Hermione Wound Up With The Wrong Dude At The End Of Harry Potter
We ship it.
Hermione with the right guy. And the wrong guy! (Splash)
Who didn't love Harry Potter when they were little? Or..you know...now. And forever.
In news that will be completely unsurprising to Fanfic writers everywhere, JK Rowling has told Hermione herself that she probably shouldn't have ended up with dorky ginger Ron Weasley.
Emma Watson is the guest editor of US fashion mag Wonderland this month and one of the perks of being Emma Watson is that if you have a question about Harry Potter...you just ask his mum!
In the interview, JKR tells Emma that Hermione ending up with Ron was little more than personal 'wish fulfilment' and that she wasn't really feeling it when she got them together at the end:
"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."
"Am I breaking people's hearts by saying this?"
Eh, we reckon it's fifty-fifty. Are you heartbroken or is this full of win?
