Accio!Britain Convention

A fascinating account of the HP convention in Britain.

I mingle with the audience, who are now jabbering questions at each other. Is a seventh part of the soul of Lord Voldemort (the ultimate dark wizard) nestling in Harry Potter's scar? Will Harry die, Christ-like, at the end of the series, redeeming wizardry on a technicality? Is Dumbledore (the saintly headmaster of Hogwarts) God? Is Professor Sprout a lesbian? Do werewolves smell? And does anyone, actually, like Harry?

Poor Harry. It's not his fault he's a teenage boy, y'know.

My very personal favorite experience like that was when I was reading an academic anthropological book about science fiction conventions. (I don't remember the title but it was by the woman who wrote "Enterprising Women.") Anyway the writer was interviewing a group of geeks and was all "And tell me what is the way you use to pick your leader?" and the geeks are like "Um. We vote."
