H/G News and Updates


After six years (or possibly several sunlit days), hpgw_otp is closing its doors. The Harry/Ginny community has always been a friendly and enthusiastic one, and it's been an honor and a pleasure to serve as your newsletter editors. Together, we've watched our ship grow from an exciting idea into a canon reality. It's been an amazing time, the best two fangirls could hope for, but now it's time for us to move on. Thank you for your fanfic, your artwork, your theories and discussions and most of all, for your love. We couldn't have done it without you.

For Harry/Ginny news and updates, we recommend obhwf_weekly.

Re: can i ask something?

Don't worry, we never intended to delete the community! It just won't be updated any more.

Ahaha I'm looking at the early issues, so lovely! There are so many recs to essays on "why Harry and Ginny should get together", usually referencing some bizarre myth/metaphor ... the glory days! ♥

Thank you both (and Mary too). You've added to fandom in so many ways--not just through this community, but as incredibly positive, supportive fans and wonderful authors to boot. I hope that we will all continue to cross paths as the years roll on.

I am sorry to hear this!! Then again, I'm one the many who have totally loved the fandom but in the past couple years my fan fiction reading/writing has dropped significantly. However, I do want you all to know that this particular group was pretty much my favorite out of all the fan-fic sites. You all did an excellent job in finding fics from various sources, and they were always good recommendations. I hope you all will at least keep the site up for archival purposes. Thank you for sharing your devoted fan fic time with other fans like me.

When I was still a newbie and looking for a community that supports my OTP - I found this wonderful, informative comm. You've made my fandom journey/ experience worthwhile. Thank you!!!

I am so sorry to see this comm closing. I was very much a late-comer to the HP fandom (started reading the series in late 2008), and I was so excited when I found this comm to keep me abreast of the Harry/Ginny goodness! So thank you for being here and helping a newbie out!
