(Attention Sis: Minor HP Spoiler here, but not a biggie…)The San Francisco Chronicle takes a look at “shipping” in Harry Potter fandom. (Shipping refers to “relationshipping,” the championing of certain romantic pairings over others.) Apparently the Harry/Hermione shippers are majorly up in arms over the end of Half-Blood Prince. I just don’t get it. I mean, it’s been obvious from both the books and the movies that Ron and Hermione are going to get together, and it’s been especially overt since Goblet of Fire. (The article way overstates the status of their relationship, though. They didn’t “fall” into each other’s arms at all.) Harry and Ginny wasn’t as obvious, but it’s still not like it was a complete shock…
