The shipper's pledge

Gacked from delemtri and angua9, and slightly modified by me:

a. I will not claim that writing ships which I do not endorse would make JKR a bad or cheesy writer. My judgement of the quality of her writing will be based on other criteria than which ships she chooses to write.
b. I will not leave the fandom due to the outcome of the romantic subplots. If I am proven wrong, and I choose to leave for other reasons, I will at least remain long enough to concede.
c. If a competing ship sails in canon, I will congratulate those who had the foresight to ship it.
d. If I am proven wrong in my beliefs, I will blame MY OWN JUDGEMENT, and not the author or anyone else. I will acknowledge to all and sundry that I was wrong -- not only about the outcome but about my interpretations of many aspects of the story -- and I will try to use the experience to improve my interpretation and prediction skills.
e. I will reserve judgement on whether any particular subplot or development is good, bad, or enjoyable to me personally until after I have actually read it.

Amen, word, ditto!

Especially d. In addition:

If H/H sails and JKR actually did mean they were "very platonic" only in GoF, then I would blame MY OWN JUDGEMENT if it turns out she meant H/H "all along".

If H/H sails but it is only starting in HBP (and the H/H-ers just got lucky in guessing right) then I concede them nothing, but I will go along with whatever JKR writes.

If I have been mistaken in my interpretation, I will eat humble pie and use this experience to better my interpretation and prediction skills.

The one thing I won't do is call JKR a "hack" or a "cheesy" writer if she writes a different romantic subplot than the one I expect. I am more anti-H/H than pro-R/H or pro-H/G, so if for some reason R/H and/or H/G never happen, I would be sad for a moment, but I am sure I'd go along with JKR. It's her story, so I'll let her tell it as she sees fit.

BUT, if I am right and H/H never happens, then I will be even more smug :D.

Agreed - as long as I don't have to eat Pumpkin Pie. ;-)

BUT, if I am right and H/H never happens, then I will be even more smug :D.

Can't wait!

(OT - Firoza - may I pleeeease steal your icon?? I *really* want to use it on FAP - we have recently been discussing the whole hero/sidekick/Hr ->not the traditional heroine but IS a sidekick thing and it would be so timely to use now. If it's okay, who would I credit?)

More like perplexed but okay...I'll try to be impressed too. ;-)

OK; this is a pledge that I can actually sign.

I don't know if "impressed" is the right word here, because I will be incredibly baffled if JKR doesn't write H/G and R/Hr.

But then you've signed to giving JKR the chance to fill in all the loose ends and explain off Ron's crush while proving conclusively that Hermione digs Harry (clearly and unbelievably so more than Ron)- she's a great writer, she can pull it off... :P

Oh, and developing some H-->Hr feelings would be useful too- but no doubt JKR can convincingly pull that off too, we'll just see if she does.
