So Gawker published a bit of a clickbait-y piece earlier this week saying that if you buy or want a Harry Potter engagement ring, like the one created by this Etsy vendor, you might have made several poor life choices and probably aren't ready to get angry.
Being a writer of YA books, I'm tired of my tribe getting picked on, and so I wrote a response, which got a lot of feedback over on Home For Wayward Geeks yesterday. In it I defend the right to, well, do whatever makes you happy, really. But I feel like it's become a new thing, taunting adult readers of YA and children's literature to get page views, and the entire article upset me.
I did, however, link to a bunch of very cool rings, engagement and otherwise, based on Star Wars, Batman, and more. Because they're really pretty.
What do you think about Harry Potter engagement rings? Are rings like this a sign of truly knowing what makes your partner happy?
