Oops, haven’t updated for a little while. I went to Devon, and it was lovely, and I read a book that made me think many thoughts, so I might post about that at some point. And then I came back and some stuff I don’t think I’ll talk about happened. But. Then. Last Monday I had a very excellent day in London with laliandra, hanelissar, pigrescuer and playwithfyr, which included us going to the premiere screening of the next episode of Doctor Who, Let’s Kill Hitler, so that was BRILLIANT.

 

Such a good day! No spoilers for LKH. )

 I see how much writing I can do per Starbucks drink. Why does caffeine make me want to write? It is so much more reliable than waiting on regular inspiration. Just now I wrote by hand the scene from freaking Chapter One that I haven't been able to write for like, two and a half years.

Starbucks in magical, y'all, and it cures all ails.

Do you guys write by hand at all, or always straight onto the computer? I told a friend the other day that I often feel more comfortable coming up with ideas, the more pure creativity aspect, and world building and plot arc planning etc etc, by hand on to paper, into various notebooks, and she seemed genuinely surprised that I don't just always go straight for the word doc. Obviously, there is plenty that does go straight from head to computer, and fic especially, I basically always feel uncomfortable writing fic by hand now, although I used to do that rather a lot lol. But yeah. Notebooks ftw.

It's weird not being alone anymore. Meals regularly happen, and without me going shopping. Sometimes the bathroom isn't free. I have to worry about playing music too loud. It's nice though. Conversation is good.

I went to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part One. In fact, I've seen it twice now, once on Friday and once on Saturday. I am itching to go see it again, it is so so good.

I was particularly amazed by Emma Watson, who usually annoys me and suddenly seemed to be doing a really really good job acting Hermione brilliantly! She easily carried several scenes, and was poised and just, did a great job.  I don't know what happened to bring on this change, but - Hurrah! 

Probably going to do a post about the things I really really loved, but for now, just know that I loved it.

Keen to find a chance to see it in IMAX with laliandra and hanelissar (do other marm fish wanna come too?) sometime, hopefully this side of Christmas.

I feel like I'm getting skinnier, but I don't seem to be losing weight. I'm not sure how that works. I mean, even if I'm losing muscle mass I'd have to be getting fatter for my weight to remain the same. And I'm certainly not replacing fat with muscle at the moment, haven't been to the gym in ages. I'm not trying to lose weight btw, though not to gain it either. Clothes are looser, and sometimes I find myself touching my arms curiously, thinking I'm skinnier in places. But then I feel like my torso is exactly the same.

Perhaps this is some psychological desire/expectation to put on weight for winter, and by not doing so my mind is confused or trying to convince me to?

****

Nano is not going well, at all, but I just can't feel upset or anxious about it. I've written little, but having written at all just makes me feel all happy and proud. I'm not complaining.

Last night's Garrow's Law was beautiful and heartbreaking. If you don't know, Garrow's Law is a courtroom drama, but set in Georgian London so it is also a period drama and full of social injustice themes. Last night, Garrow was defending a man accused of sodomy, and non consensual sodomy at that, that was facing the death penalty. His accuser was his partner, and that partner's wife, and were the partner to suggest the sex was consensual he too would be facing the death penalty. The whole thing was just fraught.

The accused gay man was played by Andrew Scott, who was Jim Moriarty in Sherlock, and he gave such a beautiful, subtle and heartbreaking performance as a man that can't tell the truth to his own lawyer and despite the situation is still so in love with the man that accuses him. The end was so heartbreaking, there was a real tear in my eye. 

If you missed it and can get the iPlayer do watch it, such a good episode. Gorgeous.

****

Also on TV - tonight, two friends of mine will be on University Challenge. So if you can, watch it!

Your result for The Harry Potter Husband Test...

Mrs. Harry Potter

Your perfect HP man is Harry Potter.

You like a guy who's not afraid to fight evil when evil picks a fight. There's a lot to say for bravery in the face of overwhelming odds, even if it does come with a prejudice against people who don't fit into his conception of "good guy" and a penchant for hurling objects across rooms when he gets angry. But in fairness, for an orphan who's spent the better part of his life being hunted by the most evil wizard in existence, he's turned out pretty well. Just be prepared to name your kids after everyone he's ever lost, because he's got a bit of an obsession about the past.

I intend this to be my last post before Saturday. I'm sure that whatever happens, "We can expect great things.... Terrible yes, but great."


Great man, Dumbledore.

See you on the other side!

She's only gone and given us the title for the last book. I'm so excited, and yet I'm also totally terrified. She'll probably release on 7/7/7 like we have all expected her to. God. Its coming to an end, its all coming to an end...

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows"

Oh god.

Scrap that- I'm so terrified I keep forgetting to feel excited. 

It wouldn't be nearly so bad if I wasn't totally convinced that, one way or another, Harry is going to die. 

Oh god.
