Harry Potter or Ron Weasley? Lets Get Real...

On February 2nd, The Daily Mail posted the following article:

JK Rowling admits Hermione should have married Harry

She stated that she basically had Ron and Hermione end up together to make a majority of her fans happy. I am just glad she admitted that if she could go back she'd put Hermione ending up with Harry. Don't hate me, but I have always wished for a Harry/Hermione romance. Yes, I even wrote a fan fic about it. I know, I know, I'm one of thoooooose Potter people, but you can't disagree with me completely.

Hermione needed someone who could truly challenge her. Lets get real, Ron can't do that. The only challenge he was capable of was making her jealous. To me, they were so boring. Harry really understood Hermione and they were alike in a lot of ways but they also had a balance of differences that could have completed them as a couple. I remember reading the epilogue and getting angry when I finally got to see who ended up with who. Sure, Ron and Hermione could have had an adolescent romance but I really don't think they would have made it into a an adult one. Ginny is nice and all but, to me, she was on a different level. Harry and Hermione just always seemed like they were on the same page.

I'll never forget when I read the chapter where Hermione is all upset because of Ron leaving (while they were hunting for Deathly Hallows) and Harry got her to dance with him in their tent. I tell myself that was JK's way of giving us Hermione/Harry fans a little bit of romance hope. I loved that scene and it's one of my favorite parts in all the books.

And if it wasn't going to be Harry then it should have been Draco! That evil blond could have really given Hermione a challenge or two. (Or three or four). I can't lie, I wrote a Hermione/Draco fan fic too.

Even though the books and movies make the love story Ron and Hermione, it has been anything but for me.

What do you think? I'd love to hear you guys weigh in on this.

  1. I can't agree with the Draco idea, but I totally agree about Harry/Hermione.
