Harry Potter

Today is Harry Potter's birthday! :) Happy birthday to the boy who lived. <3 I watched the first movie last night and finished the sixth book this morning. I understand why they're so popular now. They're wonderful, charming, touching, and simply magical. They are extremely well written: the characters are solid and tangible, the narration is flawless, and I wish I could read them for the rest of my life.

The movie is enchanting as well. The actors are adorable and brilliantly talented, and the special effects, composition, and music(by John Williams!) sparkle too.


  1. Harry Potter. You sicken me.

    Just kidding. Good for you Amaranthine. You got past chapter 1!!!! I couldn't. :P Happy Birthday to the kid with the cool scar.

  2. nooo try again! XD. Have I ever been wrong before? (just kidding)

  3. XDDD Maybe someday......And if I say you have been wrong before, will you be mad? xD Just kidding. ;)

  4. I'm so glad that you're a HP nerd now like me!!!! :) Happy belated birthday Harry!!!! <3

  5. Yay! another Harry Potter fan! Happy late b-day Harry!

  6. I love the Harry Potter books/movies! The worldbuilding is amazing. Glad you're enjoying them!

  7. Glad you love Harry Potter! Happy late birthday Harry Potter!

  8. Yay! welcome to the Club, Amaranthine. :D They really are amazing aren't they? Just wait book seven is probably one of the best and it develops a very cool Christian angle. Teh movies are good, but not nearly as good as the books in my opinion. You just can't fit as much into two hours as you can into 800 pages. They actors really are brilliant though, and I absolutely LOVE John Williams. How can you not love the guy who wrote all the Star Wars scores?

  9. By the way have you heard about Pottermore?

  10. <3 hehe
    I love John Willaims' music!
    And my birthday is the same as Hermione's!!!

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO

love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.

Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.

I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…
