Besides, she realizes as she turns at a normal human pace, it’s only Harry. She doesn’t know how he found her but they’ve both made habits of showing up unannounced over the years. He probably just called Ron, who is slowly but surely getting used to the concept of a cell phone. She’s teaching him how to text.
Hermione looked ready to fling her arms around him again, but Harry was glad she held herself in as his head was still very sore. “Oh, Harry, we were sure you were going to — Dumbledore was so worried —”
“Sirius Black escaped to come after you? Oh, Harry … you’ll have to be really, really careful. Don’t go looking for trouble, Harry —
“And it hit — it hit — oh, Harry — it hit the Whomping Willow.”
“Harry, please,” said Hermione, her eyes now shining with tears, “please be sensible. Black did a terrible, terrible thing, but d-don’t put yourself in danger, it’s what Black wants. … Oh, Harry, you’d be playing right into Black’s hands if you went looking for him.
“Oh, Harry! Who sent you that?”
“Oh Harry, you aren’t going to pay attention to anything that old fraud says?”
“Oh Harry, isn’t it obvious?” Hermione said despairingly. “He’s jealous!”
“Oh Harry, this is so stupid —”
“Oh Harry — I’m sorry — no, of course I don’t — that was a really stupid thing to say —”
“Oh Harry, don’t you see?” Hermione breathed. “If she could have done one thing to make absolutely sure that every single person in this school will read your interview, it was banning it!”
“Oh, Harry, it’s you… Good about Ron, isn’t it?” she said blearily. “I’m just so — so — so tired,” she yawned.
Hermione glanced over at the back of Cho’s head and sighed. “Oh, Harry,” she said sadly. “Well, I’m sorry, but you were a bit tactless.”
There was a shocked silence, then Hermione’s teacup jogged right over the edge of the desk and smashed on the floor. “Oh, Harry, you didn’t!” she said.
“Harry, oh, Harry …”
… Oh, Harry …” She stared at him, then whispered, “Are you scared?”
Hermione turned to Harry with a radiant expression and whispered, “Did you really tell him I’m the best in the year? Oh, Harry!”
“Oh, Harry … not that again …”
He held out his mother’s letter. Hermione took it and read it while Harry watched her. When she reached the end of the page she looked up at him. “Oh, Harry …”
“You’re not going to go inside? It looks unsafe, it might — oh, Harry, look!”
“Oh, Harry,” she said wearily, “it’s a pile of utter rubbish. This can’t be what the sign really means. This must just be his weird take on it. What a waste of time.”
So I was just wondering if everyone saw the amazing new article released by yahoo news titled "Hermione should have married Harry Potter, Rowling Admits" The article is about how Rowling commented on it on the Sunday Times Newspaper! BAM!!!! :D
I hope we can all just have fun with this and not be tempted to rehash old arguments between shippers. The series is nearly seven years finished and honestly, in my opinion, what JK Rowling says in interviews has no bearing on anything anymore (and I don’t think it actually ever did). She wrote what she wrote and any regrets she may or may not have are irrelevant. It doesn’t change anything.
Harry/Hermione shippers are bullies, because in the film when Ginny ties Harrys shoe laces. Daniel Radcliffe has got dyspraxia and with that some people cant tie their shoes.
Thanks so much for your concern. Harry/Hermione shippers—at least, the ones I know—don’t hate people with dyspraxia. It is, however, important to draw a line between character and actor. Daniel Radcliffe does have dyspraxia. The character Harry, as far as I know and someone please correct me if I’m wrong, doesn’t. H/Hr shippers don’t hate that scene because Ginny ties Harry’s shoes and thus reveals his dyspraxia. We hate that scene because it was unnecessary, there was no chemistry between the actors, and it furthers a relationship that we don’t like. I’m sorry if our treatment of this scene has seemed rude or disrespectful to those with dyspraxia or similar disorders and I’m doubly sorry if it has been used to outright bully someone. This blog will make sure to be more sensitive about it should it come up, but please know that our reasons for disliking that scene have nothing to do with Dan Rad’s dyspraxia and that we love Dan Rad very much.
No, really, on both of our personal blogs he’s tagged with “future husband.”
