I love similarities between Hermione Granger and Leigh Cabot...



I love similarities between Hermione Granger and Leigh Cabot from Christine. They have thick brown hair, studious and ultimately fall in love with the hero’s best friend. Also their actresses(Emma Watson and Alexandra Paul) had crushes on the actors who played the heroes’ bullies (Tom Felton and William Ostrander) and are animal activists.

harrypotterconfessions:

OKAY SO I HAVE SOME BRACELETS

but i don’t have an Etsy or Ebay or anything. so this is what we’re gonna do:
~ you send me an email or DM and tell me what bracelet(s) you want.
~ i send you my paypal info. you send me money and a place to mail it to.
~ you receive lovely handmade goods with a holiday card!

now i shall explain my goods:
*flourishes hands at merch while chintzy game show music plays* these lovely hand-knotted friendship bracelets are an excellent holiday gift! presented in those classic Hogwarts house scarf colors in two different patterns (the solid stripes from the first films, and the double-stripe from the later films) they would make a grand addition to any Potterhead’s collection! made by ~yours truly~ with high-quality cotton embroidery floss! offered at the reasonable price of $7.00usd each, this includes all shipping charges!

$7.00 for hand-made crafts!

but wait, there’s more! for an additional three dollars (for a total price of $10), you get a BONUS BRACELET, one of the ones featured in the lower photo. give me your favorite colors and i will do my best to accommodate your request!

the bracelets are an overall length of 12.5 inches (almost 32cm), with the patterned sections about 5in and the braided end-ties are about 4in on each end, for ease of tying. this should fit most people!

TL;DR

send me a message, either here or email taigastar@gmail.com. tell me what you want (what house, single-stripe or double-stripe… also, if choosing Ravenclaw, pick book-color or movie-color!) (oh, and what second bracelet you’d like if you’re ordering a bonus. no, i can’t give you another Hogwarts bracelet as a bonus, because i need to get rid of these other bracelets! and for $3, they’re a great price!) i will send you my paypal info. you send payment and an address i can mail to, and you will receive wondrous bracelets!

thank you for your consideration,

~Taiga

*stops playing game show music*

Shared Text: Church Fund Raising Pitch

Shared Text: Church Fund Raising Pitch


If Brandon Vogt’s CatholicHogwarts.com and call for a ‘Catholic Dumbledore’s Army were not sufficient evidence that we have entered a new era in the Potter Wars (or have been in one for several years), an Episcopal Church in Cumberland, Rhode Island, will be using Harry Potter to raise church pledges this year.

The [Emmanuel Church] campaign will begin with a celebratory dinner to announce the theme and prizes. Parishioners will be divided into four groups, to represent the four houses at the Hogwarts School of the books and movies. [The Rev Joan] Testin and a church member who normally tracks pledges are creating the teams to have a balance of current pledgers and nonpledgers.

“We’re planning to serve some of the foods talked about in the books — such as treacle tarts and knickerbocker glories (traditional British desserts),” she noted. “One of our members also is researching a way for us to play Quidditch (magical competitive sport involving flying contestants).”…

The campaign will use competition to build involvement. The team with the most pledging members will win “the house cup” (given at Hogwarts at the end of the school year to the house with the most points), which will be awarded at a mid-November celebration….

As the campaign goes on, progress will be tracked using big charts on the back of the wall in Emmanuel’s worship space. Big sequins will be used to add jewels to a cup each time someone pledges.

When a “banned book” that is supposedly the “Gateway to the Occult,” is used to secure pledges from a church congregation, I think we’re in the “clean-up” operations stage of the conflict.

Or is the ECUSA so liberal and in-step with the world that this pledge drive theme represents, at least to those convinced the Hogwarts Saga is anything but edifying reading, only a token of how far adrift from orthodox faith the Anglican Communion is in the United States? Does anyone know of evidence that more rigorous Christian communities and inspired individuals are still keeping the flame of resistance to the Wizarding World alive and alit today?

Jessie Cave Discusses Creating & Publishing Comedy Show ‘Sunrise’ – On U.K. Tour This Year!

IMG_9777


Potter fans will remember Jessie Cave as bold Gryffindor, Lavender Brown, but since the films ended, Jessie has been hard at work putting the talent we saw in her portrayal of slightly tragic teen Lavender Brown into a career in stand-up comedy, and publishing all-too-relatable illustrations about being a woman, motherhood, dating and the trials of life. Her latest show, Sunrise, premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, showed at London’s Soho Theatre, and is now published (in full colour!) by Nick Hern Books. We spoke to her exclusively to discuss her experience creating the comedy show, and designing the book for publication.

IMG_9777

Jessie wrote a first draft of Sunrise in a hotel room, whilst on a four-day-long break from looking after her two children. “I can have secrets too.” Jessie says as she introduces Sunrise, and yet the play is raw, full of honesty and (over)sharing, coming directly from her experiences of heartbreak, adulthood and learning to pick up the pieces. Inspiring (and sometimes face-palm worthy) anecdotes about being a working mother, Jessie’s hilarious tales make Sunrise a joy to read: pursuing a private place with her partner whilst attending a Potter convention as a special guest, relatable stories of first dates and various lessons in love. At just 70 pages long, it’s practically impossible not to binge this in one sitting. You’ll find yourself tabbing pages to come back to, sending passages to friends with the caption ‘relatable content’ and admiring the illustrations accompanying pretty much every single page.

Thought the show, one person is elected to yell ‘You go, girl!’ to Jessie whenever they’re motioned to do so (these points are noted with doodles throughout the book), and Jessie tells us this interactive element was new for the Sunrise show:

Q: Your show is great at involving the audience (I wouldn’t mind being the elected ‘You go, girl!’ person!) – have you ever had any particularly memorable experiences with audience members getting more involved than you’d expected at your shows? 

A: I actually do my best to not involve the audience! Sunrise was the first time and I don’t think I’ll be doing it again… it’s just too risky. I haven’t had any really shocking moments with audience members – except the time I thought someone had two lightsabers under their seat but actually they were light-up umbrellas.

At one point Jessie describes a mentoring session at the London Eye, experiencing feelings of being ‘inadequate’ in her multicolour anorak and pigtails. Her quirkiness and ability to live honestly is what makes Jessie a force to be reckoned with in the stand-up world, and nowhere is this more evident than in the quirky and colorful presentation of Sunrise. She tells us what her hopes are for the future, and shares her love of Chris Riddell:

Q: You’re such a creative spirit and it’s incredible to see how hard you work – do you have any plans or hopes for the future?

A: Yes! I want to do lots more writing and am in development for TV. I also want to create work which my children can read one day. I’m a massive fan of Chris Riddell who is an illustrator and writer of such an amazing body of extremely imaginative work – including the illustrations for The Beadle and The Bard (!) – and I would love to have as varied a career as him. 

We’re no stranger to Jessie’s doodles (which she regularly posts to social media), and doodles in Sunrise help bring her stories to life – full-size illustrations are even offered alongside the play to those purchasing a copy of the book:

Jessie told us more about choosing doodles to include:

Q: Were you tempted to add anything extra into the book for Sunrise? Did you already have doodles in mind?

A: The footnotes were a brilliant way of getting more context and information into my stories. I was so happy my publisher Nick Hern Books let me do them. 

Q: Which is your personal favourite of all the doodles? 

A: The ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ doodle.

IMG_0329

There are a few mentions of Harry Potter throughout Sunrise, and one doodle of her in Paris for the aforementioned Potter convention. We wanted to know more about her experience of fan culture, and her thoughts on Lavender as a character:

Q: Your story about *that* Potter convention is hilarious, and super real – we know fans appreciate you taking time away to meet them, but it must be crazy! Do you get many fans who let you know how much you’ve inspired them by being honest about the trials of parenthood (and life in general)? Do you have any memory of an experience meeting a Potter fan which really stood out to you? 

A: I once met a young mother who had two children and she was away from them at the convention as a treat to herself, for a weekend away. I realised then that Harry Potter is not just a thing for young adults, teenagers and children – it’s an escape for parents too and unleashes and acquaints us with our inner child. 

IMG_9819

Q: You played Lavender Brown so brilliantly, but as somebody who puts out such an affirming, independently-minded view of women, did you ever want to see what she was like AFTER her relationship with Ron? We see glimpses of her in the Battle of Hogwarts – assuming she survived her attack, where would you have wanted to take her? (We could totally see – and would 100% welcome  – Lavender Brown starting a comedy show at The Leaky Cauldron!) 

A: I sometimes like to imagine what Lavender Brown would be like at dating in her 20’s – going on bad Tinder dates and having flings with failing musicians or wizards…

Well, we’d definitely read it!

Jessie is about to embark upon a U.K. tour of Sunrise, so be sure to pick up a copy of the book before the shows start! The show made it onto The Evening Standard’s list of Best London Comedy Shows of 2018, so get in there quick! The tour will start Sunday 24th February, and run through to Thursday 21st March 2019. Jessie spoke to us about her excitement, and how personal the set is to her: 

Q: The Sunrise set had so many elements – is there anything particular on stage people should look out for when you’re on tour?

A: The ‘cage’ I use as part of the set is one of the actual ones I sleep in with my children. I find it really comforting having it there on stage, decorated with the same blankets we use at home. 


Q:  Which stop are you most excited for on tour? 

A: Manchester as I (very briefly) went to university there… And also Edinburgh because I’ve never performed there when it’s not the Festival.

 

 

Tickets for Jessie’s U.K. Sunrise tour in 2019 are now available at Soho Theatre’s official website Order a copy of Sunrise at the Nick Hern Books website to get a free exclusive set of three postcards, designed by Jessie and featured in the book!

Thanks to Nick Hern Books for providing a copy of ‘Sunrise’ for review purposes, and Jessie for a lovely interview and plenty of laughs!
