Anonymous said: The ! isn't actually an exclamation point, it's called a "bang." It signifies a specific relationship between a trait and a character, so emo!harry would mean that Harry's most significant and relevant trait for that story would be that he is emo. It's derived from coding in java script, where using ! means "not," so using a bang between a trait and a character means you are portraying them as something they usually are not. People started using it this way in the X-files fandom.
this is kinda of awesome thank you so much anon!
