I was going to wait and post two days in one (I'm really not used to post daily!), but I figured, it should at least try to make this challenge as it's supposed to do. :)

Day 2

In your own space, share a book/song/movie/tv show/fanwork/etc that changed your life. Something that impacted on your consciousness in a way that left its mark on your soul. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.



I'm going to be obvious and talk about Harry Potter. It absolutely and definitely changed my life. Harry Potter and the Philosopher Stone was the first book I read entirely in English. I loved it, I was absolutely enchanted and then I managed to get the rest (CoS, PoA, GoF up till then) delivered. I remember coming on line to know more about the series while waiting for OotP to be realised, and that's how I found fanfiction and fandom.

Not only the HP books was a series that made me dream, I also found an amazing community behind. I felt I was part of something, and once I found fandom—well, the change was literally life-changing. I'm here, all these years later, still getting to know amazing people, making some of the most important friendships of my life, and ultimately becoming my constant happy place.

I know this same experience is probably shared by many of you, which makes it even more special in a way. <3
