So if you guys haven't heard..... Basically, JK Rowling made an announcement that she regrets ending her story with Ron and Hermione getting together instead of Hermione and Harry. Here is an article:www.hypable.com/2014/02/01/jk-…
So. I am a little disappointed in her announcement, but not too surprised.
Here are my thoughts~
Ron and Hermione:
So. Don't rage, but I never really saw this ship working out in the long term aspect. I loved the fact the Rowling diverged away from the cliche "hero gets the girl" trope, but the personalities don't merge in a compatible way. It made sense that the two would eventually fall for each other, but it would be a passionate, short-lived fling. Ron is in no way suited to be with Hermione; he just is not mature enough for her and she would get bored quickly due to her superior intelligence. Plus, his temper and jealousy would caused them to get in tons of fights because he knows she is out of his league and would get too possessive. It could even become an abusive relationship: by no means healthy. I could never see them ending up married happily with two children (as the end of the books leave them off).
Harry and Hermione:
This could have worked out better than Ron and Hermione, but still not great. Also, Rowling set the two of them up as having more of a close sibling relationship than a romantic thing (and one could technically argue this could lead to something, but I don't see it). I much rather would have the two be in this really tight friendship than romantically entangled. The personalities just would not mix well; he would be a pushover to her strong will, and I feel she would still be too mature for him. They don't have similar interests, so both would get bored, and the two would drift apart, ruining their friendship. They could most likely make a relationship last, but it wouldn't be fantastic and they would probably end up rather miserable.
Harry and Ginny:
I really love this ship, in all honesty. One thing that Harry always wanted was to be a part of a big family, and this is how he gets that. Also, it isn't just ANY family, it's the one that practically already adopted him. Ginny (going off the books here, not the movies) is the perfect excitable tomboy who has the same interests and similar characteristics as Harry. The two would probably clash due to the similarities, but I see them lasting much longer than the previously mentioned ships. These two are evenly yoked in intelligence and abilities, so neither would get bored.
Harry and Ron:
Some would suggest Harry ending up with Ginny was because he had latent homosexual feelings for Ron, which isn't too far fetched. Harry and Ron are bros and spending a lot of time together in a critical point in the time of sexual and mental development, they could have had a fling or something. I don't think these two would last long, not only because I feel the time frame the wizards were in wouldn't be very accepting, but I feel they would get on each others nerves. Similarly to Ron and Hermione, they would end up at each others neck (as they do when they spend too much time together off the grid). They would make great buddies, but horrible partners.
Gah I'm too tired to do this right now. Thanks for reading my rant :U
PS I didn't proofread because migraine, so I apologize for anything that doesn't make sense.
