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!

Thanks, *hugs fic link to chest,* watchmen fandom has instilled a love of tentacles, blue penises, owls, and dirty yellowing y fronts. And also for clarifying about commenting, I'm probably being silly about it because I like comments myself! Hallows looks awesome, and one of the things I like about the final book is how previously minor characters step up to the plate.

I generally think the same thing about commenting, where I'm uneasy about commenting unless it concerns me or the person says it's okay, but then there's this weird disconnect where I think that people will figure out that it's okay for them to comment on my stuff. Your mention of it was a kick that, duh, I shouldn't expect people to read my mind about that ;)

And YES! to the minor characters showing up in the 7th HP book. Sadly, I think minor characters are easy to cut for movie-making purposes, so I'm not expecting to see all of them. Luna's father and house are in the trailer so at least we know she's still in it.

I really liked Luna in the books, but also Ollivander--good choice of John Hurt for that initially minor role. I remember an article mentioning how they consulted with JK Rowling about casting and what may happen in the future books and thinking that, aside from the openness of top grade British actors to taking on minor roles (the Shakespearean tradition of ensemble troupes), it was a good indication that these peripheral characters would take on a slightly larger role later on.
