This week, Potterdom had its twentieth anniversary. I always felt somewhat on the periphery of the fandom - I enjoyed the books and read some of the fanfic, I did have some opinions and theories while the books were published, but I never felt compelled to write fanfic myself, I didn't ship anyone with anyone else, and I don't think I had a Harry-Potter-related argument with anyone. Oh, wait, I think I did argue, but only in one post, about how whoever sorted the Beatles into HP houses and put John in Slytherin and Paul in Gryffindor was completely wrong, and then I wrote some silly meta fic to prove it. But other than that.

Anyway: I'm still fond of the books and some of the fanfic, and so I was delighted to see [profile] fernwithy celebrated the anniversary by writing a story about Harry shortly after Voldemort's death, trying to figure out where to go from there, and, not so coincidentally, what to do with Grimmauld Place 12, which as you'll recall Sirius left him, co-starring Kreacher and Andromeda Tonks, with cameos for Dudley and Petunia Dursley,


It captures grief, survivor's guilt, empathy, hope so very, very well.

Meanwhile, I just found there's this lovely bit from the last convention which both Stephen Furst and Peter Jurasik attended:

Boo on the cheapness of Warner Brothers, but aww on these two.

I recently read Gerry Conway's original "The Amazing Spider-Man" run (the one that killed off Gwen Stacy and had the original Clone Story-Arc) and... am I the only one that sees this?

Does this count as Context is for the weak? )

SECRET EMPIRE 4 may be our best-received issue to date, because a) Leinil Yu is a god, b) Hank Pym is the most interesting Marvel character. -- Nick Spencer

Conclusion : Je croyais que ça allait être mignon et rigolo… c’était complètement hilarant ! Et graphiquement très joli. Pour tous les enfants, petits et grands voire même vieux !

In short: Three short stories about farm animals—a down-to-earth pig and irresponsible rabbit and duck forced to get a human baby to her parents after a stork crashlanded on their farm; a fox unable to frighten hens, kidnaps eggs and… is forced to raise baby chicks; the rabbit and duck mistakenly believe they have killed Santa and force the pig to help them save Christmas.
The trailer focused on the fox only; I thought it would be cute and funny… well, it was hilariously funny. And also cute. But mostly funny. And prettily drawn and animated!
