Day 2

In your own space, share a favorite memory about fandom: the first time you got into fandom, the last time a fanwork touched your heart, crazy times with fellow fans (whether on-line or off-line), a lovely comment you’ve received or have left for someone.

Oh my, there's over a decade's worth of memories. I remember WIKTT, and I have to honor it because it brought me one of my very best friends, delayedpoet. It also brought me my very first HP RP, and I've subsequently found all of my best friends from that particular cascade of events. I remember my first ever convention, Portus courtesy of the brilliant somigliana. I remember the most vibrant years in college, where I was at my most productive, writing-wise. Particularly [Bad username: romancingthewizard]. This year modding interhousefest with katmarajade -- the good and the bad! I know I made her laugh with all my hair pulling antics. All my years of Misti, and how much I look forward to it every year.

I have so many good memories. I do wish it were a little more active. But honestly so long as we persist, it will be!

Fandom is my happy place but even more than that -- those of you I've met through fandom are my happy place. Those of you who are there for me, and continue to be there for me, in the good times and the bad. You are my favorite memories, even if you're not here anymore.

I used to roleplay all the time! I miss it, and I don't miss it. ;) Nah, I miss RPing with the right people. And there were a LOT of "right people", more so than wrong people. I wish I'd saved some of my roleplaying, a few got really meta. Maybe I'll see if I can find anything, it would be fun to post. (Under flock, of course, since it would partly be other people's writing.)

Fandom holds a special place in my heart, too. :)

OMG don't even get me started. It's TOTALLY with the right people. I've had some MAJOR lows this year with RP. If I didn't have my two steady partners, I'd probably have thrown in the towel, that's how bad some of it was. I really do love it though.
