"None of us were prepared for the fallout of reading the fallout before it was completed…."
"It is not only that, Cissa. Think about it. Think about how he always rattled on about her when they were in school. He could never stop talking about her, marking her as his equal. Frankly if it weren’t for her unfortunate blood status, we would have sought out the girl’s parents the summer after his first year to see if we could come to an agreement. You know that."
"She was in shock, none of what he had said had ever occurred to her and she bit down on her quivering bottom lip as a thousand memories shifted slightly inside her mind and fell into place. His reading a book during every meal, always getting picked last for group work despite having the 2nd highest grade in every subject."
"Blaise’s heart slammed under his ribs and he physically felt himself shaking in fury now. He pursed his lips and stared angrily at her, not wanting to reveal anymore hidden parts of his soul, but knowing he had no choice. The spell on the cards was going to force this one. And hell, it wasn’t like she’d just stripped him of his last defense…"
So I’ve decided to take on the Fanfiction Writing Challenge for March, its based on illusions. I’m still deciding which characters I will write about, and what the story will be but I think I may use this challenge to help me write a oneshot for Dair in addition to the contest story.
I am stoked to be getting my creative juices flowing again.
This is going to take a lot of concentrated effort on my part. I have to balance about a million things this month but I’m certain i will be able to accomplish it all!
I am on the hunt for a BETA, if you or anyone you know is interested in helping me with a few stories in the following fandoms let me know: Naruto (Romance: SasuHina), Twilight (Romance: Renesmee or Leah[Jacob or Embry or OC] or Bree/Fred or TBA), Kyle XY: (Romance: Kessi), Harry Potter (Romance: ScoRose and maybe a Dramione in the future)
EXTRA #1: The title of this fanfic (‘The Squeeze’) refers to a one-sided ‘Zugzwang’ in the game of chess. It describes a situation where one player is put at a disadvantage because he/she has to make a move when he/she would prefer to pass and make no move at all. In game theory, it specifically means that this move directly changes the outcome of the game from a win to a loss (example: forcing the King to move on the board to avoid being checked, but as soon as he moves, you’ve set him up for an inevitable checkmate). A one-sided Zugzwang is referred to in the chess world as ‘the squeeze.’
SUMMARY: What do you do when the one you love loves someone else? Theo loves Astoria. Astoria loves Draco. Draco loves Hermione. Hermione loves Ron. Sounds like a recipe for a ‘no-win’ scenario all around, doesn’t it? ….
Another great fanfiction to recommend. fobbybythebay the author of an amazing story To Muddy a Malfoy, read my story If I’m Dying, Your Dying, We’re Dying where I wrote using the 30 Wounds Prompts. Afterward she took on my “challenge” to write a story using the prompts in the exact order they are listed, and her story was brilliant!
It was practice for the rare pair challenge at Granger Enchanted, and I think you’ll enjoy it as well!

Decided to take it upon myself to pimp out some fan fiction! :]] One of my favorite HP writers is RZZMG and she wrote an Epilogue to a story written and completed by another author. I read the original piece and I fell in love with the story and understood the need to know more, I hope you do as well!
