Here we are at the conclusion, once again slightly edited from the FA version for your reading pleasure. ;-)

Paint the Town, part 6 )

And that, as they say, is that. I have no plans for a sequel at this time, though considering that I didn't intend to write this story, I wouldn't rule it out entirely. Maybe something about Remus, or Ron and Padma, or random snippits of everyday life. That's how Restoration happened, after all -- a bunch of strung-together snippits.

And I do like this particular post-war universe.

But I will not let my mind wander just yet! Instead, I will finish "The Way of the Apartment Manager." (Which has its own problems in terms of going away from my outline -- at this point, it needs two endings, one gloomy to return it to canon and one happier to go off on an AU tangent -- but which does have a definite plot arc.)

Paint the Town is now up in its entirety at FA, but you should keep reading this version instead. Because I've made a few minor edits between submitting the story to FA and posting it here, which I think generally improve the flow and emphasis of certain bits. And because I Say So. :-)

You know, I really need to get my own website one of these days, if only so I can put up definitive versions of my stories. I'm a compulsive editor, see, so even after I've posted something on one site, I tend to tweak it subtly before putting it up somewhere else. So this version of PTT is ever-so-slightly different from the version going up on FA (a changed word here and there, for clarity or a shift of emphasis).

The changes usually aren't drastic enough to justify resubmitting an entire story to someone else's website, but I'd like to have the 'good' versions all together somewhere.

Anyway. On to the fic!

Paint the Town, part 4 )

In real life news, my project won't actually be done by the end of the week -- we're getting another load of invoices on Monday, which we will have to check against the vendor catalogues (price shifts, you know -- we've disabled automatic electronic price updates so we could manually fix things), check against the general items, and then receive into the system. On top of that, we're going to have to assign storage locations on an inventory tally sheet, or something like that.

Oh well. I finished reviewing my half of the December invoices and have moved on to creating general items to match some of the new vendor items, which is much less likely to make my head explode from sheer boredom. :-)

Part 3. Still rated R, and we're getting closer to the actual sex. (Which is still glossed over, because I don't really write porn/erotica -- just not where my interest lies -- but quite definitely there.)

Paint the Town, part 3 )

In other news, we're nearing the end of the current project at work. I wonder what I get to do next? I hope it isn't something on the NSS side, because I still know nothing about the nutritional bits of the software programs. (I also seem to have learned more about the financial bits than most people in my department usually need to know. *shrug*)

What I did today: dropped off my time card so I will get paid next week, returned and renewed library books, put away laundry, wrote a little, and repotted Sparky, my new California ivy. (Yes, I name my plants. Yes, I'm kind of weird.)

I didn't manage to finish chapter 8 of 'Apartment Manager' -- though I did come fairly close, and the final scene is plotted -- so here's another bit of 'Paint the Town' instead. :-)

Still rated R, this section probably with more justification than the last one.

Paint the Town, part 2 )

And there we are. Hmm. In terms of POV sections, we're only 5/14 of the way through. Hermione and Ginny get 4 POV sections each, while Harry, Draco, and Luna get 2 each. And we start with Hermione, then Ginny, and end with Ginny, then Hermione. Occasionally I do try to pin something vaguely resembling a structure onto my stories. (Well, beyond coherent narrative, that is. I always try for that. But I don't usually write multiple POV stories; honestly, I think this and "Restoration" are the only times I've attempted that in HP fanfiction.)
