So I just very, very, very recently learned that Hermione was correcting the accents on Ron’s spell in the scene where they’re learning how to make things fly. When I heard this line in Harry Potter, I thought it the quote went more like:
“It’s Levi-OH-sa, not Leviosaur!”
Because you know… Apparently my brain can’t comprehend stuff. HAAAA!!!! So here I was, all this time, thinking that this spell sounded like a dinosaur.
I recently went to Leviosa Con and thought I’d write up a post about it!
CONFESSION: My dear friend Janella (who you all probably know by now), wrote up her Leviosa post, and so, I had to write up one myself, so that I could one-up her!!! HA! Just kiddddddding!!! I COULD NEVER ONE-UP YOU, JUJUJUJUJUJUJU BEAR!!!!!! The real deal is that I was inspired to write my own post after I saw Janella’s!!!! 😀
(Okay, I did copy her title though, because it was WAAAY too good not to copy!!!! 😀 )
OH GOODNESS. I am TERRIBLE at staying on topic!!!!!!
Okay. Sooo.. Leviosa!!!!
It was sooooo much fun!!!! The best part, as always, is that I get to hang out with some of my amazing CPs/writing buddies, i.e. Maddy, Amanda, Akshaya, Axie, and Janella!!!! It’s kind of crazy the amount of silliness and goofiness and pure fun that goes on when we’re all together. But the good kind of crazy!! (I hope O__O!)
But it really was so much fun getting to meet and hang out with authors, meet new friends, and flail about Harry Potter and books in general!
Some of the crazy shenanigans that went on:
This very creepy photo Janella took for the sake of keeping up our Snap Streak.
A beautiful Nevada sunset.
Me, Maddy, and–OMG PERCY WEASLEY!!!!
A distinctly uncomfortable Juju Bear.
And of course, one of THE best parts of going to cons is being able to meet your favorite, favorite author!!! SUSAN DENNARD!!!! The most amazing person in the world!!!
Roshani Chokshi, another amazing, amazing author and person. So kind and gracious and absolutely so beautiful!
Sooz killin’ it on her panel about Book Friendships!
Leviosa was such a fun experience! I got to spend ridiculous amounts of time flailing to authors that I love and chatting with some new friends! I also got to pitch to some agents, which was an incredible experience (which I may delve into further in a separate post!). I had the greatest time with my friends and while you’d think that we’d be sick of each other, we’re strangely not! I loved getting to spend endless hours with m’buddies!!!
After Leviosa ended, Janella and Maddy and I drove back up to Salt Lake, where we had another few days of mischief and mishaps together! Basically we went CRAZY and did puzzles as we watched Austenland and played with Nabi the Husky and meandered around Salt Lake City!
Just the sheer amount of power that lies within these two intense stares…

Maddy and Janella looking oh-so-fine after our hike to Lisa Falls.
The faces that pretty sum up who we are.
Success s’mores with my CO-G, Janella!
Yay!! So that’s it for Leviosa!! Honestly, I’m not sure when the next shebang’s gonna be, but I miss these cult crazies already!! I’m not gonna lie–I PASSED out after Leviosa and definitely caught up on some very-much-needed sleep!!! It’s been nice getting back into routine and no doubt, we’ll be reunited sooner rather than later!!
Thanks for reading, guys!!! <3333
