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This little piece of news may inspire me to dig up some of the tens of thousands of unpublished HHR words on my hard drive and have a read...maybe a post even, who knows!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.

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 :)
