So, I ended up seeing HP 6 last night, and it got me thinking...

You are a sick, twisted individual.

And now my head is inventing IJ slash. DEAR GOD MAKE IT STOP....

Normally I just react to things, this I feel like I have to spend some time deciding how to react to...
ETA: My reaction is 'totally amused'.

Literal LOL over here at the idea of IJ slash...

"Hal Incandenza rested his head against cool tile wall of the ETA men's locker room's communal shower as the hot water coursed down his back. He noticed, now, for the first time, the way the endless array of interlocked lemniscate tiles tessellated in a manner suggesting the Kekulean ring of a benzene molecule.

For some reason, he thought of Byzantine erotica.

At that moment, John 'N.R.' Wayne entered the shower and slung his towel over the aluminum towel bar with an authoritative 'thwack'..."

Casting call:

J.O.I. as Dumbledore, of course,
Avril basically IS McGonnagal (sp?)
Gately as Hagrid?

ETA:* yikes! hadn't realized you had a link to your own blog post, which is quite brilliant, including for connections that might make those wishing to remain unspoiled avoid your blog for about another week. Since this is on the "spoilers are ok" side of the forums, I can note that I think the Eschaton chapter is the one that really somehow kicks this connection from the level of "cute coincidence" up to the level of "OMFG! It's all one big plot!." DFW (with deepest regret for the connection) is J.O.I., JKR is the Moms, and we are all their alternately warped predatory seducer/over-erudite pot smoking/sweet-natured homodont children.**

* and but so yes I just now realized that ETA as "edited to add" is another layer to the acronymical stew.
** but am I paranoid enough?

ETA: ETA: and Ann Kittenplan as Hermione Granger-with-a-crew-cut: not to be messed with!

Y'know since about 13 or 14 I've always put IRA instead of ETA for 'edited to add' because I didn't think it fair that one terroristy separatist group should get all the fun. Here though I've been putting ETA when necessary because of reasons you've pointed out...
But really, to follow my pattern, I should be putting AFR...

By the by, I would read X-over fic...

I imagined it would be required that all IJ slash involve Schtitt.
