J.K. Rowling Regrets The Ron And Hermione Romance

J.K. Rowling Regrets The Ron And Hermione Romance

“I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment. 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 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.”

Ron and Hermione shippers, what say you about J.K. Rowling‘s revelation — in Wonderland magazine — that she regrets pursing the love story between the two in the Harry Potter series? In fact, Rowling says that the smart and capable Hermione would have been “a better match” for Harry himself. Emma Watson, who covers and guest edits the issue of Wonderland, agreed with Rowling, writing, “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.” Those fans certainly exist and these new comments from Rowling certainly have renewed that fight online, in the bowels of Harry Potter fandom.
