(no subject)

So, I'm currently re-reading HBP, and taking copious amounts of notes this time, because there is just SO MUCH I want to think about and say and discuss later. If you're looking for a 'state of the H/D union' post from me, you're going to have to wait a bit, because the first thing on my mind is actually Snape, the second thing on my mind is Harry and the horcrux, and the third thing on my mind is how to do justice to the thoughts about Harry and Draco that are really important to me just at the moment.

But really, do you need an H/D commentary post from me, or anyone? I mean, MY GOD. If you really want to talk shippiness, you'd certainly be entitled. If the Remus/Sirius shippers can spend the last two years being convinced that Remus/Sirius is canon because of one bloody Christmas present, then as far as I'm concerned, Harry/Draco shippers can go on as much as they like about how their ship is "canon." Because the H/D ship from a canon perspective has gained, from this book, at least as much legitimacy as Harry/Hermione, Harry/Ginny, and Ron/Hermione.

So, H/D shippers--now that we've all recovered from having been knocked flat on our asses, let's get up and fucking DANCE.

(Oh, and if you still insist on looking for shipper commentary, you thirsting OTP-er, you, hie you over to monochromal's lovely post, or miint's, which says it all.)


In other news, all of you people who were so eager and convinced that I should watch Hikaru no Go after Prince of Tennis failed to mention to me that it was an anime about A BOARD GAME. A BOARD GAME.

Oi. Vey. I am through the first three eps. I don't know what you guys are slashing, but right now Akira/Hikaru isn't doing anything for me, and Sai/Akira seems to be the most obvious ship I can see. And I don't know that I can get into ghost slash. theirloveissotransparent? I dunno. And "His translucent member" just doesn't have quite the same ring to it.

*waves OTP flag* Harry/Draco forever and ever and ever. Amen.
