My first Snarry video

I thought I was going to give up, when I started learning video editing... so glad I persisted! This might be the first of many.

I'm Under Your Spell (Snarry - Snape/Harry)

(Slash, but completely innocent... just the story of a boy's crush on his teacher.)

Story: It's Harry's first year at Hogwarts, and he compares his sad, lonely life with the Dursleys to his exciting new life. He immediately develops a crush on his Potions professor. Harry's fascination for Snape and for the Wizarding world is one and the same, as Snape represents all the wonderful new things in his life.


Your result for The Harry Potter Husband Test...

Mrs. Snape

Your perfect HP man is Severus Snape.

You like a guy of loyalty and intelligence and don't really mind if he comes across as a bit harsh. Or a bit bastardy. Or if he happens to terrify every child who crosses his path. The point is that under that rough exterior lies...well, a rough interior. But under that is a soft, squishy center and you don't mind at all that you're the only person in the world who gets to see it.

Current interests

SO, I haven't posted in the longest time... it's time that I return - even if it is only to bless LJ with my magical presence, then glide away ethereally, leaving behind a hint of my perfume.

I just removed almost everybody from my friends list - as we were all strangers that never really connected, even though at some point I hoped we would. I've added several new communities with my current interests.

The pictures below represent the things that I've discovered very recently, and have come to love. Except for one, they are all related. 

Alan Rickman - Fantastic actor, sexy as hell, all-around loveable. Cuddling with him looks like pure heaven, and he can dance a mean tango! (Watch this if you don't believe me:
I'd love nothing more than to lay down in a soft bed, and have him read for me for hours (even the phone book would do!), preferably whispering it to my ear. His velvety, smooth, deep voice is better than sex! ;-)

Severus Snape - A sarcastic, cruel, hateful bastard of a professor, who goes out of his way to make his students miserable... Or at least, that is the first impression that he gives. (And second, and third...) But the more we get to know him through the Harry Potter books, the more we can't help but love him, even when we continues acting like a bastard. He is the character with more depth and more layers in the entire series... I can't help but daydream of playing with his hair, softly caress his unreadable mask of a face, hug him and tell him he is not alone... And I'd be there for him, as his best friend, even if he insulted me every ten seconds.

Harry Potter - and by that I mean: the books, the movies, the whole universe created by J.K.Rowling. I am not a fan of fantasy, so I never cared to give it a try. (Except for one time, when I watched the first 15 min of the 1st movie, got bored and gave up.) But eventually (maybe 3 months ago) I figured that HP was like rice: billions of chinese could not be wrong! So I popped the movie on the DVD player again, and watched the whole thing. There, I was hooked. In only 3 months I've watched all of the movies, read all seven books (finished the last one the day before yesterday!) and have read more fan fiction that I've read in a lifetime... Now my mission is to convert my husband, so I can have someone to talk about this stuff all day. :-) 

Closet Land - I can't reccomend this enough! One of my favorite movies at the moment, absolutely fantastic - never mind that it only has 2 actors, and they never leave this one room. For some uncomprehensible reason, it has never been released on DVD (what a crime!!!), but we can watch the full feature on YouTube:  I've seen it on some people's list of "The Ten Most Shocking Movies Ever", but I can't help but get hugely turned on by it... and it you see the comments on YouTube, most people do too - and they get ashamed by it, not understanding why a torture movie should be this erotic. Story: this woman is kidnapped from her own bed at night, tied up, blindfolded, and taken to this guy that works for some government agency. She writes children books, and he accuses her of having writen a political message disguised as an innocent story. She denies it, but he won't be convinced otherwise... and he is determined to make her confess. 
As horrible as this is, as inhumane are the things that he does to her, I can't help but wish that Alan Rickman would kidnap me, tie me up, and sit with me for hours, talking with his oh-so-sexy voice, whispering empty threats and trying to mess with my head. *drools* (As for the torture part, that wouldn't be necessary, thank you very much!)

Snarry - (Snape/Harry) - This confuses me a little. Why should a straight girl melt like butter, daydreaming of being a gay boy getting it on with his professor, is not something that I understand - but I embrace it.  I adore Snape, but thinking of him with women doesn't do anything for me. (I LOVE him and Lily, but that's love, which is different.) These two have such a complex love-hate relationship, I can't help but seeing them together. I used to search for pictures of cute kittens and puppies when I wanted to feel a warm, fuzzy feeling... now I get that from snarry! 

Lucius Malfoy - There is not much to say, except that he is a gorgeous, sexy bastard. Ah, my weakness for villains! I won't say that I like him - I'd very much enjoy punching him in the face, getting rid of that arrogant smirk of his - but that doesn't mean he isn't serious eye candy, or that I wouldn't get much pleasure from playing with his hair, twisting my fingers around it... In fact, I wouldn't even mind if he insulted me some, going on about me being a filthy Muggle, then grabbing me by the hair and kissing me by force...

Fanart - I have been SO impressed lately with the quality of fanart out there. I can't believe how many seriously talented people there are (which I certainly envy - I can barely draw stick men!), and I can only thank them for sharing these precious images with the rest of us.

Sweeney Todd (the movie) - What can I say? Love the songs, love the actors, love the visuals, love the sick and twisted plot. Tons of blood, gore, angst, revenge, evil! And Alan Rickman plays yet another villain, which is awesome! People having their throats slit, then being grinded and turned into meat pies - something that evil has never been so hot before. (Did I really say that?)


I'm alive

Just a quick note, for whoever might care, to say that I'm still alive. I'm almost 4 months in my new advertising job, it is great and I love it! There's nothing much new to say, and what there is (my house hunting misadventures!), I don't feel like writing about it now.

About the premiere of "300" in London

“This is nuts”, exclaimed Butler. “There’s a lot of people out there and they are all screaming. It’s amazing but it’s very stressful as well, because there’s thousands of people and you only sign about ten or fifteen autographs, but people are shouting, “I’ve come all the way from America!!” – it makes you feel like a bag of shit!”


POOR BABY!!! When we see him in Tart events, Gerry goes out of his way to give attention to every single person. Sometimes he has to be some place else right away, and just can’t; and sometimes he fights his own agent for a few minutes with his fans. Only someone as sweet & kind & considerate as him would feel horrible by having thousands of people shouting his name, rather than feeling proud & with a huge ego. 

This kind of reason is why I love Gerry so much, and will always be his Tart.

My only fear is that, from now on, it will be soooo much more difficult to get near him...


I saw "300" on the weekend. Obviously.

Gerry, as usual, outdid himself. There was nothing of him on King Leonidas... no hint of Gerryness. He's such a fantastic actor. It made me miss his sweetness.

Nothing could have prepared me for the heart-wrecking, saliva-forming amont of golden skinned muscle. Jesus Christ. I feel really sorry for Gerry for all the horrible training and sacrifice... but I can't say it isn't nice as hell to look at. ;-)

I am SO HAPPY that he's finally getting noticed in a larger scale. About time! I hope that movie makes many more millions - it will be impossible for the world to ignore Gerry then.

Strange fun

Anybody here plays with the stock market?


I always thought this would be hugely painful (like Math) and dull. But it’s actually as fun as gambling in Vegas – without the odds being with the house. :-)  I learnt about stocks about a year ago, and since I don’t have much money to invest, I keep buying and selling the same $1000 over and over, just for the fun of it. Sometimes I lose some, then get it back.


Today I’m happy, since all the prices are so low (comparatively) – I know they’ll be back to where they were in just a few days. I bought a couple of things. :-)

A bunch of great news

- I GOT A JOB!!!!!


After 6-7 months looking!!! [phew!]

I thought nobody in this city wanted me…

Now I’m in a cool little media company. Everybody seems to be very nice. I got to choose my cubicle, have my own computer (of course), printer (this is new to me!) and listen to this: a TV!!! With Dish Network and all! I find it hilarious that I can watch TV at work, but my boss reminded me why: we are in the TV business. She SHOULD know what’s going on.


My title: Junior Media Buyer. J   We negotiate & buy TV airtime across the US + Canada. Which means, you’re watching Oprah or the News or Judge Judy, and there’s the commercial break… we are the ones buying 30 or 60 seconds to air our ad.


- My Accutane treatment is completed. (Thank God!!!) It bothered me terribly on the last month. My lips are not only dry; they constantly bleed, peel in huge chunks, even got infected and make me look like I have some infectious disease. It’s embarrassing to show in public like that! (How did I get a job looking like that is beyond me.) My skin all over is very dry, and my arms keep getting red & rough (like an allergy). Any little scratch (let’s say, on my forehead) makes it bleed. Nose bleeds & always hurting. Is it any wonder that I’m so happy that it’s over? (Or rather, it’ll be over soon. It will take a few weeks to get back to normal.)


- I had my 3-hour Fashion Consultancy session. It was SO WORTH IT.  The girl and I went to 4 stores – where she had gone the day before to choose clothes for me & reserve them, no extra charge. So basically I tried the clothes on, she explained why she had chosen those for me (body type, skin color, fashion reasons, etc), and I made a ton of questions. I didn’t buy a single thing, since I had zero budget for clothes (not having worked for months!) but definitely liked the clothes and agreed with her advice. She is very nice too, and obviously loves what she does.


- I got my job a few days after the fashion consultancy, so it was time to run to the mall and do a much needed wardrobe update (a few pieces at least). J It was so much fun being able to shop for clothes after so long! And with the new knowledge gained, I had a much better idea of what I was looking for & what would look good on me, which made the process much easier, efficient and fun. I bought 1 pair of trousers, and several blouses/tops.


- I FINALLY got an Art Director to collaborate with!!! (Halleluiah!) My portfolio will finally start to exist (on paper, instead of my head). The guy’s also great to brainstorm new ads together, and we had good laughs coming up with silly stuff.


- Did I mention where I found my job? (It’s so unthinkable, I ignored it for so long.)


Who would have thought?

Oh, and there’s where I found my collaborator.

I’ll never look down at Craigslist again. 


- I went to Chopsticks Duel Piano Bar (or something like that). Tons of fun – except at 11pm or so, when they played 6-7 songs (in a row) that I’ve never heard before. Too expensive, though! Getting in is just $7, but then there’s food, drinks, tips for the players, parking… jeez… $100 easy.

I love this idea!!!

If you are sitting next to someone who irritates you on a plane or train....

1. Quietly and calmly open up your laptop case.
2. Remove your laptop.
3. Turn it on.
4. Make sure the guy who won't leave you alone can see the screen.
