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!

Hi everybody who are patiently waiting for the next chapter of Way of the Warriors! As you probably know, it is part 5 of Out of the Blue, and it is supposed to be followed by one final part 6, before the series is done. However, for various reasons, I've decided not to do another story and instead combine Way of the Warriors with my plans and timeline for part 6 (five parts sound like a more even number for a series than six anyway...). Mostly, this is because of how slow my updates are lately: I have a feeling I'm losing both reviewers and readers, and because of the long wait, doing yet another story in the series after the slowpoke WotW has turned out to be doesn't seem feasible. :D Obiously, this also means the story will be longer: right now, I'm thinking maybe forty or forty-five chapters in total (which also means the story is more than halfway done!)

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!

It's about time I started posting here again, I think! This time, it's not about something connected to fanfiction. Instead, I wanted to post two music videos I've made. The first one is based on the character journey and difficulties Wesley Wyndham- Pryce had to go through on the TV-show Angel. The second one is based on the bittersweet relationship between Buffy/Angel. View them both under the cuts!

Title: Get It Right
Artist: Leah Michele - Glee
Fandom: Angel
Spoilers: ATS season 3-5.
Pairing: Hints of Fred/Wesley, Wesley/Faith, Wesley/Illyria, Wesley/Lilah
Summary: Even though he tries, he doesn't always succeed. But despite his failures, Wesley manages to go on fighting, trying to do his best.

i just want to fix it somehowCollapse )

Title: I Dreamed A Dream
Artist: Leah Michele & Idina Menzel - Glee Cover
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Angel
Spoilers: BTVS s. 1-3, ATS 1x8: I Will Remember You.
Pairing: Buffy/Angel
Summary: The love between Buffy and Angel - a vampire and a Slayer - are the stuff fairytales are made of. But even fairytales don't always get their happy ending. Sometimes, love isn't enough.

i dreamed that love would never dieCollapse )

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...

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.

Excerpts from Road of Carnage chapter 25

Here comes something for the curious... The list below are all things that will occur in Road of Sacrifice, from events to minor to major characters - do not read if you don't want to be spoiled at all! I've tried to be rather vague, but I'm sure you can figure out at least some of what will happen to who if you try, so feel free to guess, though I reserve the right not to answer, of course!

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!

 Hi everyone! 

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!
