The Second Road to Death - Sa13+
 

{ Dedicated to Dee, and all the readers of Us. }



To old readers - ahoy, maties! Welcome BACK! For news ones, I'm Maxie, and I've been writing fanfiction on SS for over three years. This is my thirteenth FF thread, and one which deals with the "darker" lot of first generation characters - Tom Riddle, Bellatrix Black, Lucius Malfoy and more. I may not always stick to cannon details, but one thing is guaranteed - Sit back and relax, because you're going to love this ride.

Disclaimer: I do not own any of the Harry Potter characters - they belong to J.K. Rowling.



*

The Castles’ yearly balls were always runaway successes. And, now, with fairy-lit rose bushes to line the vast grounds, and floating, gold-touched candles to illuminate their green, the Castles were sure their annual ball would be an even grander affair than usual.

“It shall be peerless,” Countess Alva Castle said, dipping her hands in her traditional bowl of rosewater, a technique that supposedly made them younger and fresher. “Of course, the Blacks…” her voice trailed off, but she shook away the uncertainty immediately. “A lot depends upon you this year, Andra.”

Young Andra Castle put down the hairbrush she had been running through her thick, black hair, and raised an eyebrow. “Mother, please. Not the hostess thing again.”

“Andra! Your English sounds vulgar. If you can not sound the way a Castle should, you had better not speak. Your language shall be noted during the ball – you are the hostess. I can not tolerate you speaking so.”

Couldn’t she ever give the language thing a rest? Andra rolled her eyes, exasperated. The ball. The hostess. That was all she had hear about, this past month. Alva was making too big a deal out of this! Yes, being the hostess of a Castles’ ball was a prestige – at least, that was what everyone said – but, really, there was nothing grand about the fact that the hosting duties were being passed down to Andra, this year.

For as long as she, Andra, could remember, her mother, the Countess, had hosted the ball. And done it splendidly, too. But it was time Andra was introduced into formal society – which probably meant she had come of age, right? – and the Countess had found the perfect way of doing it: passing on her hosting duties, and introducing Andra as the new hostess.

Which duties Andra was already finding hectic, even with a week still to go before the ball took place. The way her mother spoke – You would think it was something out-of-the-world, being a hostess.

“Be careful, Andra.”

“Don’t walk like that, Andra.”

“Speak politer, Andra.”

Can’t you learn to mix a butterwhisky, Andra?”

“Andra!”

“The Castles’ Balls are famed far and wide, both for grandeur of manner, and splendour of décor,” Countess Alva was now saying, as she carefully lifted the bowl of rosewater off the dressing table. “The splendour of décor, the Castles shall see to. But the grandeur of manner, you seem quite intent upon ruining.”

Getting to her feet, Andra stifled a yawn.

“I’m off to see Lucius. Maybe even Cissy. Call me back when you start speaking English again, mother dearest.”

Alva Castle turned around, her manner impatiently patient, but Andra’s footsteps had already faded into a light, faraway sort of sound. The door to the Countess’s bedroom stood slightly ajar and, with a little sigh, Alva shut it, close.

:faint:
Is that Dee me?! :loved: Noooo wayyyy, I can't possibly be lucky enough to have an FF by The Great Maxie dedicated to me! :gasp:!!! -Gets up and dies again- :faint: My heart can't take so much at once!

And as if that wasn't enough ('cause Maxie must really be looking to give me a heart attack out of pure joy here :loved: ), DID I JUST READ THE NAME "LUCIUS MALFOY"!?!?!?!
-Cough; choke; third death-
:faint:
MAXEHHHHHHH.
:loved:
OMG. If anyone can ever take Draco-precious's place is DEFINITELY Lucy-- Lucius! :loved: I'm already in pure love with this FF... I'm so in charge of the cover for this one too. :xd:

And now that you've officially killed me, Maxie, I can finish this with a big, fat... I love you! (after Draco and Lucy, of course :whistle:). :loved::P

Tell me about it! If he didn't end up so almost-zombie-dead-nasty in the end, he could've competed with my lovely Malfoys. :drool:
By the way, I'm working on a little surprise for you, oh Maxieness the Greatness. :bow: :evil:

P.S.: I'm sorry, I think I might have started a dying trend on your new fic. :(
I totally didn't mean for all of your readers to die so that there would only be lil' ol' me... :evil:

X-Girl 07-15-2009 02:23 AM

Dude, let them DIE. At this rate, I'll be your only reader and I'm quite content with having your writing only for my own pleasure. :evil:

Anywayy, you already know how great you are at these FFs [*cough*AMAZING-SIGGY*cough*] so I won't ramble on about that any more than I have already but...dude, this fic marks the VERY first one I've started reading since the beginning in a VERY long time. Soooo, feel special. ;)

Ha, no seriously, I've got high hopes for this one. The title is entirely too attractive and well, I couldn't help killing the cat with that darn curiosity everyone keeps warning me about. Not to mention the fact that I'm totally a sucker for romance stories. :shifty:

I totally just subscribed and I'm looking forward to some more Ava, Maxie! :loved:
