mod note: I got several similar confessions to this one in the inbox so I’m only posting this one. Though I must admit i’m a little confused, Jo linked right to it on her twitter didn’t she?
I have never shipped Harry and Ginny together. I feel like the Weasleys were like Harry’s family, and Ginny should have been more like a sister. I adore the Harry/Ginny sibling relationship…
mod note: in our defense, she has asked repeatedly in interviews and press for people to call her Jo as J.K. (she doesn’t actually have a middle initial) is the name she took at her publishers suggestion because they didn’t think boys —the books were targeted to boys— would buy her books if they knew they were written by a woman.
He’s very realistic as a real person, but as a character, he’s just an angst and very unreasonable person, especially to Hermione and I really get why Rowling say Ron & Hermione will need marriage counselling.
People, please read the books. Hermione has been so good to Harry & Ron all along. Ron has started making Hermione angry and upset by lashing out his anger on her, when she did almost nothing wrong everytime.
Sure, Hermione might be selfish at times, like SPEW, but Ron is a totally different story.
First year, he made Hermione sad and almost killed her, only saving her from the troll when Harry remembered she was crying in the bathroom.
Third year, he ignored Hermione most of the year because he thought Hermione’s cat killed his rat, which Crookshanks actually knew Scabbers was unusual, and opinionated accused Hermione of not knowing why Lupin was sick and was rude to Hermione on many occasions.
Fourth year, he accused Hermione of having too much pride to ask them to the Yule Ball when Hermione actually found someone better and can fully appreciate her, then said she was ‘fraternizing with the enemy’ just because he was jealous and wanted to make Hermione feel bad.
Sixth year, he states that he doesn’t want to see his sister snogging people in public, while Ginny tells him that her love life is none of his business, and that he’s only jealous because he’s never kissed anyone. He then accuses Hermione of not having faith in his Quidditch skills when she thought Harry put Felix Fecilis in Ron’s drink and starts going out with Lavender just to spite her, in which he’s also using Lavender’s obsession of him.
Seventh year, he ‘accidentally’ interrupts Harry and Ginny kissing. After, despite the Horcrux’s effects on people, he left Harry and Hermione alone in their hunt, while Harry and Hermione, who both worn the locket at least once, was not so affected.
Which proves that Ron isn’t a ‘useless friend’, but only to Harry and no more. To Hermione, he has always been spiteful and rude, unless she offers to do his homework for him. I wish our fandom could be less blinded.
Sorry for the typos.
(he couldn’t wear the contacts though, they tried.)
I never understood why Voldemort was the only one who could fly without assistance. They can all levitate objects and make them move. People are objects. Are you telling me he’s the only one to figure this out? That would be one of the first things I’d try to do.
I can’t understand why people would forbid their children to read « Harry Potter ».
These books are my home, they are my light in the darkness, my magic when I’m faced with the harsh thing that is life.
And the thought that some children are denied this moment of happiness that reading Harry Potter is, just breaks my heart.
There is indeed dark magic at work in this world if children are not allowed to read a book about hope…
