Can I just add my voice to the chorus of "WOO HOO"s that JK Rowling says DUMBLEDORE IS GAY! :)

Fandom was right! :) (Not that I'm in HP fandom, but still!)

I'm so dumb at seeing this things...
I wasn't expecting it, but it sort of makes sense. And though I don't really care about Dumbledore's sexual preferences (it's not like he's a hot guy I can slash, after all) it's nice that such an important character is revealed to be gay. It's good for the cultural progress, I think.

But there's a thing I don't like. I don't want JKR starting to say out loud everything that was implied in her books: this way she keeps changing the canon and diminishing the mysteries that I loved. And ok, she's the inventor and "owner" of canon, but still... What if next year she decides to tell us that Luna is McGonagall's secret daughter or something like that? Yeah, I'm probably being paranoid. Still, I wish she would stop.

oh, btw, I've just noticed you friended me! Thank you! *twirls*

I think it's a very good thing. It's like finding out that one of the Star Wars characters was gay! (Although, I totally grew up with those, so I can't ever get into slash in that fandom! Not Luke and Han, anyway!)

Hmm, I get you on her retroactively explaining herself. Again, it's a bit like George Lucas tinkering with Star Wars after the fact. I think the work should stand on its own, true. But I don't mind knowing more of what she had in mind.

And yes, I was looking at my friends and realized I hadn't friended you back yet and decided it was overdue! :) ♥
