Do you guys ever think about how lucky we are?

We get to read novels that other people will never know existed. We get to know authors before they hit the mainstream.

We get feedback from like-minded people who are 90% of the time gushing over how much they love our work.

We get to watch ourselves grow as writers, laugh and cry with our favorite characters in ways most people will never get to experience, and discover new writers who become our friends.

Guys.

Fan fiction RULES.

Everyone prepared for Ginny Weasley meta? CUZ HERE I GO

ladyloveandjustice:

Okay so I was remembering all the early fandom nonsense criticizing Ginny for breaking up with boys for what they saw as silly reasons (they were not, and anyone has the right to end a relationship if it’s not working for them) and it occurred to me how Ginny refuses to put up with anyone giving her shit or not respecting her wishes or condescending to her can be directly traced back to her experiences with Tom Riddle.

He was, in many ways, Ginny’s first relationship. He looked down on her- there is no doubt about that since he openly mocked her to Harry. He was the only one in control in the relationship and he used that control to abuse, manipulate and possess her. Ginny was so lonely and felt so hopeless that she completely gave this much older guy she didn’t even know anything about everything he needed to exploit and control her. There were no boundaries in this relationship because Ginny was too young to feel the need for them. She gave and he took. She was treated in a way she did not in the least bit deserve. It was the very definition of an abusive relationship. 

So is it really a surprise that after this horrific experience, Ginny developed very clear boundaries? That the instant a guy doesn’t respect her wishes, or treats her in a way she doesn’t deserve, she shuts him down completely or ends that relationship? That is more than just Ginny being strong willed (which is great), it’s also self-preservation developed from her desire not to end up in an abusive relationship again.

Look at Ginny’s three relationships:

Fandom is, essentially, the collective refusal of thousands of people across the world to be passive about the media they are exposed to.

I just wish people from the outside would realize how great it truly is.

The Muggle Studies classroom is always locked. In fact, there are few rooms in the castle with as much magical protection. There’s a special password needed to enter that’s distributed carefully to the year’s students on the first day of classes. They are sworn to secrecy and, to date, no one has broken that trust.

There’s more to this security than just fear of vandalism, though there has been that. Charity Burbage spent more than her fair share of time scrubbing nasty messages off her office door when she first started teaching. For a while it was a point of pride that she used her own effort to remove the hateful words. Then came the morning when she fell asleep next to a bucket of soapy water and was nearly late for her first lesson of the day. After that, she cast a Repelling Charm on her office and tried not to feel guilty about it.

The real reason for the layers of charms wrapped around the classroom is what goes on after hours.  If you were to stroll by on any given night. you may see a tearful first year or a stressed out fifth year or even a cool and confident prefect strolling up to the door.  You’d see them execute a complex set of wand patterns, whisper a word, and look around furtively before they enter. 

If you were to follow them in (and I would not suggest this, for the room has its own way of dealing with intruders), you’d see students of all Houses and years, talking and studying and reading. But you may miss what they have in common: they’re all Muggle born. This classroom is the after-hours refuge of those who feel as if they don’t belong, those who find themselves trapped between the magical and the mundane, their parents and their classmates. Here there are shelves of magazines whose covers don’t move; there are stacks of textbooks on science and math, heavy tomes of Shakespeare and thin volumes of poetry.

In the corner you may see Justin Finch-Fletchley studying for his A-levels. He had promised his mum that he would at least try for them, even if he wasn’t sure he would ever leave the magical world. Sometimes Hermione Granger joins him, and they teach each other calculus and world history and pore over the periodic table. 

By the fireplace you could find that tearful first year sitting with the calm prefect, their heads bent close. You might hear the first year pour out his heart, outline his fears, confess his insecurities. The prefect could respond in kind, admitting to the knot of confusion that lies underneath her placid exterior. They might then take out their wands and practice a spell, or pull out a child’s fairy tale collection and read aloud.

If you were a Muggle-born, this might be your sanctuary. It might be the place you miss most when you go home for the summer and try to fit your square peg into a world of round holes. It might be what you defend at the Battle of Hogwarts, fighting for your right to be confused and not fit in. It might be why you come back as the new Muggle Studies professor, why you create an after-hours class to help others get their A-levels and apply to university.

But then again, it might be just another classroom.

(written and submitted by the lovely ppyajunebug. There’s a tremendous sweetness to this that I find very appealing, something comforting about knowing that the Muggle-borns have their own space. This blog often explores the horrifying and strange, but sometimes it’s nice to consider good things, as well.)

Does anyone else find it kind of heartbreaking that the epilogue of Harry Potter takes place in 3 years? As of September 2016, we’ll have passed the entire timeline of Harry Potter…

How to like problematic things

starvedforjustice:

  • know they’re problematic
  • know why they’re problematic
  • don’t dismiss people’s feelings/dissatisfaction with them
  • don’t silence people when they’re talking about the problems in your media, because your enjoyment is not more important than that discussion.

(( Here’s a compilation of all the genderbends I’ve edited so far. :) After doing these, I went back to my “Disney Princes” and re-edited them slightly, so these are the new versions. (Yeah, I know the guys still look younger than the girls, sorry. XP lol) ))

FanLib remains the most histrionic example of an attempted (and failed) commercial co-optation of fandom, arguably overshadowing the discussion and analysis of more covert and complex instances of corporate attempts to construct their own fannish spaces for profit. My concern, as fans and acafans continue to vigorously debate the importance or continued viability of fandom’s gift economy and focus on flagrant instances of the industry’s attempt to co-opt fandom, is that the subtler attempts to replicate fannish gift economies aren’t being met with an equivalent volume of discussion or scrutiny.
