J.K. Rowling discussed the relationship between Harry and Hermione - as well as how Harry Potter films' screenwriter Steve Kloves interpreted it in Deathly Hallows - in the newly-released Harry, a History.
As everybody know, my English is not good enough to talk about this here (maybe in a Portuguese/Brazilian site), but I would like very much to read what my Checkmated fellows think about what she said.
My first thoughts about what she was saying was, that it was in this right moment when Ron left, that Harry could see clearly Hermione as his sister.
They got closer and she was there by his side in one of the most difficult moments for him, when they went to the grave of his parents. So this was really a strong feeling that Ron didnīt share with them.
But what annoyed me was she didnīt talk about Ron and Hermione in a romantic way:
Ron and Hermione have this combative but mutual attraction. They will always bicker, there will always be rough edges there, but they are pulled together, each has something the other needs
And mainly, what got me very angry:
Now the fact is that Hermione shares moments with Harry that Ron will never be able to participate in. He walked out. She shared something very instense with Harry.
So I think it could have gone that way.
After Kloves had showed her his point of view, after more than a year of the last book, she realised she could have gone in that way? With a Harry and Hermione romantic relationship?
And didnīt Harry say in "The Silver Doe" that he and Hermione barely talk when Ron wasnīt with them?
Well, Iīll be really glad to read your oppinions, and if this thread is in the wrong place feel free to change it.
Iīm here, by now, very sad and afraid by the Ron and Hermioneīs moments we'll have (or wonīt) on the next two movies.
