|Reviews for Secrets, Snakes and Swords: Chamber Symbology|
| maripaz6 chapter 1 . 8/12
You may not have meant for this to be so funny, but it really is :'D I'd never heard of the 'symbology' of the Chamber of Secrets nor that of Gryffindor's sword *cracks up laughing*. That's ridiculous! And I say that as a HPGW and a Gin 'n Tonic shipper! Your last assertion - slytherin and gryffindor were doing it, is probably the closest to the truth symbolism thingie out of all, and that just makes me laugh so hard! That said, I'm not trying to talk down on your interpretations; they were very creative and made a lot of sense. Fascinating read!

This is really an interesting analysis! I'm not much of an H/G lover but am an adamant T/G shipper so I love this... Could you let me translate it into another language? I'll give all the credits and link back here! If you give me permission to do so, please please please PM me a short answer to this request, if you don't want your work translated, please also tell me!

I love what you said and it makes all type of sense. Like another thing that you gotta understand is when Gin actually heard the heroic things that Harry did it was the times that he acted like Tom when the horse. Tom Riddle she got understand it but even Dumbledore himself said that there was times that Harry Potter acted like him. So that goes to show that even though she ended up with even though she ended up with with Harry it would still remind her of Tom Riddle.

This is a beautiful way to respond to people's idiocy. Too bad a penis never really gets to the uterus.

I personally prefer the TRGW symbology, but maybe Harry's phallic symbol (the sword) killed Tom Riddle's phallic symbol (the snake) when it entered Ginny's 'uterus' (the chamber)...

I'd love to see your references. It's a great take on the scene and symbolism - although mine was slightly different. ;) (NOT a H/G shipper, btw)

I love this.

WOO HOO! Now, as someone who ships BOTH Harry and Ginny AND Ginny and Tom, I say this is really epic. Never heard of the Chambers Ginny thing before, but this is cool.

So, my symbology of the troll and Harry. Harry put his wand (phallic object?) in the troll's nose, which is actually a symbol for the troll's ass. The troll puts his finger in his nose earlier, meaning the troll anally masturbates. Harry's wand went into the troll's nose, and when it came out it was covered with a viscous liquid, which represents the semen. The troll then proceeded to faint (perhaps out of pleasure). This is all deeply touching. I can see the hidden meaning.
Oh, and Ron uses his wand, to lift the troll's club with a levitation charm. The troll's club represents it's phallic object. Make of it what you will :P
This is all so deep. I feel so much like a genius. J.K Rowling's undertones of gay monster sex was ignored for so long! *cries*

Seriously. What the fuck. Don't you think you may be looking too far into these things?
Well, here's my interpretation according to yours:
1) Ginny will cheat and will eventually be Harry's downfall. And she will cheat with whoever Harry trusted most, like the relationship Arthur had to Lancelot. It can't be Ron, I hope not. Harry gives Neville the task of slaying the final horcrux in the final battle knowing if it failed he would die. Harry also gives Neville the Sword of Gryffindor. A knight is a defender of the king's life; Neville was given the task of defending Harry's life and ensuring his enemies died. Lancelot was the main knight and most trusted of Arthur. Ron betrayed Harry once, so he cannot be the knight. Oh yeah, Neville also defeats a snake of Tom Marvolo Riddle's. A snake held in higher esteem by Voldemort than even the Basilisk. Ginny went to the Yule Ball with Neville.
So the first was Voldemort, whose basilisk was then slain by Harry, and then again the same act is done by Neville, but with an even more important snake. In other words, Ginny first had a crush on Riddle, than a childhood hero admiring crush on Harry, it soon dissipated and Neville became the object of her affections? Ginny cheats on Harry with with Neville? Scandalous.
2) Ron enters the Chamber of Secrets along with Hermione in the Deathly Hallows, imitating the sounds Harry made in order to get a basilisk fang for the horcrux. So it was a threesome with Ginny? Kinky.
3) This is a load of bullshit due to either a lot of free time or loads of meth. You sir, need a rest. You are overexerting your mental facilities to the point of madness.

it's been a long time since you've written this story but now that we know that harry had a part of tom riddle's soul do you suppose that it would make a difference? would it mean in some way that the harry that ginny fell in love with was merely an allusion that ginny conceived due to her memories of tom? rowling herself said that they are perfect to one another as she understands him- due to her being touched by another version of tom riddle?
| AGB chapter 1 . 3/25/2012
I've actually never heard of that argument before and find that it is very interesting. And I agree with your conclusion. If you disregard the facts then what you're left with is Gryffindor fucking (pardon my language) Slytherin which, while intriguing, is less appealing to me than Tom/Ginny/Harry.

Wow this was deep, you had some really good points. However while i admit JKR is a genius i don't think when writing HP she thought about all of that. In any work of literature there is a certain amount of planning and forethought into each element of the novel however to create everything with a symbolic or hidden meaning for 7 books seems a little bit farfetched. You have to admit that maybe just maybe not everything has a deeper meaning, sometimes instead of overanalysing we should just accept things at their face value. Not that she didn't mean anything more by the chamber of secrets but somehow i don't think it really has anything to do with HPGW or TRGW. Well at least not as indepth as some people seem to feel the need to go into their relationships. But i understand the need to rebutt the arguments of some of the HPGW shippers ad you did a really good job.

Oh. My. God.
I think this is the hardest I've ever laughed at a HP fanfic before. This is beastly.
"... Riddle's basilisk spent more time in there."
"a living, breathing creature"
O.O God damn, i think you just created an essay about how big Voldemort's junk is. No wonder Bellatrix wanted him so bad.

That was actually quite interesting, though I am very tired at the moment and find what the HPGW shippers believe hilarious! The Chamber of Secrets symbolizing a uterus? What? Never heard that one before. I haven't read any Ginny/Tom fanfictions; though I do have to admit, the pairing makes sense.
If you pour your heart out to someone, write down your thoughts, trust them, even, they _will_ have an affect on you. Not always good, either. Ah, well, it's late. Goodnight/good morning, whatever.
