Oh man I am sooo tired. Still can't sleep though. I miss sleeping, it was so pleasant. *sigh*

Was watching the Harry Potter movies on TV today and thinking about Snape being bad and then not bad and it made me think of this Andrew quote from Buffy:

"I went over to the dark side, but just to pick up a few things, and now I'm back."

Now I totally want a Snape icon that says that. Could somebody who is better at iconing make that for me? I'm too tired. [livejournal.com profile] jackiesjunkie made me this Snape icon. :D

I'm also convinced that Alan Rickman is totally playing Snape as gay. Not that I'm saying that is bad because I love Alan Rickman as Snape and Harry/Snape is totally my HP OTP 4EVA.
Vatican Slams Harry Potter:
The Vatican City has slammed JK Rowling's Harry Potter as "the wrong kind of hero," who poses a danger to children across the world.

In a damning article, the Vatican's official newspaper L'Osservatore Romano has condemned the popular teenage boy wizard for promoting witchcraft and occult -- the Church's latest view on the Potter series.

Under the headline 'The Double Face of Harry Potter', the article by an expert in English literature says: 'Despite the values that we come across in the narration, at the base of this story, witchcraft is proposed as a positive ideal. The violent manipulation of things and people comes thanks to knowledge of the occult. The ends justify the means because the knowledgeable, the chosen ones, the intellectuals know how to control the dark powers and turn them into good.

'This a grave and deep lie, because it is the old Gnostic temptation of confusing salvation and truth with a secret knowledge. The characterisation of common men who do not know magic as 'muggles' who know nothing other than bad and wicked things is a truly diabolical attitude.'

The writer, Professor Edoardo Rialti of Florence University, has also tried to establish a parallel between the 'fantasy masterpieces' -- CS Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia and JRR Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings -- with Potter, according to The Daily Telegraph.

He argues that other than 'superficially apparent common points', there's nothing similar between the books.

While the works of Tolkien and Lewis show 'a transcendence and the beauty of the infinite', he claims Harry Potter books have an 'inverted and confused spirituality: A world where bad is good' and that they are characterised by a 'vague, new-age philosophy.'

Exposure to Harry Potter is definetly more of a danger to children than all those Catholic priests who molest them.

From another article:
The paper also said that the books led towards new-age spirituality, known to be something that Pope Benedict XVI dislikes, and led to an unhealthy interest from youngsters in satanism.

The Pope has previously said that the books contain "subtle seductions" that undermine children's religious development by blurring good and evil.

Ah yes, the former Nazi would know about blurring good and evil I suppose.
OMG there's a Rifftrax of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone!

Here's the site's description:
"The most profitable bespectacled Potter since Henry F. and Sherman T. combined, tales of Harry's indoctrination into Satan's dark and unholy arts have delighted dozens of children the world over. And this, the first movie of the series, ably helmed by Chris Columbus captures all the wonder, magic, and reckless child endangerment, thanks in no small part to the scene chewing of some of Britain's hammiest actors. Starring Daniel Radcliffe, years before he gave everyone a good long look at his Nimbus 2000, Emma Watson and some kid who makes Ron Howard look swarthy, Harry Potter and the Something of Something Else is the most fun you'll have giving J.K. Rowling yet more of your money this year!

Mike, Kevin and Bill Dumbledore their way through a Haggrid of laughs in this, the Hogwartiest of all RiffTrax! (We have no idea what any of that means!)"

I MUST HEAR IT! But I am broke. Curses!

ETA: Also I really want a Mike Nelson Bobble Head for it is made of awesome!
Hey CW you can try to replace Supernatural with Reaper but we have the Puppy Dog Eyes of Doom and they don't! Reaper can not possibly win!

My brother got a car and it's a piece of crap. I've named it Homer because it doesn't like to work.

I'm posting my answers to the character meme I posted the other day: I was asked about Tara Maclay, Dean Winchester, Severus Snape, Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy )
2007 Fanfiction Meme yoinked from [livejournal.com profile] colin_chaotic

Stories I wrote (and posted):
"Denial" HP:Harry/Draco (sort of)
"If We Sleep Together" MST3K:Mike/Joel (sort of)
"Don't Panic" MST3K/Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy crossover:gen
"Greatest Hits of Mullet Rock" SPN:gen/crack
..."Means I Love You" SPN:gen
"Need" SPN:gen
"I Live With It Everyday" SPN:gen
"Jealousy" SPN:Dean/Sam
"For Claire"* SPN/BtVS crossover:Dean/Dawn and Sam/Buffy
"Love the One You're With" SPN/Veronica Mars crossover:Sam/Piz
"Three's A Crowd" SPN/Veronica Mars crossover:Dean/Piz and Dean/Sam
"A Dear Veronica Letter" Veronica Mars: Piz/Veronica

My favorite: "Denial", "Greatest Hits of Mullet Rock", "If We Sleep Together", "For Claire"

My best: "Greatest Hits of Mullet Rock"

Story most underappreciated by the universe: Um all of them? *L* No, I'll say "...Means I Love You"

Most fun story: Pretty much all the ones I listed as favorites and also "Don't Panic"

Sexiest story: "Jealousy", "Love the One You're With" and "Three's a Crowd" are the only ones where I attempted smut.

Story with the single sexiest moment: I'm changing this to the only story where I thought the "sex" came out well and that's "If We Sleep Together" and I don't mean the sex was good (it was intentionally written as a complete failure) but it's the only story I wrote with sex in it that I thought turned out well.

Hardest story to write: "Love the One You're With" and "Three's a Crowd" cause they're the only stories I didn't write in just one sitting; that I had to come back to over the course of days and write.

Most unintentionally telling story: "Jealousy", "Love the One You're With", and "Three's a Crowd" are telling in that apparently they let everyone see that I fail at writing stories with sex and/or actual plot. *facepalm*

*named that because I wrote it for [livejournal.com profile] visionofblue and couldn't come up with an actual title *L*

I got a couple of Christmas cards after Christmas. On the 27th I got one from [livejournal.com profile] visionofblue and yesterday a card arrived from [livejournal.com profile] so_severus. She also included a hilarious slash version of "The Night Before Christmas" set at Hogwarts which she said I could share with you guys.

A very Snarry Christmas poem )

Also I made icons for Lyrical Pursuit winners

In honor of J.K Rowling's big announcement, a new version of an old icon:

I've been doing some cool image manipulating for icons lately.

See some before and afters )

I <3 Sam Rockwell and Harry Potter )

I tried watching The Women's Murder Club tonight because Angie Harmon is hotter than the sun. Unfortunately it was like Sex and the City with crime solving. Total chick show. :(

I made a Spydaddy icon and some Harry Potter icons featuring Buffy quotes.

So I've been working on this Snape/Lily fanfic based on this 50 sentence challenge. You are supposed to write 50 sentences of a pairing based on prompts. I didn't actually sign up for the challenge, I just wanted to see if I could do it. I've finished 20 and I don't know if I'll finish or not. I am posting what I have so far in the hopes that I can get some feedback and possibly be inspired to finish it or be told I suck and shouldn't bother. *L*

This is totally unbetad so watch out for atrocious use of punctuation )
Buffy-"That doesn't really work for me. We're just going to the magic shop. No school supplies there."
Dawn-"Yeah, Mom, I'm not going to Hogwarts."
(Dawn laughs, Buffy just stares at her)
Dawn-"Geez, crack a book sometime."
My favorite line-

"Snape was looking as though the first person to ask him for a love potion would be force-fed poison."


ETA: This part me laugh out loud for a whole other reason-

"Instead he (Harry) contented himself with scrawling a note to Ron: Let's do it tonight."

I know it wasn't intentional but it's just so suggestive.
I will not use Umbridge's quill to write "I told you I was hardcore".

If a classmate falls asleep, I will not take advantage of that fact and draw a Dark Mark on their arm.

Starting a betting pool on the fate of this year's Defense Against the Dark
Arts teacher is tasteless and tacky, not a clever money-making concept.

I will not start every Potions class by asking Professor Snape if today's project is suitable for use as a sexual lubricant.

Adding the name "Bueller" to Professor Binns' roster is not funny.

Seamus Finnegan is not "after me Lucky Charms".

It is exceptionally tasteless to tell Professor Lupin that "Once you go Black, you never go back."

I will not bring a Magic Eight Ball to Divination class.

Asking "How do you keep a Gryffindor in suspense?" and walking away is only funny the first time.

I will stop asking when we will learn to make "Love Potion Number Nine".

I will not greet Professor McGonagall with "What's new, pussycat?"

I will not take out a life insurance policy on Harry Potter.

Bringing fortune cookies to Diviniation class does not count for extra credit.

It is not necessary for me to yell "BURN!" every time Snape takes points away from Gryffindor.

Polishing my wand in the common room is acceptable. "Polishing my wand" in the common room is not.

I will not charm Firenze pink and call him "my little pony."

I will not address the Professor with a loud "Heil Umbridge!" and accompanying salute.

Screaming "VOLDEMORT!" in crowded hallways is not in good taste.

I will not send shampoo to Snape's office, no matter how badly he needs it.

Singing "Slytherins are Sexier" in Potion's class will not get me extra points.

I am not allowed to declare an offical "Hug A Slytherin Day".
Did you read my HP drabble yet? Why yes, I am a feedback whore. ;)

I made Slytherin icons. The text on almost all of them is from Happy Bunny merchandise. I also have a few textless Jensen Ackles icons.

Purebloods only )

Why can't a person just hate another without it being because of sexual tension? )
