Does Rowling really think her wildly popular children’s books would have been better if they suggested that smart women are only well matched with traditionally successful men?
Apart from the fact that Ron and Hermione were made for each other, there are other galling things about Rowling’s disavowal of her narrative choices.She went with Ron and Harry because she has a really good heart. Ultimately, she had a bigger heart than she had a brain and that's saying something for Hermione. However, I like to think that Harry would be instrumental in ensuring that Snape's portrait would appear there in due course...Harry would ensure that Snape's heroism was known.""I know people really wanted some hope for that, and I can quite see why because, in a way, what happens to Neville's parents is even worse than what happened to Harry's parents.To this fan, and many others, Hermione and Ron’s slow burning romance is the best part of the series.(The book series, that is—in the film adaptations there was no chemistry between Watson and Rupert Grint.
