Millions of strange shadows does she attend on

Random theory time

Okay, so I've come up with this theory, and since it really shines through in the pottercerse ships, I thought I'd post it here. You see, I believe there are two kind of shippers. One is the canon shippers. These are the people who ship what they believe to be hapening in canon, and claim that their ship is the one that's going to be the final ship left standing when it's all over. Then there's the fandom shippers, who ship based on what they think will work best and what appeals to them, regardless of what they see hapen in cannon.

I like to think of my self as a little of both. I ship stuff like Hermione/Ron and Harry/Ginny because that's what I fell in love with the idea of both loves. It doesn't hurt that I see both of them hapening in canon.

So, who out there s a cannon shipper and who's a fandom shipper?

I think I'm both. In canon I ship Ron/Hermione and Harry/Luna. Those are the ones I'd really like to see happen.

However, as far as fandom shipping goes, I like pretty much anything. There are few ships I just won't read, but I see no real chance of most of what I like happening in canon.
dude, your icon is the coolest thing I've ever seen, and I usualy abhor anyhting Draco/Harry.
I'm a fandom shipper. I ship characters together because I think they make a good match - if I thought any of my ships would become canon, that'd be a nice bonus, but it'd never be the entire reason I shipped the two characters.
I guess my main ships are canon- R/Hr and H/G to an extent. Maybe. But then I love reading fic and ship stuff like Sirius/Remus etc. So, yep, a both here too. I'm cafanon!
i'm pretty much straight up a fandom shipper because whatever happens in canon happens an i can't do anything about that. so even if my ship (H/Hr) doesn't happen--i'd still ship it. cuz i think they go best together.

"where ARE all the Viktor/Hermione shippers?"

I'd like an answer to that, too! I've barely been able to find any V/Hr fics at all, and they're one of the rare canon relationships in the entire series... o__o
I thank you muchly! =bows=
I'm a canon and fanon H/Hr shipper. I see H/Hr happening in canon, I think that would be the best pairing as well and it appeals to me the most.

I'm also a Hermione/Viktor shipper, which is, you know, actual canon, heh :D.
Like catchmelike, I think I'm, both.

Ron & Hermione are my OTP - my pairing above all pairings. In fanon - fan fiction, to be exact - I don't read the pairing often, as I'm more concerned with other ships that appeal to me. But, my 'shipping of and preference for Ron/Hermione is based on both what I believe is evidence in canon and the fact that their relationship - or possible relationship - appeals to me. It's both.
I'm pretty much a fanon shipper. hownovel explained it best; I ship certain couples because I think their canon personality would fit and complement best with. Some of the ships I like are Draco/Ginny, Ron/Hermione, Bill/Fleur, Draco/Pansy, Ron/Pansy, Sirius/Remus, etc. In each ship, there is a certain side to it that really appeals to me and I think is interesting.
