Anime Boston; Friendship is Magic
I had an amazing time at Anime Boston this year. My favorite panels were the Sailor Moon Rebirth and Wendy Lee. Wendy Lee is one of my favorite voice actresses of all time. In the dealer’s room I obtained a Luna plushie and Artemis fleece/hood. I also picked up six GoT mini shadow box figures from Funko Pop.
My favorite new anime from this weekend is Panty and Stocking.
The most fucked up thing I saw was a koosh koosh video.
So much amazing cosplay!
Street passes for days.
All in all, quite the weekend!

Omg, Junior Master Chef. I’m a vegetarian who doesn’t even eat most of these dishes, but witnessing these children’s skill in conjunction with Gordon Ramsay’s soft spot has proven to be quite the guilty pleasure indeed,
The moment when Harry takes Draco's wand
J. K. Rowling: I said to Arthur, my American editor - we had an interesting conversation during the editing of seven - the moment when Harry takes Draco's wand, Arthur said, God, that's the moment when the ownership of the Elder wand is actually transferred? And I said, that's right. He said, shouldn't that be a bit more dramatic? And I said, no, not at all, the reverse. I said to Arthur, I think it really puts the elaborate, grandiose plans of Dumbledore and Voldemort in their place. That actually the history of the wizarding world hinged on two teenage boys wrestling with each other. They weren't even using magic. It became an ugly little corner tussle for the possession of wands. And I really liked that - that very human moment, as opposed to these two wizards who were twitching strings and manipulating and implanting information and husbanding information and guarding information, you know? Ultimately it just came down to that, a little scuffle and fistfight in the corner and pulling a wand away.
Melissa Anelli: It says a lot about the world at large, I think, about conflict in the world, it's these little things -
