My photography course at Hogwarts

Fri Jan 11, 2013, 3:55 AM
Uuuugh you guys, my sleep has been so terrible. I woke up out of a pretty entertaining dream, though.

I was taking a photography class at Hogwarts and Snape was our teacher. I think Ron and Harry might also have been in our class but I never did see them. Our assignment at the time was to get ten outstanding photographs of animals in their natural habitat and he told us we had to roll up our pant-legs and go wading in a swamp full of alligators and poisonous snakes if we hoped to get any good ones. He meant this literally. This was our assignment. (Oh, Snape! :D )

So I actually did it; I took off my shoes and wandered into the bog, dodging snakes and snapping away. I took so long about it that I missed the start of critique and I sort of ran into Snape with some of my classmates on a bridge while I was headed back to the castle. He was reviewing their photos (and grading ruthlessly, as he does). He saw me and said, "What are you doing? You knew we had critique."

I answered, "Yeah, I know. I'm not ready. I want to say I have ten good ones but it was dark in the swamp and I think I had my aperture set all wrong. I know this is going to affect my grade. Is there any way I can make it up? Maybe get some extra credit?"

He said, "I think there is."  

So we cut class then and there, went to a bar, got a little shitfaced, and took these incredibly goofy staged photos of the two of us having weirdly overacted conversations. We were supposed to be criminals in a speakeasy engaged in dirty dealings involving money and liquor. I'm pretty sure one of us was wearing pinstripes. Maybe both of us. ( I have a very strong suspicion we never showed these photos to anyone afterward. )

It was good. Good times.

Hibbary, why are your dreams so cool? TAT
My dreams are usually pretty much the same. I'm a fire mage and have a fire dragon and travel across some LotR-like land. The plot is like from some bad TV series, through :XD:

the last part sounded like a lead in to something terrible XD but turned out hilarious. I love weird dreams like these. I had a pretty in depth one this morning where I was renting in a huge old house that had been redone to have separate apartments, and I kept running into my mom (who I don't talk to anymore) on the streets just outside the place. And this place was like, six stories tall and the family that owned the house had a rivalry with the people across the street and they had their aladdin VHSs stolen or something--dude was pretty upset about it. I also got attacked by a freaky dragon-big cat hybrid that could fly AND THE HULK WOULD NOT HELP ME, WHAT A JERK.

That's brilliant. One of the times you really wish somebody would invent a dream recorder so you could post the thing on YouTube.

Best one I've had lately was I dreamed I was in a Dr Who episode. I got killed at the end tho. :-(

Oh! Since I've been following your work for such a long time, maybe I could draw it for you? I'm not as well-polished in skill compared to you, but I would like to award your efforts in some way.

Naw, anything is fine! I'm not at all picky. :3 I'm just excited to see what you come up with!

As for the fanart, I dunno. Maybe because I don't have 'characters' per se.

Though in some side sense it would make sense for Snape and photos to mix... you use chemicals to develop film and such... kinda like potions but not, I guess? LOL

Last night I knew I was dreaming so I kept trying to bounce and float around, and make my living room be bigger so I had room. I hate when my subconscious remembers what reality is supposed to be like.
...there was also something about ghosts...and cats... I swear this has nothing to do with my username and somehow we were going to use the little disco ball I go for Christmas to fight the ghosts with... and Doctor Who might have been involved...? and for once I had a dream with the proper kind of ghosts that you can't see, rather than hooded figures. why am I proud of that, I don't even know....

Last night I remember dreaming dozens of Ospreys (the aircraft) flying overhead trailing gigantic Texas Aggie themed banners. I was very confused.

OMG that was an awesome dream! I don't think I've ever had a hogwarts dream no matter how much I re-read the books :( I'm one of those people who have blank nights almost every night, then one very intense dream once in a blue moon :P My last crazy one, I got possesed by some form of insectoid parasitical alien that were trying to take over the earth by possesing all humans! I woke up when I saw it had finally taken over my body and was going for my brain! :P

...Better than the ones I was having for a while.
Snape and Petigrew singing about killing Harry's parents, when suddenly Jack Sparrow bursts in singing [link].
Or the Wild Thornberrys and the Muppets singing the Time Warp.
I advise to NEVER watch movies/shows with same actors in close succession.
