Via [ profile] corvideye, this one left me breathless:

End of the Line by [ profile] googlebrat. SPOILERS FOR DEATHLY HALLOWS.

But this is extraordinarily good. Spoilers for Deathly Hallows, "no pairings, PG for language. Obviously, spoilers abound," sez the author.

ETA: Hm, I just realized some of the comments to my posts didn't get mailed to me. So if I didn't reply, really, I'm not snubbing you. :)

'Deathly Hallows' SPOILERS!!!! Oh, and a question. )

Very tired, and now to get ready for first day on new job, eeek.

Via [ profile] cirrocoj: the Goblet of Scorching Hotness. Spoilery.

To wit:

DRACO: Daddy, when can I have a pimp cane of my very own?
LUCIUS: When you can use it like a man. Shacka lacka swish!

More funny quotes that are a tiny bit too spoilery. But really, just go read it -- it's funny. )

Through [ profile] moireach, sort of, a new "Goblet of Fire" trailer. I love Ron's "Whhhhaaa?" at the very beginning (if you watch it, you'll see -- let's say it's during a scene during which they are taking some liberties with the book, but cute nonetheless).

I'm trying to find a way to save the movie file: if you right click on the movie file, all it saves is a shortcut. And I can't figure out how to save it from the cache. (They don't make that easy to find any more.) Gr. Argh.

Go to your iTunes/media player/WinAmp and put it all on shuffle. Say the following questions aloud, and after each one press play. Use the song title as the answer to the question.

Answer me, O Magic iTunes Ball! )


Also, today's Get Fuzzy is particularly funny for Harry Potter fans. :)

Feeling silly, waiting for DVD to finish burning...

I know Mary GrandPré is not everyone's cup to tea, but I ran across this page of links to scans of images of her illustrations from the 2006 literary calendar. I think the Pensieve one is my favourite.

(I just finished re-reading this book today.)

Thoughts about the veil and how it relates to the newest book. )

This is probably old news to most, but just sort of hit me as a Hmmmm.

…of being hot and sweaty. I am starting to think it's just me. Surely no one else is boiling hot at 9:38pm @ 71° outside.

*waves crazily to [ profile] _xis* It's so weird how one's social spheres collide on the internet (and LJ).

Just finished Goblet of Fire last night and am on to Order of the Phoenix. I'd forgotten how annoyingly hostile Harry is throughout much of this book. I'm sure it's realistic for a 15 year old boy to be moody and rebellious, but it's still a bit grating to read SO! MANY! CAPS!

It is still too bloody hot. I'm quite sick of this already. I want my grey, overcast July back, thank you very kindly.

Finished re-reading The Chamber of Secrets. Interesting mention of a complex spell to cure werewolves. OK, spoiler for book 2, for those who care. ) Ah yes, when the ending of this Harry Potter book makes one weepy, one knows hormones are on full tap.

Also read I'm Not Scared by Niccolò Ammaniti (the English translation by Jonathan Hunt). Recommended by a co-worker, it's a compelling, relatively quick read, one that sucks the reader into their world. I'm still thinking about it.

So at the very end of the first Harry Potter book (Philosopher's Stone/Sorcerer's Stone to the Scholastic audience), I noticed two interesting things. Will cut this, as this involves the most recent book as well. )
peppermintesse: (Harry Potter)
And because I really love Mary GrandPré's illustration style.
