-The whole Pottermore thing is making me roll my eyes a bit at the PR-stuntiness of it (it's a tantalizing hint! Of Big Things! We know nothing about!), though some of the fandom speculation is fun to watch. I highly doubt it's another book, though you never know of course. What would that hypothetical Potter book even be about? Unless JKR goes "psych, the epilogue was dream sequence! Here is Harry and the gang's eighth year in Hogwarts!", which would be kind of hilarious, Rowling's somewhat limited on what she can write about. The next Gen kids? The MWPP era? Some new OCs in the wizarding world? None of the above are exactly Relevant To My Interests.

-I still haven't found a home for the kitten, and I'm seriously stressing out. Maybe I'll have more luck once it's off the bottle, but keeping it is not an option, and my mother is already hinting at giving it to some acquaintances off Athens who have a big garden with many cats when it's a big bigger (it's not the worst solution, but I'd much rather find it a home where it's allowed to be an indoors cat, simply because of the danger than bigger cats and the outdoors might present). I know I'm already more attached than I should be, despite the fact feeding it is the biggest hassle ever (more milk ends up all over me than in the kitten's stomach) and that it seems to think I'm a big scratching post/tooth sharpener (I'm covered in teeny tiny scratches. I look like I've been attacked by a minuscule ninja).

-I'm supposed to see X-MEN First Class next week, and I can't wait. I feel like I'm missing on ALL the interesting conversations.

-So the official trailer is out, and I'm not sure how to feel about it.

On the one hand, I enjoyed part one, despite my feelings about the HP movies. Still, even from the trailer, I can spot the things that will bother me (ALAN FUCKING RICKMAN. Why must you ruin everything?).

And then there's the fact that this is really it, you know? I know the book series has already ended, and the movies are not new canon like the books were, but it was still something to anticipate, and the discussion/fanworks spike after each was off the good. I just hope the lack of those canon-ish injections won't slow down HP fandom to a crawl. Multifandom interests aside, HP has been part of my fannish existence for almost a decade, and to say I'm kind of attached would be an understatement. ;)

-I've added a bunch of new people since I figured that if I'm at DW most of the time these days, I might as well have something to read. It's mostly people that I meant to add for a while/found through the Network page. I should probably do a proper introductory post one of these days, but it's past 2AM here, so...*waves*.

DH review

I saw DH yesterday (for ONCE Greece didn’t get screwed in terms of HP release dates), though this is the first chance I got to make a post.

Spoilers, obviously )

I can't believe we have to wait a year for the second part. I can't believe I actually care.

-I can only hope this leads to more Dexter/Deb fic


Your result for The Sorting Hat Test...


You scored 32% Order/Chaos, and 33% Moral/Rational

Chaotic Rationality. You don't think much of rules and restrictions; you look at things from an analytical perspective and probably think morality is relative to some extent. Your strength lies in being able to make your own judgments and form your own strategies uninhibited by others; your weakness lies in the wariness other people may have of you, perceiving you as dangerous.

You join people like Theodore Nott, Severus Snape, and Horace Slughorn.

The 4-grid I used to determine this is as follows:

Chaotic Orderly
Moral Gryffindor Hufflepuff
Rational Slytherin Ravenclaw

-I’m currently working through some my HP fic reading, and once again I’m not finding as many EWE fics as I would like.

which led to some random musings on AU )

I desperately need to reread the book. I got through it so quickly the first time, I really didn’t have a chance to digest everything-and the fact I kept banging my forehead against it during the last few chapters didn’t help with my reading comprehension.

It won’t be possible for a few days at least, since my cousin snatched it from me practically the minute I was done. And he’s a slow reader. Buy your own copy, cheapskate!

A few more random thoughts, bearing in mind that the details are still fuzzy.

DH spoilers, now with 40% more capslock )

I don’t know how to feel about it yet.

So I guess that means it’s over  )
