OMG! I just saw the pic of the 19 yrs later in your page. What the hell is that?! It looks like it's 50 years later. Maybe they will placate me by making it vague as to who is with who so people can die happily thinking H/Hr happened? Is that too much to hope? I mean they make the movies pro- H/Hr.
Yeah, it’s… it’s just bad. I wish they would do that, but I’m guessing not. :/
"Harry and Ginny make perfect sense."
Bahahhaha. I was reading that and I just had to. Yes, they make perfect sense cause she has red hair like his mom. Oh, the field day Freud would have with that one. LMAO
In the old days the question I was asked most often was, ‘how do you pronounce the girl’s name?’ As I expect you have noticed, I cunningly inserted the answer to this question in ‘Goblet of Fire’, when I had Hermione instruct Viktor Krum how to say it properly: Her - my - o - nee. I used to hear…
HER FAVORITE MISPRONUNCIATION OF HERMIONE IS HERMY-ONE. YOU GO, STARKID.
favourite book?: Goblet of Fire
quibbler/daily prophet?: Quibbler

SIRIUS. He’s my favorite of the three, as well. Not to say I don’t love the other two, but SIRIUS.
Hello! I love your blog so much! I wanted to ask you a question, I have no idea if you are informed but well...no harm trying.
Do you know when the London DH premier is going to play? I heard Nov 11th, then Nov 19. I'd like to go to the first premier to see the actors on the red carpet but I still have zero informations about it. I thought maybe you could help me. Thanks anyway.
Mugglenet says that it premieres in London on November 11.
“I loved doing it because I can relate to what she goes through. I so know that frustration where guys can be so insensitive….Hermione is so insecure about herself and she’s never really had any attention from a guy before that when she sees Viktor looking at her it’s like, ‘Is that guy really looking at me?’ … She does not know what’s happening to her and she gets caught up in this whirlwind.”—Emma Watson (via acciojordan)
“I’m so close to her that I feel that I don’t have to act any more. It seems like I’m barely doing anything sometimes. She turned into someone that a lot of people can identify with. She’s a great role model.”—Emma Watson on playing Hermione Granger (via acciojordan)
JK Rowling: Because I had glasses all through my childhood and I was sick and tired of the person in the books who wore the glasses was always the brainy one and it really irritated me and I wanted to read about a hero wearing glasses.
It also has a symbolic function, Harry is the eyes on to the books in the sense that it is always Harry’s point of view, so there was also that, you know, facet of him wearing glasses.
year: I'm a graduate.
blood-status: Half Blood
favourite book?: Gahhhh so tough. Deathly Hallows. PoA. OotP.
sirius/james/lupin?: James. James. James.
quibbler/daily prophet?: Quibbler. I like a little bit o' fun and fancy with my news.
favourite movie?: HBP, PoA
how did you find my blog?: Through frantic searching for other Harry and Hermione lovers.
why do you follow me?: Because everyday is better with a little H/Hr!
favourite book?: Probably Prisoner of Azkaban.
sirius/james/lupin?: It's always changing, but right now it's James.
quibbler/daily prophet?: Quibbler. I'd take a magazine that prints what it believes in over one that prints what the Ministry wants any day.
favourite movie?: It's like a three-way tie between Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, and Order of the Phoenix, lol.
how did you find my blog?: I don't even remember. I think it was the first blog I ever followed. Maybe LiveJournal?
why do you follow me?: Because I love Harry and Hermione together, of course!
PoA is my favorite book, too! And you’re so right about The Quibbler.
Haven't you gotten the memo? Don't read the books, read the interviews! :)
If I had to explain why Harry/Hermione makes sense I'd never be able to finish talking anytime soon. Differently from some ships, I don't need interviews to let me know why/how/when. I have the books for that. All 7 of them.
I wasn't aware that the only important things to remember about a person are how they helped save the world. If that's the case, Harry/Hermione makes perfect sense then. Sorry. I'll keep that in mind next time.
Did you read anything I said? That was in the first paragraph. Why don’t you go read my argument again and then come back with a defense that’s a little more intelligent and encompasses more of the points that I made. I won’t argue if you’re going to take the most shallow point I made and turn it into my entire argument.
Harry and Ginny make perfect sense. It seems as if every time I see you say Hermione/Harry makes more sense, it's because Hermione's a smarter witch than Ginny, or Ginny wasn't around as often in the earlier books. Neither of these have any contribution to developing romantic feelings for someone.
Anon, you may want to read some of my posts a little more closely. I would actually say that H/G makes a little more sense if we had seen anything in the books that supports how awesome JK Rowling says she is in interviews. Casting a mean Bat Bogey Hex, being snarky, and helping to run the DA when Harry, Ron, and HERMIONE were off saving the world just don’t, in my opinion, measure up to either how obviously incredible Hermione is or to how Rowling makes Ginny seem when she’s being interviewed.
I am not a fan of Harry/Ginny because I don’t feel that her character was developed enough for such a strong leading man as Harry. Obviously, Harry’s character was very developed and he grew an incredible amount throughout the books—as did Ron and Hermione. Ginny followed what I would assume the normal course of action for a teenage girl would be: she was a shy 10 year old when we first met her, she came into her own, and became a pretty, popular young woman. However, being pretty and popular also don’t really have much of a contribution to developing romantic feelings for someone. They help, of course, but knowing somebody’s personality is what really does it, I think. Hermione seems like the more natural choice to me not because I don’t think Ginny has a good personality or because I don’t like her as a character; I just don’t know her well enough. I know Hermione’s character almost as well as I know Harry’s (and the only reason I know Harry’s better is because the book is written in his point of view). I know very little about Ginny’s character, so their relationship doesn’t make much sense to me. While I’m not a huge fan of Ron/Hermione, I have to admit that their relationship does, in a way make sense, but I say this because I know both characters very well. Ginny just doesn’t leave a lasting impression on me because, although Harry may have seen her in parts of the story that weren’t relayed to the reader, those parts of the story don’t really count in terms of a relationship that is supposed to be part of this narrative. James and Lily are different because their relationship takes place in a different time than Harry’s and Ginny’s, so we have to take JK’s word for it. Not so with H/G.
Show. Don’t tell. If she wanted us to believe that Harry and Ginny were supposed to be together, then I do feel that Ginny should have been a more major character. I mean, even HARRY forgot the main part of her storyline, which is when she was being possessed by Voldemort. If he can’t remember why she’s important and he’s supposed to be in love with her (or at least her good friend at that point in the story), then why should we?
MA: Does she have a larger importance; the Tom Riddle stuff, being the seventh girl -
JKR: The backstory with Ginny was, she was the first girl to arrive in the Weasley family in generations, but there’s that old tradition of the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter and a seventh son of a seventh son, so that’s why she’s the seventh, because she is a gifted witch. I think you get hints of that, because she does some pretty impressive stuff here and there, and you’ll see that again.
"She does some pretty impressive stuff here and there."
Um… Hermione does REALLY impressive stuff ALL the time.
