A little something to take the edge off ... [15 Jul 2005|10:48am]

Phoenix_blue gave me permission to link this here. It's a doujin-style comic strip poking fun at H/Hr fanfic cliches. Phoenix_blue is an H/Hr shipper, so it's anything but mean-spirited. I got a nice giggle out of it; I thought you all might, too. I think with all the tension right now, it's good to laugh at ourselves just a little. :)

It's the "Ask Professor Black" links.

Ok, everybody definitely needs to chill the fuck out. I can't believe some of you are taking these rumours seriously. This is all one big scam, and many people (predictably) fell for it. Some people live for sturring up shit and creating mass hysteria; would it be that surprising that someone has targetted the big ass fandom that is Harry Potter? There were all sorts of supposed "scans" of pages in OotP before it was released, and they all turned out to be fakes. And do any of these rumours sound anything like what JKR would write? Seriously. Think about it. We've got five other books to look back on and compare to. And apparently most of the spoilers have come from Portkey because the big OBHWF sites and forums haven't really heard much about them.

In a couple of days, you're all going to look back on this and laugh. Really, you are.

If this spoiler is true than JK is lame... [14 Jul 2005|03:13pm]

[ mood | gloomy ]

Spoil me, mummy!Collapse )

Visions of a really bad fan fiction are clouding my mind with this book. I may just have my copy sit there for a few days and wait to confirmed spoilers come out so I know if I'm wasting my time,

Seriously, I love HP. I really really do, but AGH! This is killing me.

It's rant time! [14 Jul 2005|01:55pm]

You know who I really can't stand? R/Hr shippers who say that H/Hr has no evidence whatsoever. These are the people who've made this shipping war so nasty. I don't have a problem with R/Hr shippers who actually have the intelligence to say: "Yes, I understand where you're coming from - that H/Hr is possible in canon - but I still don't like it and prefer to ship R/Hr because that's what I believe will happen." Why aren't there more of these people? Where are they all hiding? I'm so sick of being labelled 'massively deluded' just because I (and many, many others) see a relationship developing between Harry and Hermione that goes beyond friendship. I'm an intelligent human being; I know I'm not imagining these things.

At the risk of sounding co-dependent... [14 Jul 2005|12:15am]

Am very new to posting here, so please, don't hate me if this is a lame idea!

To help us all get over the fact that we'll have to take a little hiatus from commenting here, I think it would be nice if we could each supply a little goodie to help us get over the withdrawl (hmm... I didn't really mean for this to sound like methadone). So, each person could maybe post a link to a piece of fanart or fanfic? Preferably, something pretty new. It can be one of your own or a rec. What do you think?

Oh yeah, people should clearly mark the rating so that we don't corrupt (further) the young minds here.

You have two days, so get a move on!

So, any trolls in the house? Who's lurking?

Be honest.

PS: Kids, don't forget to bring me the alcohol and crack. And smores. Those are fantastic.

Referring to that essay bashing us: Does anyone know why bashers *always* decide to scrutinize grammar? Of all things, I never knew. Just looking for something else to bash...Sheesh!</p>

logic of a 10 year old HP fan~exclusive interview from a random 10 year old who IMed me from NJ... [13 Jul 2005|02:59pm]

[ mood | amused ]

At 2:40 PST i recieved an IM from CharlesBarr101. At first i thought "why is charlie dobb iming me, he is supposed to be out of town..." but when i asked who it was they said "my name is charlie! I'm from New Jersey" and then he explained how he found my im (from mugglenet.com's comment page) and then asked me where i was from and i said Los Angeles and then he asked how old am i. This became a bit sketchy so i asked how old he was and he said, to my dismay, 10 years old. When he asked me how old i was again i answered truthfully and said i was 14 years old. From then on is was a whirl wind of horrible Heron worthy spelling and "evidence" that didn't make much sense for actual cannon...

While i write this i am waiting for his reasons why dumbledore will die and his logic still baffles me...Collapse )

That last bit that he said was the funniest really...if you understand his logic behind some of this, please inform me because i'm interested in knowing...i know hes only 10 but he was so full of himself when i was talking to him hes like "I AM THE BIGGEST HARRY POTTER FAN EVER! NO OFFENCE" and such...i put this up because i was pretty much bored...just tell me what you think of it...or we could just make fun of 10 year olds...whichever is fine :)

Haha, another rant. This time it's non-HBP related. ;D

Can anyone tell me where the Harry/Draco pairing came up? I mean, come on. That ship (can it even be justified as a ship? wtf.) makes me squick so bad.

I'm thinking that it was a couple of fangirls, right? Who think Dan and Tom are LIEK OMGZZZZZZ SOOOo)000 HOTTTtT!!1!!!PIE!1! I'm pretty sure it was that...

I mean, I'm no stranger to slash, but I hate this pairing. o_O

But I just thought I might ask anyways, and get your reactions.

The Friendly Mod Post [12 Jul 2005|04:53pm]

[ mood | drained ]

With the quickly looming arrival of HBP, Stella and I have made a few decisions regarding the community.

Obviously, there are many people who have gotten their hands on spoilers. To keep everything under control, please post under an lj cut. None of us have read the book yet and some prefer to remain ignorant until the fateful day, please honor this. Most of you have been doing already, so thank you for that, but if this isn't followed... We will start deleting posts.

Secondly, at around 3pm Pacific time/6pm Eastern time on Friday, we'll be shutting the community down for one week. We'll open again on Monday, July 28, so that people have time to read the book before setting things on fire and starting riots.

Your Mods,

fated_addiction and imaginaryxlight

[ mood | silly canadians... ]

Hey guys straight from mugglenet.com:

"HBP leaked in Canada
Raincost Books, the publisher of the Harry Potter series in Canada, has released a statement regarding a leak of up to 15 copies of Half Blood Prince. The leak occurred when the retailer, the Great Canadian Superstore, accidentally put the copies out for sale. In responds to the leak, Raincost Books has filed an injunction to protect the plot and is urging anyone who obtained a copy to return it until July 16th.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in! "

1) What kind of a name is The Great Canadian Superstore?
2) Like anyone would return it

It has been confirmed from a canadian pal of mine that the main ships in HBP are infact Ron/Aragog, Snape/Justin Finch-Fletchy, and Hermione/Hedwig!

dialogue with daddy [11 Jul 2005|09:26pm]

My dad and I were talking about Harry Potter after watching the movies and I asked him the ultimate shipping question.

Me: Do you think Harry and Hermione should get together or Hermione and Ron should get together? *is out of breath*

Dad: Who's Ron?

Me: *laughs hysterically* He's the red headed kid.

Dad: Oh. I thought him and that girl were brother and sister.

Me: Um... No. Does that mean you think Harry and Hermione should get together?

Dad: Um... I guess. Leave me alone. I'm tired.

GoF Test Screening [11 Jul 2005|08:05am]

[ mood | excited ]

Passing along yet another link!

It seems that Mugglenet managed to get a review of GoF from someone who'd seen a test screening.

Here's the link.

The encouraging thing, I found, is that instead of inserting R/Hr moments, it seems that H/Hr moments were added. Hmm...

Spoilers? [10 Jul 2005|09:57pm]

Apparently a lot of spoilers have been so-called 'leaked' about HBP. :-/ What do you guys think?

Ron rant [10 Jul 2005|02:38pm]

I hate Ron. Why? Because of the way he treats Hermione. I knew people like him in school. The people who were only nice to you when they wanted answers on the chemistry assignment (and the same people who made fun of you in primary school). Since none of them were forced to save me from a troll, none of them became my "friends". Rereading the books, I have read some really hurtful things said by Ron. It makes me want to kick him in the balls!

But he turned around in OotP, didn't he?Collapse )

Canon VOMIT Ship Names [09 Jul 2005|11:55pm]

[ mood | amused ]

I positively adore this community and have commented a few times, but this is my first actual post. It's not a rant, but an activity that I find quite enjoyable and wish to share with the only community that would deem it appropriate.

Fun with ship names!Collapse )

[ mood | curious ]

Ok I just saw this quote on mugglenet from GoF and it made me think:


'If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.' 


Sirius said that in GoF. Now put that with R/Hr friendship/relationship. Hermione is an inferior to him in the wizarding world because-

1) She's a witch/woman

2) She's muggleborn.

Now I don't think Hermione is inferior to Ron in truth. But to the outside world she is. And maybe even in Ron's own mind.

I don't know this just popped into my mind. I wanted to hear what you guys thought about it.
