Okay y'all: I love all of you.

I love the people who are getting called "hysterical" -- and getting pissed off at being called hysterical, when we're a community of (mostly) women and hey, look, that phrase has been used to keep women down for more'n a hundred years.

I love the people making animated macros.

I love the people responding from their RP journals. In character. Oh, Neville!

And the people realizing that this is bringing HP fandom back together - must be the apocalypse.

I love the people with with plans and the people critiquing the plans.

I love the people quoting "Hoist the Colors" at length -- all eleventy-billion of you, in all the fonts you're using, no matter how much I'm like "wtf? what does that have to do with anything?"

Also I love the people making Les Miserable references, and asking if MooCards are like cake, and filking, and happily doing what they do with pop culture. And doing what they do with words and parsing statements to the press to figure out what people are really saying. I love the close readings.

I love the people posting and commenting on the news post, so much that I can't even keep up with the notifications by skimming. (Even if some of you are kinda trolling and making me wince.) I love the people making friends in the middle of the storm of comments.

For serious, you guys. Fandom = kinda awesome. 4,200 plus comments on that news post. People phoning and yelling and shouting and talking to the press and defending their friends and defending people they don't even know and making icons.
