Hey all,

I don’t know how many of you have a DreamWidth, but I wanted to let you know that I have created a community for Harry Potter fans in Canada. http://hp-canada.dreamwidth.org/profile

Also, for those of you that are new to DreamWidth, there is a friending meme here: http://lord-harrymort.livejournal.com/37219.html

Don’t have DreamWidth yet? No problem, for those that want codes you can go to this LJ community dw_codeshare. Those of us that have codes will leave a comment with what we want in return (fic, graphics etc…) and those of you that need codes can check out the comments and see which request you might be able to fulfill in order to get a code in return.

Hope to see you over there!

Calgary Flames & Dion Phaneuf Fans: Toyota Face Off [02 Apr 2009|02:40pm]

For all Calgary Flames fans:

Dion Phaneuf, defenceman, of the Calgary Flames is giving you and 15 friends (16 people total) a chance to spend some time on the ice with him. If you've been to the games, you've probably seen the masks being handed out at Pengrowth Stadium. It's a contest being run by Toyota, and it actually runs until the Flames get kicked out of the season. Here's hoping they make it into the playoffs.

Visit Face off with Dion.com and enter to win an hour of ice time with Dion Phaneuf. He'll show you all the game secrets that make him so awesome!

Open to Alberta residents only!

I want to start up the meeting again. (Halifax Nova Scotia ) [22 Sep 2007|01:24pm]

Hey do you have any more friends that like Harry Potter.
I am hoping to re-connect with some people that love Harry as much as I do.
I want to start up the coffee meeting that " halipotter   " (halifax Harry Potter Community Group ) that we use to hold last year.
you should join the other group now that you live in the City.
if you know of some that read the books or like the movies and you think they might like to join pass this info along.
X post in  Nova Scotia  Communities and Harry Potter Communities.
I would also like to note that there is an other HP Group [info]harrypotter_ns

Ok Harry Potter Post coming at you! [20 Sep 2007|01:53pm]

So I am a some kind of reading freak.
I am here drinking some hot chocolate out of my Hogwarts/ Harry Potter over size mug.
Cuddled under my HARRY POTTER blanket he is flying in a game and he is looking to grab a snitch.
Reading the last book again. ( Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows )

I need to get a life.
But i cant stop reading and well I cant help crying I cry some where when i am reading these books.

Hey everyone!

I hope this is allowed (feel free to deleted if it's not), but I just wanted to let you all know that I've created two seperate communities (one for Ron/Harry and one for Ron/Draco), so that those shippers who are attending Prophecy can get to know each other before hand.

The two communites are here:

Ron/Draco prophecy_rd


Ron/Harry prophecy_rh

So if you're attending Prophecy (and you love either of these pairings), come check us out!

Rennervate! [02 Nov 2006|02:00am]

[ mood | patriotic ]

For such a wonderful and badly needed community, it is far too quiet here lately. SO far as I have seen this is the only community dedicated solely to Canadians who love all things Harry Potter!

Does everyone know that we will be hosting Prophecy 2007, in Toronto, from Aug. 3-5, 2007? Finally, the HP world will be on our doorstep. There are also three HP Meetups in Canada right now, in Mississauga, Calgary, and Vancouver. So remember everyone, if you know a fellow Canadian who loves HP, direct them our way. Spread the word. Let's show the world that when Canada talks fandom, we mean business!

Won't You Be Mine? [14 Feb 2006|03:46am]

[ mood | foreign ]

I didn't want my other favourite community to feel left out, so here is a special Valentine for all my Canadian friends!

I apologise for the art. Is it clear now why I let the wonderful pottermemoirs handle the Photoshopping of the Hardcore Valentines?

[ mood | bored ]

Am I the only Hamiltonian here?

*listens to the crickets chirp*

Am I the only Hamiltonian who finds living in Ontario so bloody expensive that she probably has clothing that's more rattier and worn than anything in Lupin's closet?

I truly am bored.

Hamilton, Ontario: you are a boring place.

I oughta reread the entire HP series.. from start to HBP. That'd unbore me, but I know I lost Chamber of Secrets somewhere in my room...

play a game... [10 Sep 2005|12:39am]

[ mood | bored ]

Let’s play a little round of "Who Would You Cast As…" in the name of distraction and well, curiosity.

Looking at the two books that haven’t been made into movies yet, who would you cast in the new or uncast roles? Is there anyone you would recast? Why?

To add Canadian content, chose from British or Canadian actors.

So… "Who Would You Cast As…?"

A Thought... [18 Aug 2005|12:59am]

I had a thought...and I hope it's not OT or anything. It's about Hermione. Don't her parents mind that she spends all her summers with Ron's family? That girl is never home. Don't her parents miss her, wonder about her? Do you think they even know what she does all the time?

Sorry, I guess it was more of a rant than a thought...

HBP in Ottawa [06 Jun 2005|09:26am]

[ mood | awake ]

I've been watching this community for a while and finally have something to post about. :)

I'm gathering Ottawa HP fans for a HBP release party. The plan so far is to pick up our books at the Chapters across from the Rideau Centre and then head back to my place for a night of fun, food and reading aloud. If any here is from the Ottawa and would like to participate, we're more than happy to welcome new faces. If anyone wishes to spend the night, be aware that it will be on the floor, so just bring a sleeping bag!

I suppose a brief introduction would also be in order. :)

I'm Sheryll, 45, long time HP fan and HPFGU member, part of the planning team for last year's Convention Alley.

I wrote this ages ago and thought I'd share. I liked it better before I cut it down to drabble size, but I can't find that copy so, um... Enjoy!

Hello, everyone!

I'm actually not Canadian, but some people and I are holding a Live Harry Potter RP (or .. something of that sort.  I'm really not sure what it is.) in Toronto.
If you'd like to join in the fun, all the information is here.  Leave a comment on that post if you have any questions or comments!

[ mood | hungry ]

I just randomly stumbled across this community! So lets just say I was happy to find it as I am Canadian, from BC to be specific, and am a big fan of all things HP. A little bit about myself... I'm 20, and often bored, new to LJ, and some other stuff or something, and apparently I'm not very specific. If anyone ever wants to chat just add me!
