Spoilerific answer to a question raised by fandom: )

I am currently packing for a trip to Sheffield. I'll be gone a week, with no internets!!! So if anything interesting happens or if there's any fics you reeeeeally think I should know about, then drop me a comment and let me know :D Cos I expect I will be declaring flist bankruptcy like I did the last time I left my flist untouched for a week!

Also, I should really cut my nails. I keep hitting capslock at the same time as the shift key.

Additional things I need to say, in no particular order:

More spoliers )

Also, not happy about the possible reappearance of Strikethrough 2007. Not feeling the love, LJ, not at all!

DH spoilertastic

I've just finished reading Deathly Hallows and... ) I think I need to go and find some food now. It's a long way past dinner time.

FFS, I'm sure a book launch has no business being this much of a fuss! They mentioned the leaked pages on the news this evening, going as far as to show blurred images of the scanned pages. I was covering my eyes and shouting at the telly, which my mother found highly amusing. At least I don't have to worry about people willfully posting spoilers in my comments - very few people actually know this journal exists.

Anyway... I'm not going to get book 6 reread in time, given that I'm still on book 5. Maybe I'll flick through the last chapters just to remind myself of the mood.

I'm also debating whether to place a last-minute order with Amazon and then chew on my fingernails waiting for the post to arrive (could be any time between 11 and 3!) or to rush out to Tescos and snap a copy up first thing on saturday.

I'm getting so nervous about actually reading DH. I can't even let myself speculate about the possibilites...

Also, I saw OotP on saturday, but I'm going to wait untill I've seen it again before making my comments.

So, I have one week to read OotP before the film comes out, and another week to read HBP before book 7 comes out. Given that I read HBP in 6 hours the day it arrived, I can't see that being a problem.

I just thought I'd check in and say "Hi!" to people, especially folks who I've recently friended and are friending me back. I am reading fics at the mo, and I have this long list in my bookmarks of things I need to rec... but I never seem to find the time to comment or actually make the posts. I'm a bad person, I know. I keep waiting for that lottery ticket to come good so I can devote my life to fun things instead of boring work. *le sigh*

One thing I did want to post before we get to book 7 is Secrets by Vorabiza. This story is a whopping 62 chapters and nearly 42,000 words long, but it's worth the effort. I decided when I read it about a year ago (yes, I suck that much with my reccing) that, if I didn't like how JKR ended book 7, I'd choose this story as my alternative.

Also, I've been thinking about posting a song-fic challenge for a while, but I'm going to wait to see what comes out of book 7 first. Although if DH ends with Harry going off into the sunset with the Weaselette, I may have to execute a full denial "la-la-la I'm not listening" act and revert to believing in aforementioned fanfic...

I'm almost afraid to read DH now.
