brace yourselves for the fappage fallout
I read this article a few days ago: The story behind the most controversial scene in 'Hallows'
. It's vaguely spoilery for a scene not in any of the books and written exclusively for the movie.
Now, I've just read this VERY SPECIFIC, VERY SPOILERY article
on The Scene. I cannot stop giggling in anticipation of the batshittery which will inevitably follow.
There's no way this went in there without Rowling's approval, but I've yet to come across any interviews with her on the matter. I hope she has a fabulous time tormenting as many tin-hatters as possible, though. ♥!

"Besides, if HP Cornfield REALLY hate you, then you must be doing something right"
Thanks to sheep
who first found a lot of these posts. It's the semi-regular Lysette/Lissy report! As an aside, she's discovered HP_Cornfield. But don't worry about hurt feelings. She's boasting about it to the "Can't Stand Teh Holy Defenderzz' thread. "Besides, if HP Cornfield REALLY hate you, then you must be doing something right"
Probably the most outrageous comparison this time around. R/Hr shippers bashing H/Hr shippers are like Fred Phelps at a soldier's funeral.
Repeatedly coming in to defend Teh Holy Defenderzz on a Can't Stand Teh Holy Defenderzz Thread is OFF TOPIC, but I guess they figure they can't "Save" the Unwashed Heathen Disgruntled Fans if they don't force their way on Disgruntled Threads because it is not like the Unwashed Heathen will come on their threads. Can't convert them if they can't force them to see the error of their ways. They are rather like those idiots from Kansas that go around protesting Gays at the funerals of Service Men who were killed in Iraq. What one has to do with the other I do not know, aside from they get on the News for it. They and their message are UNWANTED and totally inappropriate. One Father sued them because they disrupted his son's funeral and won, although last I heard, the Church involved is refusing to pay the damages. Figures.( In other news, Harry Potter is like Winston Churchill (in a bad way), Ugly Betty, Bridget Jones' Diary, and a Lifetime movie Lysette saw on TV last night, but Rowling isn't like Margaret Mitchell who got hit by a car. )

Okay, so as most of you likely know, JKR wrote a little book of fairy tales called "The Tales of Beedle The Bard." It's handwritten, there are only seven copies in existence, and Amazon.com bought one at auction for roughly four million American dollars.
They've put photos and reviews
up on their site, but the real joy is in the public discussions at the foot of the page. Here's a comma-ridden taste from a thread
entitled 'PATHETIC'.Clearly, Mr. Chapman, had you read the books, you'd know, that no one, was actually, turned into a toadstool. Perhaps, if you'd referred to Mr. Draco Malfoy's transfigurement into a weasel, then, your snide words, might have held more credence. Enjoy your bitterness.
With 60 threads and counting, it's going to be good and it's going to last forever.

"You don't know the history of the Third Reich! I do!" Back in August
, Lissy/Lysette ran into a spot of trouble with the old Harry Potter/Hitler comparisons. For your amusement.
Lissy: I tend to view the Post Voldemort Wizarding World as a cross between thirties Germany under Chancellor Hitler, when undesirables were already starting to disappear, and Salem under Cotton Matther, where certain people were Born Evil, and needed to be rooted out and destroyed for the good of the whole. Matther had the right to decide who was worthy to live, and who was not. Only HIS opinion Mattered. I hope Harry doesn't mind that Dumbledore deemed him as Not Worthy. On the other hand, Ronald Weasley is the Poster Boy for the New World Order. The Fourth Reich. ( I bet I know far more about what it was like 'on the Ground' so to speak living in Hitler's Germany prior to the invasion of Poland in '38 than you think. )
I would never want to live under Rowling's New World Order.

A sporked version of this wank is available at The H.M.S. STFU. Though I suppose, technically, it should be just "H.M.S. STFU", since it otherwise works out to "The Her Majesty's Ship STFU", but... then again, without the "the" it sounds wrong.
Now, see, that's over-analysing. However, not quite so much as today's crank does: D.I.A.T.S.S.I.S.E., or QWERTYUIOP, as I shall refer to it, is a crank theory from before Deathly Hallows which, when proven wrong, sent its author into a rant of epic proportions.
Basically, it says that D
mpersonated A T
nd - or QWERTYUIOP. This was the grand solution to all the mysteries of the Harry Potter series. As he explained:
To solve a mystery, most mystery genre fans know you have to use logic and deductive reasoning. What is logical to the fantasy genre fans is illogical in real life. I believe J. K Rowling is about to end the series in a logical, reasonable manner.
...a logical, reasonable manner which involves Dumbledore randomly impersonating Snape and agreeing to kill himself. But then, I'm a fantasy genre fan, and, according to him:
The Harry Potter fantasy genre fans believe the plot of Half Blood Prince has Dumbledore, the most intelligent wizard ever born, assign to a 17 yr. old teenager the almost impossible job of saving the world alone with no backup or support. Just think how illogical that conclusion is, but the fantasy genre fans tell you that was the plot of Half Blood Prince. They tell you it is logical for Dumbledore to have assigned this task to Harry Potter, and that the plot of Deathly Hallows will simply be about how this unqualified teenager finds the horcruxes, gets past their protection, destroys them, and then locates and kills the most evil and powerful wizard of all times. What a stupid idiot plot. I hope J. K. Rowling doesn't insult my intelligence with such an idiot plot. Examples of the errors of the logic of the fantasy genre fans is given throughout this site.( Read more... )

Harmonians: Still Oppressed, part CXIV in an ongoing series
Over in the comments of the latest lj_biz post, usofbs posts
a comic comment (Note: comic is NSFW, as one of its panels has a banned Snarry pic)
explaining how LJ could possibly have decided to delete a few more journals lately.
So why am I posting about this here? Because the comic blames it all on the Harmonians! OH NOEZ!
Cue Logansrogue losing her shit in futher comments
:( Cut for tl;dr )
When told to chill, because it was just a joke, Logansrogue and other Harmonians chime in with: "But it wasn't funny! If it has been funny, I'd be laughing right along with you! Srsly!"
Right. Sure. Current Mood: Fan-Fucking-tastic

Ah-ha! There really is a different version of DH around!
Lysette (Lissy) on the FAP ARGH thread: http://forums.fictionalley.org/park/showthread.php?s=&postid=1730393#post1730393What do you all think of Harry picturing Ginny in a wedding gown getting married to another guy?
As IF! Harry was just proving what a little sod he is. Gin-Bot doesn't breathe without his permission. If she did, he would lock her back in her Tower until she got with the program. I think DH!Harry despises weakness. He might have told Ron he liked her because she was tough from having six brothers, but Harry is always disgusted and ignores her whenever Bot shows a sign of weakness or emotion at all. That was why he was disgusted with Hermione, so it would carry over to the Bot. What was he going to tell his best friend, "The ONLY reason I like your sister is that she puts out." Even RON would slug him over that. Good thing Lavender didn't have any brothers when Ron, as we now know, had to punish Hermione repeated over something that happened two years ago. I would have loved it, if Harry informed Ronald that the ONLY reason he liked Ron's sister was because she is easy! I figure Ron would whine and blister and run away. That is another advantage with Ginny, Ron is afraid of Harry, so it is not like Ronald is going to Do Anything, no matter how insulting Harry is towards Ginny's Honor. Besides, Molly wants them married, so told Ronald that if he did anything to jeopardized Ginny's chances, then he had better NEVER try to come back to the Burrow. Molly is mercenary. Molly is the Mom in Reba's song, "Fancy." "You be Nice to Harry, Ginny, and he will take care of you.' Only that Mom wanted her daughter to live, and couldn't see any other way.
It's one thing to "interpret" the text differently from others, but when you start making crap up to fit your worldview...

I shouldn't even need to point this out at this moment but. YES. WE ARE SPOILER FULL OVER HERE. I'd prefer stuff to go behind cuts but, honestly, we're all over the wank, and trying to keep us spoiler-free would require attention span and sobriety which I just don't always have. So, if you're going totally spoiler-free, it'd probably be best to defriend and not read this comm for a while.

Publisher and Author Wank! http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20070719/us_nm/arts_potter_review_dc
In an extraordinarily bad analogy, a Bloomsbury representative compares the breaking of the HP release/review embargo by American newspapers and suppliers to the Boston Tea Party.
General reaction: OH HELL NO
. (Possible spoilers in link.)
We foolishly thought only the internets were in danger, but...could the Potterdammerung result in the next Revolutionary War?

Yes, Jo is laughing at you.
I guess we should start a post about the (edit) confirmed REAL
epilogue going around. SPOILERS
and NON-STOP WHINING
in the links. ONTD_trash
: Scans in the comments.spoil_me_dh
: Your writing is shit, Jo!
Edit: News sites are talking about the leak now and there's a locked post on spoil_me_dh where the book was scanned showing the dust jacket, colored hard bookcover, copyrights, title and dedications pages. Unless someone decided to fake all that as well as 700+ pages, the leak is real.
Edit^2: A mousy pointed out there is a new lj community: its_a_fake
Edit^3: There's a plan of mass suicide on JKR's lawn
if she doesn't write
a Harmoanian ending
the book better. (Thanks nekoama!)
Edit^4: A mousy pointed out there's a new picture of the book
going around with a certain lj community in the background. Another blow for the FAKE side.
Is there any more wank over the Movie? Or is everyone too busy wanking about DH? I thought for sure that there would be a wankfest over the changes made to the story. Namely the Harry/Hermione scenes.
|Thursday, July 12th, 2007|
Just to cover the important bits before the big day starts to arrive:
1. We're still taking H/Hr wank after the Potterdamerung.
2. If problems arise at any point soon, my e-mail is available from my JF userinfo
3. If H/Hr really DOES happen in the last book, I'm fully willing to turn this boat around and use this place to mock the OBHWF shippers, assuming any of you lot act as crazy as the Harmonians did.
Any questions/comments/issues/concerns/cute pictures of baby rodents?
Current Music: Manic Street Preachers - A Song For Departure
PK--full of sound and fury signifying spoilers
If you haven't guessed, there are going to be possible spoilers for DH
in this post. Mainly because Portkey's shipping spoilers thread is flying through the pages with everybody talking about the spoilers
. So, you know, there might be DH SPOILERS
. I, of course, cannot comment on the reality of these spoilers (who can?) but if you're avoiding them then this post might not be for you. ( Grab your wading boots, kids... )
And so it continues. Again, over 100 people on that thread alone and it's moving FAST. It updated fifteen pages WHILE I WROTE THIS. I'll ETA as needed, I guess.
ETA: Is needed. They've gone and maxed out the thread and are six pages onto a new one. Find the new thread here.
Lookit all the fishies in the barrel...
ETA: Is not needed. Except...remember the wank that got deleted because of the underage poster? Well: I think it's a well-orchestrated hoax perpetrated to get revenge for the person who posted all the H/Hr spoilers a few days back, which NAPPA had to clean off the forums. They were all over the place and I feel certain that the person's admission of guilt really made some Herons angry.
LOL! 'Fess up, you bastards!
ETA: Removing troll bait.
The SPORFLE!ETA: Do we all recall how the spoiler people were treated? Questions? Demands? Sarcasm and disbelief? Well a flyby poster named Marty
shows up and says 'I know for a fact that the chapter list is real! but the rest is sour grapes! it's all H/Hr!' and everybody reacts the same way! Oh, wait
, no they don't. They accept Marty and his information with open arms! Of course they were right all along! See the third thread
for the lulz.
The Slightly More Important ETA: The orginal Source of the spoilers has apparently deleted her LJ. I'm asking people who 'know' the source to not discuss the person. If she has real information, I'd rather protect her than out her. The internet is for being anonymous.
The Final ETA: Forums are now password protected (dh) and that means, sadly, that you must be a member to get in and see the lulz. But the lulz are pretty much over. Current Mood: *sporfle!*

Everbody into the boat; the flood is starting early.
D: Anybody who wanks that energetically has
to be underage.
My thanks, still, to shallow_kid
for the amusement and to sheep
for the truly magnificent save. Thanks also to LJ's Tartanboxers
for hosting it for us while it lasted.
You're all welcome to stay in the boat for the next two weeks. Current Mood: Guilty

I'll take 'Words that start with D' for 600, Alex
Apparently Emerson isn’t receiving as much hatemail and fangirling as he’d like these days. Earlier he made a post
on Mugglenet to help rectify the situation:( Speculation, speculation )
Naturally everyone’s taking his comments very well! However, it’s not the Harmonians that are winning the wank trophy this time, it’s the Good Shippers and some random Olbermann bashers. Over 350 comments so far.( Read more... )
He's loving this, isn't he?
