I know some of us are feeling a little bit angsty about the Cursed Child publicity revving up this week. I found this art the perfect antidote to my 19 years later blues:

Happily Ever After by anon, at [ profile] harrydracompreg. I know not all of my flist are into mpreg, but this just shows a gorgeous (and strangely familiar ;)) family scene, nothing to do with pregnancy or birth. It's made me beam and remember how fandom can transform anything, even the bloody Epilogue, into something amazing. H/D, SFW.

Another thing I'd like to say is PLEASE can everyone dream up some beautiful Dracos for us all to enjoy at Draco's party (STARTING IN TWO DAYS at [ profile] dracomalfoy) so I can think about that, and not whatever horror (I'm expecting bald/ ugly Draco, at the very least) awaits us at Cursed Child.

I have no time to compose anything coherent, but I NEED to splurge feels in your general direction.

SPOILERS and flailing )

I'm SO happy about my assignment I could cry. Honestly. *hugs self* *hugs everyone* *sniffles incoherently*

The [ profile] hd_erised mods are goddesses. How can they match all those disparate people up and somehow make it all WORK?

I really really hope everyone is feeling good about their match. If you're feeling worried, I don't know if it helps, but last year I was pretty intimidated and unsure about writing for the super-fabulous tryslora, but it turned out to be a great experience.

Good luck, everyone!

I-- I don't know what this is. How-- I-- ? There used to be words, and sentences, and things, and now there's just THIS ART.

It's the hand. Harry's hand, and Draco's wand, and OMG THE TROUSERS, but the HAND, NGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH, I just-- OH GOD WHYYYY, I USED TO HAVE A LIFE AND NOW THIS.

I was good and resisted posting it here full size so that you can all go to tumblr and worship the artist in person. But really I want to wallpaper my house with it. Or just my retinas. I could have it surgically implanted on my retinas, yes?

It has been quite a while since anything got me right in the feels like this, like I'm just FIZZING with H/D and my entire body is just a ball of SLASHY FANGIRL ECSTASY, and it just won't stop.

Draco's arse. It's some form of Dark magic. But the hand, though. *whimper*

Well, it was my birthday last week, and I had the most amazing time. Me and Mr Birds and the boys had a really super family day planned, and that all went well and I'll tell you about it in a bit. And I had a great time later, seeing my friend and going out to the cinema, and that was fabulous, too.

But, the thing that really floored me was the ~~FANDOM LOVE~~. OMG, you chaps really know how to make a person feel special. The internet connection where we were was a bit crappy, but I kept getting bursts of it and then just DYING with laughter or hotness or just perfectness at the things that were happening on LJ. [ profile] catplusfox just said it was like I was buried in fandom love, and, wow, it's a great thing to be, that's all I am saying.

I have to share all the brilliant things with you. I honestly feel like the luckiest bird ever. Take a deep breath, because it's all too good and too much fun.

An embarrassment of riches )

I was going to also talk about RL stuff that happened that day, but it got too long, so I'll do birthday part 2 very soon.

I didn't get mine yet, but, looking at my flist, they are starting to go out RIGHT NOW!

OMG, I am literally quivering with excitement. I can't wait to see who I get; I just want to get down in their sign up and roll around in it.


Oh, this is just too thrilling. I am refreshing my email like an idiot. Have you got yours? Are you waiting? Are you excited? PLEASE come and squee and snivel with me.

And here is some love for the dear [ profile] hd_erised mods who spent all week fretting over getting us all the perfect match, and are sending ALL those assignments out, one by one  ♥ ♥ ♥

The subject line is the only thing I can think of to accurately describe my feelings on reading the A/N for the fic I am about to rec. Yes, I did flail. [ profile] omi_ohmy has the incriminating evidence via email. :DDD I keep going back to check it ACTUALLY DOES SAY MY NAME on it, but, as of 9 pm this evening, it does. (I may take a screenshot just in case SG has a change of heart. You think I am kidding.) Anyway. I've finished breathing into a paper bag, just about. :D

This Summer and other recs... )
Hope you are all having the best week possible.

I know you all knew this a gazillion years ago, but this is the first I heard of it. They filmed a scene in DH2 where Draco breaks ranks from the crowd of Death Eaters and ran past Voldemort to throw Harry his wand...

And David Yates talks about it here:

"There was also a moment where Tom … we had this scene. In this scene where Tom throws Harry a wand, which is a big deal – a hugely different ending. It’s not a different ending, it’s a different moment. And we thought, “Oh my god, is that too much of a turnaround for Malfoy?” So Malfoy suddenly becomes a good guy – so that’s what Steve [Kloves, screenwriter] wrote.

Actually it felt really uplifting and you went, “Oh cool.” But when we put it all together, I think [producers] David Heyman – and David Barron in particular – were concerned about it because they didn’t feel it was most effective for the character, where Steve and I were quite keen because we thought, “That’s a really uplifting moment.” But we cut it out eventually..."

I am gutted. I actually, really feel quite strange and upset about this. I am sure I will get a grip in a bit. But meanwhile *sob* *sniffle* *throws self on flist's bosom for comforting*

p.s. I also laughed quite a bit at all the "Voldemort has a NOSE?" comments on the video :D

E.T.A. I just made poor Mr Birds sit down and watch this. I said "look look LOOK OMG!" He watched it carefully and said "Whoa, Voldemort has a NOSE!!!"
