Would you rather prefer Harry over Ron for Hermione Granger? Why? Because Hermione’s always there for Harry?
Ah just recently, J.K. Rowling, the author of Harry Potter felt that it’s how it should have ended as Ron and Hermione’s personalities are completely incompatible.. and only to end up retracting on what she said days later.
Anyway, let’s answer the issues and possibilities.
As Rowling even said, Ron has to work on his self-esteem while Hermione needs to be less critical for their relationship to work. How do we see this? Hermione could only be appreciative of her partner if he is actually better than she is, otherwise, the relationship is going to be a failure. This is probably why Rowling saw that counseling could help strengthen their “togetherness.”
Wait. If that’s the case, Ron and Hermione could last together but they would not really be happy. This means, if Harry and Hermione crosses their paths in a “conducive” scenario, she could end up expressing her desires.. and who knows what could happen next regardless if they only saw each other as friends.
Now about Harry and Ginny, Ron Weasley’s sister.
So, what makes many think they are not good for each other? That they are not compatible? That their relationship came out of the blue? That Ginny is Harry’s best friend’s sister? Come on. If you’ve been in love, you should know that love works in mysterious ways.. or Rowling’s pen that is.
Among the many reasons, only two are worth answering here; but we’ll leave the incompatibility to your imagination and take on the “best friend’s sister” issue instead.
Okay.. best friend’s sister? That code is only good if you guys simply want fun. Like, of course I don’t want my sister to be used then dumped after my friend gets bored. See? But if your best friend is a real “good” guy per se, you’d certainly want your sister to be with familiar and safe hands. Makes sense?!
In the end, though it would really be nice to see Harry and Hermione ending up with each other, it’s not about who goes to who.. it’s about Rowling. She just seems to be trying to create some buzz.
And more importantly, it’s about the “misalignment” of the novel to the movie. Rowling should have just focused on what she really wanted to create, and insisted on not commercializing the characters’ relationship with each other instead presenting the real Ginny, the real everybody in the film as to what her novel says.
