Chapter 1: With friends like these, who needs hallucinations? )

laialda: (Thoughtful)
It's true. I never stop thiking about the fics I'm working on but, with a few exceptions, I usually don't feel like writing. Doubly so since my best friend moved out in June and I never get time alone to write (except for sitting on my bed in my room which is quite uncomfortable really). Combined with wedding planning/immigration paper work and crafting to sell tihngs at cons and you get a big lump of no time online.

Since hopping back into HP fics though and being just disgusted at what's popular right now (*gasp* your fic has Weasley and Dumbledore bashing to the extreme and Harry has a harem!!? That sounds so completely original! *rolls eyes with heavy amounts of sarcasm*) it has kicked my desire to write something decent back into the forefront on my mind. So this is where I stand on things:
  • Harry Potter/Alice Crossover 'Curious and Curious' - Chapter 11 now has a title to go with it's outline, along with many small notes in my head that I may or may not remember while I write. Hatter and Alice will be getting seperate scoldings and may have their talk before it ends, depends on how long the piece is already running.
  • Doctor Who/Alice Crossover 'New New Wonderland' - Chapter 2 has been sitting with about 2 pages typed into the first scene since June and I feel quite guilty about it. I've fallen into the trap of actually plotting everything out in detail and now have little drive to work on this crossover/ Doctor&Rose reunion fic as I know what happens. *sigh* Really would like to work on it some as it would be a very serious piece and I think my idea is a unquie one.

I have a week until my next convention so I do need to work on finishing the things I need for that (5 dolls, 4 hacky-sacks, bottlecaps and wands) but I think I'll try to do some writing tonight and see what comes of it. :)

Also, side note, after sepending some more time on LJ I think I'm going to put my fiction up on my journal here as well in the near by future. Thinking about back dating it if I do so I don't clog up those very few people who have me on their f-list. Plus it would let me make pretty banners for my stories and as an artist this appeals to me greatly. XD

Saw it the movie twice over the past few days and I feel after the second viewing I'm up to writing my feelings and thoughts on how everything was done.
Not recommened that you read if you don't want changes from the book to the movie spoiled for you. )

Overall? I think it wasn't that bad. You really have to take the movies as a separate universe from the books I think if you're a fan but I don't think the movie was horrible. Certainly not the worst of the franchise by any stretch of the imagination. I hold movie 6 in that lovely spot of honor. So much so that when I was given a run down of the movie by my friend (pictured above) I quickly changed my mind on wanting to see it.

And I am at that. *evil grin*

[info]sar_kaz_m this preview is being put up just for you to reassure you ch. 10 is under way (not to mention I'm fairly sure you're the only person who looks for these little bonuses of mine ;P ) and, if the 10 pages written so far are any indicator, should be finished either tomorrow or Monday. ^_~ Enjoy!
CaC chapter 10 excerpts/preview )

And that's all for right now. :D Like I said, should be finished in a day or two. Till then! ;)
laialda: (Thoughtful)
Okay, for whatever reason, I just can't make this scene work the way I want it too. It just feels awkward or the flow is wrong in some sections and I'm officially giving up on fixing it. Been trying to fix it for 2 weeks now. You know things are bad when you'll do just about anything BUT write stuff you've been looking forward to getting down in print for months.

Still, the idea had made me happy at one point and it's for bits like these that my LJ exists in the first place. Below is the now deleted bit. The event will still happen, but it will be in summary now. Hopefully I can finish chapter 8 by the end of the week as a result.
---------------------------------------

The few days the trio had to prepare came and went both quickly and too slowly at the same time until Friday afternoon found them stepping out of a taxi cab a good hour outside of New York City. It seemed strange at first that the lawyer would live so far out of the city to Alice but staring at the house behind the gate and curved driveway before them left no doubt in her mind that it was the right place. The paneling of the large imposing mansion had seen better days and she couldn’t quite shake the feeling that something was watching her as she followed Hatter towards the house. The creeping ivy and dead plants surrounding the connected greenhouse added to the feeling and she squeezed Hatter’s hand as she moved closer to him for additional comfort.

In short, the place gave her the creeps and Alice sincerely hoped they wouldn’t be kept here long before leaving for England.

Feeling Hatter give her hand a return squeeze caused her took look up at him finally and seeing his slightly wary glance at the house before them assured her more than the his grip had and she allowed a small smile. Harry’s energetic jog up the front steps proved he was the only member of their group still as excited as when they’d woken up that morning. Not wanting to be the reason to bring that happiness down, Alice let out a steadying breath and gave Harry a real smile when he looked back at the pair after ringing to door bell. A low rang tone through the house for a few seconds before the front door creaked open.

Instead of a face appearing, the first thing Alice could see was bottom ‘v’ of a vest and she had to look up, and then up some more until the expressionless face of a man she didn’t think would look out of place in a funeral parlor met hers. He stared down at all three of them without a word until Hatter finally broke the silence.

“Hello,” she heard him grin to her left, “I believe Mr. Addams is expecting us?”

The expressionless man gave a rumbling noise of what Alice could only guess was consent before stepping back as he opened the door fully. Harry had been unnerved by the tall man as well it seemed as he stuck closer to Alice and Hatter now as the three entered together and took in the front hall. It was clear that the office on Mulberry Street had been designed to match the house as dark gray wood and somber decorations surrounded them. Not letting his apprehension take over his innate curiosity apparently, Harry drifted away to look at some of the strange items in the hall. Before he could be warned not to touch any of them though, Harry stroked what had appeared to be a dark green stone lizard, that quickly uncurled from around the lamp base upon being touched, and shot a breath of fire at him before scuttling off.

“What the hell was that?!” Alice gasped while Harry laughed and tried to find the escaped lizard.

“That was Gustav,” a young woman’s voice to their right answered calmly and all three of them turned to look at her. Standing at the base of a large staircase, she appeared to be about Alice’s age with jet black hair bound in a single braid that fell over her shoulder and seemed to disappear into the mid-thigh length black dress she wore. “You scared him,” she stated in a flat monotone and looked down at Harry, “He doesn’t like to be touched by strangers.”

“Sorry,” Harry smiled brightly, “Thought he was part of the lamp; didn’t mean to give him a fright.” He then looked around the hall once, “Course I’m not sure what he’d find scary ‘bout me living in a place like this yeah?”

The woman raised one thin eyebrow and cracked the hint of smile at Harry’s comments before turning to their left, “Come with me. Father has been expecting you.” Still not feeling comfortable in the place, Alice took comfort from Hatter’s calm presence and Harry’s nonchalance as the group followed behind the unknown woman.

A short trip down the hall found them led into a study and Alice felt Hatter tense at the wide range of swords on display along the walls. It only took a moment for her to remember what he’d said about his last meeting with his lawyer and suddenly the encounter didn’t seem quite so funny any more.

“Father,” their guide stated as she stopped in front of a large desk. She looked back at their group once as they filed in beside her before turning to face the desk again, “They’re here. Are you prepared yet?”

Alice could only assume the man behind the desk shrinking files and sticking them in an open trunk was Mr. Addams and thankfully he didn’t seem interested in another impromptu sword fight. With a wave of his hand a few more items jumped into the open trunk before it closed with a resonating ‘thunk’. “Yes, I believe that will take of us for the week Wednesday,” he remarked before looking up at their little group. “Welcome dear friends,” Mr. Addams grinned wildly and spread his arms as he walked around the desk.

He glanced over each of them before locking eyes with Alice and she found herself very uncomfortable with the look he gave her. “What an enchanting creature you have brought with you Mr. Hatter,” Mr. Addams charmed and placed a short kiss on her hand that Alice discreetly wiped off on her jeans. No matter how charming he was trying to be, Alice couldn’t help feeling creeped out but this man for some reason.

“Umm, thanks. I think,” she managed to reply with a wary glance at Hatter who just smiled back at her in amusement.

“This is Alice,” Hatter introduced her properly, “Harry’s secondary guardian. I thought it best she be a part of this yeah?” He gave her a quick smile and she saw Mr. Addams nod understandingly.

“Certainly,” Mr. Addams agreed before grinned widely once more, but this time at Harry. “And you,” he continued with a touch of awe, “You must be Harry Potter himself.”

Harry smiled back at the man with ease, “Well if I must be, then I suppose I am.” He looked curiously back at the woman standing off to the side, “She coming along too?”

“Yes,” Mr. Addams clapped his hands once and gestured for the woman to come closer, “This is my daughter, Wednesday Addams. She’s the other half of our legal team and agreed to help with the battle ahead.”

Unfinished obviously. Shame it wasn't working out, but I feel better getting rid of it then keep messing with it.

laialda: (Dr. Who)
The ideas. Make them stop. Now if you please.

Seriously though, I've been plagued with plot bunnies these past few weeks the likes of which I haven't seen in a long time. I blame watching Dr. Who personally. Damn show turning my first steps at fourth dimensional thinking sideways. It's seriously not fair. I've got the Doctor monologing in my head lately when I need Hatter dammit. the only time he want to show himself though is to whisper dirty things in my mind - jump at the bottom if that's all you'd like to take a peak at.

So far I've been hit with three story ideas - well - four really, but the fourth one isn't right in the realm of throw out the window or set aside for another day...but I'm not sure if it would turn out well. This is me tossing them all out there though to be encouraged or shot down equally.

1) A Harry Potter & OC centered fic. That right there should tell you how much I'm not planning on writing it. Fans seem to hate OCs with a passion. Either way, idea was neat. Involved a normal young person having lucid dreams about the series and changing things cause well, their dream who cares? but only Harry can seem to remember the dreamer and events that took place after they left. Things change and stuff happens - Moving on!

2) A Doctor Who Piece.  As often as the Darleks keep popping up, I have to imagine the universe won't stand for an absence of any kind. To that affect, this fic idea mainly revolved around the consequences of Rose taking the time vortex into her and having it cause changes in her. Both mentally and physically. Essentially a rewriting of season two of the new Doctor as a consequence.

3) A Doctor Who/Alice 2009 Crossover. Simple premise really. I just like the idea of bringing the 10th Doctor into the fun of Wonderland's government upheaval. Could be any companion but I am fond of Rose. Course to do it properly I'd need to change the entire story and honestly, if I can't to do the other one this one's not being done either.

Click for Hatter's evil promises )

Bah, I should've known better than to keep a log by my bed to write these things down. I'm off to try chugging away at CaC ch. 8 again. If I can just get past this stupid scene I know the rest will write itself! >.<
laialda: (Default)
Just got back to good old Mary's land and I am so very much not looking forward to work tomorrow. XP It rained/stormed just about every night in Orlando but I'd always left the park by then so it wasn't too bad. Sucked Sat. night though as the water taxi to the hotel wasn't running so I had to walk about 1.5 miles back to the hotel in 90 degree weather plus humidity...it was about as fun as it sounds.
Still, I had an AWESOME time at the parks! ^_^

Look for picspam of Hogwarts and Hogsmeade tomorrow evening sometime if you're interested in seeing said things. XD
laialda: (curious)
So last week at work, I spilled a drink on my writing notebook and ruined it. >.< *sigh* So I've spent this afternoon copying over the all the notes and such I still need into my new one and came across this scene I'd jotted down and forgotten about. It's dialog only again and it's between Harry and the twins. Thought you might enjoy seeing how I plan on writing the twins. ^_^ Bold is Harry, regular text is the twins. Enjoy!

(Hit the jump for text) )
laialda: (Run)
I really enjoy writing these extra scenes as they give me a chance to not only do extra characterization that I couldn't fit in with the flow of the story, or flesh out events that get mentioned, but once again, have no home in the main story. Chapter three had been giving me such hell getting started that I thought about working on one, but I think I'll write one after it now that it's finally underway. I have a few that would compliment the plot right now (or for the next chapter) but not sure which I want to do more.
-The talk between Hatter and Pen I've referenced a few times, would mainly showcase the friendship they had along with Hatter's blatant inexperience with raising a kid
-Snippets of moments between Carol and Robert, including their reunion from Carol's POV, their first date, plans for the future, and possibly a bit with Hamilton family before Robert's kidnapping. A lot of their interaction happens off camera and I do feel like I neglect them
-Archibald Potter's fall into Wonderland, though if I do this one I may wait until after chapter 4 to post it as it would relate better

I have a few others that I've had on the plate since I started writing the extra chapters as well, one or two of which I've mentioned before.
-Charlie laying the reanimated knights to rest, which would include a tear filled moment between him and Sir Blagden as well as another hint for something I've been building on quite subtly, you know who you are if you've picked up on it ^_~
-More bonding/funny scenes with Harry and Hatter during Harry's two or so years in Wonderland, including the the hat catching on fire incident, the trip into Tugley Woods, and swimming lessons
-Jack and Duchess relationship scenes after Alice leaves, which would just be character building between the pair, fairly low on my list since they don't feature much in the sequel
-Reggie dealing with Hatter and Harry's 'sudden' disappearance after they go through the Looking Glass, and this will be moving up the list as I write more of CaC as it will become plot involved, but I don't think it will mesh well with the story flow, we'll see
-Summer vacation to Disney World, which has been done in other one shots before, but...well, they didn't have the people I have in mind to bring there *evil grin* >:D

Can you believe that all I need is a list of sentences (10 words or less typically) to remind me of these? I fear my brain will explode from all of these ideas one day... O.O

(p.s.-Chapter 3 is now titled There are no answers, only cross-references. Chapter 4 will be Go not to surrealist for council, for they will say both blue, and hippopotamus. The later of which I have on button pinned to the bulletin board at my desk. ^_^)

laialda: (Wrong)
Started writing chapter one for the sequel last night. Got almost a full page typed before I realized I didn't like how it was going as the feel was all wrong. Still...some of the stuff sounded good as far as writing goes and I'm just going to dump it here for archiving. Wee! See creative process in action! >.<
---------------------------------------------

Sometimes, it is the smallest actions that can have the most dramatic effects. A smile passed among strangers to lighten the day. Words whispered in darkened corners igniting a revolution. It is a theory commonly known as the butterfly effect, or occasionally an event called serendipity. In either case, it is small common day occurrence that compounds to far reaching consequences.

 

David Hatter, formally a native of Wonderland, was currently experiencing such an event as he sat on the couch of his rented apartment in New York City. The tension was easy to read in his shoulders as he played with the hat that had formally been sitting upon his head and his eyes flickered toward the door expectantly. His younger cousin, Harry Potter, and girlfriend, Alice Hamilton, were also present in the room and seemed to be showing varying degrees of tension as well as time continued to tick by. Not more than a few hours ago, it had been just a normal day for the current occupants of the moderately sized flat.

 

The appearance of a dove baring a short note had quickly compounded into much more than an innocent correspondence and was the cause of the current state of apprehension.

 

Hatter had attempted to appear unconcerned at the lack of answers from his phone call with his contact to his old world, and the reassurances that someone who could give him those answers would be arriving ‘soon’ continued to be insufficient as the minutes ticked by into hours.

 

When the knock on his front door came almost exactly two hours after his phone call, Hatter didn’t feel the need to ridicule the password system for once as he quickly made his way to see who was there.

Now I know we all have mental images to how a character appears in a book, and I completely respect that. Being an artist however, I enjoy putting my visualizations to paper for a wide range of things. yes that's right, we don't all just make art to 'express ourselves' ^_~.

The last few weeks have been a bit of a downer for me and writing took a hit for it but somehow drawing, something I haven't really had a strong desire to do in months, took over and I was struck with the need to create my designs of Hatter and Harry from my AU story that meshes Wonderland and the Wizarding World together. So I present for your viewing pleasure:




11 Year Old Harry




Hatter Profile pic

Both of their smiles bother me a bit but the more I look at them, the more they grow on me and there comes a point when you just have to stop messing with something or you'll only make it worse >.<. Not to mention Hatter's keeps turning into that sort of 'come hither type of stare' O.O. He's also not inked in yet like Harry obviously so I'll probably update that in a day or two.

I'm not sure Harry can get much more 'I'm adorable, trust me' then I've tried to capture here... ^_^

I'm thinking Alice and Charlie ones next ^_^
