So I’m watching Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and just realised something…
Snape interrogates Harry about the Potions not because he doesn’t like him (not entirely) but because Lily had been so good at Potions when she was at Hogwarts. Snape would have known this. Slughorn notes this when he’s taking to Harry about her in the Half-Blood Prince. And even though he knows Lily wasn’t there to teach Harry before he went to Hogwarts himself, I’ll bet Snape would have been hoping for just a little bit of Lily in Harry to remind him that she existed and that’s why he asks Harry all those questions. Even though in the end that might’ve been worse to live with…
So I have recently kickstarted a Wattpad account to hopefully get my writing out into more of the world. Usually anything I write will be posted on Tumblr, but there may be some longer stories on the Wattpad account too.
If anybody is interested, this is me here http://www.wattpad.com/user/missbreannakate
AU The Fault In Our Stars where Hazel Grace succumbs to the cancer and dies and in the last scene all you see is Augustus standing out side with a cigarette between his lips and a hand slowly reaching up to light it.
HOW IS THIS ANY BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL ENDING!!!!
This post ruined me.
THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND I AM CRYING ALMOST WORSE THAN THE ACTUAL TFIOS ENDING BECAUSE THEY ARE BOTH BEAUTIFUL AND SAD AND I DONT WANT EITHER TO BE TRUE BUT THEY ARE AND EVEN THOUGH THIS ISN’T REAL IT IS STILL DEFINITELY NOT OKAY
So, last night, I attended for the first time the Penguin Teen Australia Live (hosted by penguinteenaus) event held at Hoyts cinemas in Melbourne. It. Was. AMAZING! The Penguin crew put on an amazing show (and Felicity was a fabulous speaker, also I wanted to steal her shirt) and I am so glad I made the trip to the city to be there.
From the word go they had a Bookworld table to purchase the Penguin titles discussed, there were The Fault in Our Stars feels everywhere (the feels!) and of course, what would a Penguin night be without Vampire Academy to talk about! Nick Wheeler aka Adrian (from the Bloodlines book trailers) aka A WALKING GOD OF A MAN was there *fangirl screams* and RICHELLE MEAD came to the party via recorded message for the upcoming Penguin Teen TV. It was beautiful.
There are also so many good titles still to be released for the year! Being a Mead fan, I have to admit that The Immortal Crown and Silver Shadows are definitely top of my list, but Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld and Dangerous Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl are also going to have homes on my bookshelf when they are released.
In a nutshell, I just want to hop into my time machine and go back to last night. It was fun and fantastic, and I am totally in for any events in the future! Bring on PTALive2015, anyone?
