I've bin drankin.  
um, wuttttttt, JK? What????

Briefly - for those who chill out under rocks;


Full story on Onnotheydidnt here; http://ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com/85367803.html

So basically, it's like THIS ICON - my favourite since forever, HAS JUST COME TRUE.

Lol - look at their little faces. They look like mine :)

I don't even knoooow...I'm not even mad. I suppose I feel a little vindicated, because it always felt exactly what she said - that the whole final few books were just forcing a pre-conceived idea with all the ships.

But now I think about it - I'm actually glad that the canon is what it is. It started me writing for one - HHR is my OTP and I wouldn't have been so obsessed or inspired to write them if they had ended up canon. I literally started reading and writing fanfic because I just felt so ripped off by Harry and Hermione. And I discovered so many great fanfic writers from that fandom.

So...Wow. I see what you did there, Joanne.

This little piece of news may inspire me to dig up some of the tens of thousands of unpublished HHR words on my hard drive and have a read...maybe a post even, who knows! Lol, oh those crazy kids, still killin me after all these years <3 Raising my glass to them :)

Huh. Much as I hate to give JKR credit for anything, even stuff she did by accident, there's some truth to that. A lot of the great H/Hr fic was basically written as protest.
Scarlett: hhr jkr on smackgolden_scarlett on February 3rd, 2014 04:45 am (UTC)
True, and many a great thing has come out of protest :)
God it just feels weird to think about it because I remember when I first started shipping them it was considered such a slight upon JKR to want anything but One Big Happy Wesley Family ...now it turns out she didn't know what she was doing... lol it's kinda hilarious :)
There's no anecdote for ironykudosirony on February 4th, 2014 05:58 am (UTC)
I saw and read that and felt so VINDICATED! Like, we all KNEW it. Then I was sad because all of my H/Hr groups and fanfic authors fizzled out a very long time ago. I had no one to share the joy with.
Scarlett: hbp huggolden_scarlett on February 4th, 2014 08:22 am (UTC)
I'll share with you! VINDICATED is the word alright - seriously, from being told we were crazy for years to this? It's too good! It's not even about 'I told you so'...it's just that I remember feeling like there really was something suspect about the canon ships, it wasn't just me being a weirdo haha :) I bet (and hope) HHR has a resurgence now - I've been revisiting fic and thinking of publishing again so maybe I'm not the only one :)

Thanks for stopping by and yay and *high five* :)

I was never a big HP fan, but I have read the entire series and could never get behind Ron/Hermione, so this revelation doesn't surprise me one bit. Harry/Hermione definitely makes more sense.
Scarlett: hhr jkr on smackgolden_scarlett on February 10th, 2014 05:23 pm (UTC)
Riiiight? It was so obvious to me, I thought at any moment it would all turn around to being HHR, right up until that horrendous epilogue. I remember literally putting it down and going 'Whaaa? Huh??' haha. Ron and Hermione was just cheeeeesy as hell :)

I actually thought of you when I heard this, hoping it would inspire you to write more H/Hr because she finally admits what we knew all along! I suppose I feel more vindicated than anything too, but I have to admit--I doubt I would have gotten in to fanfiction at all had it not been for my disappointment in canon, which would have been a shame because I too have read so many amazing H/Hr stories over the years.

So yes, if you've got more on that hard drive, POST IT ALL! I want to read everything! :)
Scarlett: hbp huggolden_scarlett on February 10th, 2014 05:52 pm (UTC)
Aw that's so lovely, thanks :) I actually did the same, went straight to my fave HHR fanfic writer's journal thinking the same thing haha - it was parkergray by the way. Yea I've been polishing some fic I found to tell the truth so wherever I end up posting it I promise I'll come back here and link it! I also found a good rec list I've been working through lately HHR Reclist
And yup, I don't regret the canon for the fact of the awesome fic I've found because of it too :) Still love JKR regardless :)
