Yay, LJ is alive again. I am sadz when it is not. I actually was not particularly suffering from the lack, though, as I spent most of the evening hanging out at my sister's house next door. I watched some gameshow thingie called Singing Bee, and it is kind of the best thing ever.

At the moment, I am drinking coffee. Yay coffee! I haven't actually had any coffee in quite some time as I tend to stick to other caffeinated beverages. I forgot how much I do actually like coffee. ♥

Also? A guy who works in the office next to mine just came up to me to talk about Deathly Hallows, and he is the first non-fannish person I've talked to who thought the epilogue was dumb and did not fit. (And if the fact that there is an epilogue and some people don't like it is a spoiler to you? Get off my internet. Seriously.)

In other news, I wrote a short bandslash fic the other day (it was a comment fic... that took three comments to fit it all) and I'm going to post it here later.

And in other other news, my lil sis comes home from parts afar (okay, so not that very far) today. Due to us both wandering away from home so much lately, I don't actually remember when I last saw her, which is odd.

So, I just finished the book. Yes, I'm slow. I was taking my time with it mostly on purpose.

A few book 7 thoughts )

Entirely aside from all that, I had a great time at the book release party. Hanging out with fans who all have a common purpose is so... warming. ♥

Now I'm going to go catch up with my f-list that I've been avoiding while gathering my own thoughts.

Oh, hi. I just realized I haven't posted for five days. No reason in particular for that.
I guess I've just been wrapped up reading fic and del.icio.us-ing like mad.

My bandom tag is a nice place to be.
I went on a bit of a crazy bandslash reading glut when I first started so now I'm trying to hunt down everything I liked and actually save it so I can maybe find it if I want to re-read it. You know, unlike any other fandom I've ever been in. I suck at keeping track of fic.

In other news, I am seriously stoked for the midnight showing of the new HP movie tonight. I've never actually been to a midnight release for anything, ever, so double cool points. Plus, I'm wearing my shiny new robe that I just finished yesterday. (And by "I just finished yesterday" I mean to say watched as Jen ironed on my patch after Mom finished hemming it after Zoe finished ironing the hems. And after Laura did the bulk of the making. I cut my own hems! And did the neck thingie! I did have some small part in it! And I was totally going to do it all myself, but apparently I spent too long sitting around looking particularly useless and people just started doing stuff for me. That's kind of awesome, actually. Life should always work that way.)

But, yes! Robes! Coolness!

I am wearing a blue shirt and my blue and black converses (my toes are currently rebelling in confusion because I have not worn socks since at least April) to make up for the fact that, though I am a Ravenclaw, my robes are lined with grey instead of blue because blue fabric determinedly did not want to be found when we were searching for some. I almost wish I had a tie, but ties are expensive, yo.

Other things I am excited about:
Mini-vacation in Pigeon Forge this weekend.
Book release next Saturday/book release party next Friday night.
My "Our Lawyers Made Us Change The Name Of This Song So We Wouldn't Get Sued" ringtone. It is the first Fall Out Boy song I ever heard and is quite possibly still my favorite.

Also of note: I changed my moodtheme to one that is Panic & FOB. Woot! [livejournal.com profile] expastic is awesome.

So... apparently there is a new HP&tOotP trailer out?
It looks pretty shiny, actually.
This picture of Daniel Radcliffe naked-ish with a horse, from his upcoming stage show Equus, has apparently existed on the internet for about six hours and it has already been linked on my f-list 3 times. That is impressive.
Damn! I should have left my phone on in class today!
See, when phones ring in my Family Relations class, the prof answers them.
And apparently my crazy-ass brother tried to call me this morning so he could tell me that he was in Salem, Massachusetts. It made him think of me and he thought I would be amused (which I am). But it would have been hilarious to me if he had this conversation with my prof because it would have confused them both greatly.

Then when he got ahold of me later to tell me about it (sadly, no longer in Salem), he told me how disappointed he was that he hadn't been able to find the Diagon Alley-esque shop that's supposed to exist there. He was going to buy me house robes. I told him I'm a Ravenclaw if it ever comes up. And that he probably couldn't find it because he's a muggle.

My family is so cracked.

So, yeah, I made some more icons. Zoe, you might want to pay attention to this.
Mostly Ginny and Ginny with Hermione.

HP Iconses! )

Snarry, eventually:
A Nick in Time, by Tiranog (Snape and Harry get de-aged)
Growing Pains, the sequel (recovering from becoming grown-ups again)
(these stories are mostly cute with a damn big side of angst)

An Unconventional Relationship (link is to part 1, hit 'next entry' to get to further parts) (Snarry, eventually) (harry has weird cleaning obsession)
(this story is mostly angst, with a side order of happy ending)

Catechism <-- crazy harry-gets-totally-fucked-up-by-the-dursleys fic
(this story is not yet finished, angsty as fuck and not happy but kinda moving towards it. i think. maybe.)

Small Fry & Son of Small Fry by Mad Poetess & James Walkswithwind (scroll to bottom of page) (various BtVS characters get de-aged. because 4-year-old vampires are adorable. but don't tell them that)
(cute as hell, with tiny bits of minor angst.)

These links/recs are here partly for my own benefit so I remember where to find them, and partly for [livejournal.com profile] tasukixchichiri's benefit because she needs to read them all, except possibly not all at the same time because that could cause insanity.

HP & the Goblet of Fire was quite awesome. And really, *really* looooooooong! About two hours in, I randomly realized that we had been in there for*ever* and it still wasn't over. But it was great anyway.

I was rather upset by some of the things they took out, but I understand that it was a Damn Long Book and thus cuts just had to be made. The movie did justice to most of the things that were included, which pleased me. And I was very impressed with how well they played up some of the humor aspects (ie- the weasley twins and filch).

I was amazed at how much the kids had grown up, even though I had seen pictures and stuff but it was still rather shocking.

Oh! Ferret! Even better than anticipated!

No Percy, though. *iz sad*

And not nearly enough Snape exposure, though what *was* there was absolutely *golden*

Fifth movie, now, please?

Possibly more thoughts tomorrow if I think of anything else.

Sleepy time now.

My friends are wonderful. And incredibly good at making comment pages cascade - it's almost otherwordly.
I love you guys.

Anyway, I just wanted to say that I watched the second Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire trailer today and it wins at life. I'll post a link later tonight once I get back to my compy and hunt it down.

And I'm way excited about the check I will be getting today. Call me shallow, but I miss money. *cuddles the monies*

Five Ways Remus Lupin Never Raised Harry Potter
*iz melted into a puddle of mushy goo*
I have a weakness for AU's where Harry gets raised by someone other than the Dursleys and this fic hit me *hard* in all the right mushy places.
*coos at the fic* *cuddles it*
ETA *cuddles this fic too* /eta

I drove around BG a lot today *all* by myself. A lot. Because all my friends fell off the planet. *love you guys*
I went to see The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl. Which was mildly entertaining.

Oh, and Zoe made me a new purse! Out of duck tape! Purple and black duck tape! It's is teh awesome. If I can get my hands on a camera, I will take pictures of it so you can all ooh and ahh at how great it is.

And now I need to go hunt down that Angel/Darla vid to "Mandy" that I *know* I've got on my computer *somewhere* and watch it because that song has been haunting me today. It's unnatural, really.

I realized recently that I had never actually watched Grosse Point Blank. So I decided to rectify that tonight. I am in love with that movie. It rocks my universe. <33333

Now I'm gonna get back to reading Harry/Ron/Hermione fic. *points* Fitting icon, non?

Peter Jennings died.

Queer As Folk ended.

Guess which one I'm more upset about.


(...guess the icon gives it away, huh?)

I think Sharon Gless said it best: "It sucks that it's over."

ETA: Oh yeah, and I liked Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. ...except for the part where Christopher Lee and Johnny Depp hugged because my brain kept trying to tell me that it was Sarumon and Jack Sparrow...

ETA2: QAF finale spoilers )

ETA3: The new Showtime series "Weeds" about the suburbanite pot-selling mom? Fucking hilarious. I am in love with it.

ETA4: (well, it's better than spamming my lj with a billion different posts, right?) Anyway, the second Harry Potter movie is randomly on Disney and it occurred to me that I haven't actually watched this one... possibly since it came out in theatres. Crazy. I was like... I don't remember watching *any* of this! o.O;;; (/random)
kaciagemini1013: *random* I am torn - I love the way my lj looks when my computer is set to crazy!high screen resolution, but I have trouble reading the screen from where I normally sit. I want pretty and readable, damnit! Why doesn't the world revolve around me?!? *sob*
Alluring Discord: I'm sorry dear
kaciagemini1013: That's okay. I'm just a whiny brat.

Further Proof of my insanity )

I totally need to be doing my laundry right now. But I think I shall go read more trio fic instead. I <3 the [livejournal.com profile] triofqf.

[livejournal.com profile] potterpuffs is my new crack... and I have no idea how it took me this long to discover it. I now have a lovely spoiler-y background on my desktop. ^.^ Anyway, I now have lots of pretty new icons.

Somehow, whilst I was uploading shiny new icons, I inadvertantly ended up clearing out some ones that I don't really use, to the effect that I ended up with just as many empty spots when I was done as I had to begin with. Hmm. I need to find five more icons. Actually, the problem is not the finding of icons, it's the remembering of what eighty-bajillion things I've said I need an icon of that I haven't gotten to finding yet.
So, if you remember hearing me say/type something about wishing I had an icon of something in particular, now would be the time to comment and tell me what it was so I can get on the locating of an appropriate icon. Please. ;_;
Oh, and if you have specific-icon suggestions, that would be cool.
In fact, if you have ever seen an icon that makes you think of me, show/tell me about it! It'll be fun!
(BTW, Laura, this icon makes me think of you. ^.^)

And another thing... I think I am already tired of my moodtheme, which is tragic really since I spent a helluva lot of time putting it up as it did not come equipped with the handy code which makes the world a better place. I think I might switch to a Draco one I found, at least until I find something better. I *could* pay $9 and get an adorkable Catharsis-y Rremly one, but Zoe said I'm not allowed. And also, I only have $90 to last me the next couple of weeks. Not that I have any actual expenses, per se, but that does not mean I should go spending it on random, useless, *intangible* things... really... I've almost convinced myself. I'll prolly leave this moodtheme uploaded and switch back to it in the fall, but it seems so... superfluous... during the long, hot, Lost-barren summer months.

ETA: And another thing, why the hell am I still awake at 7 AM?!?

Warnings: Minor HBP spoilers

Will make a limited amount of sense if either of the following apply to you:
1. You are not a Harry Potter fan
2. You are not a slasher

But feel free to read anyway.

What the hell is wrong with all the Remus/Sirius 'shippers? )

Also? 'Ship wars are friggin' silly. If canon was the only thing that mattered, there wouldn't *be* fanfic! And if canon pairings were the *only* pairings, fanfic would largely suck. So long live un-conventional ships!

If my f-list wrote HBP by [livejournal.com profile] violet_quill is a frickin' hilarious (completely Spoiler-y!) summary of HBP based solely on the content of spoiler posts on her f-list. It's a pretty amusing look at what fandom finds important. Especially our little corner of it. Yay Snaco!
And three cheers to [livejournal.com profile] gdye_trauda for pointing me at it.

I promise I will stop talking about HP. Soon. Eventually. Sometime before I die. Possibly. Really. I have to, if you think about it- or else I'll have to start paying my Percy icon overtime. ^.^ Then again, he'll hardly complain, will he?
