The Boy Who Lived Forever

An article on fanfiction that isn't condescending and irritating! In TIME!

Fan fiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. They don’t do it for money. That’s not what it’s about. The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction. They’re fans, but they’re not silent, couchbound consumers of media. The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language.


*goes back to trying to watch a livestream of the DH premiere at work*

*shut up, it's the last one ever*

I honestly don't even know if this post will make any more sense than it would have if I'd made it immediately after watching. At 3am Friday morning. BUT WHATEVER. I will start typing and we'll see.

eta: holy crap this is an embarrassing amount of rambling and flail.

spoilers know they'll never love this way again so they'll keep holding on till all the good is gone )

+ Got my first ever assignment, and it could be good. I do need to consume the source again because it's been a while -- WHICH IS FINE, I DID OFFER IT. :D

Mannn, I'm all nervous though. I've only got till the 18th.

+ I didn't skip Merlin this week in case anyone wondered, lol. I have some feelings about it that I'll probably post laters but it was a busy weekend.

+ Meant to make a DH post yesterday, but I got distracted by starting a random rewatch of The Wire. So I will probably post that laters too. :D Fair warning, it's going to contain a lot of flail based on the fact that Harry/Hermione is still my OTP of OTPs, even though the R/Hr was presh too. BECAUSE WOW THAT FILM WAS LIKE A SUCKER-PUNCH OF OTP AND I WAS NOT EQUIPPED TO DEAL WITH IT. Two watches later and I'm still gripped in the clutches of a full-blown feelings attack. I wanna go read [personal profile] inell's and my old RP threads and read/write fic.

more later. Happy Monday! ♥

Splitting it in two was a GOOD call and I kind of want to send Steve Kloves flowers and I have SO MANY FEELINGS


I won't be home for much of Friday or Saturday so I probably won't make my review post until Sunday (when I'll probably see it again), but in the meantime I am so happy with it!

I did in fact cry all over myself. Twice, maybe two and a half times tbh.

GUYS I'm watching the election results and the results in PA are too close to call atm (hold me), and I'm trying not to cry/throw up over Rand Paul (RAND PAUL) being elected in Kentucky and Marco Fucking Rubio being elected in FL, sooooo.... idk have some music?

Doctor Who Series 5 Soundtrack by Murray Gold

It's SO GOOD, in that way of great TV scores that call back the best moments of the series. As an ALBUM it could probably use some editing -- it has 60something tracks and they're all over the place; literally every clip of score that was ever used in the episodes, lol. But there are about 10-12 tracks that make the whole thing worth it.


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 OST by Alexandre Desplat

OMG I LOVE IT. It's dark and so much more mature than the previous scores; even the more whimsical bits feel heavier. And there's some seriously beautiful, moving tracks in the bunch. I think the Prisoner of Azkaban score might be my favorite still, but this is up there.


...In other news, I am still a little bit in love with Rachel Maddow.

Not top five things - I'M WORKING ON IT - but things!

+ [livejournal.com profile] femgenficathon's master list is up! I love this fest every year; it always turns out some rare and wonderful stuff. Check it out! More than 70 stories in 40 fandoms.

+ Writers' Round Table at [community profile] camelot_fleet. I love that post and have bookmarked it because it's full of tips and tools for writing all sorts of fic. The ever-awesome [personal profile] briar_pipe is adding new topics every day through Saturday and it's still hopping, so give it a read! It's turning into a great resource. I'm so proud of the Fleet, and even though I'm co-mod, I wish I could take credit for the wonderful and unique sorts of things we get up to over there. *hearts Mei, Brains Of The Operation (tm)*

+ Mad Men was fantastic this week and True Blood is INSANE. I don't really have time to review either of them right now, though. *g*

+ Kickoff party at [livejournal.com profile] onceandfutures got over 1300 comments because people are CRAZY. ♥ But no, I'm really excited about it, I want it to be an open and inviting place for people to frolic, and also have some good discussions hopefully. It'll be funtimes.

+ I've been on a bit of a comics binge after finishing Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and wanting as radical a change of pace as possible. I started reading Runaways and so far, it is the comic of my SOUL. Next on my list (and my hard drive, haha) - Y The Last Man. If anyone has recs for other comics/graphic novels, hit me! (ETA: some FANTASTIC recs in the comments lookit)

+ Finally, Mark Reads Harry Potter, chapter by chapter, and he's never read it before. He's on GoF now and there is much hilarity. Sometimes I really, really miss that series.

Hope everyone's having a good one! ♥

+ I'm probably the last person on my f-list to post about the DH trailer, but yeah, I watched the DH trailer! And it was amazing! I nearly cried.

I realise canon's been closed for almost three years now, but after the last films come out, it's really over when it comes to new material. Kind of hard to process. HP was my first real fandom and even though I've been into a lot of different things lately, it's my one true fandom -- the biggest, best, most immersive I've been involved in before or since. I've met so many of you through it. ♥ I doubt I'll ever find a fandom that's quite like it - both the good and the bad.

BUT DID I MENTION THE TRAILER IS AMAZING. Confession: I liked DH -- loved it, actually. Not unreservedly, but overall. I say that as someone who doesn't even ship the canon pairings. To me it was a love letter to the Trio, to me that's as it should be, and if the movie comes anywhere close I doubt I'll be able to get through it without sobbing.

+ Is this real life? EXCUSE ME RTD WTF ARE YOU DOING. I can't describe how much I hate the idea of Americanizing Doctor Who, or of inserting some movie-verse Doctor into things when the franchise is still going strong. Please let it be a hoax.

+ Via Flora, Five More Fictional Beings Bella Swan Should Fall Madly In Love With.

+ I'm taking vacation time next week! Friday's my last day. Including the holiday and weekends, I'll have a total of ten days off to chill, see friends, and get stuff done. Unfortunately I'm too broke to go anywhere far, but stay-cations can be good.

I hope y'all are having a good week! Hugs to everyone who needs one. ♥

JKR might put out a new HP book in like ten years or something?

Look you guys, I'm not even going to pretend I won't be all over that if it happens (though maybe not if it's ten years from now, jeez.)

I'm a total sucker for it. Let's not get into how long I squeed that one time she wrote some James/Sirius shit on the back of a napkin.

+ I may have created a Katie/Angel/Morgana/Gwen tumblr, for picspamming and general sharing of prettified pics, quotes, videos, gifs, and whatever else concerning the girls. If you're on tumblr, follow it! With Flowers. :D

+ Fest season is in high gear and I am sitting on my hands. I definitely don't need to be signing up for Valensmut, Wizard Love, 3 Ships (man, 3 Ships is tempting) etc. when I have yet to finish Smutty_Claus or camelotsolstice and am definitely doing Yuletide. Also, the art that's being used in the banners for [livejournal.com profile] hp_nextgen_fest makes me want to sign up for it, it's so pretty. *cuddles Rose and Albus and Lily and Scorpius* But that is a ridiculous reason to sign up for an exchange if ever there was one, so I'm not, you know, going to. But you all should, if you're inclined, they look like much fun even if I don't think the stress would be good for me.

+ [livejournal.com profile] merlin_femslash. Need I say more? Also, [livejournal.com profile] merlin_cliche. Because magic unicorns made them do it, and it was good.

+ Art rec: Arthur/Gwen/Merlin film-noir THEY ARE SO HOT I CAN'T TAKE IT. And it's completely safe for work. The accompanying kinkmeme ficlet? Definitely not for the kids.

+ Fic rec: I've been reading a lot of lovely things lately, which reminds me how much I fail at my recs-listing, but here's one real quick: Please (NC-17) by [livejournal.com profile] blackmamba_esq. Kinky Arthur/Gwen. Dom!Gwen hits buttons I didn't even know I had.

+ I've been reading Glee fic. Kurt/Puck and Quinn/Rachel. Oh yeah. (Thanks, Inell.)

+ Apparently Christian Bale had TOM CRUISE in mind when getting into Patrick Bateman's character for American Psycho. brb loling forever.

+ I am having a good day at work. Stuff is working. :D Hope everyone is doing well - hugs to everyone who needs them. ♥

The archive for [livejournal.com profile] hermionebigbang IS UP!!! Bweeee, we have so much fic and so much amazing art so please check it out! Loads of different pairings, both het and femslash. [livejournal.com profile] inell is mostly responsible for it going as smoothly as it has. <333 Thanks to the pinch-hitters as well.

Later today we'll post a masterlist, once all the other admin stuff is done.


ALSO. OMG. People in the UK are watching new Merlin AS I TYPE THIS and I am so jealous. I can't wait till I can watch! Happy squeeing, all. For the moment I am subjecting Inell, who is here, to a Merlin season one marathon while we code shit. :D
