Soaring into the third installment of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, we find ourselves in a familiar place, but with a backdrop different from what we left behind in the previous movies. Whether it was the natural darkness emerging from the third book, the change of directors, from Chris

with a quote from Roy Batty, the doomed replicant (android) who was given human emotions to be able to appreciate
all the wonders of life, including the visual, but afforded only four years of
lifespan to enjoy them.

There is something about a forest in its living, breathing oneness that gives it an aura of actual sentience.

Guy Fawkes Day
Burns one man's vendetta on fires of drunk delight while Heaven's rainbows burn and sparkle in the sky.
The fascinated coo while boredom freezes cold and watches while his breath fades steaming into night.
The pennies for the guy jingle in their tin while he a traitor burns, his Cath'lic soul in Hell.
The animals run scared, not from fireworks, but from th'unholy sound of Guido's punishment.
He screams a silent scream that no-one else can hear, save God and pets and Satan's wailing hordes.
“A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy.”
– Guy Fawkes

''The Autumnal Equinox'' by Aty S. BehsamJournal Skin By ginkgografix''The Autumnal Equinox'' by Aty S. Behsam in Personal More Like This
I love drawing and painting my characters so my friend always picks a full cast for each of my stories based on the looks and attitudes described for each character, and I draw/paint them.
Most of my works feature the cast picked for the characters of a Young Adult novel, "The Autumnal Equinox".
"The Autumnal Equinox" is a Fantasy/Romance dual narrative story about seventeen-year-old Michael and his girlfriend Anahita, who live under dictatorship and in a pretty controlled society. Soon Anahita reveals her true identity to Michael, and lets him know that he belongs to another society, much more powerful than humans.
As Michael discovers his powers and realizes the truth about his real family, he begins to question his presumptions about good and evil, and even his sense of moral

Death Eaters and Pureblood TraditionalistsThis is something I posted on FAP and The HPN a few weeks back, I want to share it with all of you now! I hope you like it.Death Eaters and Pureblood Traditionalists in Personal More Like This
Almost half of the Ministry of Magic is dedicated to keeping the secret from Muggles. Underage magic detection only works for muggleborns. The Ministry keeps an eye on big muggle inventions – bathrooms, trains, cars, etc. were all taken from the Muggles and adapted for Wizarding use. The way I see it, there are two views towards Muggles. Arthur Weasley, with his 'look at what they made! Aren't they clever to come up with such things when they don't have magic!' Which always sounds like a human going 'Good boy! Did you see that new trick my dog learned?!' A pro Muggle book is called "The Philosophy of the Mundane: Why the Muggles Prefer Not to Know". That's one perception of Muggles, the pro Muggle perception. Muggles are below us but they're harmless! But then you get the Traditionalist Pureblood views of the Black's and the Malfoy's. I bet you they can tell yo
Clearing Some things UpI just want to clear something up for non Snape fans:Clearing Some things Up in Personal More Like This
When we (or I should say I, I don't want to put words in someone else's mouth) say that Snape is not a bad teacher or a bully, I mean it within the HP universe.
The sad fact is that NONE of the teachers at Hogwarts would be allowed to teach in modern day American schools, and would all be fired for inappropriate behavior. AND THAT'S THE KEY - the books aren't set in modern day America. Teaching in Britian is different than it is here, and teaching in the 70's or 90's is different than modern day teaching. How much I can't say, because (obviously) I wasn't going to school in Britian in the 70's.
Here's some excerpts from Terri's wonderful essay (link) :
"Moreover, it's also perfectly all right at Hogwarts for teachers to use insults and humiliation against students in ways that wouldn't always fit modern Muggle ideas of best pedagogical practices. That

ACTA (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) is another bill that the government is considering. Apparently, it's worse than SOPA. I don't know much about it, but the second link is a really great video that you should watch and get a good sense of what this is all about.
"This is our apocalypse - not the world burning to the ground. Instead we will be melting from the inside out as the government takes everything that is good to us. The internet is the only place we have freedom.
This is our 2012."

The Bluepulse Holiday Winter Contest~UPDATE~The Bluepulse Holiday Winter Contest in Personal More Like This
Okay, I have a LOT of updates for you guys. Today is officially the last day of the contest! The contest will end tonight at 11:59 PM mountain time so keep those last-minute entries coming! Voting will start tomorrow or January 3rd!
Also, it's come to my attention that one of our participators and volunteer prize-writer has deactivated their account. I'm going to still keep the entry up and, unless LostMyGIr appears on this site in a different account, they will not be eligible to enter the voting portion of the contest and won't win a prize (so we don't have 'no one' taking a big prize). I will also need a backup writer to take their position.
ALSO! Young Justice: Invasion starts up again January 5th on Cartoon Network if you guys haven't already heard!! Though the "new" episode that will air has been leaked on the Internet and many people have already seen it, I truly urge you all to turn on your TV's and watch it (if you can)!

I am saddened to tell you that our former admin, Whisperwings, has passed away. Below is a message from her family:
February 17 8:30am mountain time:
It is with heavy hearts that we must inform you of the passing of our darling daughter, Alie. Her final days were fairly peaceful, sleeping much of the time but also able to watch some of the Winter Olympics and enjoy her favorite event, figure skating. Her final moments were peaceful with both parents by her bedside.
We have all been preparing for this day for the past several weeks, knowing it was coming far faster than we hoped. From the moment in December when the news came of her terminal illness, Alie has continually amazed us with her positive attitude and limitless spirit. We have all learned from her selfless approach to life, her giving nature, and her passion for the possibilities that life hold for all of us She was so thankful for all of the outreach shown to her by her frie
