How do relationships grow out of fandoms? In this roundtable discussion, we will talk about the outlets and organizations that allow us to make lasting connections through these stories. We’ll talk about how to maintain existing communities like #WizardTeam, the Harry Potter Alliance, and Mischief Management with accountability and technology. How do we build sustainable and supportive communities?
