Prepare yourselves - the new "Harry Potter" movie is coming! Except, well... Harry Potter's not in it, per se. In case you missed the news, "Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them" is centered around Newt Scamander, the great-grandfather of Luna Lovegood's husband.

It's been about two hours since it was announced. Naturally, the internet proceeded to immediately excrete building materials, as is most appropriate in this situation. There will soon be much speculation flooding in about anything and everything. Based on what we know, (that Scamander is probably British, will be in his mid to late 20s, and that the movie will be set in New York in the 1920s) we thought we'd cut out some of the work for you guys right now, and name the seven actors most likely to be linked to the role of Newt Scamander by the end of today. You're welcome.

A firsthand account of the madness that is the GISHWHES scavenger hunt.

Well, we’ve hit Thursday in Hell Week, and this is the busiest day for the New York branch of Team TheFandomLife. We regret all things immensely. Also, hummus is delicious. As I was out most of the day, the chronicle will be presented in the form of a bunch of lists, notes and texts I’ve found on my phone. Memory loss, sleep deprivation, confusion and a lack of context prevents me from expanding upon most of these notes… but it’s okay, because it’s not as if all my previous posts on GISHWHES made much sense.
