Yesterday was my birthday and I barely know where to begin. Cursed Child is finally mine, at least, I can say that much. Now I can read it myself and see what I think. Apart from that I got 29 other gifts. Yes, you read that correctly. I kept feeling like Dudley.

But they were all little things, down to useful stuff like new underwear, haha. So it wasn't 30 luxury items. Mother wanted to do something fun for my 30th birthday, so she decided to get thirty small gifts.

I've been gifted things online too and... way more than I ever expected. I'd heard whispering about one person writing me a little something and I was ecstatic. But then FOUR people wrote me something, and others sent me birthday messages. I'm honestly a bit overwhelmed. I literally didn't see that coming.

My friend Q and I started out as fandom friends and she's given me handwritten ficlets alongside physical gifts before, once or twice, kind of like a bonus. But by that point we'd already known each other – and met regularly – for years.

Meaning I've never had an online fandom friend write me something. Not like this. And that's kind of strange in a way, isn't it? Considering I've been in fandom for so long. But somehow I've never connected enough with people for them to do that?? Hence: ME BEING A LITTLE OVERWHELMED.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much. It really means a lot. It is SO inspiring and motivating knowing that people actually care and show support for each other in this community. I love how creative and appreciated it makes me feel. You are all the best!

I have my very own homemade cake and it is delicious. I've only had to share it with Mother and my aunt so far so there's plenty left, hahah. YUM. And when my aunt was here, she told us about a silly radio show that she thought was fun. We ended up listening for a while, the three of us. The program has a new theme every day and people get to call in. Yesterday's theme? "Things that have been ruined for you."

The first caller? Well, it was a young woman claiming that Harry Potter had been ruined for her. She seemed good-natured about it though and when they asked her why, she said it was because of a game she'd heard of. One that I think many of us have heard of at some point. *SNORT* You know, when you replace the word "wand" with "penis"?

This was, of course, hilarious to me. Not so much because of the juvenile game itself but more because of their reactions. Also Harry Potter grabbing a penis seemed to be my very own birthday theme, considering what people wrote for me. :D

She asked if the hosts wanted a few examples and one started with Harry casting his patronus. By that time I bent over in my chair and face-planted into the kitchen table half mortified and half dying of laughter because I knew what was coming. Yeah, so it was all about him gripping the wand penis tighter and white stuff shooting out of it. :D Mother was horrified but also vaguely amused and both of them seemed wildly confused while I cackled like a mad person.

All in all it was a lovely, slow day. One of those relaxing ones that end up being just the right amount of fun without being too much or too tiring.

Maybe you've seen these already but click below to check out what people wrote for me. <3

I wrote several thousand words combined in response to every piece already so I'm not going to start again. ♥ But know that they were SO LOVED, and if anyone hasn't read these yet PRETTY PLEASE DO because I wholeheartedly recommend them. They're fun and sexy and hilarious. :D That's all I'll say.

I'm so glad you had such a fun and gift-filled birthday!! I forgot to mention that YES I am aware of Monty Python, I was a huge MP fan back in the day and I've even dressed as the dead parrot for Halloween! Wish I had a pic to post, that was a good costume. Crazy that yesterday was basically MP day!

Also, I did get all the JP refs in your hilarious comment and they were spot on!

Ahahahah, I'm thrilled to hear it. Especially that you dressed as the dead parrot. WOW, I have such respect for you. That is commitment! And SUCH a great costume.

So glad that you had a happy day. It was a pleasure to write a teeny something for you and I only wish it could have been more substantial! But I read and very much enjoyed your other gifts and feel that fandom did spoil you, pretty much. :D HP fandom on LJ really is the nicest place. I'm glad you found us ♥

Goodness, I might've dropped dead if you'd had time to write anything else. I think it's safer this way. ;)

Ahh yes. Fandom has spoiled me rotten, there's no way of denying it. <3

I keep thinking back to March and April when I was starting to rediscover the LJ side of things. I was mostly searching fic at random on AO3 still, though, and I saw all of you tight-knit people gifting fic to each other and whatnot. I really wanted to join in, and now here I am. And now I'm the one people are giving fic??? It's so surreal but very, very appreciated.

<3333 You deserve every word! I was so hoping to write something for you, too, but grad school is evil. I'm so happy you had a great birthday! ♥

Penises at the ready! \o/

Oh my god, you are all the best. You're making me a blubbering mess again, haha. I appreciate the thought. And hey, it's probably for the best that you didn't have time to write something. I fear I might've lost my mind if I received anymore delicious gifts.

My day was filled with enough penises, gifts and cake as it was. ;)

Ahhhh I love you so much, you don't even know! I was tempted to film a youtube video dedicated to you, fyi, but didn't... yet!

Er, anyway I am so pleased you had such a wonderful day, you certainly deserved all the love in the world.

And omg that was adorable of your mother to get you 30 gifts for your bday, how thoughtful and clever and sweet!

God, you should've seen the PILE of 'em. It was insane. Almost awkwardly so, hahah. But it was so fun and so thoughtful of her, I agree. And really nice stuff, too.

EEEE, a video for me? Goodness, now I'm curious what you would've said. Or will say?? We just don't know. Honestly, I'm not even subscribed to you, I just keep checking on your channel every so often instead. I'm going to do something about that, finally. :D

Ahahaha, you are VERY WELCOME. It's the least I could do. I'm hoping to read it again later and have something more substantial to say. I feel like my comment was mostly flailing and a lot of EMOTIONS everywhere. What you wrote was so intense and toeing the line of something so profound that I feel like it needs a proper review when I'm not overcome with love and excitement only.

AAAHHH yes. I think Dudley got more though?? I read the darn book again only a few months ago but I forget. Either way I kept thinking of him and I felt like I was meant to throw a fit and ask for more. LOL.

*SNORT* Yeah, next year I'll have to demand AT LEAST thirty-one. Maccadole? More like Maccadudley.

Actually, no, that just sounds like a ship name. :D Oh god, what have I done. Please prevent me from attempting humor in the future.

Yay, I'm happy too. Thanks for the lovely comment <3
