Thoughts concerning PoA...  

- They do spell 'Moony' wrong. Bastards.

- Stroking the spine of The Monster Book of Monsters is definitely representative of something sexual. I'm just not sure what. (Also, that book is so cute! The little burbling noises it makes! Awww!)

- "Hellooooo..." Remus is so adorable. Sososo. OMG, squee, we wantssss it, precioussssss. Angst and little smiles and mustache and scars and Lily lovin' all.

- During the boggart scene, Remus is eating an apple. It's red. During the Buckbeak scene, Draco eats an apple. It is green. Somebody likes apples. Or Biblical symbolism? Maybe just apples.

- "You and your bloody chicken." Very, very funny line.

- "Turn out your pockets." ... what hasss it got in itsss pocketsesss?

- I got the feeling this time around that Remus wasn't particularly keen on Hermione. Is that my imagination? When she gives an answer during the boggart lesson, he is somewhat curt and cuts her off sort of prematurely. Then there's the "brightest witch of your age" line that Thewlis delivers so bitterly. (Brilliant! Whee!) Okay, maybe that isn't quite enough to go on, but it's shattered any chance of me taking Remus/Hermione fic seriously.

- Remus bouncing in the Shrieking Shack, when Snape is being threatening. It's like, "Please don't kill us or do anything stupid, mmkay?" But he bounces. Obsequious bouncing? Haha, it's so cute.

- Sirius is so batshit crazy at first... I like that better than "I'm really a nice person, really!" Godfather Sirius. Um, noooooo.

- Snape does say that you can be born a werewolf... it's difficult to hear, as we're a) meant to be concentrating on Draco's note and b) it floats over the segue from classroom to Quidditch. But it's there.

Finally...

- OMG, Remus and Harry totally act like two kids with a crush on each other. The sweet little exchanged smiles throughout, on the train, the bridge, in the woods, in class... the chocolate after sex ... the Patronus lesson, which most definitely has a vast array of sexual undertones (dude, mood lighting) and is the only scene in which Remus actually touches Harry (I'm pretty sure) ... the Marauder's Map scene, in which Remus is clearly so angry and the tension is so there but restrained and beautiful (and Harry in his pajamas, you know you just want to take him to bed with you) ... and then the angst-filled scene as Remus leaves.

Yes. Their little romance is so adorably turmoiled... they really deserve some good fluffy bunny fics. Or non-angsty sex. Neither of which will come from me, I'm sad to say.

God only knows what insipid nonsense I'll torture people with the third time around...

Yesyesyes! I had a moment when I noticed him doing that. And also several moments when Snape (which I just spelt 'Snaple' for some Godforsaken reason. Maybe I subconsciously want to write fluffy things where Hagrid someone calls him that) told Remus and Sirius they were quarelling like an old married couple. And also when they kept touching each other. Because I terribly sad like that.

*runs around*

That is the most hilarious thing I've read all day! (Was it supposed to be? I doubt it, but then again I'm approaching the awake-for-24-hours stretch, so... yeah, wallpaper is amusing beginning to amuse me too) But you're right, there was a lot of apple action in that movie. I think it's all deviant vegetarian subliminal messages.

Now I'm going to see all the things you noted about them the next time I see it! I'm still deciding whether Harry slashed with Remus, Sirius, or Snape is a squicky thing or not for me. Of course, this is coming from someone who saw Lucius/Draco in CoS :)

No, no! We're both wrong! It's product placement courtesy of the apple industry! Trust them to single out a big name movie like PoA... those crafty apple farmers...

Now I'm going to see all the things you noted about them the next time I see it!

Uh... I'm sorry? I don't mean to corrupt people. Haha, but Lucius and Draco. Now that's fun. "Heel, bitch!" "Coming, Daddy!"

Nnnooooo... I didn't see that at all...

No need for apologies, I'm warming up to the idea >:]

Crafty apple farmers. Eeevil too. Can you imagine--Slytherin apple farmers?

(P.S. This is awesome! I stumbled across it today and I was blown away. You rock!)

During the boggart scene, Remus is eating an apple.

He is? And I, with my apple fetish, didn't notice? OMG. :)

*nods* I'm seeing it again tomorrow just for the R/H. Can't wait. <3

I didn't catch it the first time I saw it either... he starts eating after Neville faces the Snape!boggart and the other kids start trying. My first thought was, "What? Did he miss lunch or something?"

I'm seeing it again tomorrow just for the R/H. Can't wait.

I'm sort of sorry to say that's the main reason I'm seeing it multiple times... it's just... so... sweet. And so much better than I expected. *gwee* Have fun!

Have not yet seen the movie, but I do prefer batshit-Sirus.

I think I have a thing about characters what are batshit. *eyes icons meaningfully*

Er yes. Wandered here from Saiyuki Odd Pairing Community. Hello~

You're deeply nifty, so I randomly friendslisted ye. I hope that's okay :D

Hehe... I love my slightly mentally unbalanced characters. I find it amusing when people try to argue for their sanity. No! You're missing the point! It's the batshitcrazyWTF??edness that makes them so gosh-durn likable! *has been thoroughly distracted*

Ooh, new friend....

o.o I've never met anyone who tried to argue that Dougan or Yisou are sane...

*iconfangirly* Poor bunny.
