Tuesday is Here

First of all, my thoughts are with everyone affected by the violence in London and the UK. There's a post by locals with useful news and support links I found to be of interest at the sherlockbbc community here: "London and UK Riots."

In Harry Potter news:

I'll be the Keynote Speaker at the upcoming "Harry Potter and Crossover Audiences: The 2011 Potter Watch Conference" event on October 1, 2011. It should be a magical time! Thanks to gods_lil_rocker and PotterWatch: The Official Harry Potter Club of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte for the lovely invitation!

If you're anywhere in the area, please consider submitting a proposal for a paper or panel. Here's the call for papers. Abstracts are due by August 15, 2011.

In Firefly and Serenity news:

* The Can't Stop the Serenity 2011 charity events are taking place all over the world. Our local event, in Charlotte, NC, will be held on September 18.

* Browncoats: Redemption, A Firefly Fan Film for Charity, will only be available for purchase until the end of the month. I just received my remastered DVD set, and it's wonderful. It even includes the soundtrack! You can read my original review of the film here.

Last but certainly not least, happy early birthday wishes to gamgeefest,janissa11, lucybun, baka_kit, gabrielle_h, onegoat, mbranesf, and roo2. May all of you enjoy many happy returns of the day!

They're good at making sandwiches,
And breathing, and all that other stuff.
It's hard to call it pride,
But I think they're good enough.
There's no shame in Hufflepuff.
