HBP Thoughts and Acceptance.

HYPERVENTILATING.

HBP.

JULY 16.

TIME NOW ... 0000hr (GMT +8).














I'm SO excited, I'm practically hopping about! =D

However, I've an inkling of dread seeping into my heart. Part of it comes from the spoilers but most of it is contributed by the reactions toward them.

"Thanks for sharing the spoilers. I'll save on HBP now."

"JKR's a fanfic writer! That can't be! o_O"

Okay, I've a pretty good idea what shippings are there in HBP and I'd say some of us are bound to be disappointed. Probably half of us will.

I'm sick of seeing people flaming/criticising JKR's writing skills because she didn't write their ships. Well, these people are completely missing the point - JKR's the creator of the HP universe, the author of the books, and she has every right to write whatever she likes in the books.

I s'pose shipping is all about interpretation, so if you didn't see ?/? coming, learn to accept it. If you're unable to, at least don't go bashing the ship or something. Or worse still, don't buy/read HBP. D'you really think it's missing out on HBP over shippings? Romance, after all, is only a subplot.

It's like picking up a Knut and throwing away the Galleon. It's like letting your life come to a stop because you cannot move on. And it is worth it?

Having said this, I'm going off to bed. My eyelids are drooping like mad. Got to wake up early. Anyway, I hope I won't see as many of these kinds of response around the fandom after its release or I might actually go off for a good while.

I'm leaving this post as public.

I agree with you. First off, many people are like, "JKR's a plagiarist!!" And I'm like, "No, she's not." If she's a plagiarist, then every writer on earth is a plagiarist, y'know? Kinda get what I'm saying?

And I think it's dumb that those psycho H/Hr shippers who think Ron should die just so H/Hr can happen in peace of because he's stupid or something. JKR's book, JKR's choice. You either like it or don't. Right? :3
Yeah, and if you don't like the books in general, just stfu and don't read it. If it's the shippings you don't like, throwing away HBP or bashing JKR won't help one bit! I wish Voldie would die, really, but I hope we get to see more of his former self before he gets killed.

HAH. I doubt JKR reads fanfics because she needs a lot of time writing and cleaning up. It's the HP fanatics that are getting smarter!
I hope I won't be disappointed over shipping tomorrow.. Whatever it is, JKR is a good writer. And I will say this even if H/G or R/Hr don't happen.. (Though I don't wanna think about it..) Sleep tight, and we'll discuss HBP tomorrow =)
I hope I won't too (but since I know quite a bit of spoiler, I won't be too devastated if H/Hr comes...). She's a brilliant writer, that's for sure, otherwise how is it possible for her to sell millions of copies of books over the world? Discuss we will toDAY (0620hr now). ;)
Agree. Ships are only a subplot - and not a very big subplot -, so people really need to cool down.
That's right because it's just really dumb to get angry over the shippings etc. Waste of energy. It's not like JKR wrote something racist in there.
couldnt agree with this post more. People are just having a hard time facing the fact they might have to eat their words. They'll be calm in a month or two.
Hopefully. Most people do come to terms with it after awhile... ;)
Okay, I've a pretty good idea what shippings are there in HBP and I'd say some of us are bound to be disappointed. Probably half of us will. - no D/G of course...

btw I think it's Albus D. who might die...I don't know why but I've got that strange feeling that it's him.
No, no. Don't tell yourself that before reading HBP. Have faith in D/G.

Yeah, I strongly feel Dumblydore dies. =(
