This is one of those funny cos it's true things... >_____> JOANNE I've been doing that a lot lately. But if you think about it, she kind of kills all the canon H/Hr shippers. Voldy, Dumbley, Hedwig, Fred, Sirius... It hurts. I kind of hate you Joanne BUTILOVEYOUSOMUCHTOO! I feel like a victim of fandom abuse. I keep coming back for more! WHY DO I LOVE IT SO MUCH?! WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?! BRB, FOREVER CRYING...

Beatrice/Benedick = Shakespeare OTP OF ALL OTPS!!! ♥

Yeah, the saucer separation thing was the most fucking badass thing I ever saw at age 8, haters to the left.

YES! I hope you don't mind me laying this on you but you seem to be very level headed when it comes to shipping and I am a crazy irrational ~feelings person in this department of fandom so hopefully you can help me. Me loving B/B contributes to my confusion over my HP shipping because B/B is like OTP 4 LYFE for me. In that context I thought I'd like R/Hr because there's snarkiness and banter and insults but for the life of me I. can. not. like. R/Hr. Just. WHA?!? I hate my heart and brain sometimes... *sigh* anyway, never mind me...

HECK YES. Saucer tiems is epic!

Well IDK, I don't always like similar "types" of ships just because they're similar types, it really depends on execution for me. I can like a lot of different molds or kinds or archetypes or whatever you wanna call them of ships if they're well written/acted/etc, but if they're not then I really don't care if they're a type I usually like, because it just doesn't work for me. For me its all about execution.

JKR had to sustain her characters' chemistry over seven whole books while Much Ado was one play, so there's a lot more opportunity for JKR to go wayward with what was ultimately her biggest couple (in that their story together starts earlier and thus lasts longer than Harry/Ginny, and anyone else really). So it'd make sense to me that more people fell off the wagon with them, if they were ever on it.

And Ron and Hermione have much more going on for them in the story besides the romantic subplot while for Beatrice and Benedick that's basically their biggest thing, though yeah they support Hero and Claudio too, but in part that's as a foil as another (much more interesting and hilarious) romantic couple. So it'd make sense to me that people's opinions on Ron and/or Hermione individually (as people and/or as characters) affect their opinion of the pairing, whereas there's little room for that to happen with B/B.

Also, I just think B/B have better lines, TBH.

YES! OMG YES! THIS! ALL OF THIS! YOU HAVE JUST EXPLAINED MYSELF TO ME!!!! OH! I curtsy to your superior understanding of shipping with emotion. I do not need to have this warring mind and heart within me concerning HP anymore because for the longest time I was like this:

Now I'm like this:

I thankyouthankyouthankyou for that rationalisation and I double thank you on behalf of The Bro because he was getting all frustrated with my incessant rambling confusion and now I understand, blissfully at peace.
