illogical...

If there were such things as mates for Veelas and Werewolves, it is completely illogical for there to be homosexual urgings for these people. Their biological urgings would be so that they could procreate and with someone who could provide them with many healthy children. Spiritual/personality compatibility would come second.

Personally, I don't like slash at all-- it just doesn't do it for me, not for any other reason-- but this is really bothers me. That simply wouldn't happen, makes no sense, and isn't ratiional, you know? Like Ron and Hermione.

Okay, that was just my short little rant.

I agree with you - on a lot of those points. (I don't care for slash either, it's just not my thing.) That said, people who do like slash, for whatever reason, should be free to write the same cliche fics that everyone else does. I just won't be reading them. :)

It's true. It just doesn't make any sense for me at all. To me, if a cliche is well written, I'll read it even though it's been done a thousand times. Part of it being well written, for me, means that it must be logical. Hence my hatred for Hermione/Ron. It's really intense, if you can't tell.

As well it should be. He was nothing but terrible to her in the books, but claimed to be her friend. That's crap.

It's always so nice to find a fellow R/Hr. It's not that I think he could never grow up, but they are just so incompatible. When "opposites attract," there's always some kind of basis. For instance, James and Lily. While, James wasn't an academic per se, he was still very smart and would be able to keep up with Lily intellectually and got very good grades. I don't think that many people would be able keep up with Hermione, but Ron would be able to at least have intellectual conversations if he wanted to, but he just wouldn't even try.

I got yelled at this past week because the other person thought that it was just "so sweet and cute and they were meant for each other." Honestly, any other Hermione-ship (ANY) that I can think of would be better than R/Hr. Including females, which I don't find at all appealing.

Ok, sorry. I don't hate what Ron could be, but I do hate how he is in the last books.

i'm a serious r/hr hater. i must say i'm confused about why there aren't more of us. hell, even the actors who play ron and hermione said how unnatural it felt for them to do the kiss after being friends on the sets for so long. i've posted so many comments on this topic, its sad.

and i don't mind reading slash. its all fantasy so to each his own. sure it doesn't make sense when thinking of mating but what about relationships makes sense these days.

I know, seriously!

As a clarification, I have nothing against slash or homosexuality-- it's just not something I like to read, but biologically it's an impossibility. If there were a biological impulse for a mate, it would be a mate with which they could reproduce. I have nothing against other slash. Except if it's completely OOC- like Ron. Can you imagine Ron gay? I can't, because he'd be homophobic. With all those brothers and having to live up to them? All those complexes he has? Yeah, that would not work. At all.

Those are just my opinions, though.
