Much to my delight, J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter series are back in the news cycle. In a recent interview, Rowling has admitted that pairing Hermoine and Ron at the end of the series was not the most “credible” choice. Now, I love J.K. Rowling almost as much as I love my own face, but I agree with her assessment and would take it further. The woman knows how to build a magical world from the ground up, but I do not think matchmaking is her literary strong suit.
Here’s where I come in. Like most fans, I have all kinds of opinions about how the heroic trio should’ve been matched up in the end. Am I saying I could’ve done a better job than Rowling? No, that’s heresy. But now that the canon has been set, other options or roads not traveled can be dreamt about.
|Sure, Ron could handle all that. Suuuuure.|
|What sorcery is this?|
|Now that's a guy who needs to dip below his peer group|
|Look at this cute, socially-conscious muggle.|
|Um yeah, she'll do fine.|
