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 cannot stop LISTENING to Dreamer by Charli XCX, there is something so smooth and so u n f about Raye's delivery of her verse. I've been blasting it all morning. 

Froths of bougainvillea in the sunlight, ice-cold drinks, and mango ice cream are the only great things about unbearably warm weather. 

There is the beginning of a bit of restlessness: I want to go out with my computer and my books, do work somewhere different, somewhere I've never been before like a new coffee shop and treat myself to some alone time there, but the heat is making me want to just wear strapless tops all day and moonily draw hearts around the words NORTH POLE.

GOALS for today:
1. Read the two assigned readings on local governance. Take notes for essay.

This LOVELY ART RECsapphics of colour couple by the ladyoflemons!

I'm in LOVE. Look at this amazing art. Look their lovely faces and the clean curves of their necks. Look at Pansy's haircut and Ginny's freckles.
Now I wish I could read a fic of how they got together.

The Holiday Gloom For Seconds visited.

'Is that a choir?' some may ask. The Holiday Gloom For Seconds! Those slices of moments when one pauses mid-cheer and become oddly reflective, even in front of the Christmas cake.

So it visited, and I realised that I've been many things:

1. Fest reading-and-commenting slacker
2. F-list reading-and-commenting slacker
3. Triumphant internet hibernator

And the best, (4) Shameless art fangirl.

Mid-2012, when I was new and more shy than I am now, I caved in and tucked a private message to [livejournal.com profile] naadi. If that were in real life, it would be a hideously blushing person fumbling with a mailbox and a note which went something like: 'Hello! This is to let you know, Very Talented Artist, that I wish to be able to send you gushing notes without appearing dodgy. Also, I'm in love with your pieces.'

Of course [livejournal.com profile] naadi's kindness was in heaps as the talent, so I was permitted to friend away. I think there'd been blubbering with the blushing.

That was in my old account.

In this new, lucky account, I got to prompt once in[livejournal.com profile] hd_fanart. Single prompt got claimed! Just before the full-blown internet hibernation commenced, prompt's art posted!

Title: Please Say You'll Spend Eternity With Me, Dear
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] naadi
Pairing: Harry/Draco cross-over with Good Omens' Crowley/Aziraphale
Why:Two sets of my favourite people in a piece so gorgeous, so warm, and so meticulously rendered! Such a delight looking at this, and then there's head-tilting to see how the artist saw the parallels between the pairings. And! The meeting of eyes and hands in the midst of books, which makes me utterly irrational with glee. *strokes art*

It's been ages since I've checked anything remotely unrelated to uni, and I thought it would be nice to start the online New Year with some lovable art stroking. Also, cuddling. It is cold.
