art, spinoffs, and how to make a magic letter

eee!

leyna55 has made a GORGEOUS drawing of Slytherin Sam -- http://leyna55.livejournal.com/2508.html

And a couple of people have asked in the comments -- if you would like to play in the Old Country universe, totally dive right in, whether you want to do missing scenes or sequels or alternate versions, anything. I am all over that stuff. ♥ joannindiw has already been noodling some snippets in the comments here!

And I thought I would write up how I did the magic letter and cursor, for anyone who is curious -- the basic image-swapping part is really not that hard: I did it using Photoshop CS3, but if you can make an animated GIF icon, you can do this. :D I used a testing page for the certificate which you can open up and use "view source" on, to see all the code in place.
