I am at long last able to do things like comment and add people. Which is blissful. I am adding Diacon people and shamelessly stalking their Diacon posts.

Which so far has been a blissful experience. Everyone seems to have had a blast :D

This is still not my, er, ‘official’ Diacon post. It is very long though. Cut for a happy teal deer. Which sounds like a drugs euphemism )

So yes, Victory Ball? Best ever. And [livejournal.com profile] creatore_magico captured it on tape:

*squishes Ku* I’m so grateful you made it for us. (And with such super-speed, too!) It’s a gorgeous vid and captures the atmosphere so well, and I’m just so happy to have it for posterity.

Also, my mum thinks it’s lovely.

LJ has been totally failing for me all week :( It could’ve been worse, though; although it was v frustrating trying to post at crack_broom, and to comment on people’s posts, I’ve felt very quiet this week.

I will (one day!) be posting about Diacon, but for now I just want to say: Harry, I love you dearly. For all you’re not one of my favourite characters in the ‘verse, you’re at the centre of it. I really enjoyed toasting to you at Diacon’s Victory Ball, and celebrating your victory over evil. I hope you’ve enjoyed your thirty-first birthday.

And that you didn’t find that panel I did on making you have sex with everyone else too violating ;)

Just getting on the internet for the first time over here, super-quickly, for a brief note to say I had a BRILLIANT time at the Victory Ball tonight. It was amazing and I had so much fun and YAY!! Thank you to everyone, especially the rest of the committee and the great volunteers ♥

So, kids, what are you wearing to the Diacon Victory Ball? :DDD Even if you're far too cool for actually dressing up for it and going in jeans, do tell me! Is anyone cosplaying? Personally I've not been out in MONTHS, due to work and then losing my only form of ID, and I am going to dress up and dance with anyone who'll have me.

I just spent over an hour looking through my favourite fashion sites looking for a dress for the Diacon Victory Ball; the search confirmed my decision to wear a dress I already own. I haven't worn it out yet, though – and being the very definition of a fatshionista (which is one of those terms that wibbles between stupid and just. so. fitting) I do not consider any of the time looking at dresses wasted :D

The dress I'm wearing is very pretty, but )

Happy birthday, Draco! You are my bestest boy of all and I’m so glad you lived to see this birthday :)

The subject line seems terribly apropos for Draco's birthday :D

Now! Speaking of, who wants to see TINY TOM FELTON and TINY DAN RAD and TINY RUPERT GRINT and TINY EMMA WATSON? And who does not care for them but wants to see ALL THE STARS IN THE BRITISH SKY being variously fantastic?

The London IMAX is having a MASSIVE HP marathon, to celebrate the franchise before the very last film. On the Friday night the first four films are shown, and on the Saturday they’ll show the last three.

Cut to diacon_chat for details

Okay, so as you likely know, Diacon Alley, a fan-run HP con, is happening this summer in Canterbury, England. It’s going to be fantastic. There are a couple of LJ comms with details ([livejournal.com profile] diacon_alley and [livejournal.com profile] diacon_chat) and I can answer questions if you’ve got ’em, but this isn’t meant as a pimp post.

I’ve got a programming proposal for Diacon – I think a panel looking at how characterisation of Harry changes according to who he’s paired with, and particular fanon portrayals that spring up around specific ships, would be really interesting. Unfortunately when I read Harry it’s almost exclusively Harry/Draco.

So, dear flist... I’m looking for people who’d like to help me out with that. If you ship Harry/Snape, Harry/Ginny, or Harry/Hermione that would be especially awesome; I’d like to have shippers from all the big Harry ships, especially if they ship more than one – ie fans of both Snarry and H/D – and know about the differences. But in a perfect world we’ll also have people who read Harry with others – Luna, Ron, Charlie etc. And really, if you’re thoughtful and going to Diacon and willing to be on a panel with PEOPLE WATCHING YOU, I would like you! Particularly since, as the tone of this probably suggests, I don’t have many fixed ideas. If someone wanted to do this with me and change the emphasis that would be totally fine.

But this is where I’m at now, and moving forward will be difficult without talking it over with other fans.

*pokes [livejournal.com profile] melusinahp* Come on, we’ll definitely talk about dark!Harry...

I am feeling Christmassy! I bought the last gift for my housemate today – we’re having Christmas on Thursday (before two of us go home on the Friday) and I am SO EXCITED for the three of them to see the gifts. Socks with teacups and gorgeous black stilettos and dresses and earrings and a hairband! OPEN THEM I WANT YOU TO LOOK REALLY HAPPY WHILE I FEEL SMUG.

You know why else I’m feeling Christmassy? No, not because I’ve been reading [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays fic, tragically. (I am so sorry, darlings. Some day soon there will be time to catch up with you all!) But because I’ve started getting adorable Christmas cards!

Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] dirty_darella, and to [livejournal.com profile] rons_pigwidgeon for the delicious bonus Ron/Draco smut! My ‘present’ LJ gifts from [livejournal.com profile] babydracky and [livejournal.com profile] thepretender501 were much appreciated too. Oh, and [livejournal.com profile] nenne, I was really pleased to get the fruit-basket LJ-gift when I started posting again and I’m not sure I ever thanked you – so thanks! :)

Other sources of seasonal joy? Our house is deliciously tacky and shiny, I have eaten way more Lindt than is good for me, and [livejournal.com profile] creatore_magico has done Diacon Alley an adorable Christmas banner.


I am quietly getting ever more excited about [livejournal.com profile] diacon_alley. There are such incredibly cool plans in place for our celebration of Harry’s victory. Post-war chic = ftw!

I have various panel ideas, too, but that’s another post.

You guys? THE AWESOME IS HERE! (And here! And here! And here!)

This is gonna be AMAZING! It’s gonna be in Canterbury: beautiful and historic and awesome, and v right for the telling of Tales. We’re having this post-war celebatory theme with a fantastic Victory Ball!

And there’ll be a group showing of Deathly Hallows 2 for free! And panels, workshops, round-tables, meet-ups, lots of gorgeous art... THE AWESOME IS JUST OVERWHELMING. We’re giving our boy a proper send-off, big and beautiful and full of cool people. :DDD You know you wanna come!

See you there!
