Hi, sorry I'm all up in HIH_Greathall ALL THE TIME. But two things!

1. Does anyone have this in PDF form or know where I could find it?: http://fanlore.org/wiki/The_Death_of_Narcissa_Black

I loved it ages ago and wanted to show my roommate, but I guess it is not on the Internet at all anymore!

2. I'm cleaning out my apartment. I do not want this illustrated HP blad (I posted pics of it here: http://hih-greathall.livejournal.com/359405.html), but maybe one of you wants it? It's just a 16 page sampler, so more cute little tchotchke than anything useful. If you'd like it, let me know and I'm happy to mail it to you.

In case any of you find it interesting! I'm a ride or die Slytherin--always identified as such, sorted as such at Pottermore (three times... just to make really, really sure), and sorted as such here.

Have you guys been sorted differently elsewhere? Or did/do you identify as something other than your HiH house?

1. Are any fellow HiH'ers making icons as well, Harry Potter or otherwise?
2. Seeking awesome Guardians of the Galaxy, Star Wars, and stock icons - would love any recs!

Is anyone around these parts good at making videos? If so, what program(s) do you recommend? Are there free programs? Do you know how to layer music over the video images? What, if anything, do you recommend to improve the quality of the video? How do you generally cut things and transition them smoothly? Any tips for the actual filming? Any free time in August?

I have Adobe Premiere and while I'm teaching myself via videos, I was curious if there is any wisdom you guys wish to impart unto me! I AM YOUR SPONGE, FILL ME UP WITH YOUR WATERY BRAIN SMARTS!

Trololololololol omg you guys, these tags! DO YOU REMEMBER HIH UNIVERSITY?!?! AND BOOK CLUB?!?! #OLD

HI THERE. Some of you know me. A LOT OF YOU DON'T HI, I'M SAMANTHA, I USED TO BE REALLY REALLY ACTIVE HERE and then I died and life happened and yes, anyway.

I'm going to Georgia/Tennessee to go to a music festival called Bonnaroo this week and, well. This is my first time going to one. Actually, this is my first time going to Georgia/Tennessee. I AM KINDA BORN AND BRED SOUTHERN CALIFORNIAN AND I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT. So my question to all you lovely people...

Have you had any experiences with music festivals, good or bad?
The weather outlook is super bad, kinda. Like muggy and rain and TORNADOES WHAT I only really deal with earthquakes and flash floods (lol not recently lbr) and wildfires.

Hi. I'm spastic and um. You guys are lovely people. <3

I feel like this has been news for ages but it's been officially confirmed that Eddie Redmayne will be playing Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

David Yates, who directed the final four Harry Potter films, will be directing and JK Rowling herself will be writing the script.

So I'm curious what other people think about the movie coming up. Do you like the idea of Eddie being Newt Scamander? (I've only ever seen him in Jupiter Ascending so I think I should watch some other things he's been in before I judge too hard...) Are you excited for another movie? Do you think that it'll be as good as the other Harry Potter movies?

Hellooooo! I was at BEA this week, and I happened to walk by Scholastic's booth as they were giving away blads of the new illustrated Harry Potter, so I took one to share with you guys!

Sorry I didn"t crop these.Collapse )

Apologies if everyone's already seen these.

What do you guys think? I'm sort of into it. I'm curious as to how much of the movie's aesthetic has influenced the art. Do you think that last page is Ron???

(And if anyone is curious about the trim size, it's actually a pretty large, square-ish book at 9" by 10.5")

Okay, I think that this is the oddest request that I have ever made in all of my years on LJ.

Please write masterbation fics for me?

Let me explain. Every May there is a beautiful thing called the Merry Month of Masturbation aka mmom. For all the days of May, writers (and artists too I think) can create and post fanworks that feature jerking off in some way (even if it is just mentioned in passing casually and not full blown porn it totally counts!!). Creaters can post for all 31 days or even post 1 fic. Doesn't matter. It's pretty lax over there.

I have been participating in MMOM for about 5 years now and created around 55 fics for this gem of a fest and haven't missed a round... Until now. I am too busy with my hobbit big bang to create anything for MMOM and man, it is bringing me down. MMOM is something I look forward to every year and love particpating in.

So this is where you come in. Please, if you can anyway, create 1 famwork for the Merry Month of Masturbation on my behalf. I don't care what fandom, the pairings, rating, any of that. Just give me the fic that I can't write this month so I am not as bummed out.

Thanks guys. <3 <3 <3
