    I notice Harry & Hermoine never hit it off. Is this due to the fact a love interest would detract from the storyline?

    Because Ginny and Cho are obviously men.

    I'm confused.

    Did I just walk in on a comment from FFN?

    Why is the thread titled 'Harry's Orientation'?

    Who is Hermoine?

    Doesn't Harry and Hermione's multi-year and pretty much unbreakable friendship count as 'hitting it off'?

    Doesn't Cho Chang count as a love interest?

    Doesn't Ginny?

    So many questions!

    That was clearly patriarchy enforced hetronarmality making him do that. If only there was someone to tell him that it was ok to be gay he would be banging draco in no time. /s

    Harry had love interests that were part of the storyline, namely Cho and Ginny.

    Harry and Hermione didn't 'hit it off' romantically because JKR had Ron/Hermione and Harry/Ginny planned from the beginning and wrote towards that specifically. Refreshing to not have the main male character get the main female one for once, even if it seemed like they should have at least considered it.

    I do think a love interest as a main character would have detracted from the story, but I'm not a good judge of that since I dislike romance having much more focus than it already had.

    This post triggered me. What about people who have no arms? They can't hit anybody, you ableist. Please call them something else.

    Hi Alexx, what's up? :rolleyes:

    Also, Ginny called. She wanted to assure you that Harry is most definitely straight, as repeated rumps in broom closets can attest to.

    Harry didn't end up with Hermione because JKR would feel uncomfortable writing about herself dating a kid. After all, the know-it-all is Jo's self-insert.

    Enjoy.

    I wanted to put the Jackie Chan mind-blown meme here, but I'll settle for wait wut.

    But what about the ginger? Xandrel, don't be a filthy able-haired brunetteist. You're implying Ron--gasp--isn't a person!

    Fucking triggered, you- you harasser!

    Harry's orientation?

    Only a few possible answers to that...
    1. Roughly southwest.
    2. The fandom would tell us that the other muggleborn students received an orientation to the Wizarding World from McGonagall, while Harry just got Hagrid and his biased nonsense.
    3. You fuckin' wot, mate?

    Pfft, that's fine if you believe in things like so-called 'facts' and 'canon' and 'the author's own stated intentions.' :colbert:

    This thread could have been entitled "Harry's Deep Love of Magical Nipple Clamps" and in relation to content, it still would have made about the same amount of sense as "Harry's Orientation."

    The "Point Me" spell should be able to resolve this issue fairly conclusively.

    I think Harry is oriented towards Neutral Good myself.
