Sometimes I think that there's no suprises left in life. Then I read something like Harry Potter and the mystery of an academic obsession, and I'm delighted to find myself sitting in front of my computer monitor with my mouth gaping open.

It seems that our intrepid reporter, Carole Cadwalladr, attended Lumos 2006: A Harry Potter Symposium in Las Vegas. She found the participants to be overwhelmingly female. And some of them were into fan fiction...of a homoerotic nature.

Read this article and become educated on the history of slash fiction (as in Kirk/Spock). Which, honest-to-god, I already knew. But the Harry Potter connection was new and...intriguing.

Actually, I stumbled upon a piece of Potter fan fiction a while back. It involved Sirius, I think, getting it on with that old witch who lives somewhere around the Dursley's so she can watch out for Harry while he's staying with them. Though she wasn't really an old witch in the fan's story. She only appeared to be. She was actually young and good looking. And she wasn't a guy.

Thank you, for this link. You have all the best stuff.

I would do an Internet search to see if anyone else has thought of that, but I don't think I really want to know.

Oops. I looked. It's there.

I saw an interesting talk on HP Slash at the children's lit association conference. Most popular pairings? Harry/Draco and Snape/Draco. Yikes!

Later my friends told me that if I want to play the game better I should go to earn the kal geons, so I was very quickly risen to thirty levels, and then I started to play the game alone.I spend a lot of kal gold to treat myself in this game. However she was also very sad when I was hurt, she was sorry about this to me and I did not complain her at last. I was very happy and we went to earn the kal online geons to equip us to become strong. Today I play the game again and I can get a lot of kal online gold for her, I take her to upgrade and then add her experience. I have a lot of kalonline Geons and I want to give her in the game.
