Thank you for reminding me why I haven't tried to finish those two WIPs I have in the Harry Potter fandom.

At the risk of sounding too much like a Precious Princess, especially after I started Children of Mars, I attracted a lot of virulent partisans who slammed me every time I posted anything, because they didn't like the way I portrayed their special favorite baby.  One of the reasons I stopped writing Harry Potter fanfic was I was just tired of dealing with it.  I had to delete so many anonymous comments full of profanity and slurs that posting a new fic or a new chapter was something I dreaded instead of looked forward to.  Every so often, I get comments on my old Harry Potter fics, and most of  those comments are absolutely lovely and can brighten up my whole day, but sometimes they're that same old nastiness.

Good to know I'm not the only one who stopped writing for Harry Potter because it had gotten to the point where I was opening reviews with a sense of dread rather than anticipation. I was getting flamed for not character-bashing, among other things.

(Never posted on your journal before; I've been more of a silent follower, but this one hit really close to home.)

Same here. The Harry Potter fandom is like no other.

Silent lurking is okay by me. I do my fair share on other journals.
