a meme from onlyechoes:

Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random.

Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

seven things!Collapse )

lloyd, i'm ready to be heartbroken
DAY XX - IF YOU HAD TO MEET ONE MEMBER OF THE CAST, WHO WOULD IT BE

DAVID MOTHERFUCKING TENNANT, THAT'S WHO.

unless, you know, you're supposed to pick a fairly regular cast member, in which case i'd probably say either alan rickman, jason isaacs or helena bonham carter, but i don't really care for that. idk, i just never really had. BUT ALSO BECAUSE DOCTOR TENNANT IS IN THE BUILDING AND SHIT, IS HE AWESOME OR WHAT.

I'D JUST PROBABLY FALL AT HIS FEET AND BABBLE INANE THINGS ABOUT HOW WONDERFUL HIS SADFACE AND HAPPYFACE WERE IN DOCTOR WHO.


DAY XXI - OUT OF ALL THE CHARACTERS THAT DIED, IF YOU COULD BRING ONE BACK, WHO WOULD IT BE

oh man, what. you know. well. you know. i'd really like to say sirius, but because i ship sirius and remus, and remus dies, i can't. because sirius without remus is just wrong. unless! like, because sirius doesn't die, remus doesn't die either, you know, the butterfly effect or whatever. because sirius would totes be there protecting his ickle moonykins from any harm! so in that case, fuck yeah. but if not, totes dobby. 'CAUSE DOBBY'S A FREE ELF.

ALSO JUST SAW YESTERDAY'S NIKITA. HOLY MOTHER OF ASSASSINS, DID NOT EXPECT THAT!

DAY XVIII - LEAST FAVE BOOK

i honestly have no idea. i think it's a tie between chamber of secrets and goblet of fire, but i just, i don't know. i do like all the books, and they've all got different things i love about 'em, so it's kind of hard to say, really. but those two would probably be it, if i had to choose.


DAY XIX - DO YOU PREFER THE BOOKS OR FILMS

probably the books. i mean, they're the originals, right? and they've got all the small details the films don't have, what with the films getting too long and all that. and i don't know, i just. yeah. i read the books first (obviously) so i've loved them longer. i always knew i'd love the films, too, and they're gorgeous, but while they've got their little flaws, the books pretty much don't. (which is kinda lulzy, actually, because when it first became huge in finland, i was still quite young, and i was so determined not to get interested. no idea why, i'd just decided that pfft, books about a magical world, not for me, lol. but then i got into it (because my family made me, lol) and continued to be into it like a crazy person, so i guess here we are.)

(lol, and absolutely no worries about the mood thingamy - i just read the most depressing arthurmerlin fic that ever depressed, and i'm still all teary about it. FIC, WHY YOU DO THIS TO ME.) anyway, now i'm off to sleep, what with having to be awake again in less than six hours!

DAY 15 - WHO WOULD BE YOUR BEST FRIENDS AT HOGWARTS (THREE ONLY)

i ... don't quite know, actually. luna, perhaps? and perhaps neville, as well? i could definitely see myself being friends with both of them. neville's that sort of a bit of an endearingly bumbling person, and luna's just beyond wonderful. and then there's harry, of course, but i don't know about best friends. possibly hermione, though, because i expect we'd find we've got quite a bit in common and all that.


DAY 16 - ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE DEATHLY HALLOWS MOVIE OR SCARED IT WON'T DO THE BOOK JUSTICE

oh man, so freaking excited, it's ridiculous. i mean, i loved deathly hallows, part one and there's really not much i'd change about it, and it's been like that pretty much with every potter film, so you know. and part two is just, oh man. i'm absolutely certain it'll do the book justice - though perhaps a bit afraid of how they'll approach remus's death and the way he, sirius, james and lily are seen by harry in the forbidden forest, but other than that, nothing, and besides, as i've now seen the trailer, i'm pretty sure it's all going to be fabulous. and oaslkfjlsk;alkdls is it here yet? i'm sure i'll be crushed at the end of it, because it means the end of the potter series and a huge part of my childhood, but how could i not be excited? if it's anything like part one, it'll be beyond amazing.

and i've now seen all four episodes of season five of lewis, and just, oaslkjfl;alkfjdlsk why only four episodes, why? it's so wrong, i can't wait a whole year for more new episodes. (assuming they'll renew it, which they'd fucking better do. twenty episodes all in all is nearly not enough, okay.) well, luckily enough i'm sure they'll be showing it in finland soon enough, so there's always rewatching.

DAY 13 - LEAST FAVE MOVIE

probably the chamber of secrets. i dunno, the first two movies have never been my favourites, and the first one's better than the second so, you know. but then again, maybe it's just because it's been a while since i've actually seen COS, so i guess we'll see in a few days how it really is (planning on rewatching the second movie sometime this week).


DAY 14 - TEAM VOLDEMORT OR TEAM HARRY

um. what? team harry, of course. what a silly question.

30 day harry potter challenge.


so i was actually planning on making this an intelligent post, but i've no idea what i was planning on writing here, because right now, i'm pretty much just two seconds from falling asleep. head, meet pillow. so ta-ta, darlings, nothing even remotely important from me today.

DAY 11 - WHAT CHARACTER WOULD YOU SAY YOU ARE MOST LIKE

i'll probably have to say luna lovegood. the next one would be this weird combination of neville longbottom and hermione, but idk idk, luna's just a bit of an oddity, she's not afraid to be herself and she's a little bit out there, and even if i'm not exactly like that, it's certainly something to strive for. i think luna's really someone you can admire through all her scenes in the series, and that's more you can say for most of the characters. so yeah, luna - perhaps not because i'm like her, but because i'd quite like to be like her.


DAY 12 - FAVE SHIP

well, that depends. if you think about canon pairings, i'd say ron/hermione. do not even get me started on them, oh my god. i love 'em to bits. i know a lot of people don't really feel it, that it's the obvious pairing and that they've got no chemistry, but for me, that's just not true. i think they're wonderful. they've got that childhood friends turned lovers thing going on, and they're still best friends and together, and i love it, because their friendship totally translates into their relationship, like their endless bickering, and idk, they're just so bloody adorable.

(and then there's harry & hermione, which is my absolutely favourite friendship ever in the series. i know a lot of people ship them romantically, but not me. idk, i just see them more as sister & brother than anything else. and i think their friendship is best portrayed in deathly hallows, because oalskjfld;alkjfdls she's just always there for harry, and he's always there for her. they're just as good friends with ron, but it's not exactly the same, is it? harry and hermione are more alike, and i love 'em love 'em.)

ALSO ALSO JAMES/LILY. BECAUSE OH MY GOD HOW COULD ANYONE POSSIBLY BE MORE OTP THAN THOSE TWO? ♥

and then there's the fanon pairings, which, oh dear. so there's obviously sirius/remus, which is basically a canon pairing anyway, and then there's harry/draco, which was pretty much the first slash pairing i shipped, so there's a lot of nostalgia there. lol, potter was the first fandom i read fic in, and naturally i started immediately with the harry/draco. those two are pretty much the big ones, i think. (well, then there's neville/luna, but that's a bit of a side-pairing for me more than anything else.)

DAY 09 - LEAST FAVE MALE CHARACTER

oh dear. i have no idea. perhaps vernon dursley? i suppose i could say pettigrew, because in the actual books/movies he's the kind of person you want to kick in the balls for betraying his friends, but, you know. he was a good guy, once, and i adore fics and stuff (of the mwpp era) that portray peter as a marauder, as james and sirius and remus's friend, because that's what i truly believe he was. i think something just got fucked up and he ended up as one of the bad guys, and that's how it is, but i can't stand it when people think he was all evil from the beginning, because if he was, i hardly think he'd have managed to be friends with the marauders for eight sodding years.

so yeah, vernon, because oh my fucking god, man, what is your problem, okay. you do not lock a child inside a cupboard, augh. like, i enjoy him as a character, but JESUS CHRIST SOMEONE PUNCH HIM.


DAY 10 - HORCRUXES OR HALLOWS

hallows, i should think. apart from the fact that they seem more benevolent (at least they don't require splitting your soul by killing someone) they're also quite a bit more interesting. don't quite know why, though. perhaps because the actual story of the hallows, of the peverell brothers, is intriguing and i love love love it beyond belief. yes, the horcruxes are interesting too, and i like what rowling did with them (voldemort's seven horcruxes, harry being one of them and having to die etcetera) but ... i don't know. there's more to the hallows, i think. yes, the horcruxes are different objects/snakes/harrys, but they're still, intrinsically, the same, whereas the hallows are not only completely different things, they also mean different things. but idk. mostly it's because the hallows gave harry the chance to win the war, and also partly because the stone gave us the scene with lily & the marauders in the forest, and i love that scene so freaking hard you have no idea.

lol, any chance to see more of the mwpp era people!

30 day harry potter challenge.


also, rewatching season five of doctor who now, because i've missed it like mad and i thought it'd be appropriate, what with season six starting in just a few weeks. (which, oh god, so excited about it i cannot even what what.) time for the weeping angels tomorrow, which i've got to time well, because like hell am i watching those episodes in the middle of the night. oaslkjfdls;alkjfdls seriously so fucking creepy. AND YET SO AMAZING, TOO.

hi again! i've been sort of absent, sorry. had some unexpected night shifts, so i've not really had the opportunity to reply to your comments, but i'd just like to thank everyone who commented on my last entry. you're all so wonderful. ♥


DAY 07 - FAVE FEMALE CHARACTER AND WHY

hermione granger, oh my god. just. why so awesome, girl? i'd say bellatrix, but mostly i just can't get over how awesomely insane she is & also helena bonham carter's epicness. so yeah, hermione. i don't know, it's not just because she's the main female character in the series, it's really mostly because she's someone i can admire. i know she's fictional, but if she were real? shit, she'd get this world fixed up in a week.


DAY 08 - WHAT DO YOU THINK WOULD BE YOUR FAVE LESSON

possibly care of magical creatures, but also maybe not, because, um, the kind of animals they tend to have aren't always the kind i'd find cute and cuddly. so perhaps DADA, charms, or transfiguration. probably charms. BUT OH. do you count the flying lessons they had in the first book/movie? 'cause that'd be pretty damn awesome.

DAY 05 - FAVE MALE CHARACTER AND WHY

harry potter walking down the street, harry potter~

no, but seriously. harry's my favourite male character, because a) he's the main character, which means we get to know him the best, and b) he's the first of the characters in the series i ever loved, and he's just, i don't know. i know a lot of people don't find him that interesting, that he's kind of a dumb git, but i don't think so. i know he's got flaws, and i know that's sometimes the reason people don't like him as much, but that's ridiculous. yes, he's a character, but he's supposed to represent an actual person so of course he's got flaws. of course he's gonna be a bit fucked up considering the way he's lived his life, of course he's going to be self-absorbed and shit - he's a teenager, for fuck's sake. that's what teenagers do. i like that he's not all ~heroically mature~ all the time, in fact, that's one of the reasons i love him so much. so yeah:

MY NAME IS HARRY P, TO THE O TO THE T, TO THE T, TO THE E, TO THE R, YOU SEE. HE'S THE MAGIC MAN, HE PUTS THE HEX IN THE CITY, DON'T CALL HIM HARRY POTTER, 'CAUSE MY NAME IS H PIDDY.


DAY 06 - WHAT HOUSE WOULD YOU WANT TO BE IN

oh dear. i don't know. gryffindor, probably? slytherin's cool, but i'm not cunning enough to be there. and besides, sharing a common room with draco malfoy? i love him and all, but he can be pretty nasty when he wants to be. but you know, ravenclaw and hufflepuff wouldn't be bad, either, i guess. but anyway, gryffindor. for nostalgia's sake, if nothing else.

30 day harry potter challenge.


... and so our cat's even worse than before. we're actually taking him to the vet tomorrow, because he's got absolutely no energy whatsoever - he doesn't eat, he doesn't clean himself, he just sleeps and doesn't move unless he notices that he's peed on himself. (no, seriously. i actually have to buy a new mattress, because mine's totally destroyed by cat pee. um.) i just hope there's actually something to be done about it, you know? i know he's old (about fifteen) but there's still hope, right? our other cat's over seventeen and she's got no problems at all. i just. idk. i know it's different for all cats, but. just. oh man. D:

DAY 03 - IS THERE ANY OF THE FILMS ADAPTATIONS THAT HAVE MADE YOU ANGRY BECAUSE THEY'VE IGNORED IMPORTANT PARTS OF THE BOOK

not as such, no. i mean, sure, i was disappointed about a few things that weren't included (like dudley's scene with harry in the beginning of deathly hallows. i know it was a scene they could skip without any harm to the actual plot, and considering the dursleys' minimal screen time in the movies, it was quite a good decision, but idk, i just loved that scene in the book and i'd have loved to see it in the movie, as well) but that's just how it goes. there are so many details and subplots in the books that they just can't put in the films, and i get that. and i don't like hating on films/tv/whatever for small things like that, because i'm mostly all about actually enjoying the experience instead of thinking about it too much. so yeah, i'm good.


DAY 04 - LEAST FAVE FEMALE CHARACTER AND WHY

i suppose i could say ginny, but then i'd be lying, because i'm only anti-harry/ginny. i quite like ginny, actually, because she can be badass when she wants to be. but you know. i don't know, really. i don't really dislike anyone in the potter series.

but probably cho chang? i don't dislike her, but i'm quite indifferent to her. as a person, i'd probably say someone like petunia, but i find her interesting as a character, whereas cho is just sort of ... dull.

30 day harry potter challenge.


oasljfld;alkfjdlskjfsldfjsl one of our cats is so freakin' dumb. but mostly old. oh man. he's just pathetic these days. twice now he's attempted to jump onto my bed, and both times he got stuck in the sheets with his hind legs scrabbling for air just inches from the floor. aw, poor thing, i had to go and save him both times. /cuddles ♥
