Post J.K. Rowling admits Ron & Hermione should not be together, but Harry & Hermione

J.K. Rowling admitted to actress Emma Watson for the upcoming issue of Wonderland magazine, and previewed by the Sunday Times, that the author thought the coupling of Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger was more wish fulfillment than anything else, including the literature of the Harry Potter book series. Rowling told Emma that Ron and Hermione would have needed “relationship counseling" and that she did regret, in the long run, putting the two together.

Rowling stated that Hermione logically should have married Harry, not Ron.



Quote:
J.K. Rowling: “I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment,” she says. “That’s how it was conceived, really. For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron.”

“I know, I’m sorry,” she continued, “I can hear the rage and fury it might cause some fans, but if I’m absolutely honest, distance has given me perspective on that. It was a choice I made for very personal reasons, not for reasons of credibility. Am I breaking people’s hearts by saying this? I hope not.”
Quote:
Emma Watson: “I think there are fans out there who know that too and who wonder whether Ron would have really been able to make her happy.”

I have an addiction to cheddar cheese. But it's only mild. Ever tried to eat a clock? It's time-consuming.

All my life or at least the portion where HP seeped into it I shipped HarryXHermione!
Now JK does this. I'm so happy I'm speechless

Well...she did say that she ended up marrying "Harry" in real life instead of her old friend who was based on "Ron."

I never liked how Ron and Hermione played out - it always felt like she was trying to force it too much - and that seems like it was exactly the case.

That being said, I'm glad Harry/Hermione never happened. That was a trope HP did not need...

I agree with one thing the article says though ........ Harry and Hermione's relationship always DID seem more like a brother and sister, so for that reason, I'm sorry to say but I don't think they could've worked out either

Ron/Hermione Shipper forever !! *waves flag*


... besides, if Harry and Hermione got together, than WHAT ABOUT GINNY!?!? You can't just LEAVE her out!!!!!!!

Wellm as a not Harmony supporter and a not Romione supporter, this news doesn't really touch me.
I'm sad for Romione fans, but their couple is still canon, so why are they complaining? Stop this! Think about poor people like me whose OTP are not canon and will never be! x)

This definitely isn't too shocking. I'm not upset with how things worked out though.

I'm heartbroken. This is fake right. There's no way JK Rowling can regret something she wrote herself. :/ It's so hard to believe. She can't... after all that research and spending all that time plotting. I'm actually crying.

I think I am a Harry+Hermione shipper now. I was never a Harry and Ginny shipper anyway. This is kind of shocking, but all authors probably regret things they write though.

LOOOOOOOOL i knew it!

by far i wasnt a shipper person, but just reading the books and knowing what i know of storytelling and character development, the Hermione+Ron thing was an 'Eh whut?' development that just didnt gel.

i totally understand how it is when an author starts out with an idea but as the story and the characters comes to life they start developing on their own. Harry and Hermione just clicked, they gelled. Ron and Hermione despite their Han+Leia-esque squabbling just didnt gel, not in a way that a couple should. if anything, they were more sibling like than Harry and Hermione.

of course i think we are all aware that JKR wasnt even sure Harry would survive until the very end when she was writing the last book. but it is what it is and at least the author herself came clean with this. which im very happy and proud for her, its not often that a high profile author would admit that they made an oopsie with their work (unlike a certain author about a certain One Ring)

I'll forever be a Ron/Hermione Shipper! Besides, Harry & Hermione did seem to be like brother & sister to me. *shrug* In the end, Ron & Hermione will always end up being a couple cos that's how it was written.

Now. As for two people who do belong together: Neville & Luna

I think Hermione and Ron was not really a good match either but I do not agree she would have been better with Harry. No, I would have seen her more with another character... maybe Krum. When we think about it, she had seemed to like him fairly well in the books and all.

I'll always ship Ron and Hermione! I feel that the friendship between Hermione and Harry was perfect and didn't have to turn into something more which was something I really liked.

Can she admit already that Harry and Ginny was a hoax? Because, in my opinion, that was more of a travesty than the #Ronmione ship. At least if Hermione was with Harry, Ginny would've been free.

*logic* Ginny needed a Slytherin. Ron also needed a Slytherin, I think.

I can't say I'm too surprised on her re-thinking Ron/Hermione. After reading the epilogue, it just seemed that after nearly two decades and from everything they went through, Ron had simply never changed.. I just assumed they just settled with accepting each other's differences since they always forgave each other in the end.

I could see Hermione falling for Harry, but I can't see Harry falling for Hermione.. From the books at least, he's never shown more than a brotherly feeling toward her. I honestly think Harry had more hints of interest with Luna if it wasn't going to be Ginny or Cho in the end.

Nuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh I don't like this article.

So what if Ron/Hermione needed couple's therapy? THAT'S HOW REAL MARRIAGES WORK. Granted, I only have my parents as an example.... lol, but I can't see Harry/Hermione working either. Like everyone's said, Harry only ever thought of her as like a sister. Lol.

Also, Ginny! I love Harry/Ginny! She loved him at first sight.

Well I am a bit disappointed with this revelation. However, any literary work goes through variations, changes depending on the plot as it proceeds. And also as JKR mentioned it was something of a personal wish fulfillment. But as someone mentioned it above, Harry/Hermione was a cliche that needed to be avoided.

Apart from saying that, I always felt Harry and Hermione's friendship to be genuinely platonic. The fact that they both were concerned for the other, Hermione was always the one to advice Harry, give him the confidence gives a very guardian and elder sibling like feeling. Apart from that their mutual affection, admiration for their talents was more like that between best friends playing together for the same sports team. Also it didn't really matter to both who the other dated, very much like siblings, as long as they are not with the wrong company...

Whereas, with Ron and Hermione, the awkwardness between the two always created that atmosphere that they both had feelings for each other but could never get it out clearly when they were in school going through their teenage years together, as it happens so many times with all muggles.
And if Ron and Hermione would have required relationship counselling later in their lives then I believe, JKR couldn't have written much realistic depiction and drawing parallels with the muggle world as this particular shipper. Which relationship doesn't have its ups and downs. It would have been a fairy tale ending otherwise!

Another thing, if there wouldn't have been a strong liking between the two, which I believe was much stronger than their disagreements, and with the kind of fights they had, the trio would never had been a trio and Harry would have been in soup with Voldemort...

But there is other side to Ron as well;this is about him being the support that Harry needs through his quest. I liked the scene between Harry and Ron in the movie when Harry tries to sneak off before the wedding. He is the one out there, reminding Harry that the fight with Voldemort is not just limited to Harry anymore..."It is whole lot bigger than that" and the book portrays him wonderfully as a supporting character in the books, especially the saving the elves in the last book...

But there always is the feeling that Ron will never grow out of his immature, arguing self he was when he was in Hogwarts. Yes, he was that way when he was a tween and a teen. But he has since then seen much just as much as Harry and Hermione and has developed in his own self. War can have a drastic effect on people and I wish to believe, Ron must have changed as well, matured much more, would have become much loyal to his people, Harry and Hermione but with mind of his own, even sometimes capable of taking decisions for the whole lot.
Or else why would JKR make him an auror in his later years after the war?

So I feel he will be much better position than what he was in his teens to deal with his feelings and would act in much matured way with Hermione and so would she.

But as it is said innate nature never changes, so, yes he still might be the one who argues to make his point. He still might be the hot headed one, he still might have the small insecurities like all of us, and he still might do things just to irritate Hermione like cheating in the driver's licence test...

And she might get angry to no end or she might even like his mischief. But she is just as strong minded woman as she always has been who will never back down an argument, either. So I totally believe relationship counseling on the tarot cards for both of them...

So here ends my character analysis... Sorry for boring you all...

I never shipped Harry/Hermione. I've never questioned Ron/Hermione, either, so I can't even think about shipping them with anyone else. I love Harry/Ginny in the BOOKS, but goooolly, the Harry/Ginny moments in the movies were terrible.

I am also waiting for her to reveal that Luna/Neville were destined to be together.
