i need to rant  
FUCKING RANT. WHAT. THE. FUCK. WITH TELLING ME THAT H/HR IS GROSS AND STRICTLY PLATONIC AND ONLY A FRIENDSHIP AND SIBLING LIKE AND NEENER NEENER R/HR IS CANON SO SUCK IT UP.

FUCK. YOU.

I FUCKING KNOW THAT YOU FUCKING CUNT WHY CAN'T YOU JUST KEEP YOUR FUCKING OPINION TO YOUR FUCKING SELF YOU FUCKER. YOU. FUCKING. WON. YOUR SHIP IS FUCKING CANON AND THERE'S NOTHING I CAN DO ABOUT IT SO I DON'T FUCKING BASH YOUR SHIP EVERY FUCKING CHANCE I GET EVEN THOUGH I SO TOTALLY WANT TO BECAUSE FUCK IF I'M THE KIND OF GIRL THAT WANTS TO BE WITH A MAN WHO TREATS ME WITH RESPECT AND THINKS ABOUT MY FEELINGS AND IS EMOTIONALLY SUPPORTIVE OF MY DECISIONS AND OBSESSIONS AND FUCKING LOOKS ME IN THE EYE WHEN HE'S FUCKING TALKING TO ME. SO TAKE YOU AND YOUR FUCKING OPINIONS AND FUCKING DIE IN A FUCKING FIRE.

GOD I WANNA FUCKING KILL SOMETHING.

i happen to like ron as a character. he is fierce and brave. sure, he can be a dickhead sometimes but when it comes down to it, when it really matters, when it counts, he is there and i absolutely love him for that. he sticks up for harry and hermione and his sister and is an awesome human for being accepting and loving and choosing to do the right thing even if he can be a little thick.

i just don't like him and hermione together in that way.

Just take a deep breath and remember how unsatisfying canon must be if some people continue to try and bash down other ships rather than celebrate their own :-)

And in some totally randomish way, your defense of Ron has me wanting to try and come up with a Ron/Luna bunny. Because the moments I liked Ron best were when he was opening up to Luna. BUT I HAVE TOO MANY BUNNIES GOING NOW TO START A NEW ONE!
Sunny: HP dancesunny_serenity on December 21st, 2010 11:53 pm (UTC)
Yeah. Thank you for rationalising that point for me. I am breathing now.

Oh, yes please! I love Ron/Luna and all it's cute interaction.
Avid Beader: quillavidbeader on December 22nd, 2010 12:43 am (UTC)
I keep wanting to try, but I'm so afraid I wouldn't get Luna right. She seems such a hard character to do well, balancing the daffy and the insightful just right.

On the other hand, there's that Ron-centered fic that's been sitting on my hard drive for years...if I could put Luna in its place and do it right...

Well now, pearls are made pretty by the ugliest of circumstances, no?

Wow, you've got me (fondly) recalling books 5 and 6 and how they really did support R/L potential. Luna laughing at Ron's jokes, commenting about him to Harry in 6th year (I've read a fic or two wherein she admits to having had a crush on him) ... and then I'm quite sure Ron says something about her in both of those books - her "really growing on him" in one of them, I forget the other quote.

Definitely canon support there (well, until you hit the last one). I can well imagine Ron giving up on his infantile crush on Hermione after the silliness of book 6 and approaching Luna, or at least noticing her. And she, of course, had been waiting for him to grow up and out of his fixation on Miss Granger.

When I discovered Portkey back in 2004'ish I remember quite enjoying the ancillary R/L that accompanied many of the H/Hr stories.

She seems such a hard character to do well, balancing the daffy and the insightful just right.

Think 'Paracelsus', yeah?

Oh, you! *tackle glomps* You, lady, are a smart one. I was so alone for so long with this and now that there are people of like mindedness about I got a little adventurous and wandered too far.

You're scary when you're angry...and you take you ship very seriously...wow...

You don't mind that I'm a R/Hr shipper do you...?*hides*
Sunny: HP rock onsunny_serenity on December 22nd, 2010 11:29 pm (UTC)
lol... well, it's not very often I get passionate about things like this so when I do it's full tilt boogie. Beware. LOL.

No. Not. At. All. In fact I love you more for it because it just shows that although there we may differ in preference we are still totally friends and get along and are supportive and amazeballs awesomeness! We don't try to force each other into our idealism of what I like you haaaaave to like. We celebrate each others squee in all it's forms as well it should be in fandom. I guess a lot of people didn't get that memo...

Ahhh fandom can sometimes be a scary and horrible place. I hate ship wars in any fandom, and from what I've gleaned, they tend to be pretty bad in the Potterverse. *hugs*
Sunny: SG Vala 0_osunny_serenity on December 22nd, 2010 11:31 pm (UTC)
*hugs* indeed it can. It's just so. bloody. stupid. and has me asking, 'can't we all just get along?!'. *sigh*

Who said this to you?

I'm sorry. You have every right to love your ship no matter what. I know that I still love Draco/Ginny no matter what the canon says.

*hugs*
Sunny: HP evil never looked so goodsunny_serenity on December 22nd, 2010 11:35 pm (UTC)
*hugs* Some random person over on some random website. I got a wee bit too adventurous with my Potter!love and got slammed. *sigh*

OMG! DRACO/GINNY?! YOU TOO?!?! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! Okay, totally rec me some stuff and squee about that so that this page will not forever be marred by fuckery.

I really like this idea of them. Beyond the 'they would have pretty babies' obviousness of them there's something about a spitfire girl and a poncey boy I absolutely LOVE.

Ugh, oh boy. :( This is just the kind of thing we were talking about not too long ago, isn't it? I'm so sorry, that's so awful. *hugs* I'm so glad I haven't run into anything like this personally. It's bad enough just hearing stories about it.

I totally agree with everything you said about Ron too. ♥
Sunny: HP protegosunny_serenity on December 24th, 2010 12:32 am (UTC)
Indeed. The wank. I have seen it and it is lamecakes.

I really do like Ron but some of the conflicting emotions I have for him directly correspond to his relationship with Hermione.
A Figure Of Speech: [harry potter]afigureofspeech on January 2nd, 2011 07:06 am (UTC)
Yeah, Ron and Hermione...has never really done it for me.
