Slytherin from day one.

Came into the fandom shortly before the first movie. Never been in a fandom with that level of unbelievably insane drama before or since. And it all turned out to be in some way, connected! If you didn't know that (I didn't) you'd do something intended to be casual or innocent, and someone else would react in a way which seemed really really disproportionate. And that was because nobody trusted anyone at that point, there were paranoia land mines everywhere.

I still don't know if I want to deanon here.

But I hope us older fans can guide the young ones/newbies away from that particular cliff.

I do love that the HP fandom is so big and busy and well established enough that people just jumped right in with the kinky AUS, like there wasn't even a typical ramp up to it
