it was just a river in Eygpt five minutes ago...  
So I was totally writing SGA fic, thinking 'HP fandom, I'm over you, walk on by, hand back your key, it's every Muggle for herself now'; and then I read monochromal's fight song, and now the empty sucking strangely cleasing and addictive feeling is back. With one day to go, one. day. We did make something here. And it was beautiful, in the way petrol slick on a puddle is beautiful. It's ours and in little over a day, it might not be any more, and I actually cried.

And then I read sarahtales's review of the OotP movie and I'm laughing like crazy. My emotional vagaries confuse even me. But seriously, who could resist:


That needs to be, not just an icon, but a bumper sticker.

Oh God, DH, don't kill it all. Please.

I know, it's all very traumatic! I never thought I could be in another fandom, but now it's very clear that this is it for me: I get too attached to characters when I write them, and the fact that someone else (and rightfully so) has the Final Say is killing me. Originals from now on.

That said, it's been lovely. And mostly funny, at least for me. Let us go out laughing.

I'm THAR. Or at least like, in the bookshop, when they get there. :D And as for the going out laughing, I'm laughing, and that's because of you. (We can has soulz? Oh yes! Long time since!) So thank you, sincerely, for that.

Yay. And you're very welcome. (And by this is it for me I didn't mean that I wouldn't finish the fics I have on hand now, because I hope I will.)

That would have been interesting ... if I'd read it before I'd read the book.

See, the stupid thing about these spoilers is that I originally saw all of them before I read the book. But knowing it didn't affect the ways I saw any of the deaths or how sad I was afterwards (or not sad, depending).

It also gives away no plot. How strange that a generation of kids are so focused on trying to find out who dies next.

The effects of a video-game culture, maybe? I'm sure it says something Deep and Meaningful about humanity that a series of books whose message is love conquers death and death is nothing to fear is famous mostly for who dies and when. lol.
