Joss Whedon, every relationship doesn’t have to end in horrible tragedy.
I mean I get that not everyone likes the epilogue (personally I am neutral don’t care HARRYRONHERMIONELUNANEVILLEGINNY lived that’s all I care about and I just wanted everyone to be happy don’t care how) but
it is just so Whedon to complain the ending was too happy because RELATIONSHIPS ENDED IN HAPPY TOGETHERNESS INSTEAD OF DEATH AND DARKNESS.
also why single out Ron and Hermione for divorce, what the hell.
Joss Whedon was probably a Harry/Hermione shipper
not of the “It’s not canon but I ship it whatever” variety but of the
“JKR DOESN’T UNDERSTAND HER CHARACTERS PROPERTY I SHOULD HAVE WRITTEN HP HARRY AND HERMIONE BELONG TOGETHER!!!!” variety
I see this reasoning a lot with various kid and teenage ships (Aang/Katara, Billy/Teddy, any of the Potter kids), that they can’t/won’t last because they’re kids. And, yeah, people still have a lot of growing and changing to do at that age, but people have a lot of growing and changing to do at 21 and 45 and 60. The important thing here is that they’ve all been through traumatic, life-changing, and life-affirming things together and that’s the kind of stuff that strong, lifelong relationships are built on (IMO.)
Plus you guys can buy wizard boarding schools, the avatar cycle, and the entirety of the marvel universe, but not highschool sweethearts getting/staying married???
I want to NEGATIVE LIKE THIS
fuck you joss
also blah blah blah bullshit
Someone who resurrects characters and put them into a teen-crush romance that should have died out decades ago just so he can be the one to tragically break up said romance yet again should STFU on the subject, Joss Whedon.
Oh, god, f’in AMEN to what northstarfan said. When you drag a long dead and gladly departed teen romance kicking and screaming back into existence, just so you can add death and angst, Joss, all I can do is add to the f*** you sentiment.
I also felt that Ron and Hermione would have gotten divorced. I’m sorry, I just do. The end of Harry Potter did feel ultimately to me…just the fact everybody had married everybody. The books were so real and so grounded in what things are really like when you’re that age, she nailed that so beautifully. And then there was this slightly fantastical ending. I know that was there for her to say, ‘Really, I mean it, no more books,’ but you do sort of go, people who were in a war are different from people who haven’t been, and how does it affect them? But I’m going to second-guess my favorite writer? I think not.
