Double, double, toil and trouble... by Shannon

I don't have any real Hallowe'en plans for this year, so I've a feeling I'll be drafted into answering the doorbell at the parental abode. I'm tempted to assemble my Hermione costume once more (*points to user icon*), or at least put on the robes with the Gryffindor patch on them. But it'll never compare to the Hallowe'en I walked around my undergraduate campus in full Hogwarts kit, right down to the kneesocks, and spent two hours browsing in the college bookstore just to see what sort of reaction I'd get. It didn't disappoint, I can assure you.

Incidentally, that was also the Hallowe'en where I ended up on stage at a Rocky Horror production, still in full Hogwarts kit, with a 'V' marked on my forehead in red lipstick, grinning all over the place as an audience full of college students screamed 'SLUT!' at me. And Super!Fanfic!Slut!Hermione was born.

However, Super!Fanfic!Slut!Hermione must be distinguished from Magical Pretty Girl Hermione. If you can think of a better henshin phrase than 'Hogwarts, A History Power! Make Up!', I'd like to hear it.

Goddamn it, Hallowe'en is in a week. I should prolly do something about that, shouldn't I? I mean on the site, not in general. I plan to do things in general. I generally do.

But a lot of that depends on what I'm gonna have to do this week. Possibly landing a job (but let's not count our c.'s before they h., right?), gearing up for two cons, and trying to deal with a hedgehog who's literally climbing the walls - or at least trying - only allows me so much time. Fortunately, I'm way ahead on my comics, just for times like this.

I may get out my velvet duster and green carnation and go party as George. Although I doubt my friends would take kindly to having a teething hedgehog in the vicinity of small children, so Humphrey will have to stay at home.
