"The salty Dornishmen were lithe and dark, with smooth olive skin and long black hair streaming in the wind. The sandy Dornishmen were even darker, their faces burned brown by the hot Dornish sun. They wound long bright scarfs around their helms to ward off sunstroke. The stony Dornishmen were biggest and fairest, sons of the Andals and the First Men, brown-haired or blond, with faces that freckled or burned in the sun instead of browning." ~ A Storm of Swords, p. 520

Given GRRM's response to the casting, I'm getting the feeling that his version of "dark, olive skin" is someone who looks like me.

(I'm a light skinned yellowish Southeast Asian in case you're wondering.)

"We all change. When you think about it, we're all different people all through our lives. And that's okay. That's good. You got to keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be. I will not forget one line of this. Not one day. I swear. I will always remember when the Doctor was me." ~The 11th Doctor

I'm going to miss you fish custard. :-(

A Harry Potter play?

The actor in me/theater nerd is very intrigued indeed.....

J.K. Rowling writing 'Harry Potter' prequel stage play

"To JK Rowling, from Cho Chang"

I am going to spread this video like fiendfyre. Everything said in this poem sums up all the feelings I've had towards Cho Chang for the past decade that I couldn't/was too lazy to put into words. I almost got teary eyed at the end.

COS closing

I sort of gave up the Chamber of Secrets forums, only to check in every few months to see how much the Snape forums will never change. If it's gone for good after this summer, I'm definitely going to feel like something is missing. I've moved on to many things in the last few years, and the rest of the fandom has been doing the same.

Re-post from tumblr cause damn this is too true.

A Quick Guide to Nice Guy(TM) Responses (aka You Can't Win):
  • Act friendly: "She lead me on! Bitch!"
  • Don't act friendly: "She didn't give me a chance! Bitch!"
  • Let them down nicely: "Well she said 'not right now', so I'll keep trying 'til she changes her mind."
  • Flat-out say no: "What?! But I'm so nice! What a bitch! I'll keep trying 'til she changes her mind because she OWES me now."
  • Date someone else: "Ugh, women only date jerks!"
  • Don't date someone else: "Hello?! You clearly are single and so am I, why aren't we naked yet?"
  • Marry someone else, have baby, die tragically fighting Voldemort:"Now I will torture her emotionally and physically abused son because I loved her so much and she married that jackass Potter instead!"

Best spam comment I've ever? XD

Most of the spambot comments I've received are usually a bunch of scrambled sentences formed in a paragraph that doesn't make sense. I've never had one that actually tried to put me down in anyway and do it coherently. This was in reply to my one of my old posts back from my rantings about misogyny against Lily Potter days. I've actually gotten a couple comments out of the blue since then, the last one just a few weeks ago. I guess my over 2 year posts are still reaching some people. So it doesn't surprise me that people may still think I suck. I accidently deleted the comment when trying to mark it as spam. It's still saved in my email and I've copy and pasted here:

"The following time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, however I actually thought youd have one thing fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you could possibly repair when you werent too busy in search of attention. 
Also read about the new threat to the peaceful existence. Peace or world war 3. http://worldwar3orpeace.blogspot.co m/"

Either this is another hater that's actually trying to send me a virus, or this is the best spam comment ever. 
I don't think I've been this devastated over fictional characters since Sirius Black died. And that was REALLY bad. Hell, this might be even worse.

Seriously, Steven Moffat. How am I supposed to rewatch seasons 5 and 6 without wanting to burst into tears? Really, how?

This is sad....

How long has it been since I've been here? Not only have I ignored this blog for my tumblr, I seem to not care about Harry Potter as much anymore. I haven't even been on Pottermore for the longest time. What has become of me? -_-

Maybe I should just turn this blog's theme to all things Avatar: The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra, which has now taken up my fandom life, and cross posts any long and in depth posts from my tumblr to here. Which wouldn't be much either way, I mainly just lurk everywhere I got these days. Again, what has become of me? -_-
Real life and Tumblr have taken me over. Someone reply to me.
