|My life is rapidly going full circle.

Something about this whole sad-about-losing-boy-life-sucks mood has made me start reading Draco Malfoy/Ginny Weasley fanfiction again... I know, I feel like I should be ashamed. But I'm rapidly realizing why I loved fanfiction and why I loved Harry Potter so much in the first place :P I think it was going to see the last movie on my birthday, that really spurred this on. Was reading all my old favourite stories and it has not only amused me to no end but made me somewhat pensive.
The D/G fanfiction community seems to have really hit it's stride somewhere between 2004 and 2006, it was huge. Since the last book was released it kind of dwindled and slowed down, people stopped updating their works or just moved on. I find it kind of unsettling, to see these unfinished works just sitting there, the same as they were when I read them when I was 14 and the stories haven't been updated or finished. And the authors just aren't interested anymore. All the loose ends, it just makes me sad.
In related news, I was browsing my old Portkey.org account searching for more fanfiction and in my links I listed my blog as my super old Angelfire one. Which I had totally forgot even existed. That I wrote in from when I was 13 til when I started my LJ. I always looked back on those early teenage years thinking I was kind of mature and down to earth, and well spoken. Well, it turns out I was a complete moron, and talked about the most inane things possible.
