Hermione had come in for her fair share of unpleasantness too, but she hadn’t yet started yelling at innocent bystanders; in fact, Harry was full of admiration for the way she was handling the situation.
“Stunningly pretty? Her?” Pansy Parkinson had shrieked the first time she had come face-to-face with Hermione after Rita’s article had appeared. “What was she judging against - a chipmunk?”
“Ignore it,” Hermione said in a dignified voice, holding her head in the air and stalking past the sniggering Slytherin girls as though she couldn’t hear them. “Just ignore it, Harry.”
Could you please recommend me an excellent fanfic?
Absolutely. The first thing that springs to mind is Paradigm of Uncertainty, by Lori. I have to warn you: it is definitely rated M for Mature, but the story is absolutely amazing. It’s the first part of a 3 part novel length series. The second parts can also be found in that Yahoo Group. Unfortunately, the last part’s not finished, but she did give us what she had of the final chapter and summarized how it would have ended.
If you’re feeling adventurous and want to go searching for yourself, Pumpkin Pie Archive is a bastion of wealth for H/Hr fanfic.
do you support any other ship that's non-canon besides Harry-Hermione?
I ship Ron/Luna and Ginny/Draco (or Ginny/Neville, but I really like Neville with Hannah Abbott). I like Remus/Tonks in canon, but there’s also a place in my heart for Remus/Sirius. I wasn’t sure about them, but then I read a little story on livejournal called The Shoebox Project and that solidified my love.
“Are you really?” said Hermione. “I know all about you, of course — I got a few extra books for background reading, and you’re in Modern Magical History and The Rise and Fall of the Dark Arts and Great Wizarding Events of the Twentieth Century.”
and it was 2000s themed. They only played music from the first decade of the 2000s. Some great songs were played (Remember “Yeah” by Usher? Good shit.) That’s not the point of this post.
The point of this post is that on the ceiling they had projections of shit from the first decade of the 2000s. There was Bush, Obama, the Madonna/Britney kiss, Stewie, and HARRY POTTER FROM POA. (Everyone can tell which movie it is by Dan’s hair, right? Right.) He was looking down with this piercing stare and every time I looked up I was like, you are so attractive. Do me right now. Everyone else thought I was crazy for looking up so much. I think I’m just a normal HP fangirl. :)
