Weeks and weeks ago I was going to post about a few things, most of them fandomy, but I never got around to it. By now I only remember one thing.

I've been lucky enough to have had some pretty spectacular dreams over the years while I've been into various franchises, and shortly after I found myself back where it all started for me I did have one about HP. But, uh... well, get this, the dream was that I kissed Snape. I don't know how that makes you feel, but it completely baffled me. Listen, Snape...? *Thumbs up*

Great character, absolutely, but he's not my favorite or anything?

In the dream he looked like a mix between my headcanon and Alan Rickman. Which, to be fair, is pretty close anyway. He was a wonderful Snape, and such a handsome man. Honestly though, I'm still so confused. Out of all the characters to dream about...? But I'm still fairly delighted, I must say, all things considered.

Actually, I still remember this H/D dream I had when I was a teenager. It was wholly uneventful because it wasn't a detailed one, more like the kind of dream that's foggy and doesn't leave you remembering much. Basically, there was this campsite with cabins and a beautiful lake, and I was there with my family at the start of the dream. I saw Draco sitting at the end of a simple wooden pier, and then a car drove up further ahead, at the bottom of the campsite, and it was the Dursleys? Harry scrambled out and noticed Draco and they looked at each other. Then Harry and Draco had to stay there for quite a while, for some reason, and eventually - one day - they ended up sitting next to each other at the end of the pier and sharing a ~moment.

I remember being giddy about it all day after I woke up even though nothing even happened.

In other news.

I've seen the fucking Stanley Cup. The actual Cup. And yeah, no, I know it's just a trophy in the end, but it's also a tradition and a symbol that's become so important and well-known within the sport of hockey. It's still weird that I care because I've only been watching NHL stuff actively for a couple of years, but to me hockey's always been fast and exciting and I'm not surprised I ended up caring "for real" eventually. And now I am apparently overjoyed at seeing a giant bucket in person??? Who am I.

So the team I ended up liking best has a few Swedes, yeah? And this spring they won the playoffs for the first time since I became a fan. Obviously I was thrilled, and the idea that the Cup would be in Sweden was amazing. Not enough for me to travel further south to see it though. It's not THAT big of a deal, not for a few hours and a glimpse. BUT. There's this guy who comes from a small town super near me and he hadn't technically played enough games to count, but he applied for a few days with the Cup anyway and they freaking granted him it. Sooooo, me and my best friend drove there and uhhhhm here I am as the dork I am???



Don't get me wrong, he seems like a great person - the little I know about him - and it is impressive that he's made it to the AHL/NHL and been part of a team that won the playoffs. Buut, I was honestly more excited about seeing the actual Cup? Ahaha. And eh, I wore this jersey because it's a more serious one with patches instead of a print only, like my other one. But I ONLY saw people wearing the captain's jersey, so that was a little boring and mainstream. Not that wearing the alternate captain's would've been much better, and that's the only other one I own, but at least I would've stood out a little bit if I had.

I have some vague ideas for things to write too, I just have to work up the nerve to actually do it. At least I'm one step closer?

I hope you're well and having a good weekend. :D
