J.K. Rowling Said WHAT?!

Not sure if you've heard or not, but there has been breaking news in the Harry Potter fandom today after it was released that J.K. Rowling supposedly admitted in a soon to be published interview with Emma Watson that "Hermione should have wed Harry."

Now, as Harmony shipper from the beginning, my natural reaction to this news went a little something like this:

I may have engaged in a teensy bit of rejoicing on tumblr, because after all the years of shipping wars and being called "delusional" by many (though certainly not all) Ron/Hermione shippers, I'm feeling a little bit like Uncle Vernon right now:

At the same time, part of me feels a little bad for Ron/Hermione fans. It's got to hurt to hear an author say that they regret pairing your OTP together (if Stephenie Meyer came out someday and said, "Oops, actually I wish Bella would have picked Jacob instead," I would lose it--ain't nobody coming between my precious OTP, Edward/Bella!). So, Romione fans, I feel for you. I really do. But I can't lie--this news makes me extremely happy.

What do you all think of JKR's announcement? Do you think it was wrong of her to say it? Will this affect how you view the books and movies?

  1. Haha I had the opposite reaction than you! Although that is because I am a true Ron/Hermione shipper. I just don't like it because for me the Harry Potter series wasn't about a love triangle at all. Of course I shipped Ron and Hermione, but I love this series because of so many other things. To me I feel like it makes it seem like who Hermione would end up with was a big theme of the books.

    For that same reason, I wouldn't be as annoyed if Stephenie Meyer would say she wished Jacob and Bella would be together at the end. And that's coming from someone who didn't like Jacob AT ALL. I would still be annoyed because I don't get saying these things after books have been long published. Just do it to friends/family, not publicly. BUT the reason why I wouldn't mind it as much with Meyer, is because the love triangle was the main theme of the book.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I read every single one and they brighten my day. While I may not be able to respond to all comments, I do make an effort to visit your blogs if you include a link! :)
