HP6:HBP - running commentary
My mother's coworker (the one who got us into Harry Potter
, actually) left a copy of Book 6, American edition, on my mom's desk at work on Monday. Wednesday the UK edition arrived at our house.
I was actually really enjoying my contrariness and bulking up on fanfic in assorted fandoms (incl. HP
). Plus my flist was mostly being very good about cut-tagging, but i got a definite ( cut for those still spoiler-free who don't even want vagueriesCollapse )
vibe, which disinclined me to read the book like whoa.
But i did read it. And here is my running commentary as i read. Unspoiled by anything except hearsay about that afore-cuttagged vibe.( Reading Day 1 - WednesdayCollapse )( Reading Day 2 - SaturdayCollapse )
I used Firefox's "copy link location" to put all my flist's reactions to the book in a word processing document, so of course i'll be going back and reading and responding to those next.
The Shameful Secrets Fest: Comment anonymously with some (Harry Potter) fic pairing or premise that you're ashamed to admit that you want to read. Then look through the list of everyone else's requests and pick one to write. HBP spoilers at the link.Edit:
so i checked it out and wow, i could only skim the list, my stomach was turned so frequently. Congratulations HP
fandom, you have managed to squick me like whoa, something i previously thought nigh on impossible.
