21. How has the HP fandom connected you to other fandoms, interests, or people?

I think I probably covered this on day 16 when I talked about how I'd participated in fandom over the years in rather a lot of detail - especially the people! But HP fanom has a sort of 6 degrees of separation thing with a lot of things I've discovered since. My Miranda love grew alongside my Rita love, and Miranda fandom has introduced me to even more people than I talked about in my last post. It also meant that I discovered the brilliance of Stephen Poliakoff - a man whose genius babies I would quite willingly have - and watched plenty of films I probably never would have were I not obsessed with Miranda. Loving characters in an RP often leads me to a fascination with the actor the character chooses for a PB, which has sparked my love for, among others, Isabelle Huppert, Jamie Bell and Christopher Plummer. And then there are things like friending [ profile] missfoxie based on our shared love of Isabelle, and my discovering Harriet Walter through her. So yeah. It's all very connected, and a lot of the people whose work I have enjoyed owe themselves loosely to my love of HP fandom.

(And then there's the other direction, of course, when you kind of half take on an RP character because you really so badly want to play someone with that PB *cough*Auntie Muriel! Wilhelmina Grubbly-Plank!*cough*), and then fall madly in love with the character. Crazy.)

And there's also [ profile] velmaneuwirth, who isn't a HP fan really at all, but who is someone very special to me who I probably wouldn't have met if it weren't for fandom? I mean, I'm not even entirely sure how we met, but I think it had something to do with mrsrobinsonanon and then, like, us getting talking over Miranda and you reading SHH and IDEK, but ♥, anyway.

OMG, how is that no one on my flist has posted this picture?!

It is, quite possibly, the most glorious thing I have seen in a long time.


In other, entirely random news, you know you're dedicated to your porny RP when you think long and hard (only a small amount of pun intended) about the actual spell-mechanics of a wizarding strap-on that lets the wearer feel through it, y/y? And when you think about what it must actually feel like to, y'know, get hard, for someone who's not used to it? And then when you spend all day trying to figure out what that kind of orgasm would feel like, too? Right? Dedicated. Not insane. Clearly. THIS SHIT IS IMPORTANT.
