|Jo. JKR. Joanne K Rowling is responsible, and she's certainly not a dick. Anyone with a shred of decency should remember that Harry Potter isn't about who ends up with who and that we're all in this together--and the author can say whatever she likes about her characters. Romione is still endgame.|
|I'm confused. What's everyone freaking out about? Jo regrets Ronmione?|
scroll a few posts down on the blog to the one basically titled ‘jo regrets romione’ xDD and read, it’s kind of tore the fandom in half. AGAIN.
such BS, I’m so mad. and even if it turns out not to be true the rift will still be there, with the opposite side saying HA TOLD YA SO. uuuggggh AND WE’VE ALL BEEN LIVING IN PEACE. WHY. WHOEVER IS RESPONSIBLE IS A DICK.
REALLY THOUGH? OF ALL THE THINGS TO REGRET YOU REGRET ROMIONE?! if that shiz is real I’m going to be in a state of confusion for a millennia.
okay I’m done Im sorry.
I LIVED THROUGH TOO MANY BULLSHIT LIVEJOURNAL AND FICTION ALLEY SHIP WARS FOR THIS I AM NOT RELIVING HARMONY VERSUS ROMIONE VERSUS WHO EVER THE FUCK ELSE HDU JKR I ONLY WANTED TO LIVE IN PEACE I THOUGHT I LEFT THIS ALL BEHIND IN 2006
NEARLY HEADLESS NICK DIDN’T DIE FOR THIS
MTE. A nuclear bomb has been detonated. and it’s already worse than any shipping war I’ve ever seen. And that includes the “harmony shippers are delusional” memerson interview.
Rowling says that she should have put Hermione and Harry together in the Harry Potter series instead of Hermione and Ron, according to the publication’s headline which reads “JK admits Hermione should have wed Harry.”
“I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment,” she says. “That’s how it was conceived, really. For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron.”
“I know, I’m sorry,” she continued, “I can hear the rage and fury it might cause some fans, but if I’m absolutely honest, distance has given me perspective on that. It was a choice I made for very personal reasons, not for reasons of credibility. Am I breaking people’s hearts by saying this? I hope not.”
Watson didn’t seem shocked by these comments and agreed with her. “I think there are fans out there who know that too and who wonder whether Ron would have really been able to make her happy.”
Rowling also says that Ron and Hermione would have needed “relationship counseling.” (source)
usually I would say hypable isn’t a reliable source (and there really isn’t anyone else reporting that isn’t just linking back to hypable) but the sunday times twitter photo is legit (or at least it’s on their official twitter), as is the fact that Emma guest edited her own Wonderland section of which JK is a part of.
My skepticism comes in though when I try to read what the sunday times section says and I can’t. So where did Hypable get it? and why didn’t they link the source? Also, why would Wonderland hand over such a piece of information from Emmas FIRST section?
It could all be publicity. Buy more Sunday Times to read a part of what will be in Wonderland, buy more Wonderland.
Emma and JK have always been very for Ron and Hermione. For this interview to be real it would be extremely out of character for the both of them.
Jo has ALWAYS stuck by her ending and her pairings in every interview to date. Hell, the woman wrote the epilogue long before she finished the series and still used it. So why now?
If this does end up being real, which I advise none of you to believe until theres an actual interview, then it seems like all that harmony brainwashing on the film sets got to them. Because I can think of no other way Jo would turn back on her perfect ending. (and by that I mean the ending SHE found to be so perfect for so long). Even after withstanding all that BS they put the ships through during filming, why would she break now. I just can’t believe it. And I won’t.
wonderland issue isn’t out until the 7th
but somebody pick up a sunday times tomorrow and let me know what it says. Thanks.
[[I’d like to think that in the after life, the marauders and Lily welcomed Snape with open arms. They might not be able to have a friendship, but I’d at least like to think that James, Peter, Remus, and Sirius would apologize because Snape was so willing to risk his life to save Harry.]]
[[We don’t know Charlie as well as the rest of the Weasleys but I relate to him the most because he didn’t feel the need to settle down. I like that it was his own choice and not because of some tragic circumstances.]]
