Potter and Beatles - It's A British thing?

I've been a Beatles fan my entire life (no choice in the matter, really, thanks to a dutifully-obsessed Boomer brother) and a Potterphile for the last four years or so, so you'd THINK I would have noticed this sooner.

Many, many people who like Potter also like the Beatles.

Wow. *gapes in awestruck dumbfounded redundant wonderment*

But, but, but...wait! The BEST part? When I first noticed this *coughNOTcough* mind-boggling crossover of my fandoms on Mugglenet, there seemed to be a disturbing pattern. It seemed that all the Paul fans liked Sirius, while the Lennon gals dug Snape. Which of course totally pissed ME off because I adore Paul AND John AND Snape, but I wouldn't wipe my ass on old Dogboy if he begged me for a shit massage. Unless he's fucking Snape, I've just got no use for the dude, okay?

Happily, I have since learned whilst exploring the Fabs fandom that many, MANY Paul fans love Severus, too. Which proves that even women who normally go for the lush-lipped doe-eyed pretty boys CANNOT resist the presence, cool, and awesome sexual allure that is Severus Snape.


Next time? "Why Severus Snape is the Yoko Ono of Potterverse." Oh, and how much people who compare the fucking Marauders to The Beatles suck. And should stop it. Right now. :D

Hee! Thanks. I'll see what other epiphanies/rants I can come up with in the shower. ;)

hello xD I found your profile in the beatleslash group.
I'm also a fan of both - beatles and hp. MY favorite hp character is Severus Snape, obviously. And Lupin, yes.
well, I've seen many beatle fans who like HP books! but the other way round? Hm. It would be awesome if ALL the hp fans were also beatle peps, right? ;)

nice note.

It would be nice, wouldn't it? Think of all the crossover fiction possibilities...

Alas, I don't know anything about LOTR. Never grabbed me, for some reason.

*squees at the mention of mugglenet*

I can't even recall how I've just stumbled across this but I have to say: the HELL you talking 'bout?!?! Sirius is quite obviously a hot piece of ass.

Okay, sure, Snape's got that whole "Don't you want to just screw me senseless because I'm so naughty?" thing going on, but Sirius has um... sunken cheeks and matted hair. Hot stuff, no?

Oh, sure. Pretty-boy-turned-vampire certainly works as a visual. But as a character? Grrr. HATE him. HATE James Potter. HATE Wormtail. My unofficial motto as regards the Marauders is "Seventy-five percent asshole, fifty percent dead." xD

As you can see, the "Snape's Worst Memory" chapter of Order of the Phoenix pretty much scarred me for life.

"Snape's Worst Memory" has got to be one of my favourite chapters of the entire series. Creepy, loner teenage Snape is so enticing isn't he?

So does Lupin get out of your Marauders hate because he's the only non-ass in the chapter? Or is it something way more fun like you have an odd kink for werewolves?

I've got to say (in the most respectful way of course :P) that you're insane. I love the Marauders. Well, except for Wormtail of course.

Oh, and here's something I stole for you from someone's signature in the COS Forums. I'm sorry, just couldn't help it. :)

Oh, SO not funny. (Well. Okay. Maybe just a little.) *sniff* But I suppose I should expect no better from a...a...MARAUDERS fan. (Now, there, you see? I feel all lightly coated with slime from just typing "Marau..." That word. Thanks. Thanks a lot.)

Yes. xD

Come on, type it! You know you enjoy it. MARAUDERS! Think of all the wondeful things they've done! Sirius' old house was HQ for the Order. James, uhhh... IS HARRY'S FATHER! Oho! Think of the Maruader's Map! Where would Harry be without it?

And hurrah for werewolve kinks!!!

Oh my God!! How have I never clicked on your username before?!! Your journal is AWESOME!! Also, I too am an avid Snape fan, and really sorta have no use for Sirius (and o'course I'm a Paulgirl too, but you knew that already).
Sep. 5th, 2006 12:58 pm (UTC)
Hee! See what you've been missing? *snort*

I knew you were a Snape fan (I think we both admired one of madharlequin's Snape icons together) and I was delighted to hear it. Isn't it...freaky, though? I mean, think about it. Severus Snape. Paul McCartney. Severus Snape, Paul McCartney. Harley, dinette set, Harley, dinette set...

We are two freaked-out wiggy chicks. I guess neither of us was kidding when we were all, "Paul's my ONLY fandom pretty boy, I swear!"

And now I keep wondering how many people I'm friends with in this Beatleslash fandom that I might have known in my previous incarnation as "Severely Snapped."

Harley, dinette set, Harley, dinette set...


It's true, though! I never like the pretty boys. Ever. John is, physically, MUCH more my type. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that The Beatles are actually, y'know, REAL. Like, much as I dig the dark characters, in real life I do tend to go for safe guys. So, between John and Paul... I'll take the one who doesn't hit and loves babies, thank you very much.

Though of course it's gratifying to know Paul isn't as sunshine-cuddley as he seems. >:D And that he's a notoriously great fuck.

There's still the "pretty" factor, though. I'm still not quite sure how I came by this helpless lust for him. Soft jawline? Chipmunk-cuteness? Small, exquisite nose? Those are usually huge turn-offs for me. *sigh* I guess Paul's just special.

Yeah, that never hurts a fellow's chances, does it?

(Paul says, “You want it, baby, you know where it's at.”)

Hi =)... sorry I couldn't resist to comment on this hehe but I love John, and Paul, AND Sirius hahaha (You're gonna hate me now xD) I don't know, I just fell for Sirius... xD.... but I'm not into HP like I was when I was 16/17... but I still like it =) oh well, I was wondering if I can add ya to my friends hehe :D
Sep. 5th, 2006 12:48 pm (UTC)
I could never hate you! You can't help it if you like Dogboy...er, I mean Sirius. Everyone has at least one fault, right? ;)

And of course you can add me, I'd love it. I'll add you back. I don't update very often, though, as you can see...
Sep. 5th, 2006 03:49 pm (UTC)
