Guest Post: Mark (of Mark Reads series)


It's been a while since I contributed to a LiveJournal community and I'm happy for my return to be in this community specifically. There are few places around the web who have supported me on my journey quite like you all here in hp_commonroom. So it would be rude of me to do this and not acknowledge how much you mean to me.

Thank you.

Thank you for the comments, the jokes, the AMAZING chat I participated in, the images, the macros, and for showing me how wonderful the world of Harry Potter can be. It means the world to me.

I pondered for a while about what on earth I would do for this post besides just say HELLO HOW ARE YOU and THAT'S ALL, because who cares about that? So, since I've resurrected my LiveJournal, I'd like to add some people as friends and get to know you at the same time, so let's do this first.
To be completed by everyone because I said so.

1) What is your name?
2) What is your quest?
3) Where are you from?
4) When did you first discover Harry Potter?
5) Who is your single favorite HP character? And yes, you have to pick one.
6) What's your favorite band/musical artist?
7) Why? (Bonus points for answering: Why not???)
8) ??????

So let's move on to some fun. As a way to actually thank you, I thought I'd let you in on some secrets and stories behind my experience reviewing the HP series that I have never shared publicly. It's like I'm giving you guys exclusive news or something because WHO DOESN'T LIKE THAT. Ok, a lot of people BUT WHATEVER.

I like lists (SURPRISE), so that's what you get.

1) I had planned a massive video review with Kasper but became self conscious of doing it after the end of chapter 31. I did not expect so much sad and I didn't want to cry on video. OK SO STOP JUDGING.
2) I'm looking through the archive and I can't figure out which review it was, but I wrote half of a review entirely in the format of an AIM chat. I also cannot remember why I stopped it.
3) I believed Lupin was actually gay until the reveal in Half-Blood Prince.
4) cleolinda  and I will be joining forces for something special in the very near future.
5) My super secret.....secret is two-fold. I actually have two things to reveal to everyone and I'll give you guys a clue for each one. Secret A: airplane. Secret B: my email address.
6) I hope I don't jinx myself, but I'd like to throw this out there now so that I can get support for it if I decide to pitch it, but I am going to go to LeakyCon next year and, ideally, host a panel. Which is a terrifying concept, but yeah. WOULD YOU COME TO LEAKYCON TO SEE ME SPEAK AWKWARDLY ABOUT HARRY POTTER.

Wow, you guys got almost all the good stuff. SO. NOW IS THE TIME TO DISCUSS.
