do u ever get disappointed that the most popular HP ship is drarry? it's so bland to me. idk of others find it bland but i hope its not just me. like it's not a necessarily bad ship, it's just idk meh
is it the most popular HP ship?
I mean… I guess to me I find that disappointing because 1 - the author never intended it and 2 - despite the fact that the original writer never had that ship in mind, I feel like it IS the obvious choice and maybe SHOULD have been canon.
1. Ginny showed interest in Harry from day 1, and from day 1, Harry was like, ‘omg, this fan girl, plz quit sending me singing shit okay, I am not into it, I hate your cards and your gnomes on Valentine’s Day, also you are drowning in the butter dish’.
…So that never felt naturally very canon to me.
2. Draco Malfoy basically begs Harry to be his friend from day 1, in the most ‘I am cool shit’ kind of way.
3. Malfoy continues to stalk Harry for like… ever.
It might be love.
4. The MOMENT Draco is disinterested in Harry (because he is like, preoccupied with trying to kill Dumbledore or whatever), Harry is suddenly OBSESSED with Malfoy. I know, it could be legit that Harry thought Draco was a Death Eater up to no good, but… there were more obvious things in Harry’s life that SHOULD have acquired his undevoted obsession before that which just… didn’t. Harry isn’t the brightest, but he does let his heart lead him in terms of obsessions, and by the way JK described it, it sounded like Harry spent more time staring at the Marauder’s map looking for Draco to show up than he did hanging out with Ginny, youknowwhatimean
…all that being said.
Yeah I think Drarry is kind of basic like where is the fractured soul crazy ‘I killed your parents because of a half-prophecy’ nonsense give me some of that complete and utterly fucked up shit
