Happy Friday the 13th!  
And it comes with lots of good news.

First, the new HP movie. Oh, God, the excitement! New canon! New characters! I can't even articulate properly why this makes me so excited. It just does. XD

Is anyone else operating under the assumption he's going to have a hot rival? Or kick ass sidekick? XD

And then! I'm going to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! NEXT WEEK. I think I'm using caps locks backwards, here. ^^

I'm leaving next Wednesday (at 3AM—horrors!) and coming back the 29th. I'm going to miss the hd_tropes's end of fest & reveals and hd_fan_fair's start. But I really can't complain, what with me being at Hogwarts and Hogsmeade, yeah?

*happy dance* like that ------> dance

Still! My internet access will be limited, so any of my prompts gets posted while I'm away, please, please, please tell the author I'm not around?

And now; a poll. I'm always wary of making polls because I think no one is going to vote and I'm going to look like a loser. >.< Oh, ~paranoia.

Poll #1933777 Newt Scamander, I want to meet you already!

Is it too early to start wish-casting Newt?

Of course not! (In fact, I kind of know who I want to play him)
Yeah, a little
Of course it is! We don't even know how old he's going to be on that movie!
What? Who is this Newt person? (omg, who are you? :O)

Sooooo. Are you already casting Newt Scamander in your head? Who did you cast?

And just for reference, here's Newt Scamander's chocolate Frog image:

My, that is one sexy moustache.

Very fetching, yeah? Pure sexappeal.

Part of me is all "aw but I wanted Founders" but more HP is for the good.

I understand why they picked it... I picture it being a comedy Indiana Jones meets Crocodile Hunter Brendan Frasier in the Mummy thing. But maybe that is me.

(Does not speak to headcanon, just what I picture them *actually* doing.

Founders!!! I really wish they'd gone there. But I'll take what I can get...

As far as HP wishes go, the Encyclopaedia is first on my list. But GOD! This is real, and it's happening! I'm beyond excited.

Hard to say, really, since JKR is writing the script. I don't picture it like that. But then, I don't have a pre idea of how it's going to go, I just know hope it's going to be magical. My little fangirl heart is filled with joy. <3

I hope it's not someone stupid like sean connery or an American actor w/ a bad British accent. Ok, I'm sort of mean today.

I'll stay offline.

You're scaring me! :( You're killing my buzz. ^^

Just kidding! <333 *smooches the gloom out of you*

No, it's going to be someone cool and hot and awesome. Like a mix between Bill and Charlie. You'll see! :D

That sounds amazing.
slashedsilverslashedsilver on September 13th, 2013 03:44 pm (UTC)
Hogwarts and Hogsmeade!! I'm sure you'll have a blast. Wish I could go too ♥
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 13th, 2013 06:01 pm (UTC)
*jumps* EXCITMENT! :D

I'm going to embarrass myself by taking pictures every meter. I swear I am. And I'm going to buy everything. In fact, might be easier stay and live there. Will see if I can manage that. I could totally do it around the forest around The Fly of the Hippogriff. lol
slashedsilverslashedsilver on September 14th, 2013 01:02 am (UTC)
Ahahaha! Tell me if you manage it; I want to live there too! How hard can it be to create a residential version of Hogwarts anyway? I could work at the Weasley Wizarding Wheezes.

Hey, I could be Madam Capitu at the Three Broomsticks! :D Shouldn't be hard. I'll try! lol

I am definitely plotting about casting in my head, too! Of course it's not too early. Wednesday would have been too early - we didn't know about it then :D
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 13th, 2013 06:04 pm (UTC)
Me too! I've been talking about this with everybody since yesterday around here. But then, mostly I've been trying to explain that no, it's not a sequel, and no, Harry and Ron and Hermione are not going to be part of this new movie. :P
Kittykitty_fic on September 13th, 2013 04:45 pm (UTC)
From what I understand from other posts that I've seen (sorry I can't remember where? maybe vaysh? or gamma? I'll have to go look!) - but it's been figured that he'll be really young... 18-21 based on the timelines that we know?

Here's hoping for a brilliant casting and a hot rival too! Hoorah!

welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 13th, 2013 06:09 pm (UTC)
I saw that! I thought it was at who_la_hoop's. o.O But yes, young Newt! And he's got to have a rival, yeah? Tall, blond and gorgeous to boot!

Now that you mention it, it'll be weird to have canon from a movie. To me, canon is the books, the rest is... optional. lol

I'm just excited for new stuff though. And that it's her writing the script. :)

What the hell?!?!
First: What the hell LJ for never telling me that you had posted on this day all those days ago.

Second: What the hell!?!?! You're coming/in the US like FOUR STATES away from me and I just NOW found out. *saddest face ever*

Re: What the hell?!?!

Now I feel awful for not writing to you and mentioning I was going to be close by. :((( But I wasn't going alone (a group of four) and we were working on a schedule, you know? Like every day planned and stuff and then off to Miami for the last few days. I'm such an asshole. I'm sorry, Tam. I should have mentioned even if I knew I wouldn't have been able to meet. We could have, I dunno, talk, or at least be aware of being closer. I'm so sorry. :(

Don't hate me, please. I feel awful, truly.

Re: What the hell?!?!

Don't feel awful. I was sort of sad just because I couldn't imagine going to Brazil or Argentina and not BEGGING you to meet me along the way and yet...

But I got over it.

I hope you had a great time! I'm planning on going someday soonish with the little guy. :))

Re: What the hell?!?!
I do feel awful. I just knew I was going to be able to meet so I didn't say anything, but looking back I know it was worse and insensitive. I'm sorry. *hugs*

Re: What the hell?!?!

See? I would have felt awful either way since I wouldn't have had the opportunity to see you either way. But you're back here on my computer again and that is lovely and one day (for serious)we'll have to set up some sort of fandom meetup somewhere amazing and exotic!


Now, tell me all about the park!

Re: What the hell?!?!
One day, without pesky bfs and people with organised schedules. ♥

The park... wow, the park is amazing. It has such a Harry Potterish atmosphere, you know? And while a lot of people are just dressed like Muggles there's a lo of people dressed magical, and not just those who live (work) there, visitors. It's like a HP convention all the time. The candy shop is... I spent a whole hour there, and at the castle, and the attractions, the fly simulator and the dragon challenge and the Fly of the Hippogriff... it's just magical. I'm dying for meeting there with you. Other people don't enjoy it at the level we could. One day. ♥
