DONE! Five hours of being curled up in the corner of the kitchen, two mugs of tea (one mug slopped over the book, oops), several Twizlers and three cookies later... I finished the book.

My favourite part? When Lupin repeated the essence of my meta-post about what Harry represents. *ruffles Lupin's cute werewolf head* He's always been my favourite character.

Now I can go off and do something productive with the rest of my day. Win!

ETA: Spoilers in the comments. Whoops.

Had a moment to decompress, here be reactions. Spoilers, obviously )

Kk – one last noodle about Harry Potter before the book comes out and (as I’m fond of saying) the possibilities for the canon ‘verse collapse into one reality.

Noodling! )

Today's submission for Best Thing Ever: The Reddings, with a song called "In My Pants". It's everything you'd think a funk/soul song called "In My Pants" would be, and more.
Full credit to Gotye, who posted this track on his blog.

ETA: early-90s-style Slytherin icon, 'cause I should probably have an HP-related icon given the circumstances.


ETA2: in HP7 I want Grindelwald, I want zombies and I want body-switching. Not polyjuice, but body-switching. That would be awesome.

Order of the Phoenix makes a damn good movie. Something to fight for! )

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANd some completely unrelated music!

1. Ladybirds, "Oh No! The Unicorns Are Knife-Fighting Again". With a title like that, how can you not want to hear it?

2. IV Thieves, "Chase Me Off/Out". Lead singer is Nic Armstrong ("If We Can Escape, My Pretty"). If the first half doesn't catch you, please stick around for the second half. Trust me.

3. Arcade Fire, "Rebellion (Lies) (Tronik Youth Re-Edit)".

4. Margot & the Nuclear So and So's, "Talking In Code". The entire album is good; this isn't the best song. This is, however, a nice little tune.

5. The Feeling, "Helicopter". Their other stuff is pretty fluffy and poppy, but this one is a bit... stranger. It's the requisite "harder" song on a pop album, with distorted guitars in the second half and less flowery imagery. Hawksley Workman could cover this and do a fantastic job at it.
