Are you a Harry and Hermione shipper? Or are you a Ron and Hermione shipper?
“I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment,” Ms. Rowling shared. “Thatâ€™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.”
She added, “I know, Iâ€™m sorry. I can hear the rage and fury it might cause some fans, but if Iâ€™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 peopleâ€™s hearts by saying this? I hope not.”
And it looks like Emma agreed with her too: “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.”
