Episode 87 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!
In our final episode discussing Dumbledore’s Army and the Year of Darkness by Andrew/thanfiction, we review chapters Chapters 20-25 and bring Andrew onto the podcast!
The fandom is an escape from real life that is primarily a text-based environment. We may speak to each other on Poufwa, but there’s no visual component and we’re denied the assistance of body language. Suffice to say, the interview was a bit awkward due to a remarkable series of crossed signals. When you think you’re defending a friend, reality gets blurred, and everything snowballs.
Not every experience with authors and their readers have been pleasant ones for us at PotterFicWeekly. I’m pleased to say that above and beyond, this one truly was. Any rockiness on the journey will soon be forgotten because the partnership ended on a very high note. I look forward to my future participation in the DAYD universe, including spending most of my Irish honeymoon curled in the fetal position!
