ScaleNewt85 and the Sorcerer's Stone: Ch. 8
ScaleNewt85 and the Sorcerer's Stone Chapter 8: The Potions Master
Newt and her friends quickly learned that they would not be privy to all fields of magic. There was loads of History of Magic to learn, and they learned a few charms and how to duel. It was all very exciting, but they still watched longingly as the real witches and wizards attended their Transfiguration, Herbology, and Care of Magical Creatures lessons.
Newt had been most looking forward to potions, and luckily, that was available to them. Newt and NimbusSpell met up with Lumos for their first lesson. All of them were looking forward to meeting the famous Severus Snape-- or, at least, a charmed shadow-version of himself that had been recreated for the Pottermore experience.
As much as Newt admired Snape's story, hanging out with Harry's-first-year-Snape was pretty unpleasant. His speech about the art of potions was inspiring, but when they set about to brew a simple cure for boils, Newt watched helplessly as her fancy b

ScaleNewt85 and the Sorcerer's Stone Ch. 7: The Sorting Hat
The door swung open at once. A witch clad in emerald green robes stood in the shadows. ScaleNewt strained her eyes. Professor McGonagall? She was one of Newt's favorite witches and she was eager to meet her.
"The firs' years, Miss Rowling." said Hagrid, and there was an audible gasp from the students.
"Thank you, Hagrid. I will take them from here." She held the door wide and the students timidly crossed the threshold. The flagstone floors and flickering torches were just as Newt had always dreamed they would be, yet she hardly noticed them. She'd always thought standing inside Hogwarts would be the most magical moment of her life, but it was dim compared to standing before J.K. Rowling. She was Newt's hero. She brought magic to the muggle world, opened the Pottermore initiative to allow them inside, and now she was greeting them herself, in person.
The new students stood close together, nervous and in awe. Even with the noise

Chapter 6: The Journey From Platform 9 3/4
Rook and Lumos insisted Newt name her new pet newt. She resisted, but as she was called Newt she couldn't very well call the clingy pet "newt" as well. She settled on Ray - she wanted to give it her muggle name, Rachel, but wasn't sure of its gender, so Ray would have to do.
The creature insisted on sitting on Newt's shoulder. What it really wanted was to stick to her face but she fought that pretty hard.
Newt focused on counting down to September 2nd and the special Pottermore trip on the Hogwarts Express. When it finally rolled around, Newt rose with the sun - an amazing feat for her. She, Rook, and Lumos traveled to the station together, eager to leave behind the drudgery of the muggle world and muggle school. They would, of course, have to keep up with their muggle studies, but that seemed a fair price to pay to gain access to Hogwarts itself.
Locating the platform was simple, as it was now marked with half a trolley in the wall. Rook took

The Long Road
The Long Road
I still remember. It feels as if it were last night. Starry crystals on an infinite canvas of black surrounded us. The crescent moon and the pitch black. The red velvet hair around your neck got caught in your scarf. My ears and cheeks were rosy. You always said it was “cute”. It embarrassed me.  I always turn that peachy pink.
The path we walked at the edge of the long road was empty that time of night. It was just us. But I wondered if the stars could hear us. We talked for hours that night. I was afraid your laughing was going to wake people up. I mean you were really loud. We talked for what seemed like forever. Usually about nothing in particular and yet everything that came to mind. Your favorite movies, my favorite pizza, your cat who I heard about every fifteen minutes before then, and my favorite books.  
Then that kiss. Yeah, that stuck with me. I mean, how would it not? That feeling makes you so warm. It was a wave of blissful heat. I even

Interests
My weird little scruffy account probably doesn't warrant this, but I love a quiz. 

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt? Apparently since JUNE 8, 2006. Geeze. I was 16 when I joined. 

  1. What does your username mean? I had just become the youngest colorguard captain in my high school's recent history, and guard was absolutely my life and obsession at the time. The name just sort of came to me at one point, I'm a writer and I liked the way the four words sounded together. That became my name for everything, including my email that I still use. 

  2. Describe yourself in three words. As a writer, I HATE THIS QUESTION. But okay. Ummm... Spunky, Introverted, Passionate 

  3. Are you left or right handed? Right

  4. What was your first deviation? FLAGMAN ppg style by DieHardGuardGirl
    TBH I still love this drawing and I'm sad it was done in days before I had a scanner. The quality is crap! But I love this drawing! 

  5. What is your favourite type of art to create? Hmm. I really like hand-drawing with paper and crap, but it really is time-consuming and I feel I'm not really good enough to justify the time spent on really mediocre drawings like that. I usually only draw "the old-fashioned way" for birthday cards and other gifts for friends. Otherwise I prefer drawing digitally because it's easier and faster, though I do feel my art is even more sub-par when I draw digitally. Basically, I love to draw and have absolutely no confidence in my skills. 

  6. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Comic book. Then Flagman would actually look good. I love "writing" that comic, but drawing it is so hard for me. It's just a format I'm not great at. But I keep at it because I love the story. I'd love it if the story had the graphics it has in my head. 

  7. What was your first favourite?Super PMS Peach by Hail-NekoYasha
    Ahhhhh hahaha I remember faving this. I've never played the game it's referring to, but as a girl going through puberty I related deeply to it. 

  8. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? I don't even know what to tell you, my favorites folder is the most random place. Even more random than my gallery. Um, I like comic strips a lot, and funny things. I also noticed I fave a lot of pieces featuring people with wings. 

  9. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? That would have to be b1nd1 easy. There are many artists I love on here, but hers is the only account where I love every. Piece. I think I fave almost everything she posts. It's never hit and miss, I love everything in that gallery. 

  10. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? Probably either makani to talk Harry Potter and AccioBrain, or BriannaCherryGarcia to talk Disney. I've actually tried meeting Brianna before while I was at Disneyland, but I don't think she was working the day I was there. 

  11. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? That's a weird question lol. Well, real-faker is awesome and has inspired my art style and aspirations a lot. Plus she made me custom RENT shoes that I still wear and love. And Rei-Doll has inspired me to learn how to sew and make my own costumes. Plus she made a beautiful Anastasia necklace for my sister and she wept when she opened it, so that was pretty cool. 

  12. What are your preferred tools to create art? Pens. I hate pencils, as much of a necessary evil as they are. But I love sketching in pen. 

  13. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? Uhhh.......used to be math class. Now business meetings or long boring phone calls. 

  14. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? That one time someone made fan art of my crappy fanfiction. Illustration to Dead Innocence by Mrs-Lovvet-Fan
    I saw it and was like Yes. Now I've made it. I'm famous.

Thanks! If you happen to have the link, let me know! I don't use imgur, so if someone's posing as me I gotta go set the record straight. But if they're just admiring I'd love to see and thank them too! :D
