Hi everyone! My Roads Travelled site went through a giant update when it came to art a few days ago because I have been forced to re-imagine the cast for the first war due to age-issues. Isla Fisher does not look to be in her early twenties, and neither does Sam Troughton or Johnny Depp. All my other actors, minus Sarah Michelle Gellar, were born during the same decade, and therefore looks to be around the same age: Isla, Sam and Johnny don't, unfortunately.
This means a lot of the art has been remade to fit the new actors: Karen Gillan, Iwan Rheon and Ben Barnes. BUT Sam Troughton and Johnny Depp will still portray Peter and Sirius, but AFTER the first war - that is, from the AU versions of book 1-7, during the second war, when they're supposed to be in their thirties. I could never let go of my vision of Johnny as Sirius entirely and as for keeping Sam - well, I never thought Timothy Spall was right, considering after he's lived as a rat for twelve years, Peter was supposed to be thin...
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the new art and hope you don't mind this major change/update. For me, it means I have to start from scratch with my videos (and I was almost done!), but I think it will be worth it in the long run, considering Roads Travelled probably won't be done for years yet!
So Way of the Warriors will be the final part of the series, and it will also be renamed to "Into the Blue" which is the title I planned to name part 6. "Way of the Warriors" will instead be the undertitle to all the chapters posted thus far, as well as a couple of chapters after that. In essence, you could call that 'book 1'. 'Book 2,' which will be the second half of "Into the Blue", will then have another undertitle, called 'Lightning Follows Thunder.' (And yes, I know that in reality, thunder follows lightning, when it comes to what the human eye/ear percieves: in reality, both occur at the same time - the title is meant to be ironic as well as symbolic).
I hope you have patience with me as I move onto the final stretch of this incredibly long series. It's been with me almost since I first started writing fanfiction...and I'm pretty sure I'm just as eager to get it done as you are! Of course, that doesn't mean I won't put in an effort into my writing - I'm really excited for what will now be 'book 2' of the final part of Out of the Blue!

The first chapter of Road of Sacrifice is now up! Find it on my website, on Twisting the Hellmouth, or on FF.Net. On my FF.Net profile page you can also find a poll regarding which actor should portray an adult Remus Lupin (second war) in future art!
With less than a month to go before Road of Sacrifice - the third part in the Roads Travelled series featuring the second part of the first war - is published for its first chapter, I decided it was time to give you all a little treat! Other than a new LJ Header for Road of Sacrifice and a new blurb/theme-song, here are some spoilers...
Remember that little teaser list of things to come in Road of Sacrifice that I posted back in January? I've decided to expand on a little details: New life >> New Hope = Harry. (That was the easiest guess...) There will be a prophecy: Is it the prophecy from HP canon or a new one, you ask? Keep asking. lol. A glimpse into Sunnydale life: some Sunnydale characters will make an appearance. Whether they will appear as dreams, flashbacks, in the Sunnydale-verse, or HP-verse, I won't say, however. Their appearance will make Buffy wonder about some things, though. What things? That would telling!
As a final teaser to tide you over the rest of June, below is the intro-text to the first chapter, from Lily's POV, along with part of scene between Voldemort, Bellatrix and Mandy during her captivity...
( Click here for teasersCollapse )
Here comes more spoilers, this time for the next chapter of Road of Carnage (chapter 25), in the form of three teasers taken out of context... obviously, don't read if you want to be totally surprised. Or have trouble with handling suspense. The first teaser is quite mild, but the last two, albeit short...well, I won't say anything more. Also, for those interested, several new still frames for Death Eaters and some Order members can now be found on the Roads Travelled website.

( Find the list of foreshadowing under the cutCollapse )
I hope this will tide you over! If you want more details on a specific part of the list, let me know and I'll try to oblige, without revealing too much, of course!
This entry is to do with Road of Sacrifice (3rd part of RT) and the rest of Roads Travelled, but no spoilers!
I would like suggestions for things you would like to see happen in the future, mainly during the second war: I already have all of Road of Sacrifice planned out. It doesn't have to be anything really thought out: loose thoughts, wishes or ideas are more than enough. Feel free to suggest anything: from plot to characters. Questions are also welcome, though I may not answer if I feel it would give too much away!
