Era: Hogwarts 8th year

Summary: Eighth year was supposed to be calm. Moderated. Peaceful, even. Draco returned to escape the chaos wrought upon his shambles of a life and Harry to flee the responsibility of a world that sees him as something greater than was truly possible. Hogwarts was a safe haven, right? At least it was until Hagrid comes up with the wonderful idea to introduce some additional members to the student body of the fluffier variety. Hagrid doesn’t do moderated - where’s the fun in that?

Comment: What a wonderful, wonderful fic! I stumbled upon it in my quest to read something long, not too depressing and/or hard to deal with, and with a bit of Hogwarts in it, as it’s been a while since I read anything other than Post-War fics. The summary alone immediately grabbed my attention and I’m so glad I decided to embark on the journey this story has to offer, because I loved it. Harry and Draco are back at school for their last year and so fresh after the war, everything feels a bit uncertain. We see them trying to navigate through a world without Voldemort, and it’s gorgeous, how you can feel everything the characters experience, thanks to the writing style radiating such a perfect amount of melancholy mixed with a tiny bit of hope for what the future holds. I particularly liked the struggles Draco faces when it comes to himself and what he knows of his personality, how he’s becoming a better person without completely losing the traits that define him the most. Basically (I always tend to ramble on and on, sorry), this fic tells the story of Harry bonding with an animal—the fluffiest, cutest, most adorable one ever, I swear—who then bonds with Draco. It’s truly amazing, seeing them gradually getting closer through their “parenting”—because of course they do. Honestly, if you didn’t know what to read next and found this post, search no further, here’s your fic.

you know, when mighty no. 9 came out people were eager to compare the graphics to yooka-laylee and wonder why mn9 didn’t look as nice. and at the time i thought part of it was just that the playtonic guys had a lot more experience with hd 3d graphics, having worked on viva pinata and nuts and bolts and all that. and also, a huge portion of the budget for mn9 got eaten up by big stretch goals like ports to a ridiculous range of consoles (almost all of which were done in-house rather than being handled by the publisher) and the online race mode and stuff like that

and while those are definitely big factors, now that yooka laylee’s out i think i’ve figured out the other part of the story, which is: yooka laylee only has five levels


I got to see Akira on the big screen in HD surround-sound (the SCAD theater did a special showing of it!!) and let me tell you, I’m never going to have an experience like that ever again in my life.

I had chills the entire time. It was the first time I ever watched the whole thing all the way through, and it’s definitely one of my top three favorite movies I’ve ever seen.

Before the film started someone from the theater asked the gathered audience how many of us had seen Akira before, and there were only a handful who raised their hands. There was something really cool about being in a packed theater with hundreds of people who had never seen it before, all experiencing it in that way together? It was cool laughing and gasping and hearing everyone’s genuine, invested reactions to this film.

If you ever get the chance to see Akira in a theater - take it and never let go. That was one of the coolest experiences I’ve ever had.


Colorado in Autumn. If you need anything other than that to describe this video I’ll let the original filmmaker say it.

For the 8 years I’ve lived in Colorado, I’ve been most enthralled by the short but incredible fall foliage season in the high country. I’ve experienced the magnificent autumn colors of the East Coast and Midwest, but nothing for me has compared to the scenes of massive mountains rising from stunning forests of gold-covered aspens. For the past 5 years of filming, I’ve had this moment in my head, a finished time-lapse piece that turns Colorado’s extraordinary fall landscapes into living art. Some years I only came away with a couple good sequences, others a lot more, and finally after this season I felt I had the work I needed to produce my vision. Please enjoy this short film that embodies everything I love about my state.

Does your Cintiq 13 hd work? Because mine doesn't work either... not even the pen and the controls. When I went to their website they said they were having an issue or an update. So I was wondering if I wasn't the only one... (:T

Uhm… no ? I mean, my cintiq work just fine ? You can easily find the most recent driver on their site and stuff. I never had any issue with mine… they’re SHIT to install but once it’s done it’s all good.

So I’ve now re-watched the first two seasons of Buffy in HD on Netflix.

They fixed a lot, but not all, of the problems plaguing the initial HD EPIX transfers. The biggest disadvantage I’ve seen so far has not been the cropping (which is very obvious in a lot of S1 scenes, but I only recognized it in one S2 scene, I’d say 85% - 90% of the scenes are definitely showing more information than the original 4x3 ratio instead of cropping it to fit the new 16x9 one), nor even the fact a lot of the effects have been upscaled from SD instead of re-done in HD (the Blu-Ray release of Firefly had the same issue. I get it. It costs a lot of money to re-do CGI in HD - more so than to do them in SD in the first place. It’s distracting, but not to the point it killed my enjoyment). It’s not even the fact that some episodes have aged really, really badly. This will forever be my favorite TV show of all times, even if I’ve seen others which I consider objectively better.

No, the biggest killjoy of all is that: you know how you could tell from the DVD’s when they replaced Sarah Michelle Gellar and David Boreanaz for their stunt doubles in the fight scenes? Well, in clear 1080p (or 1080i, I don’t know what Netflix is working with, but I would guess 1080p), it is REALLY blatant. Forget about how Buffy’s body type completely changed when you were watching it on DVD, now you can see the stunt doubles’s faces and it almost feels surreal.

On to S3. I hear Netflix took Buffy out internationally, but it’s still on Netflix Brazil, so I am watching EVERYTHING before they take it from me too.


I tried to upload those videos on Youtube but YG was quite to block them every f*cking time. So the only option I found was Google Drive, I hope it will be ok.
I’m really sorry for the shitty subtitles (they don’t stay long enough sometimes ughh -.-’). I really did my best, enjoy guys :s

Making Gifs from Netflix Videos

For Macs Only!

Sadly, this tutorial only works for macs, from what I can find. However, I would still read as a PC user, as you might be able to find a comparable program to the Quicktime version found on Macs. PC version of Quicktime does not have the proper feature in order to do this tutorial. It doesn’t need to be Netflix, it can also work for any online based HD streams, like Hulu, Amazon Prime, Google Play, and HBO Go – I used Netflix because it’s what I had. This method is actually super easy once you get the hang of it, and saves time/space compared to looking for and downloading films/tv shows.

For this tutorial, you will need:

  • Photoshop
  • Quicktime
  • Your choice of online video (Netflix in this case)

We will be making gifs like these, which were taken directly from Netflix, from the film Copenhagen

New Who’s Female Companions & Their Titles

I loved the trailer, but I had to watch it a couple times to really grasp what was going on. Like I missed Kylo's smashed helmet the first time around. :) I really wish we got to see more Kylo though!

Yea actually I was a little surprised at the lack of Finn and Kylo tbh. Although we did get awesome bts of both characters!! I feel like both characters will be in TLJ more than TFA. Which speaking of the bts photos there was also a photo of Kylo where he had more yellow sith like eyes and I think that is for sure gonna be an interesting path for his character. I wish the photo was released in HD though :/ I only saw it in true HD and super clear and huge at the panel

I’m Always Going To Be Your Baby.

A/N: This is just a little something to put out there… not sure if I want to make this a series or not since Human!Impala has some stuff out there. So yeah, I don’t know just let me know what y’all think! GIF is not mine. So I guess Part 1? Or Intro? Lol 

Dean slammed his bags onto the table as we entered the bunker. Sam  hesitantly followed him as he stormed into the kitchen and grabbed a couple beers.

“I swear to god if I find that witch, I am going to put a bullet straight through her head for taking Baby,” he seethed, ears red and hands shaking as he twisted the cap off and took a swig. Sam didn’t know what to say. He knew how much that car meant to Dean, how much it meant to their family, or at least what was left of it. It was their signature. Wherever that sleek black ‘67 Impala was, the Winchesters were surely there. It was their home before they had the bunker, it was their safety. Baby had been there through it all with the Winchester boys, since the very beginning of their family business. She was there when Dean went to hell, when Sam tried to change it up with high tech that just didn’t suit the classic rock aesthetic that came with the car, it was there when Sam went into the cage, when Dean covered her up and set aside the hunting life because of the promise he made to his brother. Baby was there through it all, and now she was gone because of some witch who thought it would be funny to take their most prized possession.

“Look Dean, we’ll find Baby alright? But it’s not gonna do you any good to have all this pent up anger, I’m gonna get some shut eye and then first thing tomorrow morning, we’ll start looking okay?” Sam asked, his sore muscles screaming in protest at the thought of having to get up early after a hunt that surely tested their limits. Dean absentmindedly nodded, grabbing a sandwich that they had grabbed on the way back to the bunker, he slowly retreated to his room, feeling as if a piece of himself was missing.

                                                 *       *       *

Tears welled in my eyes as I saw the entrance of the bunker, of home. Dressed in black leather tights, a black tank and some black booties, I was in no condition to walk anymore than I had. Everything was so different when having two legs, and long black hair. Had I been in my original form, it would have only taken me a couple hours to reach the bunker rather than 9. After ganking the witch that turned me, I knew I had to go back home and find the Winchesters, find Dean. It was unusually cold outside, the ground hard with frost and ice. My tan skin paled as the weather made everything numb, made my lips blue underneath what was left of my smeared red lipstick. I grabbed the key from my pocket, the one Dean had lost underneath the backseat many months ago, and opened the door to the bunker, nearly sobbing at the warmth of inside. It was only 5 in the morning. Sam wouldn’t be up for another hour, and Dean… well it would be forever until he woke up. How was I going to explain this to the boys? That I was Dean’s beloved car and had escaped and killed the witch who whooped their asses and turned me into a …human girl. I gripped my side where the witch had stabbed me, the bruises on my side seemed to worsen with each step I took. I had obviously never been inside the bunker, and couldn’t help but marvel at how…home it truly did feel. Hell, if I liked the garage, I was in love with the inside. I dragged myself down the stairs, reaching a long wooden table where books were laid out. A groan escaped my lips as I finally looked down to see the damage of the wound. It seemed pretty deep, and blood had yet to stop leaking from it. Anymore and I was sure to faint or something. I needed help fast but I had no idea what to do or where to go.

“You have 10 seconds to tell me who the hell are you and how the hell you got in here,” A familiar voice demanded from behind me. I felt the coldness of a gun press against the side of my head but all I could do was let a strangled sigh of relief.

“Dean, oh my… thank fuck,” I let out in relief, but as a tried to turn around to face him, the gun was pressed even further into my temple, making me wince. This idiot was gonna leave a bruise on my face.

“Who. Are. You?”

 I let out a shaky laugh, knowing this was going to be interesting.

“Okay, hey injured over here, hotshot. Ease it up on the gun. You’re gonna think I’m insane,” I waited for him to say something, but I was met with silence. Dean Winchester you stubborn asshole. “It’s me…Baby, The Impala.” I let out quietly. Immediately I could hear his breathing stop. A whimper escaped my lips as the pain from my wound increased.

“You’re kidding right? What sick joke is this?” he demanded before yelling Sam’s name, his rough voice echoing around the bunker. Sam quickly came into what I assumed was the Dining room. His eyes widened as he glanced at me, taking in my hurt state.

“Dean? What the hell? She’s hurt?” the youngest Winchester asked in disbelief. He quickly knelt in front of me, lifting my hands only to see that the wound was much worse than he predicted.

“Sa-Sam. Sam. Sam!” Dean tried to get the attention of his brother, but Sam had already went to retrieve supplies in order to stitch me up. “Don’t move,” he ordered from behind me. I scoffed, as if I was able to move anywhere, or even want to. It slightly hurt that Dean didn’t believe me, but it made since. I mean a random chick shows up to your home telling you you’re his car? Yeah I wouldn’t think that will go so well. Both Winchester’s came jogging back, Sam looking less inclined to help me out. It was Dean though, that made my heart stop. He was even more gorgeous than I had thought. It was different when I was a car, only being able to see certain things and having to rely on different senses. But now, everything was in HD and Dean, with his forest green eyes, and his tall stature, I was so thankful for having already been sitting down or else I surely would have melted on to the floor. Dean stood in front of me, as if unable to form sentences, I was sure it was because of my wound, that seemed to make all three of us uneasy. Where the hell was Castiel? Surely he would be able to heal me no problem?

“Hey boys, um, not to be a bitch of anything but I’m not a huge fan of whisky and dental floss, having watched you two perform surgery on yourselves numerous times, so is there any way Castiel could come down here?” I shakily smiled.

“Hold up did you just… nevermind. Castiel is currently MIA, I’m sorry but we’re gonna have to close that wound up,” Sam smiled sympathetically, I groaned in annoyance at the angel before ripping the whiskey bottle out of Dean’s hand, taking a long chug from it before handing it to Sam, giving him the go to stitch me up….
