shipping in DH [28 Jul 2007|01:46pm]

[ mood | curious ]

Anyone here up for some intelligent, well-reasoned, sane discussion of the shipping in Deathly Hallows?

I figured this was my best shot for anything resembling a calm conversation. :)

hi too you all! [03 Jun 2005|07:06pm]

[ mood | aggravated ]

hey, I'm new and I thought I better introduce myself.
I'm Laura, and I *love* Harry Potter. I ship R/Hr, H/L, D/G, L/J and R/T. I don't particularly like H/Hr, but I can understand where they are coming from.
I can't wait until HBP comes out, so we can see if there's any romance, or any pointing in the direction of the RIGHT pair.

I have a question to ask… Collapse )

Hey, anyone looking for great fan art should go to this site.

most of the stuff there is r/hr, but if you look around a little ( I can't tell you exactualy where, the majority of the gallery is in Japanese), yo'll find some d/hr, along with a few h/hr pics. There's also some good pics of the trio.

What ever you're looking for, it's worth a look.

I just joined this community to say high today and I guess you could call me one of those basically indifferent shippers. Sure H/Hr is what I saw in the beginning and still have loved today but I have a long list of ships I like. Harry/Hermione, Ron/Hermoine, Ron/Luna, Harry/Luna, Harry/Ginny, Harry/Susan, Draco/Ginny, Remus/Tonks, etc.

Anyway, I figured I would join this communtiy in hopes that there wouldn't be any insane bashing. The two that really seem to throw stones is R/Hr and H/Hr which I believe both are two possible ships. It's like two ends of the spectrum and both groups view the books differently.

[ mood | curious ]

Okay, so something's been bugging me of late. See, I keep hearing about the famous "Pumkin Pie" fic for which the h/hr ship is named. I know the basic plot; Harry craves pumkin pie, ends up talking to Hermione, they confess their feelings to each other, and then they kiss, and one tells the other they taste like pumkin pie.

The thing I don't get is, why is this fic so important to h/hr people that'd they'd adopt it as their ship title?

Oh, and could somebody tell me where to find the fic? I'm a avid R/Hr person myself, but for curiosity's sake, I'd like to read it.

Fiction Alley has a list of 'ships & their names (i.e. Fred/Hermione - Miracles). The list also links to threads for individual pairings/'ships.

There's a category/'ship name/thread for George/Luna Lovegood (Loony Trickster), but not for Fred/Luna.

Personally, I think that there should be a category/'ship name/thread for Fred/Luna. Fred and George may be twins, but they're separate people with their own identities. And I? Not only like Fred/Luna more than George/Luna, but I favour Fred over George.

Problem is, I'm no good at coming up with clever names, so I can't suggest the pairing. Not to mention, I don't want make a decision for everyone who likes the pairing. Anyone here have any suggestions?

For that matter, are there even any Fred/Luna 'shippers, other than myself, here? I hope so.

Also: if anyone knows how to go about coming up with names on Fiction Alley (if there's a specific area, or whatever), that would be helpful.

I leave you with a Fred/Luna rec.

Puppy Love by Kleine Snowdrop. "Fred, Luna and a puppy."

There are a few errors, and it's not the best written piece ever, but it's really sweet and fluffy - good for new-comers to the pairing.

Random theory time [25 Aug 2004|07:08pm]

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?

Pumpkin Pie all the way! [18 Aug 2004|11:47pm]

[ mood | lazy ]

I had no idea that sane shippers even existed, let alone were able to co-exist :)

In light of that, it's nice to see that people are ready to put differences aside and actually discuss the matter calmly and rationally - although we are talking about shipping which is, lets face it, anything but calm and rational but I digress.

My name is Paige and I am a rather obsessive H/Hr shipper (with side-servings of R/Lu and N/G). In the HP fandom I don't step away from these pairings - ever. However, due to my rather strange genetic makeup, I am able to see things from 'the other side' to put it blandly. I know many a shipper who absolutely refuses to acknowledge that anything other than their own ship even exists, let alone has a probability of actually happening. Having said that, while I don't agree with the R/Hr ship point of view, I can certainly see where they're coming from.

Ship preferences aside, I'm looking forward to be a part of this community. I'm new to the whole LJ phenomena as a whole, so finding a community such as this one was a definite plus.

[ mood | lethargic ]

Okay, it's time for a random question based on curiosity.

Out of the people here, how many just ship an OTP, and if so, which one?
Also, how many people ship both?

I'm curious, because I wondered what ship was more popular, or if it was more common to sip both.

I can't quite remember if i've introduced myself yet. I'm sorry if I have and am just repeating myself..

and i'm also quite susceptible to a slash pairing or two.. :-)

Okay this is the theory of non_canon as posted in honestlyronald

----"Ok, so I've been debating over at Shipdebate, and I think I've figured out the difference between those who excuslivey ship H/Hr and those who excuslivy ship R/Hr.

H/Hr shippers are analytical minded. They logicly map out ship hints, and try to look at things in a logical light. They don't think Hermione and Ron will ever be together, because there's too much friction between the two. They see H/Hr as the logical choice because they think the lack of differences between the two denotes a deep understanding and a good building foundation for future romance. They think Ron is too hurtful and imature to interest Hermione.

R/Hr shippers are led by their hearts, not their minds. They go on the idea that love is rarely logical. They see the friction between Ron and Hemione not as a sign that the two are incompatable, but as a sign that the two are attracted to each other. They believe that it is the very differences between the two that drive them nuts are the same things that will keep them together. They believe that the two compliment each other, and balance each other out. They think Harry is too withdrawn and too like Hermione to interest her.

Basicly H/Hr shippers believe in the theory that like attracts like. R/Hr shippers believe that opposites attract."----

Hello, everyone!

I saw this community and joined immediately, because I had actually been thinking of creating a community like this (using the name 'saneshippers', too. Hee!) and am glad someone else did it instead.

I love so many different ships it's not even funny. Harry/Hermione, Ron/Hermione, Harry/Parvati, Draco/Hermione, Ron/Padma, Draco/Ginny, Harry/Draco, Harry/Ginny, Neville/Ginny, and so on and so on. I can't stand shipping wars, because they just make me go,"Er, people? I really think you are missing the point." And I can't stand the horrible smugness on the part of so many H/Hr and R/Hr shippers. It's awful.

So here I am, ecstatic to find a community of like-minded people! Whee! :D

oi. [02 Aug 2003|04:56pm]

[ mood | geeky ]

'lo. i never intro'd myself when i came so i thought i might as well.

the name of this community alone is what got me here, "sane" is nice to find. healthy discussion, dorky as it may be, still is better than arguin about something only one woman at her typewriter in London can solve. the shipper wars are a tad distrubing to me. you don't need to pull out a box cutter just cuz someone doesn't agree with you.

me? well i ship H/Hr. but i think Ron's crush is adorable. and i agree w/everyone else that my world won't sink when and if my ship does.

the reason i ship? it seems to me the only really big question left in the books. i mean, yeah, we all wonder who's gonna die and everything but i do believe Voldemort will be defeated even if Harry dies completeing it. but do we honestly know whose gonna end up whose baby mama? naw. it's the only thing, to me, we're still truly in the dark about.

so nice to meet yall. =)

My intro [02 Aug 2004|02:56pm]

[ mood | ditzy ]

*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.

Heya, my name is PJ or Ana Marie, I'm extremely picky about my 'ships.... I'm not kidding, I've been writing a fic... In it I 'ship Ron/Hermione, Harry/Ginevra, Draco/Depends on the chapter or situation. Yes, I sort of pimp Draco in my fics, he's a sleep around guy.

Anyways, I support lots of other 'ships, but I do so dislike it when people pair Snape with Harry, Hermione or Draco. The mental image is just something I do not want. I don't mean any disrespect to those who 'ship them.

Also, I'd love to discuss this by e-mail (sourgirl@gmail.com) or IM (waves smash up/lunarology), so give me 'ring'. Oh, also e-mail me if you'd like to know where my fic is at.

Another entrant! [29 Jul 2004|07:07pm]

[ mood | cheerful ]

Hello, I figured I should put in my 'hello, I'm new' while the 'hello, I'm new'-in' is good ;x My name's Michie, and I 'ship... most everything XD Harry/Draco, Hermione/Draco, and Harry/Hermione are my most favored. I'm not very interested in anything having to do with Ron, for some reason. It's not as if I don't like him, I just wouldn't want to read anything romantic or *coughs* sexual about the boy. Except for one story I've read, I just can't imagine him being mature at all.

Anyway! I'm not a writer. I am, however, an icon-maker! As bland and unimaginative at writing, I'm as excellent in icon-making ^_^ I take requests! I can't do any mov's, and I'm not that great at animated... but I'm good otherwise xD;

I love discussion and debate, but I won't usually start any.. ehe. Anywho! I'm looking forward to a future in this community ^.^

Let me start off by saying that I ship Ron/Hermione, Harry/Ginny, and Draco/Cho. Period. That said, let me just say that, while I do tease sometimes, I don't jump all over people who ship a different ship. heck, my two first LJ friends are professed ship whores. Anyway, I'm just here because it sounds like this would be an interesting disscussion palce. I look forward to it.

Hi I'm new :) I'm a R/Hr shipper and will never change. I used to HATE H/Hr shippers but I have become more tolerant since then and even though I still don't agree with the ship in general I REALLY want to see what goes on inside a H/Hr shippers head, so I came here :)
