Wow. This is confusing.
I have three of my fandoms clashing viciously inside my head:
-Pirates of the Caribbean
, but also its sister dimension, the world of The Legend of the Red Wyrm
and The Siren's Yearning.
Which, by the way, is a playground of imagination created by me and expanded by Ella in which the alter-egos of (or more like characters based on) several Finnish metal musicians plus our circle of friends happily roam the seven seas.
Should really start writing The Siren's Yearning
some day as well and just stop worrying about historical accuracy and whatnot. Bloody perfectionism.
, as I've recently re-watched some of the old episodes of Buffy
and it made me realize once again why I loved it so much. Well, the early seasons at least, as it started to go pretty weird after Buffy
's fourth season and I'm still bitter about how Angel
-Naturally enough, I suppose, Harry Potter.
I've stayed out of the fandom for pretty much a whole year now. I went to see The Order of the Phoenix
knowing virtually nothing about it beforehand (well, a lot less than about the previous one, anyway) and today I managed to buy The Deathly Hallows
completely unspoiled (though as soon as I got home, of course I had to click a link to a picture in hp_art_daily
which pretty much spoiled one of the people who will die in the book. Oh well, I suspected he might.)
It's probably not the best time of the month to start reading that book as I'm in quite emotional state. Last night I got teary-eyed when I read Buffy's final speech in the season five final episode, The Gift.
And now I started crying after only reading the William Penn quote in the introduction of the book. The first death left me quite unshaken, though. Probably because I expected it to be someone else. Or maybe because nothing can beat the shock-factor of The Half-Blood Prince's ending (I cried for hours even though I knew what was going to happen).It's been quite painful to read so far, though. These last books are definetely not for the kiddies anymore. Death, torture, psychological manipulation, betrayal, corruption, loss, oppressing atmosphere, nazi allegories... And increasing amount of innuendo. :p
Hmm, I wonder what kind of dreams will I have after watching a couple of Buffy fanvideos, listening to At Wit's End on repeat and reading several chapters of TDH more. :p
