J.K. Rowling Says Harry Potter & Hermione Granger Should Have Been Together!

jk rowling admits harry potter and hermione granger should have been together

Believe it or not, if you were one of the Harry Potter fans who was upset that Harry and Hermione Granger didn’t end up together, then you had reason to be!

And J.K. Rowling has something very important to tell you about The Relationship That Should Have Been.

In an interview with the Sunday Times, done by Emma Watson, the author explains why she had Hermione and Ron Weasley end up as lovahs:

“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 know, I’m sorry, 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.”

Um, SHOCKED! But we can’t blame Miz Rowling for following her heart!

As for people who think Harry and Hermione were still better suited for each other, the author and the actress agree! Rowling said they “were a better match” and Emma added:

“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.”

While Harry and Hermione would have made more sense, the series wasn’t bad because of the switch! It’s still totally magical and fantastical and in the end they all found love!

    Part of me wishes it was this way, Harry and Hermione but to be honest, they are a lot a like and sometimes when two people are so much alike they don't work. I also think who else could have Ron ended up with? and Ginny ? She loved harry no matter what. So to me its fine the way it is

    it should have been draco and hermione (hermione would have been trying to help him threw his problems, they possibly would have met at work again), harry and ginny, and ron and some girl auror.. perfect little world… and this greengrass chick would then end up with theodore nott, but that'd be irrelevant!

    J.K. Can shove it! She gave up at the end and screwed it all up. And needs to shut up now with her shoulda woulda coulda. I disagree Harry should have been with Ginny and DID!

    I think Harry and Ginny work because she knew what it was like to have her mind taken over by Voldemort. I feel like that was such a personal thing that Harry went through, that it was great that he had someone who understood. Also, it made him officially part of the Weasley family.
    But it never seemed right for Hermione and Harry to be together. They were just friends and they made it clear throughout the books. If it wasn't Ron, then I still would rather it be someone other than Harry.

    Now we understand why Rowling left producers and scriptwriter destroy Ginny image in the movies. And why not show the strength and maturity of Ginny, and turned her into a simple 'piece of meat' who married Harry.
    Rowling created magic in 7 books, and in one interview destroyed all magic.

    I loved JK Rowling because she had not followed the easy and futile cliché, between hero and super smart girl (so common in all stories for teenagers). But then she cheated me. I hate to have wasted so much time dedicated to Harry Potter…

    I'm devastated…

    Harry and Hermione doesn't really make sense if you read the series. It's told from Harry's point of view and not once does Harry seem to be attracted to Hermione. While since book 3 both Ron and Hermione have been interested in each other. I don't see how someone who is not interested in a person at all is a better match for them. Personally I really like Harry and Hermione's friendship, and them being paired together really ruins it. And one of my favorite things about the Harry Potter series as a whole was that it wasn't cliche enough to put the male main character with the female main character. So this is kind of sad.

    Re: bia – I totally agree.

    Re: bia
    Agree Bia,
    Yesterday was rereading the book 7 and thinking how wonderful is Ginny has the power to understand Harry's heart. Hermione was Harry's best friend really. But Hermione for being so wise often imposing and almost outweighed her wisdom above Harry. Harry after having suffered so much, needed someone to give him peace and quiet. That someone was Ginny. Hermione needs a man with light work, that will give her reason to argue and show her wisdom. This men is Ron…

    JK Rowling said in an interview she is feminist. If she is, why let ruin Ginny character in the movies. Ginny in the BOOKS is the total symbol of being a feminist. fighter, brave, patient and understanding. In the films Harry only sees Ginny as someone attractive. What a let down.

    Today these J. K. Rowling words about Harry and Hermione broke my heart and I am deeply disappointed :(

    "While Harry and Hermione would have made more sense" Are you kidding me? Harry and Hermione as a romantic pairing make absolutely NO SENSE at all. JKR is simply over-analyzing now. She had it right the first time. Harry/Hermione as anything other than platonic is misguided and ridiculous.

    Loving watching the delusional canon shippers wail.
    Of COURSE it should have been Harry and Hermione. Utterly bizarre some of the justifications below - too alike? What, you mean actually compatible and capable of enjoying each other's company without arguing all the time? Yes, what a terrible start to a relationship. I personally would much rather be with someone who doesn't really like me, finds fault with everything I do and goes out of their way to annoy me. Talk about delusional.

    Rewrite the last couple of books, JK, and do it bloody right this time.

    I don't even think Ron and Hermione would ever be friends if Harry wasn't present in the books! Ron didn't even lighten up Hermione, he made Harry laugh and provided him with the chance to share his family. So, since Ron's a brother figure - technically Ginny could pass as Harry's sister (not to mention his mum! Ew…) Ginny could have been paired with Draco, that would have been awesome (Romeo + Juliet anyone?) Besides she was in love with the legend of Harry but she didn't really know him at all - save for tying his shoelaces and being stupid enough to open the Chamber of Secrets.

    Hermione was the one who understood Harry better than anyone, she started off as his best friend but should've nded up much more - (she left er parents and stayed to help keep him alive!) So, excuse her for being the predictable, boring, kill joy know-it-all!

    Harry and Hermione aren't perfect but they are compatible. I wanted them together based on the depth of their relationship, the balance and equality. Not because the hero always gets the girl or the stupid alpha male alpha female theory some of you are sprouting! I read the books too but from what I saw…the interactions and moments between the two are intimate and beautiful - riding Buckbeak, the Yule Ball, Bill and Fleur's wedding, the graveyard scene, 'I now declare you bonded for life…'

    And they weren't like siblings because they had no siblings - the only example they had were Dudley and The Weasleys and even then Ron didn't treat Ginny like that at all!
    "She's like a sister"…that quote does not affect me in the slightest because if you know Harry, then you'd know that him being the stupid noble self sacrificing idiot he is, more likely said this to convince his friend out of guilt and loyalty.

    Re: Ian

    I agree with you. What kind of relationship is everyone rooting for? verbal abuse over mutual understanding? What kind of romance are people into?! Bloody Edward and Bella all over again! (Not that I even consider Twilight on par with Harry Potter!)

    I hope JK decides to include Harry and Hermione's ending to her play at least…

    I don't understand the "Harry/Hermione" are too similar or too cliched arguments. One big happy Weasley family was less cliche? I think Harry and Hermione would have been good together if the author had let them-like she said, it always felt contrived and like she had to force the characters of Ron and Hermione into liking each other rather than let it evolve organically. That's just my take on it. Maybe she could at least make an edit where the epilogue is removed? The fact that were together 19years later that boggles my mind. I like Ron, but if I were Hermione's friend, I would have told her to move on to someone else.
