So, I recently went to see this little movie called Hoot. The previews looked pretty cute: there were baby owls, boat rides through beautiful Florida waterways, and teenagers with adorable chemistry together.

Then I saw the movie, and yay! It had even more of that stuff. It made me quite happy. But most other people hadn't seen it, and almost no one seemed to be talking about it. I looked to see if there were any LJ comms, or a section on ff.n (I shudder to admit I've been searching there recently, but I have. *shudder*), or anything, and there weren't. Surely someone will make one soon, I thought. But no one did.

That's why I'm doing it.

Welcome to this community.

I just ordered the book off Amazon, but it hasn't gotten here yet. I'll probably get the movie when it comes out on DVD, because I like owning movies that make me happy, so I can rewatch them and be happy some more. And I've been telling all my friends to watch it, too, though mostly they've been ignoring my advice because they are lazy and silly. And on a personal note: in conclusion, text.

You are very awesome to have made this comm. I need to a) see the movie again and b) buy the book. Both so that I may get a better grasp on the characters and write the fic. Let me know how the book is!

Too cool.

If you write fic, I'll read it!

The book got here last night, and I flicked through it a bit, but I won't read it until I'm done with the one I'm currently reading.

Definitely text.

Yes, I saw the movie and wanted to see it again, whilst forcing several other friends to go too. But, unfortunately, my theater sucks and the movie is gone. I will, however, make them watch the DVD. :D

The movie left theaters so quickly! It is to cry. Hopefully the DVD will be out soon.

When is the DVD supposed to come out? The only place showing it around here is somewhere in Arlington :\

I saw that you downloaded it or something, though. Yay, another convert!

I spent the whole movie laughing and grinning and just doing little hand flails. It's too too too adorable, and then I walked home smiling like a loon. It is crazy how slashy it is!

Yes. I just watched the movie and I couldn't help but be impressed by the slashiness. I'll have to read the book next. So... is anyone writing fanfiction for it yet? I can't find any. :(

I just checked on ff.n last night and found two book-fics, but I didn't actually read them because they didn't seem too good. And they weren't slash, either. I don't think anyone's gotten around to ficcing yet, though kristiinthedark said she might. The movie seems to have fallen under most people's radars, since it was only in theaters for two minutes.

Aww, I looked at your info page and saw you have Sam/Martouf listed as an interest. I don't go in much for shipping in SG-1, but that's the one ship that really did make me sad to not see more come out of it! He was so sweet. I think there could have been a real storyline there if they'd gone with it. ...Oh, now I'm making myself disappointed.

Yeah. I've looked around and haven't found much in the department of fanfics, let alone slash. It saddens me greatly. :(

And yes, I like Sam/Martouf and there is a very disappointing lack of coverage on the pair. There was so much potential there... And then Martouf died. I actually cried during that episode -- my dad thought I was insane.
