Charms: Shetland Shrug )

Option 1: “I must not tell lies”- craft a cowl or scarf that you could wind around your face to stop yourself from making snide comments or talking out of turn.

Option 2: “Wands away and quills out”- show us that you aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo, craft a project with a technique that you’ve read about, but never used before. Show us that practical knowledge trumps theory just like Harry and his friends did in Dumbledore’s Army! Never fear, you are allowed to consult various resources such as books, videos, and friends- what would Dumbledore’s Army have been without Harry’s expertise? Please note what technique you used and tell us about your experience.

Option 3: “The Hogwarts High Inquisitor knows best”- Maybe you begin setting off fireworks inside the castle or create a charmed swamp in a hallway for Filch to boat students across… You could, wait, we’re not going to do all the work here, so you tell us! Be creative and show us how you would anger Professor Umbridge, or, if you really fear that evil pen, a project that would prevent you from angering her.

Herbology: Poppy
Option 1: Craft something flowery. Whether it is a flower patterned piece or the flower itself, it’s spring - let your yarn bloom!
Option 2: Craft an object using beads (like poppy seeds) to embellish.
Option 3: Craft an object inspired by or in honor of the character Poppy Pomfrey.

On the subject of the parade this weekend. Chiquita says, "I will bring a book and my knitting for something to do. Seriously, I have survived Con Coms. It can't be worse."

A few of you may be aware that I love the series xxxHolic. Despite the mildy unfortunately name in english (which at the very least I know made [ profile] plaid_slytherin recoil slightly when I once talked to her about it. Well the manga series rather than the animated show, but same idea.) So good though!

I finished watching episodes 1-24 this week (just about the only non-Arisia thing I did other than play on the Wii). Love! Each is bitter sweet. There are no neat endings, and few of them are completely happy. But they say something about life and there are messages in them that resonate with me. Messages about the value of choice and the fallacies intrinsic to what we want instead of what we need.

*happy sigh* I am sort of sad I finished them, though I have no doubt I will watch them again. Any suggestions of something else I might like?

We are just over a week until the 6th Harry Potter movie comes out, which means time to start planning going to see it. Is anyone out there looking for plans too?

You know since it is July... and it would seem reasonable to expect it to be too hot for wool and thus most of my stuff I have made. I am still hoping for some actual summer-like weather, but maybe the chill wet is just an excuse to actually wear my house sweater, my quidditch sweater or my house robes...

So if I were to make this )

Should I do it as command track, engineer or science officer? I am leaning towards engineer, but am accepting input.

Your result for The Sorting Hat Test...


You scored 55% Order/Chaos, and 35% Moral/Rational

Rationality with an orderly/chaotic split. What you strongly know is that you try to be rational, objective, and like to consider things as shades of gray. On order, you see the value of rules and organization but equally can become impatient and advocate a rather loose system. Your strengths arise from your ability to consider both radicals and straightlaced authority objectively; however, it can turn on you when others feel betrayed by the fact that there are few you support unconditionally and consistently.

The 4-grid I used to determine this is as follows:

Chaotic Orderly
Moral Gryffindor Hufflepuff
Rational Slytherin Ravenclaw

Before I forget, the fic that I mentioned last night to [ profile] crazybone and [ profile] cintyber last night was When Bad Smut Happens to Good Characters. It is NC-17, Harry/Ginny and short. (And yes it is intended as humor rather than actual smut.)
