connected me to people i may not
have otherwise met
for that i will be grateful
all the rps, all the future rps possibly;
the conversations and the jokes,
all the fanfictions and fan theories
every shade between—
hogwarts is ours,
as is the magic;
we’ve outgrown rowling and her prejudices
and her hatred and her unwillingness to grow—
hogwarts is ours
it always will be.
