    This is actually very interesting.

  • Snatch The Snitch

    Awesome!

  • Meike Stormborn

    Interesting

    “for a game of chess- Far more important than being brave”

    Screw You guys, Ron DID sacrificed himself so harry and hermione could go and save the stone. THAT’s the importance of the Chess game (also McGonagall made that Chess game)

    that’s Also Brave. Ron IS Brave. Also screw you for the “who is the better/more deserving character” BS. Neville would probably be ashamed of you people.

    also RON WEASLEY DOES NOT: A. Forget to turn in his homework/doesn’t turn in his essays (we don’t see seamus and Dean turn in their homework either so lack of mention in narrative doesn’t mean he doesn’t do his homework ) B. Fall asleep C. HE DOES NOT CHEAT (asking hermione to look at her essays doesn’t mean he copied the entire essay also who other than the straight A model student doesn’t do this?)

    at least you’re not too much bitter snarkbags and accept that there’s reasons why Ron got stuff.

    “this doesn’t meant to sound mocking…” well it totally is. You sound like malfoy.

    At least you guys don’t diss Sirius.

    but of course you go and call harry “emo” and a “little B___” SCREW YOU OVER THAT TOO- HARRY HAS EVERY REASON TO BE LIKE THAT BECAUSE HE SAW A CLASSMATE GET MURDERED AND HIS BLOOD WAS USED TO REVIVE VOLDEMORT.

    (seriously screw the notion harry’s is Emo or Whiny- he’s NOT)

    & RON AND HERMIONE ARE BOTH HIS BEST FRIENDS. it’s NOT Either OR!!!! YOU CAN HAVE MORE THAN ONE BEST FRIENDS.

    (STOP IT. STOP DISSING RON- MCGONAGALL WOULDN’T DISS ON RON. NONE OF YOU KNOW MCGONAGALL- YOU CANT SPEAK FOR HER. STOP DISSING RON.

    F*** IT STOP IT)

    ALSO THERE’S ANDROMEDA BLACK WHO WAS IN SLYTHERIN- SO WAS REGULUS- THEY WERE GOOD SLYTHERINS. (well more andromeda than regulus)

    (the ginny theory was interesting)

    also i appreciated the luna love.

    oh the type A personality ravenclaw/Slytherin explains So much….

    (MCGONAGALL WOULDN’T STEAL LUNA STUFF-HOW DARE YOU!)

    for the quibbler articles well the wizard community Did put a lot of pressure/prejudice over goblins and restricting them. And Fudge was getting more exceptionally paranoid. And had Dolores “I’m a sadist prejudistic B*tch in pink and i love it” Umbridge as his secretary so i’m sure there’s some truth there.

    “OH rowling publish all your stuff…” you entitled little snobs.

    (SERIOUSLY STOP INSULTING RON (& the trio) For pete’s Sake!)

    (the pronunciation of “excelente” was pretty terrible.)

    I think Luna is a Perfect representation for Ravenclaw because’s she’s open minded and not-judgemental. and I think open mindedness should be a more valued trait in ravenclaw than just swallowing information and regurgitating info.

    so to sum up- THE RON (trio) BASHING IS NOT APPRECIATED AT ALL AND CUT IT OUT`

  • Anne Courtney

    coolio

  • Shelby Ann Dronen

    I agree with Trio-Fan on a few points. Ron may not be the model student, but I do think we forget sometimes that book Ron is NOT movie Ron! Also, in the grand scheme of things, he really doesn’t get in trouble more than Dean or Seamus. Maybe Dean and Seamus are getting detention left and right, but it doesn’t show up in the books because this is harry’s story.

  • Jenny E

    Misrepresentation of Ron Weasley is one of my least favorite things. Ron obviously has his flaws, but they are often not identified correctly and overemphasized compared with other characters.

    Ginny FTW!!!
