Pottermore (again)!

Hey long lost friends! I'm getting some random friend requests on Pottermore and I have no idea who they might be. So, if you happen to friend me (MagicEye135) leave a message below so I know who is who! Mostly because I am too dumb to know how to message on the site itself. See you there!

Pottermore!

I know I never ever post on livejournal anymore, but I thought I would just throw it out there that I'm signed up for Pottermore under the username EchoQuill157. Still haven't received my welcome email to it's not official that I will have early access but still, I am stoked! It's good to have more HP stuff to look forward to!

EDIT: Apparently I was never registered the first time around (damn you Yahoo mail!) but I am now. New name is MagicEye135. Not as good as EchoQuill157 but what are you going to do.

Foul-Weather Friend, Chapter 15


Title: Foul-Weather Friend
Author: waking_epiphany (Jamie)
Rating: HARD R (NOTE THE RATING CHANGE), for language and sexy situations
Disclaimer: These characters do not belong to me; they belong to J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot.
Pairings: Sark/Sydney, implied past Sydney/Vaughn, implied past Sark/Lauren, implied past Sark/Alison.
Timeline: Estimating that the end of season 4 ended in the month of May, consider this to start in July of that same summer.
Summary: After suffering series of debilitating headaches and blackouts, Julian Sark takes a doctor-recommended leave from the second oldest profession in the world, espionage, only to be pulled right back into the thick of things at the arrival of a strange, scarlet envelope at his home. It contains intel concerning his longtime mentor, Irina Derevko, and there is only one other person who can help him find her. Sydney Bristow has left her life as a CIA operative to start a new life in anonymity after her sister, Nadia, is left in a coma and her fiancé, Michael Vaughn, is killed by Prophet 5, a mysterious terrorist group. She is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered existence when a familiar enemy and sometimes associate crashes back into her life. Reluctantly, they must work together to save something invaluably important to the both of them and in the in the process, maybe even save each other.
Author’s Note: Wow, this has been a long time coming. I don't even know what I want to say here in the final chapter of "Foul-Weather Friend". I started this story back in 2005 with a vague concept and a fiery love for all that is Sarkney, not knowing that I'd actually finish this thing, and in 2010 no less! Above all, I need to thank all the amazing, thoughtful, inspiring, and faithful followers of my little story, without whom, this story never would have happened. I'd also like to thank all those Sarkney fanfic writers and vidders out there, whose amazing stories and videos  have inspired and continue to inspire not only me but all Sarkney enthusiasts. They have kept the "Alias" love alive after all these years and for that, I am thankful. I have to say, I am sad at this, the end of "Foul-Weather Friend". Sad but hopeful that, maybe one day, many years from now, I can pick up where I left off: an ending that leaves the idea of a sequel an option.   However, if that never happens, I am content with the (somewhat fluffy) ending I have written. In the end, I can only hope that I have entertained my fellow Sarkney fans and offered a glimpse into an alternate universe in which Sydney Bristow and Julian Sark could have realistically evolved from enemies to lovers. Thank you, thank you, thank you all so much. I am missing Syd and Sark already!

Whether it would have been for the last time or for the rest of time, it wouldn't have mattered, because it would have been just the two of them, standing side by side. ..Collapse )

Author’s Note: Chapter 14 of 15 total chapters. I'll save the schmoopy stuff for the actual, FINAL chapter to follow. Chapter 14 soundtrack at the end of this post with the last chapter and the last soundtrack in the next. *Sniff, sniff*

In Love and War Chapter Five


Title:  In Love And War
Author: waking_epiphany (Jamie)
Rating: PG-13...for now ;-)
Disclaimer: These characters do not belong to me; they belong to Jim Henson and Brian Froud.
Pairings: Jareth/Sarah. Duh.
Timeline: Five years since the end of the movie.
Summary: Five years after Sarah Williams destroyed the Underground and its king she finds herself once again fighting for the people she loves. A decrepit, crumbling carnival is the setting of Sarah and Jareth's final showdown for not only her friends' freedom, but Sarah's own. Is thirteen hours enough time for Sarah to solve the riddle of Goblin King's labyrinthine heart?
Author’s Note: Just a little warning for the inclusion of blood and general weirdness in this chapter. This part of the story takes a darker turn. But that's not to say that there isn't some awesome Sarah/Jareth moments! We see Sarah giving the King a taste of his own medicine, so to speak. Please check out this chapter's additions to the soundtrack. Please comment, I am desperate for validation and compliments ;-)

Author’s Note: Part two of chapter thirteen. Gratuitous use of quotes from the movie, "Closer".  Lots of blood, cursing, and man on man action which, really, are the best parts of any story, if we're going to be honest with ourselves. Soundtrack at the end, folks.

 

Have you ever seen a human heart? It looks like a fist, wrapped in blood...Collapse )

Author’s Note: It's almost the end, folks! Many long years and we have this chapter and then chapter 14 and then THE END. Sad! I know it takes months and months for me to update, but I am going to miss this story and all of you very much. Enough of the maudlin crap, on with the story! Parts one and two of chapter thirteen features blatant (so, so blatant) homages to the movies "Kill Bill" and "Closer", Sydney vs. the hospitality manager, Jack and Irina play house, and some hot man on man action. As always, soundtrack at the end of part two.

 

Sydney bit her lip so hard it bled. The copper penny tang tasted like fear...Collapse )

The circle keeps spinning around me

I’ve lost my one in a million

I go insane a thousand times
My circle of friends is shrinking down
I get so far down I can only hope
I jump through the way, it gets lonely now
