Hermione Should Have Married Harry Potter, says J.K. Rowling
When the Harry Potter series ended, many fans were left disappointed by the fact that Hermione Granger, the wizard played by Emma Watson in the film series, ended up with Harry's friend, Ron Weasley, instead of Potter himself. As it turns out, those fans have someone at the top that feels the same way: series creator J.K. Rowling.
In a recent interview with Rowling in Wonderland Magazine, Rowling told Watson "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."
As it stands, Rowling's admission of the mistake will likely be the only reassurance Harry/Hermione fans will get about the couple's potential relationship. A later series of books with a divorced, middle-aged Hermione and a sulking, heartbroken and single Harry Potter where the two finally end up together only currently exist as the plot line of approximately 543,963 fan fiction stories.
