Emma Watson & J.K. Rowling Delve Deeper Into The Romance That Could Have Been For Harry And Hermione

| Filed under: Film FlickersLove LineHarry PotterEmma WatsonBookz


We reported earlier how J.K. Rowling admitted that Harry Potter should have been Hermione's romantic Chosen One, and for many, it was like receiving a million Cruciatus curses.

J.K. and Emma Watson discussed more in that interview Emma conducted for the Sunday Times about how The Boy Who Lived should have been The Boy Who Loved Hermione!

J.K. talked at great length about how the Hermione and Ron were just not two peas in a pod mandrakes in a pot:

"It was a young relationship. I think the attraction itself is plausible but the combative side of it… I’m not sure you could have got over that in an adult relationship, there was too much fundamental incompatibility. I can’t believe we are saying all of this – this is Potter heresy! In some ways Hermione and Harry are a better fit…"

J.K. and Emma went on to talk about how the sexually tense Deathly Hallows dance scene in the tent showed the audience a "ghost of what could have been," and demonstrated how the two "needed to be together" in that moment.

However, the two did not rule out all hope for those who cherished the Ron-Hermione relationship, as J.K. mentioned that the problematic couple might work things out (perhaps through not-so-magical means):

"Oh, maybe she and Ron will be alright with a bit of counseling, you know. I wonder what happens at wizard marriage counseling? They’ll probably be fine. He needs to work on his self-esteem issues and she needs to work on being a little less critical."

Indeed, when J.K. talked about Ron's need to become his own man, Emma agreed:

"Yes, and until he does it is unresolved. It is unfinished business. So maybe life presented this to him enough times until he had to make a choice and become the man that Hermione needs."

It's hard for us to handle when two celebrities break up, let alone two fictional characters! We hope their love turns out to be an Unbreakable Vow!

    Forget this whole Harry and Hermione business, its was right they way it was written Harry and Ginn forever! Harry and Hermione were both only children, of course they were close, they were each other's brother and sister. Ron and Ginny had plenty of siblings to go around, they could not understand what it was lke to be an only child. Not only were the both only children, they both dicovered they were magical at age 11, and go introduced to there world of magic at Hogwarts. The story was right the first time around, don't try to change it now! Now both Harry and Hermione are a part of the famil that accepted them all those years as children spending their summer with the Weasleys.

    If you read the entire interview, you'd see that Jo never said she regrets putting Romione together. She never said Harry and Hermione SHOULD have gotten married. In a nutshell, they’re basically saying that Ron and Hermione each have issues that they have to overcome. They question is whether or not they would be able to overcome those issues in their relationship. At the end of the interview, Jo said they will be fine. No divorce, no unhappy marriage, etc… Obviously, they got over these issues to be in a relationship lasting over 19 years. Harry and Hermione were never in love with each other, that's why they never got together. Harry was almost ALWAYS annoyed with Hermione, he never understood her emotionally. Harry treated her like an annoying older sister. Ron, on the other hand, was emotionally available to her (in a way.) Yes, they did fight. They bickered like an old married couple. This was because they were in love but at that age, didn't know how to act on it. Ron was always the first one to defend Hermione. He cared for her more than Harry ever could. Despite what Jo said about Ron and all of his faults (yet decided to not talk about Hermione's MORE NUMEROUS FAULTS), I believe that Ron and Hermione's relationship got better and better over time. I believe that after The 2nd Wizarding War, Ron matured into the man that he needs to be for Hermione.

    If this is true….WHY DID SHE WAIT SO LONG TO TELL US?
    Potter is the result of greed, is promoted by greed and protected by greed.
    Could it be that YOU, the Muggles, are being prepared for Potter Book Eight and a general re-opeing of the goldmine with the blessings of the Brit media and establishment who have been raking it in on the back of the series?
