Background for those of you who know me from non-Harry Potter fandoms:

[ profile] hp_reunion is happening for the first couple weeks of November to encourage those of us who've fallen out of HP fandom to reconnect.  There are posts to say hello, to discuss the books, to reminisce about lost friends, to squee over great memories, and so on.  It began on Saturday.  Come say hello if you haven't already!  It's great to see so many familiar names.  Here's my roll call post.

Am I surprised that I missed posting with the other returnees until tonight?  Nope, it's kinda my new normal.

This post also links back to my very first LJ post made in August of 2003.  HP was my first online fandom, so my first LJ post was all about my new love, squee, squee!  I'd been given an LJ code by [ profile] isiscolo.  She found me through my very first HP fanfic (a gen Snape thing), and being the encouraging, nurturing person she is, she gently brought me towards the light.  Thank you, my dear!  She also was one of the best fic betas ever for nearly all of my stories after that, even though the H/D pairing was definitely not her favorite (or second-favorite, or probably ninth, either).  Now that's going above and beyond!

My First LJ Post  I say hello and link to my first story.  An auspicious beginning, right?

Squee! It's so cool to see so many people posting links or excerpts from their first posts or their first HP-related posts. :-)

I never saw this, because I joined LJ a year later. But your first story was about Snape! How did I miss this?

I'm at work, but am totally bookmarking this to read later.

It's kind of a cheat because I took this story and wedged it into A Thousand Beautiful Things. It became clear that this was the same Snape, so I plagiarized myself.

I think I've got nearly all of mine there now. It's a great place to snag stuff for Kindle reading, which I do a lot now.

What a lovely post and concept! I'm so glad that I happened to check out LJ for the first time in months. I'm not sure I'll be able to find my first HP post anymore, though. At least not from my phone. :-/
