tortoisegirl: (Dudley's moment of hearwarming)
Saw the new Harry Potter movie yesterday, and I have some thoughts!

First of all I went with my mom and since this graphic's been circulating recently it came to mind:

Because I was 14 or 15 when I saw my first HP movie in theaters with my mom and sisters, and now I'm seeing the last one with her at 23 (and I'll be 24 when the 2d part come out!). Also, seeing all the little kids in the theater it struck me that the whole Harry Potter series started before these kids were born. I felt old. :(

Onward to the movie though.

Spoilers for the movie )

I never really addressed this here before, but since this is a personal journal and a good part my friends list is from fannish places I'll just clarify that all the personal posts are open for comments from anyone. Doesn't matter if we don't know each other in person or know each other that well. Of course no one's obligated to comment, but just in case folks were wondering about my stance on that. I always like to hear from people :)

And today's 30 day meme prompt is fandom-related anyway!

30 Day Meme
Day 14 → A fanfic

One I found years ago that's stuck with me because it's a magnificently hilarious, cracked-out mess. First Encounter, the story of the Hogwarts Castle and the Hogwarts giant squid and how they find love~ Or at least find tentacle sex. And um, I guess it's rated R for...sex between a building and a squid, so be aware of that if that's not to your tastes. And it's gay sex, because apparently both Hogwarts and the squid are male. Who knew. I came across it here at [livejournal.com profile] pottersues.

To keep up the theme, new Deathly Hallows trailer!
Dead Dumbledore! Bill and Fleur's wedding! Dobby ;_; OMG Ron and Harry yelling at each other. I love you Ron even when you're being a jerk. I love the last shot, with the lightning bolt going into the logo and the theme music. Can't wait!

And you know how with TV shows people will say "Haha, X and Y should have their own show together!". Apparently the Lost creators were reading all the message boards with that sentiment, because Locke and Ben are getting their own show. Okay, it's not really the same characters from Lost (they're ex-government agents in this one), but the same actors. The two best actors from the show, and the ones a lot of people were saying they wanted to see more of together. Props to J.J. Abrams for giving the people what they want!
