My intro

*waves* Hello fellow sane shippers! I'm Kel, I'm 20 and I ship R/Hr and H/G. Although before I joined an R/Hr community I forgot that it was that couple I shipped and joined a H/Hr one instead. As soon as I realised my mistake I took myself off that community, but it made me think that, ya know, H/Hr wouldn't be that bad after all.

So this is my stance on shipping in the HP world:
-R/Hr is my first love. I think they're canon. They make a great pair. No, Ron isn't going to beat her up. My OTP.
-H/G is my second love. She fancies him. She's Ron's little sister, so Harry will look after her. And he saved her life.
-I don't mine a little bit of H/Hr, because they're best friends and they're both pretty, and they'd both do anything for each other. If they end up together, I'm not going to go overboard and drink my shampoo or anything.
-Shipper wars are bad. The Buffy shipper wars were awful, and I don't want to be a part of anything like that ever again. I am *ashamed* that I took part in anything like that, even if I was younger and more naive about stuff.
-Bashing is bad. Just because it's not my ship doesn't mean it's wrong. It's different, sure, but it's just as valid and other people have just as right to ship it as I do my ship.

There you have it. That's what I think abou shipping. :D Oh, and I also love sensible, mature discussion about it.

I agree with you. Shippers shouldn't loose their head about things. I had a friend who was attacked (online of course) because of her Buffy shipping. I hope HP doesn't become that way... [shudder]. Anyways, at the rick of sounding like a pathetic R/Hr shipper... i Don't really know what canon means. Would you clarify it for me? Thanks!
Canon is something that has happened in the books (and to a lesser extent in the films). So, Ron breaking his leg is canon, because it happened in the books, whereas someone who writes about Ron doing something that he hasn't done is fanon. Hope that helps!
helps a lot. Thank you!
I feel similar to you, really. I'd love it if H/Hr happened but to be honest, I don't think it will. I think R/Hr will probably happen and that's fine by me - I think Ron could get Hermione to loosen up a bit and Hermione could get Ron to be more responsible. They balance eachother out nicely.

And bashing is just... ergh. It's two (or more) fictional characters boffing eachother, people, not the third world war. Relax.
I couldn't have put it better myself.

I love the word boffing.

Thank you! :D
oh man.. your icon made me laugh so hard... it's great
I must agree, it's great! First time I saw it I sniggered and got funny looks.
rock on. all that makes perfect sane sense. welcome.
Thanks. :D

Lol...this is so like me it's scary. I totally agree with you though...the bashing and wars is horrible.
Hehe! I guess I'm just a conventional gal at heart.
Cheers! That's exactly what I think! And my ships are exactly the same :)
Yay! I love your icon!
I'm kinda like you. Except H/Hr is my first love.. and a bit of Ron/Hermione never hurts too much.
I agree. The shipper wars (please note the WARS not the people although some of them ...) should be shot, stabbed and poisoned.

I'm very glad no one's gonna be drinking their shampoo (or any other cleaning products). Can you imagine the scandal it would cause if a thousand raving shippers suddenly decided to run, en masse, to the supermarkets and clear them out of shampoo? Then where would we be?

Stuck with a thousand odd bottles of conditioner, I imagine ...
Could you imagine? If it just so happened to be enough to kill them? The suicide notes? "Harry & Hermione together! Seventh book! *sob* I can't stand this, I can't go on!" Or "Ron got Hermione!!! So awful! Must drown sorrows in shampoo!!"
Lol!
