One of the largest Harry Potter events ever, the Quidditch World Cup, is going on THIS WEEKEND. Randalls Island, NYC.

On Saturday and Sunday Nov 12-13, 100 Quidditch teams totally close to 2000 players from around the United States and the world will be competing. This is not just a day of sport either. Musical acts including some of your favorite Wizard Rock bands will be performing throughout the day both days. These are complimented by the incredible feats of the Sharkbite Sideshow, which includes fire eaters, sword swallowers, magicians, snake charmers, belly dancers and more! Live Owl demonstrations will also be on site!


Tickets are still available online and can also be purchased at the gates. You do not want to miss this event!
Hey guys,

I'm just back from Sirens (which was awesome) and wanted to let you all know that one of our guests, Kristin Cashore, author of Graceling and it's just released companion book, Fire, is going to be at Politics and Prose on October 14 for a book signing.

I am planning on going to say "Hi", if anyone is interested in meeting me there. It starts at 4:30 (and there is another event at 7:00).

RL name: Amy

LJ name: author_by_night 

Age: 24

How did you come to live in DC? (Are you a student? Have you always lived here? Are you new to the area?): I live more like an hour and forty five minutes away  from DC - I'm very close to Baltimore. I'm not new to the area exactly, but I didn't grow up here; we moved here when I was in middle school.

Who is your favorite character?
I'm not sure - they all changed throughout the books, as did my opinion of them. I'd have to go with Neville, Luna, Remus, Tonks, and Hagrid. Yes, I'm one of the few people who likes Hagrid.

What's your favorite pairing? Remus/Tonks, or was before TDH when it was just... weird. I'm also fond of Ron/Hermione.

What's your favorite book in the series?
A tie between Order of the Phoenix and The Deathly Hallows with Prisoner of Azkaban as a second runner-up.

How long have you been in the fandom: Nine years. LJ was an infant and fanfiction.net was "the place" to be if you were a fan of the Harry Potter books and liked fanfiction. Oh, how fast things change.

I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone! I see there's a meeting August 15th - I'll just be heading back home from vacation, but I'll try and attend a meetup at some point. Unfortunately, I don't drive, so it's hard for me to get places, but depending on where everyone meets I'm hoping something will work out eventually. Are meetups ever in Baltimore? It would be easier to attend one there (though still not definite), and I would love to meet more people who are as into Harry Potter as I am.

Who is your favorite character? Female, my two favorites are Hermione and Luna. Draco is my favorite Male
What's your favorite pairing? Ron/Hermione
What's your favorite book in the series? OOtP
How long have you been in the fandom: I started reading the books when the second one had only been out a month or so, so I think I was like 9. I read the Second one first by accident.

It's awesome that there are so many other HP fans here. I'm a costumer/cosplayer, and I'm always looking to meet other HP costumers (or even just fans). Does anyone know if there are any cosplay groups in the area for HP?  If there are, I'd love to  get to know you guys/join.

I usually cosplay Hermione.

bitsy cherry
OK. So July was a bust. I don't know if everyone has already seen the movie as many times as they want to or not. If people don't want to do HBP we can do a meal. Or if anyone has other suggestions that'd be good too!

Let's start with the date!

OK, since I failed so hard and don't want to go to the movies by myself I'm going to post a new poll for IMAX on Monday (I seem to get better responses during the week when people are at their computers).

If people don't want to the movie again we can do dinner! I swear we will have a meet up!

hp- confusion
Why do I suck at this so much? I totally made a post that I was calling it for this Sunday afternoon (the 26th) and that I would post when movie times became available. But I made it in my own journal, again! If my complete failure to organize in a timely fashion means people can't go we can try again for IMAX. Sorry guys!

I'm thinking the Regal in Gallery Place but I'm definitely open to suggestions if that doesn't work well for people.

Are you in?

Ohmy god, you guys. I did it again. I posted the poll in my own journal instead of the comm. I don't know what my malfunction is. Please hop over to my journal and let us know what day you'd like to go see the movie. Sorry!
