Two things I just had to pass on...

Yesterday, I was feeling pretty distressed.

Today on my LJ friends list, I found some treasures that made me feel substantially better. I thought I should pass them on.

Yesterday, the Ron-hate in this fandom was driving me nuts.

Today, wahlee_98 has restored my sanity. Let them say what they will. Let them have their hate. It won't stop me from enjoying the books--and fandom--along with those who will discuss the characters with discernment and fairness.

Yesterday, politics and election issues had me beating my head against a wall.

Today, markbrannan has reminded me to relax and have a laugh. Even though serious issues and decisions remain, I can face them, like the Wife of Noble Character, with optimism and laughter.

God bless you.

ETA: lilac_bearry has posted some of Michelle Ravel's brilliant haikus about Ron, but I would like to post my personal favorite here:

Some people dislike
Anything to do with Ron
Harry would hate them


*nods* Exactly.

I've noticed that some journal styles (mine included) don't make links very obvious, but since I think these things are definately must-see/read, I will point them out, at the risk of sounding a bit patronizing: the links are on the words "restored my sanity" and "relax and have a laugh." Chex them out. Really. You'll be glad you did. :)

Current Mood: grateful grateful

That's what I'm feeling, too. I said my piece, and now I'm done with it. Let them hate Ron. They will all be sorry when the books are over and--*gasp!* Ron is still important to Harry, and has 12 kids with Hermione, and *grows up*, and distinguishes himself from both Harry and his brothers in some spectacular way. We will rejoice and they will cringe, and then they can say what they want about Ron, we'll have *text* to back us up.

yo'

Truness, I hope your stressors were alleviated.
I saw that 'political cartoon' yesterday, its entertaining, to say the least (it's always nice to see something fun done in After Effects).
I think it'd take more than a few anti-ron flamers to get you down.
