punk chucks, converse - chucks, chucks
Behind the cut, what happens when I start contemplating the fandom and what a map of this place would look like.

Edit: version 3.1

This map is heavily biased.

To quote The HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy:
"... it has many omissions and contains much that is apocryphal, or at least wildly inaccurate..."
I thought it might bring some amusement into peoples' lives. *grin*

NB: if you want to share this, please link here and spread the love! Remember, this is all tongue-in-cheek; if we can't laugh at ourselves, then we're too caught up in it.

ETA: Some people have been asking, so I'll go ahead and answer here.
  • The "Violent Shippers" has to do with people who are so adamant about their non-canon ship that they would break someone's kneecaps to prove their point.
  • Snape - White Hat vs. Snape - Black Hat is the "Is Snape Really Evil?" debate.
  • Ron is Dumbledore (aka Knight2King theory) was actually noted by JKR on her website.
  • Beautiful Days is an amazing fic by asyndeta about the story of Merope Gaunt. It is, as far as I'm concerned, practically canon.

*dies* I love the MPreg and Suethors out on the island by the sea monster. Great idea.
24th-Jun-2006 03:45 pm (UTC)
*laughs* I'm glad you enjoyed it.
24th-Jun-2006 02:59 pm (UTC)
Lol really cool!! the part of the violent shippers really made me laugh xD
24th-Jun-2006 03:46 pm (UTC)
Hahaha, awesome. I was actually a bit worried that people would think that I meant something besides "violently defending their ship," but so far it seems to have been understood all around. *grin*

25th-Jun-2006 01:48 am (UTC)
this is awesome, i'm so gonna link to it!

i must say, having triosburg next to h/hrville makes me a bit happier, but tis still quite a hike from my home on what i've dubbed the icon-maker peninsula

& the bermuda triangle (or whatever you'd call it) of crossovers = genius, as is having the mpreg'ers waaaay out in the water
25th-Jun-2006 02:07 am (UTC)
*laughs* Thank you! Please do!!

Hee. Part of the fun of this is seeing how all over the map I myself am. I tend to make my home in the Triosburg, Weasleytown, Gintomville, and Siremuston corner of the realm. However, I also have a wanderlust on the fanfic author/fanartist/icon-maker half of the continent.

I have gotten so many frequent flyer miles going to Meetupland, RP world, and Cosplay Nation. *grin* I occasionally foray down into the Theorists continent, but it is a strange place. Mostly I go for speculating, nothing too intense.

Hee. Thank you! I was going for a vortex kind of effect, but the bermuda triangle is an apt assignment! Hahahaha, yes, I keep getting requests to off Mpreg and Suethor islands. I hope that the sea-dragon will be enough to keep them at bay.

Ooh, class!
... I've got a hell of a commute! XD
I just adore the Crossover Vortex. ♥
25th-Jun-2006 02:38 am (UTC)
Yeah, I think a lot of people are all over the map. *grin*

Heheheheheheh. Thank you! That seems to be a popular favourite. That, and Mpreg Island. *grin*

*waves* Hi, I got here via sarie_gamgee's LJ, and for the last ten minutes I've been laughing far too much thanks to this map. It is brilliantly fantastic and, even if biased, it still is very accurate ^.^

Also, it seems I'll have to Apparate quite a bit, since I can see myself living in many different territories :D

Hopefully you won't mind me saving this in my memories and sharing it with my Flist? :)
25th-Jun-2006 11:24 pm (UTC)
Awesome!! I'm so glad you've been enjoying it. *grin*

I think a lot of people will have to Apparate a lot, but it works out okay - I think everyone's got their one part of the fandom that they particularly enjoy hanging about in. ^_^

I don't mind at all!! Please feel free to share it!

Cheers :D
26th-Jun-2006 01:00 am (UTC)
I love the Crossovers. ;)
26th-Jun-2006 01:02 am (UTC)
*laughs* Thank you. It seems to be a favourite. :D
26th-Jun-2006 01:03 am (UTC)
This is great!

...some one should really do an image map and make those all links.
26th-Jun-2006 01:06 am (UTC)
Thank you!

... you know, I thought about that... but then, I thought that maybe I'd already put too much thought into it at that point. *grin*

(as a side note to everyone out there: if someone DOES want to do it, send me an email and I'll send you the photoshop format so it's easier to make the slices and links. :D)

*laughs* There are apparition points all over the realm. I myself am very much a nomad. ^_^
26th-Jun-2006 01:22 am (UTC)
Here on a link from miz_tith. I've always liked fantasy maps and this is a fun one. The nice central location of canon shippers made me happy.
26th-Jun-2006 01:31 am (UTC)
Thanks! I'm so glad that everyone's been enjoying it so far. *grin*

*giggles* Your icon amuses me very much.

So far I think everyone's been fairly agreeable to the layout - of course, I have to thank my friends-list for helping me tweak and add a few areas. ;) But it's more or less the same as the first version I put up - which I actually made in about 45 minutes.

Yay for canon shippers ^_^
26th-Jun-2006 02:56 am (UTC)
Ha, is there a reason that the H/Hr shippers are so close to the Violent Shippers territory?

Otherwise, pretty cool!
26th-Jun-2006 03:12 am (UTC)
*laughs* Because most of the H/Hr shippers that I know are (while good friends) the sort of folk who tend to defend their ship very violently. ;)

I myself ship Remus/Sirius, which is also very close to the Violent Shipper territory. I brook no illusions about the general state of either ship.

Like I warned, this map is heavily biased. ;) I've got some very reasonable H/Hr-shipping friends - heck, I've even written H/Hr fic. ^_^

26th-Jun-2006 02:57 am (UTC)
And that spot of water thar between crack!ships and RestrictedSectioners, that's Sirry Bay, and that's where I live, on me boat.

With me parrot, One-eye Jack.

(This is cool.)
26th-Jun-2006 03:13 am (UTC)
You're off the map... Here there be monsters. ;D

I've found a lovely spot for myself on the coastline of H/D and Snarry. I'm sure I'll be happy here for a long time!

Great work on the map! *laughs at mpreg way out there on the far side of the world*
26th-Jun-2006 03:15 am (UTC)
Oh, good! I hear there are a lot of condos and duplexes in that part of the world. *grin* Settle in! ;D

Thank you!!

(hahah, mpreg's location is getting a lot of lovin')
26th-Jun-2006 03:06 am (UTC)
Here via miz_tith.

Yay! You made a map...

Now, I know I am LOST! XD

Just joking. Great idea! I live in Canon Land (most of the time, at least).
26th-Jun-2006 03:16 am (UTC)
*grin* Woooo! I'm glad you enjoyed it.
26th-Jun-2006 04:19 am (UTC)
Hahahahaha, this is wonderful. *giggles at mpreg in the corner*
26th-Jun-2006 04:27 am (UTC)
*grin* Glad you liked it. ^_^
26th-Jun-2006 05:04 am (UTC)
Haha this is awesome! So glad SBP gets its own little country thing....and lmao to mpreg being over with the suethors :P
26th-Jun-2006 05:08 am (UTC)
*grin* Thank you!! Hehehe, like I said, heavily biased... which means that my much-loved Shoebox got a spot. *whistles innocently*
