Random notes from the fannish portion of my weekend--
* Saw HP7.2 Saturday, along with the rest of the world (most of which I think were in our theater). I really thought I wouldn't cry all that much. I left the HP fandom after the hideous event at the end of Book 5 and have been distantly bitter about it ever since.
But at the first sight of Hogwarts, I burst into tears and spent the rest of the movie sobbing into a fistful of concession stand napkins. I guess I'm still a sucker after all.
* After the movie, I got conned into watching the first couple episodes of Suits. This show is like Cori-nip. It doesn't hurt that I've been looking for an excuse to get fannish about Gabriel Macht since Bad Company
in 2002 (when chelseafrew
and I devised a sweeping epic spy slash story between Agent Seale (who had no first name the whole movie) and Chris Rock's first character (who is on screen for all of 3 minutes before getting killed off)).
I don't think I'm ready to read fic yet, but I couldn't set a season pass fast enough when I got home.
has been amazing fun, though like a lot of people, I'm getting kind of burned out. I had to laugh at this week's new challenge--I was really, really, really hoping it would be darkfic, and then it was...the opposite. I think I write fluffy, funny stuff better than I write heavy angst, in general, but I can't really do it on command without some previous inspiration. I was panicking pretty badly until I remembered the one kind of fluffy and cracky idea I wanted to write a while ago. It might actually be better suited for a short-short anyway.
At least my team is doing well--back to second place this week! I'm not convinced we can overcome Team Gluttony at this point, but we seem a pretty stubborn bunch on the whole, so you never know.
