You've got to be kidding...

HBPmoviepics has new pictures of, obviously, HBP. Some of them are pretty cool.

And then there's Narcissa...
On a happier note, I watched The Edge of Love tonight. I really enjoyed it. Matthew Rhys did an amazing job as Dylan Thomas, Keira and Sienna had a lovely friendship (and yes, I could easily see some femslash there), and Cillian ...

Too late for second guessing

So that little drabble inspired by this picture exploded into full-blown fic...

Title: Stoic
Author: Lilith
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Summary: Never, ever, admit that it hurts.
A/N: 700 words, rated PG for language, beta-ed by [info]sarcastic_jo (who was denied mpreg, sorry).


In the real-life, grown-up world that I prefer to avoid, I'm feeling a bit maudlin. It's been a frustrating money day. I put most of my savings into a money market account at the end of March, and three months later $700+ is gone. Poof! Yes, I know, this happens, and it might come back. But it's really hard to think about that much money as an abstraction, and I'm fighting the urge to withdraw the little bit that's still in there and hide it in my mattress.

On the other hand, I keep reminding myself that I have a nice apartment in a place that I love, I've got more than enough to eat (*pets the belleh*), and I'm not extravagant but I can afford a few luxuries. I'm not hurting, and I'm aware of what a privilege that is. I know that many aren't nearly as lucky.

I'm also very thankful that I can escape into fandom so easily. Reading and discussing fics with other passionate people is bringing me a lot of joy these days, as is sharing the squee over silly things and seeing all the creativity being poured out all over my flist. It's inspiring, truly.

Speaking of squee, some new promo shots have appeared, ranging from the ridiculous (SGA) to the sublime (HBP). In spite of myself, I'm getting excited about HBP. Cynicism quails and flees in the face of high-res Draco.

And if you haven't yet, go tell [info]ponderosa121 just how damn talented she is. I haven't seen anything this lickable in ages!

I take that back. Cillian on an Irish stamp is more lickable. (Colm Meaney gets a stamp too, if anyone wants to lick Chief O'Brien!)

There, see, I'm in a better mood already. Happy 4th of July to those who celebrate it ... Happy Doctor Who-eve to those who celebrate that ... and Happy Friday to everyone else!

*flails lots and lots and lots and falls over squealing*

Trailer for THE EDGE OF LOVE

This looks sooooo good!

(Thanks to the CillianSite for the vid!)

I think it's time for bed

It has not been the best day. I found out I owe a huuuuuge tax bill. It's not unexpected, and I've put money aside so I can cover it. Still, I was hoping for some better news. Or a miracle. That would have been nice. Sadly, it wasn't to be.

And it's been snowing all day. For pete's sake, enough already!

I've cheered myself up a bit by staring at this new picture from The Edge of Love:

The world just looks more beautiful in sepia, doesn't it? And part of me longs for the days when long gloves were in style. They'd go so well with the sweatshirts I wear these days.

But there's a bit of melancholy in seeing this picture, too, since I recently resigned from my duties on The CillianSite. I just ... lost my Cillian mojo, I guess.

I really wish spring would get here.

ohmygodohmygodohmygod! The trailer for Watching the Detectives is out! And it looks really good!

(Click the picture to watch.)

On the one hand, I'm not a big fan of the overdone "quirky girl wins guy" genre. But on the other hand ... Cillian as a rock star! Cillian as a cowboy! Cillian as a total geek! Cillian soaking in the tub! Yes, go ahead, pack all my fantasies into one bite-sized package, kthx.

And on a completely different but hilarious subject...

Cillian Murphy was voted the 2nd sexiest man in a Film Ireland survey on Irish attitudes about sex in films.

Out of many interesting things in this survey, this quote stuck out:

...when asked to list their fantasy Irish on-screen coupling, most readers voted for male on male action. Jonathan Rhys Meyers in a clinch with Colin Farrell was top fantasy, with Cillian Murphy and Colin Farrell in second place and Rhys Meyers and Murphy in third.

Amen to that!

Thanks for [info]franzi1981 for spreading the news.

Takes a deep breath...

This picture, taken after one of Cillian's many fights with Chris Evans in Sunshine, has completely broken me:

This scene happens right after the girls leave in disgust because the boys are always fighting, btw.
