athra: ([HP] bugger and disaster)
So [ profile] momebie is kind of evil, and keeps posting Jefferson/August things, which is so easy to love, because I love Jefferson a lot. Because, you know, I have a thing for angsty boys, I can't help it! And also because I really love this show, but until this ship I wasn't sure I could fandom it hardcore... I love Rumple, and I like Rumble/Belle, but it's not something I would fandom. I love Regina, but all the people shipping her with Emma are a little bit crazy, okay? And I like Snow and James, but oh my GOD does David piss me off, and also I like them in the context of the show, but probably not so much as something I would fandom, so WHATEVER.

So I was thinking about Jefferson/August tonight at work (like you do, when you hate work and are giving in to the inevitable) and I was thinking about how it's hot and all when they're together, and I like the ship and all, but man, I also really like the idea of Jefferson just kind of adding August in as more angst to his life as one more thing he can't have or whatever, because you know HE NEEDS MORE OF THAT, and also because I also really like the August/Bae stuff that [ profile] momebie has written, and then I had to stop thinking about it because I am not writing and arghhhh.

(also why the fuck can I not find any good Jefferson icons, I will have to do some more hardcore searching later.)

This of course led me to thinking about Remus and Sirius, because that ALWAYS HAPPENS, because they will never stop being my home in fandom, and how I was drafting a fic for them in my head the other night, and considering actually writing it for once, and somehow this led me to thinking about next gen and I don't know how the fuck THAT happened, and then I had this crazy idea for a next gen fic, but I DO NOT WRITE NEXT GEN, and I know nothing about the typical next gen anything because I have never read or dabbled or whatever in next gen at all, and yet I still kind of want to write this stupid thing, and WHAT IS MY LIFE, YOU GUYS.

But more on the Remus/Sirius fic, because that is the most likely to happen: I kind of want to make it a 5 Times fic, because I like 5 Times/Things fics in general, and also because I think it would work well as one, except that I would have to figure out a fifth 'time' because I only have 4 right now, but ALSO I feel like it would be lazy to write it in that format in this particular case, and I should probably try to actually frame a story together, but I do like being lazy in general, and I just don't knoooooow.

Also, if you can't tell, I am very ramble-y and not completely coherent just at the moment, so I should probably wait to write ANYTHING until I can string sentences together properly again, but you know, whatever. These things are eating my brain and this has not happened in a while, and I KIND OF LIKE IT.

Other than [ profile] barbed_whispers hacking my journal, it's been more than a month since I posted... though I guess that isn't overly unusual for me anymore. So let's do a check up on my life, I know you're all SO interested!

1) Work
The new job is going pretty well. I'm slowly securing my place there more and more, and everyone seems to like me and the work I do. The office itself is still in transition, however, and there's a lot of turnover at the moment, which is nerve-wracking. However, I figure I'll just do the best I can and go from there, since that's about all I have to offer.

We negotiated a salary for myself, which was strange for me as I've never done that before. But it was nice, too, because I was able to get in the range I wanted, and go there 5 days a week and leave Bubba Gump. That was a little sad for me, partly because I honestly loved that job, and partly because of the awesome discount on Universal merchandise, but it was the best decision for me (and my sanity) overall, so I'm pleased with that.

2) Fun Things
Speaking of that awesome Universal discount, I totally went into IOA my second-to-last day at Bubba Gump, and spent way too much money on Harry Potter merch. >.> But I got a hoodie that I love, a shirt for [ profile] imthelobster, and a couple keychains and misc things. ♥

On Sunday, [ profile] imthelobster and I actually had some rare time to be able to spend together, so we ended up going out to Wekiva Springs for a few hours, which was soooo nice. I haven't been out there in ages, but it was awesome to be able to just relax in the water and spend some time together and whatnot.... even if the dragonflies WERE trying to eat our faces off!

3) TV
MERLIN IS BACK MERLIN IS BACK MERLIN IS BACK!!! omg you guys I cannot even TELL you how much I love this ridiculous show ♥ ♥ ♥

And in sillier news, I have totally and completely gotten addicted to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, which is totally [ profile] barbed_whispers fault >.> I have been marathoning it like crazy, and I REGRET NOTHING.

The only new show I've picked up this season is Ringer, which... honestly is pretty bad, but then somehow I keep watching it. Don't ask me to explain why, because idek. Other than that I'm watching Castle still, OF COURSE, along with Glee, and How I Met Your Mother. We're working on catching up with Fringe, and then Bones starts next month... we're also still doing our re-watch of SG-1, which will eventually translate into watching Atlantis and Universe. AND I still need to/want to actually start on Dr. Who.

....somehow I always end up watching more TV than I think I do o.O

I am such a mix of things right now.

1) I loved the last Harry Potter movie. I cried through most of it, and I am not ashamed. It made me feel a lot of ~feelings~ and I really want to post on it more, but I am distracted and also I want to see it again to process it a bit more.

2) [ profile] imthelobster and I got a new kitten, who is absolutely, ridiculously adorable. I love him to much. I need to post pics at some point, I suppose.

3) And the bad thing, the thing which is dampening the two good things above by quite a bit: one of my friends is in the hospital right now, and her condition is pretty bad. Since I've known her she's always had a lot of health issues (she's ex-military and was disabled during her time with the Navy, among other things) but she got suddenly WAY worse. They don't know what happened to her for sure -- it could have been an accidental drug overdose (she's on a LOT of prescription meds) or it's even possible she had a stroke. She's not coherent right now really at all, and there's not an answer yet on whether or not she's going to get better. I'm just really, really worried.
athra: ([HP] saving myself for voldy!)
[ profile] imthelobster and I finally took advantage of one of our Christmas gifts from my parents today, and went and got our annual passes to Universal, and then spent a few hours in Hogsmeade for the first time ever. OH MY GOD. I can't believe it took me this long to get there, because holy hell was it so awesome.

We did the Flight of the Hippogriff ride, which was okay, and we also did the Forbidden Journey, which was awesome (even though I was covering my eyes for like a third of it, STUPID SPIDERS)

We didn't do the Dragon Challenge ride, or go into the wand shop, but that gives us new things to do next time! It was really crowded, so we only did a short pass through Zonkos and Honeydukes, but still: awesome. We did, however, wait in line to be able to eat at Three Broomsticks, which was fun. Mmm, frozen Butterbeer...

I can't wait to go back :D

Also, I want to actually do the rest of the park, and also the Studios, at some point.

I hope everyone had a nice holiday, whatever you celebrate :)

My Christmas was really good. A little weird, since [ profile] imthelobster is up north visiting family, but I did my thing with my dad and stepmom on Christmas Eve, and then had Christmas morning with my mom. The food is almost the best part, haha. On Christmas Eve we always do a fondue, which is all kinds of excellent, and my dad made twice-baked sweet potatoes to go with it this year, which were amazing. And then for breakfast Christmas morning, my mom did biscuits and sausage gravy, mmm... and then we had a more 'traditional' Christmas dinner (turkey and all the fixings)... and of course I came home with tons of homemade baked goods, courtesy of both my mom and stepmom. No wonder I'm so fat ;)

I didn't ask for very much this year, so I got everything I asked for, which was good... the one thing I'm excited about, though, is something I didn't even think to ask for: money to buy seasonal passes to Universal!!! Apparently I mentioned on Thanksgiving that I hadn't been to see Hogsmeade yet, which is a TRAGEDY, and my stepmom remembered and gave us the money for both [ profile] imthelobster and I :D :D :D We've decided not to spring the extra for the annual pass, I think we're both happy just to be able to have the seasonal.

And also: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! to both [ profile] imthelobster and [ profile] dragonmountborn :D :D

Just be glad I spared you the black and yellow font color. It was very tempting.

So. I've always loved James and Lily. canon OTPs ftw! and all that.

I have a newfound love for them.

athra: ([HP] neither can live)
So, thanks to [ profile] theemdash, I am celebrating Wizard Rock Day! I am not as familiar with Wizard Rock, but regardless, I love it. :)

For the record, my top ten favorite songs are mostly the songs that amuse me the most. And that could change in the next five seconds. Regardless, here's ten Wizard Rock songs I think you should all listen to, in no particular order:

1. The Passion - Lord of the Strings
My name is Voldemort, and I'm a superstar

2. Voldemort is Awesome - Draco and the Malfoys
and now those jerks are worried that you're coming back, yeah / they're afraid that you will attack, yeah / and I know you will totally unmercifully destroy all non-believers

3. Expecto Partonum - Remus and the Lupins
it starts with an 'E', stands for 'Evil, go Away!' / then an 'X' and a 'P' for puppies, they fight when they play! / then an 'E' and a 'C' and a 'T-O' for 'Oh my, this is easy!'

4. Alone on Valentines Day - The Remus Lupins
your silver bullet tongue is what did my heart in

5. Wizard Rock Heartthrob - The Whomping Willows
everyone knows that wizard rock girls are the prettiest girls in the whole wide world

6. Accio Love - Ministry of Magic
he smiles when she's not looking / he daydreams when she's not there / it won't be long 'til they discover / Ron and Hermione love each other

7. Krum's Song - The Hermione Crookshanks Experience
I don't want to be troublesome / but I can't love you Viktor Krum / there's nothing in your cranium

8. I Have Red Hair - Ginny and the Heartbreakers
I hold my head up high and I say beware / my name is Ginny / I have red hair

9. Pansy (You Are The Girl Of My Dreams) - Draco and the Malfoys
oh, Pansy / you are the girl of my dreams / 'cause all the other girls in Slytherin are fugly!

10. End of the Year Feast - DJ Luna Lovegood
and if I had my things / it wouldn't matter at all / I'd be sitting all alone in the Great Hall

I don't think it really counts as Wizard Rock, but if you haven't heard this song then you MUST, because it is possibly my favorite song in the entire UNIVERSE. And yes, I can sing the whole thing acapella. And yes, I do that occasionally. What can I say? I LOVE IT.
Tony Goldmark - Sirius Black Rap
Professor, Potter's not letting me represent for the Dark Side! / Potter, let Malfoy kick it old school or it's detention
athra: ([HP] mysteries)
First of all. The Golden Compass trailer?
[ profile] barbed_whispers and I had like, a fit, when it came on the screen. omg SO EXCITED. vbsdfjkvm nvjksdfnv

Okay. The movie.

Order of the Phoenix )
athra: ([randy] why is lisa humping me?)

[ profile] barbed_whispers living here is going well. Mostly. Except for the fact where she is constantly ragging on my mom. >:| Lame.

We are making our way steadily through Buffy, though, which is awesome. We've finished all of season 1 at this point (including the special features) and I think we're probably going to finish the second disc of season 2 tonight. Man, I love season two. Like, I enjoy season 1, but... not nearly as much. (Though Prophecy Girl still gets me every time, I admit this freely. How could it not, though?)

Yay Buffy!

OotP on Tuesday night vhjdfnbjkfgbn I AM SO EXCITED. Fandom is being so good to me this summer. Sigh. ♥

I'm sure I had other things I thought about updating lj with (something about [ profile] theemdash being a dirty perv for Harry...) but for now, I think I'm done.
athra: ([HP] SBP - righteous groove)
Sometimes I seriously think I need a brain transfusion or something. wtf, self. just... wtf.


I have a lot of thoughts on the recent lj drama, and a lot of them probably not what most people would expect, but mostly I'm sick of reading about (so why I'm saying something, I don't know.)
Here's what I DO know:
[ profile] pornish_pixies is back! I had taken it off of my flist a while ago, but I now feel this overwhelming need to go and reread some of the stuff I used to love. So I think I'm going to. :D

(I need to re-tag my journal. Not that anyone cares, but it's annoying me.)

OMG so. I got my time off request approved today... meaning that I'm going up to NJ to meet up with [ profile] barbed_whispers and drive back down with her at which point she will be LIVING HERE. You guys... that is seriously less than a month away at this point. I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO TELL YOU ALL HOW THIS MAKES ME FEEL.
(pee ess: Lisa, I need to talk about a couple things with you. weeeeeeee.)

For those of you that haven't heard: More info on the HP theme park! How much do I love living in Orlando? SERIOUSLY. (There's a minor minor spoiler-ish type thing on page two of the article for Deathly Hallows... but honestly, I'm spoiler-phobic and it wasn't something that bothered me/that I didn't already know, so take that how you will.)

Work has been fucking CRAZY this week. Just... insane, I don't even know. It feels like we've been behind all week, and I've had to stay late pretty much every day... which means I'll get to leave early tomorrow and/or Saturday, though, so I guess that's good? On Sunday, though, I have to go in at FIVE AM. Ugh. Uuuugh.
OH OH BUT. I got randomly happy, because one of the AP (Assets Protection) guys has been going around quizzing everyone on safeness vs. safety, since we're going to be having a HUGE visit soon (the VP of the company for AP, wtf) and they'll be going around asking people... so when I answered his questions he was like "Do you know you're the first person out of about a HUNDRED that I've asked that hit all the main points on the first try? Thank you. Just... thank you." And I was like, YEAH I KIND OF WIN. heh.

Hmmm. I guess that's about all I have right now...

(I'll close this by saying this:
I really love some people and I'd really love to punt some others in the fucking face.
Was that vague enough for recent events? Yeah. wtf.)
athra: ([HP] bittersweet)
[Poll #986198]

In other news... finished reading the second book of Morganville Vampires tonight. SO MUCH LOVE. So many thoughts on that, which I might get around to posting... we'll see.

This means I'm going to start my reread of Harry Potter tomorrow. :D

I always THINK about opening up Semagic and making an actual update, and I never seem to get around to it. So I'm going to try to actually do it this time!

Fannish out of the way first:

Okay. So not only am I getting a new HARRY POTTER OMG (BOOK AND MOVIE!), but the new Weather Warden book comes out, the new ABVH book comes out (which, I know, I KNOW it's going to suck, but it's EDWARD and dammit, I can't help but hope at least a LITTLE wtf) AND. AND AND. There's going to be a special issue ABVH comic about the first time Anita met Jean-Claude! vbsdjkvbdfbnjnJHBHBCHGBK WEEEEEEEE!! omg that excites me to NO END.
Could this summer be any better for fandom?

ALSO. The Buffy Season 8 comic -- The Long Way Home -- is AWESOME. At least, the first issue was. omg I LOVED IT. LOOOOOVED.
And I have seriously missed Buffy. Like... whoa. HELLO MY WONDERFUL ORIGINAL FANDOM I LOVE YOU TO PIECES. (I want to upload some new Buffy icons now vbjvbjkdfbj. I think my icons might need to have a makeover.)
I believe Lisa and I are planning a major Buffy marathon after she moves in. It will be AMAZING. and cracktastic, but that's amazing, too. XD

Okay, and in other news, but still fannish news... I have become addicted to a new series. ::facepalm:: It's all Nicole's fault!
But yeah, Criminal Minds? Is AWESOME. And I am more than a little in love with Reid. D:

Work is going... okay. haha, these super annoying girls on my team got bitched out today, which was really kind of amazing. XD TAKE THAT, LOSERS.

Yeah, see? I'm losing my will to update. :/


I? Am going to Japan. Yes. In like... whoa. SO SOON. April 2nd we leave.
It's all kind of amazing and I'm terribly excited, though I still find it hard to believe it's true and I will probably continue to feel this way until I've been in Tokyo for a couple days, haha. but, basically? I have the best friends in existance. ♥ to Nicole and Casey, yes.

Well, I still came closer to a real update than I have in a while? heh.

omg. publication date next, plzkthx.

ETA: I see my flist has already exploded somewhat with this, so sorry if you've seen it already, but EEEEE! I discovered it via MuggleNet, because Emerson is my mini-god. :)
athra: ([HP] Moody - cool eye)
It's been a long time since I've read a Harry Potter meta that I enjoyed this much.

It's largely about the Prophecy that Trelawney made, but it touches heavily on Dumbledore, especially, as well as some other things.

I don't agree with everything here, but I think all of it is very interesting, and well thought out... and in any case, worth reading, if you're a Harry Potter fan and like this sort of thing. :)

I'll get around to reading the other essays on this site, I'm sure, but for now..
