It has been way too long since I've been here! And what do I find? Recent posts from the old crew! Happy New Year indeed Cap'n and shipmates!
Plus a big welcome to reality99! It's a shame you've found us at are quietest spell, but hopefully that's what we need to set the ships a-sailing again!
Speaking of which, Jon I 100% agree with your post about shipping R/E. I still think these two would make a cute couple but given how long it's been since I saw them interact - seriously, how has it been that long?! - I don't feel I can legitimately link them romantically any more. I hope Rupert and Emma are very happy and I as always am eager to see what they do next. I miss hearing stories of their friendship and I hope they and the whole HP gang continue to be as strong friends as they were.
Your comment about 5 years has made me realise that in September it will be 10 years since I joined this forum. That's a whole decade. That's nearly half my life. That's how long it took to film the entire HP series. How has this happened? It's crazy to think I have known some of you longer than I've known some of my real-life friends. I may not visit so often and the community may not be so lively as it once was but I will always have an especial fondness for this place and its members. Thank you all for giving me a place to escape and enjoy HP for so long. <3
