i’m actually even more confused/amused by anon’s issues with hagrid/hermione, because while it’s incredibly unrealistic (and like i said, i happen to really like snape/hermione) hagrid is still way cooler and nicer and more admirable than snape
i honestly have no problem with shipping hermione/snape even if i don’t personally because i mean i ship some way more distasteful ships myself so i really cannot judge and i’m sure when it’s done well and mindfully of both of their characters then it’s great
but for me it’s really not even anything to do with hagrid and snape’s relative goodness and badness (if i refused to ship bad characters with good ones i’d have very few ships left!!!) it’s just that one of them is coming from a position of respect for hermione and the other is coming from a position of condescension and regular outright cruelty??? i mean personally i don’t feel that either hagrid or hermione would ever ever see each other that way; it’s very much a position of teacher/staff to pupils of whom he’s platonically very fond, for me that’s all i see and the idea of anything else personally is weird and uncomfortable (but that’s my personal stance!!) — but really for somebody to be so rude about hagrid/hermione shippers when their ship is arguably as fucked up in a lot of ways (not the same way apart from the teacher/student thing but still in a lot of ways) is kind of messy you know
no i feel exactly the same way about hagrid/hermione (though i recognize how hypocritical that is lol) but i have a serious issue with writing off any ship at all as bad and wrong, because while there are some ships that will never be healthy dynamic (voldemort/anyone), there is always a way of writing about/enjoying that ship without condoning the unhealthy aspects. and that’s pretty my main issue with jkr, because while there will always be both fic writers who condone abuse and fic writers who don’t, jkr was ultimately the one person who got to decide what happened in canon and she decided wrong.
Just finished rereading Deep Wizardry by Diane Duane which has been my favorite book since I was in 5th grade and it makes me cry all the time ugh just leave me here to die with all my feelings about ancient and enormous dry-humored cold and impassive deadly beautiful self-sacrificing sharks named Ed.
