Catching Fire

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 23, 2013, 2:28 PM


I saw Catching Fire last night and I'm so in the mood to talk about it

It was so good
Josh Hutcherson is short but he is a pretty good actor
But I like Gale better and we got 3 kisses??? Gale/Katniss was way played up

Also Finnick looked kinda terrible in the promo photos but he worked it out on screen, also Mags was perfect (and she was prob syked when she read the script and saw she got to kiss Finnick on the mouth, u go Mags)

They stuck to the book so well, but I hope that doesn't mean gonna do the same thing for Mockingjay, because they need to change everything. Finnick and Prim can't die. Also I just want it to not be depressing and have a lame ending for Gale. I think they should take that flirting scene between Johanna and Gale and run with it. Make them wind up together. Jena Malone will probably kill that scene and everyone will be shipping them anyway.

I dont think I even have any criticisms? Maybe Effie Trinket... her outfits look like student projects to me and theyre too over the top... obviously they're supposed to be over the top, but its still supposed to be an ensemble that you could put together on an everyday basis by yourself. Elizabeth Banks overacts also... Stanley Tucci does it much better... hes over dramatic but his acting is convincing.



I'm finally going to HP World

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 17, 2013, 8:25 AM


Hi guys

My dream of going to Disney and HP world is finally happening. I'm probably going to spend 3 or 4 days in Disney, and 1 day in HP world. I got a lot of travel rewards from working in Canada all summer, so my flight and hotel (which isn't in the park, it's a mile away) is free.

DO YOU GUYS HAVE ANY TIPS FOR ME OR RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PLACES TO EAT

I'M SO EXCITED



I tricked tumblr

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 14, 2013, 4:59 PM


Hello everyone, I realize it's been ages since my last journal entry, so I just wanted to update so people know I'm still active.

Maybe some of you saw this, but I made this fake imdb page for a Marauders BBC show and posted it on tumblr. It was just supposed to be a joke/fantasy, but apparently a lot of people bought it

(You'll notice there are lots of things that give it away, however)



But maybe one day, if we badger enough producers, it will be a reality



HUNGER GAMES

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 24, 2012, 9:14 PM


(Inappropriate journal header but whatever)

I just saw it. I loved it. It was so much better adapted than the Harry Potter movies were! Granted this story was much easier to water down than Harry Potter, but I'm not really here to make comparisons.

So here are things I liked:
• They did a great job of juxtaposing District 12 with the futuristic technology and styling of the Capitol. Jennifer and Josh were great together, and Liam did a good job of giving longing gazes. I thought they were gonna give him a bigger role? Idk what happened, but I was glad they stayed so true to the book.
• I loved the scene they added with Rue stealing Cato's knife in training! God she was so precious and even though I had accepted her death I kept praying that she would stay alive somehow.
• I also loved the additional scenes with Snow and Seneca Crane, where they gave more insight into the motivation to have a winner, which placed more emphasis on why Katniss' double suicide plan was successful. I loved all the gamemaker scenes (although whoa, those fireballs were a bit larger than apples.)
• I'm glad they didn't overdo the kissing, we got one big kiss and that was enough tbh. And I got my Gale reaction shot, yay.
• I loved Thresh and Foxface… Thresh was pretty much 100% how I saw him in the books… I wanted to know how he died though! Did the Mutts get him or was it Cato?
• Also Stanley Tucci was fantastic. (Even though I always pictured Ceasar as a blue haired Anil Kapoor, he was great.)

Things I didn't like:
• I'm not sure how I feel about them making the Careers a bit meaner… like Glimmer mocking that girl's death, ew. I guess it's so we don't feel as sorry when they die, but I would've preferred them making more sympathetic… well they did that with Cato, so I guess it's all good.
• We weren't given anything on how the Mockingjays are a symbol of rebellion, I don't think… they'll do more on it later probably.
• The ending could've been better. I think everyone can agree on that. We don't really knows where Katniss and Peeta stand at the end.

Pretty minor complaints… overall it was fantastic and I can't wait for Catching Fire.



New Skin

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 18, 2011, 3:21 PM


Hey everyone, I was long overdue for a new journal skin, so I made a Marauders-themed one, but with a dA color scheme. Looks okay in Chrome, but I haven't tested it in other browsers yet, so feel free to let me know if stuff it off. Gonna try to upload it as a deviation also.

About Pottermore, a lot more people added me as a friend than I expected, so I'm having trouble keeping track. I'm working on an excel sheet to sort people's Pottermore names, deviantart names, and tumblr names, so I'll post that in the next journal. I may have to delete a few people if I can't find out who they are, because I just have so many people added now. I haven't been too active on it lately, I mean, there's only so many times you can brew 'Herbicide', so I'll just be waiting for October, when hopefully some new features will be released. As for the next book, I don't think that's coming for awhile.

Also, a lot of you have been asking for my tumblr, and it's julvett.tumblr.com. I'm gonna make a icon for it at the bottom, especially since I use it way more than anything else down there.

Also wanted to address something about one of my recent 'mature' drawings- a lot of you complained about not being about to see it, so I changed the restriction to a 'warning', which I think means you'll be able to see it. I'm not really sure what the policy is concerning 'strict' and 'warning', but I'll change it back to strict if there are any issues. You might not like it though, it seemed to get a pretty weird reaction from some people, but whateva. Don't have plans for more mature drawings at the moment so don't worry :)



Pottermore

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 1, 2011, 3:40 PM

Hey guys, give me your Pottermore names! I put in everyone who told me their names on my Lily drawing in as their deviantart names. I'm CrimsonCauldron49 if you want to add me, but please tell me who you are so I can put in your dA name also! (or tumblr name, depending if you follow me over there)

I really love Pottermore so far esp brewing the Potions, even though they're a bit glitchy. I can't wait for new content, especially from Order of the Phoenix and the Deathly Hallows. Although bad news- I heard a rumor that Chamber of Secrets won't be out until 2012, and the rest of the books will be released 6 months apart after that. I think it's smart to stagger the releases, but 6 months? By the time we get to the Prince's Tale bonus content, I might not even like Harry Potter anymore. Lol who am I kidding, of course I will.

Btw, if anyone was wondering, I ran a Marauders book cover contest and all the winners have been posted. If you want to see all the covers, head over to the blog James-x-Lily...

(and if you didn't get in to pottermore yet, you should be in really soon! good luck!)



Hey guys

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 10, 2011, 8:16 AM

I need some tips on how to get back into deviantart. Tumblr has been my main go to site for awhile now, and most of the time I see art from the people I watch over there first. I want to be on deviantart more... I guess it would help if I did more art. I'm working on stuff though, I swear. (I did just post a wip of something... but naturally it was on tumblr)

Oh, and just wanted to let you guys know that my club, :iconjames-x-lily: is running a Marauder book cover contest. The deadline is soon, but there's probably going to be an extension. I'd figure I'd advertise the contest here since this particular contest targets a broader range of fans.

Anyway who's excited for Pottermore? I've been talking about it a ton on tumblr but curious to know who I can expect to see there from my dA followers. I signed up twice, because people said there might be issues with yahoo mail, but the username I'm planning to use is CrimsonCauldron. It was the Lily-ish one I could find.



Time to nitpick about DH Part 2

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 15, 2011, 1:18 AM

Hey guys, just got back from Deathly Hallows :tears: Gonna post some thoughts before I go to bed! This is going to have some spoilers, so you might want to come back later if you haven't seen it yet, although I don't think there's much to spoil at this point.

Okay so probably the scene I was most anxious for aside from the Prince's Tale was Gringotts, and I thought they did an AWESOME job on it. It was so true to the book and so exciting to watch, it was a great way to start the movie. Although I wish they kept the line where Ron says like 'I hate to break it to you Hermione but I think they might have noticed we broke into Gringotts.'

Then they don't waste any time going into Hogsmeade, they're really rushing through this thing, why does Harry tell Aberforth that he doesn't care about Dumbledore's backstory? Lol that is obviously not true but whateva. They get into Hogwarts and I really want to jump in one of those hammocks, and I'm pleasantly surprised with how many lines Cho is getting (more than Ginny tho?) Disappointed with them messing with Helena's backstory too but it was acceptable I guess. The Room of Requirement scene was pretty solid so it made up for it, I was really digging Draco and Harry's dynamic there. (Lol when I was little I really wanted them to become friends one day.) Good thing that diadem got 'extra destroyed' by getting stabbed by the fang and burned in Fiend-fyre, can't hurt to destroy it twice I guess :hmm:

Anyway on to Snape stuff, his death was pretty gruesome by HP standards, as it should've been. I loved that they added the line 'You have your mother's eyes', but it made it kind of awk when they show young Lily and she does not have Harry's eyes. (I mean okay, I can see why they're not green, but BROWN. really?) Gah I was freaking out during the memories, but ultimately disappointed with the kid stuff. I mean, it never even shows Lily and Snape fighting. No teenage stuff at all :( The adult Snape stuff was great though, despite the creepy CGI stuff they did to Alan Rickman's face (lol at least they tried) and the best shot of the WHOLE FREAKING MOVIE was Snape sobbing holding Lily's dead body. The Lily/James kiss is also up there for my favorite shots, kinda glad they had some unused 10 year old footage, because in the forest scene they are mad old. Of course, they fit right in with Sirius and Remus... but interestingly this scene was the first one to make me realize how much I like David Thewlis' Remus. But dude, I can't believe they managed to make his and Tonks' death scene even lamer than in the books. And Fred's was like non-existent. The only death I think I liked was Bellatrix's, that got the loudest cheer I think, even more than the Ronmione kiss. Oh and they cut out everything with Teddy. Deleted scenes you better come through on this. Maybe the Lily/James wedding scene will be on there, I didn't really expect that to make the final cut.

Ohh and Neville/Luna? Well okay.

OH AND HARRY BREAKING THE ELDER WAND BEFORE REPAIRING HIS OWN WHAT



Devious Journal Entry

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 25, 2011, 10:33 PM

Wow I really need to reply to messages, I'm so sorry and will get on that!

Anyway, just want to let you guys know I'm still alive, but of course if you follow my tumblr you're aware of that. It's just great for keeping up to date with all the Potter stuff, especially with the Pottermore site launching! I'm kinda disappointed that I will have to wait until October to see it (I just know I won't be one of the million people that gets in early) but I saw some James/Lily stuff that made me super excited.
I also got my DH Part 2 tickets for the midnight showing... anyone else going?

Lastly, I'm going to open commissions again because I need extra cash, a few people have contacted me saying they're interested. However I'm going away from the 29th to July 8th, so I'm not sure if I should wait until after that... I will have my laptop so it shouldn't be a big deal.
Also, I was thinking about maybe just doing fanart commissions for a reduced price... so no OCs, just characters from any fandom I've drawn before, probably would be under $20. Would anyone even be interested in that though, or do you want OCs?



And now for some Hunger Games Spoilers

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 6, 2011, 5:59 PM

It turns out Deathly Hallows isn't the only movie being spoiled this week. A lot of new info has come up about the Hunger Games movie, including that Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth have been cast as Gale and Peeta. If any of you have been following my tumblr you know how I feel about this. The only thing I'm concerned about them making Liam grow his hair out, and not using a god awful wig.
I actually did some manips of Liam with long hair:
julvett.tumblr.com/post/438609…
julvett.tumblr.com/post/438610…

And there are plenty of manips going around with Josh as a blonde, so you can check those out.

As for the spoilers, apparently they really effed up the bread scene. I don't know how, but honestly, how could you screw up such a simple, beautiful scene? Like I'm really confused.
Also Madge isn't in it, so I think this makes it even more important to finish a drawing I have involving her from ages ago.

Also Gale is going to have a bigger role? But apparently its because he does something that makes him really unlikeable. I don't know what it is, but it can't be worse than his fate in Mockingjay... but yeah, it is supposed to be pretty bad. He probably kills someone. Or hits on Mrs. Everdeen. IDK

This movie better not suck.



Deathly Hallows

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 2, 2011, 8:21 PM

Okay, making a new journal to stop people from getting confused. Or rolling their eyes. Whichever ;)
I am so excited for Monday to be over so my midterms are done and I can do more art. I'm supposed to be studying now, but some Deathly Hallows spoilers have come out, and it's quite distracting. Especially since I now know what happens in the greatest chapter of all time.

-----DEATHLY HALLOWS SPOILERS, CLICK OUT IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW-----

Basically, I'm sort of shocked because I found out they are showing Lily and James wedding during the Prince's Tale. That is just an overwhelming piece of news. I'm torn, because I'm overcome with happiness that they're showing them as a couple, but they actors are so wrong that it def puts a damper on it. Also, DOES ANYONE ELSE REALIZE IF THEY'RE SHOWING THE WEDDING THIS MEANS SNAPE WAS THERE, WATCHING THE WEDDING? CAN SOMEONE DO FANART OF THIS PLEASE?

So yeah, pretty crazy. The whole scene is about 7-10 minutes long, and 3/4 of it is Lily/Snape. James knocks some books of of their hands (that evil jerk ugh how could Lily marry him). I don't think they're doing the train scene, which is a TRAVESTY ("Where are you going, seeing as you're neither?") but it sounds like it might not be horrible. We'll see.

Also it sounds like the Lupin's totally get ripped off, once again. Tonks doesn't get any lines, and Teddy is cut out completely.

Also, they Oliver Wood isn't in it, I was just discussing that with someone on here. And, Ginny barely gets any lines, so YAYAYAY.

Keep in mind that this was a test screening, so they may make minor edits. The original test screening for OOTP had the full Snape's Worst Memory in it, so if they cut down the Prince's Tale, I'll be livid. Although the movie is only 2 hours, so cutting it down any more seems unlikely.



Devious Journal Entry

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 1, 2011, 10:13 AM

Hey guys! Haven't updated this in awhile, but I've had a ton of tests this week- after Monday, I'm going to be a lot more active on DA.

Anyway, I'm working on some new art that just needs to be colored- I have Hunger Games, Tangled stuff, commissions, and of course, more HP art. And shockingly, it's not all of Lily and James *gasp*. I mean, I still like them, but lately all I've been wanted to draw is Lily/Snape stuff. I think it's because of all the gorgeous fanart of them I've been seeing on tumblr... unrequited or not, I just love them so much. I thinking they're becoming my #1 pairing, haha. I've even drawn them kissing... but it was Snape's dream, so it's still canon. I know a lot of my followers like Lily and James, so I hope you don't mind if I stop drawing them for awhile. Hopefully my last couple pieces will hold you guys over until I get inspired to draw them again!

I think minos3346s, toering's , and pojypojy's art is mostly to blame... their Lily/Snape is just.... guh. :drool:

--Okay yeah this was an April Fool's joke.... a painfully obvious one, at least to most of you! But actually 1) I really do love Lily/Snape, just unrequited, 2) It could never be greater than my love of Lily/James and 3) I really love all the drawings I posted, but I wouldn't draw anything like it... I have copied the drawing of Lily and Snape on the bed though, I just drew James instead of Snape, haha



Plugging

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 24, 2011, 2:31 PM

Hello guys! I believe I've said this before, but I have a tumblr now: julvett.tumblr.com/ I've finally got a theme and everything, I think I'm actually going to use it now. If you want to follow me I'll be your best friend :aww:
I feel like there a lot of people here I'd like to get to know better- if anyone ever wants to chat about fandomy stuff or art stuff you can find me on yahoo messenger, my username is julvett (crazy, right) or of course you can ask me on tumblr. It's totally not necessary to follow me on twitter, I doubt I'll ever post anything interesting there. I'll occasionally post WIP drawings on livejournal, that'll probably be it. I mean, I only have like 40 friends there, and I have like 3500 dA watchers, so obviously things that I actually want people to read will go here. I really just use LJ to follow others and enter fests.

Speaking of fests, the 2011 Lily/James Games could use a couple artists, so if you like them and have an LJ account, you should check it out. Signups end tomorrow, I think.


Also, the Marauders Fest has begun the posting stage! I would encourage everyone to go over and leave some reviews on the stories. Remember, in order to keep your fandom going, you need to give the writers/artists feedback! COMMENTS ARE IMPORTANT GUYS (this is not a personal complaint, I think I get way more comments than I deserve, I'm speaking about people who write/draw amazing things and get like 1 comment.)
Oh, and this is also the fest that I did a piece for, and I was confused about the rules so I don't think I can post it here yet. Here's a link:





what. just what.

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 6, 2011, 8:49 PM

Oh dA. What are you doing to me right now. First off, you added that little 'See more from' feature, which means I'm going to have to completely reorganize/redo/burn half my gallery. Then, I find a drawing of mine that someone ripped off, and you mark my violation report invalid. INVALID. And the original artist ignored me, so I guess there's nothing I can do about that. I'm not too frazzled by that though- people don't rip off my stuff too often. I guess it's a good thing I'm not a better artist. I think I might feel different if it were my original characters. But all I do is fanart, so they're not even mine to begin with.

But that's not even what's causing me any drama lately. It's more then fandom-y part of dA. I've been getting into a lot of fandom discussions lately, all which have remained somewhat civil. But that's great- it's like, dA is how I connect to the fandom, rather than through livejournal or tumblr or something. So that being the case, just know that if you leave a comment on one of my drawings saying something absolutely ridiculous about the characters, you better be prepared for an argument. I mean, if someone wrote something awful about my drawing, I would likely ignore it or just humor it. But if you say something stupid, like Sirius is a monster or Lily is a cold hearted, bitchy, gold-digging whore, well, bring it on. Those comments just give me this strange mixture amusement and outrage, and you can bet I'm going to jump in to defend them, whether it's left on my deviation or not.

And I won't be mean about, I always try to say things nicely. But it's tough sometimes, when it seems like the other person is so blinded by their love of Severus Snape that they bash every single other character in the series to put him on a higher pedestal. I mean seriously, appreciate the character for who he is. Don't blame his flaws on Rowling misrepresenting him, or 'hating' him... she can't misrepresent him, she created him. I'm not saying you have to love the Marauders also, but don't defend your love of Snape on the basis of morality, because you will lose every time. Especially where Lily is concerned. That girl's only flaw was defending Snape for as long as she did.
Also, claiming Lily is a 'cruel' person makes Snape's love for her seem pretty shallow. And while I'm a fan of Snape and Lily's relationship, we know it's a bit creepy. We see him look at Lily with 'greed', we see him being possessive over her. He's not this sweet, sappy, drooling idiot. Sheesh.

Yeah so that's my rant. I could've made this way, way longer, but I'll spare you. I also spared you of the creepy header, you're welcome :)



Stuff I'm into, lets see what we have in common

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 21, 2011, 11:59 PM

Yeah I haven't gotten around to changing the journal yet, just avert your eyes if you happen to see anything inappropriate.

Stuff I'm into:
:bulletred: Harry Potter, obviously. My 4 yr James/Lily kick is still going strong, as well as for all the other characters of that era. But please stop asking me to continue the FB timeline, it just wouldn't be funny, guys. It would just kind of be like, a bad movie sequel at this point.


:bulletred: Hunger Games, I'm doing some more art of it right now, I swear. Also really excited for the movie, I can't wait to see who they cast. I'm totally a fan of Kaya Scodelario and William Moseley for Katniss and Peeta, but they're both British and I'm scared they'll have Robert Pattinson-esque American accents. I also always thought Troian Bellisario would be a great choice if she was younger, she's actually who I (loosely) base my Katniss drawings off of. And yes, I know her from Pretty Little Liars, yeah I watch that show. My little sister got me watching it. I kind of hate it, but I get makeup inspiration from it and I really just want to know who freakin' 'A' is.

:bulletred: Skins- Started watching this awhile ago when I met my friend randomneses, yes I'm probably gonna mention her a lot. Although I've only seen the 1st gen because I'm still too attached to the characters to move on yet. Tony is my favorite obviously, since I'm attracted to a-holes like James Potter. Also I like Sid and his bromance with Tony. Also Maxxie is ridic hot but he's blonde and doesn't have as interesting eyebrows as Tony. Can this paragraph get any shallower? Let's continue.
Almost made me a slasher. Almost.

:bulletred: Inbetweeners- Another show brought to my attention by randomneses, I started watching it so I could learn to talk like a British person and write better Marauder fanfics. I've actually tried to relate them to the Marauders since they're 4 teenage British boys, but I can't. There's... no one like them. Though it's kinda like a British Superbad.
HP: Ooooh Friend by Heliotrope-Housecat

:bulletred: I'm not really into this, but I saw Eclipse for the first time the other day. It's the only book I don't remember anything about at all, except for that Rosalie scene. I know everyone in the world hates Twilight, but I still think she's a good character. Super hot jealous baby crazy vampire, it is a bit intriguing. The only problem was that there was already an attempted gang rape earlier in the series, and two gang rapes in a series goes over quota. I don't really have anything else to say about the movie, except I think I fell asleep during the tent scene, so I don't remember the end.





Wtf and some potter-y stuff too

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 12, 2011, 9:52 PM

Hey watchers! Just wanted to thank you guys for all the amazing and nice comments you left on my last deviation. Seems the fandom is still going strong!
Oh and don't worry, I'm going to be changing this journal header soon. Someone posted a comment on tumblr that she thought it looked like Lily was getting James off, so since I'm never going to unsee that, this has got to go. Also my sister told me it looked stupid and cheesy. And I was like duh, I know, what's wrong with stupid and cheesy? Still, the first thing is reason enough to change it. Eventually.

---- Guys you can totally skip this stuff if you want, it's just more HP stuff---
Anyway, I now have the series-that-shouldn't-have-been completed, I have a Young, Teenage, and Older Lily/Snape comic. I wish I could've actually uploaded it on Jan 9th, but I actually spent Snape's bday (lol like he's a real person or something) roleplaying Snape's birthday. I know, that doesn't sound like me, and anyone who's ever had the misfortune of coming across any of my fanfiction know that I shouldn't do anything involving HP and writing at all. But one of my livejournal friends got me into it (the same one who inspired the last comic) and she's super cool because she likes both James and Snape, so she's fun to talk to. It's a common misconception that I hate Snape... believe it or not, there are some of us out there that like James AND Snape. It's crazy.
But the RPG is amazingly cool, it's called baitandbleed, and it's set in the Marauder-era and focuses a lot on the war and politics of the time, and really hard-hitting stuff like this:

Lol jk, there really is a lot of interesting political stuff, but there are plenty of posts dedicated to making fun of Snape. As you may have guessed I play Avery, since he's unimportant and I won't ruin the game if I don't play him well. I'm getting really attached to the whole Death Eater thing now though, I think Avery and Mulciber torturing Snape about his 'affection' for Lily is just hilarious. Anyway, if you're super bored, which you probably are if you're still reading, here's a link to the first page if you want to read it. I only just joined so you won't have to suffer through much of my stuff. community.livejournal.com/bait…

Anything else? I'm trying to do some more art, but I'm just the slowest artist ever. But it will be fanart, I have absolutely no interest in doing original art. And I don't see a problem with that. :)



BEST FRIENDS FOREVER

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 24, 2010, 1:33 PM

Look at them guys. Look how cute they are. Aren't they precious? I am so excited for Deathly Hallows part 2 I can't even take it.



And Merry Christmas everyone! I'm working on some comics that hopefully I'll finish after Christmas. I also want to do a subscription giveaway, if I have any points left over from my contest at :iconjames-x-lily:

PS: I wonder what the chances are of them using a latex nose for Snape. His hair is perfect though.
PPS: Does anyone know if fanfiction.net has a storage thing like deviantart does? Where you can just hide your stories from the public but keep the reviews?



'Hey losers, he's not here!'

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 19, 2010, 11:25 PM

Deathly Hallows movie spoilers, headed your way :)

Okay I'm super tired and my brain hasn't yet recovered from the numerous times it exploded from that epic movie but I'm going to try to jot down some thoughts for you to agree/disagree with.

Best HP movie to date, y/y? To me, isn't the first one that felt like a cohesive film rather than just going chapter by chapter.

Things that rocked:
:bulletblue: The seven Potters, how awesome was Hagrid driving that motorbike?
:bulletblue: I loved the part at the Ministry, I thought they chose great actors to portray them because they really resembled them and made it easy to follow. Ron kissing Reg's wife, that was too funny
:bulletblue: Neville and Cormac's little cameos, I was so glad they worked them in there. "My father will hear about this" haha NO DUH
:bulletblue: THE TALE OF THREE BROTHERS. That was perfection. I love that story so much, it's so beautiful, and it always has meant so much to me... I couldn't believe that not only did they not eff it up, they made it even more beautiful with that animation. I always was so amazed with the way JKR wrote that story... I loved how it followed the traditional structure of a fairy tale but it had so much more meaning, and it didn't feel forced-- I'm not sure if I'm properly explaining what I mean but it's just great. My only concern in the movie was that Harry did not put together that he was related to one of the brothers and the cloak was a hallow... I mean, they probably will get there eventually, but I wanted to see it NOW.
:bulletblue: Snape's entrance to Malfoy Manor gave me chills, he was so awesome, if only for a brief time. I am so freaking pumped for The Prince's Tale, if they eff it up as bad as they did to Snape's Worst Memory I will certainly die. :dead:
:bulletblue: Hermione looked really pretty and I actually did not find Emma Watson annoying at all in this movie. It took 7 movies, but the girl finally learned to act. :) She was so good in the scene with Bellatrix!

Things that were bad (or things about the Marauders that they cut out):
:bulletred: WTF I wanted a Remus freakout wtf wtf. Does Harry and them even know that Remus and Tonks got married? Or that they have a baby? Is Harry going to be super confused when his son tells him about this strange blue haired kid who is making out with his cousin? IDEK Part 2 you better come through on this one.
:bulletred: Also Sirius' room. I wanted to see some bikini clad Muggle girls. Marauder photos. LILY'S LETTER.
:bulletred: Would've liked more on Regulus' story, but at least they didn't ignore it.
:bulletred: WHERE WAS LILY AND JAMES' STATUE THAT WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING COME ON.

And that's about it, right? OH and I saw more skin on Dan Rad and Bonnie Wright than I EVER wanted to see.

ONE MORE THING I PROMISE lol at Ron and Harry during the silver doe scene. "Harry was that your Patronus?" "No." "Okay well that wasn't totally weird or anything, let's just continue like that doe didn't even happen." WHUT.

TL;DR it was amazing and I loved it. Is it July yet?

Hey what's up guys. Remember him?



This is a conversation that took place between him and my aunt (his grandma):
Aunt: So what’s the spell that Draco Malfoy uses?
Him: (whispering) I can’t say it
Aunt: Why?
Him: (whispering) I don’t want to go to Azkaban

I love him :heart:

Anyway, I know everyone's journals right now are about how busy they are, but I have been seriously working on school work all week and writing this journal entry is keeping me from writing an essay on why India has an advantage over the US in the IT Services market that's due at 11 tonight. Yeah, on a Friday. FML. And my little sister has to write an essay about racism in Disney. For some reason, she didn't take me up on my offer to do each other's essays.

SO I'm sorry to everyone in my James-x-Lily club since I have not been able to tally the contest results yet, nor am I able to finish the comic I have been working on.

Oh and I have a tumblr now. julvett.tumblr.com/ I haven't done much customization on it yet, but I feel kind of excited because one of my gifs from the show Community was reblogged (or twittered?) by the creator of the show and I feel special!
(Btw, I watched this week's Community at 3 am this morning as I was unable to sleep, otherwise, yes, everything I have done this week has been schoolwork :P)



Cuteness

Hey guys, what's up? Sorry I haven't had more time to upload stuff, school has been hell for me lately. It sucks because I'm actually inspired to draw stuff now, but I have too much school work. I do have a Hunger Games picture that's almost finished, and I'm also in the process of fixing up one of my old comics for Halloween.

Btw my James/Lily club is having a Halloween contest, so if you like them, you might want to check it out. There are point prizes and a lenient deadline ;) james-x-lily.deviantart.com

Also, isn't this cute? It's my cousin dressed up as Harry Potter for Halloween. His mom (also my cousin) had said she had wanted to be Lily and her husband to be James also, I'm not sure if they went through with it. Anyway, he's almost 4 now, and he knows all the spells. His favorite one is 'Stupefy' and he runs around yelling it at random people and expects them to fall over backward when he does, haha.
