Below is a list of terms and their definitions that are used in this fan fiction community.

  • Romione - combination of Ron and Hermione's first names. Invented by MsBigBad.
  • Heron - combination of Ron and Hermione's first names. Invented by Mugglenet. Unlike several other pairing substitutes, Heron can also used as a name for an R/Hr shipper, without any suffixes like -ian or supporter.
  • Good Ship R/H - The Good Ship: The name of the R/Hr ship, in lieu of an HMS/SS ______. Invented by the Sugar Quill.
  • "We believe in trees!" - The official FAP motto of The Good Ship. Inspired by a quote from alphabet, who said that previously she didn't blatantly ship R/Hr; doing so would have been like saying "I believe in trees"; it was just so obvious. All sorts of other users agreed with the tree analogy, saying that, like R/Hr, trees are "sturdy", "long-lasting", "eternal", and "they have to grow".
  • Saplings - a term for R/Hr offspring, derived from the tree motto.
  • "Rocks don't speak" - a catchphrase of The Good Ship, deriving from a skit where Ron describes himself as Harry's rock during the GoF period; Hermione points out that they weren't talking to eachother at the time, and Ron replies with "Well, dear, rocks don't speak, do they?"
  • heRmiONe - a term used by R/Hr shippers as proof that their very names show Ron and Hermione should be together.

ROMANCE PAIRINGS: Ron and Hermione have plenty of potential -- lots
of sexual tension in that relationship. I think
there's a possibility for Harry and Ginny, although I'm not sure she
is developed enough as a character yet for any of us to think
she's quite right for him. She had such a small role in POA. It will
be interesting to see how that turns out. She could develop
into a character that we will all think is worthy of Harry's romantic
partner. For now, I don't see any of the females currently in
the cast as being quite "up to snuff" (I think Hermione is better with
Ron so I've discounted her) [1]
It's not that I don't like Ron -- who doesn't like Ron? But, as
previously discussed, his insecurities and jealousies make him
unappealing boyfriend material for Hermione, and as for the
'consolation prize' arguement, I think that's condescending not just
to Hermione but to Ron as well. [4]

Today I realized that I wasn't a post-GoF R/H shipper for six weeks... it was only for seven days, thank goodness. "And on the seventh day, she found PoU and learned that there was hope for H/H after all."
--Ebony [5]

This post goes to further emphasize the influence that key stories like Lori Summers's Paradigm of Uncertainty had on other authors and those authors' ship preferences during that era.


  • On January 9, 2001, Ebony coined the term One Big Happy Weasley Family. [6] She will use the term again on January 22, 2001 with the acronym attached to it: "Nah, no-shipping is not a disorder at all! Just a preference. Now, the condition known as the One Big Happy Weasley Family (OBHWF) syndrome... *that's* a disorder. ;-)" [7][8] This term became one used against canon purists, intended to be disparaging. It would later be frequently used by other members of the Inner Circle like Heidi8 and Cassandra Claire. According to various sources, Ebony's creation of this phrase was one of the reasons that users from sites such as Sugar Quill and canon purist would not like her as a person. Despite this, the term almost immediately became co-opted by Ron/Hermione and Harry/Ginny fans as a way of insulting Ebony and others like her by throwing their words back at them.




Harry/Hermione, Ron/Hermione, Snape/Hermione mentions on blogs according to IceRocket for the past three months as of June 28, 2007.
