11. Character you're crushing on

I don't really have a crush so much as OVERWHELMING LOVE for Hermione Granger.

I cannot find words beyond BADASS:







Technically not HP but it's EMMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. Deal with it.

Just, everything about this girl is AMAZEBALLS. She gets shit done! I LOVE THAT. Even when she does stupid stuff it makes her MORE real because she's NOT perfect. Normally I'm not one to jump on the insufferable-know-it-all-omg-A-minus-is-a-travesty train cos I know people like that and um, I never really got why they were that way, like, RELAX UR GONNA GIVE URSELF AN ANEURYSM AND I LOVE YOU SO DON'T DO THAT BUT EXPLAIN URSELF TO MEEEEE. Maybe my view of her is also coloured by my own experiences of being kind of like her (I had/have a thirst for LEARNING. I read every book we got in school, for fun. I read EXTRA stuff, for fun. I accelerated my classes, for fun. Well, mostly it was so I could get out of school earlier because, OI what a stupid institution of teaching that I did not agree with. UR METHODS BUG ME. I'm mostly a hands on, SHOW ME, GIMME PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE kinda kid) but there's something about her that I just totally love. It's probably because Emma's portrayal of her breathed SO MUCH MORE into this PERSON. She's flawed and she knows it. She owns it. She tries not to dwell on it but it's there and she takes it and puts it in her little bag of experience and moves on trying not to make the same mistake twice. She is aware.

Your fic recs are not giving me any incentive to study for my last final, I'LL HAVE YOU KNOW.

But but but please do not stop reccing because I love it all and always need more fic so ty ty, THESE LOOK FABULOUS. I shamefully do not really browse Porkey for fic anymore, so thank you for doing the work for me lol.

Sunny: HP the possibilitysunny_serenity on December 15th, 2010 06:21 pm (UTC)
I AM SO SORRY. *meep*

You can never have too much fic. Portkey is a monumental task. The volume is just... wow, overwhelming sometimes. Thankfully their filter/search engine is frakking awesome. That makes life a little easier.

Anyway! Hermione! ♥ She remains basically my favorite part of Harry Potter like, ever (close second being Luna). I've always been pretty school- and book-oriented myself (though not to the crazy extent that she is lol), so her character always appealed to me. And then she gets all badass and I am just like YES, SMART CHICKS REPRESENT! lol

And, well, Emma Watson's pretty much a BAMF. :D I loved her long hair, and her short hair was really a shock for me, but I totally understand why she did it and I love the Audrey Hepburn vibe she's rocking. Seriously, that girl be classy. AND WHAT IS THAT ONE GIF FROM, I AM STRANGELY FASCINATED BY THAT THING SHE'S DOING WITH HER EYEBROWS. IT'S JUST LIKE SO EMMA FFFFFFFFFF. ♥
Sunny: HP high fivessunny_serenity on December 15th, 2010 06:24 pm (UTC)

Word. Just. Word.

OMG! I have huge girl!crush on Emma Watson. That last gif? I have no idea... looks like a photoshoot or something. I LOVE IT. She's all 'whut?' *mischievous smirk* 'just kidding'. LOVE. HER. OMG.
A Figure Of Speech: [harry potter]afigureofspeech on December 17th, 2010 10:29 pm (UTC)
I was actually talking about the gif where she's like *pointed look* *eyebrows* *HANDS!* but the last gif is awesome too! :D

Oh, yeah that's from Ballet Shoes. Emilia Fox is in it. MILI!!! Damn, I wanna watch Merlin now. Stupid show...
A Figure Of Speechafigureofspeech on December 21st, 2010 11:59 pm (UTC)
Hmmm, I might have to check that out. :D

Merlin is one of those shows that I keep hearing about, but some of the stuff I hear makes me rather hesitant to invest myself in it.
Sunny: Merlin Medieval Feminismsunny_serenity on December 23rd, 2010 12:05 am (UTC)
It's kind of awesome.

Hmm, if you're all about women power and grey areas of morality then def check out the first series. If you expect more of that from the second onward, skip it. Not missing anything. Another example of latent greatness passed over in favour of boring conventionality.

Also I read "Eye of the Storm" all in one night and omg! Why is it not finiiiiiiished?!? D:
Sunny: Buffy OMG Willsunny_serenity on December 18th, 2010 04:32 am (UTC)
OH IKR?! WHY IS IT SO GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD and so incomplete. *sigh*
A Figure Of Speechafigureofspeech on December 22nd, 2010 12:01 am (UTC)
IT IS SO GOOD. It's like, exactly what should have happened. It's even written like a HP book! Andandand I want to know what happens next! *sigh* That's the thing about fanfics. Sometimes the author just loses steam. *is guilty*
Sunny: SYTYCD Kateesunny_serenity on December 23rd, 2010 12:01 am (UTC)
Abandoned story makes me sad... *pout* I really liked that chapter when Harry & Hermione are screaming at each other in the common room and shit falls apart and it's just so... WHY IS THIS STORY ABANDONED?!?!?!?? WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY??? *cries*

Wow, you're truly the master of the HP animated image scene! That patronus one in particular is quite nice.

Good selection of a character to crush on. ;-)

I'm a huge fan of 'Eye of the Storm' but, sadly, it would appear that it's been abandoned. :-( And while the H/Hr seed was planted I don't think we actually saw it grow and flower, damn it. :-( :-(

Sunny: HP Trelawnysunny_serenity on December 20th, 2010 06:19 pm (UTC)
Hehe, I wouldn't call it 'mastery' so much as being a dork.

HG is BOSS. Plus, EW pretty much owns my soul at this point so...

This story. Damn. I wanna know where it goes! *sigh* I especially love the characterisation of Neville and how it relates to his relationship with Harry in this piece. I always liked their kindred spirit friendship thing. Plus, that screaming match Harry and Hermione have in the Gryffindor common room was fantastically brilliant.
