Thank you magic_at_mungos for scoring the late time at the pub for us. I can't wait for Thursday to come so I can finally meet all of you. However, if you are around, no need to wait till Thursday. I'm here now and would love to meet people for drinks or a meal or coffee.

I can be reached in room 236 of the International Student's House at 229 Great Portland street (only 3 streets away from the radisson hotel.) The number there is 020 7631 8300. When they put you through to the room, just ask for Sandra. If I'm not there, leave me a message with your contact info and I'll get back to you.

For those of you that will be going to the Alnwick castle trip tomorrow, I'll be assisting Sinick with the group leading. So feel free to come up to me and say hi. For those of you not going, I'll see you on Thursday. After the opening ceremony, congregate by the bar. I'll be the one with the sign reading "Remus/Sirius DO IT DOGGIE STYLE! Meetup @ Sectus. ;) Till then, laters.

Bit late :/ sorry. I'm flying to London Thursday morning, so I'm currently planing to be at Thursday night meet-up all things going according to plan. Here is intro post :D

Name: Jynx
Location: Scotland
Are you a writer, artist, or reader/viewer? (Or all of the above? Or something else?) If you are a writer or artist, provide a link to one of your Remus/Sirius themed works: Valentines Day, 1979 I write and read, I always try to comment if I read and enjoy a fic but I don’t have the time to read all the fic I want to read :(
What are some of your favorite Remus/Sirius fics or authors? comtesse_sin, carmine_ink, shaggydogstail, katekintail, thistlerose, sheafrotherden, fleshdress, wildestranger, pre_rapaelite1, ninjajab and loads of others
What are some of your favorite pieces of Remus/Sirius art or artists? ponderosa, karasu_hime, crystal cow, ericha_pha, remiciel, kasche (apologies if anything is misspelled :()
Why does Remus/Sirius appeal to you? The history, that they were friends, the tragedy inherent in every story because we know it has to end badly. There’s enough canon to support the idea of a relationship between them, and enough obstacles and gaps that there’s lots of opportunities to explore.
When or how did you first become interested in Remus/Sirius? I started out in LOTR, that was always my thing, I gave into peer pressure, all my friends were reading HP fic and although I hadn’t even read the books at that point, I started read the fics they were talking about and reccing so I could be involved in their conversations. I read the books soon after that. I started out shipping and writing Harry/Draco and as I read more I realised I preferred the dynamic between Sirius and Remus and I prefer to read and write in the Marauder era and pre-Azkaban years.
Tell us some of your non-fandom interests, hobbies, or activities: Reading, mostly sci-fi or fantasy of some description. Music, I love collecting songs, my favorite just now are probably Buckcherry, Amy Winehouse, The Killers, Thirty Seconds To Mars, The Gossip, Regina Spektor, Rilo Kiley, Bright Eyes etc. I post and mod on a few discussion boards. I do Taekwon-do, err… that’s about it really.

Meetup [Jul. 15th, 2007|04:04 am]

Hello again!

This will be the last post from me as, I'm leaving for London later today and will have almost no internet access. (I will check it at least once before the meetup though.) Here is the official time and place where we are meeting up:

Remus/Sirius Meetup @ Sectus
Thursday 10:30pm (following the opening night ceremony)
We will meet up by the Venue bar from there we will go to the Dolphin Pub


magic_at_mungos has volunteered to contact the pub on Monday to verify the closing time and will hopefully post the times here. I should be staying at the International student house from 7/16-on. If you need to know the name I'll be registered under, email me with your contact info and I'll send you mine.

Someone has asked if we can post this at the Sectus forum. I have tried and tried and failed to register with that forum, so if someone that can log into the Sectus forum can post our meetup info there, I'll appreciate it loads.

That's all for now, See you in London!

MEET UP TIME AND PLACE [Jul. 14th, 2007|03:25 am]

Hey All,

From the feedback on the last post, it seems most likely that the R/S Meetup will be taking place Thurs night at the end of the opening ceremony (10:30pmish, respectively.)

We have two options, we can congregate at the venue bar which I believe will close at 11:30pm or we can migrate down the street to Dolphin pub (down the street.) From what I hear most pubs in London close around 11pm. So if there are any of you already in the UK and you'll like to call the pub to find out the closing time that will be great. The number to the pub is 0871-984-3585. Who ever finds out, please email me at paranoidsistah (at) aol.com and I'll edit this post.

At the moment, there are no other plans. If there is interest, we can still do a drabble/drawble meetup on either sat or sunday during the leaving picnic.

Please comment with your suggestions.

Setting a time to Meetup [Jul. 11th, 2007|03:51 pm]

[mood |anxiousanxious]

I've been asked to provide Meetup dates asap so that they can get printed on the events sheets being handed out at the conference. (I keep forgetting not everyone's on lj)

I've checked the other ship's events and these are their events (I'm posting them here for the multi-shippers amongst us who don't want to have any conflicts):

♥ Wednesday Night Dinner with sectus_marauder
♥ Thursday 12:00 pm; Slashers Picnic in the Park
♥ Thursday 6:00 pm; Harry/Draco Meetup
♥ Thursday either at lunch or during registration there will be a Snarry Meetup
♥ Friday 1:00-3:00 pm; Slashing Harry Drabble/Drawble Event
♥ Sunday 6:00 pm; Joint Harry/Draco and Snarry Farewell Dinner


As you can see there's hardly much happening on Sat or late night Friday.

So my following suggestions for a Remus/Sirius Meetup would be either:

1) 2pm-4pm(14:00-16:00)Thursday--We could migrate from the picnic and go to the pub that's across the street from the Opening Night Venue

2) 10:30pm(22:30)- After the Opening Ceremony we could go to the same pub

3) 6pm-8pm(18:00-20:00) Early Friday Dinner before the Book Release Party (leaves ya 2 hours to get in line for your book) We'll definitely pick a place near the area so that we're within walking distance.


The following are suggestions for a creative event (because I think it's sad that there are no R/S Sectus tees and I know I wouldn't mind having a R/S souvenir):

1) Drawble/Drabble Event, this can take place on Sat either during Brunch 10am-12pm or during an early dinner 4pm-6pm(or 16:00-18:00.)

The later time would leave you about 2 hours before the ball. We can put prompts in a hat or just have a specific theme, the options are endless. I'll also have my art materials if anyone wants to have a go at drawing.

and/or

2) During the Sunday Picnic we can have a Make your own Remus or Sirius Sock Doll Workshop.

I love making these quick dolls and if there's interest I can tell you what to bring to make these 8-10 inches tall dolls. Here are some samples though.Collapse )

Lastly, I'm hoping we could have a farewell type event on Sunday night
(maybe dinner with sectus_marauder, what do you think such_heights?)

Please comment with your preffered dates, times, and events. Thank You :)

Are you a writer, artist, or reader/viewer? (Or all of the above? Or something else?) Writer, reader and viewer, general cheerleader and fangirl. =)
If you are a writer or artist, provide a link to one of your Remus/Sirius themed works: You can see everything under my Remus/Sirius fic tag.
What are some of your favorite Remus/Sirius fics or authors? Good heavens, how to choose! minnow_53, shaggydogstail, magnetic_pole, to name just a smattering. As for fics - Mercy, Pity, Peace by juliefortune, With Half the Flick and Twice the Magic by sheafrotherdon and ninjajab - one heart-breaking, the other hilarious.
What are some of your favorite pieces of Remus/Sirius art or artists? kasche and remeciel draw really fabulous stuff.
Why does Remus/Sirius appeal to you? Over the years it has attracted so many talented people, and there's such a wealth of brilliant stuff out there. And one by one they've made me fall in love with these two together, and all the different ways why it just works.
When or how did you first become interested in Remus/Sirius? I doubt I'm alone when I cite shoebox_project, which swept me into fandom, fanfic, and R/S in one fell swoop!
Tell us some of your non-fandom interests, hobbies, or activities: I'm a big music fan, and love seeing music live - I also go to a lot of theatre, and very much enjoy activities of a dramatic persuasion.

Are you a writer, artist, or reader/viewer? (Or all of the above? Or something else?): I have to admit, I haven't read any fanfiction yet (total newbie!), but I am poised to learn more about it. :-) Otherwise, I am more into canon.
If you are a writer or artist, provide a link to one of your Remus/Sirius themed works: See above
What are some of your favorite Remus/Sirius fics or authors? See above
What are some of your favorite pieces of Remus/Sirius art or artists? The one with Sirius on the motorbike (don't have the link at hand right now)
Why does Remus/Sirius appeal to you? To me, it is the most exciting of all possible pairings in the books (besides, maybe, Tonks/Lupin, Hermione/Draco or Snape/Lily - in history). Both Remus and Sirius are extremely sexy and attractive characters. Together, they create an even higher tension. Oh well ...
When or how did you first become interested in Remus/Sirius? Right from scratch, when I read the scene in the shrieking shack. PoA was the first HP book I've got in my hands.
Tell us some of your non-fandom interests, hobbies, or activities: You find everything in the one and only entry of my LiveJournal. :-)

If you are a writer or artist, provide a link to one of your Remus/Sirius themed works: My favourite are the following two: http://little-werewolf.livejournal.com/46615.html and http://little-werewolf.livejournal.com/5218.html
What are some of your favorite Remus/Sirius fics or authors? I have always loved the fanfics from Dawnatello
What are some of your favorite pieces of Remus/Sirius art or artists? Can't find the link right now
Why does Remus/Sirius appeal to you? It's a nice pairing, and they simply already fit together because of their names. Moon/Star and Wolf/Dog - There must be a reason behind it after all.
When or how did you first become interested in Remus/Sirius? Remus/Sirius was my first slash pairing that I found out about and loved immediately, even if I have no real idea why.
Tell us some of your non-fandom interests, hobbies, or activities: I rpg too much for my own good, work in a Museum and spend the rest of my time, reading, playing something on the computer, studying, playing the piano or annoy one of my flatmates.

Are you a writer, artist, or reader/viewer? (Or all of the above? Or something else?): Mainly reading but I have written a few one shots. I’m not much good above that. Drabbles and one shots are my limits.
If you are a writer or artist, provide a link to one of your Remus/Sirius themed works:
All the links to my fics are tagged on my journal :D
What are some of your favourite Remus/Sirius fics or authors?thistlerose always writes good stuff but these days I’m reliant on recs from my flist. But I have never read Shoebox. *ducks and runs* It doesn’t really appeal to me.
What are some of your favourite pieces of Remus/Sirius art or artists? There’s a lot of good art in the Fictionally Remus/Sirius thread in the first post. They’re always pretty and corkart does awesome art as does teawithvoldy and lizardspots
When or how did you first become interested in Remus/Sirius? Fairy Boys and Midnight Conversations.
Tell us some of your non-fandom interests, hobbies, or activities: You mean outside of trying to kill myself through fandom? Sectus is currently eating my brain and I am trying to juggle full time work and part time studying as well. So I can give you a better answer after Sectus :D
