Veela were women…the most beautiful women Harry had ever seen…except that they weren’t-they couldn’t be-human. This puzzled Harry for a moment while he tried to guess what exactly they could be; what could make their skin shine moon-bright like that, or their white-gold hair fan out behind them without wind…but then the music started, and Harry stopped worrying about them not being human-in fact, he stopped worrying about anything at all.
The veela had started to dance, and Harry’s mind had gone completely and blissfully blank. All that mattered in the world was that he kept watching the veela, because if they stopped dancing, terrible things would happen.
And as the veela danced faster and faster, wild, half-formed thoughts started chasing through Harry’s dazed mind. He wanted to do something very impressive, right now. Jumping from the box into the stadium seemed a good idea…but would it be good enough?
'Harry, what are you doing?' said Hermione’s voice from a long way off.
The music stopped. Harry blinked. He was standing up, and one of his legs was resting on the wall of the box. Next to him, Ron was frozen in an attitude that looked as though he were about to dive from a springboard.
People need to consider, movie characters and its relationships are way too diferent from the book ones. Ron is Harry’s best friend and he has a better relationship with him. In case you couldn’t tell in the movies, it’s because the movies suffer from a known stereotype that happens a lot in Hollywood called ‘the hero and the leading lady’ which caused many people to think that Ron is the 'bad' guy and H/Hr are perfect. Let me tell you something: Ron is a funny, clever guy but jealous, Harry is not just angst & suffering kid, he’s sarcastic, funny too but an idiot sometimes! Hermione is a lovable character, very real yet very agressive and not always right while M!Ron is the background kid, M!Harry has too much angst going on making people feeling too much pity for him, M!Hermione is too perfect, she knows everything and does everything right, it’s almost pathetic. So please, stop confusing the movies with the books and its characters journey. It gets tiring defending what shouldn’t even need to be defended in the first place.
- we aren’t on the same intellectual level - and I often have thoughts about breaking up with my boyfriend because of this (we can’t have a decent conversation sometimes and it really annoys me), which makes me wonder if Hermione feels that way sometimes ….
