9:51 am - Eris.
Challenge: Chaos.
Words:100


“My meeting´s fallen through”.  Snape vanished the letter. “I have this afternoon free”.
“Could you . . .” .
Cover for you Minerva? The Headmaster´s been busy of late. You must feel snowed under. That said, the plants in greenhouse two will die if they´re not . . ..
 “Or eat someone,” Pomona interrupted.
“How long, exactly, is it since you had time off Poppy? And you mentioned your sister?”
Snape lifted an apple from the bowl. “Let me know what you decide.” Flitwick was out the door ahead of him. “Classics” or no, he was part goblin.
“You bastard.”

9:42 pm - Artificial Intelligence.
There is no such thing as artificial intelligence.
Intelligence is intelligence.
Intelligence will arise in any system sufficiently complex to support it.

9:20 pm - EMI for the lose.
A track by Amaral that I think my mother might like. Her Spanish is a bit rudimentary so I find it on youtube with the lyrics in English.

Only not.

For the usual idiotic reasons.

I´ve paid for the album but I´m not sure where the hell I put it and I can´t find the external DVD dirive and anyway, I´d need still to find the lyrics in English.

And yes, some small quantity of wine has been involved.

Stupid. Stupid.

She´s buggered off to her bed. She hasn´t heard and so doesn´t like something she would have, I think, have liked and probably have been prepared to pay for.

7:08 pm - Wikileaks temporarily shuts down due to lack of funds.

But Paypal is again able to accept donations.

That business with Trafigura and Carter Ruch trying to prevent reporting of Parliament was infuriating.

1:26 pm - Sleaze: the extradition of Gary McKinnon.
Duck houses and moats worry me less than the fact that our esteemed government have decided to hand a man who went looking for UFO’s to a group who have, apparently, expressed the wish to see him 'fry'.

On the basis of suspicion only. Under an Extradition act that works only one way.

So cunning and dangerous is Mr. McKinnon that he miscalculated the time difference and attempted to take control of a computer whilst someone was working at it.

5:54 pm - ???
Walkers SENSATIONS Vintage Chedder and Onion Chutney Flavour Crisps.

Not, IMO, very nice but, and I quote, 'MADE WITH REAL INGREDIENTS'.

Had I noticed this prior to purchase then they would not have made it home. We can't have reality intruding, after all.

Title: Most Excellent, Dude.
Author: unlikely2
Challenge: # 259. Snape and the other movie.  (Guess).
G


'While you are in the right general area geographically, you are a good thousand years out. Aside from which, Merlin is not generally believed, by most normal people, to have been a real person.' The short, blond one checked the directory, lips moving silently. Black and white images of oversized and irritable, larangytic pepperpots swirling through his mind, Snape eyed their 'conveyance'.
'I could, however, provide you with a list of suitable candidates,' he said, 'for a consideration.' The tall, dark one gazed at him open mouthed. Snape sighed.
'I take it that that is no ordinary phone box.'



[  Bill and Ted's excellent adventure with references to Doctor Who.]

3:10 pm - Not Jo's fault.
Really.

She's got kids.

We all know what happened to books like George Orwell's 'Nineteen Eighty-Four' in in the old Soviet Union. The real book describes the fall of the magical world into totalitarianism. Deathly Hallows doesn't look like JKR's work because much of it isn't. The Powers That Be employ some very clever people. How hard would it be to snag some ideas off Fanfiction.net and fake a novel? That's the reason for all that camping. They think that's what their opponents do.

The chances of the real book surfacing in a time period such that any of us alive today could expect to read it are probably dependent upon how much attention we pay to the the actions of 'Ministry's of Magic' in the real world, and as to what they might be . . .

Well I couldn't possibly comment. ;)

So I was sitting, quietly reading, when I was seized, on either side of the head by needle sharp claws and I realised that there was something chewing my hair. I removed the culprit (gently).  A beat, a flying leap and then a set of teeth in the jugular. (And, yes, I had fed her.)

She's a very small cat but exceedingly ambitious.

Lamb and lentil stew.
For three. Doubled up the quantities and gave what was left to the pooch. While reviewing the unwisdom of this, sat down on a squirmy cushion.
Had forgotten about the cats.
Not that she cares.
Still purring wildly. (Whilst planning to use my head as Cape Canaveral tonight).

Not fanfic.

We read the subtext that we're now told wasn't there. We, in a way, confabulated our very human desire for redemption with the skills of an actor notorious for subverting the villain's role and our own need for it all to make sense. We taught ourselves to write. We spun fragile, amazing constructions of logic, webbed into and over all the plotholes and we created 'Snape'.

Rowling's Snape turns out to be very different. Her Hogwarts too.

Perhaps we can fix it again and make sense of it all (again kudos to Rowling for the creation), but if we do it will be more like 'Wicked', 'The Wind Done Gone', 'Wide Sargasso Sea.'

It won't, I think, be fanfic.



I posted this a while ago. on sigune's journal.

Perhaps She's been kind and deliberately left loopholes.

I'd like to think so.

Author’s note: ‘All was well.’  That just begs for fanfic.

10:51 am - Travesty. (SPOILERS).
The wave collapsed on the wrong book.


I'm just wishing I could remember who described it as 'a steaming great heap of fanfic fodder'.
