I guess I can ask a few questions!
1. If you've been re-reading (or have re-read recently enough to remember), what are your impressions now versus then?
2. Did you have any fan theories that came true, OR that were the exact opposite of what happened?
3. Did you write or read any fics that were eerily close to DH?
4. Anything else?
I am eventually going to do a Buffy/HP caption crossover. Or another one, I should say. Maybe over the weekend. :) And I will get to those drabbles eventually.
Not 100% sure why I'm being nostalgic - I've grown up, after all. I'm not the slightly naive 22 year old girl I was ten years ago. But I also think part of growing up is realizing some things will always stay with you. Besides, adulthood sucks sometimes, and one needs a retreat to simpler times.
So even if I feel I should be talking about properly adult things instead of squeeing over a book series I
used to really love, screw it, my LJ/DW's going to be nostalgic today. :P
Apparently I have the day to myself, so I may concoct a few drabbles or... something later.
Here is my assessment. Feel free to add your own input. I tried to do this humorously, as opposed to doing it as Srs Bsns, although there's also analysis to it.

Again, let me know who you would Sort, and where. Also, feel free to request any other fictional Sortings!
And so commences a lot of nostalgia in the next couple of days. :P
(Obviously there are still spoilers for all books. Also, my current commentary will be in italics.)
He DID find out through Kreacher!
ETA: After writing this, I'm not sure "crack theories" is the right term, but they're still not ones I think are remotely canon.
Maybe "would be cool if this happened" theories? Although Regulus being Crookshanks was definitely a crack theory.
What were some of your old theories? (Both crack theories and serious ones?)
Red hair happens. Lots of people have had, currently have, and will have red hair.
So why does everyone compare Ginny to Lily on basis of that?

So instead, I'm taking requests for post-DH or DH drabbles/ficlets. Preferably nothing overly angsty (I mean, within reason all things considered). I mostly write canon pairings, but may be able to experiment, so go for it. I also write gen. I'm also most interested in "in between" fics - that is, between when canon closes and the epilogue.
Alternatively, if you want me to write a missing moment piece for any of the books - since a LOT of you are re-reading - that's also fine.
I can't promise these will be done instantly, but I've set myself a deadline of September 2. :) Hopefully I get at least some done before then!
ETA: When I say not overly angsty, aftermath stuff is fine. I just mean with RL stuff, I'd rather not write the slow and agonizing death of a character, you know?
Also, I've opened this to people not on my flist. :)
