Back in the day, JKR was extremely open about the fact that there was tons of lore behind the scenes she could not address in the books. She couldn鈥檛 address it, btw, because it was a known fact in the publishing industry that young adult novels had to top out at like 250, maybe 300 pages because kids didn鈥檛 have the attention span for anything longer. And early HP was middle grade, which is the next age category down. She was only able to start addressing deeper lore halfway through the series because that鈥檚 how long it took to convince her publishers it wouldn鈥檛 scare readers away.(I distinctly remember another, long-established children鈥檚 fantasy author dedicating a book to JKR because the success of HP was the reason said author was able to negotiate an extra 100 pages into that novel.)In the mean time, she was in a ton of interviews. She was absolutely the most open author about her worldbuilding. If a fan asked her a question and the answer wasn鈥檛 a spoiler, she answered it every time. JKR was famous for this. She was worshipped for it practically. I remember on the early internet boards, when one fan had the chance to meet her in a Q&A we would all pile together and come up with as many questions as possible. Ask what year Beauxbatons was founded. Ask who the ghost of Hufflepuff is. Ask McGonagall鈥檚 age. Ask Lily鈥檚 maiden name. Were all the Marauders in Gryffindor? Which of Gilderoy Lockheart鈥檚 stories were stolen and which were flat out made up?We collected these interviews, we held them as canon, we altered our fanfic to accommodate what she revealed. And then, all of a sudden, that wasn鈥檛 what the fans wanted any more. When she finished HP, she said she was done, that she鈥檇 move on to other projects. No one wanted any of her non-HP stuff. No one cared. So she came back to build the Fantastic Beasts verse, with exactly the same policy about answering fans that we had welcomed back in the early 2000s.So, like, you don鈥檛 have to enjoy what she鈥檚 doing. The fan community has changed, and that鈥檚 fine. But JKR contributed a lot to the children鈥檚 fantasy genre and to the way fandom operated, and we should at least acknowledge that.

invitations, how to post, all of it. Chinese fans deeply want to learn 
how to use AO3. The difference between Lofter鈥檚 posting system and AO3鈥瞫
