21. How has the HP fandom connected you to other fandoms, interests, or people?
Ahahahaha... okay, so here goes my sob story. I am already attached to other fandoms and interests so I'm turning this question on its pretty little head and telling you how I got connected to awesome people in the HP fandom instead of how HP connected me to other things. I was all alone. UTTERLY. ALONE.

This isolation was either caused by ignorance or, and this is more likely, the overwhelming factor of how MASSIVE the Potter!fandom is. I didn't know where to start.

It seemed unfriendly.

And scary.

Sure, I had a few friends that were already HP fans (and H/Hr fans more specifically) but we met through other means like Stargate, Farscape, LOTR and other various fandoms and we could be chatty about Potter but our primary focus was not Potter it was more like omg! we has like for the same thing?! we must squee about ship and ILUSFMRITENAO.

But we never really had in depth discussion where there was dissection of character and motivation and what makes this work and holy crap did you catch that SYMBOLISM and IS THIS A REAL WORD kinds of discussions.

Then I did venture a bit to find groups

and fic

and comms

and I got sorted into houses

and accepted to various crowds but it always petered out after a while

I was disillusioned by all the lack of stimulation and craptastic movies (I'm looking at YOU OotP!) and got all

so I just

and was back to

and I was resolved to never never never get back into Potter fandom because it was all meh and left a bitter taste in my mouth. But then this really awesome thing happened. DEATHLY HALLOWS CAME OUT AND anythingbutgrey hosted a comment ficathon and a Potter Friending Meme and there, were the greatest people I have ever met

so now everything is

because I can talk about things like this

and not feel like I am stupid or a simpleton or wrong or any of those negative feelings I had previously associated with the Potter fandom because of you guys.

The End

Can I just say how much I love that you narrated this through Mean Girls gifs? SO MUCH LOVE FOR THAT MOVIE. :D

I've kinda always been in a little internet bubble myself. For a while I really wasn't even sure how to approach people on the internet or anything at all. I still feel like I'm a bit in a bubble, but at least it's expanded somewhat. :)

Also, I am listening to Mumford & Sons as I type this, and I am enjoying myself greatly. ♥

Most. Fun. Movie. Evar.

I'm very much so a bubble person also. It's nice to share with others but not every person that ever existed. It's nice to discover things on your own time.

YAY! I play them incessantly and always pick up on some phrase or lyric or mood and go: POTTER! I kinda wish I knew how to make vids... every damn track would be one.
