My 10-year LJversary is coming up this Friday.  Ten years!  I have [ profile] isiscolo to thank for my initial invite (back when one needed an invite to actually join).  Remember how you had to ask me twice, Isis,  after I turned you down the first time?  Sheesh!

Little did I know how much my life would change just by joining LJ and getting involved in Harry Potter fandom.  I thought that getting back in touch with my creative side by writing stories would be the main result.  Instead, the unexpected outcome was that I ended up making a ton of new and wonderful friends from all over the world.  I want to let you know how much this means to me.  I've been lucky enough to have met many of you, I've visited you in your homes or you've come to see me here in Denver.  I wouldn't trade the past 10 years for anything.  In fact, I still get together annually somewhere in the US with a group of women I met right here (and then met live at cons).  A couple of weeks ago we met up in Santa Cruz for a long weekend of fun and conversation, and I hope we continue until we're old and gray.  Or, well, older and grayer.

Even though I haven't written fanfic in a while, I still come here to read posts all the time.  Most of you have moved on to new fandoms or even no fandoms, and you don't show up here.  I understand.  Sometimes I've followed you into your new interests – manga, anyone?  I struggle to keep up with TV fandoms, though, since I don't have the patience to watch TV these days, but I still get a charge out of your enthusiasm for new things.

Anyway, I just wanted to let everyone know how much your friendship, encouragement, and love have changed me for the better.  *tosses confetti*
