Looks like there haven't been post here in a long long time... just checking to see if anyone is still around!

Camelot Treasures (Cary, NC) is having a Hogwarts Halloween party! The date is yet to be determined. Here's the info from their site:

We're working with a local library to bring in a wizard rock band to the the area (like Draco & the Malfoys or the Parselmouths)and party like there's no tommorrow. Costumes, treats, music, contestsand more. Voldemort can't stop the rock! Date and location TBA.


It'll be hard for them to really get anyone to play, seeing as most everyone'll be at Wrockstock Spooktacular, but it should be fun anyway. :)
 
 
Current Location: Kernersville, NC

I is new. Here be my introduction.


LJ user name: jillianetcetera 

Approximate Location: Lexington, South Carolina. Near Columbia. Ain't no one round these parts that likes Harry Potter as I like Harry Potter, don't seem.

Favorite characters: Snape, first and foremost and always. After that, give me Hermione, Viktor, Neville, Peeves, and some villains. Though I tend to prefer the villains with a blander edge to them. Tom Riddle in his adolescent evil glory, Filch in his cranky duties, Percy as the good little bureaucrat. Give me the sinister in the mundane, thanks.

Favorite ships: It varies. I like the strange ones. But I started out a big Snape/Hermione girl, so I'll list that. I look for a good psychological (or perverted!) edge in stories as much as a particular ship. I like to see Luna idly wondering about Snape, I like to see any girl feeling sorry for Neville, I like to see Peeves leering like a lech, I like to see Snape's personal experimentation, I like to see Lucius engage in his worn-out, tiresome aristocratical decadence, I like to see Hermione do a little dirty, dark magic on the side, and I also like to see Hermione looking sideways at Hagrid (hahaha!!). And I really like to see the potential of magic and magical beings in the realms of love and lust.

How do you participate in fandom?: I lurk about and read the occasional story. I ponder writing stories of my own, and sometimes jot little bits downs, but I've not published or completed anything. Potter is frequently discussed in my household. And more frequently thought about in my mind. I used to be more active in keeping up with things in fandom activity. These days I mostly just sit and contemplate in an isolated state. It suits.

Links to your art/meta/fiction/sites: Nothing to give right now. Maybe in the future.


I'd love to see some more SC members come round. I have tried to find fellow Pottergoofs in the local area, but they're scarce, and none have taken too well to me. I hope they're hidden somewhere, just out of sight...

And of course I would love to socialize with non-locals. I am a chronic lurker, but I'm also chronically lonesome, and ought to make more pals, or whatever the kids call them these days. Blah blah, point is, I'm glad to be here. Hey y'all.

Since seaislewitch has been spectacularly busy lately, I've agreed to take over the community.

I've made a few changes, mostly aesthetics. I've updated the layout, added a link list to the sidebar (any suggestions/additions would be welcomed!), and put in a mood theme!

Also, you may notice I've added some tags.

In the spirit of trying to keep the community as spoiler-free as possible, I've moderated joining, posting and commenting until at least mid-August.

I'd love for us to become more active, and in order to do that I think we may need to branch out and invite new members. Today, I've sent a few invites to people in the Triad area of NC. We'll see what happens. :)

I'm also looking for a few other regional mods.. particularly in the Charlotte area and also some in South Carolina. Volunteers will be welcomed.

Enjoy the book, guys!

Hey, guys!

I wanted to let some of ya'll in the Triad area know that there's finally a Meetup group for our area. You can find it here.

Also, I think we should try to "advertise" and get more members, and maybe get more active. With the book series ending, we should really step up the local fandom. I've noticed there doesn't seem to bee much. :(

Is anyone going? And if so, to which location? Are there other book release parties in the Raleigh area of which I should be aware?

The IMAX in Raleigh is playing Order of the Phoenix. I believe that's the only IMAX in the whole state.

Would anyone be interested in getting together to go see it in this format?
