- Debating about the ships
- November 22nd, 2010
Well, this was posted in critics, it's my own coment and I'll delect the other one. It's an ansewr of the 3rd coment in critics, made by hm276, and since I talked about other thing, I decided to make another post and let that one only about the movies.
Since we do not hava our site now, let's heat this LJ!
I'm not exactly a shipper, i don't care who ends with who, since it's properly written. As a writer myself, (even tough I write plays) I care more about how the story flows, if it has consistency, coherence, coesion and continuity, also known by the "4 C's". And I have more problems with the plot than the pairings. I interpret what I read in the books.
For me, no doubt, they're a threesome. It's how the characters behaved waqnting JK this or not. Sometimes characters are a pain in the ass and do what they want. Worst part: they're always right.
Hermione is a young JK, that really fell in love with a Ron but in the end married a Harry. She said this in one interview herself. Ron and Hermione are perfect for a first love. Never a long lasting relationship. Harry and Hermione however can be longlasting but since this is about love in such young age, they may not recognize it at first. They have to feel passion first to understand love later.
But it can be a story about soul mates. Three soulmates. Heart, Mind and Body.
They're such a closed unite that almost no one can block it. I say almost because I believe that Luna was the most successive one. Unfortunately her character was only there to provide a distraction and introduce her father. She could be a lot more.
In this threesone relationship I could see only three endings:
1 - They assume themselves as a threesome (and ALL is TOO WELL for a children's book;
2 - The opposite. They assume that they can't handle the situation and they decide remain platonic to save what they have;
3 - One of them die, and not necessary one of the boys.
A 4th option could be Hermione choosing, but didn't you found very interesting that after destroying the locket, Harry told to Ron that hermione was like a sister, and he was very happy that his friend had his head hidden in his arm so, he could say this without looking in his eyes? and Hermione didn't participate in this "decision" about her love life. So, no choice to Hermione.
About the second option. Well, there is the main trio and the parallel trio, which is a mirror of the first one.
Both Harry and Neville fitted in the Prophecy;
Ron and Ginny are siblings;
Hermione and Luna are total opposites.
Interesting to observe that the parallel trio has a major crush on the main trio. Harry's POV didn't realize Neville's feelings for Hermione but remember that scene in OOTP when they met Neville and his grandmother in St Mungus? How the grandmother was so happy to meet Hermione and ignored the others, including the "boy who lived"?
Ginny is Ron with skirt and a real passport for Harry to belong to a big family;
Luna is the anti-Hermione, who puts Ron first but do see his flaws - and accept them;
Neville is the Harry that truly sees Hermione, he was her first friend and the first one to recognize her as oposite sex. If I'm not mistaken, they sit together.
So, hm276, enough thoght-provoking to you?
