Even more siriusly

Actually, you know, he didn’t die in the one I wrote, he just got Kissed by a Dementor. So I suppose I can be grateful that didn’t happen. :)

Anyway, while I was looking in my copy of OOTP for the quote on the icon below, I ran across The Scene itself…and I suddenly realised…Lupin never says Sirius is dead. He says ‘He’s d-‘ and then gets cut off. So what was he going to say? Doomed? Drowned? Dancing? Dementored?

(I actually wonder if the Veil doesn’t have something to do with Dementors. Maybe we’ll see Dementor!Sirius at some point. Though god, that’d be awful…:(

I want book six. I want it now. Though I expect JKR will be mean and leave the final part of Sirius’s own story for book seven. Bah.

Okay, you KNOW this rant. I won’t bore you repeating what’s been said. But if the Shrieking Shack scene turns out the way everyone fears, THEN I will rant. I’m just crossing my fingers it goes something like this:

Hermione: If you want to kill Harry, you’ll have to get past us!
Ron: Yeah *struggles to his feet* You’ll have to kill us three of us!

*crosses fingers even harder*

If it doesn’t turn out like that or better, I will lock Steve Kloves in a room with all the books and he will have no choice but to READ them. Bwah.

Pokepost (mostly)

Y’know…I miss Pokemon. I really do. But they stopped playing it on the four measely channels I get, and I slowly stopped updating my Pokewebsite, and…*sigh*. But I still have my Pokemon poster opposite my bed. That’s it. Movies are left unwatched, message boards are left unvisited, stuffed Pikachus fall behind the shelf and get left there. :(

Ash and the others, however, can be Pokemon Masters in my head… :(

…jeez, I hate it when I’m in moods like this. I should do something useful. There’s a fic-quote meme going round, I should do that or something. But most of my favourite quotes from my fanfiction are from posts that haven’t gone up yet.

As an added note, I really, really like the most recent chapter of GST:Making. It’s just sort of depressing/dark and amusing at the same time. I’ve always liked it when I’m able to do that. :D Don’t do it very often…

I was going to do a long Pokefic at one point. Something tells me I won’t find the time. -_-;;

For things you can’t go back to: ^_^


OMG have seen the New Picture.

No shirt. No shirt no shirt no shirt. My god he’s GORGEOUS. I cannot emphasize this point enough.

And I want that nightdress Padme had. And the japor snippet was there! I wonder if it’ll get a mention, or will just be something for the fans to look out for…dammit, isn’t it 2005 yet?

Dammit, I want one of those folder-thingys that the kids at my school use to carry their artwork around in. They’re allowed to decorate them however they want, and I could do a Hayden collage on mine, with that picture right in the middle. But I was dumb and didn’t do art. And haven’t got a printer. Bugger.

Because I need ways to avoid doing the things I ought to be doing…

Take it, erase my answers and put your own in. At least, I think that’s how memes work. :D

Radio One are having their Ten Hour Takeover. Everyone in my family has texted requests and none of them have been played.

Random fact: The only time I sent a text message, it went to the wrong person. Causing them much confusion, I’m sure.

I really suck as a teenager…

Loads and loads of stuff

I need to post more often…




BTW-credit is nice if you take a icon, but I won’t explode if you don’t. (that doesn’t mean ‘don’t bother’ though :p)

And a snippet from the Holes fanfic I said I would write. Okay, it’s not the same fanfic I had in mind when I said I’d do one…this is a different one…but I still quite like it.

Ordinarily she would have asked “Is anything the matter, sir?” But that was before. The sweet, pleasant Miss Katherine had clearly died along with Sam.
“What are you looking at?”

He didn’t look away, he wasn’t intimidated. Perhaps not really suprising. “I’m looking at the woman who just saved my brother.”

Her jaw dropped; she quickly closed it. “You are? I mean…you are.”

“Tell me, girlie…why’d you do that?”

“They were going to hang him, and he hadn’t done anything.” She just remembered to add “And don’t call me girlie…I have a pistol. I could shoot you and not loose a wink of sleep over it.”

“Somehow I doubt that,” the man said. Katherine, of course, doubted it too. “Answer the question, anyway. Why’d you save him?”

“Because I heard people talking…he was clearly innocent.”

“Ah, but not from their side of things.”

Whose side was he on? “I care nothing for their side of things. This town can go to hell.”

“Now, now…I wouldn’t go that far. Haven’t you ever killed an innocent person before?”

“No, and I don’t plan to.”

“Then you won’t get far out here. No-one can take the law into their own hands and not have a few people caught in the crossfire.”

“I’ve only ever killed one person on my life, and that was the sheriff who was going to hang-” She stopped immediately, but the man was looking at her.

“Ah, so there was another reason.”

“I want the injustice I’ve seen displayed to end-”

“You use a lot of long words,” he interupted her. “You won’t get nowhere by just talking.”

He had sucessfully made her feel like a stupid little girl. She turned to leave, furious.

“Thank you for saving my brother,” he told her.

She stopped. “I didn’t exactly save him. He ran out of town. He could have been bitten by a rattlesnake…or a lizard…or anything.”

“He can look after himself.” The man sounded almost amused. “Anyway, my lady…tell me your name?”

In future years to come she would have no idea why she’d told him. “Kate Barlow.”


There was no mistaking what that meant. “You knew who I was? You did! And that means you know…”

“Sam.” He ignored the sudden look of grief on her face. “Onion Sam. Knew him when we were both kids. His family was the only other black family we knew of, see, and vice versa. I remember his dad…he used to pick onions too, you see. Must’ve shown Sam where to pick them.”

Katherine felt weak. “And you know what happened to him?”

“News reached me.”

“I see,”

He suddenly stood next to her and looked into her eyes. “I have a piece of advice for you. Go home. Don’t forget about Sam…after all, if it had been James hanged I wouldn’t have forgotten in a hurry…but go home all the same. There ain’t anything you can do, understand?”

“Is this just because I’ve decided to achive my objectives with as little blood spilled as possible?”

“There go go again with the long words…girlie. You ain’t made for this kind of life. Kill or be killed. The strong survive. You’re a schoolteacher, ain’t you? You know about nature. How it’s meant to work.”

She realised her fingers were closed around her pistol. “I was a schoolteacher.”

“What are you now?”

The night air was humid and it was closing in around her. She thought of her own bed, in her own home, in her own town…but how did she know it was even still there? They’d taken her lover, her job and her schoolhouse, how did she know they hadn’t taken everything else too?

“Well, I’m not what I was. I’m Kissin’ Kate Barlow…apparently.”

“Thought of that name yourself, huh?” She nodded. “Most outlaws are named by the people trying to catch them.”

“I kissed the sheriff after I killed him. I don’t think it’ll take people too long to get used to my new name.” When he didn’t say anything she added. “And I could kill you if I wanted, and kiss you too.”

“You’re playing a dangerous game.” he said, unconcerned.

“This isn’t a game…and I’m not going home. Ever.”

“Suit yourself,” he said, and put his hat on his head. “I’ll leave you to it then…Miss Katherine. But if you really do intend to right a few wrongs…I’m warning you now, you won’t be able to stay innocent while doing so.”

Then he walked off into the night. Katherine blinked back some tears.

She was not going home.

Lastly but not leastly…

The word “Jew” has been googlebombed by an anti-Semitic group which wants its definition of “Jew” to be the first that shows up on a websearch. If you would like to combat the hate, please link to the Wikipedia definition of Jew. Your link tag needs to include the word “Jew” in order for it to work. –

So I’m going to link the word “Jew” as often as possible…in this journal, if I type a word like ‘jewel’ I’ll link it to Wikipedia’s Jew entry. Unfortunately, there seems to be a lack of words with the word Jew in them. Jewellery, jeweller, jewel…ah well. More oppotunity to invent my own words. :D

And just one more thing…what is it with pop-up ads recently? I mean, they’ve always been there, but now they seem to pop up even when I’m not doing anything…I hate ads…

Holes, and the fanfiction

One of my late birthday presents was the DVD of Holes. I might have mentioned in one of the icon posts that I love that book. And I consider the movie to be the best book-to-screen adaption ever done… (yes, that even includes LOTR and HP)…although since the author did the screenplay maybe that’s not suprising. :)

Now I REALLY want one of those DVD-screencap thingys. There’s a load of beautiful shots in the movie that would make lovely LJ icons…but I have no idea how to make screencaps. Bah.

The book is one of my favourite books, the movie is one of my favourite movies…but there is one thing that bugs me about it. I feel guilty saying this, but…the fanfiction. There is practically nothing in the fanfiction section except ‘girl goes to Camp Green Lake’ stories. What about those of us who want to know what became of the Warden? Or even Elya and Myra or the lesser-written about characters? Heck, what about those of us who think Sam is more attractive than any of the D-Tent boys, except possibly Stanley? ;)

Ah well…I had an idea for a Holes fanfic a while back. Maybe I’ll write it, then…
