I'll take 'Words that start with D' for 600, Alex
Apparently Emerson isn’t receiving as much hatemail and fangirling as he’d like these days. Earlier he made a post on Mugglenet to help rectify the situation:
WARNING: This is a very opinionated post!
Keith Olbermann has made some bold public predictions about the end of the series on his TV news show, Countdown with Keith Olbermann. Make sure you read the second page of the article before making judgment. It is my personal belief, and not necessarily that of the rest of the MuggleNet staff, that he is not far off the mark in his guesses. Except for that whole Harry turning into a muggle business. I mean, really?
In other news, Scholastic has published the results of their fourth fan poll question. They claim a majority of fans - 56% - believe that Harry will end up with Hermione, 20% believe that Ron will end up with Hermione and 19% believe that Harry will end up with Ginny.
Um, was Scholastic polling people who have actually read the books? 56% of fans are wrong. Dead wrong. I quote JKR, in the interview Melissa and I conducted with her two summers ago:
JK Rowling: Yes, we do now know that it's Ron and Hermione. I do feel that I have dropped heavy hints. ANVIL-sized, actually, hints, prior to this point. I certainly think even if subtle clues hadn't been picked up by the end of Azkaban, that by the time we hit Krum in Goblet...
I would think it's difficult to interpret "Yes, we do now know that it's Ron and Hermione" and "anvil-sized hints" any other way, but apparently 56% of fans disagree with me (or just haven't read the interview... or book 6... or book 5... or book 4...). But then, many fans still believe Dumbledore is still alive, despite JK Rowling saying that he is "definitely dead." Come on, guys. Wishful thinking isn't going to bring him back.
Note that the question wasn't Who Do You Want to End Up With Whom?, but Who Will End Up With Whom?. There's a difference between wanting something to be true, and believing it is true. There is a word in the English dictionary for holding a belief without evidence, and in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary... I'll give you a hint, it starts with a D.
Naturally everyone’s taking his comments very well! However, it’s not the Harmonians that are winning the wank trophy this time, it’s the Good Shippers and some random Olbermann bashers. Over 350 comments so far.
-OMG. I love you Emerson. People are so retarded to think that JK's word is wrong. In the HP world, her word is law.
-first of all, 56% of the harry potter population have never been in a relationship and haven't picked up on like the 50 hints per books of ron and hermione. second, how have we not heard this theory before? is this guy gonna be famous if he's right?
(Yeah, Keith Olbermann’s going to go down in history as the man who correctly predicted Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.)
-Are these people complete IDIOTS! OF COURSE Ron and Hermione end up together and OF COURSE Harry and Ginny do! Plus, JK said so, and her word is god.
-The Harry/Hermione shippers were stuffing the ballet because you could vote more than once. I've actually given several Harry/Hermione shippers links to the article. And they still think Harry/Hermione. Most of them are pretty stupid.
-Maybe some ANVIL-SIZED hints fell on their heads, causing extensive brain damage?
-Hahahhaa - I love Emerson. Just for his cockiness and the fact that he doesn't care that he's being rude to H/Hr shippers! In all seriousness - 56% believe it's H/Hr? So that's saying 56% of the HP Fan population haven't read the books at all?
-Keith Olbermann is a hack. He is dumb beyond belif, okay well I don't know him but in his review of Beauty and the Beast (the ONLY animated film to be nominated for Best Picture in the history of the Academy Awards) he said it "lacked Disney magic." In his more recent review of Ratatouille he faulted the movie for not having really famous people voicing the characters. WTF?
-So, that olbermann article was pretty stupid. Have of his arguments are based on financial decisions and we know that JKR could care less about that. This is her story she came up with when she had little money. She's not going to alter it based on money, she's got enough of it. Olbermann is an idiot. In conclusion. She didnt think back in 1991: "Hmmm, i'm poor, but just incase this makes me rich, i'm going to write this novel in a way so that i can continue merchandising and marketing in the future after i'm finished writing" Anyone who listens to olbermann is an idiot.
-56%??....56%????.... 56%??????????? im sorry but i just cannot get my head around this!! how could 56% of harry potter fans be complete idiots??? im suprised they even had the brains to do the poll!!!! and because these "fans" (personally i dont think we can even call them that!) are so dumb that they beleive harry will end up with hermione, i think i should point out that the word emerson was refering to was DELUSIONAL!!!!!......56%? ???????????????
-HAHAH Emerson strikes again! As the H/H Shippers blood begins to boil, their hopeless ignorant dreams are being fueled by this poll! I have once asked someone, how they interpreted JKR's comment "Yes, we now know its Harry and Hermione" as ... 'now' not 'later'. Which is absolutely absurd. They are F. R. I. E. N. D. S.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Clearly, 56% percent of the people need to read the books, and need to get a big smack in the back of the head.
-its really stupid having harry turning up with hermione. I mean come on. Havent we given enough clues that ron and hermione like each other. Scholastic's polls are just stupid
-thank you emerson! if i had a dollar for everytime i had to argue with someone (regardless if they have read the books or not) that hermione and harry are NEVER going to happen, i would be richer than J.K. Rowling herself! 56% of those people must be incredibly eminently dense.
-omg, who the hell voted for harry and hermione? is it not OBVIOUS that its ron and hermione? pft its ron and hermione, harry and ginny. most defienetly DURRHHH dumb people who dont read the books or interviews *tsktsk*
-wait ... what's the D word? Is it dim-witted? Or disturbed? Damp? Dull? Dumb? ... just kidding. I know it's delusional. Nice, Emerson, I don't know who picked H/Hr on Scholastic's site...maybe they all did it as a joke. like VoteFortheWorst on American Idol.
-Ugh. I hate it when people ignore truth. Come on people! Harry/Hermione is like brother going out with sister. GROSS! Ron likes Hermione so he fights to hide his feelings. Hermione does the same. Also, Harry/Ginny needs more votes. They are so gonna end up with each other. That is if they both survive, but.... Get it together! Harry liked Ginny for longer than he knew, Ginny liked Harry for a long time even though she tried not too. It's called denial people! JKR wrote these books and she put in clues. If America had any decent sense the poll should have been different. I mean, Harry and Hermione!? EW! Harry and Ginny love each other. Ron and Hermoine love each other. End of discussion.
-the fact that ANYONE who has read any of the harry potter books and STILL thinks that there is even the slightest bit of hope for hermione and harry makes me sick. it's ron and hermione forever guys! :)
-hey people., okay, emerson may have gone a bit over the line for some of you, but dont insult HIM. after all, its HIS site... if you think he is such a *prat*, etc, what are you doing in his fansote? because, this fandom is an HP fandom mainly, but because its HIS site, and he supports ron/hermione, its also a bit of a ron/ hermione site. so dont complain about the comments he makes about whatever subject he chooses...because its HIS site...this amazing site :) lol
-ummm....what do you mean Emerson's post was unprofessional?? He is not ridiculing Harry/Hermione shippers because of their opinions. He said, "You guys are dead wrong." which you ARE. You think H/Hr are going to end up together, even though they're not. That is an incorrect theory as Emerson pointed out. There is a HUGE difference between wanting something and what will actually happen. You ppl can WANT H/Hr to happen, but you can't claim that they will end up together, when the boss, Jk, clearly stated they weren't. So don't be little crybabies because you were called delusional, and it wasn't Emerson who called you stupid. Stupid and delusional do not mean the same thing...so thank you for proving your CLEARLY superior intellect.
He's loving this, isn't he?
