heystasa: (IGNORE ME)
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)

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): )


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.




*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.
