[HP] How will it end?
DUMBLEDORE IS GAY. I am exceedingly happy, and I laugh heartily at the people who are going 'But this is just a cop-out, she just said it after the fact because she didn't want people to call her a homophobe cause she had no gay characters!'

Dude, DH had so many clues that there was more to his relationship with GG, not to mention Elphias Doge's doting over his memory seemed a bit blinded-by-love-my-sweetheart-was-PERFECT. Even if you didn't pick up on it before, looking back at it with that knowledge it is pretty obvious that that's what she intended at the time she was writing it. And how awesome it is that she didn't just shove something awkwardly into the canon because she felt she had to 'represent'. Yes, their relationship WAS a pivotal part of what made Dumbledore who he was, but the books are told from Harry's perspective. Harry has proven himself fucking BLIND when it comes to noticing relationships right under his nose - why in the hell would he have picked up anything on a relationship from decades prior that Dumbledore seemed ashamed of and hurt by anyway? And the most important parts of the relationship, that it WAS vitally important to him, did come across, so the story didn't really suffer or lessen because of its absence.

Okay, there are a million things I could say about this, but there's my two cents. [gets down off soapbox]

Okay, this is kind of--no, really stupid and off-topic... but...

I'm writing a term paper on fandoms and slash, and was wondering if you'd mind me interviewing you about it. 9.9; You're not obligated at all XD;; I was just curious if you'd want to be interviewed.

Here's mah email... afaslami@gmail.com if you're up for it.

And, on-topic, YAY for eccentric gay wizards!

Dude, I'd totally be up for that!! I don't know how soon you wanted to do it, but I think I might be calling in sick to work [cough cough] tomorrow so I'd have lots of free time if you happened to be ready that early. XD Anyway, just tell me what you want me to do and I'll do it!

WOW that took me WAY too long to respond to. I blame school. Sorry!!

Thank you SO much!! Okay, um. Whenever you get the chance--it doesn't have to be right away!--could you answer these? Thank you!!

1) Do you write "slash"?
2) What kind? (m/m, f/f)
3) Favorite pair(s)? Why?
4) Why slash? (What drew you to it, why is it enjoyable for you, etc)
5) Why do you think others write slash? (For the same reasons you do? Or not?)

Thank you thank you!!

Also, that icon is adorable.
