Anyway, I wanted to take a break from writing today, so I played around in PSP and made a teaser poster for HBP. Er... yeah. Which version is better?
I really wanted to put the Dark Mark in there, but I feel like the picture looks cluttered with it, y/n? Also, I tried to add little silhouettes of Harry and Dumbledore on their brooms, but my attempt to draw failed (as usual).
Mmm... what else... oh, I saw Atonement! It wasn't as good as I expected. I'm not really into artsy movies, so maybe that's why. I think the best part of the movie was James McAvoy.
American Idol starts on January 15th! Omg, this is going to be the first season of AI I won't be able to follow religiously :( My roommate has a TV, but she keeps it on her side of the room, so I can't very well expect to be able to watch every Tuesday and Wednesday at 7pm. Maybe I'll make the long trek over to my friend's building and hog her lounge. Mmm, I don't know if I'll find time to stalk IDF like I usually do, either. I hope I do, because IDF is part of the reason why I love AI. That and the hot boys. Who are sometimes very obviously having buttsecks behind the scenes, andofcourseIdontmeanCake.
Speaking of Cake, nominations opened at cake_awards yesterday! If you haven't gone over there yet, you should... and nominate the Brokeback Murtle trailers for best fanvid! [/self pimpage]
And a rec: Things That Change by eutychides. I swear I've heard this fic mentioned somewhere before, but I didn't read it until Carla recommended it in the H/D Facebook group last night. It's... a bit different from what I usually read. A lot more twisted and angsty. And it has pretty explicit mpreg, which usually squicks me out, but for some reason I just couldn't stop reading this fic.
*eyes Word documents apprehensively*
I promise I'll update SKOM. Soon. As in... definitely before summer break. Sorry :( I'm trying to work out a bunch of kinks with the development of the plot, and it's not going too well. I won't have a lot of time once school starts, especially with College Ambassadors picking up (if anyone of you get admitted into USC, let me know!), beta work for Vana's fic, and hd_worldcup. Sigh. I feel like I should have utilized my winter break time more efficiently...
