I don’t want to see you go but it’s not forever.
REASONS WHY A VERY POTTER SENIOR YEAR MADE ME FEEL ALL THE FEELS.
Do you remember reading the last Harry Potter book for the first time? That feeling knowing that it was the end. Knowing that you will never again have to anticipate another book and read any new adventures? You were truly saying goodbye to something that was a really big part of your life. You were left with this sort of hollow feeling inside because you knew nothing more was going to fill it up. That’s kind of how I felt after watching AVPSY.
But its not just because its ‘an end of an era’ or even because its the last time we’ll ever see the A Very Potter… world. Its mainly because, my gosh, over the last few years, ever since watching that very first starkidpotter video, my life changed. I did things I never thought I was capable of doing. I made friends with people I would never meet in normal circumstances from the most unlikely places.
I’d like to share with you a personal little timeline:
September 2009 Discovered A Very Potter Musical on youtube
August 2010 Joined tumblr
June 2011 Met with Marta and Vanessa from tumblr in London. Stalked Savoy hotel to glimpse Glee Cast members but specifically Darren Criss from Starkid. Met admins of DCDUKST, subsequently joined Dapper.
July 2011 Saw Darren Criss and Joe Walker perform live. Nearly died.
August - February 2011 Started organising Darren Criss FlashMob UK. Met some awesome Darren fans. Became close friends with some of them.
February 2012 Performed flashmob on Darren’s birthday (in the fucking snow!). Helped invent and played the very first game of Darren Criss Ring of Fire (also known as DROF).
May - August 2012 Started organising StarKid FlashMob UK. Met even more fans of Starkid. Made even more friends.
August 2012 Performed flashmob
NOW Organising two flashmobs made me realise my potential in events and marketing and now I feel that this could be a great career path. Most of all, I’m still close friends with people that I have met because of Starkid within the last three and a half years.
I have a lot to thank Starkid for. Thanks to them, I’m more sure of myself than I have ever been. Thanks to them, I have a path that I feel I am capable of taking. Thanks to them, I wouldn’t have met some of the most talented and wonderful people anyone could ever know. Thanks to them, I’ve made friends for life. So watching A Very Potter Senior Year, the final installment of StarKid’s A Very Potter… series, really meant more to me than I thought it ever would and even though I feel kind of hollow. I feel okay. Because of all these things that I’ve gained because of Starkid.
"Okay is wonderful"
