haaaaaa I guess I'm just a salty old man lol (I am only one month older than Ezra but no I am /Ancient/)

but yeah like first Cursed Child (which I actually really liked and everyone else can fight me) and now this it's like I am LIVING again

I think one of the great things about this fandom is while it may experience lulls it never REALLY dies, like I follow plenty of blogs who post a bunch of HP content regularly, and they did so before CC and Fantastic Beasts were a thing yet. Plus due to the sheer SIZE of this fandom you're basically never going to run out of fics to read and art to admire so even if you're going back and reading something written in 2006 it can still feel fresh and exciting, yeah? HP is always the fandom I keep coming back to, where other shows and movies might have everyone move on after a while, things like knowing what house you're in is so like, intrinsic to who we are as a generation? It's pretty amazing.

And for all that Jo is a Problematic Fave(tm) good on her for not pulling an Anne Rice and letting us all run wild with her world so we have this great community to share in and enjoy <3

(now if we can just bring back the concepts of 'don't like don't read' and 'your kink is not my kink and that's ok' it'd be perfect. *sigh*)

Alli again

If you are one month older than Ezra and /Ancient/ then I am positively /Pre-historic/ :P

I sorta fell out of the fandom with the great LJ purge, hung onto a few blogs and have picked up a few newer ones since but I never really made the full transition to Tumblr. The Tumblr ship and kink police have always irked me; I'm a dumpster dweller of the Hydra Trash Meme (not sure if you ever played in the Marvel waters; feels like a lot of us HP nerds ended up there), so me and Tumblr have a complicated relationship. I do get so nostalgic though every time I go on an HP fic binge - I'll find one that I loved the hell out of in high school and feel like such an old lady.
