And… We’re BACK!! YESSS! :D (P.S. I love HEX!)

September 4, 2013

I’m so sorry for the late post, but I wanted to let you folks know that By Firelight is OUT OF HIATUS! Or… however you say that… ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s back!

It feels so good to be writing this story again. Chapter 21: Not Alone Anymore has been posted on multiple fanfiction archives, and I’ll update the page with the Story Links as soon as I’m done typing up this post. ๐Ÿ˜€

I also written a new Harry Potter one-shot based on the HBP movie, Flight of the Songbird, which so far, I’ve only posted on Fanfiction.net. I’m kinda waiting till I get a review there before I post it elsewhere. Don’t hate me! Be warned, though: It’s a sad story. I wrote it first thing in the morning on the day before I posted it, so I guess I was a bit depressed that morning. But fighting depression with writing is better than not fighting it, right? I think it’s much better. ๐Ÿ™‚


In other, less-exciting-but-still-fun-news, I’m playing Hogwarts Extreme RPG again, and I re-uploaded my story there. I guess I’d either deleted it at some point and forgotten, or it got removed along with others as part of a major update. There have been a crazy lot of unimaginably awesome updates to HEX, and yes, I know I’m already going goofy over the place, but listen: I used to be a webmistress… Ever heard of a little ol’ Proboards forum known as Enchanting Hogwarts? Trying to move it to a non-Proboards site was my absolute, number-one HUGEST mistake EVER! ARGH! *deep breath* Okay… I’m calming down now… Anyway, if I ever managed to make, own, run, or even help moderate a site as graphically and technologically awesome as HEX, I would literally lose my mind with OMGness. ๐Ÿ˜€

That said, my username on HEX RPG is Rebecca Ripple, as usual, and yes, I’m in Hufflepuff. As you may have realized if you’ve been following me for a while, I registered there years ago, back in 2009. Now, I still love Hufflepuff House to bits, but these days, I’d rather be earning points for Ravenclaw. Hey, times change! My preferences get to change once in a while, too. Right? ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s not like I’m begging the admins to re-Sort me. And no, before you ask, I wouldn’t. I’m still a Hufflepuff at heart, at least partially. I just… really like Ravenclaw… ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyhoo… I hope you enjoy(ed) the new chapter, and my new one-shot. Have a great day, and stay magical! ๐Ÿ˜€


By Firelight – Important News Update!

April 17, 2011

I think I owe you guys an apology. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Strike that; I definitely owe you an apology. I got your hopes up too soon, saying Chapter 21 would be ready in a week or so. That was nearly a month ago, and I haven’t even added a page to the chapter since then.

Chapter 21 Coming Soon… I Hope!

March 19, 2011

Hi, everyone! How are you fine folks doing lately?

I’m sitting in front of Chapter 21 – which, by the way, is a little over 3,000 words long now – and thinking I should post a little something to let you all know that I’m still writing. I know I don’t post often enough. I’ll see if I can post more in the future…

Normally, since 3,000 is sort of my words-per-chapter average, I’d be fine posting what I have, but I still have to reach a good stopping point, and that might take a few hundred words or more. But I really am trying, I promise. I’ve got a good chapter planned. Now all I have to do is put the rest of it into words. ๐Ÿ™‚ Patience, friends, it’ll be worth it.


Chapter 20 is up!

January 21, 2011

As you may know, the twentieth installment of By Firelight, dubbed “Dream Yourself Awake”, is done and posted. It was actually posted last night, but better late than never to announce it, right? Sorry for my latenessย โ€“ I brought a note. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll be updating the list of links today, because there are a few new sites who’ve been kind enough to let me post my story there, too.

Remember, I love reviews, so don’t forget to post yours! ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks!

Arnel is the best! She beta read this chapter for me, and she’s an awesome writer herself, so check out her amazing Harry/Ginny stories at PhoenixSong.net!


Chapter 19 is here!

October 20, 2010

I hope you’ll like this new chapter! Chapter 20 will hopefully come without any real problems, and I’ll have it posted as soon as I can. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks to Arnel of PhoenixSong.net, who beta read this chapter for me. And now, happy reading to all!


Chapter 19 Nearly Ready!

October 19, 2010

Chapter 19 is most likely complete, unless my beta reader, Arnel, has any changes to offer. I’m sure it’ll be ready within a few hours, tops. It’s all up to Arnel now. ๐Ÿ˜€ Don’t worry, she’s very good at getting back to me quickly.

Thanks, everyone, for being so patient!


Chasing Out the Rain

October 11, 2010

Hi everyone,

Over this past month or so, I’ve been up and down, but my friends are always there to make me smile. I think the least I can do in return is post a blog entry for all of you, letting you all know I’m still working at Chapter 19. It’ll come. Don’t worry. I just hope it won’t take much longer.

I’m sorry I can’t get into a regular chapter-posting schedule. I wish it were that easy. But when family life gets you down, sometimes you just have nothing you want to write about. But I swore when I posted Chapter Seven a long time ago that I would not give up this story until it is complete, and rest assured, I will keep that promise.

But right now, I’m trying to chase away those rainstorms life has sent me, and so far, things are improving. Who knows? Maybe one day very soon, I’ll have the inspiration to write the rest of the chapter in a matter of hours. It’s happened before. But unless it does happen again, I’ll need your patience. I really appreciate your sticking with me even when I have little to post, and I know it will pay off in the end, when you get the finished story.

So until next time,
