesome y the way. But I'm curious if Green Glass will be updated soon? Or any other Tom/Harry stories?
i’ve mostly finished with the next chapter of GG, but my life’s really crazy right now and doesn’t look like it’ll be getting any easier for quite awhile, so…. we’ll see :S

He felt his heart pounding fiercely in his chest. How strange that in his dread of death, it pumped all the harder, valiantly keeping him alive. But it would have to stop, and soon. Its beats were numbered. How many would there be time for, as he rose and walked through the castle for the last time, out into the grounds and into the forest?
22 years ago today, Ronald Bilius Weasley shyly poked his head into Harry Potter’s compartment and asked, “Do you mind? Everywhere else is full”. And the rest, dear Potterheads, is history.
If anyone hasn’t read A Series of Unfortunate Events yet, I recommend that you should try it now, as it’s free :)
wow this is awesome!!
This is a short oneshot that I started writing spur of the moment based on a prompt given by wuphanpls (which I think I encountered in the tomarry tag) and which I have only recently finished. It’s not everything I wanted it to be, but I need to get back to my other writing. In the meanwhile, this has been a fun distraction and a good exercise. I’ll write a proper lemon someday, I suppose ; 3;
the last thing Harry could remember was slipping into the room of requirement and hearing the door click shut behind him.
a throbbing pain encircled the crown of his head, and his vision was blurred. he reached up to rub his eyes and found that his glasses where gone. disoriented, he pulled the blankets up around his naked body and squinted at the faint morning light which broke through the darkness of the room.
The Original “Raven” from Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven”
Perched on a log in the Rare Books department of the Philadelphia Free Library stands a strange piece of history. Dead since 1841, but preserved with arsenic, and frozen inside a shadow box, this bird’s legacy is longer than most people’s. His name is Grip. Grip the Clever, Grip the Wicked, Grip the Knowing.
Once Charles Dickens’ pet raven died, he had it professionally taxidermied and mounted. Grip even makes an appearance in Dickens’ lesser-known story Barnaby Rudge.
That book was reviewed by then literary critic Edgar Allan Poe. Poe wrote that “[the raven’s] croaking might have been prophetically heard in the course of the drama.” It wasn’t long after that Poe published his breakout poem, The Raven. The coincidence didn’t escape notice, and Poe was taunted with the refrain “Here comes Poe with his Raven, like Barnaby Rudge, / Three fifths of him genius, two fifths sheer fudge.”
Despite this, The Raven was a smash success and Poe enjoyed performing readings at fancy salon parties. He would turn down all the lights and recite the poem with great drama. Everyone referred to him as “The Raven”, but it would only be four years after publishing The Raven and gaining worldwide fame that Poe would be found delirious on the streets of Baltimore, dying shortly thereafter.
Today, Grip the Raven, who inspired both Dickens and Poe, can still be seen, proud as ever, in the Free Library of Philadelphia Rare Book Department, along with a great collection of both Poe and Dickens originals and other rare books.
Luna had decorated her bedroom ceiling with ﬁve beautifully painted faces: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Neville. They were not moving as the portraits at Hogwarts moved, but there was a certain magic about them all the same: Harry thought they breathed. What appeared to be ﬁne golden chains wove around the pictures, linking them together, but after examining them for a minute or so, Harry realized that the chains were actually one word, repeated a thousand times in golden ink: friends … friends … friends …
