I love you.
It’s been a long time since we last saw each other, so I wanted to get that out of the way. I don’t say it often, but I need you to know how I feel.
See, things just haven’t been the same since I left you. I know we’ve grown apart, but I can’t stop thinking about the good times; I keep reminiscing about the early days when you were all I could think about. You were the center of my universe.
Something happened when you retired and I found other fandoms, but I’ll never stop loving you. No other fandom has ever held my attention the way you did. No other fandom has become such a part of my life that I can’t go a day without thinking about it. No other fandom has inspired me like you have.
Y’see, you’re special. I found you when I was lonely, and you became my family. I found you when I thought I had nothing worthwhile to say, and you not only listened, but you encouraged me to tell you more. You gave me a safe space to practice my writing, where people would praise me when I did well, and tell me how to do better when I wasn’t working to my potential. You helped me find the most amazing friends I’ve ever had.
I love you, Harry Potter fandom. I love you so much. No matter how long I’ve been away or how far apart we are, you will always be the best thing that’s ever happened to me.
