First, I guess this journal will probably have a few more Harry Potter posts than usual until (probably) the end of July, beginning of August. However, I will still try to pop others things in here from time to time.
(This explains the "give up" in the subject line, because I've been trying not to be heavily Potter to spare my friends who aren't into HP.

Second, I ache! Idiot that I am I decided that since I had a long weekend (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday) that all the yardwork must be done in those three days. *sigh* No, I don't have it all done, but at least the rest of what I need to do shouldn't hurt me so bad. Seriously, my arms are like noodles today, my knees ache, but it is really my arms that are getting me the worst, cause not only are they noodles, they are bruised and hurting noodles. Thankfully since I did so much this weekend, I shouldn't even have to do any mild work (outside my job) for a week or so.
Speaking of which, how the hell am I going to do my job with arms made of jello?!
However, since we had much rain this weekend my allergies aren't being a problem. SO I'm also thankful for that, but that is part of the reason I tried to do everything in one weekend, because once the rain ends pollen will be back and anything outside will literally make me sick.
(This was not in the subject line. ;))

Third, and finally, we get into the meat of this entry, or maybe not meat, just a question that has been nagging me for some time.

One Big Happy Weasley Family (or OBHWF for short).
I always figured this was just a catch-all phrase for Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione. However, the FAP V.E.N.O.M. forum has me believing it means more than that. Why? Because there is already a "Can't Stand H/G and R/Hm" thread, and FAP doesn't allow duplicate threads. Therefore, OBHWF must include more pairings than that. So my question is - What are the ships included in OBHWF?

Obviously, I know Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione, I also assume Arthur/Molly and Bill/Fluer. But what other pairings? Who are the OBHWF ships for Charlie, Percy, Fred, and George?
(Also, is Neville/Luna (for whatever reason) included in OBHWF?)

PS - Obviously, I haven't worked on any fanfic, but I am hopeful I'll have the first chapter of one of my stories ready to post by the weekend, because I'd like to get some feedback on both of them, but I'll have to pick one and focus on it. Probably the Buffy/Anita crossover since it is much closer to being finished.

PPS - Yes, I know this is April Fools day, but I'm too tired to play. At least here on LJ. ;)
 
 
 
 
 
 
To me, OBHWF is more of a concept. R/Hr and H/G are the main ships, but any Weasley ship could be included. To me, OBHWF is about focusing on the Weasleys, idolizing them, making them out to be the ideal, and acting like anyone would be lucky to marry into their family. It is making them the focus of the series, basically, rather than Harry.
The usual ships that are included are, I believe...

Arthur/Molly
Bill/Fleur
Charlie/ someone random, sometimes Tonks
Percy/Penelope
Fred/Angelina
George/Katie
Ron/Hermione
Harry/Ginny
Well, as a OBHWF expert, the OBHWF ships are as follows:

Arthur/Molly
Bill/Fleur
Harry/Ginny
Ron/Hermione
Fred/Angelina
George/Katie or George/Verity
Percy/death
Charlie/still undecided.
And we throw in Remus/Tonks for good measure.
Thanks for the replies guys. I guess I can't play in the "CS OBHWF" thread then. Though I in no way think the Weasleys are an ideal family, actually I think (in some ways) they can be worse than the Dursleys. Anyway, moving on...

I could almost play in the thread, but I actually like Bill/Fleur, Percy/Penelope (though I like Percy more than the ship), and I have no objections to most Charlie, Fred, and George pairings.

So, Neville and Luna aren't included in OBHWF... I really thought it was - I guess Rowling sinking N/L removed it from the OBHWF line-up.
Oh, but some OBHWFers make it their policy to support Neville/Luna as part of their sextet coupling scheme. They don't want to leave poor Neville and Luna out in the cold during the Weasley Family Holidays, now do they? They claim that Jo might change her mind about N/L, or that she never really shot down the ship.


OBHWF is about encorporating everyone into the Weasley family by marriage- or close friendship if no members of the Weasley family are pursing one or the other of the couple.

*cringes*
But it does explain why JKR gave Molly and Arthur so many children, when they have so litle material resources with which to support them!

At FAP, there is a CS the Weasleys and CS:OBHWF. I actually like the family, but diagree with most of the ships. LOL

And yeah, N/L is just a general side-ship. However, there are some devoted N/Lers, who ship OBHWF on the side. *shrug* Fandom has all kinds.

Harry who? :p
*blows rasberry*

I guess I could start talking about this awesome guy called Henry from time to time, as well. ;)
