So I was scrolling through a number of HP communities that I used to frequent when I was active in the fandom several years ago and a lot of them are dead. What are the good, active HP communities on LJ right now? Or has (what's left of) the fandom moved elsewhere?
So I saw DH Part Deux on Friday night and then immediately went home and reread Epilogue -- my slash parody of the DH epilogue that I wrote a few days after the book was published in 2007.
If I had to update the fic based on the latest movie, I would just add that – 19 years later – Harry, Ron, Hermione and Ginny still look early to mid-20s, except that they all have bad hair and shop for all their clothes at Walmart. Oh and Draco hit a wall and looks 50.
Well, it's been about a year since my last update, but I'm still alive and kicking. I am back in New York now. I saw HBP (which was hilariously bad in my view) and have been working on some original writing. Maybe I will return to slash at some point. I know one thing -- I'm not going to go over to the Twilight fandom, as my loyalty lies with HP.
For those of you who are still heaging out in LJ land, say hi. And pls let me know if you have some cool new icons. I could use some new ones.
A man was walking along a California beach and stumbled across an old lamp. He picked it up and rubbed it and out popped a genie. The genie said, "OK, OK. You released me from the lamp, blah blah blah." This is the fourth time this month and I'm getting a little sick of these wishes so you can forget about three. You only get one wish."
The man sat and thought about it for awhile and said, "I've always wanted to go to Hawaii but I'm scared to fly and I get very seasick. Could you build me a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over there to visit?"
The genie laughed and said, "That's impossible. Think of the logistics of that. How would the supports ever reach the bottom of the Pacific? Think of how much concrete... how much steel. No, think of another wish."
The man said "OK" and tried to think of a really good wish. Finally, he said, "I've been married and divorced four times. My wives always said that I don't care and that I'm insensitive. So, I wish that I could understand women... know how they feel inside and what they're thinking when they give me the silent treatment... know why they're crying... know what they really want when they say nothing... know how to make them truly happy."
The genie paused for a moment, then replied, "You want that bridge two lanes or four?"
I just finished watching a recent episode of Make Me A Supermodel (a new Bravo TV show). The (obviously gay) producers decided to put the two hottest straight male models together for a homoerotic photo shoot and BDSM-inspired catwalk. I've never seen ANYTHING like it on American TV. It's completely out of control.
