What book in the series made you start shipping Harry and Hermione? Why?
There’s no particular book that made me start shipping them. I just kind of assumed that’s how it was going to go from the first book. I guess you could say I “knew” when Harry saved Hermione from the troll and, earlier, admonished Ron for being so terrible to her. I realize that that’s part of his character, but it still seemed significant to me because it was the first instance of Harry’s heroism and it was directed towards this girl that he,at that point, hardly knew and probably found just as annoying as Ron did.. The rest of the books, to me, built on that. The moments that JK gave Harry and Hermione and all of the instances in which they had meaningful conversations or were part of plots that Ron wasn’t a part of or had a smaller part in seemed more like clues than the arguments and annoyances that Hermione and Ron seemed to provide for each other.
Which Harry Potter movie has (in your opinion) the best H/HR moments?
Prisoner of Azkaban. The whole Time Turner business gives them great bonding opportunities and there are a lot of memories shared between the two of them that nobody else was a part of. That being said, I’m expecting Deathly Hallows to be rife with H/Hr moments and all of the other films have great ones as well (sometimes unintentionally).
If you were JK and Harry and Hermione got together, what would you name their children?
I’m not sure. I don’t think I would have them name their children after their parents or anything like that, although I do really like the name James Sirius. Knowing Hermione, it would probably be after some literary figures or authors. Possibly some wizard or other whose name nobody else knows. I think I would make their middle names the people who died for them (or lived for them) instead of giving them a mouthful of a name like Albus Severus. So there is a reminder, but it’s not so blatant.

What I Have Discovered by Re-Reading the Harry Potter Series
I’ve been re-reading HP since I’ve been home on winter break and am currently nearing the end of book 4. I’ve been reading the books with a mind toward finding clues for H/G and R/Hr. Here’s what I’ve found, based on character evaluation.
Harry: seems to find Ginny annoying and very rarely exchanges dialogue with her; seems to respect Hermione’s opinion, doesn’t want to worry her, persuades Ron to become friends with her in the first place, seems genuinely interested in what she has to say, and is in constant contact with her because they’re best friends
Ron: seems to find Hermione and her know-it-all attitude extremely annoying and often speaks to her in a disrespectful and, frankly, mean way. The only thing that points towards his affection for her is the missing arm of Viktor Krum after the Yule Ball.
Hermione: seems to think Ron is stupid for a large portion of the beginning of the series. Doesn’t seem to show any signs of affection for Ron aside from saying that, if he was so upset that she found another date to the Yule Ball, he should have just asked her himself; respects Harry, sticks by him when no one else (not even Ron) will, is a true friend to him and deeply and truly cares about what he thinks and feels.
Ginny: is Harry’s #1 fangirl. Obviously has a crush on him. Speaks to him very rarely and, when she does, she stammers and blushes so that Harry finds it extremely awkward to speak to her. Her character is, thus far, very underdeveloped and the most we know about her at this point is that she has a monster crush on Harry that borders on obsession.
I’m not sure what to make of all of this yet, but what I’ve found so far is that none of the pairs that are canon seem to have any basis for a relationship. As the relationships are developed and solidified in book 6 and I’m at the end of book 4, I thought that there would be more there by now that I had maybe missed the first several times I read the books, but I haven’t found anything that I didn’t see the first times. Any thoughts?
