Fandom: Hey Arnold!
Character(s): Rhonda, Harold


a/n: I don't really know why I've been all Rhonda/Harold happy lately. I just love them.

I've also been meaning to put up a journal on DA about my thoughts on Rhonda/Harold-Eugene/Curly-Curly/Rhonda-Patty/Harold. For funsies.

Also, I once had someone basically say to me that Harold/Rhonda was gross because Harold was gross and didn't deserve her and it was the worst ever, because I love Harold SO MUCH and so it was pretty much the most worthless conversation ever. Also Harold being fat was brought into the discussion and I wanted to e-punch someone, because FAT PEOPLE EXIST AND DESERVE TO LOVE AND BE LOVED JUST AS MUCH AS ANYONE ELSE DOI! Beh.

I dunno, I just really relate to Harold on some level. I mean, I'm not really like him all that much, but there's some core part of his character that gets to me. It's got something to do with how he's cowardly and stupid and fat and he fucks up a lot, but he almost always comes through in the end. And when he does something wrong and knows it he usually feels SO GUILTY and just... he's big and dumb and sometimes a bully, but he's a good person.

Anyway, I love him.

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? Fat people are gross and clearly deserve hatred and scorn.


I'm going to ignore the fact that they do and revel in the cuteness of this sketch. I kind of love how much taller he is than her. And are those pigtails, or is her ponytail just sideways?

Oh man, I had your icon for awhile. BEST EVER. I love that movie. We have it on all day on Christmas. We watch the first one at 8 - watch part of another - go to bed - wake up early and watch until it's okay to wake up my parents - open presents - watch it until we go to my grandmother's - eat/open presents there - watch it until it's time to leave - go home - watch until it ends for the day.


Yeah, it was basically the most ridiculously stupid discussion I've ever had. It was the same person who drew over that one Rhonda/Harold thing I drew in iScribble.

I'm sure she'll catch up to him. I imagine him ending up like 5'9" and her getting to around 5'7"/5'8"? Haha, the scale in this picture is really just nonsensical - Rhonda's fairly tall for her age. Though, that might not carry past puberty and I'm sort of the opinion that Rhonda hits puberty early (judging by April Fool's Day) so maybe she's already had one of her major growth spurts? IDK I AM THINKING TOO HARD ABOUT THIS!

I am not sure about the pigtail vs. side-ponytail issue. I can swing it either way at this point. :D

lol, I may have stolen it from you...since I'm pretty sure I stole it from someone on my flist. I love that movie as well and that icon makes me lol all over the place.

I'm with you on your Rhonda's-growth-spurt train of thought. She's always seemed ridiculously tall for a fourth grader. But then, so has Stinky.

Haha, I love it! He's so pleased with himself and his major award!

I knew some boys who were really tall back then. Maybe not 4th grade, but by 5th/6th grade there were some already gangly boys. Also, I totes hit puberty in 5th grade so I can imagine that one of the girls would probably get their period young and be like: 'GOD FUCKING DAMMIT!' because that was pretty much my reaction.

You're making me love Harold and Rhonda/Harold! GAH, I ONLY HAVE ONE SHIP IN HA! WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO ME?! I just spent the last week online downloading like 60 episodes and it's all your fault. D:

Don't worry, she did that to me too. I watched ALL of HA! again because of her (except the movie because I can't find it :().

She did that to me too. Here's a link to the movie: http://www.veoh.com/search/videos/q/YugiAngel#watch%3Dv15064955bM5zmRde
You'll have to download the Veoh player, but um, it's so worth it?

Thank you! I hope I can get it to work :D (I have been wanting to watch it for ages).

I should probably feel guilty about getting you all into it, but I DO NOT. HA! was the BEST.

I hope that link that [livejournal.com profile] kristinkat posted works for you. I'm not really sure where you could find the movie. I've owned it for like forever, so I never needed to go looking.

*shifty eyes* I think I bought the movie the first day it was on DVD. I was like 'Hey Arnold of any kind on DVD? Mine! Now!'

I DO NOT REGRET. You should also totally love Eugene/Curly and Phoebe/Gerald woooooooo

But yeah, Harold is my second favorite - right after the ol' Hell Girl. I think he's hilarious and lovable. And Rhonda/Harold is so much fun, because she's so aggressive and he's like: "What? NO I DON'T LIKE YOU!!!!!!! ...okay, whatever you smell pretty...."

I just watched Ghost Bride for the first time ever. Eugene/Curly is a go. And I think I'm now a little too fond of Mr. Simmons, WTF? It's strange what a few years can do to your perspective. I'm loving things I never noticed before.

I've got 18 episodes left to snag. My hard drive is crying.

Oh man, BEST EVER. Mr.Simmons is probably the best teacher ever. He's so sweet! And I love that he clearly knows how poetic Helga is and he keeps her secret and encourages her and EEEEE!

I actually suck and still haven't seen every single episode. There's a few season 5 episodes that they kept on not scheduling and only showed like... once. And so I never saw them on tv and a lot of the ones that I hadn't watched seemed like they had dumb plots anyway. Though I HAVE to watch the Racing Mule, because apparently Arnold sings 'You Are My Sunshine' and it is THE GREATEST THING EVER.

He really is sweet. I'm watching New Teacher right now and I feel so bad about all the tricks the kids played on him. I like him because he's real, you know? He has strengths and weaknesses and hopes and fears in a way a lot of cartoon adults/teachers don't. A far cry from the "WAHWHAHWAHWAAAAH" Charlie Brown teachers.

I missed quite a few season 5 episodes, too. It's been a treat to see new (to me) episodes.

Also, everyone is asking me where I got the Helga icon I sometimes use :P I keep referring them to you!

And aww... I love how Rhonda is in a lot of way's Harold's opposite - she's clean and neat and obsessed with her appearance and he's all muddy and things. *huggles Harold*. I like him as a character.

XD Yay! I need MOAR Helga icons. But not really, because she's already in 3/15, which is more than anyone else.

I like that too. Mostly I just love how Rhonda/Harold sort of develops in the background of the series. They go on the ToL in the first season and she's pushy and he's like: "NOOOOOOO!" but not really at all (he SO could have gotten away if he really wanted to - he's bigger, stronger and older than her). And then they go again at the next Cheese Festival and instead of dragging him, they both just sit in their boat and smile at one another. And then Egg Story! Where he gets all teasing and is like: "I know you think I'm damn fine, Rhonda." and she's like: "I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT." But she does totally think he's damn fine.

Also, I'm all about how she's so hung up on appearances and yet the emphasis is on her crush on Harold. She also defends him in Weighing Harold at least twice. She does think he got super heavy, but she also sits with the kids at the end and is like: "Well, I think we all should be ashamed of ourselves for waiting here just to see if Harold is still fat." And then she's all happy for him when he's back to his regular weight.

And uhh... I got long-winded again. WHOOPS. YOU MAKE ME TALK TOO MUCH!

Anyway, they are adorable and I love them!

But I love it when you talk a lot!

And yes! She loves him anyway despite (or maybe because) he's not like her. And he loves her too even though she's a GIRL and they're all EWW.
And I love that episode where they were swapped because it's just so cute.

Thanks! Haha, I can't explain this sudden blossoming of OTP-ness surrounding them. I've always preferred Rhonda/Harold over Rhonda/Curly, but all of a sudden it's like THIS SHIP IS AMAZING AND WONDERFUL AND I WANT TO DRAW THEM ALL THE TIME! :D :D :D

There were a few other dumb reasons that didn't really hold any weight because it was all negativity towards Harold, which is not really going to affect my opinion of the ship because I LOVE HAROLD!

Hee, he is kind of lovably dumb. I do love Homer Simpson too.
