I don't even like the Harry Potter series, and I agree with this. Minerva McGonagall will always be my favorite Harry Potter character.

People fail to see McGonagall as a main character because she’s not a student nor does she actively participate in Harry’s life. But she basically keeps the school from falling apart when it’s overrun by evildoers and keep the students in line while understanding that the school is supposed to be fun. She is first and foremost there for her students before anyone else. She is a teacher because she loves teaching.


Also, I have absolutely no idea what's going on in Doctor Who
odette_river: (stock; ballet)
1. More gymnastics in this episode=a good thing

2. Ayla Kell's ballet technique shines through. I approve. Even though it makes me cringe when the steps really don't go with the music

3. The eating disorder plot is being handled so well. I AM SO PLEASED. SKINS, THIS IS WHAT I WANTED TO SEE FROM CASSIE. Well, not this necessarily, but something like this.

4. Kim whispering Sasha's name when he showed up on TV. I WILL SHIP THEM FOREVER.

5. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. THE REVEAL ABOUT EMILY IN THE LAST FIVE SECONDS. BRB LAUGHING FOREVER.

ETA: Watching Doctor Who now. River Song is already bothering me. But Amy Pond's hair is gorgeous.

Guys, Camelot this week. Oh man.

spoilers and a video )

Whoa, guys, whoa. I just realized this: Tamsin Egerton is playing Guinevere in that new show Camelot. Yeah, Tamsin Egerton, that would be the same person who played little!Morgaine in The Mists of Avalon back in the day.

...I don't even know what to make of that. My mind is blown.

So I'm poking around on the Scholastic website in an effort to procrastinate as much as possible, and what do I find? They're babies!

Also, you should try getting them to morph. They morph freaking giant animals. It's scary. And then I was confused because Ax wasn't there. BUT THAT'S BECAUSE AX HASN'T EVEN JOINED THE ANIMORPHS YET.

I finished the book yesterday and watched the movie today. I really want to like them both, but I don't know if I can. I wanted more emotion. The trailer is brilliant, though. It has all the emotion that I was looking for.

CAMELOT.

INCOHERENT. EVA GREEN. INCOHERENT.

So I'm currently watching the Disney Channel version of Avalon High. It's as bad as is to be expected, perhaps worse. And there's this random extra character who is maybe supposed to be Merlin? I haven't figured that out. But the thing it's done right? When hot boys stare creepily at you, they're actually evil and not Edward Cullen.

ETA: Never mind. They are just Edward Cullen. FAIL.

ETA again: Wait, WHAT. Arthur is a girl? Ah hahahahahahaha! Disney Channel, do you realize what you've done regarding all the shipping possibilities?

Also, no wonder it sounded like they were saying "Ally" all the time instead of "Ellie."

Somehow, Matt Smith's being on the Sarah Jane Adventures has added so much legitimacy to his version of the Doctor for me. I don't know why. But I spent all of Doctor Who's season trying to get used to him, and never really did. And now I'm feeling it. Maybe time was all I needed, or maybe I just needed to see him next to former companions instead of Amy Pond. I don't know, but I'm liking it.

Dear NCIS,

I hate this Tony/Ziva stuff. Mostly, I still watch the show because I miss the way it was. But then you go and pull parallels with kid!Ziva and Daddy David and things like that, and I LOVE IT. Do more of that, please.

Oh man. I knew it. YES. THE DRAMA. AND I SHIP MORGANA/ARTHUR SO HARD.

ETA: "What matters is what we feel."

Oh man, AND I SHIP UTHER/MORGANA.

AND WHILE I'M AT IT, I MIGHT AS WELL SAY THAT I SHIP MERLIN/MORGANA, TOO.

DAKOTA BLUE RICHARDS IS GOING TO BE IN THE NEXT GENERATION OF SKINS. I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO SAY TO THAT. EXCEPT OMG, OMG, OMG, LYYYYRRRAAAAAAAA!!!

DID THAT EPISODE JUST HAPPEN?

If you missed it, last night I sort of freaked out about the new musical sequel to Phantom of the Opera. At that point, I was halfway through listening to it. Now I've finished it and I am listening through it one more time, just to laugh some more. But here are my continued thoughts.

spoilers and more fun times )

For those of you who don't follow musical theatre very closely (which I assume is most or all of you), Andrew Lloyd Webber recently came out with a new musical. It's a sequel to Phantom of the Opera, set ten years in the future, although apparently the timeline is a bit messed up.

It gets better.

I'm currently listening to it. I'm halfway through right now. At first, I tried to take it seriously. Then I thought maybe I could think of it as a parody of itself and I'd enjoy it. Now I am listening to it for the lulz. And there are a lot.

spoilers and serious funnies )
