This week I had the pleasure of being interviewed for The Times Colonist, our daily paper here in Victoria, all about the Harry Potter books and movies!
I will have my Half-Blood Prince review up today, but I got home quite late (actually early this morning) from the Midnight screening of Deathly Hallows Part I and I have to be at work after only a couple hours sleep! Just wanted to give you all a link to the fantastic article by Michael D Reid of the TC.
And welcome to anyone who’s here because of it!

Hey there! 🙂 This is Bellatrix Lestrange from last night’s line, all of us right there front ‘n’ centre throughout, and that was all just the most singularly awesomely fabuloso time I daresay I’ve *ever* had! 😀 I did indeed first come across that article and mention made in the T-C, because I’d been wondering what tone their report on the day’s happenings would’ve taken…. (when it’s Michael D. Reid, who knows, right? 🙂 ) But it seemed like a perfectly decent article, and certainly I did notice that you were featured in it….good on ya, line-friend! 😀 (though I do have to wonder, awwwww, but where’s the Bellatrix-love, eh? I mean, honestly, surely people aren’t holding that whole Malfoy Manor-torturing thing against her….um, wait….eeep. 😉 Like with those re-enactments, too, which were of course simply awesome….but you know….LOL! 🙂 )
I was actually minded to comment on this blog of yours not only as a result of the newspaper article, natch (and was there coverage on last night’s news? I can’t believe it totally slipped my mind to give the head’s-up to friends ‘n’ family at home so’s they could keep an eye out for us, and tape our appearance….argh, curses!) – but also because, well….all of us, we never had the chance to exchange contact info, you realize?….and, well, I don’t know, I guess I feel like ‘twould just be nice to keep up with the HP group fandom’ing – e.g., what with talk of Quidditch’ing, quite possibly…. And then, too, I always wonder what potential interest there would be in costumed photoshoots, right?….since I’m always more than game for ’em, and I’ve actually done quite a few in my SW costume kit….but still definitely am rarin’ to for HP, and hey, any and all opportunities to trot out the costume kit, I’m *totally* all for that. 😀
And then, too, don’t we all in our HP-fanverse have to stick together anyway?….what with all the Muggles otherwise about, for one thing…. 😀 *laughs*
I called my dad today to get him to save the article in the paper! That’s a supercute pic of you Pippa! and the article was quite nice as well, positive about the potter experience. It was nice to read.
