shallowness: HP films' Minerva reads the Daily Prophet (Minerva reads)
At the start of the week, it was twenty years since ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ was first published. After an initial ‘eek’ at that, even though I was fine with realising OK Computer is twenty years old also, it’s been interesting to read about how people have grown up with the series, and with it being such a phenomenon it doesn’t feel overblown to say that or to think about it’s influence in shaping social attitudes. There was the issue of the series getting a generation to read. There are people who read the series for whom it wasn’t a gateway drug to other books, for example, although I hope it got more people into reading more widely than would otherwise have happened, and it’s certainly a factor in the explosion of geek culture and the rise of the fantastic.

I got to see the film during the week. Thumbs up. Not my favourite film of the year, but lots of fun with enough to chew on.

I watched quite a bit of Children in Need last night, I usually don't, and was reminded of the reasons why last night, but I was dipping in and out of doing other stuff too. Mainly I wanted to catch the Strictly bit and the Fantastic Beasts-adjacent sketch. Read more... )

Yesterday, I posted:

Finding Harry Potter. Teen. Hannah/Neville (and various other pairings.) Summary: Hannah has to find Neville.

It was inspired by a [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic prompt that has subsequently been deleted. I don’t know what the etiquette for that is, quite. Read more... )

Isn’t it great about Tatyana Maslany winning an Emmy? I couldn’t keep up with the Orphan Black and didn’t love it enough to buy the DVD, but her performances as the clones were thoroughly impressive.

I'm not going to discuss the thing that happened in the UK today, because this is a place to express my fannishness and talk about popculture for me, beyond wondering if Rowling will be able to resist using this period as a setting for one of her Cormoran Strike mysteries, eventually. Anyway, I finished 'The Silkworm' by Robert Galbraith AKA J.K. Rowling last night. I was fairly gripped by the story, so I hope I can get across the third book soon (but I'd like to have it in hardback, as I've done with the frist two so it depends on how quickly I come across a second-hand copy, really.)

I published two (three sentence) ficlets on Tuesday, both gen, focused on two female characters I hadn’t written before. They were originally posted at [dreamwidth.org profile] 3sentencesfic at the end of March. I’d hoped to write more ficlets for it, but I didn’t manage it. (However, I’ve just seen an intriguing meme...)

Bear, Woken (HP, Minerva McGonagall universal) and Perseverance AOS, Jemma Simmons, teen? Spoilers for 3.05.

Moving on to TV I caught up on or watched a few days ago, but haven’t had time to post about, and starting aptly with Agents of SHIELD 3.12 Inside Man

Underground episode 1

I will keep watching to see where this goes, even though it’s in the same slot as Agents of SHIELD and, now, Home Fires.

Gotham 2.12 Mr Freeze

Finally for now, I saw Zootropolis (can someone explain why the title was changed from Zootopia in the UK?) which was very entertaining. Judy Hopps, ILU. It features 'bunny saves fox'. I hope there are sequels - there's plenty of potential in the world they've created and the characters that inhabit it - and I see that AO3 has hundreds of fics already.

I also prompted
Dredd, Judge Joseph Dredd/Cassandra Anderson, barriers by [personal profile] reeby10

and

Robin Hood, Maid Marian, SPACE AU, by [personal profile] syrena_of_the_lake (which is a bit more than three sentences).

I enjoyed both a lot.

If I had a time turner there'd also be a post about TV, but I don't, so expect a lot of posting at some later date.
