Any way, it is now precisely 2 months until the next Harry Potter book is out. Again, there is mondo excitement, and I have decided I cannot be any more of a fangirl - seriously, this is my Year of Fandom Wonderfulness or something.
In honour of this occasion, I have decided to inform the world about a rather amusing LJ community - or user, rather - that I have recently stumbled across. As some people may have noticed, I love all those badfic mockery things - I find them too funny for words. Well here's one with a difference: deu_sex_machina.
This happens to be the home of some utterly hysterical fic MSTs, starring the (canon) HP trio, and assorted other cameo roles. It also happens to be the funniest thing ever. Not only does it give a good sporking to fic, but the fics and authors they have chosen are not the typical Mary-Sue ff.net badfic rubbish. Oh No. Here, they spork the BNF (Big Name Fans), with fics like Pawn to Queen, and authors like Aja, and *gasp* Cassie Claire getting a well deserved thrashing.
I almost died laughing.
Some of the better quotes include:
Harry: On the eighth day, God created stupidity.
Ron: NORMAL RELATIONSHIP?!?! Normal relationship? What the hell is this, some sleazy Muggle telly vision show?
Hermione: The image of Malfoy pressing a hand to his forehead is absolutely priceless. It does seem like he's suddenly taken on a soap star persona.
Harry: Stay tuned to Days of Our Canon Rape.
Harry: Lost: One copy of Faith in Humanity. Contact H.J. Potter if found.
Harry: WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT, ABSENCE MAKES THE HEART GROW GAYER.
Oh, and I just noticed, but there is a guy in my Programming tute that looks just like Harry Potter - or Daniel Radcliffe at least. Rather unnerving, actually.
