has convinced me to go see Harry Potter 3 again tonight. For the third time in IMAX. Eighth time total. That doesn't include the numerous times I've watched the Remus/Sirius scenes on my own copy. I'm such a dork. (But it is really cool
to see in IMAX....)
(Is OoTP still considered spoilery? Well, it's been out over a year; I'm not going to hide every spoiler from it, so be warned.)Here is a great essay
about why Remus/Sirius might be canon. Not that I really care if they're officially canon or not, because I don't give a damn about authorial intent, but it's nice to see their relationship being examined so closely.jaydk
has tried to convince me that Sirius isn't really
dead. I mean, there's no body, and who dies from falling through a veil
anyway? Why would Rowling set up such a weird death unless something more was going to come of it?
I still think he's dead, personally. But now I have this idea in my head, which gives me hope
, which is very bad because it makes me want to read more fic....
I'm going to be so devastated when the next book comes out and my poor darling Sirius is still dead
Speaking of fic, I quite loved The Host and His Guest
by Diane Coffin. (That's a rec; go read it if you haven't.) Not to mention the amazing stuff that anniesj
has been writing.
So, btw, is anyone in R/S fandom for Sirius? Everyone seems to prefer Remus. I don't get it at all.... I totally identify with Sirius, and find him fascinating, and like him best. (Though I was more like Snape than Sirius in school ... but that whole flashback didn't bother me. Just made me love Sirius even more, and made me more heartbroken that he didn't really get a chance to grow up properly.)
God, I'm babbling. This is horrible. This is why jaydk
and I are going to hang out tonight--so we can babble to each other about this.
We were also happy to learn that DragonCon
has added a "Young Adult Literature" track. Which is going to have Harry Potter stuff! Woohoo!! (Given that there was only one HP panel last year, this is a major improvement.)
Anyone else going to DragonCon this year? jaydk
and I decided to go because we had so much fun last year--so much to do, great music, amazing costumes, etc. Something for everyone.
Anyway, in boring RL news, over the weekend my dad came to the city and helped me install a new air conditioner. I should save on the electric bill, in the end, and at least the fuse won't blow, and I'll probably have better luck keeping roommates in a room that isn't sweltering.
My dad also brought the cats back, and the new roommate moved in. The cats seem fine; Lucifer is being very clingy, which he does whenever he's away from me for long. He needs lots of attention. The new roommate seems cool--vegan and likes cats. I've got my fingers crossed that it'll work out.
I went into work two hours early today, so that I can take off two hours early tomorrow. (Working ten hours = really boring). But tomorrow I'm going to see Common Rotation at psubrat
's! With tons of cool people like chenanceou
, and so on. Should be fun. :)
And then I want to see Common Ro again the next night in Long Island, and then maybe Saturday night in Woodstock ....
I'm such a fangirl.
