"A New Year Present! A new Dark Arts community and it is weekly drabbles. It will be more relaxed than [livejournal.com profile] darkarts_ldws and this comm may take over from there if people aren't wholly interested any more. Here is a nifty banner to promote the cause...


I do think I like the idea of a week-at-a-time thing. The challenge of last writer standing is fun, but it would be nice to take each week as it comes and start over fresh each time, as and if the prompt resonates and depending on rl obligations that particular week. Also no eliminations, yay! So do every single week if you want!

Well, I didn't win last week, but I wasn't eliminated; with only three entries it had me nervous. So now it's time to do it again! The remaining three in the semifinals.

Vote one, vote all, vote great, vote small...
It's Round 5 Challenge 3. Click the banner to go to the voting post and vote for the final three left standing, because there can only be one and the odds are made by your favour. The subject is Dark Creatures (Thestral) and Severus Snape with a canon character of choice. They're less miserable than the usual tripe, Snape would say, because that means the best.

Welcome to Round 5, Challenge 2 voting at [livejournal.com profile] darkarts_ldws
Click and vote, it's simple, so simple Voldemort couldn't understand it.
The character is Gellert Grindelwald (and a canon character of the author's choice)
The prompt is Acromantula. It will be fun. Maybe even instructive. ;)

Kind of as a warm-up for NaNoWriMo next month (so far I have _ no_ idea what I'll write), I've joined [livejournal.com profile] darkarts_ldws, a Harry Potter drabble (small word-count) contest. The first challenge of the current round is Lucius Malfoy and a canon character of the writer's choice in Knockturn Alley. Voting is here, and polls close tonight at midnight.

Voting is up over at [livejournal.com profile] deatheaterdrabs for the Fenrir Greyback challenge! Not quite as many entries as Lucius, but still a pretty good bunch to choose from. I'm already excited to see who we get next!

Now that NaNoWriMo is over I can actually get back to reading! Also now that I've taken my one final and the semester is therefore over. Wheee!

So the book was enjoyable, but I felt a little disappointed. I thought there would be more to it; either more details in the stories we already knew from DH, or more stories, perhaps ones that weren't already mentioned. I know, I'm horribly ungrateful. If I were Rowling and I gave this lovely little gift to my fandom, and they bitched about it not being enough, I'm not sure what I'd do. But the fact remains that I didn't find it quite up to expectations from all the hubbub about it - either in its original special edition, or after hearing reports that _preorders_ for the standard edition outsold Twilight.

"Dumbledore's" notes and commentary throughout were a nice little surprise, though they don't give much deeper insight to the wizarding world (which are the parts _I_ enjoy about the HP books. Aside from, y'know, the Malfoys).

Title: The Tales of Beedle the Bard
Author: JK Rowling
Pages: 107



28 / 36 books. 78% done!

I can't find it anywhere on the Lexicon but I could have sworn I remembered reading that the Ministry of Magic had a uniform, or at least robes of a certain color. Anybody else remember what that was?

To add to the WTF-ery of the colossal FAIL at casting Narcissa, I found this picture of Patrick Stewart while looking for ones of Helen McCrory that might possibly convince me that she will be a decent Narcissa. I have no idea why he showed up in my search results. ((ETA: Ah, 'cause she was in this show with him))



Patrick Stewart does spaghetti western? WTF is going _on_ with the world today?!
