Harry/Draco fans going to Sectus 2007

duare
I can't believe it! Time has passed so fast! Yesterday Sectus started and tonight is the release of DH, I'm bouncing of excitation^^
My friends has left already to arrange our costumes for tonight, and I tyding up my room, but before go to Sectus I wanted to post this, even if it's a bit late.

Name: duare
Location:  London
Are you a writer, artist, or reader/viewer? (Or all of the above? Or something else?): Well, In my own language I’m a lazy writer, XDDD Really, I always have plots to write but I spend a lot of time doing nothing in the net or reading fics. Sometimes I draw a bit, but it isn’t my thing, and I have a lot of friends that are pretty good artist so it’s better if I only write. In English however, I’m more a lurker, I read a lot, I join all the Harry/Draco communities, and sometimes I post some comment on my favourite fics, but that’s all. Hopefully in few weeks or months I’ll start to write something in English...

If you are a writer or artist, provide a link to one of your Harry/Draco themed works: Eehhh… You can go to my journal and search the tag “my fics” and “arts”, and I also have some of my fics in www.fanfiction.net and www.slasheaven.com in the authors directory I’m listed as Duare.
What are some of your favorite Harry/Draco fics or authors? Depends of the day. If I have a bad day I will go to some of the lovely and funny Jennavere fics, if I need something hot and kink Calanthe is my poison. Something intense is what Lightning on the wave writes. And then I also love Emma Grant, Mijan (and I know that both of them are going to be at Sectus, so you can all figures how happy I’m am about that^^),  Charlote Caos, geoviki, Samayel, Silente auror, Furiosity, Constant vigilance, CDumbledore, and a lot of more authors that are really great.
What are some of your favorite pieces of Harry/Draco art or artists? Mmmm… Duckpuppy, red_hal, lizard and sherant were some of my first contact with the English artist fandom. Then I discovered hp_art_dayly and well, I fell in love with a lot of artist, some of they not Harry/Draco but id the characters are good I really don’t mind in they don’t draw H/D, like Calladan or ___</o:p>

Why does Harry/Draco appeal to you?:  I’ve always loved the slash on comics, books, films, etc. So when I read the HP books it was obvious that I will pick some slash pairing and well since Harry is the main character he was my first option, but whit who he will be paired? Not Ron, I really don’t like the best-friend-becomes-boyfriend relationship, and the adult/child relationships give me itches. But then there was Draco, blond, obnoxious, supposedly evil, the antagonism of the hero. And he has so many possibilities… If Harry Potter books were adult books I think that we would have a very different Draco, fuller of different aspects, more complete. He’s the archetypal antagonist that is evil at first, but it’s not really his fault but it’s what he knows and with time he will change his ideas. So I fell in love with them. Where Harry is dark, Draco is light, and where Harry is light, Draco is dark. They are opposites and at the same time they are so alike…

And well, if one gorgeous boy is great, two are better^^
When or how did you first become interested in Harry/Draco?: Mmmmm… When I started to read the HP books and to look on internet for fics I crossed with a web with a lot of fanfictions translated into Spanish, it was called “El dormitorio de Gryffindor” (the Gryffindor’s bedroom) and was dedicated to the pairing Harry/Draco. The main fic of all the archive was the marvellous Irresistible Poison by Rhyssen, and that was the beginning of all.

Tell us some of your non-fandom interests, hobbies, or activities

I like to read and write non fandom stories, but I have so little time and I’m so lazy… I love cinema, maybe I don’t go to cinema to watch movies all that usually, but I have a lot of films at my home in Barcelona (really, about 200 or more XDDD My mother and I are really fanatical about cinema, especially old movies). I enjoy comics and manga, I think that I read my first manga with 12 years old. I have a little (and not legal^^) company with some friend of mine morgana_avallon of budgets, postcards, calendars, bookmarks, etc. 11varas All hand made, and some with HP images. I have an honour degree in environmental science, I just finished it in February and since then I’ve been in London, working and practicing English meanwhile I wait to start a master next course in Barcelona. I am also planning in study history, it’s really  my real vocations, my real passion. I love ancient and medieval history (and I spend a lot of time thinking about magic on those times). I’m a very active person, I can’t stay without do a lot o plans and projects, like editing a yaoi/slash fanzine about Harry Potter for the next Salón del Manga (a manga convention that every year is hosted in Hospitalet del LLobregat, just next my city). And finally, I love to travel, I spend all my paid to go to other countries and cities, the last trip before come to London, was to Prague, so beautiful.

 

Well, that’s all.

 

See you all later^^

Today I'm going to be the Ravenclaw girl with a Harry/Draco t-shirt (no the "official", just one that I made years ago with an art of Giro, a Catalan artist)

Is anyone already here? [Jul. 16th, 2007|09:42 pm]
Harry/Draco fans going to Sectus 2007

mijan

I'm already in the area with <lj user="kriken">, and maybe it would be nice to see who else is already here amongst the H/D shippers, meet up, and just do some of the walking tours and stuff together.  Random evening at the pub?

I'm staying at Astor Court Hotel, at 20 Hallam St.  It's quite close to the convention main venue.  There's a pub barely 20 feet from the door of our hotel called the Stag's Head.  (It's got Prongs above the door!  Merlin's beard, I'm a geek.).  Anyway, it might be fun to meet up there.  The internet costs are really high at our hotel, so I won't be online much, but if anyone possibly wants to meet up, either feel free to call Astor Court or stop by the hotel.  I'll tell the service desk person that I'm expecting people to be asking for me.  Ask for "Michelle and Kristen for the Sectus H/D group".  I'll tell the service person precisely that, so she'll know that you're asking for me.  (Sorry, but it really wouldn't make good sense to leave full surnames here, yes?)

They can call us up at our room, or you can leave us a message down there.  I'd just really think it would be fun for those of us who are already here to get the party started!

Tonight, I am Teh Tired, and I'm going to fall dead asleep as soon as I get back to the hotel room... but maybe tomorrow night after Wicked?  Is anyone else from this group going to see that?

Anyhow... hope to see you all soon!  Thursday at the latest!

Not-so-quick hello (late as usual) [Jul. 13th, 2007|11:14 pm]

Name:  I'll answer to Kit or Cheryl (pronounced Sheryl because my mother was awkward like that)

Location: About an hour north of London.

Are you a writer, artist, or reader/viewer? (Or all of the above? Or something else?) Reader and Writer

If you are a writer or artist, provide a link to one of your Harry/Draco themed works: Finding Harry

What are some of your favorite Harry/Draco fics or authors? Favourite authors include every single writer on my flist (I got very lucky!) as well as Closet_bound, Emma Grant, Jennavere, Marcasita, Charlottesometimes, profmckitten, C Dumbledore, Azhure, Azrael and so, so many more. (I really hope I managed to spell everyone's name correctly - it's gone midnight and I'm half cut so I'm not that hopeful:p)

What are some of your favorite pieces of Harry/Draco art or artists? lizardspots and ponderosa spring to mind, there are loads more but names escape me at the moment!

Why does Harry/Draco appeal to you? The conflict mostly. The potential for passionate hate!sex and angsty-ness that is there just based around their characters *is a firm believer in the course of true love - if it exists - not running smoothly* They also make great crack!fic fodder.

When or how did you first become interested in Harry/Draco? For that you can blame alisanne and calico_jynx. They fed me fic's and I've never looked back. You can also hold them responsible for encouraging me to write I think :)

Tell us some of your non-fandom interests, hobbies, or activities:

Reading in general, mostly sci-fi, horror and comedy. I'm a complete audiophile (metal, rock, goth, singer-songwriters, anything but pop music really), I also love films (indie, sci-fi, fantasy, comedy and biographys), anime (Hajime no ippo, DN Angel, Akira, Bleach and Ghost in the shell at present), glittery make-up and tattoo's (although I only have two thus far).

 I'm a big fan of lazy sundays spent with friends in a pub (these are usually following a mad saturday night out). I like travelling and site-seeing.

Erm...I once drove a fire engine and I've spent a night in a supposedly haunted museum  :D (not both at the same time. Obviously) so I guess fun-but-slightly-odd-things-in-aid-of-charity.


Looking forward to seeing/meeting everyone at Sectus! *is worried but excited none-the-less*

A Note Re: Thursday Slashers' Picnic [Jul. 11th, 2007|11:58 pm]
Harry/Draco fans going to Sectus 2007

r_grayjoy
The slashers' picnic in the park begins at noon. If you can't be there at noon (due to hotel check in, etc.), don't worry! I expect we'll be there for a while. I'll stay until at least 3:00, so later arrivals are welcome! Come and go as you please.

Once again, we're meeting at noon near the south (York Bridge) entrance of Regent's Park. We might migrate to a more ideal location once a good number of people are there -- I've been told the bandstand area by the boating lake is nice. So if you come later and don't see us at the entrance, look for us there.

Also! My hair dye came in the mail, so I can announce this now... For ease of identification, I will have green hair at Sectus! (Slytherin pride, you know...) When in doubt as to the location of the meetups, just look for green hair. ;)

Are you a writer, artist, or reader/viewer? (Or all of the above? Or something else?) Reader/Viewer. Though I have written an H/D drabble or two.
If you are a writer or artist, provide a link to one of your Harry/Draco themed works: Too little to link.
What are some of your favorite Harry/Draco fics or authors? Bond by Anna Fugazzi, If You've a Ready Mind by Mistful, Transfigurations by Resonant, and The Saving Connor Series by Lighting on the Wave.
What are some of your favorite pieces of Harry/Draco art or artists? I love lillithium's style, her H/D comics are IMO the perfect blend of art and word for the H/D pairing. red_rahl's H/D chibis are totally adorable. I also love anything by glockgal and lizardspots (though their Harry's and Draco's are funky(and by that I mean good.))
Why does Harry/Draco appeal to you? I think as individuals they present such extremes (not only in physical features with the whole light/dark thing, but also in personal beliefs.) They're such opposites, that to me, they're a very intriguing pair and half the enjoyment I get from H/D fics, is seeing how the author can bring them together and make them make sense.
When or how did you first become interested in Harry/Draco? The awesome best_of_five rec'd me some H/D in exchange for me recing her some Remus/Sirius(which is my OTP.) Most of her rec's are included in my fave fics above.
Tell us some of your non-fandom interests, hobbies, or activities: I'm a designer and writer. I love drawing, writing, music, tennis(though I'm rusty), anime and mange, especially yaoi and shonen.

What are some of your favorite pieces of Harry/Draco art or artists? I saved most of my fav h/d art to my computer in fear of the LJ strikethrough when it all happened, so the only one i have left to link to is this one on Lj, and this and this one on deviant art.

Why does Harry/Draco appeal to you? What doesn't appeal? Love, hate, hotness, hidden emotions, denial, lust, Draco smirk (tm), oblivious!Harry (tm) the list could contonue on and on...

When or how did you first become interested in Harry/Draco? I believe it was a fic called Fire & Ice back in 2001, but i didn't know about "fandom" back then and I lost interest in HP in general.  But when I discovered fandom I came back with avengence in 2004.

I really should have done this a while ago, but why not do it now.

Name:
Melanie, but I'm generally called Mel, Melly or Melleh

Location:
Adelaide, South Australia.

Are you a writer, artist, or reader/viewer? (Or all of the above? Or something else?)
I am a sometimes writer, and reader. I haven't really had time for fandom lately which is sad, but I have been reading quite a bit on my days off.

my H/D fic tag

What are some of your favorite Harry/Draco fics or authors?
most of my favourite fics are located here but that hasn't been updated recently.
As for authors, it'd probably be emmagrant01 and furiosity. I can read their stuff over and over for days.

What are some of your favorite pieces of Harry/Draco art or artists?
red_rahl, sherant, glockgal are all pretty darn awesome artists.

Why does Harry/Draco appeal to you?
For me it seems natural, there's so much potential between them for any type of relationship.

When or how did you first become interested in Harry/Draco?
It was a couple of years ago and I read Irresistible Poison and it just felt right.

Tell us some of your non-fandom interests, hobbies, or activities:
Lets see: Music, Coffee, reading, traveling, tv-shows that makes me squee (torchwood, queer as folk, charmed, supernatural, buffy/angel).

Not to mentioning having meals with my friends, doing generally silly things and having fun.
