Title: Past Presents and Present Moments
Author: [livejournal.com profile] godricgal
Rating: R, but only just.
Word Count: 1,724 words.
Summary: It's Boxing Day and Remus and Tonks are spending the evening with Tonks' grandpa, who has a question for Remus.
Author's Notes: Written as a rather belated birthday present for [livejournal.com profile] shimotsuki. I had intended to post this later in the week, but I thought it might be nice to post it tonight, to coincide with other birthdays. ;) This fic (Duckingverse) partners Christmas Quackers. Pre-reading isn't vital, but they're so close in the timeline that you might like to know what had gone before. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] mrstater for the beta.

godricgal: (Pink Christmas - Godricgal)
Title: Christmas Quackers
Author: [livejournal.com profile] godricgal
Rating: PG (Just to be on the safe side.)
Word Count 3,375 words.
Summary: As Remus and Tonks' first Christmas approaches, they manage, around their Order duties, to make time to enjoy a little Christmas shopping together and pay a visit to Tonks' beloved Grandpa.
Author's Notes: This begins in mid December of OotP. It's set in Ducking verse, but I don't think you'll miss too much for not having read the other fics. It's probably enough to know that Remus and Tonks have a certain fondness for ducks. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] mrstater for a quacking beta job and for being one step ahead of me with the duck puns. ;) I should add that this is what should have been my Meta Advent fic, for which I had two prompts, only one of which I can remember: Christmas crackers, and so I assume I have not used the other one. Though it's possible that I did...;)

Summary: She sounds like a petulant school girl and winces slightly because that's not how she wants to come across to the older man she wants to think well of her in terms of being a lot more than just the good friends they aren't quite yet but could be.
Warnings: There's a smidgeon of smut.
Author's Notes: Dedicated to [livejournal.com profile] mrstater for the occasion of her birthday. With thanks to [livejournal.com profile] patriot_jackie for reading an early draft of this, and with bucket loads of thanks to [livejournal.com profile] bratanimus for doing a fantastic beta job on this and putting up with my tendency to flirt with the last minute. :)

From the drabble meme, here is drabble Two, In the Face of Marriage for [livejournal.com profile] gilpin25, who requested Remus, Bill and/or Fleur, with the prompt 'face'. It's 776 words and teeters on the edge of G/PG.

In the Face of Marriage )

Drabble one, Bedtime, can be found here. It's 750 odd words long and rated PG, features Remus, Teddy and Tonks, and is pure fluff.

From the drabble meme, here is my first, for [livejournal.com profile] drumher, who requested Teddy and Remus with the prompt 'bedtime'.

Imaginatively titled, Bedtime, and rated PG, you'll find it, not quite at drabble length, beneath the cut.

Title: No Time for Ducking, Chapter Five
Author: [livejournal.com profile] godricgal
Summary: It's early days in Remus' and Tonks' budding relationship. Just how serious is it? With their respective responsibilities to the Order, will they find the time for their relationship to move forward?
Rating and warnings: R for mildly explicit sexual content
Author's Notes: Many, many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] mrstater for listening to me ramble on about this fifth and final chapter and for a super beta job. :) Please take note of the new rating.

No Time for Ducking, Chapter Five )
godricgal: (Want (shower pic))
Nineteen months after I started it, I have just finished writing No Time for Ducking to the point I'd originally intended to reach.

While the fic's not terribly long, it's has, obviously, taken me a long time to reach this point. Apart from the outside factors of the rollercoaster of a nineteen months that RL has been, having to divert my attentions to various challenges and generally just being a 'when the mood takes me' kind of writer, one thing that has held me back is that I feel that Ducking is very much my version of events - it's how I picture things happening - if not in the specifics then in that quick and all-consuming love affair: my explanation for how things go so very wrong in HBP, and DH helped me out there with the early marriage, so I've agonised about the relationship progression and the mindset of Remus and Tonks along the way, to quite a large extent.

At several points I've considered making this a full OotP, HBP, DH length fic. At others I've just wanted it finished because I hate to keep people waiting for my schedule, and it's been so nice - so very nice - that people have asked about it and maintained interest over all that time. Over the last week, I've gravitated back to wanting to continue the storyline of this 'verse, and I'm pretty much married to the idea of doing that.

What I can't decide is whether to do that in Ducking or whether to think of this as a series and to pick up their story in a new fic. This 'verse already has three separate fics: Of Mischief and Responsibly, No Time for Ducking and Asinus Protego, so I could very well use fic events to flesh out the in between. I just can't make up my mind, though, and I've never been able to through out all the time I've been thinking about this.

So here is my question to you: how do you feel as a reader about following a fic serial? Does it make the overall story arc harder to follow, or do you like the idea of separate storylines within an ongoing plot of relationship development? As a writer, have you ever faced the same dilemma? Those of you who are writing or have written a series - why did you choose to write that way and do you ever regret that decision? Those of you who are writing long epics - do you ever wish you'd chosen to break it up a little?

Thanks in advance if you have any input to this - I'm in such a quandary!

Hope you all have a good weekend and happy May Day weekend to those on my side of the pond.

[livejournal.com profile] gilpin25 thought I ought post a teaser to my SWS fic or the next chapter of No Time For Ducking. Because I've probably bored you all silly droning on about the SWS, I thought I should prove that it does actually exist and post a bit of that, but I can't post very much of it, so it's a very short excerpt from the beginning. To make up for that, there's a bit of Ducking, too, which hints at what's going to happen in the last chapter of the story. (which may or may not be the one I'm currently working on!)

Anyway, I hope you find yourselves teased. ;)

Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] bratanimus! I hope you had a great day, and that it was completely relaxing.

For your pressie, I've posted the opening scene from my new fic. I'm afraid there's no Sirius, though he is mentioned. ;) I hope you enjoy. :)

Happy birthday, my Lisa! I hope you have a wonderful day, filled with pressies and Remus-y thoughts.

Speaking of which… It took me a while to decide what to write for you, but then when I happened on this idea, I knew I couldn't write anything else. Tonks takes a lesson you've had before, and at one point, Remus is channelling you. ;)

You are the very best of friends, and this comes with lots of love. xxx

Oh, and the icon is, of course, a message from Remus. :)

Today is my last in London. I have a couple of friends coming 'round for a few hours and then I hope to see out my last night here with a little normality: fic writing and LJ-F5ing, with periodic checks of BBC News and Facebook…

I'm pretty much all packed up, and it's looking a bit like an empty shell. Home ain't home with out your pictures hanging on the wall. ;)

Anyway, the real reason I'm here is to pimp my [livejournal.com profile] metamorfic_moon Last Chance Full Moon Showdown fic, which I don't think I've done do far on my LJ. So here it is, it's called Asinus Protego and it's a bit of romance, mystery and drama, although angst is definitely wanting to creep into the forth chapter. ;) If you should find yourself with a bit of spare time on your hands, I'd love to know what you think.

Also, there have been some fabulous contributions to the Showdown so far, both fic and art, so be sure to mosey on over and have a look!

Meme!

godricgal: (Lee looking down)
Writing meme ruthlessly stolen from [livejournal.com profile] mrstater.

01. Do I have a distinct style of writing?
02. If so, what exactly is it that defines my style?
03. Would you say my stories follow a certain theme?
04. Is there anything you feel I ought to improve or change?
05. Does my style (if I have one) remind you of anyone else?
06. Judging from whatever writing of mine that you've seen, what do you think is/are my strength(s)?
07. What do you think are my weaknesses?
godricgal: (Remus and Tonks Hands)
I had intended to wait until ff.net alerts were back up and running before I posted chapter 3 of No Time For Ducking, but I know some people are waiting for it, and I feel bad keeping it under wraps now that it's been finished for a while, so I've posted it.

So, here we go:

Title: No Time For Ducking, Chapter 3
Author: [livejournal.com profile] godricgal
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: None
Summary: Sequel to Of Mischief and Responsibility. A walk in the park leads to so much more than either Remus or Tonks might have expected.
Author's Notes: Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] mrstater for buckets loads of encouragement and a fine beta job.

Chapter 1 Chapter 2
godricgal: (Saint George)
Title: By George, A Muggle Slew a Dragon?
Author: [livejournal.com profile] godricgal
Rating: PG-13 for a little language
Format and word count: Ficlet, 717 words
Warnings: Silliness
Summary: Remus tries to convince Tonks that St. George really did kill a dragon, and yes, he really was a Muggle…
Author's Notes: This bunny bit a couple of weeks ago and refused to let go, so in the best interests of keeping all digits attached, I caved and wrote it. I've taken a few liberties with the story of St. George, the facts are essentially there, I've just mixed tales and blurred the lines of truth and myth. Happy St. George's Day! Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] mrstater for the last minute beta job.

By George, A Muggle Slew a Dragon? )
godricgal: (Remus and Tonks)
I have finally finished chapter three of No Time For Ducking. I can't believe how long it's taken me to write this chapter, it's shameful, really. However, it's finished now, and I think I'm pleased with it. Assuming ff.net alerts are back up and running, I shall post it there on Monday or Tuesday. In the meantime, you'll find a short teaser beneath the cut.

Teaser )
godricgal: (Love hearts Godricgal)
I'm really disappointed to have to say that I'm not going to get my fic for the first main round of the Jumble finished on time. :( I could rush and finish it and present a half told story that would kind of make sense, were it not for the fact that Remus and Tonks currently have little more than cameo roles...Took my gen prompt a little too far. I think the problem is writing gen must be like Remus and Tonks sitting next to each other in a boring Order meeting, the touchy feely is too hard to resist! Therefore, they're staying well away. ;) I will finish the story, because I do love the idea of it, and I'm having a lot of fun writing from George's pov, but I don't know when. I'd like to try and get it done by Friday, but not at the cost of not catching up on reading and reviewing, so we'll see.

So anyway, I'm sorry for the poor show - this job business really gets in the way of things sometimes, I'm used to being a full time fangirl! ;) I'll be catching up with reviews from tomorrow and I'm looking forward to reading all your offerings.
