There is a MeMe going around at the moment that quite frankly boggles the mind. It's a House Compatibility test, basically. It gives you a list of things and you mark the ones that pertain to you... however, I feel that the person that made this wasn't at all familiar with just how each house system works.

Here's a link to the MeMe that I filled out. Slytherin all the way.

Okay, so let me point out a few things with this test that I find ironic, out of place, or just generally unneeded.

Firstly, what's with the Muggle Sports? Even if muggle sports DID have a place in Harry Potter, what the hell makes you think that they would extend toward Slytherins? No self-respecting Slytherin would partake in a muggle past-time. Not because they're racist, no, because they're more "civilized."

Secondly, the music. I think it's pretty common knowledge that your taste in music doesn't reflect who you are.

Thirdly, and by far the most ridiculous.... The Slytherin side of things asks if you've ever thought about committing suicide. As teenagers I think that the thought has arisen for most of us, even if there was no weight behind it. However, a Slytherin is all about SELF-PRESERVATION. What makes you think Slytherin and Suicide go hand in hand? 
 
Now a few other things I felt were off-key for the MeMe:
 
 
Seriously Ridiculous )
 
 
Sooo, as you can see, while these might be things that people outside of Harry Potter looking in might relate to our fandom, it's just not so. 
 
 
[info]melusinahp  and I decided to make a new MeMe that isn't ridiculous like this. One that represents what each of the four houses represent not by looks, but by the inner-workings. As such, we're coming to our flists to help us dictate what's good for each list. So any contribution on the matter would be greatly appreciated. :D

 If anyone wants to play, leave me a comment and I'll choose a colour that reminds me of you, then you can list ten things you like in that colour or ten things that colour reminds you of. -Stolen from Tartlet.-  [livejournal.com profile] treacle_tartlet  gave me yellow. 


If there is one color I don't like, it's actually yellow, so this one is a tricksy one. But I'm sure I can do it!

Maybe.


Picture Spaaaam )


This took a lot of thought, and while it as some generic choices, I think some of them also say a bit about me. :) It was fun, Thanks for making me rethink yellow, Tartlet. <3

And this is why today is awesome. :)

So, if you haven't seen this already then you should be well and truly shamed! I jest, but seriously, this thing is kind of epic. And by kind of I mean seriously. 

It's been up for several hours now, but still has garnered over a THOUSAND comments. Yes, A THOUSAND!

Now tell me the HD fandom isn't mighty. Tell me it isn't great. Tell me it's a losing battle and that it'll never happen.

Clearly there are several of use that think it will and we'll take you on any time, any place.  The weapon of choice is Rock, paper, scissors, lizard, spock. And I have to warn you, we're DAMN good. 

There are several people that have deemed me worthy of some love and let me just tell you, I about squealed myself from all the comments I've received.

To those of you faceless lovelies that have shown me some love, THANK YOU SO MUCH!

I can't begin to express just how EXCITED I was. 

(Also, it's my mission to start a new trend. Squealing yourself is the new thing. I almost squealed myself. Don't make me squeal myself. Are you squealing yourself? And my favorite; I squealed my pants.)

Oh, by the way... THIS is why today is so FREAKIN' awesome.

Stolen from... a lot of people. 

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line (or first and second line if it's completely impossible) from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Strike out the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game post your own!

I’ve made a list of fifteen characters – the characters are from Harry Potter, Buffy, Merlin, Sailor Moon, and Avatar: The Last Airbender. You can ask any question you like about any of the numbers, alone or in conjunction with each other. I will then post the list of names, questions, and their answers.

:D Have fun.
