valkyriekat_47: (Salazar Slytherin)
Constructive Cynicism Holiday

The weather is 35 Celcius - effing hot here at the hot springs with loud brats and their louder, brattier offspring. Hufflepuff has to deal with my near-constant litany of snark. I enjoy the mountains and ice caps and my inner mineralogist is gleeful at the variety available. Constructive: I worked my way into getting an upgrade from a sleeve to a pint of ale free after a few comments.

Pottermore is down for significant changes. I can't send potions ingredients to Sionna-Blackbird. I wait for Sony's axe to fall. Perhaps it will work in Slytherin's best interests. I hope so and I won't leave as long as those who remain loyal to Salazar remain. Me included

Going to Harrison, BC, which you likely heard me rant about. My Hufflepuff's birthday is the day after we arrive. It will be a break because the only internet access I get will be my tablet. I won't use it much, data charges can be silly.
I hate to leave Pottermore and my flist but sometimes you have to relax.
Relax? (*snort) It will be very hot and too many screaming kids...but there are 7 different temperatures of pools and I may actually not have my head in the clouds for an entire 15 minute stretch!
Will likely work on the book in progress and check my mail for my [community profile] darkwitches assignment. If I can and there is reason I will make a post from my tablet. Likely not. So see you, whoever reads this.
valkyriekat_47: (Book Alive)

This things are the three major things I need for writing that are expensive.
Everything else is easy, paper, pen, mental agility and memory.
I really wanted this ruled Charles Darwin book to write more book ideas in. I'll maybe use 1/10 of this material. I could use paper and a cheap durable pen, but I like to "secret" my thoughts in a little book. And it's emerald green to go with the brilliantly green and silver pen with the serpent on top, which I've had for a while. And the laptop. Panasonic Toughbook with Linux Mint 14. I can't really write with a tablet, I'm not that coordinated and/or simple-minded. They have them with keyboards but I can't deal with the platform. Too damn expensive for one thing.

These three tools are like a small Slytherin cheering section. The pen is top heavy and it's easier to type. Apparently this book will have 15 chapters. There are some places and people I search for names for, and a lot that needs to be thought out and intuitively as well. Does this make sense? If no, maybe I'm going in my own bizarre direction. Good.

I saw this a few days ago and everyone maybe has seen it, using Potter Puppet Pals with movie clips, but it's rather amusing to see it again. Sorry for the spammage today.

Yes, questions about cons and which and what is what.

1. Are there any Washington area (Seattle I hope) HP cons? I'm in BC, Canada.
2. Where are the upcoming cons?
3. How long does one spend on average in costume during the con?
4. How expensive is the average cost of con, with hotel and trasnsportation, generally?
5. What about sharing hotel rooms? Gen!
6. On a scale of 1 to 10, how enjoyable have you found cons?
7. How sociable are you expected to be?
8. Does it cost extra to enter special suites and presentations?
9. Is this really somewhere an socially bizarre snarker should be?
10. What are the top 5 cons you have attended (for the last 20 years)

I am actually managing a lot of 142s today and I was jittery with coffee. I had duelling nerves.
What, did they sneeze? Gryffindor LBer WildSparks17554 got their arse kicked.
By HexWalnut107, ich bin's, c'est moi, and they are 12th on the Gryff board. I place nowhere. I have nice points, but I do breathe other than Pottermore air. They turned around and threw 144 at me, afterwards.

Your result for The Remarkably Thorough Harry Potter Character Test...

Severus Snape

"The Dark Arts are many, varied, ever-changing and eternal. Fighting them is like fighting a many-headed monster, which, each time a neck is severed, sprouts a head even fiercer and cleverer than before. You are fighting that which is unfixed, mutating, indestructible."

You are Severus Snape, the Potions Master and eventual Headmaster of Hogwarts. Professor Snape is cold, calm, and calculating. He prefers to roam the world alone and unloved, for the only woman he ever loved married another. His bitterness stems from Lily’s rejection, and the fact that he couldn’t save her from Voldemort adds to his endless grief. Not to mention she married his worst enemy - talk about a slap in the face! As a spy, he is the ultimate dark protagonist, much like Batman or Beatrix Kiddo. It is impossible to deduce what he is feeling or thinking because he rarely ever reacts to situations. You are similar to Snape in the sense that you are both angry individuals. You tend to hide from people rather than embrace them in friendship, and you do not tolerate being talked down to or belittled. What people don’t know, however, is that you are merely wearing a mask. The hard shell that surrounds you is there only to cover the anguish you feel on a day-to-day basis. Secretly, you are a lover, but the pain of life has condemned you to a cynical perspective. I suggest that you take a long hard look at what's really bothering you, and do whatever you can to heal yourself. Whether that means taking a vacation, going skydiving, playing video games, calling up some friends to go see a movie, it's up to you. Do what makes you happy, and don't let the world get you down!

In short, you are more:

Cautious than impulsive

Mature than immature

Arrogant than modest

Normal than weird

Introverted than extroverted

Your polar opposites are Fred and George Weasley.

The much hated friends feed which will completely render the styling for the friends pages I do obsolete and mean they are just like places like Facebook which do not let you design your own corner of the world.

Go to LJ Releases new update to complain in a respectable and civil manner please.

I also recommend just not using it. Don't switch if you don't have to. I have mine as the older version and refuse to switch. I'm going to just deal with the little bar telling me I'm using the old version until I'm forced. I feel like if we continuing using the old friends feed and ignore the changes maybe they'll take a hint (probably not but worth a try).

All 12 Chapters of Silent Chess are now posted at AO3 in 4 sets of 3 sections each. Completed.

Severus Snape is one snarky, conflicted and confused teenager. One person in his family doesn't mind at all. Livius Prince, OC, Severus' maternal grandfather.

This is one of the first fan works I ever produced. It's stilted and not much action but a lot of brain picking. Severus is nowhere near as truly sarcastic as he should be. Still worth the read!

Words: 19523 **Note: I am salazar_kat there.

DISCLAIMER: Fan use only. I make no money from this amateur work, characters belong to JK Rowling.
