Apologies for the long break in between chapters, but RL has interfered with my ability to write (mostly unpleasant and stressful interference, too). I have been updating Draco’s Heart, however, so we’re up to chapter seven there. Lots of Draco, Ginny, Ron, Luna, and Hermione in these chapters — and Gareth — and some Severus coming up soon, too. Draco’s Heart is a companion story to A Long Vernal Season, so if you’re reading LVS, you’ll probably enjoy Draco’s Heart, although the style and pacing are a bit different from LVS.

Woohoo! for wonderful autumn holidays with leaves turning colors and the air brisk and cool!

I posted the last chapter of “The Sorting of Suzie Sefton” to the Petulant Poetess today.

Chapter Four: Buzzing Humbugs
Suzie hears more Slytherin gossip, gets to know more members of Slytherin House, and has reason to worry about her Head of House.
