Changes coming for LU!/ Facebook Fan Contest/Lu hits 500 followers on Twitter/ Twitter Contest
Just wanted to give you guys the heads up!
There are going to be several changes coming to LU in the following weeks!
First off there will be a new layout!
We've had this one for quite awhile and we need a change of scenery!
Never fear, the lovely Anna over at Lunazul Graphics (which made the current layout) will be designing it for us! It's sure to be amazing!
There's going to be some new content and some cutting or rather morphing of some old content.
Mostly I'm talking about the OTM's instead of having Fiction and Video of the month we will now have recommended Fiction and Video pages.
It's just too hard to keep up with making all the graphics and searching out new content for these every month! Hopefully you will welcome this change.
As always you can submit fiction and video to be included in these sections!
The Site of the Month will stay intact and hopefully with just one graphic to make I can keep it up to date as well as keeping other sections of the site more up to date!
Speaking of up to date!
We have updated the calendar with a beautiful July Graphic made by our very talented Sarah! Check that out on the sidebar! ---->>
We have also updated the Facebook Fan Contest!
It has been completely re-vamped so please visit that page to find out details on how you can win 25$ for HP tickets or a 10$ Barnes & Noble gift card!

We're working very hard to get the site up to date with all current pictures! If there are some you'd like added please let us know by e-mailing us at Staff@loveunchained.com!
Rupert has been featured in the July issues of Attitude, Recognize, and That Magazine!
Along with the gorgeous pics of our favorite red head we also get a noteworthy interview.
Rupert spoke in Attitude magazine about bullying in school and how he learned to overcome it.
We used to do school plays all the time. Because we didn’t have any girls I used to get all the female roles.
I was the youngest in the class and my voice was the last to break, so I was usually playing the girl parts in the wigs and the dresses.
I got a little bit of stick for that. It’s that weird school period when kids can be quite cruel.
You’ve got to stick it out and just be strong.
He also told us a bit about his fear of spiders.
I'm arachnophobic. It's really affected my life. I check my shoes every time I put them on. I check my bed sheets and pillows.
I'm going to Australia in a few weeks. I've never been before. Spiders have always stopped me.
And finally some thoughts on Gingers.
I never really got bullied for my red hair. I knew some kids who really struggled with it. It’s ridiculous. There’s such a big stigma about ginger hair.
People think you’re geeky or this or that. I’ve never thought about dyeing it. It’s just part of who I am.
Emma has also been behind the flash with Mariano Vivanco for some DH Pt 2 promos and with Czech Republic's Marie Claire. You can find thumbs for them below as well!

Pottermore Revealed! Screen Magazine and Architectural Digest Photos added!
Pottermore is essentially a way for Rowling to give us more of the Potter world without writing more books. It's sort of an interactive reading site. You will be able to get sorted and follow along with your house throughout the first book (Philosopher/Sorcerer's Stone) and eventually all seven books as well. It's not a RPG per say, but somewhat close. It's a way of immersing yourself in the world and learning new things about the world we all love so much!
You can watch highlights from J.K.'s press conference below:
Pottermore is set to open this October, however, you can visit Pottermore today and register to participate in an online scavenger hunt. This will take place July 31st (Harry and J.K. Rowling's Birthday). The reward for the scavenger hunt will be early access to the site! So hurry up an register!
Here's what J.K. had to say about her new site.
"I wanted to give something back to the fans that have followed Harry so devotedly over the years, and to bring the stories to a new generation," Rowling revealed. "I hope fans and those new to Harry will have as much fun helping to shape Pottermore as I have. Just as I have contributed to the website, everyone else will be able to join in by submitting their own comments, drawings and other content in a safe and friendly environment. Pottermore has been designed as a place to share the stories with your friends as you journey through the site."
"This is free," added Rowling, who has sold more than 450m copies of the Potter books worldwide. "You don't have to pay to get extra materials, you don't have to buy a single thing. That was really important to me. This was about the 'give-back'."
Although Rowling said it was "impossible to overstate what Harry Potter means to me", Pottermore will be the only way fans will be able to get fresh material from Rowling about Harry's world. "I'm pretty sure I'm done on the novel front," she said.
The July issue of Japan's Screen Magazine features many never-before seen promotional photos from DH Pt2! Those have been added to our gallery as well as some set pictures and concept art from the upcoming film, taken from the June issue of Architectural Digest.
