So I was bored today and decided to practice making some banners. Surprisingly my crappy photoshop substitute didn't crash on me. Idk what to do with them though because a) they were for practice aka are not that awesome because the caps I used were on the lower end of the quality scale, and b) they combine Deathly Hallows pt. 1 with Better Off Ted quotes and I'm pretty sure no one knows a thing about Better Off Ted (except [livejournal.com profile] _samalander).

So under the cut are twelve banners for you to look at/use/ignore. I just wanted to show someone because I'm very proud of myself of doing something today instead of just sitting around in my underwear staring at my cats.

I got the idea from [livejournal.com profile] hogwarts_elite because they just had a banner contest involving combining Harry Potter and a different fandom using an image from one and a quote from the other. Better Off Ted is pretty much made up of perfect one-liners, so it's good for that kind of thing imo. Banners under the cut, all quotes from the pilot ep and all images from the seventh movie.

It's wrong to freeze someone who came to your daughter's birthday. )

I think I'm going to rewatch Better Off Ted tomorrow because now I'm in the mood to watch Ted and Veronica banter.

Also I've been hungry all day despite the fact that all I've done is eat and make crappy banners. STOMACH WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?

First [livejournal.com profile] classictrekbb mix is done! It's another story about tribbles. I think I'm obsessed with them right now.

In other news...just a few more hours and then SO MANY CREYS.

Spent the weekend staring mindlessly at the computer screen at work. On Sunday I got off and really didn't want to be alone at home so I called Beth up and wheedled Rob and we all went out for Mexican and ice cream. There was a creepy guy at Taco Cabana staring at us, but considering our decision to leave lead to us getting ice cream, I am a-ok with that.

Monday saw me doing some shopping with Mom and we found some shoes for Lauren's wedding. Hopefully they'll go with the dress. I was kind of nervous buying them since I haven't even seen the dress in person, but they were what Lauren wanted (white sandals with a stacked "wood" heel/wedge) and were on super sale. Crossing my fingers they'll work because it'll be too late to return them by the time I get the dress.

Today was A Very Not Good Day. My asthma's been bothering me all day and starting late afternoon I started feeling the effects of not breathing. Felt so worn out that I decided it would be a Lump Day and settled in Mom's room to watch Merlin. I also discovered her blu-ray player can play Youtube videos so I looked up some Harry Potter music videos and almost cried. Then I took a shower and then my body started hurting. Somewhere in the middle of all of this I managed to drag myself up to do a load of laundry so I'd have something to wear to work tomorrow. That is huge.

And then I rewatched Turn Left and I have so many feelings. SO. MANY. FEELINGS.

And now I am staring at the clock and trying to will myself up to clear my bed off so I can go to sleep because I have work tomorrow morning.

Got the new layout (mostly) done. A few things I may tweak but all of it just personal preference stuff. I don't think anything is broken.

It is very lightly Slytherin themed~ with a rotating header. Seven different banner images, changes randomly when you refresh. (Although since it changes randomly, sometimes it changes to what was already there.) All quotes from the last book.

Guys. Seriously. What am I going to do with myself after Part Two comes out? I think I may die.
Fandom: Harry Potter
Subject: Severus Snape/Lily Evans
Title: Never a Coward
Warnings: Making this mix made me cry. Seriously. And considering how rarely I cry, I thought it deserved a warning.
Notes: This is for [livejournal.com profile] danica_enjolras, who tells me she has "a soft spot for Sev/Lily." So, just in time for the holidays, I present to you a tear-jerker of a mix, dedicated to Snape and his one-sided love for the woman who made him good.

tracklist under cut )

Mix + covers @ dropbox (.zip)

Title: Good morning, I Kneazle You
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters: Albus Potter/Scorpius Malfoy, with an appearance by a very cuddly kneazle
Summary: Al just wants to have some early morning fun. But someone has other ideas...
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] schmoop_bingo: "cuddling with pets"

It's not that Albus hates kneazles. He just hates this kneazle. )
Title: The Wedding Not-Date
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters: Albus Potter/Scorpius Malfoy, Teddy Lupin/Victoire Weasley, Lily Potter
Summary: Al invites Scorpius to Teddy and Victoire's wedding.
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] schmoop_bingo: "wedding – first dance"

In which Malfoys have pride and Scorpius absolutely does not play footsie or get sappy. )
Current Mood: accomplished
Title: Hold the Butterbeer and Chocolate Frogs, Please
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters: Scorpius Malfoy/Albus Potter
Summary: When Albus needs a break from studying for O.W.L.s, Scorpius knows
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] schmoop_bingo: "kissing it better"

The weather is terrible out there. )
Title: I Can Help You There
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters: Albus Potter, Scorpius Malfoy
Summary: Everyone assumed when Scorpius Malfoy started school at Hogwarts, that he would continue his father's rivalry with Harry Potter's sons. Albus Potter, however, has other ideas.
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] schmoop_bingo: "first fight – making up"

You don't want to go making friends with the wrong sort. )
Fandom: Harry Potter
Subject: Ron Weasley/Hermione Granger
Title: Always the Tone of Surprise (But Only for You)
Notes: This is a gift for [livejournal.com profile] cheapen, who is "a bit obsessed" and needed something to feed her inner fangirl. I made this mix with the seventh book in mind, but I think it can also work more generally in terms of their relationship and it's evolution throughout the books.

DH movie spoilers. NO. REALLY. Even if you've read the book. )

I finished rereading the book right before I had to get dressed and leave so I was crying for hours, while reading and then while watching the movie.

I. Loved. It.

What'd y'all think?

spoilers possibly in comments, jsyk

Oh god guys oh god. Why the hell are my cats so cute. Bernie was just sitting there being a cat and I put his little blue ball between his wee little feet and he couldn't figure out where it had gone because he's so fat. Aaaaaaaaaah I love cats.

Rereading the part of Deathly Hallows with Dromeda Tonks in it and I totally teared up when Harry tells Hagrid Hedwig was killed. I am totally going to have to reread these books before the next movie comes out.

Aw fuck Bernie just looked over here with these huge kitty cat eyes aldkjsldlsdkjslkjfs

Writing Harry Potter fic again but I'm stuck. Anyone familiar with the books interested in helping me out? It's been so long since I've written anything for HP I'm kind of rusty and not sure where to go with it. It's Draco Malfoy/Astoria Greengrass if that makes a difference.
24 May 2010 @ 06:22 pm
Does anyone else ship the BAMF that is Neville Longbottom with Luna Lovegood?

Also, are any of you in any active HP comms? I'm think I need to stop mourning The Deathly Hallows and get my ass back into this fandom while we still have two movies left.
Current Mood: geeky
Title: We Will Inherit the Earth
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters/Pairing: Hermione, Harry, Ron
Rating: G
Notes: No specific place in continuity for this fic, just sometime after book one and before the epilogue of the seventh. Spoiler free.

Intangible things like those that required capitalization and dramatic music... )

Harry Potter tonight. I need to figure out what I'm going to wear already. XD

Apologies for the lack of updates, folks. Life has caught up and has decided to just grab me and drag me by the heels. The mess and confusion that lies in Life's wake as I scuttle to stay in line with it is quite glittery, much as I'd imagine those Sparkly Vampires to be.

For those of you out of the Facebook loop, on Independence Day I got into a car wreck while driving Mom's car. I owe her a new one (More specifically, another car. She doesn't seem to care if it's used.). Money will be tight for a while but I'll get by. There's a very nice Corolla I saw the other day and I'm leaning towards that.

She finally found a full-time job so I've taken over her work at the college on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. I have to be there by 7:30 so I'm really kind of hating that. Plus, it's freezing in the building and right now I'm wearing a thin summer dress and totally regretting passing up those nice thick jeans in my drawer. I picked up some hot tea downstairs though so that's kind of helping.

Now on to the important stuff.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince tonight.

I really want a shirt that says, "I'm the Half-Blood Prince" on it. I wish I had more time. I'd print a bunch and sell them at the door of the theatre. I'm sure they'd sell like crazy.

As it is, the Beauteous Beth and I shall be wearing our Snape shirts. Although I am kind of torn because I wanted to buy the new Bellatrix shirt I saw at Hot Topic. But whatever. I'm going to buy a car instead. Although I am kind of bummed that I can't keep the car for myself. I have no idea what Rob will be wearing but I wish we could find some way to make him match us. I feel like Beth and I are Harry Potter super-dorks and he's just some guy that enjoys them. Idk. Maybe my impression is wrong?

It's so weird to think that the books are over. J.K. has added to the apocrypha a bit by writing Tales of Beedle the Bard but it honestly just did not have the same significance the rest of the books did.

And I feel like I'm being pulled in a million directions fandom-wise. Harry Potter was one of the first things that I ever fangirled over hard. I think the next thing after that was Fullmetal Alchemist, and they've recently rebooted that franchise. I've only seen the first episode of the new series, but I loved it and I definitely want to see more. Add into that how heavily I've gotten into Star Trek and comics lately and... Well, I just feel overwhelmed with all of the information there is to take in right now. I feel like I need to take a vacation from life just to stay caught up in everything that is happening everywhere. I never even knew that an advanced preview of Half-Blood Prince was going to happen until just two hours before that was supposed to start. I completely forgot about Blackest Night even though I've been wanting to pick that up. I've barely touched the [livejournal.com profile] st_xi_kink even though I'm supposed to be helping to archive that bad boy. OH GAWD AND THEN THERE'S LOLITA AND I STILL NEED TO GET CAUGHT UP ON FMA.

How is it that I let my hobbies become like chores? I'm trying to reorder things in my mental hierarchy. I just tend to get very over-excited about things easily. I just need to cut back. Once school starts I won't be able to stay up until 2 or 3 in the morning squealing over whatever the heck is going on online, despite the fact that the internet is serious business (oh my gawd).

I need to make an appointment to get another tetanus shot. I keep cutting myself open at work. But it's hard because right now my mom gets first dibs on my truck until I buy her a new car, so I'm stuck up a river with no paddle. :[

AND OH GAWD I JUST DROPPED MUFFIN CRUMBS DOWN MY DRESS. D: I fail at life so hard sometimes.

And now I can't remember what else I wanted to say, so I guess I'll update this whenever my head stops spinning.

Love love love love all of you guys so much ♥
