I used to not like the Harry/Ginny shipping. I complained that it was too sudden, something was amiss, etc. Don’t get me wrong, I love Ginny’s character especially in the book!verse. Then, while going back over the series, I suddenly got it. The series is told from Harry’s point of view (duh, me!). He is your average every day teenage boy. He doesn’t notice Ginny because he’s so busy going after the unobtainable eye candy (Cho Chang) to really see what’s in front of him because despite the prophecy, and the Chosen One nonsense, he’s still a normal hormonal teenage boy. Then one day he looks at Ginny and he realizes, “Hey! My best friend’s sister is actually kind of hot and we actually have common interests. I bet I could convince her to name one of our children after Dumbledore and that one teacher I hate.”

Meanwhile, Ginny is just doing her thing. She’s not pulling a Bella Swan and sitting comatose in her room for 4 books while Harry’s working his stuff out. She’s dating other boys, exploring her options. People call her a slut for doing that but is it really slutty to date different guys. I mean, you aren’t going to marry the first guy that comes knocking, are you? Plus, she’s proving to the world that she can be just as good at things like DADA and Quidditch as all of her brothers. Even when Harry dumps her at the end of Half-Blood Prince, she’s holds her head high and waits for him to come back to her. 

And that’s why I love her.

Well, that and the fact that she hexed Rita Skeeter for badmouthing her family in the latest short story on Pottermore.

If Ron’s family is so poor than how the heck did he get so much Chudley Cannons stuff? I mean, he’s as bad as the Alabama/Auburn fans around town during football season here and sports-related stuff is EXPENSIVE. Did Molly just transfigure it up for him or did she and Arthur spent some of what little money they had just so their youngest son could have something that he really loved? I mean, in the books, it’s described that his room is almost a shrine to the team. So, did Ron sacrifice having nicer things just so he have some orange swag (of a Quidditch team that really isn’t good?)

It still amazes me that Harry was sent back to the Dursleys every summer on Dumbledore’s orders. I mean, people like Mrs. Figg were watching him his entire life and no one ever picked up the phone and called Child Services? Ron and the twins even told their mother that Harry’s relatives had him locked in a room with bars on his windows and that they were starving him and Molly never questioned it? There wasn’t a point in all the times she had him at the Burrow and went, “Hm, Harry has an awful home life. I should talk to Dumbledore about this.” Even his elementary school teachers never noticed that Harry was extremely thin and wore ratty old hand-me-downs that were too big while his cousin, that lived in the same house, wore clothes in good condition and was overweight?

So, a quick note to my followers…I started reading the Harry Potter series again. And now I’m watching the movies and…well, expect a flood of HP related posts.

Sorry notsorry

Nickelodeon,

Look, I know I’ve been giving you a lot of crap lately. Really, I’ve been borderline bitchy. I accept that. I also accept that you really don’t like the Legend of Korra. I mean, you don’t advertise it, you don’t have any merchandise for it, you never show any of its reruns. Because you are a bunch of sexist pigs that don’t like strong female protagonists having their own show. I also know that you are chomping at the bit to put your cash cow in Korra’s timeslot (because we all know that today’s society just doesn’t get enough scantily-clad squirrels in bikinis today, right?)

I mean, come on! You took Avatar off and we barely got to finish that series. Look, I (and a few other Korra fans I know of) will quit bitching if you just calm the hell down and leave the show in it’s timeslot. It pains me to admit this, but it’s almost over anyway. We have like, what, nineteen more episodes? That’s like half a season of Spongebob (is it? Really don’t care) Please at least consider this so we don’t have to call you names like stupid assholes and such.

I made a powerpoint of why I’m mad about the Korra pull. I understand it’s not cancelled (thank god), but I’m still upset.

please nickelodeon

*Mai-face* How dare you insult our Lord of Sponginess.

I still think Nick is sexist. That’s why we can’t have strong female protagonists that aren’t squirrels in bikinis.

Spread the word! We want to save this great show from being taken off television air and get it the respect it deserves!
If it does not air at this time where you are, be sure to use the hastag at this time anyway! We want it to be trending around the world!

This is so irritating! Because I always record Korra on my DVR because I don’t get back home until it’s already started and by the time I do my ritual of get out of my work clothes, let my dogs outside to go to the bathroom, and grab some dinner, the first episode is already over. I really don’t think my boss is going to let me leave early just so I can watch cartoons.

But seriously, people that don’t work as late as I do or that’s out of school, please tune in so Nick doesn’t put Korra on hiatus.

ATTENTION ALL FANDOMS.

I’m just one tiny voice in The Legend of Korra fandom but, Nickelodeon is putting the show on a hiatus due to ratings. These ratings are due to their lack of advertising. We love our show a lot and a lot of work has been put into it. I am asking that all fandoms come together to watch Legend of…

This is total bull. All the crappy advertisements that they have for Spongebob and all their other shitty shows and they don’t even bother to advertise a GOOD show. It’s like never showing any trailers for a movie and expecting people to just buy a $12 ticket for it just to find out what the heck its about!
