I don't know why I've been reminiscing over the glory days of the Digimon fandom today; it's been years and years since last I had anything to do with it.
But I did come to the conclusion today that while HP fandom is a whole hell of a lot bigger than the Digimon fandom ever were, it's recycling many of the same kertuffles and, believe it or not, is actually pretty vanilla in comparison. HP kids? Ancient compared to the Digi-destined. And there's no digitalised sentient mutant plant creatures either.
Good times, good times. And by good I mean crazy.
