How I feel about it all: amusedheheheee
Soundtrack: Carly Simon - You're So Vain


Am I the only one who thinks the Pumpkin Pie wank is hysterically funny? No, I'm not talking about the rational H/Hr people who are disappointed that their ship isn't canon (although we H/D people deal with that on a daily basis and for the most part DON'T CARE).

I'm talking about the nutters, here, folks.

I mean, geez. They're raising money to put an ad in the NY Times!!!! Directed at JKR, apparently. Because of course, she reads the NY Times with her English Breakfast tea every morning whilst sitting in her kitchen in England where of course the NYT is SO relevant to British life because OMG the US is the CAPITAL OF THE WORLD, and therefore everyone must know what goes on there at all times.

If anyone takes out an ad in the Providence Journal I shall die from amusement. C'mon, Rhode Island. I double-dog-dare you.

And the petition? HAHAHAHAHAAA. So funny.

Geez, guys. Get a clue, get a life. Go for a walk in the woods, take some classes, learn to dance or something.


Besides, like ivyblossom, I follow the One True Way.


And anyway, I think if JKR did read an ad in the NYT like that she'd think it was as funny as I do.


*Rolls around on the floor laughing*

ETA: From the petition:

The summary of true love. But there are anvils, too, for HHr. I'm sorry you don't see them. It's the friendship, the base of a successfull ship. neither HG nor RH have had it.

Um, she doesn't have to "see" anything. She wrote the story, for Salazar's sake. She can turn Harry AND Hermione into tiny little tree toads if she wants to but she'd better keep her hands off Draco because I'll have to

*keeps on laughing*

Have you read about the movement to send the dust jackets from the books back to JKR in protest? Sending the books back would cost too much--too heavy--so OMG we must be EMO and send back our DUST JACKETS and I'll be in the corner cutting myself because I am JUST SO EMO OMGWTFBBQRHESUSMONKEYS!!!

OMG that's so good.

Everyone knows that it's all about the H/D, anyway.

P.S. I'd love your icon if I knew what it was all about.

Yep.

I don't see the R/S ship sinking, though. It survived OoTP, it'll survive Remus moving on after Sirius' death.

From the petition:

We simply ask that you do not push us aside and think us any less then other "shippers".

Oh, the suffering!!
I'm sure JKR will feel SO VERY SORRY for them and rewrite the book.

But don't you know that Harmony is not a ship ... it is a way of life, an ideal, and they live forever, in the human heart. The fact that so many of us believe in it, and in the ideals of unconditional love founded on mutual respect, the deepest affection, shared ideals, and profound self-giving, is proof that God moves in the human heart.

*coughs*

Whatever. I'm torn between being highly amused and just flat out disgusted.

Twenty years from now, there's going to be a news story about some cult where they found all these women who drank the KoolAid, and they're all going to be dressed like Hermione, or something. And they'll have some Harmony Manifesto. And everyone will call them the Harmony Cult. :p

OMG I just spend the last fifteen minutes laughing so hard. The best post was the one that said OotP isn't really canon, because the story makes sense if you read 1-4 and then 6, and without OotP, there's not as much Harry/Hermione hints. Erm?

I also read one that was like 'we're a PIRATE ship now, because we aren't going to be in canon' and I'm wondering... does she think that EVERYONE ELSE thinks their ship is going to be canon?? The mind boggles. I dare anyone to find me a Snape/Harry shipper who thinks it will happen in canon. I would say H/D, but you know, there's probably a couple of crazies who might think that, so I thought I'd go with Snarry, because it might be a little safer in my claim. Still. OMG. WE'RE NOT CANON, OH NO.

The only thing I think about this? Join the fucking club, people, and stfu!

I am so, so embarrassed for them. What are they, twelve? If that ad is really taken out in the Times, it will reflect badly on ALL OF US. We HP fen will all look like utter lunatics with no lives, because of them.

I need coffee now.

First, love your mood icon. *pets the goat*

I wonder if part of the magnitude of the H/Hr reaction comes from the fact that it's a het ship. I mean, there hasn't been nearly the same backlash in the R/S community, has there? (I confess that I don't know for sure -- that's a ship I don't spend much time watching, let along sailing.) My thinking is that slashers are used to having canon upend our pairings (pun intended), because authors usually don't make gay relationships canonical. Het shippers, on the other hand, had at least a whiff of actual possibility, so when that's taken away, the disappointment is that much greater.

I need to think about this some more. If it goes somewhere, I might post it in my journal.

*pets the goat again*

You may have a point. Slashers are necessarily resiliant.

Laugh or cry at them, I can't decide.

No, you're right. Laugh.

You'd think they would either have picked up on the "subtle as a 2x4 between the eyes" hints over the last three books, or developed a blithe disregard for canon, one way or another. Either works. Heaven knows other ships in other fandoms have gone along the "oops, we were wrong" path, or the "who cares what the creator says" route, or done both. This is just... weird.

Your Providence Journal comment cracked me up. THAT would show JKR!

Yes, fanatical HMS Pumpkin Pie shippers amuse me to no end...

We, the members of the S.S. Guns'n'Handcuffs have been navigating the treacherous, snark-filled waters with nothing more than a ghost ship for years, and will continue to do so until the bitter end. Harry/Draco will NEVER be canon - unless a true miracle happens. However, we will tenaciously cling to the innuendo, we will titter and squee at the spotty subtext, we will proudly fly the H/D ship colors until Doomsday!

Though, if they follow through on this ad nonsense, all of us are going to look like delusional obsessed fans. I mean, sure, not everyone is a H/Hr fan, but it would reflect on all of us.
And yes, HP/DM, is so canon.

Re: linked from <lj user="emmagrant01">

I dunno, I think JKR is smart enough to know that this is a fringe group. And I don't think that they'll be able to come up with the 140-something thousand dollars it's going to cost, anyway.

I haven't been commenting on the wank in general because, frankly, between this and QAF wank, my cup runneth over, but I had to tell you that you hit the nail on the head. Honestly. Not only that, but you pummeled it into the wall.

Well said. Every last word.

LMFAO- The crazy H/Hr shippers just amuse me to no end. Some of them are being logical, and understanding that just because it's not canon doesn't mean they can't ship it. But the people wanting to set fire to JKR's house and shit: O_o ?!!?! They've lost their fucking minds. XD

Ah, it's days like this that make me happy to be a H/D hor.

Are there really people saying that? Because THAT is not. funny. At all. I wouldn't be surprised, though, that they're saying it.

Nope! ashkitty and I stayed up till 4 am reading the mind-bogglingly batshit insane stuff they've been writing and laughing repeatedly. Okay, we stayed up that late because it was too hot to sleep, but we enjoyed the entertainment. :) It's like watching someone get their tongue stuck to a metal post in winter, you know? You feel sorry for them, because they just look so incredibly stupid, and they did it ALL BY THEMSELF, but you have to laugh until you nearly cry, because OMG THEY LOOK SO INCREDIBLY STUPID!

Oh. We also read ginny_weasley's essay on why H/Hr is not canon, written in the days BEFORE HBP. She's quite snarkalicious. I look forward to trolling through the comments today, now that I've slept, and watching more of the mental patients shippers go nuts.
