I cannot believe that River Tam beat Miss Piggy in the Home Team votes. This is just astonishing.

To make up for it, please console yourselves with this Time article: Tickle Me Obama: Lessons from Sesame Street.

In other news, I saw Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince! Due to a difference of opinion, JKR and I parted ways at about chapter two of this book, and as a result I have not read the final two! This may have been an issue for me in this movie if I hadn't had the internet keeping me informed in advance!

some spoilery thoughts mostly on Snape, and the noble and most ancient house of black, and then I babble about how awesome Emma Watson is )

In other other news, I miss writing about Narnia! Maybe since filming has started, and I've settled into living in this VERY COLD CITY I could think about writing something.

Or maybe watching some Pretender. Hmm.

I am too busy for life's pleasures (fic, and lj), but last night I went to see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and flist, I came out of it with the following impressions:
  • Luna Lovegood was perfect
  • I love every Weasley ever, except perhaps Percy
  • CHO I LOVE YOU (and your Scottish accent)
  • The trailer for The Golden Compass is amazing, I cannot wait to see it
  • I should maybe write more real person liessss about Emma Thompson and Alan Rickman, y/n?

And now I have to go out again, ugh. I would just like a weekend at home, is that too much to ask?

Our Own Legends in the Silence by Pen
Harry Potter, Charlie Weasley, G.

100 words for the dragons.

When the moon is dark, Charlie steps out of his tent and finds the grounds full of people. He thinks at first that he's still asleep, for when he listens he hears nothing he can understand; he concentrates, realises the translation charm has faded.

He does not renew it; he floats on words he cannot understand, their meanings made clear via gestures and smiles.

Above the crowd, a dragon rears, roars; flame rises from its mouth and the firelight reflects off its cold scales. The crowd laughs; smiles fondly and exchanges blessings.

He wishes all could love the dragons so.

I don't know how I feel about this. A Cedric and Cho fanfiction page that has what seems to be a complete list of links to fics written about Cho and Cedric. And I suppose it's like me compiling my lists or whatever, but still, it throws me a little to see links to my fics there.
ALSO, on that note, why is that Out from Under is specifically listed as "Cho's POV"? Why does that need to be specified? It is a Cho and Cedric page! Why is primacy then given to Cedric's POV? HELLO HP FANDOM WE'RE STILL HAVING ISSUES HERE.

Now that I have seen the Narnia movie, why is it that NO ONE mentioned James McAvoy was basically playing Leto Atreides again, except as a faun instead of a Dune Worm?


This post by [ profile] ladyjaida is AWESOME, with some fabulous points and flailing re: the movie. Also, she made some William Moseley icons. And here she talks about how creepy it is that they've been adults and now they're kids again (I HAVE TOTALLY WRITTEN FIC ABOUT THAT, BITCHES)

AND I want you to talk about Christmas. I am not Christian (if pressed, I'm unlikely to actually talk about my religion at all), but I celebrate Christmas as a time to eat non-stop, get presents, and give presents, and not go to work. I watch A Muppet Christmas Carol at my parents' house with my sister, and The Nightmare before Christmas at my own house. I have lots of picnics and lunches with friends, and become obsessed with making something or other. This year's obsession is making things out of felt (there will be pictures in a bit). On Boxing Day I go to see a movie, and this year there will be more seeing of family and having lunches on that day, too. So, waffle about yours for a moment.

In conclusion, I wrote Narnia fic last night, and I am writing another one now, and you can't have any of it because Claira is at work, and therefore cannot beta it yet. The end.
bantha_fodder: ([bsg] precious prince - carrielh)
A Rec: That bitch Dee has written Reprehensible, thus throwing into stark light my inability to write as brilliantly as her ever. The big ho. The fic I have recced is Cedric/Pansy (I KID YOU NOT AND IT IS ALL MY FAULT), Cedric/Cho. And it is awesome. UGH.

Some Icons: From the Tokyo GoF premiere.

A Trailer: The trailer for X3 looks awful, and I fear for my beloved franchise, but at the same time I a - cannot wait to see it, and b - can feel my love of Pyro/Rogue rushing back to me post haste.

A Rumour: That Bob Hoskins will play the Penguin, and Lachy Hulme will play the Joker, in the next Batman. That casting would be AWESOME.

An Article: More on Narnia and religion.

A Thing: I want to do the photo meme. So, three things you want me to take photos of. I reserve the right to not take photos of some things, though, on the grounds that I'm contrary. Also, Ash would really, really, really like you to request photos in her lj.

And now I suppose I should finish this fic before everyone goes to bed.

Japanese Community groups protest casting of Non Japanese in film and calls for boycott of film. So. Japanese people are protesting the use of Chinese and Malay actors to portray Japanese people? GOOD. I want to see this movie, I really do, but I hate hate hate the concept of an "Asian" conglomerate - I am all for forwarding the Chinese (and yes, the Malay) agenda, but DUDE. DUDES. Honestly.

Huh. Okay, I was going to write fic now, but I suspect there will be A Rant shortly.
bantha_fodder: ([hp] snap - _mesmerismicons)
this post contains no spoilers.

i just saw the movie, and OMG. OMGOMGOMG. Everything I want to say, my buddy Ash has already said (her post contains spoilers). I agree with everything. ESPECIALLY THE THING ABOUT THE MUSICAL.

My evening went like this: Arrive home from work, 20:20. Help partner finish cooking dinner. Just as we're serving it, at 20:40, we decide to go see the 21:30 showing of HP4.

SO, the only thing I've read on my flist (because I got about three posts in before I had to put it down and run for the car) is Ash's post. I haven't actually read my flist for THIRTEEN LONG HOURS. And now I am going to bed.

Now I am going to bed, when what I really want to do is write more fic about Cho and about Cedric, because they are so AWESOME. And also the twins.


All I want to do is write fic (I have SO MANY IDEAS. This includes for Narnia as well as HP), but what I am going to do is go to bed.

I want to wake up to flailing and discussion and fic ideas in the comments, bitches.

The end.

pee ess I assume that there will be spoilers in the comments to this post.
bantha_fodder: ([roswell] aliens in the diner)
Fic rec, I suppose: Not Your Every Day Infatuation. NC-17, the most wacked pairing ever. Seriously. Read it.
And Eighteen, a Katie/Robert fic. Dee fails for not bringing this to my attention.
Uh, more fic: a thing about Blaise that Kassie wrote, containing the awesome paragraph of “I was being reflexively negative. I’m sure that if you’ve all kept yourselves alive, then you will probably continue to. But if Potter leads the attack on Lucius, I’m hiding behind you.” The reflex to brighten Longbottom’s mood strikes Blaise as a fundamental shift in his personality. He’s going native. As well as this: You’re becoming very direct and obnoxious. Are there Hufflepuffs in your little cabal? which sums up Hufflepuffs perfectly (I love Hufflepuffs to distraction, at the moment).

Artwork of Jadis, before she became the White Witch. Absolutely stunning artwork.

Chloe/Lex vids OF JOY. Seriously. I love every single one. And there are two (TWO OMG) Chloe/Bruce and Chloe/Lex vids. OMG AWESOME. (direct links to the Chloe/Bruce Chloe/Lex OMG JOY here and here. The second one especially is awesome)

A Note:
There's one of those memes going around, one of those, if you're reading this, if your eyes are passing over this, even if we never speak memes, and every time I see them, I always think that it's so delightfully worded that the intention is to guilt me.


It's not yet December (hour and a half away), but the promise I made to myself was that I could post my wishlist when I finished it, so long as I was thoughtful about every wish. I've been composing this list for three weeks now, so I think that's pretty damn thoughtful. Also I'm sad, and I think posting it will cheer me up.

If you've never heard of the Fandom Wishlist, I can't be bothered looking for the link but it was started by [ profile] tartanshell, and basically, you post your list, and then surf around lj and look at other people's lists, and fill as many wishes as you can/want to.

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE fic or icons of the following:

1. Katie Leung/Robert Pattinson (HP)RPF. OMG SHUT IT.
2. Zoey/Charlie (from the West Wing). A happy ending.
3. CJ and Toby (also TWW, but DUH) have been friends for years and years, through all sorts of shit, and not seeing eachother, and all the rest. My heart got broken a couple of weeks ago by this pairing, and I want someone to fix it for me, because CJ and Toby are my OTP to end all OTPs. It cannot end this way.
4. Chloe and Lex (Smallville) taking over the world.
5. Michael and Nikita (from LFN) in the Colonial Fleet. Any LFN fic at all, actually.
6. Miss Parker and Jarod, and the battles they fight that they will never, ever win (OMG The Pretender I LOVE YOU).
7. Karl/Miranda (LotRPF). Fun and light and so fucking easy going. There will never be a list of requests, written by me, that will not feature this pairing. I find it hard to believe I don't have an icon of Miranda, but there you go.
8. Music.
9. Anything about Cho Chang. Or the Hufflepuffs. Or Ravenclaw.
10. Penguins

The end. Go to bed. Do not pass go. Do not collect two hundred dollars.

Today I hit 200 friends of. I'd like to do something special, like offer to write fic for everyone, but a) i do that every day anyway, and b) to make a big deal of it seems kind of wanky. This particular journal has been in existence for just over a year, but I've been on LJ for about four years now. I was a big fat dork then, and I'm a big fat dork now, so whatever.

I owe several people comments, and I owe one person a beta. I am actually, really sorry that I suck at any sort of meaningful correspondence, but I've been so busy this weekend, that it was a struggle to post today's [ profile] galacticanews. Of course, busy as I was, that didn't stop me from reading Wisteria's Arrested Development/BSG crossover, or ranting at people, so I guess it's just a matter of prioritising. I tend to do the low thought necessary work first, and then the stuff that requires more thinking later. Hence betaing and replying to comments gets left behind. But I will get to it. All of it. Tomorrow, hopefully.

OMG Yuletide. I should start that, so I'll probably be trying not to write anything else until that's done.

I have a bunch of links I'd like to share, but before I do, I'd like to make a special mention of [ profile] koalathebear, who is a delight to read, and makes me feel guilty about Being Chinese and Not Speaking Mandarin Very Well. Tomorrow, in an effort to actively make myself a better person, instead of reading HP+HBP at work, I will be reading HP+PS in Chinese. (PS KoalaTheMarsupial: icons from Muppet Christmas Carol. Text is a bit crap, but the bases are lovely, and I thought of you)

Okay. So.

There is no possible way for Katie Leung to get any cuter.
