Gonna go to bed. See you all in 6 days, guys! I'm going to miss you and I'm gonna miss the cats but first let me share this little trailer with Tom Felton as a main character.



I didn't care about "The Flash". I only watched random Tom scenes, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] felixfvlicis' kindness too. But this looks good. It looks really interesting and I would be curious to see this exploration inside the mind of Belisario's character.

I can't wait to see it, honestly.

And, you know, I'm more of a DanRad fan myself. I just love him, his tiny yet amazing and compact body and his acting choices. But apparently, apparently, a whole TFelt meltdown is sort of happening. Also because of ONE PERSON I WON'T NAME *points at the tagged user* WHO DRAGGED me into this Felton hellsssdgsjjsd

AN ACTUAL FOLDER IN MY LAPTOP



I just don't know how to justify this. It happened.

I'm slightly obsessed with his ankles. He has such slim ankles and they are LITERALLY Draco's ankles forreal.

All the Draco aesthetics to fuel my writing. Mhh.






kikimay: (Two sides of the same coin)
THIS IS A THING




Draco's hairstyle from the Cursed Child play AKA: the only thing I will consider CANON AF until the end of my days.

Long haired!Draco is thing. Draco who likes to braid his hair in the most elegant and sophisticated ways. Draco who combs his hair carefully before going to bed with Harry. Draco who uses expensive hair products, even if after the war he became more and more considerate about spending money, because on post-trail restrictions but also because of what he saw during the war and how it changed him. Still, Draco who will keep his hair sane and strong with every the possible mean.

Also, occasional bob haircuts in the Summer, when he likes to rock it a bit. (I do believe Lucius will always have the better, stronger hair, but this boy WILL TRY forever) Braids, masculine yet cool accessiories. Softest hair ever.

This has been a post.

Guyyyys, how are you? I hope everything is fine and you're enjoying these pre-Christmas days as much as one can.

Still using my mom's old laptop! I went there to see if the guy was done with mine but apparently not. It was a malware problem and it's taking it a bit longer than expected. Ouch. I hope that it will be ready on Monday, at this point. How did I even got this malware thingy?? (You downloaded stuff) Whatever.

[livejournal.com profile] hd_erised and [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost are making me happy. So many wonderful stories and art, yaaayy! I'm struggling to read everything and I'm little behind - but that could be good, I could save stuff for later - I want to partecipate and give many kudos and feedback, that's why I want to keep up. But I was seriously thinking to save something for later, when I won't have this much fanfic to read. #fangirlproblems

Also, also, also ... I discovered that there's the naughty Christmas celebration at "Daily_deviant", but I don't have an account for that and I should look to see if there's interesting stuff. I realised that I have a MAJOR GODDAMN KINK for sub!Draco and/or objectified!Draco. OMG I FEEL SO BAD AND YET IT'S SO GOOD!

I honestly love Draco/Harry because it's so switchy. I really like bottom!Harry and top!Draco. Love it <3 And I'm very interested in their dynamic beside sex. Sex scenes aren't necessary for me to appreciate the stories about this pairing and I love when an author can feel me THE FEELS.

But when it comes to dirty!bad!wrong! porn? Oh man, sub!Draco FORLYFE. Especially when he has a little bit sadistic dom (Although I still don't get the appeal of rape fantasies and non-con, big no for me) who makes him squirm so deliciously. Awwww. And I guess that mostly, when it comes to porn, is about the psychological space of the characters (Also the graphic images, yes, but you get what I mean) So reading about this type of Draco is ... satisfactory. Hope I will find stories with the trope.

And also, thinking about the fact that I should have a happy, shippy Drarry icon at least!
kikimay: (Buffy's smile)
Super-ultra-busy trying to stick information in my brain. But I just wanted to tell:

On [livejournal.com profile] hd_familyfest, the authors' names were revelead and, yay, I also posted a story and it's "The Best Offer". Go see this year masterpost and enjoy the greatness of the Draco/Harry parenting fics, that will add 30 years to your lifespan!

Linky link to the masterpost: http://hd-familyfest.livejournal.com/21656.html

It was an AMAZING fest, I had fun reading and writing and I plan to answer very soon to all your comments. THANK YOU, guys!

A whole post about "The Cursed Child" and its debatable greatness needs to be written on this journal, but I would like to send this plea to all of you Artists who love this fandom: GUYS, PLS, DO DRACO WITH LONG KHALEESI BRAIDS.

You know you want it! And Draco with long hair offers so much opportunities! Please!

Also, talking about hair, I'm back to my classic pixie. LOLOLOLOL. I would like to know if any of you have suggestions or styling tips for short straight hair (Because my hair now is straight and that's a little challengy in terms of styling, I need to get used to it) I've learned that put the gel when wet and trying for the wavy is not good. But I'm gonna look cute and not mommysh at all, you writer of that magazine who told people that pixie hair is difficult to pull off! YOU LIE!

See you later!



 
kikimay: (Glare)



Starting from now to the next week it will be an asskicking period of studying and stuff (Hopefully, if I can stay that productive!) And I'm feeling kinda bummed out by the idea at the moment, so why not make a pointless post on LJ? I do like to write here.

These days on Tumblr there's this very popular idea of sorting characters with different methods (zodiac, Hogwarts House and so on) One of the most popular sorting system is the Myers-Briggs test which, if I'm not mistaken, was already discussed in here.

I'm not a psychologyst, but since people make pretty gifs I think I can express my opinion. (✿╹◡╹)



And, in doing so, I'm gonna consider the core characters of my current obsession (HP) and my long lasting love (BtVS). Brace yourself.


BTVS


Buffy Summers = The reason why I'm posting this, tbh. I saw a bunch of gifs categorizing Buffy as ISTP (introverted, sensing, THINKING, perceiving) Now, I can potentially agree on everything except that "thinking" part. WTFFFFFF! Which show where you watching, guys?? Buffy is absolutely and primarly ALL ABOUT FEELINGS.

She listens to her guts, she thinks that emotions are totally valid assets, she makes the most important choices following her heart and she forgives even when hurt.

Of course, she *thinks*. She's a very intelligent lady and she also has this very strong moral compass in which she needs to prevent badness from happening and it's all her responsability. But if you pick a dychotomy "feeling or thinking" and you ask me what's Buffy Summer's prevalent function, it must be feeling. Ultimately she can sacrifice herself for love.

Buffy could be either extroverted or introverted, I don't know. She clearly enjoys social situations and she has a past of being a "queen bee". But she develops a strong stoicism and the ability to bottle up her emotions. Plus, in the end she goes out with the same two people for decades! I think she could be an introverted who plays the extroverted role very well.

She's sensing - apparently means pratical. She's a very pratical person and, in battle, she often picks casual stuff to kill vampires. She's not so much for abstract thought, more like: let's see what happens and what can I do to handle the situation.

FEELING AF. Because she ultimately relates on her insticts and emotions.

Perception or judgement, IDK. Mostly because she has a strong moral compass (And that's the judgemental part, I guess) But she's also very practical, so IDK. Anyway I would say that Buffy is ISFP or ISFJ and see what happens and what Wiki tells me about these kind of people.

Incidentally, I believe that Harry James Potter is also a ISFP.

Again, all the same conclusions )













kikimay: (You Wonderful Boy)


Hi guys!

KINDA DYING RN.

Also kinda annoyed at friend who keeps calling me all the time and sending me messages about her being SO STRESSED because her whole program consists in like 50 pages she already studied and only have to re-read again. (No, we are not in the same university and yes, she's going out with her gf now *sighs*)



I wish I was in the same kind of stress tbh ;O;

Anyway, I'm done for today and I hope I can do more tomorrow because I'm still in deep shit.

I also don't like to talk about study in my free time and generally *talk* - I wish people could take a hint - and I'm using all my spare time to fantasize about the epic gay romance between Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter, because if I survive this I'm gonna produce stuff.

AND I FOUND A FANART! WITH MYERS-BRIGGS TYPES!!! (Is this how they are called?) And LITERALLY *O* !!!!


Like, Harry is perfect IMO. He's an ISFP which, according to this peculiar sorting, means a pratical person who relies on his feelings and sensations and who is also an introvert. This fits Harry very much.

But Draco INTP?? Like, somebody who is thoughtful?? An introvert????? WHERE DO YOU SEE THAT, GUYS?

How can you say that Draco Malfoy is an introvert, when his tiny gay self craves attention like nothing else in the world? Draco enjoys being at the centre of the stage and that's only because he's a Malfoy that he kinda acts like *he doesn't care*.

I'm also puzzled at Hermione Granger because the fandom shifts from extrovert to introvert.

I think she's very similar to Willow. Willow is the quiet bookworm who starts with a very low self-esteem (Idk if that's also Hermione's case, it's not completely clear) but she's also very friendly and gregarious and later, when she goes to college, she really enjoys the new life and the possibilities of friendship and seems at ease in social groups, like the fake wiccas group. Does this mean that she's an introvert or an extrovert?

Hermione also spends a lot of time in solitude studying, but she's very dominating and pro-active. Someone who's not scared to step into leadership positions. Does this require at certain degree of extrovertion? IDEK.

But.

I'm kinda surprised that these very young kids on Tumblr, who want to refuse all kind of categorizations also feel this very strong need to put people and characters in such tiny boxes. Like, they can categorize everything, even emotions and sexual orientation.

Don't get me wrong, I'm so curious when it comes to these stuff and I love the idea of knowing more about people and how they behave and why. But that's surprising still, given the *****progressive***** nature of Tumblr.

Anyway I'm the same as Remus Lupin, which is kinda accurate. :D

And I'm gonna make myself the biggest sandwitch now.



kikimay: (Expecto Patronum)



Hi guys!

Thanks for your support yesterday! I hope you're all doing fine. Personally I'm trying to "do stuff" which is good, even if I get tired easily. Anyway I'm still living an Harry Potter situation that turned my little cousin, mini-Hermione, into a fan. Today she came at my home with her dog to watch the third movie. It was hilarious and I didn't remember that but PoA is really a beautiful movie, there are so many wonderful scenes, and Ron and Harry's hair is majestic. (As recognized by mini-Hermione)

I should continue my book review but I also think that mini-Hermione's opinions are gold.

I had to explain her the whole deal with Sirius because she didn't understand it as explained, so she was like: "OMG, that's Sirius!" or "Where is Sirius?" every five seconds. She thought that sleeping!Remus in the train was Sirius and that Harry should have checked, in case he was hiding there (Smart girl) Then she asked if Sirius could have changed his appereance and I said yes and she checked for every animal, especially Hermione's cat, until she went for the big dog. Obviously.

I'd like to inform everyone that Draco isn't the cutest anymore, because of his awful haircut. Instead Harry and Ron are really pretty with those messy hair. Romione has a legit reason to exist now.

Hermione punched Draco!!1!11BEST *high-five* That mouse is a guy but he still looks like a mouse! So who is the bad guy? I didn't imagine Sirius like that, he should have a full beard. OH GOD EVEN THE DEMENTORS! TOO MANY EMOTIONS, MY HEAD IS SPINNING. (---> literally her reactions)

Also everyone is stupid with different degrees of stupidity:

Ron being afraid = he's stupid! XD / Draco sending Harry the note = He's stupid! / Fred and George with the map = They are so stupid, but also smart!

And now let's talk about the seventh book )




kikimay: (Buffy's smile)
... And I'm back from the holidays!

I spent a week at the beach, it was really nice and I felt relaxed most of the time so I did enjoy it. I do love the sea. This time, strangely, it rained for three afternoons straight. Also the water was really, really warm even in the mornings. I think that climate change is involved and I hope that we'll find a way to save the Mediterranean sea (And also the people who constantly die there. That would be nice). It's such a beautiful place and for the first time it seemed really obvious that it is in serious danger.

I really wish I could take one more bath and enjoy the sun. I'm tanned! And I have photos to prove that. (And the fact that for three whole afternoons the sky was grey!)

I'm also very pleased to discover that I was nominated to [livejournal.com profile] wicked_awards and SunnyD awards. THANKS SO MUCH, GUYS! <3 <3 <3 I'm so happy that you liked the stories (The nominated fics are "Beautiful Butterflies", two times, and "After The Fall". They are also favorites of mine and I enormously enjoy to write about Dru and I ship Spuffel so much!)

Here's the pretty buttons.




Thank you, really.


I also continued my HP reading marathon and I finished "HP and the Half-Blood Prince" and I've started "The Deathly Hallows". I'm seriously stopping every three words now because of feelings. And I already felt the tears coming a couple of times, especially when Harry found Lily's letter to Sirius.

It's gonna be great, guys. I think I'm going to handle the angst just like a mature, rational, adult person.




I just have so many feelings about these books and about Harry my bby boy. I actually took notes to talk about the most important things in "The Half-Blood Prince".



Yes, I'm a nerd )
kikimay: (Expecto Patronum)
I can't believe that there are only two books left and the story will be over.

Maybe I'm gonna slow down and wait a bit more to start the sixth volume. (I wanted to be super-fast because these days I'm enjoying summer and I have a lot of free time on my hands so I can't read for fun) I'm also super-curious and emotionally invested so I can't stop myself. I promise nothing, but I wish I could enjoy this story as much as I can.


This story is so compelling! )
kikimay: (Oh children)
Guys, I'm not done yet, but I have to share my feelings. I think that at the end of this HP reading marathon I will probably write something send me Drarry prompts because REALLY.

Everything happens so much.


- First of all: HERMIONE JEAN MOTHERFUCKING GRANGER. Okay, I know, I know! She was clever and capable since day one, but now she feels much more confident about her abilities and she comes up with the idea of Harry teaching Defense against the Dark Arts because she understands how important that is. I love the fact that she doesn't pick Harry to flatter her bestfriend's ego, but because he actually knows shit and he can really make the difference. Hermione's very protective towards Harry and Ron, but at the same time she doesn't care about anyone when it comes to *serious busness*.

- She's kinda ruthless? I mean, the punishment for the traitor in case Umbridge discovers the secret meetings, the way she scares Rita Seeker ... she even takes Voldy's idea to communicate with the other members of the secret club. Can you imagine how much the world would be fucked in case of dark!Granger? There would be no Chosen One to save the day. Mark me down as scared and slightly aroused.

- Umbridge sucks. She reminds me of a Literature teacher I despised. I can't wait to see her going down.

- I'm staring to hate Percy. Breaking Molly's heart sending back the matching sweater was one thing, but fuck, does he have to be so squishy with Fudge? This guy is so authority-whipped, he should grow a pair.

- Draco is soooo annoying and now he's even part of the Inquisitorial Squad. Can he be more slappable? At the same time I always find him very amusing because a) he's an incredible loser, b) he's such an artistic sassy little shit. He invented the song to mock Ron. He's always involved in these artistic projects like the "Potter sucks" things. He actually spends time making shiny things to express his feelings or thinking about funny lines. That's very creative! There's a bit of Ravenclaw in Draco.

- James Potter was an asshole. Seeing Snape's memory was painful. A kid always wants to know about his parents and he always hopes that they are awesome people. It hurts when you realize that your father is a jerk, it really hurts. I understand Harry's confusion and disappointment. Thinking about his amazing father always helped him and he faced so much pain, trauma and loss. It's not easy for him. And it feels somehow a brave decision from Rowling to show an unlikable James Potter after one probably has imagined him as a good guy all the time.

- The bullying scene felt so real and James and Sirius were two fucking assholes to use magic against Snape and James was so disgustingly arrogant. And yes, he was only 15 and that was just an episode and I know that he probably changed and became a better man. But ewwww. The exact kind of guy I hated when I was a kid.

- At the same time we have a confirmation that Snape is a racist little shit, but I honestly would really be that harsh with him about the insult of Lily? It felt like something horrible he said also because he was embarassed to be saved by a girl? I still don't know if he really believes in the pureblood bullshit.

- Lily is so much better than both Snape and Potter. Why did she married one of the assholes?

- Which is also Harry's question. XD It makes me laugh because this "enemies turning into lovers" trope is also pure drarry.

- Gary Oldman's Sirius was a much better godfather. Harry needs a reliable parental figure not someone who wants him to spice his life with more risk. Wtf, Sirius?
kikimay: (Expecto Patronum)
And the "Kiki reads HP" saga continues. I finished the fourth book and now I have to read the fifth. Guys, I'm drowing in the feels already, I don't know if that's normal.



At first I lol'd but then ... )
kikimay: (Buffy's smile)
Who just finished "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban"? Who did that?

Me! :D It's really late here and I just finished the third book of the series. Of course I also read the second book, "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" yesterday. This saga is really cool and is such a pleasure to read! You just want to go on and on, without getting bored. Really awesome, Rowling.

So here some really lame first impressions because it's too late to function and I also don't have interesting ideas on my own.


Spoilers? )
kikimay: (Buffy's smile)



Guys, guys, GUYS! I finally read my first Harry Potter book, yay! *throws confetti at self*

I know, I know! I'm definitely late to the party and I'm an adult now and the saga starts with a book that's really for kids, but I FUCKING LOVED IT and it was so amusing and the worldbuilding is so interesting! I can't wait to read the second one! I'm really curious to see the differences between the books and the movies and I loved the first one so I'm motivated to continue. Yeah, I'm giggly because funny books make me happy.

I'd like to share few superficial impressions about the first book, because I don't know if I can say something original and I'm sure you're much more familiar with the saga and have more insights on the characters and the plot, but anyway.

I loved ALL THE CHARACTERS! I love everyone in this bar! X3 From Harry to Hermione, Ron, Minerva ... even Severus, who seems terrible from Harry's POV and Draco who is a little shit. They are reliable characters, rounded and well-written and they are interesting. Severus Snape, for example, gives off this vibe of ambiguity about him and you want to know more about him and about his past with Harry's dad and why he's so hostile to Harry. He's interesting after you discover that he's not the Big Bad of the first book.

Harry's aunt and uncle are disgusting and gross, but they are such cartoonish villains in a way. They reminded me of Matilda's parents and Harry's kinda like Matilda herself: the strangest little kit who finds friends and true family at school. You go, Harry! He's such a sassy little guy and I like the fact that he's basically clueless about everything but he doesn't take that bad. He's cool beans, really. His only true pain is related to the loss of his parents, poor baby. (How can his own aunt be so cruel to her sister's son? Ugh)

Ron is SO SMART! I remember that in the movies he was kinda like the dumb sidekick and we laughed because of his funny faces. But really, he doesn't seem that scared of everything and he even punches Draco in the face (You go, Ronald!) Neville is much more the terrified bullied little guy, while Ron seems to be more confident. He just feels inferior because of his older brothers and I'm so happy that, in the end, he sees his value recognized by Dumbledore. That was amazing.

Can you explain me why Dumbledore is a Gryff? So far he seems very clever, manipulative and calculating. I'm impressed by his way to test Harry and prepare his future army. It was very smart. Why he's not a Slytherin or a Ravenclaw, since those seem the houses for the cunning/wise guys? Anyway I liked him and I can see why Harry is so attracted to him (Although a part of me is sad because Harry doesn't know what it feels to be loved and appreciated without being used and he was the guy who left him in an abusive home but he's so eager for an older parental figure. Poor baby!)

McGonagall is an absolute QUEEN and I'm so happy that she's played by Maggie Smith in the movies, because I love Maggie Smith. Hagrid is such a total sweetheart! He's so loving and he would have been a much more fit guardian to Harry and I'm sure he would have showered him with all his love and care and Harry would have known what it feels to be loved. Aaaww. Hermione is adorable.

Draco is such a little shit! OMG XD He's even pathetic at times, because he's such a spoiled, immature child, but the first meeting with Harry was cute and they hate each others so much: THE SOLID FOUNDATION OF EVERY SUCCESSFUL OTP. I'm into it! *w*

Really, I couldn't ship Draco with Neville because it would seem so unfair to poor Neville who really suffers a lot for Draco's cruelty, but Harry is so into the game. He's like: yeah, bitch, let me show you why I'm better than U! And of course Draco is livid because of that. Amusing and it builds the tension for when they are grown up.

Loved the shopping for the wand, Snape's first lesson and the Quidditch first match! The scene with Harry in front of the mirror made me sad and also when Dumbledore went to see wounded Harry. Baby!

On a side note, do you know that in the original Italian translation they translated Ravenclaw with "Pecoranera" (Blacksheep)? What the hell?! XD I'm happy they changed it later.




(Btw I'm also watching S2 of True Detective and eventually I'll make a post about it)

(Also my beta is out of town, so I wrote another ficlet but it won't be published until 16 of July. I didn't forget the challenge! Hope you'll wait)
