14th of January 2016… – Just 4 days after the great musician David Bowie passed away.

*Okay, thank you, and good luck with the rest of your exams!* I just got told that I’ve passed my Internship. Happy day! My mentor and I walk down the hall… And then the unthinkable happened. 
*PIEP* – A text message from one of my best friends.
*2 seconds later* *PIEP* – Another text message from another friend.
And then the madness started. My phone kept buzzing for at least 10 minutes with new messages from youtubers and friends. Messages with the worst news a Potterhead could ever get. 
Alan Rickman died due to cancer,  age 69. – My world collapsed, and so did the world of many others. 

image

Our beloved Professor Snape is no more. 

image

On facebook the group “Belgian Potterheads” was filling up with comments on the sad lost and a lot of pictures and favorite moments were commented. And then the tears, oh god, the tears. 
Never have I ever … Cried like a baby when an actor died. #DRINK 

image

(Credit to Matthias Anthonis, Belgian Potterhead)
Some people, like Matthias, made some great fan art about his passing, which is beside sad, very creative… and actually really awesome. 
We will never forget the first time Harry saw Snape in the great hall and after that when we all got to know his name, thank you Percy. And remember that first Potions class with Snape?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brDO1mx4SUo ❤ That was actually one of my favorite scenes.

image

God, the memories. So after I heard the news, and read all the reactions on facebook, I abandoned my plans of doing the perfect boyfriend tag with the Belgian Potterheads. Instead I asked them to write their thoughts and feelings down. But somehow that post got a lot of likes but no reactions….
But then lightning struck. 2 days after Alan passed away, A very big Belgian Newspaper had the guts to call his death badly planned and other stuff like that… Find the post I did about it HERE .
And then something happend that I don’t think someone (who doesn’t know us) saw coming. The Belgian Potterheads united and send the editorial office emails to complain EN MASSE. And that was just the best thing ever.

image

Because of that, and in honour of Alan, I asked the Belgian Potterheads to help me with something. I’ve chosen 5 categories…. 
So, without further ado, welcome to the…

2016 RICKMAN AWARDS!

These are the 5 categories: 
* Best Quote
* Funniest Moment
* Best moment as Snape in a Harry Potter movie

So, you liked the ‘2016 Rickman awards’? Yes? Then comment below or share this post 🙂 and keep on reading.  If not… just keep on reading. 


For this last part, written at 2 am at night, I’m just posting pictures and stuff…
Even untill this day, I see new fan art and drawings/cartoons about him pass by…

image

Some are remembering Alan Rickman.
Others are remembering the great Severus Snape

image

Even the jokes, songs and his appearances in tv shows are getting viewed again. Over and over.
Remember that silly little song from “Potter Puppet Pals” called “The Mysterious Ticking Noice”? -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tx1XIm6q4r4 Someone made a cartoon about it. And it just hit me. I couldn’t get it out of my head anymore.

image

So I started drawing and painting myself and came up with this : 

image

It’s not my best work. But I like it. But yet again, not my best work. 
Finally, I gathered some links to his tv shows interviews and scenes from harry potter, tribute videos and Ryan Higa doing his voice. SPOT ON. 
But before you go and watch all of these, remember, 

image

and still…

image

But I do believe that, one day, I will look back at this moment and cry a bit. And when my friends ask me why I’m crying and ask if it’s still about the 14th of January 2016, I will answer them : 

image

So, thank you guys for reading this far. Thank you, Belgian Potterheads for helping me out. Thank you Everyone for you fan art and pictures and stuff like that. And thanks to one of my friends for helping to choose the winners in the Rickman Awards
Thank you, Jo, for getting professor Snape into our lives and giving Alan the opportunity to play that part.
And thank you mister Alan Rickman. For making us, Potterheads, who we are today. We wouldn’t have been the same without you. 
We love you. And we Always will.

Now keep on reading. I know you want to. Don’t forget to leave a comment! 
Thank you again!

Lights are just things…

Hy everyone! And welcome to my first book review of the year! 
(sorry iedereen.. opnieuw een engelstalige post 😦 Volgende week een Nederlandstalige! Belooft!)
I’m going to talk about a book I actually finished reading last year. But because of blogmas I didn’t find the time to write a bookreview about it. It was in general a lovely book. But not suited for everyone…I think. Ah well, read on, you can decide for yourself! 
The book is called “All the Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr (an American author) and was one of the books I could tick of my list from last years Reading Challenge. (http://belgiumgirlwithdreams.blogspot.be/2015/05/2015-reading-challenge.html ) Anthony actually became somewhat famous with this book…
So if you are wondering where I got this book: I did an internship for almost 2 months at my local library. And this was one of the books that came in one day and I was drawn to it! I just couldn’t keep my eyes of the cover… when I had to put it in place the next day I asked the librarian to put it on my card and now I have it at home 🙂 ( for another 2 days or so XD than I have to return it :p) 
But yeah, that’s my plan for this blogpost!! 
If you haven’t read the book yet and you’re planning to read it, DON’T READ THE REST OF THIS POST!!!! ( not that many spoilers but hey, don’t say I didn’t warn you).
For those who continue reading this, WELCOME and enjoy this!
Let me know if you guys ( if you read the book already) thought the same things and what your favorite moments in the story were. And if you haven’t read the book but are planning to, after reading this blogpost, what changed your mind? Tell me! I really wanna know
Finally, I want to say that this won’t be a boring book report but an insight (in case you haven’t realized) in what I felt when I read the book and what my favorite moments were.
And yes, again, I copied and pasted some things of my last book reviews in this one again. 
About the book itself
Dutch cover 
English/American cover

To be honest, I like the dutch cover more than I like the American one… I think it’s because there are people on the cover and the color is more attractive than the blue one….  the font is okay, like all books 🙂 Nothing more to say about it
The story =  This next part won’t be straightforward ( sorry to all my teachers :p ) but a concurrence(? I don’t know if this is the right word) of all my thoughts and feelings… sorry about that! )
Again this was a story that needed my full attention ( just like a green flower 😉 (http://belgiumgirlwithdreams.blogspot.be/2015/11/flowers-arent-always-what-they-seem.html ). The story is definitely NOT straightforward! It’s in bits and pieces to be honest. And that is the hardest part of the book. You really, really need to stay focused and return a few pages when you don’t know what year you’re in. But I like the idea of throwbacks in a book. It’s complicated to write, complicated to follow but so great when you finally read the whole story! You get a lot of background on the two main characters. And I’m so bumped they didn’t start a relationship! Now that would be a very romantic ending for the book. 
On the other hand, the ending is everything I’d expected. I’m glad he took the story to this “time”. You already knew how the characters evolved in the war… in the last chapter, you get to know what happend to the 2 main characters. 
Because I live in Belgium, we learn about the holocaust and other things about Germany. We always learned that the Germans were bad people and stuff like that. But after reading this book I know that not all Germans were bad. Some of them didn’t like the war at all, they didn’t want to fight or kill everyone they met or something like that. That’s another reason I really like the 2 main characters in the book. One of them, Werner, is German and the author really did an amazing job on his thoughts and feelings during the war. 
In my last bookreview about the green flower trilogy, I said that the story was slow at some points. But that wasn’t the case with this one. It just went on and on and on and on :p Doerr just got me hooked all the time! 
The theme… new! That’s the word to describe it. New. It was new because it’s a theme that not many authors have written about. The theme is not “the war” like most of you would think about now, it’s “blindness” and how Marie-Laure, the other main character, experiences the war as a blind person. It’s really amazing to read and understand something from a whole other point of view. (okay okay, bad choice of words)
But I stop here with my review. If you want to know more, just ask but I could go on about this book for another 3 hours I think.
My favorite moments in the book(not in that order)
* The first time “Dad” let Marie-Laure find her way back home from the museum by herself. That was a bit of a “What on earth do you think you’re doing?! Don’t let that girl wander by herself! You imbecile!” and “Come on Marie, you can do it!’ kind of moment for me 🙂
* When Werner met Frederick. Reminded me of my first day of high school
* Every birthday Marie had in the book. I want a dad like that! Loved the puzzles! 
* First time great uncle Etienne left his room to speak with Marie 🙂
* First time Werner and Marie met… Sparks, just spraks I tell you! 
* When Werner repairs his first radio
* Everything that had to do with Jutta! 
* When Werner was called to the office after making the motor on his own (just read the book!)
* The secret radio behind the closet
* The little place with the snails. I don’t know why but that’s something that stayed with me for a while.. And something I can imagine because of the description Marie gave herself 🙂 
Voila, that’s it for this week!
Untill next time!
bye!

Let’s do this!

Naomi:



When and how did we first meet?


First year of high school ( after first two years of middle school). It’s funny actually because I was supposed to be in an other group. Luckily I was stuck with you then. I remember that I sat next to you in a computerclass and said hi. So friendship was born.

I have to be honest, I remember the Netlog (yes, that was still a thing back then) request of melissa and after that from you :p but I don’t remember our first computerclass….

Can you describe me in one word?


Cat

seems legit XD

Do I have any nicknames?


Marge Simpson or Lisa Simpson. I just called you Margo because it’s already short enough.

Yes, thank you! that is actually my nickname that most of my friends from the fanfare use for me 🙂 so, spot on!

2 broke girls


Arrow/flash

Originals

Galavant

Vampire diaries

If I would go any place on earth, where would it be and why?


North-america, just because it’s awesome.

Spot on :p 

What would I watch? A Chick-flick, action, comedy or a horror movie?


Action with comedy.
Yup :p 


If I would be on a deserted island, what are the three things I could not live without? (besides food :p°


And air and water… 


Books

Music ( including instruments)

internet 

I agree… but what would I do with internet if I don’t have a computer or my phone with me?
Shannona:


When and how did we first meet?
Second day of college (first year Social Work), in the afternoon. We were part of the same class and we had to get to know each other in pairs. Because my partner left to go smoking, I asked Margo if I could come with her because I didn’t know anyone else. She said yes and then asked me what I would do if she said no? I just looked at her with my puppy eyes and made sure she never said no 😀
really? I don’t remember that either XD man I’m bad with meet-memories XD
But if you’re partner left for smoking… I’m guessing Fabi, Thomas or Fien? 

Can you describe me in one word?
Sound (figure that one out 😛 )
I can’t argue with that :p

Do I have any nicknames?
Margy 😛
hmmmm not that big of a fan 😦 

What is your favorite memory that we share?

That was soooo much fun!!

That’s more than 5! Umm, let’s go with: Arrow, Flash, Dancing with the Stars, Glee, Chicago Fire.

New York City; for all the people (celebrities)

yes,yes,yes, a thousand times yes! and for all the film locations… let’s go after Fantastic beasts? 


What would I watch? A Chick-flick, action, comedy or a horror movie?
Chick-flick, with Colton Haynes!

Nah.. I really like him as Roy. But I hate it when actors from a serie become movie actors… +  I only watch a chick-flick when I’m in the mood for it…okay that did sound weird.


If I would be on a deserted island, what are the three things I could not live without? (besides food :p
Harry Potter books, music and Pleute
