Bleach, Prince of Tennis & DM AKA post of html misuse
- I caught up with the last Bleach anime episode this Thursday. OMG, Nel is the squishiest little thing evar!!1one!! *points to icon* Then I continued reading the manga...
- I updated at DM but have been to
lazy busy to make a proper update post. I also spent way to much time on the html of tables and suchlike in order to actually crank this update out.
- I started watching Prince of Tennis. Merely because I ran out of Bleach episodes and because some of my favourite HP fandom writers also write in that fandom...
- I procrastinate.
- I have a gazillion things to do. And no, I'm really NOT joking. I actually threw away the list I made because I felt nauseous every time I looked at it. Aah, sweet oblivion!
- I apparently have a addictive personality *fails*
- All-you-can-eat-sushi is more evil than you might think.
Hope you are all doing well, though. Flist has been very sluggish recently. <3 to all.

Here I am, finally succumbing to the love that is Bleach (shush, I'm only on episode 71, though it has taken me a disturbing few days to actually get there) and squeeing over omgwtfnewfandom! When Jo just goes and makes me explode in fangirlish hyper-squees by admitting Dumbledore was totally gay for Grindelwald
Oh My God, my love for the HP books & fandom is just exploding at the seams right now.ETA:
Also, this is fun
. I can now even make her go anti-clockwise if I really concentrate (thinking of math problems helps ;p)

*is not really here*
=> Happy Birthday, zanzou_chan
. Hope you have a wonderful day!
=>RL friends are taking over my life! I'm hardly back and everyone wants to meet up, which is fun but absolutely detrimental to my online time.
=> I have watched an unhealthy amount of bad movies. I'm not liking it. Might make list "movie to avoid" for you later
=> You know how online advertisement companies spie on what you write/look at etc? Well...( it almost bit me in the arse )

Old Fic & New Art rec
=> After checking the 225 H/D classics
, I went through my personal faves. I found one that didn't make the list but ranks under my Top 10 H/D fics ever. I might be partial, because I adore Terry Pratchett's writing and this fic is similar, but I still think it is made of absolute awesome. It takes fandom clichés and heads the other way, which is enough reason for you to read it:Clear as Mud
=> Moving on to the art rec. It's R/S. It's bondage. It's simple yet utterly perfect. Coincidentally, it's also my new wallpaper *drools* I can not decide whom I find sexier in the pic; Remus or Sirius.Bondage

Icon meme & tongue gymnastics by Dan Radcliffe
=> Icon meme from frackin_sweet
Comment here and I will reply to you and tell you what icon of yours I associate with you. Once I reply, please repost this in your own journal, because I want to know what icon you associate with me.
=> Link snagged from enchanted_jae
, because no on should miss this. Dan Radcliffe and his freaky snake tongue
are just too funny. The boy cracks me up

=> Finally back home, taking a break from uni and enjoying the holiday. However, regardless of how far in advance I give the internet service provider the heads up, it takes forever to get a dsl line up and running. Has to be the fact that I spend my holidays in a non-first world country ;)
But am back online now, only took a week this time (compared to the unbelievable 4 weeks last holiday).
=> And while I was offline, the wonderful enchanted_jae
posted a belated birthday ficlet
for me. The prompt was "I thought you quit, Potter". It's absolutely wonderful, because complicated H/D relationship just are.
You should all go and read it :)
=> Also, there's a new, absolutely lovely interview out at DM
=> Why is everyone on the friendslist having RL issues? It makes me sad *clings to fandom*

Fandom's suspicion are proven right about Naruto. *pats his head*
Plus, wtf? Kakashi as Hokage?! Bwahahaha! I haven't lolled so hard in a long time. That's the most ridiculous idea I've heard in a while, including Mary Sue fic ideas *giggles madly* Nice chapter though. Eagerly awaiting more.

meme Q&A - come play with me.
Continued this meme from rubytuesday5681
Here is how it works:
You reply to this post with a random statement about yourself, anything goes
. I then ask you 5 random questions, one in connection to your statement. You then post the answers to your questions in your IJ / LJ with the invitation for others to join in the meme.( my answers )

Oh god, I went to Youtube. It got you some recs, though.
Some of you might have noticed I have these (mostly short lived) obsessions.
Right now it's Jason Isaacs/Lucius Malfoy. One of the few blue-eyed guys that appeal to me. Then again, the man's voice has the ability to make me weak in the knees.
And because his interviews make me gigglessnort like nothing else, check you these:
Jason Isaacs and Orlando Bloom Interview with hilarious results (if you have no time, watch at least this one)
Lucius' costume: bit of an S/M thing.
There is a sadist inside all of us, just waiting to get out. - Interview with a takeout form The Patriot. They call it scary. I practically died.
Peter Pan Interview improvisation - Gah, the voice!
Lucius/Harry. Sorry, luv. Because this clip will never get old.
For those of you with time on your hands and in need of a laugh:
It's OK to be GAY And funny to boot.
Which Hogwarts Boy Is Gay? *chokes* perfect choice of song imao
Harry Potter as an anime. I'd certainly watch it.
HP anime 1
HP anime 2
Also, on a complete side-note: is Gary Oldman high in every single HP interview or what? Just sayin'.

Utterly hilarious:What Really Happened 2.0
What, you didn't really think that LJ could be this stupid on their OWN did you? Come on.
And the prequel
, if you still remember the Great Blackout in 2005.
Also omg, I need Aziraphale/Crowley fic. Any recs?

Might as well try cross-posting this to my IJ account.
LJ speaks again
I have made my decision (if I dare call it that). Due to its popularity amongst fandom and it's detachment from LJ, you can find me on InsaneJournal: smokity
. And that nifty Fake LJ-User Tag Generator
is pretty awesome for multiple journal postings without retyping it every time.
If you have an IJ account, please friend me (because I have lost track of who made journals where) and I'll add you back, though be warned that the entries will -for now- be identical to the LJ ones. I have yet to get around to searching for people, my mind is exploding with Dreaded Things To Do already.
Once a new fandom blogging site is up that I like, I will probably move there permanently. But only time will tell.
I'm still far from happy with LJ and I will not renew my paid account, but I will most probably keep my journal for various reasons, all pretty selfish. My GreatestJournal account will stay dormant, as it follows the same rules as LJ and it would thus be redundant to post the same thing there. I'm still deciding about JournalFen, which I like (no under 18 has to count for something) but can't really be bothered with all these bloody accounts.
Also, I made journals for Darkest Magic while the name was still available: on IJ: darkestmagic
. I'm posting this link only in my own journal for now, as I have yet to muster the strength to even look at those blearily blank pages.
♥ to all.

I fail at the internetz.
*headdesk* I posted this on the 6th of August. Under the 'private' setting. Clever me, no? Here goes:
I updated Darkest Magic. Yep, that's right. Plus shiny new server, private hosting and all.
I'm still a bit speechless, but there you have it. After months and months, I'm beyond happy that the ball is finally rolling again :D
I wanted to gush about Loveless, which is the featured non-H/D slash couple for this OTM
but I'm exhausted and need to drive to the airport this afternoon. Here's The All-Encompassing Loveless Guide
that you can check out.
Loveless = ♥

Next post will be about something else. Promise.
1. So, you will not renew your paid account
under the current circumstances?
2. You have a free account
but are unhappy with 6A/LJ services?
3. Bought a permanent account
and think 6A/LJ are being utterly ridiculous?
Check out pay_no_more
, where accounts are being counted concerning payments to 6A/LJ. Even free account holders have a comment page, so please check it out!
Also a very interesting entry about important links relating to this recent Bold-Out
Now, I'm off to read some porn.

The epic fail of LJ - now reaching cracktastic proportions
OK, so I'm scanning the comments about
the recent bullshit LJ is producing Illegal and Harmful Content Policy Clarifications
My emotions ranged from disbelieve, and went via anger right through to utter OMGWTFBBQ? If LJ honestly thinks they can continue with this utter ridiculousness, I'm leaving for good. Not just having a mirror Journal, but deleting this one (and all others I own), because there is no chance that I will be supporting this behaviour. The moment the right alternative comes along, I'll have a decision to make (in that regard, keep an eye on scribblit.com
. For more info read recent entries here: twocorpses
For a very interesting 'summary': here's a link
to questions answered by LJ
compiled from that post. Beware the utter confusion, though.
I regret more than ever that I got a paid account. It will definitely not be renewed under the current circumstances. Unfortunately, anyone still using a 'sponsored account
' is helping them. They will keep up this insanity, as a few users leaving is probably still covered by the ads :/
Actually the more you read about it, the more cracktastic it all becomes.
ETA: You can now request a JournalFen account here

Round two of the strikethrough.
Oh fuck you LJ, I'm so very sick of this drama.
It's no fun having a friends page full of this shit. It spoils my mood.
I suggest you check out fandom_flies
and fandomtossed at GJ
and this entry
Wed, Aug. 1st, 2007, 05:01 pm
This shit got its own tag
Ok, look people. We all laughed at either one or both the names Albus Severus and Scorpius. And yes, they are very slashable.
But! Just one tiny thing:
Scorpibus... Will. Not. Do.
Regardless of what planet you live on. It's the dummest thing ever, so don't even go there.

J. K interview on unmentioned canon matter
For all those addicted to HP canon, I give you a link to what J.K says happens post DH, and other canon stuff
It definitely has some interesting information about the futures of the HP cast after Voldemort's downfall.
And she states quite clearly that
Teddy is not a werewolf.2.
"Harry's faults are primarily anger and occasional arrogance".3.
Harry can't speak parseltongue no more....4.
George could have a magical ear if he wanted.5.
She denotes global warming to the decrease in Dementors.6.
Regulus's change of heart was due to Voldemort's attempt to kill Kreacher.7.
Narcissa never had the Dark Mark.8.
Harry eventually owns Sirius's bike.9.
Draco, "whom misfortune has sobered!".10.
about the H/D relationship: "Real friendship would be out of the question, though. Too much had happened prior to the final battle." Well, J.K., we were never really bothered about friendship all that much :P
the following about Sirius, which had me rolling: "J.K. Rowling: Thank you very much, Camille, and I'm sorry about Sirius. That man's got a lot of fans. ... Mostly female, I might add." Mostly, eh? Oh J.K you slasher, you.
Ah, that was quite educational :P

Let's follow Sasuke's scent, indeed a.k.a. Naruto 364
OMG IT'S TRUE!
Not that I believed it till now. Passed it off as fannish invention. I have been converted: Tobi = Obito.
wants a piece of Sasuke's arse. And the only thing he's letting close to it is a great big purple bow.
Kishimoto ships Naruto/Sasuke like woah.

See you sunday
spoilers here, spoilers there, spoilers every-fucking-where.
And if it's not spoilers it's offers to download the book. I don't even want that, yet it's tempting since I want to know what happens, dammit.
However, it lacks a certain sense of style.
BUT I want the whole experience. Want to squee when the book arrives, hold it and make notes, curl up and be so bloody into it I forget to eat the whole day. I'm really looking forward to it AND I ACTUALLY LIKE THE ANTICIPATION.
Therefore, to curb further temptation I'll be back Sunday.
And by god, my otp better still be subtext-canon then.
