I have been to two film screenings today, and being the secret sensitive soul that I am, I did tear up (a lot). Then my companion and I, let us call her Someone Who Is Terribly Bossy And Terribly Efficient, went for a walk and had ice cream and fresh fruit shakes. I had the cheese ice cream with bits of real cheese in it, and it was glorious. It was as glorious as the fresh mango shake.

A few days ago I stumbled upon what is probably my most favourite Harry Potter post-canon depiction. THIS IS NOW MY HEADCANON. He is also wearing a Weasley jumper, bless. A few people have told me that Harry looks very Asian, very brown, specifically, very Desi here. It is enormously pleasing, let me tell you. Even though I am of a different kind of Asian.

One of the amazing content found in tumblr (a box of chocolates of a website, some fantastic, some you find to have been expired and awful) is that meta that James Potter's family could have very well been Asian witches and that Potter is an Anglicized version of a South Asian name P - something, I forget. But that meta is amazing. ETA: There are TWO OF THEM. REALLY AMAZING POSTS. Come have cheese ice cream and fresh mango shake with me, metas!

In other Harry Potter links, let us show our love for comms like [community profile] hpdrizzle, which is now accepting sign-ups, and [community profile] hp_coffeehouse which is accepting fills for month-long prompts. Let me think on signing up for Drizzle. I have neglected participating in this fandom for too long.

And of course, for the ASOIAF crowd, we have [profile] valar_morekinks which accepts all kinds of prompts, kinky or not, cracky or not.

I've been feeling so tired from this week, and thinking about the coming week is just ugh. Let me toddle off for a brownie and dream about cheese ice cream.

What are your other comm suggestions? Do you think cheese ice cream is amazing?

i love that brown harry has become so common i've seen him just casually pop up in fanart and fics. i remember when there were outright wars over blaise being black, so, progress!

yep! people loved writing him as this attractive, suave italian playboy type--it was pretty much fanon-fact that he was italian. he was paired with ginny a lot. i don't remember any specific singular blowups, but there were definitely people saying things like they wanted blaise to be hot and now their ships were ruined, etc.

i know!! the rebuttal was of course "ok but jkr describes him as hot still (high cheekbones, etc, with a mother beautiful enough to ensnare several husbands). and black. also black italians exist. sorry you're a racist."

Cheese ice cream sounds amazing! What kind of cheese was it?

And that meta looks awesome, I'm going to check out the links...
