So. Uh. I appear to have just written Harry Potter fanfiction on my cousin's facebook wall. Because apparently that's the sort of thing I do now.

My Cousin: 
lol here's a random thought: Ron Weasley had a crush on Madame Rosmerta, the barmaid of the Three Broomsticks. Isn't it a little creepy that he and Hermione named their daughter Rose?

No? ok then :P



My reply (for some reason):

“You know what, Ron? Fine. Fine. We’ll name our daughter after the fit barmaid from Honeydukes-” Ron let out a drunken whoop, “- and the next one can be named after a ridiculous crush of *mine*. How does that sound?”

“Perfect,” Ron said, and Hermione let out a frustrated groan and left him to it.

By the time Hugo was on the way, Ron had pretty much forgotten about that night. When people asked about the name they’d picked, he cheerfully told them it was just one that they both happened to really like.  

Hermione let him think that. She was having a wonderful pregnancy; she finally had time to sit through all 9000 hours of Lord of the Rings DVD extras and the Matrix Trilogy Ultimate Collection had just been released on Blu Ray.

All was well.
 

 
(I blame the 2600 words of completely self indulgent and ridiculous Shadow of the Templar fic I stayed up till 2am writing last night, tbh)

So apparently a while ago I wrote a drabble (well, drabble and a half)? This never happens, but I found it on my hard drive today, so, well, here:




Clipped
Episode tag: 504, The End
Gen, Cas centric



It’s nothing really like flying at all, being high.

But then, the way an angel flies doesn’t involve any sort of literal height anyway; they move through the fabric of the universe, not merely through space. Up, down, right, left, don’t mean anything. Earth, to angels, is all one simple field to be manipulated; they pass through it as they wish, wrapped warm in their grace.

It’s all just linguistic, the connection between an angel’s movement and flight, between flying and being high. Castiel knows this, but still sometimes he’s bitterly, achingly disappointed by it; by how little anything in this new human life can ever be like his old one. Language lies.

He quite likes being stoned though. Cool and blissed out is not quite the same as calm, driven and certain, but it’s certainly a lot better than alone, lost and afraid.

OK SO, THIS IS HILARIOUS

So, even though I am totally doing my exam (shutup I really really am), this thing is fun:

Wait so, what? What?

This turned into a draft mini-meta about SPN!God. Woops :/ )

I don't know. It's all just off the top of my head type speculation. This show is so ripe for textual analysis. I want to figure some of this out, look closer at the episodes and do some actual research, but maybe when I've calmed down and taken notes and am capable of constructing normal-person sentences that don't run on into oblivion.

For now, have some more reactions:

WHIMPERING AND FREAKING OUT AND LOL )
------

All in all, I liked the episode. I'm annoyed with how badly season five as a whole was constructed and I think the finale could have had a lot more punch if the lead up to it had been better controlled, BUT, I've liked every individual episode, and I loved the last few to absolute pieces. I think I loved this one too, even if it did sort of feel completely out of place.

I watched it with my TV cushion turtle. He is my friend. We like all the same shows.

We're still very much in a state of

 though.

I am not even going to acknowledge that S5 is OVER FOREVER and there's MONTHS till the next one and WAAAAAAH.

Just watched SPN 4.11, Family Remains.

oh my god. there is a reason i don't watch horror movies, you guys. seriously, what the, oh my god.

I, fucking, sweet merciful crap in -

the absolute shit out of me. what the hell, oh my god. I can't even, jesus. oh my god.

Never watching that again. Seriously.

I mean the tying it in with Dean in hell at the end there was really clever and I can see how they needed something really horrific to go with that and in that way it was really well done, but, jesus frigging christ, it was worse than the One That I Dare Not Name Just in Case She Pops Up in A Freaking Mirror For Reals.

I, just -

WHY DIDN'T ANYONE WARN ME????


heystasa: (Fran awake)

It's quite silly really, this love I have for a slightly (or, ridiculously, even) mad Harry. I know it's more common to see Draco written as the comedic little vaguely unhinged / completely ridiculous one, but I think it's so much more fun (or interesting, if we're talking serious types of unhinged) if it's Harry.

Honestly, I laughed so hard at this fic, in which Harry is obsessed with Malfoy's hair, Hermione and Ron are long-suffering, and plotting and ficuses happen. There is no part of that summary that I could ever dislike.

(Very long haired Malfoy isn't really my thing, so at first I tried to picture it a bit shorter than she describes, but then I realised that the image my brain was throwing up in response to the description as a whole was more a sort of crazy Square-Enix situation with impossibly shaped silver hair and broad shoulders, so then I thought JUST GO WITH IT.)
 

And look, while I'm here and talking about kooky Harrys, here's two of my favourites:

- The Benefits of Breakfast, by [livejournal.com profile] wonkyveela. Like the one above, it's G/PG, and silly. By way of summary, have the first few lines - they're all kinds of wonderful and express the key plot point (jam): )

and

From Another Perspective by [livejournal.com profile] kabeyk. Which is, in the grand tradition of Kabeyk, far more explicit (NC17), and astoundingly well written. She's always funny, always insightful, always making the mundane seem like the most fascinating thing in the world, and has a gorgeous way of working language that always just fucking floors me. This is one of my favourites of her stories, and one of my all time favourite H/Ds. Seriously, I just re-read a bit, and lost all coherency for a few moments because al;jfasl;fj she just, fucking, brilliant, so bloody brilliantly written I can't even. READ IT.

Summary: A bit loopy after the war is over, Harry starts to wonder if maybe he's gay. And then Malfoy turns up.

(Also, her Malfoy in this fic? Possibly one of my favourites ever. THE IMAGERY. She's hit my white button up shirt; stubble; arrogant, petulant arsehole; pale skin with pale hair; and lounging around smoking kinks, some of which I don't even think I had before reading this fic. Dear god the imagery.)

I'm in such a good mood right now. And the cat has moved on from purring while trying to bite me to trying to eat my dressing gown. She's surprisingly strong, but I think I can take her. Muha!

This picture (from the latest fandomsecrets post) made me grin far too much. Combined with my rather unexpected insane giggling reaction to the Draco HBP poster at George st Cinemas the other week, and my delight at reports of how much of a sweetheart he is in his twitter, I'm pretty sure I should take this as a sign that, somehow, I appear to have fallen in love with Tom Felton.

I really have no idea how this happened. I was never that fussed about Malfoy, and don't follow the fandom terribly closely. It must be the hair. He has such pretty hair.* Or the face. I do quite like his face.... And, um. Yes. The grinning is happening again.

Reeeeally want to see the new movie now. Already wanted to see it for the inappropriate comments potential, but now for the silent inner-fussing that's sure to come whenever he's on screen as well.

...

...

... STOP GRINNING, WOMAN!


________-
*Not in the new movie though. Dear god what is wrong with the hair people on these films? They've done the same thing to Daniel Radcliffe (who I've found ridiculously adorable since his first appearance on Rove a couple of years ago revealed him to be a total dork. Also, there was the play-flirting and kiss with Rove, which was just far too funny and cute. I like him very much, though not in a crushy, fangirly way - even though he's quite a nice looking boy when he's doing his own damn hair), and I just don't get it.

By the way, I should have recced this ages ago, but only just remembered it.

Anyone who likes Doctor Who, or Blackadder, or neither, but especially both, should go read Just Impediment - a Who-Blackadder crossover, with an absolutely joyously perfect Edmund voice and spot-on Ten.

BY THE WAY.

I was already pretty excited about this. Despite the bad track record of game to movie adaptations in the past,  this one shows promise, and I can't help but be thrilled over anything involving one of my first games and favourite franchises (and my first fandom, even), especially seeing as though it revolves around my favourite character.

However, this has just brought on a whole new spate of yesyesyesfeckyes.

JIN. A STREETFIGHTING, BLOODY KNUCKLED, POSSIBLY EVEN SLIGHTLY BADASS BUT VERY DEFINITELY DISHY EITHER WAY, CORRECT LOOKING JIN!

JIIIIIIIN.

THIS IS A SICKNESS

WHY?? WHY DO I HAVE THAT MANY? IT'S NOT LIKE I CAN EVER USE THEM ALL

AND ALL BUT ABOUT SEVEN ARE OF GUY BURNET

SIX OF THOSE SEVEN ARE FUNNY THINGS GUY BURNET HAS SAID

IT IS VERY HARD TO PICK ONE ICON INVOLVING GUY BURNET WHEN ONE HAS ONE HUNDRED AND ONE OPTIONS, EACH AS APPEALING AS THE LAST

WHY MUST HE BE SO ATTRACTIVE TO ME??

A SICKNESS, I TELL YOU

OH MY GOODNESS.

Just rewatched Time Crash, the children in need special, after linking [livejournal.com profile] ineptshieldmaid and [livejournal.com profile] phrasemuffin to it, and that whole exchange about the Master -

TEN: Oh! He just showed up again, same as ever.
FIVE: Oh no, really? Does he still have that rubbish beard?
TEN: No, no beard this time. Well, a wife

- asjfgj;fdg;jhakshfhooooomygod, how much better that line is now I know what "having a beard" means. THE HO-YAY, GOOD LORD THE HO-YAY!




eeeeheehee, double entendre!

heystasa: (Fran awake)

I realise that, given how large a proportion of my flist are into Potter slash, a lot of you have probably already seen this, but I was just going through the videos on my iPod, and, really, this is something EVERYONE IN THE WHOLE WORLD EVER should see BECAUSE OMG THE WRONG. THE BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT WRONG.

Hermione made a noise somewhere between disgust and anguish. “Harry, if no one else will represent Malfoy... you have to.”

Hee hee. I love my ship.

It's so predictable.




 

The fic is here, and so far not too bad.

ETA: Okay, so the fic turned out to be really nice. I even reviewed, which I rarely do. So I thought, since the link was already here, I may as well C&P the review and make a rec!

Title: Breakdown
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione, assorted minor characters.
Summary: Draco Malfoy’s reappearance years after the Last Battle wreaks havoc on Harry’s carefully organized life.
Word Count: 11,182

Rec: I was so loving all the little pieces the author had assembled and the delicate way they were handling things, that I actually exclaimed "no!" when the page wouldn't scroll any further and I realised I'd reached the end.

A really lovely fic. The little touches of humour and emotion are great, and Harry's perspective is wonderfully written. There's a real impression of him and of his world, and the writing manages to be sort of gently squee-inducing without being at all sappy. It's subtle, just giving us what there is as it is.

It's really nicely measured and was a delight to read. The anonymous thing is a bugger at times like these - I want more!

It's a very silly thing to do, but hey, I had time & it's a bit of fun, and in the end it was LIKE IT READ MY SOUL.

 
Squee! )




Entirely unrelated, buy omifeckinggod Randy Newman is white? When did that happen? I was so sure I'd seen him before, and he wasn't white then. Was he?  O_o   Wtf, self?

1. I can't stop eating these Mars filled Pods things. I buy them thinking I'll ration them as treats, but then I just munch on them constantly. I have no self control. Damn seductive caramel.

2. I have to get seriously working on my Games and Simulation assessment. I am making a text adventure game. It is set in Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. There are Oopa Loompas. It is a group project and we've got it quite nicely planned out. All I have to do is start coding my part. IT WILL BE EASY AND FUN BUT I AM STILL PUTTING IT OFF. WHY DO I DO THIS???

Dear Brain,
                    Can we please stop with the anxiety? It will be very difficult for me to pass my courses if a great whopping wall of terror is erected every time I contemplate doing an assessment. I actually really enjoyed the last essay I wrote, you know. And do you remember all that pride when I handed it in on time? Wasn't that nice? Don't you want that again? Come on, kiddo, let's get adjusting. That's how you're supposed to work.


3. My flat needs vacuuming, I could make up a load of washing, and there are clothes flung everywhere. Clean up day soon, YAY! 
I loves domestic chores. They makes me feel real. And it's nice to see the floor. I have such a nice floor.

4. So, last night (as well as having a lovely night out with a friend at Circular Quay for a birthday dinner) I actually met someone from fandom in real life! Am not the only insane HP slash fangirl in Australia! Look, look, I have proof! Muhaha!! And I have made a new LJ friend! Hiiiii!! *waves enthusicastically* Will do proper greetings and exchanging of recs etc when I have taken care of point 2.  Must... do... uniwork. It-will-be-fun, dammit!

5. Have to cook tonight. I refuse to have toast or cereal for tea and I've run out of left overs. Which means I have to wash pots. Curses.

6. My god this album. It's amazing. It flows and crashes and screams and whimpers and settles and brakes and falls and lifts and it's impossible not to go with it. He has the most honest voice - more like speaking than singing, and all the while trying not to fall to pieces, filled with cracks and strange little screams - and the most sweet, exposed, and devastatingly lovely lyrics. ('The world's got me dizzy again/ you'd think after twenty-two years I'd be used to the spin,'  'It's not something I would recommend, but it is one way to live,'  'This is the first day of my life,/ Glad I didn't die before I met you.' ) 

The songs - lyrics and music - are so beautifully complex, even the deceptively quiet ones. There is a real simplicity to what he sings about, he doesn't romanticise, but sings about things at a very basic level, creating such honesty. It's like, he's describing things as they are, as they actually feel, but somehow it sounds so breathtaking. And the music cascades in from nothing, crashes down and sweeps through or is so silent you forget it's there, you can only focus on his voice. That sort of honesty and reality is so rare and precious.  It's impossible not to be affected. 

The closest thing I can think to compare it to is The Cure - Robert Smith has that same stuttering honesty in his voice, and that same childishness and wonder in his lyrics, and that same cascading lushesness in some of his music. In fact, the stereo is set so that Disintegration is the next album to play after Bright Eyes finishes. 'Plain Song' is a perfect way to follow up I'm Wide Awake..., it too, never fails to be stunning.

7. I'm always pinning after my pets, wishing I could take them with me to Sydney. I am acquainted with all the neighbourhood cats, and am sure to say hello when I pass them. So my mummy made me a cat so I wouldn't be lonely.


I love my Mum.

I had a moment the other morning, lying in bed, just about to wake up. I thought to myself, it's feels like I've barely seen anyone (my family) the past few days. Will have to spend some time wth them today. But then I opened my eyes and remembered. I actually hadn't seen them for the past few days at all, because Easter was over and I was back at uni again. I felt so dissapointed. I really wanted to see them. But then I woke up, and got on with things, and laughed at how easilly I'd gotten mixed up. 

I'm fine, really I am. But it's hard sometimes, getting used to not having them around. That morning, filled with sleep, I really missed them. Sometimes I just really want for them.

[personal profile] tjwritter, I hope that this somehow answers your questions, and, at the very least, there are some great fics linked in there if you're new to the fandom.


Now, I desparetly need to go to bed. It's Christmas Eve in the morning, and I have to get up early to work, and do many a wonderful but tiring Christmassy thing. 
To all a good night, and a very Merry Christmas/ lovely holidays!
