This feeling when you walk into big art supply stores …
right now I look like homer simpson staring at doughnuts or donuts or just… food.
When spoken word artist Brenna Twohy tells you that she is an unabashed devotee of all things “Potterotica” — erotic fiction based in the magical universe of Harry Potter — your response probably shouldn’t be that her taste is “unrealistic.”
I’m happy to be getting to the point where I don’t have to feel weird about enjoying fanfiction, or having written a bunch of it. Partly it’s that the fandom experience has become more broadly shared. Partly it’s that I stopped giving a shit.
And as for why I like the porny sort of fanfiction, see above. She says it better.

YES FANFIC EROTICA IS ACE!…BUT
they are all teens around 15-18, even if she only imagines them as 18 years old kids, it’s still bloody young adults/teens. and some fics are about Snape and Harry/teacher/Student and all that does not sit well with me.

I would not want to read that. I want grown ups XD. Nobody should get off reading about young teens having dirty sex, even worse when you are over 25/30 or something…
not judging, but judging…my2cents.
