The Series is done, but everyone has their favorites...  
And I'm very fond of mine. With all due props to the Weaselys, I'm a diehard Granger/Potter shipper!

Let the shipper-fics commence! chickdilly, love, I can only hope that someone will write that Ron/Luna. It would make me happy! :D

BTW, before anyone freaks out, this is not an invite to flame. We all have our favorites!

There are a few cute Ron/Luna fics - though most of the ones I've read have been either of ff.net quality (read teenybopper) or are too b usy bashing Ron for me to enjoy. (Think of how you feel about Lois? THAT'S how I feel abotu Ron ... ) But I really like the pairing - it's cute and Luna is adorable. She's even MORE adorable in this book, omg ... though after this I'm kinda into the Luna/Dean love too.

But I'll read just about any pairing in HP fanon ... I've even read some H/Hr fics that I like. You might like madlori's fics. They're VERY popular - very long though. She wrote them ages ago so they differ from canon (from GOF I think) but they're good reads.

Btw, I role played Ron/Luna with a friend (another H/Hr shipper) for about a year in an RPG we were in. They were super fun to play - that's kinda how I got into the pairing. R/Hr is my OTP but I do have a soft spot for Ron/Luna. :)

For me, there's no point in bashing Ron. He's a nice enough guy and there really is no need to kill him in the fics. I'm not a big fan of books, but I've been following movieverse for quite a while. And I've liked the thought of Harry/Hermione since the first film. Watching them together in the movieverse, it makes perfect sense. I don't hate Ron and Ginny, I just prefer them with other people. Sounds funny, but I always thought that Ginny/Neville were a good pairing.

I could do without the movies ... in some ways I wish they'd never made them because they've changed my perceptions of the characters. And in other ways I wish I hadn't read the books until now ... because usually movies never are as good as the books. Heh. At the same time they're sort of like a shiney fanfic retelling of the story and I do enjoy watching them ( though they always make me kinda mad too ... heh ... )

I'm biased though - the movies have ruined Ron at the expense of Hermione (especially in POA - heh, i was pretty angry about a few things in that ... I still am, actually ) ... there is so much detail in the books that are left out. Part of that is they have no time for it but part of it is the screen writer has admited he's in love with Hermione (think of the SV producers feelings about Lana here) and doesn't like Ron. So ... one of my (MANY) issues with the films. I'm not a huge fan of Ginny - I don't hate her (I did in HBP but she kinda redeemed herself in this one) - but she's just sort of there ... but the films don't really show a lot of the interesting stuff about the Weasleys much - again no time.

Dan and Emma do have chemistry so I can see why folks who have only seen the films ship H/Hr together - but, I just never got that pairing. I actually love their friendship as it is. :) :) :)

Oh and it doesn't sound funny - a lot of people ship Neville/Ginny. Heh, then again in the HP fandom there are any million of ships ...
