  • My greatest achievement in life to date: successfully editing the Hermione Granger entry on the Harry Potter wiki from "Hermione Jean Weasley, nee Granger" to "Hermione Jean Granger".

    BechtelAuthor What? Why?

    Did she not take the Weasley name when she got married?

    guineapiggirl Nope. Not all women do! A third of British women don't, so you don't have to sound quite so shocked! And we have in-series evidence of this happening: Professor McGonagall. And possibly Tonks- I'd have to check that one. It always ruffled my feathers that the wiki made that assumption , but I didn't have any evidence to counter it. But then in the new Pottermore short set in 2014, 34-year-old Hermione is referred to as Hermione Granger (and Luna Lovegood is Lovegood not Scamander), in contrast to Ginny, who is Ginny Potter :D

  • You're old. O-o Haiii~

  • You back? o.o

    guineapiggirl Hmmmm... back is sort of possibly overstating it at this current time. Mebe... I'm sort of sort of back. So I'm posting my new thing on here, but that might be about it at the mo. Pretty busy with life and shiz. Fancy checking it out? ;) An as-of-yet unnamed thing about crows, women and wizardry, Chapter 1

  • R U still here. Guinea?

  • Hi, guinea! Thank you for reading my poem! The lines that you thought were haphazardly thrown together, were, admittedly, at first, haphazardly thrown together, but they're actually integral to the poem. Lemme break it down for you (I like explaining, I'm not saying you're dumb) "but i am a chunk of functioning insanity, (I'm really drunk and confused about my feelings right now, but I'm still okay)
    smooth clockwork ticking toward midnight: (I'm going towards midnight (I later describe the girl as midnight; midnight is the girl))
    a percolating scream of delight off the balcony. (Midnight is the girl, and also this. This poem is based off real events, and we were in a hotel (with balconies) and she screamed off of it because it was cold and windy and exhilarating)" But all that stuff in the parenthesis wouldn't sound very good. :) Anyway, thanks for looking at my poem so deeply and critically. You're awesome.

    guineapiggirl OK! That makes a lot more sense :) I don't know if everyone readign the poem will pick that up, but then maybe they don't need to. I enjoyed it lots anyway!

  • Thanks for the follow! *follows back*

  • Me: "Come come! We are all friends here. Or should be; for the laughter of Mordor will be our only reward, if we quarrel." Isn't that a brilliant quotation?
    My Mum: Oh, yeah. Is that from Harry Potter?

    ongoeslife Is that an actual quotation from one of the books/movies, though? I don't remember it if so...

  • Hmmm, eeek it's really hard to work at a word limit (for me anyway) so that's really cool. Well you've got 122 words left, that's quite a bit. I think rather than having a paragraph of solid description you could just add in a sentence or two when needed. I don't really think anything should be cut because it's all quite relevant to the story.

    guineapiggirl thank you! :D
