caramelsilver: (Harry Potter: Draco)
After Gilmore Girls and the Rory/Logan ship, so was Harry Potter and Draco/Ginny my first fandom. It was the fandom I wrote my first fics in (if you look, you'll find them, but I won't link you because it's horrible stuff. Really, truly, horrible stuff. All my D/G fics are truly crap.) But time flies and you move on from one fandom and into others.

But the last week I’ve been going on a Draco/Ginny fic reading spree. And to do so I’ve just checked out old rec list, and I’ve realised that the Harry Potter fandom is getting… if not exactly old (there are after all much older fandoms), but oldish. There are so many links that are broken, fics that have been taken down, authors who have deleted everything and vanished, old “classics” of the fandom, gone forever! And that makes me sad!

But it has also been really fun. I’ve read fics that was written in the Great Gap between GoF and OotP! Fics where Ginnys name is thought to be Virginia, and it’s so annoying that I almost can’t handle it. Fics with tropes that was new and fresh in the 00s, that are old and used up now, but so good and all that I want. (Arranged marriage fics 4evah!!!)

But it makes me wonder, all these dead links, and silent forums… Is the D/G fandom dead? Is the fandom producing new things? Are there new “classics” that should be read? Does anybody know?

Rec me your favorite Draco/Ginny fic!!

First thing first: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1. is awesome. If you're a fan, if you've read the book, you will love and adore this movie.

November is still being awesome. I'm getting some nerves for the gym exam, which I'm so not looking forward too. Is it Tuesday evening yet?

some personal shit that I don't really want to broadcast, so if you want to know you actually have to make an effort... Muhahhaha! )

Other things in list form:

- Nominations are going on over at [livejournal.com profile] narniaexchange. PLEASE, PLEASE PLEASE! go over there and nominate some fics. Please.

- Should I sign up for NFFR Secret Santa exchange?

- Do I need a new banner for the Three Sentence Ficathon?
caramelsilver: (Les Miserables: Enjorlas awesome)
- November is gearing up to be the most awesome month ever. On Friday I was at a PJ-cup where we (meaning Tensing, my church's youth choir) played volleyball all night against other youth groups/ choirs in our county, in our pyjamas. I had the best time. So worth the bruises I got from playing. I haven't played volleyball in four years or so. But it's easy to learn again, and so fun and social.

On Friday the 12th I am... GET THIS... GOING TO THE PRE-PREMIÈRE OF HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS!! Red carpet the whole shebang. I get to see this movie a whole week before everyone else. I am so happy! All because my parents happened to play golf with a guy who works at Sandrew Metronome (the company who distributes Harry Potter in Norway) and they mentioned that I'm kind of a big fan and he was like "I'll see if I can get her some tickets. We really want some real fans there." This was a couple of months ago. Then on Saturday there was an envelope in the mail for me... I thought it was the bracelet I won in the [livejournal.com profile] foresthouseeyes auction, but no, it was two tickets to Harry Potter. I was speechless for an hour.

Then on Saturday the confirmation year starts up again. I love being involved with that. I get to hang out with awesome people who I only see in church. I love it.

On Tuesday 16th November, I have a gym exam, which I'm not looking forward to, except to be done with it. But the day after, the 17th, I'm going to go and watch Next to Normal again. This time on my own, so I can cry as much as I'd like.

Friday 19th I'm going to go on a Tensing weekend trip, where we'll have fun and sing and prepare for our Christmas concert.

Then, the 26th I'm going to the theatre again to watch a new production of The Secret Garden. It's in New Norwegian and apparently videogames are involved? I'm not sure, but it will probably be fun.

And to top off the awesome month that will have been November, my mother and I are going to go and watch AHA on the 30th.

TOP THAT FOR AN AWESOME MONTH!!!

- Today it's exactly a month until I turn twenty. How freaking scary is that? On the plus side, after I turn twenty there's nothing I'm not allowed to do. I can buy my own liquor and drink it too! But dude! TWENTY! I'm getting old. I'll have to pay lots of money for my bus card. I... ugh.

- One more thing before I go to bed: Is there any interest for another Three Sentence Ficathon? I'm keen and more than happy to host it again. But I can't play with myself so you all have to come and play too. I'm thinking of making a post December 1. and let it run out December... Thoughts?

I have decided to name my MacBook Edgar, say hello.

Birthdays are brilliant, I got seven books from my friends and ca. 500 kr from my aunts and uncles. I'm going to go buy myself a sweater for those money.

The three sentence fic-a-thon is still going strong and here's the ones I've written this week:


Under the cut there's 6 Narnia, where one is crossed over with Harry Potter. )

Edited to add another that I had forgotten. Another Narnia one.

I bought the Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince dvd and saw it with my dad. I really really like this movie. I think it's great. Few things I noticed:

- Two dead rats have more chemistry than Harry and Ginny. God, those scenes were awful to watch.

- Cormac McLaggen is hot! (I want Cormac/Hermione fic! and I want it now! Sadly, it seems that fandom can't deliver on this one. I found one pretty nice one, but that's it. L'sigh- seems like I'm doomed to like the rarepairs.)

- I really like movie!Harry. He actually acts like a teenage boy. Fights with his mates and is sometimes arrogant. Yeah, I like it. Also, movie!Harry is funny.

- Draco Malfoy is brilliant in this movie. I love his emo suit of doom.

-I also noticed that Helena Bonham Carter was billed first after Emma Watson... What's up with that? Probably in her contract or something. Only way she would agree to come back for such a small part or something. Think I read that somewhere.

- For DH I really hope Matthew Lewis gets a billing.

Night my lovelies.
caramelsilver: (you suck)
I'm seven pages into my D/G fic exchange fic and I've not even gotten to the meat of the story! This is gonna be fairly long. Great. With all the school work I have to do, this will go *great*
caramelsilver: (nerd)
When I was younger (11-13) I liked to think that I knew very much. I couldn't wait to get grades and I was sure that I would do great. But when I got there I just did average, I mostly got 4+ (that's a C+ right?) and some 5 and a few 6 (A). I later learned that I could certainly get good grades if I just worked a little more for them. And then I got sick and I've missed tenth and eleventh grade.

But I started thinking what do I actually know? And I decided that I know a lot about few things.

Harry Potter:
I know a whole lot about Harry Potter. All the knew canon stuff JKR has revealed through the years. I know much about the movies, how they make them and such.

Chronicles of Narnia:
I know all canon here too. I know a lot about the author, CS Lewis. I know how they made the movie, I have the extended version with extra features, and I counting the days to when the next one comes out. May 16, 2008 if you're wondering. I check the production blog on Narnia.com, which are updated each month.

Lord of the Rings:
I think I know quite a lot about this too. I know all details about the movie (extra features? I love them!) I know a little about the first draft where Tolkien had Aragorn in love with Eowyn. (Being a A/E shipper I certainly like this draft;P)


Ancient Egypt:
Fascinates me so much. I wrote a paper on it when I was twelve. So I guess I know more than the average person, but I wish I knew more.

Religion:
Was my favorite subject in school, the only subject I got A's. I really impressed my teacher about my knowledge, mostly christianity since I'm christian, but I'm really good at remembering stuff. Sadly my memory is not so great after I got sick.

Looking up at my list, I realize that I know much about movies, I always watch the extra features. If a book interest me, I normally research it for more details. History interests me very much. I think that I might want to study it after I finish high school (which might take some years if I don't get well soon!)

Many people ranted on all the things they didn't like about DH right after the book came out. I didn't do that, but I'm doing it now. I just finish reading it for the second time and I have a few um….. issues that bothered me with this book, now that I’ve read it in a regular pace. This is really long so I'm putting it under a cut.

Under the cut are many things that irked me, be so warned. Lots of acclamations marks ahead:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - or Harry Potter the boy who survived on luck and his friends skills )

I just read this fabulous fic about Neville in DH, go read it!


Neville's Girls

[Oneshot Gen] There may be many things Neville doesn't know, but he does know that Hogwarts isn't Voldemort's school. He won't let them train up Death Eaters here. DH Spoilers.



I need a Neville icon....

I'm home!

1-Came home from lovely Palma Nova in Mallorca yesterday. Me and my mum had a lovely time, just relaxing in the sun. And we walked, and walked. I don't think I've walked that much in two years or something. I've gotten a beautiful tan. I will post pictures later.


2-I had this bizarre dream today. It was very weird, having something to do with toys and clothes. And I needed help to carry it. So suddenly three Draco's comes to help me. And they needed clothes, so I gave them three identical outfits. But then one of them wrinkles his nose and says they needed different clothes because they couldn't look the same!

I hope that was understandable. I just thought that was so hilarious, even dream-me started laughing. That's just such a "Draco"-thing to say=)

3-I'm really tired now. I think I will sleep the rest of this week. The Summer holiday are starting next weekend, and I'm going away on Saturday!

4-Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's stone are showing on tv now!
caramelsilver: (what addiction)
The trailer is quite flashy, but it looks so good. Uhh, Umbridge is just so anoying. We get a little look of the Centaurs, Luna casting a Patronus, the Weasley twins' mayhem and the thestrals. This is going to be a great movie me thinks=)


You will loose everything! What kind of stupid line is that?
caramelsilver: (Snark)
Sorry. It's been a long time since I've updated and read my f-list!

I have spent one week at my family's cabin this easter. That was maybe not the most fun vacation I've had. I spent most of the week in bed sleeping, the other eating chocolate and reading. I read four books in one week! Go me!

I changed the lay-out of my lj, I think it's pretty=P

I have spent some time talking Deathly Hallows theories, I don't have many but it's really fun hearing every bodies thoughts.

Cover art!

caramelsilver: (what addiction)
I'm almost having trouble breathing! Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows cover art is amazing, at least the UK one is, the US are a little...meh, boring? No I take it back. It has Voldemort on it so its kinda cool! But the UK one has Ron and Hermione too=)




US edition

UK edition

I am a lazy lazy person. I get tiered of just thinking of updating my LJ. But my fanfic is finished. I am really proud of it. I have posted it on ff.net, but because of some coding problem I can't post it on FIA. Every time I try to upload my story these "" get all wonky. In the mean time I'll post it here.

This is my first try at writing humor. Please tell me what you think.

I read a fanfic that was pretty angsty, but not that much. Anyway I started to cry, and I cried and cried, until I realized that I wasn't crying because of the fanfic. I was crying for me. I guess I needed a good cry 'cause I felt so much better after wards!

I just read the most funniest list: The List of Things Draco Malfoy is not Allowed To Do Go read it, I literally choked on my soda!
caramelsilver: (what addiction)
I got my W.O.M.B.A.T result back, and surprisingly I got Exceeds Expectations, considering how bad I thought I were doing, I'm very proud!
caramelsilver: (what addiction)
I did the W.O.M.B.A.T.S at JK.Rowlings site, Man that thing were hard! I'm not sure if I even got one single answer right. I don't think I knew anything. And this wasn't book related stuff, (thank god!) or else I would have been really embarrassed. NO, it was History Of Magic stuff, it was stuff which has never graced the pages of a Harry Potter book. I wonder if there are a person who got everything right out there? If it is, I am very impressed!
