that focused on fans as the "New Powers That Be" and talked about Harry Potter, the triumph of fandom, and the future of creativity. 
Harry Potter launched a phenomenon that’s seldom acknowledged and barely understood, but that’s as powerful and lasting as the books themselves: the first massive internet-born fandom. That fandom and its legacy have transformed today’s cultural landscape—creating new audiences, nurturing new billion-dollar media properties, and forever changing the way creators and consumers interact with each other and with the world.
It's been over 15 years since FictionAlley first went live, and we want to thank all of you for being a part of this fandom, and creating this legacy that continues to have fantastic and magical vibrations and unexpected impacts on so many things in pop culture, society and even politics. Let's keep changing the world!
