What insane Harry Potter fandom are you from?

You, my friend, are the Canon Shipper. You are supporter of all of the relationships that are accurate with canon, and maybe some that don't go against it.

Some may consider you boring, because they may have already heard the phrase HERMIONE/RON OTP about a billion times, but don't think you don't have value to the canon. Like the Hardcore Canon Fan, you are a researcher, and know what it takes to put together your own HP renditions, such as fanfics. You are a worthwhile person to talk to, even though you're a tiny bit lower on the Nerd scale than the Hardcore Canon Fan. Either way, you're much better to have around than those annoying Pseudo-Fans. Geez. They never shut up.

Your Fandom Friends: Hardcore Canon Fan, HP Parody Fan
Your Fandom Enemies: Trolls, Mundanes, Pseudo Fans

Take this quiz!



Is anybody surprised by my results? Except the whole H/R OTP pair thing, which I could always change to R/T...

I found one for which OOC fanfic Snape are you! Option were things along the lines of SexGod!Snape, TragicRomanticHero!Snape, etc. I got canon Snape.

Snape shipping really baffles me. He's just not capable of being nice is he? jdbracknell and I had a conversation recently about how Snape dates. I can't see him Apparating his date anywhere, but I could see him giving permission to take his arm or something like that. And there's a kinkiness to that that disturbs me...

There is a small MWPP archive that I like because the founder of it maintains that there is no canon evidence for any of those four to be gay and refuses to archive any fics with them in relationships with each other. She also claims she will refuse any fic with Snape in any romantic pairing because that is just wrong. She admits she might be convinced to accept a Snape/? if it is well done and there is no running of fingers through hair because that would just be greasy and disgusting.

There is no way any sane being would willing date Snape and he is too full of himself to date anyone insane. Actually, I think he is too full of himself to date anyone other than a clone of himself.

I tend to agree - though I'm one of those people who thinks he lusted for Lily, and quite possibly all of the Black sisters, and maybe that taunting of Tonks in HBP was a hint at something there, too, and not just his Remus hatred.

I think he would fantasize but it would never work. First, I don't think he would ever think he had a real chance, especially compared to James and Sirius, hence some of the hatred on that front. Second, fantasies are great. They do exactly what you want them to do and never think for themselves. If he ever did get with anyone, I don't think he could take the reality.

I'm unconvinced on the Lily thing. I can see it as an explanation for several unanswered questions but I don't see any evidence for it in its own right, if that makes sense.

I think he lusted after Lily as well. Not saying the feeling was mutual, but she did feel sorry for him defend him when the Marauders picked on him. We also know they had Advanced Potions together with Slughorn, and both were exemplary students. I think they may have got paired up for class, and some of those scribbled suggestions in Snape's book were probably Lily's.
1. Hermione had some suspicion the writer was a female. If you think about it, can't you often tell gender by handwriting?
2. Wouldn't they have ALL recognized Snape's spiky writing? I'm certainly no analyst, but I could tell my teachers' handwriting apart after ONE year with them. They've had 5/6 with Snape.
I don't think Lily actually wrote in his book, but I think he may have copied her notes in the margins using a spell that duplicated her handwriting.
Might be nothing, or some of the notes were his mother's, but I don't think those notes were Snape's. His writing is nearly always described as spiky. From what I remember, the writing in the book was cramped, which reminds me of Ron commenting on Hermione's paper, "...and her writing's tiny." Hmmm, Perfectionist Prefect note-taking similarity?
I don't know. For some reason we were given the information that Lily excelled in Potions. Why is that important?

I read a fic once that had Snape using some kind of flame-retardant protective hair gel potion, which is what made his hair look so greasy.
Just sort of made me blink because I never would've thought of that, but I suppose it could happen.
I don't read Snape fics as a general rule, but I have read some that were done by authors I've enjoyed. Not many can pull it off believably.

At least we are supposed to be friends, even if you are higher up the geek food chain than me.

Sorry, I deleted the post because the white font was unreadable. And I put the ugly Snape pic back in, lol.







What insane Harry Potter fandom are you from? (grumble, grumble, I suppose you'll want pics...)




Look at you in all your canonically accurate glory! Thats right, youre a Hardcore Canon Fan! You do the job of sort of holding the theories and different communities together with your extensive research. You probably pride yourself on the breakthroughs you have made, and you deserve it. Your view of the HP books is probably very balanced and fair, and you might just find yourself right about your theories when the seventh book comes out. One thing that may annoy you (because I sure as hell know that it annoys me) is the constant blather on the internet from idiots that think they know everything about the books. Anyway, it takes talent to be a nerd, and a hardcore one at that, so I commend you. Your fanfics are awesome and any HP sites you have up are as well. Youre an inspiration to all us uber-nerds.Your Fandom Friends: Canon Shipper, HP Parody FanYour Fandom Enemies: Pseudo-Fans, Trolls, Mundanes

Well what the heck? Why does it keep changing the black font to white?
Ah well.

There is a bit in the copied coding from quizilla that tells it to go white. I had to edit it to black in my original post. Unfortunately with comments you can't edit after posting so the only solution would be to delete, copy the coding again, and change that bit before posting. Too much work in my opinion and I don't even remember which bit you have to change. It's fine with the white.

Alternatively: here is the text in a readable format.
